    Default The short era before magic fked this game

    Yes it existed, compare this video to videos of 5v5 tournys now and you will see a firework show of magic difference ;d This is when the game was all movement/aim and imo skill. The blinds, knock ups, WoF, all of it only fucked this game. I respect confusion for what it is, and that was the only blind kiddos had back then.

    One of my fondest memories of this game is sitting on top of this big ass tree that was over a goblin spawn in elf lands plucking arrows down killing people farming goblins. Did this for near two hours without people realizing it wasn't the goblins killing them.

    Fun times.

    As someone who was around back then, I didn't really think it was more skilled. While WoFs and knock ups weren't really prevalent, cycling r50s/r90s with full damage AoEs and no cooldowns were around. Also you could wear heavier armor due to unburden lasting an ungodly amount of time. Aren't you the Mahirim in the video spamming magic, mostly hitting the ground near your opponents? Also, most people didn't even have 1 r50 so it was easy to fight hugely outnumbered.

    This, extremely this.

    Killing 12 with 2 simply because of lack of magic sucked assholes.

    Although I think WoF is retarded as well as blinds should have a slightly longer CD, the game is more skill based than before.

    Also, I resubbed and haven't regretted it, even if it's for just a month it's only 10$. PvP at every VCP, cairn/yssam/middle has been poppin', even the starter NPC towns have people in them again.

    Like he said. Fuck wofs and all the blinds, but other than that the game back then was way easier for players with a character edge. I know since I had 100 fire magic when it was possible to count on one hand the amount of people per alliance with one school at 100. This was just ridiculous.
