    No, not true, they are not playable - you may have a different opinion about this, but this time around we actually have facts on our side because our proof is that there're virtually zero newbies and server is dying. So no, you're not right, and you're wrong, and this is a serious issue. I mean yes - some people might be able to endure this and level up anyway, but this is not the point - the point is that majority of people are simply going to quit instead. All this can be solved easily by enabling free dualbox. Anyway I'm going off for the day, if anyone thinks he has an actual argument he's free to express it, I'm going to dismantle it first thing in the morning.

    Mages are not hard, but NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE to farm with when you have a) NOBODY TO PLAY WITH BECAUSE NEWBIE SPOTS ARE EMPTY and b) NO BOX TO RECHARGE YOU SO YOU HAVE TO SIT EVERY 2 MINUTES. Like golly gee, man.

    It's not about 'difficulties' for crying out loud, it's about game being playable at the first place. I've said it numerous times in this topic, some chars are simply unplayable without a boxed buffer. The server is desperately lacking newbies which are essential for server's health. If we force them to play without buffer, they're going to keep leaving and server is going to die. This is a serious problem.

    Explained above, we're talking about newbies - people don't want to pay €10 just to try out the server. Also €10 is actually a considerable ammount in some Eastern European countries with average salary of €300. /also that's average salary, not median, so many people there get around €150 or even less.

    It's not about filling newbie locations, it's about allowing people to level up to higher levels reasonably without quitting. But yeah, if you make the game enjoyable you're inevitably going to fill the newbie locations as well, creating a better environment for all of them. Also it's not about server jumpers, it's about ordinary people. As I said, try and make a sorc and level it up solo without a buffer. You don't have to be a server jumper to figure out it's stupid and just quit.

    Go ahead, make a sorcerer and show me how you level up to level up to 60 in a week solo without a recharger box - I'm not sure if it's even physically possible even if you went 24/7 without a break, provided you survive such marathon without collapsing. You might argue that people should just make summoner instead... But then we're back at the start where we're dictating people specific ways to go which makes the game playable. Old L2 players just want to play their favorite chars, if you force them to play something they don't enjoy, they're just going to quit and join other classic server. Just that simple.

    I'd also like to point out that just releasing Zaken patch is NOT going to solve this issue. This is only a temporary solution, because unless we solve the problem with dualbox locked behind paywall before the patch gets released, after 2 months top we're going to end up where we are now - old people naturally leave, and where they're supposed to be replaced with new people, it's just not happening because a) newbie don't pay 10€ to try out a server, b) the Zaken patch is going to fade away after some time so the newbie locations will be empty again and c) most chars are excruciating to level up without buffer. Also people are grossly overestimating the importance of Zaken patch to the newbie area - it's mostly going to bring some old folks back who left because they got tired with 2.0. How much impact it's going to have on newbie influx entirely depends on the advertisement but I have trouble believing they're going to put much effort in it.

    . I never really liked the SV argument because a) Do we really have to force newbie to spend several days fighting with bots to pick else's adena? Like that's the only way you can actually afford to exist on this server? Are we forgeting that this game is supposed to be fun? This is like forcing people to scrub toilets with a toothbrush before being allowed to a theme park (of course in real life you'd have no problem paying the entry fee because you pretty much know what you're paying for - here, you don't) a) How many newbies actually even know about this technique? There isn't like an official tutorial telling them to scrub that toilet. People usually just play the game like they would on any server they played before, and right now this just isn't working.

    You're probably not accounting the inflation of prices, the prices went up a lot since https://l2classic.club/forum/topic/3591-wts-col-20/ Right now the COLs are being sold at 250k. I can hardly imagine any newbie farming this ammount of adena while using shots while daring to buy at least absolutely basic gear (I mean even if you'd be okay farming with mid-nograde gun at 40, your farming efficiency just drops too much). Maybe some spoil setup farming on a perfect spot, but then we're not talking about playing for fun, we're talking about playing to barely afford existing. And even then, nobody wants to be forced to play at least 3 hours a day to be able to PLAY. It's not as much about longterm players as it's about random folks dropping by to test out a server. People really need to take the newbie's perspective: If you're an old L2 player looking to try 'that classic L2' (majority of players here), and you're thrown into a situation where you're forced to either a) pay 10€ just to try out the server or b) miserably farm without box in empty newbie spots, it's I think fairly easy to figure out why we have virtually zero newbies income on this server

    You're mixing apples and oranges, man. I was here at the server start so I know how it was, but the thing is - when server started there were tons of people to play with, now you have completely empty newbie locations (if you don't trust me, you can go check them yourself). The difference is, back then the exping was hard, but since you always had people to play with, it was fun. But now, when you're forced to play chars like nuker or destro solo without buffer, it's not just hard, it's just annoying. It even loses its original 'hardcore' spirit, it's just stupid. People absolutely need that dualbox to be able to get to higher levels reasonably.

    This is extremelly important truth that people, especially admins, need to hear. The dualbox ABSOLUTELY NEEDS TO GET ENABLED FOR FREE to make the game playable for newbies. I've said it million times and not a single time anyone has come up with any real counter-argument - if you're a new player looking to play nuker or destro, the f*ck you're going to do without a buffer? The 3rd+ window can remain behind paywall because I can see it as a more premium feature, but second windows is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY and it NEEDS TO BE ENABLED FOR FREE. Also I'm not even suggesting they should just dive in with free dualbox and expect the investment to pay off in the future (which it almost definitely will because the server is going to inevitably die much sooner if the dualbox stays locked behind paywall) - they can compensate the lack of income from dualbox with adding some soft P2W stuff into shop like +10% XP/SP runes or whatever, or adding similar bonus to the premium account to make it interesting (perhaps best option for new PA would be a combination of both early-game bonus like a sort of low-grade shadow gun according to level with late-game oriented bonuses like said XP/SP bonus and Death Penalty reduction). The thing is - yeah, some people are going to get mad about the P2W stuff, but there'd be very few (if any) people who'd leave because of that. Meanwhile tons of people leave early game because playing solo without box and without party is f*cking stupid.
