Leaving in disgust. Long time player for many years on this server and im at a loss of words for what the people in charge do to this "classic" server. It all started with Project Idunno which broke almost everything on release. Now the game and stability get worse with every update and the admins dont understand that if you play on a server for over 3 years you might have characters with identity but the updates f'ed up all palettes, skills and effects. Events are designed for timesink NOT FUN

Where to begin. For starters, tRO is not a "classic" server and does not pretend to be one. If you played for 3+ years you would have known that. Project Iduna was simply us going from an outdated eAthena emulator to rAthena, which 95% of the servers use. All skills, effects, etc, are the same as every server out there. On top of that we fixed a ton of bugs that nobody else fixed yet, which actually makes us closer to official mechanics than rAthena itself even. That said, thanks for your review

Economy is horrible. Game instances getting more difficult to play that newbies can't even participate. GMs aren't considerate to their players. Whenever someone tries to speak up about an issue regarding the game they'd be shut down immediately and even get kicked out on TRO discord. GMs only become somewhat active whenever the server rating goes down like hosting mini events and do server announcement to write a review to boost up the server rating. GMs neglect issues regarding cyber bullying.

Such a bug has not been reported by anyone. If you feel that you found a bug, please report it to us including the specifics of it. Then we can have a look at it :-) So far you are the only one to mention such a thing though. In any case, we hope you find a server to your liking. Cheers.

Played talon for years, used to be fun until Iduna's patched. Lots of bugs were introduced, and in the process of trying to fix them, they introduce more bugs and break game mechanics that have been there since the very beginning. The GMs are out of touch, that's why they do not understand when players voice their concerns and dismiss them as if it were nothing, turn a blind eye to problems brought up to them, and pretend they do not exist. Caters to people they favor. Lost empathy for players.

Reviewer seems to be part of the same group that's review bombing us. "Iduna" basically just means rAthena, which 90% of the servers out there use. We used to be on eAthena which was outdated and buggy, so we updated to 2021 standards. On top of that, we have fixed a large amount of bugs that the rA team did not even work on yet. So whatever "bugs" you are speaking of will be part of any server out there. Please let us know on our Bug Report forums if you find any more and we'll try to fix them~

Admins stated they wanted to be as close to official as possible in terms of official mobs but they derailed far from everything. Full of unfixable bugs and there are cheaters that are left to run loose. Bugs that are fixable but the admins refused to listen to others and think its indented in official when its not. 1/10 would recommend to play really. They claimed its 90% like rAthena , but in reality, its not.

Reviewer seems to be part of the same group that's review bombing us. That's fine. Anyway. Nobody said we are 90% like rAthena. Not sure where you got that from. TalonRO runs rAthena, just like 90% of all the other private servers out there. We have, additionally, fixed a large majority of bugs that rAthena has not bothered with yet, so we are much, much closer to officials than most servers out there. Thanks for your review nevertheless~

New emulator is unfun to play on and full of bugs. When you try to report a bug the staff will tell you without a hint of irony that it's a feature and is working on its official behavior but fear not, if enough people are loud enough they will fix it but will make it look like it took weeks of work when in reality they just changed a parameter in a config file. Cheats run rampant. BG is a total disaster, prepare to grind and spend your life there for crumbs. No game-competent players on GM team

tRO runs rAthena just like 90% of the servers out there. We have fixed a large amount of bugs that the rA team did not even work on yet. So not sure where you are coming from with that. Cheats do not run rampant. Quite the opposite. And BG is active every single day with large groups playing. We have a great population with lots of events and new activities all the time. Be sure to try it out everyone. The summer event is hip and happening~

Used to really enjoy tro. Didn't play for a while and tried to play again and quickly remembered why it's so frustrating. They introduce updates that might as well be bugs and broken mechanics that miss their goals and patch ways players have control over their gameplay. Cheating is easy. Kick you from Discord if you sound too negative to them when you voice concerns. They don't understand the player perspective and what they're really doing and will be really nasty to you if you bring this up.

The GMs are incapable of handling players' concerns.Several of my friends got ban without reasonable explanation.Even though my friends did nothing wrong,when confronting the GMs they insisted on their verdict and provided no room for discussion.They have donated thousands of dollars to the server and this is the reward they got.Due to bad management, the players on the server had dropped drastically from 2000 to less than 1000.I would not recommend playing this server. Play at your own risk.

We recently banned a few players who were selling Zeny on websites such as www.t*****dia.com and www.c*****ell.sg. The evidence for the RMTing was irrefutable, regardless of what this reviewer is posting. Keep in mind that while donations are appreciated, they do not put you above the rules. Everyone is treated equally on tRO and if you break the rules, you face the same punishment as every other player, (past) donator or not. Thanks for your review nevertheless.

PVP room is inactive. WOE dying. You waste so much time to farm equips, but ended up cant use it other than farming, cause PVP is dead. Each patch GMs increase the difficulty on instances, they crush market by changing different stuff. Buying and selling more difficult, people become more salty. the price of Talon Coin keep decreasing. The GMs dont play the game, they dont understand how hard it is to actually grinding and hunt rare items, only ended up unable to sell it. Dont play this game.

While PvP rooms might not be used that much, BG is very active, so I would suggest trying that out instead. Some instances had an exploit fixed which made parties complete them too easily. That wasn't just something to make it more difficult. We have several GMs who play the game that report on matters happening in-game, so that we can make the most informed decisions we can. :) Thanks for your review nevertheless.

This is one of the worst server I am unfortunately playing The GM's do not ban any racist calling. The GM are involved in Cyber bullying by teleporting ppl and killing them and threatening them The GMs silence people without knowing both sides. THis has happend to many of my friends as well

This player was muted a short time for skill spamming in town, bothering other people, even after being told to stop. I am sorry, but if you willingly ignore the server rules, there will sometimes be consequences. In this case it's a short mute.
