  1. Getting our requests through is not an issue with kibbelz. It is somewhere between kibbelz and the upper management all the way over to KR NCsoft's HQ. It is simply there is no requests that can be granted at the base level of CM so they really have nothing to report.

    Kibbelz has advocated for us but the reality is the upper management cherry pick what they want to work on and they see the game in $ signs not in game mechanics. This is why for example the list Kibbelz compiled of the communities gripes with Aion at that point in time was never worked on fully by who ever was working on it. They cherry picked events/cash shop based progression and improved them slightly and ignored the rest.

    That was not kibbelz problem they did their part they followed up it was simply some one who has more power than kibbelz with-in NCwest/ncsoft decided that every other idea we had that made the list was worth scrapping and not telling us about it.

    Since we all have no idea how NCwest/soft works we can only speculate since none of us work at NCwest.

  2. I do not get where you are going with this meme, What did someone say that made you upset that the forum needs extra moderators. There is nothing to moderate right now so why does kibblez need to be active right now?

    New World comes out around in August, yeah? Well if they want success, they actually have to do it before that date. I played Elyon beta and can't say it's a good Mmorpg (but that's another topic), but from what I've seen it's planned to be released in Q4. Also, FFXIV is going to release their fourth expansion in November, so NCWest and Gameforge have very little time.

    Aion classic can be released at the same time FF14 gets released because FF14's player base is 99.95% PvErs. New world and Elyon are both promoted with PvP as one of its main features. 

    All be it even if Aion classic gets a perfect release there are still going to be issues that are going to drive players away from the game simply because it is very hardcore when it comes to players ability to grief.

    It's going to be soon. I'm fairly confident about that; they can't afford to even risk launching it after New World or Elyon, or it's DOA. If they don't launch it soon they shouldn't launch it this year at all, and I'm sure they know that.

    Especially if they plan to use word of mouth as their marketing strategy. Releasing just after NW/Elyon would be insane.

    Heck they might even publish a classic server and forget they even did it.

    I was talking about this which would be pretty funny if it randomly just appears on the NClauncher and then like a few days later and then go yea btw classic is out.

    It is sad that we have that little faith in NCwest/soft now days tbh.

    Makes more sense announcing it as an anniversary event than during E3 if you ask me, but frankly, I´d prefer they announcing it during the E3,  just to have the game at the earliest.

    I mean E3 would reach a larger audience but it would be surprising if they bought time in E3 to promote it.

  7. The teasers could just be teasers for E3 in which then they may release the classic video at E3 for all we know. Altho if this is the case it is a little weird to do that since E3 is a promotional event for up-coming games so promoting for a promotional event seems odd. It would not surprise me in the least if it still comes out as an anniversary launch so w/e our anniversary is.

    There's more likes on social media for a 10 second classic teaser than there are people playing the current build of retail.

    Not to mention that most people will not download retail Aion to talk about Aion classic on the forums due to the 30 day lock out BS. This means we mostly get people who are invested in retail talking to those who have retail downloaded to talk about classic.

    Why? We already have a whole forum dedicated to Aion right here with several Aion Classic threads which you have been spamming ads for fb into.

    fb is for tracking people.

     

    Because it is easier to join a FB group than download retail in which you do not want to play and then wait till it recognizes you have logged in so you can finally talk on the forums.

    * with 8.0 the hype will be huge and many players will back to play it and get milked x2

    The only people that are going to get milked by 8.0 are those who are already being milked now.

    No one is going to play classic and then go OMG 8.0 is coming out, Time to return to never being able to PvP till i am around for enough catch up events. I seen people PvP in the free +15 gear they give you. They experience for a returning user would be no different than them returning during any time in the past year.

    Yeah, it does suck having to wait long periods for an event especially to acquire such an important thing. I came back to the game last July after a long break, I got my first Legendary via lugbug weeklies. By the time the first Ultimate promotion came around, I was a long way off being eligible, but they told is it would return. I spent that time between then up until March of this year acquiring all the free Legendaries from events, combining, and lugbug weeklies until I had enough and I was finally able to get Tiamat during the last promotion.

     

    I am just pointing out how you are sugar coating it.

    So it looks like they addressed things like faction skills and BoQ. Did they address the issue of world bosses favoring elyos or are we headed for another imbalanced launch when aion came here?

    We all know they failed hard to lock off the faction that had more people rolling on it. They NEED to do a better job this time around even if it means keeping elyos side locked.

    No, World bosses are still elyos dominated but depending on the server and the patch we get at release GL getting across to do drap cave which is one of 2 end game instances until DP arrives. Which is especially important for glads.

    When we did it in KR you were always fighting between 50-500 asmo's camping the door so elyos can not get in to the instance.

    Also no need to really worry about elyos domination we are in 2021 and people think playing the asmo race is cool now days. The issue with balance in KR is that they left 1 side open for to long.

    Most servers have been locked for asmo's in KR. Asmo domination in KR it will be interesting to see what our region has.

    If it takes the avg player 6 months to get an ultimate transform

    Actually for me and it is the reason i am so in to playing classic Aion. The issue is the progression path. In classic if i want mira/fenris or even PvP gear i have to put effort in to the game's core mechanics. It may take me 6mo to get or it may take me 1mo to get but it all depends on the effort i put in.

    When it comes to getting an ultimate transformation in 6mo you are having to rely on an event that NA may never put out again. There is no guarantee they want to continue with that event every 6mo and we have only had what 2 of them.

    Beyond that they always use the storm wing event... that has came out 2 times and a year apart. If you start now you will not see that event for 10 mo- to a year more than likely.

    @Aelar-DNTell me how many players have gotten ultimate transformations through core gameplay loop excluding being rewarded through events(because events are gifts to players for staying around for long enough in a game not a core gameplay loop)?

    Edit: When the answer is well you just have to be around when a good event comes out and then you can catch up as the answer you know the game is going to have issues, Like vin said Live in KR is doing bad while classic has 7 servers.

    since classic NA server will hardly rely on pay2play, battle pass will indeed be a source of great advantage, and more p2w mechanics are to come

    good luck for the nostalgic ones that want to play this obsolete version

    You think more than 0.05% of players are going to pay $100-130 for 5 enchant stones and 6 manastones? 7k+ only if you get 100% success rate on enchanting every single item to +10 you upgrade your gear and more if you duel wield.

    That is per character btw and that is assuming we have same prices as KR. I dunno why people are saying you can reset the battle pass. Is there some video on this information? When i played no one talked about resetting the battle pass the only thing people did was exploit the crowns for the gifting system.

    What all the KR streamers that i watched did was buy new battle passes on other characters to get the rewards and send the tradeable items to your main character.

    I know some people will but the reality is the players who play Aion classic vs the amount of people who will have 7800 disposable income is so low.

    Yes i get players will obtain other items from the battle pass but until people start getting judgement/graceful and other level 35+ golds you will not see the high level enchant stones you need to enchant your gear so you would be relying on the battle pass for the first 2-3 weeks at least. 

    Now on to the silver lining, The first battle pass will have silver/gold/plat coins(and i think even bronze i forget.) If someone buys 60 battle passes they will also get 24,000 of each coin added to the market place and will make them dirt cheap so people can obtain great progression gear for really cheap. 

    Beyond this those who spend 7k are never going to move servers if a new one comes out which at least 1 will due to bot and foreign population influx(if we get it before EU) so you can simply just play on the new server in which will have 1000s of players transfer to as well since they do not want to deal with the players who spent that much.

    There is going to be those who will pay in anyway to get an advantage, Hell i know people who are preparing to hire pilots to grind on other accounts and feed them kinah if the candy selling is removed so they do not have to rely on kinah sellers for the first 2 months. This is how far people will go even if companies do not add things like a battle pass to the game.

  15. In classic if you want to gather but get bored of gathering and want to PvP you can do that because you will always find people around your gear level to pvp with/against.

    Aion retail appeals to those who want exclusive PvE experience till they can finally participate in PvP for 6+ months(excluding the battlefield event that is going on).

    They are 2 different games using the same combat systems.

    you know Laughing has done more for the Aion community than anyone.

    Is this directed at the person with 1 post? What has laughing done for the Aion community, Since i never knew of the name laughing till 6.0 i have no idea who it even is.

    Well you know right elite attitudes exploiting newbies not caring anyone are primary reasons that Aion died in the first place.

    If it has to be that way then let bury it down. I'm not trying to justified anything I said neither I have to prove it. Time itself will tell if it's working or not.

    That is not the primary reason, People left because they came for the WoW killer and got no PvE servers. When over 50% of initial player base does not want PvP people will leave. This is, in turn a marketing issue. This is why Aion classic will be known as a PvPvE game this time around players that can not stomach vsing elites will not play Aion classic.

    Personally i expect a maximum of 2 possibly 3 servers for Aion classic in the NA region due to exactly what you said and the fact people will not play. We just have to wait and see.
