The patch with the skill locks was perfect. I also believe that was the Cleanup Britannia days where I got a bad-ass purple goatee. Whats needed: 1 Account per person. 5 character slots. No real money exchange for items, gold or character perks. Exact clone of t2a/fall/1998 plus enhancements: Anti cheat system, no more scripting and speed-hacking. (If I have to install something to spy on my computers processes I don't give a **** if it gets rid of the lamers.) seige R-o-T skill gain for combat skills, regular for crafting. Super Anal Gestapo GMs (Wouldn't be the same game without 'em.) Hardcore siege economy (3x prices, less gold drops from monsters, cant sell to vendors.) No mounts -- A lot of people will slam me for this. No neon ****. No quests. Classic Client upgrades for new computer rigs (I haven't played in a long long time but I'm guessing a windowed client 800x600 running on a 1080p display isn't a whole lot of fun.) Old artwork, old animations, old sounds, old font, old music. Note to EA-Quit teasing me you jerks by throwing around the thoughts of classic shard. And you're not getting a penny from me UNTIL this stuff or something close to it is on a test center of some sort. Teasing me is not gonna convince me to play on your current shards, sorry not my kind of game.
