5.3 release date and client switch

Postby Harboe » 03 Feb 2017 13:34

Hello everyone,

Today, Gameforge has announced that they will be releasing 5.3 on February 8. As promised, Not Aion will update with the retail server that releases the update first, which is therefore Gameforge. That also means we will be officially switching to the Gameforge Aion client as the "official" client for Not Aion. You will still be able to use the NCsoft NA Aion client to play here, but after 5.3 is released, you won't be able to connect with it before NA retail also updates to 5.3.

So, I advise all active players who do not currently have the Gameforge Aion client installed to do so now so you are prepared on Wednesday when the patch hits. By giving you this warning almost a week in advance, there will be no excuse and no mercy for those that didn't prepare in time.

I wish you all the best!

Regards,
Harboe

Am not sure if going GF Client will be ok in the long run. Apparently NA is going for a further patch than GF client. GF won't include the Sanctum/Panda BG nor other little stuff. GF decided to split 5.3 into 2 parts, 5.3 and 5.4.
NA is probably releasing 5.3 as a whole with their mentions of the bestiary book (which is for GF part of 5.4) and the battlegrounds and shit like that.
So .. 5.4 is scheduled for April for Gameforge.. while NA might have released full 5.3 by then ^^ ..

I hope GF stays in the front, would be inconvenient to change clients again ^^

None of the content of 5.4 is relevant to us though, so it still makes all the sense in the world to upgrade to 5.3 with GameForge.

I understand the frustration this may cause for players with low amounts of free space on their drives, but as you kinda concluded yourself, we just couldn't allow ourselves to wait that long. Gotta do what's best for Not Aion :)

There is, whether or not Harb feels that it has a place on Not Aion server is the real question.
He seems to be doing a good job at balancing, keeping certain mounts that are to OP, godstones which are way to RNG.
I'm sure Aion will eventually make armor/weapons that are so OP that P.servers wont use them, whether it's 5.3 or not we will know in a couple days.
