waiting queue in lineage 2 ?


Recommended Posts

Hi people,

well as say my title i am very surprise about the situation.

Lineage 2 have been release in 2004, we are in 2018 and NCsoft claim that there is a queue to login this 14 years old game because of 6.4k players?

is that a joke?  some illegal server have launch with 10k+ players without lags. How a company like NCsoft can't handle what illegal server could handle for free ?

Its the first time since c2 that i see a queue to log in this game...do you want us to all buy vip account maybe ? i have been waiting for 30 minutes for 10 rank in a 160 queue to log in FIX IT!

The illegal servers just give fake online numbers, so the nubs that play the think there are a lot of players online. This has been a fact on many "big" illegal servers and especially the Russian ones.

The L2 servers run on Windows and MSSQL, which is one of the factors for the instability that plagues them when they reach over 5.5 simultaneous connections. Also the server code is old and it's netcode is rather outdated, so yea, they are pushing what's possible to the very limit here.

Or they simply want easy money...Why make VIP if the game is free..thats where queue comes..keeping queue is easy money for them

I guess they want to get as much money they can before the company shuts down for good

Before classic Ncsoft incomes must be close to zero compare to what they get now

so to sum up

QUEUE-->VIP--->Easy money

 

They will probably suspend me again but i trully dont care

It's always a conspiracy when someone does not understand the technical side of it all, but no matter what you tell people like this they will continue to think it is deliberately designed this way.

Lol please point to some proof where there are illegal servers with 10k plus people in them. O.o Because I dont believe you for even one moment. Dont wait to wait in queues or stay logged in? Join the new server, Jesus Christ its an old video game.

I see Gludio server light all the time and in Aden i never had to wait.
Everyone wants to get his ass in Giran for some reason, but in classic the leveling zones are very limited and if NCSOFt open and handle 6000 slots in one server than players will be more than mobs. The sh1t will be too overcrowded to play and than you will cry that too little leveling zones are made.

the first bulb who were created lasted 15years but today they never last this long. only 1000 hours ah?

its dangerous when some scientist try to hide cupidity. my answer is server proxy

What a sad world where ingenior are paid to limit the creation for maximise profits.

It's very simple, they use "proxy" connection. It will be very a overcrowded server with that solution, but at least you can play something(PVP for farmzone)... instead of waiting for fake queues.

This is correct.

TI and Giran are already overcrowded, they have been for weeks it's why they(NCWest) keep the server cap at 6500 and don't increase it anymore, they should have never increased it from 6000 to 6500 either, that was a mistake.

It ain't some big bleeping conspiracy to sell more VIP.

The materials used to make the filaments of the old bulbs are quite different, energy heavy, hard to produce and least but not last, they last longer only in certain conditions (eg. you switch the bulb on/off as rarely as possible).In our lab we still got 3 bulbs from 1914 and they ALL 3 are working, although this doesn't mean they are better than the modern ones.

Also "proxying" the connection to a server which gets db issues and crashes when there are 5-6k connections to it will solve nothing.Some things are easier said than done.

Most of people want more servers, for a specific timezone... but of course that will ruins VIP income. It's by design the way they build the server. I wanted to buy vip to get access, but they also have the same problem.

It's not about the fact that ncsoft makes money, nobody it's against that. I wish them a lot of money if that's the case. The main problem is the way they do it. To brake the game & add a queue by design to force people to pay vip...think about this. Also many Vip players are are still waiting for queues, what are we talking here? :)

NCsoft doesn't make money with the queue. NCsoft loses money with the queue. The separation of queues into a VIP queue and a non-VIP queue lets NCsoft lose less money.

My VIP account flies through the queue. (Compared to my non-VIP account)

Our servers at work handle 11 million unique visitors a month and we are a web facing MS SQL system with over a billion unique urls.  We're not even using the highest level version of it and its from like 2014 or so.

Has nothing to do with that.  It's the code itself as you said.
