Do you miss Ragnarok Online?
« on: April 03, 2009, 08:11:32 AM »
I'd post this on the RO general forums, but most people there still play RO. I'd bet there's a lot of guys that post in the Off topic forums that no longer play RO, but still frequent these forums.

Do you miss RO? How long have you not been playing RO?

I haven't been playing since early 2005.

I kinda miss it, but I know everyone that I used to play with no longer play.

I started at 2003 but I quit like at 2008.

I only miss the music,design and some of the people which most of them quit.

I miss pre-Kafra Shop/Box Event/Valkyrie RO. (When servers still had decent population) The Sakray merge is what really killed the game for me (due to lack of free transfer options to something other than Iris).
 
Otherwise, I have no current desire to play it as it is currently being run by Gravity. IMO if they can't run the game at a profit without completely destroying it as they've been doing, it should die.
 
(Basically quit Q4 2007)
If you never try anything new, you\'ll miss out on many of life\'s great disappointments.

Been playing for 5 years now.
 
Quit for a few months mid 2008 because of RL stuff and the lack of free (or heavily discounted) transfers from sakray. (before the transfer prices were changed, you basically got raped if you had multiple accounts with many characters on each, I have four accounts)
 
After being urged by friends, tried valk, and while it is okay I miss all my stuff on the main servers. I just don't have the time or the drive anymore to truly put myself into playing from scratch on a new server, hell, my partner was doing most of the leveling for the last few months before I had to stop playing. (We did okay though, it IS a lot of fun, time is just an issue).
 
Haven't played since January of this year because of RL, moving, and not really being interested in the game with the direction it is taking (first lucky box event was fine, trying to get a steady income off of constant box events is not) and the drastic decrease in population on the main servers with nothing being done about it.
 
Do I miss it? Only really miss the game before 2007-2008 when populations started to drop like crazy. These days if I play, I play for only a few people. If main servers got merged, I'd prolly come back and try it out for a while.

i stopped fully playing around August of '08 and did 30 hours which lasted 2-3 months at a time because I would afk to run the hours out.

My account's been recently renewed again (long story) but I really haven't got on that much at all.  Some good friends have my account and I trust them not taking any shit off of it.


You hear that olga/bato?

Stopped playing in Dec '08.  Only part of RO I miss is siege, it was the only thing that actually kept me playing RO at all for the past few years, so when I ended CT because of getting a new job and starting senior year of college, that pretty much ended RO's fun for me.  Couple of sieges here and there with a few guilds, but it was leading that kept me around.

I'm thinking of coming back when renewal hits iRO if I'm not already back by then.  Some of the new stuff looks pretty fun, and by then I'll already have my degree.

I stopped playing not long after Juno came out.

I wonder who has my +8 Ghost Silk Robe now..

One thing I regret was not keeping in contact my guildies. I miss em.

Team Banana forever!

Does SimiWizard still play? Pimo, Kan0, Xpertgame989 or something like that.

I got banned while my account wasn't even active(lolololol long story that is very very lame and just.. wow, thanks Gravity), but I miss spending time with the people I've known since like 2003 >_>... I definitely enjoyed RO best right after Juno was released tho. >:

Played for 5 years, stopped playing completely January 2008.
The only thing I miss: THE PEOPLE and my Angel Wings. :)
I don't think I'll even bother to return if renewal rolls around...

What killed the game for me? Not being able to search for parties and being told to just party with yourself on your alts/dual client. Multiplayer my ass!
