Good day fellow players,

I am pleased to announce that server is now LIVE! Actually it was announced live on 2018-03-03 as promised, but so many elpies came... What can I say the party was huge, for tree days we have celebrated and I was there, drank mead, which has dripped through the beard...

The server seems to be pretty stable and worked out, no more big changes should be needed, so there we are, happy playing!

It makes me happy to see people like you being passionate about their server, hopefully it will grow well :wink:

Sadly server is dead, no interest from GM's on forum either to fix the bugs at least

Well it's tough, you need a good advertisement these days... I'm sure there's a demand for true oldschool chronicles like C4, but can't attract players if they don't know the server exists :?

Yeah, either that or you need a well established name. Dex didn't need to advertise its Insolence server much and has over 1.5k players at peak times while Warage had the most disgusting marketing campaign and is now sitting at 300 players or something.

Keeping your population up is difficult too. You need a vote API based functionality because the l2 topsites encourage that type of shit behaviour. I'd shut them all down if it were me. It encourages stuff like vote rewards or boosted stats if you voted (admins who have no clue about this game and its economy), but it can be done well too (a bit of extra XP for example is quite benign).

Opening a new L2 server nowadays looks like a shitshow if you have no name to back it up. I've personally considered it but it's just bullshit.

I guess it'll be good time to beak radio silence :)

As as stated, C4 did seem to have some potential, but reality is different. Life if harsh and L2 is really old now. Anyhow, I am very happy that I was able to make it into reality and to make it as good for a one man project as it got. I feel content for that.

With such attention, this server should be taken down, but lucky for us, it cost literally nothing to run it. So it will just run as is. Please don't expect much attention from me (aside from periodical reboot and backup). Unless we start seeing players that is.

Thank you all for your support, it was sure fun for the time being!

P.S.
If anyone would be interested to obtain my files (without the DB content of course) and attempt to spin off their own project, feel free to drop me a message.

Huge respect for this. Will keep fingers crossed some more players find their way there :wink:

Welcome to the new season,

Few good news for this occasion:

Quote:
2018-09-17
Setup: Soul Crystals level 11-13 added to the secret trader.
Setup: Blacksmith no longer require to have recipes in order to craft basic materials.
Setup: Warehouse Chief now has an authority to issue Dualsword Craft Stamp (not cheap tough).
Fix: Some more HTML errors.
Fix: 7 Signs quest events.


As you can see, plenty of news here. Most notably, it is now possible to buy Soul Crystals which are needed for A and S grade weapons from a secret trader which can be found in the dark place during the day time (Hint: Rune area should be worth to be explored).

Image

There are some more good news, like Crafting As a Service and availability of a Dual Craft Stamps from warehouse chiefs! Not bad for a start of a season, huh?
