  1. Taking advantage of players in a hard time??

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with despising P2W whales and people who think axing more than half the game (and removing content and maps with almost every major patch) is a positive change. These particular "focus groups" are a cancer to healthy, enjoyable games.
  2. Taking advantage of players in a hard time??

    I've all but quit the game at this point and I still stick around to nyerk because I'm nyerking furious this company took a game I loved and have supported since the the day is launched and ruin it more and more with almost every patch. I absolutely -hate- the people that still defend this game and its more extreme changes because those are now the people the company is attempting to cater to at the expense of everything and everyone else. I want them to hear and acknowledge criticism, I want them to fix the glaring issues not just with the game but with their business model. I want the NA / Western team to actually REPRESENT us rather than barely communicating at all. Aion is objectively a terrible game and objectively a terrible experience now but it doesn't have to be. That is the worst part. I gave 5.x a chance, I gave 6.x a chance. I've given 7.x a chance. Over and over and over for months at a time I try to give the game a chance and I only get disappointed every time. I think people like him and I reserve the right to criticize a game we used to love, one most of us used to pay monthly to even access. They've ruined it and they continue to ruin it.
  3. Taking advantage of players in a hard time??

    I've been here since launch and I have NEVER seen a game and company **** up repeatedly so many times. I have never seen them kill a game so swiftly all the while ignoring their consumers and community. Even SWG wasn't this bad.
  4. Weekly Server Maintenance - April 1, 2020

    There has been a thread begging for some outfits other than rainbow snake on the BCM (in fact we've been begging for something new for the last 1-2 years,) and we get yet ANOTHER rainbow snake event when there is already a ton of these costumes in circulation already? I have never seen a company more out of touch with its community.
  5. Please take stupid Snake costume(s) off BCM

    This post gave me coronavirus. What the hell are they thinking? Nobody liked this event the last several times we've had it and those costumes are still the easiest and cheapest to get. Jesus.
  6. Please take stupid Snake costume(s) off BCM

    I think the reason is two-fold. 1. They expected the butchering / streamlining of the game to reel in a big wave of casual, fast paced MMO players. 2. Either as a result of point one, or just plain incompetence, NCSoft West saw no reason to do anything other than give us the same exact business model seen in Korea. I suppose they looked at games like Archeage with their costume rotations and thought it would be a good idea. Backfired miserably. I'm still angry to this day that Hime or Cyan lied to my face about the BCM only being a shell of it's former self because all the old stuff just had to be "ported over." It was implied we'd get everything back that was on it and then some only for them to pull a bait and switch and do absolutely nothing with it. It's been a year and still it's barely changed since the new one launched.
  7. Serious question

    I think there MIGHT be a couple on the Asmodian side, there used to be a tiny guild or two running but that was before NCSoft up an deleted half of the game. It became harder to get skins and some of them were removed altogether. Maps were removed or had entire areas blocked off. As far as I know RP is a dead and gone as the rest of the old game and I'm someone who started out on Lumiel, the original RP server.
  8. Is Aion Dead?

    Just your resident pessimist here to tell you the game we enjoyed since launch is dead, gone and not coming back. The Aion you are familiar with was completely killed when 6.0 arrived. There are still enough people around to play but if you ask me, there really isn't anything actually enjoyable or rewarding about the experience anymore. As much as this game needs more life injected into it, I absolutely cannot recommend coming back to it or investing your time, energy, and effort into it in any way. It's been all but abandoned by NCSoft west and NCSoft (the parent company) doesn't care about NA at all. The game is dying. Slowly.
  9. Other titles, including Aion, are still very successful in the east. This has little to do with the west and even the link says it's the Korean Stock Exchange.
  10. Mark my words, Lugbug is going to become yet another Evergale Canyon. I hope you have other things to occupy you for the next year or more.
  11. Eh. Not much feedback in regard to the patch itself? I like that we can finally put kinah into the account warehouse since I was tricked into consolidating it all on one character before 6.0 landed. That said though? I'd personally like to see the following: Allow Kinah to be traded again, this broker only thing IS NOT working out. Bring back player shops as well. Remove the restrictions on cross-class armor wearing entirely or at least return it to the way it was pre-6.0 for skin and costume purposes. Return removed NPCs and skins to the game such as those you could purchase in Sanctum and Pandaemonium. Better yet re-open the blocked off areas of these cities. Return crafting so that we may once again craft weapon and armor skins, as well as furniture for our homes. This is a stretch, but bring back the old legacy maps from launch, even if only for exploration purposes. This is all basically just quality of life and fan service stuff. I know better than to really ask for any sort of mechanics changes at this point considering Eastern NCsoft tends to ignore that entirely every time. If they listened we wouldn't be in the mess we're in now.
  12. Hopefully 7.2 patch update fix server transfer bug

    Waiting for a staff member with the username Bush to tell us: This will not be another Vietn- Evergale Canyon.
  13. Best update ever

    Welp, game over. We've sailed past the point of no return folks. If this is whats on the horizon there really is no hope for this game ever improving, at least not here in the west... I cannot understand the reasoning behind any of what they've been doing and this is just the cherry on top of it all. This is as close to a mobile game-esque "auto-resolve" feature as we can get.
  14. you've butchered your own game...

    In my personal opinion, no, no it can't. Korea is several patches ahead of us right now so we already know what's coming. If people don't like the way things are right now, it's only going to get worse from here and we're about to step up to the plate for the removal of even more maps and content. NCsoft West has either not been allowed to make the necessary changes to the way the games is played or works for a western market or they simply haven't even bothered asking to make such changes. We're still at the mercy of eastern NCSoft and that's going to be a slow, painful death for this game in the west and that's on top of an extremely apathetic staff / management with the exception of Cyan who is the only one who really communicates with us at all anymore.
  15. A Simple Request... I hope.

    Partially true, plate wearers could wear any armor type in the game. I used a few different pieces of cloth armor to make a colorful clown outfit and did use the chainsaw skin for the greatsword. Paired great with the mask you used to be able to buy. Never said I won the fights though. From back in said days:
