Some of you may have realized we've recently gone from a nice approximate 120-150 average pop and 160+ during WoE to a much lower number practically overnight. This is unfortunately due to 3 large guilds leaving all at the same time. While we've done our best to immediately address their feedback and complaints, it seems they've decided to take their presence elsewhere. While that seems depressing, we're looking onward. MvPs have had their power severely reduced. Our custom changes such as the global Kaupe addition have been nearly completely reverted save for the new updated HP, EXP, and loots. Player classes will now start to receive more quality of life changes rather than balance tweaks (see: nerfs). The intention we had behind these changes was never to annoy people or make MvPing and killing stuff with small groups unfun. We realize this now, and we're owning up to it. Again.
This will not be another Velvet or another Cookie. This is and will be far, far better. We have no plans to abandon Leika and will continue to actively develop and implement new content regardless of population. Yes, we do have plans to attract more players again. Will that be much harder now than before? You bet. Are we giving up on that? Nope. We're learning from our own mistakes and moving forward with the best Renewal server the world's ever seen. We will shortly be taking our advertising much more seriously, including a front page ad on RateMyServer's main page.
Ask yourself this one question: "What do rival servers currently have over LeikaRO?"
