Lineage 2 worth playing?

    If you want to try something different give the game a try. Its free to play so why not. Higher level people are going to want to get you to there level quick as possible so you can play with them. That's just how it is but if you want you can always look for a low level clan to join if you want to get the full experience. Only advice is to join a good active clan asap and keep in mind that Lineage 2 is a 10 year old game.

    Thanks Jokan. I did install it today, and the initial experience was baffling. At first I thought the inability to even whisper being nonexistent until level 20 couldn't be a real thing. Silly me. I honestly cannot believe somebody thought this would be a good idea...hey, let's gag potential new players so that they cannot interact with anybody in the game! Yes, way to encourage further gameplay and community! Mind=blown. Especially given that the game is unique in many ways, not the least of which is the control scheme. If I ever wanted to ask for help from other players in an MMO, it would be this one.

    Aside from that it seems like a rich game world, but the final straw was the control scheme. Had I known it was click-to-move, I wouldn't have bothered to install it. I've been strafing since DAoC, and that's just as old if not older than Lineage II. I suppose for some people, it's just what the doctor ordered, but not for me. No jumping, no strafing, and no option to reverse the Y axis on the mouse. Wow. This game does not want new players. It is firmly in the "love it or leave it" category, and if you don't like it, GTFO. I'm not one of those kids who feels the need to jump incessantly while waiting for the wind rider, but the natural feel of leaping over a low wall or hedge is a must, as is the strafing mechanic...not necessarily for kiting/combat, but just getting around the world. It's very conducive to sightseeing, for me. 

    Anyway, assuming I'm not missing something obvious, I'll just move on. I'm sure at this age they aren't going to implementing new control schemes, and most likely the game is designed around click-to-move.

    In 2014 the game was no different than it is now, except with a few more players.  The game started dying at a fairly accelerated pace during Interlude, and especially during the Gracia updates (when they added the attribute system).

    They priced a lot of legit players out of the game, and doomed them to the "99%."  Many of the legit players quit.  I still keep in touch with some players from L2, but none of them play because they don't see a point in playing a game that - these days - encourages players to eBay just to have what most consider "baseline gear."

    you should really try clasic club server. its the best thing that happened to Lineage 2 after the old glory days

    I can't be bothered with Private Servers.  I'm over grindy games.  I can't say I don't regret the time I've spend in this game, but I'm not bitter.

    I'm certainly not into reliving history ;-)

    L2 died a long time ago. Not worth anymore. Maybe some still goood low rate private servers are still fun.

    Still my favourite MMORPG in its hayday nothing beats the politics and the great times I had in this game. It is dead now, every now and then I try it and it just makes me depressed.

    I still could suggest you europe classic server. Population is steady, and new patch actually increased it. Seeing new people all the time. Its pay to play btw. I play there from the start, dont regret it. 
  • CarpenterFruitCarpenterFruit Member CommonPosts: 2
    Yeah, Lineage II is worth playing, just avoid NCWest servers. I think you're better off playing on Innova or Gamecoast, or even finding some kind of private server.

    Let me know when you have a server thats Chronicle 1 with 0 XP Boost and no dual boxing allowed. 
  • Spellforce33Spellforce33 Newbie CommonPosts: 2
    I don't think there is a server like that out there. However if you look to have some fun on mass pvp l2ovc is perfect for that.
