's July community address
mentions the upcoming 2.0 patch
, of course, but that's not what grabbed the attention of the fans.
The recent server merge
created some predictable imbalances, and the Aion
team has made a few decisions on how to begin rectifying them. NCsoft
's Lance Stites
, who penned this month's address, tells fans that server transfers have been temporarily disabled while the devs sort things out: "All the associated
Aion teams are working on a solution to allow character transfers to resume with appropriate limits in place to prevent radically unbalanced servers
Furthermore, race creation is "selectively" limited on each server, in the hopes that it will help balance things out. "For instance, if you're playing on a predominantly Elyos server, Asmodian creation will be the only race available for new characters,
" says Stites.
The situation is only temporary, and hopefully only a first step in sorting things out on the newly-consolidated Aion
servers. Take a look at the Aion
