The Ragnarok Online journey
Looks like the Ragnarok Online world resurfaced and has taken the online gaming community by storm. Ragnarok Online II: Legend Of The Second is a remake of Ragnarok online II: The Gate Of The World. This new remake brings back some of the original Ragnarok Online elements like the job system, monsters back into the game and considered the true successor to the original Ragnarok Online.
The Open Beta Test has started since January 3, 2013 for South East Asia, but with 2 servers Einherjar and Jormungand, players like myself are having a hard time logging especially on peak time due to the server’s capability. I hope this will be fixed once it goes to final version.
Ragnarok Online: Days in Chaos server
I started playing Ragnarok Online in 2005, I was at the second semester of my college studies in Kuching at that time. I remember every Saturday or every free day, I will go out as early as Wisma Satok and the cyber cafe on the third floor opens. The fee per hour is RM1.50, very cheap compare to KK at that time.
The game uses top up system, so I have to buy them before I started playing. At that time, the Ragnarok Online craze was rising rapidly, sometimes the cyber is full of only gamers rather than casual internet surfers.
Me and my friend always tags along to play, I started out at Lidia server before moving on to Chaos server to join up. I’m glad I took some screenshots every time when I play the game, here are some of the screenshots,
Ragnarok Online II: First step in Einherjar
I must say, if you want to play MMORPG game, the best ISP is still Streamyx. This game is not suitable for any mobile broadband from any telco, it will suck your bandwidth lightning fast!
The new game is all what it was hyped to be, but like I mentioned earlier, its hard to log in because many channels provided in any server is always full. Jormungand server was supposed to be for players from Malaysia and Singapore, but I can’t get in on any channels.
Last thing I know, I’m in Einherjar server, making my first character and the explore the new world. Later, the annoying lag happened and I can’t log in again after that, server full all the way. Here are some of the in-game screenshots I took during my first play,
Props for the game developer for making Ragnarok Online more beautiful, but please settle the server problem quickly okay? 🙂
The new world is here!!
