Thread: Full Petition to bring back Arrival Hall

  1. #1

    Full Petition to bring back Arrival Hall
    Video of the Arrival Hall

    Some peeps also want to clarify that they want arrival hall back in some way, not strictly as a starting area; though starting area would be fine, and even edited to some extent.

    Well this worked for the items dropping on nub island so here goes.

    This is from the personal experiences and speculation of me:

    I had originally found this game when searching up some free MMOs, at which point I found Anarchy Online. When I found it I was like, "wow scifi MMO kewl!!" So I went on the website, downloaded the client and waited forever for it to install. When I finally logged on I promptly rolled an agent (cause it lewked srs kewl) and ventured on to rubi-ka! And was sharply disappointed when I was greeted to, sand? grass? lizards? wut? The graphics were like a non issue at that point and I was just thinking "this is a scifi game?!"

    The only thing there that even reinforced that it was a scifi game were some people shooting reets. But I wasn't ready to just give up on this game! No sir! I tried to figure everything out... but of course because of lack of direction I had no idea wtf I was doing and inevitably ran to the left. I ran and ran and ran till I was over run by roller rats "nooezzz I dying!" I must have done that like 3 times before I realized I had to talk to talk to that brandon thorn guy. That gave me some insight into what I was supposed to do and somehow figured the rest out over the next hour or so.

    Of course this has nothing to do with guidance on IP, GUI or anything, just like location. It was so confusing when I started up that I nearly gave up on this game, and frankly that's why I think a lot of people have given up over the years. After watching some videos of arrival hall there is no doubt that just based on the setting alone, and what happens would I have a much better grounding of what was happening at the time.

    So I propose this petition to bring it back, a petition which I will be constantly updating. If you want to show your support please send a tell, pm, or post in this thread and I will add you to the petition.

    Thank you
    - Dagger

    To devs: You failed redesigning MPs as NTs with pets. I want my debuffer back.
    Dreamer: Basically - I wish THIS much effort was put in to ALL profs rebalance docs.

    Kintaii: Genele is more hardcore than you, your guildmates, and anyone else you've ever played with
    Anarrina: Trust me, I'm not that scary in real life.

    I'd love to see the arrival hall back ingame (And the ship crash!) Both were great for getting into the game and story. There's a heck of a lot more to AO than just graphics and gameplay. Get the player to feel like a part of the game and they might stay

    Maybe add it as the place you go right as you reach mainland, so players can interact and welcome new players, and they can learn more about the different cities and factions and vendors and other stuff before starting their adventures. Have the different doors lead to the different main cities similar to the teleport tower but not only one way. Would feel a lot more welcoming than getting warped to an empty city

    Arrival Hall is awesome.

    Xirayne: I couldn't care less about who is clueless or what the exact definition "real" pvp is in ao, I want "fun" pvp!

  8. #8
    yes, please bring back arrival hall.
    wtf happened to my avatars eyebrows?

    I used to listen to Dubstep in the 90's... every time I connected to the internet.

    Yes please. I would really like to see the arrival hall back. And the nurse that automatically started a dialog with you on the island. She also used to point you towards Brandon.

    It's completely retarded that now you just pop on a beach, with no directions whatsoever. No wonder most newbs just run to the left and die. Sure, Brandon has a blue name, but last time i rolled a new toon on a clean AO install, the "show names" option was defaulted to off. Not sure if this is still the case...

    Anyway, put me on that list too.

    "A whole new place to run around for ages in then die suddenly without warning."

    "I know who coded pet pathing... and when I see him I say "/follow" and I start waling in to walls :P"

    The "Trolls" option is incorrect. The term trolls is not used to describe the gathering of information on the Internet.
