Default Make a Server for Europeans

Hello there,
after contacting NCSoft support about this:
- http://forums.na.aiononline.com/na/s...ad.php?t=77902

I'm making this post.

I know there is Gameforge, but i do know also that Gameforge is ruining the game, setting lots of limitations (Even for "Veteran" players).

So that's why i'm asking here:
- Please NCSoft make a Server for European players, or simply make Dredgion/Siege time a little bit comfortable for Europeans player too.

Thanks in advance for any answer about this,
dovah-

I was wondering the same thing.
The Gameforge model is not what I expected when I heard that Aion EU will be free to play :/ I was so happy to play again my char but then I read about the features... even if you are veteran, 118 hours of CD to make an instance again is ridiculous really (it means 5 days)... and I've paid for 2 years...
Anyway, a server for European players would be the best, or if possibile it would be great to increase dredgions/sieges per day maybe (dredgions with longer cd, so players always online can't farm it XD).
Hope the staff will consider these suggestions to let foreigners enjoy the real Aion as it really is :)

Thanks!

It's highly unlikely until 3.0. Making new servers after closing an Oceanic time zone one is probably not going to happen.

Though for 3.0 due the influx of new players a new server will likely be opened.

Thank you for your answer!
I know that there will be new servers, but the is if NCWest plans on making at least 1 server with different siege and dredgion times, to be more comfortable for European players!

I've contacted NCWest support, and they told me to add a topic in the section fo the forum, so I did it!

And now, i'm awaiting for some official news about that :)

I can send this request up through the chain of command, but I don't *think* we can do this. Gameforge has the exclusive rights to publish Aion in the EU territory currently. I understand that some people want to play on the NA servers, as opposed to playing on the Gameforge servers. However, we have a legal agreement with Gameforge about the EU service.

We will have to look into whether having a EU timed server is or is not allowed within this agreement.

Yes, I am aware that L2 currently has servers timed for EU. Their agreement is with an entirely different company and cannot be used to determine whether the Aion agreement allows this or not.

Thank you Nyx!
It's already a good point, to know that NC staff is aware of this problem.

Anyway, having an EU timed server will probably be not possible (as you said) but having a server timed to be a little bit more comfortable for EU players may be possible (like instead of 6h difference, something like 3h or 2h from GMT)

Its just an hint!

Again, thank you Nyx!
Will wait for some update on this, in the future :P

The EU servers are in CET(GMT+1), so can't you create a server that's on GMT+0. If there are to much EU players joining NA Aion. Will NC try and break the contract with NC and buy back the rights for EU English servers?
Gameforge ruined Aion, only reason to stay is my friends I met in legion.
Better option just buy Gameforge, rename it into NC. Sell all junk games and keep to good ones.

Gameforge wants to translate Aion into British, doesn't this make it a diffrent game?
Til now EU Aion was in US English, doens't changing it make it a diffrent product? NC offers it in US English so doesn't it give bothe companies the rights to publish it within the EU? Both offer the game diffrently, also GF Aion isn't totaly free like NC Aion. So that also makes it diffrent product.
There are Europian Union rules as well, if two companies want to offer a product and want to compete on price. They are allowed to do so. Not sure if it applies for games.
