    1. Turkey maps are so CLEAR on the enhanced client compared to the woeful maps on 2d

    2. item intensities and so much more detailed on the enhanced client, imbuing info etc

    why are these INTENTIONALLY left off the 2d client?

    we pay the same money to play either so lets get the balance RIGHT
    i just trained item ID skill on classic and it sound like you dont NEED it on enhanced

    so is this a way to bully classic client players to move across? or just the way the future is going,

    neglect as i see it here

    what is going on please?

    The answer here is pretty simple.

    The Classic Client is... well its old. And very difficult to add new features to. The Enhanced Client is designed in such a way that it is very simple for us to make minor modifications and improvements.

    We definitely haven't abandoned the Classic Client. We will still put every effort in to add these new features to both clients, but sometimes the amount of time it would take to implement them in the Classic Client just isn't worth it.

    Game development is a constant risk vs. reward analysis. We want to spend our time on things that will get us the "most bang for the buck".

    If you are seeing features in the Enhanced Client that you like and your computer can handle it, maybe you should give it another shot. :)
