Another shameless Pay-2-Gamble-2-Win version of the game?


Recommended Posts

Is this going to be just another shameless cash grab like Classic turned out to be?  If I remember correctly, @Jujimislead the community at the start of Classic that it would NOT be a P2W game(I understand this was not his fault and as an employee, he was responding with the info he had at the time).  But Classic quickly devolved into a grotesque and perverted cash grab dominated by a handful of No-Life whales, bot masters, and RMT pros.

For me, L2 will forever be the standard by which all MMO's are compared.  And I have no problem with pay to play, pay for convenience, or pay for boost.  But what I have zero interest in is another massive P2W scheme that requires thousands and even tens of thousands of dollars to stay relevant.  I still have friends that feel trapped on Classic servers because they cant walk away from the "investment" they made....it's almost like an opioid addiction.

I hope you guys can address some of these issues I am reading on these forums.  A big part of me is very excited for a chance to play a new version of the game I love, but I wont if the company has not learned from the past and intend to implement a better balance between corporate greed the quality of life for their gaming community.

It would appear that this is the core of the dev plans for the game.

Yes, Aden servers will be a p2w gambling casino. But that's not what really matters. The biggest difference is the cost involved. If costs are low, Aden servers will thrive despite p2w gambling. If costs are high, these servers won't even last a month.

Instead of a new server... WHY they dont solve the exp and adena issues that we ve in Chronos? The servers are quite boring and not worth putting a penny.

Agree with 90% of your sayings just about MMORPG part I don't agree there is basic MMORPG elements missing in this game since God knows when:

1) Quests-what mmorpg doesn't have quests (don't need to answer as we are here)

2) Story - This part missing after Goddess of Destruction.

3) Achievements -(let me rephrase: items, achievable in game loot mob drops etc..)  

 

97% NPC doesn't even have a purpose  since they are outdated, do anyone remember Seed Manor Traders in every Town. What's the purpose of them now??

Some of them NPC's give critical error once you try to talk to them.. @Juji will send you some screenshots which NPC's give critical errors..

Plus map is shirked to 14 locations...

90% of the Lineage 2 world is not in use as its still stuck in Scions of Destiny and Kamael (Gracia) patches which were 20 years ago.. (aight might be less but you get the point)

Elven Fortress, Giant Cave(inner cave), Devil Isle, Beast Farm, Wasteland, Forgotten Temple, Garden of Eva, Wall of Argos, Valley of the Saints, Pavel Ruins, Gracia Continent..

List can go on and on and on..  You get my point.
