As you see lots of older companies like Jagex and Blizzard admitting they made some mistakes ignoring the players who are craving for the older game versions, due making new expansions or changes to the game drastically. They are making another older server like upcoming Classic WoW and Runscape 2007. Due this is was wondering if WarpPortal ever thought about making an iROSE server.

Lots of different private iROSE private servers are extremely populated, due the fact that those people don't want to play on an EVO server.

 

I was wondering how you guys feel about this? And if this even a possibility to do so?

Hey hi Thystro!  It's been ages. Nice to see you again.  Looking forward to catching up with you on Discord.  ^^

 

To be honest, I don't know how I feel about this suggestion.  If you had asked me this back in 2014, I would have said yes immediately to the idea of an iROSE server but now that I've been here for awhile, I really think I would get bored fast with classic ROSE.  The very things that seemed so weird to me when I first came back here are the exact things that make the game fun for me now.

 

At first, evo is definitely overwhelming and anyone who comes from a pserver or is returning after years feels lost and confused. But once you open your mind to change, you start to appreciate how evo has evolved and improved the basic game that we all love.  There are definitely a lot of small changes that will make you feel like a noob at first, but as you play day after day, the changes become natural and then you can't imagine it any other way.

 

I don't know if Warpportal has the ability or desire to make a classic ROSE server. They seem to be doing it with other games so maybe it's possible but the current ROSE team is very small so they would have to invest in getting more staff (which I can't see happening). If we had a classic server, I'd definitely give it a try but I wouldn't leave the current evo server because I really think the changes we have ( and the ones coming) are what makes this old game exciting and viable.

Hi HoneyBunz! We sure did.

 

Ofcourse you might feel this way, however the population on other servers conclude that there is definitely a huge amount of players interested in the iROSE servers. Lots of those people did try out EVO but it just didn't feel like "Home" to them like it did before.

 

That could be right and I also see lots of people who currently play the latest WoW expansion say the same, however it doesn't change the fact that people prefer the older version over the new one. Just a funny example the WoW private server community made several years ago: 

 

 

At the end of the day they did regret saying this and announced a few months ago they will release a classic wow server. (Hooray!)

 

I don't know either but it would be so cool to have a proper discussion about this. I could maybe even get signatures from people to show that there is definitely a big amount of players who is craving to play on an official iROSE server. You and I both know there is a big community still alive for iROSE only.

 

Thanks for the respond! ❤️

Don't mistake the population of such servers as a gauge for popularity of liking older systems but rather how unhappy people are at Warp Portal and their development over the past few years. There is a ton of people switching to "the big server" because they are unhappy with Warp Portal, not necessarily because they like the old IROSE system.

 

Ignoring that for a second, I agree with HoneyBun. An MMO needs a sustainable amount of players to survive, not a surge of old/veteran players returning for 1-3 months then leaving again. It wouldnt be financial viable for Warp Portal to put up this kind of server, given how very obviously financials already are and most definitely with the current team. 1 1/2 years and counting to fix some fairly simple things? Come on.

 

Given that you're upvoting your own post shows how desperate your suggestion is . . .

How come those people don't join an EVO server then? there are several other EVO private servers around with a decent population.  I think it for sure is necessarily because of the old iROSE system.

 

leaving in 1-3 months? I don't think you really invested heavily into the iROSE experience? Before you are max-ed out (Max lvl, Refind EQ, grade 7's and what not) you will have at least a year worth of time spend until the old/veteran players would even consider quitting. (Don't forget about T3, lvling another farmer and what not.)

 

Also I have no idea why you have to react so aggressive regarding a simple suggestion/question? I'am not sure how the financials are from the current ROSE. I was just wondering how other people might feel about this. 

 

The upvote stuff wen't kind of wrong since I logged into an older account on different pc. And I was like lol? Can I upvote my own stuff seems awkward. (Which it is now lol)

Yes , there are alot of oldschool players who'd love to play IROSE server again.There were couple of shots of making irose server after titan , sadly it failed mainly cause there isn't good team to stable the server , if you are good team prove it ! Cmon , players are waiting :P

This could be something to really revitalize ROSE Online, but it's also a lot of work and development for ROSE is not there right now for something like this as Genesis is the only Developer.

I'm all for it, but really we are dreaming I think, maybe a poll, or petition could help but that results in a locked thread, and Warp Portal removed the option for polled threads.
