Which server to play on?

Post by Derwent Graphite on Tue 27 Nov 2012, 5:55 am

Hi all, this is a continuation from the discussion in the RO thread at EDMW. I've taken just a tiny peek at the current status of both TalonRO and DivinityRO and have some thoughts on which to play on. I believe most of us are in our mid-20s and are currently working/studying in Uni/Poly and may not have the time to grind. I've personally played RO for 6 years, 3 years in mRO and 3 years jumping around private servers.

High-rate servers are out of the question as they're completely no fun.

Mid-rate servers are tricky as the rates could make or break the gameplay experience.

Low-rate servers are the most fun but most time consuming. The best balance I found so far is in the range of 10x-15x where the most boring part of the game (Low levels to mid-40s) can be passed by in a moderate amount of time. The challenge of reaching 99 and transcending a character is still there and will take a bit of dedication and time as well.

Some other things to take into consideration:
  • Server location (ping/latency)
  • Server stability/uptime/backup
  • Game updates
  • Player activity
  • Market/Economy maturity
  • Integrity/Fair moderation from GM


My conclusion is that a server with 20x-25x rates would be comfortable for most edmwers to play in, taking into consideration that people who are late to the party will not be left behind and end up playing alone. Playing a MMO is about the people and less about the game - with great friends even shitty MMOs can end up fun as well. My vote goes toward DivinityRO for now until something better comes up!

DivinityRO
TalonRO
WoonRO
ResurgenceRO
CasualRO


Update: Some edmwers have decided to play on WoonRO, and since I also think that it's pointless to wait around for people to vote... Let's go ahead and play on WoonRO Smile

Please include WoonReloaded as a midrate server. Seems like it's competitive with DivinityRO; the 2 of them share top 2 spots for the midrate server list on ratemyserver.

Done. In terms of player count TalonRO has the most, followed by WoonRO, then tie between DivinityRO and ResurgenceRO.

Talon rate too low nobody will want to grind so long haha. But for anyone who wants close to authentic old-school RO experience with added (but separate) content, i think TalonRO is the best option.

But just like you, i prefer Divinity... i might as well give up on renewal classes already. lol.

Yeah, 5x rates really no joke. I think will alienate a lot of people also, especially those who join like 1 month later or something. When I played on acRO with 12x rates it was pretty okay if you know where to level up your chars. rabbit

really a hard choice for me. Mad

i wouldnt mind playing in the renewal server, but it is the least populated server among all, and that is something which i wouldnt choose to play in a p.server as i prefer a huge community with lots of active players that is not just within our own edmw/hwz group, but a bigger community that is beyond us.

was thinking about talon RO.. since it has 1k players all the time, but the 5x rate is too low for consideration..

so im probably gonna vote woonRO... ranked 1st in the mid rate server with constant 300+ players online. bounce

i've also converted their WoE schedule to SG time:

Sunday 9PM~11PM

Wednesday 1AM~2AM

Saturday 11PM~1AM

Sunday 7AM ~8AM

any server also ok, just want to play together~

but if looking for population, why not just play the original iRO servers?
getting to 99 trans takes only a month as the focus has been shifted to the 3rd classes to lvl to 150~

i don't mind non-renewal, cos don't have much experience with transcendent classes even.
looking at the number of topics/post in their respective forums, seems DivineRO is the most active.

btw casualRO max lvl 150 wor.. so not the official 99 leh player online only 60+.

divinityRO standard max lvl 99. players 150 online.

talon i can be sure is 1400+ players online. not sure excld merchant vending or not. max lvl 99

WoonRO stats over here. http://woon-ro.com/?module=pages&action=view&id=11

max lvl 99, 400 players online.

my ranking of them would be

WoonRO
talonRO
divinityRO
casualRO

for bonus item all these i not sure.

i can understand your concern for number of players.

but what i think we need to remember is that most pple who used to play RO back in the day are not as free now due to whatever reasons.

as it stands right now, we don't have a large enough number to even consider a competitive WoE guild. AFAI remember, one guild minimum 20 peeps right?

given that we are a small guild for now, i think small player base is not a problem yet.

i actually suggest that you all try divinity instead, because in terms of knowing the game mechanics and WoE, not having Renewal is better.

those who want to try out the new 3-1 and 3-2 renewal classes can dl casualro in their own time
