    How is someone not playing the game for more than 1 month more important than someone who plays the game every day and just happened to be in a dead server (and that dead server is because of mismanagement of NCWest)

    YES. Exactly. Thank you.

    I rolled an Elyos Sorc on IS today to see what it was like,   it's fine, plenty of people on

     

    I was going to say something very mean here, but fortunately, I thought better of it. I will simply say that you are deliberately being obtuse as you know VERY WELL (because you are on the forums more often than I am, and looking at my post count, that's really saying something!) that IS-E has a much better population than IS-A. This post is about IS-A. So as Kubei said, if you just want to be deliberately obtuse, just stay out of the post. Jfc.

    Enough people have commented on how completely bogus it is for us to be losing our names. I don't care if someone with an alt has signed in during the last year- NO one is actively maining our names. Haniya, Aelar, Bjorn, etc- there's no KT equivalent and you all nyerking know it.

    👏👏👏

    There is a Hellish-KT who, according to MyAion, has not done literally a single thing within the past couple years. So Hellish will lose his name that he has ACTIVELY mained for 5+ years to some alt who has never actually done anything in game. But hey, whatever is fair for KT, right? 🤷‍♀️

    If I kept playing in Israphel, I would be Level 50 by now and maybe bored out of my mind, but instead, I'm farming my Kromeda weapon with a LFG packed with players doing the same. I do not regret at all, even if I'm not able to be one of the "top players", because, in the end of the day, I'm enjoying what I'm doing.

    Gotta say I agree. I'm only level 38 now because I rerolled, and I have basically no AP to speak of, so I'm going to be very behind in pvp gear. Still, it's a more enjoyable use of my time now. I'm a grown adult with a full-time career, like many people here, and this is a video game that is supposed to be fun to play in my free time. I'm not going to struggle to even level up because this isn't real life. I shouldn't have to struggle like that. People can call it "quitting" or "adding to the problem" or whatever they want, but games are supposed to be fun. 🤷‍♀️

    That tough pink tiger candy is not every pay to win. It gives garbage boosts. The amount of cast speed is so minuscule, the kill times of each monster only decreases by 2 seconds. 

    Oh no. Are you actually using the candy? That's not what the "p2w candy" thing was about lol. You can SELL the candies to the vendor for 100k kinah each. So you can buy tons of candy with real money to get tons of kinah in game. THAT'S what people were talking about. No one actually uses the candies unless they're endgame and loaded with kinah already lol.

    i just want you guys to acknowledge the issue and tell us you guys are working on it. just seems like you guys are just ignoring the issue. 

    It HAS been acknowledged. However, it will probably take them a while to fix it. It always takes them a while to fix problems. 😔 Hopefully they prove me wrong though.

    Sending the team this thread to make sure they’re aware. Will update if I’m told there’s anything to share, but it also seems this issue is resolving for some.

    Ok. Keep the cameras on. In 10 years of this game i dont think i have ever seen anyone hack. Bot sure. But not hack.

    Ooooooof. No animation hacking is probably the most common type of hacking in this game. I'm honestly baffled at how you have never experienced it? Or maybe you just don't know you have? (Not saying that in a snotty way; your ping might be high so it might not be that noticeable to you.) It's EXTREMELY common, especially on live servers.

  8. I probably look like a bot while I'm gathering, but that's because I'm actually working, and I just tab back in around the appropriate time that it should respawn and start to gather. If someone is standing around me, I almost never notice them. I stay by the same node; I don't move from node to node as that requires too much effort on my part (again, working). Downside: I die to Elyos a lot because I'm not paying attention to the game except for a few seconds every 4-5 minutes lol.

    5. Later on, a few hours I believe, Kibbelz stated that the rewards being shown were actually incorrect.

    Did a check to make sure I'm being factual. The issue wasn't acknowledged until 1.5 hours after reset, and even then, it wasn't known that the rewards were wrong. The rewards were not noted as being wrong by Kibbelz until 3 hours after reset.

    Initial notice that there is a known issue; no note about rewards being wrong:

    On 7/21/2021 at 11:29 AM, Kibbelz said:

    We're investigating this. Please be sure to check mail as that is where rewards are supposed to be delivered (not to inventory) to help identify if this is an issue for some users or all.

    Clarification that rewards were being shown incorrectly:

    So sorry because it still makes little sense, when they purchased the Daeva Pass with the good items shown... didn't the items get into their inventory or something? Or do you buy it but still need to unlock it somehow like the normal one?

    Correct.

    Here is how it works:

    1. Open the Daeva Pass tab and it shows you all of the rewards from start to finish, including the Premium ($30) rewards. You can decide at this point if it's worth buying.

    2. Once you unlock that level (both free and Premium), you must click Receive All in order to actually have the rewards for that level show up in your inventory.

    Now that is how it is supposed to work. Here is what actually happened yesterday for those of us who purchased it right after daily reset:

    1. Purchased the Premium pass.

    2. Completed the first couple levels (easy to do in half an hour of gameplay).

    3. Clicked Receive All, but nothing showed up in our inventories.

    4. It was clear at that time that it was broken, but there was NOTHING said that the rewards were wrong. Kibbelz simply stated that it was being looked into. We did NOT know at that early time that the rewards were incorrect. Again, we purchased based upon what we saw. We just assumed that it being broken meant that the rewards weren't being delivered, but that they would later. That would be fine -- IF they were the rewards being shown. However, they were not. See below #5.

    5. Later on, a few hours I believe, Kibbelz stated that the rewards being shown were actually incorrect.

    As you can see, NCsoft is at fault here. Honestly, I'm not bothered by it, so it doesn't really affect me. But I'm trying to see it from the viewpoint of those who purchased based upon the fact that they wanted coins or whatever the case may be. However, they didn't get those items. They deserve to at least have the Quna go back into their inventory to spend on something else. NCsoft isn't losing money this way, and the player can buy something else they want.

    I'm just updating this for future reference...It took 31 minutes to get to the character screen, then another 4 minutes. So it seems it takes about 35 minutes after reset to be able to log in. 

    Correct. If you are logged in, that is the same amount of time it takes for items to start showing up in your inventory, mailbox/broker to start working, etc.

  12. It seems to be a daily occurrence at reset (9:00am server time). If you are not logged in already, you cannot for 20-30 minutes. If you are logged in, nothing looted/gathered will show up in your inventory and the broker doesn't work for 20-30 minutes.

    If anyone was curious what allows companies to get away with disrespecting their playerbase, it's the nuthuggers that will come to the forums and write a blog defending them even when they're clearly in the wrong.

    That is a common issue with the Aion community. People will often defend NCsoft even if they are in the wrong. Fairly often, they DO deserve to be defended as people can be a bit ridiculous sometimes. However, in times like this, they are not in the right. If someone purchased the Daeva Pass BEFORE it was announced that it was wrong (which NCsoft can easily verify with their log times), then they should be eligible to receive their Pass refunded/turned back into Quna in their account.

    Although tbh, it's not just in Aion. In real life, you see so much blind support these days. People will never, ever admit that someone they support might have made a mistake about something. People have an all or nothing mindset. It's okay to admit that someone might be wrong about something; you don't have to support every single decision they make. I'm wrong all the time. Does that make me a bad person? No. Just human. NCsoft is a company made up of humans, too. 🤷‍♀️

    Now someone explain to me how this daeva pass works, you buy it and somehow you don't get the items until you claim them or something and people bought it and didn't bother getting them until they changed?

    You can see what the items are BEFORE  you purchase it. However, in this case, the items that were shown were not the correct items. So people bought the Pass based upon what they saw, but NCsoft had the wrong items showing. NCsoft is completely at fault despite people victim-blaming the players.

    As mentioned above, if I pay someone for a listing that shows an iPhone, but they send me a different type of phone, then that is their fault, not mine.

    But to keep your mansion don't you need to log in and pay for the rent otherwise you lose it? If you think it is not fair to keep a mansion you could let it go.

    I will be upon merge. I will not attempt to buy it back when housing becomes available again unless I decide to start playing retail again.
