FAQs about Ragnarok Online Philippines’ Relaunch

Ragnarok PH CBT is Coming on June 2017! The Closed Beta Testing (CBT) of Ragnarok Online Philippines will happen in the middle of June 2017. This was announced in last Friday's Q&A Session with no less than Kamphee "Ken" Piromward, Managing Director of Electronics Extreme, and Johnny Paek of Elite Global Sourcing.

The duo also answered questions from members of the media, bloggers, Guild Masters, and Ragnarok enthusiasts regarding the server settings and what to expect in the upcoming relaunch.

Here are some of the information that we got from the Question and Answer session with Kamphee "Ken" Piromward and Johnny Paek:

  • Multi-Client (up to 5) will be allowed. This could mean that you can set up your shop in one client while grinding for materials in another client. 
  • There will be no Ragial marketplace or RO Player Database (ROPD) bot roaming around to collect data. Selling and buying items will be done in the old-fashion way
  • There will be an anti-bot program from Finland. The system is protected by Protected By EasyAntiCheat. As of this writing, there are no solid proof of the existence of Bots in the Thailand servers.
  • It will be a Free-to-Play, Free-to-Win (F2P-FTW) server with no IMBA item in the cash shop. All Key-items could be dropped in game. All you need is teamwork and assiduity.
  • No VIP service. That would mean no monthly subscriptions.
  • Item mall will mostly consist of costumes. There will be some rental items but most items will be permanent.
  • Rate of server is 1x (both experience and drop). 
  • All items that used to be obtained via cash shop before (with the old publisher LUG) will be available in-game. Even Bubble Gums will be obtained from activities in-game. Again, all you need is teamwork and assiduity.
  • Support for the game will be via chat. Improved customer service and a real-time response is expected.
  • No instance dungeon (MVP). The game promotes equality of the players.
  • Top-up card will be available for players’ convenience. As long as you have access to sellers of top up cards or you own a credit card, you can purchase from the item mall.
  • There will be no IP restrictions. Anyone from anywhere can technically play at the new server. Old players who are overseas can still play the online game they love.
  • The game will be launched for PC version only. No native Mac support (unless there is Windows inside Mac) or mobile version. However, there is an "official" Ragnarok game already launched for mobile, this is not the same with what will be launched for PC this year.
  • There will be no double standards. GMs will have no access to in-game items and all GM items will be reviewed by the Thai publisher. The GMs function will be limited to player support.
  • Closed Beta Testing will be in the middle of June 2017 and the Open Beta Testing will be announced after the CBT once it’s perfect. Pre-registration pahse for CBT is now ongoing, head on to the Ragnarok ONline PH official site to create your account.
  • Godly items. Godly items will be released soon.
  • Guild allies will be allowed. 
  • Server settings will be Revo-Classic. Philippine server will be very similar to the Thai server. As they say, where the joy and balance meets. 
  • Guides. The publisher will provide basic quest information but monster information and monsters location is highly encouraged to be learned during the CBT.
  • There will be no simulator for a 7 vs 7 match in the game. Players are encouraged to join the real-life events that will be held in different parts of the country. On that same note, bring back Ragnarok World Championships!
  • There will be no instant job change. You have to do it the old way.
  • There will be two CBT servers. These will be known as Thor and Loki.
  • The server will start with Episode 1 with the basic 2-1 Class. 2-2 Class will be released within 6 months and High Class within 1-2 years.
  • All monsters return to original spawn points. Ignore level differences between Player and Monster (Renewal Feature). Easier grinding, if we may say.
  • Guild war will be released In the first 3 weeks. Time to grind and build your levels after the CBT closes.
  • Custom Events For Philippines. There will be more details about this feature as we move forward.

The Closed Beta Phase will kick-off in the middle of June this year with the soft launch and the full launch to take place once the major bugs have been worked out. The good news is, you don’t have to wait until June in order to reserve your slot in the CBT servers as a pre-registration phase is already ongoing through the official Ragnarok Online Philippines website, better hurry up and head to the site now if you want to register for CBT as the slots are assumed to be limited considering it will only be for Closed Beta Testing.
