Community Coordinator Introduction

Greetings Daevas!

We're happy to announce that we've added a new member to the Aion community team. Please give a warm welcome to our new North American community coordinator, Katherine "Trine" Field.

Katherine brings a breadth of experience to our team. She has worked with community and with QA, as well as developed in-game events. She is an avid Aion player, having played over 1,200 hours in Aion since launch, and has spent time with both Asmodian and Elyos characters. She has played nearly every class in the game, crafted through expert levels, and enjoys rifting and siege warfare. Some of her all time favorite games outside of Aion are Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead, Fallout 3, and GTA4.

Greetings, allies!

Three small, yet very meaningful, letters have characterized the past week: P, T, and S.

Aion's two Western public test servers went live yesterday, one for the EU and one for NA. Both will be used to test versions of Aion a little bit before they're released to the live servers. The public test servers are still running the same version as our other live servers are at the moment, but we'll let you know when this changes. The experience rates are drastically increased from those you might be used to, and leveling up should be a breeze. Make sure toget past the first three levels, since that's when you'll start seeing the difference. Head on over to our public test server forums for more info!

Well met, folks!

We hope you had a great past week with Aion and that you're eager to jump into the fray that is another double XP weekend!

Martin "Amboss" Rabl, German community manager, decided to part ways with NCSOFT and explore new pastures. Martin has been a hard-working and serious employee who always put in long hours to get the job done during his time working on Aion and before that, City of Heroes. Not only did he contribute to the Community Team as a passionate person who always went above and beyond for the players, but also in being a great friend and awesome teammate.

Greetings Daevas,

If you saw the second "Ask Kinslon" interview, you know that we are bringing update 1.9 to the live servers in May. Many of you have been asking what takes us so long to bring these patches to our other territories. It's a good question, and one that we answer in our question of the week.

Question of the Week

Yukina of Telemachus asked:

"Many of us are wondering why it takes a few months to receive new patches. Could you explain the westernization process of patches like 1.9 to us?"

Greetings Daevas,

You've probably noticed that we've had a busy week with the launch of our new forums and the release of the first article in the "Ask Kinslon" 1.9 interview series. If you haven't already had the chance, check out our new forums, and tell us what you think. Now it's time for our weekly question from the community!

Question of the Week

Deshy from Telemachus asks:

"Why was the option to post comments on our character profile/Aion live status removed, and will it come back in some way?"

Question of the Week

NeeHi of [ENG] Perento asks:

"Coming from a long D&D background, I'd like to know if there is an officially recognized unofficial RP server? Or whether there are any plans to do so?"

Good question, NeeHi. Before launching Aion a broad array of polls were held across the many Aion communities that had formed around the game. These polls served the purpose of indicating where certain player groups had decided to play after launch. A list was eventually devised that summarized the choices of roleplaying and individual language communities.

Question of the Week

Slashy of Kromede asked:

"I just got a notification that the server is shutting down in 60 seconds. Can't you let us know about it earlier when you do maintenance?"

Whenever we plan maintenance, our goal is to tell the players about it at least a day in advance. Sometimes, however, urgent maintenance is needed, and it's only possible to give a couple of hours' notice (or less). We try hard to avoid giving players these shorter notification windows. Occasionally, a server has to be shut down and restarted immediately. This is when you encounter the infamous 60 seconds notification message in the game.
