Discussion NCSoft releases 'Bloody Classic'…

Recommended Posts

…on 2018-11-15 in order to kill all l2 private servers with one fell swoop.

 

If you are running a low, mid or high rate server based on any chronicle before GoD, seasonal (regular progression resets) or not, the doomsday clock for your server HAS STARTED COUNTING DOWN.

 

Features:

  • Concentrated hunting grounds (no more spending 97% of time running and 3% attacking mobs) - less NPCs in total so server can easily handle 10k+ online
  • NPC buffers in hunting grounds
  • Allied NPCs in hunting grounds (healing you, attacking mobs without XP penalty)
  • GM shop with literally everything
  • GM buffers in towns with 7h full buffs
  • One-click class change
  • Global teleporters in every town (to all other towns and to all hunting grounds, grouped by area)
  • No enchant value limits (yes, you can finally do that +200 Soul Bow on an official server)
  • F2P

 

In less than three days (of total online time), the server (Aden) has reached and exceeded the 7000 players online milestone - something that was never reached (and will never be, as their popularity is dwindling now) by recently released standard classic TI/Giran servers in NCWest.

 

Innova has already started porting Bloody Classic features to the international Seven Signs client (Korea is already on Fafurion/Secret of the Empire/Saviors) to facilitate a release ASAP.

 

So, what are you going to do now? This is an obvious direct attack on private servers, who by now have already been all reduced to 'play three months, then wipe' seasonal server model.

In Korean Bloody server (the LIVE Bloody one that opened earlier) dragon weapons are worthless trash, since there's already plenty of people with >=+100 R110 (there are global notifications of enchant levels now, so it is easy to tell). The P.Atk./M.Atk. and SS damage boost is so high on such weapons that Top Grade dragon weapons can't compete at all.

 

Plus, GM shop means you can buy anything with adena. So, in this Bloody Classic, you can buy brooches & jewels (incl. pre-leveled jewel boxes), pendants & varnish, bracelets (other than duty which remains for clan points), talismans & their fragments, incl. highest level talismans (e.g. T of Baium), etc. BY SPENDING ADENA (rather than NCoin).

It's not an attack to private servers, or at least that wasn't their main goal, BUT money.

They have several offices in the United States and they were in danger to no longer exist - employees were working overtime, management was pushy and so on, because the NCSoft West wasn't making enough money - this is one of the cases from Dallas, Texas.

Oh lord, can't wait to see how innova will destroy this concept this time. Maybe premium buffs? Super scrolls on l2store that give +10 to your weapon instead of +1? Super tarots? 24 karat la vie en rose diamonds exclusive from the l2store? The possibilities are endless.

Just an update that yesterday, 2018-11-20 they already added an extension server for Aden (free character and clan transfers every week, sieges held on primary server). At the moment of speaking this 'Aden' has 8.5k players online [in total] and it will most likely reach and exceed 10k during prime time in Korea.

 

Looks like a perfect way to buy another few years of hype for L2 PC.

naah attack to private servers?

guys new era comes for lineage 2 , Lineage 2 reborn again ;) 

No matter how hard some people try to deny it, this looks exactly like a typical private server: GM shop, Global teleports, NPC Buffers with super long buffs, etc.

Pretty much a knife between the ribs for the IL and HF servers.

 

And if we are talking about HF, you guys are all fucking hypocrites - when I was playing GF, everyone was like "psh, GE/Freya is what matters" then GF leak happened and when I was playing HF everyone was like "psh, HF is trash, GF is where everyone's at". This continued despite the Freya and later HF scripts leaked.

And now people are unironically making HF servers and other people are playing on them. GG, Bloody Classic will put your servers where they belong. In the trash.

This is quite interesting. So they are making like a PvP Classic Retail server

It will draw lot of people from private servers for sure

Its a shame its pay to win, but well, many private server players love that, so...
