    I really like the events which we actually have to PLAY to earn prizes.. and also, the ones with group involved to incentive the team work. I would like to see more events that make u clear instances to get some kind of coin to buy rewards and buy stuff with 100% of success, NO RNG INVOLVED like the craft one. Also, make those events truly rewarding, with the most expensive prize to be something really wanted, like legendary transformation contracts and +15 Stigmas! Like, do a way to make players farm in every instance for like 2 or 4 weeks to buy the top prize! And make them constant.. people like to do events. Other games like Final Fantasy XIV never have a single week without events. In other hand, I know we need p2w events, because we are a f2p game, but NEVER, EVER.. do a p2w event without a f2p event running as well. It's VERY discouraging for the majority of the players. The last decision about transformation was good.. make it a permanent mechanic, but don't wait like 6 months to deliver another transformation promotion.. make one each 2 months, for example. Also, try to do something similar to stigmas, like.. if u fail 300 stigma enchant from 0 to 9 or 9 to 12 on a event with stigma enchantments, let the player have a +9 or +12 stigma.. incentive the new players For now is the only things I can remember about events.

    First: Events that add 150 PVE Buff is not cool, actually, it's a punch in the face. Second: We need events that can be really rewarded, we need ULTIMATE TRANSFORMATIONS, STIGMAS,OLD MOTIONS, PERMA MOUNTS, SKINS, ETC!

    Yeah, world boss events are absolutely useless for 95% of the playerbase and should not exist, period.

    In addition to the important items listed above (transformations, stigmas, etc) that we need in events, could we also get an NPC from whom we can purchase skins and motion cards with event coins? We beg, beg, and beg for old and rare skins, but we continue to get the same ones rotated on the BCM -- very rarely at that. We almost never have the motion cards rotated. I've been asking to literally give NCWest real money for the Dragon's Set motion on the BCM for nearly a year now, and it has not been put up. Others have been begging for the Red's Basket for Granny motion card, and we haven't seen that one in over two years now. An NPC to purchase these cosmetic items in an event would be much appreciated. An example of this being done in the past was actually in last year's 10th Anniversary event. (https://www.aiononline.com/news/10th-daevas-day-event-celebrations) It had the Fashion Robot which had the fairy wings , Swing Dance card , and some other cosmetic items available for purchase with the anniversary coins we received. I really enjoyed saving up to purchase those two items.

    @Kibbelz @Loki good afternoon you already asked this question a few days ago all the players said that they wanted the ultimate select transformation event but you engnorou us and put it on the website to sell and profit .... now will the poor players be able to have an ultimate select transformation too?? @Kibbelzbe fair it puts an ultimate select transformation event for us free to player

    Nobody asked for this to be honest and I don't find the reason. In the site it says that you will be able to see twitch videos and streamers... nope, this is where you stop, if we want to go to social media we can do it. This looks like you are trying to make the launcher like EPIC games where it is not just a launcher but a promotional and advertisement platform and social media. We are old school grumpy mmorpg players, we won't like this for sure.

    Imagine telling us you care and all you do is put p2w stuff.... Imagine releasing the worst event ever done in 11 years and saying I hope you guys enjoy it ... Imagine making an event where everyone just steals the loot from each other and saying you care about the community... Imagine releasing an event that features the usage of auto-hunt functions and saying that you don't want that feature in your game... Imagine telling your player base that you're going to release new transformations, but nobody cares about it because you guys only sell it from your store... Imagine telling people you care about their feed back and the next move you do is put their feed back on your store but not in the game... Imagine lying non stop to people who put food on your table... You guys should be forced to play the game so maybe you will know what you're doing to us ... That should be your punishment !!! Shame on you !@Kibbelz @Loki

    I think you guys do a pretty good job on frequency with events but I'd like to see more care taken with which events you decide to pair together (this applies to concurrent shop specials/deals too). As has been mentioned a few times here already, do not run entirely (or almost entirely) p2p events without running something substantial that is mostly f2p. Since you guys aren't too skittish about running multiple events at once, this shouldn't really be a difficult thing to do. Just sit down and ask yourselves which group of players (New/Returning/Active) the event appeals to and, if one or more groups isn't impacted by an event, run one alongside it that hits the rest of the groups. It doesn't have to be perfect but I think you guys have heard a lot of moaning when this stuff isn't taken into account at all. Also, on this point, don't skimp on events that ask us to be active out in the world/instances. Afk events are fine as long as we also have something pulling us out of town, a lot of Aion's strength as a game is found outside the confines of whatever town we're in and we already have a ton of daily activities that ask us to be mostly afk. Give us reasons to be active. (Psst, this means run some PvP-centric events that aren't solely based on world bossing), Rewards. I'd like to see a lot more of the fringe stuff that's mostly restricted to world bosses find its way into events sporadically. It's okay that it's rare but the idea that anyone outside of a very select few could possibly end up with a t3 Imbued weapon is nonsense. Extendies need to find their way back into circulation as well though I think, if my memory serves, we are getting new ones soon-ish. Still, those need to be available again. As for transformations I keep seeing a ton of people just directly asking for Ultimates. I don't really care how it happens but Legendaries need to be vastly easier to come by which should, in turn, give us far better access to ultimates. We all have collections to complete that require essentially the entire roster of legendaries and ultimates and virtually no way to even begin to get that done. You've made it clear with previous posts that these are intended to be rare and difficult to get, that's fine. But with the rates we have, I could get a legendary for free every week and have a terrible chance of seeing an ultimate for months. Our current rates break down to 1/2 a month. That's crazy. Monetize the roster, not everyone's first ultimates. tl;dr Legendary Transformations should be on essentially every event reward list for how critically important they are. Lastly, a little feedback on this little buff shugo we've got in instances. 150 attack is fine for something like Primeth's Normal but if your goal here was to encourage players to try new instances even if their gear maybe isn't quite up to par, this buff needs to be a lot higher in stuff like AoA or the HMs. Like, it's fine but it basically amounts to nothing. People who couldn't do it before probably can't do it now, and those who could still can. Instead, look to run events that promote people to go for their first clears on stuff (specific HM bosses/AoA/etc) that get the community into a more active place for helping each other reach their endgame goals while giving newer players a taste of the more difficult content. Give mentor-ish bonuses, first clear bonuses, etc. Other games do this with fair frequency, look to them for some examples of how to shape your PvE community into a more healthy version of what we have now.

    @Kibbelz @Loki needs ultimate transformation event!

    So we didn't get the auto-hunting feature because they don't want ppl to focus on solo play??? Well while I admire that sentiment if they truly didn't want to push players to solo play they should re-vamp the reward systems for siege cause everyone knows you get better credit going solo if you are geared then if you go with a group. Same thing goes for farming XP, you get more faster XP solo then in a group. Same for farming kinah, you don't share the loot, therefore it's more beneficial to solo instances.... I agree that NCsoft should focus on community, but with the majority of mechanics in the game at the moment, it feels like the only way to to really become successful is to be selfish or a solo player for the most part.

    How much fun is it being one shot killed by Asmos who run the maps for the most part, There is no balance and little fun PVP anymore. I can play Aion if there are no Asmos around to one shot me, but why play a game when you cant PVP with Asmos anymore? I never understood how you could ruin a game with so much potential, We can not fly and PVP anymore, you removed so many maps, no more fun Seiges etc, etc.

    Totally agree with @Nyali-DN. I really like the new launcher since we can see ongoing events (with their full description), and it just looks way more pleasing to the eye than the old one. I haven’t had any issues with double clienting (yet, I guess?) so I don’t have a problem with it.
  18. 3 points
    Totally Agree with this! As buff events, we need 1 kinah retuning back! Its very expensive roll status of ultimate gears! As rewards we can have more options to get Legendary transformations or Gemstones/Runestones too.

    I can't see that anyone who doesn't work for NCSoft can truly know the details of their business model, nor do we know exactly how many people pay, nor how many people pay absolutely nothing. I can say that not a single month has gone by in the last 11 years where I have NOT paid- so I have hardly failed to contribute to the ongoing game maintenance and support. Now, I would consider myself someone who actively supports the product however I am not all willing to sink 3 figures or more just on ONE item, and then in future continue to sink money because there WILL be more money sinks in order to remain competitive - and this is from someone who is fairly well geared- just imagine a new or returning player? and your statement about "catering" to F2P is fairly nonsensical because you answer yourself- without F2P the game WILL shut down as no one wants to just be cannon fodder for some spoiled whales. It's very similar to what happened to the perma-rifting twinks way back, people left in droves. The population is too low to sustain losses. There are alternatives to Aion. Contrast this with another game that I play where everyone pays a modest subscription $20 per month and the shop consists mostly of vanity items like skins and mounts. Those mounts are available, by the way to ALL characters on my account , are permanent, and are reasonably priced. The population in this game is waaaaaay larger and queues pop for multiple instances all the time - and yes, the game is stable and with regular patches and the content is incredible.

    most of these complains about p2w can be resolve by removing the RNG or increase it significantly. It really break your spirit when you spent months of hard work (playing a game = work) only to failed and all your resources destroyed. It makes the game less enjoyable. All these endgame features (skills, s minions..) are only attainable through p2w. We are playing a party of 6 full Sov + katalam accessories and get rolled by a single ulti transform cleric and it really affect your ability to enjoy the game

    They need to nerf the kill quest limit. Do they really expect people to kill 1200 mobs daily, let alone 7k mobs in a week? It's pretty ridiculous tbh
  25. 2 points
    at least they giving us some reasoning behind the decision, which is kind of something, but then they go copy/paste events from elsewhere that you need auto-hunt function to do....
  26. 2 points
    Lets start off by saying this. Im glad they came out and spoke publicly about the auto hunt situation, and made an official letter for it. Not just plopping it on the forums where people may not even see it. I would also like to add, I understand why the auto hunt feature isnt in the game. It gets rid of the entire grindy aspect of a MMO and is just an afk type thing. Now, some negative things on that. In my opinion, a large portion of the player base that complained about it wasnt complaining about the fact we dont have it. But more so, the issue that it takes an absurd amount of time killing 1500, 7000 mobs for two quests that dont give rewards worth it. From what I saw, people didnt like how many mobs, and the amount it took to complete the quest. For only 25 Event Coins. I do wish there was discussion about what they are working on to better the player base, like RNG issues, Ultimate Transformation issues, Combining Contract Issues, Etc. I guess we just have to wait and see whats going to come in the future for that. And for the final part of the letter, the transforms. Why are we adding more transforms to the game when 85% of the player base doesnt even have the ones currently in the game. Are these legendries or ancients, commons? If theyre new legendries, that means more collection buffs, more legendries to get in a contract. Which is nice in the end, but at the start... I own 2 legendries, ive combined ancients and haven't gotten 1 legendary. I cant be trying to combine and have a chance at getting ANOTHER legendary thatll have no benefit to me, because I dont own its partners for the collection, and its not an extra so i cant combine for an ultimate. If more and more contracts keep being added, they need to be easier to get. I mean Jesus, people are farming for the next 8 months for an Apostle transform... Ultimate/Legendary contracts need to be a more common item in events, if were getting more and more transforms. Currently I have a 2/29 chance of getting an extra legendary, by the time I get an ultimate contract ill be six feet under. This anniversary event would of been a great way to put an ultimate contract at a fixed price. You could of put an ultimate contract in the merchant for 400 anniversary tokens. Something that not a lot of people might go for, but some will. It causes a lot of grinding, by doing the daily quests and the minigame and the daily quest rewards. And therefore people arent complaining about the rewards in the event. You could put the worst rewards in the world in that vending machine, but in my opinion, if theres even a single ultimate contract for a fixed price.. then the rewards are amazing. I want to make it clear, i dont mean anything hateful but this is genuinely the perspective i have currently on these changes. Yes, im glad that major issues in the community are being recognized, but theres still a lot of things left in the unknown.

    I dont know whats the purpose of having our feedback to ur shitty system of managing the game is for when you gonna trow a shitty event that doesnt even have any good things with it.. once again you fail being a good productive game.. congrats to the team with the less braincells who have to copy an EU event and trow it with less of the rewards and stuff .. congrats YOU ALL SUCK AS A MANAGEMENT Next time dont ask for our goddam- opinions if you are not really interested and you just wanna act like you fking care

    This screenshot is taken on NA 1,500 mobs per day, it is not a reasonable number of daily mobs kills when our Combat Support (autohunt) system is disabled Look awfully similar to the following previous Taiwanese event where the event page clearly tells you to activate Combat Support (autohunt) to do these : And their last autohunt event was only 1,000 mobs per day

    This new form of tile-based-pvp is definitely my favorite part of this event. Not because it's fun or anything, just because the opportunity for tile-based rubbish talking is great. Get ready Elyos, I'm gonna tile you like I'm sensibly remodeling my bathroom and you're the floor.

    I think they should just give an S minion to CHUKRI and everyone else who failed that much. The rate is supposed to be 70%, so failing 6 times should be 0,3^6= less than 0,1% probability ! It took me 6 months to level my 4 rank A minions, and now I’m scared even to try to combine them.

    its not just one.. they are many tools.. but it ncsoft want to stop bots/hack they can do it.. they have a database with statistic, they know how the kinahs moves.its normal for 1 guy to have 500millions kinahs.. but when it goes over the billions, something is going on. average price on broker, etc.. they know it. but they dont give a *****. Hackers.. they are many ways to implement antihack system.. Lets say that u can report in game some1 that u think is doing hack. and then some1 else report the same guy. The system automatically start collecting his data on server, cooldown, attack speed, running speed, buff, ping, etc. they dont need a person to ban the guy.. the system automatically can do it.. if the guy goes out of the parameters. But how i said.. they dont want to do it.

    They announced the guaranteed ultimate transformation after the first few days of the sale in BCM. In my opinion, this was a very sly move. A lot of people spent a lot of money already during the first few days to get Ultimates.. and then they announce this "compensation" after the fact. Very, very sly NSCOFT. You take care of your player base? I don't think so. I personally felt deceived by such tactic... and it is unfair. Maybe not for people who actually worked hard in game to obtain legendaries.. but it is for people who don't have that much time to spend in-game and decide to spend money instead (mind you, supporting the company and the game).

    I don´t know if a new launcher was really required. Some players are new, but others saw so many of those unnecesary changes and usually some bugs and some days waiting them to be fixed. on the other hand, there are some things that really require a change. I totally would like to have a "reconnecting" function in Aion when something fails or you lose for few seconds your connection. Also would be really nice to have some kind of quick log in after a send log or a suddenly crash. I know that even 10 secs can be a lot in a middle of some battles. But some minutes having to open the launcher, reloging, waiting for a complete files scan, pin.... I saw that in other games, some of them so smaller than Aion and it really changes everything.

    So you guys can waste time and make a useless new launcher that doesn’t fix anything but you can’t even write a basic update to subdue everyone’s fears over this? This is people’s money you playing with, man...you don’t mess around with that stuff. People deserve to have transparency when they giving you money. I just really hope this event in the end won’t be another notch on Ncsoft long patterns of abusing their player base horrendously even though it kind of already has... Pretty sure I already qualified (unless ncsoft really gonna pull a joke) but it’s really disheartening to see some friends and legion members get screwed over big time because you guys don’t bother properly informing your community and cheating us out. It doesn’t make playing too fun lmao

    I remember when people were asking about the launcher because Blade and Soul got it in March 2019. So it was just a matter of time to see Aion getting added to it. Nothing really changes, which is good! As for the social media aspect, it's just an add on. If you wanna use it, do it, if not, it's whatever. *shrugs*

    I don't agree with you because there is no game as amazing as AION. The problem with AION has always been management. It was never the GAME. If AION had good managers it would be bigger than World Warcraft. It is the de-characterization, infantilization and trivialization of AION that made it weak. In the hands of a company committed to the customer, AION would be one of the biggest games in the world.

    Does anyone realize how much money NCSoft is charging people for an ultimate xform? Or is everyone too blind from loving the game that they fail to realize it? The amount of money that NCSoft wants to people to spend on their game is OUTRAGEOUS in comparison to all other MMOS out there. And its not just on a one time basis nonono — its for every other event pretty much. Over $500 for one ultimate xform? Ask youself: is an ulti xform really worth over $500? If you’re answer is yes, then I feel sorry for you. I just bought a new 50 inch wall tv for my bedroom lol and its way cheaper than an ulti xform in a game that isn’t even popular anymore in the US. Even if I had billions of dollars, I can think of thousands of ways to spend it to get better value than an ultimate xform. ”You can’t tell me how to spend my money”.....ya, but I can tell you that you’re a fool if you spend tons of dollars on something that isn’t worth it. Thanks to this, now there’s going to be two types of players in Aion: 1) the p2w players who have ulti xform 2) the f2p players who have nothing. And guess what- both groups lose! the f2p players get destroyed in game and the P2P players get their wallets destroyed. It really is sad to see how people think its ok to spend a large sum of money on an old game and think its worth it. What about putting in an event in the game that allows people to get an ultimate xform for free if they grind something for a decent amount of time? Nah, lets let them just pay hundreds for it. No other game that I’m aware of rips their customer base off this much. And if they do, you probably see why they aren’t successful in maintaining a game. Nah, I think i’ll buy the ps5 or xbox series X instead of a ulti xform. Thanks NCSoft for the very generous offer(lol), but you ain’t getting my money

    NO, thank you. I am perfectly capable of calculating exactly how much that will cost me - yes- you have conveniently not put actual minimum currency - $- in there- nor have you any thought at all for those players , even in NA- who don't pay in US dollars. This isn't any kind promotion after 2 years, it's a response, most likely to those bleating large mammals who have sunk oceans of money even though the odds in each event were never published and there were never guarantees of rewards. The guaranteed reward should be available in-game to F2P after some collection, or "x" numbers of failed combinations. I don't know- but F2P need some motivation other than " exceedingly rare and difficult to obtain".

    I apologize if this sounds harsh, but that is like saying the guy who bought $1000 worth of merchandise from a store two days before a blowout sale deserves the same discount the guy buying today gets. Unfortunately, this is a business and if they want to introduce a new promotion or giveaway they can't worry about making everyone who participated in an event a month ago whole. Besides, wasn't the Joker event back in April? 😐
