QuoteTowards the end of the closed beta testing for the original Korean servers of RO (kRO), it was announced that the game will be released as a subscription-based game, much like many other MMORPGs in 2002. Some of the beta testers were upset and made numerous hacks on the RO servers. The hacks crippled the game so much so that Gravity Co. pretty much went bankrupt. In an effort to save the company, Samsung Electronics offered to buy them out. To watch over their new investment, Samsung appointed a manager to oversee development on RO. This manager wished to reshape the game into his own idea. This caused many of the original developers and the lead designer of the game to quit mid-development in rebellion. As such, many of the original concepts for RO were never fully implemented into the game. The game continues to suffer issues from the games troubled development.These problems continue to exist to this day, even after the implementation of the Renewal update.
Quote from: Kolby on Dec 08, 2020, 07:05 AMSo I've heard a short snippet about the story that files were leaked that formed the basis of the then RO emulator(eathena?) and there was another story that said if the files weren't leak then gravity would have gone the other way which could have been a better direction for the game I find it highly interesting imo it's just a fascinating story as I was too young back then to understand anything other than jellopy and killing porings in prontera filds.TLDR; if you have any info on some RO history please do share them thanks
