The US Version of Lineage never got the resources and work (ak Love) from NC-Soft Korea it would have needed to get successful here. When the game was shut down, the client and server was in a outdated state.
However the server code for Lineage is now been around for quite some time and is maintained by a team of developers. While there are a lot so called free servers that run their own modified version of the game, there is one server that matches the original US Ruleset.
It is the Westknight Server.
Westknight is an old Pledge from the former live server Ken Rauhel. They offer a free to play version of Lineage that is definitely worth a look. Some of the most noteworthy features are:
- reliable server. This server is now up and running for over 4 years.
- real look and feel of Lineage (No absurde modifications or customizations like a Grim Reaper Class or CrackDK)
- newest Client. Yes, that means in game maps, higher resolution, window mode and a lot, lot more cool features.
- regular unique events (That includes GM controlled Boss event too.)
- friendly and cooperate community (If you happen to play live you will meet a lot known names. Lot Ken folks.)
- no hackers (this is a private server - justice comes swift here)
- adjusted basic rules for xp, drops, karma, etc. Means way less grind without ruining the game. It really goes well if you play casual or full time.
