RT was not close to a classic/vanilla server. iRO Classic wasn't even classic.

 

1x rates + $10/month VIP + 100% cosmetic cash shop + real bot protection = easy 3k+ players online for a few years.

Why, so people can complain within a year of launch that there is no new content? <snip>

There's about 10 years of pre-renewal content to progressively add to a new classic server (condensed into 2-3 years probably?). 

 

Please don't insult me!  :)

In 3 years they just relaunch Classic again after the progression runs out. Its a money printing machine. The biggest draw of an old MMORPG like RO is when a new server launches because everyone is on an even footing with dreams of "taking over the server". There should always be a new server and a retirement home server for every version of RO.

If they can merge it back into renewal WHEN it fails, sure. Not at all likely.

I would play on an official pre renewal server again. Did the old classic die? Yes. Did I have fun playing it and would do it all over again? Hell yes!
The people that don't like it can just keep playing on renewal.

 

As much as I would love to see a new classic server every 2-3 years, I don't think it will happen anytime soon. That said with them giving away a Tesla for some junk mobile game soon, it would be a great way to pay for said Tesla.

Progression server is a mess because the content already exists and would just be staggered. Ppl would cry "ded game" "zero content" every single week, every single update patch. Not would, it literally happens on every progression server that is ever released anywhere

While iRO is indefinitely waiting for level 185 update that will never come because other more whaling servers get that privilege and attention, iRO might as well open another server.

Need a new renewal server, so after 2-3years when it dies, it can merge to Chaos. A new server that follows kRO 100%. No bull-_-. VIP also should be character bound instead of account bound, so less alts to abuse the instances to saturate PvM loots.

Let's -_- gooooooo

What are examples of classic servers that have done this?

Well, Classic is Classic. It is a very specific thing. If RO had a dev team I might be interested in Classic+ (Classic with new maps / monsters / items). But since RO1 seemingly doesn't have a dev team, the best we can hope for is a content recycle on a schedule.

 

However, I do recall when Classic came out there were some issues with people thinking WoE / Trans update needed to happen sooner. IIRC when Valkyrie came out WoE castles were FFA on release. Which led to a single guild controlling them for months before enough guilds got strong enough to break the stranglehold. I don't think pre-renewal has enough content to last for a year before veterans get bored of it and call it dead. It might almost be better to copy "Leagues" from other games where the League lasts a few months and depending on certain character achievements during the league you get a permanent cosmetic on the retirement server your character gets rolled into at the end.

 

Although, considering server rollovers require a DB maintenance and we have to assume the highest level of incompetence, it may be too costly / have too many hiccups for WP to do regular merges and provide support for all the fallout.

That's okay, I don't expect anyone on these forums to agree with me because I would imagine only renewal players use these forums. Having multiple server options doesn't take away from playing the server you prefer to play. For example, path of exile has the option to play softcore or hardcore and they co-exist. 

 

I do believe that more RO players around the world prefer classic than renewal, however there are no official classic servers to play. This gives the opportunity for a huge international server. It's not like anything needs to be invented. All the server needs is old content and to not be ruined by the cash shop and bots.
