Pharoahra-DN Posted December 2, 2020 Share Posted December 2, 2020 @Loki @Kibbelz @Hime Let's be real here: This patch was solely designed for the Korean players play style and to keep players online longer because their gaming setup is designed a bit differently than ours. Yes, this is a Korean originated MMO. However, when you bring it overseas it requires adjustments just as Gameforge has done for their version of Aion. 7.7 is very unfriendly to the majority of NA players who don't have the time or money to be ultra-hardcore 24/7 grinders. People just want to play the game and enjoy it, however in its current state it feels like a second job on some days. It should never feel like a job playing Aion. I love the heck out of Aion still, and enjoy gearing up for hardcore bosses and pvp'ing against people who don't cheat. Right now there are a lot of issues that need to be addressed, unfortunately. Currently, the game is super unfriendly to new players aside from the change to exp mark gear which was slightly helpful. The Bitterthorn gear grind is stupid in many ways and gives advantage to fully geared players, zergs, cheaters, and hardcore grinders who don't sleep or work. The Faction imbalance is kind of ridiculous right now and if you're an Asmodian, World Bosses are miles out of reach. The Cheating has gotten out of hand. This needs to be addressed more than anything because all these 3rd party programs people are using to enhance their combat is getting out of hand and for me personally has killed most PvP and is a big turn-off for most players I know. There are many other problems such as the terrible lack of ability to get ultimate xforms without extreme luck or lots of money as well as all the other bugs and missing lack of quality of life features. I understand this game is part of a business and has to make money each month, but reason needs to come into play here and you have to start meeting the players halfway otherwise players will keep quitting this game each month because it is becoming less and and less accessible to those without tons of spare dollars. I personally know quite a few people who quit when 7.7 started because of how inaccessible it is to most players. These are my observations. Others may have a different opinion but I've been watching this game's changes for a long time now and I'd say my notes are fairly spot on as to the problem areas. Thanks for Reading.
