I believe people already answered this.
The main reason is it isnt a clone off of another game. It offers what those clones don't and those things are the things I enjoy. If you want a really good answer ask the hundreds of thousands of customers why. Go to the Ragnarok World Championships in Korea during July, and I am sure you will get a thurough answer.
*Ahem* it is a clone off another game. The game is called Ultima Online. The first and greatest MMORPG. Get your facts straight.
Ultima Online- ApocFinal Fantasy XI Online- NabaraWorld of Warcraft- (Coming soon :P)
i play on australian servers because racism is acceptable there
The skill systems aren't even the same. This game is based off of experience gained from killing mobs. UO is skill use. There's no way this is a clone on UO. Oh my, it's top-down isometric... That doesnt make it a clone. Spells are different, skills are NOTHING alike, and there are classes in RO. And before you tell us to get our facts straight, dont post opinions:
"The game is called Ultima Online. The first and greatest MMORPG"
All fact there. Wait! whats this?
"and greatest MMORPG"
This is CreativeName's fancy schmancy sig. Let the 'ooh'ing and 'ahh'ing commence... Now.
This game was fun, until the bots came in by the thousands. Gravity pretends that their trying to get rid of them but seriously, why would they get rid of half their customers? It's just too tempting to bot because the game turns too repititive. Kill a monster, get exp, take the loot. Pretty much nothing changes after you switch to 2nd class.
But still if you can handle the bots and lackluster management then you should definately try this game out, it has it's own unique feel to it that brought me many happy hours.

*COUGH* speaking of getting facts straight, try again, UO was the second or third MMORPG, not the first.

ALL OF MY OPINIONS!
This game is horrible, just horrible (Simon's voice). For one I absolutly HATE anime, worst thing that I have ever come in contact with. The game is just a big blah fest. If you actually pay for this crap you are insane. This is truly one of those games that you say to people "Get over it and grow up". The game is just completly overrated and there is no possible way i would EVER play this game again. I hope you liked MY opinions and I personally don't want to hear any crap about it. Have a nice day!
bgm = incredible

Still I can see where I comes from. I here it alot about Ragnarok Online.
Like the other millions of players i too are waiting for Raganrok Online 2.
I've been playing iRo for about two months now. At first I thought it was cute and I was having fun, and it was addictive until the boredom truly set in. The leveling system is far too slow once you hit higher levels, and the added grinding aspect of having your characters be "reborn" and "transcend" so that you start from scratch all over again is simply a way for Gravity to extend the life of the game, waste your time, and bilk you for the monthly fee for as long as they possibly can. I don't really hold that against them, it is a business after all.
However, the game is so infested with bots that some areas are practically unplayable for the honest player who is actually present at the keyboard. This game was made to be exploited, giving the players certain items and skills that make it that much easier to bot, or to simply go afk while their pet fights for them, as the alchemist class is infamous for doing. When you must compete with other players as well as bots to get what tiny little bit of experience you can, it slows down the progression of your character immensely, and I was feeling a bit like a bot myself, truth be told. The recent double experience events were really the only thing that kept me playing, and once that was over, so was my addiction to Ragnarok Online.
