I heard in Korea, the game actually doesn't have much of the westernization changes.  That it plays differently.

They still have like 40 servers up.   I think maybe they should have just ported it over direct without nerfing stuff and it probably would have recieved a lot better.  Cause honestly, I'd rather it have been a great PvP game than a half-assed PvE game with no PvP like it was.  I would still be playing it if that was the case.

Honestly, as a person whose played aion from the CB till now, the games population is kinda dwindling. I see almost no new faces, and many of the old ones are long gone. It may just be because I'm an elyos on vaizel, but whatever. If I don't que for C-dregion within 5 minutes of it popping, i usually wait 40min-2hours or I just don't get in. Finding groups in the past month or 2 has really become a hassle. If I want to do BT or DP, i usually have to take an hour+ of time shouting in lfg to get a group, and by then it usually is scrapped. I LOVE the game, but it needs more people...and the way ncsoft runs things, its just bad and I really don't see how they are going to get a massive amount of players back to the game

This said, I have to give props to their LFG tool.    Probably one of the best I've seen in any game.

 

I hate how many games try to force you into options.  This tool never did.  It had you enter like 1 option and was to enter a comment.  In this comment you could put anything  "L50 Dredge"   or  "LFG Morhiem Grind"  etc.  Then it would list out in a bulletin board fashion when you opened it up.   It even had a Search at the top so you could put like "DP" in it and it would list every post with DP only.  You could sort by level or enter a range of levels.  It was exactly what an LFG tool should be.  Simple yet powerful.  Too bad there wasn't enough groups in the game usually to have to use the Search function. 

 

I think future games should take note to Aion's LFG tool (cough Blizz cough).  This is all the power you need.

I left Aion about 2 months ago, after playing continuosly from beta. On pve side is still impossibe to get groups for BT or DP (major instances) and drops are nothing. On pvp side, at least on Telemachus Elyos side, I know that sieges are pretty nice and balaurea too...but how long will last this time?

But I won't come back. Maybe with 2.5, with new instances, and if something changes with drops and craft. Is a very frustrating game, and pretty boring at endgame, especially in pve side. But also a lot of "pvpers" left....always same problem for me: they don't care very much of western customers.

Yeh all 10 looking for tank and/or cleric ;) (elyos side btw)

Is not easy for me leaving a game after 18 months of hardcore playing..but really, at the end was boring, and a bit frustrating.

 I took a break just as AoB came out.  I had spent a year staying up way too late and needed to recharge.  I've been back a while now and, of course, wondering why I left.  If I decided to roll a new character I would choose Cleric for quick groups.  Glads can main tank but Chanters cannot main heal for very long so Clerics are always needed.  Plus they are pretty brutal in PvP.

Just not worth my time anymore.

The grinding is insane. Because it actually does not stop when you are at level cap. To get top gear, or gather materials to craft it you need to spend same time as a full time job. For example I calculated the cost of materials to craft one of those balaur bad ass weapons to around 2000 million kinnah. The fastest, easiest and most boring way to get this is to farm aether for 8 milllion/hour, and I was a very effective aether farmer using morph techniques for best value, normal farmers probably need twice as much time. So after 250 hours with my hardcore grinding I have a chance to craft one of those bad ass weapons. This is then not a guarantee that the weapon actually is crafted since its a probability craft but the calculated cost is an average it should be over time. With that said someone will as usuall say they have crafted their weapon for 150 millions which then means they have been extremely lucky with the probability factor and counted their cost of personal grinding materials as zero since they see grinding time spent as no value. Anyhow whether its crafting, pve or ap point farming for gear it takes many hundreds of hours to get any gear that have power worth mention in end game.

 

For me it was just to forget about getting any competitive gear in this game because of the time it takes. If also the leveling did not took so much time I might had leveled up my sorcerer instead who does not need gear to be competitive. I might come back again to this character again because of one of the enjoyments in this game, the sexy avatars.

Wow, that would be a long time grinding. How long ago was this and what item are you referring to? I'm pretty sure you are talking about the Balic or Dragon weapons but I'm not sure. I would have to check patch notes but many things have gotten easier since Aione release. They have made tweaks in a lot of different things. I remember seeing two golds drop period in Fire Temple. In the two months I have been back I have gotten 5 golds as I have been questing and a handful of blues. As far as Kinah I hear the Balauria content is very nice on Kinah rewards. I'm not sure though but I'm 49 so I'll let you know soon.

Just not worth my time anymore.

Yes Im talking about Balic crafts and I've been there lately after all updates. The balic drop rates was supposed to increase but the material prices still continued to be sky high so nothing has changed about the grinding time and cost it takes to craft good items.

It's not that difficult at lower levels to get items. Im only talking about end game that requires insane amount of time if you wanna compete and be in party with the hardcore guys.

I tried Aion again in 2011, Reguardless of their changes the reason I will not play Aion, is because of what they are doing, and I have said this in another post once, but will post here again for you.

1. NC Soft as we all know add weapon skins, and Pets to their cash shop, but the specific reason I will not return back to Aion again is because NC Soft wants to charge people Real Life money just to do plastic surgery, or change a characters appearance, or any detail of a character, and I believe this should all be free with a paid subscription but instead they want to nickle and dime its customers.

I have been playing Aion since Beta, and It was a great game at first, but once they add additional services like this and start screwing over its customers I refuse to play any games like this.

Here is a small list of games that do not nickle and dime people Including some Free 2 play games.

1. Global Agenda

2. World OF Warcraft

3. Star Trek Online

4. Champions Online

5. DarkFall Online

I have played all these games, and they allow me to change, or customize my character FREE OF CHARGE at any time I want to, however they do sell additional items in a cash shop, but they allow me to customize all my base characters such as voice, Sound, Character height all for free, I dont have to pay for it.

The only two things I think are acceptable for any game company to charge for are.

Character Transfers, or Character Rename, and additional services but not things that will impact actual game play.

 I agree that NC should allow one free appearance ticket to each character of a person with a paying subscription.  That said, very few games allow you to change your appearance once you've created your character without charging you to do so.  Can you change your appearance for free in WoW now?

As you said, the items that NC sells have no effect on actual gameplay.  They are fluff and I don't have a problem with it.  I would much rather pay for a game with this feature than a F2P with a cash shop.  I think the bigger problem is people want the shiny things other people have.

Look at it this way.  That money goes into the same pot as subscription money.  That money, hopefully, is going towards future development and support for the game.

Edit: You do know that WoW has a cash shop with in game items right? Mounts, pets, etc? I have not played the others you have listed but I would take WoW off of that list.

Just not worth my time anymore.
