It has certainly been a while since we have had the chance to address the MXC community as a whole. That is because we have been very busy structuring the world and making sure that it lives up to the expectations of the players that have selected INERA to be their server. Our goal is to make this a long lasting project with multiple sides to fight for multiple objectives like the good old days on Bartz in the prime of this game. But it is only natural that players have less time to dedicate themselves to Lineage 2, and so we have made accommodations along the way to suit the play style of the general player whilst maintaining a strong competitive nature. We listen to what players have to say and make decisions based on various outlets of conversation.
I encourage everyone in MXC to review the features of the server. A lot of questions come up in our Discord about features, they are very clearly explained in two specific areas. Whenever a change is made, it is always documented in both of these areas listed below:
1) The Website: http://vanilla.playinera.com/features/
2) The Forum: https://forum.playinera.com/topic/3787-vanilla-4x-features/
There have been a number of changes made in August and September. This is normal, to balance discussions and maintain an equilibrium between the different types of players that exist, whether you are hardcore, casual, donator, or hater, there is always a place for you here. We do not judge nor do we cater to any specific side, we simply outline what is best for the majority of players, and also what is best for the INERA team to maintain its foundation and strong staff; after all, one of our greatest strengths is the dedication of the admins here at INERA, their service simply cannot be matched by any other server out there.
So overall, we want you to sit back and really think about why you should choose INERA. There are many servers out there especially in September, but ultimately we bring a passion to this game and a transparency between the GM and the players. You always know what is on our minds and we make it crystal clear to you in the forums if any changes are made and often the reasons why. So go out there and tell your friends that there is a server that is for the players that is not like any other, but goes beyond the standard of quality that you may expect. We have a very healthy relationship with the public. Try to recruit those that are skeptical because we want everyone to enjoy our Vanilla 4X server.
And rest assured, our online numbers look very good. The registrations are strong, perhaps the strongest from any other season we've had at INERA. There has been a lot of closed beta activity and a lot of requests to test the game. We will have a good server but we need your help to promote it further. Make sure to tell those that are on the fence that they should choose INERA and its community, for we are trying to bring the game back to its roots, where players can fight the good fight without any ill intentions.
So expected online count? We this question a lot. And truthfully we cannot really say at the moment - anyone that promises an expected online is generally making up some random numbers. But what we do know is that it will be a good online judging from the accounts created. We currently have 2500 master accounts, those are not duplicate accounts like other servers have, every players has 1 master account and several game accounts, and the number of master accounts are growing rapidly every single day! With 13 days away, I think our server is showing a lot of promise and certainly many players have chosen to play here but, if you're on the fence, we want you too!
Let’s make a community that stands strong and lasts long. Whether you’re Greek, Russian, Polish, American; it matters not, we will play together and see which clan reigns supreme. So give it the good fight and let us know if you have any questions, there will always be a GM to answer them.
13 Days Left.
2500 Master accounts registered + growing!
Make sure to review our features to prepare.
Work together to bring players to PlayINERA.
We launch on September 20 at 18:00 GMT+2.
