There are fragmentation in Ragnarok because there are too many games made for it. Too many wasted time and money in players side spent in different games. Also too many wasted time and money to develop and maintain different games.

 

There should only 1 game made for Ragnarok, that is Ragnarok 1.

(looks at Ragna 2, RBO, Ragna M Ragna Re:Start, Ragna DS)

To be fair, I do agree having a main RO experience. It's a shame it doesn't cater that much to International (remember Europe and Xellie... Still miss her)

Well they do whatever is profitable for them, if making multiple games will generate more revenue/profit, thats what they will do. Nothing wrong with that, just business.

I feel they should perform better in resource management though. Making games for sheer profit is understandable, but does quality have to be sacrificed in the process?

Even only in PC is very spread out in development lines :

Ragnarok Online Korea (Original)

Ragnarok Online International (Original + OCP)

Ragnarok Online Japan (Branch off)

Ragnarok Online Revo Classic/Restart (Renewal classic)

Ragnarok Zero (overhauled revo.classic)

 

My video was criticized that I didn't use Turn Undead and only stuck around Evil Druid/Wraith because a person who criticized knew only Revo Classic/Restart and didn't know Renewal at all  :heh:

That's one problem I can see when the game is too fragmented.

They should close down other Ragnarok games, and focus on Ragnarok 1 . Ragnarok 1 can be made much more lucrative if they put more resources on to it and develop the right content.

Pserv has only been a thing since like what, 2004? I remember my friend in high school said she tried one with player houses and I was done in 2004. So nope, not the pserv boogeyman, try again~

Sadly, pservers have far more community than the officials. Most of the people back in the day started playing on pservers because of the subscription barrier and the rates were more friendlier for the casual player. I've been playing this game for 11 years, 7 of those on pservers and the rest in iRO. The reason why started playing here was because I got it as a recommendation via steam since I was trying to play another similar game  at that time. Also, I was suprised that Ragnarok was f2p already. Another big reason was that since this is an official server, I knew that I could invest time and effort on the game, something that pservers doesn't have, consistency, since they don't survive many months because of the lack of resources to maintain its costs.

I don't know how good or active the marketing for iRO is , if there's any but, I talked with some friends some months ago about the officials and at that time, they didn't know that they still existed or even that they were f2p. Even random people on my youtube comments have been asking me what's the URL to play on iRO. I bet that there's a lot of people that wanted or wants to play on the officials but they really don't know about its existence.

Those Ragnarok games other than Ragnarok 1 does not worth playing because they do not deliver full Ragnarok experience, they deliver specific subset of it only.

To be fair, the mobile market is much bigger than the PC and console markets due to its accessibility. In some way, making all these mobile games is a method of advertising for RO as well. People playing Ragnarok mobile games might eventually get curious about the PC game and try it out. Games advertising for other games.
