Meh card event tends to be very boring and the server settings is missing free augments & real xp boost - 300% Vitality is kinda fake

Let's see what Black Friday will bring to redeem the first 2 points ;)

We will discuss with the Dev team on rolling out events like this in the future and taking lower level players into consideration next time. I will see if we can do something magical for next month :)

Amazing magical event!

So an event where only very few ppl get reward... so not that exciting for the community.

Fake server boost to increase the purchase of vp consumables, the catch is vp is already 200% but its real bonus is only 100% of base exp. so 300% means 200% ( this is worst than 50% server bonus because is does not stack).

Free teleport and no xp loss... OK fine.

Black friday... lets hope u guys have real discounts cause there are plenty new items, such as: Cloaks, Circlets, Agathion, Artefacts, New angels jewels, and last but not least our beloved (or not) Brooch jewels. Am i missing something?? Ohh dragon's shirt, damn!!!

Any plans on doing the same on live server as you did on classic which is fixing the drop rates? Or any contingency plan to bring more players into the live servers or at least entice old players to comeback?

This.

The F* Dragon Shirts again killed a part of your population, so it's high-time for a solution before our server Civilisation Collapses

Exactly 10 ppl I know quit during this promo, 8 of them because they do not want to deal with P2W anymore - P2W + Korean random enchanting chance 100% of the time is not fun..

2 of them quit because the game is boring, waiting for tank/heal for pt, cant find normal support, cant pay for more items! 

You can see how many more other players are selling their full gear, rly sad to see them going away, but this is the way we are going!

Once upon a time, L2 was a huge open world PVP game, now = VISA -vs- VISA, spend more so you shall win type of game

Exactly, people are tired with all this new stuff constantly being added and many people like to actually play the game to be able to obtain something, and by 'play' I mean kill monsters, do quests and such  :) (instead of gambling with Euros). The idea of the current gludin event might have been an attempt of NC Soft to address that, but they failed by excluding a huge percentage of the player population from it. And that's another thing, all new content (including the current event) is addressed to players who can afford very expensive gear, which with the current drop rates and quest rewards is not achievable for any new player if they do not want to spend a fortune on a 15 year old game.

Exactly - you're losing players like crazy, while all you care about are the top 5-10% (honestly, since you've probably lost another 10-20% of your player base with the last rediculously P2W events -- it's more than that now, since so many players are leaving)..  It's almost like the development team here is practicing being inane.

30-40 Billion Adena for the Artifact Event (seriously - like not chance to get hardly anything out of that, unless you're whale).  We heard there would be a fix in the future - but nothing.  And, as usually, NCSoft won't do anything, except to pander to the top 5% spenders.  Stupid.  STRIKE ONE.

Then $130 US dollars for the shirt, and 5 enchants - that have almost no chance of getting to +4 or +5 (I don't know anyone who got to +3 or better - unless they spent another 700,000,000 - 800,000,000 Adena, with a very low chance to get an enchant (and, unless you're going to spend more billions of Adena - no chance to get to +3 or +4 for the lowest level R85 shirts....and no reasonable to get the enchants without spending more hundreds of $USD - - another huge whale event (that would have an easy fix, if NCSoft cared at all about normal players).  STRIKE TWO.

Now the Golden Compass fiasco.  Finally, we're told that there's an event to get some good gear,and have some fun, that doesn't pander to the whales/top 5% spenders, who have spent $20,000 or more (we know of players spending well over $50,000 to be top players - truly pathetic).  For two weeks, the only players who could get any benefit from the game were the very top 2-3% of players who are DDs.  Absolutely inane, stupidly senseless (unless all you care about are the sad players spending $20,0000+ on a game, and you don't care at all about the other 90% of your player base).  Finally, Juji was able to get something - an extra week - now that some top players can actually finish (without spending $20k RMT on gear)...but only a week extra.  No way to get past +2 or +3, maybe - unless you're an uber whale who got to play the previous 2 weeks.  NCSoft pandering to their top 5-10% spenders again.   STRIKE THREE.

Honestly, it's amazing more players aren't quitting.  NCSoft simply doesn't give a rat's arse about the rest of us.  The game is going down the drain, and fast.  They just don't care about players, except the top 5%.  That is very clear.  If you're new to the game, you'll figure this out soon.  Leave before you waste any more money on L2.  NCSoft doesn't care about you or your clan, unless you're willing to spend $20,000 or more here.  Find something else to do, if you value your time or money at all.

It's not about shirts as such, for many people this promo is just a straw that seems to have broken the camel's back.

particulary when we all know our version of the Dragon shirts was tweaked as NC decided to remove the upgrade existing shirts to corresponding Dragon version trying to make those of us that spend hundreds of $$ some more and leaving them with another useless item in their warehouse

pretty shortshighted & stupid of NC as most players with such old shirt didn't bother with this event at all, just left them feeling disgusted, and if they had kept the upgrade option in at least then we had the choice.. pretty sure many would have gone for the upgrade to a +0 Dragon shirt and buy those packs to try to make their shirts +4/5 or even a higher version..

Anyways as NC decided not to include it in this Dragon shirt run we will never know as the damage is done now, maybe / hopefully they will realize their mistake and add the option in a future Dragon shirt run..

no experiance loss upon death... free teleports... very nice,thanks but a questions: "in what year are you living in?"developers even play the game anymore? yes, at beggining of GoD everyone could not wait for this stuff. noone had box iss yet and 20-30-50k adena was something,poeple had +/- same gear. also pay to win strategy was not blooming yet, so there was many people playing the game and pvp in teritories...(soa quest had chance to give apocalypse weapon)... but now you continue same... i dont wanna point the obvious way this events are added...  100%ressurection skills at iss+heal(every one in live L2 survers has box) and free teleports?  ultimate "p2w" strategy's anihilated 97% of casual pvp  in random teritories and casted out every normal smart human being of this game simply becouse needing 24/24h from person to play is...no comment... did you tried it for 5-10years to chek that it does to a person. also btw dont you know that 23124124123213213poeple love and play old lineage 2 versions becouse there is no stupid quests...there is no roadmap to say ... (today you will do that) , people have free will there, have to think and find stuff on their own. do you realize stupid instances/daily quests + purchase slowly but surely killing this insanely beautiful game Lineage2?
