Video on Aion is well worth the watch, It was funny AF and so true.

Is this another one of those LazyPeon videos where the reviewer never makes it to max level and judges the game because he doesn't know how to use a quest tracker or open a mini map?

Pretty much yes.

He didn't even know how to change the appearance of his char, he simply went back and forth to get a new random face apparently nobody told him the basics so he missed one of the best points of Aion which is the character customization. And it is not like other mmorpgs aren't the same setup when you make a char, he should have knows that there are options right in front of his face if he bothered to look  at his screen (unless he never tried a single mmorpg in his life before).

The next biggest stupidity he did was that he chose an AT and he didn't get a mech key at level 10 for some reason, so he kept killing mobs with his level 10 pistols and 2 skills until he was level 21.

He totally missed a lot of points and obviously he didn't even post the things Aion went bad for and that is because he never played Aion before to know what he is talking about.

He made a few good points like the fact the story line is absolutely irrelevant to the game and that we get a few cinematics and some information at the beginning that will have 0 impact on the game later.

Of course this is an mmorpg, not an rpg like Diablo where the story is streamlined and the game reaches its final boss and ends but the story line is many times just junk fillers.

The comment section was much more difficult to read, some people that quit at 2016 or even earlier wrote their outdated story of the game.

Regardless, it was kinda funny to see that video I won't lie.

Doesnt change the fact aion is the one of the worst MMO to play atm and that will not change.

Yes, for all the different reasons that the video suggested. It is not holding well.

Thankfully 7.x is gone and 8.x looks so far ten times better than 7.x

Every reason he was talking about was spot on from a new player perspective, You are to busy looking at your end game experience going X or Y is boring but if no one wants to even make it to end game because of all the BS that is in the game prior to it then why even talk about end game as being the problem?

SImple you do not, There is no point talking about the garbage end game event driven crap that is Aion you talk about the fact that they are not getting people past level 20 because the game has a bad MMO early game experience. All this before you get to the meat and potato's of the game

I'm not sure how 8.x is better yet. I've been trying to play it out, but to be bombarded by so many things to upgrade becomes obnoxious at best.

You get the new patch naussea, I even got it when we first got 6.x and I thought Lakrum was unfriendly. But since 6.x Lakrum is still my favorite map and that is weird for a shared map.

First impressions are always hard and it seems we go towards more freedom, we are getting back the wrapping system where we can sell on broker extra items we do not need and you can even re-wrap the item later to sell once you are upgrading to better gear. That is another step to undo the new system after 6.x. They even bring back the skills at end level, we had the Archdaeva system in 5.8 now they bring something similar.

7.x was literally the worst patch, not only they implemented Vandal which stupid-OP for months but they also implemented all the additional slots and items, we sure still have them now but they are no longer niche items like they used to be. And of course at 7.x pvp instances became obsolete and as for pve, the doable instances were useless and the important ones were impossible to do.

Aion was like this from start and it was pretty alive. Aion Classic is a more basic version of retail and it was so alilve at launch, it failed only because of the model of p2w and free-to-play which is ehat killed retail as well.

The guy simply tried a ton of mmos apparently and he got bored of the same generic formula. He probably doesn't evn like mmorpg games, he would be better off trying single player game like Diablo, Witcher etc, they all have a linear story and have better graphics.

Aion didn't suck because you had to kill 100 mobs, we did it for years and the game was alive. He didn't even spend 2 hours trying to perfect his character, he was ready to hate the game beforehand.

~~
The reason Aion died is because of the end game became a p2w race and iti s impossible for normal players to enjoy the game. And also the fact they removed the RPG from the MMORPG, there is no role playing anymore, no crafting, no housing, no morphing, no gathering, just spam the same instance 1000 times until your RNG smiles at you and you get that final peice.
