  1. The problem is, alot of randoms are running around, griefing with the bot button for people who are multiboxing. I myself have two computers sitting next to me, and can effectively run 2 toons almost as well as live people doing them.
  2. Just a thought, You are banning many people for "account sharing" and "billing differences" causing people to lose 5+ days of being behind the curve. Meanwhile you have top "spenders" who are sharing accounts and logged in 24/7. I understand that you are purposefully hampering the XP/Adena rates, to slow progression somewhat, but it's not really working anyway. There's several CPs that are already in the hardest area and in their mid 60's. So either ban the bots and fix the adena/spoiling rates so the rest of us who aren't getting "driven"/"rmt" can catch up, or just keep ignoring the problem and we will get there eventually but PLEASE don't keep arbitrarily banning legitimate players. I've already seen many quit, many who stopped spending due to the issues, and unless something comes across soon, I think it will cause more to leave/stop spending. We all want a fun and nostalgic experience, so far while it's been fun to actually party and craft again, it's also been extremely disappointing.
  3. They pretty much made the SwS to need macro for the new way debuffs work. Its always gonna be a double edged sword. With it you get live "botting" and without it, you have almost no activity. The people with many pcs and keyboard macroes will win the day now. (Obviously its coming back to live, i mean for anywhere where it wont exist because people got used to it.)
  4. best trio for fastest leveling

    What is the way they have unlimited mana?
  5. Double XP both started 24 hours early (thursday night) and ended 24 hours early (saturday night) on stated times. It is off as of 15 hours ago. @Juji @Hime This is messing up the average player for weekends. Any chance you can turn it back on?
  6. Remove looping macro

    Do people look at this through rose colored glasses? Bots have been at every level of L2 since right after its inception. They will be there on Classic. They dont care if they get banned, they will just restart another toon. Macros is a leveling the playing field type of thing. I can play with hands, I can play with keyboard spam, I can play by macro. I don't bot, won't bot. I want everyone to be able to compete with them. If they remove macros, have fun paying your russian overlord for the adena you will need for anything. kthxbai
  7. Remove looping macro

    exactly. They just don't understand what removing macro will do to the server. Don't understand poor kids in other countries play this as a job. No macro = death of competition unless you pay for it by RMT. period.
  8. Remove looping macro

    regular "solo" players won't be competitive without RMT anyway, comeon bro, get real. Have you been playing the game for 14.5 years too? Its ALWAYS been this way. That "top" player you are talking about will drop $$$ on top C/B, powerleveling, etc. Do you want the P2W wallets to be the only competition on server? The problem is, I know many of them, people who have zero issue dropping tens of thousands of $$ a year into L2 just to be top. I know a person willing to drop $5k on top C armor/weapon as soon as it's available. The average joe/family guy cannot compete with that, the poor countries players cant compete with that. Give them a chance to CP a full 9 man, farm materials, XP, like the TOP will anyway.
  9. Remove looping macro

    They, I REPEAT, will not keep up with them (the RMTers), When these groups are dedicated, unless they have a GM who will be online 24/7 to ban them over and over, they are a persistent thorn and will be around, 100% guaranteed. Again, taking away looping macros will do more to stop legit players having full parties leveling than anyone else. This has become the norm of part of how to play now. The curve of XP is already HARD, most wont survive that alone, taking away looping macroes, you lose even more. I want the community to be as big as possible for as long as possible. Please consider a poll here before you make the decision Juji!
  10. Remove looping macro

    @Juji I completely understand both sides of this argument. However, you have two distinct groups of RMT farmers incoming to this server who will be using illegal 3rd party, and account sharing to farm RMT 24/7. Looping macros can assist them, however, it benefits live/legit players A LOT more than them, as most of them will be botting. The kind of grind times that will be needed to be TOP level and relevant to server is insane. Your average player base (those of us who started in teens/20s without families, have families now and most will not be able to "nolife" for 10-12+++ hours per day (without breaks). Loop macro allows a healer to take bio, a buffer to be boxed when dinner is ready, a phone call to be taken, and in my opinion it was one of the best/worst things to ever happen to L2. Anyone with a nostromo/logitech can replicate the macros anyway(often better than the slow delayed ingame ones), so why remove them? This seems like a decision to benefit RMT/Botters rather than legit players.
  11. Somebody that has played this on other versions, did mobs "leash"? or can you pull giant AOE trains like back then? If no ability to do "trains" like before, then I can't see how this will survive for anyone that can't play 12+ hours a day.
  12. @Neutron, Considering the failed attempts at deploying XIGNCODE and the ninja deleting of our Chili Stews without fair warning (when these were paid items). I have a solution alot of us would probably be ok with, What about extending the event another month? That way everyone can cycle through the rewards twice? With the new update, everyone is constantly XPing. Catbuff and Attendance would be excellent for another month. Thanks!
  13. Server Maintenance: Wednesday, August 15, 2018

    Xp rates are nearly half Conguero. Everywhere i checked, xp was less.
  14. Seiges/Mass PvP

    Predictions after these changes? I feel like most fights will be A LOT shorter.
  15. Reflect Damage - What Nerfed It?

    Its still good in OIympiad, but there are items for defense now, compared to before, there were much less.
  16. Doubt: Divine Expansion vs Inspiration

    I generally dont have any issue with being overbuffed without either of these learned. (We dont have much in the way of self buffs, except 30 minute self buff and either defensive/offensive skill) , so theres nothing really to push us to the limit, especially with only 4 melodies now.)
  17. Shield Wave Bug in Olympiad

    Yes it looks like you replicated the affect. Now if its tank vs tank with full gear.... Imagine the life "melting" even faster than just happened with your boxes. Its like the feed off each other to make it lethal sometimes.
  18. Instances

    Since this update, instance zones/instances in general have had a lot of bugs. Throne of Heroes, porting an alive toon outside for no reason. Tauti porting out 3/7 toons without them using escape.(they were alive) SOEing to get party cake at Altar, and losing instance zone immediately (<10 seconds) and not being able to port back in, while still having the zone on reuse timer There have been more bugs than this happen to me and my CP, but these are the ones I remembered to write down to share.
  19. Monster reset (Rubberband)

    Since this update, monsters are resetting at much shorter distances than before. For AOE xp, this is extremely frustrating and annoying for this change to happen for no reason. Aside from not agreeing with it in the first place, is there any way to get the range of reset slightly boosted? (Ive seen mobs resetting when pulling less than 600 range from their spawn). Reset should be minimum of max range of ranged DDs. Currently 1100 range attack skills exist, why isn't reset AT LEAST the same distance? This is also apparently bugged when you try to run a mob "off of agro on you, and it follows you for twice the normal reset distance", it seems to reset mobs more so when they are taking damage, rather than just "pulling".
  20. Eviscerator Macro Delay

    Keyboard macros / Nostromo type macros dont have the built in delays of ingame macros. I'd suggest having a laptop/2nd pc next to you and keep the evis on a keyboard macro.
  21. Shield Wave Bug in Olympiad

    I've also seen a bug, again tank vs tank... where it appears like some poison/bleed hits both tanks at same time, and their life literally just melts off. Only seen it twice watching Olympiad and not sure which tank was winning when the "damage" started. These are big issues as Tanks matches and their Tank VS Tank battles are an important part of clans Olympiad participation/farming.
  22. 50% xp

    Its stated that it will remain till the 17th, however, over last 2 days, XP has been significantly less for field xp. I believe it got turned off on Wednesday Maintenance. Please check. Thanks
  23. Honestly not sure if it will better/worse the normal servers, but many private servers and people who fled to Skelth/EU/etc would return. I think it would be a success if it is as I said. If it is classic that has been launched in other regions, then no, it will be a failure. Merging all servers (down to 2) and releasing a new server (3) sometime in the near future, would make the most sense if they wanted to bring in any new blood... (Merging to less than 2, will eliminate dim siege, raid, etc) and totally eliminate their server transfers process, so they would lose revenue there I think.
  24. @Hime Can we get absolute confirmation that bringing normal summoners with normal summons hitting as a a raid force, is not considered an exploit? This thread has caused panic among a lot of people who were using the normal mechanics to help break the barrier. Your support ticket teams is claiming "Using summons of any type for barrier breaking, is an exploit"
