I would like you, the TL users to vote on a TL reset, the current Top lists would be saved and put into a 'Hall of Fame' and I would probably host one last great war, in which the top 5 users would get a small starting stipend for their new accounts. Please vote, and also list any ideas you might have regarding this.

No; a thousand nos.

First, a selfish reason: I JUST got my account back. My account that is like 6 years old. I wanted to come back and play it to #1 on money. I almost suspect this is deliberate...

Second, what has resetting helped in the past? Remember when all the money was reset. That did a lot of good. People came back for a few days, then left. Let TL die without f***ing us players who like to play some TL occasionally have something to come back and play. It's like giving a terminal brain cancer patient a radiation dose sufficient to remove their immune system; you're just hastening death for no objective reason, because it's not leukemia!

If you reset, you will lose a lot of long time players, like me. Can you imagine a TL without dOnDoN?! Ok, there would have been no money reset, but still, can you?:P

How about resetting, but giving players an option to carry over ONE account of their choice, minus any money? Stats and items stay, though. To me, TL is more about the Legacy part than the stupid Terran part.:)

and, if you did add a couple new ranks, do you mean after deity? if so, they would have to be possible to reach. -.-

No, primarily because some people worked too hard to get to where they were. Yes, some accounts may be exploited/botted but they actually put the time in and effort to get that high.

Why reset when nobody plans on playing the game anymore?

It just doesn't make sense. One week you guys are going to be happy to see a reset and the next nobody is going to care. Soon netnexus is going to be its usual self - barren and dry.

The game is dead, so let it be.

like the other says: some people really worked to get to were they are today...
I worked hard (with no bot) to get to were I am now and reseting TL will really be a bad choice for those like me who will lost everything...

-IceFox- said on: 2007-05-02 12:37 pm

Agreed, also considering the fact that only the top 25 records will be kept, think of how many players who spent their time to finally hit deity and to have the hope of furthermore boosting their character.. well its pretty much shattered.

They have nothing to show for themselves and why should we listen to noobs QQing all over the forums?

World of Warcraft for example - I started playing nearly seven months ago and frankly, I had dreams of doing Naxx. Did it happen? No. But I didn't demand a reset cause I started playing later than everyone else. I began as a level one gnome on Novemember 27th, 2007. And well, lets just say I'm now a 70 with epics and about two get two piece tier 4.

Its possible to achieve something if you put your mind and life toward it. However, by resetting the database its just like these noobs above pressing the IQUIT-EZMODE button.

The game is way beyond its prime and past its time.

Theres no way that the population and activity on netnexus will increase because of one game.

Why? - Its a text game and there are better things to do with your time and enjoyment rather than clicking away randomly.
TheSource (Admin) said on: 2007-05-02 12:49 pm

I'll probably make a top 100 list rather than save the top 25s.

4184 Days, 21 Hrs, 28 Min, 16 Sec ago
But Thesource..... why do you whant to reset TL? to make it more fun ?....like icefox says.. this game is dead.

The only thing that could be interesting here is that you make the TL 1.5 or 2.0 whatever is called the next TL... now, people could have some more fun discovering the new options, monsters, ranks and everything else.

I don't mind if you leave it or reset it. I'll always play just to keep it going. I've been playing TL through hard times and good times, that won't change with a reset.
DrakenRahl said on: 2007-05-02 01:48 pm
4184 Days, 20 Hrs, 37 Min, 10 Sec ago
when you say top 100, do you mean, top 100 in everything, like 4 differnt, top 100's, or top 100 overall, if that is possible. Like, taking the average of the accounts rankings, and rank it on the overall ranking.. maybe..
Red (Tester) said on: 2007-05-02 02:01 pm
4184 Days, 20 Hrs, 23 Min, 50 Sec ago
Him resetting the TL database and adding 10 mobs and 2 new ranks is basically just like adding TL 1.5...

=P Just named differently. There are new additions and a fresh start for every body. It's a great idea.
TheSource (Admin) said on: 2007-05-02 02:06 pm
4184 Days, 20 Hrs, 18 Min, 56 Sec ago
Most likely 5 Top 100s, one for each, and a 5th for an 'overall' score

Everybody posting above voting yes has either quit the game and sold their account - or are too lazy to grind their way up to the top 25 leader board. I'm glad that you nubs summarize the entire netnexus community as being lazy, unmotivated, and effortlessly deprived.

Grats on making netnexus an even worse place.

IceFox.. You make it sound like it's no problem grinding your way to the top.

If that's the case, then what does it matter to you? Just grind-on again. :/

A reset would give us all an equal chance to have some fun. I'm getting the vibe that the only people who don't want it reset are the ones who put way too much time into the game (Hmmm... I wonder why?). You say TL's dead... THIS WILL BRING IT BACK AGAIN! You're just being selfish.

I vote yes for the already decided poll.

[Added at 05/02/2007 17:50:42 by Victor_Troska]
And yeah, I have a Deity myself, I won it off of SK, I don't know if it was ranked or not, but bleh, I don't really care because it was basically like beating a dead horse to even try.

Not reseting it, is like having it stay the playground it is for you 5 (or ten, whatever) people. Reseting though, let's everyone in to have some fun.

And I think you seem to be missing the point that this is a great opportunity to bring more players to the game, and maybe they would tell some of their friends to bring more people to it.

Hell, I'd be willing to invite some of my friends to NN that would like Terran Legacy, and I know some that have quit a long time ago, that'd come back for something like this.

And when it gets updated/reset, I'm almost positive that a lot of the current users will give it a try to show the new users (even more) they'd have a chance at actually ranking, because the numbers aren't so abnormally high that they have no hope (or idea) that they could even rank.

And when you're frequently updating things like *cough* the news page *cough* it really shows newcomers that they haven't stumbled upon some old site that hasn't been touched for years living off of the diehard users (like it has been, not anymore though :D).

I really don't get what's so hard to understand about this...

Right, when I started playing, I had the goal to make it on the top 25 for money, and that's one of the reasons I stayed in the game for awhile, or atleast I didn't quit right away.

4184 Days, 8 Hrs, 22 Min, 25 Sec ago
i vote no (despite the other thread) simply because all of the effort i put into getting onto top 25 in something i didn't care what and now i'm on there this is happening and i'd like to remain on there but obviously not

Dondon had good point let one account be transfered over even if it is money reset and not on top 25 would be worth for me to play on... i have had one account the whole time and still play so i hope that the few of us left at least get a say reset=me not returning to much effort

i thought my TL days were over when a couple of years back Dondon stole my account and accused me of all types of things i cried that day (yes i did thats pretty lame but i was like 10 or 11 or something) as it seems TL is over for me if reset occurs

i look back on TL being fun and worth my effort when i first started out on Dial-Up hours and hours of my time, seems as though all is lost and effort is wasted because no i did not cheat because frankly i wasn't interested in cheating and i don't even know how

goodbye all not worth wasting years of my time again if reset is go ahead

RIP the REAL Terran Legacy

Cry me a river, build me a bridge, and let TS walk on over.


Really, lets think about it. You can have 8 people login to tl per week. Or you can reset and have 80 people possibly log on to TL a week.

If you put so much time in this game, put some more time into it. It would be no differnt then having a private and getting it to the current top 25. Plus you got a few new things to look foward too along the way.

Although the vote is over, I must state my opinion.

I vote yes.

A big reason the people are voting NO is because these are the people that only log in to stay on the Top List. I doubt half of them play anyways, and they just don't want their legacy ruined. Well, there will be the Top 100 of all Time, so therefore it wasn't for NOTHING. Stop being lame and let everyone start fresh. If somebody were to pick up TL today and play for a week, they'd most likely get discouraged from the Top Boards, because almost EVERYONE there used one form of a bot or another. Time to play by hand again, folks!

Oh, and BTW, I have been playing TL for like 9 years and I'm happy to start over, even though I have 2 Top Ranked files and YEARS of wasted time, I still believe it would be fun to be able to actually SEE your progress.

i didn't cheat and i was still playing up until i noticed that it was going to be reset...

and what will you play it like once or twice and like give up again once you get to Admiral or something just because you realise it's still the same

the challenge is getting to the top 25 and staying there but of coarse my no is useless
