Pictured to the right is Chris “Kinslon” Hager, the new producer for Aion West. He was previously an associate producer when Aion launched and has been with NCSoft West since 2005. We, at Aion Life, congratulate Chris on his new appointment and wish he keeps Aion going even stronger in this new year. He had this to say about his promotion (source):
“I’m really excited about Aion and the direction for the upcoming year. Last year was a massive undertaking getting Aion launched, and this year we are really going to focus on making sure we are communicating effectively with the community, giving players the best experience possible, and are looking forward to some exciting new things coming up this year with updates and events.”

There have been questions about what happened to the previous producer – Brian Knox. His departure was never talked about in public. Seems that Brian left in November to an unannounced company to become a senior producer (according to his linkedin page). Brian was one of the major driving forces behind the Aion launch hype machine (along with Lani) and the last thing he had to say to the Aion population he partook in making was:
“Welcome to the team @aion_tamat !!” (his last Tweet on Twitter).
There is speculation that the severed hand Chris Hager is holding in the above picture might have something to do with Brian’s “disappearance”. Neither of them were available for comment :P.
