  1. Understand the Situation

    His job is to be the one we can reach. But I think is the same than a callcenter. Usually the person who is designated to receive all the complains, don´t have the tools to really solve the issues. I don´t think he is happy with the situation. And probably for him could be easier and faster to just solve the issues than having to read every comment on the forums trying to decide if something must be deleted or blocked. and about the complains... IMO what is happening is that we had a lot of issues and bugs since so long, and NCWest is not solving them. Instead of that they decide to modify something that wasn´t "a must". And even if the GP thing had some threads in the forums we had divided opinions. Yet, they changed that, and now there are a lot of bugs related to that. And we have the people mad about the buggs and people who don´t like the changes.... Could be a better sittuation for them if they decide to just fix the issues we asked for. Like the bugs in the eyes, or transparents contracts, or housing.... The community could be more comprehensive with them if they have bugs trying to fix those situations. And lets say that is not only about GP. they are changing the basic ideals created for Aion 6.X. They modified the store to avoid P2W (ultra expensive contracts and yellow stones is so few compared whit what we had ) and only PvE items from PvE content, only PvP items from PvP content. Now all that is changing just few months after.
  2. I think obtaining money from someone else´s intellectual property or trademarks is illegal everywhere. I don´t think it is right to create your private server and sell stuff to other people there using a game you don´t own. And even, now, creating a private server for yourself without getting money from it, when the owner provides servers for free, could be illegal. I think all the idea is about what happens if one day NCSoft decides to remove Aion and the servers from us. If the game it is not available for us, and somebody paid for a physical copy (and have the rights to play the game), can he/she create his personal server? And Aion it is supposed to be a game with a lot of people so most of the content can´t be done solo, so... can she/he make the server available for other people to join? And finally, that person must host the game for free, or he/she can obtain donations (giving items in exchange?) from other people to afford the costs (or even make it profitable)? I guess the last one is not legal even without an official server from NCSoft. But I saw that happening with some open source games, and apparently was legal. And also, if NCSoft decides to shut down Aion, will they complain or sue people if somebody create a private server? Maybe they wont care.
  3. this is an interesting topic to be honest. I think it was easier when the copies we got were for solo games without the need of internet. Every game we bought on those days are still there and we can install and play them if we want. But how it is supposed to work with online games requiring a server (and official one)? Do the copy that you paid give you the right to play the game every time you want? (even in 2040? ) If the game requires a server, that means that NCSoft should provide one maybe for the next 30 years? If they shut down the game, are the players free to host their servers to keep their games? I guess probably there are a lot of empty spaces regarding the laws for something like this. Online games are something really new and politicians tend to move really slow (and gaming is not something interesting for most of them ). But I also share the opinion that the laws that must be respected for most of the goods are the laws from the country where the item is sold. I saw that with other goods like wines. If you produce something in a country A you need to respect the laws about production, but when you sell the good in a country B, you need to respect the laws from that country B too. You can not say to the customer "this thing is made in A, so deal with it". If you want to only follow the laws from your country, don´t try to sell the goods out of it. So... in adition to that.... NCWest is in USA, so obviously they must respect the laws there... but actually we can join the servers from other countries too. And maybe we agree with the server rules, and they do not control who creates and account.... but they know where we live when we buy N coins (or BCM coins). And apparently not all the countries have that freedom. So maybe NCWest must also respect the laws in all those countries too.
  4. EU Cares About His Community

    IMO we can disagree with others without the need to use those words. And he won´t answer now, cause apparently he had a 3 days ban (that is what he showed on FB). Also I think the changes in EU are nice. Still the rates are not so significative. I don´t remember obtaining a lot of GS in the past. The changes they did about kinah apparently are nice. But in the other side EU started aion 6.0 (or 6.2, I don´t remember) with awfull settings and a lot of people complained a lot cause they really had no kinah at all. I remember people posting about how was not possible for them to play for free, cause the obtained kinah wasn´t enought to buy the potions and pay the teleports. They really needed a change. Here, we had a better start. We keeped 40% of our kinah and we had a little more ingame. Yet, I think we still need more.
  5. Is remodeling armor/clothing still a feature?

    And not only the skins. Every modification for your items are now on that menu. Armsfusion, desenchanting, etc. You no longer need to use an NPC to modify your items. Just be carefull and read everything before clicking anything. You don´t want to desenchant your items trying to add an skin
  6. ty so much. Always providing us math tips and info.
  7. Hello. a lot of things changed. Many maps were deleted. But... the new map is so similar to the old Katalam map. We have both factions in the same map. With a city for each one and open world pvp and a fortress in middle (or up middle now). The map also have camps whit weekly quest to get a "token" to buy PvP gear (and other things). So, it is almost the same than our old Katalam. (just the art is different). Most of the maps deleted were low level ones or, in some way, unsuccesfull maps (like Kaldor or Levinshor). PvP changed in some way. Now gear is so important and will provide significative stats. So it is not like the old BM gear that was easy to get and yet, good enought to play. You will have to upgrade the gear from camps. But the materials for that (AP and enchanments) can be obtained by doing PvP, like dredgions, and you will be able to get something better soon. If you liked open world PvP, fights near the camps, or making an small group of friends and go to chase the other faction´s players. And you liked all of that easy and fast without having to wait for annoying rifts or having to walk many maps to reach the place you want.... then you should come back, cause that is what we have now.
  8. Confused about Essencetapping.

    In the past, and probably it remains the same now, each item that you collect can only give experience in essencetapping up to +40 lvls over the required to gather. If you are gathering something that requires lvl 20 to collect it, you will only raise your essencetapping level to 61. (not 60. Cause it will still give some exp on that +40 level). Still it is better to try to gather materials that require a lvl closer of your essencetapping level. It seems you get some exp penalty when the difference is more than 10 levels and a bigger penalty if is between 20 and 40 under your level. It is not a really important thing. Maybe collecting higher materials you will require 1/2 or 1/3 actions to increase your level compared with materials near that -40 levels limit. Still if you have a lot of low level materials near and easy to gather, sometimes is better than having to move and look for better maths. I do not know the locations for different materials now. We used to have a lot of them in maps that were erased. I guess those materials are now distributed in the remaining maps. Take into consideration that some materials require an item to be collected (like some flask or extractors). All of them can be found in NPCs related with the proffession.
  9. Dorinerk's Wardrobe: How It Works

    nice post. usefull info for players who want to use some skins more than once. In my experience I saw that not every skin is available for this. It seems that they forgot to add some old or occasional skins. I was never able to put my snowflake shield there ( I do not remember the name now, but it looks like an snowflake. It is an item that was sold on some winters). Maybe the reasson for some of those skins could be that not all of them used to be white named. That shield is blue named (Heroic).
  10. Roll back

    Actually all the artist who made the music, designs, art and all the content are already paid for that and I guess they are not earning aditional money cause we use it. The owner is NCSoft so those servers are stealling from NCSoft and not the artists. Still, IMO, stealling is wrong (but I´ve downloaded some OST from Aion 4.0 lol ) Also rolling back to 4.5 or another previous point would be a mess. Probably a lot of gear, and progres we made, will require to be erased and maybe even the toons. That would mean a fresh start for all of us, and I bet most of the people here won´t be happy lossing all the time used (Personally, if something like that happens, I will be really mad and I will get a ban from the forums in few mins due to the content of my post ) We do not know if NCSoft is taking actions against people who wants to steal the game. We only know about people stealing from BCM. There are some protection software on the market, but usually are more suitable for P2P games, and not an online game. Usually having a MMORPG, that is free to play, should be enought to discourage people from stealling the game. In this moment only Battlenet and Denuvo can really prevent to steal a game. And even Denuvo protections, after few weeks or months, are broken. On the other side the people who pay for those games complain a lot about Denuvo. Their software really affect the performance on the games and in those that should not require internet to be played (like solo games) being online becomes a must. IMO, only crappy games from companies who are trying to sell overprized games without enought development to be even considered in Beta state, need to use things like Denuvo (as example: Jurassic World Evolution or the last Total Wars). There are some private-pirate servers with older versions of the game and I guess some people are happy playing there. But even if we do not take into consideration the "illegal" implications on something like that, would be nice to take into consideration that usually on those servers the amount of bugs in quest and features can be so annoying. We had, and still have, some bugs on the official servers and we complain a lot. But as somebody who had experienced the game on those "alternatives" servers (not intentionally), let me tell you that the amount of bugs there is beyond your imagination. And if that is not important to you, you must know that usually those servers only last for some time. If is not profitable to keep them up, they will just erase everything (and a dolphins video will replace the game.... ... oh. sorry!. just memories... ). Finally, sometimes the owners on those servers decide to make some money by selling top endgame gear in the page. And that could completelly ruin the good things from an old version. So,...... at the end..... is not only about the moral issues if somebody is stealling Aion to make an own server. There are a lot of complications for the players. Aion 6.5 is not the best patch, but is free. We have some bugs but still we can play here. And usually the official servers in MMORPGs tend to live longer. I believe that even if Aion reach an end in the future, NCSoft will just keep 1 server, without updates, for those nostalgic players who want to see their toons sometimes.
  11. OMG i can't do afk EC anymore

    OH. ty both. It seems I used the wrong way in my first run and they are not all the same I will do that.
  12. OMG i can't do afk EC anymore

    and how you can do all the 3 ways in solo? doing 1 way gives more than 300k And it is funny how at the beggining of 6.2 they said "No PvP rewards doing PvE". And I know that we can use AP to craft daevanion skills and that is not totally PvP, but the mines also gives ridium
  13. Maybe the buff in some endgame bosses is not intended. Usually after a patch the old instances get an small nerf making them easier. But I think I never saw in the past that they make one, or more, of those harder. Maybe somebody just improved the HP and resistances for all the 76+ mobs in the game. Making IDD a little harder to prevent people doing it with just 6 players could be an strategy... but why PF? And more important!. why to make harder BoS and FM?? Looks like a mistake to me. And to be honest I can imagine that is the same issue we are having since a lot of time ago. So few people working in Aion and so few time invested in it. Looks like a fast update without enought people working on it.
  14. OMG i can't do afk EC anymore

    In 5.8 was important to deal with AFK people. We needed to get those items to upgrade the PvP gear. But now Evergale Canyon it is just to get some AP and stones. It is not a big deal. Of course it is better to win and get double of those. But I think a lot of people will just make enemies kicking out people. I think we need the option to create the whole team before entering to avoid AFK people if you want to win. And having the "quick entry" option for those who does not care and just want some extra items.
  15. IckzerOne, IMO you are right, but still there is a lot of legal vacuum with MMORPGs and other online games. Take into consideration that there is some featyures that includes gambling, and with real money involved, and there is no way to avoid people under 18 to play... so in some way some of the laws related to gambling (like in casinos) are not respected here. In some countries are starting to take actions. But will take some time. And probably some companies like NCSOft will prefer to leave the west before having to respect all those laws. we still have the black eye thing....
  16. Scheduled Game Update - March 27, 2019

    IMO this will generate some inbalance between some classes. Glads already had a decent DPS. I am agree that templars needed some extra damage. And I don´t see a reasson to remove the bonus from HB in some chanter´s skills. As somebody said, it is so expensive to retune the gear to get the desired stats to do something like this. And clerics won´t have more DPS so I guess we will have to be just healers. Also I saw that even if they said "Doing PvP you will only get PvP things, and doing PvE you will get only PvE things", they added again a PvE instance to farm AP and ridium. Just give us some GP in luna missions if you want. And no news about transparent scrolls, the bug with the eyes, the issue with Anomos and the dominating faction.... I saw in the patch notes that Bastion Of Souls and Frozen Monolith will have "increased drop rate". Both of them had a 100% rate dropping legendary items. Increasing the rates in those will mean to give some Ultimate Gear sometimes? Or we will have the chance to get 2 legendary items if we are lucky?
  17. Actually could be really nice to have more duration. In the top instances, fights last much longer than 4 or 6 mins. 10 mins for an ancient could be interesting. You are right too. Must be a way to make the lesser trasnformations usefull. And actually I use the potions in some places where the stats or casting speed is not really important, but i need to walk a lot. Maybe a good solution could be to have double duration for all of them. So an ancient with 10-12 mins duration and the normal ones with 20 mins.
  18. Server balance after transfers

    maybe 2 Anomos. One on each side Or Anomos could appear inside the fortress. The owner faction will have protection from the garrison. To protect a little more the new players in Lakrum, maybe more garrisons or defensive buff in some areas.
  19. You are right. To see our toons should not be a "privilege". But in the other hand... with the option to buy a transparent scroll, in some way will be something similar than the old scrolls for speed or crits. We had to buy them to get those buffs. So in some way buying one of those would be similar to buying an old speed scroll?
  20. Server balance after transfers

    I´m not sure how the buff works, but I think it just level up or down 1 level after each victory or defeat. If that is true that will make the weaker faction to have some buff all the time. In KT apparently is working in that way. Also, IMO, could be nice to avoid insults. We are so many, and all of us can have a different opinion. And sometimes we will find annoying the opinion from somebody else. But I don´t think we need to insult other people to show our point of view. Also lets remember than nobody here can really change a thing. It is not like NCWest will do something (or not) just cause 1 player said something. If we still do not have the tranparents scrolls or a fix for the bug with the eyes, after most of us asked for them, I don´t think Aly´s opinion will really make a difference with NCWest decitions. So it is pointless to insult other players (and I said the same thing to him in the past). But again, just my humble opinion.
  21. Oh. really nice info Devilnest and Zombiex! do you know what will happens with clerics? Our DPS skills will get an improvement? Or the policy is to make us avoid DPS and force us to just focus on heals (even more than now)?
  22. Feeling Real Guilty... (Just need ur POV)

    Hello IMO, just be honest. People usually are so nice if you are nice with them. Talking with some players when you play will give you friends here. And if you are honest and explain your situation, they will try to be nice. Maybe if they have few time or they are complicated, will just say to you that on that run they can´t take the risk to have to try some times. But even those, usually will tell you that they will try to play with you in the next days. And in my experience, even if you have a complication, they will still try to go with you and will be patient if you get DC. The same thing applies to experience. Nobody have experience before doing some runs. But most of the times if you are honest and tell them the situation, they will still invite you and will try to guide you. And that even applies with the hardest instances. On sieges usually is not a big issue. A lot of people get DC due to the number of players involved. Sometimes happens to me and the leaders never kicked me. Still, if you are so worried about that, you can try to tell your issue to the alliance captain. He/she will probably understand. But some players, sometimes, are so worried about telling the leader about those possibles complications. Some players are afraid to say that they have no experience or their internet is not working properly that day, cause maybe they won´t be invited. And they prefer to don´t say a word and just go. And then is when people gets upset. Nobody gets angry if they knew about a risk and that happens. Cause they decided to be nice. But almost everybody gets angry when somebody is not honest and in the middle of the boss everything goes wrong, and was totally unexpected for them. I came back to play actively like a month ago. I had no exp with the new content, and not the best gear for it. But I always told that. And doing that, I went to all the instances, They even teached me how to play there. I made a lot of mistakes at the beggining, and yet they never complained. And most of them even added me in their friend list to do more runs in the future.
  23. EK Server Situation

    IMO wont be a huge lost of money to offer the players in EK a free transfer if they need. But Also I saw in another post that not everybody there want to leave EK. So now we have a real situation here. Maybe the best way is to start a poll there to know the total opinion in the players afected by any action about this. Of course the poll must not be sended to the players in DN and KT There are some ways to improve the population without doing a large advertising actually. Some games provides to each player with a link (with a personal code) that directs to the Account Creation page. If somebody use that to create an account, in some way is linked to the player who gave the link. To promote some players to start inviting some friends to join the game, they give some minor rewards if the new player reach some conditions (like lvl or content palyed). In one of them I also saw that the player who invited, received 10% the amount of credits when the new player bought them. (I guess giving away 10% extra game coins is not so hard to do). Of course some free players in those games try to invite a lot of players by all means so they can get some credits in the store to be able to buy things like people who pay. To avoid exploits the rewards are small enought to make not usefull to train an army of fake accounts, but yet a pleasant extra reward to try to invite new players.
  24. I would also ask if there is a way to modify the size on some text or how are they displayed in some menus, so we can read all the text to the end. As 1 example I find a little annoying when tunning an item and not being able to see the complete range for the randoms stats to know wich number is the max available.
  25. hahahaha. It is ok. sometimes is funny to read something like this. And don´t feel bad about this. Everyone here did something similar in the past. Me. I played my first 4-5 months witout greater stigmas cause I did not wanted to use AP and lose positions in the ranking. Was interesting to heal endgame instances without those great heals. And in the past the rangers needed arrows to use bow skills. Many times a ranger in the team started an instance without enought arrows to end it. "why I can´t use skills!! oh wait I have no arrows "
