Hello everyone

 why "DarkRO" was so successful in the past? the reason is simple: the "StarsWars" theme and that was the difference.

we need the naruto theme of bandanas and hokages as they used to be.... and the main thing that was the jedi and sith classes.

everyone wants that nostalgia of playing "DARKRO" again

nobody wants to play with SL and Taek.

there is an asian server (Darkro Rebirth) with more than 2 thousand players because they copied the "DARKRO" server.
 

I think without Jedi and without sith = without players.

it's just my opnion and what do you have to say about that?

 

 

OBS:

sorry for my bad english, but I think you can understand.

thank you

What the hell is up with the +1s?
Prank did mention that the Jedi and Sith Classes are going to be implemented. It could happen or it could not. The server is really young and still on the process of balancing the common classes. DarkRO wasnt really just successful cause of the said theme. It was successful because it had a number professional staffs. Believe me, I love Jedi so much. Its still even all over my DarkRO Forum and I love Star Wars overall. I agree that it could play a great factor of increasing our population and increase the interests of the current players and the incoming ones, but not now I guess. Or Dazzu might have already readied the stuff.

I have been mulling about the idea since we started this project. It's something I have been very on the fence with for a number of reasons.

 

There have been numerous clones that attempted to mimic the original DarkRO and spectacularly failed. Additionally, Brenth has been selling old darkside (or whater it was called back then) source code to these copy cats. I firmly believe that the uniqueness of DarkRO has been permanently tarnished and anyone who tries to copy its uniqueness down to the letter is a deluded, uncreative leech. I get that people keep coming back to star wars themed HR servers because of nostalgia, and I completely understand that sentiment. We had the intention to eventually implement those classes. However, I feel like we'll be disrespecting the legacy of the original DarkRO and become no better than those other clones. Honestly, it's also why XIVRO's launch was delayed for months. We have tried hard to communicate with Matias and Maurice to revive the old server, and had made significant steps. Unfortunately things didn't pan out the way we had hoped.

 

Maybe we'll implement the classes in the far future. Perhaps, if we are extremely lucky, possibly re-establish contact with Matias and merge DarkRO and XIVRO. But at the present, adding these classes is low on the priority list.

Problem is this ain't DarkRO, it's now XIVRO. Having star wars based classes just doesn't match with the server name right now. As what Dazzu said let's leave as things be as to respect the legacy of DarkRO.

I know it's "XIVRO" but everyone is here because of "DARKRO" or am I wrong?

me and all Brazilians are here because of the old "DARKRO", and you too..I'm sure.

Truth be told, I'm not here because mainly because of DarkRO Force. Ngl, the Jedi and Sith classes were amazing and just out of the ordinary, props to Maurice and his team. 

I'm here because I saw the potential on the admin and his team way back when we were in Force despite that Matias failed a whole community by not stepping down as Maurice did when his real life outweighted his hobby(ain't saying childhood, we're all mature here. If you wanna see kids in action go to the other ripoffs).

And for what it's worth, we're doing hell of a lot better than the other DarkRO copies out there but don't let me be the judge, go ahead and try them out. 🙂

Actually on my opinion, that is the reason why XIVRO is a good server(or you can say better) because it didn't copy or carry the theme or the name of original DarkRO. It shows respect for the legacy of DarkRO we loved.
And yeah I'm here because it feels like the same RO I used to play but I choose to stay because it is not the same as before. 🏆

 

P.S. +1 to everyone

The truth has to be told, the XivRO server is made up of DarkRO players. DarkRO had a lot of public due to the differential of the Star Wars (Jedi / Sith) theme. However, if you do not want to put a difference and leave it with the original classes, it is necessary to at least balance and publicize the server.

Nobody here is trying to make XivRO just a copy, but a server with options to call new players. The vast majority are players from the past few years of Dark-RO Force, with some still joining DarkRO.

When we look at DarkRO Rebirth and see a constant number of 4000 players, we realize that something is doing right. As many as bots and stores must be, 1/4 are players (1000 on), this information was obtained by friends who went to see this server.

No copies of DarkRO went forward, but neither GameMaster tried to make a server as is happening in XivRO.

Unfortunately people are testing other servers and some are enjoying it, but they still believe in XivRO due to the fact that the Staff here has it.

+1 for everyone.

The reason why rebirth has that much players right now is that they did a lot of dirty work advertising in other private server communities, including ours. I definitely agree that we lack in the advertising department, which, truth be told, was our decision as we didn't want to put out an incomplete product and relied on word of mouth to gather the population we have now. However, we are definitely going to start properly advertising by the end of this week and hopefully former darkro players will try us out.

I have been in their server. Actually I have been invited there first before knowing that Dazzu's server was already up and running. 
I disagree that I am here because of DarkRO. Around 3 or 4 Guilds have invited me to play on Rebirth and I have played with them before for lengths of time but why am I here?
Why are you here? Despite it not having the Jedi and Sith Classes. Heck I even used to date a GM in Rebirth.

Take a look at this:

I have been into a lot of Servers and I do not want to invest any more time playing a game I love then in 3 - 6 months it comes down to nothing..
I am playing in XIV because I trust the Administration that this could last for at least 2 years and hopefully more. Rebirth had good even if dirty ads and strat.
There's no point in having 1000 active players if the server cant be stable. Even as of right now I am in groups of people in messenger, them saying theyre stopping and being discouraged about the status even after donating sums of cash. They went on the Hype Train of it being as Dark RO.
DarkRO aint coming back unless Matias miraculously left a timed message to Dazzu of taking over the server.
The best we can do right now is to help put more ideas of how to balance the current classes that we have as we play.

Just, think again.

Not really, I'm here mostly of nostalgia and free time due to COVID. Though I was hoping to meet my guildmates again. Unfortunately they're playing on the "other" server for the reason that it has more players. But I'll still keep my hopes up until we get more players.

how dare you

i'm applying to be gm just so i can ban you

 

rebirth is successful because they lie about being the official DarkRO remake. xiv doesn't advertise at all and still broke 100 players, which like 1% of servers ever do. I think we'll be fine without Jedi/Sith for a while.

not to mention that their population count is 100% fabricated

SL and Taek, nobody plays with it including the original server of gravity, totally forgotten jobs.

 

it's just my opinion, I think jedi and Sith is essential because that's what made the dark more interesting to play

all private servers are usually the same as always, but the dark was the only one that made the innovative difference and so it was successful.

 

and the naruto theme was also cool. (Hokages, Kakashi and ETC)

I don't think they're necessary as long as other content updates are made. Look at how cool the Star Glad update sounds. Anyway, servers like Nova and Talon reached thousands of players without ever having custom classes. Nova has the most active BG out of any server, including officials, so they're not missing PVP either.

I think our devs are doing the right thing by not getting tunnel-visioned on Jedi and Sith. In the meantime, they've done a lot of cool shit with the server because they haven't devoted themselves to remaking them. Flashy custom classes bring new people to the server, but they don't motivate you to spend time playing. Quality content does that.

XIV is innovating in different ways. Using the stale star wars classes that someone designed in 2005 isn't "innovating," it's just pandering to nostalgic players, and it won't last like real content updates. Having only custom classes and no real content to do == people only log on for woe because they have nothing else left to grind for.

I really enjoyed playing with jedi and sith, please dont forget to think about putting the class in the game. It would not necessarily have to be named Jedi and Sith you can change some things in the class so that it gets the essence of the server.

P.S +1 all

class/job is not the reason for the success of the server. its Mainly on the Server Gameplay , Balancing and etc. We need Staff visibility (Event and Etc.) Advertisment (once we finalize most of bugs and server crash) to avoid negative feedbacks. Reason why im here is not for Jedi/Sith Class,  I just want to see this server to be successful and Rebuild DRO community not the server but the players. we have before..
