    WTF is this? Who knows not me.... Seems to be a overhaul of Lineage 2, free to play?, new servers and old toons wiped? can I still pk everyone on the server in 99% of the server from lvl 1? is there still no gay ass instances for fags to hide in?

    Basicly we know very little about this project so time to start gathering info, Lineage 2 was my first mmos and it had some fucken awesome aspects, such as.

    • You can pk everyone even your guildmates in your party :D
    • If you fuck up in PvE and PvP you can drop that weapon that took you 6 months to make and some dude and pick it up and /lawl you forever.
    • NO Auction House, start window shopping as all the best gear in game is crafted,, no purples from noob instances here, gather all the mats and hope your craft works :p
    • No "factions" it's all Player vs Player, Guild vs Guild, Allaince of Guilds vs Allaince of Guilds pvp, egos, loot raid boss and pks so alter the balance of the server.
    • If you die you lose XP,,,, oh yeah get killed 5 times ina night fucking about and lose a weeks xp.
    • Enchanting was very hard if it failed,, your weapon/armour broke unrepairable, /lawl
    • Epic Seiging where when u died you lost xp,, man if we had that in Aion we could have de-leveled the Asmos back to the noobie zones... :p
    • DRAMA, no mmo has drama and hate like Lineage 2 NONE!
    So if you can't live without or with,

    • Safe PvE zones
    • PvE Instances
    • Purples Epics
    • Losing XP when you die
    • Losing your gear (very rare but fuck it hurts when u do)
    • Breaking your gear trying to enchant
    • Getting shit talked to, and griefed if they can.
    THEN LEAVE THIS PART OF THE FORUM NOW AND DO NOT RETURN LINEAGE 2 WAS FOR REAL MEN, oh and some butch women, seriously I am not kidding leave. OH and here is the KICKER, its also CLICK TO MOVE mehahaha awesome

    This update seems to change a whole lot more about L2 that you really have to just build up the whole list of features from scratch again, I'm not sure but the graphic update seems rather minor from what I saw on Youtube. I guess I'll have to look into it, maybe this will finally give me a reason to properly try it out.

    I can see this is probably more of a testing ground for them to try out their free 2 play for newer MMO's they may release, generally a F2P MMO receives no decent costumor support and proper patching. Apart from that you'd get swarmed by bots and all the kids without a creditcard will flock to it.

    Yeah L2 was full of bots due to the insane gind, max level in Aion Rift were 300 odd hours played, linage 2 was over 3000..... I played for 2 years and didn't even reach max level (67 of 75 max) I heard this is addressed in this version. but its all hear say I have yet to find any site with specifics yet need to go exploring...

    Are they planning to make any money with micro transactions or anything instead? This is what their key points were in 2010:

    Lineage II: Goddess of Destruction update key features:

    And according to some people a different combat system? wonder what they mean by that.

    I saw somewhere combos mentioned on a forum? maybe chain skills like Aion?

    Yeah it does look like they are trying to merge Aion even more with L2, stigma system is the same aswell right?

    there are instances now in L2 -> pailaka :p its a small thing, not the main focus of the game, but it's there! :) OFC that there are still epic lowbie Alt-fights at ant-queen and the other bosses... @Rakshata the one that been playing L2 lately, would be nice if he posted something here... but that fucker has been drowning in work (shit) lately :S

    instances kill everygame i play so far always, not the whole game ofc and not the community but for me. it basically means u have to go there to get loot. if u see rift -> t1 dungeon, t2 dungeons ... raid dungeon... WOAAAH WHAT ??

    its ok guys, the instance doesnt drop anything decent..., and you can only do once per day and it takes 5 minutes (the versions with boss alone) or 30 minutes (the long version)

    Progression is a good thing in MMO's Mizou, but I do agree that it can be implemented using mechanics other than the standard chain of progression through instances or the standard honour/rep/faction grinding and PvP renown/honour grinding.

    As for L2:GoD, I haven't read into this much at all so keep the "nubs guide" posts coming as I have that much work on that I am probably not going to research anything myself on this one. From what I have seen, it looks good, appears to be nothing new, but also it's PvP from level one, and PvP is what we do, so might be interesting.

    Yeah there nothgin new because its a 7 year old mmo? but what it was is somethign different to the WoW format of mmo, and sadly thats exactly what the mmo community badly needs.

    I doubt there is going to be any MMO now that REALLY breaks the tradition, even GW2 you have tanks, healers, bosses etc sure it might be done in a better (even unique) way, but its still the same template, a good sci-fi one would be interesting but its not looking to good on that front and it would still use the same sort of stuff, just with lasers rather than fireballs.

    So yeah, at the end of the day, if L2 was as good as KC says, why wouldn't you reinvent it? if they re-released DAoC with updated gfx, some new content etc i would probably go play it.

    Indeed seriously if they made a Lineage 3 as a follow to L2 and ignored the "insert anything to make it more like wow" and 100% locked down botting,, there are millions of players who would play it for years and love it.

    I got wet just thinking about it,, so did my neighbours cat.

    imo the only problem with l2 is the engine. New engine would mean decent mouse+keyboard controls, scalable massive pvp/e battles that dont make your framerate go to shit, etc... that would be so great :)

    What? look at that seige movie thats over 800 ppl pvping, on 0.5meg connections 6 years AGO! I am still amazed it even ran back then when u consider how much Aion lagged 300+ players, AoC 20+ yeas 20! players, Warhammer 150+ players on 2-100 meg connection on NASA super computers compared to what we had back then.

    you have to down ctrl + skills to pvp, and in seiges if you signed up to defend or attack decided if you took damage etc, so you couldn't accidently hurt ppl, if you do hit ppl your name goes purple and anyone hittong you goes purple and the shit hits the fan.. if you PK you go red then everyone can hit you without flagging purple, get killed when red good chance you drop gear, omfg fun times...
