Battle Bards Episode 101: Ragnarok Online

As the Battle Bards cruise into their second hundred episodes, it’s time to cover a very long-lived fantasy MMO from 2002, Ragnarok Online. The game has an… interesting soundtrack and a devoted following in some circles, but as the crew discovered on today’s show, the score is not without its criticisms. It’s time to kick summer vacation to the curb and trumpet another parade of MMO music!

Battle Bards is a bi-weekly podcast that alternates between examining a single MMO’s soundtrack and exploring music tracks revolving around a theme. MOP’s Justin co-hosts with bloggers Steff and Syl. The cast is available on iTunesGoogle PlayTuneInPocket CastsStitcher, and Player.FM.

I’m going to give this a listen tomorrow while driving and the memories are already flooding back just reading the track list

RO was a great game back in the day, but like all old games it has aged. I still think WoE was a fantastic mechanic and that the way classes genuinely being dependent one another in PvP was fantastic, but it is a very grindy game with fairly bland gameplay outside of WoE guild battles.
