I know most of you do not know me, but I played Near Reality almost 10 years ago and decided to start playing it since the relaunch. I am making this post because I truly want this server to succeed and I believe that it will happen if the owner steps up and addresses everyone’s concerns.
I’m sure you have all seen all of the negative posts, comments and rants that a lot of the other players have had to say since the relaunch. Some people highlight some very valid concerns and others are just too ignorant to see that it takes time for a server to get “back in its groove” (the economy being wack as hell atm).
Regardless of what complaints are valid, we are seeing a growing negative trend within the community and I believe that at this point the owner NEEDS to speak up and post a “press release” of some kind to reassure the players that trust you enough to not only put their time but also their money into this server so that it could be something great.
It takes a lot of moving parts to make a RSPS successful and two of the biggest moving parts are the developers constantly coming out with updates and the players enjoying the server enough to pay money to keep it alive. I know for a fact that Near Reality has made quite a bit of money since the server was released so the players are doing their part. Now it is time for the developers to give us a shimmer of hope.
I have been told that the developers are working on a lot of big updates and if that is the case then the developers need to be using the section in the forums to give teasers about the updates and to get the players excited and looking forward to something. It does no good for the server for the developers to be working behind closed doors. The players want to feel like they are a part of something big, so let them be.
I do have faith that this server will turn around and will be great in a few months. I will still be playing everyday and helping out as much as I can.
