Ougghh, i honestly find it SOOO hard to remain calm when i see comments like yours.
So you say custom makes L2 unbalanced right? Hhmmm so u think Retail L2 is balanced??? A game where a skill like Paralyze lasts minutes?!?!? where is the balance in that???? If after 102321030 years u still FAIL TO SEE that the mere reason why ppl even play retail-like is because of nostalgia (which blinds them) and has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO with balance then yeah, i think u should take a break and start observing.
Interlude retail was shit, it was mage and archer fest. Hi5 improved in some areas and took away from other.
A game based on Critical dmg and nothing else. A game where in a mass fight due to how cancel type skills would be working u would be left with your dick in your hand due to that retarded mechanic. A game where u needed 321032010 bots buffers to even play properly pvp. To even go outside in search of 1v1 encounters.
NOTHING is perfect and retail-l2 was some light years farm from balanced when it comes to classes/skills/pvp.
Good things about l2 is its OPEN World nature, the open pvp system, the mass sieges and boss events. But plz lets not talk about the PVP balance.
