  1. Well, constructive criticism (Thank Say)

    I don't think that you are harassing me, @KonkersGG-EK. It's fine if you feel that I am naive. It's just that I have been around Aion for almost 10 years. I have seen players bring change to the game and I have seen players be ignored. I have a sense of what works or might work and what won't. Spamming Say's post (which was rather long) several dozens times marginalizes what he is trying to say. That's for certain. I was trying to suggest ways that have worked in the past so that his words can be heard. @Noonga-KT says that Say wrote to Cyan, Hime and Gideon already and received no response. That strikes me as weird as a thoughtful message to Cyan usually receives a response. It was the same message posted on the forums? Hmm. Maybe collect signatures to give it more weight than just one player's words? As to why Korea told the staff that they couldn't account bind crafting mats.. I don't know and we aren't likely to know the whys. We were just told that they can't for "various" reasons. I agree that's BS. We've found work arounds for passing mats to other characters but it's far from easy and results in the loss of kinah, which is already harder to acquire. All types of players have been very clear what we would like to see in game. So far, very little of that has materialized. I totally agree that communication between the game and the players is at an all time low. I would also like to see that change. I'm just pointing out what will absolutely not work since it hasn't in the past.
  2. Well, constructive criticism (Thank Say)

    I don't think it's what Say said that got all the posts removed, it was how others were relaying their support of what he said. I checked in Tuesday night to look at the maint thread and there were already dozens of reposts to the point that the thread was unreadable. And Say's words were lost in that, shown by how Cyan deleted all the copies -and- the original. That the community isn't being heard is not in doubt. So there is a break down somewhere. Ideas go from the forums to Cyan to Gideon and then to devs in Korea. (There may be some steps between Gideon and the devs which we aren't aware of.) If you believe that Cyan isn't picking the ideas up from the forums, you could send him a message.. and I am talking a single message. To lend wait to it you could add signatures of main accounts at the bottom or in an attachment. This way he gets one post and still has the weight of many people agreeing. If you think the problem is that the messages aren't getting from Cyan to Gideon, you could send the message directly to Gideon. And so on. Or one person (Say?) could post on an official NCWest social media account and then just let players post in reply that they agree. (Again.. don't spam the message over and over.)
  3. Updates

    The quests have been streamlined and the rewards made meaningful for the current state of the game. You will notice now that you should do every quest you see as they will give you all the gear you need until you reach 76+ and will start to run instances and do camps and things for end-game gear. So it's true that most of the old quests are gone (along with some of the areas), but the way things are now do make things easier as you no longer have to pick through quests from as far back as 2009 that give rewards that are no longer relevant. Welcome back.
  4. Arena of Harmony

    People are already exploiting by queuing against alts so there are 30 first place winners. What's one more exploit at this point?
  5. Event rewards be like..
  6. So this happened..

    I'm going to hell for this, but this statement actually made me laugh out loud.
  7. Just felt relevant (from ages ago).. And then there was this thing. I just.. can't.. where is her neck?! Take that Boobs'N'Soul!
  8. So this happened..

    You got me. PvP scares me and I never do it. Teehee.
  9. So this happened..

    rubbish talk in game doesn't take any time, you know? It's spur of the moment or it's prepared and translated phrases. It's rarely personal. I did once have a couple of people camp my body for 5 minutes and yell, "Go back to the forums!". But that was a "special" case. This person logged into the forums and typed up a message! Tons of time to think about it and think, "Nah. It's not that big of a deal. I really shouldn't do this."
  10. So this happened..

    So I logged into Aion and, after doing the 10 kill quest, my legion decides to do a legion run for PF. There were a couple of people in the group with good gear, another couple with decent gear, someone really working on gear and an alt with no gear. A couple of us were out and about when the group was formed, so we went right to PF and took the artifact next to it and waited for the others. Apparently there were a bunch of Elyos hanging around outside of Archon, because some of the group couldn't make it to us and had to go around. While we were standing there an Elyos runs right at us, fears us and makes a break for PF. Our templar yanks them back and we kill them. We might have killed another Elyos, but tbh I can't remember. We stand around for another minute or so waiting on the last members of the group and enter as soon as they arrive. Leather drops and ofc we don't have any leather. Typical PF run. Later I check the forums to see what is happening here and find this in my mailbox.. Does this nyerk happen to anyone else or am I just lucky? What goes through someone's mind that makes them think that hate-mail is the appropriate response to getting killed in a PvP area?

    I am not sure I believed them or didn't believe them. It's not like anyone forced them to make the statement. I guess I hoped what they said was true, though I am not surprised that it wasn't.

    Cyan said that they didn't want to have people advance from events only. That they wanted to put things in the game that would be the main way to advance with gear. Then they went and put ancient contracts in events and selectable legendaries and etc. They pretty much went back to giving us the biggest opportunities to advance in events! So it wouldn't surprise me if they continued down that path.

    Event rewards are decided by NCWest. The events come from Korea with vanilla rewards and NCWest can change them however they like (within reason). Cyan would just need to let Gideon know ahead of time and Gideon would have to agree that we can have PvP stones and fighting spirits in our rewards.
  14. instance queues

    That's not what you said before.. Pretty much proves that you really just want to whine and argue. So have at it.
  15. instance queues

    I said.. apply to one in LFG or MAKE YOUR OWN. Put in your post "no afk" and take whoever applies. Some people say something like, "no afk.. for fun". Anything to show that you just want a group to try, which is what you say you want. You said yourself that you weren't looking to win. You were just looking for 5 other people to try. If you solo queue, you run a huge risk of getting people that will not actually push enter when the instance pops. Is that worth it? Wouldn't seem to be so. So the tiny bit of effort that you would need to toss a group in to LFG would seem to be worth it. Unless you aren't actually looking for an explanation or a solution to the situation that made you post in the first place and instead just want to have an argument with anyone stupid enough to take your post seriously.
