About Morrigan-KT

  1. aion is dying

    It's not just Aion. All MMORPG's are at the twilight. When even the mighty WoW is losing money, that's when you know the ship's taking on water and sinking fast. Unless something truly innovative comes along, I feel like what we've been seeing for the past couple of years, (the slow death of MMORPG's), will finally come to pass. Maybe VRMMORPG's could be the new hot thing. Just hope they come with safe logging off options standard.
  2. I was there, during the golden age of Aion.

    The beginning was oh so bitter sweet. So many great battles and at the same time oh so many frustrating failed attempts at leveling due to level 40 +10 abyss gear laden uber elmo sins and the like. Still my favorite personal aion moment had nothing to do with conflict at all, and yet, it turned into my most lasting memory of this game. I recall being on my Templar "patrolling" Morheims Patamor Ridge Path road leading down through Kellans Cabin and the spring habitat into the desert, (on one of my usual looking for random Elmo runs), when I spotted two of them out in the distance. I immediately prepped for battle and charged straight towards them. Much to my amazement, despite obviously spotting my lumbering mass of a templar, (maxed size at all) they didn't move, didn't even flinch. I caught up to them, stopped about 10m in front of them and \waved, they waved back. I immediately sheathed my sword and got in closer, still wary of them. Through "shop stand talk" one of them asked me for directions to a certain location, apparently they were looking for Deltras Execution Grounds in order to complete a quest. I told them sure I knew and to follow and so they did. To me this was amazing. Here we were, an asmo templar escorting two elyos, (I forget what classes they were), down the sprigg path, through the desert, an up to the deltas grounds. Along the way, we ran into an asmo sin whom wasted no time in attacking the female pigeon. I immediately yelled for him to stop, claiming they were personal friends and that I was helping them complete a quest, (lying of course.) To my amazement he bought it, broke engagement, backed up and proceeded to walk away. So we finally reached our destination, I stood watch as they both completed their quests. Once they did they returned over to me, and expressed their thanks for my help and proceeded to bow, I in turn replied that it was no problem and bowed in turn. They then activated their call home spells and wisked away into the aether. I remember feeling so satisfied about that event, (and just a slight bit like a traitor.) It was, almost moving. Make no mistake, the road to leveling my Templar through 1.5 - 2.0 was taxing, arduous and tedious. I had no love for elmo and actively sought out their "blood". But for that one moment, I felt compelled to act not with violence, but kindness. And you know what, I'm glad I did. (Sorry for the short story lol. Still vividly recall that event to this day.)
  3. EK Server Situation

    All of this could've been avoided. Regardless, the only way I can see NCWest saving EK hence avoiding yet another troublesome merge is by differentiating it from the other two. Justify its existence. Turn it into some sort of special rules server, or perhaps a "Legacy" server. Otherwise it's doomed and we all know what the inevitable outcome will be.
  4. Siege EK Lakrum

    Shame no one saw this coming. If only we could have predicted the great folly that would be, opening a new server barely a year after merging the last new server mistake. To bad there was no prior history of this we couldve pointed to as a means of helping NCSoft avoid repeating this seemingly perpetual mistake... Again... Again. Oh well. Smh.
  5. Incoming layoffs for NCwest and hopfully Gideon....

    Or, here's a thought, how about $0 for allowing us to see our own f$&king characters as we originally created them? Who in their right mind is going to pay $10+ on a single one time use costume when their toons will be hidden behind some God awful furry costume illusion which can't be hidden UNLESS they purchase a special scroll that hides it for them for more cash? Wanna know why your business model is failing here in the west NCSoft, (besides making monumentally stupid decisions like this furry costume scroll disaster among others)? It's simple, western gaming tastes are different than eastern gaming tastes. Had you actually invested time and money into figuring that out, (which I thought was the whole point of NCWest), perhaps your aging games wouldn't be so close to collapse. So much for "listening to your western players and catering to their specific needs" . You ignore us...we ignore you. Taking things out on your underlings who's only crime was following your asinine orders to the T will solve nothing. You'll continue to copy paste Korean patches over to the West and hope we simply adapt, but we won't. Western players will continue to reject your ideas, and continue to leave in droves and not until the end will you finally see the error of your ways. Oh well, live and learn. Though in your case, I won't be holding my breath waiting for that to happen.
  6. Transparent Scrolls (yet again)

    When we've reached the point, (as MMO gamers), wherein we're forced to beg developers to allow us to give them our RL cash in order to be able to *temporarily* see the characters we create, (as we created them), that's when you know, MMORPG's are truly dead.
  7. haha hey boiz

    I hereby name this thread, "A Descent into Madness: One player's struggle with multiple personality disorder."
  8. KR - Popular games. - Aion @15th (Jan 23-29 2019)

    Since when is ranking 15th at anything a sign of "doing well"? Anyways, looking at that list forces me to call into question native Korean gamer tastes. I mean...Maplestory 4th? Really?!? Suddenly the carefully catered changes to Aion, (like forced furry transformations), start to make sense somehow.
  9. 'Member when...

    This happened: And this: I sure do. "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." - George Santayana
  10. Can't make a poll... Idk why

    If only we could have forseen EK's eventual demise. If only we could have, somehow, attempted to warn against an obviously foolish decision to open YET ANOTHER server less than a year after Aion's last server merge. (Or opening a new server at all considering how many merges came before that.) Oh well, ce la vie. "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
  11. AION players. I think it's all or nothing.

    Pretty much what I did. Been at this too long to waste precious emotions over what cannot be controlled. In a way I'm grateful Aions become what it has. Its forced me to broaden my horizons. Had never played FF14 for example. Installed, tried it...immediately uninstalled Aion. Oh what I have missed... So thanks NCsoft, from the bottom of my wallet...er...I mean heart.
  12. The game used to be sub based remember? You needed to purchase the game AND sub to be able to play. The game still failed. HENCE the move to F2P. What makes you think NCSoft would get it right this time? More likely the KSoft overlords would pocket the money and/or use the wests funds to further advance the eastern game/base. (The only one they truly care about.) Or use it to fund whatever mobile style cash grab or battle royale game they most certainly have in the works. You guys should know how NCSoft rolls by now.
  13. Excessive loading time fix?

    Yeah my bad, I was just frustrated and my vocabulary skills left me lol. I'd edit it myself but I no longer have the option. If you could, is it possible that you could change the title to "Excessive loading time fix?" please?
  14. Excessive loading time fix?

    Okay so turns out "ValidTableDump" was set to "0". Dunno how or why but whatever. Unchecked "read only" edited the value to "1", checked "read only" again and after an initial load up I closed, tried again, and it seems to be back to normal now. Thank you Liiny and Rakesh for pointing me in the right direction! Cause I was starting to get salty perpetually staring at that loading bar lol.
  15. Excessive loading time fix?

    Thank you! Yeah I've never encountered this before and I've been playing this game since 1.5. Only thing that comes close is the aformentioned, (by you), send log loading bars that I get after logging back in after certain crashes. But even that was usually a one time thing. Then every proceeding log in attempt went by smoothly and quickly. Gonna give it a try. Yeah my first inclination was to blame some sort of file change, but I dont recall any updates between the last time I played and today. Well whatever the case I'll check these files and see if I can correct this annoying issue. Thanks as well!
