Ragnarok Online MSP Server Slated To Be Shut Down Over The Next Couple Of Months

Sad news looms over Southeast Asian players as the Ragnarok Online Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines (MSP) server of the popular MMORPG Ragnarok is bound to be shut down over the course of October through November.


Ragnarok Online is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) for desktop PC that was developed by Lee Myung-jin and released by the South Korean company Gravity Corp. in August 2002. The game takes place in a semi-3D setting that transforms over time as the players progress through the game. Many spinoffs have been created over the course of several years, including the Ragnarok The Animation TV series that premiered in year 2004 and was based on the game.

However, the Ragnarok Online MSP team officially announces that the Southeast Asian server is finally being terminated after 4 years on the 28th of November 2021 as according to the most recent conclusion with Gravity Co., Ltd. The schedule of service termination is as follows:

7th October 2021
All top-up channels will be closed, and all promotions, activities will be ended.

20th November 2021
Ticket Support of Ragnarok Online MSP will be ended.

28th November 2021 at Noon (UTC+8)
Ragnarok Online MSP Service will be officially terminated


Its closure was first attributed to the comments received from players of the game, as well as the rising popularity or trend of its other smartphone game counterparts, such as Ragnarok M and Ragnarok X, which are beginning to take over the game's market share. But then after, it has been announced by the Electronics Extreme Co., Ltd., the game's publishing licensor, that the end-user licensing deal with Gravity Corporation has already expired.

The following message was left by the Ragnarok Online MSP team on the Ragnarok Online Extreme Website:
