    • AION under Gameforge, what could be better (shop + events)

      We recently got a wheel of fortune and a transformation box (19NC) added,
      Now together with the newfound kinah issues that the EU community currently is ''suffering'' under,I have a feeling Gameforge could do way better at making money.

      They're both quite pathetic attempts,in it's place a small outfix RNGbox with 1 quaranteed outfit + token you can exchange for other outfits would be way better income wise (see Blade & Soul)

      More design contests with in-game rewards (besides getting your design actually made) is a good idea as well, I am pretty positive I have seen GF-only design contests in the past, so whether NC initiates it or not should not be an issue.
      With more I mean there's a possibility for class-specific and armour specific contests (see FFXIV's melee DPS,tanks,healers,aiming etc)

      I just find the shop to be lacking after my long break, it's so empty and hollow... with all the outrage some art contests may help to bring atleast a part of the community closer together rather than them not wanting to bother with the community and the game.

      So yeah, I believe Gameforge would be doing better if there was more focus on cosmetics (mounts, and where are all our old motions!!) and events that actually make people happy

      Cheers! :slove:
    • If the game was fair and the shop has only cosmetic items i and most of the players will cash shop skins and mounts like without problems ppl spent more money when they are satisfied...
      But they work for another kind of ppl the gambling addicted players badly these ones ruined the gaming scene...
    • Well I know for sure if there are cool skins, cool mounts, cool housing stuff, cool comsetics and so forth, they would make more money from that, than the RNG stuff.

      Thas why they made a silly misake with this transformation stuff I think.


      Because: I have no interest buying a skin anymore. Earlier I had, but now I have 0% interest. Like nothing. Because I wont be able to see it anyway.


      They should focus more on items that are not RNG.

    • Not to mention Spinning the wheel is such a good rolemodel for young people.

      "Here, come and gamble you can win a nice reward".

      Or adults that can get a gambling addiction.


      Is Aion shop a Casino? Considering that normally those places got K18-20 age restriction and we have underaged players in this game.

    • Gameforge doesnt need or want our feedback. Everything they do has a reason. The reason is fast money. While i think thats legit it angers me that they have community managers here telling us otherwise. I see people being delusional like "gf really needs experienced players to guide and help them". What the hell are the emissaries for? They were all in close contact to galeas and god knows who. They might not all be best players but they are surely experienced playing the game for many years. Stop looking for reasons or excuses here. And galeas and celes can take their forum posts elsewhere saying our feedback has been heard and they are analysing the situation. I played the whole content update 5.x and all they ever did was delay things and after it almost didnt matter anymore, threw bread crumbs at the players so they still need to use the shop and the income doesnt decrease. Want me to believe you @Galeas? Well let actions speak for the first time in years. And i dont mean something ridiculous like the shugo vending machine. All the threads here and all the emissary videos just to get this shop update and the kinah nerf in your face. Thats the only message that matters. Everything you said before is worthless. Actions speak louder than words do.

      That's an awesome idea dude , i will draw a line in my shugo painting each time i cast a skill with my sorc or waiting for the arena to end after i get stomped by a freaking KAISINEL transform. I hope my painting will win a 30 day skin :)

      I find the shop to be disgusting . No hollow or empty , just disgusting .
      Gameforge 2012 before the takeover : We will have item shop for cosmetics stuff and boosts only
      Gameforge today : 50% of the item shop is hard p2w and the other 50% such as mounts/skins/weapon skins are over priced af so there is no reason for a player to waste him money on cosmetics.

      They dont care if they game is p2w , they dont care if there is unbalance between wallet warriors vs hardcore player vs casual / free players. They care to sell as much as they can .

      I dont believe in gameforge. I trully believe that they dont believe in themselfs either lol , they know how deep they are and they are trying to see how deep they can go. I really tried to understand them but they are self-dectructive. I have never got such an amount of disrespect from a company to their playerbase and i have played a lot of other mmorpg. Sorry for my pesimistic opinion but thats the reality i have lived throught these years.
    • Yh I feel u @Hizamaruu

      There's just so much stuff missing atm and then stuff got wiped from the game too. What exactly are we, returning players,returning to. I feel quite tempted to go NA instead but is it worth the extra ping

      I'm gonna give the entire thing a try until people's gold packs run out since I came here with my FFXIV savage team. Leaving some ideas behind in the process might not be bad, whether they use it or not. We as community have tried.

      I still feel that the community has bittered extremely over time, there's so much negativity around to the point where I myself am salty playing my main class as well.despite being quite rusty I just fix it by playing a completely different class and try to learn that in pvp... Should amuse me for a few days

      Basically everything's so hopeless this thread turned salty as well lol. Mayhaps we get some fries in a few days /wink
    • I played FF14 for years too and even for a p2p game, they put a "kiosk" to obtain cosmetic stuff. Which is disgusting in a way too but anyway.

      Many play this game cause they like/love Aion for what it is. The gameplay/chain skill system, the graphic, the nostalgia, the memories and friends they made.
      It really doesnt matter who the publisher is, unless they ruin the game without thinking how "fixes" could break the game (e.g. kaisinel potion % to high, kinah nerf)

      We had many events past year, with a lot of skins to get (yes some of them were behind rng), but what I can say about the cash shop is, there is a thread you can post what you would like to have it in the next "weekly shop update". I'll just post it here:
