Aion Videos: The More You MMO PSA (4:09)

NCsoft has kicked off an Aion PSA (public service announcement) video series called "The More You MMO." The debut video is an amusing take on the seriousness of RMT (Real Money Trading) in Aion and outlines NCsoft's tough stance on the issue.

Hrm... sound seems a bit wonky to me.

Also felt a little too drawn out which made it less amusing and kinda killed the point.

Long, stupid and not funny. Apparently NCSoft can't make PSAs any better than they make games.

how about you make your game less of a grind and less Kinah intensive and maybe just maybe people wont buy kinah. maybe you should spend more time fixing your FKING game and less time on stupid PSAs

Perhaps they should look at what encourages people to purchase power leveling services and kinah. Let me start.

Your game is a chore to play. Rather than getting lost within it into the wee hours of the night, you punch in and out hoping it gets better. Maybe instead of squeezing customers for every minute of their monthly subscription with asinine time sinks, you should have a plethora of interesting things to do to keep customers coming back.

Shijuki writes: I agree with Ravanos. Despite making this video, in reality, they encourage RMT. Crafting requiring tens of millions kinah to reach the cap, wings boasting a price tag of close to 100 million. This proves that the folks over at Ncsoft West are either clueless or have absolutely no control over the game. Wed Mar 24 2010 3:23PM Report

I'm just glad they are still addressing the fact they have exploiters.

And looks like they will continue to shove them out of the game.

I'm agreeing with others, Aion is too kinah reliant, do away with the need for that gold and people don't have the need to buy it, it's quite simple, the game is VERY RMT friendly.

 

As Tzetoth also comments - asinine time sinks do not make for fun game play, couple that with effective punishment for grouping and you can see why it was last years most disappointing MMO

Hey I have an Idea we wil post our really lame video on mmorpg.com, they are all swell guys...they won't make fun of us!

What do you mean we should just improve our own weak ass login code? Or maybe not require six bazillion Kinah to make a lion cloth. You know very well we can't do anything because NCsoft Kr is calling the shots.

So release the lame video..it will be fine!

/sarcasim off

Honestly, my eight year old daughter could run this company better.

What? because there are kinah expensive things to do in the game RMT is encouraged? lol thats terrible logic.

The kind of "bad players" that do buy kinah don't care and this video won't make any difference to change that. Its as if the video is aimed at "silly kids that don't know what they are doing".

awful , just awful. who wrote that script? and you tell me when a ncsoft rep actually comes online to nail these guys, ive reported bots ginding in the same spots for weeks with nothing done about it. buying kinah doesnt ruin the game, ncsoft not fixing the major problems in the games economy/crafting/loot system ruins the game.

ncsoft = fail (at least till 1.9, then maybe they can salvage the remaining few)

I've been playing AION for around two weeks now and so far haven't had a big problem with kinah. I'm only lvl 20 so thats probably why. I have bought in game currency before in other games, but it has to be for a damn good reason. If it comes down to making a huge difference, I mean HUGE, I would probably end up buying kinah though I would prefer not to.

NCsoft makes more money banning bots in lineage 2 and getting resubs then they do from live players. The game is so hard that youre almost forced to bot just to survive. oh and bad acting...worse than an infomercial.

unfortunately lineage 2 if my favorite game :/ every other mmo ive tried just doesnt work for me so i look past how pathetic Ncsoft west is.They killed Aion by simply not caring about bots and only tried to fix it once they lost a ton of subs.

thows few times i post anything on here, i must say stupid vid, NCsoft should have done this at the start of the game, but no gm around for month, each day i reported over 20 goldseller, no reply done with Arion, looking forward to ToR.

I hope this was a homemade project, cause if NCSoft actually funds this kind of crap... wow, just wow. Telling people to not buy kinah is like telling a 3 year old not to eat cookies out of the cookie jar. We all know what 3 year olds do... riiight?

As mmoguy43 says, is not that there are items in-game which are kinda expensive. The point is that the kinah-buyers will always buy kinah, no matter what.

Don't trust me? Look at WoW. EASY-MODE game, and is still nr 1 game in terms of gold selling! So stop complaining and play the game if you like it. If not, /quit and move on! I wont miss you ;)

Actually when I used to play Aion I have seen them do this.  They actually have GM players who log in and kill kinah spamers that have been heavily reported right in front of everyone .   It is kind of cool. 

 

Unfortunately the way Aion is designed is a gold farmer/sellers dream.   The game currency requirements as you get higher are huge by any game standards.   Its all about the kinah so yes of  course the parasites of mmo gaming love it.

And that is why I quit AION.  The basic game mechanics are poor.  If they were designed more in line with a good game like LOTRO I would still be playing AION.

Good message, sounds a bit desperate obviously made to give the player base the impression that they are doing something about the bots and RMT
Funny thing is the game is so bad and boring and full of kill ten rat quests there are more players botting them gold farmers….LOL

I actually thought it was amusing.  I do not play Aion anymore but I have to recognize the fact that NCsoft is at least aware of kinah buying and this is one way of attempting to lessen it and in a light hearted manner.

I know some people commented it was lame, I don't think it was meant to be side-splitting funny, just campy and fun and they achieved that.

For those that don't know it was hinted at in a preview for the upcoming NCsoft title Blade and Soul that Aion was literally made to fund Blade and Soul's development. And judging by the fact that Aion sux and B&S looks awesome as f**k...it's probably true.

With that being said plz keep playing Aion, I'm really looking forward to Blade and Soul :P

The funny thing about AION proving funds for B&S is that no one will buy another NcSoft game if they made GAION a massive failure just so that they can fund another game. No one will buy B&S because it is developed by NcSoft and not one of the Western developers they publish games for. Only games I will ever buy that has an NcSoft logo in it are from Paragon Studios/Arena Net and that's because they are actual Western developers. Guild Wars 2 is the game for us, not GAION, GAION was to hold their asian market until B&S comes out.

Ok so the Video wasn't the best still there is no arguing about the fact that buying gold from rmt is wrong! A bunch of my preposterous kept blaming the game for it i cant understand that at all ok sure u do need a lot of Kinah for certain things but that is nothing u couldn't get on your own if u would spend the time  it might be boring to do so granted but that still is not a reason to support any RMT services at all...

All u peeps who blamed the game for it actually didn't do anything else than whining about the game not handing everything to u right away... there was a time when gamers appreciated the fact that they had to work for something that they actually had to earn it but seems like this times is over since the WOW moron community infested the whole market....

I for once still appreciate it when a game challenges me and makes me work hard to get my stuff sure would be nice if that could happen in a fun way but if that inst the case well u know peeps u always can just quit and try another game and NOT SUPPORT RMT

Guess all i said can be put in a single sentence

If its to tough for u go cry but don't support illegal activities
