What's Up Guys!

So, i've been off from iRO for a couple years now, 2 years, i was only on to check out the new instances and playing on the market, but i really didn't actually play the things i used to play such WoE/PvP or Pvm.

In that time a spend a couple Hours revisiting some RO WoE videos, and gosh, how i miss those times...

Everything was going great and flowing, but now it feels so empty, what happen to all that? and what happen to the economy? in my time 1b was worth something, now it can buy some jellopies, did Chaos become Venezuela or something like that?

Since my nostalgia came, i was wondering, do Warpportal have any plans to make a new server?

The reasons why i was wondering all that is: 

1- RE:START is merging, as we know RE:START wasn`t that great, some bug`s when it launched basically doomed it, people with 30k stuff on the first day, diving deep on the economy and on the PvM, basically made me stop playing that server.

2- Is impossible for me to play on this new Chaos economy, to make money you need to have money, if i go to PvM mode, i`ll never going to get the high tiers items im looking for.

3- WoE is pretty much dead, just check the videos from 2016-2017, the WoE was crowded, shrouded by fog, and now i can only see 2-3 Tag`s with 40 ppl playing.

4- Cash Shop, what can i say about it, it simply became a roulette, did EA bought WPP as well?

5- Private servers feels more attractive, it`s saddly that private servers nowdays get more players than official ones, maybe because of some conduts the Official ones have, such p2w projects, i know, i know, i play this game for over 13 years, RO was always a p2w game, but some private servers are having other ideias to keep their projects going on, such as only VIP or Costumes to cash shop, and they can get around 1000-3000 active players, which is not that bad for an unofficial server.

 

6- EuRO is coming in setember, europe is coming back, with p2w system, and i`m sure it wont stand forever with that project, the hate on those kind of lottering is too high right now.
 

7- WPP now have other RO servers such bRO, that has a gigantic community, probably the 2nd in the world, before the asians, off course.


So, What are the chances to a new iRO coming out, a 3rd one, not a revo-classic (like RE:START), a new one with good marketing, no p2w or roullete system on cash shop, and stopping on a good episode, like before 175 when things got way to easy? 

I know it`s hard for me to ask something to WPP, since you guys are stuck with gravity, but at least you have some indepedence or at least a contact with it. Gravity forgot about RO long time ago, for them it`s only the money that counts, but for us, the community, we deserve more than that, we love this game for more than a life, i play for more than half of my life, and its so sad to see the community been massacrated by ideias from the past, we really need a fresh start, a good server without knowing bug`s for over 10 years or some EA company.

Thanks for reading!

Do Warpportal have any plans to make a new server?

 

Yes! It's called WoE server which puts both Chaos and Thor together! ... Soon lol

 

Well ...

 

1- RE:START is merging, as we know RE:START wasn`t that great, some bug`s when it launched basically doomed it, people with 30k stuff on the first day, diving deep on the economy and on the PvM, basically made me stop playing that server.

     Revo-classic itself is a good server. WP is just bad at managing thing. Believe it or not, many Thai players are quitting trash SEA RoM and going back to Revo-classic server. Its on its 3rd anniversary now.

 

2- Is impossible for me to play on this new Chaos economy, to make money you need to have money, if i go to PvM mode, i`ll never going to get the high tiers items im looking for.

     Current Chaos is 100% PvM. You'll be fine playing here casually. No one cares if you can kill MvPs in 0.1 seconds as long as its just stupid AI. So ... dont need to rush for the best items in the game.

 

3- WoE is pretty much dead, just check the videos from 2016-2017, the WoE was crowded, shrouded by fog, and now i can only see 2-3 Tag`s with 40 ppl playing.

     Ahaha ... I say we put Gioia in next event to revitalize WoE.

 

4- Cash Shop, what can i say about it, it simply became a roulette, did EA bought WPP as well?

     Cash items are pretty cheap right now. Even a rare one is not rare and they go for less than 1b? If you just wanna have a good start, just spend few bucks. I think currently it is like 1k WPE ($10) is 900m? Trust me, iRO is a very very extra ez ez ez super ez cheap game to play.

 

5- Private servers feels more attractive, it`s saddly that private servers nowdays get more players than official ones, maybe because of some conduts the Official ones have, such p2w projects, i know, i know, i play this game for over 13 years, RO was always a p2w game, but some private servers are having other ideias to keep their projects going on, such as only VIP or Costumes to cash shop, and they can get around 1000-3000 active players, which is not that bad for an unofficial server.

     Yes Private servers seem to be doin better than iRO. I've a lot of iRO folks I know are now playing other private servers.

Ok..i'll talk about as one of the woe players of iRO thor. +Serval+ of Ravage Reborn/Spade. My guildmates and co-council members knows that i left woe..no..iro out of frustration..i even make videos of it mocking this stupid server directly. 

 

3.about the number 3. to be honest, i feel so drained on woe at iRO. i really dont know why but maybe because of the cash shop items they have set in. like every month. i need to change another set..then another one..then another then i eventually have no ways to earn money inside iRO because i'm getting more and more outdated which i ended up borrowing items from my guildmate. to be honest, i am ashamed for myself not able to keep up, like everyone in the guild was growing but me, no, i can't.  And the WOE environment changes to being one shot which i just honestly made me a little tired. i have a lot of unused clips in my computer but i didn't bother to edit it since it is all one shot. then around april. i just left the guild and the game entirely. of course i told them that i'm going to quit but they though it was a joke then boom..i know some of my guildmates where pissed off about that but i'm just very tired of the woe setting. another reason for me to quit is the lack of action for the autopotters, automasq and many more. i will choose to play with couple of idiots than couples of cheaters. 

 

4. i dont know why warpportal decided to use this stupid game design which is -_-ing lootbox to gain money. like i get it, the server needs money but not on this way, there's a lot of ways to do it and like there's one game who is one of the top grossing games in playstore that is not heavily p2w. a private server that i've been playing doesnt have that (even though their source of income is the ore but its fine since the game gives you ore sometimes xD) 

 

5. Yes. While writing this. i'm currently playing that private server. unlike here at iRO. i was able to grow faster than before and i manage to fund my warlock and my doram for woe and pvm purposes. this is the thing i was seeking for at iRO for a very very long time. to be honest, i'm going to make a video about it and my experience on that server. iRO is going down in the drain a lot and its disappointing as -_-. 

 

what i want to iro is somewhat biased because this is purely WOE and economical but  IRO SHOULD F WAKE UP. THEIR SERVER IS DYING

2 & 4. Other than a few boss cards and gears, most monster drops are worthless because of over-supply or being displaced by OCP. Imo implementing OCP was a mistake. They should've gone and implement those mvp and class shadow gears instead. At least shadow gears are 100% cash shop and use different slot, so it doesn't displace any of the main equipment (especially newer ones) which i think should all be obtainable through non-cash shop means. That way non-cash shop and cash shop contents would have been more balanced.

 

getting off-topic

Spoiler

 

 

5. Imo there is no reason especially for new players to choose iRO over private server other than the 'official' label. Some private server may even live longer than iRO.

 

 

If i were in charge of a new server, instead of relying on lucky boxes, i would remove all equipment except costumes from the cash shop and introduce achievement system that will greatly increase vip, bm, silvervine and other non-equipment cash shop items purchases.

 

Achievement examples:

1. Reach max level in one month. The reward for each character is exclusive shadow gear or enchant stone (like the ones in RO zero). The reward should change every month, isn't random but each class gets different shadow piece or enchant stone, must be exclusive obtainable only through completing this achievement, and should definitely not be -_-. All that so players will actually do the achievement. This will also make class distribution more diverse, supporting party play.

 

I also think leveling should be made easier than now. But make it so there are more reasons to create additional characters while at the same time boosting vip & bm purchases. Game nowadays should be like french fries, quick and easy to prepare but you never stop after eating just one. It will also make the server especially leveling places more lively which is good advertising.

 

 

2. 'Instance cooldown reset system' combined with 'instance boss bounty board'. I imagine something like 10 silvervine to reset all daily instances, 30 to reset all weekly instances. The mission reward is exclusive shadow gear or enchant stone. Each mission should give different reward that changes every month and have one month cooldown per character. More reason to create additional characters.

 

Most if not all people who still play this game are working adults, some with family to attend. Many people like me only have time to play on weekends. This delay our progress as we can only do most instances twice a week. The game used to be pay-to-play, why not make it pay-to-playMORE. RO is heavily rng oriented. Countless players spend an entire year or more hunting an mvp and gets close to nothing in return. Having more contents that are not rng but still requires you to play the game may make the game less punishing and more engaging.

 

 

3. Refine achievement for various character bound equipment (i read they will introduce more of these in the future). If you successfully refine a gear beyond a certain point (let's say +15), you will be given an exclusive reward. You will only be rewarded once for each type of gear and each refine point beyond +15.

 

 

 

Sry for the long reply. Your post and a new server coming to my country make me think a lot of wishful ideas. For everyone reading it, i hope it makes sense and my english isn't too confusing.

You could post your suggestions in the "Improving Ragnarok Online" Thread, or directly into the trash bin, same result.

lol, they would spent more time to put more cash item for sale than making something real for the server. They make updates like bounty board now. One week a city? I mean wtf. It is something that can be done in a week, but they decide to do it in a month, so they can show us "Oh, we are working on updates!". It is kinda bs thing now. Never should expect them to make something new and interesting.
