Hello all. All these is going to be suggestions to improve the appearance of the server and its attractiveness.
As you may know, while the important part is the server and what it has to offer, first impressions are always the door for the success. Myself already visited this website before and didn't try it out because of the following reasons I'm going to explain.
1st: The website needs love: it needs a simpler, better and modern design. It looks unproffesional, like it has be done in 5 minutes because the gm didn't care much. Also, there's a lot of unnecessary links, which of all, one is another webpage with exact the same design which is completely irrelevant to the prior one, the CP. Couldn't it be mixed and have a full featured website?
2nd: Entering the server is actually tedious, you need to dowload a whole 2gb client without an optional lite version for those who have already RO installed, it makes people questioning themselfs if it's worth it downloading. There are some countries where the downloading speed is not enough for considering testing the server.
3rd: Account creation, while the system has sense and it's just 1 more step, people just want to make an account and enter, maybe the account creation method should be reconsidered.
TL;DR: The website needs some work, first impressions are important and you're possibly losing users who could be interested.
