Why Play Pandora MU
First of all, I would like to thank you for having interest in visiting our website and playing on our server.
Pandora MU is here for several reasons, not for other reasons, and we hope you will appreciate it!
It's a private MU Online server, founded by Ragnaros (me) in 2007. Not for testing server files, not because someone asked me to, and definitely not to setup a money maker, unlike, sadly, most of other server owners nowadays.
The main story of how this all started was me being a very active MU player on both retail and private servers and I wished to create something where I can handle things the best way I can and as my friends and other players would love to. We are improving every day and hope we will become the place to be when it comes to private MU servers. Every update we do, takes longer than usual, only because I always put quality above quantity, the process has to be logical and the result a proper one (OCD much?)
We do not support custom items, NPCs or anything of that sort. Our donors cannot buy custom gear or any other benefit that a regular player cannot get. In our shop you'll find only weapons and armors +0+Luck and 3 Exc. Options or Sockets, nothing else. Here is a list of items that we never plan sell.
Fun (sad) fact, did you know that there are (a lot) of server owners out there that have over 5 (FIVE) servers (read domains)? Each with at least 3 sub-servers of different rates (they call them "flavors"), now the fun part is those communities usually have a life cycle of under 6 months, as their owners always have some "Grand" opening going on which makes the players shift from one sub-server or server, to another, and when their previously "Grand" opened is slightly emptier, they close it claiming it's underpopulated and you've guessed it, they open a new one (which they already had but went through the same suffering cycle at some point in the past).
Unfortunately, there's nothing we can do about it, but you can, by choosing to play a server where dignity and community spirit are NOT dead.
They even claim big words... "professional", "premium", "quality", yet, they wipe databases as they are unable to do a simple upgrade from season to season.
In 11 years Pandora MU had only 4 fresh starts, with our longest database lifespan nearing 5 years, after which we implemented major gameplay changes (such as No Wings at Web Shop) that were incompatible given what players already had and the in-game economy status.
90% of the administrators out there have near 0 knowledge of the technicalities behind the server and the game client, being a customer of IGCN, I'm bound to see some "amazing" support questions, that make me wonder how these people even remember to breathe? Then there are those rich boys trying to pay others to setup their server and configs for them.
We are here to be a nice and big community, where we don't have anything to hide and where we don't need to lie to our players.
We only ask you to be nice with other players and to respect our rules!
"OK, but others players here already have resets and items and stuff?!"... If you are too comfortable starting given the things presented above, then this server may not be for you. I find it hilarious how people hate wipes but they also complain about starting on a long-term server. YOU CAN'T HAVE BOTH, but if you join us, we guarantee you'll have a hell of a good time in no time. And if you have suggestions to make the start more enjoyable, let us know!
