Question Would people pay a monthly subscription to have the "Real" Conquer 1.0 back?

I'm just curious overall if people would be up for this.

I would totally be down with some sort of monthly subscription fee that's like ~5$ or something small. TQ could still sell DBs the way they used to do and i feel like it would totally be worth it for them.

Not like it will actually happen but it's just something for TQ to think about.

I've searched long and hard, trying to find a game that even closely resembles what the REAL classic conquer was like... mining, hunting mets and +1's, being great with only a few sockets... etc. and there's honestly NOTHING OUT THERE EVEN CLOSE.

It was honestly an amazing game and i know i speak for a ton of people when i say that the lottery/item mall/socket making/battle power ruined a great thing.

Like i mentioned before, i'm sure that it will never come back and that's totally sad, but i am just curious as to what people think about this idea.

I just miss the REAL conquer

Idk depends on drop rate of DBs since that's what you'd be hoping for to get gear.

1 DB every 30,000 monsters I'd do it, from what I know DBs were worth like 60kk cause cps didn't exist.

Also gotta remember there was no events to get money back then so you hunted ****, thought everyone would always go to dis as it has high drop rates.

I'd really not wanna have to work hard to make a character half as good as my current one I've spent 3 years making, even if that character would be one of the top players.

Also was bulking allowed then? Would it be allowed here? If there are DB buyers I'd say no as well being that you could spend a week working your ass off to get what 1 person bought with 15 dollars, and it still would not be much.

bulking was allowed back then. DBs sold for ~5-6 mil. +1's were anywhere from 300k-3 mil depending on what it was. obviously it would take a while for a server to get up and running and develop market value for things, but that's the fun in it all.

Hunting used to matter because like you're saying, that was the only way to get gold. Now there's no reason to hunt or do anything.

Sockets in non weapons used to be a huge deal. If you got lucky and made one it was a game changer. Now they pop out of the lotto every other minute.

it didnt matter in the past if someone spent a bunch of money on DBs because you didn't have to be full 2 soc super +6 just to be good. Some with super 2 soc weaps and another soc or 2 somewhere else with refined dragon gems would be able to 2-3 hit some of the best geared trojans with FB/SS.

The game was much more balanced back then. It was so great.

I MIGHT consider paying if i could actually copy my characters the way they were when they implemented CO 2.0, but going through through the painfully long tao leveling just scares me away.

Getting that "starter" gear like a proper weapon took way too long. Although i must say, in roughly a year of old co got quite a bit of dbs from random drops.
Didn't get or see a single one since CO 2 was launched.

charge monthly fee. Bring old drop rates back. Allow Water Farming. Don't allow purchasing of DBs at all. Make monthly fee somewhere between 20-30 USD. Would be fun imo.

I agree with you on all points. I would 100% pay monthly for Conquer Online if it were changed back to the way it was in the old days, as described above, where everybody knew everybody, and you worked for respect.

hmmm, Radio Joe's forum date is March 2005.

CO 2.0 arrived November 2005.

My guess was they were 3.5-4 million just before 2.0 came out. Just a guess.

Why get excited if db prices off by a little.. it was 7 years ago. : )

No matter what TQ does with this game, we can never bring this back. The player base has already been polluted.

If...(and this is a huge "IF") TQ could bring back the game the way it used to be, our family would most likely join in. Because now...even though you can "play for free", there really is nothing even if you pay to play. Somewhere along the line, the developers forgot that the whole point of playing a game is to actually PLAY ;p
