After NCsoft solicited the Lineage II playerbase last month about whether or not it wanted a classic server in Europe, the community has answered with a resounding “Yes please!” The studio said that far more than the required 15,000 signatures on a classic server petition were submitted, triggering the official go-ahead for the project.
NCsoft gave a broad overview of what will happen now that this has got the greenlight: “We’ve started working towards opening the server. As you can imagine, it involves a lot of preparation, discussion, testing and other complicated stuff which we cannot talk about in detail. There is still a risk that the project won’t be launched if the circumstances are not in our favour. We appreciate your efforts and your involvement in this project. You’ve shown your desire to see Lineage II Classic in Europe, and it means a lot for us. ”
