First of all i think the new rules are confusing and unclear for new players. Most people that playing at private servers are used to simple rules, like “so many clients per PC”. Its easy to remember, especially since the server has a protection that won’t allow more than 2 windows per machine.

The “2 characters per IP” rule is hard to manage and confusing. There are players that never visit the forums and there are situations with people that log randomly from net cafes. You simply can’t know if there is another player in the same net cafe that plays on the server. If there is, the GM will simply see 4,6,8 boxes per IP and so on. So basically that means that everyone who plays from a public network must report to this topic, just in case, to avoid future bans. And if you happen to visit a net cafe once, you have to report to this topic anyway, just to be sure. It’s complicated to use a forum topic for a game server.

This might seems manageable for a 500-people server, but what if the server grow to something like 1500-2000 players? The “voice interview” will be a bad idea and you will have to change the rules again. I say, if the GMs can see the MAC addresses for every character, then keep it simple to something like: 2 characters per PC.

For the topic now:
1. I have situations where i give an extra support character to a friend when he comes over. So i have to report it, just in case. At these situations we are using 2 PCs and its something like “2 players, 3 total windows”.

2. So the active chars for these situations only (raids, sieges, other events) will be: MpiftekiaGemista / Kotosoufle

I have no idea what the L2 Dawn’s voice channel is. But I can provide Teamspeak server details or simply skype.

Hello! I have private messaged you guys before but as for a new clarification here we go!

I am player "Meadows" in game, I have 2 other people who play with me most often here at my house. 1 of those people is my brother "Brotherfox", and also my good friend "M0rrisw0ndo0d" those are our main accounts in the game. We all have 1 box player who we use regularly. Those characters are; "Sisterfox, jpnelli, and Frotherbox" we also have several other accounts for the purpose of use in town which I can list, but will list if only necessary. The characters above would be the usual lineup we will play with. Most weekends we are all together at my home so we could participate in a live chat if need be. Again, thank you so much for providing the greatest lineage experience and let us know how we can better follow the server rules. Thanks a lot ! - jpnelli "Meadows"

Still can't understand. The rule was 2 boxes per 1 person, and now the rule is only one box/person?
And what abt offline traders? If I have an offline trader, I will have to login with it in 2nd box anyway just to transfer stuff, money or whatever to the main char. Is this will be the rule violation?
Anyway, my wife and me have 4 accts, I have 2 chars, she has one, and 1 common trader. What should we do? I dont want to write chars' names to here, ready to write in PM to admins.
This rule based on checking IPs and voice interview makes a mess, IMHO. And what abt newcomers? They will not understand such complicated rules and leave this server for good without playing.
Why don't you guys just release a patch which will check MAC of a machine and will not allow 1 or 2 boxes per machine or anything. Can't imagine a guy who's playing 2 machines at the same time.

Strimex, the staff tries to limit 2 online accounts per person and not per pc and Yes there are guys who are playing 2 machines at the same time. You only have to mention the chars that you and your wife will be playing actively. Of course this measure doesn't include offline shops. To my mind, having a second ip can give you an extra 3 offline shops without having to notify the gms cause you won't be playing them actively. If I am wrong, please correct me.

I would like to ask at this point: what if during the online voice discussion a person who uses two machines brings a friend/relative who doesn't play on this server, to state that he/she is using the 2/4 online accounts from the same ip. Will the white-listed players never been checked again? Or will this possibility be limited to reported cases from other players in the future?

The policy is the old-same. The rules have not changed. MAC checking is already in place, not allowing more than 1 account + 1 box per pc. But as mrbobe mentioned there are people with more than 2 pcs. If we applied the rule of max 2 accounts per ip we would punish people that honestly play with their friends/ family. Hence, the 10 min voice convo. Offline shop is a separate system that functions on its' own and is not influenced by this.

To make summary, as I understand, only 2 online simultaneous accounts are allowed per IP, doesnt matter 1 PC is in use or 2. No need in voice conversation.
To get permission for more than 2 online accounts per IP players must have voice conversation with you, 2 online accounts per 1 player. OK.
But this is the matter. Dishonest player can easily use VPN and start as much boxes as he can. And I do agree with mrbobe that dishonest player can invite a friend or girlfriend who doesn't play the game.

that's what I've been saying for a couple of days. These filters are just pointless and you will end up getting rid of this rule at some point. Right now if I want I can log each of my 6 or 7 characters and you will never know. Plus not to mention the ridiculous excuses I'm reading in this thread for be allowed to multibox (Mpiftekia *cough* *cough*)
