It's not obtuse, it's logic. You just showed that it's dead. It's iRO's job to fix said issue.
As I said they sacrificed Chaos/Thor for RT
Restart and classic both died because there was nothing to do/poor management. RT is going to head the same direction. Updates every 4 months? By the time we catch up to kRO we'll all be dead.
Sorry to disagree, Warpportal didnt sacrifice -_-. What is dead cant be used for sacrifice. What a disrespect. See this, Classic had been hanging around without updates and new contents for years because they had WoE. Once GDPR hit and consequently demolished WoE, they had to close Classic. It's catastrophic indeed to have to close such official Classic server. That's when they opened Re:start. Now Chaos just self-destroyed WoE, then opening a new server was an inevitable, that is, *booms!* RoT server. Cant you see the pattern? It still amazes me why some people overlook WoE important effects.
About RT, that's the problem we all see. If it's F2P and keep powerful Cash items in game, people will complain. However, making RoT P2P will also instantly make people quit as they dont want to be forced to pay at all. iRO folks love everything free. Warpportal is really in a deep dilemma but lets see what string they're gonna pull it through.
You and I already know that ... kRO loves money. I think the reason iRO is falling behind is because updates are expensive and iRO isnot making big money lately, which is unfortunate.
