    It seems that party gameplay unfortunately isn't big of a deal on this server, because there is little to no party exp bonus implemented.

    As I read through discord and forum threads, I noticed, that a decent amount of player would appreciate a party exp bonus for each party member, while other folks are against the idea and often use phrases like "you wanted the classic experience. There was no party exp in classic Ro."

    I also started a thread when I began playing on this server, because I asked myself why there were so few parties and didn't know at that time, that there was no party exp bonus. You can look it up here if you want to: https://eu.4gameforum.com/threads/664325/

    So maybe it is possible to get innova to think about the idea of adding a party exp bonus, even if there is none on RuRo as I read. Maybe they will notice if enough people are voting for it or maybe they will straight up ignore it there is no telling.

    But first I wanted to see if there is a need to implement the bonus at all or if the players are happy without it. Please feel free to share your thoughts on this topic.

    One of the greatest graces of Ragnarok is to group up with friends, clan mates or simply strangers, who often become new friends. The Brazilian community of which I am a part is a master and we love it, spending hours and hours on voice programs while we get up together, make time go faster and make the game less robotic! The European and Russian community should try this gameplay experience, if not their culture, and not criticize for maintaining this style of solo gameplay, where only bots are happy ...

    Yeah that's pretty sad actually. But maybe there is a small chance if enough players will vote for it and it's shown to innova. At least we tried then.

    I don’t know how about Europe, but in Russia this topic has already been raised to 4game, so it doesn’t depend on culture ... but you yourself know what, if a person is alone, he suffers in one way or another, and if he suffers, then he need medicine, and and and, where does he go after him?))

    I really wish there was something that incentivized party play, it only feels like everyone plays by themselfs because its faster and better

    Well I think this poll needs way more votes before it can be shown to innova. Right now only 53 people voted. This wouldn't be enough I guess..

    That's true. Tho classic RO also didn't have a P2W ItemShop and botched stats that made solo lvling easier. I doubt they're gonna change anything because they only want your money. Players grouping up would mean there's less need for P2W items, which would result in less people buying it.

    The meaning of MMO long lost what it stood for. There's barely any MMO nowadays that encourages people to party up. Every MMO I ever played was practically a Singleplayer game with other people running around and boring cutscenes. With the exeption of DAOC, RO and FFXIV, because those three either encouraged or forced you to party up.


    The only thing that can save this server is changing the CashShop items to something LESS P2W. Other games only sell costumes (without any effects like stats or skills on them) in their shop and it's working just fine. Or they just have to give RO an abo again, which would also prevent people from playing 3 accounts at once. I payed the abo back on the original classic, I would do it again if the server was worth it.

    (You can even make an Abo AND sell costumes on ItemShop. FFXIV does it and it works. And let me tell you, the Shop stuff is not cheap.)

    well its true "mmos" have much single player gameplay too. but the difference is, that you shall always be rewarded when you group up with other people.
    look at raids from other mmos .... you can only get the good items when you group up and help each other.
    sure there are people who may betray you but well ... i dont need to play a mm when I only play "all time" solo.
    thats not so far in ragnarok.

    Well the result of the poll and the overall opinion in this thread is clearly speaking for an exp bonus. Unfortunately I think that 87 votes are way too less to even get the attention of Innova. I mean I can try and write directly to one of the GMs refering to this thread, but there are like over 1k people on this server (I guess) and not even 1/10 voted. I hoped for a much bigger result to really get the attention to this matter..

    I don’t know what you’re talking about. I see people shouting about parties all every minute of the day, and I see a ton of partying in general. If you want to party, walk up to somebody and ask. An extra bonus would be cool, but to make it seem like there isn’t plenty of partying on this server is silly.

    The only parties I see are parties of like 6 people that get random invites and if they realize your lvl is too high/low they just kick you out again. Because apparently they don't know how the chat works.

    In Discord I see only LFPs over lvl 60. Dunno, maybe Snake Hat is not enough to solo end-game

    True! Exactly my experience with party play on this server. Completely different to Iro for example where there was party exp bonus and you had like 3 or 4 full parties at each major levelling spot.

    The overall game experience is really frustrating, a lot of issues are mentioned above (No party interaction, P2W Cash Shop...).
    No fun to play if they make it too obvious that they just want your money x3

    Additionally just noticed that everyday less and less people are playing. (Dungeons almost empty)

    I recently stopped playing on this server, yet i read the forums here from time to time to see what has changed.

    The reason for me was that playing in a party is not relevant, not even rewarding.
    So i walk around, leveling here and there but always alone.
    Joined a Guild to try to find some party members but they wanted to level alone because they are faster this way.

    So for me without mates it makes no sense to play here.

    There are more reasons why I quit but that didn't fit the post here.
