Aion Massive Ban for Good Morning

ban_hammer

Over the last week Aion team has been working on a list – who was naughty or nice. Ban Hammer Claus just came to town. Nearly 16,000 accounts have been removed from the game. If your account was banned, please read the following FAQ.

1. Why was I banned?

There could be many reasons your account was closed. If you did not receive notification of your violation via e-mail please create a support ticket and the violation will be explained to you. Please note that if your account was closed for the use of 3rd party software (botting) or participating in RMT (gold buying/selling) the evidence for the account closure was gathered over several weeks. It may be completely unrelated to what your character was doing right when your account was closed.

The big gaming LAN party is being held in Sweden right now and NCSoft is representing in full. Aion_Ayase is there to promote Aion to the crowds, along with the Swedish fan community members that are enjoying the PvP tournaments. There is a 3v3 tournament and a FFA tournament going on and finals will be hosted on Saturday. If you are visiting by any chance, you will be able to find Tutty, since they are handing out pink squishable pigs to innocent bystanders :). If you get a hold of one – we want pictures!

BTW, First FFA brawl was won by the aiononline.se community members (congrats) and they won some great swag from Razor and SteelSeries.

The full Aion agenda at Dreamhack can be found here.

Aion news digest

Since we haven’t been posting for a few days (some sweet family affairs to take care of) here’s a compilation of the most important happenings in the Aion world (community and official alike).

The problem that removed the Right Click Block function from the game has been fixed. You can block your favorite kinah spammers once again (hooray).

Lobnite Cream Pasta is created in real life (what is that?) by the Aion community team. Full article with images can be found here.

The biggest official news is, of course, the banning of another 26000 confirmed bot accounts. Is that close to 50k banned in a week? If these numbers are correct, we can than assume that 5-10% of all accounts were bots, which is mind boggling. No wonder the community was pissed.
