I remember seeing this a week or so ago and I didn't think anything of it. But I figured I would post my experience with this in an indirect kind of way.

I have a partnered Twitch account and Gravity DMCA'd me in the middle of me playing on Shining Moon and got me suspended for two days. And technically I know that streaming private servers is against Twitch's ToS, but I've been doing it since I've had my account (so like 7 years), but now it seems like Gravity is a bit more serious than we probably assumed about this.

So I would say to server owners, content creators, or streamers to be a bit more careful because Gravity seems to be a little quick on this now.

Not private servers directly, but a number of private server streamers were hit with copyright strikes by Gravity and had their channels suspended earlier today. So far it seems they might be taking this a bit more seriously than before. The question is - why now?

Indeed, they withdrew out of fear of what might happen though.

Not only suspended, but that butthurt WarpPortal employee went through their VODs and claimed a copyright strike on every P-Server Ragnarok VOD they had on there still, which means they surpassed all 3 strikes and got their Twitch Account instantly terminated FOREVER.

I'm more worried about stuff like Talon going down etc. From these postings NovaRO even had a frickin LLC! Who's dumb enough to do that?

Thanks for ruining it for the rest of us.

They need to focus their attention on what killed their official servers in the first place.. which are:

1. Easy to bot
2. No mechanism to ban computers, only accounts.
3. Pay to win
4. Rare GM interaction with players
5. Poor response to player suggestions
6. Inability to encrypt their sprites/files.


Yes. I played on official server around 3 months ago (somewhere in south east asia), only to find bots everywhere. I tried to ignore it and play for 1 week, but in the end i give up. Then i played TalonRO, with zero bot and cheat, for 3 almost 3 months. And now its gone. And i wont go back to that garbage called official server.  /an /an /an

So is this it? Is this the end of RO private servers after a decade of basically keeping the game afloat and relevant?

Even if its a Pay2Win or Play2Win Server. But seeing them go down still hurts. I just started playing again on a Renewal Pserver and I'm loving it. Even uploading vids of it on my channel. Hope it's not taken down.

RO might die because of this.

Agreed this is VERY scary no matter what your opinion on certain private servers is.

Unfortunately that doesnt seem to be up to the server owners

And I already noticed that Oath is delisted
