As of March 28th, 2011, Nexon Corp. has acquired GRAVITY Co. Ltd and it's subsidiaries. Beginning June 22 many GRAVITY games will be migrating to our web portal. These include Ragnarok Online, Dragon Saga, and Emil Chronicle Online. Services for Requiem: Momento Mori and ROSE Online will cease as of June 22nd, 2011. We understand these games have a loyal fanbase, unfortunately we do not see sufficient income from these two titles and must shut them down to avoid losses.
Users will be able to migrate their current WarpPortal game accounts up until August 12th, 2011. We will begin the migration process soon. So check back later this week for updates.

Emil Chronicle Online is a new offering never before seen in the United States. We are very excited about acquiring this title and have a bright future planned for the titles release into the Nexon family.

Emil Chronicle Online is a animation style MMORPG based on the chronicles of the three races: Emils who are human, Titanians who are angels and Dominions who are devils. The game combines clean graphics, charming characters and a wide variety of avatars, which all gamers can easily enjoy.

We expect ECO to be ready for launch alongside Ragnarok Online and Dragon Saga on June 22nd. We will be hosting a short beta in the coming weeks before launch to work out any serious bugs.

Ragnarok Online will be experiencing some big changes. More details on that will be posted later this week. We are very very excited to be acquiring this classic title and wish to let it find a lasting home within the Nexon family.

For current players of these titles, we will do whatever we can to make the migration process go smoothly. Please do not be afraid to use our award winning support system if you run into any problems.

April Fools
So does this mean WarpPortal is closing? Why weren't we told about this beforehand? Is everyone at GRAVITY being fired or what? I'm so confused :o

This is very very upsetting. Other than seeing Emil Chronicle Online finally see the light of day, I'm not happy with this at all.

We welcome our new Nexon overlords. Sorry Oda, some Korean dude is gonna replace you now!! RO will probably be shut down and translated into Dutch, as we all know the Netherlands is where RO is most popular. Tot ziens!

Hopefully they give our current GM's and CM's jobs at Nexon.

Poor Oda :o I don't think they told him. I bet Heimdallr is like Michael Scott in the one episode where he is scared to tell them about the company closing.

Be nice to the office furniture Oda.

How is it possible that the nobody was informed, if this happened already two days ago? Probably the admins of iRO got their notification e-mail from Gravity in Korean and deleted it immediately, thinking it was advertisement from the laundry shop next door or something.

Anyway, that's the law of capitalism. Rich entities take over less rich entities, and probably within a decade or two all of the world's companies, organisations, and even governments will be split up between Google, Disney, and McDonald's. :o

I get GRAVITY KR emails all the time, they usually find their way into my Gmail Spam folder.

I have no idea if this is a trick or not. I really really hope it is. RO doesnt need any more changes than it has already.

I would like that this could be true and not an April's fool, so I could sell more RO stuffs, but unluckily since I moved in The Netherlands I found only 5 RO players and 3 where from the p.servers. ^^;;;
