Tabula Rasa: Petition to Revive Endorsed by Garriott

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,610MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

A fan petition to bring back Richard Garriott's Tabula Rasa as a free to play title has been endorsed by the man himself. The note from the petitioners says it all. 

I am asking for full support in our endless effort to bring back Tabula Rasa. Such game as that DESERVES TO BE FREE TO PLAY as every other piece of junk there has a chance to be playable and it's not worth downloading it sometimes. Please , I beg of You - alone I can do nothing.  Support me and our cause of our team to bring back this long dead but still the best game ever existed.

Here is proof of Richard Garriot's support towards my petition. Here is the petition link it self .  Thank you in advance! Only together we can succeed. Alone this petition is destined to be forgotten and last spark of hope all this years of trying and convincing and asking for help from Richard will be in vain. 

Head to the links above to sign the petition.

    I really doubt this petition will go anywhere, but I'd enjoy the chance to play TR again.

    I loved this game. I have dogtags, a figurine and a goodbye card signed by all the devs. It would be nice to go back to Foreas.

    However, after playing Firefall for the past 9 months I can't go back to dice roll combat. Not in an F/TPS game.  Still..we had some sweet times. Mostly because we pretty involved devs. As F2P I fear what I loved would be lost in the effort to make it a viable business. Who knows. 

    I need a tissue.

    There is NO miracle patch.

    95% of what you see in beta won't change by launch.

    Hope is not a stategy.

    This game died fair and square.  It shouldn't come back unless it's getting a complete revamp, IMO.

    A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

    Doesn't matter, this game was awesome. There are far to many games out there that are nowhere near as good as Tabula Rasa is/was. The game itself was full of remarkable scenery, mechanics, game play, sieges, customization, tech, it was great. There are very few scifi games that come close to this.

    It was great, but died?  Apparently not enough people agree with your opinion for it to remain viable. I played it for a short time, and thought it was clunky garbage.

    Totally signed this, +1 for Garriot and I hope this game is reactivated. It's a shame that NCsoft has their greedy little paws wrapped all around this game and refuse access for anyone who wants to revitalize the product.

    Why not, it was actually a good game.

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

    I guess he's looking for another trip into space and needs more suckers to give him money to pay for it again.

    Sure, bring back a reloaded/refreshed TR, just do it WITHOUT RG. I'm not investing in another 'Pet' project of his just to watch his attention wander and get pulled elsewhere.

    I'd try it.  It's a vastly different mmo market these days and I think a F2P Tabula would do alright.; One of the big problems I had with it was performance related, which my computer now would take care of.

     

    I would say this game was never fully given a fair chance, would love to see it again, doubt it will happen though.

    This.  I started in early CB and it never improved.  It deserved to die.  There are much better pseudo-action MMOs already on the market.

    Good god , out of NCSoft games , City of Heroes deserves to be revived far , far more than this game.

    If they shut down a profitable game like City of Heroes , why in the hell would they ever consider TR ?

    (just aggravates me as would love to play CoH with my kids who would enjoy it , but nothing out there like it atm and NCSoft shutting down something like it still bothers me)

  • A1learjetA1learjet Griffith, INPosts: 121Member
    Agree was decent game would love to see it come back

    TR was unique fresh and under-appreciated product that NCSOFT intentionally screwed over. 

    I doubt it will go anywhere, but it would be nice to have it back.

    TR was great, I signed and hope for thousands others to do the same
  • TokkenTokken Portland, ORPosts: 1,154Member Uncommon

    TR is outdated and should remain DEAD. Garriot supports the revival cuz he likes the money he gets from it.

    Brad McQuaid Quote:  So, God-willing, the Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen team and I will be able to make or allow that magic to happen a third time, and it too will be not just a great game, but also that catalyst again that brings people together, sometimes out of their comfort zone, learning how to work together not just tactically in a virtual world but also socially in the real world.

    Brilliant game idea's and fun in this title that died before it time.

    I wouldn't mind this game back as a F2P as well as CoH and Auto Assault.

    TR = Defiance

    Reminiscing usually comes standard with rose-tinted glasses.

    ESO, FE, FFXI, FFXIV, FF, GW1, GW2, Istaria, L2, LoTRO, MO, MxO, NW, Rift, RoE,
    Ryzom, SB, SWG, SWTOR, TERA, TSW, WAR, WoW, WURM...

    RG would get nothing (pretty sure) if it came back f2p fyi. That aspect is long settled. It would be NCS only getting $.

    Firefall, Defiance (not even close to replacing TR and I play both), some others may stand on their own but cannot touch some aspects of TR. It never had a chance to iron out the kinks from being rushed out the door, Some were getting there right when they decided to shutter it which had nothing to do per se with the game and was mostly politics.

    For those who want Other NCS games back, that is fine, but TR stands on its own and blows a lot of games away coming out even now. Graphics are even still decent compared to a lot of games. There has not been one game to incorporate all it did (yet). It was like many games and kind of a love or hate thing so I am not surprised to see some preferring it not. However, how would it affect you if it did? It coming back would make a lot of folks happy, and believe me, those who do love TR tend to love it a lot.

    Richard Garriot isn't the end all of bad gaming. BUT! He did have some great design!

    This industry is broken because of money! gg, it will never be fixed!

  • rojoArcueidrojoArcueid hell, NJPosts: 6,778Member Uncommon
    maybe i didnt understand the message but the guy wants the game Free to Play but its associating it with the all the "piece of junk" out there that isnt worth downloading....and RG endorse it anyway.

    too bad the petition couldn't be written by someone who knows english better...

    that said i wish them luck.

  • OzmodanOzmodan Hilliard, OHPosts: 7,187Member Uncommon

    Tabula Rasa is still better than most of the f2p games out there.  Can't believe they could not make money off it.  

    Better game than Defiance any day in the week.
