  1. I made a thread on my alt, on mmo champion as well, for those who are interested: http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/2335600-Open-letter-from-a-private-server-developer-an-interesting-POV-on-what-could-happen nb: yes, scylla, I know, no upboat on this one
  2. To sum it up, Crogge and Shenna, just by themselves, impacted the entirety of the private server scene this year in an incredibly negative way.
  3. First off, I doubt you'd give them "10-15k a month if needed" lol, and even in such a case, that's not what matters here: Acitivision-Blizzard became VERY active when it comes to shutting down big successful, or promising private servers. So the most important element (one that people still underestimate) is how to protect your project from them. Of course, if Blizzard announced legacy servers, then the vast majority of people would go there, but what are the chances of this happening really. nb: Like people said, this forum will be dead once the open beta's launched. We're a part of Elysium now, that's how it is.
  4. Not like Blizzard can do anything about it: the only ones they'll be interested in taking down are the people owning the project, and now it's Elysium. Darky and Asura had to deal with a lot of hate after the announcement, but honestly, it's good to know that we won't have to be worried about legal issues in the foreseeable future.
  5. I've read some stupid comments the last three weeks, but I think this one takes the cake.
  6. Crestfall's PTE server will be fine either way, this TBC server is not going to come out anytime soon (probably after CF's release) and will only be available for anathema players early on. Meaning that the elysium players will have to wait a long time beore they're able to play TBC. Also, people know that this is not crestfall's core. Crestfall's PTE server is still by far more awaited, and the elysium playerbase is huge, not to mention that a lot of other people will want to play there: do you really want to deal with 10 000-15 000 people trying to log in the first weeks? Quality brings players, and the fact that you can only play a truly good version of vanilla, tbc, wotlk, cata, mop... on the crestfall server means that it's going to be a huge success. Stop worrying about all of this, there's absolutely no reason to.
  7. Care to explain how I'm making the conversations "unbelievably stupid"? If anything, I was the one trying to defend outsanding and elicas on my recent thread against some people even though I disagree with them.
  8. I'm not sure if you're serious or not
  9. If open-sourcing is the best solution from your point of view, then I'm glad they merged with Elysium to be completely honest with you...what I've always wanted to see at the end of the day is the crestfall staff releasing this product themselves, not Elysium, twinstar and so on...I'll say it again: as long as the philosophy is the same and that the crestfall is the ONLY one touching the core, then I'm good. If the day comes when both of these features are gone...then it will be a completely different story. However, I REALLY doubt this will happen, since the CF staff would then leave the Elysium project.
  10. Elicas and outstanding have both been a huge help for the project though, and they've been around for a long time: I'm not a big fan of the way they're reacting to this, it sounds to me like they still don't even try to understand that there was literally no choice, but it doesn't mean that they should just be told to shut up or to leave this project.
  11. May I ask what other solutions you thought about to save the project then? I mean, I can't say that there's nothing wrong with Elysium, but between them and the shutdown of crestfall, it's a no-brainer, isn't it?
  12. Oh...well I didn't know that tbh. What did you do to get banned though? Since it's a merge case, they're very likely to make an exception and unban you. I mean, if they can unban Alexensual, I don't see why they wouldn't do it for you...then again, maybe you wouldn't want to play there even if you could if I understood you well.
  13. I wasn't a super big fan of the elysium merge either (although I'll admit that it doesn't bother me nearly as muh), but between this and the project shutdown, it's a no-brainer really. I know you were a big help during the development process, but try to put yourselves in Asura's and Darkrasp's position: Asura's American and just witnessed what happened to Felmyst, Darkrasp and him both have to deal with a lot of shit, hate from a lot of people (Crogge too), now their costs are taken care of, the project is guaranteed to have a future thanks to the Russian ownership, the philosophy remains the same, Crogge will be the sysadmin and so on... I really think you're all overexaggerating how bad this is. Also, how could they not be annoyed by all those "lolol the project is dead" posts when they're actually doing all they can to give it a long life? Anyways let's agree to disagree about all this.
  14. Finding it amusing that you've become such an entitled guy...funny how people can change.
  15. I just put the thread I was talking about on the discord on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/wowservers/comments/6vakch/a_sumup_of_all_that_happened_yesterday/ I know that many of you guys won't like my POV, but do feel free to comment on it if you want to. Thank you.
