  • All entrance passes (Baylor, Crystal Caverns, Nightmare Kamaloka, Shilen’s Altar...etc) will be removed from the store on 3/4 due to low usage and recent instance changes.

@Hime @Juji

We are still waiting to know why you will delete usefull items like Daily Coins or Clan Box, and we still have items like Steel Door Coins or PK Scrolls, that are all USELESS.

@Juji @Hime What good is this when we're lagging so bad! I suppose your so-called hardware upgrades either didn't arrive or FAILED. Most likely the later of the two. SMDH

You removed those items as listed but what do we do with our REP points? You need to inform us regarding the use of it so that we know whether to keep the REP points or fully use it until REP points become useless in the future. If there is new updates in the use of REP points, the information should be given out to us together with the notification of the deletion.

Adena drop has been 70% chance since 2004. Stop questioning this or go back to the illegal servers you came from.

I started playing in Oct 2005. Adena drops have never been as horrible as they are now. Plus add to the fact there are NO other "real" drops other than those worthless crafting items. You can't sell anything to the public stores. They've taken any means we've ever had to make adena other than via the L2store and playing that gambling game or going the other route. Adding insult to insult they're going to take away daily coins and a lot of the rewards we could get. They give us no rhyme or reason for doing so which is a smack in the face. It's become more and more obvious that they don't give a flying fig about their client base and this community. They're digging their own grave.

200% drop rate ? go shop and buy the pack , is 2400NCoin. Only thing you do is beg , beg , beg ..... Lag , disc , I am shure there are issues , but not at the level some of you describe. You ask new server , you shoud buy aswell new PCs , change internet provider/upgrade. 

I did not experience lag and a single disconect for months.

My PC is 7 months old. Everything checks out fine with my ISP. I'm only one of god knows how many others that have been experiencing these issues for months. Go buy more NCcoins and kiss their butts. They love that.

Dear, you are the one that needs to be educated and has problems understanding what NCsoft's problems yet continue to support their incompetency. I'm sure your mother is very proud of you.

It's not difficult to understand and see what NCsoft's problems are:

  • failure to resolve the lag/latency/dc issues,
  • not giving us information prior to making changes,
  • no communication with their community/client base,
  • leading us on for months saying issues have been resolved when they haven't been, 
  • not providing us with proper compensation for loss of time, money, runes etc. due to the lag/latency/dc issues,
  • removing items for no reason and no explanation as to why; ie daily coins etc.,
  • bugs from updates that still remain unresolved,
  • taking away any fun ways of enjoying L2 other than the daily, boring grind (afk macro botting),
  • all events are now P2W and cater to those who are willing to spend a helluva lot of real money and max out their credit cards
  • blah blah blah blah blah... the list goes on and on and on

Do yourself a favor and take some time to go through all the various posts that have been made over not only the last few months but years.

Have a good day and welcome to L2.

P.S. Please feel free to add to this list. ;)

@Hime

Can you atlast explain why those daily coins and reward get removed?

We the players are farming months daily coins to be able to buy r99 blessing scrolls and other things from the reward list.

The 200% xp boost is also nice to xp characters in 105/110 castilla.

Will there be any replacement for those items by not using the l2store? 

We get our enjoyment from farming things in Lineage 2 but you the l2 staff give us the feeling there is nothing left to do and things get non to nearly impossible to obtain.

We once got a promise from Juji adena reward from mobs will be returned to normal when the botting get fixed. I am sure this never will be fixed and we long gave up on this promise.

All those things make you player base going empty and the long spenders are not spending any money in this game anymore.

Because farming is way to hard, no goals to reach, empty promises, no clear answer why things get removed, no pvp/sieges for those who don't earn 10.000 euro/month, no raid boss cause it's still farmed by 1 person and the list goes on and on.

This xp settings aren't helping us cause it's only for one week. We play for years we would like to keep old things or if you need replace the items for new things. Why remove something that's good and many player get joy from?

Since I knew you going to removed the Daily Coins, I cancelled my Prestige Pack subscription after 36months and I probably quit soon cause only things NCSoft care, it's $$$$$$$ and we are all tired about that.

All these lag issues for so long now really kind of makes me wonder what the Lineage II game servers consist of in the way of what type of hardware actually makes them up.  Can any GM post photos of the inside of the NCwest server rooms?  No? Probably not right?  It's probably a top-secret sort of topic that cannot be shown for fear the competition might get a glimpse of it right?  Or is it really that reason?  I'm more and more beginning to doubt that line of thinking.

Don't get me wrong; I honestly don't have any idea of what the inside of MMORPG computer room looks like or what it is supposed to look like; but I would like to see photos of it to satisfy my curiosity of how much equipment is being used and how old (or new) it all looks.

IMHO NC should be proud to show pics of it's shiny equipment as sort of a public-relations sort of promotion to promote it's games.

Go Ahead NCwest, do some photos, even boast a little.  Tell us your story and help us to understand things.  That's called good PR.  

Even more importantly with the way things are I seriously think we need your reassurance of things to come.

Tell us your story NCsoft.

Please avoid using the classic "Soon"(R) statement.  That horse has been beaten into the ground.

I’m assuming you’ll give us 2-4x cheaper priced Big Vitality packs to make the lagged server boosts even worth while @Hime @Juji? Exp and vit don’t do much without the dumb Vit maintenance/eruption pot rackets.
