Aion NCsoft response.
The point of the Arena quest is to introduce you to the arenas and it is also an area that is VOLUNTARY. You are able to scout out this area well before entering it as you can see the players in the area. Its an open non-instanced area that ANYONE can enter for any reason. What happens to you there is subject to you and everyone else there.
This is the response to the previous question.
A quest is given to find the owner of a ribbon.
The contact is in a PvP Arena.
During the closed Beta with the cap on levels there were 3-4 players that just set in the Arena. These players were level 20 already.
The quest is given at level 10. So you go to the Arena and then enter. Within seconds the 20s hit you twice and you are back outside the arena.
Going back in, gets you a repeat. The Ranger has a skill called Hide. At level 10 it is the first level of hide and you can walk past PvE with very little chance of discovery. Fighting a 20 you are NOT hidden. Two shots and you are back outside.
8 level 10s and 12s could not take down 1 level 20 before most of the 10s and 12s were kicked out of the Arena.
If we were just going in to play/fight in the arena that would be one thing but most of us were trying to just finish the quest.
You could sometimes make it to the contact but clicking on the contact and making it through the story to complete the quest was almost impossible.
Nearly as impossible as a 10 taking out a 20.
For three 20 level characters to sit in a PvP arena and take out level 10s-12s for no reason does not make sense to me.
There were no rewards other than to say you took out a lower level character.
As you can see their response is "Hey too bad."
Apparently you do not get my point.
It is a word commonly used in online video games, usually used in an MMORPG. Ganking is the process in which a group of charecters gang up on one or more players that do not have a chance to defend themselves, Or when one high level player does the same action to a player way below his or her own level.
Ganking is typically considered very uncool because it usually involves skanky tactics to lay the beatdown on an enemy.
To be killed without mercy on a MMORPG for the sport of it.
This casts the game Aion in a bad light and will turn OFF new players. Do you want the game to be successful or to go the way of Tabula Rasa?
So as a SUGGESTION move the quest OUT of the arena and allow people to play in it as they wish. Having a QUEST is NOT voluntary. Most people like to complete ALL of their tasks.
My response to them and probably the end of it on that forum.
