I played the server since beta, it was very promising. I looked over several bugs, thought it was just some starting issues and they getting fixed soon. Well, the bugs occured again and again, the server went down for several times. The admins werent online for quite some time now, so one could reach them. 90% (or more) of the servers population left, even GMs resigned because they cant reach the admins. TL;DR: server bugged, admins left, dont play here

Hi guys. I'm server traveling trying to find the right home for me, and for now I'm trying Balance Ro. It's been a lot of fun, and I just hit 82 Mastersmith. The server averages 100 people after a new opening (less than 1 month), and seems to keep going up. GMs are active, and that's great. Economy is shaping together still, a tad wonky. All donation items are questable, but the quests are a little excessive. Nothing insane, but a good grind. I think this is a great server.

Joined this server with high expectation knowing they have team and turned out to be a disappointment. The worst server I ever played with unlimited bugs and constant map crashed despite it went BETA. A lot of custom scripts that cause bugs and were abused by players for personal interest(Blue sold to npc from BG) which then made the server broken. Donations are overpriced (50$) and not the usual prices you will see in RO servers. Quest-able but would take you weeks or even month/s to finished.

Pretty nice server with a decent population and tons of nice features. Stability issues have gotten a lot better recently as well. Economy is kind of broken right now, tons of shops but the prices seem to be inflated, and the sell price on certain items is halved so it's harder to earn money. Donation items are kind of P2W, they're questable but require multiple mvp drops, some from Nidhoggr even, an exorbitant amounts of Z (100m). The server is run by champs quad logging, asura spamming MVP's.

I didnt play Ragnarok Online for ages. Finally i found a great server with friendly GM Staff and members. Try this server and you wont regret it, bring friends so we can do larger party groups( like endless tower), etc. Classes are balanced. I read in other reviews this server is "pay to win", THATS NOT TRUE!! you can get the same items in donation doing quests. Join and have fun! Cheers Thank you guys for having nostalgia back!

I've got to disagree with the earlier, lower ratings. I've not noticed the server being unavailable in my area much at all. It went down for 1 minute for a refresh yesterday, but was back online as soon as you could get logged back in. I always see BG messages actively going. Class balance is RO...it's all the same. Economy seems good. Community friendliness is better than I've ever seen. 3 guys were helping gear a new player in Main chat today. This is a nice server. Try it out!

Horrible stability and lag for a large pool of players, as well as proxy issues from day 1. Community is okay but I have seen much better. Overall, the staff could do a MUCH better job handling the server. The economy isn't doing too well, neither is guild competition, only a few guilds present. Class balance, I gave a 3 because of Donations. The server is blatantly P2W ($50 for a LBHs/RWC), which, is probably detouring guild growth. I expect people to soon move to a "newer/better" server.

If we were a P2W, as you are saying, why would we make EVERY Donation item questable? The donation prices are justified by our server features. If you'd like, please take a look at this link: http://forum.balance-ro.com/index.php?/topic/174-cash-shop-prices/ There is an on-going discussion on the forum about the Donation Prices and you'll find a reasonable explanation by our team there. Thank you for your review.

started playing this server 4 days ago. already amazed by it. GM's always online in game or on discord. if there's problem its solved in a second. server's balanced, if it will grow to 300-500 perma online it will rock hard, believe me;)

The NPC bugs were not our fault, it was due to a host fail, it was quite unpredictable and it was solved as fast as we could. The server was fully functional a few hours after it first started happening. Regarding the event, only 2 of the 25 questions could be considered to be for "veterans". So I think it's a bit of an unfair review on those two points you mentioned. But thank you for taking your time to review us, hope to see you in game so that we can prove we're worth of your time!
