Player's choice event survey, what to vote and why

Recommended Posts

Everyone should be voting for Kromede's revenge which was the event that had the event instance Smoldering Fire Temple. It was the a 3 player instance of level 40+ that gave  decent amount of exp for the bosses and rewards were top tier even after the nerf bat. This event was very well received from the community and had a great participation rate and the Ncoin investment proves this was one the players enjoyed.

Vote for this event

The other two event instances Shugo Kingdom adventure and Shugo Emperor vault were also 3 player event instances and you transformed into shugos. The mechanics of the events in their lastest iterations were well fine tuned in terms of balance and it was worth your time participating for the rewards it gave. Water dragon weapon skins were the most coveted for the Kingdom adventure while the very unique and powerful level 65 Trillurinerk (probably spelt it wrong) wings. It will be interesting how this will work with post 65 content.

Shugo Emperor Vault https://na.aiononline.com/en/news/events/02042015-shugo-emperors-vault.php

 

The other 3 events were poorly implemented, unfair, not suited for modern age Aion or just plain suck and this is why.

Giving Grove, had good community participation for the trees, however the execution of the event and the way it was rewarded was just bad. 1500 seeds to upgrade a tree, and only those who were in charge of upgrading it actually got something good. The rest of the player base with tier 3 trees (fully upgraded trees) could use 200 or so fertiliser or whatever it was and get absolute jack.

Alchemy event wasn't that great at the time, its concept and execution were sound though the latest iteration was not fair on players in regards to drops rate for both the rewards and alchemic essence and most of the time it was just level 60 superior manastones which has not changed for the past years this event was on. It was outdated then in patch 5.0 and if it comes back I'm pretty sure the 100 level 60 manastones aren't gonna change. I just don't trust the return of the event. Severely nerfed drops, and lack of decent rewards.

Purple Reign shouldn't even be there, arguably the worst of the lot. Very difficult to acquire the 10 flags and often or not it gave bad rewards, or rewards that were not worth the effort. Those who invested Ncoin into this for the Boxing outfit skin and boxing motion and there were quite a number, ALL got trolled. Can't seem to find details of the event when it ran end of June 2016 but here's the 2014 version.

I voted for Kromede's Revenge for these reasons, too. The rewards and xp were definitely worth the time in the instance & finding groups. Hopefully we can get it again & try to get some provenance boxes :u

Doesn't matter what event we get. It'll be nerfed to the ground, like every time they repeat an event, it gets worse than before. Remember when everyone was asking for Alchemy hoping for omegas and temperings? All we got were tons and tons of blood marks.

Ohhhhh they finally did the survey, which means I need to log in and vote too! Thankies for sharing! I'd vote for the Kromede's Revenge too. You were able to run this on any of your alts too and it was the most enjoyable one because the rewards were really nice and help a lot of people to gain kinah, to gear up and to level. <3

I personally voted for Shugo Kingdom's Adventure.
Why?

  • Voting based on possible rewards is well... unreasonable. Ofcourse Kromede's had better rewards than the Shugo ones which are way older.
    Can't expect to be given tempers and Prov boxes in 4.8 right? + rewards change.
  • Timetable: we had the Kromede's event this february (and lasted to march). The shugo instances? Over a year ago. 
    Fall has always been the return of the Shugo Tomb, I'd like to see the tradition continue.
  • We will likely see Kromede's come back anyways, it's a new event (or well, reskinned shugo vault) and will likely be held on a yearly basis.
    The older version? Not as likely. For nostalgia purposes, I'd love to see an older event return over a new one that will either way.
     

I'd kindly would request NcSoft to update the price-list of the Shugo instances,
If they happen to win the vote - and make them on par with the Kromede's event.
That way, it's only a matter of 'which event you like better?' and not the 'I only want to be rich' argument.

I chose Alchemy, because Cyan already said we're getting Kumuki in August.  I don't like having multiple "Instance" events either at the same time or virtually back to back, as they tend to take up a LOT of my playtime because I have 3-4 accounts full of characters for them.

I voted for Kromede's Revenge. Unlike Shugo Vault, it was easy to S rank and unlike Shugo's Kingdom Adventure it didn't take ages to run. Also SFT is more fair than Shugo's Kingdom Adventure - the tags situation always sucked, because there always was this one person who was getting stuck with brass one. Not even gonna mention the dramas because someone forgot to change loot for the last boss or because someone decided to roll on an extra tag.
Also my luck with SFT was fairly decent, taken I got A LOT of stuff, unlike during Shugo's Kingdom. Sure, the rewards change, but it's not hard to compare rewards from an event in 4.8 to an event in 5.0+ - each event there are rewards considered as top tier one, mid tier, meh tier and why-does-this-game-hate-me tier.

But at the end of the day, no matter what event we get, it still means free stuff so hey, that's pretty good

We use to have a nice anniversary event. The exp buff was really great and we are on a game focused on leveling now. Even when the last year the lengt of the buff was greatly shortened, they increased the percentage making it like x6 or x9 exp ( I´m not sure, but it was a lot).

And as somebody said, not beacuse an event gave nice rewards in the past, it means they will make it in the same way. Maybe they realised that the rewards were really huge (think that the other events after kromede did not have the same quality of rewards and many of them turned more into a NCoin focus) Remember the snowballs or alchemy events. those were so different at the beggining.

If the plan is to have both things (the exp and drop buff with the cake and one of the list) then the situation changes a lot.

They alternate between different cakes each year. One year we get the candles to buff everyone, the other is you interact with the cake. This year is gonna be with the candles, so there will be attack and cast speed boost, 2k dp and exp and drop rate boost.
 

As for this entire thread, Smoldering Fire Temple instance gives xp which will actually benefit from the bonus exp boosts when this years anniversary comes. None of the other events will get boosted.

I do not know how it was at the very beginning cause I joined on some point in 3.X like 4 years ago or a little more. The usual was the cake with the candles and 3 different buffs (+300% exp - double drop rate - 2000 DP). on those times the exp buff was nice to level up alts doing beshmundir. but I used to like more the drop rate buff to go some instances and try to get some items that I wanted. And usually that lasted for 2 or 3 weeks

The last year the experience started to be really important and a way to get money so they changed the event to ony a couple of days and a lot of players complained (including miself).

So if now the plan is to take totally off the exp buff from the event I can imagine a lot of people being really mad. (and again including myself lol )

I really doubt they will remove the xp buff, NCsoft always makes anniversary a big deal and it would really be a bad PA move on their part. Hopefully the server side xp boost (not the cake buff) lasts more than 5 days.

Ye would be perfect as the merge will happen 2 days before anniversary, so it's gonna be a Post-Merge Anniversary Party!!!! 

As for me I voted for SFT also.

In less than 12 hours the survey will end so best do it on every account you have. I can't edit my Original Post but I want to point out some key dates.

September 20th Server Merge

September 22th Aion's 8th Anniversary

Kromede's Revenge gives the Smoldering Fire Temple which is a group event and the bosses in there give xp. As others have pointed out with the server merge you will meet people you haven't played with before and this group event is a good way to get to know one another. Anniversary will bring the cake xp buff which works like an amulet and there will be a server side xp multiplier which most likely would take it to 9x xp. The drops from this instance will help normalise the markets from the current servers now and will help establish a base line in trading.

So please put in Kromede's Revenge.

Looks like too bad lol, server merge won't happen till early October so whatever post-merge party we gonna get is gonna be outside the xp boosts of anniversary but nonetheless I still voted for Kromede's Revenge.

Just great another week of Secrets of the Ancients and the server merge is gonna be delayed I can't wait for SFT to come back, atleast that event came good rewards and it was worth the effort as oppose to bad exp or getting 5 5 minutes scrolls.

I voted alchemy because that way i can collect a key on 40 characters :D.

I voted it too cause yes, it used to give me rewards, and simple, just get keys in Pandemonium on every toon. Giving Grove would be the 2nd choice for me cause I could also get items on diff toons and give them to those who needed Blood Medals/Blood marks, and get some. Although, the other rewards were not all that good - composite manastones of lev 50 - too low.

But my favourite event Ice Hot wasn't in the list!!! I want scintillating cocktails!! We didn't receive them in 2016 and 2017, and toons that were created later than in Aug 2015 had no chance to get them at all!! :( Please let us get them whichever way!! Manduri Sour, Blue Atreia, Ribbit Sunrise, Brommeltini.
