Defunct Services

China

cRO began service on May 20, 2003. It announced on November 1, 2011, that it would be closing down all RO service as of 12/30/2011. At the time of closing, cRO was updated to Episode 13.3 with Brasilis and Babylan 6F, and was hosted by Shanda Entertainment. At the time of the announcement, player data was not going to be preserved for a future Chinese service or transfer to an existing service.

Gravity was announced "We have signed a partnership agreement for the provision of Ragnarok with kunlun" on March 30, 2012. February 28 2013,cRO began service. [1]

Europe

Known as euRO, service began on April 15, 2004. It was run by BURDA Interactive Communities (BIC). Originally opening with Chaos and Loki servers, the two were merged into a single server named Odin. BIC's contract negotiations with Gravity proved difficult, with BIC unable to secure a long-term contract to the game license. In July 2010, BIC announced that due to the inability of the two parties to come to an agreement, it would be withdrawing its latest offer and would thus lose its rights to host the game. A closing date of September 30, 2010 was announced on September 8, and free access to the game was made available from September 15 until the shutdown of the game. Players were given the option to transfer their characters to fRO a few months later. The last update euRO received prior to shutting down was Episode 13.1: Ash Vacuum. euRO was notable in the fact that it never opened a true Kafra Shop item mall, instead releasing a series of Headgear Bundles. euRO was also only one of two servers at the time of its shutdown to not have a Free to Play option.

Oceania

Also known as oRO, began beta service in 2004, went commercial on December 1, 2004, and closed down March 2, 2007. It was hosted by OnGameNet Pty. Ltd. Oceania had 1 main server and one free test server, Sakray; both of which were set to 1x EXP and 1x Drop rates. Players were given the opportunity to transfer to the International service (iRO, which is now the default server for Oceania), and many did accept this offer. The last update oRO recieved prior to shutting down was Episode 10.2: Lighthalzen.

Hispano

Also known as ROh. The last update ROh recieved prior to shutting down was Episode 10.1: Einbroch.

India

Also known as inRO, began in April 2004, and closed down August 14, 2008 [2]. It was hosted by Level Up! India. inRO had 1 main server. The last update inRO recieved prior to shutting down was Episode 10.2: Lighthalzen. As of November 2009, iRO is the official server for India.

Vietnam

First known as vRO, beta was shut down on February 5, 2007 due to not placing more restrictions on RMT. It then went commercial in April 2007, hosted by VinaGame, Inc. It is unknown what update it was on when shut down the first time. As of August 20, 2008, the Website is still down and further information is pending. vRO by VinaGame was closed down on June 20, 2008. Asiasoft re-launched with only an F2P server called Odin on Novemeber 28, 2008, and went commercial on December 29, 2008. In late 2010, Asiasoft announced it would be ceasing service permanently in January 2011 due to an inability to reach a contractual agreement with Gravity Korea (similar to euroRO), and service was terminated on the 24th.

Middle East

Also known as aeRO. Launched by Gravity MEA in 2007-2008, the game never came out of beta. It shut down sometime during late 2008-early 2009. It's unknown what the last update it had before it closed, though it was up to at least Episode 9.0. A new middle east server, aRO, began operations in 2009 and subsequently closed in February 2013.

Malaysia & Singapore

Known as mRO, the server launched in 2003 by Game Flier Malaysia. It shut down on October 31, 2013. Shortly after celebrating their 10 year anniversary. After the closure, iRO became the new official server for the area. The last update the server received was Episode 13.3: El Dicastes.

Philippines

Known as pRO, service began on September 2003 and was hosted by Level Up!. The management auctioned MVP cards, over upgraded items, rare headgears and personalised godly items for real money to those who can afford it. Level Up! earned around a million pesos in each of the auction events they organized. After a series of real money auctions and bundle promos, pRO ceased service immediately on March 31, 2015, technically scamming their players before closing. Users were able to merge into a new iRO server named Thor, which opened on April 2015 with some of their items intact. Most of the items were deleted, approximately 500 accounts were wiped out, only a few characters were migrated successfully. pRO was updated to 14.1 at the time of closure.

Russia

Known as RuRO, the server opened in 2005 and was published by Mados Inc. The company changed their name to Gravity CIS in September 2006 after becoming a subsidiary of Gravity Corporation. The server closed on November 16, 2015. The server and company's website were taken down due to international economic issues [3]. The last episode for RuRO was Episode 14.2 Eclage with the level 175/60 update.
