GameGuard Goes Bye-Bye

GameGuard Goes Bye-Bye - MMORPG.com

The Aion official website has been updated with details on Aion's launch version, and one bit that stands out in particular is NCsoft's dropping of GameGuard from the title. Realizing the overall hindrance GameGuard's presence is causing users due to beta feedback, NCsoft has done the right thing by their fans and dropped the tech until they can figure out how to "effectively utilize GameGuard within Aion in the future".

GameGuard is often found in free-to-play/Asian MMOGs in order to curb cheating, but tends to provide more of a headache to legitimate users than it may be worth.

Another notable change coming to Aion at launch is the raise of the level cap from 45 to 50.

The original announcement is available here.

Did GameGuard drive you nuts? If so, on a scale of 1-10 with seven being the highest, how happy are you NCsoft has dropped the tech? Let us know in the comments!
