  1. Next season

    Thank god we got IL instead where 90% of players play F1 archer/mages. :3
  2. H5 Recruitment

    Just disable clans completely and have "chaos" and "order" clan. Zerging problem solved. On the other hand i doubt this will happen either. Not sure about others, but the way i see it you are killing the strong point of H5 atm, and that being all classes being playable/useful by putting everything on buffer.
  3. H5 Recruitment

    There's no way to satisfy both, a you will just end up with both sides unhappy. I don't see why we cant try that for once with minimal custom stuff. In worst case scenario the server will die in 2/3 weeks instead of the usual 1 month.
  4. H5 Recruitment

    So instead of trying something new lets have the server die in 2 weeks again. Here are some facts: Nothing stops solo's from joining parties. Setups that favored solos/randoms made the server die in less than a month. If at least 1 average guild joins on each side and there's quality PvP more and more guilds will join. And now is a perfect time for a guild/party based serversince Bless flopped hard/will be dead soon and many of those who tried it areex-L2 players/guilds that will probably get back to their good old game.

    Not stacking with AI should be enough.
  6. H5 Recruitment

    This. Get 2-3 average guilds to join, give the solo crybabies the dark souls treatment and the server will last for a good while.
  7. H5 Recruitment

    Its been ages since i played here so i know only what happened in the last 2 seasons that was catering to solo's/random's and how long the seasons lasted. As long as there are not at least a couple of average skill, semi-known guilds to attract people/enemies the same will happen. Apparently Emerald said he don't plan to make support classes viable this season either so it'll be solo/random season again, hope that this time will work tho. And to answer your question, yes i would play. I did it on RvG where both the skill floor/ceiling was far higher so i don't see why i would give up here. Farmed players can still farm without issues while newbies can always play healer/support.
  8. H5 Recruitment

    I don't see what stops anyone from joining a party.
  9. H5 Recruitment

    I really don't see why people consider IL balanced tbh. If by balanced you mean 2 F1 classes (SPS/HE) that are played by 90% of the serverthat's not balance, that's a lack of variety. If in H5 there are buffs that are not on NPC buffer andsolo's/bad's don't cry their eyes out cause of it, there will be people playing even PP.
  10. H5 Recruitment

    That's some good news. Even tho its non of my business but here's a suggestion. Make sure that the testers you pick know what they are talking about. *cough*People where cryingabout stuns while in DC robe *cough*
  11. Maybe it's the time to do it.

    Ah, ok, thanks for clarifying thought you meant what you said in your previous post for a moment.
  12. Maybe it's the time to do it.

    This is sarcasm right? I normally wouldn't ask but the rest of your post have a more serious tone.
  13. Maybe it's the time to do it.

    Well, i didn't point it out in my last postsince i believe that everyone know that. Lineage 2 community died years ago. I'm not talking about numbers obviously since it keeps tanking, but there's no actualcommunity anymore. And that's what makes it far, far harder to keep a server populated nowadays, you need a constant stream of new players. As long as 5-10% of each wave of new players stick to the server, there will eventually be a community that can sustain the server and keep attracting players even if 99% of them leave after a while. The problem is that you need a server that.almost flawless in anyway to do that now-days, so the question is, is it possible to even make such a server, and if it is, what are the costs and does it worth it? Emerald is right about one thing tho and there's no denying that if you ask me. Dex would be the first one that comes to mind, it was a good server there's no denying that with an amazing number of online players all day long. I mean i cant even remember how many months if not years passed till they fixed daggers. (Blows didn't use SS.) If we go even gonna gomore back in time we got powerhouses like Paradise/Extreme servers that even stated in their advertisement "70-80% C3/C4 features working!" Such a server today would not attract even 50 players.
  14. Maybe it's the time to do it.

    Sorry but saying that the classes where balancedis cringe worthy at least. No, i don't blame neither Emerald or Ruby for that, there's so much that they can balance a chronicle that only a handful of classes are playable anyway. And if you think that all the classes or most of them are playable, do the following simple experiment, put a limit on each class allowed per faction, not roles,classes. Do that on IL and then try that again on epilogue/H5 and compare the QQ/people that will even bother to play when top/easy mode classes are not available. Of course i'm not saying that there where not managing/community issues either. Doing nothing about exploiters/scammers. Ignoring suggestion from experienced people cause bobs will get upset. Allowing people to spam in gibberish 24/7. I understand that you had to compromise on some stuff since the majority of community are GRs/BRs. The sad truth is that no-one will come to fight/compete vs them. You need to attract at least barely known/skilled guilds/players, they are the ones who will attractenemies/fanboys/even randoms. And if they wanted to play in a non-English speaking server where rules are not being enforced they would do so in one of the countless RU servers. I'm pretty sure you already know that but you cant please everyone. You wanted to keep the server solo/unskilledfriendly and you saw the results, maybe you should have tried to focus more on the team-play? Remove cap from parties, have only basic available inbuffer, make epics more retail like. I suppose you get the general idea. Again i don't mean to disrespect neitheryou/Rubyor your work and hope that you know that by now. I don't know if ill play or not in next season so not gonna bother trying prove my points anymore. I'm gonna repeat my suggestionto you once again, make a small PM group with people that are experienced and know what they talk about. I have seen some known names in the forum from both low rates and faction servers, most of them didn't play or even logged in the forums lately but if you can get them to help will worth it. P.S. Sorry for the long post, i prefer to explain my thoughts and prove my points rather than keeping a post short.
  15. L2 on Mac?

    Afaikthere not a mac client of any chronicle. There was talk about Mac support back in the day but they never did it after all.
