 I have a pretty hard time understanding the score this game has on here (7.5 atm), it's not exactly a bad game, but not a good one either, guessing people just really like the large scale pvp?

 Overall the game itself feels pretty old, or just really far from finished, if it were Alpha or earilier I would understand, but it's not. 

 The gfx themself are alright, but everything else is just horrible. Things like the text used above mobs, the environments and their lack of collision detection, clunky controls/movement/animations, undependable skill useage, and it also has one of the worst UI's i've seen, which also doesn't work propperly when windows are opened over top of it (want to click and drag to sell something? oh oops, it just grabbed and dragged my active quest list from behind that instead), it's all pretty inexcuseble.

 The game doesn't even run very well, it's like there are constant latency issues from the server or something, since everything is fine and running perfectly smooth until you start walking, once you do it stutters/chugs along quite a bit.

 ..and before someone says It, it's not my internet or system, and it did the exact same thing with min settings or max.

 

 I honestly don't know how gpotatoe can be successfully selling CS items when the game is in such a sorry condition, but i'll admit the game does have some promise, and i'll likely play it for another day or two, if only they would finish making it instead of selling it, it could be a pretty enjoyable game and deserve that 7+ rating.

I'd say it is far from finish and requires quite a bit of polish (and debugging) to make things go smoothly.  The bugs were actually worst a few months back when open beta began.  I remember falling through the floor a few times at the Hold dungeon and having the water effect show up when there isn't any water nearby.  The phantom water effect was fixed rather quickly but I'm not sure about the Hold (as I haven't revisited again).

I'm not currently playing it but may revisit it in a few months to see how far polishing and debugging it has come.  I'm hoping that the controls are better that the spell casting exploits are fixed.

The publishers are selling the cash items because the game is "good enough" to be played.  Players are buying those items because it brings them value in their PvP and dungeon exploration.  The makers and the sellers are 2 different identities though as gPotato only publishes the game and it's up to the developers in Korea to fix the bugs.

Firkrag, you quit a game because your lady character was wearing a thong basically?

I bet you're one of those westeners who would be happy to let your children play Gears of War, Unreal Tournament, etc. Yet not let them play, Conan for example simply because it has bear breasts in it. I'm sick of this mentality over media to be honest. How is extreme violence acceptable, whilst a little bit of an arse showing is not?

Just remember that one day, your kid is going to be f***ing the opposite sex, not chainsawing people in half (I hope!).

Just think about what you're saying for a second.

EDIT: I think I should point out that I don't play the game. I played untill lv.18 way back in the beginning of open beta, for about a week?

The beta left a great impression on myself and most everyone that played it.  But after that it fell apart pretty damn fast with the "devloping" of it, how they handled the servers, how they ignored all the malasian players spamming/lagging it, etc., etc.

 

You can keep listing "little things" that just became way to infuriating that had almost nothing to do with the game making MANY people quit it being flat out sick and tired of it all..

 

It sounds kind of Xenophobic, but it really was a very stupid idea to try and make it "global", caused nothing but pain and chaos to everyone..  Even with that sorted out (was it for that matter?)  still doesn't change all the things they did wrong with the game.

 

When I quit it was with to many people to give numbers, from <b>GIANT</b> clans to many other players.  But before that we all enjoyed the CBT quite a bit and was the main reason we kept playing it and dealt with all the MASSIVE ammounts of crap from them and the game for so long before giving up on it..

"Quiz time! <dances>" - Pran

9/27/10 6:04:17 AM#25

Well, the first thing that I like about this game is the Pran system. I mean they are soooo cute! That alone is reason enough to play Aika.

Secondly, and more importantly and seriously, is the PVP. I find the relic wars extremely exciting. People from their nations really fight hard during raids and defend their relics. This makes the game more exciting.

Also, the community is GREAT! I still don't have a guild since I'm not looking for a guild even if I'm level 22 already. But, I can survive without the guild. Why? Because there are people who are willing to help. If I need a party in Ursula dungeon for example, there are people who will accompany me without waiting too long. When I once asked for help to fight a boss, two people came running to help me. One of them was even in a town which is far from my location but he still came. THAT's what you call a dynamic community. :)

Yeah, Aika Global is really fun to play. The pran system is cute. I can't wait for my pran to evolve. :))

The relic raids are awesome. Players use different strategies and skill to get the relics of different nations and those who are being raided try their best to stop those invaders. Really awesome to participate.

The guild I'm in is really helpful but at runs at the dungeon I still get help from different guilds from the nation I'm in. :)

One thing I noticed in this game is that GMs are always present, on all realms. They work in 8 hour shifts and they're really involved (events, announcements and stuff). Also, I've never seen goldseller spam. I'm playing on Aika Global.

No, if you had the ability to read and understand english, then you can see that I quit because the female child, AKA priest character, had her nipples showing out through her lingerie along with a massive overdose of sexual innuendos that the semi naked female child pet, AKA pran, was throwing out all over the place.

 

Its also very moronic of you to categorize me as one of those westerners who think showering overtones of violence on my children is OK but anything sex related is a strict NO-NO. You sound like your parent(s) dint let you play AoC because it has nudity in it, while getting you a GoW box on your birthday. So you take your situational anecdote from that South Park episode(I think that episode was called Fun With Weapons?) and think that I am one such parent who doesnt give a crap about violence when sex is somewhere involved.

Again how moronic of you to probably take an episode's plot from an animated show and use it as a skewered POV analysis of a person over the internets. Also just to clarify your misguided notions, extreme violence is always given a R, M, NC 17 or atleast a PG rating in most forms of rated media. PG means parental guidance where you do your job as a parent and keep your children from getting bombarded by adult content(sex or detailed gore violence) if they arent old enough to personally cope with such hardcore material, so you might wanna check that up with your caregivers and get it cleared up before getting all sick over the media's mentality.

 

Frankly you could do yourself a big favour by remembering that your "kid" shouldnt be f***ing the opposite sex or hell even the same sex as long as he/she still is a "kid". Or do you not understand the meaning of the word kid or the meaning of mental/sexual maturity or the meaning of...a person's age? Dunno about how you have been brought up, but Bad parenting is Bad in any part of the world.

You better think about what you are thinking for a second bub, before you go start being Dr Ruth playing advocate to all the MMO pedophiles who play this game for the Wrong reasons. You talk like you are oblivious to the obvious truth and then trying to tell other people on how to raise their kids...what a joke.

My gripe is with the aspects of this game that encourages and caters to the ones flocking here only for the Lolita complex soothing gameplay found in AIKA. And the broken game engine (multi casting AOEs without cooldowns) also to a certain extent. And nothing more. If you like this game for the raids, nation VS nation wars or the fast leveling to the cap then good for you that you found something you like. But AIKA should be given a M ESRB rating only for those other parts which are tailored to the needs of the mentally unwell people.

This sums up my impression of Aika.  I didn't have to stick around long to figure out that the loli jokes everyone was making had basis in fact.  People who want to run around with sub fem humanoid pets in a game should be over 18, and the pets should be clearly stated to be over age 18.  At which point, knock yourselves out with the 'master master' bit and all the innuendo your little heart desires, I don't care.  What consenting adults do with other consenting adults doesn't bother me in the slightest.  

 

I don't know why this game hasn't sparked some serious global outrage.  

 

To be fair to some of the comments about Westerners exposing kids to fictional violence but not sex, yep, it's true.  At least in America.  We are hypocritical about it.  Our Puritan culture has always cheerfully allowed violence (how do you think the Europeans made room on this continent-they killed off as many of the original inhabitants as they deemed necessary to get what they wanted, while calling themselves Christian folk and repressing human sexuality as much as they could).  Is this a good thing?  Hell no.  Should we let our kids saturate themselves in violent games?  Hell no.  But that doesn't mean we should accept sexuality in children's games, and we shouldn't accept pedophelia anywhere.

I am convinced there is only one way to eliminate these grave evils, namely through the establishment of a socialist economy, accompanied by an educational system which would be oriented toward social goals.

So you quit game, because female adult character (ok, if you are so strict about age, we can recognize priest as an teenager female, but still definitely far from a child) has breasts (never shown naked, only if you strip your character to underwear you see nipple perks) - horrible, let's ban all beaches, you can see there much more. Plus game contain female child pet, which is NEVER shown naked in game, NEVER shows any sexual behavior - horrible, lets shut down kindergartens and schools, there is lots of female children there.

No, no teenage pran innuendos in there.  What were we thinking?  

 

What do you think of my new curves, master?  Come here and check me out.  Don't you wish your guildmates were hot like me?

 

Blech.

Nothing extraordinary for teenager girl (not mistake with child - on this link pran is showed in child form, while sounds comes from teenager form) to look more mature ('It is also the stage of life in which a child develops secondary sex characteristics (for example, a deeper voice and larger adam's apple in boys, and development of breasts and more curved and prominent hips in girls)') or talk in little erotic way, still very limited in Aika. 'Adolescents who have a good relationship with their parents are less likely to engage in various risk behaviors, such as smoking, drinking, fighting, and/or sexual intercourse.' - if teenage pran has erotic character - it must be from intentional choices of player, normally you will hardly get such pran.

Sometimes people can be very narrow minded about stuff. They only see what they wanted to see. Not getting the big picture actually. Maybe you are the few ones that zoom in on your characters and your pran to see their bodies and stuff then react negatively after satisfying yourself. Tsk tsk. Tend not to focus much on the characters body but the enemies surrounding your character and the quests.

No idea, I played it and thought it was a pretty crappy game myself, don't see anything good about it from when I played. Especally since Gpotato hosts it. They gonna also Host Iris Online so expect them to ruin it too.

A teenager is still a child, and the innuendo is clearly designed with a purpose other than teenage realism.  No parent would ever want her daughter talking to anyone the way the 'mature' pran does.  On top of that, the teenage pran still looks more like a ten or eleven year old than a fifteen or sixteen year old.  I have seen teen pran screenshots. 

 

This thread, from the official GPotato Aika forums, shows what the community thinks of the mature (or as many of them call her, the sexy pran):  http://aika-forum.gpotato.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=8990

 

And why are all prans apparantly naked, at least from the waist up, when in conversation with your character? 

 

Someone else asked that in the thread I linked above, actually.  Here is what another poster answered:

 

Same motive about all pran look like pran, the female dark elfs in every mmo, the japoneses sound of Aion.

the answer is.. Korean devs team are... Pervets.

No parent would also want her daughter to be involved in combat, where can be wounded or even die. Still this is only game, not reality. Looks like pran's parent (goddess Aika, players are not pran's parents, just temporary companions) does not care much

Do you really think a game with a child pet class where the child pet makes so many innuendos that she is referred to as 'sexy pran' by the community is a good game for children to be playing?

 

For that matter, do you really think that's a good game for adults to play?

One of 6 possible teenager's pran  personality is called sexy (or sassy or mature, depending of version), so those kind of pran's are called sexy, is not general name for all pran's. In fact, sexy pran's are rather rare sight in Aika (cause those personality is not easy to obtain).

 

Even if some purist or prudes may find some parts of game disturbing, it does not change my opinion. Aika is very good game to play for all, has some lacking points (even with quests leveling is too much grindy, very limited customization, gender locked classes,  too fast to reach end-game), but still has some nice or unique futures, lots of pvp activities, some funny and interesting areas (map looking like skull, penguins on desert ...) nice looking and very detailed gear, pran - cute and never boring companion. In global Aika you can add very good game support (gPotato lacked more in this area) and often game changes.
