What do you really think of Ely in its current state?
I haven't played in while but the times that I have been on even for an hour or so I belive Ely is in the worst state so far. Player count is down to its lowest and the people that are on are either bankstanding or afking at home. Updates seem to be on a back burner even just bi-weekly updates like the small update we just had. boxes seem to be playing a huge part of Ely's survival atm but looking on the store and still seeing some monthly boxes remaining shows to me that the boxes aren't doing as well as they once where.
What makes you come back to play everyday?
N/A cos I'm MIA
What would you really like to see in the future of Ely?
I would like to see a OSRS version of Ely and I know that was under construction a long time ago but seemed to have died off. I would love to see the streams again like before when FPSMerk came on Ely and I believe that would also help revive Ely as player count was hitting all times highs of 50+ and the server was popping. Some type of mass boss or Minigame events. I remember we did have a few Minigames events at Castle Wars (still No.1 CWars players BTW) and even all the way back when Ely was a new server Alot of us would camp corp beast. Now there doesn't seem to be any real interaction between players other then new players asking where something is.
Any comments of issues you think are currently concerning?
The turn around of players on Ely has always been a concern of mine.
What does Ely need for you to come back and play again?
Having something more to do. I know the collection log came out awhile ago and that could be something I could be working towards but I never really got into doing it. One thing that I know will bring me back is the Comp cape (T) its been in discussion of this server for a long time and a very controversial topic within the player base at to what should be part of it and shouldn't as its to much of a grind to do certain suggestions but now it seems to have become a grind just waiting on the release of it. Everytime a OSRS boss has been added into Ely I've returned for a little while but not for as long as I hoped. Seeing more OSRS content will defo keep me coming back.
What made you part ways from playing Ely?
Tbh I basiclly did everything I wanted to. I achieved 200m exp in all stats and Got my Comp cape but even after that I still stayed and got my alt to 4bil total exp. I think with alot of other OG's leaving Ely and the server once active community full of players bossing together and standing at home but actually talking it seems to be gone. before I stopped playing it turned into a place full of charecters just afking and even the few times I have logged back onto Ely its the same thing I may to one or two people saying Hi but thats about it.
I hope that one day I do just wake up and find that spark that I once had to play Ely every day and I hope that others to do but I feel like alot of OG's have drifted to far away now and to anyone that reads this even though yes im english im retarded and there is probs spelling mistakes everywhere. so enjoy.
