    All the good ones seem to be gone these days. I was wondering if anyone knew any good ones that are still around. I don't like the 45x servers and they seem to be all that is left (that have a good amount of people playing), I was hoping for something from 1x-15x.

    C4 retail being leaked got NCSoft pissed. FBI took down L2Extreme, and threatened to go after the other US ones. They all got scared.

    Good luck finding a halfway decent server in the US or Canada.

    I dont understand how they had a right to seize the website, they must of made a deal of some kind.

    They werent distributing software illegally, as the website states.

    They did not have a right to the server software. Also, L2Ex dev's were distributing parts of the retail C4 pack hosted off of the website in several server admin communities, though it is debatable as to whether or not this was actually known.

    Bnetd, et al, actually have interesting cases and large grey areas surrounding them, yet it was still ruled as copyright infringement. There is no such grey area in the use of leaked official server files. NCSoft let it be when there was just C1 servers around, running like junk. The C4 servers, however, were quickly becoming up to par with retail.

    In the end, NCSoft made a fairly smart business decision with lobbying for legal help. Many of the people I played L2 with on private servers have moved over to retail - people that would have continued playing privately for forever, if given the opportunity.

    i'd play retail, but i don't have time for the grind. and i'm not gonna pay for the first few months just so i can bot to high level. :(

    I'm on supremel2 (http://www.supremel2.com/welcome.php) right now. The team behind this has really impressed me, they are great coders and very involved in the community. They are constantly working to make things at the chronicle 5 level and have gotten a good amount implemented (zariche, etc.). I'm on nanaki with a dorf and a DE. Maybe we can get a clan going, though I don't want to lead it, I'm casual at best with this game atm

    This will be a very nice server when it is finally out. They shut it down voluntarily when the big scare with l2extreem getting raided by the fbi hit but came up a while later then decided to create their own emulator instead of using l2j or l2a and it has been progressing nicely.

    The server is currently in beta and will be full CT1 with all features from live fully working, rates will be less than 7x and probably 5ish. the server hardware and software will be able to hold a very high number of players(thousands). they will accept donations but will not be selling armor/weapons/scrolls or any of that sort of thing that would give you an advantage as a donator.

    If you sign up on the forums consider putting me as a referer(theres no benefit for me, I have just been telling everyone to put me as a referer).

    Ken is a gigantic douchebag, and has been since the original L2P. I was in an IRC channel with a guild that had moved to a different server because of his stupid shit, and made a comment about him doing something dumb, which someone mentioned in the L2P IRC. He then came in the channel, and started ethugging me, and threatening to come to my house and beat me up :rofl:
