  1. How to refund my purchases ?

    Try asking for a refund from them but if that fails: If you paid by CC directly - contact bank If you paid by Paypal - select purchase and in the Transaction details window select Resolution Center (it's at the bottom) then fill in all the details. Note: you will be banned/acc locked for this, not that it matters, but if you enjoy other NC products, keep that in mind. As for the rest, it's clear that people got scammed, stalled and so on in their vision and don't like the game/haven't received what they were promised. Why go on with the "omg you are noobs, here's my way of getting rich", have fun with the game you're enjoying and just let people leave if they don't like what they got.
  2. join me for a minute

    No breakdown really, i believe most are handling it like responsible adults, they were promised a product that they didn't receive (not to mention got stalled into thinking things will change) so now they're demanding a refund or charging back and never want to hear from NC again, life lesson to be learned. And don't even say "but it's F2P bruh".
  3. ´so rates aren't broken huh?

    See you again when you leave a shop for days in a row trying to sell something but no real-life player farms anymore so nobody buys what you're selling. I agree this server was easy because i adapted to it, but i'm not going to adapt to an empty server, better make Lineage 2 single-player.
  4. Hello, i'm leaving aside the drama or whatever doesn't float everyone's boat right now, and i just have a simple question: does NCWest even know what is going on from a server-side perspective? Let me elaborate a bit, every response to every topic raised since the beginning leads to one simple conclusion: nobody even knows if anything is a bug or intended. Examples off the top of my head: XP 55-56, dyes, rates and the list can go on. It doesn't take a "Rick and Morty understanding" IQ to figure out that out even from the scarce responses like the one today: one day you say "doesn't look ok" then "huge PR-looking explanation of how the game should work and yeah everything is as intended". So in the end, it doesn't really matter what's intended or how the game works because people (gamers in this case) are resourceful and get on top of any situation. It's only the instability and lack of knowledge from your side that blows everything up. Another example of this is when you first boosted the rates, you implemented an untested patch that had unforeseen results, then ninja-patched it and spoil rates reverted to crap without anyone knowing, and everyone blaming it on RNGesus. So maybe someday someone will accidentally add an extra dye and be like "wait a sec, i have +8 str now" and your whole "balancing theory" that covered up lack of knowledge is busted. Bottom line is, a retail server presents (in a normal person's view) stability and it's what people want in any game, what you're transmitting to us is that maybe in the future we'll kill Antharas, get 1 stem and you don't know if it's intended, investigate for a month, while others say it's RNGesus at work and others say "it's F2P mate, enjoy it as it is". Disclaimer: this isn't a rant about rates, port fees, dyes or any other "issues" that people worked around, ranted or stopped playing because of, this is only about the long-term confidence in these servers.
  5. Who cares if it's KR, RU or w/e files, might as well be obvious_virus.exe running the servers, we're not devs here to worry about implementation or w/e, and nobody advertised it as KR or RU translated version. But i agree with point 4 tho, it was a crappy move to fix only 1-40ish rates to stop players from charging back (guess why you started getting delayed or failed transactions) and not state that all is intended and let us be on our way.
  6. 10+ hours without mods

    Not really, some come from P2P, others privates, others haven't even played L2 etc., that's not a baseline.
  7. pk scroll tradeable ?

    This looks like an excusable "oops, we didn't notice" that nobody can say 100% it was intentional, so you have a flame war on the forum that only amounts to nothing, they didn't put an obvious "here is a way to make adena with real $", and if the outrage is great they'll say it's a bug. These kinds of events are common in many domains and it only amounts to IG currency for those with money and frustration for those who don't like this kind of stuff, but at the end companies profit and shrug it off as an oops.
  8. 10+ hours without mods

    I can't believe people are actually defending everything that stands as NCWest, a company making tons of $ and providing less that free service saying "yeah, take it chill, it's free to play". I don't know how you can even raise an issue on this forum without being shit on by others that have little to no stake in it. I fail to understand why the 1st comment of any of the x topics is "yeah, you clearly botted, stay banned", "all is ok, farm more", "it's f2p, nobody is forced to answer your tickets". I haven't seen any F2P service NOT tending to the basic customer support, most of them are better with free users because those are the ones who convert to premium or buy other services. I haven't been banned or "suffered" as much because i shrugged it off and continued playing only how i like, didn't pay for what i didn't like and here i am today. But i'm not playing as actively or paying for anything anymore because all i see is people leaving, so why play 10-11hrs or get a new rune or w/e if i don't see most players enjoying the game or risk being banned. So for some players, entering game, pressing some buttons and not expecting to even play the next day or have make any friends that they could see ingame the next game, it's just as enjoyable as a single-player with some of the NPCs moving more chaotically, most of the people here want to avoid that.
  9. PK Scrolls

    Not enough and not at levels where i had xp scrolls, still, get killed, recover xp via scroll ... whatever ... tomato tomato
  10. Please fix adena/books drop

    Some of them are just forum warriors/troll/clueless, but others do have a point, this version of Lineage 2 is actually easy but cattle-driven, so if you accept the idea of renouncing anything you know about L2 and going with the trend, you're rich/top lvl etc. Wanna know how easy it was to git gud? Let me give you a sample: Create x chars, go to spider quest, leave them afk fishing, leave them afk in ROD for event, leave them afk for candy event. By now you should've had top bow/mage weap so mobs are 2 hits at most, start farming in FT like a piece of human trash: go into a room, say spot taken, start farming, nobody can/will pk all 3 of your chars + ress, even if they do, you're back in 2 min, and even if they ks, you do 50%+ dmg so full adena/drop and less shots wasted. Lineage 2 doesn't use that many resources, anyone can run 3 boxes with today's computers, queue? np, log them on and leave PC running like the rest, get chars to 40 and do the same as in FT: go to Aden Q and pray to RNGesus. I don't like this one bit, i've enjoyed every bit of L2 and farmed every corner, made friends, clan wars, castle sieges etc. This version has everything broken to a mush-brain level and pipelined to simple chores, your idea of leveling a main and farming with it might yield results if you're lucky with RNGesus, but the best bet anyone ever had 'til now was to go with the flow and "exploit" the "quality of life features/events". Correct me if i'm wrong but you will never be as high lvl / equal gear with someone who got x drops of XP/SP from Aden + y drops of Top D weap from z PCs running no matter how much more you play in terms of hours. PS: And yes, don't like where this is going, the number of people actually playing is dropping every day, even 1 party at a time, good luck at top lvl in top gear shining in front of shops in Giran with nobody to pvp/play with.
  11. PK Scrolls

    Is the following math ok? I pk 4 ppl, pop 1 XP scroll (should be enough for dekarm), pop 4$ worth of pk scrolls, all ok and i even have more XP + spot taken pleb. Sounds awesome!
  12. Optimal spending for VIP 4?

    Give him a week, he'll be back on the forums.
  13. Christmas Event

    Next event boss jews + top C, crank it up a notch or no queue = no VIP.
  14. How to Multibox ..

    Then why all this fuss here? More posts in this Topic than it's worth imo, good luck and may RNGesus bring you a full drop
  15. How to Multibox ..

    Think about it this way: people see you as a train all chars hitting mobs at the same time, they report you, you get banned, you explain to the support "blabla accualy iz Dolan keyburds", they're really like "meh, tldr" and reply "we stand by our decision". That's why i'd advise you against it, people got banned for x days for less, but it's your choice, but i don't understand why you're arguing with people instead of actually doing it though, i know i'm replying out of boredom while eating right now
