What’s the deal with forgetting there are two factions in this game?
It’s said that “we take race balance seriously” and yet we run into the same theme time and time again where you can barely tell there is a second race due to the lack an advertised asmo on display and all the new skins “conceal your asmo fur!”
New players are quietly being led to roll elyos, because the players who might come and play an asmo don’t get to see many attractive representations of the race. This contributes to the insane imbalance you find on most of the servers.
Additionally, BCM items are usually modeled by a default (uninteresting) asmo model (purple skin, red hair? we all know those are not pleasing colors - we took art class!)
Talk to your Asmos players. There are AMAZING Asmo character designs everywhere you look if you wander around Panda/Endgame resting areas.
Please stop hiding your asmos. When you DO use one, don’t hide their fur and eyes. Don’t use an offputting model. Stop acting like the race characteristics like mane are something to be “hidden” - You are alienating a percentage of your player base and preventing future players from helping balance be achieved on the servers.
I am not a conspiracy theorist and I LOVE Aion, but the Powers That Be need to start doing right by the Asmo side of their player base, be it current asmos or FUTURE asmo players.
