  1. A Solution to the GP Problems/Complaints?

    GP has been a hot topic so far in 6.2, and after considering the many various thoughts and opinions I've heard, I think I have come up with a possible solution. But first, putting all opinions aside here are the basic facts: 1. Unless the gap between players' rank happens to be tiny, it is impossible to rank up unless the people already above you from previous patches happen to give up. (KT/DN) 2. GP can only come from siege, resulting in the removal of all non-sieging xform players. (KT/EK/DN) 3. After a short while the ranks on all servers will plateau; the top 100 will be the same top 100 for the whole patch and nobody has a chance to try and move up. (KT/DN) In order to maintain a ranking system that prevents PVE GP hoarders from blocking access to siege Xforms, while also making it possible to rank up if a player should choose to do so, I would propose a system wherein GP rewards are added back into PVP instances for additional GP gain, but in order to maintain an Officer Rank of any kind a player must gain a minimum amount of GP from siege. Either that or a minimum siege attendance would be required. Something like that which would make it impossible for a player to maintain an xform rank while not participating in the sieges as is intended for those high ranks. This would allow for new/returning players to have their chance to rank up while keeping the benefits of the 6.2 ranking system. It is, so far, the best alternative I can think of and I would love to know any input any of you might have. @Cyan @Gideon @Hime I don't think I've seen any of you comment on the GP rank situation beyond the lowering of the required monthly GP, and I would love to know if the concerns players have about ranking up have reached your ears yet Thank you all for your time ♪
  2. Aion: Awakened Legacy - November 14 Patch Notes

    @Rapier-DN I'm not referring to the top 30 people particularly, I am referring to all the ranked players. What upsets people is that it takes a few months to do 3 days' worth of GP from the previous patch, What upsets people is that they can NEVER compete now. What upsets people is that the people above them do not need work "hard" to keep their rank, they just have to show up. Having only 1 GP output with a fixed rate means anyone who shows up will not lose their rank nor be overtaken. There is absolutely no way for a 4-Star to get the GP they need to be a 5-Star anymore unless players drop off the board, but as @Mirelium-KT mentioned: they can at any point strip you of your rank simply by showing up to a few sieges and getting theirs back
  3. Aion: Awakened Legacy - November 14 Patch Notes

    @Cyan In regards do GP distribution, I would like to bring something very important to your attention: the GP system in 6.2 (pre and post Nov. 14 patch) is the first time in Aion's history where the ranks are FROZEN. What I mean by this is previously it was possible for a player to grind and really try to achieve a higher rank but as of the 6.2 patch, nobody can rank up unless A: The person above them does not siege, or B: They just happened to have a really close amount of GP at the end of 5.8 For example, I currently have 430,535 GP and the person above me has 456,661 GP. This is a fairly average GP gap between ranks. The ONLY way I could over take that player is if he quit the game or stopped coming to siege. If he stopped coming to siege I would need 26,126GP just to move up the 1 rank. In 5.8, that is attainable in a week and a half. In 6.2, I would have to lose (as DN-E currently are) 218 sieges with prestige all while the person above me does not get a single Glory Point. This would take 54.4 weeks. 54.4 weeks to move up a single rank and that is only if the player above me does not go to a single siege. Not only this, but at any point someone who quit earlier could return to the game, regain their rank, and push the entire leader board down; this is not new to 6.2 but the fact that we cannot earn the GP to compete with that player is. As I understand it, other regions of the game have seasonal rankings that reset and for that kind of system, the new GP distribution works. However for the NA Rank system, this new choke hold on GP only ensures that the entire ranking system, as well as all the fun benefits that come with ranking up, is locked off and inaccessible to all but a few lucky players whose GP happens to be within 2 digits of their next rank (though even then, the person above that rank is likely multiple thousands of GP ahead). There are many people who are very upset by this, and if you're reading this Cyan please at the very least let us know that we are being heard. The people want to know if there is a chance NC might fix this or if it is completely hopeless for us all.

    Ah, I see we're still continuing the tradition of spelling "Provenance" incorrectly in forum rewards posts

    @Roulette-DN People are gonna be upset when they learn that it was actually AdamKovic who brought the servers down to stop people from bribing their way into The Movie legion with bigwigs. The power of the Golden RoboHorse is unmatched. Update: Danaria is back up!

    @Euphoria-DN In regards to GMs popping in for random events, they used to do that in Aion too. I have screenshots from YEARS ago when PM-Valor spawned himself giant into the Sanctum Docks and he was spawning giant world bosses while shouting "BWAHAHAHA!" into the chat like a madman. Kind of thinking of sending a letter to NC Soft (an actual professional message, not just "please do this please") about the various ideas I've had regarding stuff like this. Nothing too intense or demanding, but it's a great way to help close the divide between GM and player and, well, honestly it just was a lot of fun for everyone and I hope it happens again As far as AFKing goes, I mean, you don't really HAVE to AFK. I get why it is called an AFK event but it's not like doing nothing is a requirement, you can still play and enjoy the game and still get the exact same rewards :')

    @Aly-DN It's fine ^-^ The only unsettling thing is the idea that some people are so ridiculous that even my stupid over the top exaggeration statement of demands could be seen as a genuine response from someone in this community O-O

    @Aly-DN I am not sure if you are playing along with my sarcasm and I am too dumb to realise, or if I did not make it clear enough that my reply to you was sarcastic and mocking the people who want every event to exclusively drop valuable items for no effort (despite the fact that increased availability decreases rarity and therefore value)
  14. Rainbow Snake Festival 2018 Reward List

    @Aly-DN What did you expect? Players have to do LITERALLY NOTHING for this event, do you have any idea how much of a strain and an effort that is apparently!? Of course there is going to be upset when people get an okay-ish item when they spend all their time and effort on typing their username, password, character PIN and "AFK" into their private store so that they can proceed to do nothing for a few hours while they spend quality time with their family or do their taxes or watch a movie or something! Oh well, just another NCShit blunder I guess, next time give us Prime Commander full sets (pre-reduced to Level 75, of course) for staring intently at the "Play Now" button in the launcher for 10 seconds. MAYBE then we will consider renewing our prestige packs.
