Hello prospective players!

As you all may know, the 7-Signs event is usually not very interesting on any server. Rates are usually always higher than 1x so farming Ancient Adena is relatively easy. Today we will implement an idea to make 7-Signs, sieging and item procurement more interesting.

What will our 7-Signs look like?
We consider Dawn to be the side of the server nobility which controls castles. The general situation introducé, is that castle owners only have 55% crop yield per day as long as Dawn does not control any seal. Per seal that Dawn controls, crop yield is increased by 15% up to 100% (standard retail production). This means that not having a Dawn victory, severely limits castle production. In addition, when Dawn does not win, taxation is much lower (retail function). This crop yield will be lowered the moment sold crops are turned into ripe crops. This means players will still be able to sell the number of crops normally available. Material creation is therefore not sabotaged.

We consider Dusk to be the side of unaffiliated clans, players and alliances that are fighting castle owners. Dusk has the benefit that when all seals are won, Dusk players get access to additional items in the Priestess of Dusk shop. These items are:
- Book of Giants
- Quick Healing Potions
- Dual Sword Craft Stamp
- Enchant Armor / Weapon D to A
The prices for these items will be comparatively higher when compared to manor production. Manor production will be the more efficiënt method for clans to mass-produce BoG / QHP and Enchants.

In addition, all siege guards and mercenaries are nerfed greatly when Dusk wins. Crest time for attacking clans is also reduced.

All other retail win / lose functions are in place. If Dawn or Dusk wins each seal, the opposing side can not access Catacombs / Necropolis.


To balance this event, we will release castles for siege based on the number of siege ready clans.

Example: We consider 7 clans to be siege-ready, we will release 4 castles. This will lead to the situation where 3 clans can not have a castle. 3 clans will be interested in signing on for Dusk as Dawn will not give them any advantage and will instead, give their enemies advantages.

With this method, we want to make 7-Signs more relevant and give factions the opportunity to severely sabotage their enemies.

Update:

Our apologies for making another post within 24 hours. We would like to make 3 aspects of COTP clear:

1: Botting non-afk is allowed. You may use any program and phx. We reserve the right however, to kick, jail or ban any player that uses scripts that make PvP, Raids/Epics or Sieges unfair / influenced.

2: Buying / selling player 2 player for real money is allowed. We do not care what players do with their items. The staff will NEVER spawn / enchant / augment items but players may buy and sell each others' items free of charge or scrutiny from the staff.

3: Voting: As owners, we want to interfere as little as possible. Voting will not give you items or any other material rewards. Voting for our server will give you 4 extra buff slots. We have DISABLED Divine Inspiration so 20 + 4 buffs are possible where those last 4 buff slots are rewarded by voting. This way, we think we have a fair voting system that does not create items or monetary rewards.


Have fun!


Hmm, the point (1) is an interesting approach... Could be a slippery slope though :? I mean - how do you check if the player is afk or not? Do you PM everyone who bots if he's playing? And what if he's just on different character? And what if he's on internet - he isn't technicallly 'away from keyboard' :mrgreen:

Hello Herlitz!

We have an easy captcha system that can easily be entered by people who are not AFK. We can trigger this captcha manual during bot patrol. It will also trigger automatically but we will not tell players the triggers we have implemented for this captcha. There are multiple triggers.

In addition, drop rates have been modified in such a way, that the most lucrative method of gaining lifestones and enchants, is farming raid bosses for gold and using the gold in the gold store.

Botting is actually not really lucrative after you have your armor and weapon.

Hello players!

Our latest YouTube addition, is a small movie on PvP and Combat Zones. In sum:
- Attacking a raid boss makes you flag
- Around Epic bosses, we have combat zones, PvP Free
- Killing someone outside a combat zone while being in the combat zone, only makes you flag

Search on YouTube: COTP PvP & Combat Zones

Update:

We have completely removed all tattoos from the game and will not release them. Many players gave us feedback that tattoos are too custom and not part of a hardcore classic experience.

Buff slots are now 24 after using divine books. Additional buffs are possible by voting.

Hello players!

3 days left for our launch! We plan on launching at february 23 at 1900 GMT+1. Before the launch, we wipe the server completely. Tattoos are also completely removed. On launch, all epics are unavailable. Depending on how much players we have after a few days, we will release the epics 1 by 1. Remember that our epic bosses have received heavy boosts.

The first sieges will happen on the weekend of 10 and 11 march. Depending on how many siege ready clans we have, we will release a certain number of castles for sieges. All clans are automatically level 5 on creation. We want clans to kickstart into this game to focus on farming, crafting and PvP.

Whether we have 10 or 1000 players, we will keep this server up for at least 2 years.

Tell all your L2 friends about us! This is the beginning of a new era. We guarantee you a good environment to play and a professional staff who will hear what players have to say about the configuration.


Best regards! Hope to see you friday!

COTP Staff

We just started our server. The first players have been welcomed!

See you soon!

With or without players, we stay online for 2 years and keep improving.

We are steadily growing. Instead of 1.000 people at the start and 100 people after 4 weeks, we are getting close to 100 steady players (so that's unique players. No shops and boxes.).

We hope to grow to a nice steady community of 200 active players within 4 weeks.

Whatever happens, the golden rule is that L2COTP stays online for 2 years.

Remember: Botting non-afk is allowed.

Thanks!

First sieges will commence on 24 and 25 March. At least 1 castle will be in a favorable time zone for our latin american players.



Olympiad will be opened shortly after.



Our server is still brand new. No grand epics are killed, no castles taken and no heroes yet. Great opportunities for capable clans!

Hello players and followers of this topic.



Recently we have added a new feature to the server. Custom sound crystals. These crystals use the tutorial voice option. Many players have the tutorial volume up high because of our captcha alarm. Now you can play sound fragments to these players using our custom soul crystals. A YouTube movie will follow in the next few days!
