WHAT:           Asiasoft Online ("Asiasoft") today announces the rescheduling of Ragnarok Online 2’s Open Beta Test ("OBT") to 3 rd January 2013.

Initially slated for commencement on 27 th December 2012, the OBT was met with overwhelming response from players across the globe, resulting in severe congestion of the game servers and websites. After careful and deliberate consideration, Asiasoft has decided to reschedule OBT to 3 rd January 2013 to ensure that all issues are resolved before the game proceeds any further and to prevent any further disappointment.

The regretful decision to reset all character data with wipe just before the servers reopen official on 3 rd January 2013 was also made in order for the publisher and game developers to be fair to the majority of players who were unable to access the game servers last night.

Mr Sherman Tan, Chairman of Asiasoft Online, has expressed his apologies on this issue with a personal message to the players on the official Ragnarok Online 2 Facebook fan page at

From now till OBT, Asiasoft and Gravity Co., Ltd will be working hard to resolve all game server issues and will be performing occasional stress tests on the game. Players are welcome to participate in the testing and the stress test schedule will be released shortly. For the latest updates, please visit the Ragnarok Online 2 the Facebook fan page at .
