Heed my warning! Im sorry if this question has already been answered somewhere in those vast text-walls, but Id like a discussion about this. I love 2d client, and I think I represent a great volume of players who do NOT want a 3d client. I grew up with atari, then nes, the snes/sega genesis. Then, about the time I was about out of high-school, they made the N64. I distinctly remember me and my friends being like 'nah...Im not down'. And we still aren't. Sure, I've enjoyed some good 3d fighting games (tekken) but for the most part, ALL my favorite games are 2d. zelda. The first one was awesome. the one for snes was one of the best games ever made! If you've played/loved it, try to remember what those graphics were like. Seem familiar? I think I also speak for vast volume of people who do NOT have a duo-core computer to run said 3d client properly. (I personally don't even have a video card in my machine. onboard ftw!) Im not saying botch the whole thing. Im sure it will attract new gamers. These kids love their 3d x-box games. I guess I feel kinda... betrayed. Most of me and my mates have been playing this game since back when we were freshmen in highschool! Think about the amount of money we've dumped into this thing, and all they can think about doing is NOT fixxing any of our issues with our beloved 2dclient, and dumping our funds into a client that ONLY caters to kids who have never played/paid a dime to UO! I guess I feel like thats not fair. Theres other ways to expand the player base. For example, pay attention to us! Pretend, at least, that you care about where our 13 - 100 dollars a month is going! So, my question (finally) is: What are you going to do with the 2d client? Are you botching it? Or, are you going to keep it around for us 'oldschoolers' and completely neglect it and spend your time catering to the supporters of the SA client. Because you know what? I for one, he who has two accounts able to ride any mount in the game, will NEVER play SA. Im sorry, I know you're trying hard for this, but I simply refuse. Im just oldschool like that and I refuse to learn a new system. SO, all im saying, is heed my warning:: throw out/neglect 2d, and you WILL lose a vast sum of your VETERAN player base. Mark my words. I mean, if we wanted to play wow, we would! I watched a buddy play it all night once.. It was boring. Lots of flashy graphics, but im telling you, that game has no soul!
