hello, i'm very excited for this server, i have a suggestion for innova. i personally would recommend, that you make playing l2c, pay 2 play, i also purpose that you make creating an account cost money as well, say 15$ on top of a monthly fee. now i understand a lot of people who don't have a very large disposable income will find this an inconvenience, frankly if you can't afford to pay 15$ on a game, i'm kind wondering what your doing here in the first place. however there is a reason to the madness; 1 innova makes more money, which hopefully means better support for us and the servers stay up. 2 creating bots now has a significant start up cost, to make a full party that's 135$ + monthly fees. 3. banning bots, creates income for innova, because as long as there is a demand to buy adena or power leveling, there will be bots, however they will be banned, and they will start again and pay innova money. 4.servers will be cleaner, less cheating, prehaps you may see servers grow instead of decline, or even new servers open up. innova makes money, we get to keep playing. innova bans regularly, bot population will become minimal, because as the economy grows, bots will need to farm more to earn less, each time making that start up cost more and more of a risk of their investment turning a loss. unlike the disaster it is on na servers. where you can bot 1-85 in a few days, costs nothing to make accounts and there is no monthly fee. you have nothing to lose, but only profit to earn and the chances of getting banned are almost non existent. this way innova actually gains something from banning the accounts. they said they ban about 1000 accounts every other week or so? so that 15,000$ just from banning bots. keeps servers clean for us to enjoy, keeps rmt down, provides innova with extra cash hopefully to use to hire some extra gms to keep it that way, plus some extra cash for the company. it becomes like criminals paying you to arrest them . any who /discuss really good idea from airx- no initial purchase, however you must pay 3 to 6 months upfront when creating a character. since your going to pay the monthly fee anyways its not really costing you anything extra but still makes bot creating difficult, especially adena website spamming! i'd probably say 3 months rather than 6, because if i was starting a game that was new, i probably wouldn't want to pay for 6 months before i had even played the game.
