Small question for Gameforge

    • Hello Shinsuke,

      First of all, I'd like to welcome you to the board!

      About your small question. Due to Aion EU being a free to play game, there are items that have to be sold to make sure that the company can pay for the server upkeep, their employees, fixed costs, variable costs and so on. Since many people want to enjoy the benefits of having the gold pack, a lot of those get sold and they help continue the viability of Aion as a product. :)

      If it is not possible for you to buy these with real money, you are in luck! They are tradable so you can buy them with ingame currency as well.
    • The limitation for LFG was removed quite a while ago.
      While you cannot buy anything else, you can buy the gold pack for kinah on broker, though not on player stores
      For balic atreia

      Brigade General Sita of the 40th Army: What do you think about that? Isn't it exciting?
    • Isn't NCsoft Aion completely free without any limitations? I understand that a company is a business but take MOBAs bussiness model as an example, their important features are completely free but they offer cool things for money and get lots of money.

      Important MMORPG features that should be avaiable to everyone are the broker, max character limit and trading.

      GP players could have XP and Gold boosts, better daily rewards, a "premium" chat, etc...


      And skins/mounts should make enough money.

      They could hardly sustain with the current playerbase.
      That is mostly because they took some wrong turns way back.
      Like server merges delayed to eternity, widening the gap between whales and free users, shop exclusive events, and so on.

      They could start going in that direction, and change slowly.
      But knowing GF, it will never happen.
      They milk the game as long as they can, then just let it go.
    • But if they keep doing this the game could die, the playerbase is low because GP, seeing only premium features when you start can make someone think it's P2W, and maybe milking the game makes a decent amount of money for the next year until everyone gets tired of GP and the shop but if they do it the right way in can be a small amountof benefits forever. They didn't even make the game and they try to win more money than who made it.
    • If they want to compete with NA Aion, remove goldpack. Make Aion EU P2W and so that only western Europe and Northern Europe can afford P2W store.

      NA is the complete opposite of P2W they only offer subscription which is not P2W, or the goldpack we have called value pack, but it's not needed at all. Thete store only offers skins,pets, mounts and convince items.

      Make Aion EU full p2w, with the best armor and weapons store exclusive for €100.+ a piece and see players moving here. Remove those armors from the game make them store exclusive. Also if you pay more the store bought items are enchanted to +109 and full socket with stones of choice.
