overall a good server to join if you want some nostalgic ro experience, there's no donation system. general population is friendly aside from few individuals, expected in online community. gms have good intentions. they also try to stick with official settings, but confirmed that custom balances may be made if they feel it's for better of server. personally i dislike inconsistencies and while it's easier said than done, would like to know all foreseeable changes as early as possible to save time

RetRO has been great for the most part. The GMs are super friendly and helpful. The population has declined to around 50 average recently and public parties above lvl 60 are non-existant. Economy is okay but could be better. WoE has only 3 guilds playing with a Saturday night timeslot for EU. The community discord is sadly quite toxic with no in-game repercussion. Some balance changes have been questionable ie DEF and Trap changes. I really liked the server but it is quickly losing its charms.

This server is envisioned to be the same as euRO circa episode 6. While the server hardware and networking performs well, several major differences exist between this server and officials that harm that vision. First is the extremely low population. It is very hard to find parties at mid to high levels, woe is stale with only 3 guilds, and the economy is unstable. Second are customizations for "balance". Third is lack of events. Do not recommend starting here unless you have friends here.

I've been playing on here for about 3 months now. Pretty fun, getting a real RO experience. The community is great, lots of helpful players. At the right time a party can be found very easily. The staff/GM are helpful and available.

The server is European, but i play from Brazil and iam finding several South Americans on the server, im happy cause i play calmly without lag. The server is visually clean (no visuals), real nostalgic. The staff until now answered all my questions on discord, as well the community being receptive. Server is even quite active. I hope it stays Old Times for a while.

Update: I played this server for a month and staff will deny I did because they cant take criticism. Red flag. Tried to like it and live with the exp exploit over time but I cant. The more I played here the more I realized that the dmg has already been done and this server is hopelessly imbalanced. Depressing to spend hours leveling knowing that favored guilds powerleveled tons of WoE chars and no one got in trouble. The go-to PR lie from staff it that it was official behavior but its not true.

We do not favor anyone, be it guild or player. As far as you talk about players taking advantage of bugs while gaining experience, that is not correct. We had the official behavior regarding experience of slave mobs and players took advantage of this official mechanic. The fact that this is now common knowledge, has been proven several times, your only other review is for our competition and was given 5 days ago, and your detailed ratings for us suggest that you are just review bombing.

The best classic and most official like RO pServer Experience you can get at the moment. GMs are nice and competent and fix occurring bugs quickly. There are seasonal events and you always find a party to level with. Economy works great and WoE is very competitive. 3 castles being held by 3 different guilds at the moment. Hands down, best pServer I played in the last decade. Community is insanely friendly and newbies get lots of help, if they want it.

RetRO is the most ballence and classic ro I've ever tried in a longgg time. if you feel tired of trying high rate server that makes you level alone, I think you should try RetRO. You will never level alone since many party in sageworm and other maps. The Halloween event will come soon, so join us and WOE scene seems great too here and competitive. Come join us!

This is back to original hardcore grind RO experience that I've been looking for since 2004. Playing solo here at the moment but I never feel alone, maps that are not too popular are not empty (like bib dun01/02). Discord community is alive and everyone are just friendly. Economy is good and as a new player I can get things going, for example selling cheap red pots. Everyone is so chill and Discord community is fun. Kudos to server owners for giving this classic RO experience. Come join!
