Just in case you guys haven't been keeping up with the other thread, here's where it seems the team is at right now:

We are also going to change over to have 1-2 new Hardcore servers. These will have updated math, ultra challenge monsters with skills that hit HARD. You'll need to have the proper set-up, and you may just want to bring your friends. Yorumi and co will try out the stat pool set-up, and some other fun things he's had in mind to add more challenge to the game.

There will be exclusive drops and some additional rewards (that is not new... we have always put drops on ultra bosses... now new ones will just be restricted to a unique server).

We will, as always, adjust plans for the hardcore servers based on your feedback, since it is such a new plan.

But what this does is give us the best of both worlds -- all you players who love the feel of the old servers get to keep them. For those who want a real challenge... we'll get that for you. Rest assured. Yorumi's already plotting.


Caesaris: yes, getting the server rewrite finished and live for the regular servers is the top priority.

After so many years, radically changing how AQW is played (and feels) would have a negative impact on most players (who look at this as a casual game). Adding in hardcore servers gives us a platform to create content for players who want to focus on strategy, numbers, etc. That way, we can build content for both types of players.

i'm with the hardmode server idea, its good to have the option to whether or not to play on easy or hard.
especially with a game this farming heavy

I'm totally game for a tougher hardcore server. I'll probably stick the regular one for the most part, but I think having the option for players who are into that sort thing is great.

Agree with the others, higher risk, higher loss but higher rewards

agree definitely.
It will be cool if we have a diferent aqw running around with hardmode.

I'm not sure whether to be excited or terrified of a DeathMode Binky.

binky is already deathmode, just move it over to the deathmode server as is and cut the one on the regular servers hp down a peg.

A hard mode server is an amazing idea. (imo) A massive problem with AQW is that it lacks difficulty. That is among the factors that have led to the rise of taxing, repetitive farming quests. Simply increasing the game's difficulty would cause various issues because so many of these quests exist and their monotony would be exacerbated. It's not the most fun when regular mobs start stunning or blinding you. A hardmode server would therefore provide a source of difficulty without interfering with existing farming quests.

The introduction of hardcore servers may also allow new types of farming quests to be implemented. With monsters becoming an actual challenge, there may be way for more fun, less monotonous quests. We may finally break free from the curse of RNG and doing one quest over and over.
