About fearemall-DN

  1. Outrageous

    Thats like going to a car dealership and buying a 2004 used mazda when the sales rep says “hey, we’ve lowered the price of this vehicle from 150k to 100k.” The price is still outrageous, but nonetheless you say “wow” and buy the car. Thats how oblivious people are in this game.
  2. Outrageous

    @Amiteah-KTOh rly, just $500? Thats it? Just $500? “Wow look, from 2k down to $500.” You are a perfect example of how sucker the Aion player base truly is.
  3. Outrageous

    @Cheesecake-DNAgreed. Good to have you in one of my posts btw mate. @Rapier-DNik, Aion used to be a great game and now its pretty much reducing itself to dust. Let the feeders feed this game with the last of their savings. Its their fault NCSoft keeps putting in P2W events because the players foolishly accept it and keep paying and paying and paying. Ever wonder why you never see a discount on Black Cloud Coin and only items in the BCM btw?😂 If this isn’t obvious idk what is.
  4. Outrageous

    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
  5. They are trying to listen - I get that, and I understand that Kibblez and the community team only have so much authority to make changes. However, over the course of Aion’s life, the only simple solution seems to be “Ok, let’s give the community what they want, but put it in the BCM.” Thus, p2w. Sure, its a f2p business model, but Aion also 2 pay routes: -Prestige model -BCM As a free player, you pretty much get nowhere in the game. You have to pay to get somewhere. Or you pretty much get wrecked. So yes - free to play. But free to suck NCSoft can make thousands of changes to make a smoother business model, increase revenue, and get more players back. Lets look at an example.... Runescape - why is Jagex doing so well and their game so popular? Because 1- they listen to their player base all the time and poll them to make decisions 2 - They put events and items in the games for free so everyone can enjoy them 3 - they offer a reasonable subscription fee that doesn’t rip their player base dry and they have no in game cash shop Whats the result? A popular game that makes millions of dollars and has a satisfied player base. .....If Aion offered content for everyone with a subscription model, I guarantee they would make WAY more money than they do now. And have a much higher player base....”but they already had a subscription model before and that didn’t work out”.....ya, because it was already too late to make the switch. Players already left and NC had to make a move to get more players back at the expense of their wallets later on. In other words, as a result of what they are doing now, they are 1- putting everything valuable behind a pay wall 2 - Not giving an incentive for players to come back You have two methods of which players can pay to be good. And its not cheap! What’s the result? You lose players and end up having just a few people fork over their savings to keep the game alive with a huge gap in geared vs non-geared players. Its a shame too. Aion is a great game, but this P2W model won’t go away anytime soon. Not your fault Kibbelz or Loki. I know that. But its too late anyways. People are playing many other games now and Aion has barely any hope of revival even if they did a complete u-turn and make the game fair again. Anyways, thats enough from me. Twas fun while it lasted.
  6. Stigma enchant event catch?

    Wait a second...the NPC needs 15 [BCM] stones for one +9 stigma? If you buy the bundle for 4000 BC Coin, you get 35 normal stones and 15 [BCM] stones... I thought if you bought this pack you could get 3 +9 stigmas because you get 50 total stones. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case. I am wrong here? i was gonna spend a bit on this event at first, but after reading it again, it turns out you get one +9 stigma for 100 bucks because you have to buy the bundle for the 15 BCM stones! If so, what a rip off, and I ain’t spending a freaking dime. Don’t pull something like this and expect us to be blind to it. I hope I’m wrong, but knowing NCSoft and there prices, I doubt it.
  7. Will NCSoft close for COVID 19?

    Ah, ok. Good to know, thanks
  8. Aion Failed to restart (DirectX failed to install)

    You want my advice chief? Well I am going to be honest with you. Don’t give Aion another shot. Save yourself the time, agony, and money and just resort to a different MMO. Aion is so p2w, full of bugs, unbalanced, and barely even supported by NCSoft staff. Count the issue you’re having as a blessing, as its preventing you from starting a long, depressing, expensive, painful journey. And I’m telling this you also as a returning player. I came back to Aion around 6 months ago, and its reduced to pretty much crap. I know we get that urge to come back, but if you do, you’ll probably regret it
  9. Is Aion Dead?

    Is the game dead? Well, I think it isn’t dead yet but the population is slowly dropping. On DN, its hard to find any PVP outside of sieges nowadays (excluding Katalam here because thats cross server). Most people pvp in Katalam, and even with that, I wasn’t finding nearly as much people as I thought I would when I traversed the whole map. If you log on more toward peak times, I guess you may find enough pvp to be satisfied. Outside of that, don’t expect much. I slowed down on the game a lot because nothing really feels rewarding anymore. Especially if you are new, the game will probably be dead by the time you actually get geared. My advice? Don’t start if you expect the population to be thriving as it used to. Even the new Katalam didnt drive as many players back as NCSoft thought, and they don’t even care much for the game anymore. Even if you do come want to come back, don’t plan to get far without spending a pretty penny. With many things nerfed for new players and a lot of people fully geared, you will constantly get destroyed if you don’t pay in this game. And I’m mot talking $100 or $200, I’m talking over $1000 if you want to get anywhere at a decent pace. Its a shame, as Aion used to be a great game and I absolutely loved it back in the day. With the state is in now, its not worth your time and money. I’m not stopping you by any means, as you can try it for free. But once you start the grind and realize how painful and annoying it is, you probably won’t want to stick around long unless you have an extremely large bank account. Just an fyi - most people who pay a ton already: 1. Have upgraded deav skills 2. Have ultimate xforms 3. Have full T2 +15 alrdy 4. Have upgraded stigmas 5. Have grade S minions -Good luck if you come back mate. I wish you the best.
  10. Important Note to NCSoft

    Look at the amount of problems in your game right now: 1. Ever(gone) Canyon 2. Lugbug transfer glitch & Red Katalam 3. Sieges are now PvE focused bec of GP mobs and box 4. No normal kinah gain 5. No normal EXP gain 6. IB bugged and prob will never be fixed 7. Selective retune cost is insane 8. Enchant stone box purchase limited to 5 per week 9. No good costumes on BCM 10. Solutions to feedback are more “lets put item on BCM”.....daev essence, luna for minion vault reset....rather than actually putting in a way for players to earn them in game 11. No stigma protection 12 Daev skill books super slow to obtain and enchant 13. Irrelevant events - face it, we have minimal to no returning players when you anticipated we would have tons with Katalam coming back 14. Dredge is PvE - just collect and leave. Its purpose completely gone 15. Class imbalance 16. No decent enchantment stone gain. 17. Full p2w with Kaisenel becoming OP soon 18. Drop rates poor 19. Most zones that we once enjoyed are gone and could have been re-worked to be utilized well even if it was just for a small event popping every now and then 20. Free-to-play.....more like “free if you want to get pwnd 24/7” Are you going to wake up anytime soon, or do you enjoy watching your game die?
  11. Ok soooo......... From the feedback update, what I can see is: Xforms - pay for kaisenel? since leg xforms are gonna be nerfed this just increases the skill gap. now people who have kaisenel/marchutan are going to roll over anyone unless ofc you pay to get ulti xform Stigma stone safe - pay for more stigma stones at a CHANCE to get +15 stigmas. When theres no safe at +12 MV - Pay for luna resets, get your grade S minion faster.... Daev essence - pay for these, get your ulti skills faster As far as I am concerned, all this does is make people who fork over their wallet even more powerful than people who don't. All I can deduce is make Aion more p2w now. Ever think of adding this stuff in game? Maybe help the players out legitimately and not make the solution "lets put it in the shop." What about EC comp? To benefit the players? Forget that, lets add items to the shop instead. Seriously Ridiculous I'm sure most people will enjoy whipping out their wallets more than they already do to get stronger. Thats a great way to maintain an active players base
  12. Aion: Return to Katalam 7.2 Update Feedback

    Vandals were able to melt people in 2 seconds and technically they still can even with the nerfs. Just ask “yikes” from KT and I’m sure he can show you how OP vandals still are. How about us SMs - look at our fears, which are the primary benefit of our class: -can no longer fear xforms -while feared, your physical and magic def is increased by 1000 now -our insta fear also increases physical and magic def by 1000 while feared But have you heard us complain about it?........ Maybe you should be a little more grateful here that your class is still decent.
  13. Aion: Return to Katalam 7.2 Update Feedback

    The good: 1. Glad Katalam and Danaria are back 2. Vandals needed that nerf, thank you The bad- Please address: 1. Timer in Katalam keeps everyone separated. Please remove and let everyone join so Katalam can be active 24/7 2. Bring siege schedule back to the way it was - 1 per day. Now its just a boring, kill gp mobs, pve, and be done. These aren’t sieges anymore because theres no “siege” feeling. 3. im 100% with zombie on this one. Let us reset the minium vault instance. Right now it takes centuries to farm grade A minium and there really isn’t a way to get it at a decent pace in the game. Either increase the amount of minium gained or let us reset it.
  14. @Cyan, About Vandal skill changes.

    Lol are you complaining because you can’t melt people in 2 seconds now? I’m sorry but if thats too rough for you Get———out———of———-here
