Well, the year is almost coming to an end and it's time for us to celebrate our success or look back to keep improving ourselves.  It has been an incredible year for RO, more on the official side than on the private server side though.  Let see, Ragnarok Online official servers have been resurrected in Philippines, Malaysia and Singapore.  In additional to the Thailand official server that started a year ago, that means RO is serving in its most popular Asian countries again after a long pause.  Not to mention the RE:Start progressive server that got a lot of noise a while ago and the success of RO mobile in China and Taiwan, my friend who introduced RO to me is playing RO mobile right now!

To be honest I didn't expect RO to make a comeback like this  /no1.  The amount of players that returned to revisit the game has been overwhelming.  I have more than a few friends sent message to me saying they are playing RO again, those were players I met back in the days when I played on a private server in 2005~2006.

Surely, the initial nostalgia boom might not last in everybody but let's hope it will stay for a while and make RO great again.  As for the question that we have all been asked: "Is RO dead?".  It is not happening, don't worry about it. 

Have a Merry Christmas and Wonderful New Year.  /lv

@yC As you said, official servers just revived Ragnarok Online esp. in SEA Region. True, it's been more officials than pservers this year. Can't argue and can't beat their advertising budget or resources. The hype for official servers is still there, but it's inevitable that players would end up leaning towards pservers in the next couple of years (again). It has become a cycle due to the fact that players would want to join servers that's more "ideal" to their liking.

Rejoice RMS, i bet your daily/monthly page views has risen this year! Congrats!

To my co-pserver admins, just hang in there, RO players will inevitably go back to pservers again! :D

Happy Holidays to yall!

lots of us are approaching our 30s (or in them) and still playing this damn game.

i love this stupid cute little game, its so wonderful. even if the community may be infected by other gaming communities, it'll always hold a special place in my heart.

While officials have been making a big splash, it'd be a shame not to notice the efforts of the private server community as well!
rAthena has been doing great, quickly supporting the newer clients and having implemented Doram and Rebellion completely within the year of their release in the case of Doram.
There's definitely been renewed interest and it's great, their forums also semi-recently upgraded to IPS4 /ok
Here's to another great year of Ragnarok Online, private or official.
