    So basically Im total newbie to Lineage World. Saw some gameplays from Lineage 2 and Classic.
    Defenitely prefer classic... but...
    Is there any way to try the game before spending 10 euro for the first month of gameplay?

    Yeah, but would be a nonsense to spend 10 euro for somenthing you might not really like and quit after 10 minutes.
    Especially. as this month I've spent 40 euro for games I didnt really like ;d

    It's went from 5k to just over 400 players in 6 months, - the shops and bots.. I'm guessing there is less than 200 players left on this server.

    It's a real shame to as the server could have been great.

    Even without MadPro online would be around 1k-1,5k now. This chronicle is broken by design. And somone would fill MadPro place, maybe not that dominant, but still there would be "evil clan" side.

    We weren`t saying madpro is guilty for this. If madpro didn`t play here there would be alot of clans like them taking their place. Innova is to blame for this. They knew allowing russian players here would end up killing the server and they ignored it. GG

    The game is unbalanced and broken by design. If you want to achieve something, build mage constant party with AOE in mind. Russians are well organized at building efficient cps and playing for longer hours and as result they took over the server.

    If you want to try without having to look for a cp, you will be forever a nonfactor, especially if don't even intend to pay for 2 accounts to have at least a boxed buffer for your main char to be able to solo more decently.

    Having 1-2 boxed buffers (a main buffer and a bard-sws/bd) is a mandatory here.

    Please if there was an iron fist from Innova against those kind of procedures they wouldn`t be a factor here. And the picture would be far different.
    Ban for acc sharing. Ban for RMT. Ban if the player is russian. Now do it like you do it with bots. And them madpro might still bypass it but they wouldn`t be able to do 24/7 parties and would be far behind EU players.

    Thanks for replies. I think I will pass. I always wanted to try some more like hardcore play and grind, but defenitely not on empty servers and doing like this:
    Maybe I will try normal Lineage 2? Tried it some time ago but had a lot of performance problems.

    Now you can wake up and see reality. There are like 2GM's and 1Admin. They work just 8h or less a day. They do not know best ways to find bots and even if know to ban them have to follow many checks/procedures consuming a lot of time. Server from beginning was infested by bots, those running PK chars were all 100% botted, I know as saw even on streams/TS confirmations. As server was left few weeks without GM hunters(holidays QQ). Even at nights you can bot easy... You should know alrdy why... To keep it clean, you need at least 3GM's online 24/7 watching players reports, market etc. But all this in your dreams or you will pay 50+ for sub xD

    Yes try, it's free lol. You should lvl up fast till 85(week?), but will see not many ppl if any at all xD Then new L2 GOD starts 85-105+

    What do you mean by "normal" L2? Pre-GoD L2 (Prelude - Gracia) or GoD+ L2?

    I don't know how it is now in terms of balance but when I left it was more or less balanced (when there were only the 8 original GoD classes). Having only to look for a single buffer for an entire party was the best thing done in GoD, before that you had 4-5 different support party septups which is insanity.

    But I don't like the way it went from a open world MMO to daily quest-daily instance based MMO this is the reason I left L2. Also thing got worse after the drop nerfs.
