I have no sense of how things are going behind the scenes but I do have a few ideas, if there was a moment were ideas could be getting tossed around.
(Seems kinda crazy but)
How about bringing back a Classic server? (again?)
Except this time with a few changes:
No more transcending!
A global cool down on pot usage. (might make the game too hard in some places but it could make things more interesting in PVM and PVP)
Add OP weapons for under powered classes like Ninja. (its cheating but maybe could increase variety?)
Add Silverine system and KP items to match.
It can never get updated. (not counting events)
More things to slow down or stop zeny inflation.
There's probably some more details to worry about but this is what I got. The hard part for me was thinking about it not getting any big updates but if all the rest of the stuff was fine tuned good enough then I think it could actually work well in theory. I'm not sure if its possible to put a cool down on potions but if it was then I believe it would lead to some hilarious deaths and maybe fix a few other balance issues. I also considered asking about an open PVP server but ended up putting a higher priority on the basic stuff.
So this is my idea from a person with zero knowledge of the behind the scenes goings on and is throwing out stuff for brainstorming purposes. I don't have much technical know how in this area but I did base my list off of past feedback. I cant really comment on if it would be popular or anything like that. Does anyone have stories or links from the first time players tried to ask about a Classic IRO server? Because I would find that fascinating.
