I have a stupid question but I keep reading about how people "buy" their ranks. Can someone explain this situation. I just came back from a LONG Aion break. >.<

Certain pvp instances now give GP, and they can be reset with the luna currency, which can't be gifted or sold on the broker, so people with money can now drop the big moneys on the game and feed themselves top rank every month while normal players, or even hardcores with no RL money, can't compete.

There are no reset scrolls, so you can't buy/sell those for the hardcore/casual players with kinah.

That's pretty much the way I see it, lol.

And now there's a bug where you can't get AP from any source if you're officer rank (I think?), which means you can't get GP from sieges or AP to upgrade anything, so RIP again.

...of course you didn't know, you do not play in our server and you were so happy just to "point out" that you wanted to blast me with a p2w accusation, let me tell you I play from Greece, aka poor, and I cannot afford to pay 1~2 $ for potential of 10 or 25 GP for IB resets! I wont' do it

You need to relax and not take this game seriously cause it looks like you do and if I was wrong then woops? No one is perfect but question is though aren't you the same Sorc who hacked in Cruci spire to get 2:58 during Season and then told people 'it's a glitch?'

Thankies so much for explaining this to me! I was aware of the current bug related to the rank, but buying resets with luna sounds ridiculous to me. Luna has always been a cash cow! Another good example is that Luna buff you can get and the item res... *smh*

I understand what you mean, but I do not think it is exactly the same. Before we could buy the reset scrolls and use them or sell them in the broker, making all those who could not buy the scrolls with real money, buy them with kinah, and thus making the reset to EB accessible to everybody as long as we could afford them with kinha.

but now it is not like that, there are no scrolls that we can buy in the broker and that resets IB and ID, only those that have prestige pack and/or buy luna are those who can go more than once, giving them a much more uneven advantage that before to those who can not buy them.

Well, you can buy ncode with kinah, but I know it's more complicated. Also you could buy a instance boost pack, which could pretty much double your entries, now you have to buy prestige. They ssaid they would make a tradeable version of prestige, but no word about that so far. It's like they don't even want to make money.

So after going over these forum posts here and reading probably same things again and again, what I am probably going to say is most likely beating a dead horse here.

Point 1: agreed GP reset has been long time needed the gp gap was way too huge for new players or anyone who wanted to work for rank. And we got decent amount of gold ingot too but this... all these ingots and you choose to not update the store

Point 2: reading a few posts we can all see the whole debate about buying rank. given how hard it is to make kinah without huge amount of time and effort buying Ncoin codes for luna can be really hard for a lot of players and the fact that these instance can only be luna reset is absolutely stupid... not to mention the increase in luna after multiple runs.

Using the term buying is not an adequate description. Buying could be pretty much how it was in the EB online era, but with ranks resets, it's just renting, you gonna have to pay every month.

Point 3:  not sure if anyone mentioned this yet but not only are people basically buying rank every month there also buying basically ultimate pvp enchantment stones and kinah. whats the difference between buying resets back to back going for rank 1-10 and just plain putting Ultimate pvp enchantment stones on BCM... it really isn't hard to win IB or IDL. I am far more concerned that people can just buy there way up in the glory point competition than rank because for years people have always been buying rank.

Point 4: I think they should just reset GP yearly instead of monthly or maybe after each major update because having P2W ranks at a rate where luna isn't easily accessibly isn't good either for the server sieges etc. just stick with what was in the original patch notes "Only glory points obtained during the season will count." And REMOVE GP from those 2 instances or make them daily quests or something.

Maybe, they have been buying rank for years but this time is different because theres a competition rank. I mean, if you could buy arena entries, the competition rank in arena WOULD MAKE NO SENSE at all because the ones winning would always be the ones who buy more entries.

That's why GP from those instances being unlimited like that it not only bad, it's plain and simple unacceptable, unless they remove this competition thing. Even if we could buy reset scrolls like back in the day, the competition ranking would still make no sense. So it's simple, either they remove completely the GP from those instances, or they remove the competition seasons. Both cannot work together.
