Question to ADMINISTRATORS - please review if you care about the game


Recommended Posts

Dear Lineage 2 Administration Team,

I am considering becoming an active player on the North American servers of Lineage 2 and am seeking clarity on your policies regarding the use of third-party software and bots. I have come to understand that some players are utilizing a tool known as AsiWin to bypass the restriction on running more than seven clients on a single PC. Additionally, I have observed instances in the Tower of Insolence (TOI) location where characters appear to be farming under full-party bot control. For example, when one or two characters are defeated, there seems to be an automatic resurrection and defense mechanism in place for the entire party, indicative of botting behavior.

As someone who is enthusiastic about joining a fair and competitive environment, I am curious about the measures you have in place to detect and penalize such activities. Could you please provide insight into how you identify and ban players who use third-party software or bots? Furthermore, what kind of evidence or proof is required from players like myself to report suspicious activities effectively? Understanding your approach to maintaining a fair gaming environment is crucial for me before I commit to playing Lineage 2.

Thank you for your time and assistance in this matter.

Sincerely,

Lineage2Player

I would be very surprised if the majority of parties in TOI are not using some kind of automation/bot. The damage done by higher level mobs is at such a ridiculous level there's no way for autohunt/macros to deal with it. I guess if you drop +10 grand on P2W you could do it but your buffers are going to be highly vulnerable.  Combine that with how slow leveling is in the high 80s into the 90s and you provide an incentive to use bots to manage the party so the buffers enter buff and leave.  Ncsoft has a terrible record of bot/script/radar control.

Big problem is that mob difficult jumps tremendously at +80 yet gear drop still sucks. Our Pay 2 win is vastly more expensive than other regions and we lack other features to help. So at this point I basically just run off and die at 80 because I cannot level in any of the areas that drop adena and isn't packed with bots/farmer alts. Leveling in the elemental areas till the end of time is not viable as I don't have an army of alts farming for me like a lot of people.  My hope is that I am able to build up enough adena at some point to be capable of leveling in those higher areas but until then I'm going to delevel and go back to the grind.
