  1. Respectfully, when do you respond?

    Hey Hicc, I know what half of the members here are really aggressive/rude, but I don't think that's the way Yidao's reply was intended. He's more pointing out how NCSoft doesn't care about whether the game lasts any longer or whether us "peasant" players are worthy of their response, simply that they make money. The "Limited time only" offers are the best way for them to make a ton of money off their items and gambling events. As money is more important than their product (L2) they don't care for our opinion on this stuff, they won't change anything until the day (this year or next?) that they pull the plug on L2.
  2. Circlet of Power Event

    There's definitely server settings that are implemented to change success rates for all "random" things in L2, but I don't believe it is related to server population. I've augmented circlets a lot since the very first day of the event and until the weekend it was giving a rare augment every 10 or so stones. Since Monday I've had maybe 3 rare augments in over 200 stones applied at different times. I'm in the EU so my playtime covers both peak and quiet times. The rate has gone stupidly low and it's not a co-incidence or run of bad luck. The same happens with all events, the servers are set to scam people with high reward early on and lower rates later. There's also setting so that there's more chance of mobs dropping items etc based on server time, that used to be really noticeable with the events where items dropped from mobs and they admitted that one.
  3. The thread all of the complaints were posted in was the weekly maintenance thread. Part of the weekly routine is that those threads get archived and a new one is posted. The complaints weren't archived in order to hide them, they were archived as part of normal routine as they are unimportant and no reason to make an exception for. I'm sure if the posts were in their own thread without and forum violating titles or comments, then the thread would remain open, where it could be ignored for longer until people just gave up.
  4. I'm completely with you there, I've played Support since 2005 and have always been just under top teir with gear. However now Tier 1 is the dragon weapon stacked toons and 2 is probably the top gear lvl 5/6 jewels, no dragon weapon toons. I guess I'm below that with lvl brooch 4 jewels, ekimus, all epics bar lindi etc. In last siege I was happily tanking most MS parties and even Truffle etc were managable outside of full skills. It's still way not enough to be competitive in oly or a strong open pvp dd etc when I start leveling my dual. It's a shame because I used to really love Olympiad and open pvp gank runs etc. My setup still cost a fortune compared to what many have, it's cost a fortune compared to what any sane person would spend in a game, however I'm still tens of thousands of dollars off the top players stuff, and in an almost dead game that's a crazy cost. People slightly worse gear than me can't touch me, but people with slightly more gear then me will destroy me, there's just no curve or balance for any competitive play left. Even 2 years ago I was bored in oly as it was just either easy win or easy loss, never a fun fight.
  5. Event is good

    Before anyone bites, just remember: Don't feed the troll (who seems to lack intelligence and knowledge of the return key).
  6. I think I get what you're trying to say, but the way you make it sound is ridiculous. It'd be crazy to make the current OP stuff harder to get, for the simple fact of how massive a gear imbalance it all adds. One of the problems is that the top items are far far better than the 2nd top items in a lot of cases and in cases where they're not, they're still very good in comparison. Stack it all together and you end up with the massive gear gaps we have in the game today. The game has always been much better when the difference in gear and levels hasn't been so prominent. Before the +6 etc set bonuses etc people still had top stacked gear, they were stronger than normal toons, but they weren't so far ahead pve and pvp wise that other players couldn't catch up. Hell, they added so much OP store junk and gear imbalance to the game that they had to boost the mobs to accommodate for it!
  7. Responsible Gaming Payment Limits

    That's a really narrow minded comment to make. Just because you've never suffered from moments of compulsive gambling or poor impulse control doesn't mean other people don't. It's a pretty common thing and I'm sure a lot of the people left playing this game do have impulse control issues. These events are targeted at them, not you. What Quitted wrote is a typical example of how people spend money in all of these events. Personally I'd never even think of consciously spending $200 directly on an item in a game, but I'd spend $40 for a chance to win, then $40 more when I lose, then 8x $40 more and end up with nothing but $400 lost. People lose more impulse control and spend more when they're losing, it's basic psychology. @Quitted I know I shouldn't have come back, but I still love the core game and my old friends. I actually have about $1500 or so play money after bills etc each month, so I don't mind hobby spends, it's the need to gamble without a way to cap it that really sucks. I was spending $300-400 a month playing Magic The Gathering in real life and it was great, met a lot of new friends I go out for beers with and trips out of town, I even got a bio on the official website after doing well in a big 1000+ person tournament. I need to save up actually as I'm going with the guys to a big Grand Prix in Barcelona soon.
  8. Responsible Gaming Payment Limits

    Sadly it's not even about the competition, it's just playing the game in general. I can tank a ton of damage in sieges with my current setup (Truffle gave up on me twice last siege), Oly is just a case of gear, so I gave up on that a while ago (although I used to love it), Open PvP is generally extinct as it's just a case of waiting until a big spender comes along. The problem is just having the gambling pushed on players each month at such outrageous prices and hidden low chances. Without a limit it's easy to intend to spend 8k ncoin for "a little go", but end up blanking out and spending 100k. That's why gambling websites have to have options to limit your spending, that's why I want to know how to do it here.
  9. Responsible Gaming Payment Limits

    I don't have that limit, and even if that limit was applied I'd want it much lower. To the staff (I don't want to link your names since that seems bannable) How can I set a limit?
  10. How do you set up the responsible gaming limits for ncoin purchases? I'd like to set up a limit of 12000 ncoin a month for my account. I've managed to find these settings on poker and other gambling sites, but it's not so clear here. Thanks

    So sad to see what's coming. That's what greed does for games I guess though.

    I wonder if the players of Lineage 2 Revolution know about this? I'm sure Netmarble would love that we all shared it on Social Media to their L2R playerbase. I'm getting spammed daily from their app with amazing new events like this right now.

    I think Private servers are probably cheaper, more balanced, have better support and have less chance of getting the plug pulled than officials right now.

    There's no mention of anything having a chance to fail, so it can't fail right? I mean if it could then they'd have to mention it otherwise there'd be a lawsuit on their hands. I really regret coming back to this game. It's not even just paw 2 win anymore, it's a downright exploitative scam. This is a really good point to quit again and put anything spent in here down as a gambling loss and stupid mistake.
  15. Beware of scam

    Don't give in, keep opening and trying to get your ticket properly looked at. I hope people get reprimanded for this sort of behaviour (I.E. the employees who are doing it and whoever manages them).
