Graphics Engine Update
Okay, look at it this way. This game came out 10+ years ago. It is hemorrhaging players, even though concept wise and even event wise is pretty awesome. There are no other games like it in many regards. However, unlike other games with this tenure, it has never received any graphical or engine updates. Seriously, I could probably run this game on the highest settings with a post shader on my phone.
So that brings up the big picture of how to keep this game alive. Because I'll be honest, I've had too many of my favorite old games get sunset and I don't want to see it happen here. The anime collabs are great and is one of the reasons I keep playing. However something needs to happen. New content is a dime a dozen, and except for the anime collabs, is mostly moot and uninteresting. What really needs to happen is a graphics/engine update. Runescape and WoW have both done this, and both profited from an increase in returning and new players. Hell, even just doubling the resolution of the textures would be a vast improvement (look at minecraft, those x64 and x128 textures are pretty awesome compared to the normal x16). As I mentioned, this game takes no resources to run, and with any modern computer capable of running WIndows 7 or higher has room to spare on graphics (and it isn't like they couldn't keep the graphics turned down if it was a problem). I love this game and want to love it more, but I'm having problems warranting it when I can go play mobile games that have better graphics. Show it a little love and polish it up a bit. I know at least 10 people myself who would play this game in a heart beat if graphics/engine were actually updated and playable. The biggest reason they don't play is the low end graphics and camera controls. I've never had a problem because I've played this game forever, but anyone who started MMOs on WoW or later have problems adapting to the antiquated movements and graphics. The graphics would be the priority, don't worry about the camera movement yet as that would require an entire UI overhaul to update.
Also, the ability to jump would be nice.
Love you guys, and hope to see improvements!
