Private Server Rabbit Hole: elsword – Reddit
Hi! I used to play Elsword years back, started playing in mid 2014 stopped some time in 2017, recently heard a friend mention private servers and thought I’d look into them. I feel like I’ve fallen into some kind of rabbit hole and I could seriously use some answers here. I did some googling and after a good while of looking I was able to find three different private servers, but in reality it just seems that there’s only one. The first server I was able to find was VoidEls. From what I understand this was a fairly solid server that died in late 2017 for reasons I couldn’t figure out, so I quickly disregarded it. I did some more digging and found a thread in this subreddit discussing the pros and cons of two other servers called Zero and Origins and looked into both. Origins seems to just be a server that – according to their website – is updated to the version of the game I’m most familiar with, so no complaints however is where things got weird for me. I found their website, and was able to make an account. Their website said that they are in closed beta but I tried using one of their download portals nonetheless. Of course this wouldn’t work because of the closed beta situation. Their website appears to be 90% placeholder text which struck me as odd and despite their home page saying to join their Discord server for info and updates on the state of the server, the big Discord button which should redirect me to join their server contains an invalid link, which to me indicates that they’ve either implemented a temporary invite or the server just no longer exists. Also from what I can understand, Zero has been in closed beta for at least seven to eight months and I have no idea what the deal with it is because I’ve seen some actual discussion threads about it here where people are/were seemingly able to play it and make comparisons between it and Origins, and there’s footage of the server on YouTube from what I can see. I’m not really looking for recommendations because Origins is the only private server readily available to me, and I want to give private servers a shot because I mainly dropped the official game over grievances with the cash shop. I just would love some insight into how weirdly cryptic Elsword Zero is.

MrHappy calls Ninja disrespectful for playing on Nasomi – Page 3
The entire argument that it hurts retail FFXI is absurd. They’re not pulling from the same population of people, so there’s no many people here would honestly go play Retail if Nasomi was shut down right now? If Mr. Happy wants to call it disrespectful, whatever. He’s entitled to that opinion. “Games evolve, generations grow up” is the part of his argument that I think stems from actual retardation. Yes, people grow up – and can not like the same thing you like. Yes, the game did evolve, and a lot of people don’t like it. The act of “playing on a private server” is not disrespectful, in my opinion, because the content they have developed since then sucks compared to the previous content. I played WOTG, Abyssea, some Adoulin – I tried it – it was poor quality and execution. It isn’t disrespectful to the devs for liking something that they developed in the past. That’s like saying “You shouldn’t like X person’s old music, because they made new music” where music = whatever the heck you want it to be. I’m not saying that games shouldn’t evolve, I’m saying games CAN and DID evolve in the wrong direction. I’ve played UO, EQ, XI, WoW, GW, GW2, XIV – etc. The reason XI excelled because it differentiated itself (maybe not so much compared to EQ, its inspiration) and did not fit the mold. I’d love to see Asura’s/Retail’s population in a fictional world where SE did launch an official CoP/TOUA era 75 cap server. I’d be willing to bet it would tank in comparison. It isn’t “nostalgia glasses” or “remembering it being better then it was” – no, the game was just hands down better. If retail XI was more fun to me, or felt better to me, I’d play that instead. That’s why we play Nasomi instead. tl;dr Mr. Happy is a tool.
