Having played this server for a few months now, it has become clear that the GMs want to remain 'neutral' when it comes to keeping the community from essentially verbally attack each other. GMs also very clearly verbally players in the main channel claiming "are just complaining" instead of being mature. Having GM'd on many servers, I've very aware of how stressful and difficult GMing can be, but that doesn't mean you can take your frustration out on players. Be an adult and GM, don't pick sides

OriginsRO offers a pleasant experience for what it offers - a journey through the classic times of Ragnarok. The server hasn't had the best of days lately due to decisions recently made by the staff - such as slowing down leveling and axing partying incentives - leading to a surge of solo players and multiclienting, compared to the booming partying community that used to exist before. The server now feels barren in contrast, as most players have switched to playing alone.

I tried giving this server a chance again, thinking that maybe the Staff had changed their ways of actually punishing their friends for constant harassment towards specific guildies and members. Nothing has changed. Favoritism is greatly presented. Instead they're telling people they don't like to leave. So much for that promised "reform". Individual harassment and abuse in #main is heavily present and not much is being done. Changes fit only for GM's circle friends. Until this changes I'm out.

Done playing this server. The server GMs have severe bias issue. People from one guild can get bullied/harassed and the GMs will done nothing but when it is someone they personally know or are friends with it is met with immediate action, which indicates a bias. After this review has been read a GM will reply to this comment stating "This isn't true and that we take serious action..blah blah blah" when in fact that is a lie.

The good: - There are donations, and therefore there can be no pay-to-win. - The server is fairly stable and many bugs have been fixed. - Very few bots. - Solid WoE The bad: - GMs are a bit of a grab bag depending on who you're talking to. Some are very unfriendly and petty. - If you're being harassed in main or discord, instead of taking action you're more likely going to be told to ignore and move on. If that doesn't work, it's your fault and you should shut up. Victim blaming happens often.

It is a nice classic trans server, which really lives to the classic gamestyle. Which still includes contents in a great time pace. I play here for 3 years. Unfortunately the server has grown really fast and with the growth came also the trolls, which are bad for the community. I do a lot fun parties, that isn't influenced by exp bonus at all. If there is a criticsm point, it would be for me the GM support in delicate matters and behaviour (not all GMs). My review points got less since last time

Thank you for your honest review! I'm sorry if you had less than great experiences with GMs, but I can guarantee that we're working hard on improving our ability to handle the amount of complicated situations that arise in a large server. Feel free to reach out to me if there are specific situations you're dissatisfied with. Haru

After playing since 2-2 jobs was released, Origins is the safest server by far. It's been going strong for years (2013?) now and hasn't dropped in quality. There is zero P2W. WoE always has new guilds coming in and out. Bad side? The updates. This is a progressive server, so we get episodic updates. Problem is, we get these updates every year or so. As of September 2020 we are on the Thanatos Tower update. The community is also very unfriendly, but that's to be expected in any high pop server.

Thank you for your review! We're trying our best to moderate the community, as we wish the server to be a welcoming and friendly place for everyone. Content updates are definitely not fast paced, but they're comparable to the official servers'. In the last 12 months we had some of our biggest updates (Rebirth, Geffenia, Kiel, Bio3 and the Halloween Event in Oct '19, Christmas Event in Dec '19, Abyss in Feb '20, Easter Event in Apr '20, Summer Event in Jul '20, Thanatos now in Sep '20)!

Extremely "old school" - just got Thana, 2 patches a year. Good: Economy is solid, no bots, no donates. People are mostly nice. Bad: Not newbie friendly, parties are pretty silent/static outside of guilds, no PvP, and WoE is trivial - 2 castles and the play style is.. weird. Noteworthy: GM is never online. No little events. Trans added last year and people still complain about it lol. Friendly people hidden here, but you gotta dig and grind pretty hard to find them. Find a guild ASAP on Discord!

Decent server with no cashshop and no bots. The economy is good and it's easy to start for beginners. There are no custom NPCs like warpers or job changes. Unfortunately there isn't much else to do either. No parties except for super boring static ones, everyone plays solo, pvp is dead, no battlegrounds, no godlike items, mediocre woe, no group-based content like endless tower, no instances or monster hunt... You run out stuff to do pretty quickly. I wrote a more in-depth review on the forums.

It's a nice server, rate-wise. Classes are pretty balanced (Though some are bugged). Nothing too OP. WoE is active and Guilds really get in to it. MvP hunting is very active as well which is really fun. But, there's is one negative thing about the server. It's that the community (unfortunately, it includes SOME GM's...) can be very toxic sometimes which may or may not end up pushing you away. But if you're used to the toxcity that the community delivers, then you should be alright I guess.
