I love this server and I hope our population will increase. But logically thinking - it is rather unlikely. Lineage 2 community think that new server is a solution to all problems. So lots of player just keep quitting and joining for years. Shrine is 8 months old which is quite a lot - major turn off for clans with some ambitions to rule.
Our hope is in casual players and CZ/SK ppl who consder this server as their home and will maintain population around 150-200 till the update comes. We need a lot of luck - if interloods close, an update comes with adverts and our endgame-nolifers stop being pricks(hehe just kidding it's impossible) then we may have a chance to lure former shrine players and new players. That's my opinion. I don't really know what to do, I like playing here
But that's just me - I play here with my main support class which cant even pvp well. So I started to enjoy pve (it's steady and soothing for my rl stress ) and supporting my friends. BTW: currently we run 3ppl-mini-cp and we are open to meet new ppl. If someone here wants to join us (or make an ally with us lol) mostly for chit-chat, some farm, rbs etc just leave me a pm here
I wanted to write some more about what I hate here - but it makes no sense, that's jsut minor issues. Some ppl are cool and nice and some are just assholes acting like they have no other life achievements other than l2. It is just L2 community like everywhere.
So, my conclusion is.... dunno. Let's hope it will be ok, advert server and enjoy the game, while GMs work for GE update.
Oh and one last thing: Emca, pls, next time adjust events so that it is less retail and more adequate for 8months old 5x community.
