Find yourself sitting in a seven hour queue recently? You can thank your fellow community members for that. Many players have been abusing the player shop system in Aion, which lets players set up shop anywhere in the world and hawk their wares, in order to avoid queue times.
Gotta break for dinner? Don't want to come back and deal with a queue? Set up shop! Up until today, being in shop mode protected you from the idle out timer. This practice has compounded the issue of already crowded servers by causing queue times to shoot up as more and more people catch on and set up shop to avoid idling out.
Well this morning Aion went down for maintenance, and returned with a newly implemented 30 minute limit on player shops. Now, if only they added some more servers!
