    The thing is I have since then formatted my computer and I don't have the DPS meters installed anymore. Not sure if it enables chatlog in some Aion file or what gives. Either way I'm downloading the game again to see how that goes.

    If you copied it by a freak accident, then it can still cause lag whether you had the tool installed or not. When I opened the log to see one day, not even my PC could handle the scrolling. This ain't a potato PC I have either, so imagine that.

    I used to run ARM back in the day, 2-3 years ago.  I could tell I lagged more with that on during certain times, like siege and a few heavy congested areas.  I don't use it any more.

    Does a ping reducer program work for a ping average of 55?  Want to stop lag in IB and during sieges w/o trying shugo console.

    At this point it's all about optimization. The game is heavily CPU dependent, rather than GPU.

    As I said, it's been common knowledge that this is a fix for fps lag at sieges for many, many years. There's no point debating this. Your theory that it's only a fix for lag because the lag was being caused by shugo console itself is wrong. 

    I see. Then please do a clean install of Windows and Aion, then do show me where the chat log usually stays? That is, without attempting to install Shugo Console or DPS meter. Those always create chat logs.

    This is flat out wrong. Aion does have chatlog, and using shugo console to disable it has been a fix for fps lag at siege for time immemorial. I can tell when I've forgotten to open shugo console before playing because any pvp/pve with league-tier quantities of people will be laggy as hell, even with shift-f12 enabled. Open shugo console, the lag disappears within 1-2 seconds.

    It does not. If you had any other third-party tool installed, then removed it, the chat log remains. I know because I don't have it since I don't use Shugo Console.


    When I did use Shugo Console on my old HDD, however, I distinctly remember having the chat logs and was using them with Support to retrieve an item I sold by accident.

    FFXIV is the only MMO, really, that I think is doing well, and it put out one hell of an expansion, but it also has the entire IP to carry it + a company and team who give a nyerk about it + advertisement + players gushing over Shadowbringers' story. Aion doesn't have that, and, at this point, it never will.

    I can confirm that FFXIV's newest expansion is magnificent and paying for the sub is worth every penny.

    @Cheesecake-DN That must be the most aggressive post i ever seen you do.

    Because that's what Aion currently does to you, it puts you in this "aggressive" state of mind, albeit the game or company does little to reward the players. A game shouldn't be a chore.

    I can understand both points of view, but Neleth,it's time to move on. It really is. Aion was a masterpiece and glorious back in the day, but its glory has been overshadowed by a titan.

    lol don't start complaining if you just came bk from an hiatus so go bk to slumber cuase we don't need some negativity from someone who hasn't been online much to give their two cents haha and the vandal pack came to people and as cyan said  hes working to get the other half so please have some patience to the ones who haven't gotten the codes yet they will arrive sooner than you think 


    Quite the big mouth for someone who's unaware that I've been playing 7.0 since its launch before it even came to NA. Then again, how is my post regarded as "complaining" whilst I merely made a statement? If the new playerbase is filled with players such as you, then you are most correct, it's better to go back into my slumber and enjoy different games until NA pulls itself together.

    Then again, your comments barely ever make any sense, so there's that.

    I am sure he meant accounts. All you needed to get the give-away was one character on an account that was level 30+ and to have created a vandal. I am sure some people created a vandal on 5+ accounts.

    I find it weird one would want more Vandals for the packs. Isn't 1 just enough? lol

  6. Wanted to see if anything improved after my little hiatus, but seems it's just as bad if not worse. Quite the shame.

    1. The Vandal Pack was sent out to some eligible people (over 6,000) and the rest will be distributed by mid next week. 

    I'm sorry but am I honestly supposed to believe there was over 6k players in the game during 7.0 launch? Unless you mean 6k toons.

  7. That system should remain the same. If by chance it's made more difficult or any different than it should be, we all ought to be concerned as to why NA has little to no knowledge about the patches they receive.

  8. I'll try to explain this.

    All gear becomes Tier 1 (though it's not written anywhere). You have Genesis ancient gear. That is tier 1 that you bought pre 7.0. You can purify it to legendary then ultimate.

    In 7.0, you need different type of mats (named etium in KR but unsure in NA). You can purify your ancient T1 to ancient T2, or continue purifying til ultimate T1 and then purify that into ultimate T2.

    Tier 1 ancient > tier 1 legendary > tier 1 ultimate > tier 2 ultimate


    Tier 1 ancient > tier 2 ancient > tier 2 legendary > tier 2 ultimate.

    This only applies to PvP gear. All current PvE gear becomes automatically tier 1 and you might need to re-run instances to get tier 2.

    Is it true that Demaha, Lakrum and Divine fortress sieges the 3 of them happens at the same time?

    That is correct.

    Prices have gone up but I am assuming kinah gain will be the same, if not worse.

    You have the new Prestige Pass that can be considered a sub.

    Can, but it's not necessarily needed to play the game. On EU you need it if you want to access things like broker. On KR theres a lot of limitations as well, but you have like 4 spaces in broker and can talk in lfg.

    If that’s the problem why not just go back to pay to play model or even a buy to play model like games like BDO

    Perfect example of a true free to play game: Path of Exile

    BDO is buy to play and holds itself fairly well although it's just another grind game. Remember Bless online? That was b2p and now the game is shutting down in September after being out in the western market for a year.

    Another factor you have decided to completely ignore: greed.

    Korea has a big competition when it comes to games, thus money is far important than player satisfaction. Both of these things are connected and very few are able to execute that f2p model. 

    Aion was holding itself very well when it came out as f2p in the West, but it remained subscription based in Korea. Now that they went f2p in Korea as well, Aion is a different game. What gives?

  12. Korean MMOs have a different aesthetic compared to western games, Aion has a specific half-realism with touch of anime style and the character customization is fairly vast. Actually, most Asian games have this similar aesthetic. I tried WoW but never could bring myself to play it much either. I spent many years grinding my butt on Korean MMOs, and currently leaning in towards FFXIV (even bought the game already).

    MXM failed because it was overpowered by titans such as LoL and Dota2, let's remember that.

    NCSOFT has a bad habit of shutting down games if it brings them no profit, and the issue stems with the free to play model and greed. A model like that only brings a burst of players for a while but numbers eventually drop, forcing the company to come up with a crazy idea as fast as possible that could bring them benefit. In case of Aion, it's the transformation system. Aion was a fantasy MMORPG and should have stayed that way, but right now it lost its title of "fantasy", it's a furry's paradise.

    There used to be a sub in Aion which is now called prestige.  Seeing how he's a returning player, he probably played back when there were subs available which gave extra perks if you had one like how prestige does now.

    I know Aion used to have a sub (I've known about the game since its release), however I was thinking he meant Gold Pack in EU which technically can be considered a sub.
