Discussion Would you play on this kind of server?


Recommended Posts

Hello. Recently i got hit by nostalgia and wanted to get back to Lineage 2 after a break of 2 years. I searched for Interlude, C4 or High Five server to play at (classic is way too grindy and full of bots) and to my surprise I could only find a couple of highly populated servers, all with fake online of course but even 500+ real online is okay. These servers were all Russian and exactly the same. For Interlude the standard is mid rate with craft for A-S, while for PVP is the classic 2 week setup with very easy enchant and farm where you just have to grind for 2x d. Might or W.M in augments to deal damage. 

 

I wanna change that. I am looking to open a server using Advext L2off pack for maximum stability, where people will enjoy themselves either playing solo or cp. My general idea is a stable long term server with donations balanced in a way it doesn't affect the casual player as much, but enough to keep the server alive. That's my goal. A server that will be supported even with 100 online people as long as they have fun, no wipes, nothing. I want the server to be the stample when talking about Interlude just like L2Elite has been so many years on C4. 

 

The general ideas I have on mind, taking full advantage of the best files around are these. 

 

High Rate Server : x70

Adena Rate : x45

 

Buff Slots : 22+2

 

Buffer without songs, dances and specials. 

 

Buff Duration: 1H Buffs, 19 Minute Specials. 3 Minute Cat. 

 

Shop with everything you need. Up to S grade but without S.A that you have to farm it. 

 

Enchant : 3-16/14/14

Chance : 66 Normal 76 Blessed 

 

SubClass : Quest with Farmable Items. 

Noblesse : Retail Like. 

 

These are just the main ideas. I wanna hear suggestions and what you think. Thanks.

I would certainly played something like this because it's clean and simple,it offers the game you know and you loved. My suggestions,if you'd like to consider some opinions,   make AA and Adenas very valuable, A/S grade on shop without SA and sealed, Lifestones and Bogs and such Misc usefull stuff make 'em very very very hard to obtain. Safe/Max +4, +8 35%  Keep Nob only retail way Give some bosses a meaning with some helpfull drops   PS: Don't expect many

You would also have to consider that 90% of the players of Interlude, don't really wanna play on higher chronicles, that's why they still stick with Interlude after so many years. It's a matter of taste. After God, Lineage is a whole different game. But what you are saying would be a dope project for someone to develop out of sheer curiosity or passion. 

Well x75 Rates mean you won't really have to grind that many mobs for XP anyway. Also, players will be able to do the Noblesse Quest Full Retail without any help so theres always that. 

'My opinion.'

 

its not about how you will build your server. its about the nowdays community style... All people are playing in a server that is populated to be sure about pvps, (in case of low rate they craft S), try oly and then searching for another server. 

 

also let me give you an example.

 

"Are you willing to play on a server named L2 Elite with rates x30? - Yeah"

"Are you willing to play on a server named L2 Jack (copy of l2 elite) with rates x30? - no..?".

 

"Success" is pain in the ass today. You have to pay a lot in advertise to build the server name and also you need about 4-5 successfully opening seasons in order to be known

Of course trying to set a proper server the most of the budget will be invested in advertisement. Which is the main expense of the server, hosting is cheap. However, I don't like "opening seasons". It's bad and it's a cash grab and just to attract few more players. I would rather work on expansions constantly adding new content when the end game gets boring. I totally get your point though.

not bad ideas i would played that kind of style of server for sure but now days players are kinda stupid for the reason they dont last more than 1/2 weeks max 1st epics 1st sieges 1st heroes after server remains emtpy what i wanna see is a server with L2Forever / L2Elite style to waste my time on farming and gear up slowly but those bots now days killing those good servers my opinion is if you wanna open something good and decent use ur own ideas do a great server advertise it well and people will come 99% of servers are corrupted no matter what they just corrupting clans and other solo players just giving bad reputation so others dont join them but since i know you what kind of person you are i believe you can bring a great server wish you good luck

Thanks. Players must always have something to do so they don't quit. I would not make Epics available for at least 2 weeks, and would only 1 castle available. I would also limit clans on 30 members and no alliances to avoid zerg and force more clans to be created. If you see the server dying, you stick with the server and find a way to provide a good expansion. A new raid boss, a new item, something to keep the players going.

My opinion is u should let people to be with B Grades at least 2,5 weeks so they see how hard is the farm so they like the server economy

No need to force them on B Grade. I Kinda find it pointless. They will be able to get A Grade fairly easy, and S grade a little bit harder. The tough part will be adding a S. A

My opinion is, no matter what you do, people won't appreciate it, won't even try the server if it's new / not known.

 

I guess it's kinda too late to build new server. Population dropped. So, from my pov, you will only waste your money, but yeah, you can give it a try =)

 

@Celestine learn finally to use dots and commas. You sound stupid.

I understand where you are coming from. That's exactly why I mentioned you should support the server even with few online to prove that if someone wants to play on something stable that it's not the classic craft x50 RU server they can join you. Did you open a server recently? You sound experienced firsthand.

I did. I tho I would get like, at least, 100-200, didn't happen. Yet that could be caused by few factors like features, 'bad' opening time as other, more known, servers, 'not enough' advert and list goes on..

 

I noticed that even old, known servers that opens, barely get that count which dropps to (almost) zero within a week / two max. When that happens, people see low online and leave one by one.

 

Don't trust those site online counters where players online is > than the total characters created. Seems legit :happyforever:

I think advertising is equally important to files if not even more nowadays. 5 years ago a Global Mod topic on MXC could help you immensely. You should have supported your project if you believed in it. I would like you to send me a message with your experience as an Admin and your main features, so I can understand somewhat better why it fell off.

u ask server owners if they like to play at your server xd their opinion xd

Others experiences might help. You know regarding features etc. I am mainly looking for players opinions but unfortunately it seems like only Russian forums are alive. 

 

I plan on launching the server after Easter. I am looking for any kind of assistance for tests in the upcoming month and also I need 1 fluent Brazilian speaker and 1 Russian speaker. 

 

I am also looking to create a huge advertisement team. If anyone is interested drop me a pm.
