First there could be a vote on whether or not to nuke the existing Classic server. If a majority says yes then it would go ahead. I'm not entirely sure why but for some reason I get a good feeling about having Classic destroyed and rebuilt. It could be because I read too many comments on the forums or maybe because Ragnarok is in the name of the game? I don't know but if the voting majority wants to keep Classic as is then I would fully support that too. (the idea doesn't necessarily need to involve the destruction of the Classic server)

 

I think the launch of Ragnarok Journey could be a good chance for Classic to redefine itself. I heard about lots of grind in other mmo's could be seen as good. Is competitive grinding a thing in Ragnarok? During the time I spent here I sort of got the idea that maybe it was or maybe could be.

 

For this hypothetical Classic, what if it started with only the basic x1 rates and a basic, mostly cosmetic Kafra shop? Feedback and recent updates from the current Classic could also be included in this first phase level.

Next more things could be gradually added back but would be voted on first and need a majority to pass. (like Kafra shop additions, maybe a condensed version of the Treasure Cache system, if transcending should be allowed, Janeway modifications etc)

In all likelihood the server would probably stay in a semi basic state for a long time since new things would have to get past public scrutiny.

 

Since the base rate would be lower and there are less chances for boosts then there could be more events and spotlights to compensate. On a non event day, VIP would sit somewhere in the middle between the un-adjusted rates and event rates.

 

This is my pitch for an idea that I believe has a larger chance of turning out good than it is to fail. I can't say for certain if adding grind could turn out good because I had never played it when Ragnarok first came out.

 

Going to put 2 links with more details and further discussion:

The Kafra shop would not be gone forever. At the beginning it would start out simple but we could add on to it according to votes and what people want. Ideally there would be a way to have the treasure cache system stay around in some form or another since its still being fine tuned.

the problem is many people have spent real money on this server, unless they plan to give out all the kp used or refund the money, it would be unfair, I've known a few people who have prob spent over 1000$ on kp. they used that kp to buy their gears or work hard towards a +9 or even a +10 refine. and now that they have it you want to delete their real money efforts.

 

as for the other suggestions like janeway. that's how this server started, very few kafra items, no janeway. so in the end it would turn out the same. the issue with getting new players here is simple. this is a grindfest game with 2.5D graphics and your skills are what you got. other mmos offer 3d and unique mechanics. such as quick time events, different boss forms (like beelz) but with our current mechanics everyone just spams guillotine fist or abuse broken skills.

 

this game needs an overhaul, not a nuke. but theirs no point in overhauling it. I belive that's what renewal and ragnarok 2 were ment to be. I only play classic cuz I like its defence, m defence and flee mechanics better then renewals flawed system.

 

so in the end. I disagree with rebooting the server, especially nuking accounts and items.

That is a good point.

Ok how about this? If the nuke got enough votes to pass then the GMs could send a time limited notification to every account registered on Classic by email. After that there could be a period of time where players who spent WP energy on Classic could sign up to have the same amount of WP energy returned to their accounts.

Refund wouldn't be the right word, it would be more like a transfer.

 

Once that is done, each player would be free to re-use the WP energy on a different warp portal game or save them for the new Classic.
