Tbf though I don’t care about trammel being osi, literally wont affect me.
Trammel I think the question could be “what do they want?” And I think for fel the question should be “what is good for balancing pvp?” (Not to say what people want shouldn’t matter just that balance should be #1 priority).
Honestly idk if it’s a 50/50 divide, Bc before casting change not many were playing, no one on kvg was playing for sure, hz I don’t think was playing except like maybe will/pumpkin, I think a few Loop did maybe, the Chinese I’ve heard mostly like it Bc it helps bridge the gap bc of ping, I imagine msby doesn’t like it.
From my observation of pvmers, they usually don't like a challenge if they are playing a mage or tamer mage with a focus of spell damage. If they want a challenge they usually play a warrior of some sort. Then most of the time it's just with strong mobs such as peerless, key wardens, or ml named mobs. Other than that people just prefer pressing play. The pvm side of the game is very casual for the most part. Most people don't grind in the typical sense. Those that are attended usually are pressing hotkeys. Those that aren't...
I'm not sure exactly were the divide is for accurate casting. There are a lot of people quitting tho. Most them are nobodies sure, but Demise isn't just a place for people who post on forums. How much that has to do with casting and how much of that is just gen quitting due to boredom and spring idk. I do know some people that are quitting because of the toxic environment. I realize that I may be part of that and I apologize for my role in the toxicity. I will try to limit my replies to helpful stuff and start reporting off topic posts and threads. Believe it or not I actually report myself sometimes.
From the pvp side of things there seems to be a lot more activity, but I have already seen one instance of if they change blah I'm going to quit, so if I were staff I would probably just OSI accurate everything to the best of my knowledge. Then say well this is OSI accurate and be done with it. I'm kinda crazy tho, b/c I'd reimplement era accurate explo pots. I'd revert wind change. I'd put all the broken stuff in and call it accurate, have fun, have a nice day, and go eat a sammich. That's probably why I'm not staff tho.
Most people that play UO do so for nostalgia. Most people that play Demise want to chill not grind their faces off.
