Netmarble is the fastest growing mobile gaming company in the world right now. Lineage 2: Revolution has been their bread and butter recently. The game is a free to download MMORPG, for your phone or tablet. They have had a HUGE marketing effort put forth. You may have seen one of their many video ads on Facebook featuring Conan O'Brien. Netmarble also had an impressive booth at TwitchCon 2017. Hosting tournaments commentated by Day and others.
Lineage 2 is getting some special treatment this week. The update includes the much anticipated Fortress Siege, Open Siege, as well as three new servers opening. Additional updates include The Fortress Conquer Shop and more gameplay improvements.
Held every Friday from 20:30 – 21:00 PST will allow players to enter a real-time, massive PvP battle between two clans. Up to 100 players, 50 in each clan, will enter the siege in attempt to be the first to “imprint” onto their opponents’ Holy Artifact and be crowned the winner. Clans that wish to participate must first successfully bid on a desired fortress, and then enter the battle against the clan that’s defending the fortress. Bidding for the fortresses is held every Thursday from 00:00 - 19:00 PST. All participants, regardless of outcome, will win Adena, EXP, and Proof of Blood, and the winning clan will win bonus rewards, including red diamonds and buffs for the in-game characters and freshly won fortress.
Held every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 20:30 – 21:00 PST invites players above level 11 to participate in this smaller scale 30v.30 battle which gives newcomers a taste of the grander Fortress Siege. All participants will have equal combat power and level, but are given the choice of any class and race in the Open Siege. Players can enter on their own, or for a party up to five. Similar to Fortress Siege, the team that “imprints” on their opponent’s Holy Artifacts wins. Players receive rewards based on the results of the match or their personal contribution.
In celebration of the update, the schedule for Open Siege will be adjusted for the first week of the update: A total of five Open Siege will be held – Wednesday (December 13) and Saturday (December 16) on the first week, and Tuesday (December 19), Thursday (December 21), and Saturday (December 23) on the second week. Schedule will resume to every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from the following week. (Schedule is subject to change with notice).
Along with the major content update, three new servers, including Kruma 05, Kenrauhel 07, and Deforge 06 will be opened in North America and Europe in an effort to enhance server traffic in existing servers. New players to the game can now join the new server to enjoy the game seamlessly and challenge for the top ranks.
