First, sorry for my English. I'll try to write the best way that I can.
I took nine years playing Lineage 2. I played in official and private servers. Lately, I've seen that are servers that are succeeding, and that servers are failing. By this I will give my suggestion. This is what you need this server, at least that's what I think.
After so many years, the old players are few. Everything has evolved and the number of players that are now not content just to have a retail server.
The overall game and now all existing games has become more competitive than ever. We humans love to prove who is the best.
So you should focus more on making external events with small rewards in currencies server (eg RUR).
In addition you ought to be getting in the top in the list of best websites in search engines like "www.gtop100.com
" or "www.l2top.co
And something that can help you to attract many players is to use TwitchTV.
Players do nothing without a profit. So that the benefit should be some kind of reward (eg RUR) with which they can get some benefits in the game. (Life Stone, hair accessory, vitality, rune for exp / sp among other things...)
My suggestions are:
- Add a way to vote for the server simply by clicking
(as already exists in some private servers)
- Rewards for people to vote for the server
- Rewards for three best video pvp week.
- Rewards for best screenshot week
- Some GM make use of Twitch TV showing pvp server and highlights of the Castle SiegeThe videos showcase the best that you can have a server. You must do much stress upon this.
If you have any other suggestions (not Unbalance or break the scheme that makes this unique server) please I would love to hear it. I think this post is necessary.
I have another suggestion, you Take I hope you well and without creating any controversy. I just try to be as honest and clear as possible.
When you enter the server find that is open to everyone without restriction of any country, but is almost entirely Russian-speaking. This is not a problem until you find Russian characters in stores in major public chats (global, shout, trade, hero).
This is one of the main reasons (I would say the biggest cause) that many players choose another server. Maybe restringuir use these characters in shops and public chats would be a good option (for Whisp, clan and party is not a problem).
I can understand that the server is Russian and all the work that doing is great, but if we talk about attracting people and that the server is full for a long time, this is necessary, now more than ever. The English is the international language and that it should be used. Again, please do not want to start an argument, I just want to think clearly and logically.
Lineage 2 Classic and works in Russia and in a short period of time will also be available in the rest of Europe. This is something to consider as many players leave the server.
Again, sorry for my english. A greeting and thank you very much.
