Official Lineage 2 Classic Server Coming!

VIktory4Lineage2VIktory4Lineage2 Member UncommonPosts: 46

Lineage 2 known for it's hardcore PvP rule sets and massive PvP etc: Clan Wars and Castle Siege and fighting over open world raid bosses is returning back to it's core. NCsoft sold the rights to a company called Innova it's a EU company that has the right to officially launch a server, and it's already done one launch last year it released a classic server in RU and it's got more people playing it than the live core server. Innova opened a registration page to see if it would be acceptable to open an English version/EU one and within 5 days they have collected almost 8,000 unique registrations which is amazing.

 

I'm posting here to inform anyone that looking to play a old school pvp game that requires communication and actually playing an MMO where you actually have to make friends and group up in parts, join a clan start a war and take over the world.  

 

Here is a video of Innova first classic server released last year in RU, and this video is showing 3 clans AM/RS/RISE vs ROA the leading clan of 200 people fighting for the first raid boss kill. If you are interested in a community that cares about each other and creating rivals I would suggest you head on over to 

https://eu.4game.com/lineage2classic/ and see if it's what you're looking for and if it is sign up support the project.

 

 

NOTE: Innova is the official publisher for Lineage 2 in Europe, this is not a private server.

    Innova haven't released how much the business model would be, but if it's anything like RU, it's going to be 5€ - 10€. Which isn't even close to 30 bucks a month. You are correct though they will be making it pay-to-play which is actually a great thing.

    6 days down the road for the registration and they're already on half of the 15K registrations they want, with a bit over 2 weeks to go. Also worth to note is that the server will be subscription based (as said by OP) WITHOUT CASH SHOP!

    Which is amazing! I hope after registration they will be convinced that we are still here!

    I wonder if all MMO sites that are not telling anything about L2C project now that we need them, will start talking about it once we achieve the goal and server gets officially announced... Lineage 2 will always be Lineage 2, haters gonna hate
  • GitmixGitmix Member UncommonPosts: 603

    I'm surprised the staff here hasn't written an article on this phenomenon yet. It's actually quite a big thing in Korea and Russia, I hear the Classic servers are doing better than the normal ones, both in popularity and revenue.

    Me I'm just happy I get to play this classic gem once more on an official server filled with like minded fans :D

  • InnadrilInnadril Member UncommonPosts: 41
    Well they even deleted posts advertising Classic in their lobbies with the reason "it's against the game rules to promote unofficial servers or emulators". They warned me in a thread and banned me for 1 day in another... They didn't know that Innova existed and that they are official publisher for Lineage 2 in Europe. Yet they call themselves an MMO specialized site.

    Aventurine doing a petition to reopen DF1 aswell :D Seems people are craving oldschool MMOs again.

    Could this be a sign that the WoW cloning era is finally over and that we're going back to the roots ?

    I sure hope so. I have said before that something new and innovative is not what we need. We need to take a step back and see what made mmos special and go from there.

    Not exactly.

    I think this is a sign that the audience that wanted/liked old school games is still out there and still willing to play games that harken back to the older game play.

    They never went away there was just a huge influx of people that were more "turned on" to the (at the time) newer style of game play.

    In any case if an original Lineage II official server was to open I would be there on opening day.

    The only concern I have is if they decided to eventually add the other, newer content bringing them "up to date".

    Hi there, I replied both to the warning and to the ban, didn't receive any answer. It had to come the head Community Manager of Innova, CM Onyx, and send you a formal letter which is kind of a joke. The ban was just for 1 day but was unfair as the reason was wrong. An article speaking about this event would be great. The reboot of an 11 years old MMO is about to kill its current version.

    What are they going to do for updates? Is the game never going to get patched? I can't see people playing that for long. If it's going to get patched to the current version what's the point in starting over?

    I be there for a Lineage 1 server in a heartbeat.

    It's over 10k registered now. I don't think they will have a problem reaching their goal. I will definitely be there on day one! 

    Party like its 2003!

    Lineage 2 Classic is a reboot of Lineage 2 so it actually GETS UPDATES. Only difference is that they've learned a lot of "not-to-do" things along the way, so Classic is intended to not be fucked up like the current version was. They're getting rid of the carebear changes that casualized the game to the point of actual MMOs of nowadays. L2C is a full reset from the begining but learning of their many errors.

  • TorvalTorval Member LegendaryPosts: 19,934
    What do you mean by get their own updates? Where did NCSoft say they're going to develop completely separate and new patches and content updates for this release? All I've seen so far is they're releasing a vanilla server if they get enough interest.

    I told the ncsoft na community manager to do this with thousands of players in like 2005. But they could not pull their heads out of their ass. Finally 10 years later they actually doing it might be to late dough. Privet servers made millions because of ncsoft idiot management.

    People seem to be living in an illusion where the old L2 is somekinda perfect world, it's not, it's so insanely grindy and boring, there's a reason it has one of the most advanced bots around, give it a month after launch and the server will be almost empty, the game will be impossible for solo players, nearly impossible for random groups, a bit easier for organised clans, ok for no-life clans, and perfect for those who launch a bot.

     

    For those who say its doing great in korea - sorry i doubt it, probably 99% are bots, again sorry no numbers to back this up.

     

    For those who say its doing great in russia - no its not. It has 4 server and 3 of them are in heavy decline ever since launch:

    Eva - daily peak at 1k,

    Maphr - daily peak 500,

    Shillien - little over 1k,  

    and the main server Gran Kain - at a decent 3k+ daily.

    Hey Innadril (and this info is for everyone),

    We moderators really shouldn't be having a back and forth with people about moderation, that falls into Mike's domain. So ...

    Always write to Mike B. at: community@mmorpg.com

    This can be for moderation or for things like articles on a "reboot of an 11 year old game".

    When the moderator told you that there needed to be a "formal letter" then I imagine that could also be in the form of just an e-mail to Michael. I'm sure Michael can better explain what is needed. And if it does indeed need to be a letter then I am sure he can explain to you the "why".

     

    on Topic: I would love a reboot of Lineage 2!
