Ragnarok Online, the legendary MMORPG that has been going strong for over 10 years. Created and developed for the first time in South Korea on November 1, 2001 and developed by Gravity Corporation. After 9 months of testing, it was officially opened for the first time in late 2002.
Over the course of 18 years, Ragnarok has been developed into many different server versions, one of them is a Server Original that still follows the timeline of the original content. The character development from Class 1> Class 2> High Class 99> Class 3 150> Class 3 175> Class 3 185 and currently can develop up to Class 3 with a max level of 200!!
Aside from that, it seems that there are still many players who yearn for fun from their childhood as Ragnarok is one of the games that they played in their younger years. Therefore, various retro servers have emerged and currently, the game is separated into three other types namely
Ragnarok Classic, Ragnarok Zero and Ragnarok Revo Classic.
Let's get to know the legendary game a little bit more. Do you know how many countries are the servers serving Ragnarok Online in the world? Today, we have gathered this information for you by asking a person who has been collecting Ragnarok Online game data for a long time, Mr. Sigma, from his current data, the entire service server is divided into 11 groups, each of which will be discussed here. The information is as follows:

This is making me reminisce about the memories that I have had playing this game through the years. Ragnarok is not just a single platform. There are many other interesting platforms and games. Especially now, the popular mobile games will continue to be available and more of them will be developed and released in the near future.
Lastly, if your friends are thinking about the old atmosphere and want to go back to your younger years when you played Ragnarok Online, you can register and play the game through the information above.
One server that was challenging for us to connect to is iRO, which is the American server. We were able to play the game with a group of players here in Thailand, but the ping was very high which was around 300ms. When we play games with servers from overseas like iRO, a good VPN program like PingBooster will reduce the ping significantly especially the delay in talking to NPCs, using various skills including the use of the "Fly Wing" item that needs instantaneous speed, your movement, and your basic attacks.
