  2. Being fair and not taking sides

    These two subjects are entirely unrelated. Attempting to force them together to make some glowing indictment isn't a productive means of having a discussion at all.
  3. Conguero, Neutron

    Please don't direct thread titles to NCSOFT staff members. From the forum Code of Conduct: The subject of this thread is also already active in the thread to which I responded yesterday. It doesn't need a separate one. Thanks.
  4. Hello all, With the Freya server having been merged with Naia last month, we'll be closing down the Freya Server Discussions forums next Wednesday, July 18. While these forums aren't really active currently, I'm giving you this heads up in case there are any posts or threads on these forums you want to save for future reference. Please do so at your earliest convenience before the forums are removed. Of course, going forward, you should feel free to converse on the Naia Server Discussions forum. Thanks! Conguero
  5. GM's ruining gameplay?

    Hello all, Firstly, I want to apologize for the delay in reply to this thread. We've been following your responses closely and further discussing the matter in question internally. As the OP rightly pointed out when kicking off this thread, the original action we took to remove a player's Antharas Fighter (Top-Grade) and refund its crafting materials isn't a service we typically provide. Nevertheless, it occurred due to a procedural error on our part. When other players began ticketing in to question this action and make similar requests of CS, it was initially decided that we wouldn't reverse what was already done, but nor would we change our policies and perform similar refunds for other characters. Given the context and all of the circumstances surrounding this situation, we continued to deliberate among the Lineage II leadership team. We've ultimately decided that it's more negatively impactful to the community to allow the original reversal to stand. As a result, we've removed the two high-grade weapons that were crafted with the materials we refunded, restored the Antharas Fighter (Top-Grade), and returned any additional materials that were used to make the two high-grade weapons. To be clear, the original actions we took meant that there were no great solutions to this scenario. Whether we let things stand as they were, or reversed our actions as we now have, we knew that some players would end up dissatisfied. Again though, we feel that reversing our original actions was the better option, and we've done that today and already communicated with the affected player. Thank you all for your reports and your patience while we discussed within our team next steps toward a more reasonable resolution.

    Hello, When we get all the information for the next update ready we will review what kinds of items are deleted and impact it will have, among other things.

  11. Hello, With the upcoming Security update around the corner, we'd like to test commonly used programs you might run in the background while playing Lineage II Here is an example list: Steam / Steam Overlay Origin GOG Uplay Teamspeak Discord Ventrillo OBS – Open Broadcast Software Media Player Classic VLC Media Player Geforce Experience Spotify iTunes Google Chrome / Youtube / Netflix / Amazon Music / Amazon Video Fraps If you have a moment, please let us know by replying below what kinds of programs you think are necessary to work to not interfere with your Lineage II game experience. Thank You!
  12. Hello Adventurers! Below you’ll find a few noteworthy items and updates coming in the month of July. Security Update In our ongoing efforts to combat unauthorized 3rd-party tools, we’ve invested into a completely new security solution. When the security update is live, GameGuard will no longer be required to connect to the servers. A new tool will take the place of GameGuard and be required to install and run to continue playing Lineage II. There will be an unspecified break-in period with the new tools—we’ll be monitoring and troubleshooting issues it may cause, such as disconnections or update errors and compatibility with certain applications. The decision to make this change came with the goal of having greater control over our security tools, and allowing us to react much quicker to existing and emerging cheat tools. Ancient Cloaks Return in July After a lot of feedback about the difficulty in upgrading the cloaks, a revision to the Ancient Cloak System will be introduced. Server Transfers As a reminder, server transfer applications will be available again next Thursday, July 5, and transfers will resume Wednesday, July 11. Yours, The Lineage II Team
  13. I want my name back!!!

  15. Red Libra VII is Coming June 20!

    XP Numbers will be different in each territory~ In general the XP curve should is easier up to level 109-110, but from what i can tell the new 'soft-cap' will probably be around those levels until a future update would introduce 110+ content to the game. To that side though, the time between the soft-cap being addressed should be much different this time, while many people were eagerly awaiting for a way to advanced past 105 since early 2017 (1.5+ years), the 2019 update we will receive should have 110+ content so progression won't be blocked so much and hopefully those on the upper end of levels won't need to wait as long to continue with progression once having exhausted progression in the upcoming update. Thanks

  20. Freya-to-Naia Server Merge Guide

    On Wednesday, June 27, 2018 during weekly maintenance Freya will be merged with Naia. With this date rapidly approaching we want to make sure players on both servers are aware of how they'll be affected by the process. First, it's important to note that the plan with this server merge is to transfer Freya characters and clans to Naia directly. Players already on Naia should therefore feel little impact beyond welcoming additional players to the community. Our goal is to ensure that this process is as smooth and pain-free as possible for everyone, but especially for those of you with characters currently on Freya or Naia. Check out our guide to prepare yourself for this merge .
  21. Game servers will be down for maintenance beginning Wednesday, June 6, 2018 at 5am PDT / 7am CDT / 8am EDT / 1200 GMT and ending at approximately 7am PDT / 9am CDT / 10am EDT / 1400 GMT. Estimated downtime is 2 hours. With this maintenance: 20 Hero Coins will be automatically granted to any player who purchased the Ultimate Jewelry Box (x150) Limited from the L2 Store between May 16–29 and received 180 Hero Coins, instead of the intended 200. Standard database maintenance and application restarts will be performed. Other updates and reminders: La Vie En Rose's Brooches remain on sale until Wednesday, June 20. Full details will be posted Thursday, June 7 for the Freya-to-Naia server merge scheduled to take place Wednesday, June 27. Red Libra will return later this month! Shine on, you crazy diamond. If you have any questions about the changes taking place during tomorrow's maintenance, please feel free to post them on the forums. We also encourage you to follow @L2andAionOps for maintenance and server status updates.
  22. We said in the original announcement that video creators could go with a more animation approach rather than strictly using game footage. Since FlorLeFay's video captures original Lineage II art with original music it was accepted. Only four Runner-up Winners were chosen as, unfortunately, all other submissions we received didn't follow this requirement you quoted: This is further stated in "Conditions of Submission" on page 3 of the official rules: Where possible we were lenient in how we enforced the rules, as long as we could apply that leniency equally and fairly to all contestants. Unfortunately, when it comes to intellectual property we have to have strict enforcement. The video you linked is fantastic, as were a few others we received but couldn't select as winners due to the copyrighted music that was used. I'd love to even highlight some of them in the announcement post for others to see, but I can't.
  23. Lineage II - June Preview

    Hello all, Here’s a quick peek ahead at some of the things in store for Lineage II toward the latter half of June. Red Libra Returns Red Libra, Red Libra, Red Libra! The beloved Red Libra event will return later this month and run for four weeks. XP Boost Event for High-Level Players A New XP Boost event for higher-level players from level 99~105+ is planned to help players prepare for the next update, Salvation - Final Chapter. The XP/SP boost event will focus on several different level ranges for 99+ rather than blanket boost to all levels. Freya’s Summer Shopping Bag Stay cool this summer with an all-new Freya’s Shopping bag promotion with even hotter rewards! Server Merge for Freya to Naia (June 27) The Freya server is currently planned to be consolidated into the Naia server on Wednesday, June 27. Server transfer applications will be closed June 18th.

    If we did have such plans, I wouldn't announce them on the Chronos forum just because Mr @ChocolateChip decided to ask (and in a mostly-not-very-nice kinda way at that).
