Hmm, well, Joa, if you let your chars keep sleeping *now*, you might never be able to wake them up again. Could one month of maybe-maybe-not playing now be worth the possibility of returning some time in the future?


Also, at this very moment there's ~50 players on Order, and over 100 on Chaos. These numbers are pretty representative.

Not that i'm a former Guildmate and you'd be interested in what i have to say ...

Nonetheless i want to inform you, that i won't resubscribe to HZ - thus not letting any old Unity Character be revived.

To me, HZ was my first step into MMORPGs, i learned a lot, met a lot of nice and helpful - and also a few disgusting and malevolent - players.
I achieved most of what i wanted in HZ (*points at the pin on his chest reading "I soloed Valkor!"*), so there would be no real aim left.

This, and the fact that i see no future for the game with the current owners/developers of HZ, i rather let my chars sleep and get reminded to them in a far future, when i'm old and gray, hopping my grandchildren on my knees.

To all the returners though - hope you get the fun you are hoping for!

Hi Hagen,

Your opinion matters just like everyone else's. So, thanks for letting us know about your plans.
Besides, at this point the original OOR guild is pretty small, so it would be silly of us, not to think about everybody else here.

I really understand your point of view, and soloing Valkor is some impressive gameplay, right there smile.gif Congrats! hehe

One point however I have to disagree with: The current owners/devs are the original Tulga employees: So it does have a future, even if horribly limited.


best,
Arcat

@Hag: Hey of course we wanted to know your thoughts, that's why the thread was moved to the general area of the forum. smile.gif

@Joa: Perhaps you're wiser than me then, I'm going to end up with active subs to 3 MMOs, heh. But I suspect for me it will break down as Vanguard: casual, WoW: one scheduled evening a week, Horizons: occasional. Then there's the Vanguard modding and all the RL stuff... feel free to tell me I'm crazy. wink.gif


Now something I'm wondering, what exactly is the euphemism "letting the characters sleep" being used for here? Let's be clear about this, there are I think only 3 options:

1) Transfer and maintain active subscription (your amount of actual play time may vary) - your characters are active
2) Transfer then cancel subscription - your characters are inactive but can be returned to if desired in the future
3) Don't transfer - RIP characters, they will almost certainly not be playable in the future

Don't get me wrong, I can understand choosing option 3. Horizons was something we had in the past, we moved on, better to just let it go. Perhaps if I had more willpower I'd do the same, heh.

Personallly though, I'm a dragon-lover and there is no other game with playable dragons. And the lack of transfered novians actually creates game content for me.

Has there actually been any *significant* change since Unity's shutdown?
I've been following the forums for a while but I am not sure about client performance improvements and the like.

Can someone summarize the bigger changes without pointing me to a link to the off. forums smile.gif)

Thanks

Biggest change is the rename =)

Another change worth to mention is for sure the Confectioner redesign and the Unity import smile.gif
There were a couple of minor updates Unity didn't get and after the final takeover, but that's just database tweaks.

There is a new client on Blight with a wholly revamped terrain manager. It increases performance a fair bit, but unfortunately still has some bugs (including CTD bugs) that need to be resolved before it can be put live. In addition to this, there have been several small, but nice changes in it, such as dragon hatchlings being able to glide from heights, and item inscriptions (not descriptions) finally showing up in the item tooltip, etc.

There have been two events since VI took over. One recycled (Halloween) and one brand new (Gnomekindle - Christmas). None of the old, great building/fighting events, but still, they're events!

Apart from these there have been a plethora of other small fixes and changes, and probably something else significant that I have forgotten.

Well if I said I let my characters sleep it included the chance that they will sleep forever. Well about the willpower, heh plan been to let them sleep and at some it may enter the sleep forever state. Oh well with all the discusion already I am not sure if I am not weakening and jump to option 2) before it's too late.

Hi Joa,

Thanks for letting us know your decision. In 2006 I'd also have preferred Order, but the population count is something I think I'll like.
Maurice said earlier to Sor that he's not importing his character as well.


This means for me personally green lights for Chaos - unless someone wants to throw in his/her Veto smile.gif


Update: I'll be importing ALL guildmules and drop 4 of them after the first month.
That should be more than enough time to trade contents of the mules to another member.

best,
Arcat

Think I've changed my mind now after a lot of thought, vanguard seems to be a one way ride to total raiding, which is not for me there is more freedom in Hz, anyway I've opened up a 6 month account on chaos see how it goes also sent email to transfer maurice_wind to new account. lack of decent plots seems the biggest problem, people with overfull vaults and no where to put their stuff. Btw Jamie seems to like playing horizons I'll see how it goes, oh doers anyone have any idea how long it takes?

Your transfer should be handled in a matter of days - sometime in next week, in other words. As for the plots, a lot of them will open up with the plot reclamation that will start some time after the Unity transfers are completed. There are a few plots still where you can put up a Saris manor or so, to unload your vault in the interim. Glad to have you back, Maurice. smile.gif

And you know you can't let Joa, Bele and Mele just fade away into the night, Joa. smile.gif

I'm off to singapore again Sunday evening I'll be there about 9 or 10 days, just wondering about my laptop which runs vista, I heard that hz does not support vista, but some people may have managed to do it, has anyone got any experience about this?. Also I had a dragon goldenwing on a seperate account in unity think I'll try to transfer it to the same chaos account. Have one new character opened up on chaos called Ragnaroth just to look around but my RL son Jamie seems to be on that char a lot just now.

That's right, HZ has lots of problems with Vista. Some people have luck and it runs perfectly, for others it runs haphazardly, for other it doesn't run at all. There is a thread in the hardware forum on community.istaria.com with several different suggestions you can try to make it run.
