@Arrow It was always a priority but like I mentioned before we're not going to advertise without having everything properly set up yet.

Just because we have to advertise and get more people to play doesn't mean we shouldn't stop development. That is not being efficient with time. I understand players are frustrated but that doesn't mean the staff isn't feeling it the same way. We probably are more frustrated than all of you because we're the ones managing the server and having to deal with all these issues that don't go public. 

You can do both advertising and development at the same time. But right now we will be focusing on what I mentioned in my earlier posts. We're also heavily under staffed and I'm sure most know already. But we care and feel for the server than more anyone so you can count on us working hard for what we love. If that's not enough then I don't know what to tell you guys.

That is true, and no one ever said that the development must be halted.

Here's another suggestion, please add staffs, the ones who engage in the community as they should be the people who build a harmonious community. I only see staffs/GMs in WOEs but not in the community. 🙂


Ngl, this feels like we're in the beta phase of the server. Being transparent on the work behind the scenes is one way to make us feel assured that something is going on and being progressed, not just "wait and see" or saying "soon" every now and then.

PS: Please hire one or two GM event from the previous recruitment, we need em bronze coins :d

We've always been transparent and the reason why it feels like a beta is because we keep adding content.

If we keep on adding content it kind of gives the effect of "This server is not complete because they always keep adding things." kind of like effect.. But that's because usually on other servers they're one and done and they don't have any other content to provide. That just means those servers aren't creative and can't provide anymore content than that.

For our server we will always continue adding content throughout the years because we have a lot of creative ideas and that's going to be the way to keep the server alive. If you take a look at rebirth and all the other copies they're just the same crap over and over again and they can't even think of anything else. Most of their stuff they even copy Dazzus latest content. 

There will be scheduled events soon every week so look forward to it. Hopefully everyone is more informed now. Please look forward to our future because it will be bright I promise. If anyone still doesn't feel assured or have any unanswered questions and doubts I don't mind answering them. So don't be afraid to ask!

With utmost respect, yeah there's rebirth with their same-old trash content and yet they look even more successful than XIV with tons of creative content. Ok. (not that im actually vouching for rebirth). 

The point really is, you guys can keep adding content, but don't forget about the server's exposure to let people know your server exists. Because right now it's like opening up a huge mall w/ tons of creative merchandise but it's located on some shady forest with only like 15 - 20 people know where it is.

Like i said before, the server seriously lacks exposure. Yes we did some advertising on RO groups but then we still ended up having low population which means it's not enough. I proposed the FB sponsored ads to try only for like $30 - $50 for a week but i don't even know if that was done. But then i hope it will be tried at the very least.

@Iroha I'm not even sure if you read any of my previous posts but you should read before writing since it's already been addressed for the sake of not recycling back and forths.

@Prank And again with utmost respect, is everything you've said will REALLY be true? Honestly, you keep promising a lot of stuff and ends up getting ignored after a few days or gets implemented so late from when you promised to implement it. It's always "soon, soon, in the future" meh.

- Short staffed you said, you tried to recruit me as probably a sub dev (and probably some others too) so where's the reply now? Is it "too late" to ask if im accepted? (LOL). I've been waiting already a month for it. And did you guys even accepted anyone on the 'Event GM recruitment page'? Good if yes.

- Before, you keep saying we're gonna advertise tomorrow etc etc whenever and the result, this? Ayt clear.

Sure you can continue addressing cool & fancy things about your "future creative ideas" (that ironically gave us false hope) but then remember the server still stays dead. So whatever, im out of this. I'll just observe from now on and won't reply further for the sake of not recycling what's already been addressed.

 

P.S

I wholeheartedly apologize if i sounded really rude but all message above was written with deep frustration. But yeah, just gonna hope for the best 🙂. Good Luck

I will come back here to say the same thing again,  don't change the game and keep your traditions !!

you ask me what has changed? MVP hunt, there are a lot of people who enjoy doing MVP alone and currently this is impossible !

of course you have to innovate and bring new things, but without changing the old game form ok? can you understand that?

"future creative ideas"

this is very good when it doesn't change the old game

 

I will show again, 3 videos this time:

 

 

 

 

 

here you just want to remove the gold room

 

a tradition must be maintained creating new things without changing the tradition of game

that's all i wanted to say to try to help staff

@Iroha I mean I get it and it's probably my fault for not getting to you about the recruitnent thing and addressing it properly in a private manner and I apologize for that. If that's something you actually really care about then you should probably message Dazzu about it and not me. 

I say a lot of this stuff because people want us to be transparent and not hide things from the public to know what's going on hence the topic of this in the forum. So if we didn't address it, people were going to be angry. Ironically even when we are addressing it seems some people are still being angry so for that I don't understand and will just have to live with it. 

I'm not a magician and things aren't going to come out right away due to circumstances that aren't in our control. 

The whole point of this topic was because we're moving forward with  big news (Officially obtaining the old darkRO and all its data). 

I had an entire post addressing advertisement and if you did read it then you would know that we weren't going to fully go out until everything was ready. Even if we did want to do paid Facebook Advertisement we can't. 

Why? It's because our Facebook page was banned for an unexplained reason alongside with my personal Facebook account. So we couldn't even do it even if we wanted to. 

I get that you're frustrated and it's not a competition but everyone is frustrated. I don't know what else to tell you. Whether you still genuinely believe in us or not that's up to you. It's understandable if you don't but this is all I can do for now and that's addressing our future. It's better then saying nothing right? 

@Shanx The gold room was a terrible design and was easily a abuseable. Even if you look at our current treasure map room it's just bad since people just macro farm anyways. We already came up with ways to gain zeny in other manners which seems more proper and non abuseable somewhat.

@Prank

the question is not the design or if it is abusable,

 is removing a story from the "DARKRO"

it's just because of the nostalgia 

I think you don't understand what I mean

@Shanxif that were the case then it would be getting back Sith and Jedi, which we are going to eventually. The Gold Room isn't what made DarkRO popular. It was the custom classes and all the customizations the founders did to each and every job class for a more fun PvP experience.

Again, nostalgia and tradition don't mean good. It's a terrible design choice, look at Rebirth already needing "black credits" to make trades in the trillions. Impenetrable market for new players due to absurd inflation.

This server is about taking DarkRO concepts and turning them into good design. Gold room isn't good design. It's just fuel for bots. Like when you got muted multiple times for afk macro farming it. How can you say it's good when you feel the need to cheat to abuse it? 🤔

stick on what you have and introduce new classes from the obtained files from darkro. dont circle back due to darkro rebirth’s success. 

it was a damn successful server and it will be very hard to replicate. There were 3 factors why they succeeded.

1. DarkRo name of the server itself 

2. They advertised hella good

3. P A N D E M I C

 

If you miss one, youre not only going to flop but you’ll lose your current server as well. money comes after dont chase it.

In order to have Jedi and Sith, SG and Taekwon would have to be taken out of the game, unsure if we have to if it's on newer clients though.

Dazzu and Yura have stated that Jedi and Sith will be added while Taekwon classes will stay in the game.
