My name is Edwin Kuswanto (33), Ragnarok Online is my first ever MMORPG and I play it since 2004(IDRO) and 2014 (IRO).
Everything is fine until that long ass 2 months server update Maintenance happening, everything is goes down hill, there is nothing genius about it, and there is nothing good coming from it, and most importantly there is nothing fun about it, the purpose is still unclear the content is vague AF.
Ragnarok online is really harsh and complicated game, and demand players to explore, do a experimental research, because there is thousand gears, thousand cards, thousand items in the game,
What kind of weapon, helm/hat (top,mid,low), armor/suit, boots/shoes, garment, shield/guard, ACC and what kind of card I should use, what kind of recovery item I can use, where to found it, where to buy it, can I craft it?, do I need to do a quest to get it?.... is the item even exist?.... how much it cost?, and dont make me start with how to play the specific classes because even its a same class it have different build purpose (Example: Gene MVP and Gene Brewing)
After the update I have a problem:
Check this thread:
Especially my post in the spoiler:
•Shooping Board is ultra <snip>, its really pain in the ass to search something, it give lack of information and it provide no suggestion.
You crippling the market, u literally destroy the market, what you expecting players to do?, wandering around clicking the vending one by one?, and there is like hundred of Merchant vending selling random thing.
Again, the problem is its lack of efficiency, and its not fun at all, I want to see all the buying items in a list form, I want to see a list item related to what I search
Example: Lets just say I need a "Pupa card", when I search "pupa" I want to see a list of everything related to Pupa Card, even (armor/suit) with Pupa card attached to it.
When I search for a "Crimson" I want all list of Crimson Weapons and everything with "Crimson" listed, include a Crimson weapons with card attached to it and the Crimson elements, unless I type a specific Crimson weapon type (Sword,mace,axe,etc).
All this thing just make me lost my interest to play, there is no clear information what I can sell or what I can buy, I cant see what people selling.
I got amazed by my self, I got amazed by my self because in fact I still playing this game until now, its really funny to see this Ancient game try its best to stay alive and compete with another new games nowadays.
The way Publisher try to dealing with illegal program such bot, dupe, macro make me sick, like really who is actually take a charge in this game (Manager)?, Campitor?, is he living under a rock?, do he have any idea what <snip> is?, there is around 33.859 peak players in last 30 days when I type this, there is no such a thing like bot, or any illegal things happen in that game, not even a macro.
Do you know the secret ingredient to make this game clean from bots?, all those spammer, scammer, or all that scumbag try to earn money by selling Zenny?, its can be started by make the IRO account not for free.
Because I believe all this bot scumbag are those people live in 3rd country try to earn money from the game, those scum just simply use illegal program bypassing everything to make hundred account and start botting.
Sign me up, because I believe you need money to feed all the staff who working in the game, move my account to a premium server where everyone need to purchase an account in order to play, if the server fail just delete it include my account in it.
•NO FUN ALLOWED
The fun factor of Ragnarok online is when you do a research and found interesting thing, for example is like attaching a injustise card in your mace as an Acolyte, holy crap look I can do Sonic Blow as an Acolyte,
Or that moment when you learn the basic key of autocasting, or combining card in a new gear to get perfect combination, that Aegir set armor, that sprint set, etc.
for me, what make me really completely lost my interest to play is because polymorphing mushroom in Gene classes is disabled, I mean look at this tutorial thread I made:
[Tips] Free Dead Branch Made of Mushrooms.
Now there is nothing drop, the only drop I get is all the items from the Mushrooms, there is no Ice cream, Pie, candy, candy cane, or monsters.
This is really destroying fun part of being a Gene, as a gene this make me feel like I lost my purpose, just go MPVing or simply logout, that is the only thing I can do right now, usually I AFK leveling my Homun, but because the vague AF update of bull-_- I cant do it anymore.
