I am very happy to read this!

Let the good ones stay on the server.

We had some disconnections across multiple titles that we are investigating with Amazon (AWS).

And what are these anti bot procedures? Ncwest hasn't done anything to stop scripting, why start now ? Is it because essence servers are opening?

I consider it important to fix the server, even if it took a while, but I think it's valid.

 

We need quests/pets

Dwarves being valued again.

But I'm already very happy to know that some things are going to get better, we hope so.

AMEN, brother you have nailed it, i hope developer team put their efforts in some of this topics you have suggested.

Dwarves are almost useless, can't make SS/BSPS, recipes grade B or A are not able to obtain on levels it should be (52), because monsters were they can be obtainded are lvl 70+, there are really few things were dwarves can make some money, so people on server have to buy adena for money on external supliers.

It's not my intention to tell the developer team how to do their job, but i really hope, if you want to end with bots, first got to kick them off economicaly (that mean stop let them sell adena for money).

It's just an opinion so please take it with discretion.

PD: my first lenguaje is not English, so please forgive me if my sintax is not right.

They have to do something because they are losing so many legit players.  We cannot even play the game properly anymore, because 90% of the rooms in every Catacomb and Necropolis are infested with Kamael Archer BOTS!  I won't even mention the infestations in all the lower level areas that many of the intermediate quests are tied to!  It's nothing but Elf Summoners and their ponies!  The game has gotten really dumb and L2 has become the most plagued RMT game on the market.  ENFORCING the restrictions on 3rd party software will make the game fair, and will attract more REAL players, and deter adena farming sellers from destroying the game!  

Honestly if the programmers of L2 were smart enough, they should implement automatic pickup so these farm bots would be eventually overweight and motionless!  It only takes 1 minute to log in and identify ALL the BOTS everywhere!  They need to employ GM's who actually log into the game and monitor players' activities daily.  I've killed many BOTS only to have them come back immediately, because they were scripted to do so!  I see BOTS on a daily basis committing suicide to de-level themselves so they can continue to farm at their assigned areas!  FINALLY, something is being done about it!  Many players have been waiting for this day that Lineage 2 is for players and not farmers!

Same here folk, past saturday i killed 2 PJ in abandoned camp twice and, they respawn and back to their spots without even notice that my PJ with RED name over it, were just at their sides...

I tried to denounce them, but couldn't find were to contact support to do it... 

So, i think this is really were the develop team has to put their efforts, obviously to prevent third party software could help, but i think is more important to ban the bots when they are found "infraganti".

I think this explains my issues and why I see all the loot laying around. It has no value, cannot be sold in any town store. All the ponies or unicorns with the mage popping in killing everything is extremely bad and make me look elsewhere to play.

Sure hope you can fix these things soon.

 

Thanks

I'm sure that with these implementations, antbots, + quests, server classic will excel and things will improve, I'm sure. As well as rescuing old players, who like the game more and who did not accept as many errors that existed on the server.

Long live Classic - To real players!

Ok, there's no more bots, no third part software and we still have random disconnects... Really nice , new server and no problem solved with the old server!

The new normal is getting stuck on the NC blue screen and the game crashing. I'm not the only one with this problem... it seems like every time you open the game it's the same when you open the transformations. It's a gamble to know if it's going to be a error in the game or not.

Some kind of feedback would be nice. None of the possible solutions suggested by GMs seems to be working. Players from the live server have the same issue. My guess is that same will apply to the new Essence server. So, they have to hurry...

If I log in and spend 30 min logged in, and open transformation, it gives an error. close the game

I can only open transformation before 30 minutes logged in.

I would like to know which anti-bot system they are using because I see that they do not work for them, if they go to 1-2-3-4 they will be able to see the number of people using the Adremaline Bot system, it will be that their anti-bot system is so Absolutely unable to detect them? Characters like Littleliz, Leoz, Knucklehead, MrAshakai, Bawzer, Senzafine, iMiiau, Blazzin and several more are on full Bot mode, please put letters on the matter

Wow, I've never seen such a complex update on Server.  :)
First time I see an update that causes so much crying ingame, there are people warning that they will be giving PK 24h to everyone, because they hurt to realize that they can not log their Bots.

To get even better, I recommend that the next update you look at PK, because they should be punished for real, no doubt only humans are playing. The vast majority of large server bots are people who own armies of bots. It now lacks karma punishment and truly harm bots including their pks.

developer congratulations for the initiative to change the face of the game it is great that now the boot monopoly is being destroyed if possible in the next update put to pk drop items as it used to be great so it would end the spree of some players who think they own the server and they are angry that they will no longer make money selling items for real money and will not even log in 150 boxes

Good update, the game need real players not people logging 100+ boxs Inflating the value adena.

Now back good events (talismã baium) and review the classes dwarves and tanks...

Eager to read the new pac, hoping to continue the implementation against the bots, as the people managed to log in again, and hoping they get a correct treatment for the PKs.

Even more so the bot owners were disgusted with the update and are killing everyone on the server.

I still believe that at some point we will have players on the server only. No bots and no Bot owners in the game.

Devs! Congratulations! Great attitude in curbing bots.

Some friends were excited to return to Classic.

But it needs a refining, as there are already some farmers in adena who circumvented the anti-bot system and are logging several boxes with adrenaline softawarr already!

You also need to change the PK Character policy and go back to dropping items and increasing punishments! I say this because the big adena farmers are killing everyone while the farm and up parties are retaliation and boycott the changes.
