OriginsRO claims to be the closest thing to the original RO experience, yet the Dev team keeps 'fixing' stuff that didn't need fixing in the first place ie. party exp, cards effects (hello Hunter Fly Card) etc. A LOT of RMT going on behind the scenes and GM involvement in shady business I won't go into details here, ahem GM Ischia. Super toxic behavior that is 90% of the time overlooked by the GM team and overall, favoritism for some players. Stay away.

Thank you for your review, but please check your claims! The Hunter Fly Card was an official bug fix, not a customization. While we diverge a little from official (other than for QoL improvements) - it's all listed in the FAQ on our website and wiki - this isn't one of those cases. As for GM Ischia, she is no longer a GM, since half a year ago. We're strongly set against RMT and we constantly ban sellers and buyers, no matter how unpopular that makes us among cheaters and pay2win player circles.

Good Things: Low lag, Good Stability, No bots, No cash shop. Bad things: Many skills don't work correctly. Blinding mist doesn't blind monsters, Whirlwind lets lov hit cecils, Fiberlock works on land protect, etc. Woe castle drops severely nerfed and god items are removed leading to a boring meta where people just gvg rather than take the castles. The staff is often rude, dismissive and are bad at communicating. They make arbitrary decisions with no player input. Harassment often goes unchecked.

Ive been playing in this server for a while, which is why i want to let everyone know what it is actually like so you can avoid the investment waste i have done. I will be clear and sincere, this server is straight up corrupted, GMs can ban you without any proof of anything and for any reason that they want. They will target people that aren't convenient for players they are friends with and ban them, they banned me in the game for typing a bad review here. Do not waste your time in this server.

Hello. Please stop review-bombing seeking revenge for your ban - a ban from our Discord community as well as a 3 day temporary ban in game, for sexist/misogynist remarks against another member of our community. On a side note, making additional accounts on RMS in order to submit multiple review is against the terms of service as far as I'm aware.

At first, it was a great low rate server with decent pacing. You had the grind but parties and exp bonuses helped. The economy was decent manly thriving off WoE guild supplies and end game gears. Unfortunately, over the past few months uncheck community bullying, GM decisions and exp changes has lead to low WoE participation (stagnating the economy) and an open GM discouragement to large parties has flattened group party opportunities. Many friends continue to exit this server over these issues.

Hello, thanks for your review. It's very misleading to say that GMs discourage large parties when we have a custom bonus for large parties (parties of 12 players with no multiclienting currently receive 220% the normal experience, making it comparable to a 11.25x rates server for them)

No donations. No cash shop. There is literally no way to donate to the server, which is weird for a pserver yet awesome. No bots seen in the three years that I played. PvP is completely dead and inactive. WoE has only two open castles, two 50+ player guilds competing for nerfed castle treasures and no god items, giving zero incentive for small or new guilds to participate. As of 28 Sep 2020, party system has been heavily customized with exp penalties that discourage partying and reward soloing.

Hello, thanks for your review. It's incorrect though to say that the party system has been heavily customized, when referring to a tweak of a custom additional bonus that we were giving to parties on top of the normal exp. There is absolutely no penalty, but rather there is a +125% exp bonus for parties of 12 real, non-multiclienting players (for a total of 220% of the standard 5x rates, down from the 275% we had before the last update - that was excessive).

Went from enjoyable server to absolute trashfire pretty quick. The new GMs they recruited are on absolute power trips and not neutral towards players whatsoever. Heavily nerfed out partyplay with their last update. Veterans thrive solo/duo while newbies get screwed over because they don't have the gear or characters to level effectively in high lvl dungeons. WoE/PvP guilds and players get ignored and not catered to at all. Custom changes to old content we know. Not much "origins" anymore imo.

Thank you for your review! That's quite harsh on the new GMs that are doing a great job handling an unprecedented amount of reports, even if that makes them unpopular in certain circles. We can't turn a blind eye on grief play or cheating. Feel free to reach out to us if you have suggestions or feel excluded by our game balance choices, but please remember that our base rates are 5x, not 50x! The economy seems healthy enough for new players to gear up in a time reasonable for a Low Rates server.

Since the last update on september 2020, the game has totality changed. It's now way more time consuming to reach the level 99 since the exp bonus at bio3 has gone, and it's harder to get any leveling parties. I would not recommend this server anymore.

Thank you for your review. You might want to check out the last update, since, based on feedback we decided to undo some of the controversial changes, or at least aim for some middle grounds. The custom party bonus is back in Bio3 (even if not as much as in other maps - and this is because we strongly believe that the higher a map's exp yield is, the less we need to add custom bonuses to it to make it a viable leveling place), and the bonus scales again to 12 members instead of 8.

Server should be called NerfRO because that's what you can expect from the GM's besides the rare content updates. Bio3 exp got heavily nerfed along with other popular leveling maps, but established players had 10 months to enjoy the exp. New players are out of luck. Now to do Bio3 ppl are doing tiny parties with Mr. Kim/MS and multiclienting. I enjoyed the server before but GMs nerfing everything is getting tiresome and it's unfortunate. I hope they will reconsider how they nerf future content.

The server started good some years ago, unfornately, due to no donations, GMs work for free, this means too much time to released patches, no GMs online and lack of basic knowledge. The community numbers evolved during the covid phase, but, unfornately, the server is dying once again. To check macros, GMs compare the rate of attack on a valid target against targets that just entered a portal and haven't yet respawn (I guess that's what the last reviews are about). Overall, not originsRO anymore.

Your assumption of how the staff detects macro usage is incorrect, please do not listen to rumors. We never ban people for macroing without clear and substantial evidence. We're very sorry that you're upset a friend of yours was banned, but we do not tolerate cheaters.

Low rate server which takes so much time and effort to farm only to be banned by GM's for something as silly as sharing your pc with a friend. Rules make no sense and GM's are high on power, no consideration for players and their time and efforts. Play if you wanna waste your time onky to be banned later because you start getting better than GM's friends, and be given a lame reason for being banned. Mine was that i shared my PC with a friend after 2 years of playing this server.

Player was banned half a dozen times for botting and went on to tell the staff that he'd keep coming back to bot.
