/lv Step back into the golden era of Ragnarok Online with our meticulously recreated server based on the original eAthena from 2006, featuring Episode 11.3. We have painstakingly restored authentic content, including original monster spawns, mechanics, skill trees, skill functionality, maps, NPCs, and more. Using an original 2006 client, we offer a genuine retro experience without modern additions like battle mode or a mailing system. If you remember, you have just 12 pieces of F keys and Your only way to have a ''battle mode'' will be in Alt+M mode  /heh

To enhance the fun, we've set our rates to 100/100/50. Whether you're here to help us hunt down bugs or simply want to relive the classic 2006 atmosphere with friends, we invite you to join us on this nostalgic journey.

If you're interested in participating, please reach out to me on Discord at Haganen#0204. I'll be personally selecting trustworthy individuals to ensure the integrity of our community. Given the vulnerabilities of the old server and client, this project is exclusive and not publicly accessible. It's a haven for true old-timers looking to reconnect with the magic of 2006 Ragnarok Online.

Join us, and let's bring back the adventure and camaraderie of the past!

If there's no website, no discord server, and no RMS listing, could you please provide more information regarding your server in this thread such as the server's hosting location, how customized it is, what payment model/donations/funding it has if any, what the drop rates are (unless it's x50 for everything including MVP cards), whether multi-clienting is allowed, whether it's protected from botting, or allows botting, etc, etc?

Seems a bit sketchy to not at least have a website, and it's a shame it's not a publicly listed server because, as an oldschool player, I'd still trade the old janky client for more publicity so the server actually has a decent population of players to play with.
Most players don't want a dead server with no publicity, and who wants to play without battle mode? You can have an oldschool server, with oldschool mechanics, with an old client that has battle mode and other quality of life features.

If the intent is to simply provide a historical server for players to see what RO was like in the past, then I understand.
Kudos for putting in the effort to preserve and present that I guess. Just don't expect a decent population, and don't forget that part of RO's history in that period was the experience of playing with hundreds of concurrent players.
Single-client servers encourage player interaction, discourage soulless min-maxing, and properly allow support characters to find partners and parties.
Dual-client and multi-client servers are a sin against Odin.

Hello distilled1,

i changed my old discord to this Ragnarok purposes because lot of people writing me messages. Discord server

  • Server hosting is located in Germany
  • No customization. Its is original eathena from 2006 with old client
  • No payment, no donation, nothing. It is just for fun and oldtimers and friends.
  • Drop rates are 50 and mvp card 10, but this is setup for fun mode. We will change it when we will go public.
  • I dont know when we will go public and if we go. For now, it is just for pure nostalgia. Oldtimers gathering without toxic vibe and just playing together and have a fun on discord
  • We found that Battle mode was implemented in Yuno patch. So it is in the game, but you need to remember your keys and skill because you will see just one row of F keys  /heh

Just because you are using old client & eathena, doesn't mean it's "oldtimers" or nostalgic gimmick.
Among other things, your "strong" point is just ALT+M ?????  /...

I hate ppl advertise their fake for gimmick. Example:
- "we are classic server using old client episode 3" but their mob database is episode 13. (https://forum.ratemyserver.net/server-discussion/classic-and-pre-renewal-close-to-official-servers-not-so-official-after-all/)
- "we are revoclassic server just like ROEXE" but their server has renewal but stricted until job 2.

/heh

I speak for myself, but I think that most players will not be able to catch the difference between "original" and "non-original" "eAthena from 2006", Just by gameplay.

But I can say for sure that the "100/100/50" ratings can in no way be associated with "Golden era of Ragnarok. Oldtimes of Ragnarok"
Associations with the very distant past are only a pain x1.
You will find it very difficult to position yourself with such ratings as "a Real journey into the past of Ragnarok"

This looks like a cool project, i miss the old character creation screen and the small inventory window. As OldPoring said, there really isn't that much difference between more up to date emulators and a dug-up 2006 eAthena emulator aside of UI and lack of features (Mail, etc), and I hope so too that you'll find a balanced out solution to what rates to start with because true oldtime is about 1x and single client, which is pure torture for us adults. Good luck, I hope everything works out /ok
