Tbh I would like to play retro just because I miss old osas so damn much, however I absolutely hate grinding. Everyone seems to be fine with running DP 300 times to try to drop a decent turq, but for me, something about that makes me want to shrivel up into a ball and light myself on fire.
The reason I enjoy 2.0 so much is mainly because of the achievement system, because it caters to my playstyle as a gamer. I miss 1.29 like crazy. I was just a kid when I started playing it back in 2006. Back then it was a social game for me; I spent the first 2 years dicking around in Incarnam with my brother and irl friends. I was never even brave enough to visit Astrub until I met Palindrome, but that's a whole other story lol. We used to have competitions to see who could get to the highest level by only fighting Chafers (My brother spent 100kk on a Gobball set and reached level 36 on a Sadida so he won xD) and I always lost because I hate grinding... Cannot stress that enough. I would love to play with y'all, but it's just not realistic for me.
