So basically these private servers supposedly take out all the boring stuff that no one wants to do and leave you with…well, what do they leave you with? There is no motivation for you to try and beat the game any more as you have all the best stuff that the game has to offer. You cannot level and you can’t get better gear, leaving the only option to fight against other players or PvP. This however can turn out to be very frustrating as everyone has the same gear, no one works together, and nearly everyone is under then age of 13. PvP is made even worse by ‘donors,’ people who pay the hosts to give them customised weapons that have outrageous power, thus allowing them to defeat any other play with total ease.
So is it worth it? Despite the fact that you do not have to pay anything, so much of the content of the game is lost that even for free you aren’t getting very much at all, especially when the download for the game is over 9GB. After I quit the game, for a brief period of time I played on a private server but it was nothing compared to the retail version and I soon stopped that habit. Nowadays only my older brother plays a private server occasionally I managed to get some screenshots of the game. Well, this post perhaps begins my line of posts generally about computer games; they are a fun pastime for me and will enjoy sharing my nerdy experiences with you guys.
