  1. Ia AION becoming a only PvP game?

    The thing with MMORPG's is no one ever releases numbers of co-current players by country. If i were a betting man i would bet that WoW currently has more co-current player base than any Asian released MMORPG in all Asian countries but we will never know for sure because developers are not forced in to letting this information out to the public and is often why many games steer clear of platforms such as steam and so on. What i am getting at is developers in Asia are just getting a slice of the pie. Some get a bigger slice due to timing/graphics or others get it due to power = king and players pay for power. This does not mean they are the most played games in their country tho.
  2. Ia AION becoming a only PvP game?

    You act as if the biggest games in Asian countries are all grindy games.The biggest games in Korea are instant games just like every where else in the world. League/pugb/fortnite and probably valorant now are all top games in almost every country around the world. Given this information i would say that very few grindy MMORPG's would be at the top of the list for games play in Asian countries. You hear about them alot because you mostly hear about people who spend 10s of 1000s on them. The problem with MMORPG's is the gamers themselves. IMO when i look back and all the research i done for Aion when i was gonna release a video that was 3+ hours long that was just impossible to condense. I would say the Aion of today resembles player feedback more than players want to admit. The QQ about sorcs being able to insta gib people with quick casting and crazy damage - Now nerfed They crying melee is to weak vs ranged despite them being a very competitive classes since the RS when silence became available. The complaint that players had to rely on other classes for max attack speed while others could get it with normal stigma's. The QQ where clerics/chanters had over whelming advantages because they could full heal them selves(now so can nearly every class if their is mobs in open world). The complaints that you had to PvE to get the best PvP gear. The list could go on and on but i am just giving examples on how the players have influenced the game be it the Korean players only or the western players it is more westernized than you think.
  3. Why is this coming back?

    It was a core successful mechanic they added in the past to improve their game obviously...Or they are just seeing what they can get away with. This gear was also originally meant to be infinitely enchanted as well before they capped it at 15.
  4. Asmodian incentives incoming soon?

    Logged in recently seems like it has the same amount of players as 6.0 release had. So if you considered 6.0 dead then yea it is dead. If you considered 6.0 to be alive then sure the game is still kicking. All comes down to events. No reason to leave town why even leave town unless you wanna find people to grief? there is none.
  5. Customer Service abuse once again @Hime

    Time to throw out some yellow gear and say it was +15 dark talon gear in my support ticket.
  6. Farewell Daevas!

    Rough time to lose a job , See ya. On a side note does that leave just Gideon? Are we down to 1?
  7. End Game topics of interest

    This has been a feature since early Aion. It is not unfair, If you see someone Xform log out/do something else in game for 10-20 mins problem solved. The mechanic has been around and used like this for over 10 years.
  8. Manastone Mayhem Details

    Because sometimes you need it re-posted multiple times for those who refuse to heed the first and second warning LEL.
  9. End Game topics of interest

    I hope you asmo i would hate to think elyos have turned in to this guy. We use to be the nice faction .
  10. Weekly Server Maintenance - April 22, 2020

    Are you getting stones instead? or legitimately just no reward at all?
  11. Elyos hackers and NCsoft doesn't care.

    TRUE!!! i totally forgot about this. Actually this may be where all my frags came from that makes way more sense. From events that gave em to alts then i stored em. RNG does not relate to difficulty aside from having the patients to keep smashing.
  12. Elyos hackers and NCsoft doesn't care.

    The hardest part is patience. Eventually you will get enough materials because the game legitimately gives you everything for just showing up these days. Someone who has 2-3 hours can progress at the same speed someone who plays 16 hours a day unless the person playing 16 hours is paying more or events give out something trade-able. Edit: Well i guess i did forget about fragments so there is that and they do take a while but if you wait around for an event you will eventually have enough anyways with out even playing so again patience. Legit i logged in during the Xmas event i think it was and got 4k frags on my main spending only kinah. It comes down all comes down to hanging around long enough till they legitimately give you everything you need.
  13. Elyos hackers and NCsoft doesn't care.

    Look i liked Aion it was my fave mmorpg but you have to realize it was never going to compete with WoW from the get go. The thing that made WoW so successful was not its PvP but its PvE(specifically PvE servers). Aion came out from the gates saying to it's player base to bad so sad you have to PvP if you want to get to the PvE in our game. Which is why it was a PvPvE game. You can sit here now and try to call me a care bear but i like PvPvE but the reality is over 90% of the player base with-in the mmorpg genre hate it. They want either instant PvP content or No PvP content at all. Along with how poorly cryengine performed on specific PCs i fail to see how anyone can think after playing this game for so long that it had the potential to be the biggest game in the genre...especially since it had to go f2p in the region they are playing in years before it went f2p in its mother region. P.S Why only hate for asmo hackers and not your own factions hackers?
  14. So, in the news...

    Tbh i think this is just people memeing and it caught on. I play Ark: Survival evolved and there is no meme's about raiding the Chinese servers because no one is on defending...In-fact the Chinese tribe servers are full all the time and these servers are based in America so i highly doubt has come in to effect yet and if it has it is very selective as to what they ban access to. I did also see a similar case where 1.5million Taiwan server players lost access to a Chinese game because the publishers refused to stop freedom of speech. Basically long story short the Taiwan players were spamming Wuhan virus/China virus in chat and the Chinese developers wanted them banned but the publishers were not going to ban their entire playerbase so they said no. Then the Chinese developers just ripped the game out+ the servers from them. I was reading something translated that they forcefully took all the server hardware and deleted everything to do with the game off it so all players lost their progression. While i have no idea how true this is because i only found the information about it on websites that have enough ad space to sink the titanic if it were still afloat. I do however know that the Chinese are currently not banned from games i play at the moment. I usually do not trust websites that have that much ad space but that is just me. Just finished watching that video from the inside Gaming and it seems he talked about the Taiwan issue as well.
  15. So, in the news...

    Imagine thinking China is the cause for botting in gaming.
  16. Sad

    Yes but that leaves it at what worked before? There is the obvious things like upgrading materials being sell able on the broker bringing personal shops/trading and what not back. Then it just leaves the problematic mechanics that made the game fun. As an example rifting. Many will say it is a bad mechanic that ruins the game for PvErs and serves no purpose while others can argue most of their fun with-in the game was beating the rifters and gaining access to the instance they were intending to do. Lastly you have the rifters themselves who enjoy being chased around the world by 20 people.

    @Archangelos-KT Since i do not know much about L2 i can not comment so maybe your points are falling short for me. What did L2 do in their overhaul to make it better? Maybe due to this when i think overhauling the game i think bringing back mechanics that worked in the past back to the game while L2 may of done something totally different so we are thinking different wavelengths.

    Removing PvPvE from Aion is removing faction v faction content, This games very foundation is the faction v faction content even the lore is about that. Mistakes made after no PvE servers pale in to comparison how many players Aion would of had from the west if PvP was completely removed from the game. How do you go about fixing the mistake that made your game so great to those who enjoy the PvPvE niche? Beyond this how they screwed up the game differs from person to person. Example: My list No PvE servers(western based view) Event driven gameplay GP system Arena based PvP(primarily the ability to fight your own faction) Instances being changed from daily to weekly CD's How much does your to 5 list differ from mine? How much would someone else's top 5 differ from both mine and your lists of mistakes they have made. You have to think about it. If someone wants a PvE focused game you do not want Aion they want a PvE focused game. That is not revamping/fixing their mistakes that is developing an entirely new game from scratch.

    I doubt it will ever get to that engine upgrade. It had its chance when they did refly Aion update for 6.0 however nothing came of it so i think that boat has sailed.
  20. Sad

    https://aion2.plaync.com/ This is the actual Aion right? HEHEHE
  21. maybe collusion between elyos and asmos?

    Player created issues can only be solved by developer content coming in to the game making what players are currently doing irrelevant. Giving people a reason to take the fortress/risk losing it to the other faction is key to fixing this problem. We know Aion's timeline and what is to come and we know none of that is on the table for fixes so you have to just suck it up.
  22. Evergale Canyon suggestions

    Tbh the only time i have ever seen a 4v4 alliance was when the exploit was going on. Even when i came back at the very start of 6.0 it was mostly 2v2 alliances... That is was mostly X faction doing it in the morning pop against their alts and the other faction waiting till the afternoon to do theirs.
  23. Evergale Canyon suggestions

    So long as you can get rewarded for losing(and even get rewarded for exploiting) people will always take advantage of it. Once the games community gets to small and it feels like the majority are doing this then content will be ruined and really has no opportunity to recover with out intervention from developers. NCsoft/west has made it clear that playing multiple accounts to avoid PvP content is an acceptable playstyle through the content they continue to develop.
  24. Taking advantage of players in a hard time??

    Most of NA players got banned back during the old forum days no one bothered making a new accounts i think this may have lots to do with it.
  25. Players deserve to read this (the nice form)

    Ncsoft/west are doing nothing different to what they have done since tempering solutions hit the game. Cash shop orientated progression has always been in the game since then and will always be around long after the effects of c19 are gone be it 6 months or 5 years. If Aion is still around the same shit will still be going on because NCsoft discriminate against western communities. ESO are having a free weekend to entice players in to buying the expansions while they are on sale(for 2 weeks i think it is) and BDO that have more events to help ease the problems but at the same time add loot boxes to their cash shop that people are spending 1000s and 1000s on. Every company is doing everything they can to improve their financial situation because they are also being affected. Ncwest are still doing the same shit they have always done and that is be a garbage publisher with 0 power to do anything for their communities. There are players that say everything in the past was to expensive and most of the paying players just told them to get a better job. At the very least NCwest is not trying to gain an inflated amount of reputation by stealing emergency funds through "Helping the community mechanics". If anything NCsoft will use this crisis to shut down Aion in the west which they have probably been waiting to do for ages but the big spenders just keep spending so they have no reason to close it.
