  • European Community Continues to Grow With Each New Lineage II Update

    A press release was issued this morning that tells us about the expansion of service to the European Lineage II Community. Not only has it expanded, it has doubled!

    Teon, the first server dedicated for European players, was recently moved to Frankfurt from the U.S as part of a larger overall plan to host Lineage II worlds in mainland Europe. By hosting servers in Europe, local players experience increased game performance, a better chance of building clans with same language players and more convenient timings of in-game community events, all of which are core elements to the Lineage II experience.

  • Three Castles and Four Clan Halls

    A press release was issued this morning that highlights the addition of three new castles and four clan halls for Lineage II. Keep readinng to find out more...

    In the chaotic world of Lineage II, clans and alliances vie for control of the land. Clan hall ownership and castle sieges are the pinnacle of the Player versus Player experience. Two new castles and a number of new clan halls have been added to the world in Chronicle 5: Oath of Blood.

    The clan that controls a castle in the lands of Aden and Elmore has a direct influence on the politics and economy in the nearby area. The castle lords demand a tax from all of the residents in the territory, giving the castle-owning clan authority and control of the area. With so much at stake, every castle siege is an epic and thrilling conflict with the clan’s power up for the taking.
