Staying in Aion and looking forward to 3.0, but in no big hurry for it right away: need to raise money for housing.

I'd like a good sci-fi MMORPG (non-spreadsheet *coughEVEcough*) to add to my list of games, but SWTOR isn't it. A space game where you spend most of your time on the ground in EQ/WoW type combat, except for a space mini-game... no thanks Star Wars! I'll go back and play some STO when it goes F2P, at least the space combat part.

Now, back to Skyrim! :)

The official forum are full of the same complaints, over and over and over. Yet these points remain unadressed by the devs. That alone will cause the eventual failure of Aion in the western market. There's an overwhelming feeling that NCS just doesn't care about the NA/EU market. Repeated calls for socketing and enchanting changes have been ignored, other than a short cash grab by adding cash shop items. I've played Aion since day 1 of the early release, have 5 level 55's, three of them in full pvp gear, more pve sets than I care to count, but after playing SWTOR for about 15 hours last weekend I honestly can't wait to pull the plug on my Aion sub. There just isn't anything left in Aion that's interesting. 3.0 is too far off to wait for.

See ya on the darkside. :)

Interesting, TBH I didn't noticed that trend by myself, coz from my Aion's legion only maybe 2-3 ppl will leave to join our TOR guild section and around 3-4 will leave to our guild Tera section. Another 2-4 will leave for GW2 so still plenty of ppl to play with in Aion in my legion ;)

About TOR and new MMO - it is always obvious that then something new and shiny is realised ppl massively go to check it out. Only problem / concern is not how many will go to check new game, but how many will come back to game they come from later ;P

Ah and forgot to add - where is damn "edit" of comment? :P

You are saying that many legions / guilds will leave x game and move as whole to y game and whole legion will be just abandoned or disbanded.

In my legion it is little different, we don't move between games (like all players just stopping playing x game and start playing another), we simple open new game section and old section is still active and recruit new members. Thanks to that if Aion player want to check SWTOR or TERA or GW2 they can simple go to x game section (which recruit its own members dedicated for x game) and old Aion legion still will be there coz it won't be abandoned. Only reason to abandon section would be that literally NOBODY would be active there, but since they still recruit new ppl it happen rarely ;)

I played Aion A LOT, had a decked out sin with full abyss gear, and I can absolutely see TOR hurting Aion pretty bad. Aion is so fubared for melees without extendables. SWTOR seems to be great for melees, no out of range garbage, and every class has abilities to level the playing field like ability to break CC/snares once every 2 mins so even if you go up against a class that is a hard class for your class to fight, at least every 2 mins you have a way to counter.

PVP in TOR is a lot of fun.

"friends to hang out with,"
you just said you loged in and no one was online.

What do you think will happen when TOR comes out ?

yeah, everyone is playing Bf 3 / Mw3 and Skyrim to fill in the gap to then play TOR. They left Aion ages ago.

Besides, RNG proved to be a sub killer.

Player numbers are decreasing on Thor, too. I'm in one of the biggest legions on the server and we lose at least a dozen players per month.

Oh, the last three Aion players on Something Awful (one of the biggest gaming comunities) decided to quit the game today:

If noone plays a game on Something Awful, then the game is dead or soon to be dead.
