[vc_row][vc_column][nk_accordion][nk_accordion_tab title=”What does “4r4m“ mean?”][nk_text]Long story short, my name is Aram and it is pretty hard to make a character or account with a short name. Once, I was thinking about something new and I want to be sure that a new nickname will be available, I’d replacing both “A” letters to “4” digits. TAnd it’s work! That nickname have been available in almost all services and games.

Bay the way, this website logo image use Korean letters (니 ㄱ 니 ㅆ) to build 4r4m![/nk_text][/nk_accordion_tab][nk_accordion_tab title=”How to play in Korea?”][nk_text]First of all, if you are not South Korea citizen, there no legal way to play in any NCKorea PC game.

To make NCKorea account (for PC games) you should verify your personal identity via I-Pin or OTP system (similar to SMS pin in western counties). Those systems work only in South Korea. Plus at any moment NC can ask you to pass re-verification process in case of suspicious activity. Basically, they may ban any foreign account if they want because it’s a part of Terms of Use / User Agreements rule.
Also, you should use Korean language (Hangul) to sending tickets to NC’s support team or talk with Korean players in the chat. For example, the macro system in L2 based on Hangul as well, so there’s no /target, but /타겟.

Here more. All payments (in L2sotre as well) can be processed with domestic Korean banks or services only. So no global VISA or MasterCard, no PayPal and etc. Last, but not least. The PING! Just imagine an online game with 200 ping. For PvE it can be ok, but in PvP anyone with 2-50 ping won’t give you a chance.

I personally play with accounts of my Korean friends. I can’t recommend any guide or service because I didn’t use them.[/nk_text][/nk_accordion_tab][nk_accordion_tab title=”Where did you play in Lineage 2?”][nk_text]I’ve started playing Lineage 2 in 2006 in a local Russian private server with C3 chronicles (then C4 and Interlude) and x1 rates. After launching official servers in Russia, at the end of 2008, I’d started there at Blackbird server.
Then in 2014, the team where I’d played are quit and I left the project for a while. I’ve tried a few other MMOPRGs which is available in Russia. Then I tried to play in Europe (Shillien / Ramona), but in the end, I didn’t find anything more enjoyable than making videos for my YouTube channel. At that time, there was a lack of information about Lineage 2 updates and my research led me to the Korean region. I find out the updates come out in Korea, often in the form of weekly patches, and then packing to overseas regions. While I doing my researches I’ve find friendly Korean player, who later gave me an account and helped me with tons of questions. With his support, I started playing in Korea and learning Hangul and Korean culture.
After second servers merge in Russia (Blackbird + Ramsheart) I found a new team and until the end of 2016 I was playing in Russian again. Then, at the end of 2016 my team quit and I’d try a few mobile projects (Lineage 2 Revolution and Lineage M). During this time, the community on YouTube and discord has grown up, and at some point, I became more a Youtuber/Bloger than an active hardcore player.[/nk_text][/nk_accordion_tab][nk_accordion_tab title=”PC specs”][nk_text]CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K 3,5 GHz разогнан до 3,9 GHz (Ivy Bridge)

Not perfect setup even for L2.[/nk_text][/nk_accordion_tab][nk_accordion_tab title=”Do you know Korean / Where did you learn Korean?”][nk_text]My Korean level is somewhere at the first topic. I read pretty well and I can type, but even a simple conversation is difficult for me and my pronunciation is terrible (I did not practice in it at all). I use to learn Korean TTMK website https://talktomeinkorean.com/ and https://www.howtostudykorean.com/. Also hours of watching  YT videos and searching the Internet for some slang things that are difficult for a foreigner. This is enough for me to understand what is happening in the game, even if there are no English-speaking or Russian-speaking interface analogs. In addition, our community questions and Korean mobile games give me a lot of practice.[/nk_text][/nk_accordion_tab][/nk_accordion][/vc_column][/vc_row]
