The load-O-meter (former 9D-O-meter) is a statistics and ranking website, showing current 9 Dragons and Rohan server loads, together with their load history. It characterizes through its opposition to the Adbar, and a free (unofficial) forum for each of the games.
The website was launched on the 15th of June, 2008 as response to the Patch 44 crisis where the official forum was filled with criticism which had been aggressively censored by forum moderators. The site promised a censor-free enviroment and an external way (without starting the 9Dragons client itself) to check and track server loads in an more accurate manner. Also the official rankings from Acclaim were implemented in the site and optimized to allow ranking history comparison.
