Honestly, 500 characters isnt enough for me to review this server. To be brief, ITS REALLY BAD. The GMs have a habit of promising to implement some stuff but never does. Its a server whose events/instances are not friendly to newcomers/solo/casual players and surprisingly even veteran/geared players. It focuses too much on certain peoples meta and doesnt consider/listen to what would be enjoyable for the player base. Lots of problems but their approach to fixing those is to implement costumes.

Thank you for your review - though we have to disagree from the large number of players and positive reviews on some of your points! Our regular updates focus heavily on providing new and regular content, along with ideas which come from server suggestions in the community and other points of feedback. It is a little confusing however to hear that our events may be ill-suited to such a wide range of players, given the popularity of many of them, but we’re always happy for feedback. Thank you!

well i've been playing talonRO for about a week now so sometimes I don't know how to do things but I'm learning some things just by looking in the chat and watching what others talk about with other GMs

Some region experienced lag/bad ping after they changed host(it didn't happen before with old host). PVP/WoE/BG dead for years, no update. They mainly organize event with costume as reward. Community is ok, some are troll.Vanilla eq been nerfed, some char skill (Clown/Champ etc)also nerfed but sniper fav high end char still untouchable. Farming spot nerfed. Only high tier gameplay keep getting the additional rewards (GMC/Wave/Seal) etc2. Any suggestion other than for high tier will auto reject.

Thank you for your review! Our connection upgrades happened some time ago, so if you’re recently experiencing some latency issues, we’d be more than happy to work with you in our troubleshooting section of the forums! Our latest events also provide you with a chance to earn other items beyond costumes, though they are indeed popular additions which many players do look forward to obtaining! We are intentional about gameplay changes as needed, but are always open to your feedback and thoughts.

Playing on and off since launch, it has come to 10 years since i've been on TalonRO. I've seen the server grow from a tiny 150 player base to average 1500 players daily! The GMs are nothing but amazing, with their dedicated core team who are extremely talented and thoughtful, they have not only kept the server alive, but they have made amazing growth in playerbase, a strong community..and its still growing! Balanced, great customizations, WoE, PvP, PvE.. you will NOT find a better server :]

I believe Talonro has came a long way. Although there are still some bugs, they are always quick to respond and resolve it in the next patch. Some of the routine minigames are game master challenges and timed wave challenges. On top of that, new events such as the Halloween event, are frequently introduce on certain months or special occasion. In addition, despite the low rates, MVP and miniboss cards are readily available for a price at the reward guru. This gives newbies a chance to try them.

I have played in this server since 2012. Stability good. This server has been good in the past but currently is dying. Pvm is pretty much dead end & repetitive (ET, GMC, seal). Lots of costumes. The only reason I still played is because of pvp & woe, but in the past 1 year both are dead too. In past 3 years GM keep promising to revamp pvp/woe/bg but ZERO outcome. Keep changing pvp/Woe GM makes it worse , plus Lots of ridiculous rules and nerfed in pvp makes veterans leaving this server.

Thanks for being a long-time member of the TalonRO community and for your review! With over 1800+ people online, gameplay is far from dying - and our recent regular updates certainly bear out a wide range of great new features and modes of gameplay. We certainly hear your feedback and from others about PvP and WoE, and we’re looking forward to unveiling new work in this area shortly. We’re not certain what you may mean however with the rules, as those have been in place for a while. Thanks much!

Play 5 years. Dabbled myself in everything. From PvM to PvP to Smith and brew. Lately there's a lack of creativity and content from the GM. All events are recycled and the only change is stricter access. Instead of new gaming content they only intro more costumes. PvP woe are dead GM shuts down every suggestions that would reward good players. Tro hates good players. They only like social ones that show off costumes to girls. If player found a good method to farm nerf it. To GM nerf = balance

Thank you for your review and for being a long-time member of the TalonRO community! We’re sorry that you feel there is a lack a creative content - though we’d beg to differ with today’s recent release of an all-new seasonal event, the Wave Challenge custom instance, two new GMCs, and much more! Our monthly content updates certainly show that there has been a wide variety of new gaming content introduced regularly. We’d of course be happy to hear more about your suggestions in our forums also!

I say this is still the best low rate server all over the world. Classes are well balanced and Economy is Great. A lot of helpful people too. This server would be friendly to new players because people in main chat are helpful too. The GMs are also quick on their responses in the forums and that's nice. A lot of fun costumes here on this server. Definitely worth the time playing and investing money (donating) even in 2018. Highly recommended. -Apollo Crescent

I've been playing for a while and having a lot of fun. The server has high availability and is very stable. I had an account on 2014 and stopped played for personal reasons. When I came back in 2017, everything was still there. The economy is very active, to the point that something you try to sell would be undercut kinda fast. Prices are mostly dictated by TalonCoins (server currency) value of the item, when applicable, and I find those prices fair. GMs are very friendly and helpful.

I played RO from 2005 to 2010 on russian server - great time, massive WoE massacres, community and all other options that in total can be called "Old lovely RO". The thing is - only TalonRO *mostly* remind me that nostalgy, that time. That is most important for me. Else - in 2005 server crew was only 3 persons and on Talon the crew much bigger - 12+, if I count correctly. Quick answers, supporting and solving on my questions and probs included. Unique mini-events, mini-games spotted there too.
