I think it depends on what you mean as "balanced." Renewal monsters all seem to feel the same to level on imo. Aside from MvPs, every leveling area feels pretty much identical as you progress through the levels.

I think the pre-renewal monsters, for the most part, are more balanced. There are some outliers though that provide a ridiculously high EXP:HP ratio or happen to provide too much EXP due to how easy they are to kill. I think you'd be better off just adjusting some of the monsters in pre-renewal rather than trying to use the renewal monsters on a pre-renewal server if you want to retain that pre-renewal uniqueness with the perceived balance of renewal monsters.

what does "feel the same to level on" mean? aren't you talking about a completely different problem?

Server Discussion / Re: The Pre-Paid Hands-Off Server
« Last post by Insomnia2000 on Feb 13, 2018, 09:33 AM »
But here's the Readers Digest version, to add to what I think a long term server needs for success:
A FULL blown WoE...not just one or two castles.

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.

I like your idea.  And you've addressed the main reason why I played official for years, after getting introduced to RO on private servers; longevity.
And you've addressed the reason why I left official after several years; Cash Shop that gives an unbeatable advantage.

tl;dr (because I ranted)
Your idea nails why I server hop, don't play RO much anymore, and don't feel satisfied when I do play.
Longevity is key....
That and full scale WoE. ^_^

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.

yeah bro they are way more balanced you should add it to your server along with your disguiseer

relax, i was just asking out of pure curiosity

and what can i say, i've always been a big fan of the disguise event because it's a reflex and typing speed based game. is there something wrong with that? and why are spying on my requests in hercules?

I think ragnaroksea use this system. Only 1 admin manage this server. Very very dedicated one. In 3 moths, he manage to open very good revo classic server, with most accurate aspd calc for revo classic, all monster follow revo classic stat, rework matk to cater with revo classic, very nice event (chinese new year event with evil chaos dragon spawn every night right now).
97
Officially it is called as revo classic or restart. There is 1 or 2 revo classic that i know. One of it is ragnaroksea.com. Basically, the system use renewal mechanic for all, except for some thing like exp table, hp, exp monster still use classic. Flee/hit is adjusted to cater server with only 2nd job and no new world yet.

Long Lost Friends / Re: LegendRO.net (Clownphobia)
« Last post by Blinzer on Feb 13, 2018, 04:21 AM »
Wow, I remember LegendRO.  I would often play LegendRO whenever WolfRO (also hosted under Clownphobia at that time) was down back in 2005.  WolfRO and LegendRO were actually the very first private servers I played!

Sheesh.. I can't believe that was 12 years ago.

-X.

were you in lamerz?
