Eye on Community 05.14.2010

Greetings Daevas,

It's been a busy week here at NCSOFT as we've been finalizing all the 1.9 release information. We understand how eager you are to play this update first hand. Next week, we will release an extensive letter explaining where we're at in the process, in addition to an announcement that will affect every single Aion player.

Have a great weekend, Daevas. We'll see you next week!
