I'm alright with you feeling that way.  8)

Anyway, actually on topic, proper Alfheim review good and bad? I'd been thinking about it for a long time.

The good

  • Server isn't stuck in the same content that most pre-re servers are.
  • Customized dungeons are fun
  • Renewal -> pre-renewal conversions are always great
  • There's so much to do compared to the average pre-re server.
  • QOL like item captor and warp points should be on every server
  • Supply farming is pretty streamlined and brewing too
  • 30 min inn buffs reduce the need for dual logging (as do buffed convertor durations etc)
  • Partying is valuable
  • I like costumes!
  • No real p2w methods
  • MVP instances without card drops enable everyone to get MVP loot. (except my hilarious bad luck with nyd?)

The bad
  • Options and some gear lead to some wild powercreep. Well not creep, jumps. But it's fun in its own way if you can do the same back. That means "standard" woe/pvp metas are different. I guess good or bad in this regard is subjective
  • BG modes suck.
  • There's no vanilla pvp room where you can use everything you want.
  • Leech for loot broke the need for newer players to be involved in parties and gain zeny. It's being fixed but the economy took a hit.
  • Population kinda low, but there are still parties most times of day.

The Ugly
  • The website looks like a teenage girl's bedroom. (sorry not sorry charlie)

Quote from: Xellie on Feb 13, 2024, 07:24 PMNothing to do with telling everyone to leave and posting lies all over RMS and driving people away then? Of course you're bored.

But just because you are bored, doesn't mean the server is dead. Bye bye!

you clearly have no idea who you are responding to, says a lot about who's living rent free in your head

Never played Altheim never will but this thread is epic. This is how you can tell the woe is good.

WoE last year was mediocre on most days. Sadly the sunday FE fights turned out more fun then SE.
Admin attempted to change SE into something more serious with cap and stuff but ended up half baked like so many things he touched including not having basics like a whitelist, sandwhich/interfere rules and punishments for the rats that were too incapable to join or form a guild for woe and strayed around.

Despite Loco, this 24bpm wannabe and others raise their voice here for a moment its mostly dead nonetheless.

People whine about a so-called "dead server" when P-Alf is hundreds strong at any given time of day and there are always parties recruiting to go to Odin, Niff, Byalan, etc. Episode 13 was implemented last week, too. I would suggest giving it a shot yourself or at least inquiring on the Discord, which is also very active with both players and staff.

It is dead. I already have like 4-6 characters. The social component is just dead and has no remedy. I moved to other servers, and the change of pace is amazing.  The best part of RO is the journey to 99, not reaching it, and Alfheim is not it. Good riddance to all the haters and good luck to those trying to keep the server running!

I don't know who you are, but I'm happy that I live rent free in your head.  /no1
