Recipe for Disaster—Lobnite Cream Pasta

Has your mouth ever watered while browsing through the hundreds of cooking recipes in Aion? Ours certainly have! Follow this new series of real-life recipe conversions, a series we hope will bring life and a true Aion spirit to each gamer's kitchen.

Sometimes that slice of pizza may just not feel quite right. Sometimes we crave more than a reheated microwave pirogue. The recipes in our Recipe for Disaster series are more sophisticated than a grilled cheese sandwich, but if one's doing something grand, why not do it the Aion way?

November Aion Community Address

Hello everyone,

It's been a busy couple of weeks here since the launch of AionM. The post-launch period of many games means that you have time for a bit of rest. After an MMO launches however, your job is just beginning.

Recently, we released a lot of information on the sales and success of Aion in respect to Europe and North America, and also globally. We are off to a very, very respectable start.

We are constantly delighted that so many of you purchased and are now playing Aion. Shortly after Aion's launch we experienced longer queue times than we would have liked. We reacted by working immediately on a server transfer system. However, the server transfer we began to implement was a rush job, and we are not happy with the result. As it currently stands, transferring characters is a manual process that would shift a significant percentage of our customer service staff members' focus from issues like real money transfers/trading (RMT) and botting that we feel should take priority.

Bom on [DE]Balder asks:

"I've been crashing less since the 1.5.1 patch. Did you guys intentionally fix the Crysystem.dll problem?"

Yes, the crash issues during fortress sieges and other intensive activities were fixed with the patch we applied to the servers on Wednesday. In case you haven't read the final patch notes, take a look at the very last paragraph where the stability improvements are listed. We received this fix shortly before our scheduled maintenance and decided to include it together with the patch. We are glad that it works well for you.

Greetings Daevas,

We will be restarting all NA servers at 6:45pm CST (more) to implement a hotfix that should remedy some of the problems that stem from this mornings update. After we determine server stability, we will be re-opening all servers. Our current estimated downtime is no longer than 15 minutes. We apologize for any inconveniences this has caused and want to thank you for your continued patience.
