Quote from: vohoangquan1996 on Feb 27, 2022, 10:46 PMIt sad to witness the downfall of such a giant. Personally, I really love how NovaRO polish their contents i have tried to comeback here and then but all I can do is do gramps .... There is no much to do unless you actually have group of friends / players that are willing to do all the instance to get gears. Heck they don't even have the revamped MVPs system, MVP just got one shot left and right. Also that system allows players to get them all cash shop
Quote from: Naruto on Feb 27, 2022, 11:38 PMlol i played on this one server that had 2 copies of all the maps and would randomly generate spawns and gear enchants
Quote from: thebowgal on Feb 27, 2022, 04:20 PMwhat is more recent is that pesky little thing called Blacksmith's Blessing (BSB). That could be a blessing and a way to get all players up to date to the newer stuff in the game. But guess what, they are locked behind the cash shop or the weeklies.
Quote from: Ariasqt on Mar 04, 2022, 04:36 AMYou raise some fair points. However, why would you discredit your own thread by making up some stuff? Last I checked BSBs were in no way obtainable through cash shop. The "only" p2w aspect the cash shop on novaRO has are the ores? Though I'll be honest, I haven't been very active in the past year.
Quote from: thebowgal on Feb 27, 2022, 04:20 PMSure, if you are going to specifics, their cash shop doesn't have exclusive gear or extremely op items, but that is because what you do is buy gatcha eggs (with the smallest chance in the world to actually get something worth it) or straight up buy the cash coupons and sell them to players.
Quote from: Fu Wind on Mar 06, 2022, 07:37 PMNovaRO has many flaws, but being P2W is definitively not one of those. First, there's a lot of relevant account-bound gear that is locked behind intense and hardcore grinding, so it's impossible to get it by paying. Examples of those are: PKS and it's respective enchants, all of the Shadow gears, and more recently: Costume stones.This is a flaw that over 90% of playerbase hates, because it forces you to farm specific content as slave (like it or not). But is also a reason why it's literally impossible to P2W in Nova. And second, there isn't anything you can get by Novashop that you cannot get by farming normally. Gold Coins from dailies can be converted into Nova Points, so you can literally get any cash shop item by logging in 1 hour/day. You can also just normally farm and buy Nova Point Vouchers to get everything from the Cash Shop.

Quote from: thebowgal on Feb 27, 2022, 04:20 PM-Costumes: Let's be real here a second, costumes have been keeping the game alive for a looong time. When a costume costs up to 900kk just because the cash shop egg it can drop from has a super low chance, it makes it ridiculous. It's not the same as having a super rare item because you managed to kill that sweet MVP and got lucky. This time, it means you swept you credit card and spent a LOT of money to eventually get it. And then maybe sell it for zenys. AKA P2W.
Quote from: Aloe on Mar 29, 2022, 07:40 AMThey have this $9.95 "30 day pack" subscription type package that gives you extra cash points per day for 30 days which can be p2w. They also just launched a server's store with expensive server-logo related merchandise.This just screams to "gotta maximize profits no matter what" at every opportunity to me. They are constantly thinking of ways to make money off their playerbase. Personally, I haven't heard of them donating to charity at least once either.
Quote from: thebowgal on Mar 29, 2022, 09:05 PMMerchandise with their server logo? This is crazy, it's not even an official server or an original game of their own... Why would anyone buy it is beyond me...
Quote from: thebowgal on Mar 29, 2022, 09:05 PMAt this point the guy is probably living with the server's money alone
Quote from: thebowgal on Mar 29, 2022, 09:05 PMI am glad I enjoyed the server when it was still decent. Probably never getting back to it again.
Quote from: [email protected] on Apr 26, 2022, 05:34 AMi play on 3 server NovaRO, ShiningMoon, KRO(i bought an account) i started to play on novaRO when munbalance was still WoEing with his 1shot eiraso iv been playing for quite a long time i did an experiment with my friend who doesnt mind throwing money on games (we both love RO)on all 3 servers we will make GXes and start from 0 i will play 2 months in advance for a total of 4months on a fresh account i can use any zenny i have (only the zenny) even zenny from an old account (if i have one) but will stick to f2pwhile he will start 2 months later but hes allowed to cashthe result wasNovaRO: even when i got a headstart of 2 months and 1b zenny given from my veteran account i couldn't catch up to him just because he can buy and sell coins that 1b headstart i have was gone just from buying 1 meta weapon (un upgraded) i cant even farm bsb my self unless i gear up a support which kinda takes away the beauty of RO (play the class you want) and it funneled my already low zenny on a class that i dont even want to play while farming geffenia by the end of 4 months i got 1 half assed support and 1 undergeared GX while he got an absolutely decked out GX minus the shadow gears because he cant buy them at the timeSMRO:with the 2 months head start i was able to get mid to almost high end gears and was able to comfortably get money for bsb while he did whale and got more money than me we were pretty much head to head by the end of 4 months we ended up with almost identical GX the only difference was his acquisition on the BiSshadow gear he got his full tempest and maxi mammoth in about 1 week while i got mine in 4 weeks and this is without making a support and only farming geffenia for a grand total of 60m kRO:in the 2 months headstart i easily got close to 3b and was able to buy items close to meta or is meta but just has an alternative and the biggest factor to this is they dont have the class change npc 99% the money i got came from the etc items that is 100% useless on pserver but in kRO they buy it by the thousands so every area that drops these are farming area by the end of 4 months we ended up with almost identical GXs exeption being the shadow gear and enhancements all in he ended up with more +14s while i settled with +12sour conclusion NovaRO is for the establised, wallet warrior (whale), no life geffenia grinder playersa quote from my whale friend on NovaROyeah this server is not pay 2 win its pay 2 win with extra steps to make it not look like it is not newbie or f2p friendly
Quote from: Lai on Apr 26, 2022, 08:55 AMThis is so interesting.I'm wondering, is it possible you do a test like this on Limit Ragnarok?The server is now a little over 1 year with kRO progression, we are about 2 updates away from 18.1
