    i've tried it before, i had it downloaded logged in kr once or twice a month at most but i don't care for it at all, reformatted my comp recently and haven't redownloaded it. How many people actually play and enjoying playing uo in kingdom reborn? I mean seriously i don't think the number is that high and if EA would realize that they would just abandon work on KR and add more content to 2d

    *raises hand* playing, enjoying. It still needs a lot of work to polish and improve performance, but my imagination has finally made the flip. I can't go back to looking at 2D any more without wincing.

    I do, but then I used to play 3d as well, so most people will think I'm weird! I still miss the resizeable containers from 3d.

    Some really good things about KR are the hotbars and the quick dress macro (it's instant and simultaneous for all items, not like UOA where you equip each item individually and wait before equipping the next).

    I've even been using KR during the Moonglow event because, although it's not ideal for seeing the threads or the special effects, I can zoom out so I can see enemies at the edge of my view before I would see them in 2d.

    I also play KR and I also used to play 3D, I just can't really stand the magic effects in 2D

  9. Well, EA knows exactly how much KR is used. They monitor how many players log in with KR and how many with 2D. Atleast so I have heard.

    This is exactly why the last event was "optimized for 2D" as Draconi indicated.

    I sure hope so. I log on after an update then get sick and log off. It is handy if you want to change someone's access to a house. (assuming the access list is short enough.) I certainly don't try to do anything in KR - I find it ugly and unplayable.

  15. I have tried KR just 3 times. I have always used 2D and always prolly will, if noone forces me to use 3D. BUT, I still think SA should support only KR. If it's true that engine KR is using has A LOT of potential, but it cannot be used cause server has to support 2D also, I think 2D should be removed.

    Us old farts who have played with 2D almost 10 years (some even more) will be angry for a while or maybe we even leave, but it would give UO a chance to success and be massivemorpg instead of this lack of players on most of shards by gaining new players.

  17. I use it every time I go to Heartwood, and can't imagine why anyone would want to do anything there without using KR. I'd use it exclusively if they'd fix the random crashing. That's the only thing keeping me from switching over 100%.

  19. I play it sometimes. Right now I let my wife use my computer that actually can run KR fairly well because her computer died. Once we replace her computer I very well may use KR as my main client.

    Ewwwwy. Sorry, but the developers have yet to develop a graphics system that will pull me away from the original 2d look. The 3d and now KR clients would actually make me quit if I were forced to use them...la

    The KR client is AMAZING! if all your doing is bank sitting or role playing or perhaps crafting....

    Seriously I like to PVP and go to the gauntlet and peerless and stuff which the KR client obviously was not designed for.

    PVP is completely out of the question. Places like the gauntlet and peerless where your required to be quick are also out of the question. The sluggish response is enough to get you killed every time and the new GUI that is supposed to be so amazing is actually just a pain to use and slow to navigate through.

    I use it for PvP and PvM. I still use 2D for my BOD Running and crafting, though I am finding it easier to mine in KR.

    I think some of the graphics on kingdom reborn are awesome but I still love and play 2d. Now my husband on the other hand only plays kingdom reborn and said he wouldn't go back to 2d.

    I use KR about 70% of the time. I still use 2D for events (Mag/Moon), otherwise there isn't so much lag.

    The things I like about KR... The navigation speed. The 1 button spell casting. Ability to set different kinds of potions to different keys. The ability to take 10 chops from a tree with 1 button. The ability to take 100+ mining digs with 1 button. 1 button looting(includes 'stackable(gold)'). The ground graphics look seemless, not squares. Alot less monsters use the same graphic(efreets/air eles).

    The things I like about 2D... I'm used to it(have played for 9 years). The 'Last Target' macro ability(meaning consider the last place targeted to be targeted agian) I haven't been able to find that ability in KR yet. 2D can be optimized to handle lag better.

    That's all I can think of off the top of my head.

    No... that would be because the main program and effects were written before KR was out of closed beta... this was made as the last "2D exclusive" event.

    I play KR maybe 5% of the time I play and the rest, 95%, I do in 2d.


    There are many things which are good in KR, but these should have been put into the 2d client instead of making an KR client.
    The main reason I do not play KR is the inability to use the legacy backpack, it's just totally screwed up, the inability to figure out when I can start running again while stealthing, the inability to resize every container instead of resizing the whole UI, the crafting gumps are horrible, most items looking totally out of place, too big and just blurry, movement of character, wearable grafics .......

    What I do like is mainly the big map, the ability to mark crafted items as quest items upon crafting (I never used it though), the macro hot bar, the infos about dci, hci, lrc, the spell effects, many monster grafics and some more stuff.

    All in all the bad parts of KR are more significant to me than the good parts of it.

    I use the KR client around 80% of the time. I go back to 2D for events, stocking vendors, house design/decorating, and for plants.

    I like the flexibility of the macros and being able to customize the UI. There many items that still need to be cleaned up, not to mention the more pressing problems. The KR client has so much potential. It would be a shame for it to remain unfinished.

  47. KR is still sprites just higher resolution :p

    Anyway back to topic I play KR almost exclusively. After playing wow (eek) for so long KR interface feels much more natural and even though I've tried, I just can't get used to the legacy client interface

    Only problem with KR I really have is the random crashes, would suck if that happened in doom/peerless run lol.
