Default NODIATIS' Timeline

I had this idea for a while. Im trying to write down history of Nodiatis' evolution.
Ive been playing this game since 2011s and dont know much about the gameplay prior, if U have any information You think should be noted in the timeline, leave a post. Also some numbers might be wrong, as i dont remember exact dates, please post your versions. I want to continue filling more information as Nodiatis makes progress.

2/23/2002 - The DARK TIMES. X-Era.
Nodiatis just started to shape in someones head under code name Project-X, the guy called himself Glitchless.

5/8/2008 - BIG-BANG. Beginning of GOLDEN ages.
Project X Public Beta release. First Nodiatians start to explore the world. Time cards costed just up to a couple dozen thousands of gold, ranging from 5k to 25k gold per piece.

6/6/2009 - REALM FORMED.
Nodiatis Official Release.

2009s - EPIC ERA.
Formation of the first clans in Nodiatis, HoNor and PoWer respectively. Introduction of the Runes to the realm. The strongest people in the world had Epic armor, weapons, pet and gems, less prosper crowd used Rare items. Time cards costed about 75 thousands gold per piece.

2011s - LEGENDARY DEFENSE ERA
Superior protection gear was brought to the world in a form of Legendary Armor. Elite players start slowly switching to legendary suiting. Hellram armor was favored the most at the time, with Armors essences of that type being the most costly ones of the kind. Second popular armors were Raiden suiting parts, specifically Legs and Sleeves. Leading PvP teams used AOE Direct Damage as main sourse of damage. Tank-Healer-DPS team set up was showing best results in PvP. Recovery stat line was considered as weaker option, so players used to rely on Manergy Thief sources or Rephlenisher to use Gems. Time card prices keep increasing steadily, costing roughly around 250 thousands gold.

2012s - LEGENDARY WEAPON ERA
First Legendary weapon was revealed to the realm, a Legendary Staff. Legendary Melee, Archery gear along with legendary Pets dropped soon after that. Crafters became even more valuable part of community. Legendary Pets were not craftable at the time, making any Legendary pet dropped being unique and utmost valuable. Many Legendary weapon sources prefer to stay as Monopoly. Growing average player damage output increases the flow of gold to the world's economy. Time card prices keep increasing, getting closer to 500 thousands gold per piece.

2013s - DOT and Death Licking ERA. Evolution accellerates. Average HP Increases.
Damage over Time Damage has proven itself as a winning trand in PvP. Top teams consisted of Tank-Healer-DoTter. Beast masters started to dominate in PvE gold making. Lick of Death Legendary whip was very commonly seen on capped players suits. Legendary Pets became craftable, leading Beastmasters to the road of success. Dragontamer armor essences went up in prices, being one of the most costly ones of the kind. DD casting populatity start to go down steadily, lowering Raiden essence prices. Average player HP increases with introduction of new Epic skill line. Newly introduced account upgrade Double Accel turned Time Card market upside down overnight, the prices went up to 1 million per piece just in two weeks. Players now are able to farm more in less time.

Mid 2013s - Regenrerer ERA or Recovery ERA, DOT ERA continues.
Health regeneration was discovered as an easy and cheap way to survive in both PvP and PvE. Hellram armor pieces start to lose thier value rapidly with Hellram essence prices falling drasticaly to just a few dozens thousands of gold per piece. All attention now goes towards new brand, Earthfusion armors. Buffed Manergy Regeneration brought gem casting to a new level. People started to use Recovery Stat Line effectively. Average player HP start to raise with epic HP bonus. Unstoppable Health regenerating capabilities set Healers to the back stage of the PvP scene. DOT was the only reliable way to compete versus Regeners.

2014s - Dawn of Beastmasters. KOK ERA.
Beastmasters skill line was fixed, bringing Whip and Pet users back in line with other farming builds. Lick of Deaths were massively sold away by the crowd, and replaced with a brand new Helkok Instigator Whip. Some Beastmaster are able to farm faster using autoshoting, they call such builds Archer-BM hybrids. Time cards prices went up closer to 1 million golds.

September 2014s - Reality split and Parallel Worlds.
Second independant game server was launched. Some players migrated to a brand new server. But original Server 1 still holds most of the player base.

2015s - Dawn of Regeners. The end of Legendary Monopoly. DoT and Drains ERA. Beginning of DD-Archer ERA.
Newly introduced Anti-Regen Gear put a solid counter against those using Health Regeneration in PvP, including Regen reduction weapons and Flesheater Pets. DoT is now being farily easily countered by dedicated Healers, but Manergy depleting gems make it hard to keep up the competition. New popular trend was discovered: Double casting Archer Hybrid, superior in farming speed to any other possible DPS builds. Raising popularity of DD forces Raiden essence prices to go up in matter of millions. Previously underused Legendary piercer Fang Spear of Conjuration gets all the attention. New system of Legendary Masters generation brought a complete end to Legendary Monopoly. Time cards cost over 1 million gold coins per piece.

2016s - Uber Legendary ERA. Archer-caster ERA. Raise of Healers. Average level Increases.
Most of the caped players have full legendary armor suit, more and more players now own up to Tier V Legendary weapons and pets, along with high tier legendary armors pieces, those that are close to max possible rank of Tier VIII (couple of Tier 8 Sleeves and t8 Shield exist by the time). DD-Archers along with a very few powerfull Bestmasters thrive in prosperity, shaping the economy of Nodiatis. DD-Archers are dominating boss-killing Top lists. By now many broad Legendary Crafters exist, as well as some people being able to self-craft specific Legendary weapon types. After a long while for the first time Non-caster DPS source won the 3v3 Arena bringing hope to non-caster DPS and opening a way to new combinations to compete in future PvP scene. Newly introduced superior Healer Gear made Supportive casters being even more serious opponents, being able to completely shut down Drain tactics. Average player level is now 86-87. Time cards cost around 1.7 millions per piece.

What will happen next???

Just for clarification, TC prices are closer to 1.6-1.7 rather than 1.8

Your early TC prices are way off, at least the way you word them. They were 5-20k for most of 2008, mid 2009 they were ~75k, and 2011 when LG armorss came out they were around 250k. DA saw them jump from ~500k to 1m in about 2 weeks, so you could move the 1 million TC price to when DA came out. Basically you're missing the word "thousands" in 2009 and 2011. Otherwise looks good for the most part.

Something about introduction of runes, clan wars (HoNoR vs PoWeR was the first), pilgrimages and the infamous Relic vs Seletchi duel. Heading out for the night, might search forums when I get back.

Don't forget to mention when lower lvls used to actually be fun to do arena with and had competitions toward other lower lvls. For example, back in 2011, maybe like Lvl 40, I used to arena with other lower lvls and we'd actually vs others and win. Unlike now a full team of Lvl 85s with no lgs wouldn't even make top 100.

Back in 2011 a full team of lvl 50s would have some serious competition and were actually able to defeat a pretty decent looking 85. Now even a full team of decent 85s wouldn't be able to beat an OP capped player solo.

To sum it up, back then, lower Lvl had a chance in pop.

also you'd have to ask others for the year but perhaps include the introduction of arena?

Atropos, don't go there man, but if you must, ask Flipy to contribute. He's the only reliable source now.
