Time is here!!!!!

By Blackswann, 01:28, 15 Aug 2017

So here is the dish on what is gonna happen this coming Saturday, August 19th, 2017... Neverendless will no longer be a custom gear realm. You will keep banks, guild banks, reps, all historic values, and achievements. But you will no longer have custom gear. Viarax will be shutting the server off at some point on Friday evening London time. We purged about 10gb of our 30gb database this past weekend of dead data. When the server goes down this time it will be to update the core to our new GEN2 version of 3.3.5 Wrath of the Lich King.
We will be keeping the old customs realm as a fun realm for a little bit but it will be going away very soon. Once we are done with all the backend work we will go live on Sunday afternoon or evening London time and we will be fully converted. We are going to be posting the policy of how we will be doing the gear replacement. Now, think about it. We are only able to replace with in-game gear. If you already have that gear we can't add it again. Professions will not be changed so that is not going to be a factor. I plan on just adding gear, equal to what you had so if you had a full custom set we will give you a full PVP or PvE set. We may also (doing the math on this one atm) add a specific amount of chips to account for donors.
There are so many variables it is going to take me a bit to figure this part out. It will not be a full refund of all chip. Look at it as I do, you all donated and we used the donations to pay developers, servers, storage, and expenses. That money was spent, you got to use the items for a very long time so I feel they have been a pretty fair trade off for all concerned. I am willing to consider replacing some chips and how we will do it is still under discussion. Please don't make silly assed suggestions and jokes or insults for that matter.
As this is currently a team of about 6 people we are short handed and what ever I decide to do will be out of the kindness of my heart not required regardless of what everyone thinks I am a fair and honorable person. Some of this stuff will take time. I will tell you that insults and jabs in the game and in the forums or Facebook will simply get deleted. If you have a gripe come to me directly. I am easy to contact and although I am back in college full time getting my masters degree and PhD. in computer science I am going to be online for hours in game daily US time.
Some of you already want to take shots at me and that's fine. I won't tolerate insults and attacks as in the past I didn't. Remember, the rules are mine, my staffs and you have to follow them. I can be very accommodating if treated fairly by players. I can also be a flaming asshat if treated poorly. I won't make excuses for that as I want everyone to have fun and if I think you are ruining that then I will act accordingly. Let us all come together and make NE a fun place to enjoy WOW again.

I don't mind the customs going if I get end game. I know quite a few people who feel the same. Playing on poor high latency servers is bothersome.

I get SM right? XD

Should we clear out bags out if we have NE bags or is there going to be some equivalent given?

Yes, the plan atm is to let you give us a list of items you want and for the GM to add them... Which as I warned will be a fairly slow process...

Looking forward to seeing what's what.

I feel chips would be the best bet as far as compensation. I can understand why you don't want to go that route however.

I think a more important issue as well though would be rebuilding the community, perhaps another town meeting to discuss the state of things and have players ask questions. Provoke and start a conversation between veterans of both staff and players on Neverendless.

I know for a fact there are people looking for a stable, well scripted pve/pvp private server SPECIFICALLY for WoTLK.
In tradition to NE I think we should push marketing and advertising as hard as possible and show us being a top tier pvp realm focus on pvp events and competitions. Arena ladders and live streams etc.

Current servers are flooded with Vanilla and BC realms, so many wrath realms just don't exist. I have noticed in the last few months from the various private server communities I frequent, that people do want a good wrath server. No customs, even a cash shop is iffy as players usually don't take kindly to people buying full bis gear while progression is taking place, but that's more for a fresh server which opens raids over time (which isn't a bad idea btw, most people love the feeling of progression).

I understand the server needs money to survive like any other.
I will be as active as I can here, and once this new core launches I will do my best to help rebuild the experience we used to have as a server and community. I only hope that the others here will do the same.

Thank you for the support... IDK what will happen with the change but we are going to go balls to the walls and try to do our best...

i think the greatest thing that can be done is removing the customs, as they were fun for us for many years, but they outgrew their purpose.

Like Taco said, a progression release realm is a very nice way to relaunch for old and new community members to all be on the same page.

It allows for achievement hunting to be done, as well as older members who will already be geared to help out new community members. It also allows the developers to work on content and test it, while "older" content is being cleared.

I played on a realm, that had "buffed content" to make the pve more challenging which is very enjoyable if done right, and might be something to think about.

One of the most boring things on private servers (in my opinion) is being on farm status on end game content (ICC 25hc and RS25hc), so slowing down, give the pve community a slight challenge on progression released content could bring the community together from the start.

PS: if all that i said was just a moot points, well then at least thank you for reading.
