Four years Lineage II Firebird
Dear adventurers,
today we are celebrating our fourth anniversary.
After all the problems early this year I wasn't sure if this project would survive much longer.
Most projects close after some months but well, we are still here. ;)

As some of you noticed, I currently don't spend a lot of time in game.
This is due to personal life changes, but I am confident that this might change very soon resulting hopefully in more events.

To celebrate our anniversary, I invite everyone on this Saturday to fire some fireworks you've collected the last days in game. :)
Additionally, the adena drop rate might be a bit enhanced on that day, but only for 24 hours starting after a server restart in the morning. ;)

Yours sincerely,
Lineage II Firebird Adminitrator

Lag issues for players from the east
Dear adventurers,
there seems to be some connection problem for many players from the east (russia, greece, ...).
We are investigating the issue right now.

If something new comes up, we will inform you.

UPDATE: The problems have been solved for now.

Yours sincerely,

New dedicated server
Dear adventurers,
due to problems with our current server (lags, crashes, ...) we decided to move the project to a new dedicated server.
Since more and more players are joining or returning we are going to get a server with more power which also costs more.

We are going to transfer the data to the new server during one evening evening very soon. This should not take longer than 3 hours.

Most, if not everyone of you knows, that this project is financed almost completely by ourselves and we very rarely receive any donations.

To help us keeping the project alive we want to remind everyone that you can donate using bitcoin.
We chose bitcoin to remain anonymous since there have been threats against me in the past.
As always, there are no benefits in return for any donation as it was since the project started in September 2015.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,
Lineage II Firebird Administrator

A storm is coming
Dear adventurers,

during the last weeks more and more violations of the rules have been reported.
It seems, that some of you act especially stupid with interpreting the rules.
Luckily, most of my players know exactly the purpose of each rule.

Since many players thought, that after the violation of a rule nothing happens, I started to work on a "Hall of Shame" list, which should list all the characters that were punished or warned.
To announce that, I have posted a topic, but that topic escalated.

I kept silent and read all the replies in there and was shocked about how you accused each other of cheating and exploitíng, fearing every player thinking about starting here, away.

Today I logged in at 2.30 PM and saw player "Kali" bugging raidboss Remmel just in front of me.
Will you never learn?

It's enough!

I shutdown the server and decided to spend the rest of the day to check some characters and accounts.
The cleaning is happening right now and I will get rid of all players, that have nothing else to do the whole day except searching for flaws in the rules to gain an advantage.
Additionally I will get rid of all players who are toxic elements in the community and are blaming me and my team day and night for everything that comes into their minds.

If your account is locked after this, you have been caught directly or indirectly.
Better do not share your account next time on your next server.
Stay away, you are not welcome here anymore.

I prefer to keep this project open for less, but great players that enjoy the feeling of classic Lineage II than dishonest und exploiting players.
From now on: If you violate a rule you will be facing severe consequences.

Hopefully the situation normalizes soon, because currently I do not enjoy the project as I did years ago.

"After every storm, there is fresh air."

Yours sincerely,
Lineage II Firebird Administrator

Server lags and crashes
Dear adventurers,
as many of you already noticed, we are currently facing a heavy lag/crash of the gameserver every day at 8.50 PM local time.
We couldn't locate the problem yet so we will try to find the issue with our server hoster.

That means that we are going to turn off the game services on Monday, April 22nd 2019 at 8 PM local time.
We will monitor the server after that until around 9 PM local time.
Hopefully we will see the problem and be able to fix it.

The game services should return later that day so that the overall downtime should not exceed 2 hours.

We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause.

Yours sincerely,
Lineage II Firebird Administrator

Reporting rule violations with L2 replays
Dear adventurers,

it is now possible to upload a L2 Replay as well as a screenshot to our website.
This makes it a lot easier for us to investigate a violation of our rules.

Record a replay ingame with "/start_videorecording" and "/stop_videorecording" or the corresponding action in the actions menu (ALT+C).
Do not forget to make a screenshot of the scene, since replays do not contain characternames.

You can see your replays in your" Lineage II Firebird / Replays" Folder.
Your screenshots are in your "Lineage II Firebird / System" folder.

Login on the website and then upload the replay as well as the screenshot in the report-section you can see in the menu on the left side.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,
Lineage II Firebird Administrator

Change of rule 18: Connection limit
Dear adventurers,
since there have been reports that rule 18 is still violated by some players even after making some changes to the servers code, we were forced to redefine this rule to clarify some things.
We encourange everyone to head into the rules section and read all rules again, especially ruile 18 which is now defined as:
________________________________________________________________________________

§18 - Connection limit
You are allowed to have two connections per IP/person to our server. That means you are allowed to have two characters online simultaneously if you play alone.
We don't care how many computers you use or have, we care about the connections per person and per IP.
Any attempt to run more than two boxes per person (even by using multiple IPs) is considered a violation of this rule.
In rare occasions, a player may get the permission to bring an additional character online at the same time, assumed he has a very good reason for it.
"I want to level up three chars at the same time!" or "On other servers I had four boxes open!" will not be permitted.
Violating this rule as well as the conditions of the permission to bring additional characters online, will be punished as described below.
Characters with different IP addresses, which are following a hunting or fighting character for an extended period of time, are not considered independent and violate this rule too.
________________________________________________________________________________

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,
Lineage II Firebird Administrator

Lineage II: The Chaotic Chronicle 3: Rise of Darkness
Dear adventurers.

We finally upgraded our server to chronicle 3 and also changed the colors of the website as we do with every new chronicle.
The data in the library as well as in the database will be updated in the next few days.
Until then feel free to check out the new skills, areas and monsters ingame.
To connect to the upgraded server you need to download our new client. Head to our download section and grab the new client. It's size is around 1.8GB.

The server will go live today in 4 hours, that is 8 pm local server time.

Yours sincerely,

Fatal exploit: Item duplication found
Dear adventurers.

Yesterday night we found signs of duplicated items during a random
check of the database. We immediately took a closer look and found proof
of item duplications in December 2018 especially from one clan.
Regular items as well as weapons and armor parts were duplicated.
The dimension of this incident is not yet fully determined, but it's probably huge.

We did some quick research and blocked over 25 accounts immediately.
The server was also patched with a temporary fix to stop this exploit as fast as possible.

Today we had a very long internal discussion about how to proceed
further with this huge problem as well as the server.
The discussion is still going on.

We decided to write this post to inform all our players about what happened.
As always, we are not going to reveal any names.

We are sorry for any inconvenience that this causes.

Yours sincerely,
Lineage II Firebird Administrator

Come and join us in Dion to talk and explore some areas of Aden before we switch to Chronicle 3.

PS: I will post the download link to the C3 client here in the comments on the 3rd of January too.
Hopefully adventurers with slower download speeds can prepare to log in just when the server goes live again.
