They act on behalf of Gravity and they have all rights to do so. In the end our business is illegal, enough said.

So, D14, is this still doable or not? Can you give instructions on how to access this Asian playerbase?

It's doable if you're looking for that quick boost on your server's grand opening. I saw ads for 3 new low rate servers which are opening late June and early July while browsing on my phone. Judging by the comments on their page, they've tricked these people into thinking that they're the official Philippine RO server that's doing a CBT this month. If you're thinking long-term, this is not the right approach. Like DeePee said, it's very easy to request for a take down if you're a big company like Gravity and Electronics Extreme.

They act on behalf of Gravity and they have all rights to do so. In the end our business is illegal, enough said.

 /ok

I'm willing to bet that, as part of their agreement to distribute in Asia, they're allowed to do takedowns in the countries they're legally allowed to distribute in.

Warpportal owns the license in the US.
You can't take down competitors from a country where you aren't allowed to exploit said license. Unless as said, this isn't a license.

Im also concerned about these as much as everyone is.
My Group (Diverse Ragnarok) been taken down.
So now, im wondering, i've been trying to contact Gravity but when I call them, its Korean language and I couldnt even understand a word.
I'm actually planning to buy or at least franchise the license. Is that possible?
How much will that cost though? Anyone trying?

PS: Gravity now is getting even bigger. They enter mobile gaming too. And Stock at NASDAQ. That's pretty huge.
But put it this way. Here's my opinion. Why would they bother really small private server compare to all the success they have?
I think its not Gravity. Its the guy behind (or company) which trying to dominate the market and do this.

Reportedly Electronics Extreme paid 1 million USD for their license, covering quite a significant part of Asia. Unless you have at least $100,000 to spend, don't even bother.

As for DMCA claims, it's been mostly Electronics Extreme doing it but from the looks of it, Gravity itself is onto it as well.

Ragnarok Online is a dying game. It has been for a very long time. They are trying to re-launch a dying game in Asia. Any existing competition (private servers) are a nuisance to them. The less competition, the better.

Yes, ads regarding private servers are strictly monitored especially on facebook.
