Bittena-DN Posted May 31, 2019 Share Posted May 31, 2019 So unless your buried deep under a rock.. a very large rock you have been at least hearing about reactions to Blizzards WOW classic. Post cata I ended up switching over to AION because WOW ceased to be a challenge. AIon gave me the challenge back and it was every bit as difficult as original WOW (if not a little bit more so!). I remember that period.. getting to level 20 was "OMG I'M LEVEL 20!" and every milestone on the way to the level cap mattered. Mobs were tough, grouping was necessary and world PvP was everywhere. You could get ganked at as moments notice (that part was a bit over the top and did get nerfed down somewhat. A minority of the player base was good with it, most did not like it because there was no fair chance to even get away in most cases much less win. It was a problem.) Todays Aion is a cake walk all the way to level 6o with gear being a gimmie and and it's all about the end game.. In retrospect this is not a very fun system 'cept for those that all ready got the goodies. Before the gimmies started happening though there was a period, a golden age of AION where I mr. crap at the key board managed to work up to general rank doing PvP in a legion where we picked every go getter we had heard that had been rejected by the greater community and turn them into a PvP force to be reckoned with under Evilparaguns.. (You may recall him with a fond hate.. We all had gotten so much crap for so long we just didn't care anymore.. and went out in righteous fury and made a place for our selves). So NCSoft... I know it's been said before and suggested as some sort of AIon classic (certainly whats running on private servers world wide should be a CLUE). So maybe there finally is a place for an official AIon classic and a chance to take the lessons learned over the last several years and make a better Aion.. and if ya gotta retcon a few things.. do it. To the regular lurkers go ahead and comment all you want. I don't follow the forums any more and I wont be getting any notification on replies to the thread. I don't play Aion any more because there's no challenge. There little feeling of accomplishment on the way to the level cap and the current system in spite of the gear leaves player woefully unprepared for the end game because they never have to actually test their skills on the way up the levels so they get to cap and have no clue what to do. I recall back in the day players literally whining about "How grindy AIon was" Yet the reality is it was never anywhere as grindy as WOW was. You never had to spend 20 minutes to an hour getting from A to B for a quest or to discover a new zone. I loved playing AION back in the day. it was visually stunning, fun story lines, epic struggles everywhere. Today... not so much. And it seems other then a hard core of players there just not that many of you playing. Actuall new players are far and few between. Is the game dead? No. Your still playing so the game is not dead. But I remember there being many many servers for the NA region and now you have.... 3. Maybe, just maybe looking to AIons past may save its future.
