Lightbulb Introducing the Hero Coin Rewards Program



As part of Lineage IIís upcoming 10th anniversary this year, weíll be implementing some great new features for our players. Our anniversary may be a few months away, but we didnít want to wait until then to roll this out. Weíre very happy to announce the launch of the Hero Coin program, which is designed to reward players who make purchases from the L2 Store or L2 Galleria. Itís a way to make your NCoin go further, and you donít have to do anything--Hero Coins are earned automatically.

Hereís how it works: when you purchase an item from the L2 Store or L2 Galleria worth 80 NCoin or more, you will receive 1 Hero Coin for every 80 NCoin you spend. Items over 800 NCoin will also provide a 10% bonus of Hero Coin. Youíll see how much Hero Coin youíre getting before you complete your purchase. And the Hero Coins are delivered right away with your item!

You can start earning Hero Coins with all purchases starting today. But thatís not all. We wanted to make sure that players who have made previous purchases were able to take advantage of the Hero Coin program as well. If youíve made a qualifying purchase in the L2 Store or L2 Galleria since November 30, 2011, you have Hero Coins to spend. You can check your balance by viewing your quest inventory.

Click here for more information on the Hero Coin Rewards Program.

If you have any questions about the program, feel free to ask them below.

So, for every 80 nccoin I spend I get 1 Hero Coin?

I need 32500 Hero Coins for a Dark PvP Weapon stone...

80 NCcoin is roughly $1.12 US after tax when using gamecards from gamestop...

32500 x 1.12 = $36,400 US

Nope, you guys aren't clueless about much of anything at all...




edit: and then you limit the 100% enchant scroll that only goes to +12/+7 to 1 per account? do you not want this system to be used at all or wtf is your thought process here?


edit 2: i had ~ 4300 hero coin upon logging in btw, so id say im a regular nc coin purchaser. (i dont think prestige packs were counted for previous months tho...)

so not even that this new system is stupid. but if you merged your account late (like me who just came back to game) it does not count the purchases you got on your old account. this system is so money oriented that at this point i would compare retail to a very expensive privateserver.

NCsoft,

Two things: as natalie portman mentioned the exchange ratio of ncoin to high end items is greatly out of skew. The RMT market sells many of those items for much much less than what you are proposing to 'reward' players with. The hero coin system wont combat RMT on those items at all, if anything it will make the RMT items more attractive. For example a rulers authority is listed on certain rmt sites for approx 1500-2000 USD, which is nowhere near the TENS OF THOUSANDS you have listed the item as (via ncoin exchange).

Secondly, hero coins should be a tradable item that players can exchange between each other.

They didn't even put all the hero coins onto one character(your main). They were given to the character you made the purchase on and spread out through the account.

There are 23 items at 50 Hero Coins or less that you can purchase. Also, remember it's cumulative throughout the year so you don't have to spend it now.

You guys have lost it... is the entire NCstaff that worked on this project and decided on the prices in crack???????????????


A blessed enchant weapon Lucky stone = 319 NCCOIN.
that goes for 2000 Hero coins.
just to give an example.. YOU GUYS ARE INSANE.


The idea behind this system is nice, rly, but I spend ALOT of money on xp runes and other items. My reward = 1358 Hero Coins. LOL!


This is rly the last drop for me. I have no more faith whatsoever in the NCwest crew and devs. Refusing to ban the bots is bad enough.. but this just proves you guys are completely out of your mind and have NO IDEA whatsoever about what people earn or CAN spend on games.


to end wit ha quote from Vali's intial post here: (I already corrected it for you)


weíll be implementing some great new features for our MILLIONAIRE players

1 word for you: REHAB.


a normal human being is going to need 10 years at least to save up enough hero coins to get any of the top items.


another example:


Dark eternal pvp stones.
32500 for 1 stone.


you need 20 of those to do a R99 breastplate alone!!!!!!!

Hi Vali!

Could you tell the guy who is in charge of the ingame store to be precise?
The ammount of items you get when you purchase with hero coin is not clear.

For example: the sale of
Energy of Destruction - 30 Hero Coins
doesn't say how many EoD you get.
I'm pretty sure you would not give only one for 30 hero coins since you can buy it on NCoin too which sells at the rate of 80NCoin for 2 EoD.

I hope that guy will pay more attention to his work in the future!
Thank you.
