As much as I love this game (been playing since prelude) I can't really see it growing any more. Regardless of the amazing content this game has and it's absolutely perfect PvP, what else can they really add? After turning your avatar into a bird, and an acid-induced island with a semi-holiday/Alice in wonderland theme, what the hell else can you do?
I'd like to discuss the possible future of Lineage, and exactly what can be done to fix this games slowly declining population. I acknowledge the fact that my posts here will not chance the state of the game, this is just to discuss, so please don't give me a hard time for 'whining'. Does anyone else find it strange that the second most successful mmo company can't even release a magazine ad for this game? I've seen one's for Aion, but what is the point of not advertising all of your games.. maybe I'm just missing something, but in my opinion a marketing strategy for Lineage would benefit it now more than ever. Considering that the amount of mmo players has increased a substantial amount since lineage 2's release (Thanks to WoW), keeping this game under the radar will only kill it.
I at least had hope when NCSoft began selling it's games on steam, only to see L2's blunt 55 metacritic rating. Jesus Christ, I couldn't think of a way to bat players away faster than advertise a game that boasts an E average by critics.
Things they can add-
Class changes? More Vitality changes? Expand Gracia?
Things they should add-
Content for players that aren't 70+, a better tutorial (I believe one of the biggest downfalls is that you can't find a damn person anymore until the 40's. What is a new player going to think if no one had told him this?), rewards for PvP (anything besides clan warfare is borderline non-existent), shops that sell common gear at all levels
I'd like to hear some other suggestions and opinions about this whole matter.
