Despite having played for a few minutes in Closed Beta 1, I decided to skip the second as I am convinced Gravity will not fix the various instabilities and bugs found. True enough, the 2nd Closed Beta began with several glitches according to various foreign media. On the first day, majority of the players were unable to log into the game, which is done through the game’s website. On the second day, created characters were either being deleted, undetected or going into “invisible” mode. A lengthy emergency maintenance was carried out, but apparently did not fix many errors. Gravity hence decided to close the game early that day.
The official statement by Gravity, as usual, is that there were too many players (open to all Gravity members) hence causing the login server to be unstable. For the characters going missing, they claimed to have grasp the root of the problem. Ragnarok II’s 2nd Closed Beta will end a few days later on the 17th.
