Content language and comments moderation

June 25th, 2013 No comments

Just a couple things I think need to be clarified after some of the recent moderated comments in this website:

  • Posters with fake email address are very likely to be flagged as spam and removed.
  • Comments in a language other than English will be also removed, if you want to reply on the case of the french GM please do so in English.

Gold Pack serves no purpose

June 21st, 2013 3 comments

Back a year ago when Hackforge acquired the European Aion userbase, they said something like “gold pack will prevent bots and goldsellers etc”, implying the system would prevent that and also provide the support staff for it and a better customer service. The GP costs 10 euro/month ($13).

I see our money is put to good use preventing botters and goldselling, and not just inflating their income with this bullshit model, the worst in the entire history of Aion publishers: pay-to-win + required subscription + botting + goldselling + no GM staff + no customer service.

In-game surveys, US NC vs Hackforge

June 13th, 2013 5 comments


Spams users with in-game surveys to direct them to their cash shop, most times without any special event or bonus, just a reminder that they can buy stuff at the shop. This while the European version managed by hackforge has a subscription fee (through gold pack, 10 euro), is Pay-2-win, allows hackers and botters, has nothing you could call customer service, GMs who play the game abusing their powers, their staff keeps threatening and banning users in the forums for no good reasons and behave like a dictatorship built by their abusive practices, showing a complete lack of respect towards the players who pay for their wages.

NA Aion:

Sometimes gives a survey to remind players about the Atlas feature, which is free, through which they can claim lots of useful and free rewards like manastones, dyes, enchant stones, some beginner pvp jewels:
At the same time, they are comepletely free, no hidden subscription, great support, polite and kind mods and customer support staff who treat players as people.

Something goes wrong with the servers, reboot, some bug etc, what do they do?

Hackforge: one or more of the following:

  • Deny any issues
  • Blame it on the players
  • Ignore it
  • Threat and ban users who complain in the forums
  • Give absolutely no reward
  • Take no responsibility
  • Find any worthless and ridiculous excuse why it happened


NA Aion:

Polite message from the staff and a little reward

If you’d like to donate for ARM but can’t afford rl money, you can also send me kinah in-game to the character “Hikari” in the EU server Telemachus (Elyos).
If you are in the US, I play also a char there, in Tiamat (Elyos), you can send kinah to char “Armdonate“.

Many users asked me for this, so here it is, I’ll post a patch in a few days with this.

It works for American, European (English) and Russian clients. If you play Korean/Chinese/Japanese and want your client supported as well, please contact me as I will need some info about your Aion files for that.

German/French clients won’t be supported, switch to English please.

Small update – Pando “Media Booster”

May 29th, 2013 1 comment
  • Small patch with some small bug fixes
  • Added a check on start-up for US Aion’s “Pando Media Booster”. This program is required by their launcher whenever there is a patch to the client, and stays installed after the update, stealing bandwidth from players’ computers without their knowledge. ARM will now always check for this on start up and give a warning to the unaware players.

Needless to say, you should uninstall this after every update, through control panel, programs and features, locate “Pando..” and uninstall.
