More Low/Mid rates
« on: Sep 04, 2017, 10:42 AM »
For Both:
  • Multi/Dual Clienting (of course you can enforce this to prevent being abused in bg/events)
  • Non-exclusive donations (of course, also not impossible quests)
  • Hopefully 3pp isn't allowed
  • Would be great if MVP cards are disabled in PVP/WOE/BG, most of the drama I see came from people having Assassin Cross cards, I'm not even sure of myself if those were legit or not.
  • Custom items are okay, but don't overdo it, maybe have a complete list of modified or custom items.
  • Customizations (skills/monsters/whatever) are fine, maybe to get away from the stupid bragi AD asura meteor storm thing.
  • Another customization I enjoyed was rebalancing of New World ++ episodes, monsters were scaled to fit in pre-re, so that anubis and the standard maps aren't the only option. If you're a server owner and also interested in modifying monster/stat drops, I may be willing to give out ideas.

As much as possible, try not to cater WoE guilds only(such as listening to their "suggestions" because they bring a lot of people, remember these are the people that hop from server to server, making the real potential players that love your server to leave when drastic changes come in from what they loved on your server. I've seen multiple server owners falling to this trap and it's just....sad.

Low Rates: For this part, I'm actually seeking for a LR with MR features
Base/Job/Drop: 1x - 20x

Must haves:
Free healer
Warper
Stat/Skill Reset
@autoloot


Optional: (nice to have but I don't really care)
@go
@storage
Preferred Active Population: 100+

Mid Rates:
Base/job/drops: 20x ++

Must haves:
Free healer
Warper
Stat Reset/Skill Reset
@autoloot
@go
@storage
Preferred Active Population: 50+

For Reference, some of the servers I played for a long time and enjoyed a lot:
RaijieRO (One of the best MR I played, it was nothing special, just a standard MR without @go/storage at x20 rates , but I had a lot of fun)
WoonRO (Raziel - Nihad)

Don't suggest:
TalonRO/HeRO

Currently playing on one of the official Classic Revo servers, but I'm getting tired of it now so if there's any plans of opening a LR/MR that would match most of what I want, feel free to suggest.

Hi there!

After reading your post, I'm confident that I could cater majority of those you mentioned above. I could not give you full details right now, but I'll give you a brief Introduction. I am planning to launch a "low" mid-rate server soon. Long story, i was about to "revive" my guild in official PHRO. However, after experiencing bad management and PHRO's organization, I knew I wouldn't want to waste my time (or any guild member's time) on that server. Instead, a lot had been pushing me to open a private server myself. After all, I had been offering RO Advertising services to a lot of pservers in the past that reached 400+ or 2500+ logged in players on the first week (depending on the Admin's budget to pay me).

I'm Parachute, leader of Chknfoot Guild (chknfoot.com, fb.com/chknfoot). Although I had been in RO Hiatus for about 2 years, my guild kept updating me with their gaming under the leadership of my co-leader Megame and our allied guild OPK. Needless to say, I had been exposed with 3PP's, server exploits and that "veteran" tactics/mindset. With that being said, I have a good understanding what really kills a server. Also, It's not that I do not listen to WOE Veteran guilds. In fact, my guild is a Veteran guild. There are things that I don't need to inquire the community as I have fixed decisions on my own. I also understand the huge gap between Veteran Players vs "Average" Players. I mean, I wouldn't want to launch a server if I end up not knowing what i wanna do in a 1-2 years timeline. Rest assured, we will try to be as balanced and fair as possible.

In any case, I will be honest, I'm just a newbie RO admin and developer in this industry, but I do hire people to do work for me. If you think my lack of experience turns you off, it's alright. That's pretty much the reason why there are a bunch of pservers around and you will decide which one caters your liking the most. If you wanna give my server a try, then I would appreciate that and I swear I wouldn't let you down.

AHK will be enabled, it's a huge risk if i disable AHK on my server. However, 1238767 different 3PPs would inevitably rise. Not to mention, if i enable AHK, it would be hard to defend against Pixel Bots. But fret not, due to my fixed decision, I will guarantee to have a good manual server moderation. I had been hiring 15-20 Police GM's to Patrol my server on a daily basis.

One of my biggest feature implemented is that; all of my staff team are paid and all of my regular players become my business partners. Meaning, all players has a chance to earn real cash by just playing on my server. I will be implementing an Affiliate Marketing system in my server. (Advice: Whenever you recruit other players to join my server, you have to give them your "affiliate link") When you recruit others to come play in my server and you gave them your affiliate link to register my website, you become the Affiliate (Parent) while your recruit becomes the Referral (Child). For short, whenever your "child" donates to the server, you as a player gets 5-20% commissions. For as long as the server is still alive, for as long as your recruits still play on the server and actually donates, you will keep earning commissions even if you already quit my server. It then becomes a lifetime commission. One of the reasons why people quit a pserver is due to boredom and it would really not benefit them to move forward in-real life. With this, i am hoping to prolong the longevity of the server.

My website and forum is not a "generic" ro pserver website, so you may need to stroll around for now. The game wont be launching anytime soon as I plan to give a proper organization within my staff team as if im preparing my guild's roster for War of Emperium.

Your words here really fits me and open my mind. Seems like ive been doin wrong. thx
sorry for no formality, but i got my server here: rAthena, ro episode 15.1, renewal, 50x 50x 10x
kage oboro, rebel awakening, and doram with advanced skill available.
Beta: 1 may 2017, Open: 1 july 2017, Central Europe Server, quite new server.
Website: http://www.valor-ro.com/
Forum: http://www.valor-ro.com/forum/

Multi/Dual Clienting (of course you can enforce this to prevent being abused in bg/events)
~ you can multi client here, and recently i apply restriction for bg
Non-exclusive donations (of course, also not impossible quests)
~ All donation via obtainable zeny, grinding, and quest, but cash are the fastest.
Hopefully 3pp isn't allowed
~ i dont really know this, but we allow AHK for some reason.
Would be great if MVP cards are disabled in PVP/WOE/BG, most of the drama I see came from people having Assassin Cross cards, I'm not even sure of myself if those were legit or not.
~ we enable MVP but its really hard to get, no increase rate (stay 0.01%), and monitored by player bcs its announced globaly.
Custom items are okay, but don't overdo it, maybe have a complete list of modified or custom items.
~ we do have custom items in "fair" level but not many.
Customizations (skills/monsters/whatever) are fine, maybe to get away from the stupid bragi AD asura meteor storm thing.
~ as much as possible we follow kro changes. and some changes if we think its too eazy.  /gg
Another customization I enjoyed was rebalancing of New World ++ episodes, monsters were scaled to fit in pre-re, so that anubis and the standard maps aren't the only option. If you're a server owner and also interested in modifying monster/stat drops, I may be willing to give out ideas.
~ we have some custom features like instance, hunter corps and alot mini games.

You can see all server info on our forum  /no1 take your time for quick read and feel free to have a visit if you interested.
currently we have 20-30 actually player with different play time, most player are on SEA timezone but we also have EU player and few western. we still growing. mentioned u from woon, we also got some woon player here. incase we are out of your list, hope you got server fits your needs   /ok

Greetings Gene! ♥
I was not sure if I should reply since a bunch of the things you requested didn't match to the upcoming server me and my team are creating.
However I saw you played on WoonRO with Nihad and Raziel as admins. Ragnaclan is a new project with Nihad being in the staff as developer. I'm not sure if you were around when Shourei was in the Staff back on Woon but he's in Ragnaclan as well. I've announced the project less than 24 hours ago on our old discord and facebook and we have over 80 people in the discord being super excited!

A small insight on the server setup:

Mechanic: Pre-Renewal
Base EXP: 30x
Job EXP: 30x
Quest EXP: 30x
Normal Item/Card/Equipment Drop Rate: 10x
MvP/Mini-boss Item/Equipment Drop Rate: 10x
MvP/Mini-boss Card Drop Rate: 1x
Max Base-Level: 99
Max Job-Level: 70
Max Stats: 99
Max ASPD: 190
Stun Immunity (Vit): 97
Party-Share Range: 20

Multie Client is allowed. Donations will be available without donating. We added a lot of renewal instances, adjusted to fit the pre-re gameplay.
You won't miss out on pvm content, like on WoonRO. Our discord is filled with old Woonies and I'm sure you'll find some old faces!

Thanks for your suggestions
@Parachute
Looking forward to your server, hope you can put out more specifications soon.

@Valor
I'd love to play but I've been avoiding renewal. I really hate renewal mechanics and I'm already getting tired of classic revo for the same reason, but thank you for suggesting.

@Daifuku
Looks interesting, I played on Elaria a bit on release but I was a little disappointed because it's the other way around of what I wanted(feels like MR with LR features with the restrictions?), also waiting for more specifications because

^ this is what I've been looking for, hopefully not just the instances but everything post new world in general.

A bit off-topic, did Raziel went on a hiatus? He was one of the few admins I know that was very active in helping newbies, listening to suggestions(heyy he implemented that custom quest I suggested) and nuking me

Raziel went on hiatus if I am correct, it's been a while since we last talked. I can ask Nihad though if he heard anything!
As for the Elawoon project it felt like a MR with LR features because that's what it was, a hybrid but people expected different. It won't be like that this time though  /no1
Which custom quest was it by the way?

Ah, it's not anything special. it was the pre-re version of the Dragon Set, Dragon Vest+Manteau.

Something involving Pantie[1] and undershirt[1] with several dragon parts from petite/abyss monsters.

Initially on the first Woon (before reloaded) I was laughed at and they(players) said that it was OP with only a 1 agi difference, but I tried again on reloaded and it was implemented anyway.

Ah I see, we implemented a custom quests for both items on the last server Nihad and I created. The quest will be shipped over to Ragnaclan as a lot players enjoyed that they could choose between our quest and the official one. I'd be happy if you'd join our discord, even if you don't end up playing on Ragnaclan.  /lv

@Gene
The server specs/features will be announced the moment i'll be posting it in advertisement section. The game features had been well-thought and it benefits both newbies and veteran players. Once our website will be released, you should be able to notice how we try to minimize the toxicity within our gaming community as a whole. As of now, the priority is still game/website development. Next is to recruit paid staff members, because I prefer not to launch or advertise the server before obtaining at least 15-25 staff members total. I want to give our player base a better management and organization in any pservers.

My server & website development has gone farther than this, just that the changelog has not been updated for the past few weeks.

Edit: re-check your changelog link.
