Game servers will be down for maintenance beginning Thursday, November 15, 2018 at 2pm PDT / 5pm EDT / 2200 GMT+1 for approximately 1 hours. With this maintenance: Address an issue w

You guys literally have had "unscheduled maintenance" at 2pm Thursday for the last three thursdays.  How about we call it "regularly scheduled maintenance" at this point?

That's not exactly it. Feedback is taken into consideration, but it not the word of the law. If there are valid concerns, we do our best to act on it. But keep in mind, we're not the sole decision mak

While I agree we should have resolve this issue once and for all a couple weeks back, we are here and we need to properly address the issue.

Thank you, the maintenance is a bit annoying. But I can finally spend an hour getting some shit done around the house :)

Glad you guys are trying, i'm sure your hands are a bit tied with the higher ups.

Also, please no more top Weapon events. You really screwed the market on all other D grade items.

Modern gaming took a huge turn years ago to stop punishing players with extreme mechanics that simply make the game NOT fun. Teleporters need to stay free, forever. This one thing alone can drive many players to quit because they're too expensive, and running everywhere takes too long.

Remember, Classic has drawn in many new casual players who will quickly turn to other MMOs that bring enjoyment instead of misery. Let people travel Aden and explore and have fun.

Ok, but right now, is punishing all players and the enonomy of the server. You know, not everyone have a CP or more than 3 friends to play with, a lot of ppl play only with 1 box. 100 Adena from a 41+ mob is a real punishment.

@Hime Any news regarding spoil and bots running rampant? (There are bots that we report for weeks now and no action is taken.)

We do ban bots and spammers daily, but if you're still seeing the ones you've reported, can you go ahead and open a ticket on them? Send me the ticket number what you do. Thanks!

The unscheduled maintenances are annoying.

How come you dare to say it is free to play, if this is 50 euro a month, almost thrice the amount you normally charge for the subscription?

You are right, it's supposed to be hardcore, not nearly unplayable :D

I will take an unscheduled maintenance every day if it means you guys are showing that you care about the server.  I know it's not you yourself, but the company.

Hardcore does not mean having to feel like it's a chore to play. 

L2 was always a chore, do quests for Antharas/Baium/Valakas etc., have a sorc for AQ, pvp for all of those, go to CH/Castle Sieges, lose xp for all of those, find time to recover xp and progress. But it was fun as fk.

@Hime

Why wouldn't you guys just look at adding a number of fun cosmetics to the shop instead of destroying your 'Classic' rates based on a VIP system? Cosmetics are by far the highest grossing revenue stream for any F2P on the market. Making 50% SP/XP runes $50 is pretty extreme for a 'monthly' fee to stay competitive.  This is a hardcore community you guys have here, and I realize you tried to market this server to that demographic.  Adding an RNG afk event which push your servers to the brink and added 12 hour queues to the non VIP players, RNG dungeon reward and disturbingly low rates, slap that entire community in the face. You are not rewarding the active player who would be willing to pay to play for months/years to come.  Unfortunately I'm willing to bet we've already lost over half of the players you appealed to at launch.  I honestly want the best for this server and I hope you guys take these root problems (rates) very seriously.

@Hime

Can you please make ingame surveys?

30 people complaining on the forums about adena/drop/spoil does NOT reffect the whole population!

If people want to finish the game in 1 month they have L2 Mobile or L2 Live.

If you make this game easy the hardcore players will leave, if you make it too hard the casuals will leave. 

You marketed this game as a hardcore experience and at its heart this is not a casual game.

So You just basicly saying that rates will be "just" a bit higher couse we are free to play.  GREAT

And what about ppls which pay for VIP4 ? it doesnt look free to play to me and we cant even gather adena for shots, not even saying about using gatekeepers.
