Does Ragnarok Online 2 have a pay to win system? I’ve asked around about this and the best answer I’ve been able to come up with is “in a sense, yes, but nothing drastic.” I ask this because Ragnarok features a VIP system, similar to that found in games like Age of Wushu, where players can pay in for some perks. Unlike those games, however, Ragnarok cuts straight to the point by offering straight stat perks: +5 to stats, +10% health, +10% sp, and +20% movement speed. I ask because the opinion seems pretty split between people who are calling it pay to win, although virtually none of them are speaking from any actual experience playing the game, and people who are playing and stating that the bonuses are insignificant to the point where they don’t do much more than keep your character alive another millisecond before they die. So the conclusion I’m seeing on discussion boards is that the system is pay to win, in theory, but in practice isn’t … [Read more...] about [Community] Is Ragnarok Online 2 Pay To Win?

An IP block will then be put in place to prevent EU players from accessing WarpPortal titles. Services to Russia and CIS countries (such as Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova) will continue as normal.

One of the MMO industry’s long-time institutions is finally calling it a day in Europe. Ragnarok Online announced this week that it is shutting down all of its servers on the continent as of May 25th. The odd part about this story is that this sunset is happening not because of declining population or revenue but because of a new law that the game’s operator was not able to circumvent. Operation in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States will not be affected. The move comes because of the rollout of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation on May 25th, a law which addresses exporting personal data outside of the EU. WarpPortal apparently decided that it wasn’t worth the cost to upgrade storage security to meet the new regulations and chose to shut down the game instead.
