Today an announcement was made that finally reveals more of what is planned for NA Aion and how it is different from EU Aion. It turns out that the margin of difference is quite large and in a somewhat disastrous first step NCsoft West has chosen to give people Tahabata weapons for spending a certain amount of money in the cash shop from day 1 C.U.B.E. orders. While these weapons are level 50 and not 60, in the game of Aion they are still viable to use as a weapon for some combines and especially as a weapon for level 50 twinks. Remember that higher level weapons are not always better weapons in Aion. A FAQ for this pre-order benefit has been created for those ready to buy now.
This shows a very clear pay to play strategy from day one of the NA Aion free to play release as it degrades the work that players have put into playing the game for that particular series of weapons. It does make one wonder how much like a perfect world NCsoft West is trying to make Aion look.
What do you think?
