And still get "star ornaments" and "flower pots"
So let's see what happen :
We had 2 event and we enjoy it.
Events over and results are:
Some people use it for farm Baium and other raids other to do trains everyone is happy. Merry Xmas everyone.
But how that looks in eyes of new coming players (if there are any).:
If I had join in server before 3 days and getting faster to 50 lvl would be really happy. But after that hard play ...
While I rush for lvls what other do - RB with 4 ppl and +++ wep. - Would I have that chance - no ?
Event was fun for me but let's see what damage will cause to community.
Event is good for 1 year old server but at that moment was too big advantage.
Experience how Lineage II was meant to be played - difficult ... + 15 WEP ?!
My crystal ball is a bit blurry at that moment but I'm sure after 10 jaguary will be more clear. That I see atm is not good future for l2shrine. Hope I'm not right.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not another troll.
Haven't played l2 for 3 or more years and the concept of that project " Experience how Lineage II was meant to be played - difficult, without pay to win donate - only your skill matters. "
makes me to dl client and wait pattionly instalation and to double click l2.exe . I think concept is right and if u can keep server alive without donation that is great. If you can't - do it gentle with hats and other stuff.
Many servers and community itself destroyed way that l2 should be team game. There are always people who play it like is "Round game" - 3-4 weeks -> Siege -> Hero -> I win C YA! Next round next server. You can't keep them here.
For first time I meet @Emca and company but they got mine trust that there is no corruption here. If that project fail because such event or other circumstances I would like to follow them in next project.
Some thing that I think whould be said:
Please when there are cases like Krokran (or how his nick was) make it public in English - We can't follow the whole story. With cases like that and decision you take you build trust in community or loose it.
Unlimited boxes - So the guy with best hardware win ! Bring 9 clients, use 3 for farm and others to leech exp ? Really ? So it's up who have better hardware configuration - ?
Not to talk how it effect gameplay - no need of active support classes anymore. So no teaming with random guys - that was part of l2 fun.
But that is long discussion - community itself don't like to play like that anymore.
Unlimited shops was nice in first two weeks - New guy come and see how good economy is working.
Now everyone have 10 shops and Giran market place is graveyard of grey named dwarfs. (there are like 20 shouts WTS/WTB per day...)
And for last - Shop Scams at private shops are not illigal ? Come on ?!
It's ethical question. You put so much efforts to compile GE + GF + don't know what else to make that stable server. You waste your time and money and allow that ? Don't want to search correct sentence but the meaning was " Without to take action to stop doing bad is like to promote and help them. Yes you didn't do nothing bad but you didn't stop it too. "
I know that is not democracy and I'm not here spare hate and tolling. I'm here on my decision and if I don't like it door is open. Merry Xmass everyone and hope you see construct critics in my words. Thank you for working on l2shrine I'm sure it cost a lot more than we see.
