[L2j] L2j Server Important Changes! [UPDATED!]

Post by ThePhoenixBird » Thu Apr 01, 2010 12:27 am

:!: All of this was a joke - Todo fue una broma - все это была шутка - All dies war ein Scherz :!:

Well, well, well... i hope you all had fun like we did we laughed our asses off really hard, this was our April Fools Joke, all the licences stuff is just a small "white lie" that we prepared minuciously to shock you all.

We were going to reveal the truth on 2nd but since the huge impact that it caused and the large amount of rage/funny/emo/suicide comments both on website and forums we held up the joke for a couple of extra days to see you all freaking out for the sake of pure evilness.

Just like someone already said, all the jokes have a bit of truth on them, think about it for a while and then forget it, dont get too serious, but think that all our work we do here is for FREE and it will be FREE FOREVER, and for ALL OF YOU, not for us, since many of the current developers working on the official L2j staff dont run a server, many of them do it just for "fun" and/or "learning" purposes like me.

Im going to quote the most funny comments made:

I was a very active developer in L2OFF community and just leave because they all acted the same way that you are doing it now.
You can make a $ 50 annual subscription and I am sure you will earn more money as they will be many more people that can pay and still use this project.
You are killing the L2J project!!!
I want to know who is the “Superstar” who planned this shit….
Welcome L2J to the L2OFF disease.

You become into crazy… but also you’re free to do what you want.
Why, you don’t ask for work? I mean, if you give, you can take.
You complain about everybody take it and no one cares (your words) a shit, but that solution you show up, has not happy ending.
I will be watching to see where it goes.

And you can suck his lollipop. GNU license is for saving author works. If you are leecher, you can copy last revision and gtfo, with creating new project thats name “l2jleech” or something like this.

Yeah! Say bye bye lolservers. ^^

If you want to read the rest of them check the entry on the website and this post.

Notes: Just for the curious ones ranting and claiming that selling a paid L2j version violates the GPL, please read. As long we distribute the source code with the compiled binaries, you dont violate the GPL, the issue is that the same GPL let you distribute, modify, and sell the copy that you just bought, so you can't effectively sell a "license" under the GPL. :wink:

ThePhoenixBird wrote: Hi there guys, today is a really important day here on L2j, we have been discussing for weeks about the future of L2j, where are we now?, what are we going to do? and where we want to be?

On the other side we also discussed about the amount of people that doesnt care a shit about our work, and they keep leeching, stealing, and flaming us, some have the guts to ask on forums how to remove the credits! others come to IRC and spam the ops with messages to get "priority support cuz i donated you $5!", other ones more silent just come here, read, pick, download, and just stay silent leeching our hard work and yours too, they dont give nothing back to the community.

At the end we got tired to list bad stuff and then we started to brainstorm for solutions to this issue and the future of L2j.

The wonderful idea came when it was suggested to create a "paid" L2j version, with proper priority support and addons, also nBd aggred to share his private custom events for this new version.

Of couse, for the rest of the users they still can get the vanilla L2j version, but future OpenSource Development will be stoped starting on Rev.4100, there will be only security patches from now on for the "free" branch, no new development or features will be added to the vanilla version wich will stay opensource for the rest of you to keep using it or developing it.

From now on the current L2j DevTeam will focus on developing for the "paid" version of L2j with the new features and addons (we have prepared some awesome ones), you then should consider to buy a L2j License:


Image
Standard License
Price: USD$ 149,99/year
  • Limited to 1 server with 100 users capacity.
  • Priority Support via email/irc.
  • Priority Beta-Releases.
  • 0-Day Bug Fixes.
  • Free Upgrades

Image
Gold License
Price: USD$ 349,99/year
  • Limited to 2 servers with 300 users capacity per server.
  • Priority Support via email/irc.
  • Priority Beta-Releases.
  • 0-Day Bug Fixes.
  • Free Upgrades
  • Builds with Custom MODs.
  • Priority Support for Custom MODs.

Image
Extreme License
Price: USD$ 749,99/year
  • Limited to 3 servers with 1000 users capacity per server.
  • Priority Support via email/irc.
  • Priority Beta-Releases.
  • 0-Day Bug Fixes.
  • Free Upgrades
  • Builds with Custom MODs.
  • Priority Support for Custom MODs.
  • nBd's Premium Custom MODs.
  • DrHouse's Admin/GameMaster Custom Panel MOD.
  • ThePhoenixBird's Designed 125x125 Banner in L2jServer Homepage.
We consider that those prices are cheap in echange for the amount of work and development that its required to stay competitive on this business.

The money from the licences will be used completely for our new L2j Developer Motivation Program wich will ensure quality work from our group of L2j Developers and for future development of new features.

Regards
L2j Team

Well, I am here since 2006. 4 years until now. I know people like Sami and other guys from before. So...
We have 2 servers with many players - 200 may be and I haven't 600-700 buck to pay.
So, keep your work and I wish you to get so much money.


Good bye

Supporting the decision of how much you can already do for free? Some are server and they get Donat have never helped l2jserver.
And those who think that this is a joke then you are mistaken - it is wicked fun with the elements of brutal truth.

If some developers are "worried" about lose code then maybe must be stopping sharing his code, we dont need their "nice" contributions, there are a lot of people, instead closing development to own interesests. And you need more money true?

I will publish L2J is dead im all my websites.

Good luck, Is my last post here because I love my posts numbers.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ give me money give me money $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$



DrHouse, bye friend you are great, I miss you

HAHAHA! Here we go, emo rage quit.

If this was going to happens, L2J wouldn't die for sure. In fact, it would boost it up. A lot, yes, A LOT of people don't like to share the stuff they work on to the community because of the large amount of people that just suck things up. These people not sharing ends up as leechers too, because of other leechers unfortunately. But heh, that's the curse of open source projects, there's nothing we can do about it.

The only thing that would die is the lame-asses servers where server owners can't even code an hello world. Pretty sure you feel concerned.

Piss and love.

Everyone, shut up...


Is it an aprils fool joke or not :s?



Because it's really tempting to get the Extreme License, however it's kinda expensive, and I dont understand the thing with the 1000 user limited stuff.


O_O is this all a joke or serious ^^ ?
