      • More information on these items will be available after maintenance.

    • NOTE: You need to have bought the Prestige Pack before July 31st and claimed your prestige pack items on your character in order to qualify for the compensation.
  • No XP lose upon death ends.
All website login, account management functions, and NCoin purchase functions will be unavailable during this time as well. Estimated downtime for the website is approximately 5 hours.

You don't need this to remove bots, just need the will, because any experienced l2 player see an obvious bot in 10-60 sec. But... NC doesnt have too much ppl who played lineage2 seriously (may be don't have at all). So they use some "tools" for months to detect if a full auto party exping 24/7 are bots or not
May be they also afraid to see server with small online (1000?) after removing all bots...

Since the vitality XP bonus is increased, doesn't that mean that it will be used up more quickly?

I mean, the more the exp you get, the faster the vitality is burnt away..

This change affects positively only those who have vitality potions...

But of course .. That spawns interest in vitality maintaining pots from the store. It's business...they're not our friends.

Sometimes you guys (ncwest staff team) need give us "good news"...really good ones... yes 300% is nice but people are broken, drops are horrible, bots, economy is destroyed etc etc... just check forum how is it now and compare with some months ago...
I understand that you guys maybe have "orders" and time for to do the things, for sure everything is programmed... but look around, the community feedback is not positive.

Do you realize that 80% of the server population are bots ? Bots never complains, they don't even go to the forum. We, as human players, represents 20% ! Who give a f*** about 20% of the customer base while the 80% others pay for XP runes / Drop Runes ?

It's a business, don't forget that.

is that the same eva's rune that was bugged and never (?) got fixed?

... and vitality bundle! ... so thats where the cheap 40 coin vita pots went!

but honestly now, isnt it a little strange that for shop update and 300% vita with no bugfixes you estimate 5hrs maintenance? ...just sayn'

I'm sorry but why is everyone always up NC's butt for bot removal. Isnt it pretty obvious by now that NC will not do anything about the bots. It's clear NC knows about them. Its just my opinion / 2cents....but the bots are making NC money. If I ran this company...by now my motto would be..." if I cant beat them I will just hire them!"

Thanks!! This is a great update I can't wait to get my characters online! More vitality than you can shake a stick at and I bet more players will be online than last week!

I love Wednesdays!

Not sure if this she is there by purpose or bug, but Clarissa (Giran GK) is spawned at Fantasy Island. The original Gatekeeper Paddie is not working.

Thanks for advice about "stackable" effect.
Also thanks for NOT advice about "not stackable" effect "compensation buff" with "rose essence" buff.

I can't log more than 3 clients in my pc, in last 30 days I see great number of groups with 7 players in the same party, bypass the client limitation is a banable ofense?

Any ETA for Museum Statistics back to work?

Didn't "Museum Statistics" and the associated town statues get removed because the statistics promoted bad behavior?
