Character Creation Disabled on Ten Servers

We are temporarily disabling the creation of new characters on the following servers:

[Oceanic] Nezekan
[East] Marchutan
[West] Ariel
[East] Israphel
[East] Lumiel
[West] Siel
[East] Zikel
[East] Azphel
[East] Triniel
[West] Vaizel

This is intended to provide a population distribution to some of our newer servers and to allow us to ban certain accounts engaged in prohibited activities. We expect to re-enable character creation within the next 24 hours and hope this will improve your overall game experience.

Please note that this adjustment will have no negative impact or extended interruption of service to the logged-in communities of these servers. The servers may disconnect you very briefly, but you should be able to log in again right away.

Addressing Gold Spam

While Executive Producer Lance Stites took time to address some of the most prominent issues raised in the Aion community last week, we want to specifically address another issue that is a top priority for the team here at NCSOFT: in-game real money trading (RMT) advertisement, sometimes referred to as "gold spamming." These activities are something we're actively combating right now. They are also something you can help us with, and something that we are committed to addressing continually in the future.


Lance Stites Talks About the State of Aion Today

Greetings,

A lot has happened since I last addressed our community. We've launched our long awaited product Aion and have been pleased and challenged with keeping up with the massive player demand.

There's no doubt that we've done some things very well with Aion: the product is polished and incredibly fun. We managed to deploy to North America and Europe within the same week and have experienced strong demand. As most of you are aware, this has come at a cost in the form of queue times. This is by far our biggest challenge and has led to some frustration as players wait to enter their server of choice.


Aion Update 1.5.0.8 - 2009-09-30

Aion will during the next maintenance period receive a new update addressing a couple of common game and localization issues. We are right now focusing on getting rid of critical game bugs and polishing our French and German versions of the game. Keep reporting issues and bugs as you encounter them through the appropriate channels, and we will track them down and squash them as quickly as possible.

The patch is available for download via the NCSOFT Launcher, and the patch size is at 5.3 MB. Head on over to the Aion PowerWiki if you want to get the complete rundown of improvements and fixes.

[East]Meslamtaeda Joins the Family

A very welcome addition to our North American server family cleared all testing phases and evaluation procedures just moments ago. Our East Coast servers have been some of the more popular ones to date and [East]Meslamtaeda intends to hold the torch high and provide even more options to current and future East Coast players alike.

The name 'Meslamtaeda' comes from one of the feared Dragon Lords, one that has many times been called the 'Lord of Death and Fear'.

Enjoy!
