Aion: Anniversary Events, PvP Update & Reactivation

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,619MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

NCSoft and the Aion team have revealed a plethora of new information about the game in celebration of its second anniversary.

Beginning today, players can participate in the Ascension Festival and take part in special developer live events.

Former Aion players can also jump back into the game thanks to the Reactivation Event. The event gives players a chance to check out all of the changes in Aion in its first two years. Reactivation kicks off on September 22nd at 5:00 pm PST and runs through 5:00 pm on October 2nd.

With regard to the upcoming PvP update, developers said:

The first, Arena of Discipline, will allow for one-on-one deathmatch battles between like-minded Daevas; while the second, Arena of Chaos, supports free-for-all bouts on a grand scale for the indiscriminate Daeva looking for glory! Additional content in 2.7 will consist of a large-scale, 48-person instanced boss fight in Padmarashka’s Cave for those seeking an epic boss encounter as well as new armour and weapon sets.

    Hmmm 2.7 live on October 19th.
    That means next K-Aion Upgrade should be coming to PTR within the next few weeks either.

    Got to play a bit this afternoon.  I had fun and they threw a lot of free stuff at me, but I'm not ready to immeadiately forgive and forget.  NcSoft has earned an opportunity to convince me they're ready to pay attention to their western subs, but they are going to have to put in some work.

    Regardless of how it turns out, I'm having fun right now and I appreciate the opportunity to revisit a game that I think has tremenedous potential.

    What's the old saying... "burn me once shame on you; burn me twice shame on me."  Too many games coming out to give NC Soft another chance... at any game, and yes that includes GW2.  When I wrote NCSoft CS about 20 months ago and told them I was thinking of quitting Aion and why (botting, lack of content, no end game ) ... I basically got a "don't let the door hit you the ass."  That won't be forgotten and they won't "earn" another chance from me. So I'm good waiting for something new from someone else.
