    I find it disengenius that you focus on bots as a key reason people left the game, ignoring the litany of things I listed above that really are more impactful than bots:

    One of the many reasons the population is too low is the bot themselves though. Bots in general create a problem that make people quit and now they are the important part of the game because nobody plays except for bots.

    Even if you do remove the bots now (or the p2w cash shop) the game won't revive and actual players won't come back because damage is already done.

    I find it disingenuous that you put words into my mouth as if I said that bots are the key reason. It is one of many reasons.

    And mark my words, if we didn't have all the other NCWest affiliated bad things, bots would still be problem, and probably the sole problem.

    ~~

    If the game was alive the bots wouldn't be "necessary" to provide materials but they would still be here and they would control the market as they do now, people would still quit the game because of bots. It is ONE OF THE REASONS.

    Bots are part of the problem (PART of the problem, not THE PROBLEM). And that problem is self serving. It makes everyone stop trying to compete against them and then they are the sole suppliers of everything.

    ~~

    There were many people that said they didn't care about cash shop because they can still gather, and craft and make profit by selling their loot. Where are they now? They can't do that because whatever drop or craft you make, there are 100 bots that will do it more effectively and cheaper.

    ~~

    Bots also make cash shop by the company obsolete, the company no longer makes money from candies for example. They lose money from those few that stayed even with the p2w tactic. They will eventually need to come up with another p2w that brings revenue that bots can't farm and that means exclusive and niche items.

    @MechEagIe-DN @Arhangelos isn't that what they are already doing?

    Nope, they have a ton of limitations to our version.

    We get half the patches and not all the upgrades. In KR people already walk around with paragon gear sets with the right stats, they have all transformation collections, we don't even have the ancient ones that give +5000HP. Autohunt is integral to the game and is taken into consideration the amounts required to do things thus they are insanely high, but we do not have auto hunt and the few edits we got to address that were temporary and got reverted back to the official rates.

    We got some events that required us to kill 1500 mobs per day to get a petty reward. We never got the number lowered etc.

    I understand they won't deal with the game and if this is the case from now on we better get the REAL aion and if w have any issues we can only blame KR developers instead of the local people that don't even runt he game anymore.

    Greetings Daevas!

    The Aion Servers will be undergoing their regularly scheduled maintenance tomorrow at 6am Server Time (4am PT / 7am ET / 12pm UTC). We expect the downtime to last for approximately 4 hours, and it will implement the following:

    • Login Reward Event Begins (more details on this soon)
    • Bonus EXP weekends begin. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

    We will be publishing a poll later this week to seek your opinion on Auto-Hunt in the open world.

    Thank you!

    Finally the XP on weekends is implemented.

    As for the poll, I will trust nothing on your decisions for custom implementations on NA from now on. I am sorry but our good will is depleted.

    A special map for auto hunt only seems like a bug infested cesspool that will never be addressed once implemented with a myriad of errors that will defo exist.

    At this point I vote to simply translate the game and publish it and copy all the events KR gets.

    I completely understand that, but to be honest, as a buyer, I don't think I really care. I outlined that our population is too low for their profit to be worth my spending anyway. I know that sounds harsh, but if the population had been higher to begin with I wouldn't mind as much. I know you'll say that them leaving lowered population, but it was too low before that for their listings to really compete anyway.

    There's other reasons to play Aion, and soley leaning on crafting, knowing that Aion has always had a high bot population through the ages, was something of a mistake on their part. Again, sounds harsh, but it's a necessity. Plus, bots also help with cheaper matt production, it wasn't a total loss/loss for crafters, of all kinds.

    Sorry not sorry, I'm for bots. It's not as simple as what I've quoted you saying above.

    One of the many reasons the population is too low is the bot themselves though. Bots in general create a problem that make people quit and now they are the important part of the game because nobody plays except for bots.

    Even if you do remove the bots now (or the p2w cash shop) the game won't revive and actual players won't come back because damage is already done.

    More bots subscribed to the game than players at this point, Why ban their leading source of income?

    That is because thousands of players signed at launch only to see they were lied to about the model and the tactics of the company. They lost 90% of that player base within the 1st month after the launch.

    I wish I was around a corner to see them talk about the loss of player base so fast and their excuses to keep doing the same mistake that lead to the death of retail. Someone must be taking these decisions and that person is either happy with the outcome or utterly oblivious about the reasons that this happens to the game.

    I mean it's not like your lack of participation is gonna stop reward distribution. A true free pass is people not participating :P

    Maybe my friends and I are the weird ones but isn't it kind of fun to fight people way out of your league in a risk/consequence free environment? It's like a boss fight and then afterwards you get to watch people you thought were bulletproof test their hype against other bulletproof people and it's exciting to see how it all plays out. Especially with Aion's trademark RNG clutches from godstones to minion procs to Mistviel resists.

    That's why we used to queue tenacity in our Wisplight Ancient Coin gear in 5.6 vs +15 Prime Captain BiS people. It costs nothing, it was fun to goof around, and it provided a spectacle to behold. Good stuff

    Winning is when they fight people, giving them the rewards for lack of participation is another thing.

    I am doing it for me not for them, because I do not find any fun in dying in less than 1 second while I do 0 dmg to the opponent, that only makes me want to quit because I am reminded I play a game that is not meant to be played but rather paid for.

    I exclusively do things that make me happy or I do not mind spending my time on and if there is not much to do I play other games too.

    Yep. They are deciding on class and leveling on RU to make their minds up on NA launch

    I find it hard to be immersed in a pseudo-3D isometric environment. It reminds me of Diablo or MU Online, but that gives early 2000s vibes.

    Same.. I wanted to compete but like you I only have 2 pieces of fighting spirit gear. Also like I said in another thread I am just over this game now. Not going to be repetitive and go over the many many reasons why. The one main guy I use to do stuff with as well, told me he also no longer logs in much either so 😖

    And I was on a stream earlier this week of one of the people involved in this tournament said only 1 team has signed up. Not suprising.. What is surprising though is the state of the game and the people asking for items to be put on the shop so the can buy them.. I will forever be baffled.

    Also it seems only the same people check the forums all the time. I don't even know why I do at this point lol. So maybe that's why your friends did not know because they don't check the forums. I don't think anyone is talking about this in game at all.

    P.S. one of the items was purchased from broker, so far I only gotten 1 items while doing the quests, renown level 4 in fate and 3,5 in the rest. I am pretty tired of doing them in such a hostile map with tough mobs and enemies around.

    By the look of things not many people signed up?? Not surprising.. Morale is at an all time low.

    Not sure how many people signed but most people don't have just the kerub gear, they have like 1~2 other items and they most likely deleted the kerub parts that they upgraded to fighting spirit, so they are not eligible for the small competition.

    Having 1~2 fighting spirit items and fighting against those p2w people that don't die would be like giving them a free pass and a waste of time.

    Also there are collections, special items, imbued weapons, passive skills, paragon gear that some might have at +8 or more etc.

    I didn't even know about this until someone asked me, not a single friend of mine knew about this and they are probably not interested.

    TBH not sure why NA only has Auto Hunt as an event, and to only allow in ingg and gelk is a joke, EU has it in every map and since really it was added due to  you needing EXP for Insignia of Experience which you need for almost everything Auto hunt makes this way easier. Also getting cubes and other bits, hey EU we even do TOC and the mine on auto hunt anything that really you able to do solo you can auto hunt, so it help with the every day things you get tried of doing. 

    Use an EXP pot and auto hunt elites and you get a great deal of  Insignia of Experience which really helps. 

    Yes auto hunting does come with being able to be killed but the risks out way the benefits. 

    EU also just had the OW drop event as someone just said, but the OW drops was not just in Ingg and Gelk they were in all maps which was really rewarding. 

    If you don't like Auto Hunt then just don't use it, but why stop everyone that would use it just because your feeling is you don't like it.

    The problem was in EU people couldn't do weeklies in main maps (Gelkmaros/Inggison) because every mob was pretty much camped by a bot. Now that Apsaranta is out, Gelkmaros and Inggison are no longer that important, plus drops there suck so farmers can't take over the economy on auto hunt.

    Many people were incentivized to even play, I have friends who were saying they had to put their chars to auto hunt to do basic things because it was nearly impossible to farm due to bots, so they had to bot themselves too.

    I hope Archangelos have try auto-hunt and realise there nothing left to bot in open world ...

    I haven't tried it and I do not want to "bot" in open world. I never wanted the game to become a botfest when the main map was gelkmaros and we had to do weeklies and kill mobs for quests etc to be taken over by a myriad of legal bots.

    Not having the auto hunt worked in the beginning because they were changing event rewards lowering the amount we needed to hunt, they gave us XP passive events for the XP we couldn't get, brought the auto hunt map but it was only an event etc BUT they are no longer dealing with the game so we are left with a naked version of it.

    Gelkmaros is not a main map anymore and the fact you cannot bot anything in open world means kinah sellers cannot take over the game by it, so let Gelk burn.

    nothing left to bot in open world

    Duh, Cubicles, XP and Renown, these are the things that are hurt by lack of auto hunt. Not being able to farm with 100 accounts in one pc is still not legal.

    ~~

    When we get the survey I am going to vote for permanent everywhere because I know they will screw up trying to implement another regional A-exclusive auto-hunt map that will have a ton of bugs. At this point the map that matters (Apsaranta) is auto-hunt unbottable because it is a shared map so there is pvp, mobs are tough and the other maps are dead and empty so who cares.

  13. 6 hours ago, Zappies-DN said:

    I don't mind the autohunt for people to get cubics and whatnot, but the xp isn't very good compared to completing 1 Apsa quest. I don't think many of us can auto-kill elites in Gelk/Inggi without dying, thus stuck with regular mobs. Luna pounch - good for this agreed.

    Garden was the best we deserve coins while farming xp, it is the least they can do. The giant pirate shugo in middle of Gelk been begging for money.

    But the auto hunt is what they made for other regions and when it was made it was a good way to make XP marks, now we have a better way and thus it seems less effective.

    Don't treat it as an event we got instead of something else, this is a trial event for them enabling auto hunt permanently so they do not have to alter events that are based on it, like kill 1500 mobs to get xx reward!

    Enabling auto-hunt in Gelk and Inggi wouldn't be the worst possible decision, seeing how it takes so long to collect cubics and people are botting those maps like crazy already (just in case you aren't paying attention). There's really no reason to add it to maps like Lakrum and Demaha, because literally nothing worthwhile drops in those maps anyway, aside for WB's and who's going to take down a WB with a party of bots? lol. The stupidest thing you could do would be to add auto-hunt to a map like Apsaranta. Imagine entire parties of kill-stealing bots. That would be a total nyerking nightmare!

    41 minutes ago, Gallium-DN said:

    Agreed. Just want to add that we kind of need auto-hunting in Gelk/Ingg for the mob-killing events we have been getting lately. Killing all those Daru for the moon event in Apsaranta was really annoying without Auto-hunt, but it really would be a nightmare having bots taking all the aggressives. If we have any more mob-killing events in Apsaranta then I think auto-hunt should only be useable in certain areas of the map, if that can be done. Otherwise those kind of events should not take place outside of Gelk/Ingg.

    For Gelk/Inggi yes, because they are secondary maps with little to no reason to go there other than some basic quests and dailies/weeklies. Drops are also not that important and bots already farmed luna, time for legit peoplet o be able to re-farm it on their main accounts' alts for crafting luna.

    I am sure they will not implement it on the main map of every patch if they are wise but I doubt anyone could auto hunt in Apsaranta, mobs are super hard to kill and it is a shared main map so they would simply be killed by enemies in no time.

    As for the other maps they should implement it, not only they are dead maps but autohunt was also made to ease renown acquisition. Some areas are easy to Renown like Lakrum, Katalam is doable if you dedicate yourself, but Demaha is not that easy unless you attend the sieges and Silentera is nearly impossible along with the enemy map. Sure thing you can get killed but if you are near the pc you can keep an eye every half an hour to place him back in case he got killed.

    We want garden back as an event. The forest was terrible. Gelk I guess we can set our alts to do the 50 kills while in washroom or cooking i suppose otherwise irrelevant since low xp and no drops worth anything in Gelk.

    But the auto hunt is meant to be like this in open world for XP, drops, cubicles etc.

    The other option is to have that auto hunt map but they need to expand it and not have it under Hourglass.

    As for the luna pouch yes, but bots already do the luna 50 kill, now they will normalize the auto hunt of it.

    Greetings Daevas!

    On Wednesday, we will be enabling the auto-hunt feature within Inngisson and Gelkmaros and it will remain available through February 2.

    We're particularly keen to hear your thoughts on this experiment. After this event, based on your feedback, we will be either:

    A) Enable this permanently and gradually start rolling it out to other zones
    or
    B)  Restrict is as an event-only feature as we have been doing for the past year and revisit adding this to other zones again in the future

    Look forward to the official poll on this topic, which we will post soon after you have had some time to experience auto-hunt in the open world.

    Thank you!

     

    I am glad you are addressing this issue.

    If we get an auto hunt event map then we have to make sure it is done correctly! otehrwise the normal auto hunt will have to be just like the rest of the world does.

    That player never logged in again, "choosing to remain" at level 15.

    *Chose to quit the game*. Fixed it for you.

    It seems this is your first time playing any game in general. You will meet the same types of people in the other side too.

    Plus you cannot expect to make friends at level 11. This is not old Aion.

    At level 50 you should start meeting with people and figuring out which ones you want to play with depending on their behavior. Eventually you would end up with actual friends that you could team with every day.

  17. Jeez, I didn't have a screenshot of my skill bars and I remade it pretty much 90% same but I am still missing slots and I can't remember what the heck I had there.

    Why did my skill bar get EMPTY all of a sudden out of nowhere?

    We need to have a "save skill bar" function like when we save the Character details.

    Big yes to the autohunt (#ForestOfLifePermenant) but we still do have the luna pouch now via lugbug don't we? 

    Yes, but all other regions put their chars afk to do it and we have to kill 50 mobs in open world to get it. I personally never did a single additional char in 50-kill since the change.

  19. 12 hours ago, AriaTheMelodious-DN said:

    If I remember correctly, wasn't this the solution to KT server crashes? Something to do with the sheer density of the KT bot army all generating tens of thousands of infected crawlers on the server at the same time. That same bot army generates no extra load by killing existing mobs in Ingg/Gelk.

    It'd be nice if it gave updated EXP or if we had the consumable cosmetics in the crafts shop like 5.8, but otherwise the luna system in every capacity except currency is a thing of the past

    They don't cause this trouble because  open world has a specific amount of mobs spawed at any given time. But entering an instance you "make" more mobs and luna had a ton of crawlers just for one character. It also seems this was kinda accumulative in the memory of servers, so after reaching a threshold it couldn't do more so it had to be reset.

    They should have found a better solution. Because right now Na is the only server with no luna pouch and no auto hunt in a game designed to have both as requirements.
