alot of people thta played pre renewal server went into a private server and continue playng pre renewal. im prety sure if iRO decided to make a pre renewal server, those people will come back and check it out. iRO was their home server, when renewal hit it prety much hit them and left. i hope tht this pre renewal server will work out. im sorry for the ygg players, i hope it will be a win win ssituation for all of us


Why would you go from free and better to cash shop driven and outdated? And anybody who thinks they wont add a cash shop just like they did in renewal is delusional.

Until they realize they can't pay the resources to manage 4 servers and have to slash out one server to be able to manage it. Merging is inevitable, it's a marketing strategy to save money.


In other words, you have to bear it if you get more lags after they open the new server, unless of course, you are willing to merge.

Is this more lies from the ygg people or are they really not making a pre-renewal server? GMs please clarify.

Making RO 3D will kill what little resilience it has in the market, namely niche appeal with the cutesy 2D sprites.

You do have a point on the gameplay, though. Sadly RO's engine is ancient and I doubt anyone in iRO knows how to make any significant changes to it (nor can they without kRO's permission, right?)

So they can't really change anything besides numbers when it comes to skills, I think.



I don't think going back to the 02 style of play will help the game RO is dated and it's time has come and gone that's why so many old players left. The best they can do is make sure that remaining time left is fun for those who are here because they will not be attracting many new players anytime soon.

Unfortunately yes, for a game like RO managing 4 servers is no easy task resource and money-wise. It costs money to make it happen and to keep all servers alive they're REALLY gonna need cash poured onto them as well as extra people to do work/moderate the servers.

Too bad it has to come at the expense of ygg ppl but this pre-renewal server is a good idea i think a lot of ppl will come back to test the waters...

Making a new post, the information is no longer the case, and the many pages no longer reflect the current happenings.

Good to see you came out of the War Zone in one piece, that's all I have to say.

I say let Ygg cry.
Merge needs to happen and potential income from a non-renewal server is too great.
if they want to save the server that bad put a price on kick starter and let em raise it.

I'd rather this game be around in some form than go the way of the many ROs that went under when their player base rejected renewal.

This is interesting going to have to transfer my GX but don't have space, oh well.

I would actually like to see up to trans server that still uses renewal mechanics on stats, leveling (locations limited), equipment (limited), and skill balancing. I think it would be a lot more fun and varied and make certain builds (like flee based) a lot more viable. I hope the GMs could consider this idea.

Too little too late. Pre-Re won't be getting any updates or new content or support. Good luck those who go there now. Would have been happy to do it 2 years ago. Not so much today.

For now, we are doing 4 servers. We will give a good amount of time and evaluate how we should use those and possibly additional resources. Ragnarok is doing well, but of course it can do better. There is an upper cap of how well iRO can do with just having exactly what we have now. To leap ahead and possibly bring about another golden era will require something new, or in this case offering something vintage.

Renewal is a dividing point of RO, before is a very different game feel than after. Of course there are many changes that happened incrementally throughout pre-renewal time but none were as drastic as Renewal was. I have strong feelings that offering renewal as a viable legal option could do wonders for growth, or at the least be a viable self sustaining server setup. That is exactly why we are finally doing this. We have been discussing then negotiating opening a pre-renewal server for quite some time, now is the opportunity and we will take it. More specifics on the server setup will be released as soon as I can get it posted.

IRO has been dead for quite some time and there is no way to save it RO2 should fill the void whenever it gets here. All Gravity can do is breath a little life into the game till it dies.
