  1. PSA: Game Trading

    If you are trading for items in other games please remember some very important rules/guidelines: You are only allowed to trade POINTS for items in other games. You cannot trade items from RRO, only POINTS. For the following guidelines, I will use this example: Bob is trading a weapon from FFXIV to John in exchange for 500PP. You MUST make a post/reply/PM to me BEFORE you make the transaction. This post must be made in a way that affirms the entire outline of a deal. i.e. "I (John) am trading 500PP to Bob for [item name] in FFXIV," then Bob needs to reply accepting it. This is the log that will be used in determining who's right/wrong in the event of a dispute (i.e. a scam). You should trade the out of game items after verifying the buyer has the points in RRO. John would show Bob his 5x 100 point coins, then Bob would trade John the item from FFXIV, then John gives Bob the 500PP. Both sides should screenshot every aspect of the trade, especially the parts taking place in another game. This is the ONLY order that works because if John is a scammer we can forcibly take the 500PP from him. If you trade the 500PP first then Bob can run off with it and we can't get you those items in FFXIV. If that 500PP is already in the economy it's gone forever. If you violate these guidelines we will not help you. At most, we will ban the scammer and that's it. You will not have any items returned to you.
  2. Happy 15th Anniversary! Claim your rewards!

    As Rebirth.RO enters its 15th year, we have to take the time to see what we've accomplished over the years. We are responsible for many of the innovations in the private server community. We invented Dyna-Hats, @noks, and more. We have a lot to be thankful for too: no wipes, our newfound independence, and our new lag-free hosting. As I stated in a previous post, in honor of our 15th year we've decided to celebrate in many different ways. The first of which is a free set of donation items for every player. To claim your items visit the mall and speak with "Rebirth.RO 15th Anni" (114/90) and select them. These exclusive items will only be available during the anniversary festivities. As this year goes on we'll add more items to this NPC. Not all of them will be equipments, but there will be lots! Thank you for playing Rebirth.RO.
  3. New: Premium Tiers

    A long requested feature has been something to reward small donations. Until recently there's been a big emphasis on getting very large donations. As we don't care as much about getting those large sums anymore we've implemented a new feature that rewards a donation as small as $5. The new Premium Tiers system rewards you with bonus items depending on how much you've donated in a month. This includes direct donation, loot box, and SuperRewards. Let's say you made a $5 donation. This would let you redeem Tier 1. 2 days from now you decide to donate $10. That would let you redeem Tier 2 and 3 as well. The tally resets on the first of every month which lets you redeem starting at tier 1 again. Note: This system includes all donations from this month, even those made before the announcement. Credit goes to Casey for coming up with this system.
  4. War of Emperium Changes

    I think it's no secret that WoE has been in a decline for quite some time. It was bad before the coup and it's only gotten worse since. We've been wanting to make changes to WoE for some time, the biggest block was time. With so much emphasis placed on generating income, not much time was ever left for content. Changes for WoE require a lot of thought and planning. WoE is delicate and requires very intricate changes to maintain the balance of challenge vs fun. We need to add rewards to WoE that don't require you to have the rewards in order to do WoE, otherwise, you end up with the initial guilds being unable to be challenged by any new guild. This is a trap many other servers have fallen into. Buffing god items, especially, is delicate. If they become too strong and guilds hoard them then new guilds cannot offer a challenge, they will get frustrated and leave. At the same time, the items need to be powerful enough that people will desire them. So, what changes do we have planned? Well, lets split this into 2 parts. We'll talk about the changes that will be in the next 2 maintenances and some changes that are planned for farther down the line. Upcoming WoE Changes The first change will be to castle treasure and god items. We don't have a lot of specifics as of yet but we will be rebalancing castle drops to include more useful items and less garbage. You'll also be able to upgrade god items (add slots/stats) using new materials, currencies, and Zeny. Future WoE Changes I think the biggest future change is we want to start rewarding those who participate in WoE, even if they don't obtain or maintain a castle. People that go into castles, be they hitting or healing, should be rewarded, win or lose. With our new, faster, server we can now log additional information including damage dealt, damage resisted, damage healed, etc without causing any lag. This is important for this change and was the primary reason we couldn't do it before. We will then issue rewards based on this information, so the more you participate the greater the rewards are. We'll even log how long you (your character) were in a castle (vs not in a castle) and how long you (your guild) held specific castles. We plan to reward a new WoE currency for this that you can redeem for items. The items will vary from equips to hats (w/stats) to costumes.
  5. New/Returning Guild Promotion

    To continue to celebrate our 15th anniversary we're starting a program to encourage new guilds to join or former guilds to return. The offer is available to guilds of 15 or more returning members or 20 or more new members. You must return or join as one (as in, not recruit from the existing player base). Being a WoE guild is not required. New guilds will receive an Emperium and the guild will be leveled to level 10. Returning guilds can be leveled up 10 if they are under level 10. Both new and returning guilds will be offered a small guild town (no NPCs). If you want a larger guild town you will have to pay the difference. Each member of the guild will be given a Guild Promo Box. The box contains: 1 account bound Great Old Set Various cards (you choose from a list) 2 Accessories (you choose from a list) 1 Weapon (you choose from a list) 1,000 LPP Several consumables used for WoE (look at the "WoE Supply Box" loot box, it will be most of those) The box itself also acts as a Max Level ticket. It will level a character to 255/120 trans job of your choosing. In addition to the above, we will be giving out a new set soon with exclusive sprites equal to a donation set (+30/+30/+15). This will be for everyone, not just returning guilds. I will also give a guild town to any guild that has 15+ reps (unique IPs) during 4 consecutive WoEs regardless of the join date of the members.
  6. How to report spam from Syphon to the Dutch government

    lmao
  7. How to report spam from Syphon to the Dutch government

    Cheating?
  8. How to report spam from Syphon to the Dutch government

    The last one just called me a liar, boring.
  9. Syphon has been sending out as many as 8 emails per day with no way to unsubscribe. This is illegal and he can be fined for each email he sends. This post contains information on how to properly report that to the Dutch government. You should follow these instructions for every email you received, even if the emails were identical, or even automatically or manually flagged as spam. First, you must download each email. Instructions to view raw emails are available here. Depending on which email service you use, either click download original or once you are viewing the raw email right click and click save as. Make sure to save each email you received (if you got more than one save each one even if they are identical) in the format "rebirth bv email <date>-<#>.eml" i.e. "rebirth bv email 2018-01-28-1.eml" Once you have them all saved go here. The website is in Dutch, do not try to translate the page as doing that seems to break it. Don't worry, the screenshots below show you what to type and check. After you've filled the form out, click the button at the bottom of the page. On the next page click on "Choose File" (that will be in your own language because the text is generated by your browser) and select the email you are reporting. In the text box enter the email address that sent you the email (he's using a few different ones so check to make sure it's the right one). Click next again (looks the same as above), I had to disable ad block to be able to click next for some reason. On the next page, you need to fill out your own details. This includes your initials and last/family name. If your name was John Disco Smith you'd put JD in the first box and Smith in the last/family name box. Click the submit button. They will send an email verification to you. Click the link in the email to verify your address. You will see a success message. Repeat this for each email you received.
  10. Rebirth.RO - Future Vision

    We are now a month into our liberated server era. We're hours away from our biggest maintenance which will occur as Asia goes to sleep, the server is getting more attention and content than it has in years. But most of this is happening behind closed doors and you, our players, cannot see that. This post is to inform you of where we are and where we are headed. This is going to end up being a fairly long post but it should be well worth the read. This is not an all-inclusive list, we have much more planned, but I won't be covering all of it because I want at least some of it to be a surprise. Where We Are At We've actually talked a lot about the short term, but still, I want to cover it anyway for those that have not heard. As stated in the coup announcement, our primary goal was to reduce the lag, especially for our Asian players. But we, of course, are not stopping there. We are adding new tiers of Cedi to the server this maintenance, there will be new weapons and armor available via Fairy vs Angel Wars, and there will be a new pet and changes to Dyna hats. These are important changes. The new monsters in Cedi will be challenging, the hardest monsters we've ever created. If you were bored of how easy other monsters were these will be right up your alley. In the distant but not so far away future we'll be having a Valentines Event soon, as well as Valentines limited items. Where We Are Going The future holds many bright things for Rebirth.RO. We're extremely excited for this year, not just because of our newfound freedom but we're also celebrating the servers 15th year and we will be having quite the party. This party starts with free items. You'll obtain them simply for being the wonderful players you've always been. Some may have small quests, but they will be for old and new players alike. We don't want anyone to miss out! We'll try to add a few new items a month. Some of these items will be hats (both costume and stat-adding, some comparable to or equal to donation items), some will be equipment, and others will be consumables. We hope to reduce the focus on donation items as well as restore the economy. One of the primary goals of our new Cedi tiers is to restore the value of MVP cards. Thus, these new tiers will use special cedi points obtained from the turning in of MVP cards to complete. A new BCA will be introduced that is better but harder to obtain, preserving the card market. More details will follow after maintenance. Some people have asked me to add MVPs to the MVP arena but this is probably one of the worst things we could do. Adding more MVPs to the MVP arena would ruin the economy for those cards, making them just as worthless as the other MVP room cards. We want to improve our economy, to make items worth having again, not devalue them further. One of the most important changes we have planned is the reduction of the barrier of entry into WoE and the addition of guild packages for guilds that wish to join or return to our server as one. Details for this will be released later on when we have specifics, but this is definitely in the works. We want to restore WoE to its former glory. We all yearn for the days of a thousand plus people in WoE and we will get there again! We'll also be adding new rewards to WoE including participation based rewards. I know some of you have noticed a decline in the player count but this is primarily because of a few reasons, namely the drama that unfolded as well as the constant lag. But another large reason is the lack of advertising. I've been waiting for this maintenance before advertising, so you should start seeing the online count recover very quickly in the next few weeks.

  13. Emergency Maintenance

    The server experienced an unplanned emergency maintenance caused by a kernel panic. The database was scanned for errors (no errors were found). A full backup was run to be safe. All services are now restored. We apologize for any inconvenience. No major data loss is expected (~ 5-minute rollback at most). 23:45 UTC - Main server kernel panicked. 00:15 UTC - Forums, Community, Bugs, Support, Eir confirmed clean (no data loss) 00:19 UTC - Web services restored. The main site remains in maintenance mode until after the backup completes. 00:28 UTC - Loki confirmed clean (no data loss) 00:31 UTC - Thor confirmed clean (no data loss) 00:32 UTC - All databases confirmed clean (no data loss), full backup begins 01:13 UTC - Backup complete, compressing begins 01:15 UTC - All services have been restored. There may be some lag issues until the backup finishes compressing.
  14. Guess who's back

    Acumen vs RED rivalry returns?
  15. Rebirth.RO - Quick Updates

    I wanted to update everyone on what we are working on. However, first I want to reiterate there will NOT be a wipe of this server. Those rumors/talks are about Syphon's new server, not our server. New tiers of Cedi scheduled for release this weekend, this includes the new challenge mode. Testing for the new hosting set to begin this week. I've changed how the email newsletter subscription works Newsletter Subscription Changes We here at Rebirth.RO care a great deal about keeping our players happy. In an effort to reduce unwanted emails I've upgraded our website to integrate directly with our newsletter system. The site now accurately displays whether or not your email is on our mailing list and allows you to add or remove it. It now goes by email rather than account, thus subbing or unsubbing from our mailing list will be reflected on all your accounts which use that email. If you wish to manually subscribe you may do so here.
