Oh well, facts then.
When Pservers started they offered more comfort as official.
Lately more lowrates going in the direction offering less comfort.
Therefore the topic starter is wondering if there are still new servers offering more comfort instead of less.
Yes, there are still such servers but not so much as in the past.

Exactly, I've actually found one low rate with almost everything me and my friends need, but it never opened on the release date and the admin isn't even replying or doing anything.

Since i'm so picky about choosing a server, all low rates servers i've played in had at least @go and @autoloot.
Including the one i'm playing currently.
Yea i feel like i'd be nicer if they had @storage too but i'm fine without it.
I agree mostly low rates relying on "classic nostalgic feeling etc" that isn't appealing to me but not for everyone.
Maybe it's the highest demand of low rates players, so no @go, no @storage or even no @autoloot became "features" of low rates.
So i guess players who seek those commands will automatically go into mid rate instead looking carefully in low rate server listing.
Which means low rates with those commands will be kinda lacking of active players.

Has there been any Low Rate servers that have tried doing things a bit differently compared to what we have now?

By differently, I meant server features. What I've noticed so far these newly opened low rate servers have been relying on that "nostalgic feel", it's kinda bad to have many of these similar low rates appearing, specially on facebook ads.

Back on being different.
Has there been any new low rates that have @autoloot? @storage? Might include @go in there as well, but I'm sure low rate fanatics won't like it.
Dual/Multi clienting is also a bit of a feature now.

I might have found a low rate server that has at least one of the three main features you would see on mid rates, but have failed to look for servers with both.

I've been to on RaijeRO before, it had 20x 20x 20x, which I consider a Low-rate still. It had many convenience features(including @go) except @storage, which worked perfectly fine for me. The server lasted fairly long averaging around 200-400 population. Not really sure why it suddenly died, but me and several other friends had fun on it, rather than playing on your usual "Missing this nostalgic feel?" servers, I mean sure we miss that, but not the hell moments on RO(lol that no autoloot card stuck on portal).

So yeah, wondering if there are any devs/admins there who had tried, but failed, what's the reason? Or, by any chance are they afraid of opening a server with these settings? Relying on Nostalgia for players? Or is there an actual server with these settings right now? (try not to advertise servers, mentioning server names are ok I believe)

autoloot and storage are commands that are used to milk money from players primarily, but realistically do not significantly impact gameplay as long as storage is disabled from WoE.

on my server i have both autoloot and storage available, and it never has been a problem and never will be. "different" is a very small word in ragnarok, as the standard to modification to the game itself is basically nothing. as you point out, even having autoloot on a low rate is taboo traditionally, but realistically that isn't even a factor in making a server different.

if you want "different", it exists in this world. i won't point you to it.

it is best to maintain the default version,because it is way balanced. but balancing ones server is up to you and to make it different kind of low rate must have unique features like gameplay in other games /no1

we actually have the same view of low rates. I like the idea of having not much @commands and using what RO npcs has to offer.
