Private servers without Social Gates community dont last?

Hello, as old school Xian player, iv played since cap 60 thro out cap 70 and cap 80+ and hand grinded all the way to about lvl 83 when iv quitted Xian, and if theres one thing that sticked with me, is the sense of community when people are done doing what they need to do (prior to bots, and also at the early days of bots) They used to go directly to Downhang or Jangan south/west gates and started socializing, cape fight, jobs, pk, or just watch others do it. Back then when there were no bots, or during the early times when Bots used bot points and with isrobot for example you had limited bot hours per Purchase, so you only botted during your gold ticket 3 hours period, People looked forward to go out there after the goldtime ends and just start their social advanture.

Iv seen and met people who spent 8 hours just chilling at any of jangan or downhang gates, forgetting themselves in the game, on daily basis, for months if not years, This made me realize how some of the most successfull private servers iv been to, Ecsro, or some others, they all had active "gate community", hate, love, drama, friendships, whatever comes.
Now days, iv recently logged on to Isro official servers and gates are empty, global chat is silent, and there is a feel of a single player game with npc's who act like players.

What do you think? do you have any experience from that "social gates" period of time during Silkroad golden age? Do you think servers should focus on creating those social spots for the sake of its community? or you disagree entirely? share whatever.

No point in creating a community if the server doesn't last more than a year.

It’s a good idea and I sure would love to have that sense of socialism back - but everyone who used to play Silkroad will be 8+ years older than they once were, and have probably moved on.

I remember the good old times, where ye.. you could've just chilled for hours in the game without losing anything but make friends and connections.

Nowadays it's not possible though since the community has evolved to what it is now..

Silkroad is not rly enjoyable like it was before. You cant just stay at gates and chill, there is no time for that. Silkroad is like a job right now. Alot of useless competition, alot of passed days farming, alot of days with less sleep, alot of trading and etc. You can do so many things right now but you cant do the main thing games are made for. You cant relax, you cant just take a rest to explore that 13 years old masterpiece, you cant just fcking sit down at JG south and talk with some1, because you dont have a good set and everything is a competition. So you just go to farm untill you are rdy to finally sit down at gates and showoff. Almost forgot to mention the last parameter of this hard exercise: you have a timer with no more than 1.5 months left. (The usual lasting time of newly created server). One last thing: please dont judge me for my poor english

I remember those times, but it's nearly impossible to bring that back again, seeing what the community has evolved to. Everyone was friendly back then, I made a lot of friendships with people who I could meet in real life later on and I’m still in touch with most of them. Now, the community is so toxic and everyone is claiming to be the best, competition is good and everything, however; don’t let it become a negative thing, the current sense of competition is all about being toxic and about whoever knows more racial and religious slurs, it’s about whoever has a better English and about who has more money. Nobody is considerate anymore, they just want to troll and show their off-charts toxicity levels and think that’s the ladder to becoming a respected person nowadays.
