Change is inevitable in any MMO, but in a letter to players Lineage II
Development Director Gon Namkun
acknowledged that not all change is good. As Lineage II
has developed over the years, classes have been added and then changed around and stripped of many of their distinctive characteristics in the name of balance. And NCsoft
wants to bring some of the diversity back to the classes.
Gon Namkun explains the need for diversification and offers four possible solutions. However, instead of just forging ahead with changes, the development team wants player feedback: Players can vote on their preferred method through a poll on the official site
. This poll, open until September 26th, 2012, is specifically for Western players as the Korean market poll has already been completed.
