Failed p2p. Yet it lasted 7 years before it went f2p? Are you smoking something? It was a really, really well liked game by it's fanbase, which wasn't small, until it went F2P, which even then each of the servers had something like 1700 logged in at all times. Which is enough to run the game at least.

That's funny, I hated the game for the same reason.

But it had a huge following, so a 7 year run = Win in my book. Besides, going F2P doesn't = fail either.

Agreed. The only fail I see is the title of the thread.

  This!  I just don't understand people sometimes!  Although I beta'd the game, and bought it, ultimatly it wasn't what I was looking for.  Doesn't mean it was bad.  Heck - alot of people are obviously still playing :D

Yeah at one time L2 was the largest in the world, even though EQ was biggest in the US.  (Pre-WoW of course)

Lineage 2 will forever go down as one of the most succsesfull mmos in history. This is just pure ignorance.

move to free 2 play was great imo but tried it out but it felt like they allowed you to rush through levels to fast, made it feel like your progress was useless... would stil lplay but i stopped in hopes to come back later since it was almost impossible to do anything cuz thousands of people were crowding the servers

define "failed."  Because I think you might be confused about the definition.

Lineage II has been around for almost a full decade. Ya, complete failure there.

I'm not a fan of the game, but look at how long its been around...yeap, you are smart...that's a fail game.  The problem with the game is the ranger program.  I played it...and ranger can literally do everything for you.  You can even make pvp scripts...so stupid.

Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the priviledge to do so as well.

Another failed thread bringing absolutely nothing of meaning to the genre or subject matter for discussion.

Lineage 2 ran for 8+ years. it didnt fail, it was simply allowed to die in its sleep.
