Ragnarok Online 2: Legend of the Second CBT Overview

By Lime
A degree holder in digital arts(animation) I always had the passion to play online games and was always attracted to games with unique character designs. I always wanted to try playing every new mmo but it is really hard to play another game once you got hooked on another one and when creating a new character, I always had the calling of using a magic class character. I don't even know why but i always felt that I was a medic during my past life, supporting my party or my guild during each dangerous adventure. I always loved to explore and be on the lines of support.

Last July 1, 2010, Gravity Corp. announce that the current Ragnarok Online 2 server: The Gate of the World will be shut down on August 2, 2010 to give way for the (CBT)Close Beta Test of the new Ragnarok Online 2 server: Legend of the Second that will begin on August 31, 2010.

All former beta players who played the old server "The Gate of the World" will have a chance to request for a compensation for being loyal to the game. Every requests allows them to get 1000 RO worth of in-game cash, automatically enrolled to the new Ragnarok 2 – Closed Beta Test and a special themed outlook that will be given on the day of the server testing.
