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.
It's not dead yet, just took another bullet.
Dang bro chill, if RT gets a stat reset put in soon it will be alive and kickin
So was restart. Which got mismanaged into oblivion.
Screw you, nope. Killed my body but cant obliterate my soul, damn weak iRO. Aint gonna start over again. If I wanted to, I would already start on that private server along with those folks. Gonna stay here until they merge Chaos and Thor, then I will come back. Otherwise, this is my home lmfao
It's not going to happen get over it. The communities are in two different time zones, get that through your head.
Please don't even jokingly shame people for playing the game.
There are no plans to close Chaos or Thor at this time. I do however very much see that they need a lot of attention and we pushing to get bother servers updates and changes that they need. We have started to receive the data for the April update already which is amazingly early and will give a lot of extra time. I will have the Advanced Old Glast Heim items ready for testing this week and move forward with testing some other settings that are important for the long term health of the server.
GTB will not be on the server.
We need to know your long term plans. If it's an update every 4 months, that's far too slow. We'll still be years behind kRO. Why is kRO treating iRO so poorly? Getting one update quarterly? Are we suppose to be jumping up and down for joy?
Honestly, what needs to happen is the NA branch of Gravity needs to buy itself out of the Korean/Japanese branches, and do it's own thing. Them being controlled as they are now is what's putting us SO FAR behind the other servers, and killing the game. It's honestly sad, when the private servers are only a few months behind the official kRO/jRO servers with episode updates and mechanic updates, while we're 2+ years behind, and only get mechanics nerfs to our abilities/items, without the fixes for them to balance out that nerf(Impending melee reflected damage not triggering autocast spells is a great example). I love this game, and have played it for going on 9 years now, but you guys really need to step it up, because the server is pretty much dead now. Your decision to ignore the GDRP changes 2 years in advance cost you 1/3 the player base as it is, and the EAC update + making homunc completely useless has dropped the population even further. I can understand the need for an anti-bot/cheat system, but you could have AT LEAST incorporated the functions from AzzyAI into the game's base homunculus functions, and same for mercenary functions.
And another thing. Everything for the past 5 years or so has been pay to win. All of these OCP's have honestly ruined the game. I like a lot of the items, but making them pay to win was a dumb move. You would have A) made a lot more money if you'd have made them quest related/farmable/craftable, and left only the mad bunny Elu/Ori boxes in the shop, because you'd have gotten more ppl to buy those to upgrade their gear, and have more ppl playing to farm up the stuff needed to craft those types of gears. The new VIP system per character is ~ the same as the original VIP, but you DO owe those of us who paid for the new one compensation for the past 10 days, because we have NOT received full benefits from it, which includes the NPC functions we are entitled to, andthe death penalty change(that was one of the main reasons FOR VIP). As I stated before, those changes earlier on would have made you SO MUCH MORE money, and had a MUCH happier player base.
I truly hope that you will all seriously rethink your marketing strategy, as well as the future roadmap for the game, because your game is sinking really fast, and the playerbase has been throwing you suggestions like life preservers like crazy, but you still refuse to reach out...
I've been preaching this for years. They can't change their marketing. As they'd have to go to subscription and we know the player base can't support that. If they'd of listened years ago we wouldn't be where we are now.
The lynching of homunculus attacking AI doesn't bother me. The movement AI being dumb as bricks does bug me.
Reflect levelers hog mobs and should of been taken out years ago.
