Server Discussion / Re: The Pre-Paid Hands-Off Server
« Last post by Blinzer on Feb 14, 2018, 03:50 AM »
Interesting thought and probably worthy of a discussion all on it's own as some people are very strongly against having all castles open (for lack of competition) while others think having all castles open is more fun for reasons you described.

Server hopping sucks and for me personally, a reason why I've stopped joining any pservers at all. I don't care what the admin promises or how impressive the server may seem feature-wise, the second the population dips, the server closes. Now, I don't bother playing or recommending RO servers unless it's an official or has a proven track record of longevity like OriginsRO, TalonRO, or NovaRO. That's why I suggested the idea just pre-paying a year for a host, setting up a stable sever, and giving players an obvious choice for a long-lasting server.

However, I wonder how well the "hands off" approach would work. It seems like most of the RO community now expects regular maintenance with all of their features and suggestions added ASAP. I know that's a frequent complaint about OriginsRO: they don't update much. Plus, running a pre-trans or pre-renewal server is inherently going to be lacking features so perhaps even with the guarantee of longevity, you still just end up with a server of a handful of players after a month or two anyway.

allow me to quote you something from my discord which came up in discussion recently:

In your opinion, what makes a server bad?

Blinzer - Yesterday at 3:02 AM

that's a very good question
i guess it's a simple answer, with a much more complicated explanation. no direction, bad staff, bad game.
direction is most simply explained by "it's not where it is now, but where it is headed". is there a target goal or objective that is being worked towards? can you visibly and tangibly see that it is heading towards that direction?
bad staff is the one we're all used to. people who abuse powers in-game, whether it be to help themselves or to damage others. people with special interests: greed, pride, selfishness. bad staff tend to also be people who have no direction or don't have the ability to follow through with their direction. you're a bad staff if you suck at what you do.
bad game is the final one. your game is bad if it's: unbalanced or unfair, cannot sustain itself in the long run, does not have a strong link between skillful play and strength in the game, does not have depth and a high ceiling to said skill, is not intuitive and fair, gives significant advantages from outside sources. i'm not saying there's anything wrong with a server just slapping vanilla ragnarok and running a solid, honest server about it; but ragnarok itself has numerous of these flaws in itself, so it drags down anyone who does that with it.
now, there's actually a secret fourth thing exists for an MMO that doesn't necessarily count for a developer, but does for players: popularity. a server can be bad in the eyes of players if there's not many people who play on it, because a lot of the appeal of playing an MMO is having the people to interact with and enjoying the game alongside others. if there's nobody playing a game, a lot of people tend to not play that game because they want to be part of something that everyone is doing. likewise, a server with a high population will tend to attract players because people reverse engineer a "if a lot of people are playing on it, it must be good" mentality. these are flawed ways of thinking that lead to this behavior, but they exist regardless.

noako - Yesterday at 3:38 AM

yeah, it's a bit disheartening to play on a small servers with so little options with vendors etc

Blinzer - Yesterday at 3:42 AM

despite shining moon having a lot of rock solid stuff that i approve of, they have very few players
less than 20
that, in my opinion, is a testament that the community of RO has been conditioned so hard to eat the exact same garbage for so long that they have become out of touch with what is actually possible in this game

longevity can be threatened by all four of these aspects, honestly. if you have no direction, you have no future. if you have bad staff, your bad staff is a permanent threat to the longevity for one reason or the other. if you have a bad game, nobody's going to want to play your game for very long. if you have nobody playing your game, you're technically not physically threatened by longevity, but at that point i put into question what you consider something to be alive in the first place.

i'd like to remind you that most players of ragnarok quit in 2008 and 2009 because it got old, boring and was an unbalanced broken game, so ragnarok already falls into the "bad game" category in its normal state. yet people are skeptical whenever they see anything that isn't just the standard game, and that tells me that the people left who play the game aren't very good at it(not good enough to quit) or knowledgeable(don't know enough to distinguish the good from the bad). in other words, a very LARGE portion of the reason this game doesn't ever go anywhere is because of the players, not the developers. for as long as you keep picking s*** servers and bringing it to yourself, you're going to keep eating dust.

High Rate / Moon Ragnarok Online [ The Untold Story ]
« Last post by bla4nk on Feb 13, 2018, 10:57 PM »

About 600 years ago, a war had risen in Midgard between humans and demons. Mage Knight, Thanatos came to a tower where demons were emerging into Midgard. He raced to the top of the tower as Surt, also known as Satan Morroc, emerged into Midgard and engaged him in battle. Both of them released immense powers and as their intense magic clashes, a certain surge of power resulted to a magic that caused them to teleport in Sograt Desert. There, their epic battle continued, the force of their battle splitting the heavens and the earth. Thanatos dealt the last blow that ended the epic duel and managed to defeat Surt and sealed him into the earth. After sealing Surt, Thanatos disappeared soon after and was never heard from again.

Thousand years later, an attempt was made to free Surt from his earthly prison. For about a year, children were sacrificed every full MOON at the Morocc castle. The Assassins Guild eventually caught on and thwarted the resurrection attempt. Little that they know, every sacrifice was received by an unknown entity residing on another realm.

Some time later, a second attempt to resurrect Surt was performed. It is eventually revealed that Thanatos' seal had weakened enough for Surt to break free prior to the rituals, although Surt was released, he wasn't complete, all because he had used most of his strength to break free and was unable to defeat the warriors that came to stop him. In desperation, he tears open a dimensional rift before being sealed again. Seeing the rift opened in front of them, the warriors were stuck in awe. A rush of abnormal entities flowed out of the rift and were scattered around Midgard. Moments later, a man came out of the dimensional rift and introduced himself as the "Moon Baron" and that he is from another realm. He proclaimed that an unknown dark energy was perceived by the "Moon Fairy" and made her corrupted, also affecting other supernatural monsters, spirits and demons from their realm and this will bring forth calamity and chaos in Midgard unless stopped. The "Moon Baron" offered help to the warriors, and made them take the journey to become members of their organization ruling over their wolrd de-facto and defeat the different monsters that set foot on Midgard!

Would a warrior like you join this epic campaign? If so, then ready your weapons! Shout your warcries! And see what stories might unfold in this untold legend in Midgard!

« Last post by Keng on Feb 13, 2018, 09:27 PM »
I'm gonna make it shortest as I can.

- Pros (Brightside):
* Ez leveling, pvm, high end raids when you have the right gears / chars
* The voting always reached its target even we know the last day need 5K++ vote, but the max when we can get when 2k online population only 4k votes. Now barely can reach 1.8k players. Reached target means high exp / job rate ~yay~
* The new GM keep coming, as they only be needed at the moment. Once not, we know the will be vanished. More slaves Gms more merrier
* New costumes keep coming as we'll ignore the dead BG / WoE / PVP
* Mostly defending post here either subGM / GM friends / GM wannabe. Strong bond huh!
* SQI / High End gears so strong you can pawn any mob with right gameplay

- Cons (Darkside):
* Many 'GMwanabe' either in game / discord (go try for yourself)
* Special treatment for GM's gf free OP gears /  close friends (They got earlier info about incoming patch, what nerf, what item to sell / to buy. You name it). They also can troll GM in @main without penalty: Camel etcetc (again, go try it for yourself)
* You & your accociate friends acc will get banned continuely once they dont like you for non realistic reason like videos contains "Hey you son of **" in woe video section.
* Dont even say "curry" in PVP as you'll get banned, IDK why
* Many more, I'll just list this

p/s: I'm not banned person I just post based on my experiences for almost a decade in Tro. Sad to see my mates leaving this server one after another while GM only cares about costumes. Big talk about beta BG / PVP / Woe  blabblabla

Peace o7

Hi! If you're willing to play with grinds, CianRO suits your match, but if you prefer to get it all within a day or two, this isn't your ideal server. Its less than a month old and so far everything's cool. c:

50/50/10x rates, renewal, 175/60 with max stats of 130 and the server's features are promising. :3

Long Lost Friends / Re: LegendRO.net (Clownphobia)
« Last post by Blinzer on Feb 13, 2018, 11:51 AM »
I don't believe so, doesn't ring a bell anyway.  I think I was guild-less back on LegendRO since I only really played it whenever WolfRO was down. (which admittedly, was fairly often lol)  It's been so long though that I can't honestly remember.  All I remember is that I played a bard.


wolf was my first server too, karekano was the dominating guild but i guess i was just bad at the game at the time because i eventually refought everyone who i thought was strong and slapped them around. story time boys

in the newer wolfRO(kefkai admin), raku was the leader of some guild, and his entire guild left him to go join some new guild and he basically had no members left and they planned to overthrow him and take over his kriemhild. i wasn't big on WoE because i thought it was a lot less indicative of skill than PvP, but the guy begged me to save his castle for him so it was my one and only appearance. it was 5 of us, against over 300 people. i took command. "dual client one gospel paladin at the top of staircase along with an 120 int bragi. get another player to dual client another bragi behind the railway where it can't be targeted. you'll walk back and get the bragi approximately every 10 seconds. we need a dedicated high priest to keep me buffed and lex aeterna people who aren't dying, but don't walk in range if it's not safe. one player needs to play whitesmith to keep overthrust on me at all times, lock anyone in place who makes it past the traps, and repair my weapon if it breaks. make one player frontline a champion to scout outside and asura strike any paladins that come in." at that point he says to me 'ok, i'll play high wizard for dps'.

:^) "no, you play professor. you have two jobs: dispel all paladins who come in, keep the entrance safety walled, fog the entrance and yourself along with a pneuma and web lock anyone who gets past the first cell, but dispelling the paladins is more important. use LP behind you so you can walk into it if AoE damage starts to hurt too much. now give me the incant."

on that day, the players of wolfRO learned that sniper is the strongest WoE 1.0 class in defense.
