3...2...1... Oh, Here Is What We Are Doing

Greetings!

As we draw closer to tomorrow I wanted to give everyone a brief update on the progress of our live version. We are excited to announce that we will be serving out the final update for you to patch within the next few hours. You will be able to use this version for both our Preselection and our Head Start. We are very excited with our final product and think that you will be as well! Below are the release notes for the patch you will see later today:

- Aion now features all three languages French, German and English. To select your language simply right click on Aion within your launcher and go to Properties->Language Options. Please select which languages you wish to download and which you wish Aion to display.

- After analyzing our open beta test results Aion will not feature GameGuard at launch. We will however continue to pursue ways to effectively utilize GameGuard within Aion in the future. Right now we're focused on providing players with the best possible Aion experience.

- The level cap is now level 50 (previously 45).

- Players will be able to reserve 2 character names during Preselection and create 8 characters in total once Head Start begins and beyond.

- Channels will be set to 10 instances for the beginning 2 zones of each faction. Please note that these will be lowered as characters progress and spread throughout Atreia.

NO GAMEGUARD = WIN.
Perhaps I'll learn how to speak French while kicking crepes? (U c whut I did thar? xD Vous voyez que j'ai fait lĂ ? )
10 Channels = Also Win! No overcrowded starting zones!

Hot waffles with strawberry syrup today has turned out to be an awesome day! I'm getting more and more excited for launch! How about you guys? All systems go? Any questions, comments, or concerns before they hit the shiny red button?

  1. Yup. I can't wait....Two days to kill. I have been trying to spice up my blog a little bit, and thinking about somehow adding forums so I can be an official fansite. I don't know anything about web programming, but man I saw this web design site that made me drool all over myself. If I only had a couple grand to throw away to have them build my site.

  3. My concern is that they haven't fixed some networking issues at their data center. Their link with pccwbtn on p4-3-c0-ncdc-pub is dropping 3% - 5% of all packets flowing through it even without active players. I'm worried about another round of lag issues causing problems at launch :(
