Please no bs.

Eg, I'm a returning player on ncwest i've got tons of money and i want to gear up. Where i can find jewelry boxes in the l2store, heine fishing baits, elemental shirts, agathion boxes, cloaks? You may say well the players are selling them (where are elemental shirt) for an outrageous price. Who gives me the adena since i'm a returning player?

Or are you trying to say to me that i need to convert 1k $ to 10 billions dropping in l2 store crap in the outrageously low prices the players are buying that crap ?

You're missing the point. They don't want to work either. Who wants to work is helding daily meeting on discord with the users.

When neutron/conguero held 1 single meeting on discord with evey and zuzu? lol

They don't care. No one will ever return in here. Who's in is in who leaves leaves who the fu ck cares ?

On the other side i'm a returning player on skelth no l2 store on april i can be lvl 78 with top gear like all the other users on the server no truffle with a mustang to race with.

Before someone posts something else can you please access to the purchase ncoins page and charge your credit innova page? Thank you.

The diffence in price is like the korean 000000 they put in the enchant/compound rate.

Last thing. The money is yours. Do what you want.

Sorry for the gripes but I was only trying to find a way to use again my 13 years old toon, well 12 years to be fair, but it seems there's a big no way.

To helv lol i bet hime/neutron/conguero/the technician who pushes the power button is the very same dude. And oh i discovered l2 since a friend of mine was admin in a private server back in 2004. He was used to ban ppl on a german server while he was in vacation in thailandia.

1+1= ?

1 Classics this the other game
    Are no classics here
I do not understand how you can compare classics (which was originally such and so was conceived) and our server complex is already working 14 years?
If you change NCsoft servers to a subscription NOW then this will score the last nail in the coffin's lid

2 It's very strange that if you play there, but spend so much time on this forum :)

Well those server were born as subscription based servers untill, like pleist said, they introduced the first real p2w stuff, to me the brooch event so only 5 years ago not 14.

Read more carefully what i wrote. Who wants to be a truffle's or peppinio's meat shield server 1. The others server 2.

I bet you logged in here in 2011 or later on. At low lvls in the good old times you could kill in the best scenario 2 mobs before you need to rest to recover hps.

The correct question should be why are you posting in here since you are playing in there?

Answer i spent 13 years in here and so much money in here that i don't want to count it and 10$ and 4 weeks in there.

Just trying to save the money and time i've invested in here but imho that will not gonna ever happen.

Hope that's enough. Have a nice day bro.

Last thing. The p2w stuff has meant that many good players or better 99% of the best players went to play on skelth.
I saw the last siege on freya and the last siege on chronos. Apart from that the MS should engage buffgirl so they can finally conquer chronos aden castle
it is really sad to see that the worst clan on skelth, made only by lvl 10 toons, has twice the players compared to max, nova and dh.

Eventually only ozzy, dudot and over know what i'm talking about.

To Truffle. I've used your nick only for convenience.
If I played on naia I would have said ozzy and if I played on freia I would have said happy. Have fun dude.

Introduce mid tier pvp, close the gap between players both in PVP and PVE! Get new item policy, change smtg you want, I do not care if it is enchant chance or pw2 promo prices, atm your system is pathetic and players do not like it! We all know you will not go away from the P2W model, but at least make it like that so people can pvp/pve.. don't let players spend 300 dollars and get +1 cloak lol!

Servers are dying, open your eyes already! People want to PVP AND PVE, let them play the game... LET THEM PLAY THE GAME. This is not a Casino, your enchant rates are terrible. FORUM is more active than the real game, cant you see that. 

You need to take action before it is too late!  Naia/Freya servers have average population of 1000 ppl and this is + many boxed supports and box shops, these are not healthy server numbers, your greed is not healthy for the players, you make them quit with all these Casino like promos.

Soon there will be more P2W items, armors of gods, new talismans, new bracelets.... You are going to make every single gear slot P2W and for a ridiculous price, because of the enchant chance or simply because packs are 14-15k Ncoins! You make the game worse!

Make changes or you will make more people quit, mark my words! The product you are selling is not good, last poll you did was terrible for you, almost all players had a bad/negative comment about you and you know this all relates to money! P2W items with crazy price and idiotic enchant chance, players lose items they have paid for with real money, because of Macro, ppl wait for ticket replies much more than 24 hours, gm's answers are templates, sometimes not even related to the topic of their problem! 

If you want help, do not be arrogant and ask for it,  I LOVE THE GAME SO MUCH, I will help you for free

YOU ARE SMART, BUT WHAT YOU ARE DOING IS NOT WISE!

In this game today there are 2 categories of players. 

1) Rich players 

2) Poor players

It used to be good and bad players and again not at 100%.

 

So the only type of players this game can attract, is the rich players category. Players that can afford a respectable (sometimes insane) amount of money to spend in order to get the feeling of competition. 

 

Poor players (or players that don't want to follow NC west's insanity) gonna quit. The reason? Pay to win events are implemented without mercy. The target group of this game, is the rich guys. 

The big pool of players, is the one which includes the quiters. If L2 try to balance the game somehow, lot of unpleasant players will come back. Without motive, the community of this game will be less and less.

any new players who hit 99 and go to seige will instantly quit after their first seige and maybe go play something more interesting. server has 3000 ish players but most are fishing afk selling afk macro and or the odd bot the rest sit in town waiting for their instances to reset. then you have the top players trashing each other in hero or wold chat if i was a new player i would not want to play this shit game.

Up!
I agree with the fact that you need to reduce prices in the L2 store.
And we must hurry to take action, while new players do not come and old players leave.
Hurry to open new servers. And think about the system p2w more FRIENDLY to the player-donator.

Please, stop repeating of servers are dying, people quitting, need p2w and innova servers.

Servers are live, just not great again. Every day have shouts ncoins WTS/WTB.
PVE and free players not quitting, they will be grinding till end. Wanting to see which new monsters can kill.
Innova is russian. You dont know what it mean?

I think Slou was pretty accurate when they said:

With such a system that exists today - with the p2w system, new players have a chance to catch up (equipment and lvl)  the players who are playing 10 years here

Under the system of subscription,  no chances for new players, therefore they will not come here

Therefore, we must continue to follow the same path - p2w

However, if the goal is to attract new players, then some new ideas are needed that will better satisfy both new players need for instance gratification as well as sell items from the NC store at outrageous prices.  So here are a few ideas for you NCSoft.

  1. Sell a coupon that will give any player (new or old) the absolute best gear in game for their toon type for 6 hours.  Another coupon could max out their skills for a 6 hours.  Coupon price?  Depends on greed of NCSoft,  $100, $200, $500, $1000, or more.    I am sure NCSoft has a good method for analyzing how much they can squeeze out of the players. 
  2. Sell a coupon that will give any player a special skill for 6 hours.  Skill would allow the player to be invincible to damage from other players and also provide the ability to one hit kill other players (that do not also have the skill up).  Skill duration is 10 minutes with  a 20 minute cooldown.  This coupon should cost even more.
  3. Sell a coupon that will give ability to kill other players without becoming a chaotic character or taking a pk count.  Duration one hour.  Again very expensive.
  4. How about a coupon only for use during siege times that could banish a player to a time out room for 20 minutes.  Yes very, very expensive.  Of course the banished player would be able to buy an equally expensive coupon for instant release for the time out room.

Any other lighthearted ideas out there on how to meet the goals of (1) get new players into the game in an exciting way (avoiding all the boring grinding//instances) and (2) line the pockets of NCSoft (or NCWest - whomever they are)?

Some of these ideas have already been implemented in Korea. This is 30 days R95 equipment that can be used at lvl 85, for 3000 Won aka 3 US dollars:
