We bring you this breaking news from the cluttered desks at Massively headquarters: Aion
has launched! Oh wait, you already knew that
? Darn. Well, maybe you haven't noticed Aion's official website
make-over featuring all kinds of never-before-seen goodies like official forums, character and legion (guild) search, server status/statistics, Abyss control, and player rankings.
The new look is clean, bright, and lightweight. NCsoft
have updated their Powerwiki
to include a number of player guides and lore articles (still no crafting info though). The official forums
showcase the latest discussion on news, community, servers, classes, and technical support. Players can even show off a 3D model of their character
including their latest gear/stats. The server statistics
page is quite cool too, breaking down individual servers by race, class, level range, and the number of legions. Asmodians hold a slight advantage across most servers, but not by much. It seems NCsoft
's strict balance policy
is working decently so far.
