Allow me to clarify something first, if you decide to bash anyone or any idea in this thread then prepare to have your post removed. It is possible to give constructive criticism without launching attacks on someone or something.

The purpose of this thread is to ask some simple questions to gain an understanding from you the players. I'm not going to assume you only play here and nowhere else. Pserver players are a finicky crowd. You don't get what you want here, you might play elsewhere and vice-versa.

  1. What aspects of BfDW do you like?
  2. What about BfDW do you not like?
  3. What is missing from this server that would make you play on another server?
  4. If you moved from another server to BfDW, what motivated you to make that switch?
  5. Has the game itself (even on OS) became stale? That is, you're simply tired of playing shalya in any form.
  6. What is your favorite MMO to play, if not shalya?

If the server is , what are you doing looking at my signature?
if offline, go do my dishes.

1.What aspects of BfDW do you like?
even though we lack quantity - I feel we have some quality people here that understand and appreciate the goals that most of us desire here in terms of a great P-Server.
I feel we have a solid GA foundation - Even though Real Life has had its challenges on many of us GA's and GM's lately.

2.What about BfDW do you not like?
Unfortunatley, I'm going to make Regix smile - I agree with the lvl 7 lapis. Imagine a pvp zone where battles actually lasted more then .45 seconds. With the lvl 7 lapis in gear - battles dont last very long. I've heard this often, "whats the point of healing, you dead before i cant get one heal off.

3.What is missing from this server that would make you play on another server?
Consistent PVP - if i was to choose one thing. I do understand, there is no such thing as pvp 24 hours a day, because it just doesnt exist.

4.If you moved from another server to BfDW, what motivated you to make that switch?
Broken promises on another server led to the switch here. Don't use a tactic to pull people to your server and then not own up to what and why you brought them. Be a person of your word.

5.Has the game itself (even on OS) became stale? That is, you're simply tired of playing shalya in any form.
I've been playing some form of shalya for 3 years now since it's release on OS. I was one of the first closed beta testers on OS. There is a large lvl of boredom that I do experience with the game. The one thing that does always bring me back is the potential of exciting and great pvp. We all know that it has tons of potential when done right.

6.What is your favorite MMO to play, if not shalya?
At this time there is nothing out there that i car playing. I dont care for grind fests. I'm a father of 3 amazing, young children so financially, I'm not really able to play a pay to play game. So, in the past 3 years I have dabled in many different games, but shalya based games have brought me back - and D-Water is where I'm at.

1. What aspects of BfDW do you like?
-Being the only Ep4 server it seems out there, that's a plus for this server. Most Ep5 servers are junk. Exp rates are fair, nothing challenging, but still takes some time.
-Something else I like is the fact that if someone has a nub moment which we all do at times, especially in pvp if someone drops a weapon, most of the time players just return it w/o asking for anything.

2. What about BfDW do you not like?
-Good gear seems to drop way to easily and defeats the purpose of boss farming.
-Lack of "community" atmosphere that I find on other shalya Pservers and MMO's in general.

3. What is missing from this server that would make you play on another server?
I think Mesh nailed this one on the spot. BfDw has a great farming market. It's rather easy to get gear. However, any PvP fanatic would probably leave this server due to the lack of good PvP.

4. If you moved from another server to BfDW, what motivated you to make that switch?
Hmm. I guess Regix got me here back for Closed Beta Testing, which was surprisingly over 6 months ago. Wow. I had previously played other Pservers, but I was getting bored of the general heavy use of Lapisia and Nosses. I thought this server had good rates and lack of Nosses and Lapisia, I was hoping for some good PvP.

5. Has the game itself (even on OS) became stale? That is, you're simply tired of playing shalya in any form.
-Yeah, shalya becomes stale after a while if you log in and don't do anything. There's really not much Pservers can offer in terms of expansions, so they have to be really good at what they do currently to keep players. So I guess the biggest question, is how can you keep it entertaining?

6. What is your favorite MMO to play, if not shalya?
-Dungeon Fighter Online. Wish there was a Pserver out there as the commercial is somewhat long grind, and requires a lot of $$$ out of pockets to get full experience. What I like about it there though, it's different for a MMO. It's a 2D fighter for lack of other words. PvP there, is really based on skill. I've seen low leveled people completely destroy a high leveled character that was "purchased" for lack of other words.

here's my two cents
here's my two cents
1. What aspects of BfDW do you like?
being based on pvp and no enchanting/nossing
2. What about BfDW do you not like?
it seems that only one side wants to pvp at a given time so its been a while since ive seen some good pvp. 7s are pretty op no lies, but ive gotten to a point where i can survive long enough with pots to kill someone.
3. What is missing from this server that would make you play on another server?
cant really think of anything except more consistent pvp i guess
4. If you moved from another server to BfDW, what motivated you to make that switch?
i moved from os because of uber enchanting ruined shayia lol. when im doing 1-100 damage on someone and they are hitting me for 4k... something isnt right here. oh yea, and CONSTANTLY getting pkd and hunted while grinding in anywhere above lan. hence why i dont kill grinders lol
5. Has the game itself (even on OS) became stale? That is, you're simply tired of playing shalya in any form.
grinding in general i dont feel like anymore. i absolutely love to pvp though which never gets boring.
6. What is your favorite MMO to play, if not shalya?
id have to say its a toss up between shayia and kingdom heroes

1. What aspects of BfDW do you like? The active GM's/GA's and no noss or enchants.

2. What about BfDW do you not like? much to easy to get 60 gear and not much pvp recently.

3. What is missing from this server that would make you play on another server? Lack of pvp is making people leave, and i think flash rings should be added to game at a low drop rate

4. If you moved from another server to BfDW, what motivated you to make that switch? Got bored of OS and evo got closed so i came here.

5. Has the game itself (even on OS) became stale? That is, you're simply tired of playing shalya in any form. i still think shalya is a brilliant game my favourite MMO.

6. What is your favorite MMO to play, if not shalya? Don't play any others.

What aspects of BfDW do you like? GM's and GA's that are fair and random boss spawns/events.
What about BfDW do you not like? not enough ppl and pvp. and not enough hard mobs/guards to kill in new map.

What is missing from this server that would make you play on another server? pvp

If you moved from another server to BfDW, what motivated you to make that switch? this server doesn't have enchants and my friends are here.

Has the game itself (even on OS) became stale? That is, you're simply tired of playing shalya in any form. yes, been playing so long that there's not much challenge to it anymore besides farming and improving your gear. Could use more upper lvl quests, for soloing and parties alike. Or even make it be possible to lvl to 70. would give us more to do. (new maps with new quests in new pvp zones)


What is your favorite MMO to play, if not shalya? Aion, although I don't have time for it.

So one way to make the BfDw experience really stand out would be to offer something new an unique to the players. Here's something I just want to bounce off some people.

Within the Ep4 database, there's a lot of maps that aren't used period. So what if the server would make a few of them use able? Stick some interesting bosses or so on the maps and bam something new to offer. Could even make it more interesting and make it have requirements to get to the new map. Take out a boss, or hold some relics to get the map open (talking Jungle/DD1 Ep3 style). Or anything else to get a different atmosphere and make BfDw unique.

I like the times when you needed to have Med in order to enter the maps. I wouldn't mind seeing the Altars made harder to kill so people couldn't pop them so easy solo and to have them as a key for opening the Jung/DD maps.

Well I can tell you, right now Battle For Dwater is in Ep4 still so we don't even have access to the Ep5 skills. The GM's could make skills here match to the Ep5 levels, but they would also have to fix some other things to equate for the damage those skills dish out.
