Fun overall for PvM but PvP is 99.9% of the time empty any time of day. Some GMs i've encountered are ok while others feel less so. The community is quite helpful and likeable yet like every other place there are some bad eggs. MVPing may be a bit too competitive for your average player since MVP tombs feel like they are camped 24/7 causing monopolies to rise on some item drops which again, takes away some fun for casual players. To recap: PvM: Fun PvP: *cricket noises MVP: *Rich Uncle Pennybags

OriginsRO tries to stick to the "original" Ragnarok but they have some changes that affect balance. @autoloot is implemented that allows range characters and mobbers to farm much faster. Why make a rouge or assassin when you can make a hunter that farms much quicker since you don't have to walk up to your loot to pick it up? @autoloot makes it imbalanced since range characters farm much faster. Almost every 'seasoned' player has a slave priest following them around, discouraging partying.

Server used to be active during first covid pandemic ; Nowadays, server is less played and you'll always meet the same players, there not that much parties since the "nerf" of "party bonus", most of players do prefer to solo play cause exp is way better. There no endgame, once you geared yourself, wich takes like 3 months, you get bored. Melee class don't exist for WoE, people meme them... Main chat community is mostly toxic,some are nice, else some get bullied, and lot constantly trolls...

I enjoy OriginsRO a lot. The new event was well thought out and designed so big kudos to the team. It's close to official play, although I spend most of my time soloing as a preference. Getting a party on my linker is hard! Staff are mostly helpful. They listen and are handling a lot, so what they do is appreciated. WoE is terrible and cliquish, with bad behaviour from the community both inside and outside the game. Few guilds (about 3) take part in WoE due to goals and number differences

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
