    Most of the popular games aren't popular because they're pvp, they're popular because theyre arena style games, of which this one is not.

    Those games are also incredibly popular because they're being pushed hard by influencers on the likes of twitch telling people they should like them because they like them, even though the games are pure trash and worse at pushing loot boxes than this one even.

    Then you get all the middle to lower tier streamers hopping on the bandwagon for shallow views and revenue giving the impression the games actually decent when it's not.

    Just look at apex legends... EA games go to release Battlefront 2 and get ripped apart for loot boxes and microtransactions then release that trash and the people lap it up obliviously.

    It's a top lol for sure. EA execs must have hilarious morning meetings

    Sorry but dcuo is a pve game with pvp as a added bonus. No one really wants to pvp when there are too many pc hackers. You want something done about pvp that’s where you start. If that’s not handled first on the list there’s no need to go any further.

    Humbly agree.

    Peeps say this game is slowly losing players. Opening up a second game is going to take peeps away from this game, making this game's population even smaller.

    Will it bring in more players? Probably it would. But I personally do not believe it would bring in enough players to replace the ones that jump to the other server, nor bring in enough new players to justify the costs.

    It is a nice idea, even if it won't work / happen, though. :)

    I would expect the same on DCUO Classic for me it wouldn't be a problem if i had to pay for membership on that server honestly. I was doing that while playing on regular server i was paying monthly memebership for like 7+ years. I even think this should be the case on Classic Server a company must have some revenue from doing that. Just watching some old dcuo videos on youtube atm and man this nostalgia is strong here. If i had opportunity to play again dcuo from the past i wouldn't hesitate for a second just to play it and paying membership wouldn't be any problem.

    using other games success isn't actually viable in this case. financial backing player support and most importantly a larger team of devs would be needed. and as of this moment no real way of how daybreak would gain from this venture has been shown.

    so atm while there maybe a few clamoring for this idea many have also already stated they wouldn't bother with it.

    now just to throw this out there if they were to say make and release a dcuo part 2 especially with next gen consoles on the horizon then wait a year or whatever then maybe do a dcuo classic(newer console most likely) then that might be more worth the effort on their part.

    If they have the time/money/staff to deal with this then i'd hope they'd use it on more universally appealing things that affect more players

    Couldn't this be done with the pvp server that no one uses?

    Make it s pvp playground for old school gameplay

    Some of the most fun I ever had in this game were the wars in the park.

    You mean in Gotham's Robinson Park? Or Metropolis's Centennial Park?
    I personally enjoyed the wars in both. :D Eh these old GOOD days, i miss them and i wish they could come back through that Classic Server.

    Robinson park, rarely Centennial. Coming out there when nothing was going on that night and just creating an epic confrontation between factions.

    ...of course this also lead to multiple blue screens and crashes (PS3) but was well worth it!

    The same was happening for me on PC back then.I don't forget that monstrous lag it was a nightmare due to many players fighting around and the animations on one server xD.But still it was fun even there were lags and server was crashing.

    It started on JTera where such idea received a lot of support from the community then it happened on KTera during the tournament and now EU. People wanted it they were asking for it a lot and they did it. Mepps wanted a solution so i gived Classic Sever but without support it's gonna be hard to make such a thing on DCUO unfortunately i don't see much interest here from the others. :( But that's aside Mepps said that It would take an enormous amount of time and work to unscramble the state of PvP now, On current DCUO that's for sure,i can't imagine the work they had to put to change something with current pvp while it is a one big tangle and everything is so screwed up or simply just roll back everything as it was before i believe it is near impossible, but on Classic Sever? this wouldn't be a problem. Define a new direction, and execute that new direction successfully, which again may well be impossible. It is possible, a Classic Server is the solution. It seems to be a low probability that we would find a new or old design most players enjoyed. Again, many players enjoyed old design. So i say Classic Server. It seems to be a low probability that we would be able to execute it to the standards we and you require. Classic Server would satisfy the needs of the most hardcore pvp players (including me). It seems to be a low probability that such an update would meaningfully change player behavior with regard to PvP. Classic Server would calm many players who cried about broken pvp back then (including me) this for sure would change my behavior as for pvp. When pvp was good i didn't came here and i wasn't complain. It started after PVP was destroyed and i won't stop until it will be fixed. It seems to be a low probability that any revenue would result. On Classic Server revenue would be regenerated fast through making that classic server which is supposted to bring players and i'm sure many would come back. I will speak here for myself but i also believe that many if would play on Classic server they would buy membership especially for Legends PVP. While i were playing on regular server back then i was playing all the time with legendary also my friends and i don't regret at all, well maybe until pvp was alive after it started to be broken and neglected i just cancelled my subscription and quit the game.

    I like the idea this will bring back memories and old school players will get their old game back

    That's the case and for sure many old school players would come back if classic server would appear.

    First of all. I dont really care about having a classic server as the regular server needs all the players we can

    Second. Your comparison of Apex to BF2 is just wrong. BF2 released as a full price game with loot boxes that were directly tied to progression and there was no way around it. Apex is free to play 100 percent and every earnable item is purely cosmetic. Has no bearing on gameplay and is not pay to win.

    Apex is far from trash. Its a new polished take on a genre thats fresh that doesnt totally fleece its consumers. Just because it's popular and its cool to hate on doesn't make it trash. People play games because they are fun. Not because a streamer told them to. I had never seen a single stream before playing it. DCUO use to, to me, have that same fun factor with the original combat and less of this current lets charge them for everything attitude. This game could take a few notes. Not saying Apex is perfect and i still dont like loot boxes especially when tied to progression.

    Either way. If they made the existing server to previous game updates id be happy. If you could revert it back to 2012 status id be down. But now, creating a separate one would probably divide an already underwhelming community.

    Haha, you're entitled to your differing opinion about Apex, it's just the new bandwagon fornite game being bandied around until something else comes out. that's my view on it; you however, don't have to agree. You're allowed to like it if you choose despite my thoughts on the matter :D
