Filipino Players Still Love Ragnarok Online!
Fast forward, Philippine Ragnarok Online evolved to cope with the current trend in the gaming world. The game went Free to Play with optional VIP system, started a new and classic server, added new class stages (3rd jobs, 4th jobs, Rebirth system etc), and a lot more maps, monsters, items, bgm's, head gears etc.
A very sad moment came when the game was shut down in 2015. Ragnarok Online players scattered playing new games and some in Ragnarok Online Private servers, but many hoped that the day will come when Ragnarok Online PH players will be reunited again.
and that day came yesterday!
8:00AM: RO Early Birds already flock the gates of the venue. (50+ people)
9:00AM: A flock of early birds now seems to be an army of them. Smiling and Self organized, they already started to meet and greet each other. I can hear old players talking about the old servers (Chaos, Loki and Lydia) and some even brought their whole family and guild to join the event!
and the line goes all the way to the other side and around the building!
ENTRY: Intensely Rush. You can see people rushing, running and even pushing others on the supposed to be escalator turned stairs since it's not working lolz
I really have no idea how long the line is. In my video you can clearly see that the line spiral down to 3rd and 2nd floor but some says it goes way down to the ground floor!
The image below is taken a few minutes after we reach 4th floor.
The event started with the registration of early birds, guild attendance, head gear and cosplay.
While the registration queue is busy, we can see the Game Community Managers roaming around, meeting and greeting players of old and new.
