New or Returning player insight.


Kalion

Recommended Posts

Yo, so I recently returned to the game a bit after the major events that pretty much gave the entire player base decked out gear. So I am going off my experience as a returning player or even seeing new players come forth.

I have noticed the recent trend that Legions won't uptake people unless they are completely decked out or at least basically there. I'm not knocking requirements and I do understand, but how is it also fair to those who are new to the game or returning if almost every legion is gatekeeping them from helping the person into the endgame content? I noticed legions tend to now do everything together which that is what they were designed for, but when people who can't even get into a legion due to high quality demands, it makes it harder to have the motivation to attempt end game content. 

I don't know if this is just the Elyos side or even the Asmo side. But again, as a new or returning player, it honestly makes it hard of wanting to even continue forth into the game if being able to partake in community activities requires the player to basically be alone until legions find them even remotely worthy rather than extend hands to help fellow players up to those levels. I understand the passes exist, do not get me wrong, I know even myself as a player can utilize those very passes. But I think a lot of people also forgot the literal joy and fun of being in an mmorpg in the first place. To me Aion Classic just feels like a toxic elitist pool for no reason and that does sadden me because it's like folks forgot that everyone was literally in rags and gathering together to achieve the riches.

Just my insight on the matter, please do not misunderstand. I fully well know that Legions and players have the right to place the bar of who they accept into the legions and don't. But at the same time, I rarely don't even see people want to get together outside of legions to help out legionless players. It's gotten even to the point that legionless players don't try to party up and do stuff or I could also just be logging in on the wrong times and people just don't feel like doing anything. I acknowledge that too can be a possibility.

 

This last is my question based off what I see every time... why do people give up or log off each time they are killed in pvp?? I figured everyone understood that when playing this game that has faction vs faction, your pixels are bound to die at times. In the past, that was a rare thing ESPECIALLY when AP was much harder to earn. But now, it's like seeing someone just opting to give up rather than press on. If I am being too harsh on that I do apologize but.. I do find it extremely sad. Play games like Gw2 and people die but still go back to the fights because they all knew the game and the mode they were playing in.

 

Sorry for the wall of text. I guess it can also be a wall of vent too lol

If someone is to return back to aion then why push them away?? We could use more people to join the population and help build the game!! Regardless if they is elyos or asmos, just seeing more people out there besides other alts would be great for the game regardless if people see the game useless of joining again and if they decide to play and quit later then it is what it is but dont show them the door before they even took a step back into it..

True,

I play on the EU servers and NA servers each day, basically  because Siel is dead at my prime time because NA is asleep,  during my  evenings. At that time, the EU servers are incredibly busy. The playing experience on Siel when NA is not asleep, is way better than the EU servers, XP and AP rates are better, daeva pass is cheaper, event rewards are better. Most EU players don't realize that, and keep grinding away on their overcrowded, less rewarding servers. (try doing a siege on Atreia, it's a joke) My point being, there is a good case for attracting players from EU to the NA servers if the timezone is suitable.
