  1. There's been two new servers that opened last month due to pretty much every server being at max capacity. It's crazy active, but there's been a lot of the same old aion problems. They have however already done developer Q&As to touch on the problems (faction imbalance, and cheaters are some of the top problems... as usual.)
  2. You're playing an "MMO" with like 100 players and you thought it was ok to spend thousands of dollars. Regardless of RNG that was just a dumb move. This game is dead and it's never recovering. The RNG will never improve. They will milk every cent they can out of the remaining players until there's not enough online to milk and then they will announce their sad disappointment of having to shut down the servers. NCWest had plenty of opportunities to keep this game active, competitive and at every turn they picked greed and seclusion. They allowed gear inequality to get so out of cont
  3. That story is pretty much already clear to be honest. Korea aion is still growing, numbers have more than doubled. In EU, euroaion private server sits around 3K concurrent players daily, more than any retail server in any region. I mean I'm not surprised people still currently playing would be opposed, but they're a minority and quite frankly they can all stay retail, nobody interested in classic will care. I just want to enjoy actual aion, not this cash grab skin simulator.
  4. Also use a 21:9 ultrawide. The game is virtually unplayable without shugo console for me. The default FOV for normal view distance is 65. On max its 72. I did a really in depth post a few years ago with videos about how aion's FOV is not accurate. It actually causes me and many people motion sickness, as do other games with poorly implemented FOVs. Every modern game I've ever touched, pvp included, gives the ability to alter FOV. Everyone has a preference but I find it strange that this day and age aion still hasn't allowed any camera alterations or QOL features. Even a color blind m
  5. That literally makes zero sense. Classic server will be 5x more popular than retail, at least. The fact you think you should play aion in another region makes me question what you even do in the game... As it is now private servers are just as popular, and some even more popular than NA retail, and NA retail was big upon release. People will come back, Korea already proved that, now over 60K players and Korea is the size of a peanut compared to the US.
  6. This. This post alone has almost 3K views, more than pretty much every top post in the past week combined...lol... I downloaded the game just to voice support for it on the forums, because I wasn't able to post, but I imagine 90% of people wont go through the trouble. There are some youtube videos from MMObomb and other websites talking about classic that have received 20/30K+ views, people are interested, and it hasn't even been advertised or talked about officially in NA yet. Hell, the weird petition that i'm sure 99% of people ignore has more signatures t
  7. Apologize, not going to individually quote everyone, but, I read a lot of the comments and will just generically touch on a few important things... For one, Aion was popular in NA on release. We had an insane amount of servers, and for those of us that played since beta, i'm sure you can remember switching channels constantly to do quests in areas. That's not to say "eVeRy AiOn PlAyEr EvEr WiLl CoMe BaCk" but, you have to keep in mind how competitive the MMO market was back then, compared to now. I remember when I first started Aion I was still playing FFXI and had played the FFXIV 1.0 Be
  8. I feel like every patch since 2.0, has in small steps changed the core of the game slowly, mostly for the worse, while only improving on it in some ways. That has happened with 6 major patches in a row now, and it has turned aion into some unrecognizable, shadow of a game it once was. The reason I think a classic server for aion can be so beneficial (and why it has been successful in every other MMO so far) is because hindsight is always 20/20, and it's really the perfect way to take each patch in steps, and rebuild the game into the best version of itself. I'll never play the curren
  9. Sorry will edit, checked last 2yrs and it hovers between 16~25 week to week. Edit: apparently I can't edit the previous post. What kind of forum is NCW running, here? lol.. Every MMO has bots and RMT unfortunately, it's kind of a mute point, and nowhere near "60%."
  10. Aion becomes 6th most played game in Korea passing WoW and Maple Story 3 months prior and for the past 2 years Aion hasnt even been in the top 50 in Korea, let alone being currently one of the most played games there behind only huge titles like Pubg and League of Legends. It's now been a month since release and it has only grown since. From 30K to now peaking well over 50K players and growing. All servers are pretty much at cap. Important to note retail numbers have basically not moved an inch. The servers are still dead with 300~500 players per server. Also... Important to note t
  11. I mean when I think back to classic, balance was a primary problem due to design, and a lot of those siege fixes such as times, hellfire getting locked to one faction and never flipping, divine dredg being bugged, commanders being tanked in a side room by two people.. etc... A lot of changes were implemented to fix things that caused balance to be a major problem, it was just done way too late. The other thing was the server merge of 1.9, combined with a new server location at the very same time, was one of the biggest mismanagements of all time. Hundreds of people quit pretty much the day of
  12. Had to download the game just to post support for this on the forum... lol. So since I had to download it anyways, and i've been reading the thread, I logged into retail a few times today... Never saw more than 150 people logged on at once on a sunday evening.. Saw as low as 90. Hate to tell you, but nothing is pulling players away from your game at this point... it's already dead. After seeing those numbers in person, it really blows my mind how the game is still even up and running. I quit a private server because the numbers were BETTER than current retail and I stil
  13. Hi guys! So, I've been scratching my head a bit since trying AION again, puzzled by the iffy performance. It's an old engine; the original Cry engine heavily modified and doesn't play nice with multi-core systems, but in no way do I expect to get stutters on some of the highest end equipment available, right? I wanted to share this in the case that anyone was experiencing the same issues I was with iffy performance! Since i'm going into a bit of detail here i'll throw some general optimization guide tips for people who want to get the most performance. Basic In-game settings Twe
  14. So, first off, I'd just like to state up front that I am the type of player that keeps AION servers running. I'm active, and have the income to indulge on entertainment, and would like to enjoy the game. But at this moment, there is no value to invest in. I've been gone from the game a long time for the most part, periodically making some sparatic, short lived visits generally to be shot down by issues I still feel the game has not addressed. Aion 6.0 was the first patch in a long time I've felt was possibly worth my time and money. And despite the issues I will talk about, I feel it can
  15. The underlying reason why AION has gone to shit is the pandering of a minority player base, a catering to P2Wers, hackers, and the endless fan boys that will support it versus protesting negative changes. The player base is always to blame for the industry normal, in my opinion, because we have the power to stop it with our wallets and time. The care bears have been ruining open world PVP since its inception. The lack of monitoring and banning of cheaters is unreal, borderline criminal. I've never seen such blatant hacking in the 3 weeks I attempted to get back into the game. I'm a vetera
  16. @Dreaming-KT Wow they really upgraded the forums to allow for this instead of quoting. Color me impressed! ...Yeah, I probably shouldn't respond to trolls but I never turn down a chance to discipline children. I got triggered from the trolling. I've loved AION since beta, I've played more and longer than the majority of people left. Sad being forced to quit due to the insane P2W changes to the game. I've defended P2W in the past when it wasn't extreme; stating that some people do work insane hours, like myself; some form of P2W can offset their lack of playtime. But right now, in its curren
  17. I get it, your reading comprehension is terrible. First off, I've played BnS. Like I said, I've played every game developed and published by NC in recent history. I've at least tried virtually every F2P and P2P MMO released since FFXI. Some more than others, obviously, as typically I have no patience for bad games. BnS's economy is NOTHING like BDO's. BDO's economy is regulated, with item and gold trading completely blocked aside from potions. BnS gold is tradeable, hell, at one point they were selling gold items with nccoin, I don't know if that still happens or how long it lasted. BnS questl
  18. Interesting. Lots of keybinds saved (***Looking at you; shift+alt+1/2/3/4)
  19. Over 8 million in sales, and in only a few months on Steam sold to over 400K players (and that was months ago) and it has maintained a top ten seller spot on Steam since release. The game is an undeniable success and the changes to the MMO industry since have proved it. Including the obvious mimics by NCSoft. I no longer play BDO and I'm not trying to "white knight" it, but, denying its success isn't healthy ^.~ . FFXIV and BDO, with the obvious exception of WoW, are the only games that are maintaining, and increasing in players. Every other game is bleeding players, and AION is quite frankly
  20. Thank you for this thread OP! Great work in translations. For the most part I have quit AION for a long time now. I tried to come back numerous times throughout the years, even spending some money in an attempt to jump-start the comeback. In the end, I ultimately decided that I wouldn't be able to be as competitive I once was because of the inability to gear, even through hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. Every patch seemed to put people who spent the most far above the average player and it seemed there was no end in sight and they were turning this game into a disaster P2W retard-f
