    Well I might sign it if he keeps his promises this time and doesn't use the game to make another ego trip to space.

    I really liked TR, not so much as a MMORPG but more as a online sci fi action game.

    But......

    "I'm sure NCsoft will at least listen to our plea"  http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/ressurection-of-richards-garriott-tabula-rasa.html

    Not sure if NCsoft has forgetten $ 28M USD image http://massively.joystiq.com/2010/07/30/richard-garriott-wins-lawsuit-against-ncsoft/

  • TilenFirmanTilenFirman LendavaMember Posts: 2

    It was their dirty tricks that lead to such sad ending of the game.

     

    Perhapsh they didnt forget 28 mil $ - thats for sure.

     

    But what would it cost them if , they put it back F2P and see the effect ?

     

    It it brings income and there is no outcome ( only servers maintaing for starters ) thats pure profit.

     

    Any idiot would see math in this. But the problem by NC is their pride , arrogance and foolishness.

  • ClawhammerClawhammer ArosMember Posts: 16

    Tilen Firman i really dont care how much pride , arrogance and foolishness ncsoft do have, all i care about is getting Tabula Rasa back online.

    To me i think ncsoft have felt the wraith for the vest in relation to how many former TR players did not want to pay and sub for the latter of their games after Tabula Rasa was closed down.

     

    An MMORPG like Tabula Rasa is a commitment for several years, see how many years gw1 did have committed servers ! 

     

    For me its like potato,potata. either its sub. like before for me if the sub is the same as of wow, i dont care.

    If its F2P like planetside2 with you buying stuff to your chars like white armour and the like does not hold me back from paying sub.

    Nice try Richard.

    Definitely didn't seem like Richard started the petition to me either, having read it,  it seemed like it was started by someone with english as a second language.

  • ClawhammerClawhammer ArosMember Posts: 16

    HOAH this is simply going superb when i posted this i did not expect that we would be around 400 signed petitions right now.

     

    To all those who signed it, and to those forthcomming. THANKS. i really hope this will get to the point where the petition really shows ncsoft that WE WANT THIS BACK. 

     

    so please ask any you know that cares for this great game, ask them to sign this petition. 

    I for one have put forth the plea to all i know.

    I wonder how many people would be willing to pay for it again, not just play for free for a month for a laugh and then quit all over again.

    i dont think this is the case, most players are true to this game, how many other mmo´s did have such a great gfx.

    the story in the game is quite evolved compared to many other and it was ahead of its time, in many respects.

    He didn't nor was that claimed. He just posted a link to it / shout out for it on his twitter feed. He has not said anything else afaik on it and doubt he really will. His lawsuit most like stipulated as such. He just drew attention to the petition which he would not have done if he didn't at least somewhat feel it deserved it. And yes, Tilen most like does not natively speak english, but he speaks it better than I can speak any other language other than english including latin which is what I know best after english, heheh. I guess you sorta kinda get used to it with so many people the world over playing MMOs now (especially f2p ones).

    This game needs to stay where it is, dead and buried IMO.

    This is a game that's worth immersing yourself in. There may be a few bugs now, but they'll inevitably be fixed in a patch soon, and there's more than enough here to keep you coming back for more Thrax-spanking action.

    If I made money off a game I made / was involved in and wanted to go to space and that meant I stopped making that game I'd go to space even though it would hurt the game because space is space and that's pretty cool. Still, as a customer that would suck though and we all know what the story was. But still, the game had something to it although it felt like an indie game unfinished, unpolished etc it was a pretty good game. Wish I actually played it.

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    My fond memories of TR:

    That first zone, as you run down the hill near this wartorn "river". on one side you see your defenders, other side bane forces, each side shooting and killing each other, I mean ACTUALLY killing each other, not just that exchange of fire that you see in many games where you can watch for 5 min and never see a health bar go down.

    Getting orders to report to "x outpost" and finding that the bane had already taken it. You call over the comm links for help on retaking that base. You know, your only supply depot in the whole area, You and a handful answer the call and lay siege to the base. You clear it and signal the all clear. New support personnel start to ship to the outpost to make it functional again, getting the door shields up and such. However shortly before the base is fully up and running you hear bane turbines in the wind. That's right wave 2, 3, or even 4 of the bane forces are on their way trying to take that base away from you.

    (Yes, bane forces were "active" in taking your "quest hubs" and supply depots away from the players)

    Getting to a level, and spending a clone chit, this allowed you to clone your character at that point, while effectively giving you two characters of two different classes without having to level things all over again. Now all you had to do is get gear for you newborn clone.

     

    TR was the only game that I enjoyed grinding, mostly because it did not feel like grinding, it felt more akin to a "War zone". In many invasions I remember running madly from cover to cover (yes, cover mattered in this game) shooting madly as bane forces pushed from position to position, only the have a small group of players rushing in from behind to save my arse at the last second.

    I know that NcSoft will never let the IP out of their hands for a reboot. NcSoft's actions in games like this and CoX are the reason why I do not spend a cent on ANYTHING NcSoft related if I can help it. I'd play and Sub in a heartbeat, I generally do not have time to justify a sub (in my mind) but this is one that I would just pay the dang cost. Yes even with all the bugs the game had.

    Folks - this is not gonna happen because it can't.

    1. NCSoft doesn't have any of the staff left that launched and supported TR, once the game closed NCSoft Austin dissolved, the team that ran TR is gone. So nobody at NCSoft presently would know how to even stand up TR server.

    2. NCSoft doesnt have the server or database code for TR anymore, there is an ex employee that has the code still (withholding name for obvious reason)

    As much as I'd like to play TR again, I can tell you with great certainty is this is not gonna happen. 

    I am surprised that Garriot would endorse this as he is well aware of both of the points I mentioned above.

    So unless there are things in the works to hire some ex staff ( and they are willing to work for NCSoft again).... I say again, chances are pretty much non existent.

    You know what, People sit there a bemoan SWG all the time, jumping into other game threads and try to shove their views on how great SWG was. Most of us know that it is dead and never coming back. However it does not stop tons of people shoving how "great" a game it was into other faces.

    I know it is not coming back. It does not however diminish our desire for it to come back. No matter how many time you say the above, no matter how many threads you post this in.

    Let us sit in our rocking chair and reminisce about the good old days. Who know, one day, possibly, even though the chances are slim to none, the game, or a game just like it, may once again grace our paths

    Anything is possible, I will be there first to admit that seemingly impossible things can happen, and my intention was not to crush anybody's dream. 

    I have nothing but amazing memories of TR and I too would love to see it come back.

    I apologize for my earlier posts being so grim, my intention was not to take this fond feeling of a possibility of playing TR again, as I am in the same boat.

    Love TR forever, the team behind the game are some of the nicest folks I've met.
