In my opinion, nothing can save Classic because the people at Gravity that dreamed up the thing in the first place had a serious case of Rectal-Cranial syndrome.

I've beat this to death but I'm gonna beat it again because thats just the tool I really am - CLASSIC does not mean go JUST before Renewal and start from there. Classic means going back to the real OLD DAYS of RO and give us something like Pre-Juno stuff, and then work from there. Maybe then they could've repented for all the ass-hattery that the company puts us Beta days guys through back then - i.e. the Hocus-Pocus abuse and the "RO Easy mode" aka the MVP (especially LOD) Farming. But no, they screwed up AGAIN and now we're stuck with a dying server that probably could've been much more if they would've used 20% of those quivering piles of gray matter in their skulls.

For party's. What about give all party members full or slightly less exp per monster killed instead dividing by the party number in party plus slight bonus

As it is now why share if you get more soloing? But if all members in the party get the same full exp might see more party's

I prefer the non rebirth, since they announced the rebirth I stopped playing.

Assassin Cross with edp and soul link can 1 shot anybody!

If your a devo paladin you get 1 shot, if ur mvp gear loaded a thana infil is all it takes

If ur asprika user, not 2 but 1 megingjard is all it takes :o

Champions spamming asura

Theyll asura you with a freezing weapon and the next asura surely ur dead. If ur not full geared they dont even need to asura freeze, lvl 1 finger to freeze will do.


Those are the 2 game ender classes which are the most played classes anyway.

Monk is so much better , assassin too without edp but just SL.

I think this is a good idea. I support your idea.

I see the 11ppl leech Business and of course on every popular map (atm like hillwinds with 15m/h) its easy to get like 10ppl together. 150m/h for every partymember. sounds like a very good plan. But probably a 99/70 npc would be easier to implement.

I see. But I think boosts exp get from party is still a good idea, though not that much.

Here is what Gravity/Warpportal needs to do

1) Get their heads out of their behinds and stop acting like they know what the players wants. The consumer is ALWAYS right in the grand scheme of things.
1a) Unbind gear. No one wants it. We all know the real reason it was put in ( less tickets about lost gears, and more money from enriched since you can't buy hand-me-downs )
1b) Stop with these custom changes. I looked at the old maint. thread that Heim posted the "rebirth" requirements, and all I see is " like our changes or pay us more money ". I still get heated reading that thread to be honest.
1c) Release TKM's." We aren't sure if this is what we want for the server" Then you proceed to release a "cash shop" event with AL3 and +7 Dragon Hats. We, the players, are getting sick of being treated as dollar signs for your company.

2) Remove magic stones from being needed. Make a reward for using magic stones in job change ( ability to skip job change/extra items etc ). New players don't want to play your game and hit a wall a few days into it because you guys want the dollar from them.

3) Start cycling through bots.The main concern are people botting to lvl, and MVP bots ( Poring Island ). This would be the starting process to getting rid of bots on the server.

4) Put RO on Steam. It helped spike Rose's population , it can help spike ours as well.

5) Proceed to GRADUALLY ban the bots ( especially farm bots ).


Again, stop thinking of the $$$$ and start thinking of the players. The reason you guys ( report-ably ) are in the RED. is because you are all about " make money now, don't think to the future ".

A lot of people seem to want old school style turn ins. Item Turn ins / Kill turn ins.

WoE Times seem to be a big issue.

Rachel / Veins / Nameless / Endless Tower are a must.

Reversing the way gear binds. So that you may bind it if you choose but it is not that way originally.

AL3 / ID3 events are a double edged sword. Its awesome for a week, but it kills the gametime in between them. Love them, hate them.

BG event was great. Going on too long for my taste. BGs will be dead when it goes away, in fact it is dying. When the event goes away add new items to encourage continuous action.

Hesitant to suggest MvP summoners... but it does get small groups together. ET is a much better substitute.

Fixing WoE is up to the players really. They can complain all they want about how it should be but in the end its about not willing to step up and do what needs to be done.


Agree, I never got to try all of the Classic content when I was playing on Valkyrie, but the server was still popular; ban bots, add more content at a better pace, encourage party play with turn in events/bg events, fix mobby spawns, change WoE times seems to help a lot if all of those were tweaked.

I started classic when it opened. Went because it was said classic would stop bots in its tracks (It was one of the very first things brought up before the server opened). Saw bots not being stopped, saw threads about bots, and said nope. People were already 20-30s not long into it (It was suppose to be grindy). And I heard trans classes would be added and then thought, "How long until third classes and it merges with the regular server?"Now I hear it had Turn ins (Which it was never suppose to have) and all these max levels zzz. It started with cash shop headgears and things if I remember right too.

Just sounded like Valk rolled back some time until it caught back up with today to me back then. Sort of expect classic updated and merged into the main server by xmas or feb next year. Hearing about so many high levels as if it had eden, empty of player maps, bots. Classic server is competing with Pservers that can stop bots and get people leveling together on maps.

Few people like joining a new sever and see x-good items costs 99 million zenny and thanks to bots all low level to upper level monster drops have terrible value. Reason I quit valk for ygg was I got tired of seeing bot shops with x150 0.1 drop rate cards, every mvp killed, having to fight bots to level at pyramid, alligators, any map with items that still had some value.

Part of mmo's is the social aspect. With spam bots you can't be social in towns without filters and new players won't know about that (and even many regulars). If the people around you leveling up are bots, you get into thinking everyone is a bot or botted.

I didn't even mind ygg had less players by a lot, because most of them were actually human. Bot server = me not wanting to play.

Classic server, classic problems.

It may have lasted longer to release content much more slowly, including at first. If you were just opening Juno now for example. A harder leveling setup - some people were 99 in a couple of weeks. Or, turned it into a quest based leveling syste like RO2, with greater quest rewards, could have been a seperate avenue.

To fix right now I'm not sure.

If your kind of thinking is how the GMs think, there's no wonder classic was driven to the ground.

Slow content and slow leveling do not interest people. High risk leveling and having content that should already exist, without customizations is what interests people.

1) Is classic a true classic server now? (unbound gear, uncostumized maps with normal bios spawn areas, uncostumized transquest with magicstone requirement, job change stone requirement, update areas locked by thunsand trunks quests, airship quests, easy dragonlab like maps, etc)

 

2) Are bots really being taken care of now?

 

3) Are the other kind of cheaters being taken care of now?

 

If the answer is yus then please do announce and open a new classic server and it shall be successful!

1. Most of that is correct besides insta bios.

2. Bots are still there, but not nearly as bad as before. Boring/no action woes mean minimal supplies are used, so no need to bot. As soon as the server gets high population and woe isn't boring as -_-, then the bots will return.

Also there are still armies of spam bots. Not sure if you count this as "bots" or "spam" or just assume the will always be there.

3. People that are very well know for cheats (ndelay, auto pot, expoits) are still here. They claim that "there is no reason to cheat anymore". So basically, once there is an excuse for them to cheat, they will. Gms cracking down on ndelay and ap, no.

What I posted are the truths to your question. I still play Classic and enjoy it as much as I can. It currently "has potential".
