Why Play Pandora MU

history

First of all, I would like to thank you for your interest in on our server.

Pandora MU is here for a few good reasons, and not for serveral other reasons! Hopefully, you'll appreciate that.

It's a private MU Online server, founded 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 the other private server owners nowadays.

How it all started? Well, with a ton of curiosity and me being a very active player on both retail and private MU servers. I wanted to learn and create something where I could handle things the way I considered proper, and as my friends and other MU players would love to. We are constantly improving and hope to become "the place to be" when it comes to private MU servers. Every update we do, usually takes slightly longer to complete, because the result has to be perfect and the process has to be logical (OCD much?)

We love the original game and therefore we don't support any custom modifications. Our donors cannot buy custom gear or any other benefit that a regular player cannot get. In our shop you'll find only weapons, pendants, rings and armors +0+Luck with 3 Exc. Options or 3 Empty Sockets, nothing else. Here is a list of items that we never plan sell.



Greed Is Good

Did you know that there are a lot of server owners out there that have over 5 (FIVE) servers? And by servers I'm referring to web domains, not PvP and Non-PvP, and each of those servers with 3 or 4 sub-servers of different rates (they call them "flavors"), I'll let you do the math. The sad part is those servers only last a couple of months, as their owners always have some "grand" opening planned, and that makes their players shift from one sub-server to another, because for some reason I've always failed to understand, people are drawn to fresh bullshit. What happens next? It's quite simple, their previously "grand" opened server no longer gets any attention or updates and it soon becomes a ghost town, down to the point when its owner "decides" to close it, claiming it's underpopulated aaand... you've guessed it, they now have free resources for another "grand" opening!

You can easily recognise those servers by their cheap stroboscopic banners and poorly written news that bring enlightenment to your soul and can almost even make you lose belly fat! They don't have support for a community (of any kind) and no ways to contact their administration. And no, a placeholder Facebook page doesn't count.

Unfortunately, there's nothing we can do about it, but you can! By choosing to play on a server (even if it's not this one) where ethics and community spirit are not completely missing.



Dream Big, Little One

We've all seen it, big words... "professional", "premium", "quality", "no shop" (dig deeper), and yet they wipe databases with every new season because they are too incompetent to perform a simple upgrade, or maybe they don't want to? Most people will believe their stories about "incompatibility" anyway.

In 12 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 or crafted items at the Web Shop) that would have made no sense otherwise, given what players already had at that time.

With very few exceptions, most of the private MU server administrators have 0 knowledge of the technicalities behind a server and the game client respectively. There are tons of help request topics on RaGEZONE and IGCN forums that clearly show that not only they have no clue what they are doing, but that they are not even willing to learn or do any tiny bit of research. There are also some rich people that pay a random "genius" to setup their server and configure it for them, do I need to point out the lack of dedication and how "future-proof" such servers will ever be?



So, are you in or out?

Our aim is to provide MU players with a decent server, which they can trust and a community where they can make friends. Transparency is key. We don't have anything to hide and we will always keep our core values.

We only ask that in return you follow and support our Code of Conduct.

"OK, but... others players here already have resets and items and stuff?!" Well, if you can't be arsed to join us after reading everything above, then honestly, this server is not 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, end of story.

If you have any constructive feedback that will help us make the game more enjoyable, let us know!


Best regards,
Ragnaros
