Okay, this is also a surprise to me.  It does look like a promising server at one point and the population wasn't that bad.

I'll delist the server listing.  This is turning into a server discussion, I'll move this to there in this case.

In that case it would make sense as to why the server failed so fast.

the zeny inflation was at least in part to dracula farming in the private abra rooms- just kill his 15 minions over and over and wear as many +loot cards as you can.
also mi gao farming, and possibly selling bg rewards, like mastela or such.

it looks like Speak Softly/We Got Cookies guild is moving from Neu-RO to ROtaku. can't find anything better.
BoM seems like the only main candidate, but has no pvm life to speak of, not so nice rumors abound and resembles some other 3-month servers I've seen.

Metro has similar features like the battleground, conquest and rush but it doesn't by far have the same amount of players the other servers have.
And although the supplies are sellable they're worth nothing in the npc so no zeny inflation.
We're still working on adding more conquest features making it more legit

I have a 99% guess on who Kafra is (on RMS) and I was going to make a rant about how bad she is on being a forum admin. But nvm, too lazy to write walls of text just for her.

@ Thoth :
Selling BG stuffs for zenny is alternative for those who don't want to PvM for zenny. The one who made zenny worthless are AFKers or trash BG players that wants free badges for more zenny. Dracula minions? Familiar? How much can you get from 15 familiars anyway? And mob farming is never illegal unless the drop rate is nerfed (to be different than server rates).

As I said, those pinoy people are the ones who made zenny worthless. They camped MvP 24/7 and sell items for donation coins, which made zeny lost its meaning.

And I read somewhere on Neu forum saying things like, when you two become part of staffs, server are going to close within 2 weeks after your promotion. Seems like you two got some reputation in RO servers .__.

Not really, I personally have a fairly good reputation, but I've joined two server staffs in the past and left due to staff inactivity. A few weeks later, the servers both closed down. So, trolls from PumpkinRO started making up that rumor, and badgering Lysander about a mistake he made once.

Trolls will be trolls. Being a part of staffs you get used to it, so I guess it didn't phase me much.

Not to mention, it's easy to see from a mile away when a server is going to die, and we immediately noticed it after playing on NeuRO for about a week. The staff was nowhere to be found, and as far as we could tell, updates were minimal. Which was the primary reason NeuRO died aside from any obvious internal issues.

On a 3x drops rate I was making like 100 red bloods with 1 leib olmai card each 10 minutes using a Rofl on a Battle HP to kill dracula abusing that fact lol So imagine how would it be in there :>

I know I know, PumpkinRO's mistake will still be remembered as Top Ten Failure on WoE servers. This was either due to lack of GM Power management or somewhat, but still too funny and mood-breaking.

Tbh I don't even play Neu for like, even 12 hours. It's just as I could see after 15 mins of playing, this server won't last long and couldn't attract more players that made me quit and just lurk forum for some fun. On forum I can see how amusing people are sometimes, how stupidly ignorant and dumb the staffs were (yes, it's like the first time I saw the WoE people bow down to PvM rules), and how fail the community are outside the WoE people (paranoids and returds).

On the contrary, I know how Lysander was (at least) when he was a staff, but Aurora (Sarah <3), well I haven't see enough of you staff-ing. Could be interesting to see you two in action.

@ Triper : wow now that's what I should call perseverance ._. the one that broke the economy is badges obtained from no effort (afk or unproductive BG players) and sell them for supplies and zenny

Last part, what made Neu was somehow populated are just because there are no more decent English WoE server, so the WoE people (who are desperately need RO) just hop on somewhere that enabled SE WoE and BG. The other decent English servers that provided SE WoE and BG are mostly their old server and going back to previous server is somehow "taboo" for them. So yeah, that's my guess. If only there was a decent English WoE server like Ex-RO, Neu is just a totally normal Mid-rate PvM server.

Meh, guess that's what I have to say. WoE people are all quitting RO and the remaining players are oldschool players who's looking for friends :/

Pretty much. Most WoE servers have a lifespan of four-six months, tops, if even that, which is why most of the big, good WoE guilds have left the RO scene in general. Why would you want to join a server hoping it'll be a good one, and then have to find a new one in less than a few months? Then repeat. It definitely gets old.

Not to mention what Triper is saying. Owners who create primarily WoE-oriented servers tend to throw everything out of balance even though there are ways to create balanced WoE-oriented servers. Of course it doesn't help when you get the cry babies who whine and complain at even the slightest bit of work they have to do to be able to WoE well, which pressures owners even more in to de-balancing the server. Of course on PumpkinRO there were plenty of intelligent people that made WoE-related suggestions and actually presented why it should be changed and how it would positively impact WoE experience. They are few and far between now, though.

I dunno. It's pretty much just become a common thing where you see a recruitment thread for a WoE server and automatically think, "Rofl, good luck with that."

But, even non-WoE-oriented servers are dying now that were originally big. Of course there's always the argument of, "is RO dying?" I think it has diminished a bit, but there is still an abnormally large population of players lurking around on these said dying servers or four-months-before-it-dies-servers.

lol.. to openly discuss it in public, though >> LuminaRO players obviously have no shame (at least, those ones)

Besides, haven't seen the population rise there since the closure. It was at 600ish before, and it's still lacking around 150-200, so don't know what's to get all excited about.

Am just glad I didn't play at NeuRO as I had considered. As Aurora said, these servers tend to die fast because the majority of the players are lazy WoE trolls. Not only is that not my type of play to begin with, but there isn't even the social aspect for me :X so I ditched, and good for me, too!

If you really watched the forum (or really read all what I've said), the WoE players there were mostly "forced" to PvM for a long time to gear each of their members. Not like everything is ready in a BG shop in which you can get them by BGing like most WoE servers.

All I saw on the forum was people whining about making it easier to get already-easy stuff from BG :x all the PvM I saw was MVP, and that's normal for that kind of server.

As far as I saw, they were the same WoE elitists from other servers, like Pumpkin, etc. which were trashed in their trolldom, directly or indirectly. Social players like myself wouldn't touch those kinds of places, which is what drove me away from NeuRO to begin with.

Pretty much I was one of those whiners who asked to add stuffs on BG shop. For a forever alone player like me, getting those by myself is almost impossible D:

The elitists are the one who could bring hundred players to the server. Yes they're trolls (idk if I'm in or not QQ) but they're the one who made servers very populated. Without them, servers are just like remnants :c
And Neu wasn't really full of trolls. Some are not, but yeah, the nice people are mostly don't hop on the forum much, that's why.

Yeah :x I'm sure there were some nice people, but unfortunately, I'm a PvM-Social-Hat person XD and I love the aspect of PvP/WoE but I'm not so into it that I'd wake up at 6am to do it.

The staff seemed fine on NeuRO, though, and I don't believe ever seeing you, Kensei, at NeuRO? So I don't think you'd be part of the negative group!
