(Closed) Is Ragnarok Online 2 fun?

70 Comments - Created by sublyMs 1 year ago

Well in about an hour Ragnarok Online 2 will be out on Steam. Is it worth playing or not? I've never played the first. Do I need to or is it completely difference? Do lots of people play it?

F2P.... probs not

Just because its F2P doesn't mean its bad.

P2W Usually isn't fun after a certain point.

Necroblight

Still doesn't mean the game is bad. It just means that the devs want a bit of money for making their game free to play for all.

sublyMs

If you are fine with throwing the money then it's ok, but if you can't afford to do so then the game can get very frustrating, and that's the bad part.

F2P doesn't mean P2W. Fallacy of False Cause.

iamjellyman

i read somewhere that it gets very p2w

DavidThataway

All F2P games become a P2W at a certain point in the game. Or at lest most of them.

Necroblight

(1 year ago*)

You didn't play many F2P games, did you?

dooder39

I did, back in the days.

Necroblight

(1 year ago)

I would do it again if I were you, P2W is more rare then back in the days.

dooder39

That is good to hear.

Necroblight

(1 year ago)

For someone who hasn't played very many F2P games recently, how do you justify making such a broad generalization about F2P games?

iamjellyman

(1 year ago)

If I was wrong with my assumption then I take back my words, can't argue with someone who is more knowledgeable in that scene, I was simply making my assumptions on the primitive notion that nothing can be truly free.

Necroblight

(1 year ago)

Thats right, nothing is truly free, even if you get a free game, you have to pay for the internet to download it.

dooder39

(1 year ago)

Just because it is free, doesn't mean it's bad. From my experience, Tera is better than Guild Wars 2.

GW2 is better tha TERA sorry

Tera is better than GW2, GW2 sucks.

What an argument. Neither side even stated why they thought their game was better. I applaud you guys.

Tf2 is f2p... Vindictus is f2p... (bad developers but still fun) Realm of the Mad God is f2p... Shall I go on?

tf2 bad devs, wat

badaboom

Reading comprehension, dude.

MrCastiglia

(1 year ago)

no comma after tf2 description so it could have meant that both had bad devs

badaboom

(1 year ago)

I think it was clear enough.

MrCastiglia

(1 year ago)

There was an ellipses, but there was also one after Vindictus as well, so that's not as relevant as it could be.

iamjellyman

(1 year ago)

Vindictus Devs, I think.

iamjellyman

(1 year ago)

The developers of Vindictus aint bad, the pubpisher is.

It's fun because it was catered for casuals. (It was dumbified)

But not fun for the real/hardcore players of RO1. It's now a lower class WOW clone. IMO, It's on par on flyff

You posted this as I was typing my response... A FlyFF clone - worse than a WoW Clone!

I enjoyed the first game, but the second one looks like it's bought into the WoW clone hype. I'll download it to give it a go, but I'm not going in with high expectations. Maybe it'll be good enough to change my mind! I'll let you know if it does.

badaboom (1 year ago)

Still think RO1 is better

Yup.

Play EVE.

I wouldn't ever play a game that requires a monthly subscription.

sublyMs

(1 year ago)

You can pay it with in game money.

MrCastiglia

(1 year ago)

not at the start, and only if your playing that all the time

Jone991

(1 year ago)

AFAIK it's quite easy to do so. And you can get help and there's like a 30 days trial. So you can play it for free.

MrCastiglia

(1 year ago)

Which requires you to dedicate your life to it. What if you only wanted to play it occasionally? Now you're stuck working for the game.

MMO

Ocasionally

Pick one.

MrCastiglia

(1 year ago)

I did. That's why I play Guild Wars 2 and not expensive crap like EVE. ^^

MaximumBunny

(1 year ago)

:( I want GW2 but I only have $50. Can't find it for that cheap...

sublyMs

(1 year ago)

I got it during an Amazon special for just $29.99. Great deal. You can pick it up for around $45 on greenmangaming during its sales.

First Ragnarök Online all the way through. Won't probably bother with this one.

Seibitsu (1 year ago)

Enjoyed a lot the first one but this one seems, well like every other MMO.

Muttadactyl (1 year ago)

I played RO1 for around 6-7 years maybe longer. Made a lot of friends so when RO2 came out I got spammed people asking if I was or for me to play but I was busy the first week and when I got around to playing I couldn't find anyone who still wanted to play after the first week so I took that as a sign that is RO2 was as bad as the last.

FapFap (1 year ago)

RO1 forever

Reace (1 year ago)

I played it just for the nostalgia. Didn't even make myself get to the max level because it gets boring for me. I really think RO1 is better, regardless of the difference in graphics.

Syran (1 year ago)

RO1 for Steam!

Gummydrop (1 year ago)

I played the shit out of RO1. In fact, I kinda want to play it again now!

darko55 (1 year ago)

I played it, it's pretty fun with friends.

Ib (1 year ago)

Vetchems (1 year ago)

I'm in 2 states of mind whether or not to even bother trying it.

Effort (1 year ago)

Haven't tried it yet but will eventually. Looking back at RO 1, I just remember a lot of spamming skills and grinding for cards, slotted weapons and upgrading them. I wonder if it'll be like that for this.

Detno (1 year ago)

I beta tested it and it's not TERRIBLE or anything... but it ain't that good either. The gameplay itself is extremely generic, graphics are nothing special, quests are pretty cookie cutter, there's some grinding and I think that honestly a lot of the appeal hangs on seeing some of the classic RO1 things in a 3D world. That said, MMOs are best near launch so it might be worth a try just to see tons of people and how the game develops.

If you are REALLY interested I'd just play a bit of the first RO if only so you have some shared experience with the fans of the original that will surely flock to the new one, plus the original game's sprite art is beautiful (or at least it was at the time).

Could RO2 serve as a "My first MMORPG" for people new to the genre?

QuartzPort

(1 year ago)

Hmmm... maybe with some reading on it or if you are not planning on going super seriously at it. It has a bunch of stuff like stat AND skill allocation, slotting cards in equipment and the Khara system that are not very common in MMOs and might take people by surprise, plus the fact of the matter is that the game is pretty new even in Korea so it's prone to have massive changes at some point (not saying it will, but it's a possibility).

Another issue is that the game has actually gone through a bunch of revisions, including a full remake, so information you might find might not even be relevant to the final game; That and I don't actually know how good the translation of the Steam version might be and if it's not great that will only add to the confusion.

If you are willing to just go at it and look up some basic beginner guides, it'll probably be fine. If you want to get others into MMOs then honestly something like World of Warcraft might be better if only because it's a well established game with ample information on it.

I think RAN Online will be the best MMO that is suitable for first timers. Very easy to learn, the quest are really worded nicely so you get a better understanding on the motif of the MMO.

It's very punishing in the middle parts so It teaches you the basics on how risky it is too venture outside your comfort zone and just stay where you are safe. Also teaches you the importance of a party, It's much easier to party in ran online compared to other games because the quests are divided and focused in one area so you'll be able to find people with the same level as you are, makes you socialize better.
