    Sounds like a good chance we’ll be getting GameGuard within a few months then, that’s something

    We had GameGuard in the past, it stopped the hackers for a few weeks, then they found a way around it... so who knows how long it'll last.

    So at the end of the day, I don’t think there’s any good blanket solution, and even improving the situation takes money for sure. Now there’s only a thousand or so subscribers ($15,000/mo), some of those are also buying Daeva Pass, plus cash shop and a couple true whale outliers. I suspect we’re talking somewhere around $500k-$1M per yr revenue for all of Aion Classic NA/EU. And most of that is dependent on recurring revenue, but our pop is declining pretty steadily. After server costs, translation costs, etc, there’s just not that much money for a larger staff. I would look to the profitable asian markets to see what is coming our way, since we’re probably 1% of their revenue and it just doesn’t make business sense to prioritize us

    NCsoft is publicly traded and post their quarterly earnings. NA is actually their 2nd largest market after KR.

    Aion (Last I look last quarter) made up 30% of their total gross revenue.  I might have to recheck but last quarter their earnings was almost 5x more then their operational costs.... So Ncsoft def can afford the staff and to invest in anti-cheat programs. Heck KR servers just re-enabled GameGaurd. We also got a hidden little update with 1.5 that protected information from server-side. Sadly the little update we got only stopped the hackers for a few hours before they found a bypass around it, took the DPS meter ppl a bit longer though. This is not an issue of costs vs operation, it's an issue of will power. At least that's my assessment. If someone from NCwest would love to clear the air, I'm all ears though.

  3. We've dealt with Goldspammers for years, well over a decade now, and their annoying and do tend to screw up the ingame economy... but now....Well now we're getting spammers via Discords promoting different Hacking programs for Aion Classic and Retail....

    With these spams they send direct video links to showcase the hacks.  Many of which I have personally seen in game and even recorded players doing prior to my leave from the game. I sent support tickets for players I've caught doing this, but I hear they're still in the game even though it's going on a month+ for several of them.

    @Kibbelz @Loki @Hime @Gideon

    My question for NCwest is;

    What are you going to do about this? 


    It feels like every few weeks there's a new program out for exploiters/hackers and it's become the norm in game. The NCsoft support team is useless and half the time doesn't even watch the videos you send them.  I already stopped logging in and won't be re-activating my siel's Aura, however I'm still keeping an eye on the forums hoping that NCsoft/NCwest steps up their game and makes the game bareable again. 

    How does everyone else feel about this?

    I'm not defending or anything, just saying so he knows the next time he wants to share a video via link-only he's gotta set it to "Unlisted" instead of "Private"

    You made me to and double check! They are listed as Unlisted and not Private, but I swapped them to private then back again to unlisted and resubmitted tickets with new URLs just incase... But yeah, doubtful they'll ever be watched.

    @Kibbelz @Loki @Hime @Gideon

    This is just 2 examples of videos I've taken of hackers/exploiters and sent via private link on youtube to support.  With using a youtube private link only people with the link are able to view the videos and it lets me know when they've been watched.  As you can see neither of these 2 examples have been watched. (There's more but figured i'd keep this list short) 

    I have sent followup tickets to support telling them that I can see they haven't reviewed the videos and I just get this exact copy & Paste response every time:

    Hello again,

    I appreciate you getting back to us regarding your report.

    We understand that you want an immediate resolution for this. We'll make sure to review the video footage you have provided, and we will take appropriate action accordingly. This might take a while, but rest assured that any players who are caught breaking the game's rules and regulations will be sanctioned based on our findings.

    Your utmost patience and kind understanding is highly appreciated.

    ~SomerandomGMthatDoesn'tCare

    Now granted the 1st example is under a week old, but I guarantee it'll never be watched. The 2nd example is over 2 months old... So HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO INVESTIGATE OUR TICKETS?  The players in both these videos are still in game, still exploiting/hacking, and one of them I even PM'd about it and they just laughed saying that they've been doing it for years and NCwest doesn't care.... 

    Things like this is why I'm truly slowing down playing the game and hesitant to renew my Siel's Aura.  I know the game is 12+ years old, but you still have a semi-loyal customer base. Do you guys truly  not care, or does your support team just fail to do their jobs?  I'm doubtful this will even get a reply from anyone tagged but maybe this will help serve as a warning to any potential new players on what to expect atm from NCwest. 

    P.S.  The names are scratched out to avoid violation the TOS of the forums so this thread has 0 reason to be locked/deleted. 

  6. @Loki  @Kibbelz  This is a very annoying process when farming Quest items or like right now with the event items dropping... Having to click yes over and over and over and over again..... If we're solo farming we shouldn't have to confirm we want to pick up loot...if we are farming with a PAID for loot pet, we shouldn't have to confirm it either! SERIOUSLY REMOVE THIS rubbish FEATURE!

    +1 on this thread if you agree!

    I'm about to uninstall... This is just ridiculous

    Greetings Daevas,

    This week, our maintenance for Aion Classic will begin at 5am Server Time (4am PT / 7am ET / 11am UTC). We expect the servers to resume operation approximately 2 hours 15 minutes later.

    After maintenance, we will begin the new Halloween event for Aion Classic. Visit our new blog post which includes details about the event so that you can be prepared!

    Thank you, and enjoy!

    .... You made an open world grind event to gain the candies to farm for the pets.... You do realize the botters will dominate this event and if those candies are tradeable/sellable/brokerable you just made the RMT issue 1000x worse right? 

    Also, other then the [Event] Jack O' Lantern, the rest of the rewards are pretty crappy. Should of just stuck the [Event] Jack O' Lantern in the Kuna store.  

  8. Due to the lack of Boiling Balaur Blood stains I actually have stopped reporting bots by hoarfrost because the rates are horrible. I have a few legion mates that farm DC daily doing full clears of the mobs, they say it's a good run if they see more then 1 blood drop. I also try to farm around the core at least 1 hour a day every weekday but maybe see a blood once a week. I also went into DP to solo farm for about 2 hours, was kinda rough to do, but was doable with patience.... didn't see a single blood drop. Granted my RNG is horrible, but still... these rates are horrible.  @Loki is this intentional? Fenris is a overly expensive set to begin with for it's actual stats, the only reason I'm even doing it is for the perm title, which isn't even better then the P2W tittles.... Can we get an increase in drops? Maybe a survey in the meantime? It takes 100 bloods per attempt at your pants without a garanteed proc. That's over 50 MIL kinah an attempt... kinda ridiculous 

  9. So one of the biggest complaints I've had personally and other players kept complaining about is that there is no loot pet in Aion Classic....but turns out there is one! It's just NCwest failed to put it in the description.  The Pink Griffo Egg from the Quna shop is a loot/buff pet. 

    @Kibbelz why wouldn't you guys have a proper description on this?!?! I would of been buying one every month as loot pets are life/time savers! 
     

     

  10. Gotta admit, making the white items non-tradeable is very annoying... Esp in high paced situations like Dredge, you go to loot a mob before getting rushed with PVP and you get stuck on the "This item is not tradeable, are you sure you want to take it?" message has to be one of the biggest annoyances ever

    So, I'm all for the classic feeling and all.

    However we all know this isn't being run like classic. We've accepted higher drops in dungeons, faster exp, candies etc.

    I've failed the Hot Heart of Magic 6 times now, and ya... this aint 2009. I'm not sure about you all, but there is no chance I'm farming any more then this.

    In my opinion... Instead of a free 100 bloods at 5 failed attempts we should get the Hot Heart of Magic.

    Always hated that quest...back in original I lost track of how many fail attempts I had after 20 or so. With how rare bloods are they should just give the HHM after 3 fails or something.

    AFK players on dredgion is game-killing! Toxic players who die once in the dredgion give up the game and stay AFK in the dredgion harming other players, it is necessary to have punishment for these unhappy players

    Premake groups to avoid this. If you quick que you have no idea what the intention of other players is that also quick qued.  Whats truly toxic is all the animation hackers that are showing up now in dredge... You would think 12+ years of it going on the Aion dev team would know how to detect Para Vanilla tools and stop it by now.... 

  13. @Kibbelz  @Loki  Hope you guys are checking the combat logs hardcore for some of the winners of this.... So many Ani-hackers have decided to come back for 1.5... really makes me glad I bought Siel's Aura again....  

    Pretty sad when players you /inspect are wearing blue low level gear and they rick-roll full end game enchanted players.... Most that have full PVP gear

  14. So it's noon CST right now...Dredge still hasn't popped... so assuming it's going to start at 1pm CST...that means it's 1pm, 9pm, 1am CST... Those times are AWEFUL.... @Kibbelz Can you please PLEASE get us the patch notes and do a survey for the dredge times? Everyone's QQing in LFG about these awful times. 

  15. 14 minutes ago, Kibbelz said:

    Greetings Daevas!

    This coming week, we will be offering all Daevas a daily login survey which will issue the following rewards:

    • Day 1: [Event] Greater Running Scroll x10
    • Day 2: [Event] Greater Awakening Scroll x10
    • Day 3: [Event] Greater Courage Scroll x10
    • Day 4: [Event] Greater Life Potion x10
    • Day 5: [Event] Greater Mana Potion x10
    • Day 6: [Event] Lodas Amulet III x2

    We intend to run this event until the launch of Patch 1.5, and next week we're looking to giveaway items that will help prepare you for the upcoming 1.5 content, so stay tuned!

    Appreciate the effort here...but realistically helpful things for 1.5 will be major fireproof scrolls and lodas amulets....anything else is kinda blah unless they are Major Recovery Serums/Pots.

  16. @Kibbelz I hate to keep beating a dead horse...but are you guys ever going to address the broken GM Flight buff? Siel Asmo side only had it working on day 1, other factions/servers it seemed hit or miss on it day by day.... It really gave players of the other faction where the buff was working an unfair advantage. There's been several posts made about it but not a single one ever got a reply from the NCsoft team. Tickets to support about it just got automated responses saying things along the lines of, "It's working as intended" or "For more assistance try looking on the official Aion Forums".   Ignoring this disaster only feeds frustration between the players and NCwest.

    Greetings Daevas!

    Tomorrow we will begin our maintenance at the usual 6am Server Time (4am PT / 7am ET / 11am UTC). We expect the servers to be offline for approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes. Players can look forward to the following changes in-game:

    • Gojira event begins
    • Daeva Pass Season 4 begins
    • EXP event ends
    • Siel’s Western + Eastern siege times have been changed back to 16:00

    Additionally, we're thrilled to reveal that we will be hosting a special Scavenger Hunt Community Event this week! We will be utilizing a new approach and set of tools for this event, which will play out in real-time across the game and on our Twitter channel. We hope that this new event style brings a wealth of fun for everyone!

    Thank you, and for those participating in the Scavenger Hunt... Happy Hunting! 😉

    The beast’s spawning times (Server Time) are below:


    Yo @Kibbelz there's a problem with this... You guys don't clarify what server time is.... You've moved around so much I don't even know anymore and the ingame  /time command only shows game time and your local time zone...... 

    PS you never addressed the fact that the GM Wing buff was broken since day 1 of that event.... can we expect these events not to work past day 1 as well?
