The proposals were the following:
- More experience at least in the weekends
- More monster drops
- More adena drops
- More marketing campaign
- Make it Free-to-Play
- Unite both the Aria and Blackbird servers
"Deal with the Crit Errors first!"
I guess everyone who's been playing L2 SEA since the Kamael update has gotten Critical Errors while playing.
One of the worst time for this to happen was when I was ganged up by mobs. There I was grinding and doing a massacre on yellow-labeled mobs, when the crit error appeared on my screen. I got so pissed off and worried at the same time: did my character survive? Luckily, I was spending time grinding, what if it happened on a PVP event?
None of the suggestions above would be successful if the product (in this case the game) is not functioning right. I was expecting that with the previous patch and the Community Manager's post on updating the PC's drivers would at least lessen the Crit Errors, but it seems that nothing has changed. This happened even in places where I was running alone in a field! Whether you have a high end PC or not, Crit Errors remain a staple of this game.
I'm really hoping that they would do something about this.

Now with news on the partnering of NCSoft and Vivox (one of the world's best providers of voice chat for online games like World of Warcraft, and Second Life), looks like that reality may come in the near future.
Through this partnership, the NCsoft player community will enjoy market-leading voice chat from Vivox. Players will have the ability to communicate with scalable, full featured voice within and across NCsoft games via an NCsoft branded game communication portal. Vivox will also deliver advanced features such as voice fonts, voice mail and in-and-out of game communication via regular phones and text messages.However, the question will be, is that, will this be implemented in Lineage 2 SEA or will it be included in future NCSoft games like Aion? I'm hoping that it will come here soon, but most likely, they'll try it out at the NA and Korea servers first. It'll be up to AMDG and iPlayAsia to push the envelope and request that we be included as soon as possible.

You can hardly see me in the screenshot with all these sellers here!
I'm not saying that selling is bad, it's actually good for the game's economy, it's just that the place has totally lost its significance as a racing track. It's now become a flea market. There were proposals in the forums that a real market place be set up where traders and buyers can go to. Unfortunately, the reason why this place is such a hit for the traders is that you can teleport here for free.
I suggest that a market place be set up in a town somewhere where every trader can ply their wares. Of course, it means that the teleport there should be free because it'll be useless if you spend adena just to go there. It's like a mall's parking place, it has to be free so the consumers can buy more stuff.
I know that some AMDG or iPlayAsia people read this so I hope my suggestion will be heard.

It's called the Treasure Box event. Basically, it's like the letters event multiplied by six. There are 6 colored stones that you need to collect from treasure chests. However, these chests are locked and the keys need to be collected from monster drops. PLUS you still need to get other hard-to-get items.
Personal note: Although I do appreciate AMDG and iPlayAsia giving us these in-game events, I would like to suggest that they figure out first, what kind of prizes the players would like. For example, I'm not sure how many players out there would like to wear a Piggy Hat nor a Teddy Bear Hat.
If you haven't seen them before, here's how they'll look like on you:
Teddy Bear Hat
Thanks to l2info.arktic.net for the pics.
I do hope I'm not pissing off anyone from iPlayAsia nor AMDG because of this.
More details here!

I joined yesterday and here's my slogan:
"Grinding was never this fun!"
Here are the prizes:
Lineage II Sporty Jacket with Hood (Black)
Lineage II Metal Engraved Pendant
Formal Wear (In-Game Prize)
1st Runner Up
Lineage II Backpack
Lineage II Cap
Strider of Wind (In-Game Prize)
2nd Runner Up
Lineage II Long Sleeves
Lineage II Cell Phone Accessory
Weapon Enchant Scrolls A (In-Game Character Prize)
10 Consolation Prizes
High Grade Life Stones - Level 67
Personal comment on the prizesAlthough the Top Winner Prize may seem to be more expensive than the rest, I would rather go for the 1st Runner Up. Why? Just take a look below:
What does it do? So far I haven't seen anything that adds anything to your character's stats. It's basically a fashion add on.
What does it do? You get to ride it across town. Makes you look cooler even without any kind of armor.
So what looks cooler? I choose the Wind Strider!

It comes as a surprise that someone in the Lineage 2 SEA community was good-hearted enough to lend me his strongest D-class armor,weapons, and SSDs. He would rather stay anonymous and just say that he's from Clan HimitsuHeiki (translated: Secret Weapon).
To this bad-ass looking dark elf:
Now, I'm no longer afraid of gankers (well, those who are level 25 and below that is...) and high level aggro monsters.
I also received the Angelo Halo that came in with the boxed set last Tuesday night. Here's what I look like:
Yep, it would've looked way cooler on an elf or human. Dwarves and orcs should stay away from this fashion accessory. So what I did is I gave it away to the person who lent me his stuff. He looked way cooler wearing it anyway.
Thanks again! You know who you are!
