    This are news about an official US release.

    Nothing to do with the patch, nothing to do with the japanese release. >_>

    I already knew about this news a couple of minutes before the creation of this topic. Hopefully, one of the mods or admin is nice enough to change the title as the title is very misleading.

    What the hell? Ragnarok isn't very popular in North America... not as much as it is in Asia anyway. Can't imagine why they'd bring it over. It's a pretty niche game... people who don't like or don't play Ragnarok will probably hate this game.

    are you kidding! its very popular. its just an underground game and there are hundreds of private servers which get the most players. its just that most dont care about the original mmo they just liek the ps's

    It can't compete with the monstrously evil life-devouring juggernaut that is WoW. The private servers are popular because you don't have to pay for them and, unlike Blizzard, Gravity doesn't bother to crack down on them.

    Anyhow, does this game have any actual online component at all? I know it isn't MMORPG, but can you at least play with other people diablo-style?

    Tht's why i prefer Guild Wars over WOW. you only need tu buy the game, never pay for the servers.

    I started playing MMORPGS in a free official ragnarok server, and there are even free official servers.

    Yes you can. Up to 3 people i believe it was.

    Through a 50(?) floor tower, never tried it, but seems fun.

    Altough i'm looking forward to the english release of Phantasy Star Zero more.

    You're right, PRIVATE SERVERS are popular. But the game isn't based on private servers. I'm talking about the REAL game.
