How is everyone doing?
 
A few questions just for the fun of it and get a little activity going in the Trickster Forum again.

1. How difficult was it taking the closure all in?


2. Are you playing a new game? If yes, what is it? Feel free to explain more about your new game(s).


3. With the closure hitting most of the community hard, would you rejoin eTO if it were to re-open?


4. Would you start over, as in lost of everything if eTO were to re-open?


5. Did you felt it wasn't right for eTO to close this early? (This involves knowing that bans, bugs, GameGuard, glitches, and hackers were harming the community.)


If you can't guess already, I been bored lately. I have tried many games, jumping from one to another. Never found anything to replace Trickster yet.

This thread can also be a little discussion thread for the community to catch up with each other.

1. How difficult was it taking the closure all in?
Surprisingly not very hard. I poured a lot of time and money into the game yet it still didn't hit me as hard as I thought. Just dismissed it in a few minutes of reading the news. >:


2. Are you playing a new game? If yes, what is it? Feel free to explain more about your new game(s).
Nope, can't find an MMO I enjoy. Been kind of out of MMOs for a while. Still trying to find a game I like enough that doesn't lag my crappy laptop. xD;


3. With the closure hitting most of the community hard, would you rejoin eTO if it were to re-open?
Yep, of course!


4. Would you start over, as in lost of everything if eTO were to re-open?
I.. I don't know. I spent so much money on the game so if all of my things were to disappear I'd feel really put off.


5. Did you felt it wasn't right for eTO to close this early? (This involves knowing that bans, bugs, GameGuard, glitches, and hackers were harming the community.)
Nah, it was about time it closed. Was surprised it didn't sooner.

Jessica 03-03-2013 08:42 PM

1. How difficult was it taking the closure all in?
Not very at all. I got a tiny bit teary eyed the second I got logged out at the end. But, it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. Maybe if it closed two years ago, it would have bothered me more.

2. Are you playing a new game? If yes, what is it? Feel free to explain more about your new game(s).
Grand Fantasia and my boyfriend started playing Runescape (looool) again so I joined him. And Minecraft for the Xbox.

3. With the closure hitting most of the community hard, would you rejoin eTO if it were to re-open?
I would definitely. I wouldn't play often but I would.

4. Would you start over, as in lost of everything if eTO were to re-open?
I think I would. I wouldn't take it as seriously as I did, I wouldn't spend much, and wouldn't put as much time as I did into it.

5. Did you felt it wasn't right for eTO to close this early? (This involves knowing that bans, bugs, GameGuard, glitches, and hackers were harming the community.)
I was waiting for it to close. I was kind of surprised it was this soon, but was also surprised it lasted as long as it did.

1. How difficult was it taking the closure all in?
I honestly didn't believe it at first lol >: but i was quite sadden by the news.

2. Are you playing a new game? If yes, what is it? Feel free to explain more about your new game(s).
Semi-active on Elsword. Been playing it before the closure of TO.

3. With the closure hitting most of the community hard, would you rejoin eTO if it were to re-open?
Most diff. as long i have my account and everything back.

4. Would you start over, as in lost of everything if eTO were to re-open?
Nope. (Unless my boyfriend decides to still play it)

5. Did you felt it wasn't right for eTO to close this early? (This involves knowing that bans, bugs, GameGuard, glitches, and hackers were harming the community.)
I have mix feelings for it but overall it's all in for business.

james 03-03-2013 10:03 PM

1. How difficult was it taking the closure all in?
A little sad, but I had already more or less moved on anyways.

2. Are you playing a new game? If yes, what is it? Feel free to explain more about your new game(s).
MapleStory, Elsword, I just rotate games really.

3. With the closure hitting most of the community hard, would you rejoin eTO if it were to re-open?
Probably not. Maybe if it were under a different company, but probably not.

4. Would you start over, as in lost of everything if eTO were to re-open?
It'd definitely have to be under a different company, but maybe.

5. Did you felt it wasn't right for eTO to close this early? (This involves knowing that bans, bugs, GameGuard, glitches, and hackers were harming the community.)
Shocked it didn't close eons ago.

1. How difficult was it taking the closure all in?
I didn't believe it at first, then I teared up, and proceeded to ignore it like it wasn't real.


2. Are you playing a new game? If yes, what is it? Feel free to explain more about your new game(s).
I play Thai Trickster on occation, Spirit Tales on and off, but I'm mostly waiting for Edda to start up again.

3. With the closure hitting most of the community hard, would you rejoin eTO if it were to re-open?
In a heartbeat. I spent so much money, I would LOVE to get my stuff back. I also really worked hard on my character too..


4. Would you start over, as in lost of everything if eTO were to re-open?
I would. I loved my stuff, but I supposed they'd get released again, I wouldn't spend so much money this time around though.

5. Did you felt it wasn't right for eTO to close this early? (This involves knowing that bans, bugs, GameGuard, glitches, and hackers were harming the community.)
I have mixed feelings. I knew it would eventually, it was a little unexpected, but when they went so long without the maintenance, I kinda figured .

Questionnaires are always fun. c:

1. How difficult was it taking the closure all in?
not very

2. Are you playing a new game? If yes, what is it? Feel free to explain more about your new game(s).
Yeah, I'm playing PSO2, osu!, CS:GO/1.6 and Fantasica lol.

3. With the closure hitting most of the community hard, would you rejoin eTO if it were to re-open?
Uhh, maybe. Someone has to convince me to play again if that were to happen.

4. Would you start over, as in lost of everything if eTO were to re-open?
Sure, why not lol :P

5. Did you felt it wasn't right for eTO to close this early? (This involves knowing that bans, bugs, GameGuard, glitches, and hackers were harming the community.)
It was already a dead game to me sadly lol.

Zero 03-03-2013 11:17 PM

1. How difficult was it taking the closure all in?
At first I was shocked. Hit me right in the childhood. The kid in me didn't want to think about it for the remainder it had.

2. Are you playing a new game? If yes, what is it? Feel free to explain more about your new game(s).
I only play LoL at the moment. Probably won't invest in another MMO.

3. With the closure hitting most of the community hard, would you rejoin eTO if it were to re-open?
Depends. New company, gave compensation to old players & etc, sure. If not, then no thanks.

4. Would you start over, as in lost of everything if eTO were to re-open?

I don't think so. Too much time and money from me to do it once more.

5. Did you felt it wasn't right for eTO to close this early? (This involves knowing that bans, bugs, GameGuard, glitches, and hackers were harming the community.)
]Yes and no. I noticed the dramatic drop in the community, but I figured thats because loads of people are in college for the duration of fall/winter/spring or gameguard. The community always increased during the summer time.

A few questions just for the fun of it and get a little activity going in the Trickster Forum again.

1. How difficult was it taking the closure all in?
MY closre occured years ago
my hardship will come with the TO official and ggftw forums closing

2. Are you playing a new game? If yes, what is it? Feel free to explain more about your new game(s).
no :/

3. With the closure hitting most of the community hard, would you rejoin eTO if it were to re-open?
yes

4. Would you start over, as in lost of everything if eTO were to re-open?


5. Did you felt it wasn't right for eTO to close this early? (This involves knowing that bans, bugs, GameGuard, glitches, and hackers were harming the community.)
tbh it was looming for two years

Swadloon 03-04-2013 12:18 AM

1. How difficult was it taking the closure all in?

It was rather sad and frustrating, I was hoping they would get their shit together before something like this happened.. They didn't.

2. Are you playing a new game? If yes, what is it? Feel free to explain more about your new game(s).

No MMOs, just console games.

3. With the closure hitting most of the community hard, would you rejoin eTO if it were to re-open?


If GameGuard is gone and we kept our stuff, I would immediately.

4. Would you start over, as in lost of everything if eTO were to re-open?

No, I'd miss my old chars and items too much.


5. Did you felt it wasn't right for eTO to close this early? (This involves knowing that bans, bugs, GameGuard, glitches, and hackers were harming the community.)

I expected it to happen but not this soon, I thought it would take a few more months. That said, I feel like it wasn't right because if they had just removed GameGuard and held out until Paula and the extra character slots were released they might've had a chance and attracted players back and should have decided to shut down only if those things weren't working rather than just jumping the gun and pulling the plug on everything so soon.

1. How difficult was it taking the closure all in?
Even though I made some occasional visits on my alt.Lion or Sheep, I am somewhat hurt that I lost my progress in the game with my main account.

2. Are you playing a new game? If yes, what is it? Feel free to explain more about your new game(s).
Yes, and that is Team Fortress 2 where basically a cartoonish FPS with some humor dialogues as well a pretty good community player base but sadly since the game went to Free-to-Play, the number of hackers has risen each week and plus I'm trying my best to be in a competitive scene.



3. With the closure hitting most of the community hard, would you rejoin eTO if it were to re-open?
Yea I would come back in a heartbeat.

4. Would you start over, as in lost of everything if eTO were to re-open?
Sure why not.

5. Did you felt it wasn't right for eTO to close this early? (This involves knowing that bans, bugs, GameGuard, glitches, and hackers were harming the community.)
Yes cause without the problem eTO was facing I guess would have hanged on a little longer like MS or another other Long Tern MMORPG that stands out.

1. How difficult was it taking the closure all in?

I was playing again over the summer and it was pretty fun even though the community is so small compared to a few years ago. It is pretty sad that Trickster is closing considering how much I used to love it as a kid. But I have pretty much moved on from it now (I don't really enjoy it as much as I used to) and I'm glad to have some closure.

2. Are you playing a new game? If yes, what is it? Feel free to explain more about your new game(s).

No time for video games anymore and I just can't get into them. I do think Blade and Soul looks pretty good though.

3. With the closure hitting most of the community hard, would you rejoin eTO if it were to re-open?

I probably would but I doubt I would enjoy it.

4. Would you start over, as in lost of everything if eTO were to re-open?

I would prefer a restart over a continuation of where it left off. But I do feel like I'm at the age (20) where I don't have time for video games.

5. Did you felt it wasn't right for eTO to close this early? (This involves knowing that bans, bugs, GameGuard, glitches, and hackers were harming the community.)

GameGuard did bring me a lot of trouble. I wasn't really affected by hackers though as I only played over the summer.

:)

Hope you guys all enjoy life after Trickster.

1. How difficult was it taking the closure all in?
I will have to admit: It was. Right now, when I was about to get my internet connection back inside my house, I was kinda preparing stuff to make a comeback. And, of course, the most important factor - the memories. It is like looking a friend being burried, after it's death. We could had made a lot of rants around the foruns, on the game, whatever the issue was about, all we wanted is to see the game get better. We cared about it.



2. Are you playing a new game? If yes, what is it? Feel free to explain more about your new game(s).

Now I am just with minecraft, and perhaps i'll make a comeback on League of Legends.
Probably I'll never play MMO's anymore. The only exception would be TERA, since my close friends from TO are playing it. I don't want to lose contact with them. Either the ones who aren't playing it...



3. With the closure hitting most of the community hard, would you rejoin eTO if it were to re-open?
Yes.



4. Would you start over, as in lost of everything if eTO were to re-open?
I already sugested that, a reboot on 2011. I understand that many people would feel bad about it, because of the money spent, but I would.



5. Did you felt it wasn't right for eTO to close this early? (This involves knowing that bans, bugs, GameGuard, glitches, and hackers were harming the community.)
It had to happen some day. It's really sad... But.....

ChiiPoof 03-04-2013 05:37 PM

1. How difficult was it taking the closure all in?
it was not as difficult as time passed through.......but after the closure...kinda of bored without it

2. Are you playing a new game? If yes, what is it? Feel free to explain more about your new game(s).
tried blackout ragnarok online but my friends quit so i quit too


3. With the closure hitting most of the community hard, would you rejoin eTO if it were to re-open?
totally would


4. Would you start over, as in lost of everything if eTO were to re-open?

yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes...wanna it to be fresh...just need to recharge more money
5. Did you felt it wasn't right for eTO to close this early? (This involves knowing that bans, bugs, GameGuard, glitches, and hackers were harming the community.)

Now I'm not the one in charge of these decisions, but I very highly doubt that it will get closed or deleted. So to anyone who is worrying about it, please don't.

Q_Q

2. Are you playing a new game? If yes, what is it? Feel free to explain more about your new game(s).


If I were playing a new game, it wouldn't be an MMO.

3. With the closure hitting most of the community hard, would you rejoin eTO if it were to re-open?

Yes times inifinity!

4. Would you start over, as in lost of everything if eTO were to re-open?


.... as long as they can give me just a Rose-of-Sharon hat... I'll manage.

5. Did you felt it wasn't right for eTO to close this early? (This involves knowing that bans, bugs, GameGuard, glitches, and hackers were harming the community.)

Of course it's not right! Seriously the first MMO I ever played was Nexus: The Kingdom of the Winds and it's STILL up and running. It's been opened in NA since 1998 (Korea since 1996). It's not the most graphically impressive game ever either. I feel that Trickster has an excellent chance of returning with the force of a thousand typhoons if it was picked up by a dedicated publisher and handled right!

Marceline 03-05-2013 08:46 PM

1. How difficult was it taking the closure all in?
I had heard about it from my boyfriend, and at first I swore he was messing with me, until I checked the site. I wasn't shocked at all. Only sad. I didn't cry, but I was very sad. I experienced so many things and met so many amazing people, I couldn't believe that place was finally gonna be gone.

2. Are you playing a new game? If yes, what is it? Feel free to explain more about your new game(s).
I had already semi-quit Trickster to play another game a few months before it closed, but I still miss it all the same.

3. With the closure hitting most of the community hard, would you rejoin eTO if it were to re-open?
Of course.

4. Would you start over, as in lost of everything if eTO were to re-open?
.. As much as I love Trickster, heck no.
Spent way too much money and time.


5. Did you felt it wasn't right for eTO to close this early? (This involves knowing that bans, bugs, GameGuard, glitches, and hackers were harming the community.)
Wasn't 'early' at all in my opinion. It lasted a lot longer than I would've guessed.
