Any idea what the monthly fee will be?

 

The standard $15.

Trying to decide what class to roll, and I have to say Templar looks very tempting right now.

 

I have never seen such an epic game video :shock:

 

 

 

Yeah, it's an ability the Templar class has. It has like an hour long cooldown though.

 

Also, judging by the video (or .gif or whatever) it has great graphics, on par with WoW. Any idea what the monthly fee will be?

 

 

 

The graphics are actually somewhat better than WoW. I was getting a constant 60+ FPS with every knob turned up all the way. Granted my computer's fairly old, but still.


I was going to eat hot dogs for dinner tonight. I think I will settle for cereal.

My comp is a Windows XP, but I know nothing of computers. I don't even remember when my dad bought it.

Ah. You might want to get a new computer then that could run this if you're interested in playing.

I don't see why an XP computer couldn't run this game flawlessly, provided it meets the specs.

It's from 2005 :thumbdown: Plus the graphics card is a piece of [cabbage]. What are the specs, anyway?

In other news my guild has already made a reputation for ourselves in the game by trolling the Aionsource forums. People taking games far too seriously never disappoint.

Hehe goons.

 

 

 

I'm not sure what I'll do for a guild yet to be honest. As always if I could get enough people I would love to make my own guild, try and build a reputation, but I don't know yet. I'll figure it out when we get closer to release.

A vast majority of western Aion players don't know that there's an additional system implemented in the game beside Aggro/Threat system.

 

 

 

It is called Hate-listing. It is hard to explain, because devs didn't really give any info to players about that sytem (beside its core description) or how it works.

 

 

 

Basically, every single monster has a special list which contains the top 30-40 players that monster thinks is the biggest 'threat' of him based on previous encounters.

 

 

 

If someone's on his list, it is more likely that the monster gets aggressive towards that specific player the next time he's around.

 

 

 

Beside the amount of aggro/threat players generated during previous encounters, every type of monster/boss has different things that would make them hate certain players more.

 

 

 

Some examples of things that could generate hate:

 

- specific type of armor

 

- specific type of class

 

- specifictype of skills used against him (ranged, elemental, etc)

 

- level range

 

etc.

 

 

 

So in Aion, mobs are even more unique by having their own hate-list. Players need to know their enemy better, they need to know what things a given monster dislike and hates more and groups have to plan their stategy accordingly.

Sounds pretty interesting. I'm looking forward to this game. <3

Interesting.

 

 

 

I'm pretty excited. The other day some guy posted an offer to people who would be willing to moderate/help with his Aion fansite. He has the basic site set up (http://www.onlineaion.com) and has an idea on what he wants to do to move forward. Pretty much we're going to try and become a major fansite for Aion, the guy who set it up decrypted the quest database so we'll be able to have quest guides on the site and such.

 

 

 

Anyways my role is pretty much to be both a moderator and I am going to re design the webpage to make it more professional looking. I'm still waiting on what he kind of wants, but it's an exciting prospect for me. What makes it really nice is that me and the other guy who are helping out are both going to get free Aion copies from the owner, and when the site (hopefully) hit's a good amount of viewers we will be viewed as co-owners and given a share of the websites revenue. So pretty awesome, and at the very least I get to get a free copy of Aion and some great exposure for webdesign.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In other news Aion is quite a big game already in asia. Acording to the latest MMOData charts Aion is at 3.5 million subscribers in Asia alone right now.

Considering it hasn't even released to the west yet or Japan (and I understand japan has had a very succesful open beta so far, with 160,000 opened player accounts and 46,000 users online at once. [1]

 

 

 

 

 

Needless to say Aion is proving to be a pretty strong game.

Nice graph. (and lol @ Lineage 1 and 2.) And yeah just looking at the graph makes you think, Aion could be bigger than WoW with ease, expecting it has a commited fanbase like WoW does, and good support etc.


I dont need a siggy no moar.

I just got the regular edition of the game (pre-ordered from direct2drive last night). Next beta event is in a few days, and it's 1-25 so we'll be able to see what the abyss looks like! (hopefully, I'll need to do lvl 13-25 :P)

I'm kinda disappointed that I probably won't see The Abyss this time. 1-25, isn't that supposed to take ages? Plus it's over a weekend, and... ugh... can't believe I'm actually thinking of skipping going out over a video game. I'm so damaged.

 

 

 

In the meantime...

I got my pre order for the collectors edition. Unfortunately they ran out of beta keys, so no beta for me :(

 

 

 

I'm getting so psyched for this.
