  2. A prototype of PSO for Sega Dreamcast has been discovered, dated almost one month before the final release on Japan (November 21, 2000), and it seems to have a ton of differences compared to the final version. The date of the prototype is from November 1st. Might be worth checking out the wiki that has been just published!! Personally I can't wait to watch the stream fully and document all of the differences before reading the wiki 🍿😁 Source: https://hiddenpalace.org/News/Phantasy_Star_Online_prototype BTW the download of the image file is also available on the Wiki, if you want to try for yourself on an emulator or if you have a Dreamcast with GDEMU.

      :o Since when Tails became Sanic? so that means SONIC+TAILS=SATONIC?

  9. It is indeed one of the best quests ever made for PSO (that and Realms of War, which I believe that served as an inspiration for Cal's Clock Challenge). I think it is a pity that ROW doesn't have a similar reward system implemented on it.

    u rdy to be defeated again??!? I just launched to the stars this weirdo vegan alligator that eats brocolliii


    1. jezbuz


      Bro, u mad bro? I chew electric wires to assert dominance over broccoli creatures and to seduce ladies and bring them to the top of the of the tall3et building there is. And you launch alligators that are so weak from only eating broccoli to the stars?! Pffffff


  12. I think boosted Experience, Rares, Happy Hours and the ability to exchange money for maxed gear made Ultima players too spoiled over years, including myself. That's why I don't play since a while, just visit forums to check what's going on. Now there isn't much reason for veterans players to stick on after they made everything they wish in game. And reversing all of such boosts would make people complain even more, it is difficult to do anything at this point. Countless suggestions from the playerbase, including me, has been already suggested to perhaps try to mitigate this issue. This thread has thousands of suggestions, good and bad ones, that are way too difficult to implement, or depends on major's staff decisions. The truth is, you all just don't want to accept we already had enough of PSO:BB, even if it was another server, the core will be the same game. I don't think any other MMO has been supported by fans that many years. It is actually surprising people play Blue Burst in 2021, an update that is 17 years old from a game that is almost 21 years old. So idk, if any you are trying to find something brand-new, then in my opinion PSO:BB isn't for you. Play this game for nostalgia and accepting there won't be much else to do besides hunting the same items and gearing your character towards level 200. If only Lipelis was a GM, nothing of that would happen ...
  13. Folks trying to be cool at the shoutbox be like

      Was that a GTA reference? :onion-head65:

  14. I know I know. But I took all of these quotes in a ironic way (please read the context), since I see a lot of people trying to justify the exodus from our playerbase with some of the reasons above. As you, I also don't believe only one person, a team or custom items would cause people leaving Ultima.
  15. Ok, you asked me to quote you so "I can't change peoples words", here it is:
  16. It might not be against rules, but it is kind of common sense that one of the parts should at least try to be respectful. Otherwise this topic will become just another drama novel going to limbo just as many other countless topics. Except that you know he have some clear mental issues, high level of autism and uses heavy drugs; remember him saying that multiple times. So I don't agree that the words from someone with autism, Alzheimer or some other kind of mental issues have the same weight as words from someone 100% sane. Telling someone in such conditions to go commit a suicide is totally unnaceptable in my opinion. Here, most of these quests specified in this topic (if not all) have been brought up to Ultima thanks to lots of conversations/negotiations with other content creators: Me, him and R-78 have been extensively at that time testing such quests and reporting bugs to Soly. Only after countless hours of testing they finally left the Test Server. Many other quests, that were otherwise only available in Japanese language, is now live on Ultima because he did know who to talk to in order to get them available here. Ultima Discord, as I said previously, was heavily revamped like two years ago and we pretty much used most of his Discord layout/organization as a base. So yeah, because most of his contribution to the server is on backend of things, doesn't mean he didn't do anything in all these years as a staff member. Since I was at the backstage for quite some time, I'm sure I know more than you about the good stuff he did. And such things as: - Ultima have less players because of the unbalanced custom items - People is leaving the server because of Triforce - Ephinea is more crowded because they embraced the vanilla aspect of the game and their staff is more democratic All of that I quoted above and much more are just logical fallacies, which doesn't always correspond to the truth; there's not a single study proving people like vanilla better, how impactful to the community is the stuff being said on shoutbox, and vice-versa. If this is just what you believe, that he is "harmful" to the community, it's okay. He probably thinks the opposite of your team. (BTW I must reiterate I don't have anything personal against anyone from Triforce and I know lots of kind people from there that I used to play with a lot in the past.) And there's nothing stop you and others from moving on and playing on a "more democratic" server, with more active staff members, balanced items, etc. But unfortunately we are stubborn and still choose to talk/play here. Even though there are technically "better" places to play PSO right now, I like the fact we still have Ultima. That's it. Well, you once suggested a really interesting stuff about lead admins right, so other GMS would have more power to give final decisions regarding the Ultima right? Larva totally ignored you, if I remember correct. And of course, who wouldn't get mad on this situation? I don't even rememebr how many times I suggested stuff (even directly at staff's channel) that were of crowd's interest and never got the proper attention. What I'm trying to say is that this is all pointless. is it ALWAYS the same problem, staff members have great ideas, which doesn't get the approval of Larva. What is the point of complaining about the same thing for years? Hence I say if you don't like Ultima how it currently is, I wouldn't put hopes in it changing. I already learned that.
  17. I guess I'll be the one with an unpopular opinion but at this point in time, I don't really care, I don't really like what the Ultima environment has become in the last year or so, and that makes me glad I quit being an active player for good. I know I'll be bashed by my thoughts but the recent posts, dramas and shit that happened on shoutbox stinks like some childish drama, and most of you should be ashamed for wasting so much time offending a staff member in shoutbox (regardless if he was being a nice person or not). That's not how people request things to change for better, at least not in real life.... Now the very author of this topic 11:59 PM: "Ok guys let's talk to Larva about a serious problem we have on this server, we don't agree with Wilson's attitude because of this reason, and this another reason and finally this last reason.. I think we should improve on that, and that either and finally this." 00:00 AM at the very same topic: "Hurr durr whales, memes, Wilson is a dick, asshole, Larva read this plox I beg you" How do you expect this kind of topic will go anywhere, if you can't be serious and say stuff without offending someone? People need to be cohesive when trying to express themselves. It would be just easier if you guys just ignored Wilson, didn't give him attention on serious matters, because in the very end, it is all up to Larva to decide things. If we go back to Emewn, for example, the offenses against him were really uncalled for and aggressive. Like I already saw someone from a very known team here saying he should commit suicid for the good of the community. Like WTF dudes?? His opinions (Emewn) might not have been according to "human rights" but still he didn't commit any crime and as far as I know he does have the right to voice his shitty opinions, you like it or not. Now he is permabanned (congrats, you all did it, now the server is glorius again right?) but I'm sure some of you did or said even worse stuff IRL than what Wilson/Emewn would say in his entire life. Now some people are trying to make the same thing to Wilson they once did to Emewn. Sick... 😑 As much as I don't agree with Wilson's behaviour, I really disliked his decision on Time Attack Event to not reward people who worked hard towards making his event a little more relevant, I honestly think leaving him as a staff member is better than not having anyone. He doesn't owe us anything or is even get paid, so I'm glad for every staff member who still spends some of their precious time to please such little playerbase. And I heavily dislike with the statement from Grantz that "people don't care for TA on Ultima". I might not live the TA world like Wilson does but once in a while that kind of competition is awesome, and I'm sure some people here like challenges. Sadly this community never embraced this aspect of PSO, which you like it or not, is one of the reasons PSO still lives in 2021. There was once a time where I was really working towards becoming a staff member alongside Wilson. Not sure if anyone remembers how messy looking for specific server information and how unpleasing the Ultima Discord was a few years ago, but we as a staff really worked together towards making the official community more bearable. And most of the great ideas came from Wilson, as he had a really well organized Discord server, which served as a model for our own. Most new quests, optimizations and a few other game improvements people unfortunately don't care about, came to Ultima all thanks to him. Liking him or not, it was thanks to him that Ultima moved a little forward in the right direction in the past years. Currently it might not be a very successfull server? Perhaps... Ephinea still have a greater playerbase than us? Of course... But I believe we should all be glad that someone still cares to run a server of a such old game, and we have serious staff members that sacrifice their time to deal with all the shitstorm that happens once in a while on Ultima. We liking Larva's decisions or not, people are able to play freely here because he still cares somehow to keep the server running. TL;DR, this topic is pointless. We should like Ultima for what it is; I personally had to be part of the staff channel, live the struggle the staff members have to live and even get banned by Larva itself to understand the dynamics of Ultima. You believing it or not, what the server is currently now is the best it could be, given the conditions.
  18. I suggest you to rename 20XX to 2021, that way people won't be confused and realize this topic belongs to the current year.
  19. That event took so long to start that I was almost thinking an Ultima's Brazilian Carnival Event 2021 would be happening instead
