I realize this is a bit far fetched and possibly crosses the line of crazy but I love this game too much to not give this post a try. First off all I would like everyone to know that the game may not be perfect; * QHP Pots * BSOE * PK Scrolls * Item drop when dying in pve. List can be long, read DVP's post about what stuff shouldve never made it to the EU Classic server.. Lets not go into why it failed, lets try to look at how it can be successful. There was an event when we got +50% exp and it was even restricted to a certain group of players, everyone below level 70! -- And even within a time zone, 19:00-02:00! If innova can make XP adjustmens to the game im sure they could setup a schema that would benefit the avarage european. My idea is to use this for a good cause; - Restrict xp income for everyone, either by time of day or by total exp earned during 24 hours. But then, naturally other problems would occur -- such as players EXPing during night would spend their time ganking players during day when they themselves can't exp - come at me bro, i need to make my pvp movies. Well, that is a problem that is FAR less relevant than the one that is happening right now. Looking at it from a different Point of View; players that dont get xp on one char could spend their time lvling up an alternative character or even spend time farming. Either way this invites everyone to the game without missing out on the yolo players. This would make even me level up a spoiler, for fun! - By "classic" in "L2 classic" everyone thought it would be as it is right now but without this brutal XP curve, even I who absolutely love this game, feel that the XP Curve is just too god damn brutal! Change the XP standard to +200% of what it is now, the result would be x1 rates insted of x0.25 or w/e its concidered to be right now. Don't touch the spoil/drops - its perfect as it is. You could tweak this even more, such as xp lowers after 8 hours of gameplay; players get 25% LESS exp after a certain time instead of just 0%, this is to invite people to take a break. Im sure even the most hardcore player, living in a basement, would concider getting a job at that point. Simply put; Reviving the project with different set of parameters. With the the community as input, could make L2 flourish and you would have another wave of income! NCSoft failed due to bots. Innova learned from their mistake and is doing an amazing job banning botters but there's a different problem that Innova hasnt taken into concideration. People in basemens. I just laid out a business plan for you that you can build upon, you can thank me, and everyone who loves this game as much as i do, later. Please feel free to continue this thread with constructive feedback/input. TL;DR Reset server with settings that would allow the avg. joe to enjoy this game too.
