Add me to the list of not resubing cancled reason, not gonna pay to get ganked, can't get a group because of all the gold spaming, when seiging a fortress you get disconnected and ported into enemy camp. This was enough i voted with my wallet.

While Executive Producer Lance Stites took time to address some of the most prominent issues raised in the Aion community last week, we want to specifically address another issue that is a top priority for the team here at NCsoft: in-game real money trading (RMT) advertisement, sometimes referred to as “gold spamming.” These activities are something we’re actively combating right now. They are also something you can help us with, and something that we are committed to addressing continually in the future.

 

We currently have Game Masters monitoring all our servers. They track chat channels closely and have been banning thousands of spammers every day. This form of active monitoring is a part of a much larger network of tools and sensors that we’re currently utilizing to help create a better game experience for the Aion community across the board.

 

If you’re experiencing chat spam, there is a way for you to address this immediately on your own and help us create a better gameplay experience for everyone. You can use the Block User feature. All you need to do is to right-click on a user’s name and choose to block that user. While this doesn’t eliminate the problem, it is one small step you can actively make to improve your game experience. Using Block User also helps us identify spammers much more quickly.

 

We are considering a number of methods to address this chat spam that have been implemented in previous games, as well exploring new technologies and what they may have to offer to improve your game experience. One upcoming feature for Aion will be an improved chat filter to help reduce the overall chat spam. This filter, along with new tracking and monitoring methods, is the first of many steps that we’ll be taking to help resolve the issue of gold spamming.

 

We appreciate all the feedback and ideas you have been giving us so far. We will continue to scour the communities out there for other ideas as we go. We absolutely recognize how important this is to you and a good game experience in Aion, and we reiterate that we are currently addressing it. Thank you for your patience and for all of your input.

the game has potential but i'll only be renewing if they fix the horrible spam issues, botting, etc. seems like they are working on it.

We did by the way, conduct our own poll here in this thread, and so far with over 280 votes we're at 57% yes 37% no. I think that is definitely worth noting.

So once you get a character to max level what are you going to do?  They never bothered to put much of an end game into it?

Hope you like making multiple characters because that is about all you will be doing.

A poll conducted at AionSource has received over 1,000 votes and reveals some pretty telling statistics about how the population is feeling about Aion as the game nears its third week mark. The poll asks players if they will be renewing their subscriptions after the first free month, and as of this writing roughly 59% of North American players who answered the poll said yes, while only 9% say they will cancel.

The poll results can be viewed here.

So, how are you feeling about Aion at this point? Have you decided whether or not you will be renewing your subscription after your free month is up?  I'm also trying something new, and have added our own poll to the comments section of this story. So vote and let us know your thoughts!

 

ok here are my 5 cents:

the poll on aionsource is close to meaningless because it is an aion related fansite. the participants in the poll have not been selected randomly amongst all aion players.

I won't be resubbing :)

Getting tired of the same competitive race towards the end-game that seems to have taken over every single platform these days... I play to relax, not to have a job in my spare time, another 'must-do' thing, and so far, none of the new games are capable of delivering... Aion being the latest of many :)

 In my opinion 1000 votes aren't realistic for an MMORPG statistic.

 

^ also a very good point!

 

Actually it depends on their sampling methods. Often political polls that only sample a few thousands can be accurate (up to a few percentage points) in predicting election results where millions (or more) vote are cast.

Statistics is a wonderful thing if you know how to do it correctly.

I understand that concept, I've taken statistics before. The only sampling method in this poll was on  a website dedicated to the game however. Most people who don't like the game won't be hanging around on the website.

Well... all other things aside, the poll in the OP shows similar numbers.

If they mail their subscribers to tell them the poll is up, you may rest assured the unsatisfied customers will be sure to vote. If there's one thing gamers are good at, it's to air their dis-satisfaction.

How is your own usless poll worth noting like aionsources wothless poll, when less than 1000 people vote out of a supposedly 500k+?   lol  people on the internet can just be retards and just keep voting with multiple accounts etc.  The pools on that site and this are toally usless when seeing any corelation to any games popularity or retention rate.  Infact i may go onto their site right now just to even more screw up their poll.

Considering the amount of negative threads on these forums, the retention rate of almost 60% is astonishingly large.

Also, as far as statistics goes, you don't need to sample half the population to get some meaningful results. Besides, this particular sample draws from mmorpg.com forum goes alone, that are interested in staying, played the game and didn't like it and never played the game but casted a negative vote regardless. If anything, it is probably skewed towards the negative side.

It s too easy to mes with the poll. I m willing to bet many said yes to re subbing more then 2-3 times. I can say I never answered it as a no because I cancelled before I even saw this poll. I could create many accounts on here and do so but I won t. Polls like this are meaningless. I ll go by the people I know and some stores in town here, who are all saying a big decline in sales, literally next to nothing, and most I know will not resub.

Your town stores are as indicative as this poll.

Aion drop from the first place to 8th on steam is another story entirely.

As has been mentioned previously biasing a poll is easy enough to do by restricting your sample pool. But this also why threads in these forums tend to be so extremely positive or negative. The people that come here and read and more importantly post tend to be the ones with extreme points of views and in most cases people with negative views are much more likely to post than people that are indifferent or positive about a subject. So the high rate of negative threads on a multi-game site is in effect highly skewed by people with strong opinons wanting to post them. It doesn't mean they are wrong but it is not necessarily representative of the majority view.

The only thing that this thread and the poll show is that a lot of people don't know how to do/interpret statistics, including the OP - starting with the usage of the term "significant".

You're under the false assumption that those accounts are bought legally. Many of them are purchased with credit cards numbers they so graciously received from the guy that just bought game currency from them. Gold sellers are a major source of customer support problems for all MMO devs.
