pRO to launch new Thor server
Date Posted: Sep. 15, 2006
For Philippine Ragnarok Online players who want a fresh start, a new and better beginning will be arriving very soon! On September 21, pRO will be launching an entirely new server called Thor. Named after the Thunder God of Norse mythology, Thor server aims to encourage players to start a new life - bringing them back to their gaming roots and restore the basic elements of playing online games.
One of the main features of Thor is Ragdefender. This software helps prevent illegal third-party programs from entering the server and allows true online gaming to exist for all players to enjoy. Now, Ragnarok players can experience a more fair play and once again feel the fun and excitement of being with “real” players – the way it should be.
Aside from just being a new addition to the server family, Thor has its own original background story based on the events happening in pRO. The storyline revolves around a brave adventurer who seeks to find a cure to a virus born from evil and which is threatening to infect the whole land. Players can uncover more of the story as it continues in the Thor server and upcoming Ragnarok episodes.
Players can also look forward to other Thor events like the RO Grand Prix (tentative title), a guild-based PvP (player vs. player) tournament which is expected to hit all servers this October. Plus, a special launch bonus for players in Thor—a week of 3X Modified Experience from September 21 to 27.
Enjoy the new beginning!
