Hey guys, I know Cleroth is going through some health issues lately, hopefully it's not too serious!

I'm posting on behalf of my own concerns towards people's interest in the project.

When it was announced that the server was finally gonna wipe, I got really excited aswell as many many others. I know many people had left the server due to the updates simply stalling and no frequent announcements being made about it.

Lately I realised that Cleroth had begun posting his updating, fixes and other kinds of coding progress. This is basically what dedicated players want to see, I'm not planning to play any other server again besides Olympia, this might even be the last time. Good job on posting updates, I've always wondered why you didn't do this, as it's a HUGE motivational factor for players who have experienced ALOT of hosts who are just greedy for the money.. (cough brandon)
I hope you and the rest of your crew will continue working hard and posting the progress :)

To the point. I know preparing this server bugfree for the official launch isn't easy, well actually I know shit about coding so that's kind of a lie. What I do want to make clear though, is that when you announce that the server is gonna be restarted and kinda gives the impression that it's going to happen ''soon'' it should not take like 6 months or so, because then it would seem to most people that Olympia isn't at high priority, that really scares away hopefull players and might be the difference between 300 online and 200 online. I'm not saying I'm an expert project developer, but it's to my knowlegde that as long as a ''status report'' is announced atleast every week during development(like you've almost done so far), people will see that the crew is dedicated and will keep their hopes and motivation up for the launch.

I hope you will continue to update your future population with excactly what is up atm. I would also really appreciate some kind of info on wether there's alot left to fix or if you are getting close to the final stages of development.

I'm basically stalking the forums, hoping for a new announcement or a countdown sometime during febuary, fingers crossed :)

Peace

No offense, but posting a long ass post in the "Beta talk" forum all while making no precise point probably doesn't do much to help the progress either. I get that you're impatient and all, but maybe it's best to keep it focused. The 'but really, can't you give us more information?' question was last answered... just a few days ago, where Cleroth precisely warned that he probably couldn't provide any for a few days.

If you read between the lines, I'm encouraging what's already being done and stressing it even abit more.

On Legion and last olympia there was really a lack of dedication in periods of up to weeks and sometimes months. As Cleroth says, the old ass code kinda made him wanna puke.
I'm not trying to ''help the progress'' but rather telling him to keep the topic updated, which he mentioned in the frontpage announcement to look at.

I also stated that I know about the current health condition which always comes first.
So instead of posting it in a single post within a topic somewhere to be overlooked by alot of people, my advice would be to put it under the updating thread below 16th january updates. Someone would basically have to read through the whole topic (beta server online) to find the reason(page 14) for the thread stalling atm. When you enter the update thread from the link at the frontpage, you would easily get guided away from that thread at the bottom of the first post ''See this next topic for further updates'' and would already be out of the topic with the piece of info mentioned above :) So alot of people might miss it.




And yea I AM in jail and it's boring as fuck, I have nothing to do atm besides sleeping and eating, so impatience really is a tough nut to crack.. :|

Ps. I did find a bug.

Since I'm playing with a smartphone internet in the middle of nowhere atm, I get alot of lagspikes.

It seems that when I try to drop items while lagging, my client crashes ALOT if I drop like 2-3 items while lagging.


Edit: I won't be online to spam the forums the next couple of days, sending my smartphone back out, it's simply too risky to have it here atm, raids going on non stop..

Yea yea it's good riddance, ikr :geek:

I changed my mind though, having no internet is simply too depressing, i'd rather risk the 1000$ phone.

As long as I know it's pissing you off, it will be a reward in itself ;) ....................

The bug does however persist, and everytime it results in me being unable to login again for about 5 minutes because ''the account is in use'' anyways good luck with that.

Jail is the very reason I am bored enough to check a dead forum non stop, the connection is too slow to play games with any kind of joy, good enough to watch low quality porn and to read and type messages.

But if it's so anoying to post ideas, suggestions, opinions and bugs(can't have that on a forum, wtf are you doing) maybe I should not care. I might aswell go troll some other dead helbreath forum :idea: :arrow:

naah screw it, i'll play runescape! :D
