LC USA just got an awesome update, where leveling from 1 to 140 became A LOT easier.
Remember when you got stuck at lv 90, when all of a sudden you needed 10b to lvl ? Well, now you only need 6b. Lv 91 20b to level ? No way, nearly 7b now!
Check the exp curve out:
Plus, sping has become really easy with new Juno, Temple of Forgetfulness, Akan, backpack and veteran's quests and the Vladimir mobs and bosses.
The game needs it's players back. I've been playing those private servers aswell, but I don't think they are any better than the current original version of the game. GMs and GSs are doing their best to keep the game alive, and in my opinion, it's time to respond. All we need now is a better PvP system and some graphical improvements, which, according to a GM, is already being worked on!
Wish you all come back and repopulate!
