Not true.  Ragnarok Online certainly has not only map names but
coordinates within the map, so that you can communicate your location to
the other players.  It also keeps statistics on the number of active
users.  The only thing it doesn't have is (4), or at least the maximum was
not publically known back when I was actively playing it. :-)
