PTS 1.9 Game Update 07:00 a.m. PDT, May 25, 2010

We are bringing the Aion Public Test Servers down at 07:00 a.m. PDT today, May 25, 2010 for maintenance.

The PTS servers will during this maintenance be patched to version 1.9, and we estimate this process to take around 3 hours.

You can already download the patch in your NCSOFT Launcher by double-clicking the AionPTS entry. It should automatically detect that a patch is available and attempt to download it. If you experience issues or have questions, head on over to the official PTS forums!

See you there!

Important: Please keep in mind that the Aion Public Tester Servers are meant for testing new patches and game additions, and in that they are not suitable for main characters.

Eye on Community 05.21.2010

Greetings Daevas,

It's been an exciting week here at NCSOFT! Many of you have probably already seen the letter from our producer, Chris "Kinslon" Hager. In the letter, Chris gets down to business releasing the live date for v1.9, a general timeframe for 2.0, and brief tidbits about our plans for server transfers and server merges. If you haven't yet read it, I'd encourage you to do so!

For those of you playing on the PTS, you've probably noticed that we've begun to make sections of 1.9 available for incremental patching. Many of you have asked us why we've begun to release pieces of the patch in the PTS, and the answer is simple: your convenience. Because of the sheer size of this update, we wanted to make it easy for our players to download the update. We plan to use the same patching strategy on the live servers, and you can expect to see that begin sometime next week.


Suthran Divine Fortress Siege Interview

The Divine Fortress was conquered by the Elyos on Suthran (a French server) on Saturday April 24, 2010. After two hours of fierce battle, the Elyos army defeated the Balaur, and Suthran completed this achievement, becoming the first server in the West to do so. Arathaur, our French community manager, sat down with the main raid leaders to learn more about the strategy they used and their reactions when Ereshkigal's Claw was slain. Those interviewed here (and their respective Legions) are Forga (Origine), Falkynn (Origine), Ansea (Origine), Madacik (Millenium), Lolaa (Option), Nagora (BabyBoyZ), and Selket (Midgard).


Double Experience Weekend Valediction

Greetings Daevas,

When we announced that we were going to begin double experience weekends back in December, we mentioned that doing so was a temporary solution for an issue that we had plans to solve in the long term. With the 1.9 update hitting the live servers on June 2, we feel we can increase the rarity of these events. It's important to point out that double experience weekends are not disappearing completely; we still plan to run these event weekends, though less frequently going forward.
