Congratulations, if the rumors are true, that is. Your incredible levels of stupidity have reached new heights and somehow awakened me from my indefinite forum slumber. That being said, that sentence is the only part of this post that is trolly in any way.
I've watched this game for years now, I used to try to get the admins and devs pointed in the right direction by getting them to actually listen to what their players were saying, but I gave that up a long time ago and turned into the forum/game troll you all know and hate. That being said, I have to say, this is just plain stupid. I give you an A+ on your effort to make new things in this game, yes, but you will institute a fatal error if you put this patch out at ANY point. The level and Item cap. I understand this game is a business, and the goal is overall to make more money. However, if you make new level 65 items after the vast majority of your active player base has completed full thousand + dollar sets, and most of the rest of your player base has pushed their level 60 gear up high enough to be competitive after literally YEARS OF GRINDING, then this game will die. Once and for all, you will kill it. These players have worked for years to obtain perfection or near perfection on their gear sets, and now you turn to them and tell them oh yeah, by the way, all the crap you just created, its completely and utterly worthless.
That being said, there are several things you can still do to fix this before you make these rumors true, and put the final nail in the coffin of this god forsaken game, which tbh, I don't care one way or another, I just know people I care about do care. Keep your new level cap involved, but eliminate the gear. Maybe you could make it so these last 5 levels give a massive attribute boost or the gear these players have created improves via the experience gained in these 5 levels to become "seasoned gear". Something like that is fine, instituting a full set of new gear to create and obsoleting ALL of the 60 gear set is stupidity.
You want new options? I can sit here at my computer for 5 minutes and give you un-ending supplies of GOOD ideas that will make your player base stay and potentially grow. Its easy. Here, have a couple more, free of charge. Stop trying to change gear, if you want to keep people interested, throw a curve ball into the mechanics of their game play. Add some talents!!!!! Add some SKILLS to the character classes! There are literally UNENDING options in this field that have never been touched. Examples off the top of my head.. give a DK a new skill that that makes them go into a berserker killing rage (extreme increase in attack/crit and maybe a decrease in defense/resistance), but they lose their rampant anger once they use it, so they have to use their brain as to when to use it... give an Assassin an ability that allows them to completely negate a second life, perhaps at the cost of being able to go invisible for a period of time, I mean wth is the POINT in being assassinated when you come BACK to life. Give a sniper a bonus on sniper shot where they automatically teleport and become invisible for a short period of time after using the "Sniper Shot". I mean seriously, snipers don't just sit there and die after giving up their position in real life, so why would they in this game? There are ENDLESS OPTIONS to this. Yeah, maybe my suggestions are stupid, but they are certainly better than having to create an entirely new gear set where you will spend likely over 100 red stones PER piece of gear, not counting the weapon. Thats disgusting, and most of your players will laugh and finally say haha, thats a good joke, leave, and never come back.
Open your eyes Royal Quest, and understand that it is not even a good idea for rumors of this to be circulating. This game has had ups and downs, but whoever or whatever gave you the bright idea to make new level 65 gear is a fool. Do. Not. Do. It.
Forum rant over, back to hibernation, feel free to re-ban me.
