Ragnarok Online vs. The World!

Click to Vote >> Direct Voting Link For Lazy People << Click to Vote

Brought to you by the community that keeps on giving. Now with CM approval!

 

Current Status: 

 

Ragnarok Online vs. Mabinogi

46/54

of 77478 (?)votes*

 

Voting has ended!

 

*I'm pretty sure these numbers are going to be less than accurate by Monday, as MMOBomb will be taking steps to remove scripted votes from the poll. To anyone who hasn't voted already, please do so. We may be able to keep the lead if at least a small portion of our current votes are legitimate.

 

Source

 

 

We will do a 2x exp event if we beat Mabinogi,

and if we win the finals there will be a 2x drops and 2x exp event. 

 

 

Schedule:
M 2/24: Warrior Division, Round 1
W 2/26: Cleric Division, Round 1
F 2/28: Rogue Division, Round 1
M 3/3: Wizard Division, Round 1

W 3/5: Warrior Division, Round 2
F 3/7: Cleric Division, Round 2
M 3/10: Rogue Division, Round 2
W 3/12: Wizard Division, Round 2

F 3/14: Warrior Division, Semi-Finals
M 3/17: Cleric Division, Semi-Finals
F 3/21: Rogue Division, Semi-Finals (RO vs. Mabinogi) Poll defaulted!
M 3/--: Wizard Division, Semi-Finals

F 3/--: Warrior & Cleric Divisions, Finals
M 3/--: Rogue & Wizard Divisions, Finals

F 4/--: Warrior vs. Cleric Division winners, Rogue vs. Wizard Division winners
M 4/--: The Final Match-up!

 

 

 

As you probably know if you've been following the comp, RO has beaten several big-name titles in order to reach the semi-finals of the Rogue Division. These 'big-names' are Dota2 and Everquest 2 for those interested.

 

 

Taking into consideration the fanbase of each and reflecting our own, we've either been overzealous in voting or straight up lucky to have gotten this far.

 

-OR-

 

Our community is stronger and more numerous than we realised. It's likely the dark-side of RO (the servers that shall not be named) have contributed to RO's success alongside our own efforts. That means, to whatever extent, they support official RO and want it to thrive.

 

But we need your help as well!

---------------------------------

 

The link to actually vote is hooked to the big-ass title at the top of this post. I'll update for each development that actually pertains to our standing; I could care less about the other games.

 

If you'd like to advertise this elsewhere, feel free to do so.

Have fun and let the better game win!

 

(The better game is RO and you know it  :p_angel:)

Not sure about RO's performance, but you lost as soon as you gave up.

Who knows?Do you have any idea how many private servers are out there voting for RO to succeed as well as us?The comments on that page are very interesting, especially the ones comparing RO to other MMOs. It seems to be quite a few people either defending RO flaws or giving RO praise.

Everyone knows that, even if all players (legit players) of iRO vote, it's not getting half of the votes mabinogi gets, but is nice to see someone trying to help the game grow and maybe make WP know that RO still matters outside of... well WP.

Oh pservers will vote for us? Then we might stand a chance.

Otherwise we won't because our total population including bots and all never exceeds 5k whereas mabinogi got like 9~11 thousand votes in the previous rounds.

We're the kooky old veteran that tells awesome stories and has enough scar tissue to work as a flak jacket.

 

Everyone has fond memories of RO due solely to the amount of time we've been live. We're still around and it's obvious SOMEONE still wants to hear the crazy stuff we have to say.

 

Plus, the more we watch the History Channel known colloquially as kRO, the more new and interesting crap we make up, and our stories get even better!

 

(although we occasionally get things mixed up and start rambling)

I will sit on my moving chair, my grandchildren sit in a line in front of me, and I will be like:

 

"It all started, when a Dead Branch cracked in Southern Prontera Gate..."

 

And one of them will be like.

 

"Grandpa, that never happened."

 

 

Well, you see. We've got so many fan stuff in all these years. Comics, illustrations, comics, and other stuff. I'm sure the fandom is still strong, and we will win. c:<

 

I remember the days when my best friends and I used to sit under a tree, brushed by the wind and kissed by the heat of the sun, making up our own RO story about travelling together through Midgard. Sweet memories.

THE BELL OF WAR HAS BEEN RUNG!

 

 

Btw, I also checked our playragnarok.com to see if there is some news about the competition. Disappointed ofc.

Cracking under the pressure.

 

Let's help them "Ragnarok Online", and wish them prosperity in their impending defeat.

If you care about winning this no-name competition, you're going to really have to step up against Mabinogi. Yes, Mabinogi is no way near as good as Ragnarok and Nexon is no way near as good as Gravity, but Nexon hosts a lot of MMOs which all have decent population sizes and there's no doubt in my mind that they will help each other out.

 

If you want to win you'll need to start preaching harder (try not to annoy people via preaching) and get the people you preach to to spread the word. Ask the other Warp Portal games. Though I'd be careful around the Dragon Saga people, they used to be run by Nexon. /gg

*Looks at previous results*

Really, Hawken got blown out of the water in round one? Dang!

 

If we win 'gainst Mabinogi it'll be interesting to see how we fair against Planetside 2 or Star Trek Online.

 

Whatever the case though, this is actually good for all F2P games, especially ones that rank higher without necessarily winning or becoming finalists, because we get to see a lot of games other people are passionate. Fun for all! So I'd say that Ragnarok's already a winner. I mean, I'm already surprised SWTOR was doing so well - maybe, similarly, some of their playerbase are looking back at RO and going "wow, those guys are still around? Cool!".

 

... Or maybe the h4rdc0re F2P community is actually just made of all the same people? :D

Either way, good stuff.

I've enlisted Zero to plug this on the iW Forum.

 

I was considering RMS, but it's likely that the whole thing will get flamed and beaten off the first page.

 

That said, if anyone has an account on RMS with a decent number of posts behind them, feel free to advertise the competition! There's no point in doing it myself as I'd have to create a fresh account, and my posts would have no standing in the community.

The fact that you know RMS is not surprising, yet it is still troubling. Those "people" are a plague, a scourge. There is no reason for their "business" now that Ragnarok is free to play.

Yeah, I just dropped the link into the chatbox on the forum page.
Lets hope it goes well.

I'm sorry to be kind of a downer but the odds are against us.  

 

Mabinogi had 6600 something votes from last competition while we only had 951 votes.

 

We need to convince friends and others to vote to even have a chance.

Yeah.. and I have no doubt the milletians are doing the same.

But we can try, no?
