    Loli pet faeries are amusing to me. Yet, the combat is pretty classic, limited customization, locked sexes to particular classes. The grind is pretty obvious.  it's only really afloat because of the fairy gimic.

    Each to their own at the end of the day and everybody has a right to express their point of view hopefully in a mature way.   Your response I am afraid to say goes way way beyond the pale with regards to being vitriolic, venomous and just downright offensive, and as such does not warrant the courtesy of a coherent reply off myself or anybody else that decides to comment.

     Yes, I am totally aware of the fact that I wrote that post in a very uncivilized manner, for that I must apologize to those civilized people who took offence to it. The only reason why I would have constructed that post in such an offensive manner is because of anything short of being right down to the point is taken pot shots at and ridiculed by people who might not have the patience to read beyond two lines when their current game of interest comes under heat, the people I am talking about are commonly referred to as fanbois over these forums.

    If you started reading this thread at page 5 and thought the highlight of my post was to imply that every other person who played AIKA was a pedophile, then your point couldnt have been more moot to begin with. I have already commented on how this game might be good for the Realm VS Realm fights (among other things) which is much like the wars in DAoC, the reason why I and a good deal of people I knew in game tried this game for anyway. It wasnt the PRANs and any such BS, most of us did not even know of such things when we went on to try this game out at OB.

    "If there WAS any indication that this game would have.."

    IF there was any description in the ads or on the gamesite that this game was purposefully built with a child like model throwing out sexual content, if these remarks were made by the developers or the publishers, do you think anyone in their right frame of mind would play this game? If they did play it would be only curiosity to see what this sexual content was like or there would be people who would play it for this reason alone. Either way, both can be considered pedophiles, there is no other milder way to put it. Not to mention any game with such a tag would be nailed by activists if they launched in any country, since most have very stringent laws against child pornography. You better learn to read please before jumping to conclusions based on one paragraph alone. Just so you dont start misunderstanding this paragraph, I dont mean to attack you but I politely urge you to read before letting your self righteousness get the better part of you.

    Not once have I implied ONLY pedophiles play AIKA, stop putting words into my mouth. But the poster to whom my post was directed at, constantly and zealously defended anything and everything that showed this game to be tailored to such deviant people that it did beg a thought about what were the reasons he plays this game. Moreover by the terminology of HIS words and not mine does it show his casual stance on the topic concerning this paraphila. You could forever keep trying to decipher my post for whatever I might have implied and much much more of what I never once in a single post intended. But how on earth did you miss out on what the other poster was trying to say in his own words? Who are you trying to fool with this gimmick? I am not attacking you for trying to see what you Want to see, but I only ask you to read the previous four pages and find out at where the personal attacks and name calling begins and by whom it is done and the generalization of tagging anyone who disagrees with AIKA being anything less than a wholemeal family game to being a prude. You might wanna read up a bit before starting to play the role of a defender of forum chastity or somesuch. Otherwise your post seems too self righteous for its own good.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Finally, I came here to post what I did because of not my children going gaga over this game. But because my colleague's ten year old son asked him to help him a new online game because he was dying a lot there. When my colleague had a look at what was going on, he was shocked to find his son running around with a naked priest, without any armour on. So mobs had the higher hand in deciding who lives through a normal mob fight. Reason why he had taken off her armour, the starter ones, was because he liked the way the priest looked without anything on. And yes, the game he was playing wasnt some sleazebag M tagged timewaster, but AIKA.

    Its not like my colleague's son is a trouble child or got any personality issues, he is just an ordinary 10 year old boy who spends a little bit of time playing games before heading to bed. But the shock to have found him behaving in such a way without even realizing that he is being drawn into something totally out of his age bracket is awful. How did his son come to know what lay underneath the armour? I dont know. Why did the boy take a liking to the semi naked priest character, I dont know that either. But the fact that this game got such a massive load of sexual innuendos enough to make a normal 10 year old behave in such a manner was what made me post about it on this forum.

    I played this game for less than a month after Gpotato's OB started; I did not care enough to post about it back then when I quit. But recently when my collegue expressed his concern over his son and this game did I come and post about my personal experience while playing this game and not any lies or stories to make this game look bad. And after receiving a good bit of ridicule by people blind enough not to see the innuendos on one end of the moral spectrum and then people who try to shun my determined opinion calling it immature or vile without trying to read up on what it takes to make a person resort to stop beating the dead horse on saying the same thing over and over again on the other end of the spectrum, I have to take my leave here. I made my point and said what I wanted to, so whether anyone wants to attack me for it or ridicule me, I am least concerned. I am done posting in this thread that has gone bad to worse, you can only beat a horse so much.

    As for being harsh about pedophiles; You must be an utter imbecile to go soft on such people. Mere possession of child pornography is enough to get you locked up till your nails rot. And as for this game which is banking on selling subliminal child pornography fluff shouldnt be spared in the least bit from getting the short end if it ever slips up in masking this disguisting load of subliminal BS.

    For the record, yes you can ignore everything sexually intended in this game. Just like me, I dint give two shits for this game after I quit playing it since I wasnt going to take some korean company and its overseas publisher to court over something that cannont be proved in a court of law. This matter is more concerning a moral outlook than something judicial. So I stopped this game with a single post regarding this on the game forum and never looked back at this till posted here.

     But what about when something truly vile and offensive like this game turns your son, brother, relative, friend or anyone you have the least bit of concern about into a failure of a human being, would you still have the same "Dont Look, Dont Tell" attitude? It might affect just one person, among the thousands who have played this game, just like a single grain of sand in a vast desert. But when its someone who you might be personally acquianted to, would you still not care when their life might be ruined? Think about it.

    "If there WAS any indication that this game would have semi naked female child pets, Yes in case your eyes are unable to see that or your mind goes into temporary denial mode let me repeat that I clearly meant semi naked female child pets, people would either steer well clear of this game or pedos (like you?) would nosedive into it just for that one reason alone."

     

    Sorry but you did imply that a) people would steer clear of it and that b) pedos would nosedive into it.  Although it was an unwarranted personal attack on another poster, this statement DOES imply that only pedo's play this game.

     

    Finally as my final reply to you.  You have nothing important to say that is of any relevence to someone who doesn't share your offensive zealotry.  By all means feel free to continue with your foaming at the mouth rants but dont expect anyone to give them any attention or credence.  

    If you dont like the game dont play it.  Its is as simple as that.

    I think he meant, if the game had been marketed as having semi naked female child pets who spout sexual innuendo, then the only people who would have been interested in playing it would have been pedophiles.  And I think that's true.  Everyone else would have steered well clear of Aika.  And the outrage and probably the ban hammer would have come down pretty quickly in many countries.  But the game wasn't marketed that way.  And, as many have pointed out, it's even difficult to get the innuendo spouting pran.  And so lots of perfectly ordinary people play, and the game has no rating at all.  

     

    There's only one reason I'm not raising a fuss to get an Adult Only rating slapped on this game and to get the sexy teen pran completely removed from the game.  Sadly, the type of people in my country I would need to speak with about Aika are not to be trusted with the ban hammer.  They are mostly rightwing Christians, and they would love to be able to ban any game, for anyone, for any reason.  It is because of these zealots who wish to dictate what is wrong and what is right for adults to see and do that your game is safe from the likes of me.

    I am convinced there is only one way to eliminate these grave evils, namely through the establishment of a socialist economy, accompanied by an educational system which would be oriented toward social goals.

    You guys are amusing. I personally didn't like the gameplay, which is why I quit. But the pedo thing is just hysterical. I mean hell, there's half naked orc kids runnin around in the barrens in WoW. Seriously though, the pran is a damn fairy, It's the largest fairy in any game or movie that I've seen, but what ever. The sexual innuendo part comes in only after the fairy hits teenage(listen to teens talk, they talk like adults). The fairy version talks like a 5  yr old, the child version talks like a 11 yr old, the teen version talks like a damn teen. More amusing is that in RL I have a 5 foot nothin' Vietnamese American friend(girl) who's 31, but she looks like she's 13. That school girl costume she wore 3 years ago def made me feel like a pedo though lol

     

    To the guy who's colleague has a 10 yr old boy: There's less clothing on the non geared female characters in WoW, EQ, D&D and even Guild wars as examples. I thought the priest's underwear was conservative in comparison, if not nice in it's own right as it was more than just panties and a bra. Hell that priest had more clothing naked than Cheetara in thundercats lol.

    for real.. dude has serious issues and needs to take a break from gaming for a while. Seems like every game I try has someone streaking around a town in their underwear, convos in chat far worse than anything one of these fairies would say, and old farts that play as very young looking females, among other things. Guy really needs to talk to his colleague if it bothers him so much. It is after all his colleague's kid, not his... or talk to a politician, I'm sure he could find one somewhere in favor of more censorship.

    Anyways, to get back on topic, Aika was fun. I left when it started feeling like a grind. Of course I don't pvp much and that's where Aika is supposed to shine. The pran pet did keep me into the game for a while. Had nothing to do with sex either, what was cool was having a fairy pet that has attitude changes according to how you treat it, can't think of another mmo that has a similar pet growth system. For an Asian mmo, Aika ran pretty smooth, had decent english translation, and was easy to get into.

  • Well from reading some of the more intersting post, I can definatly tell this game needs more Nipple luv, I mean come one, maybe we can tie bows to them or something, I am not opposed to little leashes maybe, then again we could just as well have all the men running arround nude as well, that would better suite me, I dont understand wny people have such a hard time with the human form, we have all seen it, we all have it, to some degree or another, so why not embrace it.  Perversion is one thing, seeing things as they are is another.  Get over yourselves, maybe if you where so worried about teaching everone that its something to be ashamed of we would be better off....

    Oh yes the game, have to say I love it, great graphics, its got some balancing  issues and game mechanics that are in need of tweeks but .... what do you expect, its not even a year old.

  • sorrysoldoutsorrysoldout TokyoPosts: 14Member

    yes, the game isn't even a year old. embrace the human form! :))

    Gender lock = fail.. Point blank and simple.. It's an old concept that not even most newer F2P's follow anymore and now that we are in an age where the F2P market is increasingly being blended in with the P2P quality, Gender locks are simply unacceptable.. It's a lazy way to avoid having to make 2 sets of armors (M,F) and forcing people to run around as a scantly clad female (while tasteful to your average campus bachelor) is  a pretty severe case of "lacking customization".

    I think it is to reduce lag since they are boasting the 1000vs1000.

  • DarkerxxDarkerxx davidPosts: 17Member

    imho, the game needs more bewbs.  just for the lulz.

  • adiktusadiktus Frankfort, INPosts: 128Member

    Eh? The crusader and the dual gunners already have those. But seriously though, I actually like characters who look normal. Not with those oversized you-know-what. And I also want realistic kind of armor. The one which really covers the body. I mean an armor which covers only a few parts wouldn't realistically give the protection that its stat states, right? Good thing the priest has good sets of armor.

    the dual gunner is a bit too over the top..but sexy still

    You clearly don't understand the reasons for having gender locks....  You do know that this game boasts 1000 vs. 1000 RvR, right?  They do the gender locks to decrease the lag.  Obviously not every MMO should do this.  But I don't play Aika just to play another average F2P mmo.  I play Aika for large scale PvP, and because the game does so while running VERY smooth.  If I want customization, and character appearance, there's other games for that....  But to me, good PvP > character customization.

    Couldn't agree more. I'm one of those who don't care about gender lock. It's more on the gameplay, not the character's looks, gender, or whatnot.

    Just as an asides, logged into global over the weekend just to see how the game was progressing (left a while ago out of boredom), and the place was dead.

    I suspect that the few commenters on were high levels in it for the pvp, but there were no calls for Ursula parties or any of the other lower dungeons.

    Is this how it is now or did I just hit a blip?

    I totally agree with you. Warriors gets a kick ass armor while dual gunner gets a skimpy armor that shows her assests. If you come think about it, maybe it's the dual gunners secret weapon. To be able to seduce other characters so they'll let her win. :))))
