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

    You lack reading comprehension. I keep up with a few friends of mine and I couldn't miss out on the tea that was going down on ya'll getting a P2W event during Corona. Half the server got banned from 24hrs to a couple weeks. Plenty of legit players actually got banned but won't admit to it because they're embarrassed. Anyone who would actually pull my logs would see that I didn't abuse squat. Anyone that pulled my logs would see that up to the big bug I was spending luna aplenty on Evergale resets to keep up, because I was a filthy casual trying to be decent, and decent in Aion still requires an arm, leg and your sanity. I've been playing this game since open beta, never been banned even for a chat offense, my credibility is just fine, thank you. This is my first and second post since October when I quit, so mostly I've just popped on to see the drama because Aion drama is the gift that keeps giving, but otherwise, no I'm not one of those Bitter Betty's who post nonstop that they've quit. Sorry for coming here and defending ya'll and saying you have the right to be upset with this company and that the truth is that it's not getting any better and that I feel for ya'll feeling like you're stuck with this garbage. Jeez.
  2. Taking advantage of players in a hard time??

    Ya'll. . . Why are you still here? Please, as someone who used to be just as miserable while at the same time hopelessly ambivalent that NCwest would return this game to some semblance of decency, just please quit. Leave this hot steaming wreck of crap. Stop supporting these people who clearly care nothing about their jobs or player base most especially during this period of awfulness. If you really can't let this wreck die in pieces, go find yourselves a private server that doesn't have atrocious ping. There are better private servers than NA Aion. Getting banned for 24hrs for doing absolutely nothing wrong was the best thing NCsoft did for me. Been playing this game off and on for the get go, never even been banned for running my dumb a$$ mouth on LFG, which I would've taken and giggled over and been like, 'whatever,' but getting banned for their negligence when I wasn't even abusing? Nu-uh. Bye. I actually quit Aion altogether; there are better games out there. No, I haven't found the PVP I like so much, but Warframe is okay and their developers actually give a few s h i t s about their game, unlike NCSoft. The game isn't ruined by RNG mechanics, what few that exist are fine. There's some grind but there's way more goodies along the way. It feels like Christmas every day after the sadomasochism that is Aion. I miss my people and the pvp and that's about it.
  3. EC? More like Endless Crap...

    SOON, it's been almost a month as it is. I've seen geriatrics assemble a whole house in the time it takes ya'll to code one line.
  4. EC? More like Endless Crap...

    How is this post not constructive? People are listing a problem and saying that they are rightfully angry that they are paying for something they're not getting and support and ya'll aren't even giving us a decent excuse at lip service. I bet you'd toss a fit too, Cyan, if your burrito maker forgot to put the guac that costs extra on your burrito, right? Support gave me the same BS. Ask to talk to someone above and take post a picture of some Karen with the let me speak to your manager hairdo or something. But yeah, it's 100% constructive for us to say you're taking our money and not giving us what we were promised, but gosh, if we did a charge back, we'd perma-banned. It's strange how NCsoft can't function like regular net merchants like Ebay or Paypal, or ffs, Amazon, that when you buy a product, and it's not as advertised, you get your money back. It's called customer service. If ya'll cared, you'd be sending us out 3 free pickable instance passes for non-prestige holders, and 6 free pickable instance passes for prestige holders a week in the meanwhile to at least placate us for a major loss of content. It would be THAT easy to keep everyone happy if the problem was THAT bad. Which it isn't. Just turn off the kick feature and return it. Because that's going to be the fix anyways, so this song and dance that ya'll going to actually fix something is a lie. How's that for constructive?
  5. 3 Weeks W/out Evergale Canyon

    I urge every prestige user to write support and ask for a refund for their prestige. It's literal theft; because that's how many promised resets we're not getting? Do it. If they say no the first time, follow up with a new angry letter, and ask for someone above them. Ask for a senior support member and clearly communicate how fed up you are with paying for things you're not getting. Additionally, complain that the rewards are out of date. Complain enough, and you'll get a refund. Did it with the AP bug. Took quite a bit of channeling my inner Karen, but it worked and maybe it'll give them a good kick in the pants to disable the kick function, and return it, because you know that's what they're gonna do. Lol.
  6. @Cyan

    You can't punish people for NCsoft's incompetence, and you certainly can't take away stuff that's potentially been purchased with real money when the company has a bad track record of actually being able to keep track of what people are or aren't doing. It won't work. It's not feasible and it's not fair because it's so hard to prove except in a few certain instances like PhantomMentalDingus. Ncsoft always claims its glitches are working as intended when it forks its players over, but never when it's in the benefit of the players; and so much has been nerfed this patch, including the event, that any sort of taking away of anything more, even if they precisely deploy it ( which they won't, don't be silly ) is going to be horrible for morale. Send out a survey with a pile of Etium; apologize for instances and sieges not giving it out, and do whatever to fix EC ( probably just remove the kick, because they can't actually fix anything the right way ) and be done. Punishing players will accomplish nothing in general.
  7. @Cyan

    They're not purposely making it hard, they're just bad at their jobs and don't have instances giving out the right stuff. KBF gives blood marks; it's supposed to give out the same styled rewards as EC. HM is not giving out Ulti Etium, and nor is Siege. You have some 10ish ( 5x HM, 1x KBF, 3x Lakrum Siege, 1x Divine Siege ) opportunities to gain Ultimate Etium that we are not getting. Additionally, the drops on the mobs is such crap for any mats that crafting is ????????????????? right now. If not for this event, I think most people would be in trouble. I think after this event that Etium will not be what people are crying about. Kinah and fighting fragments are going to hurt soon. I spent all my 6.x farmed kinah on coins before they nerfed the event because that writing is on the wall. As I said, the best strategy for NCsoft is to send a survey out with a massive pile of Etium. Trolled.
  8. @Cyan

    Here's a novel idea: Make Etium an entirely irrelevant material. It eventually will be anyways. Send out a Survey with 500 Ulti and Legendary Etium to every player. Problem solved. Ridium, its previous iteration, fell from the sky like candy and was never the reason anyone couldn't purify. Make Etium the same way. Problem solved. The abusers feel silly, the good children feel vindicated and yeah. Here's the thing; right now there are instances and sieges that are SUPPOSED to be giving Ultimate Etium out, so people are frustrated and bottlenecked by a stupid mat that's supposed to be the Give-me mat in the game. Fighting Spirit Frags and Stones are supposed to be the bottleneck, and even those are kind of ridiculous but that isn't a problem with 7.x, it's a problem of the 6.x-7.x generation of Aion in general. And of enchantment stones? Oh gosh, people farmed/abused EC for 70 extra ancient pvp stones. Holy shit, they can't even +15 an ancient piece with that. ROFL.
  9. Weekly Server Maintenance - June 19, 2019

    @CyanI'm going to echo others on the xparent scrolls. Glad to see them, but they really should be the same price as the regular ones. The transparent scrolls do not change any function on the game besides visual, so please tell the devs to stop holding out on us. Maybe have Marketing talk to the Devs and tell them how much aesthetics are a key reason why so many play this game, and forcing people to spend extra money on what has always been a given in this game has really chased away a lot of money for this game. I'm fine to see a nerf of the luna exchange; we'd like to see NCsoft make some money, after all. But that said, please we need things worth buying in the BCM. People DO want to spend, they just want stuff to buy that's worth it. My first request! Please put the housing expansion coupon/tickets back in. I haven't been able to decorate my house properly because it's unavailable and it's a cheapy but a goody we do love in BCM. Tell someone to add it back in.
  10. About the Steel Rake Fortress event...

    Uhmmmmmmm! People keep saying you don't need a lot of gear to participate in this one, and others keep crying they're left out and they have fresh new toons *so suddenly* and I'm like. . . It is easy. My ranger is 100% questionable and I'm getting 9-10 keys every go with her. No problem. If you don't have at least CoE gear, I honestly don't know what to tell you. I have three different toons that can solo CoE and I often shove 2 alts with each of them when I'm a glutton for punishment and I am *that* bored, so at this point, I have three different toons, one is full red, and the two are a full mix of red and pink but mostly unenchanted, but I have 8-10 alts now in full CoE. . . No, you probably won't get the full rewards, that's okay, the prices aren't terribly heinous for once(but are extremely limited in what you can buy), but I actually like that this one isn't as friendly to the alt spam. It means I don't have to live for this boring instance event. All I'm doing is my ranger and my sin, and that's because the EXP is so good. Got to fuss at those gems. X_X If you have CoE gear or better and you're struggling, I guess I have to say that the gear is likely not your problem. . . You might be the problem. Vantheria posted some wonderful suggestions, particularly about dps'ing the minibosses, and particularly about overcoming life as a chanter. So, maybe listen and try instead of cry. It's not an awesome event, by no means, but I'm going to get a permamount on my ranger, and some misc things on my sin, but I'm most excited by all the gems I'm going to be making for enchants, because that's where I've been struggling. BUT! @Cyan Ya'll really put voidsoul accessory boxes in this one? Really? That's so lame. Ya'll could've least put the legendary frostspark instead if this was really gonna be aimed for the ungeared.
  11. Weaving in 6.5?

    I mean, unless you're using stigma atk skills to pad out the number of skills you have to use, and thus sacrificing other things, there is NO way you're not running out of skills with a sustained attack chain if you're not weaving. I see this thread is in PVP, so maybe then? But I still weave all the time, during pvp, pve, etc, and yeah, I'm a high dps, max atk speed sin and there are brief moments in IDD where I am getting down to the wire on what skills I have to use that are not rune bursts, so I'm calling BS if you're gonna tell me you only weave with devotion up during IDD, PF, etc. PVP is the only vaguely viable reason I can see not to weave, but you are not going to chew through templars, chanters, clerics and other tanky crap by blowing your load and not weaving. 8D And that said, the guy in the video is in a full set of pink gear with not even 2k crit, with dual dagger ( which is not a bad idea for the initial gear grind to full red, but dagger + sword is still the way to go if you have reasonable ping and decent gear plus a decent xform ) and not maxed out atk speed. He is clueless what weaving looks like when you're plus the 4k mark of crit. Even 3k is going to look a world apart from this, and toss in max atk speed? It's pretty much auto-weaving at that point, especially if your ping is low. I feel like you would have to try harder not to weave than to weave if you're really atk speed capped. 8D And I still weave on my ranger too, the DPS is better with weaves than not, and again, you.will.run.out.of.skills.
  12. aion is dying

    It's not about innovation, it's about companies not listening to their players. The market is currently saturated with 'active combat' system MMOs and I think most of us who play Aion hate those types of games. If you want tab target like we have with Aion and some semblance of what your character can do, your options are very limited. GW2 has a painfully simple combat system that I found highly restrictive even though the build sets up WERE interesting, but ultimately MEH. WoW there is only so many times you can re-packaged a ( badly ) aging MMO short of a 100% graphical overhaul which could likely shoot yourself in the foot because I know many players for WoW do play on aging PCs, and then you have Aion. Aion is not losing business because of flagging interest. Aion is losing money due to bad decisions in the direction of the game, the marketing, and negligence overall of the company to not take care of it. Aion is literally a cash mine of missed opportunities. It's an old ass game, and yet it's held up and looks super good for its age, the things that could be done with just optimization and fixing the engine issues or hell, just develop a new engine entirely alone. . . Only NCSoft deleted 75% of their game and thought we'd still want to play. I mean, you don't think people want to play? Okay, so there's a private server ( not saying I play it or not ) that at their slow times has 400 people on it. At high times, there's 1300. The server is patched to 2.5. SO yeah, people want to play Aion, this game, currently? Is not Aion. I work in a business that's very intensely about customer satisfaction, marketing, and how to actually run a business. It hurts to know, with 100% certainty, that you could do some of these people's jobs at NCWest 500% better and maybe do a little ( a lot ) better in retaining players with the plate of crap that NCEast has delivered.
  13. aion is dying

    I tried to be as positive as I could with 6.x but I dreaded update day, I knew it was going to be horrible, and it has delivered on that on every regard. And I have to say that as far as some people's luck have gone, I haven't done horribly by this patch, but I just absolutely hate the state of the game. One thing I considered is the fact 6.x is the first KR update to be F2P, which is why 5.x and previous 'pay walls' have been half-arsed at best and circumventable. But seriously, deleting 70% of your game and its mechanics was a good idea? What???? I just don't get the 5.x hate, I had a great time for the most part. Yes, the initial grind to 75 was overdone, but by the time 5.6-5.8 came around, the leveling was much smoother and there was still TONS to do before you got to 75. The PVP open world could be a bit lackluster; that could've been fixed with better objectives in Norsvold and Iluma, perhaps a fort in each, I dunno, but throwing the whole thing in the fire seemed a bit extreme, especially since either of those maps were larger than Lakrum and far more detailed. The PVE was excellent, instances were actually challenging because they had mechanics, and weren't gear gated. Everything in 6.0 is easy if you have gear to tank and spank everything. 5.x was actually an expensive patch, beautiful to look at and take in, with tons of content, whereas. . .where's the content in 6.x? Where is the money? Everything is recycled. Every texture in Lakrum is reused from somewhere else. 6-7x gears are all mostly chop ups of old armors and skins repasted and frankensteined together. I mean, FFS, I'd rather have to do Fissure of Oblivion every day again if it meant getting back a semblance of actual Aion versus whatever the heck this game is supposed to be now.
  14. aion is dying

    That's an absolute lie. It was never an issue finding parties for PVP instances in 5.x, even before merge. As someone who was used to going single or duo, yeah, it was easy then, now there's maybe 1-3 lfg group per time hour if even. People QQ about 5.x, but it was miles beyond the steaming crap that is 6.x. At least there was stuff to do, there were nice places to go to, you could see what the hell your toon looked like, and you could get around every pay wall in the game if you had 2 or 3 braincells to rub together.
  15. Free Transfer Off EK to DN!!

    Well, I would appreciate being able to xfer my EK alt that I made only to dork around with to the server I actually play on. And I know some people are on the same boat. Their mains are on DN, so ofc they would want that alt shifted there because THEN IT MIGHT HAVE SOME USE in the future, whether event or turn into their main or a main alt or the like. I know absolutely no one on KT, and I have no reason to play it there. I have use of another alt ( Someone say, "Shavera, why do you need ANOTHER assassin alt???? ) on my home server. Events likely, yea, but still useful. It's BS to be forced to go to KT. There's not that many people on EK to really have an effect on either server, especially when most of them were previous KT or DN players who have/had mains on those servers already and will go back to that server no matter what. Or they will just quit versus having to work and gear another toon because they're not gong to pay what is quite frankly a ridiculous amount of money just to change a toon's server. So, the net gain is better to let people pick where they want to go versus nyerk them off any further. I've played this game forever, and I've SOMEHOW stuck around since 6.x, which, IMO, this patch has been horrible, even if it were correctly executed, just the amount of loss we have had in-game, whether it be maps, instances, lore, places to go, etc, is pretty awful. I'm really starting to feel the game should have been canceled before 6.x. 5.x even in it's poor execution was a way better game then this steaming pile. I'm about done with it, I can't imagine people who have been effed over even worse ( and there are plenty ).
