    I could make a wall of post, but I will save the time. @Juji @Hime please remove the pay to win Dragon Pendent from our L2store. We recognize that the server needs sustainable revenue, please bring back subscriptions, or if you are unable to do that, make VIP status more attractive with larger drop/adena rate bonuses such that enough players will purchase NCCoins (And spend them on more innocuous items, like tp scrolls, shots, cosmetics). Classic was not what we really wanted, but it's closer than anything else. Please, anything but pay to win. You will kill the game that we all love so much, so much faster than is necessary. That's all I have to say about it, but I'm sure I echo the community, I can say for sure I echo my party and my clan.

    How is it that you're so fast to comment on something so useless as this but can't respond to you community? This game is going down the chitter at an alarming rate and you tell us you changed your email!

    Hello All, I have been reading all of your replies in this thread and looking into different options with the current 15th Anniversary event. The dev team requested that we quickly remove the cake raid event to prevent further instability and abuse on the Classic Servers. I tried spawning the Fioti NPC manually today, but there was no message prompt for claiming a reward or the instant XP/SP. The Fioti NPC seems to be directly tied to your character's participation in the Cake Raid. I will ask the Dev team if they can adjust the raid without the top rewards, while only granting the XP/SP. In the meantime, we plan to add a compensation pack to the store next week. Apologies again for these recent changes to the event! Best Regards, Juji

    First of all you need 2 accounts. - Start a first window of lineage, and press "agree" (then DON'T press "ok") - Start a second window of lineage with the second account, and press "agree" (then DON'T press "ok") - On the first window, click "ok" to join the server. It will opens the error message : "the client will close, continues ?", press "ok again". The client will close. - and quickly press "ok" on the second window, and you will access to the character page ! Enjoy.

    Please +1 if you would like this issue fixed. So the 15th anniversary reward for 15 year old players today was a raid master outfit, which can neither be destroyed or put into your warehouse. With all the gear in this game, my toon is almost always 120/184 inventory. Yet to switch class I need to be down to 95 inventory. Switching class from main to dual class, something that should be simple is very difficult. This is very annoying mechanic to the game that I feel can be easily fixed. Can I get some support? Maybe the Dev team can look into this. This 95/184 cap, makes it difficult to keep buying gear. And the most bound items added to my toon the worse the situation gets. Pretty soon Top players will not be able to switch class. This is a very simple quality of life issue, ncsoft can fix. We just need to tell them as a community that it is important to us that they fix this.

    While I'm all for businesses making money in a capitalist market and more than willing to spend some of my disposable income on hobbies and things I enjoy. This just seems ridiculous. God jewelry? Shouldn't you guys be bridging the gaps between those at the top and newer players not widening them? Or is this just a death knell cash grab from NCWest? These jewels coupled with dragon weapons you will turn the already godly to literal unkill-able gods and if anyone knows anything about lineage 2. It wont just be 1.. It'll be a group of them. Because one shotting entire fields of players who haven't invested tens of thousands of dollars into the game (Current) isn't enough? Gotta add even more gap between those that are already on the top and those trying to play catch-up. Don't forget NC... There needs to be a vibrant in-game market for your L2 store to survive. Unless of course you cut out all of us middlemen and just start selling fully enchanted SA'ed gear in the L2 store. Which honestly, I could see at this point. So honestly, what's gonna keep anyone who's under 110 playing? There's little to no reason to Oly or CoC unless you've spent upwards to $10,000. There's little to no reason to siege as there's only two real markets in this game that can and will yeild taxes. Aden and Giran and everone who's anyone knows only the top of the top clans ever own those. Oh and the rest of the castles? Well I guess you do get that fancy flag/stance when you go idle in game... From my siege experiences, it's usually 1 group attacking just for target practice. They wipe the defending force, take out the towers then just farm kills like it means anything. Because after all, they've got to justify their investments, right? And yeah, still getting one shot like it was nothing. Something like 200 billion worth in gear and still can't do a thing. Anyway, before I start ranting about current balance issues and meta. This game used to be so damn good when there was little to no RMT and it was actually punished instead of incentivized.. Not so sure I will be bothering anymore. You're asking newer and returning players to climb Mt. Everest while you add more obstacles and height to the climb. All while those who are already at the top haven't a worry in the world. This is the greatest news they could hear. The peak they stand on just got taller. And now I feel bad because I invited friends to return to the game. Anyway, server will go up and people will craft their god jewels in the first 10 minutes because they can.. While the rest of us are left to spend stupid amounts of money and or time trying to catch up. Good call guys, good call. Was thinking my L2 spending habits were getting out of hand. Now I won't really have to worry about it.

    These items are pay to win Boss Jewels. Have you all even consider what this going to do. You already lost tons of people due to the massive amount of bots and lack of community organization, even worse customer support. Im not sure what to even say anymore. At every point in this server you have failed the community.

    Scammers There are unfortunately unsavory individuals looking to make a quick Adena by gaining your trust or by misrepresenting what they are trying to sell or buy. The best way not to get scammed is to be extremely careful. Take an extra look before pressing okay, and be aware of the potential risks you’re taking on. Be wary of any character who asks to talk about a trade outside of game (Via Facebook, Discord, Skype..etc), as they maybe trying to gain personal information or hide their true intentions from our in-game logs. Our Support team will not be able to help you restore items lost as a result of a scam. Bots There are some individuals trying to game our system for personal gain and profit. We do not support any kind of automated gameplay in our game, and any accounts found doing so will be closed. Our team closes numerous accounts daily for illegal third-party usage, and will continue to do so. We have an in-game system that allows you to report cheaters and automated gameplay. You report them using the ‘Report Auto Hunting’ action button. Only use this system to report characters you think are being suspicious – abusing this system may result in actions being taken against your account. You can also report illegal automated gameplay through our Support system, and if you chose to do that, please clearly indicate what you’re seeing and the offenders’ names. Please include screenshots if possible. Adena Sellers Unfortunately, the same individuals who exploit our system with illegal automated play are also trying to make a quick buck at your expense by illegally selling you Adena. We handle these accounts the same way we handle illegal automated gameplay—by closing the accounts as soon as we discover the activity. While it might not be the account that has been spamming you, we close accounts daily and will continue to close them. You can report Adena Sellers through our in-game system by right-clicking their name in chat and select ‘Block Adena Sales’. You can also report illegal automated gameplay through our Support system, and if you chose to do that, please clearly indicate what you’re seeing and the offenders’ names. Do not buy Adena from Adena Sellers as that supports these illegal activities along with putting your own account at risk.

We are continuing to mitigate the impact of these types of activities as we continue to improve our detection methods and use the information provided from the reports that come in from our players.

    Don't give us this pathetic excuse of "I don't know what the future holds" you are the one signed on the "producers letter" so you should have a clue about fafurion and the future, this event is a cash grab to support the new classic patch and to give the live server something to fight over while you make Bank on classic, any so called "producer" should have a clue what's going on, or are you now just a random NCWest employee?

    I would love for this server to thrive. But it is literally the worst L2 server i have ever played. It is like NCSoft West intentionally wants to kill this server. I have 4 different VIP 4 characters in this game and have decided to give it a chance before i quit. I still have hope. So i decided to list some of the big problems i observed in hope that it can reach someone making decisions (although unlikely). - You advertise the server as free to play and with no Pay-to-Win items. This is a lie and very misleading. How is a server free to play if even your bare necessities cannot be covered from hunting? You cant even cover your SS/BSS + teleport needs unless you spend real money to buy adena. Not even thinking about buying any equipment. - Every month you hold a Pay to Win event. It is undeniably Pay To Win because there is no way you can buy those items when you cannot get any adena and item drops from hunting. Im even sure that if anyone had the time and money they could even take you to court for false advertisement. - You make this stupid 15th anniversary event where u power level everyone but give them no SP while at the same time ignoring people who just started by offering ONLY 4kk xp until 51 lvl. This will create soooo many problems i cant even list them all. You will have a bunch of 70+ chars with no SP, no skills, no equipment and no zones to farm in. What do you expect will happen ? - You actively encourage bots. You are an official server and you really allow botting. You remove bot reporting ingame, and reduce adena drop especially from high levels thus creating a market for botting in the low level zones. It is literally impossible to play active in this game. You even allow adrenaline! Although you wont officially admit it. It is actually quite simple to fix this server. Raise the adena/item drop rates and temporarily raise SP farming. This is all u need to do to make this game fun again. And the only thing that will guarantee you long time active players. I have no problem with paying some money every month to play a game i enjoy. But to spend some money on L2 Store for VIP, then need to also buy adena to cover my basic needs (SS/BSS) and then need some more money for equipment, and then some more money every month for your P2W events.... All for a game i dont even enjoy the way you messed it up. I will give this server some time but i will soon quit if no changes are made. As have so many others and i sincerely hope you see it and do something to fix it. Tagging the GMs in hope they will take some time to read and hopefully respond to our concerns. @Juji @Hime Thank you

    Figured I'd post some info of what I'm seeing. Characters that are still extremely unbalanced. Dark Avenger Fear - Never stops Elemental Summoner - Pet instantly casts 2k AOE from absurd range after 76 Any Summoner class - Resummoning pet gives infinite mana Cubics - Attack Humans that are flagged even when your character is white and you are just standing next to them, You yourself will never flag Game play experience with friends Adena is very inconsistent, the ratio is off for how often something provides the Adena. This also makes people question why even bother using soul shot as well as why even bother leveling in harder areas, just auto macro and do something else. PKers, are ruling the entire game without any negative effects. Currently if you make a character that can utilize the 2 hand swords provided, you can level them to around 30-40 and kill almost all new players attempting to level. This can be done by playing more than 5 clients and loading them into each starting zone waiting for victims. Long Term players The Market and Total player count is now noticeable.(Multiple clans falling apart and items from clan in sell in town) The game now feels and works like other games which a-lot of people stopped playing. (Instant teleport, AutoGrind, Botting, No parties due to Buffer boxed characters, Instances/Dungeons) People are just playing to see what happens. That or because they have nothing else to do. No commitment like before.

    Hello fellow Players, and Staff, We need reliable and official drop / spoil database for NC west L2 classic. First of all, NC Korea has official database, and we have not. Secondly, we cannot trust NC Korea official database (via web translation) because they play thoroughly updated version of classic. Thirdly, we cannot trust l2 wiki EU database, because it is unreliable. NC Korea model with abstact drop / spoil table would be sufficient. Probability rates are, of course, good to know, but secondary matter. All the best, LyNoTex

    Dear @Hime and @Juji, good morning I want to ask you a sincere question: does NCWest care at all about its customers? I used to be a GM of a very popular FPS in Brazil called CrossFire, published by Smilegate West. Our CCU, in the golden years, was 40k players daily. We were based in Toronto, but the company`s HQ was in Korea. Our game was broke, full of cheaters. I believe it is pretty typical for this type of game (FPS), and I felt that we were not doing enough. There was one day, during a meeting with our CEO, former employee of NCSOFT Korea by the way, when I told him: "Video games have to be a positive experience. We are responsible for providing hours and hours of cool moments for people that have decided to play our games. We should care more about our clients, and we don`t at the moment". I quit my job because I couldn't stand the quality of the services we were providing. But, as a GM of that game, I was trying my best. I was playing with our players. I was doing live streams to introduce new content. I created a list of all accounts that were being banned by our team and posting in our forums, including those with more than 5k USD spent in items. I was following the discussions on Forums dedicated to cheaters to see if our anti-cheat system was giving cheaters a hard time. Each GM created a fan page to share a little bit about our day-by-day activities (my page alone had 85k followers on Facebook). We were trying everything we could to keep a positive experience for our players and to be connected with the community. With that being said, and based on my experience, I ask you: what is going on with you guys? Almost no interaction on Forums, unless it is to answer a severe situation or to publish about maintenance. No presence in the game at all. I would risk a guess that your team of GMs doesn't even know the Lineage 2 map. You guys just had an update for XINCODE, and, right after that, the server was already infested with ponies farming afk (go to the boss Lord Kastor, and you will see 200 ponies farming there). It is disappointing to see the mismanagement of this team (not only GMs, but technical as well). A 15 years old game that still awesome to play, with a remarkable story, PvP system, and a passionate community, that has no hope to become better. I met my wife in this game 13 years ago. This game means a lot to me, but the bot situation is becoming more and more extreme. My advice: Be more connected with your community. You should thank us for taking 30-40 minutes to write a message giving feedback to you in the forums. But everything has a limit, and people will get enough and quit. Hire GMs that know how the game operates and clean the servers from bots daily. You will not get rid of all the bots, but people will see that something is happening. Send a GM shout saying "bye bot" when you ban someone on spot." Right now the message you are sending is that the use of third-party programs is worth. Designate a GM to infiltrate "buy and sell" communities (Forums, Discord, Websites, etc). You will find that the top clans are farming items and selling them for real money. Before releasing content, check if the community is ready for it. This Zaken update is coming at the wrong moment, in my opinion. Thank you for the opportunity of playing this game once again. Dion's songs will always bring back awesome memories of 15 years ago when I started playing this game on its open beta version.

    There are like 4 topics here with feedback from your player base on what they would like to see next so imho plenty to work with For the lazy ones here's a few re occuring suggestions in no specific order: - Fafurion update - double XP event server wide at base XP level and all weeks, not limited to weekends - preferable 3 weeks prior to Fafurion update and yes that mean's you guys are being late at this as it is already!! - L2store discount promotion - Monthly Previews posted PRIOR to said Period disclaimer: no disrespect is intended, just constructive feedback

    WWhy don't you simply give us IBAN of Your friends? You make zariche and akamanah available just for 2 clans, spawn is not random and you can see them waiting for it just at The right spot util they get it. Then you make impossibile for normale People/new players to get a Level 1 jewel from a quest, where should a new player get this item? Oh L2 Store with "random" box (don't you know that in some countries selling random items is illegal?). Let's talk about random, during the event there was the cake raid that had to give prizes based on "random" numbers, numbers that randomly where higher for The People with more equip, more ncoins, more adena, not just 1 time but every single raid and more of one time for each of those one, that's how random ncsoft works . You aren't fighting bots, you are feeding Your friends and make other People unable to play

    We put the request in on Sunday for the Cake Raid event with several modifications. I am still waiting on the Dev team's response. There will be no change to the event for the 6/19 maintenance. I will keep you posted once I hear more from the Dev team this week.

    Good morning @Juji / @Hime. I didn't see anything in the Patch Notes regarding the nerf of surrounding areas of Elven Village. Before Fafurion Update, we could get a buff from the mobs that gave us 300% Exp for a short period of time. This is no longer the case anymore. People been there for hours and the buff doesn't pop. Any comments on this? Was this removed on purpose? Is it a bug?

    Hello! Ever since Classic has been released in North America I've felt that something was wrong, after spending the last two days testing things out I decided to do this little project today to illustrate how much the western versions of Classic differ from each other. So I made a Classic on Aden and one on Skelth and set out to see what the differences would be in their early leveling process. Whenever I'm talking about the character on Aden I'll be referring to it as NA from this point forward. Whenever I'm talking about Skelth(the european server) I'll be referring to it as EU from this point forward. The acronyms will also be used for their servers (Giran/Talking Island/Aden as NA) (Skelth as EU). Whenever I'm talking about the Japanese Classic servers I'll be referring to it as JP from this point forward. A few points to consider before reading any further: NA had a VIP level of 0 during the test. EU's level 5 XP/SP Rune was not used. NA and EU consumed their daily hunting fruit. NA and EU leveled after drinking Adventurer's starting potions. With this test I wanted to check the differences between both western versions of Classic, special attention was put into: XP/SP Adena Drop Rate One Human Fighter was created in both clients and killed the same amount of enemies. They completed the Cedric's Training Hall Newbie Quest and talked to the Newbie Guide in TI, then completed the level 2 Newbie Quest and picked a WAND as reward. 5 Over-hits were performed during the entire test for both NA and EU. The testing wielded the exact same results early on, which confused me. But as soon as the characters started fighting higher level mobs the XP disparity became apparent. By the time the quest was completed, this is the difference between the acquired XP/SP and Adena. And here's the differences in drops: Hello again! Now we've added JP to the list of tests! Please pay attention to the conclusions! (This test wasn't conducted by me, credits goes to Fragola. Stream link: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/320497699) A few points to consider before reading any further: JP had a VIP level of 0 during the test. JP completed the quests after drinking Adventurer's starting potions. The Test Goals and Test Format are the same as NA and EU and so I won't repeat those portions here, only the findings from the JP test. Same XP as NA/EU on Gremlins. Same XP as NA on VIP 0 but the adena drop is almost double and even higher than EU's! While the difference in XP will definitely become more noticeable and bothersome at higher levels, the difference in adena and drops is what truly makes both Classic versions feel alien to one another. EU had 4 full item drops including a weapon while NA had a single full item drop. The materials acquired by EU were also in higher amounts and diversity than in NA. The difference in adena only becomes more noticeable as the levels grow higher and the difference increases exponentially. VIP Level 4 gives exactly +25% XP/SP which is what is needed to make NA's experience the same as EU in terms of leveling. The VIP Drop Rate bonuses however do not fix the disparity between the adena/drop ratio. JP matches NA when it comes to XP/SP at Vip 0 but has over the double adena drops. JP is also a F2P server much like NA, with different VIP tier bonuses that are compared under these conclusions. To acquire VIP Level 4 one must spend 50$ and sustain it monthly by spending at least 15$. Per account. To even be allowed to play in EU one must pay a 10€ subscription or a 25€ three-month subscription fee. Per account. Below you can see a table comparing the VIP benefits of JP(on top) and NA(under). You can see how the drop rate is much more dramatically affected in JP than in NA. *Please don't take the results of this small test as hard facts, instead try your own testing and see the results you can achieve. This post was made to try to better inform the staff members and players of our current situation. I hope NA Classic will get patched to be more similar to EU in terms of drops and adena. I also believe the Vip system should be a bonus and not a return to "normal" rates. For this test the monster Goblin Brigand was killed roughly around 30 times by both NA and EU. This time NA had a VIP 3 bonus. XP in EU was doubled for some kills because of the level 5 100% XP/SP rune. The characters were level 12 dwarves. Here are the results NA was actually able to buy 10 BSS not 9. Full test: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/319666259

    And whose fault would that be? All PvP players sitting in the same clan and the only place where u guys could find someone else in the same level of gear for you to fight u decide to be allies. So don't u dare come here on forum crying for merge when its your own fault that there is no pvp in Chronos or dim siege. Every dim siege is the same shit, QQQQ all over the & chat but still MS and DH choose not to fight each other. I could understand a pact of peace between the two clans, but helping each other and defending one another castles is breaking the game. Now i'm curious, what's ur plan after merge? Will ms choose to fight DH? Because as i can see now the only thing will happen with merge is the two clans making a gigantic ally or even merging. So ncsoft can finally shut down the servers because there will be no more servers to merge nor reasons to cry about dead servers. Wake up! There is no pvp because you choose not to pvp. Joining the winning side and bully low gear players is not what makes this game fun. What do u think that would happen when the most powerful clan in the servers send war to every single clan in the game? everybody would acc and a pvp party would start? hahahahhaha Cancel all the wars you have sent and let small clans breath. There are many players who want to pvp but they simply choose not to because starting a war would mean a clan disband.

    I guess we can escape the Live server but we can't escape NCwest management... You could have given the server a long life with minor stuff on L2 store that would only impact the speed people level up and some other cosmetics. Let's be real, 50 USD for a 50% Rune is already more expensive than any subscription at any Pay to play server and should already be enough to make astronomic profits with 4 servers averaging 2k players. You want more profit? Upgrade your VIP system: Add the VIP 5,6 and 7 layers with the benefits close to the Tawain ones. Add new 30-day runes ( 100% xp/sp) for 8k Ncoin, add more boosts to the l2 store. Create a prestige pack or something else for players to support the server and be rewarded. Any of those things would bring enough profit for you to not need to add ITEMS to l2 store, and yet again items that rely on chance to be obtained. NCwest, you have failed again. We could live with the bots free spamming adena sell on towns and the army of bot summoners on nearly every single lowlevel area. That didn't impact our experience in the game, we could have seen past that. But you guys chose the EASY path of gambling inside the game to make your profits, and if that don't stop/change, the Classic servers have no future.

    i don't know whether to laugh or cry at this level of ignorance. bots are a definite issue with L2. NCSoft is relying on the development of a third-party detection program to get rid of them. every time they develop something it works for two minutes then someone writes a new third-party that gets around the security system. it is never-ending. and NCSoft refuses to put GM's in the servers to physically seek and ban the bots. not all servers are as plagued with bots as others but all servers have bots. bots are a product of supply and demand. servers with more whales (high spending players for adena) will have more bots. the higher the demand for adena purchase the more bots you will see. your comment that some people can't handle other people being better than they are is just ludicrous. if someone is playing, for instance, on talking island server it is true there are almost no fields to hunt anywhere. everything is full of bots. and if you need mobs in any of those fields to complete quests, just give it up. you're not going to find them. i saw fields there with as many bots as there were mobs and no mob stood on the field more than a matter of seconds before it was gone. so whatever your own playing experience is, please keep in mind it may not be everyone's playing experience. people are leaving NCSoft's L2 servers daily for a number of reasons including bots. also including NCSoft's lack of respect for its live playing community and the issues with the game that have gone unfixed and unanswered for far too long. NCSoft does not manage its servers well and in many cases the bots are proving profitable to NCSoft either through royalties or because they own the bots themselves. so.. just get used to it? we shouldn't have to. NCSoft *should* be doing a proper job of maintaining servers with integrity, enforcing their own rules against botting and adena sales, yet they refuse to do so. this refusal is a direct result of their lack of respect for us, the people who play this game. maybe if everyone started saying the same things in the forums NCSoft would have to take notice. as it is now all they'll do is moderate these forums to ensure people aren't breaking their forum rules. otherwise we are ignored.

    This team doesn't have a freaking clue. You've been handed an infinitely marketable product and made every poor decision possible for it's future.

    There are no bugs, this is a game feature. Don't leave you're character unattended using a macro system that you don't understand. Some things in this game are harder than buying ncoins to gear up xD.

    Herphah gives quest Way of Wandering Knight and tells you to speak to the Adventurer Guild to get buffs. The NPC gives the message 'The quest buff can only be obtained for characters that are level 85-99' my character (mentee) is 85. Unable to progress quest.

    This is what was come up with? Very disappointing. The Cake Event would have given everyone the ability to easily catch up to 80 for end-game content and an attempt to level the playing field for an unbalanced geared out server. Now potentially the only the people who will take advantage of this 150 XP/SP event are the people who bot/grind 24/7. What about the rest of us who don't bot/can't grind 24/7? I can't believe I am going to complain with everyone else, but this is sad and very disappointing to say the least.

    Over the last months we have been watching the "Company" offering a few free for all events.. This was probably a result of the feedback which the "Company" was receiving from the players, but most of all i believe was a result of the diminishing community of this game.. There were 5-6 servers up and running 4-5 years ago, while there are only 2 now plus the classic servers which after an initial success, have already started to follow the same trend.. Even Naia and Cronos have roughly half the population they had 2-3 years ago.. Despite these free events, the "Company" hasn't changed its policy... They keep requesting huge amounts of real money for the valuable stuff in game.. And not only that, the prices are being increased instead of dropping.. This new brooch event for example is the most expensive i can remember... You have to pay $200 for 150 random jewels.. With the abysmal rates used by the "Company" for upgrading jewels, somebody would need about 5 such packs to just have a small chance to get a lvl. 5 jewel... I don't even dare to calculate how many real money someone will need to get a 6-slot brooch and the price of a rare one looks like a joke.. Prices for new weapons and armors, also look insane to me.. So i have a question and i hope somebody from the "Company" responds at some point: Is your intention to make this game available to rich people who can spend thousands of dollars each month or you believe that the players should be satisfied by being 1-shot and should just killing elpy's ignoring all of the end game? I believe it's a legit question and although sounds rhetoric, i think it needs to be addressed... Thanks

    ...and the fact that there is no official announcement yet, we can safely assume that the dev team is already away for a long weekend, and will find out what's happening on Monday morning (if ever).

    They may come back as a reward in a future event. Permanent.

    So, I slept on it, While I am back and forth on a lot of emotions... admittedly trying to justify "it" and you all know what I mean. I keep saying to myself: maybe they will space the events out six months+ apart, maybe it will be tolerable, maybe this will be the worst it will ever get. But then I follow incentives and I know where it is going. I don't think I've ever been truly more disappointed than now in a gaming company, aside from when Free to Play came out on retail. What's the common denominator? Pay to win. I wanted to play classic more than any other game I've heard of since the launch of L2 retail. I was never so excited; I tracked down 50+ people I use to play with via facebook, whatsapp, linkedin, anything I could to try to recreate my own classic experience! GOD pushed me out with its terrible content and more importantly P2Win, and now they will do the same here. It's truly heartbreaking for those of us who loved to live this game for the better part of our adult lives. I met my wife ten years ago through this game and I have been willing to hang on more than others out of nostalgia, but I am having difficulty justifying it. If someone like me is on the brink of leaving, imagine other people not so mentally tied to the game? The one thing I keep sticking on is that I simply feel cheated. I feel like a kid who was given their favorite toy then had it stolen by a bully, then getting the talk from their dad about how life isn't fair. It wasn't supposed to be this way. /sadpost
