Aion Classic Launches June 23rd

Is It A Final Milk Attempt?

As we known for sometime now, Aion Classic was in the works, but just announced earlier, Aion Classic will be officially launched June 23rd.

With that, we already see, two foundation packs for this Free to Play title.

Aion is a game published under NCSoft, a publisher who is very much known for it’s heavily Pay 2 Win content. Just take a look at Linage II, Blade and Soul and the Original Aion games. Especially Lineage and Blade and Soul. God, I loved these two games but It took everything just to stay on top of the curve due to being a free to play player.

While Aion is considered Pay For Convenience as opposed to Pay to Win to some of the community, it is still a monetization method the MMORPG community does not want to see in their western releases.

Let’s take a look at the founder packs

What does each pack actually give?

Siel’s Aura (Subscription)

Siel’s Aura is an account status that unlocks the full Aion Classic experience for your account. It is available in various durations and in standalone and subscription formats, which will be purchasable through the Black Cloud Marketplace. This is an account-wide buff which will benefit all your characters. After the subscription ends, your account will be converted to a “Trial account” after thus losing the benefits outlined below.

This practically means, you can play for 1 hour before the game is pretty much limited making this “subscription essential”.

What is so P2W about subscription?

You advertise a Free to Play game yet you limit F2P progress is the definition of Pay 2 Win.

Kinah Currency

Let’s see kinah Currency. If it is the same as Aion, Kinah is the main currency in Aion. It is used by both factions and is the currency used to purchased NPC items, services and transportation between areas and region.

Normally, you would gain Kinah throughout the game such as

  • Completing Quests
  • Killing NPCs
  • Vendoring trash

Abyss Points

Abyss Points refers to the total accumulated points a player has to calculate the player’s Abyss Rank in game. You can earn and loose Abyss points, the most common way is through PVP. Abyss Points is necessary as it depends on your rank to be able to use the certain Merchants in order to purchase weapons, armor and consumables So, Aion Classic is advertising as a “Free to Play” Title but it is reality, it is a Subscription based model. There is already a a big fat lie to the community by the NCSoft team.

So a question for the community?

Despite how great Aion was in back in the days, are you going to play or give it a go?

I will, but I can’t see myself playing for long.
