NCsoft Sued for making Lineage 2 "too addictive"

Yes, i know, its wierd. But its true.

A Lineage 2 player Craig Smallwood sued NCsoft for 3 million, couse they made Lineage 2 too addictive. Smallwood claims that he played the game for 20,000 hours in the last five years (To get the image u need 20,000:1825=~11, so yes, he played for ~11 hours a day for the past 5 years!), so the game clearly ruined 5 years of his life.

A federal judge has allowed the suit to proceed against the South Korean publisher NCsoft. NCsoft has appealed and asked the judge to dismiss the case. This dosint end here, the situation gets more interesting when you consider that Smallwood had his Lineage II accounts banned for alleged grey market RMT activity, although he claims that was a ploy by NCsoft to force players like himself to move over to Aion.

So, is this the end of lineage 2? Who knows.

Wie von NCsoft versprochen wurde heute ein Video über die Zukunft von Aion veröffentlicht. Der Trailer zeigt eine verbesserte Grafik, schwimmende Charaktere mit zugehörigem unterwasser content, Wettersystem (das beste Wettersystem das ich bisher in einem MMO sah), Housing, Mounts und vieles mehr. Jeder Aion fan sollte sich den Trailer auf jedenfall ansehen. YouTube - Aion Vision Trailer (English)
