As long as IPY 2.5 comes out before the golden lands and we see a boost in pop then it may be a awesome idea! It gives new players a reason to join the server and begin without dealing with all the rich ass people that already exist in IPY 2.0 a shard within a shard if you will. Sounds like he's on the verge of a ton of great ideas if this is just one of many. You guys just need to simmer down keep up with the current gameplay and let the staff do what they do best, think of great new ideas to enhance current gameplay. Even if it takes forever and a day.. :P
Glorious idea. Factions, UOR pvp, MOUNTS! God damn you did it..I just wish I didnt have to grind all new characters.
The more I think about this idea, the more I like it.
As Az Has said, it just gives more options and brings in potentially new people. There really isn't a bad side imo. Sure you may have to grind new characters, but you don't HAVE to.
And then my players begin to come around.
It's a fairly complex and very different concept. It's easy to hate at first glance, I understand that. But I think it's all upside, and you might too if you give it a chance.
I personally don't like T2A PvP compared to UOR PvP, so now if I feel like I want something different I just have to pop over to the other facet. If I wanted to try that other style of PvP I'd have to roll on another shard anyway, at least here I'm still with my guild and we don't have to start over completely from scratch because of the community structure already built up here.
To build on this and to bring in an even greater playerbase, I think staff needs to hire a few Seers to really drive this Undead Invasion. I remember the old Undead Invasion in Trinsic back in the day with Juo'nar and Mallabelle.. it was awesome, there was so much activity day in and day out in Trinsic it made you want to log in and see what was going on. I get UO nerd goosebumps just thinking about it. If we can get that same kind of interaction it would be awesome!
