Did transcendent classes ruin this game?
>>
>>258889524
renewal ruined it
>>
>>258889524
Super Novice/Ninja/Gunslinger ruined it

As there ever a game with expasions as shitty as Ragnarok Online ?

After the 4~5th exp it was clear they had no fucking idea what to do with the game.

>>258889524

I dunno, I'm still enjoying it well enough. Granted I only ever made it to trans on private servers....

But really, I'm just waiting for the maintenance on the official servers to finish up so I can play some more. Still seems to be just as fun as I remember it.

>>258891832
How's the population? Is it filled with bots?

>>258891569
Yeah, I just hated how they never expanded on those classes.
except for Super Novice. Fuck Super Novice

I stuck to iRO for years, but I kind of regret it. The cash shops on top of the sub fees were ridiculous, and charging people $15 for skill resets was the most jewish thing I've ever seen.

Also, 1x/1x/1x rates are hell. Pure, 100% hell.

I miss you, Lum.

people who genuinely think renewal ruined the game are delusional
It's gravitys money grubbing jew ways that truly destroyed it. the first terror sign was the chick hat enabling double attack. If renewal had a tolerable grind I don't see why it'd be bad

Yes, they had potential to be good but the main issue is that it became the turning point between RO between 'old' and 'new' RO.

Some people argue juno patch ruined everything with 2-2, but I honestly see no problem with them.

I wouldn't be surprised if the same team that envisioned transclasses also made RO2.

>>258897049
Not sure if I say disgusting or not, considering I hated RO brainless grind, still, pretty disappointing.

Official servers are free to play now, so why not just play on them? They are most likely to still be around if you get the urge to play again later on down the road. Especially if you just want a low rate server anyway.

Somewhat unrelated, euRO was truly the last decent official server. Even though I played iRO, I was pretty envious of them at times.

Pretty much if two characters are married, you can have a character be that couples kid. You get some type of bonus with your parents or whatever, but I think it caps your stats lower than normal.

Pre-renewal was most social time indeed. I can't remember more social game since that.
I played on russian official server. Donations and bad management was issue, sure, but pretty much only renewal really killed game for me. It was more when they did than what they did. By the time renewal was out I already wasn't intrested enough in RO to learn all that new mechanics and shit. So was most players of my generation, and without old friends game was meaningless.

Ok how many of you really think Tree of Savior will suck big time?

I been playing mmos religiously for the past 11 years korean or western you name it, and I've learned to not get hyped the hard way, so many dissapointments one after another, just made me lose faith in my beloved genre. But when this god damn ToS blog updates started coming a few months back, I couldn't help but get crazy about it again, it looks so good, so fun and addicting, I'm too excited about it that if it turns out to be shit I'm going to scream internally for letting myself getting this hopeful again.

So seriously, hit me with your best shot, tell me why Tree of Savior will be crap so I can go on with my life instead of spamming refresh on their blog every 5 fucking minutes.

I should have some from the beta if I ever go get an external HD case with various connectors to plug in these ancient hard drives I have.

I've still got every HD I've used from around 1995 to present, they just don't plug into my SATA-only PC. Some probably don't work either.

worst case scenario is it falls into the same monetization traps as every other shitty korean grinder that ever existed or will exist does

>>258912845
Some things I worry about is the linearity of the quests system and how much 'freedom' it really gives you. Also the possibility of dungeons being instanced. Granado Espada, from what I remember was also p2w as fuck when it went f2p, but surely ToS will be p2p right?
>>
>>258912504
Archer.

Can easily get to a decent level with little to no effort on mandragoras/floras/geographers, while leeching your alts in the process.

Only requires DEX and a bow to start with, and can farm virtually anything with elemental advantage.

mage fags can get fucked

No.

Renewal did, but Trans gave the game the longevity it needed. I wouldn't have ever played it as much as I did if it was only about getting two job changes and to 99 once. mostly because I dind't like half the classes, so I wanted to play the few classes I DID like to death.

No official statement yet about business model, most people think it will be p2p with a microtransactions store selling cosmetic items.
>>
>>258912504

monk is probably one of the most gear based classes in the game, unfortunately

archer is good, because not only does dex increase your accuracy, it increases ranged weapon damage, and it's easy to swap elemental affinity with your equipped arrows, traps also can keep something from hitting you entirely as you destroy it, downside is traps and arrows can be a money drain

>>258912845
So they confirmed its an open world with as many non-instanced maps as original RO. However, I'm calling bullshit on their whole class system. RO at its peak in Renewal has 64 classes and that includes every single form of each class and Novice. Now you're telling me the ToS devs have EIGHTY standalone (keyword here) classes? I'm not believing it. If its true I bet they only have like 4 skills each like shitty MOBA games.

Theres my pessimism.
>>
>>258915762
Don't quote me on this, but I think it's 40 tryhard classes and 40 crafting or something similar classes like sheperd you unlock by talking to npcs and some of them will be "secret" or require some sort of quest to unlock.
>>
>>258915762
> If its true I bet they only have like 4 skills each like shitty MOBA games

yep.
>>
>>258915762
They've already stated on their blog that the class with the last skills has 5 skills.
>>
>>258915762
I don't remember but I believe the class system contained a bit more mixing. Like if you're a swordsmanclass so can you switch between the various swordsmanclasses

No, Gravity ruined this game because they went broke and instead of selling the rights to host the servers to willing buyers, they fucked up big time and started ruining shit.

This is why the private server scene for it became so big.

>>258889524
Absolutely, it meant a lot more grinding to be relevant and killed the game for new casual players. In the earlier days it didn't take much at all for someone to at least be relevant in WoE, because you could only be so strong. Taking the ceiling off meant you had to keep climbing.

This is true, going to be gamepad controls isn't it?

Kind of a shame, there was something about running out of keys in battlemode on even a simple class that made RO controls appealing. The whole "one or two key things you do plus a billion situational things". I miss it.
