  1. So basically then it will repeat the same mistakes? Can't wait for Goddess of Destruction update
  2. Aha, i see. So basically the classic version is a graphically remaster of the old areas not just 1x drop rates. But didn't the Live version already remastered all areas? How hard is it to just adjust mob drops and release the whole content as classic?
  3. Just curious, why is every classic server i see always 1.5 or 2.0? NCSoft, Innova, illegal servers, they all let you get the classic experience with half the map removed. For me classic was when i played 10 years ago, i'm not sure if it was C4, C5 or Interlude, but i had all map available. Catacombs, Necropolises, Valley of Saints, Valakas Lair, subclasses, i had everything and it was friking awesome! I admit it was a illegal server (but a very good populated one). There was no L2 Store in it. No P2W elements. Because it was a illegal server all quests short of class quests were disabled. Exp and adena drop were 1x, there were no instances and no reward quests, so for me that was a true classic experience with almost all map and content available. What happened in the official server after 1.5 that made NCSoft remove catacombs and necropolises and maps like Valley of Saints that they are not part of this classic version? Were the quest rewards too high after 1.5? Did they change the drop or something? Why are they not part of classic? Because i frikin loved the catacombs and the new maps back then and they had the same 1x classic drop rate on the server i played.
  4. Ingame reality vs forum reality

    Since you can buy SoulShots with IRL money it should not be relevant seeing well equipped C or B grade players. It's not hard to raise money if you are a Pay 2 Win user. By playing with your wallet you get to level up fast and farm very efficient since you don't waste your adena on consumables. So game is extremely P2W since it lets you progress faster than others, and Lineage is all about progression.

    1. I agree, support is well needed and liked but the discussion was about the EU Server where it's hard to raise a low level support with no party since everyone is high level and it costs too much to dual box in order to raise one from scratch 2. Yes, buffs and ss/sps are a privilege, but it should be a privilege you only get in game for your hard work. Not a P2W privilege.

    Your argument is solid. But the key phrase is "later on in the game you absolutely need live support players instead of boxed ones". L2 EU doesn't have a fresh start hype to bring new low level players, server is old so everyone is already high. So if you want a buffer you can't level with it, you need to power level it with an alt until it's big. So again same problem, impossible to start on EU without a box. Which brings us back to the 50 euro price range.

    I don't understand why you hate boxes so much. There are no players with a full box party, the average is 1 player + 1 box. My question is why don't you consider the box a full player? if you're in the party with a player + his buffer box do you not get his buffs? Do you really want to torture a real person to to play a buffer where his only activity is buff people every 20 minutes then watch Netflix? 25€/3 months becomes 50€/3 months on EU Server because you do need a box to level since population is super low abd everybody is high level so you won't find any party below max level.

    WoW someone defending the most P2W company in the world saying it's not P2W. You do realise they sell double damage shots on the store for IRL money. Or straight up damage buffs. Everything that gives the paying user a straight up advantage over the one who doesn't pay for such an advantage is straight up P2W. Most freeloaders would gladly pay a montly fee for a fair competition but what ticks them off is the fact that you have a superiority complex for calling them "freeloaders" despite you destroying the game by alowing such business model. Let me remind you what hapened to the old classic game we played 14 years ago. Everybody was so happy paying to win that ncsoft decided to even remove drop from mobs so more people would pay 2 win. Refusing to continue to do so made the population drop and forced NCsoft to release this classic version. Game will not die if you refuse to pay for such a service it would just force NCsoft to develop a more fair business model people will accept and pay. But that will never happen as long as people willing to pay for an advantage exist.

    +1 for the burn, i can already feel the superior wallet warrior mob forming to defend their p2w practices
  10. NEW SERVER SEA

    If they do open a new server for you it will still be in Texas just like the rest. They will only adjust the timezone to benefit your hours. I'm not sure how you can play smooth since server is on the opposite side of the world. I'm from Europe and had 1500 ping, basically 1.5 second delay to all my actions so i gave up since it was unplayable. We will never be able to play lag-free because NCSoft sold us to the russians. I would say to play lag-free on the EU's Innova server but i can't recommend it since it costs 20 euro/month to dual box there on a old empty server. And if you play without box good luck finding a party on an old almost empty server where everybody is high level.
  11. You only say that because you play on a fresh server. Even your official l2 server became F2P in time because it couldn't hold on to players still paying monthly subs or get new players after so many years. It's hard for a new player to catch up with the high level players on 1x rates without a box. This game is 14 years old so only a fresh start generates enough hype to bring many new people at once. Without the fresh start hype L2 is just an old game where a new player would feel too left behind to start without seeing many people at his level. EU Skelth is not smart because they could have used your fresh server hype to bring new players to their own decaying server by lowering the prices on the dual box. They are even more greedy than NCSoft, they rather see their server empty than lower the price or make a dual box discount.
  12. Us europeans don't want to play on the EU Skelth server because it's a dead expensive server. Server is old and empty (probably about 400 players online, they refuse to share the numbers) so you need to dual box because you won't find a party until probably very high level so that 10 euro/month becomes 20euro/month for both windows. 20 euro/month is a lot to play on an empty server, it's not that we are cheap, it's that it's pointless to even start. If they would make an offer so that 10 euro/month would include a box than people would actually afford to play there and servers wouldn't be so empty.
  13. Are you suggesting for him to handle this things like an adult? ..Like settle them in court? You do realise that's how adults handle business scams, they sue the living shit out of them.
  14. Unfortunately they can't do nothing because of Innova. As a European i already gave up playing on the Texas server because of the 150-200 ping. It's impossible to dual box since any macro longer than 3 lines makes my box sit still for 3-4 seconds before doing any action. Takes 2 seconds just to attack. NCSoft never had any love for Europe They sold us to the russians who ask 10$ subscriptions per window for a shitty classic version that is so instanced you can't even call it classic.
  15. Proxy, to reduce ping

    As a European i quit playing because i find it impossible to play with 1.5 second delay on a Texas server. Especially since i am dual boxing, any macro longer than 3 lines makes my box sit still for 3-4 seconds before he performs an action. It's shame that we don't have a propper classic like this one in Europe since the rights belong there to Innova. Our european classic has a subscription model and since i'm dual boxing i would have to pay 20$ a month for 2 windows which is insane but i would still be willing to pay that for a propper classic like this one. Our version is heavely instanced which is the sole reason i'm not playing it since it ruins the "classic" experience. Shame, i really wanted to play a classic like this one with propper ping, you guys are very lucky, low drop and all. Hope Project TL gets more love in Europe than this game did.
