so a recent open RT is your main server so fast? well thats nice, people with hope its always welcome, I remember many friends told me "come to Restart, it will be a new beggining". Two years later, they are into iRO coz re:start closed so fast.
However, I think we need to be optimist, I, as an old iRO Chaos player, wont move for many reasons, friends in that server, other reasons already mentioned, like the time invest and the gears I posses, all the classes in my multiple accounts, its too much to leave just like that. But thats an old iRO Chaos Player vision, we need to try to figure out other's vision, like a new player, If you offer a new comer to choose between a fresh new server, no matter if its based on RO:Zero or renewal, just by the fact (and this is I've heard a lot) the economy starts from 0's its more attractive than an old server with broken gears, zeny, etc. Very Often I've heard "we cant compete against players with lots of gears/MVPs/Zeny/etc" and thats part false, but they dont know coz they dont even bother to play.
There are players who dont like 3rd classes, coz they think its too broken, well, classic server closed too, and this is a fresh start to them with new mechanics and fresh environment.
Also, the business view from staff, a new service means new players, trying to drag the players who emphatize with ro:zero project and the players above described, Im happy they try to attract new players to Ragnarok environment, its a 2002 game, its hard to get new players, so its a business and this may be a nice invest for it. Wish you luck to all the staff members.
had to be honest, by the re:start era, they pay less care to chaos server, focus on a server with huge bots and didnt do something till was too late.
Hope this wont means you will pay less attention to Chaos server, coz, lets talk with the true, if this new project is not profitable, where do you think they gonna move the player's data? a hint: its a chaotic server.
