The sad news has finally been announced, Level Up Games will be saying goodbye to the Philippine server for Ragnarok Online.
According to the Level Up Games website RO would be leaving the Philippine servers by March 31, 2015 with the new home being iRO (International Ragnarok Online) server.
And for these reasons, we find it difficult to share the heartbreaking news that Ragnarok Online will be concluding its local PH service on March 31, 2015. Please know that if we had any other choice, we would have wanted to keep going. Unfortunately, it seems our journey has now come to its end.
The good news here is that Level Up Games is definitely trying to get things right by migrating player accounts to the iRO, which could be messy if done wrong.
Coming soon in April 2015, iRO will open a new server where accounts of PH gamers who opt-in to the program will be transferred. We will be providing information and updates on this within the next few days. (The migration website URL will be disclosed as soon as possible.)
In their message, Level Up also thanked the fans and gamers who have stuck with the MMORPG since day one, more specifically since 2003, when the game first made it big.
