astra , pls promote this so we get the hype going outside of this community.
camp , pls post some more detailed info about where this lays between classic/renewal. as far as exp mechanics/rates, cast times, def numbers, card effects, mvp difficulty, ect. these things will have a lot to do with who decides to play it. well, out of our existing community. i'm sure this will draw in players if it's promoted at all.
ALSO astra, and camp. a breif history of the order of events ("this was added, and then classes had 2 options", blah blah blah. "after that it was discovered that the shwaltz republic" blah blah blah) not only would it be a good set up for whats to come. it would be a super cool history lesson for the community.
a youtube video promoting the new progression server should be produced and posted asap! there is a good deal of hype going around atm from other official openings. use those searches on youtube to your advantage! serch on youtube for channels that have done a review of iro, or play ragnarok. ask them to review the new server. ect. ect.
