I started PWI back in 2008 on Lost City retail server. When they broke the economy on it back in 2009 I moved to private servers. The other day I was going through old servers I remembered with a faction member who had also played loads of them. Some names that many of us remember as will you Hermod. PWE, Vendetta, LMS, Senlyn, Exordium, Triallion, Perfect Town, Fake Perfect World, Blue Dragon Network, Nexus, Abysswars, Epic.
After few years of moving from server to server I came across PWR. Was purely by chance after spotting it on extremetoplist. Like the look from the start cos had plenty of custom content, wasn't donate dependent to get ahead, and had a good player base. Back then was a lot of players who were not yet end game geared and was active cross faction parties doing warsong/lunar normal fcc. This was pre your greatest content triumph imo Mega FCC, which has proceeded to kill many of us in recent times lol. The staff on here are helpful and fair, put in long hours, and very loyal to you. Even if sometimes they need Loki to come on and whip em into shape once in a while. You are very passionate about your server and committed to its development and future. All the changes you make safety comes first to protect peoples hard work over time, rather than making snap decisions that could have bad consequences. The rates here imo are a bit too easy as I am an old school grinder, and yes I would love to see red envelopes removed and a bit more pvp. (That last was to keep this post real). but all in all after 9 years of playing PW, even after some tricky times, I am here and will be here for the foreseeable future because this is the best PW server in existence at the moment, and we all know it. keep up the good work Hermod, Loki, and staff.
