New systems abandoned, back to the familiar ones

Ragnarok Online 2: Legend of the Second abandons Ragnarok Online 2's core systems: weapon leveling system and multi-class system.

Different from the mainstream MMORPGs in the current market, Ragnarok Online 2 allows players to have their weapons upgrade continuously. The weapons can be changed to something like guns or wands, and can get more powerful as they upgrade.

The weapon leveling concept is surely a good idea, but some players think that since the weapons just level up as their characters level up, they can't feel the differences between weapons, and thus feel bored for the failure to enjoy the fun of new weapons. In Ragnarok Online 2, one character can work for more than one class, but most skills cannot satisfy players in this respect, which makes the balance between classes unable to be reached.

In Ragnarok Online 2: Legend of the Second, the above two systems are deleted, which actually means the developer has admitted their new attempt's failure. And the two systems are just replaced by the common weapon exchange and job transfer systems respectively.
