Don't forget we even get 2000 online in last October.

 

We used to believe the 600-800 online is just a temporary phenomenon. But just after the server is up for 2 weeks, and at the US Presidents' Day long weekend, we are still having such little population. So I'm afraid it is not a "temporary" thing as we used to think of.

 

Want to ask about what behaviors will WP do then to increase the popularity of Chaos. No matter how much energy and mind WP devotes to RT, Chaos is always my home. When will we have our online population back to, let's say, 1500?

 

By the way, I'm also happy to see, if WP can use some legal methods, like a lawsuit, to thoroughly ban those our "illegal competitors". Copyright invasion is never tolerated in US.

 

 

Update: Glad to see we achieve 1200+ online recently. Still waiting for accelerating new updates and OCPs for further activation.

It's almost impossible to get Chaos population up. Once people are out of their comfort zone ie. log in iRO, then it's hard to get them to play RO again. Remember that Chaos is a result of merging many servers. Whenever population servers were low, they just simply merged the servers. This method has been used to debunk the claim of "OMG RO is dying" for years. iRO has survived for 17 years through merging servers to keep the main server population high. Now we only have 2 servers left, one has 550 - 750 online and the other has 125 - 175 online. Even if WP attempted to merge last remaining servers, the population would not reach 1.5k. In fact, me too. I'm very curious to see what actions they will take to lead the future of Chaos and Thor.

 

Opening a new server is a much more effective solution. Never played RoT but read somewhere here that it has over 3k+ population?

Nothing they can do to bring the population up. Only we the players can try to bring interest to the game through youtube,twitch,or whatever since they dont advertise the game anymore.The ROT population was around 4k last time i checked it i guess thats where the focus of WP will be.

3K population but they are having swarms of botting problems right now.

RoT players are getting tired of it, fast.

Oh -_-, I just closed my iRO WoE youtube channel. It had around 450ish of iRO WoE videos and around 1.5kish subs from RO WoE lovers. Time to create a new Youtube channel to ... make iRO WoE 2020, so people can get interested in iRO WoE again  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:

they should have to make many aggressive decisions to fix the server, which would cause chaos in the chaos/thor/forum many could complain

 

except that because they don’t follow the way KRO, they’re holding updates [rumors]

 

outside the part where even the BRO Online that was the most delayed server, is much more updated than the iro! :ani_swt3:

 

so that as some OCP are nerfed, i played BRO long time ago, IDK now :hmm:

 

they have NOGH for almost 1 year, between other updates :heh:  :heh:

Well we can only stay aboard the sinking ship till the last moment then  :heh: . Was there any ADs for ROT or was info of it spread just from players? I saw some BR youtube streams with a good amount of views and ragnarok reddit threads when the beta started.

I have an idea. Stop the multi-boxing. Everyone I see going around has at least a priest slave logged in and following them. This kind of activity makes grouping irrelevant at all levels, and people just solo. Just think of a priest out here trying to get a party, but everyone has a priest slave..... 

 

I play it old school. The only character not on my same account is my merchant (so I can vend whenever) and I like using storage to transfer my items between characters. It would also be nice to get a party some time, but again - multi-client with heal slave KILLS that.

 

Greedy players are creating their own problems, and then asking WP to fix them. That's the short of it.

Been saying many times too that multi-clienting is stupid and toxic. However there aint any reliable ways to actually stop people from running multiple clients. P2P model would solve this problem but iRO will never go P2P path.

The future is uncertain. So what i can tell is.. we just wait over time. RO T is high in population now but we dont know what will it be in the future. Some people predicted RO T is gonna have same fate like what Odin did: Closure due to boredom of non 3rd classes / bots issue / dead WoE, etc. And thus, another server merge that force ppl to play chaos..and thats why people called Ro T as "Restart 2.0"

Cant help the low number tho, some people just move on to other thing. For example myself, I log in only like twice into iRO chaos server since opening to check the update. Before, I log in almost everyday but once the two months hiatus its kinda hard to get back into. :S

Though, not sure why but I still check up the forum times to times lol...

people saying RoT will just die and merge to chaos, u prolly right. but you should realise that RoT is a very unique server and with future skill changes/balances and newer content will just make the server more interesting. is like relearning a new game on a FRESHLY new server. unlike chaos its already flooded with too much items/mvp cards and crazy stuff. u need at least 300b zeny worth of gear to even relevant or compete on chaos. while trans every1 is starting fresh, figuring out whats next and stuff.

You’re not wrong. And that’s why even Gravity also focus on a crappy RoM rather than RO in general. New game, new server, new contents, etc.

It’s unfortunate but what iRO can really do, with limited contents, is to open a new server with reused contents and a little changes here and there. It doesn’t matter if RoT eventually closes and a new server opens, many people will come back. For example, Re:start case

Why not WP take a lawsuit to kill our "illegal competitors"? Copyright is a very serious thing, at least in US and Canada.

 

It doesn't matter whether their players will come to iRO or not after those servers are killed. Defending the copyright is justice.

if its not actually fixing a problem, its probably not worth the money. even from a player stand point, i feel the hundreds if not thousands of dollars it would take to do this would just not be worth it on any sort of the matter. spending money to no avail is really bad business lol

Probably worth mentioning again that merges don't always actually fix the problem of declining populations.


If none of the problems and reasons why people are quitting are fixed, people will just continue to quit like usual. If nothing changes in those servers/services themselves, it'll only be postponing the inevitable
