  1. Partnership with 3rd parties

    We agree! Do you think that the effort they put into this week's maint might indicate that the game isn't as dead as you thought and perhaps the staff -is- willing to put some effort into the game and might.. just might.. take @Neleth-KT's suggestion seriously?
  2. Partnership with 3rd parties

    Yes. You got me. (Me irl between posts.) Now that you have so eloquently stated your opinion, can we get back to talking about @Neleth-KT's suggestion? Do you have an opinion on that?
  3. The amount of abject joy in this thread is really heartening.
  4. Partnership with 3rd parties

    @Aiyanna-DN.. wtf are you talking about? I said it's a great idea but that it would require effort that the staff hasn't been know to want to put into Aion. How does that make me a problem here? Or did you just see my name and the number of posts and then failed to actually -read- what I wrote and then post something snarky? (Pro tip: Your snark goes much further if you actually read.) To get back to @Neleth-KT's suggestion. With the update we are getting today (which actually shows effort), maybe the staff will pick up on your idea! It would be really great if they did.
  5. Wow. WOW. Changes and updates and THINGS.
  6. Exploits approved and encouraged

    I don't mind an event where you get a better reward when you are better geared. We have plenty of events where you don't need any gear at all. So the occasional event that rewards in relation to gear isn't that horrible. Rakesh has a point about the hook. The video I watched didn't even bother picking it up, because you honestly don't need it if you play the event "legit". My main has no issues. My alts (in CoE gear), rescue 6 shugos and I am good with that as well. I have watched the videos that use the hook to take the tachysphere up to the mini-bosses and it does seem that they place mobs in exact positions to allow you to use the hook to get it up there. So I'm not sure it's an exploit or even a glitch. Using the duel wield old weapons in the shugo vault just made the thing go faster but wasn't required to actually get an S rank. That event was totally doable in crap-geared alts without using any kinds of exploit/glitch. So that really wasn't much of an exploit. As Cake pointed out, even the "fair" flower event had an exploit/glitch. I have come to expect things like this and they don't phase me any more. All of this is separate and apart from actual hacks (3rd party programs). I think we can question the "buginess" of events without conflating those bugs/exploits/glitches with actual hacking.
  7. Steel Rake Reward

    There will be no changes to this event now that it has started. Cyan told us that the gem reward was a mistake. They are used in a later event and will be deleted from our inventories before that event begins.
  8. Partnership with 3rd parties

    This is the bottom line for everything. It's a good suggestion, Neleth. Unfortunately it requires effort.
  9. Bye bye Bless Online

    I played the beta and then the launch of FFXIV. I wanted to like that game so much, but it was a mess. Plain and simple. I again played after the Reborn launch and, yes. They had listened to their players. Apparently (according to you as I have only ever played BDO casually) so have the devs of BDO. And that is what we lack here. We make suggestions here on the forums. Cyan has stated that he has passed those one. Somewhere from the time our suggestions leave Cyan's hands the communication breaks down. Add to that that Korea doesn't seem to care what a Western audience wants and you have a perfect recipe for frustration and anger.
  10. The veilenthrone

    @Matsukamy-KT already covered that the lore will be given in some way in 7.0. Probably along with a nerf to the instance which will give everyone access to this instance. So that really isn't an issue. I really agree with your second paragraph with an emphasis on the bolded section. Because gearing can mean a ridiculous amount of luck and, yes, SKILL.. it's disgusting to see people down playing the effort that went into that first A rank. It's very much akin to the player that got a Kaisinel transform and posters attacked him for being pay2win. So much so that he felt he had to defend himself for being lucky! It was jealously plain and simple. Same here. The group in DN-A put in tons of time not only gearing, but working on downing that instance and should receive nothing but congratulations. Instead they feel they have to come here and defend themselves for being geared! It's sickening.
  11. The veilenthrone

  12. Anyone knows who has the name Vayne?

    True. Probably not enough time to release names yet.
  13. The veilenthrone

    As opposed to your own group who made S rank in unenchanted CoE gear and green transforms, right?
  14. About the Steel Rake Fortress event...

    Lol. You apparently know who I am, but you don't actually read what I write.. unless it's in contrast to what you are saying. If you had been actually paying attention and not just flailing around in a blind panic, you would see that I am often critical of NCSoft. And more and more often, actually. That doesn't mean I am -always- critical. There are some things that are fine. Some things that are actually well done! Not as often as they used to be, but it does occasionally happen. So you point a finger at me, I can point one right back. They could hand us +15 Ultimate gear the moment we login and someone like you would find fault with it. I have been playing this game (and posting) since 2009. You don't need to explain to me how this game has progressed and how the playerbase has gone down. Aion is hardly the only game where this has happened. Even the crowned king of MMOs, WoW, is experiencing a dip in playerbase. The age of MMOs is coming to an end, it seems. NCSoft is not doing a bang up job with Aion. The communication between the devs and our team at NCWest has broken down. Not sure where. But no one can dispute that it has. There are some things that are seriously wrong with Aion (the whole game) and with just our version of Aion (that aren't an issue in other regions). This event isn't one of them. There is absolutely nothing wrong with an event that gives greater rewards to those who have been actually playing the game and doing well in it.. and thus are geared. There is nothing wrong with an event that requires no gear. We get both. These events (either kind) are not even in the top 10 of things wrong with the game. Like you, I am just a player and I have as much right as you to post. You, ofc, don't have to read it. Especially if it makes your little tummy sick. So head on over to my name on the left side of this post. Hover over my name and click IGNORE USER. But don't you ever tell me or anyone else that we don't have the right to post just because we don't agree with your very narrow view of the world.
  15. The veilenthrone

    It's not ignored. The top players are trying to down it. Other players are working to gear to try it. It's a challenge. Without it there are players that would have nothing to work for. Try to keep in mind that everyone needs to get something from the patch. Those that dink around and have trouble even leveling and those that already have +15 full ult everything.
  16. About the Steel Rake Fortress event...

    @Gwin-DN You can "reach the end" with every character every single time. You just have to know your limitations. I am running this on several CoE geared characters for different rewards and am having zero problems. I just don't get all the shugos. I will be able get each one of them a couple nice rewards by the end of the event. There is nothing wrong with an event that gives more rewards for those characters with more gear. Every other event we have had lately could be done on 100% nakkies characters. Complaining that this event is different is just plain silly. As for PF and IDD being made a tad harder, it's been months since then! Have you not made up the gear difference yet? If you haven't, that's on you. Somethings need to be a challenge just like some things need to be less of a challenge in order to keep -everyone- interested.
  17. The veilenthrone

    We've never had information on instances outside of the little story put out by the devs when the instance released and then videos of other regions downing the instance. So that's hardly weird. There is usually one instance that the majority of the playerbase ignores until the instance gets nerfed (and something harder is released). That's not weird either. If the instance is stressing you out, then you can ignore it as well until it gets nerfed since, as you pointed out, the stat increase for the rewards is minimal. I actually think that is is good to have at least -one- super challenging thing for those 1%-ers to strive for, even if it's just to cross it off their bucket list.
  18. Anyone knows who has the name Vayne?

    Did you write to Support and ask for the name? In the past, if an account had been inactive for a period of years, they would give the names to other players. Not sure they still do, but it's worth a try.
  19. Trading low lever gear

    We've asked for some items (these white armor pieces and crafting material) be made at least account tradeable. NCWest took our suggestion to NCKorea (the devs). The answer we got back through Cyan was that there was an issue with coding some of these things tradeable. We weren't given any further information. Perhaps NCWest wasn't given any further information. Anyway.. sounds like a "no" to me.
  20. Anyone else crashed during event?

    Well that's the first time I have seen that answer. "We don't have any issues in our servers"? Yikes.
  21. Anyone else crashed during event?

    It's not the first time. Support doesn't Aion. They don't know what patch we are on. They don't understand the current systems. They often give answers that are patches and years out of date. Sometimes it feels like they don't even know what an "Aion" is.
  22. Glitch? Bug? Exploit?

    He's comparing his own equipped item (the legendary) with the equipped item of the other player (the ultimate one that appears to have 6 manastone slots). Both are equipped but on different players.
  23. Bye bye Bless Online

    Bless was a great game in theory. The game play and the story were fantastic. I played for months and really enjoyed the game. Yeah. Those technical issues were a huge problem and they continued to plague the game. They tried to address them and tried to fix things quickly (things like poor translations were fixed within days), but the damage had been done. When that resulted in a hugely reduced playerbase, they had a flawless merge within weeks. (Anyone else remember mergers in Aion taking over a year? lol) The duping and the hacking and blah. When I quit, the staff had just stopped responding and it was obvious at that point that they were going to milk the game for as much cash as possible with as little effort as possible until they just took the servers down. What I don't see is the connection between Bless and the transformation system. If there is any connection between what happened to Bless and where we are in Aion is that lack of communication and effort. Just like what happened with Bless, it seems that NCWest is just not putting in effort on our behalf. Does that mean that Aion is going to go down like Bless did? Maybe. We shall see, right?
  24. Create custom alternate server

    I know what to say. Everyone has their own idea of what a "perfect" Aion server would look like. And that's fine. I don't much like yours and I acknowledge that you wouldn't like mine much. All of that is fine and really just an exercise in "what if" imaginings. What I think would be more productive is to have NCWest actually -listen- to our reasonable suggestions for the game we are playing right now and then take those to NCKorea and -fight- for them on our behalf.
