    I don't think I need to elaborate on the question much more than that, but I will anyway...

    I took a long break, several years in fact, from Lineage before Classic came up. I must say I wasn't ready for the sheer amount of ****-sucking when I came back. Of course there was the occasional grieving here and there, but people were generally decent back then ... somewhat.
    But that's fine, it's part of the game, and I wouldn't play it if I didn't like it. More ***** equals more opportunities for me to get back at them.

    Well, except when I can't get back at them... I've spent a better part of the last year on various private servers and in all that time I simply couldn't figure a way to deal with them. Guess playing a bladedancer didn't exactly help, but still...

    So the question is:

    Is there something you can do about grieving? Anything besides:
    a) always having large party with vigilant healer and a couple of PvP classes
    and/or
    b) legging it at the first sight of a dwarf/orc mystic/human warrior/human knight, hoping he doesn't have WW?

    And speaking of b) is there anything at all you can do about an archer?

    Nothing can be done about being stunned, especially if there higher level then you, its just perma stun, with no way to defend yourself, just gotta take the death and possible item drops.
    Only options are to Run, Logg off, or try and fight back witch usually ends in your own death.


    The serious issue with these server files is that it strongly supports griefing gameplay, but unfortunately there are to many trolls around to get your point across to innova and if you ever try and say anything you will end up with trolls flaming your thread.

    Then the trolls scare away all the legit honest players, then the trolls have no fun trolling trolls then they also quit, leaving less populated server.

    lets fight back Griefers!

    1. Create incentives to fight griefers, or penalties for griefing someone (by system...needs Innova n Devs)
    2. Cooperate in a zone, shouting the griefers nickname in town and then set up some witchhunt parties to burn the griefers

    keep open your browser with your login info.
    Press play if you are in trouble.
    Survive till you kick yourself from the server.

    ^ This is like the best thing you can do :rolleyes:

    TBH fam just blacklist them and keep your eyes open to any Dwarf/Orc Mystic/Human Fighters around.

    Things like ice bolt won't be effective a bit later on so the number of classes that can effectively grief a player will go down(if you're not flagged ofc).

    Yeah, trouble is my freshly reinstalled 3,5GHz i5 with 8 Gigs of RAM and an SSD takes about 10 seconds to chew through Bloatguard(tm). By that time a nuker in devotion or tank with a train is long, long time dead...

    I for one am not going to exp for 6 - 12 month for 1 stun from some blockhead and drop my main wep. If main hand wep dropping would have been in the patch notes I would not have pre ordered. Add this problem with the amount of bots in game I now feel there should be a refund option..

    This is part of the game. Deal with it.

    You can always do the same, nothing stops you.

    If you don't like it, play somewhere/something else.

    I understand this is part of the game the way it should be, and I'm happy about it.

    Dropping items count might be little high, but it is what it is.

    Don't waste your potions on earlier levels, ice bolt WILL slow you.

    A penalty made for PvE being implemented into PvP by a selective debuff system isn't what I'd call "crying about".

    Either you make all debuffs work on unflagged targets, remove the debuff effects from attack skills on non-flagged targets(ice bolt for example) or you create a debuff resistence on white characters against debuffs from other players(a.k.a they flag and can use any debuff on the target but the effect check will only go off when they flag back or the harasser is red)

    But sure, if you want to keep saying that "Ahahahahahah! Hardcore game git rekt!" you're welcome to. Actually let's make this better, let's make it so you drop your items whenever you _DIE_ period. On clan wars? Drops. On PvP? Drops. When PKed? Drops. That would be amazing right? :rolleyes:

    Edit: Yes, I'm salty that I got slowed with an Ice Bolt. :Cry:

    Eventually there will be augumenting in the game right? There should be future expansions that will stop griefing, we just need to survive until then.

    Only it hasn't been like this for the last 10 years. Original L2 never ever had this kind of drop rate of equipped gear while being white.

    Yeah, let's make L2 exactly what it's been since Interlude.
    Because that has worked out so well.
