Lineage2 goes F2P - New Server Shilien launched

Post by gold on Thu Dec 01, 2011 5:21 pm

Oh really they opened a new server together with going F2P:


The Shilen server opens on November 30, 2011, with the launch of Goddess of Destruction. Shilen is a brand new untouched server that is the optimal place for new players to start their experience of Lineage II. The Shilen server has the following characteristics and restrictions:

  • The Shilen server is for new characters only. Server transfers to Shilen are not available.
  • Server timezone is CST (Dallas, Texas, USA). This is the same server timezone as the Chronos server.
  • Character slots are limited to two per account until a later date.
  • The first Territory War and Castle Siege dates will be announced at a later date.
  • Olympiad will begin on December 1, 2011. The first Heroes on Shilen will be in January 2012.
  • Conquerable Clan Halls will be available beginning December 1, 2011.

Seems the F2P model is solely based on reducing grind for money. There seem to be no actual restrictions on a non-paying account. I think this is a decent choice of NC actually.

Truly Free™ breaks the shackles of limited gameplay and invites you to enjoy the full game world as it was meant to be experienced. Lineage® II: Goddess of Destruction™ will provide you with all the tools you need to propel yourself to the heights of power and beyond. This is the best value in MMOs today!
How is this possible?
NCsoft provides you with three essential features:

  • No Account Restrictions: All players can now go from a level 1 neophyte to a level 99 deity with no restrictions on where they may go or what they may do in-game. Everyone is equal in the transformed world of Lineage II: Goddess of Destruction!

  • Path to Awakening: As you journey to glory you will be guided along a clear path of attainable goals and given rewards for achieving those goals. This web guide will be your constant companion as you rise through the ranks.

  • Exploration Packages: For those who want to reach their destiny even faster we offer three levels of item support packages in our web store. Your hastened progress through the world will be well worth these deals!

Sadly i do not have time at all, specifically not at current. Otherwise i might really be tempted...

More info on the F2P model:

IMHO for once NC actually did a decent job! oO

EDIT: Bea is coming to my place tonight. IF we find any free time i guess we´d definitely take a look at the server. But i will not have time to play. :f

hey you tell me.. huehehhe.. let me think.. almost 5 years of playtime from which most were rather "hardcore´ish", almost dropped out of university, depression, trouble with family and best friends, several parties missed (coulda been worse though had god folk in the town here), tons of cash lost but hey, at least i got to know some cool people from around the globe oneeleven! Very Happy
anyways i´m actually downloading the client now since erade won´t make it tonight (stuck in madrid thx to iberia AGAIN) but i´m not gonna play there really. yet i am curious still. Very Happy

nah i like the game still but it has lost that player fascination for me and this pokemon update won´t change it. particularly the "developer" perspective did a lot there for me. if you got pretty much full insight how the game works technically, a lot of the fascination is gone. finally, to me this is a binary decision for the game or for something else. i m not the kind to mess with a bunch of lvl 40 chars in the weekend or to fool around for 2 years to finally become a nobody in s grades. and i do not have the cash atm to burn half a thousand euros to become a pawnerer with minimum effort. so i choose life. Very Happy

i´d say almost 98% this time nc, almost... that i could create my account with my "secure" password from dex on plaync was cool, what was slightly fail however was that the actual client apparently couldn´t handle my password, thus i had to simplify it.
client is the same old shit yet they actually introduced the idea of cutscenes (!!).
also server only slightly lagging, given the amount of current population i guess that is a minor achievement.

also:


just sayin´, just sayin´

best experience: hdr actually works with aa (supported by driver).
priceless: all the spanish begging gm to lvl them in shout.
you can now highfive a person. but maybe that was already introduced with highfive, hence the chronicle name highfive.
goodnight.

Few socials were introduced in Freya, including HighFive (so confuzzing!!). Smile

Is Laph "testing" it also that You shout his both names? Very Happy

And does this client still goes like a shit when on screen is more than 40 characters, no matter the specs?

Highfive in Freya? Confuzing indeed. Mad
(the social is a nice one though^^)

Nah i didn´t meet Laph but that shoutout was necessary of course nevertheless.

As for the client yea, pretty much that still. Went ape shit on my secondary PC which is a good one still. But then again now all races start off in (revamped) talking island and i had set everything to max. Average 10-15fps in the town but also everything crowded as hell.
For being virtually unlimited regarding the content this is a pretty good F2P game nevertheless. However with lvl cap raised to 99 i guess you do want to soften out the grind a little. Oh and that awakening thing: Happens sometime pretty late in endgame, you get pretty nifty extra stats and a skill or two. And your chars appearance seems to change to the new metrosexual look. You might want to go for that (or not), so you probably end up leaving money at the NCStore unless you got 24/7 for the game at your disposal.

The high five thingie was already resolved. Why waiting for some rus Company to run the same server is beyond me but ok. Very Happy
There are several things to speed up your lvling, also alongside your way you earn some extras by default, but of course the idea is that the general geek will use the item store to speed things up.

h5 is realy "hard", every epic is instanced and you can farm them 2 times a weeks (for some im not sure), epic 7s quest that gets you to 84ish (starting at lvl 79), all 3rd class forgotten scrolls are dropable by mobs and many things more

also GoD is not l2 anymore, after awekening its a whole new game
