Eye on Community 11/19/2010

Greetings Daevas,

What a busy and exciting week!

This week we announced the When Worlds Collide Contest winners. We received many wonderful machinimas, and it was not easy to narrow your great submissions down to our favorite six. If you have not watched the winners' machinimas, we encourage you to check them out below. We are sure you will enjoy them as much as we did. Congratulations to the winners, again!

The notable news of this week was the release of Aion 2.1 on the North American and European servers. Join the fun by downloading this free update if you haven't done so, and enjoy the new increased drop rates!

Finally, we announced yesterday that Double Experience and 99% Off Soul Healing Weekends are back during December. Start stocking up on food and drinks to make sure that you have everything ready to take advantage of those weekends during your own personal Aion marathons.

We have teamed up again with our partners at Alienware Arena to bring you the last in a series of mini-events on the North American Aion Servers. This coming weekend marks the last event, the Assault on Balaurea Level Up Weekend!

Topic of the Week

Aion 2.1 has changed the way that you experience your favorite game thanks to this update's significant increase in drop rates. Please give us your thoughts and experiences on how these changes have impacted you as a player and the way that you play Aion.
