Eye on Community 09.10.23

Slynthia, Chanter on [Oceanic]Nezekan, asks:

"With more people getting closer to 50, and more people daily being involved in PvP, the claims of client instability in mass PvP seem to be rising. What plans are there to tackle this, in particular in regards to the higher end raids, where the numbers are likely to be quite high once people start hitting the level cap?"

Most claims of client instability stem from more or less the same issue, the dreaded "Crysystem.dll error". Over the last week we worked closely with our community and our fansites in order to help us get closer to a solution. We asked the administration of each site to help us gather helpful information, such as the IP address and time of report for those in their communities who had contacted our tech support team about this issue. Thanks to your feedback and the assistance of our great network of fansites, were able to submit a long list of data to our QA team.

The error is a confirmed bug and we have been working with the development team in Seoul to pinpoint the cause. A fix is in the works but the underlying cause is very complex. The bug requires a lot of work and testing before a permanent band-aid can be applied on top of it. The development team is investigating the matter and are testing a number of short and long term solutions, including better display options to the Aion client as well as system and memory optimizations.

We will make sure to keep you updated and will let you know as our potential solutions are tested through and ready to be implemented.


October Aion Community Address

It's been a month now since Aion opened its doors to players in North America and Europe. In that month, the growth of the game's community has signaled Aion's success. We've received an amazing amount of feedback, both positive and negative. We'd like to reiterate that we've been listening. We have been working around the clock toward solutions to the problems many of you have experienced.

You've told us that it's difficult to advance within certain level ranges. To address this issue, we're planning to raise quest experience, in addition to reevaluating the experience rewards characters gain for individual kills. We understand how frustrating it can be to repetitively kill enemies. Our goal is to limit the need to mindlessly "grind."

Legion Spotlight — Dying for Honor

Back before Aion launched we highlighted and interviewed a selection of the game's most exciting upcoming Legions for our Atreian readers. Now that the game has shipped Legions are more important than ever — players are finally able to put in practice what they have for so long planned.

We want to continue the fine tradition of these interviews and decided to approach a German Legion called "Dying for Honor" for a round of questions. Read on!


Hello! You have spent quite a bit of time at the top of the Kromede rank charts (German Server). Please tell use about yourselves, where people may find you and a bit of your Legion's history.
