    If only Kirk would have gone to free2play/pay4charslots/pay4apartments with Neocron, and perhaps thrown it up on steam or got it on some websites we wouldn't be going through all this bullshit.

    Steam might have been a good hit, but after watching Fallen Earth, you really really have to be prepared for the hit you'll get when you release something on steam. The populations that would show up if they released on steam would be quite litterally multiples of what populations were in NC1.


    And in NC1, I remember pretty consistent 500 people minimum per server online. All the time.

    Up that to probably at least 2,000 per server on all the time, and you have a steam release. Not counting the initial shock loads and such.

    Indeed, the game world isn't big enough for that amount of people. You'd have to make like... 10 new servers.

    I think NC City is big enough for more than 5000 users, the City got so much places where nobody is.

    I'm not worried about the size of the world, I can kill a swath through people in my way as well as anyone . Just the server load.



    That may seriously be something to think about though. Maybe set up a shop for special clothes, and maybe unique PAs that provide the same benefits, but look a lot cooler. I don't approve of cashshop advantages in terms of combat, but there are lots of things you could sell to people. Once a cash shop system is set up, a release on steam could very well solve Reakktors money problems for a good while. Long enough to get some good coders and artists back to work making new content and improving whats there.

    the biggest thing that changed the game for me was when monks got nerfed to the point where you had to decide if you were going to be APU or PPU. Hybrids provided such a great middleground. Hybrids were like the PE of monks.

    glad to see you still kicking around, Mr. Drib.

    Yeah, but they were fun to playyyyyy.


    And thats coming from a guy who never PVP'd with his hybrid. Hell, I never PVP'd at all back then. More so fell over and spent 5 minutes trying to decide which genrep to go back to that had the least likelihood of getting me ganked.

    Yes and no: Definetly a lot of new things turned up after 19-02-12 (Nukklear, NC:R, Kickstarter Idea). Though after the unthinkable became reality on 31-03-12 (namely Reakktor could not be saved) there are no news since then, which is quite understandable taking the situation in regard.

    Still the servers are up and running, an able and willing volunteer team of GMs is actually running events again on terra. A lot of us forum lurkers are quite literally just waiting for Kirk to say the word to donate if the Kickstarter plans get real.

    Well I should have given you enough things to use in the search function. Or quite easily just look up Kirks posts after 19-02-12 to get informed.

    I think Reakktor isn't anymore, therefore no employees left. The new company maybe must start from nothing, but i'm surprised Neocron is still a trademark from CDV AG.
    Alles wird gut!

    irgendwann?

    hoffentlich...

    It isn't

    Meaning that the protection of the trademark has run out in 09/2011.
    (Note: Trademark protection/loss of it, does not supersede copyrights)

    But the actual value of Neocron lies within the expierience for KK, the small but highly solid fanbase and a lot nostalgica and memories.
