Glory Points Reset & Seasons

Recommended Posts

Cyan   

Greetings Daevas,

With the current season for Glory Points ending we wanted to provide some information on an additional change. On April 24,  after the conclusion of the season, we’ll be doing a full reset of the ranks – every player on every server will have their GP reset back to zero. This will happen during maintenance following each new season moving forward. Ranks will work the same as they always have, albeit with lowered GP requirements to rank up. There will also be additional ways to earn GP from battlefield instances and new quests.

With each GP reset, you’ll also receive Gold Ingots based on how much GP you have at the time of the reset.  How much you earn will be based on the following:

  • Every 500 GP (rounded up to the nearest 500) will grant 1 Gold Ingot. For example, if you end the season with 3,205 GP you will receive 7 Gold Ingots.

 

If you have any questions regarding this change, put them below and we will work to get them answered!

Thank you.

2- there will be new things to buy with Gold Ingots?

3- there will be compensation for the current GP loss ?

  1. Yes
  2. Possibly, yes (feedback and suggestions are forwarded to the devs so if you would like to see anything please let us know)
  3. What do you mean by current GP loss? If you mean for the GP people currently have, then yes, they will be receiving the equivalent Gold Ingots based on their current GP on the 24.

I AM DREAMING. I have been asking for this for so long... FINALLY! The GP should reset every time there is a change in GP acquisition. You cannot carry GP from previous ways to new ways. no more locked rankings.

Aion starts getting back to competition!

i know this glory point reset was coming since 6.x started , since the ranks weren't moving at all and only way to rank up was if someone was inactive but the execution of the gp reset is just a joke. to be giving us the literally the worst item as compensation for gp we worked years on,all those sieges all those pvp instances all those ap->gp grind, the ebs. all of it to be compensated with gold ingot is just dumb. let me give you an example. currently there is almost noone buying gold ingots neither daily nor even weekly or rather ever because they are useless. rewards inside gold ingot shop that was useful became useless even back in 6.2 cause it took month of everyday buys and almost 230mil for single book. now its even less of use because of the skill book craft recipe which is 10000 times better than buying ingots. even if you guys added legend xforms to the shop temporarily like on ru and eu it would still be useless as most people wouldnt be able to get that many ingots in the limited amount of time to purchase those items., please rethink gold ingot compensation , hell even kinah woulda been better than that useless currency.give me 100 broken balls ill take that over gold ingots cmon just make compensation something usefull, dont make our years of grind go to waste like that.

Maybe it is a 1-time quest you can do in the instances, who knows. If the pvp instances give GP then yes this will turn into a p2w battle which will boost the game's survivability cause they need the money. BUT anything is better than the current situation. An afker being in the highest ranks was the biggest roblem of this game since the ranking system implementation.

1. What are those battlefield instances? Is it just Arenas that give gp? Cause if its dredge/id etc then like others say people can just spam luna reset and get gp that way. And you can still get inactive people for siege with xforms. They wouldn't even have to make it to every single siege.

2. With the new rankings of gp will there be rewards for be ultimate/legendary/ancient pvp enchant stones like they were for arena previously?

I don't mind gold ingots as long as you add useful things in that shop.

How are the GP you earn from instances going to be gained?  Is it going to be a quest, or are you going to get it directly from the instance?

Please make them quests that have a limited turn in number (like 2 per day), that way people can't abuse reset?

Lets hope ti si liek this, but even like this people who will no reset might not win that instance hence lose the quest rewards, so people who will reset will get the rewards.

But hey, aren't prestige users already gaining +50% GP in sieges and other rewards? This is a p2w game, a free to play model. The company needs the money.

I think the sieges and arenas should be giving the most GP to make it fair.

@ Cyan have two important questions:

 1- Can we have Legendary Transformation Contract on Gold Sand Trader?

 2- The people that have Prestige Pass are really, REALLY sad about weekly rewards, cant we have something better? OBS: In EU, they receive 1x Ancient Transformation Contract every 7 days, and also can receive a bunch of Gold Ingots.

...well this is a little irrelevant to the topic though and forums do not work like this. you could have made a suggestion post in the suggestion section. We all want to get the real Aion that everyone else got, but our publishers decided we should have 1/10th of what Aion actually is because they thought it would bring them money or something. On your point, we would all love to get a little more rewards like others get in EU/RU/Korea.

I am fine with the GP reset but, there will probably be random Governors, Commanders every week most likely some people who don't know how to Siege will end up with Governor or Commander just by resetting the instances. P2W people will fill the ranks and the actual people that siege and know how to siege will be fewer on the ranks. More than helping this will end up making siege less appealing IMHO.

Since you guys are working on that hard reset...

How about if you ban all the hackers and all the people that buys kinah... I mean if you are paying attention to all the "feedback" you should get rid of those players too

We still do not know how the GP from pvp instances will be and how much will it be. Why do you assume people who do not know how to siege will be on top ranks? Are top ranks innocent people who do not p2w as well?

The problem here is that we had locked list of ranking with afk people sitting there, while the Gp they got wasn't even from pvp, but mostly from pve things in the past or AP->GP conversion days, or even worse with the coalition afk-system where everyone could get same rewards whether they tried or not.

Really? Gold ingots for years earning a top ten spot? Very sad.

You should know by now that NCsoft has a hard time coming up with "good ideas"

@Cyan will siege still reward people who are solo/grouped with more GP than it rewards alliances and leagues? Because that system discourages teamwork and will give leadership ranks to people who do not lead. 

Also Aion Russia gave GP from instances which could be Luna reset but they realised this put a price on ranks and so they rolled back the change. Does NA have any particular problem with or deterrent for buying GP via Luna reset?
