  • "Ultimate Transformations:


    We are still evaluating if we will add that a transformation can’t be downgraded when fusing legendary ones or not and will inform you when a decision is made."


    While you guys are still mulling this decision, most of us have stopped logging in. Everyone is sick and tired of rng, micro transactions, more RNG, fuse rng and depending on events to achieve anything.


    " Stigma enchantment:


    The stigma event happens now once a month.


    Please keep in mind that rates are subject to change from one event to another. Rates will always be announced for each event (in the maintenance informati on)."


    Why add that lawyer loophole with regards to the rates? Is it really necessary? Can we have a word on enchant rates from 1-9? Ya'll had a great opportunity to increase availability of basic items (+9s) and yet the hellish rates were kept, making it easier to go improved rather than 9. Do we not want new players and returnees/rerolls to have a chance?


    "

    S Rank minions:


    We are evaluating the possibility of having an event for it. In which case the auto-hunting would be disabled for the event duration."


    Permanently disable botting and add those S minions on a perma drop basis, no more events, for the love of...


    "

    Autohunting:

    There is no plan to deactivate it permanently on our side. Nonetheless, we will be flexible and deactivate it temporarily for certain events."


    This decision was based on? Intensive conversations with the trolls on discord? How about running an in-game pole, with the results posted?


    " Elite levels:


    Currently planned for end of October. There should also be one round in December"


    Great, everyone already started hoarding GPS... Why is this feature in the game? Seriously, what's the point? Everyone has 2-10k days of active GP. Makes no sense, as the benefits are close to 0.


    "Veteran rewards:


    We are working on updating it. We can’t give you a date yet unfortunately."


    I left in 3.x, came back in 4.x,quit before 5.0 and came back with 7.0. We still have the same rewards as in NCWest times...


    "Platinerk:


    The first iterations were not meeting our expectations, therefore, we are working on another concept. We cannot share any details yet."


    No idea what this is and why it's worth mentioning, particularly since there wasn't any info regarding it. Seems a bit out of topic, if you ask me.


    " Classic server:


    We are still discussing with NCSOFT the possibility of having it in the future."


    There's a ton of pirated sites/game versions that I despise that have long catered to that particular segment of the player base. Seems like wasted resources and even less people on official servers if you add it.


    [...]


    I would ask others to keep it clean and discuss further.


    Thanks,

  • That Platinerk will make possibile change cubes one kind to another in ratio 1:1?


    Not talking about monstera cubes but about them boosting stats. Is sick when U need just 1 cube for next level and can’t get it but have a lot of trash cube which are worth just 1 kinah each

  • Whats the problem with auto hunt exactly? Is it really that problematic for you to have essential game item such as rank S minion (and like 10k hp, 200 atk) for minimal effort, just some luck?


    If so then how come you keep giving away away more game breaking items like ulti form this way, for literally no effort, just some luck?

  • You stated you are looking into all these things. which is great but there is a lot you are not addressing which is game breaking for new or returning players.


    points that I feel need addressing.


    stigma and skills


    why cant you increased +1 to +9 permanently yes it great you are going to be running stigma event once a month. But returning and new players need a way to at least deal with this forever. or they will just leave as the gap is to large.


    davantion skills:


    This need addressing for new and returning players it takes so long for a new or returning player to get the skill books let alone get them +++


    Cubes


    where do I start I see players that have played for some time and they still have not got there cubes done.


    7.7 is just around the corner we hope so and there will be new gear.


    so is it not time to lower the years of work to get Ultimate silent black set ?


    Getting groups when lower geared is very hard how is any new or returning player meant to get the best PVP gear? yes we go up in stages but even if you got the 2nd for last stage PVE gear you still can't get groups.


    GF needs new players badly the servers are dead you need to talk to the players and take ideas on broad to keep players or soon Aion will be dead.


    look at what NA are doing they really started to hear what players are saying and that's a great start but very late in the day but they started.


    GF needs to do the same or there won't be no more Aion for GF to make money out of.

  • They had time to prepare new elite rewards round , but no time change a bit veteran rewards or finally icrease lvl

    i got my S rank minion so i don't understand point of remove it from drop list, they could make them dropable in instances so mobs are limited and you can't bot if is that huge deal

    Thye looking for cause to remove or disable something

  • You should be adding the possibility to gain monster cubes (platin) for instances such as Prometum Hardmode (prigga especially). 0 events, 0 ingame ways to obtain. Only p2w... Why is a essential item locket behind either paying in shop or waiting for god knows how long for event just for PVE instance? Has it really come to this that ingame instance(s) are locked behind paywall for it to be completed without a full 6x p2w shop group? How can you call it F2P game if content is barely doable without paying beyond goldpack?


    My proposed fix for this is event for a good amount (AS FAST AS POSSIBLE) and changing the Glory NPC which sells random monster cubelets for exp insignias from opposing field to your homefield rewards. As nobody conquers opposing field forts inggi/gelk from the other faction as was supposed to be the MAIN way of leveling that field, getting your glory level on those fields with the terrible quest selection is absolutely offputting to anyone who has any sanity and outright impossible without many many many months.

  • If your "S rank minion event" is just putting minions on open world drop with a ridiculously low rate and disable auto hunting for the duration, then you can keep your event for yourself.

    No one enjoys mindlessly farming mobs for hours for a really low chance to get something. Events are supposed to be fun, not transform aion into your second job.


    If you wanna make something fun you could for exemple make a "treasure hunt" event where chests spawns in inggison and gelkmaros, but only elyos can open gelkmaros chests and only asmos can open inggison chests, put decent rewards inside the chests and add event lugbug quests that provide extra rewards for a certain amount of chests opened.

    I hate stupid people.

    what about the new player who cant quest in their own map when its full of enemy faction player? :>

    You want an event only for selected people? Thats the way to go.

  • What new players there are none.

    If event would be newbie friendly it would lead to situation where newbies who gonna quit in a week will get ult form while old players will end up getting useless [...]. That's not a way to go. If Gameforge wants long term goals then it shouldnt be for everyone, simple as that

  • New players are almost non existent. I'm tired of the mentality of "events have to cater to everyone so let's just serve the same garbage everytime because there is only so much we can do that wouldn't exclude the 5% of the server that still runs in lisiel gear".

    It's ok to have some events once in a while for people who actively play the game. Every event these days is only about mindlessly grinding every instance despite 80% or more being completely useless or afk events, event should give you something different to do, something fresh that break the routine, not strengthen it.

    And they could add as well some pvp lugbug quests to defend your own map against invaders, to give some breathing room to the few ungeared people.

    I hate stupid people.

  • There are 3000 people on just two of those "Classic servers" you mentioned at this hour 12:28 PM GMT +0 (basically, not prime time at all). Granted, they aren't classic servers per say. You can toy with the idea of what classic is, you could start at 2.* and make it progressive and stop at 4.*, which I think is the best idea.


    There are 1500 people online on Aion EU Official servers, same time (given the cap is 5500 still).


    So Gzus, you couldn't be more wrong. Wasted resources? Aion is only alive in nostalgia my friend. That's why I don't blame Gameforge for everything, the direction NCsoft went with Aion is terrible.


    They'd lose more players on official ones? Hah, good. Let it die. As if that didn't happen already.


    Due note that the servers I checked, are just 2. There's probably much more out there.


    So Galeas do take this in consideration, since you said that you do take feedback.

  • I'm with you Black but do bear in mind the "classic" on official will come with all those things attached to 7.x (events, grind, shop).


    It will quickly turn into a cash cow and no pserver player will come. At best it will be the same tryhards from live patch with maxed out twinks ensuring others will not log in.


    If the current live servers can't hold on to their peeps whether they are endgame, mid or starters, what makes you think a classic server will be any different? Outside of that nostalgia login, in 2 to 3 months it will become barren and yes, a waste of resources.

  • Disabling auto hunting and adding additional drop which was in 6.2-7.3 will be enough. Who needs S minion go grinding. In this time u can just pray for rng fuse 2 A lvl minion per 4-5 months.

    Funny to see, when kids talking about boring mobs grinding troubles in mmo, but they still cry and buy rng boxes in shop for cash, when they can earn it for free just because mob can drop it.

  • "Platinerk:

    No idea what this is and why it's worth mentioning, particularly since there wasn't any info regarding it. Seems a bit out of topic, if you ask me.

    When Patch 6.0 hit Aion became F2P in Korea. Therefore NC-SOFT changed their veteran system drastically.

    Since our Veteran and Elite reward systems where highly criticized at that time leading to the biggest loss in players in Aion history, GF announced they would rewipe our veteran system into something new called "Platinerk".

    But it never came out.

    According to rumors they only announced this to lure people back with Patch 6.0.
    6.0 was advertised and hyped as a Patch where everyone had to start from zero again. But you couldn't really say that when a new or returning player had to reach elite reward status first.

    People who ask GF about Platinerk only want to troll them and remember them about there false promises. So indeed it is not worth mentioning anymore.

    Work for 1 hour to get chance of getting something = omg p2w kid


    Farm for 50h to get chance of getting something = f2p nice


    No surprise they keep simplyfing the game

    I have only one thing to say about that.


    There were two polls done here, on the forum, and one on discord.

    For those who have deigned to answer, it's about 55/60% in FAVOR of autohunt, and 40/45% AGAINST it.


    (and as said multiple times by Galeas, in-game poll are broken) (again)

    Kayiane (Cleric) - Dhatonis (Barde) - Kwiick (Painter)
    Jupither (Cleric)
    Urtem Ragna Elyos

    Muleonis (Cleric) - Ajara (Painter)
    Urtem Ragna Asmo

  • I might've missed that, but if those are the results, it's just sad tbh, proving once more the EU community is "special".

  • Weren't the pools done at the start/before it was implemented?

    Pretty curious how the results would be now, after we had kill 1500 event lugbug quests already

    unknown.png?width=1440&height=576

  • Personaly i have just one question :

    About the text on the classic server we are sure they speak about classic server and not master server? Because if it's for to release a master server and not a classic server it will just be a waste of time
