  1. Now what?

    Demonic, look at what was said in the post about the update. They are saying this is it, there is nothing else you can do. Well there are a few things, many others have mentioned asking for your money back and you can do that. But the best thing to do is move on to a different game. They say "this is a free to play model and it matches the other free to play models as far as adena drop rates."'ish... not an exact quote, but they love saying that to us. However no one ever seems to focus on the fact that chronos has free teleports for everyone of every level. Classic is nice, but quality of life needs to be assured. 14 years ago many players were teenagers or in the early 20's. That's not the case now we are old, our time is not as free as it once was. There is NO reason for us to have to walk for five/ten minutes then soe or /unstuck to get to a town. Heck even the run speeds should be faster than they are just because that would make for a better experience. People love to pop into these types of threads and say "this is how classic is, stop playing if you don't like it, it used to be much harder " ect ect. Well the problem is we aren't getting what we signed on for, we were lead to believe the adena rates would increase, we are being told free to play servers have GK fees... they do not. Classic did, but again quality of life my friends. It is really time to sit down and ask yourself do I really want to play this game anymore? The answer should be no considering how things have unfolded, but to each their own. GO play on chronos if you don't already have max level characters there, get to 41 and you will see no GK fees.... free to play model.... Just saying a lie is a lie. This is my last post on this subject for a while and probably my last post concerning lineage at all. Value your time, don't fight a battle that has already ended.
  2. Now what?

    Lightrider we do not need to write korea... it is clear they are talking to them, but nothing will change we have to walk away.
  3. Now what?

    They can't even justify anything properly. Look at the gate keeper fees, then go to Chronos also a free server, but it is the current version of Lineage... still the teleport fees don't exist. and the adena rates are better. I really think they are keeping the lower rates and the draconian gatekeeper fees as a means to recoup what they have spent on getting the servers up and running. It forces you to be out of adena in no time and then you have to hit up the L2 shop for shots just to play the game. I started back in the day and this is NOT the classic experience that was promised and everyone is aware of that. I know we can run town to town and /location then soe at the right spot to make it cheaper. But, the honest truth is that everyone that's here for classic is an adult, most of us do not want to spend 30 minutes getting to a spot to grind, find out that it is full of bots or a clan that will crowd you out then run around another 30 minutes and grind. An hour isn't much, but when I can jump on world of warcraft and spend that hour actually playing the game instead of running needlessly to a Soe spot...why would I play this? This game was great when it came out, it is still okay on the older servers, but this "classic" is a joke, waste of time and money. I'm not on here to make an idle threat to leave the game because of the adena rates, or the gatekeeper fees. But, we as a group of fans need to pull our money back as paradiz said and vote with the wallet. IF we are really just matching other versions of free to play... why are there no gatekeeper fees on chronos, which is free to play? I haven't tested, but I'm sure the adena rates are better as well. We want the classic feel with some quality of life to it. I want my 2 hours of game play to be 2 hours of game play not an hour of running, 20 minutes of trying to get a good spot, 20 minutes of trying to beat bots to the mobs, and 20 minutes of game play that is really ineffective because I still can't really afford the shots so it is going to be slow. NC this is not what we all signed on for.
  4. Update on Adena and Drop Rates

    I know this probably isn't being seen by the people that need to see it ... maybe not by anyone at this point. But the adena drop rates being crap at high levels sucks, but they want us to buy shots, boosts, ect from the store because that's how they make money. That is fine and mostly how it has to be, playing the market/crafting/careful spending of adena are all part of the game. But, there is something that I would like to point out and I'm sure other people can do a much better job at this than I. So here goes they say this matches other free to play servers I assume they also mean Chronos, which I have characters level 50 and up, but there are NO teleport fees... I have no idea how to post a screen shot or I would. So here's the thing other people could go to the free to play servers like chronos and kill a level 50'ish mob to see the adena drop rate then post a shot from one of our little classic servers.
