Since this is a wish list.upgrade hardware or connections so that the lag is less. For example, I hate paying a 3rd party money just to reduce the lag enough just to be able to play iro.

 

Ding ding ding. I always forget to mention this. But it'd be really cool if you guys had your own tunneling service, you could bundle it with VIP or just give it free to players. It really is like playing a different game when you're using one.

This is one of the biggest things when people try to play iRO. They are immediately disgusted by the amount of lag. It is incredibly noticeable.

 

I almost feel like I'm forced to pay for lowerping if I want to WoE.

I've personally tried to get friends to play on this server. However, after logging in and playing for an hour or so they decided they couldn't take the lag. They never logged in again.

 

Can we get a response to this please? What would it take to get better servers?

Where are they playing from? Where does the lag happen, everywhere, or in the fields, dungeons or in PVP environments?

It's everywhere. I notice the ping difference really bad when switching from game to game and I was playing only a couple hours north in CA.

This has been reported quite a lot for over a year. You guys requested tracerts everytime for a while some months back and then nothing came of it. Least no major announcement about the cause / fixes.

Edit; I'd do one now but gotta wait until I'm back on home network.

Part of the problem Oda is that a lot of people are coming here from private servers, which tend to be smoother. To get a similar performance on iRO you've generally got to run your connection through another service (lowerping, wtfast, battleping etc). Which is why I suggested it would be cool if you guys could set something up directly and either offer it to everyone or bundle it with VIP.

 

There's a lot of people who are paying money to other companies just to play the game smoothly, you could either remove that cost to them or have them pay some of it to you instead.

 

I'm currently not paying/using any of them, so I cant make you some comparison videos, but it's noticeable.

Bring back optional "subscriptions" at whatever amount of money. Allow use of your own lowerping service along with vip for 30 days for like 15 bucks or something.

In all seriousness, this game is unplayable without use of programs like wtfast, lowerping and others. Why not run your own and make some money off of it? People are literally paying 3rd parties a subscription fee in order to play YOUR game. I do not need it or use it for any of the other games I play (d2/lol), only needed to slightly improve ragnarok online. Please show this or inform ever who handles the business aspects of wp.

Edited: smartphone makes dumb autocorrect. Not so smart anymore! Tip for Apple, please update to include auto grammar.

I paid for battleping everymonth (it's around 5 dollar for 30 days) and i'm glad to pay it to WP for this 3rd client. At least i can have sync 30 days period for my vip + battleping

Modifications to the party system. That other pserver made some changes (I'm not 100% sure what they were someone can probably list them) and made group parties much more attractive as you were not penalised so hard for bringing more players than you needed. Right now our only way to encourage party play is to do kill quests/turnins it'd be nice for them to be less of a focus for group parties.

hopes for client update:

 

-new instance dungeons

 

-gear/card updates (even if mobs/cards/gear is nerfed to a "classic lvl" new goals are exiting)

 

-new locations (new world? whatever has been released after?)

 

-costume gear (non-stated is fine, really. just being able to have new look is enough)

 

-mounts for all classes (havent played renewal but these look awesome)

 

-gunslingers 2nd class/ ninja 2nd class/ advanced super novice (unless for some reason they are too op for classic)

 

-quests for some kafra items ( i realize this may not be able happen based on needing server revenue but its a good idea to cater to the more time invested players )

 

-some ideas on getting players into guilds/helping smaller or newer guilds advance (lets face it, we all need more woe in our lives, lol) 

 

-not shure if its posible to do within a "classic" system, but if it is i'd like to see third jobs at some point. alternatively we could up the lvl cap as new content was added but stay at 2nd job reborn. with new gear/places/mobs this could be the progression many of the max lvl players and even some who have left the server are looking for

 

-another idea for breathing a bit more life into woe,  setting up one town of castles or a new map of woe castles for guilds with under a certain number of members. kind of a get ready for large woe kinda woe. this could encourage the smaller guilds to get involved as well as lower the active castle count for the more active guilds without just lowering the number of open castles per region. 

 

also well im talking about updates, have you wrote out a battleplan for updates to classic for q2 2015?

I am in Florida and I lag everywhere. It doesn't come in spikes. I can tell by simply moving my character within 5-10 seconds of logging in. There's nothing wrong with my connection. I've played on other servers without any problems at all.

 

Unfortunately the problem is not on my end, otherwise I would have fixed it by now. It's nothing new, however, it has prevented players from wanting to play here for a very long time. I feel like I'm forced to pay almost $10 a month for a service that lowers my lag on iRO. The difference is huge.

 

Myself and others cannot get our friends to play here because of this issue. I really do think an initiative needs to be set with trying to make the server more appealing to the crowd that's not been a part of iRO for a very long time now. The stability that iRO has to offer is very, very appealing. However, for many that doesn't matter if the server feels low quality and unplayable. iRO has a massive budget compared to private servers yet can't compete for some players due to something as mundane as lag.

 

I think if you guys made a couple changes and tried reaching out to these players you'd see the population well over 1k during off-peak times.

I've lived in other states and it's been the same for me.

The lag I'm talking about is response times between clicks and sometimes they don't register at all.

It'd actually be a really neat tool, I know a bunch of people who are quite annoyed by all the different announcements. Being able to filter out PVP/BG shouts or the repeated announcements encouraging you to buy the box from two months ago would be pretty great.

 

Some kind of hotkey saving method would be pretty awesome too.
