  1. Hello and meow~ I decided to visit Caspen today after so long. Caspen is packed! xD

    So ameowzing, even though it be just a month I have been away, I see people getting muted, chatroom boxes everywhere, and people I have never seen before! You can say that I really come to Caspen just to sit, do nothing, and look at friends, hahahaha; and maybe to breathe that Caspen air. To be honest, I miss my Dreamer friends a lot, that is why I come back to Caspen... T_T Sadly, did not see two of my friends, NC and Apex... It ok.

  2. Hello and meow. Easter Raffle NPC in Caspen was gone yesterday; but HaZe said it was not intended, so he fixed it and it's back!

    So let's do this... I have only one ticket...

    post-41-screendreamerro578.jpg

    And I won... nyaaaathing~ x'D
    Dreamer so extreme, either you win something or nothing at all. I would have appreciated a jellopy, at least, ha ha ha...

    OK, on with life. Bye.

      Aww thanks for the thought! I was like totally keeping tabs on the thread so that my ticket can be used, hahhahaa

  3. Hello and meow. Easter Event, yes. Due to my inactivity, I missed out a lot. Actually, I gave up on the first day after killing the first egg lol. I drop by in Caspen for only a few minutes, see who's on and then check my DQ, then off.

    Still, it was fated that today, I could meet my friends, NC and Sven during Dice. We spoke of the Easter Event and with NC, I managed to obtain Magic Easter Baskets! YASSS! Attacking eggs so fast that I generate enough heart to fry them and even plopped a raffle ticket into my basket! MORE YASSS, nyaahahahaa~ Got a Norman KS us though, but I won't say much on this since she apologised.

    Later on, for the first time, I stepped into the Easter Fields! Behold, I is the first Doram to walk the easter earth! xD NC gave me a crash course on the whole event (because I forgot everything already after giving up on first day) and I managed to get a few tokens. Unfortunately, Battlegrounds began at that time so I couldn't get more.

    I took this opportune moment to make meowmories. NC knew a good spot, so this makes a cool photo!

    post-40-screendreamerro573-1.jpg?w=1100
    NC, me, Sven.

    Sven even wanted to pose a bit, so ok no problem~ xD

    post-40-screendreamerro575-1.jpg

    Afterwards, we headed to Caspen. So packed with BG going on. We were later joined by Latte and some others, and Latte also gave wise words, haha. And lots of Easter goods being paraded. If I a rich cat, I want the Sparkly Candy Coat, hewhewhew. It matches me perfectly (though I wonder how big it will be)!

    post-40-screendreamerro576-1.jpg
    Sven, me, NC, and Latte.

    So... even though I am late to the party, I had fun hanging out. I may have only 36 tokens, but I managed to get a raffle ticket. I wish Apex was here, but well, maybe he livin up da weekends, haha.

    Either way, the time was brief but it was good. I sleepy now. So... bye!

  4. Hello and meow! If there is one thing about DreamerRO that I love is the Headgear Gambler! I managed to grab a 100m bag from Treasure Box/Chest/wtv and dropped by to visit the guy in Comodo.

    post-39-screendreamerro572-1.jpg

    That is 'Freya's Spiritual Circlet'. Looks like any other circlet. At least, it does not bother my ears. Sadly, only 1 of 3 hats I can wear. Uuuuuu... :< The other two are: Evolved Majestic Goat and Lion Mask. One is for Swordman Merchant types and the other for 2nd classes only. We Summoners are only 1st class.

    To cheer me up, Latte gave me a Bell Ribbon. I was going to stash it in my hat wagon when I realised I already have one, but he lets me keep it anyway. Meow thanks you. :3 Also met some familiar faces like psjd and PitcherShots. Nyaaa I miss loafing in Caspen.

    Next time, I try again to get cute hat, hewhewhew~ OK bye!

    P/S: Sven, if you reading this, Pitcher misses you. >///<

  5. Apex enjoys being in my headgear cart, hewhewhew. So snug in there. xD I told him he was sitting in it, but I guess he cool with that. See, I just came to do my DQ today; and meow name appeared in the Caspen announcement after I completed it. That be when I heard Apex calling out, "Where CATTTTT", heh. So we loafed about, joined Dice and lost, then loafed a tiny bit more.

  6. Hello and meow. Decided to drop by briefly today, hewhewhew... A lucky encounter with meow buddy Apex! No NC though. NC, where you?? Dx There was also Sven (but he gone later). GM Cersei also came in and did Bomb Poring event.

    post-37-screendreamerro570.jpg?w=1100

    In the picture:
    Apex a bit on the right (the Ranger whose life bar you can see), Latte (cut off behind Apex), Gong (behind Barry but blocked), Knight Ares (with Poring Topper hat), -MadMax- (the black-themed dude on the llama) and there is uhm...  a clear shot of Turk. Hmm.>///> Turk is so not my focus, ehem. Nope, nope.

    Also, suddenly we can use boarding halter in Caspen! YASS! This thing is an on-off occurrence, but I vote for halters to be allowed in Caspen! xD

  7. I was recommended to post this as forum thread, so here we go. ^^; I am not a famous or popular player, not a Helper or a legend, so consider this a feedback from a commoner with no biased treatment from others. I share this so that we can all learn something from it, esp. since there is this urge to get more players to come and actually stay. OK, on with the post. Hi. I'm not a newbie, more of a returning player; and I'll be leaving DreamerRO for a while, with a chance of becoming a re-returning player lol. I'll still be on to do Daily Quests and stuff (unless I lazy heheh). I'll also still be visiting the Forum from time to time because I want to be up to date with current DRO stuff, hehe. ^^ But for now, I will be RO-ing elsewhere. I feel sad to do this because I love my Doram, my Tarou halter, and my Dullahan pet; but sometimes you just have to go to a place where little Doram dreams can come true. Oh right, I never did introduce myself in the Hello section ever, yet here I am in the Goodbye section. My IGN is Unemployed Unit and I'm a Summoner. If you don't know what that is, I don't blame you since that is why I am leaving this server for a bit. You may or may not have seen me before, but I'm usually in Caspen or participating in Dice, Poring Catcher, and Disguise Events. That me. One thing for sure is that I will miss hanging out with my friends. Thanks, guys for being in my social circle...in whatever way you did, hahah~ I say all this now in case by the time I return to DRO, y'all are gone or... stuff. I will also miss the headgear gambler, hahahah. DreamerRO has a lot of cool features, I know. I love the high rates and some more other stuff, which is why I say it is sad for me to temporarily leave. It so happens that the cons of staying outweigh the pros. So, why am I leaving? (Sorry, I write a lot. ^^; Hopefully it makes sense. I am not dissing or whining, just giving feedback.) One: I can't experience being a full Doram on this server. I love this class, but it sucks when all I can be is half a Doram because my thirteen advanced skills/Base Level 100 skills are MISSING. I know DRO is "Renewal-ish", but they should not advertise the extended/new classes if they're not fully-implemented yet (Summoner & Rebellion in particular). Don't be greedy for player count. Players will leave when they realise they have been lied to. Players like me who happen to have a preferred class rather than simply doing what comes easiest. I STILL really want to be a full Doram on DreamerRO though! So if it does gets fixed, I be comin back asap yo! xD Two: DreamerRO does not feel fun anymore as many things in the game have turned into a chore or a competition. I know it's for achievement, but after some time, it loses its charm. And competition? I know what that is and what being competitive looks like, but KS (Kill Steal) is NOT IT. I know KS is not against DRO rules, but dude. It's just plain RUDE, DUH. That's why official servers make anti-KS rules. And just because KS is not against DRO rules, does not mean you KS every single person, every single time. And what about 'respecting other players' as mentioned in Dreamer Rule #8, Player Etiquette? Take Goblin Invasion, for example. Appears to sound like a fun event. Yeah right. I get KS-ed a LOT by WLs who just Storm Gust without even looking. REALLY made me angry. Eventually, I managed to win the Goblin event, fair and square. u_u Sure, I could use a class that has best advantage for the event, but the soul is empty. The victory lacks meaning. Next, look at the current Easter Event going on. My friend got KSed hard because people are so damn greedy and desperate for Easter Eggs. Even in Easter Field thingy, people STILL want to KS. Worse, they KS and then diss you for not being a GX. When KSing becomes rampant, things get unfair, people get upset, and the whole vibe of the community becomes negative because complaints will happen. Look at the Forum chatbox, it is evident. Third: change of community? This point links with the previous. Not sure if the kind of crowd changed or I'm finally seeing the uglier side of DRO community after being around long enough. I am not asking for a super polite crowd. I just want to see lesser rudeness and that bit of 'respecting other players' as mentioned in Dreamer Rule #8, Player Etiquette. THAT'S ALL. Instead, we have anti-newbie GX who called my friends and I as trash he needed to clean up; rude players like a two-faced WL with no self-control over her trash talk to my newbie friend (who btw seems to not be online anymore); and a bully who won't apologise when he is clearly in the wrong, despite his effort in trying to portray that he's not really a bad guy. I know people trash-talk, but sometimes it goes overboard and gets carried away, even in PVP areas. If things have always been this way and that it is I who have been oblivious, then...damn. People need to remember DRO Rule 8 of 'minimum respect for players' like omg guuysss. Even if it isn't DRO Rule, it is COMMON SENSE. Fourth: lacking of official contents (maps, NPCs, items/EQ, quests). Again, I know DRO is Renewal-ish; but too many things are missing despite claiming to be updated with "Ep 16.3"(?). What do they truly mean by 'Renewal-ish' anyway?? Big quests like The Royal Banquet and Terra Gloria are unavailable, and the items you can get from these are also unavailable. If DRO had them in shops and stuff then OK, maybe I can compromise (the way they did for Doram stuff but even that has some old tiny issues not fixed till today) -- that said, yes, having god items like Megs sold in NPC shops are awesome. Some people probably don't care because they don't even know what they're missing out on. The only reason I know how much DRO is lacking in terms of content is because I keep up with official RO updates (not too intensely) and I like to do quests. REAL quests, not Daily Quest (and not Hero Quest because Dorams). Now that I am playing in another server, I see even more content that DRO does not have. I know a lot of people play DRO for PVP because supposedly that's what high-rate servers are for; but dude, I am playing this high-rate server for an otherwise-impossible MVP hunt. RO isn't just about killing players, geez. RO has a story. The least we could do (now that we're pirating the game) is appreciate and honour Lee Myoung-Jin's work. Hopefully people here know who that is, at the very least. Fifth: general gameplay direction/class bias...? DreamerRO seems to be all about using few particular classes, spamming skills, and borrowing other classes' skills through cards and stuff. You become a uniform crowd of 'jack of all trades and master of none'. No diversity at all. I remember when a bard randomly performs in other towns just for fun, but where are the bards of Dreamer? Then again, maybe because most other towns are deserted... so ok... But still. When I first came out with my Doram, someone even said they don't know what a Doram is, like OH WOW. Also, Dreamer does not allow you to easily enjoy a job class and instead directs you to one type of build, like how Rebellions should be a revolver build (hence their hero weapon being revolver). What if we like using gatling guns or rifles?? Just lose out on the fun? And I think people don't know what 'mastering something' means. You are supposed to be free to choose your preferred build and class (that is why the game has so many classes, duh!). Having a personal choice of class and build is NOT a bad thing and in Dreamer sense, the mastery part will prove itself when you are still able to kick other people's butts without being a cliche DRO build. And what's with the deal of many "cannot use 3rd job skills here". Then might as well not even be 3rd jobs, hahah. You call that a 'challenge'. Hmm, riiiight... why are Rebellions affected then? Hmm hmm hmmm~ * * * So...yeah, that's basically it. Oh, if my reasons are considered taking a game a bit too seriously, then all I can say is, "Hey, I just have feelings and passion." DreamerRO claims it give players a 'unique experience'. I believe them. It's just too unique for me right now. Yes, I am aware that HaZe and his GMs were busy trying to keep the server up, but sometimes I think they just not dealing with the root cause of the problem and cover it up with an alternative, a temporary solution that makes fixing become harder. Ease up on making new events or asking for future events suggestions and try to fix things first. Better to run events on a fully-functioning game, right? But this is just my OPINION. I'm not bashing anyone. Also, to get demotivated when people aren't contributing monetarily to a private (pirate) server is actually unreasonable. You want reviews, you want votes, but the server does not give off fun vibes the way it used to. Dreamer really is a pirate land now where everyone lacks decency; everyone is all about greed, gambling, fighting; and you're only friends with those who are as thug as you. Anyway, back to server issue... I don't know how to put this as nicely as possible but I think if you can't provide the service anymore (because of cost or whatever), it is OK to admit defeat than continue doing sloppy work. I've seen servers close once their GMs could not keep it up because life happened. People grow up, have jobs and families, other commitments -- everyone understands that. Sometimes, you just have to let go of the things you love, if not hand it down. Speaking of which, I read that HaZe said back in Sept(?) 2018 that he is handing down the server codes to another developer or something in order to help him work on all bugs, fixes, implementations, stuff... I believe this is a good move, yes. ^^ In the meantime, I will be playing at low-rate server for now. Yes, it is going to need a LOT of getting used to and sadly, one can't learn all skills like in Dreamer but hey, they recognise Dorams and Rebellions (and appreciate every class, seriously) and... well, they have all that I can only dream of on DreamerRO. So... I sadly take my leave -- for now. Off to become a full Doram, to experience the class for how it should be. To my friends, I'll see you whenever I see you, hahah. Thanks again for everything, guys. And to everyone, thanks for reading it in full, if you did. ^^
  8. Not to sound selfish, but lollll does anyone even remember that this is actually a (semi)GOODBYE post and it is about ME and why I am leaving...? When I posted this thread, I came in peace; but it seems that people have issues with the system. If so, please comment on relevant threads, NOT a post in the Hello & Goodbye like omg People can link to the post, but not vent out in here hahaha Let's not let this post reach 3 pages filled with contents that can confuse and/or go out of topic. Scrolling bar already so small hahahaha
  9. Hahahaha... okok... This is gonna be long. @sakazuki : Dude, that response you quoted... It was for GM Cersei, not you. I never did say she was entirely wrong. The first one was about Doram skills which I had to clarify was not available (because she said Doram has skill), the second part in my reply TO HER was about Rebellion skills which she was right about. Let me just quote Cersei: I'm OK with the balancing thingy and I understand it because I READ YOUR REPLY. Now, in HER reply, she is saying TO ME that Dorams have their skills, while I am saying TO HER that Dorams lack the ADVANCED SKILLS. Maybe I wasn't clear since Doram is so obscure that my words can be understood in many ways. By 'Advanced Skills', I am referring to the skills in skill tree (Alt+S) that appear once you reach Base Level 100. Skills like this: (hope the image loads) These skills do not exist, that is why I am pointing it out generally so that we can all learn something and improve. That's all. So OK... for your first point, I already thanked you for explaining the technical aspect to me. And I mean it when I thanked you. I really appreciate the explanation. Next, your fifth point: skill balancing... again. I know what it is and I acknowledge your entire reply with a React to show I read it and have nothing further to add to you... Like I said, I'm OK with balancing... but how to balance/add-on to something that does not even exist when we play as a Doram?? x'D These skills are not anywhere in the skill tree and THAT is the issue here. But if you want to use that term, then OK. I will wait for Doram skill to be 'balanced'. And as I have titled my Forum post here, I already AM playing in a server that can provide me with I want. A place that has all Doram skills AND overcomes the rest of the issues I pointed out in my original post. It is low-rate where I can't even get a card after killing a million mobs, but I will be patient. I know DRO lacks in official content, but SKILLS are important to a class, right?? I don't plan on leaving DRO (as you can see from the title of this forum post which says 'Semi-Goodbye') because I know these things take time to fix. I'll be waiting for when the server has the content that it should have. At least, have skills fixed. It has been years since the Doram made its appearance on the server and some vets already put forth issues that need fixing, but nope. This is an OLD issue that is NOT FIXED TILL TODAY. I play elsewhere because I can't be waiting forever... And another thing: my post was not written an angry or sulky way. I made the thread so that everyone is aware of issues. I leave DRO only for a while, and I am sad to do so because I have been here for years and recently made some friends. I am also hoping the server will improve for everyone and I do not hate DRO.
  10. I didn't want to do this, but I am starting to think that I need to re-clarify my points on Doram skill and class bias... so that we all know which point to improve on. In my original post, I said NOTHING about skill balancing. I speak of Doram missing skills. Skills that SHOULD be there but are NOT. My main class is Summoner (which I just call as Doram because people don't know what Summoner is). Therefore, my concern is Doram skills. I only mention Rebellion because I have a side character which is a Rebellion, but I never elaborated much on that because it is not my main concern. If anyone wants to talk Rebellion stuff, go to @liyaperfidious. Next, I speak of class bias. Again, NOT skill balancing. People here only pick a few types of classes because it seems 'better', though usually they just want easy wins; rarely because they love the class. And within that class bias is a build bias. I think if a person truly understands a class, it can be as good as any other class. This server and the people in it make it seem as though GX (for example) is the most desirable class when in fact, any class can be good. So, enough with this 'skill balancing' because I think y'all are missing my point. (Sorry if I offend any GX that chose to be GX because they genuinely love the class. I just had to use GX as example because that is trending now, lol.)
  11. Thanks. ^^ Oh, I write a lot because when people read something (if they do read), they like to jump to (inaccurate) conclusions and never ask for clarification. So I explain there what my reasons are, in plain simple words. Still, we see here some misinterpretations of my words. I don't know how else to say anything, lol. I'm actually fine with both pre-renewal and renewal. Somewhere along the way, something else just changed... and that is where the problem lies.
  12. Uhm... OK... but in reference to my original post, I am saying that the Dorams do not have their ADVANCED SKILLS (a total of 13 skills). Example of advanced skills: Soul Attack, Spirit of Savage, Grooming, Nyang Grass, etc. I am not concerned with skill balancing/nerfing/whatever people here call it, lol. And yes, Rebellions have their skill, YES. The problem is that the skills are not working properly. Not balancing problem, not missing skill. Just skill not working when it SHOULD/not working PROPERLY. Lol, as long as you read my original post it's fine by me. ^^ Yes, I DO realise that NOW which is why I am leaving a for a bit. We can't all instantly know what a server is about if we try it for only a week or two. Worse is that on RMS, they label their server as an RP server which is SO misleading. Eh? DRO has a story? Is it the Hero 'story'? But anyway yeah, I've found a server with the original contents that I need (esp. the Doram advanced skills), so I'm good for now. I know admins are busy and stuff, but at the very least, the skills that a Doram should have... are MISSING. Rebellions skills are BUGGY. They advertise it everywhere to try those classes, yet the classes (Doram & Rebels in particular) are not fully-functioning. I'm just a bit disappointed in that. Yeah, I guess the community might have been better back in 2015 because I was able to go about my days without getting dragged in to the things I avoid and the people I avoid. Now, I just mind my own business and actually get dragged in. Golly. (Hehehe yesss Picky Peck!)
  13. I still go online once in a while... and I'll always be lurking in Forum, hehehe.
  14. Thanks, man. Ahh... thank you for that info about server technicalities. Much appreciated and I can understand the situation better now. ^^ Oh, I was more talking about Doram skills not being there at all, but about the Rebellion skills... Some Rebellion skills don't work on specific map. It should work, but it doesn't. @liyaperfidious has been saying a lot about it, but nothing happens, so it can be demotivating. Maybe, but I still think people can change if we use the right methods and if everyone cooperates. I know skill balancing is a thing, but my main concern is the diversity of the classes. We can still be other classes, but the gameplay just favours a small few kinds of class (like GX) and they lean more towards a certain build. Example: Rebellion = they push you into being Revolver type. Kagerou/Oboro = they push you into being magic type. Yes, you can still be Rifle user or physical Ninja, but you will never get all the extra stuff that Revolver and Magic types get. This is the bias and lack of diversity that I am talking about. Anyway, I'm glad you understand. Yes, I hope things will get better too. Just with any problems, the more you leave it be, the harder it will be to fix. That's all I am worried about...
  15. Omggg I am so sorry if I ignored you! I usually screenshot as many Dorams as I can whenever I see them because they're so rare, but I really didn't have any pics of you. Must have totally not seen you, sorry! Dx --edit: Wait a minute. I've added you to my guild before. Hmm... still, I wonder what happened that day. Sorry again.
  16. Hi Feurille. Thanks for clearing that up. I mean yeah, the term 'renewal-ish' did confuse me. If that is the case then OK...I guess. Oh, so the 'new developer' HaZe mentioned last year is Sadie? Wew. o_O I too play for nostalgia, but not so much. I play Dreamer server for the high rates because if on low rate, it can be hard to solo through main arc quests (esp. if they recommend a party of more than 2). Mmm, yes I know nothing comes easy except money maybe, hahaha~ since there is that Caspen Treasure Box thingy (though you'd still need to get lucky to hit one with a bag in it)... But I don't want the money much. I want the adventure. The roaming about doing quests, if not hanging out with an NPC. I know DRO somewhat centralises on PVP but I thought they'd have the normal stuff as well for non-PVP play(quests, for example). "...consider every new player as someone who will not stay long, as most of them don't." -- hot quote for the day, hehehe. So far everyone here seems to acknowledge the fact that DRO community is toxic. With that in mind, how are we even supposed to retain new players? It makes me think twice on reviewing the server on RMS because I do not want to trap people into coming to a place like this. I guess since we have yet to cleanse the DRO community, better not even ask for new people to come in; unless they have nerves of steel and seems like potential cure for the community. Personally, I think we should stop voting and reviewing for a while just to avoid newbies from coming and going because people will talk. We need to fix ourselves first before re-promoting this place to the world. This whole server needs a makeover. x'D Eh? You have approached me as a Doram?? When? I usually don't ignore people since I don't AFK... unless I was in some serious discussion with my friends. What was your name? I must know!
  17. @liyaperfidious : What makes a server possible is if anyone plays on it. You know, like what are rock stars if without fans. So 'community' is a huge factor. But yeah, we probably can't say much on the rest because we can't change it... So talkin about community indicates that we really want to change it and it's obvious that we CAN change it. Maybe once everyone (or at least a majority) can generate good vibes, goodness will circulate. This is the warmer and slower approach, though. Trying to enforce laws upon the lawless usually backfires, but I believe if firmness and continuity is there, it'll work. We already have Support Players. Better yet, we even have 'Control/Police' in GM ranks. This is their time to shine, to use the power bestowed upon them! Or so we can hope.
  18. @caramellmacchiato : Yeah I saw you and miareeta yesterday at Caspen. ^^ Well~ it's just that things have gotten so bad that I can't even sugarcoat anything. I mean, if things are bad, it's bad. I can't say otherwise, right? I usually let some things slide, but I can't anymore. I don't want to tarnish people's names either, but if I ever mention names, it indicates just how damaging their actions are. People tarnish their own names when they just keep being rude. If you wanna say that is just who they are because of reasons, then fine. I will compromise, but it does not mean it's OK. True, we can't force someone to behave the way we want to; but we can do our part and tell them HOW they should behave (esp. if it is against the rules and disrupts social harmony). If you want to speak in an uncultured way among yourselves (party or guild chat) then OK. But to speak like that to just about anyone because you forgot how to speak like normal people, not OK. It's the same as how you don't go placing your arm over the shoulders of someone you've known for ten minutes, even if it is clearly a friendly gesture. Wow, cool! ^^ I support your efforts! Yes, I believe it is very possible to turn DRO community into a better one, using the right methods. Deal with the root cause. Player mute is a small move, but a good method. So far, the servers I have played have it. Why DRO does not have that, I don't know. Bad method of removing toxicity: removing the #main channel. So a few people were very rude on #main -- why was the entire server punished? You could have muted or ban the players, but nope. Let's just throw the whole trio of channels into the ditch instead. Yeah they put it back now but only available to those who join... which is near pointless. Anyway... community aside, I will still hope for DRO to have all skills available and working, and for maps to be implemented. ^^ If improving the community is that hard of a task, let us decent folk roam about on quests, away from 'unavoidable' drama. And Caspen's tile bug has GOT to get fixed, like seriously! xD
  19. @Itsmesophie : Oh hey, I've definitely seen you around! Last I saw you was when I first went on Easter hunt some days ago, hehe~ Anyway, I don't mind being called 'kitty' because my friends call me that too. Cat, kitty... No problem. @miareeta : Hahaha, that is why I don't like PVP. I CHOSE not to be involved in that scene because I can already imagine what's coming, haha. Yeah, those words... the person I was told of made remarks about female body parts just because my friend was a girl, so that one was very unacceptable, but I feel like that person would appear decent to someone else that I know of. But yeah, in my time, there have been people who have helped me and answered some of my questions (and this includes you!). There are decent people, but I think they just be lingering elsewhere to avoid this. That was what I did a couple of years back, but I guess the longer you stay somewhere, the more you notice things, the good and the bad. I hope things will get better too. We gotta turn hope into action. Feedback has been given, bugs and all other issues have been reported, so the rest is in the hands of the admin team.
  20. I just wish I knew why everything turned out this way. Why Dorams have only half their skill tree, why the other regions are not implemented... is it really just because HaZe is handling all that alone...? How does all this coding thing work? What is the process and all that stuff... u_u Just want to understand it better... But dude, your bug issue, the "stuck but not" thingy... is just plain weird. Annoying people... yeah, some people are just selectively nice. It may seem unbelievable to those who are their friends, but there you have it. To one person, they are decent enough and even if they act up, it ain't that bad... but when the person is not a friend or not someone with higher reputation, their 'acting-up' is just rude. Suddenly they have zero manners, they just wanna spoil the mood, to just make themselves feel better and appear powerful (when we just mindin' out own business). Childish behaviour that is left unchecked. I know that it could be just a one-time thing, a spur of the moment, but wow. Rude is rude. They could've avoided behaving that way, but no, they CHOSE to be that way at that moment and they do not seem sorry about it and/or did not even think it was bad when it IS. True, no one is perfect; but I mind my own business, stay out of their way, STILL get bothered by them. In the words of one these rude players, perhaps there really is "trash" these days and we do "need to clean up the streets". If Ragnarok can be funner with friends, it can also be uglier with too many jerks as well. Dunno what their malfunction is, but sometimes I think it's because they PVP too much they think everything is about trash talks and killing.
  21. Ey guys. I'ma be leaving DreamerRO for a while. Returning player going away a bit and high chance become re-returing player lol. I'll still be on to do Daily Quests (unless I lazy heheh) and maybe loaf a bit once in a while. I also might go on for automated events like Poring Catcher and Dice. Other than that, I will be RO-ing elsewhere. I feel sad to do this because I love my Doram and my cart and my pet, but sometimes you just have to go where little Doram dreams can come true.

    I will still be visiting the Dreamer Forum from time to time because I want to be up to date with current DRO stuff, hehe. ^^ So to those who have been enjoying my status posts, I appreciate it a LOT. Thanks so much.

    One thing for sure is that I will miss hanging out with my friends, Apex and NC. I will also miss seeing Gong adjusting his butt on the Caspen tile, wearing yet another random headgear, haha... And psjd randomly coming up to my Doram. And seeing Cray and Sven, seeing Mr Mittens helping newbies, seeing Latte AFK-ing, DunnoFarm also parking by the Achievement Manager... and my Doram will miss Turk very much. No, not crush, just pure admiration.

    Thanks, guys for being in my social circle...in whatever way you did, hahah~ I say all this now in case by the time I return to DRO, y'all are gone or stuff.

     

    So, why am I leaving? (Sorry, I write a lot. ^^; Hopefully no typos.)

    One: I can't experience being a full Doram on this server. I love this class, but it sucks when all I can be is half a Doram without my thirteen advanced skills/Base Level 100 skills. I really think DRO shouldn't offer the classes if it is not yet fully-functional. Don't be greedy. Players will leave when they realise they have been lied to. Players like me. And yeah sure I can play another class but no. I play a class that I feel connected to. These are Dorams, AB, Rebellions. I don't play my AB because DRO makes me feel like it is an unneeded class.

    I STILL really want to be a full Doram on DreamerRO though! So if it does gets fixed, I'ma be comin back asap yo. xD

    Two: DreamerRO does not feel fun anymore as many things in the game have turned into a chore or a competition; and the Dreamer world is only for the rich and powerful. I know what competition is and what being competitive looks like, but KS (Kill Steal) is NOT IT. Take Goblin Invasion, for example. Supposed to be fun event. Pfft. I get KS-ed a LOT by WLs like Missy Toki, Lady Cherish, and Angwen Sutanto who just Storm Gust without even looking. REALLY made me angry. Sure, I could use a class that has best advantage for the event, but the soul is empty. The victory lacks depth. Next, look at the current Easter Event going on. My friend got KSed hard because people are so damn greedy and desperate for Easter Eggs. Even in Easter Field thingy, people like Pau (rude GX) STILL want to KS. Worse, they KS and then diss you for not being a GX.

    KSing is not being competitive, to me. I will not lower my standards just because that's the only way to even the odds. Na'ah, not happening, bub. I managed to win the Goblin event, fair and square. u_u

    Third: change of community? Not sure if the kind of crowd changed or I'm finally seeing the uglier side of DRO after being around long enough. This point links with the previous. I am not asking for a super polite crowd. I just want to see lesser rudeness and that bit of 'respecting other players' as mentioned in Dreamer Rule #8, Player Etiquette. THAT'S ALL. Instead, we have anti-newbie like - PeaNottJelly - (the GX who called my friends and I as trash he needed to clean up); rude players like Juliet (two-faced WL with no self-control over her trash talk to my other friend); and a bully like MauDeoL who won't apologise when he is clearly in the wrong, despite his effort in trying to portray that he's not really a bad guy.

    I know people trash-talk, but sometimes it goes overboard and gets carried away outside of PVP areas. If things have always been this way and that it is I who have been oblivious, then...damn. People need to be disciplined, hewhewhew...

    Fourth: lacking of official contents (maps, NPCs, items/EQ, quests). DreamerRO claims to be Episode 16.3 (I think they mean 16.2?); but many things are missing. Rockridge and Lasagna regions are empty, the stuff you can get from those regions are also not available, and the only quests we have (real quest, not tasks like DQ) are the one related to Hero stuff. DRO does not even have Royal Banquet. Also, I'm briefly angered at the fact that they used an NPC from Lasagna for Easter but can't even implement that town! Yes, I am aware that HaZe and his GMs were busy trying to keep the server up, but sometimes I think they just not dealing with the root cause of the problem and cover it up with an alternative, a temporary solution that makes fixing become harder.

    Fifth: general gameplay direction...? DreamerRO seems to be all about using few particular classes and getting good just so you can kick all the other kids' butts -- and that means spamming skills and borrowing other classes' skills through cards and stuff. You become a uniform crowd of 'jack of all trades and master of none'. No diversity at all. I remember when a bard randomly performs in town, but where are the bards of Dreamer? When I first came out with my Doram, someone even said they don't know what a Doram is, like OH WOWWWW. In terns of gears, it's really cool that we have godly items that we don't have to make (because it's super tedious), so that gives everyone a chance to obtain it if they can get Zeny...but custom gears are mostly the same: cast delay reduction and demi-human stuff to enable spamming skills outrageously on other people.

    So, to me, Dreamer does not allow you to easily enjoy a job class and instead tells you what you should do. So much for "mastering a class", lol -- like how Rebellions should be a revolver build and Kagerou/Oboro should be magic build. I think people don't know what 'mastering something' means. You are free to choose your preferred build; it's not a bad thing and in Dreamer sense, the mastery part comes when you are able to kick other people's butts, the people that follow DRO's templates.

    And what's with the deal of "cannot use 3rd job skills here". Then might as well not even be 3rd jobs, hahah. You call that a 'challenge'. Hmm, riiiight... I ain't buyin it, jack. x'D

     

    * * *

    So...yeah, that's basically it. DreamerRO claims it give players a 'unique experience'. I believe them. It's just too unique for me right now. I think HaZe and GM team should ease up on making new events or asking for events suggestions and try to fix things first. Better to run events on a lesser-bug server, right? But this is just my opinion. I'm not bashing anyone. ^^ Also, people have got to realise that private servers are just pirated RO. So, to get sulky when people aren't contributing monetarily is not valid. I don't know how to put this as nicely as possible, but I think if you can't provide the service anymore, it is OK to admit defeat than continue doing sloppy work. I've seen servers close because their GMs could not keep it up because of life. People grow up, have jobs and families -- everyone understands that. Sometimes, you just have to let go of the things you love.

    However, I read that HaZe said back in Sept(?) 2018 that he is handing down the server codes to another developer or something in order to help him work on all bugs, fixes, implementations, stuff... I believe this is a good move, yes. ^^ In the meantime, I will be playing at low-rate server for now. Yes, it is going to need a LOT of getting used to and sadly, one can't learn all skills like in Dreamer but hey, they recognise Dorams and Rebellions (and every class, seriously) and... well, they have all that I can only dream of on DreamerRO.

    Oh, if this is considered taking a game a bit too seriously, then all I can say is, "Hey, I just have feelings and passion." I mean damn, RO is cool and I played the official server since its beta testing days until The Sign quest came out. And as I have said before, the least we pirates can do to honour Lee Myoung-Jin is to thoroughly share and enjoy all his work.

    So... I take my leave -- for now. I'll see you whenever I see you, hahah. Thanks again for everything, guys. :th_gawi: And thanks for reading it in full, if you did. ^^

      @caramellmacchiato : Well, originally I did want to post this in the Hellos & Goodbye section, but I didn't wanna make a scene, that's why I let it be a status post only. But... if I feel like I want to post as a forum thread, then I will. I'll edit the text in this post to remove the names I have mentioned, of course, and focus more on the game aspect.

      @ApexPredator : I'm gonna miss you and our loafing about as well! T_T

      How is it "making a scene" by just being outspoken that is so sad to me in this era. I encourage you do to that and even if its gonna be a scene its one worth making. 

    4. onion

      onion

      Yeah, Ikr... but well, you know how some people in the forum are, hahahaa... I've been reading suggestion threads and stuff. People seem to fear suggestions and feedback -- or not getting the point/message. Anyway, yeah I've decided that I'll be making that little thread soon anyway. ^^

  22. Meowww what a DQ today! Hylozoist Card! That is as bad as asking for 195x Flashlight! Luckily my buddies Sven has some in stock and Apex helped me out, so I finished my DQ very quickly, hewhewhew. Thanks, guys.

    What did we do after that? Go to Hugel and place our bets for the Hugel Monster Race!! I've always enjoyed this since it first came out years back. Here I bet on little Piggy, but he kept sleeping... hahahhaa~ And sorry, Apex, I didn't realise that the Dreamer logo blocked you... :< Go see Sven's page. He has a better picture, I think.

    post_35a_screendreamerro568_by_earlyonio

    We had a few DCs (what was up with that??) and Sven got stuck, but we were determined to see the race! xD Eventually, the server stabilised and Apex even won something! xD

    After that, I decided to show Apex the hometown of Doram: Port Town Lasagna. It's (still) a dead town, but he liked it anyway. ^^ That pink macaroon was made for NC, I tell you; but she wasn't online, so... yeah... :< Sven then showed Apex around Rockridge.

    post_35b_screendreamerro569_by_earlyonio

    OK bye!

    On a side note, a Doram asked in Caspen where the "Level 100 skills" are. Of course, no one answered because I dunno who even plays Doram much or know the true official capabilities of Dorams lol. So, I told her that if she's referring to Doram advanced skills, then Dreamer (still) does not have it. She remained silent afterwards, perhaps a bit disappointed that she can only be half a Doram?

    And what is weird is that in Dreamer, the skill 'Catnip Meteor' inflicts Ghost property damage instead of Neutral element. Could it possibly be that GM and team know about the 'missing' advanced skills since they might have edited the CN Meteor element...t? And if so, are Doram advanced skills removed on purpose or...? o_O Most curious...

    Whatever it is, it is truly a pity because Dreamer's surplus Skill points for Summoners would enable everyone to truly experience the class and at Level 500; but oh welllll~ Can't do anything but just accept it that THIRTEEN skills are non-existent, lelz x'D Either that or find an alternative...

    But to be honest, I want to experience being full Doram on Dreamer RO. I really do.

    1. Latte

      Please tell me you looted Broken Needles and Needle Packets from Hylozoist when you were hunting them omg 

    2. liyaperfidious

      liyaperfidious

      ^ very good point there. I always loot those goods but quests keep on asking for em, hahahaa

    3. onion

      onion

      Yeah I think I do loot those as well... but of course, not much of them. Usually when DQ wants Hylozoist card (or cards from mobs with population of 15-20 and less), I change the DQ or give up, hewhewhew~

      Wonder what is up with the NPC's fascination with Niflheim goods, like seriously. Scavenger, can understand because she IS Lady Hel hahhaha, but DQ girl a.k.a. Comodo Kafra... hmmmmmm~

  23. Hello. This post is about my first-time experience entering HHH Lite! Woohoo! Safe Mode, of course. Meow, that place is chaos and laggy.

    When it first came out, I thought only Heroes could enter; so I never bothered remembering what I read on the Forum post by Sadie. Still, I decided to try the next HHH. And so I did! The only one I can kill is Gretel, but another mob spawned right next to me and so I died. x'D

    No matter, I brought back something -- Heroic Coins! Look:

    dd4prsa-582952c5-49d6-421f-9b24-a4716483

    Dorams can't be Heroes, so this is actually a very useless thing to me. x'D No value at all, might as well I turn them into earrings or something, hewhewhew... I guess I am supposed to be grateful that non-Heroes can join in the deathly game.

    ...

    The true reason why I decided to try HHH is not curiosity, though. So you cannot say 'curiosity killed the cat'. I was still surprised that I can go in HHH even though I not a Hero.

    Recently, a friend has been having issues with a certain PK KS-er. Being a DreamerRO Doram, I am helpless and could only watch them all gear up and preparing to hammer down justice onto that guy since his unruly behaviour is not against the HHH rules-- oh WAIT.

    It actually IS against the [dRO Player Etiquette] under the "In-Game Rules" no. 8. Anyway, since no one would bring justice, my friend (along with Sven) made a strong team and they went hunting for him. Lacking good gears and not having half my skill tree as a Doram, all I could do was wait in limbo and give two Doram buffs whenever I saw them.

    We burned the midnight oil. Wonderfully, they got him. Justice has been served by the hands of commoners. May the Leopard God bless my Norman friends...and smite that asshat. Hiss.

      So you cannot say 'curiosity killed the cat'.

      Tch. I thought of this when I saw the HHH post. Oppuntunity is dead. Huge bummer.

      Like I always say, some of the rules they already have are good, but no enforcement.

  24. Hello and meow, Unemployed Unit here~ Yes, you probably think I have posted this before, but no. The usual cast is here, with an addition of Latte and Vain! Not only that, Latte and Sven have become GIRLSSS. o_O THAT is why this picture had to happen, what more with Vain putting on their cutest look, hahaha.

    Clockwise, starting from Unemployed Unit (that me yes), GxNC, Latte, Vain The Sniper, ApexPred, und Sven 1C4.

    The first picture's zoom and angle was perfect, but I actually love the pose in the second picture (below). Sadly, I had to zoom out because the announcement text wasn't going away back-to-back announcements lol) and NC had to go offline soon so we couldn't retake.

    dd4kqjc-fca36d70-ada2-413a-aef8-e16f1147

    So there you have it. Lazy afternoon with friends. Or as Apex calls it, Social Sunday! xD


    OK, bye.
