Aion is fine and all, but what really bothers me is the distinct lack of any sort of Anistropic Filtering and Anti-Aliasing that I could have sworn used to be in the game.  I have seen posts about the options being in the graphics settings menu in previous updates, but they just aren't there anymore. 

And the worst part: I can't even force AA or AF at the driver level because Aion works off a bin file instead of an exe like a game that makes sense.  nVidia software only recognizes .exe's and the game looks no better with settings turned on at driver level.  Someone seriously ballsed up the graphical stuff in this release, because it used to be a beautiful game.

I really dont know why people are still complaining about the slow leveling. With how low they made the exp requirments to level and the increse to the exp campaign quests its like 2-3 campaign quests per level till 41-42 where you then run out of campaigns. when 4.0 came out i leveled a songweaver to 50 in 3 day. 3 DAYS. it took 2 months to get to 55 back in 2.0 and then 1.5 months to get to 60 in 3.5 (from level 1 for both i mean). now its what 1-2 weeks?  anyone who thinks the leveling in aion is still a grind fest is dead wrong. i skipped all the old quests i use to do to level and only did campaigns and a few key instance runs to gear up and i was 50 i was actually suprised cause i hadnt meant to level fast at all.

and your opinion matters. i personally like the game but yes i agree with u it needs something more i like the leveling speed its balanced. but the P2W needs to change like yesterday would of been perfect lolz but beggars cant be choosers xD . and its thanks to our opinions they can make a game better anyone that gets mad at some ones opinion is a poop lolz XD

I agree that opinions matter - providing:

There is reasoning behind them. To just say something like combat sucks doesn't tell people why. Is it range combat that's the issue? melee? pet commands? Add some thought behind the comment, rather than just this sucks.

All it did was add two new classes?  - not sure how adding these could be a disappointment. I cannot think of another high profile mmo that has introduced new two classes simultaneously. 

"who knows what to end game" - well the obvious inference here is that the poster hasn't researched what is going to be introduced.

So yes well informed opinions can be important

uh shocking, you reinstalled a game you didnt like, and STILL didn't like it?

leveling actually was boosted like shit. you might have noticed if you would have tried.

I should be able to level at a reasonable pace by doing the content I enjoy, which is primarily the old style quests and killing stuff.  I wasn't interested in doing the campaign content, so yeah, the leveling was painful enough to not want to play anymore once I got my bard up to 26.  I get no enjoyment from funneled content, whether it be campaign, raiding or pvp.  Why are developers so unwilling to offer multiple paths of progression in their games any more, especially in the mid to upper levels?

Agree, plus you have to have that Pando Media Booster virus installed, which is a flat out no no, far as I am concerned.

Pando media virus..."virus" lol. People still think this is a virus? Is bittorrent a virus too? Are you going to try and tell me that Google Chrome isn't a web browser next? If that's the only thing turning you off of games then you should never play another MMO. Every MMO with the exception of a few higher end AAA titles have some form of delivery software. Happy cloud for Tera, Pando mediabooster(which is no longer required, just an FYI, since NC got rid of the old launcher for aion.), even the Akami Netsession software is used by a few companies. It's just delivery software...pretty much the same exact thing as Bittorrent you just can't interact with it.

 

Also...Did you guys even try going to the fast track server? or did you just go outside and try to grind one or two mobs.

You obviously do not understand how pando works.  Good for developers, bad for the users, it lets your PC act like a host for others software downloads. 

that's called a torrent system, most mmos use it tho days.

 

if you can't handle a game's starter (or it's companies starter), i suggest you don't play games in the next few years, you won't have a lot of fun then.

blizz will do EXACTLY the same btw.... shocked 8 million users i guess... yeayea.

 

i have pando installed, and it doesn't do anything i dont want it to do. if you can't handle your pc.... you maybe better should have sticked to the PS3 :P

One of the worst grind games I have ever played.  Even with double XP servers, I can't imagine going through that grind session ever again.  Was absolutely horrible.

What does the leveling being boosted have to do with my post?  Nothing.  I said it was boring.  That has nothing to do with length of time to level.

Secondly, I've reinstalled games I didn't like and ended up liking them.  Very few, I agree but it has happened.  Lotro being the best example.  First 2 years of that game drove me nuts, then the Moria expansion hit and the combat had a retool done and it was hands above what had come before, so I bought a lifetime sub and haven't regretted it since.

Fine, I'll bite.  The combat, to me, felt off pace.   The "feel" of combat feels off as do the sound effects which accompany it.  I really detest the whole flight system and control style as it doesn't fit what I think it should "feel" like.  It's subjective to be sure.  Secondly, 2 new classes.  Shouldn't they feel different and bring something unique to the table?  Playing them felt like all the other classes.  Same boring pace of combat, same horrid sound effects, same lack of connecting with my character and the game world. 

I don't need to research the endgame because if the leveling game is this bad, the endgame isn't worth the trouble it takes to get to it.  Again, OPINION.

Boy have my opinions for this game changed in the past five years! I loved everything about this game, it was just epic. I have since left it, haven't logged in since last year - actually uninstalled it :/  I am very sentimental about this particular game because it is the one that got me into MMO's! But even I have to admit that there are some things about this game/company that ruin it for me...

The latency issues would be my first complaint, my husband and I live in the Northern US and have always had to use WTFast for this game - from day one it was always crazy pings for us. It was a pretty common occurrence for us to be rubberbanding around corners when there were a lot of people around, fort sieges were insane (back when there were 600-800people in a single abyss battle I couldn't move my toon at all! Let alone heal anyone!)  The game always feels laggy and not smooth, after playing games like WoW and GW2 I have realized that Aion is really pretty bad :(  I have thought about coming back and checking it out from time to time, but the lag and high ping are really just too much....

I also can't stand the fact that whoever is in charge of the website can't get their act together and update the damn thing! I mean they still haven't updated gear from the Balurea expansion!  Anyone that has a max level toon looks naked on the website because none of their gear is recognized by the website - it is really just laughable at this point.

I didn't care for what they were offering on the cash shop either, a little too close to a pay to win game IMO...

But there will always be a special place in my heart for Aion. Ahh the days of epic fort seiges, flying, dredges (had some great dredges with my static team!) open world pvp was great back when the most geared people had Fenris haha! Also the character creation is one of the best I have ever seen, so much customization is awesome!

 

Lots to love in this game.  I spent a good three years in Aion.  My first mmo love was L2 and I had a very similar experience.  I wouldn't say Aion is bad but it is aimed at a certain sort of player.   I never say never to a return and I finally managed to get the frames over 60 in a conjested areas. (I7 4770k is the key)  Also adding a ssd onto my system is night and day for the game(gets rid of the slow loading avatars and most the lag).  There's always that "you can't go back" feeling.. many if not all those friends you made are gone but hey there will always be memories and heck who knows what else they'll add in the future?  I'm still waiting for that underwater area they hinted at in visions.

fyi i have a brand new rig -8 core very nice SSD & graphics card (and 25 down 2 up) and even still Aion is unplayable if you live in New England---they have a serious problem with there game and server tech, its fine if you live in say Texas...

I wish that just upgrading my computer was enough to fix the issues with Aion's lag/FPS and ping :/ I upgraded to a SSD and have  an 8core processor! These really didn't do much for my problems sadly.... I would totally install it again and mess around with my cleric if I knew a sure fire way to deal with this, but computer upgrades and a proxy server don't help.

I really loved this game so much. The lore is amazing and i liked the idea of there being two factions fighting and how the planet was like an apple's core, one race in the top and one in the bottom. But that was back in 2009 or so. I just got tired of the grind and soon later it  just wasn't worth the subscription. And now that its free-2-play people download it and uninstall and never come back because the grind is just to much. The quests are too simple and not dynamic enough and not on gear towards playing as a group. The classes are all amazing. I would come back to this game if they makers made it so you can attack while moving, dynamic events, better party organization etc. The graphics are amazing and I loved playing a Spiritmaster only until lvl 20-ish because of the grind. This game needs to borrow some ideas and concepts from Guild Wars 2 and the upcoming FFXIV to create a better mmoprg.

Agree, plus you have to have that Pando Media Booster virus installed, which is a flat out no no, far as I am concerned.

Pando media virus..."virus" lol. People still think this is a virus? Is bittorrent a virus too? Are you going to try and tell me that Google Chrome isn't a web browser next? If that's the only thing turning you off of games then you should never play another MMO. Every MMO with the exception of a few higher end AAA titles have some form of delivery software. Happy cloud for Tera, Pando mediabooster(which is no longer required, just an FYI, since NC got rid of the old launcher for aion.), even the Akami Netsession software is used by a few companies. It's just delivery software...pretty much the same exact thing as Bittorrent you just can't interact with it.

 

Also...Did you guys even try going to the fast track server? or did you just go outside and try to grind one or two mobs.

You obviously do not understand how pando works.  Good for developers, bad for the users, it lets your PC act like a host for others software downloads. 

that's called a torrent system, most mmos use it tho days.

 

if you can't handle a game's starter (or it's companies starter), i suggest you don't play games in the next few years, you won't have a lot of fun then.

blizz will do EXACTLY the same btw.... shocked 8 million users i guess... yeayea.

 

i have pando installed, and it doesn't do anything i dont want it to do. if you can't handle your pc.... you maybe better should have sticked to the PS3 :P

Well I cannot help it if you refuse to understand how pando works.  You have zero control of it, and it uses your bandwidth all the time.  [mod edit]

Same here. I think that's a part of the problem with people these days with MMO's - they get (or want to get) to the "end" so quick that no wonder they're so bored so fast

Pando Media Booster is just a fancy Torrent thats aids in downloading and streaming large files. You can switrch it off after you've finished downloading or let is seed other peoples download.

Umm Idk if yous noticed but... i just installed 4.0 and Pando is no where to be found--horray!

They seem to have repalced it with there own p2p file sharing option (Like Blizz has done)

 Aion 4.0 helps the lag problem :)

I have always had terrible lag in AIon, that is until i found a community manager blog entry that said switching to X64 seemed to solve this issue for some reason.

With previous versions of Aion this had to be done manually by changing code in a config file and it felt like a chore and a bit of a hack.

Thankfully Aion 4.0 does this on the fly (installs the x64 version to appropriate systems) during install and the game seems much more responsive. They sill have an issue with ping but for some reason (That tech speaking doesn't make sense when comparing X32 to X64)  AIon is playable even @  with a ping of 175 in X64 bit.

I also like the new music and character creator and character selection screens.
