  1. If one person has to go essencetapping and aethertapping and morphing and crafting all just to get potions... while you can simply buy potions, scrolls, armor and go straight to pvp that is a problematic p2w by most people. Who wins? The guy who spent his whole day trying to craft the basics and ending up still having little to nothing or the guy who is already geared and has enjoyed everything end game and is ready to buy even more when needed? When there is a good manastone and you can't afford it, he already bought that. If you manage to earn 1 million, he already purchased 100 m

  2. ...and it was never made to have some people purposely staying low level and hunt ungeared people. Yes yes, we heard you were not one of them, the vast majority was, and even if there were only a few that did it, then one griefer was enough to kill 100 ungeared players within an hour hurting the game. The reason why FTS was implemented was to address GRIEFERS that hurt the low level aspect of the game and an important part of it which was rifting. FTS pretty much saved rifting because rifting could still exist without hurting anyone that was too ungeared to participate while rift-lovers c

  3. Twinks are griefers. Period. If you are defending twinks, then you are one of them. There is no other way around it. It's right there to see as Arhangelos already pointed out a dozen times here. Twinkis rifted to Morheim/Eltnem to grief undergeared players leveling. That's all there was to it. Now I can understand people that stay at level 40 to farm AP in the abyss on guards. That's easy PVP gear. But griefing lowbies... come on? Get better. FTS implemented = twinks quit. Why? Because all the people dying in 2 hits for them moved to the FTS to be able to level in peace. F&ck twinks. Yo

  4. ...the whole point is that the vast majority of people see it differently. If you are the one who accepts being the punch bag because the game allows for people to pay for their victory then you are a tiny minority. When you try hard to do something and you are always last, or fail, or get stomped, you feel something is wrong. Maybe not you, but the player base does. Nobody will give you a medal for being legit and/or no p2w and you did it all the hard way. Nobody is going to acknowledge you for that. Nobody plays the game to be a walking dummy for the rich kid. Maybe 1 or 2 peo

  5. When you are trying to persuade us that Aion died because of "xx is the problem" when most players say "zz is the problem" then that is bs. So many people try to prove to us that Aion Classic is good, yet it dies, that is gaslighting with irrelevant things. Nobody asked people if they still enjoy Aion Classic of course there are those who still like it. Most players quit and they have already said why they quit. If you haven't quit already or about to quit, you do not get to say why others quit, they were here and they said the reasons. WHAT? HAHAHA I swear to god many of my friends ca

  6. The only role FTS could play in rifting was a positive one, yes you heard correctly, it could have never been negative to rifting BY ANY MEANS. Rifting was supposed to be about those that want to rift, those that didn't want to rift were forced by rifters to participate in something they couldn't win forcing them to quit the game. When a player quits the game because of a feature, that feature is a bad one. One single grifers could have made tenths of people quit. FTS literally gave the players a choice, go to the main maps if you want to rift, go to FTS if you want to level peaceful

  7. I assume that person meant "most people" is the 90% of the player base that quit silently without making any posts. So let me get this straight, twinks wanted to fight other twinks and high levels only, and NOT grief levelers. Well FTS was only for levelers (those people you apparently didn't want to grief remember?), twinks and high levels were still doing their thing if they wanted to. If anyone quit because of FTS then it means FTS took away their pray, which was the un-geared levelers that never wanted to participate in pvp vs over-geared twinks. I am still shocked anyone st

  9. Before they made the FTS server they implemented specific days where you had an insane passive buff in your faction's leveling maps and enemies could barely scratch you. And that was to address the twinking problem. The buff could destroy rifting for those that enjoyed it, because you cannot have one map to facilitate everyone. If someone wanted to rift they should be able to do it every day. So FTS came right after that with the best solution ever. One server fully open world pvp and riftable for those (hundreds according to you) that enjoy it. And another server for those t

  10. Generilizing about the twinks? No, you generalize about the FTS and how it affected twinking and rifting. IF FTS made rifting die it means one thing... people disliked rifting because they opted out. If hundreds of people enjoyed rifting, then rifting should have never died. The only people absent from the normal servers were the easy pray you never wanted to attack. FTS literally could have made the twinks point valid, it should come with the quote: "Finally... twinks can do their thing without being accused of griefing while they enjoy killing whoever they see on main maps now beca

  11. They probably think that people will return, if they remove the candy and Daeva pass P2W, if they ban all the AP traders, the people who got falsely banned due to SR, the people who got caught up with the AP traders, the people who quit once they took 4months to go from 1.2 to 1.5. A noble idea, but sadly Classic had 1 chance and they blew it big time. Its quite breathtaking, at every single move they have made they made a fatal error and you do not recover from fatal errors, not even if you reboot. I hope whoever was in charge of this entire mess has been sacked, but the reality is

  12. And forums need a split immediately. I click on "unread content" and I keep reading about awful drop rates on classic. They should at least have a prefix to every unread post about whether it is classic or retail, or give us a tick box options to opt out from the content that is irrelevant to us. And all that because I don't expect them to dedicate another site and forum for the two versions. Just an option box would do.

  13. I agree mostly with @Arhangelos recent posts but I can't follow all posts it's too much to read sorry 😛 I would like to address one thing about leveling slow that even no one give you any credit for that but you actually learned how to play the class and know your class skills that's the biggest reward for leveling slow. This is something that can't be brought unfortunately p2w tainted your effort knowing your class. For anyone who like p2w ,remember this any games that you can p2w with open world pvp will die like this one. You can p2w as much as you want but all your investments wi

  14. It's dead if you aren't having fun and that fits your narrative. It's not dead if you're having fun and enjoying it, which I am. I understand frustration, but there's enough of it in real life, I don't let it permeate my leisure and free time. All games die, and players move on. I've enjoyed them all ... Aion, Rift, Tera, GWII, SWTOR, Neverwinter, Archeage, BDO, Revelation. Aion was my first love and I'm still having fun, so I don't let the noise effect that. Truth is, on Siel, I don't have any issues running content. I can get in Dredge at anytime during the 2 hour window. Forgot

  15. What @Stormwing and @Arhangelos have written pretty much explains why Aion is dead, the others are gaslighting and providing excuses trying to shitpost the conversation to a different topic every post. If people do not like the game they will quit, and this is what happened to Aion.

  18. You do not have to be offensive, when people start Aion they start it as an MMORPG, WoW is an MMORPG too and it is different, people will not go around asking people "is Aion good" because that will give them a false image, if they asked you, you would have said that "Aion is amazing" because apparently you like the goal it has. People will have to start a game and see what it is with their own eyes, when someone tried to play the game and gets ganged 10 times after getting out of town, that is where they stop the game. It is not new player friendly, it is not pve-content friendly and the

  21. I kept my empyrean boxes from Lugbug daily and weekly unopened until I had at least 50 (last day I had 49 but I got 2x that day due to taking the weekly as well) I got 136 fragments in total. We get 1 box every day from lugbug daily and 1 every week from lugbug weekly so that is 8 boxes per week. This is about 1.142857143 boxes per day and need 500 fragments, so 500/2.667 = 187,5 boxes which is about 164 days or about 5,5 months for the fragments. We also need 6 Ultimate Breath of transformations from BCM in total, we get 1 for free every start of every month. Of course we also

  22. Not sure how exactly it will be implemented but finally they are listening. It looks like it will have a section for every type of items, with many more options per item and also as I can see it uses luna. I do not know how the slots opens and what will the requirements be yet as I haven't found the information. In any case it will have more slots than the current Luna Wardrobe and that is what we have been asking. I specifically said a wardrobe with 1000 slots would serve me .

  25. Well, let us be open minded and put it to a quick test by googling it, to get other opinions about the topic from 2009/2010 (and others). Here are some quotes: if you make one you can find people lvling up in elthen/morheim. but beluslan and heiron? forget it they won't give a damn if you are twinky they will zerg you without any doubt 😜 Eltnen and Morheim rifting twinks cause so much grief and forum rage. Right now while a majority of players are still under L40, twink L30s can rampage through them for massive AP gain. There is a legion on the server I play on de

  26. You have your distorted experience as a twink, I have my experience as someone who was constantly griefed by said "we lookin for other twinks or 50's" aka "twink pvprs". I bet you the vast majority feels the same as I did, hence why twinking died. I would get upset for a few mins, but it didn't bothered me more than I enjoyed the other aspects of the game, but a lot, and I mean it, a lot of my friends quit due to twinks constantly griefing them to the point they couldn't even quest for hours. But hey, you know better, right!?

  27. It's a real shame. I was holding out hope that Aion Classic would take off successfully and thrive. But reading through all the posts here, and some valid points made, bring me to one conclusion. Aion Classic is far from perfect - NCWest has a history of crash 'n burns, no doubt about that. But anyone who has done any gaming and has an IQ above room temperature knows that a toxic game community will commit suicide 9 chances out of 10. Is that why people are leaving in droves? Not entirely, no. But it sure doesn't help when the gameplay is struggling for air. I'm not suggesting that we all

  28. @Arhangelos: There are points the community could change. Like being less toxic; acting less greedy; do less grieving. However, from what I learnt in this topic that is how the game is supposed to be played. I am not going to join the p2w disussion, but I want to point out that the reasons why retail failed are not the necessarily the reasons why classic fails. It seems to get confused alot.

  29. The XP event will help levelers for sure. I hope server mergers come at the end of Daeva Pass. 100% XP boost combined with the FT and DC repeatables ... it would be hard not to get to 50 during this event if you play somewhat regularly. I have a 50 Ranger, but I'm bringing up a 32 Sorcerer, so this will be much appreciated.

If there was a no p2w server it would have been more alive but there would be p2w people who wouldn't play it because they want a cash shop. But understanding that a non p2w server would have been more alive is a general knowledge even p2w people would know this even those who wouldn't play on it would know that. Many people like brutal offensive pvp, MOST people don't. If they implemented Fast Track Server it would have been full. If there was a pve only Aion many peop

  33. Now you are being monolithic again. Understanding what people want is not contradiction. This is why you cannot understand why Aion died, because you think only the way you like Aion and you call it "good". ~~ Plenty of people asked for Classic, I never did but when the time came for it I knew it would be more alive than retail because retail went full head to the wall at the time they announced classic. And I was right: Classic exists It is more alive than retail I am not playing Classic at all because I never asked for it because I do not like the very early game m

  35. I agree with @Arhangelos on most of his points. Also I believe that a PvE only server would have a higher population and a PvE oriented version of Aion even more. There are a bunch of people constantly shouting about great PvP and how great ganking is, yet just shouting out loud does not make it correct. Furthermore, people have very different defintions of PvP. I would not want to play on such a server which the current Aion but I certainly believe in its potential. @66sB2F50: You do not make yourself look smarter by making silly posts.

I corrected your sentence because that is what Aion beautiful for you. Apparently this is what made Aion bad for many others and this is why Aion died. I know many people who quit Aion because of the open world pvp was too much for them when they tried to enjoy the game doing the basic stuff. You can't just throw someone into the pvp scheme while they just started and wear nothing when there is a player that plays for months and ha

  38. Last time I check, server capacity was 9000, that is the 100%. Also, I can tell numbers at the beginning. On first day, Siel reached 57%, Israphel around 22%. That is, 5100 players on Siel + 1700 on Israphel = 6800 players. Today, november 8, we have (at peak) 13% on Siel, 4% on Israphel. That is, 1170 players on Siel, 360 on Israphel = 1530 players. That means a 77.5% reduction in the active playerbase since launch.

  39. The game is fun. Different than original iteration in 2009? Sure, but still fun. It's easy to get Lannok, DP, DC and Dredge groups on Siel ... lots of players in Primum. I'll keep playing until it's not fun any longer. Hopefully, that's a long time from now. Looking forward to 1.7, 1.9 and 2.0. 2.0 was one of the greatest patches in Aion. Maybe you had unrealistic expectations for the game and wanted it to be something that it's not. Fair enough, that's valid. But it's a video game, it's leisure and recreational time, we play it by choice. Not having fun? No worries, lots of ga

  40. Agreed. They made exactly the same mistakes this time they did last time. I guess they didnt learn from their previous mistakes. I dont understand NCSoft's line of thinking. The last change I noticed was the largest drop and that is the reduction of AP. Now the die hard players were able to get their AP gear so NCSoft made it so it was nearly impossible for the average player to get AP gear. Here is the thing NCSoft doesnt seem to grasp. Aion is a multiplayer game and you have many different playing styles. Just like in the real world some styles of play dont work well with others.

  41. I'm disappointed (yet not entirely surprised) that this is the reason for the delays. You can look up all in-game IDs through https://aioncodex.com/usc/ - a database players put together from YOUR game files. As I don't think NCWest devs know what to search, I went ahead and did all the work for you - below are the NPC IDs associated with sieges: http://imgur.com/a/ZIWEefd - screenshots are of searches on AionCodex for "Dux", "Megadux", "Stallari", "Ulsaruk", "Seasoned Commander", and "Fortress Gate".

  45. It is a known bug since the introduction of untradeable white drops. Something to do with Aions lack of a netcode and flaw with packets. Once again, hitting the "take all" button will temporarily resolve it, but take your time looting. If you're too fast, it'll re-enter the whole thing. The issue is the server thinks you're picking up something else. It's a similar but not quite issue to the whole "if you get silenced then use a spell, and then quickly use a physical attack skill you won't be able to and the game will still say you're cant do that cause you're silenced."
