Lineage®
II: Goddess of Destruction™—truly free! Why play a free to play MMO
with account or game limitations when you can play Goddess of
Destruction truly free? We've added free booster packs to help you level
faster, and a new in-game store loaded with useful items to enhance
your play experience. The L2 Store™ will offer items to supplement your
gameplay in the form of XP/SP boosts, potions, buffs, and other
consumable supplies, as well as cosmetic items and hunting helpers. In
addition, you can purchase premium packs that accelerate character
leveling for a longer period and contain exclusive items not available
for individual purchase. But you never have to purchase anything from
the L2 Store in order to enjoy the game mechanics or story content of
Lineage II. "Truly free" means exactly that: Buy only what you want, or
play all the way to level 99 without purchasing anything. It's your
choice. Play your way!

Ye but they'r promoting it as if it is any different from other f2p's

Sure the fact they didn't change the game basics and left those free, but boosts and all the other craps lol

Anyway its already overrun by bots now they won't even have to pay to bot

These mmorpg's that are getting the f2p business model lately are becoming as mobile communication providers.
Its like : " Talk 1 minute for only 0.50 euros only in T-mobile" and then followed by this in letters smaller than atoms : " The start of the call costs 5 euros and the establishing to the network casts 5 euros 2. We are not guilty if ur bills go sky high cos of these small letters cos we are practicly FREE " .

Follow-up Questions ahoy! Last week, Lineage II made the announcement that they would be going "Truly" Free-to-Play. ZAM got the opportunity to sit
down with NCsoft's Associate Producer, Nico Coutant and Executive VP of
Publishing, Matt Turetzky to talk about some of these upcoming changes
.
Well, it seems like some players, particularly the ones in Europe
concerned with the physical server migrations, are concerned about what
this new shift will mean for Lineage II. and I managed to catch up with
Nico Coutant again for some follow-up questions and answers. Enjoy!
ZAM:
One of the big questions for most players is on Innova taking over as
the official European service provider when Goddess of Destruction
launches. From what I can understand, it seems as though current players
on the European Naia server can retain their characters, but since the
Naia server is being physically moved to North America, their connection
speeds might not be optimal. Thus, most European players can either
start a new character on Innova, or they can stick with their characters
on Naia (albeit with a slower connection speed from Europe to North
America). I realize straight character transfers will not be likely, but
will there be any compensation for European players who need to restart
on Innova?


NCsoft: When we started planning the transition to a
new service provider for Lineage II in Europe, the primary goal was to
retain existing relationships and clans within the server. While we
evaluated multiple complex scenarios that included server transfers,
each had drawbacks that broke up the community and harmed the future
health of the server. In the end, moving the server location to US and
maintaining the active server community offered the most benefits. As
for the overseas location/performance issue, since we already have a
healthy mix of players from each region on each server, we’re confident
that performance lag is not an issue. And there is no plan to offer
account transfers or compensation between NCsoft West and Innova
versions of Lineage II, but players are welcome to start new characters
on either service.



ZAM: Will there be support for players outside of North America to purchase NCoins?

NCsoft: Yes, any players outside of North America that create a free account and purchase NCoins will be supported.

ZAM: Will the conversion rate of leftover subscription fees
to NCoin be a straight cash conversion? If players subscribe now, will
they be eligible for some of the free items and events taking place in
L2 up to its F2P shift?


NCsoft: Yes, the equivalent dollar amount of
remaining game time will be converted to the equivalent dollar amount of
NCoin. Any current or new subscribers will be eligible for all
promotions or events that are planned between now and launch of Goddess
of Destruction. Stay tuned to our website for more details about
upcoming events.

ZAM: Last question! Are there currently any pre-production
plans for content past this Goddess of Destruction expansion, or are you
more focused on seeing the North American transition and how it plays
out?


NCsoft: Yes, Lineage II continues to evolve! There
are already multiple chapters planned and in the works for Goddess of
Destruction, and the game will offer additional expansions for as long
as players continue to support it.

Christopher "Pwyff" Tom, Editor-in-Chief.

Lineage II's "truly free" gamble seems to be paying dividends, as NCsoft has just announced plans to roll out a new server to cope with the overwhelming demand.

The shard is open for business as of today, and it's been christened
Bartz as a nod to an older (and extremely popular) server that was
merged earlier in the game's lengthy lifespan. NCsoft is not allowing
transfers to the new shard, so you'll have to create a new toon if you
want to check it out. On the plus side, there are several server-first
rewards up for grabs, all of which will result in immortality via the Lineage II website.

Competitions include forming the first party, defeating the Queen Ant
raid, being the first clan to reach level five, and being the first
player to complete the first and second class transfer quests. Finally,
NCsoft has announced a spiffy exclusive for denizens of the Shilen
server. The first character who completes his or her awakening quest
will receive a jet bike mount bracelet that grants a permanent skill
transformation and the appearance of riding on a huge steampunk bike
(pictured above).
