Anybody feeling nostalgic?

Recommended Posts

I was recalling moments from my time playing EL, 6-7 years ago, and I have to say they were the best times I had in this game. Maybe it was because I was a child back then, didn't really care for many of the changes that happened then and just went with it.


I remember the naralik arena showdowns Korrode hosted, I remember c2 just being introduced, I remember when there were no caps, when KF was still drops and the NDD weekends where everybody gathered round to PK and attend invasions. I remember training cyclops in Egratia Point, I remember not having bronze swords and MoLs. I recall getting a full iron set and being asked if it was the 'new' titanium armor. I remember when the dp arena (the only one back then) was very active and people were always PKing there. I recall the faster attack animations, the newly introduced great weapons, the great fun we had in PK, without any 200 HP harms and no ranging.


I also remember a time when charm didnt do anything, when rationality only gave you bonus exp, when people were just going for p/c builds with a touch of will or vitality, without any cap restrictions. The poor graphics, the outdated armor textures, these were all better than what we have now tbh, at least IMHO, gave the game that old school look. Ah, the fun we had at white stone arena, nordcarn, KF, even TD at times.


I think many can relate to this. I'd love to see a game where all this was possible again, basically just rollback the game to 2006~ on a new server, even use outdated textures and such. For me at least, those were the best times I've ever had in an online game. The new MMORPGs out there cannot compare to the oldschool feeling EL once gave.

A few players I remember: duduc94, garnoo (good rl friends<3), fryslan(best friend in the game, still talk to him), kadlub :D, fatboyjaxx, ezmeralda, xenamt, toomass, maslicka, tiny, istiach, joskic, shocker, sniper, doctor/warlock, bellali/dammess, mmarx/hexa, james07(pro at dpa :D), peach, tommyknocker, st_arcane and ofc pro pkers like ohmygod, tempest, force, pookies, luciferx, mufossa, siarato+ambrosius, ozmondius .. probably many more, can't think of atm :D


Here are some videos/images of what EL looked 6-7 years ago.








I for one would like to see a new server of EL, to start it all over again, without all the unnecessary newschool enhancements, but I know it is just a dream, since nobody will be arsed to make one, let alone to start again with their skills at 0 - I would, but I know I'm an exception.


Do share some old videos/pics if you have, I love to reminisce :>

Tho I agree that the oldschool way was amazing and the funniest I have had in the game, I now know way to much about the future of the game to ever want it to go back to the way it was... The changes we all had to go threw is part of the survival of the game and without them the game would have not survived... Tho some of the changes I do agree were not as well thought out, all of them kept the game from sinking to a state of un-use... My personal opinion is let the past be the past and enjoy making the best of the future...


Tho a lil reminisce is uplifting for the memory of the journey...


I remember when everyone harvested in WS by the sun flowers till raven was moved, I remember the old school events when the then "old school" players would compleat for who knew more secrets about the game, I remember no cooldowns and how many many people threw a fit and left and #del there account only to come back and wine about not getting there storage back because they had to do a rollback to get there account back on the server... I remember when the fluffy rabbit came out and it was the strongest creature there was, I remember when an iron set and serp sword were the best armor/wep anyone could hope to get, I remember when people made there shit instead of buying it, I remember the first person to buy a CoL and break it in the first day(then got another free)... I remember far more, both good and bad. I remember the turning of friends, the people who came and left and I remember when you were good or bad but never In between like most are today...


Tho I don't care to c the old ways come back I would like to c the interactions of the old players with the new updates :)


I tip my hat to Radu and Roja for the many years(and $) they have put into this amazing game and to all the influential members who took the basic guidelines of the game and built the styles we use today...


Looking back in life is a great way to celebrate all the great times we have had but for me I look to the future for the past is set in stone and the future is ready for writing
