    • up to now we flamed for a lot of things
      also a lot of people gave good feedback on what we think OUR Aion in Europe should/could be

      all we can do now it's wait the patch day and than start flaming again as like for the luna or all the other problems, GF think they know aion better than the players that are IG since ever.
      (not talking about the random forum heroes)

      i personally will not fight anymore, if the game i play since 2011 becomes unplayable I'll just find another one.

      to end this post a few things for our publisher:

      thanks for the custom kinah exchange rate, i thin this is nice but more than normal, we don't have the same economy and not at all the same inflation as KR

      please don't mess with the enchant/socketing rates; to low: people will quit, to high .... this will never happen ;)

      people need good compensation for the scrolls and something for all you take off or make useless after the update

      we need the update standard event like in the other regions to obtain some gold transformation potions even if they are temporary, also some legendary weapons and wings for new players and those who had no exchange for their gear

      find (quickly) a way to give us through IG means, even if it's hard to get, a constant income of ultimate enchant stones or this update will last 3 months max.

      after playing on both ru pts and official + our pts one thing is obvious: the 'NEW ' economy in Aion it's totally broken
      the game has been simplified to much, + to many things are non tradable and even not storable on the account warehouse (sure, we need to be schizophrenic people and dissociate our personality every time we switch to another character)
      quest give a very poor amount of kinahs
      this update has been advertised like the return of the farming but only 4-5 mats can be sold on broker and the scrap doesn't worth the effort

      you need to work FAAASSSTTTTTT on the kinah problem

      thanks for your time

      It looks more like they ripping us off then thinking about us players ,same thing with this Deavanion skill chest costs 200 gold bars! omg! if you buy one, stop buying this thing again with 200 Goldbars you can get the same skill again? they should not making this a random skill but a follow up skill that you not have allready!!! this chest drops for nothing in instances ,the price is way overpriced! it should be max 50Gold Bars Max even then i have my thoughts with this milking chest! what they want? Rip us more with this patch?
      Can someone please confirm this? @GaleasIf I have lets say 3 deavanion skills unlocked and buy a new book for 200 gold bars, can I really get duplicated skill (skill that I have already unlocked) ?
      Yes you can, as the patch is coming to us you have a big chance you get the same skill and you cant do nothing with it if you get the same, the more daevanion skills you have,the harder it gets, the more goldbars you need to find the lasts skill you need ,it could cost you thousands and thousands of Goldbars bevore you have copleted you Daevanion skills.

      For example when you have 4 skills and you need 1 more you think you have a chance 1 to 4 thats crazy allready, but thats not all, the skill you need could be not so often in a box as you think! thats why i ask GF to make it a follow up skill and not random.

      And really 200GB for this? 50 Goldbars for this is a better price for this chests that drops for free in instances

      The more i play this Pts Server 6.0 6.2 patch the more i dislike this patch its way over hypet by GF i am putting big big Question marks behind this patch

      Allmost all we played for in this game is taken from us! we get some back like goldbars but what you can buy with them is crap and way ro expencive 200gb fo a chest 80 gb for a simple skinn etc etc it feels we getting ripped off.

    • Guys is there any official topic by Gameforge itself where they select players issue report about game itself & what they are gonna do about it ?

      for exemple :
      • Lack of in game earnable Xform contract by playing
      • Lack of Ultimate stone earnable by drop ? (not even in the droptable)
      • No optional stats reroll for kinah ?


      etc...

      I can asure you that those ''promoted youtubers'' are not paid at all, think about it, its gameforge, you really think they will pay ? they just giveaway few shirts and crap to get free promotion, that what is about this thing, also sywo was not contacted because the team that where looking for youtubers had never actualy search for aion videos on youtube except to find those guys for theyr program.
      Your statement is actually completely wrong. We reviewed hundreds of videos and youtube channels. And we considered everyone. Then we had to make decision based on several factors. We didn't go necessarily for the biggest youtubers as this is not the goal here.

    • Love the new shugo vending machine. Solves so many issues and reflects our feedback.

      Once a month we will get one ancient and one legendary enchantment stones and a box with manastones, of course has to be pve or pvp, we cant have both, its too much ...BUT if we save our gold for 4 months, we can have a mount. Thats game breaking and so generous ...Thank you, I have a reason to log in every day now. Keep the good job

      nothing changed from the old vending machine, crap is overpriced and it takes way too long to get
    • My feedback on PTS after few days of gameplay:

      Pros:
      1. Fast leveling

      2. Easy campaign and missions, even if you aren't familiar with aion.



      Cons:
      1. Slow motion expierience even with an ancient contract (due to the lack of speed stats in campaign gear).

      2. The transition from scrolling to transformation contracts and potions is ridiculous. Really... paying for that terrible RNG to get some normal speed is idiotic. I can already foresee massive quits if this won't change.

      3. Using Luna to ress up when dead as many times you want? Come on people, really? :D

      4. Beluslan / Heiron are still so ugly maps. Really, gave the impression that devs don't even tried to rework them. Not even close to the level that poeta / ishalgen got a few patches ago.

      5. Lakrum: huge and ugly map too. Except 2 areas maybe (north east, the one with the purple background, and south west, the one with huge flowers) rest looked like a jungle covered with mountains with minimum light, which is not pleasant at all, at least on my eyes. I dunno... engine is super old to keep trying to create fake trees with it. Signia and vengar is a perfect example of how to create beutiful maps with low ress textures.

      6. Again it looks like it's gonna be "pay to EVERYTHING".... :atired:

      I have to say: Heiron is sooooooooooo beautiful now :love: They really made a good job, :slove:
      But I am disappointed about Beluslan. It's the same ugly map as before, they only changed 1 Base (Red Mane Cave) so that it doesnt match the rest of the map now. Great. :dislike:

      I got to agree with everything you just said, NCsoft didn't even bother working on New unique mob / skins this patch - just another lazy work for a major expansion of the game. New map is a reskin of old locations and all the Mobs are reskins from another MMO that NCsoft owns.
      I would say this is last breath for Aion, there was even leaked some info about Aion2 (A2 Project) a couple of months ago if i remember correct.
      sauce:



      massivelyop.com/2018/07/31/ncs…d-next-generation-mmorpg/
      G-Star 2018 is 2 months away and I can bet the new Aion project will be announced.

      PS: MXM was first and now Wildstar is shutting down..Is Aion next on the list?

    • Hi,
      I liked to play Aion PvE and hanging out in the good old lowlevel areas.
      Now I played the beta. I am searching for an new mmorpg to play.
      All the areas I liked are gone or cut in half.
      This game feel like a linear walking simulator with outdated fighting mechanics tagged on to it.
      The leveling is to fast for an rpg.

      I miss the areas:
      -Half of Sanctum
      -Half of Pandämonium
      -Altgard
      -Eltnen
      -Morheim
      -Verteron
      -most of Ishalgen and Poeta

      I miss collecting, making side quests and crafting.

      This update feels like an incomplete alpha of a completly different game.

      Please don't say that sarcastically, they might not understand its sarcasm and feel like someone actually liked the rates...

      for GF --->
      (seriously... 1x legendary stone per 1 month? xD) Im not even mentioning the ancient because that one is GARBAGE enchantment rate even for ancient gear which we all learned easily in PTS/KOR~~. How you expect us to get all the Legendary stones needed? THINK about it, just to make the PVP set from Ancient to Ultimate, thats 675 stones IIIIIIFFFFF they all worked with 100% succeed, WHICH they wont, not even nearly... SO (And i'm being VERY generous here) If you only failed 5 stones per item (Reality is you fail 10-15 past +10 for sure per item) you would still need 3375 Legendary PVP enchantment stones, not to mention you probably want to enchant PVE gear as well (prometon / crafted ultimate) which will eat another 500-1000 stones. Like really, getting 1-2 in 1 way or another.. Its not even nearly enough for the need that is there. Sure, i like grinding, i like that gear is bit hard to get and you can get a feeling of accomplishment once you done.... But years? (Especially since others can just pay their way most of the process) Nah.. You should be able to get endgame in 4-8months... Not 1-2years like with the Enchantment stone (The only ones that matter Legendary/ultimate) drop rate allows you. NOT to even mention the outright TERRIBLE grind you would need to get any valid transformation (Lets face it, anything under legendary is garbage and slower than we have now in 5.8 and all the years before that). Please.. Most of us love this game, but not enough to stick around when you feel much slower in speed/atk/cast and cannot compete at all versus huge spenders. The game will not stay alive with just the biggest payers around, they will also get bored when there is nothing left but 50-150players in server/faction. While i understand this is business, and that you need to sell something... The MOST game breaking and advantage giving things SHOULD NOT be that something. Im actually 100% fine with permanently STUCK with bad enchantment rate and drop... and it being murderously hard to go past ancient in transform... BUT ONLY, if it was the same for everyone.
    • I find it kinda funny that we are getting "happy" with things we shouldn't but we already know that's the max we can get because when there is this company behind the game .I get it that its "free to play" (not rly) but seriously , gameforge has a chance here to earn some respect because all these years in all of their games they are getting the opposite feedback instead of gratitude (which happens in many other f2p titles , wont mention here)

      The truth for this whole thing / update to be a remarkable thing , something that MIGHT revive this old game will be the total removal of scrolls , potions AND enchantment stones from item shop. Keep skins , mounts , boosts , reset scrolls , gold pack there for convienience .Why we cant have seasonal themes , skins that are limited time only and make it a huge thing just like other f2p do to earn their revenue? THIS would be a really good update and change of heart from the company. I've played tons of mmorpg in all payment models and i know one thing , the price don't matter. If there's p2w, it will happen.Even if scrolls were 5 euros each , there would be people buying them.Even if there are 2-3 that will get these Ultimate transformations , people will lose any motivation they have if they see this happening so easily when in their side they are trying their best with ingame means and eventually stop playing just like they did in past. Stop treating game like a casino.So yeah make us farm like slaves in a game that is suppose to give us entertainment for a lil bit of something just for us to not complain that there aren't any means of acquiring stuff other than item shop.That is making us happy ,yes.

      Im gonna be realistic and i know that this thing will never happen , they are gonna milk as much out of the game as they can till its dead like they do all these years. The only thing that is remarkable just like i mentioned before is that @Galeas is actually trying , despite having limitations from gameforge ,i am seeing that he tries unlike other people that were previously in his position.Bad thing the people above him that are putting these "limitation" are clueless about the game .The whole genre of mmorpg in the latest years is actually dying from these kinds of decisions.
