Earlier this month, Electronics Extreme announced that they would be merging their Revo-Classic servers for the Malaysia-Singapore and Philippines regions.
"In the passing time, two worlds alike exist living apart, seeing the same sky but standing on different grounds. But as the dark times loom, a call to arms is in need. The two worlds will collide to greet each other creating a whole new world: a world with new friends, new rivals in a timeless battlefield.

Citizens of Midgard, prepare yourselves to meet your counterparts from another world. There will be a server merge between Valkyrie (PH) and Thor (MYSG) servers on July 10. Together, a new world will open: the Valhalla server."

Just 3 days later, Gravity Interactive announced the closure of their own Revo-Classic server.

"On July 11, 2019, Ragnarok Online's RE:START server will be merged into iRO1.

It's been a pleasure to be able to offer the RE:START experience to all you dedicated players for the last 2 years, and we hope you continue to play on our other servers while you cherish the memory of this one."

The Malaysia-Singapore and Phillipines merger is slated for July 10 while the USA International merger is planned for July 11; just mere days of each other. To date, only 6 Revo-Classic servers have ever launched (thRO, twRO, idRO, pRO, iRO, and ruRO). From the beginning, Revo-Classic was an odd mix of pre-Renewal and Renewal mechanics that seemed to have been created to semi-address the pre-Renewal sector of the RO community. Only iRO has ever opened an actual pre-Renewal server after the Renewal update was standardized across all official RO servers. It is unsure what is GRAVITY's overarching goal for RO with all these publisher changes and the support of 3 different versions of the game (Renewal, Revo-Classic, Zero).
