Are you looking forward to Regenesis patch?
« on: November 15, 2013, 10:21:22 pm »
Hello.

Have you ever thought of Monkey Dynasty getting the new Regenesis patch? Or perhaps make a totally different server with Regenesis, since this is a complete revamp of the game itself, so it would be a massive update on Monkey Dynasty as we know it now.

It's a new expansion PWE is implementing, including a new Etherkin race (Psychea and Etherkin factions), a pair of additional classes, graphics updates, alliance bases, and a reworked beginner experience. The idyllic town of Sunstream was destroyed with the human, Athan, and Etherkin races setting up towns near the ruins, in the floating islands, and in the belly of a stone whale.

Jade Dynasty: Regenesis features:
  • New Etherkin race to play and two new factions (classes) you can be: the Psychea and Kytos.
  • Sprawling new starting zone. All three races' starting zones plus the hub city of New Sunstream are in the same map.
  • Alliance bases (Alliances are up to 200+ players).
  • Reworked starting experience. The starting quests have been reworked to be more engaging and to showcase the game's arcane, colorful maps.
  • New instances and updates to old instances.
  • Updated graphics engine, allowing for improved foliage interaction and better lighting on water.
The Psychea Tribe:
  • Childlike appearance.
  • Weapon of choice: An oversized calligraphy brush, which doubles as a tool for summoning traps and Psyteks.
  • Three major playstyles. These can be mixed and matched.
  • Playstyle #1: Zone control. The Psychea can summon traps, be they pools of ethereal power or motion-activated explosives. With a little time to set up, the Pyschea can establish complete dominance over a zone.
  • Playstyle #2: Psyteks. The Psychea can summon and ride mech-like Psyteks, functioning like stances. Summoning and maintaining the Psyteks costs Spirit but unlocks certain skills.
  • Playstyle #3: Summons. The Psychea can bring clockwork minions to the battlefield.
The Kytos Tribe:
  • Brutish centaurs; take their inspiration from the Kirin mythological beast. They are gender-locked to male.
  • Weapon of choice: spear.
  • Rather than casting spells using spirit like other factions, they cast with health. Dealing damage builds fury, which plays into boosting some of their spells.
  • They also have a transformation that lets them serve as mounts for other players.
  • Their playstyle is very mobile, and very durable. They are bruisers who disrupt the enemy, charging straight through the front lines to reach the squishy targets.
  • They have a variety of buffs to help them absorb damage and draw aggro.
  • They're one of the few classes with a reflect self-buff to perfectly reward drawing enemy fire by throwing it back at them.
  • They have some flat speed buffs, but also some charges, including one that locks down the target after arriving.
  • Many of their attacks are AoE, so they're served well by charging in and maximizing the number of targets in range.
  • One of their top-tier powers takes this to the logical extreme: Unlike most spells, it doesn't lock down your mobility, so you keep running through their lines as you spin your spear in a fiery spin attack.

So, the question is...

Would you want that experience on Monkey Dynasty? Or not.
The choice is yours.

Dun dun duuuun.

Well, i wouldnt say no, but ..
I'd say open a new server for it first, something like a beta server where we can check the new content .. (and where rly only the new content will be, that the server wont be too big in size, if possible)
I guess im not the only one who isnt sure about the update and if we gonna like it.. so it would be better in my opinion ..
After the "beta" a new poll should be made, that everyone rly knows if they want it or not

Well a solution to that is to let the admins delay the patch a bit after release on official. or if perry still have openings for beta testers on the test server you can apply.

I would say that I am really looking forward to it coming to Monkey Dynasty.

However,
I would put up a temp server instead of knocking replacing the current ones.

I would say, if monkey dynasty (in the future) would ever have a hope of staying afloat, they will eventually have to keep up with the times and if every other server upgrades up to regenesis, then We eventually would have to as well in order to keep our spot in the Voting.

Also,
knowing how people flock, as soon as the 1st regenesis shows up people will flock to them. If MD went without, then we will fall behind and more than likely our population would dwindle to the bare minimum.

Treat it like a regular patch, just as when fortas voidas soulstones and fatecharms came out, we didnt make a new server for that .

Plenty of reasons,

People go for the 'new' and 'complete'

Example, JD Classic servers of 5 factions, only humans, veteran minority prefers this but the servers are ghost towns and it closes down. Vets only cant keep a server going, it needs its newbies.

People Migrate

A new server opens with new features and same rates and stuff, people obviously get drawn to it. The monkey franchise would be one of the first to get the server up as well, so the newbies would go there, existing MD would see large scale migration to the new server.

Voting

Ofc they may think they'll keep playing both servers, but when it comes to voting, anyone'll get the servers mixed up/ dont bother with existing MD, lose interest/ focus with all the new stuff and building brand new characters.

Split in Votes /Fall in vote rankings/Overall drop in Monkey rankings in vote sites

In the case where 'some people would like game kept the way as it is' proves true, the title explains whats going to happen. As a result, less new players get drawn in. Which is definitely not good for the server.

The economic aspect, the extra work the staff has to put in , the chaos after a brand new server(seriously , you put up with enough of this after a simple patch, imagine hundreds of people start playing the brand new server, which will obviously wont be bug proof and will be vastly untested) etc etc backs up why it should just be a normal patch.

So, just consider it a normal update, the game goes on.
Peace o.o

I voted Yes because implementing the new patch here is a good idea. I understand, it's a lot to work and a lot tests to be done, because it includes a huge amount of new stuff.
             People change their opinion every time , so yea adding the regenesis patch on Monkey Dynasty would be best idea.

I voted for yes because I love new adventures in Jade Dynasty and also learning new things to share them with you guys. New Factions ... That would be really awesome but I'll just stay Voida. =)

i voted for a separate server.

I know for a fact there's literally dozens of people who still didn't get used to the current content and adding more will just make it more confusing,but i am also aware that for others the game has nothing new to offer so those also diverse new content.

Its my opinion that a separate server would suffice the needs of everyone...many times its impossible to please everyone but in this case it can be done.

I voted `yes` but, I do agree that new graphics would require certain people getting better PC's than the usual ones they have at the moment. As Ken said, it should be treated like a normal patch. People with a bit weaker PC's should've known they won't be able to run everything latest on it.

Anyway, I also know at least 10 people that are patiently waiting for this patch to come here, so that they can purchase a full faction change.

Cheers,
