You guys WILL loose over 30% of your players because you do this WITHOUT consulting us. Nice job


Can we see the math/facts you used to obtain this?

The loyal players will stay, regardless of what happens.

WoE on whatever server gets the merge should be interesting however.

Past experience's with other MMO's who made the most retarded choices like this. Now those MMO games are either all botters or just about empty with only those players who are built beyond God because they have no lives and like ruining the game rather than having fun.

Just make another server dammit. Seriously, not freaking cool.



I AGREE with this. It would be much wiser to make a new server. This way less complications.

Were you around during the server merge? Enough said.

The loyal players will stay, regardless of what happens.

It is possible for players to stop being loyal, too.

I don't think ygg even has 30%, I'd say maybe more like 20-25% max. But most hardcore players will stay, I guess. So it's definitely much less than 30% quit numbers.

In case no one remembers on a thread not long ago, Heim said that Ygg was always intended as a server to be merged and then reset. A new low population server is appealing to new players....and how long has the veteran community been whining for a pre-renewal server? Renewal is a disaster in many ways and it's broken mechanics is what drove the player base away (not the merger).
Other servers have also had severe population crashes related to renewal. Our GMs are smart enough to realize that pre-renewal server is very, very very good idea in the long term.

I beg you to please poll the members of the server to determine if they EVEN WANT TO MOVE, before you even proceed with something like this.

You've angered a lot of people by implementing that extra WoE. And you saved face, drama, trouble, and I daresay, income, by having the PLAYERS play a key role in the decision making. I hope you will do the same by putting our servers' members wants into consideration.

You will see that the vast majority (especially the active players) do NOT want a merge. Absolutely do NOT want a merge.

So does that mean everyone will start over with novice characters on the pre-renewal server?

I think this is a pretty solid idea. I hope this brings some new blood to the Ymir server and it infuses new blood into the game in general. Pre-renewal server? Win! I will definitely be creating a few char's to enjoy feelings of times past.

This may sound stupid:

1. Open a New Server.
2. Allow people to select which server they want to go to. I understand this could be a pain in the ass on the Dev's side, but it would eliminate a lot of the butthurt.
3. ????
4. Profit?

For those asking for refunds on xfer, you're getting what you wanted, you paid for what you wanted. Just cause it happens to be for free after the fact, thing is you thought it was worth paying for at the time and you bought it.

Maybe it would have gone over better if they called it "Ragnarok Online Classic" instead. Adding "classic" to the name always works.

That's the idea!

Classic is actually the name of the new server.

if i just put in an xfer from ygg --> valk/ymir can i get a refund?

The GMs are currently working on those and while we will likely have a option available for people to pay if they don't want to wait, I similarly feel that people who recently put in a VAS and would like to wait should be able to have that cancelled.

If they're going to be that butt-hurt about it, so be it then.

I personally would love to see the merge come to Ymir, it would fix a lot of problems the server already has.
