Lightbulb Offline Shop

This is my suggestion.
Way better for servers economies.

You open your store like usual.
Then u have an option that, when u log off, your store keep opened.

I´ve seen it like:
with store opened you click "exit game", close your L2 window and your char still on with the store.
Or... u open store, then double click an item (Offline Shop) and your L2 client is closed, but u still online with your store opened.

The char leaves pt.
And the char connection is moved on a server so the store will be up till someone log the account (droping the store connection) or server restarts.

Very usefull...
So those ppl who can't keep their computer turned on all time can keep stores opened.
More stores = better economy.

Well... not a bad idea... but this would only work on servers of low population.
Just think: Giran is a bit crowded right now, I always have lag there. With the offline stores, it'll be 3x more ppl there... Maybe it would be still good.
But with the server merges it'll be like hell... Not only in Giran or aden, everywhere else too... I think this would put a huge load on the server

An NPC consignment sales system is being discussed by the developers, which would be the same as offline shops but without the crowding. For a variety of reasons it will take a very long time until something like this will be actually introduced. Read on from here downwards:

Yeah... but the auction system works fine there and in every other MMORPGs. It's a common thing, and I think it's much better than the private store system of Lineage 2.

One of my favourite things about L2 is the market trading system.

You can spend hours walking round giran trying to pick up a good deal and it's like real life shopping, not some shoddy auction house system.

The current shop system is one of the unique and enjoyable parts of L2 I hope it doesn't get replaced.

You have a point... I love to lag around in giran or aden for hours with the minimal frame option activated searching for the item(s) I need...

The afk shop system is also horrible considering the waste of electricity from computers running overnight for no other purpose than trading game items.

I'd rather have a more effective economy than a city full of shops any day.

Especially since NC Soft are doing their best to kill off as many revenue streams as possible. For example taking out the mos quests for EAS/EWS and replacing it with the **** that's currently in there was one of their most callous decisions (how am I gonna' make a +10 Vesper weapon on the cheap! ^_^).
Also what they plan to do to the AA market in H5 is even more ******ed. If AA is a problem for SA on weapons, reduce the friggin's cost of it instead of ruining one of the only stable market items left in the game. 2k+ S gems for adding SA to the top weapons is inhumane...

It's almost as if they want the game to be completely trade based, which is good as it combat's rmt, but there are more subtle and far better ways to do this.

Do u realize that most bots are for websites that sell adena, accounts or items?
And a very common use for a bot is to keep one store opened without client taking off the memory of computer?

Who is gonna be more benefited with the posibility of turning off the computer leaving store opened than the normal players?


And... if u have lag in town, probably is a problem of your connection, or your computer, cause i didnt noticed any lag here...

For the dificulty of walking on cities due the number of shops, its easy, just set up some areas that is not posible to open stores.
here is an example.

As if WoW were the only MMORPG where auction system exists...
I know, that many L2 players like the current system, because it's a bit original...
Oh... wait... it isn't! About half of the MMOs are using auction system and the other half are using private store system. I tryed few dozen MMOs, and I can tell, that the auction system is the better one.

Just a nexample: I want to buy DC Light set. I can't find anyone selling it for days. And someone is trying to sell one, but he can't sell it for days, because he's playing when I'm searching and I'm playing when he's selling. BUT! He puts it on to auction. I look the auction house, and I find a DC light set there. And all of this went down in maximum a half day. I get my armor, he gets his money.

Edit:
I just thought trough the whole thing... forget it... Lineage2 means private stores... it has it's feeling...

But about aping WoW, I had two notes:
Blizzard brings in two new races -> We get the Kamael
Blizzard announces Cataclysm -> NC announces High Five (What a stupid name...)
I know this is only for getting and keeping new and old customers. This is just business...

Blizzard has alot of great ideas to steal and use, this could even be one of them... but it certainly takes away from my game enjoyment. i would hate for my fun to be taken away to make someone who prefers a different system to have a better time.
