Smile Lineage II: Grand Crusade Coming March 29!

Adenís bravest heroes, led by Leona, are called to the Keucereus Alliance Base in an urgent plea for help to thwart the Embryo threat advancing from the Atelia Fortress. But things arenít quite as they seem in Gracia. In his final preparations to claim all Seven Signs and harness the divine power of the Grail, Etis van Etina has tempted an unlikely new apostle toward his malevolent cause. Kain van Halterís desperate search for a way to restore his sister Giselleís life has become his undoing, as he's now forced into the servitude of Embryo and charged with striking down his former allies at the Keucereus Alliance Base.

Grand Crusade, the next major chapter for Lineage II, will be released for free to all players on March 29! Adventurers will be called upon to aid in the defense of the Keucereus Alliance Base, journey through the Mystic Tavern to witness Kainís fateful fall from hero to Embryo apostle, lead the offensive into the Messiah Citadel, and embark on all-new Exalted Quests to reach even greater power and renown.

In addition to a wealth of new content, Lineage II: Grand Crusade includes class updates, ability system changes, a new Monster Card collection system, an expanded Faction system, Boss and Hero weapons, an increase on the maximum Adena cap, and a number of User Interface improvements.

Watch the official Lineage II: Grand Crusade cinematic trailer and stay tuned for more details leading up to the Wednesday, March 29 release!

Yea? is the game dynamics still going to be for the dogs? Will hide characters still get to come out of hide and two shot people of equal levels and gear?

Which class will be the op class this round? give us a heads up so the re-rollers can get started and the other classes can just give up and quit as usual.

Will there still be no real PVP because every one will be in instances for the majority of this chronicle? Will only those classes with hide walk the streets of L2 freely?

Inquiring minds would like to know.

In the Korean original the thing is called 메사*아/Mesaya Citadel:
http://lineage2.power.plaync.com/wik...82%B4%EC%84%B1
Messiah is 메시아 in Korean (note the different spelling):
https://ko.wikipedia.org/wiki/%EB%A9...8B%9C%EC%95%84

That notwithstanding, Etis van Etina and his underlings are really crusaders/صليبيين in the way bin Laden used the word; check the symbol on Gate Captain Mamut's helmet:
http://lineage2.power.plaync.com/wik...AC%B4%ED%8A%B8
More than 70% of the South Korean population perceive Christianity as a manifestation of absolute evil

By the way, this is the real Mesaya Citadel:

To be fair, he never said it with certainity and as far as i understood, several factors were independent of their will. While I agree that NCsoft is highly unprofessional when it comes to communication (and many other things ), Neutron here tried his best to keep us informed when he could predict something, let's at least give him that credit.

Attempt to do and imitation of doing and lack of competence are few very different things.

If you say you will have something done by some prenamed date, do it. Yes it is possible, that force majeure appear and there's nothing that can be done to meet deadline, but if you experiencing problem after problem, think twice before stating new date.

This is a commercial product as players pay for NCoins (few more, lots less) which makes staff more or less responsible for the services they are providing. Let's skip the part where someone will try to argue that they don't care about the players, as even if they don't want to, they are required by HQ as even if L2 is not priority project anymore, it still makes cash flow in. Yidao's words about Koreans not carrying about the game at top level (free interpration of his words) are only partly true. They don't care enough to do something about balancing the game, removing bots, etc., but it would stupid to assume that they don't care if their sub company doesn't provide public relations they are paid to do.

There is no participation medal in business. If you get paid, do your job.

You do have a point but that's assuming he purposefuly slack off. Ncwest has shown its imcompetence more than once so nobody can be blame for thinking that .

I don't think he HAS to be on the delay he announced because this is purely a matter of communication and getting us informed on when patch note should come approximately (to fulfill the constant forum whining).

For all I know he could just give us patch note a few days before update launch, it wouldn't change anything for their plans, it's all about satisfying the community (which of course MUST be done).

I'm very happy they doing all hard work and doing it well (I guess NCWest patch notes are by far the best out of all regions), but I don't like when someone give (despite its just prediction) exact date. I would prefer to say "we are working on it, soonô "

NcWest has never been more than a lower tier of tech support (SysAdmins) to the company... I don't get why people still think that NcWest can do anything to this game, all they can do is request stuff from the dev. team... It's never really been in their control, lol.

As for the patch notes, they have been handling it correctly, too many people here are just impatient. They never gave a set date or guarantee... only that as soon as they were ready, they would release them. What's the point of releasing stuff rushed only to go back and make changes/adjustments and corrections.
