I can imagine they're interested. It's a 7v7 PvP enviroment during workdays. Unless you're on high populated PvP servers you won't do 7v7 every single day, and so far the game only offers gameplay like this during 2 hours a week. Ceremony and Olympiad are for scriptwankers anyway.

The Korean players really seem to take to the Arena. Here is a detailed article in two parts:
http://lineage2.plaync.com/board/server ... sName=0480
http://lineage2.plaync.com/board/server ... sName=0480

About halfway down in the second article you will find information about the Dark Stone NPC which spawns at random in buildings, gives short-lived buffs to the team that hits it and apparently debuffs to the opposing team:

Hey Elmar, is there any sort of wiki for skills regarding Arena?

I was looking at fraps and i noticed theres a skill on Warrior which has the same icon of an unused skill that was in client since GOD (which matched with Tyrr warrior description), it's called Final cry.

This sounds like what is called in Korea "Arena Final Rage"/아레나 파이널 레이지:

Did it have this icon?

Or maybe it's "Arena War Cry"/아레나 워 크라이?

Check what the visiting Overseas developers said about "more group PvP options":

Q. What are some things that the dev team is working on to improve experiences for players in the future?

A. The team has been working on a lot of new features to make Lineage II even more fun. Some of the things we want to focus on are more group PvP options that include high scale benefits for the best servers. We believe that these are some of the most epic types of battles in Lineage II and give players some of the strongest memories of the game.

This probably means that the Arena will become a permanent feature in the future.


By the way, Conguero, our new forum Administrator, is either really stupid or has a very flexible attitude towards objective reality. "Taeklim" aka Nam Taek-rim aka 남택림 aka 南澤林 is not "Lead Designer" but "Global Development Lead Game Designer" aka Localization Manager. The Lead Designer for the regular version of Lineage 2, the proper "Lead Game Designer"/리드 게임 디자이너, is Gang Jeong-won aka 강정원:

don't think he would fully understand the difference and pretty sure certain things got lost in translation when the introductions were made

no offense to Conguero but he comes across as an intern to me aka fresh fish with not even close to Busters experience..

The developer visit was in April, so Conguero probably wasn't even there in person and just reprinted some half-understood text he was handed. So yes, fresh fish indeed :D

By the way, I just saw some interesting pictures on the main site that document the aging process of a developer. The second from the right here is Nam Taek-rim in Chronicle 5:

This is the same man at the time of the Ertheia update, when he was really Chief Developer:

And this is Nam Taek-rim at present (the guy on the left is Juji):

Since we are talking about physical attributs, I would say that Juji doesn't strike me as someone with a "bad" face and looks like a decent guy. But that may be because he is french :D
