JourneyRO is over before it even begins.
« on: Sep 04, 2020, 01:12 pm »
There's a new low rate coming in seven days, called JourneyRO. They claim that you have never experienced Ragnarok Online like it was intended to until you play their server. This is a blatant lie. As you can read from their laughable excuse of an advertisement, all they care about is creating Ragnarok Online enjoyable their way rather than wanting it to be a community experience. In short, it's advertised to be non-corrupted due to donation-free aspect of the game but falls into being yet another private server with tons of words but with no actions to them.

The Admins, particulary Lord J and Savvyon, are two very rude people with their own biases of how the game should be played. You're only allowed to create Wizards and builds that factors Soul Linkers while everything else in the world of RO is - to quote- "bad". Everything related to STR-based classes are bad. Any kind of "inefficient gameplay" and "slightest misstep" is unwelcome. You're a bad player if you die once or are too slow for their liking. You are especially terrible if you spend money on consumables - even Blue Potions from ranked brewers. It's hilarious to me how they're against multiclient but abuses it for their own benefit and rages to a point where they themselves feel like servers should change them once they've achieved their goals through said feature. They heavily believe their ways are the only way and nobody else can ever be wrong because they know "math". They truly believe their servers will "change" the core of private servers when in reality it's going to ruin the immersion and freedom Pre-Renewal has to offer. Savvyon loves to contradict himself saying solo is the true way to go with Kaahi until he gets stuck using his own method of leveling and needs a party mate with him to carry his very inefficient grinding.


So tl;dr, JourneyRO already fails when the two admins writes a novel in DMs on Discord, enough to make people leave because of their text walled biases and kicks people for not going their way. As someone said, if you value inefficient grinding(by their standards) by all means try it out and get blasted by nonsensical commentary and advices sprung on you. Or how you do everything wrong and only they know how to TrULy gRInD RaGnAROk OnLINe. You shall know how imperfect you are is but god forbid you challenge them a little bit.

Giving a warning of bad practitioner among admins since this is a common thing among privates at this point. It's not their first time making a server, either.

There is only one admin. Myself. It is my server and I am the only staff member. The extent of Savyon's relationship with this project is that he plays an advisory role and helps with testing, along with other people. I have no interest in your guild drama or the personal relationship between you two. I've never been in any guild with him, I've never even played wizard or soul linker, I've never interacted with you before, and I've never started a server prior to this one.

Everyone is welcome at the journey. For those who are interested in learning more you may do so here.

First of all, that advertisement was made by me, and I have nothing to do with the staff of JourneyRO. I just made it because I'm a fan and excited for the server and what it has to offer.
Where in my advertisement post does it imply that Lord J doesn't want it to be a community experience?
Where have you ever heard that anywhere?
"oVeR bEfOrE iT eVeN bEgInS" cool assumption, bro. Is that why the discord has been growing and growing non-stop lately with many, many kind people who are enthusiastic to play?
Sounds like YOU'RE the one who wants it catered to you, and done your way, and since it wasn't you've come here to throw a fit.
You sound like a big baby.

This admin is opening a 1x1x1x server as oldschool as possible without a cash shop while only relying on advertisements and charity donations like it was in the past to keep the server running and you're hating on that? What's wrong with you?
I am not associated with NovaRO.

is this just a 1x vanilla server or has any development effort been added to make the game actually interesting?

And please don't bother trying to argue that killing 10,000 of a level 20 monster to make a 4 carded weapon is some kind of enlightening hardcore skill driven experience

Ragnarok Online is an old, Korean MMORPG, and the name of the game is grinding and socializing. That's the game. You put in time, and you get rewarded for it. You then get bragging rights for your time investment, you get to show off to your peers and feel proud of your achievements either through experience, or loot.
How would higher rates make it more interesting? Everyone would get to max level faster, and get all their gear faster, and then what? Everyone is the same and not impressed by anyone else?
Old MMORPGs like these were never about skills, but about planning ahead, your time investment, and socializing.

What is going to make this server more interesting than most others is how much players will actually socialize for once, because they will NEED to socialize for once.
This is how RO was meant to be played.
We were not meant to multi-client and solo all the way to max level by ourselves, and marry our own characters, and abuse everything. It's supposed to be a social game.
This server is going to be interesting for social people, and players who liked the game as it was in its pure, intended, oldschool form.

You can read the advertisement post I made here if you want to learn more about what makes it special:

Keep in mind that the name is being changed from JourneyRO to Ragnarok Travels.

Okay so you were never interested in this server to begin with, and just wanted to passive-aggressively attack it for no reason while completely disregarding what makes it special.
Best of luck to you with your pay to win servers, and with players who solo play, multi-clienting the entire time.

They heavily abuse multi-clienting as with everyone else who has at least played RO once in their lifetime, while saying down with multi-clienting on other servers, demands other server owners to take down multi-client, as they're using multi client, while they are against multi-client. So now they're opening their own server that features no multi-client. Because nobody else catered to them. Kiiiinda sends a mixed message!

LOL is that how you respond to people, mr. "I'm gonna snatch half of Nova/Talon/Origins/Ragna0's playerbase because we have the BEST idea in the world that hasn't been done a thousand times before!"?

You guys aren't even consistent with each other. Get real. You've done this whole solo but multi clienting a million times. What's there to disregard if it's true? You guys aren't special for having no duals. It's another generic server trying to act like it's peak gaming for being vanilla. It's a bunch of talk no action.

Best of luck 'cause y'all gonna drive away anyone who tries to join. You already did that on your Discord. Your continuous attitude towards a "hardcore ragnarok" only drives a dying game into dying faster.

Are you sure you're talking about the right server here, buddy?

It's not even released yet, and you're talking as if it has already opened and as if the "admins have been abusing multi-clienting". This is just flat out false and makes you look like an idiot, bruh.
There's only one admin.

May I ask who you mean by "they" exactly? What mixed message is being sent by the admin by releasing a server that functions the way he and many others want it to function?
To me and many others I know, it sends a message of excitement and relief because yeah we're finally getting a server that functions how we want it to. What's mixed about that? Do you have a problem with players being happy about a server catered to their wants?
Don't worry, bruh. This servers won't steal too many players from your server because there's a 99% chance the server you like has multi-clienting, and multi-client-loving players won't care for Ragnarok Travels where they'd have to socialize.

is that how you respond to people, mr. "I'm gonna snatch half of Nova/Talon/Origins/Ragna0's playerbase because we have the BEST idea in the world that hasn't been done a thousand times before!"?
Yeah actually. I like responding to passive-aggressive people passive-aggressively. I don't care if that particular person is turned off from playing on this server, because they weren't going to anyways, and I'd rather someone like them didn't play on the same server as me.

By the way, the only other server I know of that has banned multi-clienting is SolaceRO, which I respect a lot for them doing so, but myself and many others do not want to play there because of the donation rewards, making it inherently unfair.
More importantly, SolaceRO is not hosted in North America, making the ping bad for North American players like me and many others who would be happier playing on Ragnarok Travels.

Well anyway you go ahead and keep bumping this thread with your idiotic posts if you like. It helps advertise the server if nothing else. /heh

Why's that?

I don't remotely care for the idea of the server at all so I'm not invested, but I did find "Journey RO" to be a pretty communicative name.

To avoid conflict with Gravity's mobile game that uses "Journey". When I learned that it had closed down I was originally going to go ahead with the name (I do like the word), but it has come to my attention that the registration landing page is still up for some odd reason. This decision was made weeks ago.

nah the advertisement got me interested because it sounded like a new experience, not a rehashed filedump of a server with absolutely no features

literally anyone can create a 1x server. its the f*** default configuration. banning multiclienting doesn't do anything except make anyone who has played a video game in the last 10 years realize how flawed the original design of RO's pvm infrastructure is.

There's a very good reason private servers are more popular than officials and I promise you it's not just because of the cash shops.

Of course no RO server is going to be a completely "new experience". It's an old donkey MMO from the early 2000s. What are you on about?
This server never even advertised itself as being a "new experience". It says "most people have never experienced what makes Ragnarok Online truly great." which is true because most people have only played on servers that allow multi-clienting, which takes the social aspects out of the game.

You're simply dismissing this server's unique qualities, and you're super hung up on the 1x rates for some reason.
What's the matter with you, eh?
Is this server coming out going to hurt your pay-to-win server's income?
Can you not level without buffs from your own multi-cliented priest and/or bard?
Too scared to talk to strangers? heh... pathetic. Typical multi-clienter.

I'd like you to name ONE other server that has even just these three qualities:
-Hosted in North America
-Bans multi-clienting
-Has no cash shop, or rewards of any kind for players giving money to the server

Go ahead. I'll wait.

There are of course other qualities that make this server unique but you'd have to actually use half a brain cell and *GASP* read the website. Got a problem with reading too, mate?
