Added DiffLines:

* NoExportForYou: Played with, as the game was released worldwide. However, due to Europe changing its protection of data privacy laws in June 2018, the game is no longer available to play in majority of countries belonging to the EU. A few exceptions exist, though.


* BigInJapan: This was once the most popular MMO in Japan; essentially what ''World of Warcraft'' was for America. This is especially notable in anime and manga that take place in (or have features of) MMO gaming, as they borrow a lot of mechanics that were better known in ''Ragnarok Online'' than other titles.

* {{Homage}} / ShoutOut: The advance job class of the Gunslinger is called Rebellion. Many Westerners seem confused as to why it isn't called Rebel. The movie Film/Equilibrium is known as ''Rebellion'' in Japan and Korea (because the original Equilibrium title doesn't translate well into Japanese or Korean). The film has a major pop culture following in those two countries, and the GunKata inspired Gunslinger is just one of many examples found in manga, anime, manwha, and video games. The advanced job class is directly named after the movie.

** While the hacking incident that almost killed all of gravity's plans for RO is famous there are some lesser known things that could had been.
** there was a America (has in USA) theme town/city and dungeon planned at one point a BGM called "Antique Cowboy" seems to be all that is left of this judging by it's title as Cowboy is pretty much a american concept.
** the trans second class Creator/Biochemist was originally suppose to have the animated solder pads that the 3rd class Geneticist has in their idle battle stance but players liked the look of the non animated pads the Creator/Biochemist got enough to keep them.

Added DiffLines:

* ExecutiveMeddling: As noted in the description, after Gravity was nearly destroyed by a hacking incident at the end of the first closed beta, Samsung 'saved' them by buying them out. Samsung then put a director in place to oversee the recovery of the almost totally destroyed game, who tried to impose his radically different vision on the design team. Samsung caught wind of this when a very large portion of the design team proceeded to rebel and quit, however, and pulled the director, installing someone else with instructions to leave the development be, and while some damage was done, disaster was largely averted.
