The record was set by helmchenRO, which is now euRO.

They had over 5000 players online.
I'm going to call BS.

A google search of "helmchen RO euRO" yields nothing related to a private RO server. There's not way, if what you say is true, that a server with a population of 5000 couldn't be found on google.

I think he means it used to be a private server, and was converted into the official euRO server. Not sure if it's true, just saying.
heRO is a great friendly, pre-renweal, unique and fun server with a great community, give it a try!

Funnily, euRO is only official server which is still somehow holding on to decency.

You can call it whatever you want.

From what it seems, he got tired of being a Game Master. Rather the head-admin...
From personal experience, I can relate to how tough it can be to see people critisize your hard work and dedication to maintaining a server such as that size. The pressure gets pilled on when insolent people flame you.

Now here is what I simply do not get:
Some servers communities have players that talk trashy about the admin, or dont thank them as much as they should for an amazing update.
Then you see some other servers who recieve too much credit then they deserve and get praised for things that really are silly.

Legacy had more of the first kind of community. I think the admin just got sick of it and hit the off button. Somewhat like what Euphorian did with the old EuphRO (oh dang, good times. Very good times) ... only ... I dont quite think that LegacyRO's admin was on drugs when he made the decision to do so...

I remember with my last server, the stress was almost to the point of un-bearable. 400 average players online, when i'd come out with something great and new, players said "Oh hey thanks. But is this it?" more or less, in kinder & darker words. Sometimes i'd barely even have people reply to the updated system information... I think this is how the community acted with LegacyRO, and finally, out of what? 1-2 years the admin got sick of it and just crashed it.
If its true he is making another LR, then you can see how much of a mistake it is to do. To server owners: Dont crash your servers because of this. It's just silly... If you dont find it fun, pass the server onto someone who wants it. Or, change the community around. Make the server a brighter place to be in.

(Side-Note for people who may wonder: I did not take my server down because of the stress. (Server name I will not release) went down due to my stupidity to trusting someone I knew since iRO beta to have server access and he messed things up so bad, it was not worth fixing.)

Yeah the pressure can be bad, and sometimes there are lots of ungrateful players, but there's also some nice and grateful ones too that make it worth putting up with the bad ones, anyway a community always comes with both, and an admin should always know what they get into when they start a server, once you open a server to the public you have a responsibility toward your players, it's really sad that their hard work gets trashed because the admin hasn't his heart into it anymore, but then he goes to open another server, so wtf?

Like Wyvern said, he could have passed the powers down to someone else. This makes me think of the thread that someone started about how a good server only needs 1 person, well no, see when you have only 1 person in charge things like this happen, while if you have 2+ the server can rely on the other if one of them quits.
heRO is a great friendly, pre-renweal, unique and fun server with a great community, give it a try!

Yeah, it's usually a good idea to have at least a couple close, trusted people around to help shore up the server.  And that way if you need to take a break (or quit) for any reason, you have trustworthy people to keep it going.  I know that's not always possible, but it's usually the better alternative to try to keep the server up and work hard to fix it (or find someone else to work hard to fix it).

Seemed to me Itakou was tired of all the hacking/cracking and the problems it caused (who wouldn't be?). Lots of work to recover from that... Enjoyed the server while it was up, although all the wipes were frustrating.

GlobeRO's site really looks like Itakou's job - simple theme based on one color, and more importantly, the Serious Business writing style.

Hell, maybe I'll join it myself? It's a lot of time left to Warhead...
