    Game Design

Denizens of Crusade Gaming, it is time that we talked about our server.

 

When I first applied for Game Design, my hopes were to cultivate the revival of the most important aspect that remained untainted throughout the course of our history, the community. Though we were not exempt from the malicious nature that is brought out in even the most respectable of individuals, it is for a reason that we remain resilient and persevere onward. The aspirations of the individual, or of the server as a whole, have always been thwarted by procrastination, a sense of being powerless to change and the fear that the echos of ignorance and poor decisions have ultimately sealed our fate. Our history eludes most of us and yet we're still paying for the decisions of old. Despite our previous convictions, the underlying desire of anyone who has found themselves involved with this server is for success.

 

The situation of Halion is dire. Not only does it pain us to see it in such a way but the heart felt anguish of knowing that we are failing those who remain dedicated to our cause and continue to log in each and everyday despite how things have progressed, is what effects us the most. To aspire for success by riding off the coattails of our community was never going to end well and while you are our most precious commodity in the private server market, it is simply not enough to provide an experience worthy of your time and effort, let alone ourselves. It is not acceptable that we continue to perpetuate the promise that things will get better without taking action. Instead of trying to make sense of our shortcomings and the multitude of reasons as to why things did not go our way, we're set on moving forward.

 

It is time that we shed our skin of our old associations and progress forward towards a new common goal. It comes with no regret that our combined decision is to enter a stage of private development will be effective as of when this topic is posted. This will mean that access to our servers will no longer be available by the usual means. Our IRC, TS3 server and the forums will remain operational and their use is encouraged for whatever purpose they might serve. 

 

Our goal of this development period is to produce content that will revitalize World of Warcraft for those that still hold 3.3.5 dear. This goal along side the continued development of WOTLK in respects to maintaining a server is simply not feasible and would detract too much time and energy away from a more worthy cause. It is imperative that we refrain from making promises or holding ourselves to unrealistic expectations or deadlines as what we plan to do will require time and sustained effort that cannot be thrown at a date and hope that it works.

 

We want to thank everyone who stayed with us on this part of our journey and showed their support. We are aware of those who truly made an effort and we wish to thank you adequately when the time comes. On behalf of the staff, I'd like to express our sincerest apologies that things resulted in the way they did.

 

tl;dr and information I skipped:

If you are interested in joining staff, we're always looking for motivated, creative and helpful individuals to strengthen our roster. Please get in contact with a Team Lead at your earliest convenience!

Well, crap. I had just found this server and was enjoying the levelling experience it offered.

 

That said, it sounds like some exciting stuff coming up and will be quite interesting to see what develops...

 

Best of luck, hope to see the results soon!  :)

I think the only way you could of survived is if you offered character transfers, especially since around the time you opened the server, molten's database got wiped. I know of a certain server (that allowed character transfers!!) whose population went from 200 to 1100 players PEAK after the Molten incident. You guys just didn't play your cards right :/

Maybe going up an expansion or 2 to say Cata or Mists would be a better move.

 

Players want as close to retail as possible, hence why Molten and Pandashan for example are so popular.

We have discussed it. And if there would be an emulator anywhere near stable or complete it could be a serious option. But as it stands we simply do not have the manpower to make it work.

Understandable.

 

I guess the only option then is to stay 335 until TC is stable with 6.0?

Bye cocks, you will be missed.

@Choco, remember? "Not a new beginning, but a new end."

The only thing that CG lacks is advertisement.

I've played multiple servers since CG was first shut down and honestly I haven't seen a server that has most of everything working as intended. The Development and Staff team are to be given full credit for the true effort in seeing how well CG works compared to most others.

Finding a solution to advertise the server is what is truly needed. If that means opening up entire guild transfers and what not, it should be done IMHO.

Well that was my 2 cents and its probably something that you guys already know, so fare thee well and I'll see all of you soon.

<3,
Shring
