I’ve been receiving a lot of questions and requests about when Philippine Ragnarok Online will finally join almost all the MMORPGs here and go Free to Play.

Players have been asking, our sales people have been bugging me and even people here at the office have pointed this to me a lot of times.

And yes, there ARE rumors out there about pRO going F2P. This post is both a “yes and a no” and hopefully, clarify everything at the end of the day.

Let me give you an inside scoop about the top secret “Valkyrie Project”.

While I think its great that Levelup offers the option to play on a free to play server, I honnestly can't say I like the items being offered.

Slotted items and equipment taken out of the game and put into an item shop? boss cards taken out of the game an item shop?  Aside from levels, hunting for slotted equipment and cards is the whole point of the game,and lets not forget the fact that the entire economy is based on these items.

It also completely ruins the endgame since the endgame is all about hunting those items and cards. If you take out the slotted equipment and MVP cards..what is the point in hunting those MVP's in the first place?

If I can make a suggestion...put the slotted equipment and cards back in the game. instead, focus on item shop items such as XP boosters,  item drop boosters, fashion hats, Carts for non - merchant/BS/ALCH classes, buffs, things like that.

I honnestly can't see this working.

I believe all hardcore RO fans will possibly moving to the newest game being imported from Outspark named "Secret of the Solstice".

It uses the Ragnarok Engine(or some engine that is damn close to it) and basically, it's the same thing, only it's free(as far as we know).

It's nice that they are making it F2P but removing some of the features that make this game interesting is just terrible. Cash shops really break apart good MMORPGs. 
What's next? War of Eperium Cloak, and you have to weak this cloak to enter the War of Eperium? Really sucks.
