Ragnarok 2 comes under new management, returns to active development

    
8

Good news for fans of Ragnarok 2 today: WarpPortal announced that it will be taking over the development of the game from Gravity Interactive. Previously, WarpPortal had been the publisher; now it will be the developer as well. Gravity had been doing very little with the game over the past couple of years other than taking down Ragnarok 2’s Korean server.

“We know that players have wanted updates, changes, and fixes with many aspects of the game for some time now,” WarpPortal said. “We are confident that taking over development of Ragnarok 2 will afford us the control necessary to achieve these goals.”

The company posted a list of projects and bug fixes that it intends to implement in Ragnarok 2 over the next few months, including new zones and “cringeworthy puns” from its CM staff. To celebrate the transition, WarpPortal is giving away refine stones to players who log in and play the game.

No … yes … kinda.
The game isn’t bad, exactly; just kinda … there.
the big problem is / was that the Ragnarok title was just tacked onto a game that had nothing in common with the first Ragnarok game, and then add on top of that that all of the developers who had worked on the first Ragnarok had quit a long time ago to make their own company.

Gravity really just tacked the name on as a cash grab, but once you get past that the game is pretty solid-casual grade MMO-ing.

most people couldn’t get past that, or wouldn’t, and Gravity closed down the game in Korea + stopped developing for it.

however, the game kept going in the west because Warp portal had singed a contract on it & still had enough western players logging in to be worth keeping open … as I said; it isn’t bad once you get past the part where it isn’t Ragnarok.

Didn’t Ragnorak 2 come out but was cancelled due to lots of negative player feedback, than re-released as something else different?

The game was a pretty good “alt” MMO for my gaming Mixtape … It just wasn’t anything like the first Ragnarok.
I think this news is very good for the game & hope that the new management (who actually gives a Shit about it) can dig it out of the hole that gravity kicked it into.

Yeah … Except nothing like that.
I can’t say it was anything I would play as a main title, but there wasn’t anything really wrong with it outside of it having fuck all nothing in common with the game it is supposed to be based on.
The biggest issue with it is how a lot of the early content requires a party, but anyone who is still playing it is high level.

I didn’t know there was a Ragnarok 2. From what I just saw in Youtube though, I haven’t missed anything.

Hard to believe people actually enjoy that game.  From the sounds of it it’s pretty much a watered down WoW clone in most ways.

Oh and here I thought all servers were shut down ages ago. Hard to see this as just a coincidence with Tree of Savior (the real RO2 in most peoples book) comming out now.
