On April 24, 2018 an official post on the WarpPortal forums stated that all games and services to the European region will be terminated on May 25, 2018. 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. The catalyst for this seemingly abrupt decision can be traced back to 2016. Due to the changes of our company's service policy for the European regions, we are saddened to bring you news that, all games and WarpPortal services to the European regions listed below will be terminated on May 25th, 2018.

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.

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?
Less than a week after announcing that Rose Online would be shutting down, WarpPortal made it known via the official forums that development on Ragnarok Online 2 has ended as of January 16, 2019. The forum post made it clear that while development would cease, the game is not closing down. Players will be able to continue enjoying the game, but with no further events or updates. The cash shop will also remain open, meaning the studio currently has no plans to shut the game down. Since May 1st, 2013 we have explored Ragnarok Online 2 together. In that time, it has gone through many evolutions. It would not be what it is today had it not been for the community and the team who has worked hard every day to make it the best that it can.
