  1. Things that were deleted unnecessarily

    Nothing new honestly. NCSoft has been attempting to sell easily acquirable and cheap in game items for hard cash for years. They've only just gotten smart enough to actually remove the cheap and easy route from within the game itself. They've been trying to scam their customers for years, even going as far as to slightly rename some items to make them appear different. Here are some pictures posted on the old forums a few years back:
  2. 'Member when...

    Unfortunately this is not something that can be mitigated. The problem is not with just some of the changes made but the entire update. The foundation of this update, the core of it is for a completely different audience than what exists here in the west. This is not something that can be salvaged. The only options are to revert back to a prior patch or completely re-engineer 6.0 and on wards for a western market. You'd end up with two drastically different versions of Aion but that is the only way. What exists in the east does not work for the west anymore.
  3. 'Member when...

    6.0+ killed this game, ruined it. Some stuff sounded nice on paper but in practice it's hot garbage.
  4. motion card? skins? WTF?

    This could also very well be true, at least in the West. Aion is still going strong in Korea.
  5. motion card? skins? WTF?

    It's been months at this point and they still haven't managed to get everything from the old BCM ported over. At this point I doubt they have any real intention of doing so. By not having everything (or at least all the old stuff) on the BCM they create artificial scarcity. This encourages their customers to spend more money if they think this could be their one chance for a long time (if not ever again) to get what they want.
  6. AION 2 Mobile

    While Aion 2 and Legions of War are separate games, both are mobile games being developed. Aion 2 takes place before the cataclysm.
  7. 6.0 info

    Holy necro Batman! But yes, this game is well on its way to dying and that can be blamed firmly on completely mismanagement by NCSoft. 6.2 is a patch clearly intended for the Korean market. NOTHING about it works here in the west. They cannot continue to just keep porting these patches over to us. They need serious overhauls for the NA market.
  8. Aion's Music

    To think they removed so much of this beautiful music...
  9. Some how this doesn't surprise me. Just like the crap shoot that is 6.2, the thing that a lot of people were warning us about, people were also warning us about "Aion 2" and the likes of this. I'm not sure if these are the same thing but they are both mobile games that are not only outright terrible, but also screw with established lore beyond all belief. Aion will collapse in the west, the muscle in Korea has made absolutely sure of that with their terrible decisions. They have shown time and time again for the last decade and a half that they do not understand their western market. If it works in Korea, obviously it just works.
  10. Aion Legacy server please.

    No kidding. Flight combat was terrible, especially with the constant desync, lack of any real physics engine, and the peculiar design decision of making you instantly die if you fall for any long than three second straight. That said though, it was still a part of the game and enjoyed as a means of getting around in a few areas. It saddens me that wing feathers now are just another piece of pointless gear save for the core of the Abyss.
  11. Aion Legacy server please.

    I still have post-traumatic stress disorder as a gladiator fighting rangers in the abyss right at launch. Getting root locked with no ranged attacks to fight back with or CC breaks was horrible. I also still have the retail box which heavily advertises flight. This game really isn't the same without it. Hell it's not even Aion anymore at this point.
  12. Bots Ingame

    Ah the glory days of rifting. Bots were a nutritious source of free Abyss Points if you were careful to avoid real players while hunting them.
  13. Aion Legacy server please.

    It wasn't the best but crucible arena gear was viable in those days. You wouldn't go toe to toe with anyone in the BEST AP gear but you could certainly survive. With that gear I finally managed to beat a hardcore pvping friend of mine for the first time. I probably got lucky with my rotation but I managed it. The crucible made gear accessible to most of the population and it was a good starting point to work towards AP gear piece by piece. There were even items that allowed you to trade Abyss gear so if you worked on getting Kinah, you could simply buy them if someone was willing to sell.
  14. Aion Legacy server please.

    Everything after 4.8 was a mistake and the precedent was set. It has only gone downhill since then.
  15. Aion Legacy server please.

    Definitely 4.7 for a legacy server. PvP was pretty accessible due to arena gear, you had the "new" classes at the time, fan favorite maps such as Sarpan, Tiamaranta, etc are all still there, and you have the player housing from 3.0. Up to that point the game only had content added, they hadn't removed anything up to that point. We'd lose the Luna instances, a lot of skins, and some mounts but I say that would be worth it for the gameplay and revived content alone. They could always add new maps, instances, or skins after the fact if they wanted.
