Greetings Daevas,

Tomorrow we will be performing our regularly maintenance on Aion at 6am Server Time (4am PT / 7am ET / 12pm UTC). During this maintenance we will be applying an adjustment to test a new HP value for Siel's Eastern Fortress.

The total downtime is not expected to exceed 2 hours 30 minutes. Thank you.

You are trying to fix one of the forts that actually isn't Balaur and it's possible to actually take it..

I think we've all given up at this point.

Do you realize that Sulfur dux has like 10x the HP compared to either Siel's dux? Not even talking about upper forts that nobody even goes to anymore.

after 2 months of not being able to do upper siege and this is what you can come up with

tbh at this point im willing to pay for SUBS just so you and your GM team can play AION classic and to know what is wrong with this game, the most important part of the game is siege and we can't even do it, do you guys even ask why you are losing customer bases left and right ??? do you guys even log in to the game just to see what is wrong with it and report it back to K-devs so they can fix it ?? or u just throwing a few bone now and then. Ppl literally pay for your jobs but you don't even work for it LOL amazing customer service.

I would ask if there was any plan for a server merge after the survey, but if you all can't fix HP values (literally just changing numbers in the codebase) after 2 months then a server merge is a 1 year + out considering that is a lot more complex than changing numbers.

Come on now.... The one fort we are still able to "somewhat properly" siege at??
Testing that won't add value to the future of the server... Test Krotan/Kysis/Miren/Roah/Asteria/Sulphur.... Any fort that's not Siels Eastern/western.
This is like having a major building on fire and throwing in a matchstick to see if it will burn....
Maybe try having more surveys in game to get to know the game and current state of the game a bit.
What also would help is if NCwest would let their employees actually play the game, so they can directly see whats wrong here....

Cause trying a "fix" on Siels Eastern? That ain't it chief.

Going to be real with you, this out of touch approach is killing the game. We have constantly been saying uppers needed the changes as the dux has more hp in mils than our server has population at this point. It's rare for us to even pull together 3 allys of people to do anything surrounding this. 

Both of the siels forts we can take somewhat comfortably but literally get annihilated by dredgion commanders if they land as each commander has 40x the duxs  hp.

I appreciate the attempt but wrong forts to start messing around with, please choose sulfur, roah, or asteria at the very least.

Side note anyone wanna take bets the HP nerf is actually a buff to the siels dux?

As you can see everyone is crying, I for one am happy you are taking necessary action on Siel's Eastern Fortress. Hopefully after the patch the community will see how necessary this adjustment is to the health of the server.

I think you guys aren't getting it. Forts were never meant to be taken. The fact that Siel West/East are still being taken is clearly a bug and poor game design.

 

Siel-East dux hp will be changed so that it can also never be taken anymore. Thanks @Kibbelz!

Why no news about the server merge we had a survey on a few weeks ago? Why is there literally 0 communication.

It's pretty obvious to anyone that 99% of the population voted yes on that survey.

It's probably still sitting unread in someone's inbox

Server with 100 players, nice update.

Why do you even care?  You posted on October 14th and again on November 4th that you were quitting.  So quit already.  Why the salt?

 

Game is fun, enjoying it.  Looking forward to 1.7 and eventually 2.0.  Sieges are hardly 'the more important thing' in Aion ... heck, most players don't go to them or can't go to them because it's strains their PC too much.  I'll be happy when fort instances are released and Divine.  Looking forward to running some Abyssal Splinter again.  Very nice instance.  The population will come and go like they do in every other game, especially classic versions.  But there's enough people playing to have fun. 

The updates will come, I'm patient.  I like the game and that's all that really matters.  Sorry that you don't, but everyone has a narrative.  Peace

Perception doesn't really rate things as equal for everyone as you're kind of making it sound like.

I'm willing to be more people feel the way we do than you do. And besides, the game can be "fun", but at the same time it's on hardcore drought mode and the fun is diminishing quickly. And just because they quit doesn't mean they don't -wanna- play the game, or don't wanna have reasons to come back and play, or don't care about it.

People definitely wanna go to siege... if it wasn't such a s-show. I'm willing to be most people have PC's today that can arguably handle sieges too.

I feel I need to reiterate, a lot of your narrative above, using your language, is orientated around -you-, and I think there's many more people who are not delusioned enough by "making due" to see the game is in a really bad state.

 

I'm happy to have what we have but I'm sensible enough to know it's crumbs of a cookie that could have been.

So the Dredge spawns on Siel's East and the Balaur Commander 2 shot the Dux in about 10 sec.

So much for the  "fix"

What is wrong with these game devs?

Did someone who actually understands the game design leave?

The Dux was nerfed, but the commanders have over TWO HUNDRED AND FOURTY MILLION HP.  They literally THREE-HIT-KILLED the dux and took the fort in about 30 seconds flat, with near full attendance (at the current population level.)

 

Forts are UNDEFENDABLE at the moment, and Siels East has been dredge'd five times in a row, after all 5 captures. This an incomprehensible level of incompetency.

The commands are not only unkillable, they do over 8.6mil damage per use of Dragon Lord Blade... That makes it 100% impossible to pull aggro off of the Dux, and the Dux having 26mil hp fully buffed and scrolls it dies in 3 hits. What is even going on with this game.

Please tell me what genius decided to nerf the Dux HP, but then not nerf the dredge commander's HP or damage output.

Like it would be funny at this point if it wasn't so sad. How hard is it to simply revert the HP values to pre 1.5 levels for the entire abyss. That is completely doable and is the easiest response. 

Its just sad at this point.
