Thing is with people saying back in the good old days is we can feel their relation to whatever they relate to but for us, there's no background.
If a newcomer comes to me and says: I like this and that about URU in 2020. Ok fine!
But from my own experience, they missed "my good old time", the time when we could do so much in MOULa. People were jumping everywhere, there were marker quests to go about everywhere with combo jumping, I don't remember the term used but it was some sort of glitching. Then came the "hackers era" with the Fun House around 2011-12 and endless evenings of mixology mayhem and weird stuff. I remember Plasmaclient with the strange looking polygons and vertices of different colours.
Those are things of the past. I enjoyed them while they were there but now it is history. I hardly log in MOULa anymore. I find it quite dull after what I went through. And mind you, when I first put my feet in the Cavern, that it is what I've been served by older folks that were there before MOULa. I was hearing: "Yes it is great MOULa is around but you missed so much of the rich history and the development done during Gametap, the D'mala shard, the Until Uru shards, the parties that went there!, etc." I remember being in hoods with nearly full capacity (Guild of Greeters' Bevin). Then the city was full every evenings with older and newer folks. It was great time, I learned a lot. But then older folks (not all of them, I know many are still around) started losing interest. The server was and still in a halt storywise. They moved to other things. I don't blame them, their "URU" is not mine and not yours either.
I find it funny in a way because it is true; I'll never experienced what they went through. With that being said, I'm trying not to become like them. Ok fine I had real great moments but the game is not over; there are great development still. Fan-base wise, we are served with top notch ages nowadays, Denost & Dulcamara set the bar high, they both created worlds rather than ages. I'm on MOULa Staging Server since earlier today, not as Theodore, already taken??? maybe someone else goes by that name, anyway. There are still developments. People are still involved.
I'm looking forward exactly for that: new ages, new developments. I've been silent mostly up until DIRT Descent became available for the general public. But I was there in the shadows, doing my stuff, being there!
I think you misinterpreted my saying "Goood Ooolllddd Dddaaayyss"
I've always been very direct and trying to be funny. I'm not insulting anyone here! In fact, I kept a silent stance all those years because of the vitriolic posts going back and forth between many members of this community, now with the big picture, URU being there for almost 19-20 years I can see why there were resentment back in 2010 when everything went back online, it was not the thing they expected.
With that said, I'll try to be part of the next expeditions in upcoming Mondays and sorry to hijack this thread but I felt it needed to be addressed.
