No one really obligated to lvl on ti's, just as much as no one obligated to do mvp runs or grind *back when ti's weren't really available. At least you have a choice to do it or not. Always. Just saying lol. And that haircut....

Every Household is different I'm afraid...

But in any case, this is not about VIP or such... Heim is just letting us know that Balance patch is not here yet so we have no choice but to wait...

The skill balance will be a good 1st step I'm sure but I am absolutely sure it will not be the end of balance requests from us.

The TIs were to help relieve some of the doldrum and make it a bit more possible to level and stay current with everyone. But I want to do more that is attractive to you players, Snewt what you said very much keys in with why I want to do more. WoE is a big deal in RO but should not be the only thing that is attractive to logging in and playing, I want more people wanting to take part at least a few nights a week (if they can't do every day).

Events are fine, but we spend 2-3 weeks developing an event and at most it takes like 4 hours for a player to complete it, so there really is no way we can "out event" your playtime, the key is repeatable content that is fun and permanent. We don't have a squadron of designers, planners and scripters to make our events here, so we have to be smart with what we plan so that we can get them implemented on time and that they are fun.

So what sort of game play systems is RO not delivering right now that would be of personal fun benefit to you?

Honestly more dungeons like ET, but have them set up for people in different share ranges. That way everyone can go through, get some decent gears, make some good exp, etc... Put them on a 12-48 hour cycle. Long enough for people not to camp them all day, but short enough that people can do them more than once a week. I know people will complain about how the MVPs will be over saturated, but honestly that's the best thing I can think of. Like lvls 1-25 for 75-95 lvls 26-50 for 95-115 lvls 51-75 for 115-135 and lvls 76-100 for 135+... maybe alter the mobs so they're more in line with peoples levels. Increase the exp of the MVPs but make the drops halved. Maybe set up one that's half the exp and 2x drops... I dunno just throwing ideas out here off the top of my head to get people to play more and party more.

*Just to clarify, these would be separate from ET... (different dungeons so to speak)

A better friend system.

A easier to establish /recruit and such.

Items in the woe chest that make people want to keep woe.

Ummm establishing things that keep the game balanced in terms of bought items vs in game items. Most games that want to keep long term players will put in the best gear in game.

Updating the battle grounds gear to reflect the renewal.

putting in a way for us to suggest stuff, and way to know if you have taken the suggestions.

quarterly updates kinda like you did with your "future of ragnarok" so that people know what might be coming.

They haven't been put in any servers so we won't be getting them anytime soon. There are only small previews for the ninja second class and nothing on the gunslinger class really except old concept art.

I'd like to be able to write with my native language's proper grammar.

I can't use á, é, í, ó, ú, ñ, ü (both small and capital letters), french friends can't use ç, â, ê, î, ô, û, à, è, ì, ò, ù; and every time we write properly in our native languages, we get an error and are forced to write in an insulting way for our native languages. This is supposed to be International Ragnarok Online, and I bet 60% of server's players are not English native speakers, so please, show a little consideration and respect to us by allowing us to write with the proper stress marks in our own languages.

Other think I'd really like is to be able to deactivate damage numbers from appearing in my screen (WoE like), so I don't get lagged when partying (or disconnected) due to the big ammount of graphics processed in the screen (even with /effects off... I play in a netbook and a lot of people play in old computers as well... That's the main reason they started playing ragnarok, due to the low graphic card requirement of this game -_- )

Regarding to skills update... I know we already have a free reset with the mesmerist, but... I'm saving that reset for when I get my char to 150/50 (as a lot of people is doing), but, are you planning to give us an extra reset to fix the changes that are going to screw our leveling build and then get the original reset to get our WoE build? (just asking, don't crucify me on this)

Thanks in advance

I do work but at this point that $10 could be better spent on groceries or gas since I have no desire to play RO in its current state.


As far as other things I'd like to see, and I know this has been said a lot recently, we need another zeny sink. And I'm also concerned about the whole selling WPE for Zeny too- it's nearly impossible to sell anything that isn't a Cash shop item or a WPE code, which ends up making some monster drops worth less than they probably should be worth.

I do like the turn-in events, but I am just BURNED out right now. Thankfully, by choosing to take a break from it once in awhile, I can be confident that I won't miss out for too long if I'm stuck between level ranges.

Overlook Byalan dungeon? GREAT Idea. I'd like to see this done with other dungeons that have desirable cards (maybe sunken ship? I still consider the following cards to be somewhat useful: Kukre, Hydra, Whisper, Penomena, Pirate Skel (for valk helm creation). Heck, I just like sunken ship a lot, I wish I knew the story about it -_- Maybe that could be a forum event for an upcoming quest!

The reason I bring up the forum event things for quests is because the Christmas Quest last year was created by a player- when you give your players a chance to give you the ideas to do the programming off of, it makes things more interesting for everyone.

The MVP summoner I also like a lot, BUT, the problem lies within getting some summoning materials- perhaps you could put in some kind of exchange NPC or a daily quest so that some materials (tiger skin, gemstone) are easier to obtain (eddga and tao gunka are camped constantly and there is little to no chance of a regular player who wants to kill these mvps of ever getting 1 let alone 2 of the summoning items required).

In all honesty, it could be that I am just losing interest in this game- I have been playing since 2004 (...maybe it was 2005).

The irony is that accents are allowed by the client when used alone, in order to create emosmileys I guess ^_^'
