  1. Glory Points Reset & Seasons

    ------------------ If you guys want to be productive, go vote here lets make it viral and lets tell the publisher we want a real ranking list, not a way for p2w people to get on top.
  2. Glory Points Reset & Seasons

    3 days, 2 free IB per day = 6 days right when I wrote this comment for my total of 736 GP or something... oh my god stop replying! you make yourself look worse. This is the 4th day since reset and I am about to do my 2x free IB, for a total of 8 free IB so far! Also siege is over I got 64 GP only since rewards are bugged and went from 12th place to 8th. And I am about to get 50 more Gp from the two new free IB I have. …and no I didn't want luna resetting instances to give GP, I was hoping and still am only siege can give GP. Our 1st slot wouldn't be there if it was like this. Resetting GP every month is still the right thing to do, what they have to change is the ability to pay to get GP. Do you ever read what people write? Did you want a ranking system where people p2w their EB ranks and then they were locked so people could afk-ranks? Because this is what you were advocating for. ~~~~ Next attacking siege I will get more GP than many p2w people.
  3. Glory Points Reset & Seasons

    ….also this ...my today GP from siege was 64 from killing those few guards that spanwed, also no reward box (we lost the siege, I should get 120 GP with prestige and a box). No pay to win for that either.
  4. Glory Points Reset & Seasons

    No I didn't because I got 314 GP from attacking guards, 300 GP from winning the siege and like 150 GP from the 6 free IB I have every day or something. 1st day I had 50 GP, 2nd day I had 50 GP +the rest, before siege I was in 34th place or something, after siege I was 6th, a few days later and without a siege, I am 12th and Luck is back to 1st place, he surely resetted with luna. Learn how to play the game. that 324 gp I got from that siege was too little, BEFORE the reset (and after guards started giving GP), I once got more than 1k in one day. I noobed on our first siege and I promised I wont do that again, and I also promise to take screenshots from every siege I do so people like you learn how the game is played actively. Here, this is from a siege right before the reset Aly, you have 2376 posts Every time people complained about a bug, you were there to consolidate them and reassure them this game will always have bugs When people complained about injustices you were there to slap them and tell them this is how the game is and always was When people suggested to the suggestion section, you went there to tell them to stop suggesting because the game is good as it is and even if we suggest something it won't change (the GP reset proved you wrong and many more things) when people blasted the game for everything wrong you were the NCSoft lawyer and supported every shitty decision hey took. ...and here you are now, 2376 posts later, proving to everyone you are not even playing the game. I bought my rank? I did 0 luna resets. Don't hold your breath, learn how to play the game. ...of course you didn't know, you do not play in our server and you were so happy just to "point out" that you wanted to blast me with a p2w accusation, let me tell you I play from Greece, aka poor, and I cannot afford to pay 1~2 $ for potential of 10 or 25 GP for IB resets! I wont' do it I saved your quote for last because I really wanted to simply git gud in your face. people purchased ranks from EB but you wre happy because apparently you di that as well people got a ton of GP from 5.8 even when they failed People afked in coalition and you loved it People could rest afk in walls in 6.2 just to keep their rank and you thought it was the right thing ...now you have to compete and you call me a p2w This GP reset was literally the best thing ever, so many people shouldn't even be able to lay the game due to mental retardation but they were even ranked because the system gave them the ability to rank just by logging in and now people have to compete. My reply to you:
  5. Glory Points Reset & Seasons

    Arenas should give GP and they should have a slightly smaller window to play so people cannot pre-plan those to team with their own alts. Maybe make them pop every 5 minutes sharply for everyone. Example, whoever applies from 12:00:00 to 12:04:59 would get a pop at 12:05:00 whoever applies from 12:05:00 to 12:09:59 would get a pop at 12:10:00 ...and so on this way everyone would get a pop at the same time and within these 5 minutes enough people will apply so the system can decide who gets with whom based on the points already existing.
  6. Weekly Server Maintenance - April 24, 2019

    That would be amazing to get, I would dedicate myself into getting the legendary this way on all my account chars for sure
  7. Glory Points Reset & Seasons

    I love the monthly reset because it is the right thing to do. I was hoping arenas would give GP. Or maybe only sieges and be it. Arenas would be more reasonable to give GP than luna resetting instances, it is pure pvp and something could be done to avoid people timing themselves with their alts to always win. If there are people willing to pay a ton of money to be on top ranks every month then I guess their pockets will be full of money and NCSoft will be happy. Monthly reset of ranks = best decision ever Luna resets for GP = wrong @Cyan
  8. Glory Points Reset & Seasons

    The current state of the game is because it was unfair and allowed people to take advantage of the liberty to be tyrants in the game. Back in the days were holding a fortress actually DID matter to the faction and the legion who owned the fortress got benefits. You didn't play in my server Siel to know then I guess. I love how some legions during 6.2+ demanded from Incoming legion to be handed the fortress to them because they also wanted it and because "you always get it, don't be selfish", and then Incoming tried to give it to them and couldn't. The only way other legions could get the fortress is for Incoming not to go to siege (and thus we lose because they are the power of the siege) or "GIT GUD" and be better than incoming and do more contribution than them. Right now NOBODY can complain one legion continuously gets the fotress, because with the current system, they actually deserve it. This is the least pve friendly GP acquisition ever, and the least afk friendly, it is only in siege and there are enemies of the whole enemy faction there fighting you while you have to kill dux and guards. Right now siege is nothing but an event race for mats and rank, owning a fortress isn't benefiting the faction at all, except the legion who rightfully got it from doing the most dps on dux (they have some npc that sells them items with legion coins in insane prices). There are no artifacts worth popping now to win the battle except on Divine which actually do something and that siege lasts 5~10m even on dead servers because it is a pve-only race, you do not claim the fortress from the enemies, but always re-capture it from balaur. When a siege gives you no benefits of owning the fortress why do people act as if they "care for the faction"? There is nothing you can win more about taking a fortress. And it is the same for everyone. You want more power to fortresses like in the past, lets suggest this. Discipline Arenas Ranks, Harmony Arena ranks, GP acquisition per month, Ranking system... these all are based on a monthly race. Whoever wants to race on it, can do so. Those poor veterans won't know how to dps some guards now because all veterans focus on how to benefit the faction in a siege that doesn't benefit the faction at all. That is some virtue signaling from a to z there! The only ones that WILL lose the rank are those that stood immobile on the walls while leeching contribution to keep their rank, those are also who stayed afk during coalition and everyone in high ranks now got a ton of GP from pve means as well because it was possible in the past. Whoever is there and attacks people and guards will be going upwards. Killing guards takes literally 1~2 seconds because they die so easily from the amount of people and forcing yourself to the other side to get more guards means you need to run through the enemy faction in your way. It effectively makes the whole fortress siegable now, you don't just run into the dux and kill it for GP, you care to go claim the whole fortress killing ALL guards while you face the enemy faction attacking you. The more I think of it, the better it is. Spread your whole attacking faction in the whole fortress to kill all guards and kill dux last (Dux spawnes much later). This is pvp everywhere fighting for pve resources. It is simply amazing. If a soloer can survive better than a group of dps+buffers+healers then I guess the group does something totally wrong. If 6-people in a group attack 1 guard and a soloer does more dmg to that guard... then some people really need to rethink what they are doing wrong.
  9. Glory Points Reset & Seasons

    No fortress was ever capture just by doing pvp, every fortress was captured by killing the fortress boss. This has been since the very beginning of sieges (since you said you play for a long time). Meanwhile in the past a legion could have 10 people only, doing almost nothing, but they were into the right politics and could get a fortress at the expense and contribution of the other legions. These types of politics ruined the game back in Danaria and Katalam sieges where big legions refrained from going to a siege, hoping the faction will lose so they show those politic elites that they need to be taken into consideration. This gave weird royal status to a few people that were affiliate with the right other people. I remember when Iczel was governor and people listened to him, he benefited a few people "giving" them fortresses while they didn't do the most job. I remember there was a time Bandulu was having all fortresses and they weren't event he most populated legion. It is just their leader was(and still is) a girl and some people gave her more space to do what she wanted. Now on the other hand, the largest legions and the most geared ones are those that can cap a fortress and claim it under their name, and that is fair, because the more people a legion has and the more geared they are the more contribution they do. Lets not create a strawman where one legion does nothing and only dps dux to get the fortress while everyone else is pvping. In my server/faction, Incoming is always capping the fortresses because they have the most activity and geared people, and they deserve it. Some other legions even demanded to get the fortress one time too and they told Incoming legion to get into their league hoping it still works like the old times... guess what, Incoming still got the fortress. This new system is like a big "git gud" to everyone's face and it is the best edit they ever did.
  10. Glory Points Reset & Seasons

    I have been playing since 2012 or something here (I came from EU when they sold it to GF). You mean back in the days the leading person would grant the fortress to his legion even if his legion wasn't the best contributor? Guess what... there was politics because of that, people who made pacts with other legion would round robin the fortresses between themselves. NOW on the other hand the legion that does the most contribution, solo or in group/alliance/league gets the fortress. I understand people not liking it because they cannot simply get handed a fortress just because they had the lead of the league, but the legion who actually work are those who benefit. Every patch had its own bad things about the ranking, ever since ranking was implemented THIS is the single best change they ever did.
  11. Glory Points Reset & Seasons

    ...there we go again about those imaginary new people or those poor ungeared refugees we all need to help. If you see the arena ranks, you will see plenty of those "support" classes be on top lists, you know why, because they can survive their own and dps good enough, please in Aion every class is a dps. Everyone can solo if they want and those that can support themselves with heals and buffs are better at this. Whether I log for a siege or not, whether I go in a group or solo is literally my business. When you join a group/alliance and afk then THAT affects the people that carry you. When you join a group and you are not trying hard, then THAT is affecting them. New players or ungeared people cannot expect to get carried, nobody carried me. The fact I was always solo disproves your whole rhetoric about those ungeared, nobody carried me anywhere or helped me gear up, when I was ungeared... I was ungeared and had to gear up to be a competitive player. And I kept trying solo and I did it. I owe nothing to anyone for my gear. IF SOMEONE relies on a legion to get geared, relies on other people to get geared and gets carried to do so, and then starts soloing when he gets geared... then yes that is a bad attitude. But I was always solo since day 1, I am in my own legion to get the extra legion wh space and to avoid being invited in legions. I already know people who did this, got loot rights on all pve gear and then left the legion. This i a bad attitude. You know when I personally quit? when coalition was on, because I was forced to play a specific communist-style siege where everyone get thrown into one league with people I never knew, with people that were afk and we got same rewards no matter someone's effort or no effort at all. --- can a new player or an ungeared one go in IDD, or demand to get included in a geared group because other wise they will quit? Nope, you gotta first do Mirash and Coe, get your ancient gear, then do your FM and BoS, get your legendary gear, and then you go to IDD and PF to get your ultimate gear, so at last you can go to Veillenthrone. Everyone can go to a siege and will get the rewards based on their effort on spot on the siege and also the amount of work they put on their characters to gear up.
  12. Glory Points Reset & Seasons

    the dps you do while in a group is shared in the group, dropping after this makes them lose that I think. so they have to drop right when they go to dux, and dps alone. But as you clearly and rightfully stated, those that drop just before dux only to get more points, refuse to get them in for buffs and heals at start. You either stick with the group or you go total solo from the start. If you go solo you get the potential to get more rewards as long as you stay alive, if you go with a group you will get heals and buffs and surely survive more giving you the ability to last more and thus contribute more for those more rewards.
  13. What the BOT?

    ..bots are beneficial to the botters, if you bot you benefit from it. If you do not bot you are literally racing in resources against a program that can farm 24/7, never gets bored, doesn't have to sleep, has no other real life job other than grinding ingame and doesn't have children to feed. Kinah sinking in the game is a real thing, but you do not fix this with bots, because most of them are kinah sellers or people that use them to their advantage. Bots would have been "beneficial" if it was allowed and thus everyone did it. I have a friend who used to manually farm guiding stones to get money from broker sales, but then he realized it was no longer profitable because bots dropped the prices so much that him, grinding for 1~2 hours per day like he used to is not profitable anymore, due to the bots overflowing the market with an abundance of mats.
  14. Glory Points Reset & Seasons

    I never did coalition siege (except like 3~4 times until I understood what it was), because everyone had like 10 alts there and I had to do the job for them. I refused to go into any alliance now for sieges because of the higher-than-me ranks in the alliances that stayed afk in the walls. I asked people to kick afkers but everyone was mad at me because afkers are not aliens... they are alts of the same people who make those alliances and advocate for additional afk people. I also already said that luna resettable instances shouldn't give GP because this would be a real pay-to-rank mode. My game play solo or not is defo not your business and it is the only thing nobody can complain, afking in a mass event like Pandora is an issue, afking in EC is an issue, going solo in anything is literally not your business. I am not relying on anyone's work other than mine. I have already spoke with some good friends of mine to team up after the reset to maximize both our survivability and GP rewards... but that is again none of your business. I have soloed my gear, soloed most of my game play so far because this is my gameplay. Listen to yourself, you complain that someone is self reliant and doesn't want to get carried nor wills to carry anyone. ----------- People drop before they start dpsing dux not before it dies. Who are these people, black list them and never team with them again I guess. ---------- How long have you been around Aion? GP was ALWAYS a race until they decided to throw coalition in and then turn it stale in 6.2. If you were glad in the coalition days where sieges were an afk feast why are you complainign that everyone iwll have to be in turbo mode now trying intensely to kill the most amount of enemies and guards to get higher in rank? You really think that sieges now will not be intense? In my server/faction, teamwork never managed to win us a fortress. It was always a matter of siege buff and the amount of people that showed up (at least after 6.2)
  15. Glory Points Reset & Seasons

    And you also "cashed" on that permanent rank for many years from rewards, anking status, social status etc, nothing to complain here, that rank had a few years worth of expiration, it now has a monthly expiration. Show up again and you will be rewarded just like you have been rewarded all these years. We got our kinah reduced, our items rendered "useless" in every patch because we kept getting new levels and new gear... we cannot complain, we played with those items for the time they were relevant, time to re-gear, to re-level, to re-rank. The rank you worked for was enjoyed by you for the time it lasted, and it lasted a long time. The problem isn't just EB, in 5.8 you could get like 100k GP per month if you did everything and you won a lot, because GP was everywhere and there were GP rewards for other ranking types etc. People cannot get that many GP per month now, the list was practically locked. PvE instances gave a lot of GP, coalition made people go in, afk and get rewards. If there is at least 1 person in the ranks because of this abuse, then it had to be fixed. I saw people being on the walls currently in Lakrum fortress, being high ranked, and I learned they are from Europe (like me) and because siege is in 5~6 in the morning they gave their chars to their friends just to log them in for the siege to keep their ranks. These people will be gone. I have to be awake at 6 in the morning now to go to siege and 3 in the morning for Weekend sieges. ...the way you get GP now is flawed and the fact guards can give you tons of GP (again pve) is flawed. Guards should give you max 10 GP per guard just to justify killing those and max GP should be given by pvp (and obviously the fortress boss which is pvpve), it would be better if max GP for the best contribution in pvp would be like 1000 GP and would get progressively less, this way people would focus on pvp instead of pve to get the big GP profit. I belong to those that cheer this change not because I want ME to be a transform, I love that the game finally becomes competitive constantly and those afkers in the walls won't get to keep their top 20 rank or something. I am clinging between 5-star and 4-star (mostly 4-star) and I might even end up much lower than what I currently am but that means I deserve to be lower if that happens. There will be people finding new ways to abuse this ranking but at least they can't work for some time and then resort into afking because they did their job and they don't have to work anymore. I agree pve-GP from siege should be different, but that is another issue. The monthly GP race is the single best change they ever implemented in Aion after all these years of people asking for it. They make people stay alerted to earn their rank and actually have something to "brag" about because now being high ranked means you just stuck around for a longer period of time than others and did enough pvp and pve to accumulate that.
  16. Pandora entry + naked alts

    there I fixed it for you. I never understood why that bug bugged you so much.
  17. Pandora entry + naked alts

    I never spoke against people who are mains but ungeared, only those that afk or those that put their alts to cash more rewards against the real players. I'll let you be the afk-friendly worthless player you are, you are the reason this game goes downhills. UYou guys love locked ranks, pve-afk-friendly ranks, afk possibility in everything WITH rewards. If anything, I personally am better than you in playing the game because I actually play it instead of afking it. --- Also to do the Ad Hominem attack you at least need to be better, you are the one who lowers everything in your game just because you enjoy being sleazy, enjoy afk and always invoke those imaginary "new ungeared players" that need our help so we all need to shut up about your afk alts ruining this game. You are like those SJW, creating a strawman to hit so they can pretend they are good and defend the weak ones. You are just defending yourself.

    [Event] Aether Bloom is from another event and [Event] Aether Blossom as well. These Aether Blossoms have not [Event] in front and are a different type
  19. Glory Points Reset & Seasons

    ah ok i only saw asmodians thanks
  20. Siege schedule Time

    I also play from Europe and the times are kinda harsh and I only acknowledge the schedule is meant for USA players thus they will not even consider us. There are people who play from East Asia and Australia, people from Europe and USA so we have people from all time zones. I still wish the times were better especially during weekend, it is 3 in the morning now, the everyday sieges are at 6 in the morning, which makes me an early bird
  21. Glory Points Reset & Seasons

    EXACTLY, because no mater how better I am next to that AFKTolerance for example, she is still like pretty high, no matter how afk she is in the league, she still has her rank because all she cares is to afk enough to keep the locked rank. If I end up much lower than what I currently am then I guess I deserve it. I get 300 GP at EVERY siege, thanks for pointing my rank. So what is your rank, there was no Vessttemona in the ranks
  22. Glory Points Reset & Seasons

    link me the thread, I will support it, I hope it has a poll because polls help the overall outcome better
  23. Pandora entry + naked alts

    ...you obviously missed the point where I speak of alts.. and 30k HP. you are defending those so far. I do not care if someone is in legendaries and does pandora pve, but to do the pvp if you are not ready to kill elyos then what are you doing in there? ...pandora pvp. You go in there with your ungeared people and try to beat the enemies. I am defo not there with my pvp ultis +15 trying to win an unfair fight because some ungeared people want me to carry them. Go ahead and do your thing in pandora pvp, It is over for me.
  24. Glory Points Reset & Seasons

    ...but but... but he "worked" for that. He deserves to be permanently in the ranks. Everyone need to enjoy the fact that to be on high ranks you have to be active and try to be there and qualify for it. Whoever doesn't like it is the reason thsi game was going downhills and was abused by people buy all means. there will still be people that will buy their ranks (if it is possible to get GP from luna-resettable instances) and it will be fixed liek they did on other publishers, but we are going towards a fair competitive Aion right now. you earned that "right" while it was working like this, you also enjoyed that rank for a big amount of time. You enjoyed your rank while it was an AP thing, as long as you tried about it You enjoyed your locked GP rank up until now If you want to enjoy the new ranking system you gotta be active permanently, the moment you decide to slack other people who are more active will take the ranks that are highly needed for the siege. ...but lets be honest, you love being in a locked ranking list because there is nobody in the high ranks that didn't benefit from pve-GP and you are scared you wil have to compete in the real pvp thing. If you want to be in the ranks, earn it now. ------- I earnerd my right to have a 300 profession on my toons and it was deleted, I earned my right to have items that I worked hard for, but in every patch we get new better ones and we all have to start again. Once you win an olympic medal, you keep that medal as a memoir but you are not awarded a medal every year just because you participated for many years. To get the golden medal you have to be first on that specific race, if not you lose rank for that race.
  25. Pandora entry + naked alts

    You are asking for those geared people to carry those ungeared in pandora so those ungeared will gear up. This is what you did. My problem is with 30k HP alts entering a pvp instance full of enemies with ulties +15 and expect to get rewards they didn't work for. If we win it is not because they were there, their presence there is a burden to win to being with, so if we win... they are being "magically" given rewards they did not work for. I am running pandora for the cubicles to do the Veilenthrone. Once I am done with cubicles I will not even bother with it again, the additional rewards do not even worth it. Yesterday I decided never to go to Pandora pvp again, 4 out of 5 times we lose and we have 30k HP alts contributing ONLY to the loss of our side. I will do my pandora pve only and it will be enough, I have alts in my main account that are in legendary geared, hence good enough for the pve and I can do cubicles with them too. Every char in my account can give me 2x pve quests per week, that is better than going in pandora pvp and lose because of ungeared people. Let those lakrum geared people you defend so much go alone in pandora pvp and gain nothing and maybe realize that to compete in an end game pvp instace you need to at least be geared to actually kill the enemies instead of relying to the geared people to carry you so you can cash and roll on those ulti manastones. For me Pandora pvp is over, I cannot waste my time entering a highly geared pvp instance with enemies that even cheat or are in full +15 ulti, only to lose because our side has plenty of lowbies who want to get carried and do not understand that it is impossible and also losing in pandora= 0 rewards. So far in all pandoras I did I got 0 ultimate manastones, because no matter my contribution, those pesky 30k HP afk alts are rolling for those and plenty of them are getting them.
