Looks very promising. Im still waiting for Phantasy Star Universe but this might be worth a try. Saw a movie of the game running and the environments are pretty nice. The Koreans are catching up!

Wow; looks like Gravity got their act together and is really working on a proper sequel. RO was just a grind. That's it. But this looks like it has some depth and many, many similarities to FF XI which I personally loved. The one thing I really liked about RO was the music. I made many CDs, so I hope (and expect) that this will have equal or better tracks. With the man behind CB, I'm not worrying too much.

I'll be sure to play beta.

All jokes aside about prepubescent lolicon girls with bunny ears and frilly french maid panties... ( ) Sorry, was I saying something? :O

Ahem, yes, all jokes aside, the game does look rather pretty though you can't really tell from the screenshots, which as with WoW do not do the game justice when in motion.

I tracked down a very crappy clip from some asian gameshow - its in wonderful cam-o-vision, and the noob playing it back fiddles around with menus and mouse over the fucking footage to flip the movie into vertical, but you do get a good look at the kind of cartoon-like quality the game will have, and it does look very nice.

http://movies.rpgamer.com/ragnarok2/ragnarok2001.wmv

Im sure thers a better clip somewhere on the net but I cant be bothered to find it if it does indeed exist. :p

I think RO2 is pretty much the only MMORPG that has a chance to compete with WoW, seeing how RO1 was a global phenomenon (mostly due to its extended and free betatest).

As long as the game isnt as much of a mindless level grind as RO1, and they include a large variety of quests as with most modern MMORPGs, it should be fine.

Not too sure about the mob-stealing "reward" system. Just do it the way most bloody Mmorpgs do it, lock the encounter with the person/party who initiates the attack. I mean, its not too hard. Quit dicking around with a "reward" system. :p

i think its disgusting how they design young girls with such provocative wear- that alone is making perverts or older guy look at young girls like 15 or something like its ok.

isnt that right seska j/k

Im really looking forward to this. Part of the reason Ragnarok drew me in was because of its cutsey anime feel. Im glad it still retains that.

Im glad you guys are all being open about this, i was under the impression i was the only person that liked ragnarok.

I've seen some gameplay vids and I'm a little dissapointed that they made it fully 3D. Apart from that i can't take the glamor away from this game. I'm trying to find the links since the links that I got from a forum which is down ATM.

From what I remember the beta was on longer than a year. I could be wrong. I was one of those idiots that payed to play it officially. XD

So Seraph... See you at teh beta!

I hope it will be an open beta that Europeans can participate in as well. Usually people here in the Old Continent get shafted as betas generally only accept people from the US.
