  1. A little digging around reveals Korea has the same pass (just different seasonal quests) for season 2. So this tells me multiple things: - NCWest doesn't care enough to actually update rewards to make the pass actually different, although their claim is "it's different a bit from the first one". - The price is not worth it, and all the rewards are useless if you've completed the previous pass or got level 45-50. - For the price of $30 and same rewards, same limited pets and motions, at this point is just an attempt to scam their players and milk them for the nostalgia - A "season" s

  2. I appreciate the survey. The main problem I see is IS-A attempting to "boycott" sieges until NCWest steps in. Boycott what? The company? If people wish to boycott the company, it's about not playing and paying money for the game. What's really happening is that those people have become part of the problem, and are actually boycotting themselves and their faction. Faction dominance comes from faction participating even if outnumbered, but not attempting because you're upset is childish at best. From what @Forthyn - Asmodaes Pea-kis posting, even SL-E is participating in sieges even if they

  3. As helpful as it is, really - with the cash shop candies causing inflation, all these xp boost events etc this really doesn't feel like a classic experience.

  4. ... <_< I'm not sure if you're just trying to annoy people for fun or if you're actually missing some brain cells. If a company advertises something it's not on the customer to do extra research to see if A) it will be changed B) if it will be removed. You see the daeva pass, you see the items, you make a free will decision to subscribe and buy that daeva pass based on the rewards you see. You wake up the next day and the rewards have been changed. This isn't ethical or actually even legal business practice. I'll give you an example your brain coul

  5. No coins and no scrolls? Only crap lol. Yesterday the coins were still in there, as I bought thew pass. After f*cking up everything, they listened to the community here and changed the rewards and made it even worse!? 30$ for this is ridiculous! I want a refund too, that was not the conditions I bought it for. I somehow had some hope for this game thats why I rejoined Aion classic after years, but 10 days in and I remember why I left.

  6. Tell me guys, how hard is it to ban bots? Is it hard to see that this is disrupting the game? https://youtu.be/YdKdYWF9RTc They are KSing real players... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBR9-TwIcLg Tell me NCwest... How do you intend to convince me to pay to play your game since bots are leveling 35+ and you don't do anything! How bots are level 35+ and NCwest Team didn't see that? I was trying do some quests on Eltnen Desert yesterday but a lot of bots were doing the same quest... It took me a while to complete mission I prefer to believe that NCwest is not turning a bli

  7. I would like to share my experience playing aion classic. I'll start by saying it could have been a great game but Ncsoftt blinded him from the money winnings. After level 20 you find yourself with needs depending on the class you will suffer a lot by leveling a character. Why? Because you find yourself with a market totally inflated by the controversial subject of the candys, and many are wondering if it is p2w and let me say that it IS. You will not enjoy playing aion because we know that you need kinah for almost everything and you will realize that something costs a million which is

  9. You see Kibbelz, you're a good guy for actually communicating here with us. We don't demand a full-on transparency here, but your superiors just baffle me the most. Maybe encourage them to actually take 5 minutes to read the forums for once and see, that we, as paying customers, are not happy with some services provided here?

  10. Asmo on IS legit have 0 chance of anything. Its so bad for both sides that Elys ACTUALLY dmed Asmodians to "Let" them Take Sulfur like seriously? Elys are so much more powerful than us that they decided lets throw them a bone? At least Elyos on Siel put up a good fight. Asmos on IS would rally 1 league and be met by one league on Artis while another league just chilled at the fort waiting and see if we made it.......... use your brain man. 1 month into launch IS is pretty dead. LFG Had maybe 5 -6 grps during PEAK hours bro.

  11. Good thing the server doesn't actually belong to selfish children like yourself. It won't be going the way you want it to. Suck it up, it's a low population game now and you don't speak for all of KT.

  12. Disclaimer: This post is written out of love for Aion and it's community. I truly love and still see the potential for the game and I am hoping this post will help guide NCwest from destroying such a beautiful work of art..... Listen to your player base.... I mean let's be real, launch week we had over 60,000 players. Before the end of the first week you lost over 50% of your playerbase with a large majority complaining about the Candy pay2win. By the time the free trial was done, it went down from 30,000 to under 10,000. Now let's look at some maths.... If you would of corrected the P2W

  13. Just to give some feedback and let my voice heard, and many others' who share the same opinion on this topic. This is NOT a classic experience. This is not why I play this game. The leveling experience is so great in this game, its a shame to hurry it. If its possible, I'm going to keep removing the buff.

  14. But the cost of running the servers is based on USA's cost of life. If they made the game cheaper they would have to bring revenue another way and this is why retail is p2w exclusive. Also if they made it cheaper for people in SA then people would log via a vpn to pretend they are from there to take advantage of this feature.

  16. Title. It doesnt matter how we got here or why at this point. What is important, is we are here and we need to merge or have xfers asap. The ship has sailed on git gud or no leadership nonsense. The 100% exp event completely killed off IS on the asmodian side. Everyone left to siel so in a sense there was already somewhat of a merge just not done by ncsoft but by the players who abandoned their characters on IS. We cant even reliably do PvE content let alone siege or pvp. No cheap survey that doesnt even give greater scrolls is going to revive this dead server. Offer xfers, myself and many oth

  17. You clearly didn't read/comprehend his post. It's not hard. We don't want to re-roll (and shouldn't feel obligated to) for various and logical reasons. Yes, you bring up a solution to the problem for individuals but if more people leave Israphel then that will just further compound the issue.

  18. Yeah he did read the description, he even checked the list of items he was purchasing for the new season, once he purchased them... they changed the list afterwards. I do not understand most of your posts, these people got scammed, they got a list of things shown to them and once they purchased it that list was changed to much worse items.

  19. Bots and candies do change my game play, vastly. Whatever I do, someone else does it better due to 24/7 botting, whatever drop I have, someone had 20 of them because they have a bot, whatever I gather, someone has 100 times more because of his bots or because he bought candies and he emptied the broker of those mats so eh can craft, whatever kinah I make, someone has 100 times more either by kinah or by candies. The game is a social game and it is a competitive one. I am not playing classic to become a farm bot. When you spend 2~3 hours gathering and crafting you were supposed to have an

  20. I pretty much live for aion, been waiting for a classic version to drop for years now and this is absolutely the best game ever made, to me. I'm not too concerned with the candies and all of the weird inflation they're causing, it has definitely changed the pace of the game a lot since the original release but so have we, as players since we know everything about the game now. Beyond that a few glaring red flags exist that really snuff out my future enthusiasm for this classic version. 1) lack of communication from developers - Aside from here on the forums Kibbelz, I have yet t

  21. I think you confuse the situation with consumers who are tired of getting screwed by companies. I payed for services I did not receive, and support told me they don't care (in their own words). There is nothing shady about my position, as NCSoft essentially is taking money for services they haven't provided, end of story. It would have been NP if they had simply refunded the Quna that got accidently used 2 days prior to season ending and no rewards were taken on that character, nadda. I am sorry if you feel consumers standing up for a $30 purchase for services they never received is the

  22. Why have you removed the coins from the daeva pass? WTF the only reason I bought that was cause of the coins to be able to gear myself while levelling up. This is a big slap on the face of ppl who spend money in this game.

  26. Your statement here: "More similar to the first one". Unless it's badly worded, to me it means: - Some items will be similar (i.e. scrolls and pots) - Some items will be different (i.e. motions and pets) What we get, however, is the exact same copy & paste pass from the first season, the only difference are just the quests. The question remains: why did you keep it the same in the first place? You folks already knew people were disappointed with the first pass, and yet you come here and blatantly put the same useless stuff in there, FOR THE SAME PRICE. The FACT tha

  30. I wish I understood what this survey would change for those level 50s that have decided to ditch the server to Siel-A... It would have only made sense if by the release of the 100% EXP buff .. you've closed the creation of Siel Characters or especially Siel-A until the EXP event is over. That would have been a bit more effective with your survey but nevertheless still quite useless. The survey did me no good at all, I am 50. Amulets went to rubbish, low tier scrolls... I already buy Greater Tier ones from the broker. The HP and MP potions are also outdated for level 50s. Basically no

  31. It is incredibly how NCsoft can destroy the same game twice. How do they plan to compete with other games like WoW / FFXIV. Bugged ass instances, paid shop, P2W, low population... Why couldnt they just made a paid sub and put in items that can help lelveling and cosmetic in shop? Well idk, everything just points to low dedication, does not care for its players, they don't even answer this dam forum apart from 1 guy once in a while... This shit will die soon like the original bc NCsoft just think about its own damn pocket, and they are even more thoughtless that if they decided to mak

Not long time ago i told my friends that when NC West starts to sell Paragon +8 gear i would end my time in Aion forever.. i gonna wait and see how this event gonna work, and decide if i will sadly finally uninstall Aion or gonna continue to contribute along with the 30 players online everyday in retail. For those which dont understood yet: Paragon +8 gear is stronger than Truestorm and Bittertorn.. if u have a single piece of it, u gonna have more stats of a ordinary player at the current patch. Paragon +8 gear gonna be revamped at 8.0 and gonna have pretty much the same stats of the

  33. I think you miss the point. Those of us who don't want it don't want it because it's not what was promised to us. It's been a few weeks and we already have people completely done with the main game. This is far from a "classic" experience. Giving XP boosts as much as they have feels like their rushing everyone to the next thing. Most of us who wanted classic wanted to play classic, not rush through everything. Most of us would be happy with a double XP event if it wasn't for the fact that for two weekend we already had a 30% gain and this double XP is an entire week long. XP increa

  35. This thread is apparently 90% people who don't even play on IS-A???? lol I play on IS-A. I was level 34 the last time I went to siege (Wednesday), and over half the Elyos league was purple. So I think, yes, Elyos do have more high levels than we Asmos do. I don't really care about this as I'm playing at my own pace to actually enjoy myself, not rush to endgame, but anyway, worth mentioning. Another issue we face is that Elyos kind of got a "leg up" on us by winning the first fort. That allowed them to kisk more easily for the next siege. That kind of created another downward spiral.

  36. They don't play their own game, that's the sad reality, no matter how much filters they put in, no matter how many attempts they make to ban the bots, they will never be able to request anything until they have at least a couple of GM's in the game who take care of the bans, with whom they would play it they would realize. Instead they proceed to ban people for use VPNs instead of bots. At this rate they are going to have to join servers sooner rather than later due to the amount of people who are leaving. Much imbalance also in Israphel (Elyos / Asmos). Hopefully they get their nort

  37. First off, I am NOT an NCSoft defender. Gaming has been my hobby since 1969, and computer gaming has been my hobby since the late 80's (DOS, CPM, and monochrome monitors with awful resolution. Really, if you wern't there you missed NOTHING!). So, with the title setting the monologue, lets get to it. Whats Right! Well it's difficult and it feels just like I remember. Nice job NCSoft. Aion classic ticks all the right boxes for me. I honestly couldn't be happier. A few annoying bugs here and there. Noticed one yesterday I think I best post up on quickly. Not a game kil

  38. I totally understand the abandon of retail servers in the first week because of Classic free trial, and even the second week of abandon because the possible Classic fixes and stuff. But whole 3 weeks of nothing? Do something.. a p2w event, some old event returning.. 7.9 part 2.. Cat collection event... Mouse/Keyboard.. bring Garden back to at least make us have the false impression of people online (afk into garden).. i dunno. Dont tell me ice cream event is something with that prizes loot table.

  40. These kind of answers is the example of what we do NOT need on this thread. With this you only make us go backwards instead of forward. First of all VPNs are needed. You can't tell us to stop using them when the game can be unplayable without using one. I talk from my experiencie: 260~350 ms with no VPN. 170~180ms stable ping WITH VPN We already understand how bans work and its not IP Block, they're not blocking the IPs, its not "just turn the VPN off and keep playing". They are blocking the Accounts. Everything Wesker says has the right point. If

  45. First off, the server populations are fine, they could be better sure, but this game is already doing so much better than retail is. There are some things that keep players away, but I don't think Siel's aura is it. Daeva pass overcharging, the game not being 'classic' enough, the game being too grindy for western gamers, too much p2w for the game being mostly subscription based. The only people who are complaining about the f2p restrictions are those from poor countries or people who don't have the disposable income to be able to afford a sub.

  46. Normally I would give them the benefit of the doubt, but this seasons Daeva Pass isn't worth 30.00. Sure there are the enchant stones and more AP relics, but I feel it could be better. As i've stated in another post, the Daeva pass really needs to be account wide, but individually based for leveling it up.

It was a plain text file called aionfilterline.dat which you could edit with Notepad on your PC, all it contained was a bunch of words, one per line, or any other characters you wanted to filter out eg. VVVVVV or .C0M etc. that the kinah spammers like to use. What changed last maintenance, is the file aionfilterline.dat is no longer recognized by Aion, it now has to be a zip file renamed to aionfilterline.pak which is nowhere as convenient to work with as the previous aionfilterline.dat plain text file.
