i agree with you on the town buffers, also i wouldn’t hate to see them last one hour, because really what does it matter, some areas to get to take atleast 10 to 15 mins to get to anyway after fighting through all the mobs/running.
As far as the full song and dances, i dont agree with. This server from my understanding is supposed to be old school, and old school L2 if you look back at videos you will see a ton of prophets/sws/bd/SE running around battlefields making them a necessary class. You give everyone free full buffs and now those classes become useless.
In closing i think you make some valid points, but you give everyone free full buffs we are just making things to easy for people.
