P2W Event

Recommended Posts

CryDealer    1

Lads & Gents you can welcome another P2W event. This time bag with the main prizes contain:

- Frintezza's Necklace in total amount of 1
- Enchanced Orfer Earring in total amount of 5
- S grade weapon pack in total amount of 5

Other significant prizes are:

- Cloth Piece in total amount of 150
- Sealed Rune lvl 8 in total amount of 50
- Spell Book Chest in total amount of 100
- EAA in total amount of 150

What I don't know is if the amount of prizes are meant for whole duration of the event or the amount will restock after 24h or one week or something. But right now after the server got up after the maintenance we already have a draw for the frintezza's necklace. Enjoy :)

I forgot to tell you that if you want to participate in the drawing you need to buy lottery ticket that is obtained ONLY thru L2 STORE price is 80 Ncoins for 1 ticket and 3600 Ncoins for 50 tickets.
(atleast for I haven't found the npc that could give tickets for free or something)

Every single event will have a paywall behind the good items. What I don't understand is why people are even putting effort toward these posts!

Understand that every single event going forward will have a huge incentive to pay with real money. This is a F2P game, that is how they work.

 Not all F2P games work that way. It is the easiest way to squeeze cash out of your playerbase if you don't actually care about the players or the game's future beyond the next profit statement.

When we were promised an event was coming when the servers came back up I for one didn't expect this. I was naive enough to hope for some sort of interactive event that didn't require my wallet. You know something like the stuff we saw in the REAL classic or even in the last event. I understand they need to make money. There's just a way better way to go about it for all involved but unfortunately NcWest as a company is captives to the whims of NcSoft in Korea.

Lineage 2 is the last game of NcSoft I'll ever support unless the company itself starts making some serious changes. For now they've got me by the nostalgia with lineage 2. Yes I'll continue to put money into the game but that amount has been decreasing lately.

Oh wise one, show me a popular F2P MMORPG that doesn't have overbearing benefits for their paying players!

Yes, you were naive and ignorant enough to think any event L2 has had since the dawn of L2 events hasn't been P2W...

I only found 1 so far, called Warframe. Stay-to-win instead of pay-to-win, but it is far more cooperative than competitive so maybe it should not count. :)

Well I started in closed beta and the concept of a cash shop was far far off into the future back then. So I had many good years worth of events that had nothing to do with a cash shop.

Path of Exile provides an excellent experience as f2p.
Warframe is basically the pinnacle of how to do it right. They aren't always making perfect moves but they do respond quickly and fix mistakes.
Heroes of the storm didn't require any cash to get stuff done. I ended up paying for skins because I wanted to support the game's continued development..I did some DOTA 2 and while I didn't play much I didn't feel I had to spend cash to compete or to be superior.

I'm not into mobile games which tend to be oozing with F2P a^^hattery...

So you don't play the game crafting your gear, killing rb or playing with the market to the get stuff, you use your wallet to get stuff.

What is the difference between this official server and a illegal server made by a random russian guy ? xD

I played since C2, so I understand how NCsoft works. I also played Lineage 1 extensively. I know you like to mention that you've played this game for ages, you mention it in almost every post you make. But we're talking about F2P L2, not when it was a subscription based game. EVERY F2P MMORPG IS PAY TO WIN IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.

Also, thank you for proving my point. None of those games listed are MMORPGs.

I wasn't restricting my conversation to only the F2P era in the quote you responded to. For half the game's existence it didn't have a cash shop in it so excluding any conversation on that era when discussing "classic" lineage 2 is an odd demand.

MMORPG = Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game

Each of those games are massive multiplayer online experiences where you role play characters in different environments. At the very least Warframe counts as a MMORPG just like Guild wars 2 or eve online or any other number of games that are f2p without massive p2w mechanics.

Right, and now there is no subscription fee, and Lineage 2 is F2P. So it's not an "odd demand" to discuss F2P tactics within L2. Regardless of what you want to restrict your conversation to, the topic has been about F2P tactics since the beginning. 

POE is an isometric hack and slash RPG that just happens to be online.

Warframe is a 3rd person hero shooter looter

HOTS and DOTA are MOBAS...

GW2 was buy to play and "recently" went F2P. Only the base game is free, WHICH IS THERE TO ENTICE YOU TO PURCHASE THE OTHER EXPANSIONS. GW2 has several P2W items in their cash shop. You can even straight up buy gold with real money to deck out your character in whatever gear you want.

EVE online is subscription based. It has a VERY basic F2P system that does not allow you to get very far. EVE is probably the most pay to win that you can even get. You can buy skill point injectors to immediately learn skills and boost yourself WAY ahead of F2P or even subscribed players. I've played EVE off and on since its release, you can't possibly tell me that game doesn't cater to people who purchase PLEX and sell it for in game money.

None of your points hold any value. Lineage 2, just like all other F2P games, are built to entice you to spend cash. That is the only way they will keep the servers alive.

Difference is huge. When I drop money @ ncsoft the only certain things to get are items from L2Shop. Events are random with so small odds to get something valuable that is unbelieveble. When I drop money @ random russian guy I drop a small amount with no exceptations in return or I drop bigger amount and in return I get the desired item specified on the purchase list with 100% probability and no excuses.
