Lineage II Account Services Interview with Tim Tan

You can change your gender...without an operation!
You can change your gender...without an operation!

For those players that are absolutely dedicated to their favorite MMOG, they often make a name and a reputation for themselves on their particular server. Whether it's through their leveling skills or their abilities in PvP, the other gamers on their server may either respect or despise them. So when the Lineage II development staff announced that they were going to be offering account services that allowed people to change their genders, names, and even transfer servers, gamers were incredibly interested in how this was going to work. The Ten Ton Hammer staff caught up with Lineage II's producer, Tim Tan, to get to the bottom of these details.

In general, we wanted to bring these account services live because they were features that the players were asking for. The three services that we are talking about are character name changes, character gender change, and character server transfers. With character name and gender change being implemented first, we've already made those services live and are giving players the opportunity to implement these in the game.
