Ever since twRO gave publisher rights back to kRO, iRO and twRO both get their updates from kRO.

 

I just wanted to bring some things to the community attention and hopefully get some answers from the GM team

 

What twRO has that we don't:

Nightmare OGH - 1/31/2018 - https://ro.gnjoy.com...ew.aspx?id=1703

Mechanic Class Update - 4/27/2018 - https://ro.gnjoy.com...ew.aspx?id=1936

Party UI Update - 4/30/2018 - https://ro.gnjoy.com...ew.aspx?id=1937

Rune Stone Update - 7/3/2018 - https://ro.gnjoy.com...ew.aspx?id=2112

Vending Update - 7/9/2018 - https://ro.gnjoy.com...ew.aspx?id=2132

Pet Evolution and Pet Update - 7/9/2018 - https://ro.gnjoy.com...ew.aspx?id=2113

UI Update 2nd batch - 8/6/2018 - https://ro.gnjoy.com...ew.aspx?id=2208

Upgrading UI Update - 8/21/2018 - https://ro.gnjoy.com...ew.aspx?id=2255

Shadow Chaser Class Update - 9/3/2018 - https://ro.gnjoy.com...ew.aspx?id=2302

 

2nd Illusion Dungeon Update - 9/3/2018 - https://ro.gnjoy.com...ew.aspx?id=2301

They got the first illusion update 1 month ago, 8/6/2018. - https://ro.gnjoy.com...ew.aspx?id=2215

 

It seems that we are falling behind extremely far not even to kRO but to twRO. Which should be updating at the same speed as us or at least keeping at around the same pace.

I was not even aware that Nightmare OGH has been out on twRO for 7 month already and it seems like we still hear nothing about this on iRO.

 

I understand that we get our updates when kRO wants to give it to us but it seems a bit unreasonable that twRO is getting a lot more updates than iRO. (JK I know it's because twRO gives them way more money)

It would be nice if we can get some answers from the GM regarding this issue.

Need more pay to win stuff to encourage players to spend money. Isnt twRO a heavy P2W server? They spend more money than us. That seems to be their privileges. iRO is a free server, I’m happy with what we have to be honest.

Oh... oh my. You think iRO doesn't make a ton of money because it's free to play?

Subscription? It's not factoring in Kafra shop?

Make megingjard and the rest of god items to be craftable not only by guildmaster that owned a castle but for all players even the one that doesn't have a guild and simply make the ingredients or final item drop from OCP box with pretty low chance :heh:

It doesn't make a lot of money because it keeps -_- with it's playerbase. There is now only a small fraction of players and even if 10 of them were absolute whales this still doesn't compare to thousands and thousands of players spending little bits.

 

iRO made it's choices with upper managements guidance to push cash shop which hurt things a lot. It then followed this with a few regional bans and lackluster content. We will never get the love and attention that a server like twRO gets because we are such a very very small piece of the pie.

Campitor said before that iRO update isn't dependent on the amount of money that they send to kRO? Or at least that was the claim, even though most of us know it is not the case. It would be nice to hear from him about this issue.

When a server reaches severely small populations, one of two things happen when it comes to kRO:

*Shut down the server
*Update the crap out of it and beg for people to come back

Which do you think is most likely for iRO?

Isn’t year 2017 the year when most last serious WoE people quit and many big guilds disbanded? Warned you so that WoE was important hahaha ... now kRO doesn’t seem to care to send PvM updates to us but again ... iRO is still better than all other official servers.

Tbh there were a lot of things I excluded from the list i.e. events that we never got, RWC (Taiwan had their own RTC), login prizes on their website, purchasing WPE/KP campaign.

 

But I knew they weren't going to happen even if mentioned. It would be nice to at least know about the ETA of Nightmare OGH considering twRO got it 7 month ago.

I strongly believe that there aren't any content updates because there simply is no incentive for them to do so. We saw that once regions were banned out, double crit was IMMEDIATELY released to appease the rest of the player base. This just means that they have a little more control to determine updates than they make themselves out to. They do at the very least, have SOME say in what comes to iRO. Think about it, if the playerbase is consistenty spending by just releasing OCPs, why would you go above and beyond to do more work where extra revenue is not guaranteed? It's simple human nature. If I were in their shoes, I would do the same thing.
