At the end of the day, people will just multiclient anyway and unless you ask for a livecam stream, you can't actually say.

Come on, tell me multiclienting doesn't inflate the playercount massively, that's it's just a dozen people having two clients open at any given time. I wanna see you spell out your disingenuous rat snake cope word-for-word.  /heh
Do you play there?

The actual goal is for people to have fun. This is the only thing that matters at the end of the day. Not everyone plays more than 1~2 hours a day. And as much as I hate the meta the server had when I played; there are more places and more builds to test around. Just like people despise Anubis and call it the only endgame while you have a whole game to play, just not as "optimal".

I don't know if [muilticlienting] matters, [so long as] people are having fun.

Pardon my Engrish.

In the end, the real multiclienting was always the friends we made along the way.

I'm glad it matters. Why would you want to play a game where no one is having fun? Might as well create your own server and keep yourself busy for months. :)

I just left this server. It felt extremely dead, and the communication was poor in terms of community involvement. Not only that, they blocked players from communicating until level 50, and thought this was the correct choice to prevent ONE spammer from spamming. It also has some entitled person who thinks what they do is unorthodox and they deserve respect for "helping" the server, yet, they allowed the mute till 50 to go on for months, not realizing how many people left simply because of it. I understand there was some p2w controversy, but there's far more to discuss in regards to the blatant ignorance that this server owner, and his community, is showing. It was the loneliest feeling that I have experienced on any server thus far, and this is coming from a person who runs away from friends online, to be alone.

Oh wow, that's sounds indeed pretty bad. Is that just being blocked from using the global channel or can't you chat with others at all?

Global channel. Regardless, new players were (most likely still are, but they mentioned it was changing apparently) shafted by something a staff member can easily remedy. I left the server twice, because I gave it another chance, but the lack of communication even after reaching level 50 was just too saddening.

Its a great server for people that aren`t just for the nostalgia trip and will leave in 1 month. There is an insane amount of content, giant new patch just dropped with another on the way. Server is in a the same spot of 200-300 players(+900 mercs) and would be great if it grew again.

I don`t even know what to say if you feel locked from the server because you cant speak on main before 50. Why do you even want to speak on main? And even a new player would reach 50 after a full day of playing... I dont even understand the criticism.

It`s grindy, but there is so much content and with options its not hard for an experienced RO player to buy cheap mid rolled gears and do most of the content with weeks of play.

I guess it does feel dead, specially at some times of the day. But there is always at least 1 pub party recruiting at all times. When you get to know the people that make part of this small comunity you realize it is not so dead after all.

I hope more people give alfheim a chance!

To ask questions, to communicate, to laugh, to cry, to complain, to praise, to offer advice, to ask for advice, to bond, to understand the demographic, and most importantly, to feel like I'm not playing alone. If you can't understand this, then why are you even playing an mmo?

Clearly they did, the server had like 1000 log-ins (not autotraders) at one point I think?  /heh 
I do wonder what exactly caused the collapse of the server though, considering the amount of content it has to keep people engaged. Every time I ask people who played there it's just something along the lines of "Charlie is a fkn retard, i want to stab him to death (in minecraft)" but no specifics. /hmm

This is probably in regards to spontaneous changes, which probably the vast majority didn't agree with, but as long as the few discord goers agree, everything is fine. I think it was just a lack of communication between the players (the actual players, not your favorite 3) and the staff. There's also really like one place to level efficiently, and you're locked into it until nameless/thor is available to you, but even then, the parties would be mild in those locations and people just leveled in kitty candy land. Unfortunately, that area was customized for geared players to abuse, so new players had no idea how to approach the dungeon, nor could they ask about it on main. (level 50 base to talk on main)

If you just read that, you can already see so many problems, just colliding into each other like bumper cars. It's strangely not a newbie friendly experience, at all. Sure, the game provides you with some gear, but once you're free, you hit a wall, and another one, and another one, until you just go back the way you came. Playing other servers. :D

Can't speak for everyone, but that's exactly the case for me and my group. We don't have any servers to play currently ever since Origins closed because we refuse to play on meme servers with shady, greedy or weird admins.

Awhile ago when people were exposing the corruption on TalonRO/Talon Tales, Charlie was one of the big supporters that tried really hard to defend and justify Talon's antics, while bashing the players exposing all the corrupt cases that happened on that server.

That to me/us showed he's not any different from the Seiren/Boreas/Talon and that they don't deserve any love or support from the community.

Hey Team, I was thinking about coming back to Alfheim, but I saw this thread and logged in to see even less people online :D When I left, Alfheim was the hip place to play at. Where's everybody playing now?  /hmm

It's still super fun to play! Old Glast Heim was just released recently, with maps intended for solo-players as well as ones intended for parties. Some of the map mechanics are hit or miss, but it was always the admin's intentions in order to try something different for RO gameplay. He seemed open enough to feedback (Discord threads for OGH feedback as well as general solo play feedback) and what people are looking for going forward.

Airship Assault content was also released alongside the bigger OGH area.

Whitesmiths also received a new quality-of-life quest skill called Cart Efficiency that lets you use a catalyst called Tempered Steel (made w/ 3 Iron + 3 Iron Ore at blacksmith guild) to remove the zeny cost of Cart Term for 10mins. It has honestly breathed new life into my main class because I can use my single damage skill without going poor all the time. It got super old farming Geffenia just to get enough zeny to use my class in other places I actually wanted to.

Nightmare Clock Tower is also a smaller update that is releasing soon and seems like it is going to be geared a bit more towards solo players.

Expanded rework is coming in the spring where most classes will get their soul link buffs inherently instead of requiring an alt soul linker. Soul Linker itself is getting a rebalance where linking someone will also tether you to them like Devotion and lets you use Ka- spells on your tether target without being linked yourself. They also retain the current way to use Ka- spells on players by getting the Soul Linker Spirit buff, but the tether mechanic allows you to do that without needing the link. More details will be released the closer it gets to the rework.
Expanded classes will also get a rebirth class just like the main classes. Kagerou/Oboro, Rebel, Hyper Novice, Soul Ascetic, and Sky Emperor will be their trans classes (rebalanced to be around the same power level as current trans classes).


If you want pre-renewal mechanics and rebalanced renewal content going forward, it's still a fun place to play. :)
