Dear all,

I found out about this project a few days ago and am really looking forward to it! One thing that has caught my attention are the server rates for the low-rate which is in development. Don't you think x5 for a C1 server is a bit too fast? C1 hasn't got a lot of content to offer and I feel like people will hit endgame much faster than intended. That would also mean that our Admin would have to be quicker in releasing C2, C3 and so on, which would also lead to more intense work for him.

How would you feel if the rates were lowered to x3? It's not as impossible as x1, but also preserves the marathon spirit of old Lineage 2.

Can't wait to hear your opinions!

Hello,

You are absolutely right about C1 speed and content. We are here to find the best rate for low level. But also I'm going to release smaller C2 features and content, not all at once (e.g. new skills first, then mini-raid bosses, then C2 client, then few other skills, then manor, etc etc)

Hi ppl.
This is 2020. x1 rates = 0 communication in 1 month, x3 = nice try, x5 = why not, x10 = fast and may be not last.
The answer for that is predicated on the future options, couple boxes/buffer = lower rate(x1-x5), 1 box/no buffer = higher rate(x5-x15)
That's what i have for today.

It won't be x1 for sure. x10 - looks like mid-rate for me. Truth will be somewhere between x3 - x5 - x7.
Boxes will be allowed, don't know however their limit (e.g. 1 main, + 1-n box, + 1-k offline stores, so on). Keep in mind, that in later Chronicles rates are higher by default, e.g. x3 for C3 is nearly x5 for C1.

Hey, I see what you are saying and I agree - we can't devote all our time to the game as we used to. The way I understand it - MasterToma's idea is the recreation of good old Lineage 2, without the x1 no-life grind. I advocate for x3, because, as already mentioned - content will be scarce, a lot of old Lineage 2 beauty is within the simplicity of 1-40 lvl gameplay, and I feel like x5 would be a bit too fast for the 1-20 lvl experience.

x10 or more sounds like mid-rate and I don't see a point in playing C1-C4 if you want a high-paced Lineage 2.

Yeah, sure.
For me the x5 + 3 boxes is good, but it can be 2 boxes if buffer with pp will be available.
Adm, can you show the pre-concept to activate discussion process on forum)

Preparing good concept requires time :D More or less low-rate pre-concept is described here.

Ofc, we should align quests as well to the rates (either x1 drop and xN reward or xN drop and x1 reward - each quest will be tweaked individually)

So it will be x3 or x5. Also, I would like to implement vote-reward system, which has never been present in PTS C1-C3. This should motivate a bit to login often ;)
But I'm still working hard reconstructing original L2Server byte by byte. About 60% is done, but I need to complete at least 85% (excluding siege related staff and other late-game concepts like castle taxes etc) to start low-rate server and focus on C1+ (new skills from C2, C2 client, etc).

Even with 85% this low-rate server will be much better then original one, since many original C1 exploits and bugs were already fixed. Also, another member, Zconll, fixed all content related C1 scripts.
