Started on Devianne back when shots weren't automated and you damn near got arthritis clicking them; back when making it just to level 10 took a few days; back when agro Trees scared the sh** out of everybody;  back when players would regularly get PK'ed coming out of the serpentine tunnel from DE Village; back when you dropped items on death, especially that Cedar Staff that took you forever to save up enough adena to buy; back when you actually had to decide if you were going to spend money on shots or go without, because you couldn't afford to hunt with them all of the time and still afford other equipment; back when no one could afford to use teleports, so you ran everywhere; and if you did teleport to Gludio, your computer would likely lock up for several minutes because the lag was that bad; back when everyone's new best friend was either a dwarf crafter or a buffer/healer.

That is so true!  I remember those days well!

Some of my old clans - beginning clans - from Devianne:  DarkLight (May/June 2004), Mercenaries (best Clan by far, started summer of 2004 - Auri, Greenie, Mars, Unem (just wow), Neo, lots more, old gang - was there til the end), Bloody Pirates, Syndicate, etc. Spent some time.... with Wretched Outcasts there long afterwards (yes - Slycutter.....funny, we fought them in the first big Siege at Heine castle back in the day [I died at least a dozen times during that siege - but took at least twice as many....lots of running back!], and we ended up together for a time....actually, pretty good guy)...those were the days.  I remember that first giant Siege near Dion in 2004 - - talk about lag, that was crazy....but so much fun!

Started out on Devianne during Prelude (April-May 2004).  Character is Styxess, and yes, also started out (and stayed) on Devianne for as long as it was there.  Been gone here and there a lot - but was fairly serious back in the day (2005-2008).  Then got deployed with the Army, a few times.  Came back, and they changed the login, and wiped out my character (a lot of work gone).  I play extremely casual now - cam back last fall of 2017, after being gone for over 5 years (I was not happy with NCSoft for wiping my character while I was deployed - nothing I could do about that, and they didn't give a da@n).  I'm just working back - 103 (Feoh Storm Screamer...as always)/100 (Feoh Archmage).  Game has changed a lot.

 Mach5 AW main, formerly ShellShock Duelist main

 I believe Kain when I first started, later Bartz

 102

 Before GoD I think I only quit playing twice, one for a very short amount of time. Since GoD I've probably quit playing 6-7 times, game isn't the same to me anymore.

How many players from 2004/2005 still "actively playing" everyday?  I'm curious since I'm one of them, still kicking daily and not dead yet. :S  I'm from SoCal (southern California) and my oldest original character is Kannouteki light elf female archer from Seighardt.  Since GoD, I expanded to 7 full characters, multi-boxer.  Today as of 03/27/18 she's Lv.104 @ 42.97%.  I quit 7 times in 14 years, never let game affect my career.  That's important!! :) 

If you are still playing today, introduce yourself:

1. Where you're from

2. Char name and class

3. Original server

4. Level and % today

5. How many times did you quit and come back?

How many of us are left?  Less than 20, more?  Way off, close?

 

1. Vietnamese

2.Early was SWS/Glad then Paladin/ISS and now Eva/ISS

3.Old Bartz/Chronos(HennessyVSOP) - Magmeld/Freya(Hennessy) and now Chronos.

4.105/105

5. I start from beta then quit in 2010 then 2015 comeback till now.

Lost all my old accounts after NCSoft didn't believe I was genuine owner then server merge deleted it all. I had an original beta a/c too with all the annual rewards. >:(
Server merges and change in game by removing old gameplay style of crafting etc. pushed me away for years.
I just came back again to have a look after another year away and find its all change again.
No adventurer items for D etc., can't ask for help from players as no chat option and GM petition is offline.

The old version of the game had mystique, atmosphere and an addictive charm. All this endgame philosophy has killed it.

Don't fall for the new Jewel event.   It truly blows.   NCSoft is sticking to the players yet again.   This event is a game killer for sure.  Lots better ways to spend your time.
