Another one of those content stealing servers

Well, these guys aren't listed on RMS and they don't seem to be targetting any other countries than thailand.
However, I still don't like how they are doing things and thought I'd give you guys a heads up since they are probably stealing from other servers as well.

So far I've noticed that they stole: Our banner, which they changed the background and the buttons on,  our logo for when you take a screenshot and 2 of our loadingscreens (which was made by our players).

I don't really count the name and slogan.. But sure, I don't like how they took those either. <- That's the guys stealing from us. <- Their "main page" for early-ro. <- Our website.

I posted about it in their forum.. But I'm not sure if their server is dead or not, their "online" status says that their server is online. And they recently changed a little on their site.

I do not expect them to come here and answering this post.
I also do not expect them to delete the stolen content.
Like I said, this is more of a warning.


At first I was like "Whaaat?" but then I realized the situation.

Dumbest move I've EVER seen in my opinion :/


That's pretty lame. Why can't people come up with their own stuff? xD

Thats a question a lot of people ask.


Happened to me too. Someone created a server in portuguese also called LuminaRO using the same logo, being myself a brazilian too I got very offended. But it seems the server died right after.

I really dont know what's wrong with these people =/


Yeah.. They obviously aren't able to do thing themselves =/
Either way, I can't help but think that they are stealing the stuff they got in "GuildWar RO" as well.

Anyone recognizes the stuff they got here?


I just had a wonderful idea.
I should make i-RO.


I don't know whats wrong with these people either.

It bad enough they steal their entire game content from Gravity and emulator from eAthena. They also steal customs and other eA user's share work without contributing back to the community. But now there stealing websites contents too? Unforgivable.

Honestly, what is wrong with these people.

By the way, you should put a fake copyright notice on your website. Everyone does it.

"The school of the undefeated East!"
"The winds of the king!"
"Look! The East is burning red!"


Well, they changed the website now and are no longer using our banner.
Though I wouldn't be suprised if they are still using the other stuff like loadingscreens and screenshot logo.

(And they're still using the name..)

As for fake copyright, well I'm just the chief GM but I'll notify our admin about that.


People are just lacking creativity and work ethics these days. They don't put a lot of effort into something they want to bloom.

I think they changed their designs now? I don't see the similarities (or they're... not as discrete), so it's good for your server now ;).
Friends are special flowers that bloom from trust.

Free Designs by Me: Here!


I know this isn't really part of the report, but yeah. I'm not sure if the GM Team is doing this or a PLAYER. I can't get in touch with one of the GM's so I guess I'm posting it here.

GM & ADMINS of EARLYRO.COM & other RO servers, the IP Address of the person is in the screenshot, please be wary. Thank you!
