We were once their profitable server, ain't we? What have they done to us when we were in that position? Who ruined us?
Damn sad to see everyone is ahead of us when we could be better but not given a chance to do so.
That stopped being true post-2012.
That Xmas event with WOE mvp basically killed everything.
I wasn't active at that time. Care to clarify?
The main thing that ruined the server was the 3 month hiatus and the opening of the RT server. This caused 2 things, people quitting the server and once it came back, the population was already diluted between iRO Chaos and RO:T, causing a domino effect of more people quitting. Not to mention that EAC made the game really slow in terms of performance, you cannot longer open multiple ro clients with ease. It's funny and sad at the same time that such a game as Ragnarok Online, can consume a lot of PC resources like a triple AAA game or even more if you open a couple of accounts. Also, it feels laggy/slow when it comes to the action input, things like the combination of /bangbang and /bingbing with backslide are no longer smooth to do like it used to be.
You forgot the great Eurexit.
You smell money corruption or what? Spit it out
There's no corruption, at least not on a financial scale.
The server isn't abandoned, just not as prioritized as the other ones since those rake in more money. That's perfectly acceptable considering Gravity is still a business. It couldn't be helped.
