So, I've been wanting to get back into Ragnarok Online. However, I have neither the inclination nor the ability to pay for the official servers each month. So, I've been looking for one of these "free servers" which I've heard so little about. I managed to find quite a few, but they all (at least, the ones I've bothered to read up on) seem to mess with the rates at which you gain exp/items/etc. Now, that might be cool for a little while, but I have a feeling it will get really cheap and annoying. So, does anyone know of a free RO server that doesn't mess with rates (a little bit would be okay, I guess, but not 50x. That's just dumb!) and is up and working at least some, if not most, of the time?
Also, does anyone know if RO lags when played on a 56k connection? (I'm asking for a friend, of course. I have 3mbit cable, I swear!)
