This showed up in my RMS homepage and for a split second I got very excited thinking someone had finally taken the time to expose everything that's wrong in how the main active GM "Kreuzbube" addresses the community and is overall the most irrational, biased, and aggressive GM I have ever seen in over 15 years of playing this game.

Origins has the potential to be one of the best (if not the best) Ragnarok low rate servers ever and it's sad and painful to see how the current administration lead by Kreuzbube is letting all that go to waste, not only by his extremely poor and biased judgement but also by the disrespectful and sometimes even aggressive way he communicates with its community. This server has had many great GMs in the past, maybe it's time to have some of them back and for Kreuzbube to take a step back and just focus on what he knows best: coding. He is obviously not capable of making rational and objective decisions, and he obviously doesn't have any skill in communicating with other human beings.

Quote
If you want to play on a server where Staff cares and frequently hunts down RMTers, cheaters and botters,
were people are punished for griefplay if they get reported,
try out Origins Online.
We welcome anyone that is willing to be part of a friendly and healthy community.

The first half of this quote by OriginsRO's official account is absolutely true and I can vouch for it, Origins is the most effective server I have ever played in terms of Bot/cheats/RMT hunting. The last part of this quote might have been true in the past, I joined Origins for this exact reason, it was a very friendly and very healthy community with staff members that cared about their players. Sadly, this part is no longer true, and any new player that joins the server would immediately notice that there's very little friendliness and a lot of toxicity when interacting with it's lead GM Kreuzbube.

There are A LOT of things to criticize about the current staff in OriginsRO, and honestly I hope someone eventually takes the time to document all those things and openly expose them here so that everyone that is considering joining the server gets a full picture of how things actually are and how the current staff addresses the community's discontent about a lot of different issues. None of those things are even remotely related to the nonsense typed in this post by it's original poster.

Rant and Rave / Re: OriginsRO.. a viciously anti-white server
« Last post by OriginsRO on Today at 11:00 am »
The screenshot that you see there doesn't contain characters that [GM] Kreuzbube has jailed.
It was shared, without being able to see the names of the players nor the chat, when [GM] Kreuzbube was surprised to see so many people in jail at once.
No damage was caused by this.

[GM] Kreuzbube would ban any cheater he'd encounter, as he has banned about 40 people in the last 3 days for RMT, Macroing or other cheats.
It's true that [GM] Kreuzbube plays pre-trans WoE on his legitimate account, although he has stopped doing so a few days ago.
[GM] Kreuzbube hasn't played trans-WoE for years, which is the most active WoE on Origins.
[GM] Kreuzbube has joined exactly 1 MVP-run in the last 30 days on his legitimate account.
None of the people that [GM] Kreuzbube chooses to hang out with in his free time are cheaters, and if they are, they will be caught eventually.

[GM] Kreuzbube has under no circumstances ever streamed or shared actual server code of Origins Online.
We're aware that he streams reverse-engineering sessions in relation to the official server software of Ragnarok,
this isn't part of the Origins code-base.

There was one case, where Kreuzbube accidentally opened a private messenger app, which showed some GM names.
Some identities were revealed of some staff members which were non-core developers that left the staff about half a year ago.
He's been instructed to be more cautious when streaming and to restrict the stream on one window preferably.

Any info he shares with his friends is in relation to personal projects or reverse-engineering efforts.
He frequently teases new changes on Origins Discord and #main chat, visible to everyone.

Kreuzbube and other GMs before banning anyone, will gather data on these people, depending on what is being investigated.
When banning someone, while that person is online, the person will be educated about their rights to appeal and our Terms of Service.
Any ban and related data is logged. That way we can have other colleagues review bans to ensure no false-positives are present when banning macro-users for example.

The screenshot at the end of your post just shows that we give people possibilities to reach the entire staff for questions, reports, suggestion etc via gitlab.
We educate people that are fishing for loopholes and greyzones that their account can be terminated at any time according to our Terms of Service.
There actually is even a section that specifically talks about loopholes.

Main reason why people spread rumours and accusations:
We frequently punish toxic people according to our Terms of Service if they show griefplay, offensive behavior, harassment or anything else covered by ToS.
Some people even have friends who got banned for cheating, rmting or botting.
When they can't face the truth, that they got caught, they write posts stating that we ban people without a reason, which is wrong.

If you want to play on a server where Staff cares and frequently hunts down RMTers, cheaters and botters,
were people are punished for griefplay if they get reported,
try out Origins Online.
We welcome anyone that is willing to be part of a friendly and healthy community.

Server Discussion / WoonRO first to bring Season Merge System
« Last post by Woon on Today at 09:04 am »

〉Hello everyone! /bo
My name is Nihad. If you don't know who I am, I am a game developer and active in the RO scene since before 2009. My first big project was WoonRO back then and while it hasn't been my only project up until now it's always been the one where my passion is. WoonRO had received a lot of good feedback and some of its features had been used by many other Ragnarok servers afterward. Unfortunately, I have never been able to make all of my players happy but I received a lot of nice messages and requests to open new servers. Running such a big project can be really stressful but seeing how, after all these years, there are still players who can enjoy my servers, takes away a lot of the stress and gives me excitement to try my best.
My main goal has always been to provide the Ragnarok community a stable and long-lasting server. Something they can return to and be sure their progress and hard work won't be lost.
After playing several big games, not related to Ragnarok, I believe I have found a way for this to happen while also pleasing those who seek new adventures every couple of months.
Let me introduce to you WoonRO's Season Merge System!
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

〉WoonRO Season 2

WoonRO Season 2 is a near-identical copy of the existing WoonRO server.
Seasons are an optional, recurring game mode that allows you the opportunity to start fresh every few months, leveling a character from scratch without previously earned items, levels, and zeny. A great positive of the season system is reliving the initial progression and seeing a character grow in great strides. Seasons are separate from each other, and it might seem intimidating that your character will have to start fresh. None of your efforts will be wasted, however, as all your endeavors within a season — characters, items, levels, donations, zeny, etc. — will be rolled over and merged with the non-seasonal WoonRO server once the season concludes. This system can be found in various popular big games such as Archeage or Diablo.

Season 2 is scheduled for revision after 6 months. The decision on what to do with Season 2 will be determined by how active the community is and/or a community vote. A server merge will require all servers to be taken down for a few days. Our intent is to preserve all character data so that effort is never lost. The next Season will launch after 6 months independently from what happens to the previous Season.  /no1
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

〉Ranking and Rewards System

Each month there will be a ranking system based on the points accumulated.
We will give real money or cash point rewards for the top 5 players and in-game rewards for the top ranked player for each eligible class.
There will also be a grand ranking system that will be set for 6 months after server launch date with cash rewards for the top 3 grand ranking players and the top ranked player of each eligible class. Eligible classes will be listed in game in the ranking system.

Getting points will be simple and for the most part automated.
  • Top 3 ranked PvP players will get points each time the PvP ranks are reset.
  • Top 3 ranked MvP players will get points each time the MvP ranks are reset.
  • You will be able to trade in BG badges for points.
  • You will be able to trade in BG cases for points.
  • Which ever guild owns a WoE castle, they can pick their WoE roster to get daily points as long as they continue to own the castle.
  • Winning KoE will also reward points.
  • You will be able to trade Zeny for points.
Other methods for accumulating points may be added in the future based on community feedback. Point quantity will be determined prior to server launch and the community was given a chance to give feedback.
It is important to point out that this is not the final system. There is still room for feedback and improvement as our launch date is still far away.
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

〉WoonRO Season 1

WoonRO Season 1, also known as the Main Server, will receive all the updates from season 2 at a slight delay.
This is to avoid having to do too many updates at once so that it is all manageable.
The updates provided to Season 1 will be identical to season 2 with the exception of some core changes made prior to launching Season 2.
However, we are more than willing to implement those changes in Season 1 if requested by the community.

Once the 6 month period expires for season 2 (after we determine the next step) the previously mentioned ranking system may be implemented in season 1 if there is a request for it and the finances support it.

Some of my players on the Main Server were worried that the server wouldn't be advertised anymore but I will make sure to advertise both main and seasonal servers because they're not really separate servers in the long run.
The whole system itself will be advertised which includes the main server as well. So hopefully the main server will get some new people over time.
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

Thank you for reading!

I am excited and curious to hear input from everyone.
I have been thinking about doing this project for a while as it has always hurt me deeply when the servers I made had to shut down and everyone's progress was lost in the end.
I believe that with this System I might be able to please both communities. Those who wish to find a stable server and those who wish to play on fresh servers.
Both servers will be advertised and ultimately neither of both communities ever has to fear that their hard work will be lost.  /no1


The full topic with server Information can be found in our Forum. I did not want to advertise with this topic but rather get input towards the Season Merge System.

Can you provide a date on which a person was banned for "when someone puts you in your place you go and log into your gm account"?

We'd check if there is any rogue GM then and remove him from our staff if that were the case.

The perfect way to contact all GMs, and especially the administrator is to open a gitlab issue via orginsro.org -> Community -> Support Requests.
These issues cannot be deleted and can be seen by either everyone OR only the GMs and the server admin, when marked as confidential.

if you wanna talk about rogue GMs, try checking the guy that shows off the people he's jailed in his guild discord, takes part in woe and mvp with known cheaters, streams server development to his friends and leaks GM info to them.



but it's probably him writing this post because all the other GMs left so I'm not holding my breath, lol

good suggestion to make a ticket too, i'm sure he'll get to it in 2 years time, if he doesn't ban you before then just because he feels like it

RO Graphic, Coding & Media / Re: [WOE GRF] Nerva.grf Public Release!
« Last post by jap099 on Today at 02:41 am »
Hello sir! Is there a GRF that hide or remove the skill text of SPP/PP above the character when used/spammed? We're thinking that when we remove/hide it, it will lessen fps drop during woe.

And the basis are? Gossips? Assumptions?

The GMs are already too busy to care about your bs.

Server Discussion / Re: Server Owners, how do you deal with this?
« Last post by Neffletics on Today at 02:16 am »
In our server, SolaceRO. When someone asks in a rude manner, we reply in the same tone (or sarcastically). Some people find it offensive, but the majority understands why we responded that way. (it's giving them the taste of their own medicine)

In most cases, these toxic players are demanding 'professionalism' and 'perfect customer service' from the GM Team but couldn't understand the fact that GMs are humans, too, and the some issues take time to resolve. Lastly, when they don't get what they want, they'll go to RMS to slander your server.

We used to care a lot about our RMS profile until we got tired of responding to one-sided reviews. It's usually after we ban a player for RMT, botting, 3rd party usage, etc.

My advice is just ignore them. Don't worry much about those who left; focus on those who stayed.

« Last post by Nyarlathotep on Yesterday at 10:43 pm »
The best way to deal with annoying toxic people is to ban them. Even if they aren't directly violating any rules, they lower the tone and drive people away through their unpleasentness.

Also, you get to drink their delicious tears when they whine about being banned, so double win!

Looks to me like you're getting GM attention because you're annoying. Most people don't want to talk about politics when they game, because they game to get away from that kind of serious stuff.

Server Seeking / Re: Looking for 99/70 Highrate Server
« Last post by Daifuku. on Yesterday at 12:25 pm »
hello there!
will just try my luck since there were no details for the rates.
woonro is opening a new seasonal server in a month roughly with 75x75x50x rates.
doesn't have ridiculous custom items with all stats +100. has lgp/ahk/autopot. and best part, you don't even need a buff priest because every town has auto-buff healers within 10x10 range  /no1
if you don't want to wait so long, the main server is open as well but the playerbase is really small (1-10) at the moment.
here is the main server website: http://woonromr.com/
and here is the discord server for both main and seasonal server (you can also just keep an eye on the seasonal updates and decide later on if it's worth a try for you)
