Eye on Community 06.04.2010

Greetings Daevas,

This week we released our first major update for Aion, which was met with a lot of excitement and positive feedback. We're extremely proud of the update, which sets the stage for the upcoming Aion®: Assault on Balaurea™ expansion scheduled to be released in the fall of this year. This recent update and the future expansion were designed to complement one another, so there's still plenty to look forward to in the coming months.

With that said, we're curious to know what you think about 1.9, and that's our Topic of the Week.
