I've also recently started playing on SorinRO, joined a day after the release of OBT and I must say; I'm impressed so far as to which direction the server is headed. I will give you all some highlights of the things that are most likely looked after - Ones I believe any of us are looking for when searching for a place to stick around.
About the server - SorinRO is a Classic-based, Low-Rate server with plans of releasing many of its own custom features! We currently have access to things such as PK-mode - Yes, you can turn on PK mode on pretty much any map once you've reached Level 70+. Once in PK mode, you are able to attack other players who also have it activated. The server also features its own PVP ranking, in which if you end up in top 10 PKer you get a special aura! One additional thing to say; when you are Grinding while having your PK mode enabled, you receive 25% extra experience from kills.
MVPs - MVPs in SorinRO are somewhat more unique, their stats have been slightly modified in order to add more challenge when attempting to hunt them down hence increasing the drive to cooperate with Parties and Guildies!
One thing I should add is that MVP maps have been made into PVP maps - Yes, nobody can pop in the last second and kill steal your MVP, as you can obliterate them before hand, naturally you gain 25% increased experience when hunting monsters in those maps also!
- The Developers and Administrators are very active on both; Forums as well as Social Media
- The Developers are consistent and hard-at-work with their work on any bug-fixes & new content
- The community is great with their suggestions on the forums - and the Devs are actually listening to us and if the ideas are good enough and comply with Dev's initial promises to the community. They get to be worked on very fast!
- Exploiters are actually Punished! Yes, that means we can play in Toxic-free environment!
- Now about the community - The community in SorinRO is very friendly, helpful - AND still have the competitive drive!
- SorinRO also features daily quests and automated events - I won't go into that so you can test things out and see for yourself!
Lastly I would love to add the fact that the Administration is very transparent
! To be specific, they have thought up an idea to show an automated log, in player control panel on the website - of the commands used by all the GMs in the game!
To the point - GM corruption is a relatively serious; and in fact popular matter in many places. Well, in SorinRO we can see all the GMs actions hence we can rest well knowing the fact that our Admins are in fact trying their best to make Sorineans happy!
