Distressed, Tombo - Distressed

Big Ragnarok Online rant

We all like games we can enjoy, right? Then why is it most games aren't all that enjoyable these days? I can't speak for World of Warcraft, but Ragnarok Online has really been sucking lately.

Let's start off with my biggest sore point; Mages. I love mages. I realize they can be slow to work up and are quite defenseless, but why do they have to completely suck? When Ragnarok Online (RO) first had mages when I played during the beta, they were really powerful, probably too much so. It's been like a year or two since they were in beta and I'm just now getting back to playing RO on a private server (since I don't have the funds to play on the official one).

On top of that, the game doesn't provide a lot of alternative places to level, so you have to kill the same things over and over until you can finally handle something else; it gets really boring very quickly. There are hundreds, possibly a thousand or more, monsters in the game yet you're still limited to only four or five at a given time.

I don't care if it's not realistic, I want fun and enjoyable first.
Great, now I have a headache, wound up in knots, and really stressed. It's not like I can play RO to relax either.
