    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.

    This is an updated Known Issues thread. If you do not see an issue listed here, don't be alarmed. We are still working though and adding information to this thread. If you are still experiencing the resolved issues, be sure to restart your client and update via the launcher. Some issues may take longer to resolve as it may require a patch. Known Issues Ability Point Skills Guardian's Blessing/Berserker's Blessing/Magician's Blessing are not giving 10%/20% XP bonus. Advanced Shader option still shows black textures. The Ruler's Authority Belt has the wrong item description. Muted sounds are reverted back to default after the client is restarted.

    Hi all, As you may have experienced, our servers are currently impacted with high latency. At this time, we have disabled character creation and will soon be implementing other temporary measures such as the 3 client limit while our teams actively continue to resolve the issues. There may also be additional unscheduled maintenances. We understand the game experience has been less enjoyable due to the latency and we are planning to remedy the trouble after the issues have been resolved. Thank you for your patience!

    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.

    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 understand that seeing this type of behavior from other players can lead to a frustrating experience. 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. If your account has been closed, please contact Customer Support.

    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.

    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?

    Juji, I do not know how you view and treat your job or how implicated is your boss but the communication with the customers is extremely bad! Don't say this is a free to play game as it is not, it is a complex game that requires both time and money from your customers to be able to enjoy it's content and the interactions with other players that a mmorpg game should allow for. With every milk the cow event you guys launch you only create a deeper and deeper trench between players in your servers. I personally would rather pay $50/month/box and have a balanced game than the literal crap you guys roll out. So here are some issues ypu only evade an answer for or just don't care about: 1. 3rd party programs users: you (just log in and go to Rift and you will see 100 summoners automated that probably only 1 player is running. Due to bots existing in the game there is a game economics inbalance and an artificial load being created on your servers. I personally know people that would rather buy adena from traders than buy NCOin and participate in your events. 2. server stability is just LOL. This is due to a) your lol staff b) bots you just keep in the game as you do not care c) the fact that you are cheap and would not buy new hardware or cloud services even with the hundrets of thousands of monthly top line d) the fact that you are cheap and you do not hire 1 lousy intern that would log in and simply ban obvious bots (like chars running more than 10 seconds appart through town stopping on the exact same coordinates) 3. The fact that you went from selling hats to selling cloaks and shirts that cannot be obtained in game in any possible way w/o real money and this ruins the player experience. If you want to get to a 100 ppl per server online out of which 99 are cash cows... KEEP IT UP Coca Cola makes maybe 0.5$ per botthe but the make a huge bottom line because they sell to a lot of people. your business strategy is dome by your grandmothers probably 4.The fact you do not have an ingame engine that alows people to earn Ncoin... this would allow for at least some balance to be restored 5. Communication: your player base is actually looking for update news on other servers in KR and EU simply because you have no information available until the server goes down for an update (same for events). When players go to your competitors to read patch notes and see how rewarding are in game events there fw/o people needing to play real money you don't think they stay there? Well I am telling you they do! You will end up with the 100 people online I mentioned above. You are also cheap here as an intern would gather up freaquent questions from your customers and bring them up in your weekly meetings then take the answers and post them. 6. You simply choose to remove content rather than fix issues (f.e. Lindvior) and that is because your devs are probably incompetent 7. your staff is either underpaid or overpaid.. in either case they just do not care about their jobs. you are also most likely understaffed as your management has no idea about how to run the business. they see the line on the chart up and to the right, the get dolar signs in their eyes thinking of the year end bonus and do not care about the 2 year/5 year plans. Milk the cow while it's alive! 8. You do not announce a time for world olympiad as you will most likely make it US time and ok... more EU people will leave, not that you care Disconnects are not just in south America. They are WW and I got throou checking my network, my isp connection, my router and switches, raised tickets to isp, etc and no, the issues are with NC West. THey lack either the implication to aknowledge them or the implication and know how in order to fix them.

    Id like to start off by saying, I am probably a Top 1% in terms of gear player. Just thought I would make this request on behalf of every single player left playing l2 ncwest. We have been hammered with new item after new item for years, with the majority coming in just the last 2 months. The player base can't keep up with this and the gap is widening between even the top end and super top end players by an insane amount. I have a ton of gear, but the people I pvp sometimes have so little gear I could just stand there and they would kill themselves. The novelty is fun but it wears off fast. This is not sustainable. Even from a purely profit driven motive, a company should want its product to last longer rather than shorter? As a professional Cow, let me tell you how we would like to be milked. Bring old events back like cloak/circlet/agathions with much better success rates or possible even already enchanted items for 1/3rd of the ncoin price so players with less disposable income can catch up at a fraction of the price. I don't mind if this means I paid more for my items 1 year or even 6 months ago. I understand a company needs to make money, but they can do it wisely while keeping intact the integrity of the game. These type of big sale promotions I believe would bring in just as much money, as well as balance out and bring people back to the game. And if this promotion doesn't work, hey at least you tried, hit us with the sayha talismans and artifacts the following week. Let the big spenders like myself, be 3 or 4 steps ahead of the pack, instead of 10,000 steps. Just my thoughts.

    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.

    There are topics and pages and pages and pages and pages of comments and complaints in this forum about NCSoft's management policies concerning their own rules of conduct regarding botting. Players comment, players suggest, players are involved with the problems concerning the BOTTING and ADENA SELLING on the classic servers. IT IS OBVIOUS NCSOFT DOES NOT CARE ABOUT BOTS OR ADENA SELLERS. NCSOFT IS BENEFITTING FROM THE EFFORTS OF THESE CHEATERS BY TAKING MONEY FROM THEM IN LIEU OF BANNING THEM! But NCSoft, are you getting more money from your bots than you are from your live playing members via VIP contributions and L2Store purchases? You can't butter your bread on both sides, NCSoft. You have rules. YOU NEED TO ENFORCE THEM!! You are OBVIOUSLY not enforcing them!! Every field is full of BOTS. No live playing member has a chance of easy hunting because we have to compete with ALL THE BOTS! Lineage II is bleeding real players daily. people are quitting and going to other games or non-NCSoft servers to get away from the extremely poor management on official servers. Don't you people on NCSoft staff and management get tired of seeing the same old tune in your forums? DO YOU EVEN READ YOUR FORUMS? I don't believe you do!!! so SHAME ON YOU NCSOFT! for continuously punishing your real live paying players by allowing bots to overrun the servers!!! SHAME ON YOU NCSOFT for not enforcing your own rules!!! SHAME ON YOU NCSOFT for not bringing your management up to acceptable levels of competence!! SHAME ON YOU NCSOFT!!! If i didn't love this game as much as i do i wouldn't play it. but i am disappointed more and more every day as more and more bots infiltrate the fields. PLEASE INSTALL A LIVE GM ON THE SERVERS TO GET RID OF THESE CHEATING PARASITES!!!! PLEASE DO SOMETHING! RESPOND TO YOUR PLAYERS IN THE FORUMS, ACKNOWLEDGE THE ISSUES THAT ARE BEING REPORTED TO YOU!!! STEP UP YOUR MANAGEMENT OF THIS GAME AND START DOING WHAT'S RIGHT FOR YOUR MEMBERS WHO CONTINUE TO PUT OUT THEIR CREDIT CARDS AND CHECKBOOKS FOR YOUR GAME!!! DO BLOODY SOMETHING! IT IS NO LONGER ACCEPTABLE TO HEAR FROM NCSOFT STAFF THAT "WE ARE WORKING ON IT!!!" THIS IS NO LONGER A VIABLE EXCUSE!!! YOU HAVE HAD THREE AND A HALF MONTHS TO FIX THIS AND NOTHING IS BEING DONE, THE PROBLEM GROWS WORSE DAILY!!! DAILY!!! DAILY!!! AND WHY?????? BECAUSE NCSOFT DOES N-O-T-H-I-N-G ... YES, NOTHING.. NOTHING AT ALL ... TO FIX THE PROBLEMS!!! Your attempts at making programs to block third-party bot scripts are not working!!!! it's time for you to do something new!!! put feet on the ground and fix this!!! @Juji @Hime @NcsoftFTW DO SOMETHING PLEASE!!! OR IT WILL BE FOREVER SHAME ON YOU!!! Sincerely VERY ANGRY PLAYER P.S. Anxiously awaiting a REAL response from NCSoft. No longer is it acceptable to see a canned copy/paste generic response to these issues. NCSoft MUST get involved!!!!

    I am sure the devs, gms, and moderators have noticed the server populations are half after 3 months. Running average around 3-4k on TI and Giran, from a start of 6500+ often from the beginning. They are failing for several reasons. 1. Adena for normal players as a group cannot even pay for porting or gear. This server settings are so low I know of several people that quit and went back to core/live/skelth 2. Drop rates and spoil rates of normal items and spell books etc are extremely low. 3. bots are rampant, and random non-bot people are getting banned instead. (I would beg to disagree with NC that hundreds of people since xincode was added spamming forums about wrongly banned were all or most lying.) 4. Random server lag, shot lag, crashes, login problems. They literally had years to prepare and classic servers from korea/japan/russia/eu to reference fixes. 5. General lack of care about its customers, this company has is and has been a money pit, and when theres a problem its all automated responses. Deleting peoples posts on forums to hide the dissent and complaints. Etc. those are my opinions, the server numbers don't lie. when wow classic launches later this summer, mark my word these server populations will drop in half. it will be 1k real players and 1.5k bots on TI and Giran.

    I am so thankfull the 3 client limit has arived, very good job from ncwest. 1. No more acc1 t/m 30 name characters ingame. 2. Faster XP spots taken less players to pk. 3. No more queue for sure. 4. Less loading in hunting zones cause less characters to load. Ncwest keep up the good work.

    Couple of things: If the ranking system is an element which is effecting latency, then remove it. The ranking doesn't really reflect how effective people are in game anyway, as many play their dual more than their main. If you should have such a system, which is updated weekly, base it on player contribution, irrespective of main/dual activity. Similarly, go back to the maximum of 3 account logging at any one time. Although I love it, remove the auto macro system.... let's go retro and go back to old school methods... but only if this is impacting on latency! As players invest serious time and in some instances, serious money via L2 store in the game... make sure that the 'mechanics' are fit for purpose. And finally, really listen to the gamers'.... majority have been in game 5, 10, 15yrs.... we love the game, we just get frustrated at the 'stuff'. Oh.... and final, final bit..... increase clan sizes again!

    Auto hunting will be enabled again after the maintenance tomorrow since disabling it did not alleviate the latency issue. We will be making changes to our hardware this week to reduce the CPU usage as much as possible.

    Ranking system issue is also being investigated as a potential cause.

    I concur. It is important to NOT have constant scrolling chat in the chat boxes. I need to see ONLY the chat information from my Clan, Ally & Whispers. I don't want to miss those messages because of all the CRAP filling the chat boxes.

    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

    We had so much fun for the past week or two - can we just forget today has happened and roll back to our classicish lineage2 that we enjoyed so much? Sincerely, All

    Max will join ds once again this coming week. Who want to cast rune can come and take it, we have no interested in holding that castle. Let make Lineage great again and take some of the cancer away. Also we do not make video that 2 hours long into 3 min long to show how great we are.

    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

With this maintenance: Optimizing the ranking system selection checks to improve server performance Auto hunting UI temporarily removed Thank you for your patience!

    Shadow of the Kamael - the final death of crafters who make money on shots (yes there are toons that make money off of that). Also, nice side benefit of killing the crystal market as well. I agree with ZTerminator, for the dwarfs/toons that either spent days or weeks getting a rec or spent adena on the rec.. will there be reimbursement? Oh who am I kidding.. the answer is going to be "hahahahahhahahahaha no; you will take you beating and like it".

    Well, well well new update, new problems, new level etc... This is bleeping outrageous !!! NCSoft you managed to do what we have been expecting to happen since 2 years ago WELL DONE !!! Lineage2 has become Lineage2Robot. You have removed the PK penalty(which was a very important part of this game), now you have removed the max. 3 client per PC, auto macros etc... my question is : WHEN YOU WILL REMOVE NCWEST from the Lineage 2 servers? Shame on you ! Good luck on making your VISA/BOT community !!! Have fun and GL TO ALL!!

    After 30 minutes of trying to figure out how to log in, I have found a method that has worked for me and few clan members. *You will need two accounts for this method to work* Step 1. Sign into account #1 and get to server menu. selected server and wait for "This client will be closed. Continue?" and hit Ok. Step 2. Don't closed the previous launcher, Open Lineage 2 launcher again and this time sign into Account #2 and get to server menu. Click on your server and here it should let you log into the server. step 3. (optional) If you want to log into the previous account as well, Dont close current launcher and just open another lineage launcher and sign to Account #1 as normal and should work.

    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.
