simply put pvp in Aion is almost dead. you get almost no pvp until level 50+ and even then it's sparse. in order to curb the rampant low level ganking by twinks NCsoft has completely killed almost all lower and mid level pvp. i totaly agree with this by the way since nobody want's to be ganked by gold wearing twinks all day with absolutely no way to fight back. the Abyss is empty most of the time except for the fort sieges which are a complete lag fest and very lop sided usually. the ones that show up with more people wins.
they have made leveling easier, getting gold is much easier, getting good gear is also easier now. these are all incredibly awesome changes, but what are they gonna do to bring back pvp? is there a future for Aion's pvp? are they gonna tweek rifting further?
if you ask me rifting is not the way to go, instead it's time they implement good old instanced pvp (battle grounds) that cap the ammount of players per side. in these battle grounds the AP gain and loss would be very very small. this game absolutely needs this and i think many many more people would play this game with fair and even battle grounds.
