  1. Weekly Server Maintenance - October 14, 2020

    Is it sad that it doesn't really look that great and yet in comparison to what we'll probably get it'll be good? But like, I'm really tired of getting events late and then some dragging on two weeks after it'd be fun. Like I mean, with Anniversary; we got it late, it drags into the middle October, and it's really lame and boring. I'm assuming we get Halloween late too, and about done cooking our Thanksgiving Turkeys before it ends?
  2. Dream World

    This event was definitely a massive ball drop. For 11 coins the machine should've always spit out something useful. Like the Ultimate Potions was not a BAD IDEA but it was executed in such a stingy fashion that it was absolutely insulting. It should've given 5-10 potions a pop, and at a more common drop. Minium was not even a bad drop; but just the amount it gave out was SO worthless. 100 Minium would've been a lot less insulting. Stigma enchants WERE nice but such a rare drop too. The experience extractors was just crappy; the machine should've dispensed experience marks instead, that would've been okay, especially at 5-25 pieces at a time. Legendary Contracts and Ancient contracts should've been in that machine as consolation prizes at very least for not getting that ulti. No one would've been too pissed if they didn't get an ulti so long as they were decently compensated OTHERWISE for their efforts. The whole point of an Anniversary event is for the game and company to be GRACIOUS to your players, and ya'll bungled that to all hell. You turned into a grind fest with all or nothing rewards, largely NOTHING for people who spent a lot of time on this event. It's really crappy. Ya'll are living here in the states and know we're still living in a different time than we did in 2019, lol, more people than ever have LOTS of time for video games because stuff is shut down, this is SUCH an opportunity for game markets to expand and recoup lost players and truly, there are not a lot of decent MMOs out there. As terribly as the decisions made with Aion are, there is still a workable and fun game in there, but NCWest is largely the factor driving away players, not the actual game! People want to play, but ya'lls management is so terrible, that it drives so many players away!
  3. The key box for the 50 songpyeon reward legendary contract was ONLY ever 1 key PER account; in short, and I repeat, you were only ever going to be able to farm 1(ONE) legendary contract for free. The fix with the survey did not change that, so there is no fix to be made to it, so I have no idea why people are so intent on being ignorant after the legendary got given out to everyone for free. This was not an event to farm upteen legendary contracts, it was to give out a pickable contract to catch up some people who have been gated by RNG on at least a legendary contract, and then a very reasonably priced Legendary contract on BCM for all of $15 for one each as well.
  4. Harvest Festival Merchant Issue

    :sigh: This is just really, really sloppy work @Kibbelz, know you're not the one doing the coding but. . . The Producer's Letter was a slap in the face to say that ya'll don't want to kowtow to the 'vocal minority,' when it's more like everyone is sick of it, but they're tired of speaking up and being ignored. This is just the latest mess up. Additionally, the event Lugbug has items on it you can't do. Today asked for us to kill thirty mobs in Katalam. It's Wednesday. Demaha is up. So, we can't get the daily done; I suppose tomorrow Lugbug will want us to kill 30 mobs in Demaha. The point awards are going to be pretty important with the fact that Pine Lover Moon is a solo kill, and the spawns are sporadic and few with many people competing in a very short window. Ya'll wanted us to group up and this is how you do us? Besides the short window, it's at an awkward time for A LOT of people. That's just crappy, it's really frustrating. If it has to be a solo kill, those mobs should be spawning all the time. What's the point of it anyways? There are only so many rice flours we can get unless you really want to spam instances. This is a ridiculous element to the event. Remove it or else make multiple windows. Possibly could be OK if ya'll did every other hour on the mobs to prevent the Gankapalooza that's happening now and also how you're keeping people from even doing the event in multiple ways, but honestly, the only thing worth it in this event IS the legendary selectable, and you can only get it once per account, so let people get their stuff and not be frustrating them. A game is supposed to be fun, not frustrating to this level because of incompetence. Multiple text errors; saying mobs are in Demaha. They're not, they're in Inggi and Gelk; that's terribly confusing for new players being told to go here and there's nothing. This could be a decent, clean event to get people caught up to at least the point of a Legendary Xform that fits their class, but once again it's been bungled. Compensation is due to all players, and things need to be fixed ASAP.
  5. [Event] Event Coins

    The Baron will likely be here until the end of the Anniversary event and the closing of the Vault. His NPC goes with that instance, we just got him early and the instance late. lol. But the event coins are permanent event currency; I expect as lazy as NCsoft is, we might get a change of NPC but the rewards will likely stay the same. Just look at shugo sweep and how they never update that.
  6. Feedback: Event Thread

    I don't know what good it would be to hand out players stigmas they can't advanced. I think a lot of needs to be reworked RNG wise from the bottom up. It's actually easier to +15 a stigma than it is +9 one. It's frustrating as hell; the low RNG rates were fine in 5.8 when +9 was the very top, but now it makes it awful for any new player. I can't get anything beyond +6 on my chanter and I've blown 40 stigma stones on the set that I've had for a chanter since 6.xish. That's absolutely ridiculous. At this point, plussing 1-9 should just be a guaranteed success. Just the accumulation of the mats is time consuming. 9 stigma stones for each stigma, yeah, that's a lot. Freaking adjust it. Same with transformations. 6 whites should always guarantee a green at this point, and 6 greens should always guarantee an ancient. If I had just started playing and had SOMEHOW gathered 40 stigma enchants and failed everyone of them on a +6 stigma and dropped it to ZERO, seriously, I would just uninstall.
  7. GET it together

    All the money to spend on a new computer to play Aion but none of the know how to just simply run Aion in compatibility mode. You said it yourself, it's an older game, most new computers will auto detect which mode of windows will probably run it best.
  8. Weekly Server Maintenance - September 9, 2020

    I'm starting to believe our Anniversary event are the 3x server resets ( and thus instance resets ) we get every week when stuff collapses. But no, really, ya'll this is sad. Like everyone else is saying there's like 6x events running in Europe. Someone please fire who ever is in charge of your marketing because this is just another fumble on ya'lls part. People are staying home a lot more given the current climate and pandemic going on, several of ya'lls competition is going away and people want to play games. This would be an excellent opportunity to bolster your dwindling player numbers if ya'll would just put some decent events out other than the newbie and returning event that while great is still lacking in a lot of regards. NA Aion is literally the biggest pile of squandered opportunities ever. I think you could replace most of ya'lls staff some days with some of Aion's worst players and they would have more clue on how to improve and stabilize this game.
  9. Nightmare coin survey

    All your coins? I think you're speaking a lot of hyperbole right there. The different class thing is definitely BS but other than that, this event is pretty gracious compared to some of the misery in this game. You get a free bundle every day that is account warehouse storeable on each character. If you have returning user, you get double that. I'm getting about 500 coins a day on average minus the surveys, if you don't have returning 250ish a day isn't horrid, it's certainly less work than SAS. The legendary contract isn't even 12k coins, so you could buy the contract with just the survey coins and save the rest for all the other goodies with all the accrued daily bundles transferred to your main or not if you're farming for stigma enchants.
  10. New Launcher but Pin Error not fixed yet?

    To be fair, the 'new' launcher has a very circa 2016 vibe to it like a bad knock off of the Nexon launcher or the like; so knowing NCWest, they've been working on it for years now and they just finally got it half way done! That said; could we have gotten a better splash image on it than Tinyhead McDudeBro while high AF? That art came with 6.x and it's freaking terrible.
  11. Etiums

    Actually, Etiums are something they fixed pretty well. 1, you can now account warehouse them, meaning you can swap them between alts and your main. To actually get them, you want to talk to one of the NPCs that give out the free 80 armor. Windiel I want to say, and he has exchange quests for the experience thingers that lugbug wants you to make 1 of a day, and you can exchange these experience things 10 times a week each for Ultimate Etium, Legendary Etium and Fighting Spirit Fragments. Keep in mind that making one of those experience things ( not the bobo coins, the other one ) grants you a free one a day. So, rather than use that resource on my main, which has uses for renown; I use my alts which I run through luna daily, cannibalize their EXP for the thinger, exchange for ult etium and fighting frags and then put in WH for the main. It's EZPZ.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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?
