Lineage 2 Classic

Postby iMist » Wed May 21, 2014 8:17 am

It is officially confirmed that dev.team have plans to launch separate version of Lineage 2:
Lineage 2 Classic
http://lineage2.plaync.com/event/sa/140 ... ssic/index
It will be launched 28.05.2014 as server with classical chronicle.
No details what chronicle will be available.
And it is possible that it is a big event.
Seems they decide to delay next update after Ertheia.

You will find the details about the Classic Server here:
http://www.inven.co.kr/webzine/news/?ne ... e=lineage2

It will be a sort of time-lapse history of Lineage 2, starting on May 28 with the Chaotic Chronicles, max. lvl 75, max. item B-Grade, then in the 4th quarter 2014 max. level will be raised to 80 and A-Grade introduced, and in the 1st quarter 2015 the max. level will be raised to 85, S-Grade will be introduced and the Kamael added (this is not yet finalized).

So it's not really one of the old Chronicles but a generic "Classic Chronicle" :)

There is a Classic 4.0 planned for the 3rd quarter 2015, but no details have been revealed yet. I guess it depends on the reactions of the players. If there is a demand for the Gracia Seeds, this would be the time to introduce them. Otherwise they might really stop with the Kamael, maybe only expand to full Hellbound :)

And Mist just pointed me to this article:
http://lineage2.plaync.com/board/notice ... eId=579181

On June 11 there will be a major server merge in Korea:
Bartz + Pacer (an already merged server) = Bartz
Erica + Gustin + Teon = Sieghardt
Franz + Airin + Aria = Kain

So we have 8 servers merged into 3, i.e. minus 5, plus a Classic Server, makes a net result of minus 4 servers in Korea :D

if they do that, what will be the revenue from a server without update? i can't imagine a l2store in those chronicles and even less with p2w items, unless they make it p2p

At the start next Wednesday the Classic Server will be free to play, although it might not remain like this :)

The videos you saw are most probably from Lionel, a very active and positively overcrowded server. But that's the only active server out of 14. Check the number of participants in the Olympiad:
http://lineage2.plaync.com/gameinfo/oly ... serverId=9
Teon, Aria etc. are terminally dead.

By the way, Namgung Gon stressed at the opening ceremony that this is not a rollback but new gaming trends will be incorporated. Like for example the Classic Server will have a World Chatting feature, probably something like the Bullhorn we have in China (and which you get from the L2store :lol: ):
