Quote from: kiryutokogami on Jun 03, 2021, 11:39 AMNow you see guys see here another reason why to avoid smRO toxic people like the person above exists lol While Im here providing an honest review and feedback on the server in hopes of lunar will do something about it. People like the poster above cant even be civilized about it and instead use crude and weak arguments that I already addressed on my review. Anyway the player count says the quality of the server in itself. Less than 30 people online 100+ if you count vendors. I tried leveling a character again and even leveling maps are quite empty now. Like 1-3 people at most. End game party still the same, just one party with the same people in it. Economy is pretty bad. Since the people left are veterans, nobody is doing the other instances anymore or they already geared enough to solo it. I dont know if the population is stable now though. But i keep hearing that its still bleeding players out.

Quote from: MewMieux on Jun 03, 2021, 02:35 PMI'm sorry, did I read this correctly? You donated FOUR HUNDRED US DOLLARS on a server you'd barely played in?? Y'know if I didn't know any better, I'd swear you were just salty over not being able to reach the very top just by doing a little "pay-to-win" action But, hey, let's assume good faith and say maybe you're just a very generous person who wanted to go in loving the server. Exactly which end-game content were you not able to reliably do after donating $400 USD? Because even if you made the mistake of donating all that money all at once off-event, you'd have gotten 2000 Cashshop Points for every dollar you donated, if not more. 100 Cash Shop Points (CP from here) can be exchanged for 1 Moon Coin (MC going forward), which generally sell for around 800,000 zenny on the market, often more. You can sell them for less if you're in a huge hurry, but that would be reckless at best at huge quantities. So even in this scenario, where you wanted to be able to play all content possible, which "end game" content was it that you weren't able to run with, hang on, let's do some math here:So $400 USD, assuming worst case scenario, at 1:2000, is 800,000 CP. Which is 8000 MC.MCs sell for 800,000z, but let's assume you sold them at a lower value because you were super duper eager. Let's assume you sold all of them for 750,000z.EVEN THEN, that's SIX BILLION ZENNY! 6,000,000,000!! And that's SUPER lowballing it. If you donated during a special event (1:4000) and sold your coins methodically at peak market times (MCs currently sell, reliably, for 877,000z, sometimes even 900,000z), you'd be looking at more like FOURTEEN Billion Zenny. What the hell content were you trying to access that fourteen billion zenny worth of gear was insufficient? Were you trying to run a melee-only supernovice or something?? End-game gear with good cards, even at its most expensive and in-demand, costs most like 2b at MOST if you bought everything using zenny. Fourteen billion zenny is significantly more than you'd ever need, even for cream-of-the-crop gear. You're either utterly indulgent or else terrible with your money. Or both. Guessing it might be both, given how we got here.Your accusations of corruption notably lack any evidence whatsoever. It's literally just wild, unfounded speculation on your part. MVP cards drop very rarely, and the cards that are most valuable are ones which cannot be reliably hunted. But other cards can be. Multiple instances can be run daily, and on the highest difficulty setting the drop rate doubles. This includes Central Lab, which has 3 MVPs spawn every single time, several of which drop highly useful and valuable cards. Obviously this takes time, but that's how you get these rare cards. You put in the time I've been playing RO since 2004, and I gotta say, Lunar is probably the least corrupt GM I've ever spoken with. He has whole systems in place to prevent GMs from abusing power, and has, consistently and reliably, immediately terminated any GM who overstepped. That you'd automatically assume his "Friends" are beneficiaries of cronyism on his part says more about you than anything else. That's sad. People worked hard and got lucky. I've only been playing here for a few months and I've gotten 4 MVP cards through luck and hard work, one of which was from an instance that sells for upwards of a billion zenny. That could happen to anyone. It could have happened to you. But it won't if you don't work for it. You can't buy an experience. The community in SMRO is pretty small right now (though no where near as small as you're saying. It's closer to 150~200 active players on Helheim rn), but people here are unusually kind and generous. They are extremely welcoming to new players, and most of those veterans you spoke of would doubtlessly happily run you through end-game content at the drop of a hat because they're all f*** bored, lmao. This has unilaterally been my experience. It's even overwhelmed me to tears at times (don't tell them I said that). But then, to get that, you'd need to talk to people. Communicate. Make friends. Put yourself out there. Show the content of your character. No one is going to grab your hand and do everything for you. No one's gonna Magic-Pixie-Dream-Girl your way through end-game content. Not even if you pay through the nose to reach it.I noticed you said you strive to have the best of the best. Not be the best of the best. I think that's apt. You wanted to have all this stuff handed to you, because you were willing to throw in real-world money into the game. You wanted special treatment because you had money to throw around. And you threw a tantrum when you didn't get it. Because for all your boom and bluster, you didn't even have enough money or smarts to buy your way to the top. It's a shame. If you'd stuck around, maybe we could have been friends. But you'd need to get off your high horse for that. And if you did, everyone would see just how small you are. God forbid.
