I wish they would shorten the pre-registration thing, a whole whooping 11 days to wait is not funny at all.

Oh come on. It's not THAT good >_>

 

Without the few RO paper dolls it'd be a generic strategy. There's barely any RO flavour there at all!

 

They just paid commissions to various Pixiv artists to use standalone shots of the job classes. So many conflicting art styles.

 

And the map UI. SO CLUNKY.

I don't really care about the art tbh, since it's a strategy game anyway, I guess it all depends on people's preference. And at least it'll give me a reason to keep my phone with me around.

Looks pretty good for a spinoff version of a 10 (11?) year old game. Not sure what expectations you were having. Definitely delivers more than I would have thought. How creative can you be with a RTS? lol

I was expecting more polish, as it's a major Release Candidate.

The Menus are barren and unresponsive, with text overflow in some areas, erroneous linebreaks in others, and a whole lot of blank space. There is little to no actual variation in sub-commander classes. Combat is rather boring. There are translation issues EVERYWHERE.

There need to be more tooltips, but at the same time, the sub-commander needs to have a delay on tip repetition due to how frequently the player is required to call menus.

On a positive note, the sprites are high-res and very attractive.

So will this be on just Android, or will there be an iWhatever version as well? If yes, what version of iOS will it be running on? Just curious since I've got a 3GS on eternal 1.4.2, so I might have to hijack my parent's iPad if this is available on the Apple AppStore.

What's the deal with the pre-registration event? If you don't play ROVU and won't be able to play Ash Vacuum, it doesn't really matter to sign up for, right? I mean, back when ROVU was launched, ppl that signed up early got Valky Randgris Hat on iRO Chaos. Or when RO2 was launched, those who signed up early got Costume Devoted Eyes on both, iRO Chaos and RO2.

There is a separate event that will be running for two weeks on RO 1 and 2 after launch that will give ingame rewards for getting to different levels in AV.

I would just sign up for it anyhow just in case something changes. I initially signed up for ROVU when they offered Valkyrie Merc scrolls (which were then changed to the Randgris Helm instead). So you never know for sure.

Does someone want to fix that spelling error? Ragnraok Online: Ash Vacuum I don't want to miss out on a prize because I signed for Ragnraok Online instead of Ragnarok Online.

I tried it, it wasn't for me. I didn't find much of an issue with it. seemed to work well. but as was pointed out. It's a generic format. and quite frankly, quite common. I *may* get more into it while I'm out (during a break while Coach Driving) I played a very similar game and got frustrated after so long because to advance in a particular scenario (I'm really trying not to advertise the other game, so sorry if it doesn't make sense) you had to make in-game purchases.

 

For those who enjoy these types of games, it'll be great. and kinda a link to RO. But I'm afraid, for me, it's not my thing.

 

The other one they released, Valk Uprising was a lot closer to RO and more my style of mobile gaming.

One thing I'd like to note. On Galaxy phones the "next" button positioned bottom right on dialogue calls is dangerously close to the "back" touch button. Only a few milimeters in fact.

 

Rapidly tapping next has yielded a lot of app close confirmations due to hitting the edge of the "back" button.

 

I suggest this be considered for revision.

Hello Oda, I was wondering, will this be available for at least iOS 1.4.2? I'm just wondering since that's the iOS my iPhone is running, and the highest it can get. If not, I'll probably have to kidnap my parent's iPad to play ROAV.   :heh:

If I register to RO Ash Vacuum (with my RO1 email) before its release, but I don't actually play. Do I still get something? Just like we did with RO2 and ROVU, as mentioned earlier. We got hats for just signing in.

I believe that the tie in stuff BEFORE LAUNCH is just for ROVU. 

 

By the by, the official launch date is next week: May 6th on both Android and IOS.
