For a brief moment in time, Aion players received what could have been the best gift ever as a siege reward.
Today, the Azphel server had an impressive kinah party as players who found themselves 34,000,000,000,000 in kinah wealthier. Havoc broke out as players spent their ill gotten gains, mailed around coin, and awaited the inevitable roll back to rectify a clear server glitch. Tamat, the Aion Community Manager, made this statement:
Earlier today we began to receive reports that a small number of players on the Azphel server had received over 30 trillion Kinah as part of a reward glitch. Since that time, weve brought down the Azphel server and have been working diligently to identify how to restore economic stability. Weve made the decision to rollback the Azphel server data to 6:00am CST this morning and will continue to monitor all servers for related anomalies.
Its important to understand that we saw the rollback as a last option and made every effort to avoid doing so. Were currently performing the rollback and anticipate the server will be back online at 10:00pm CST. At that point, all character progression on Azphel will be restored to its state as of this morning.
As an apology for the downtime, well be rewarding everyone on the Azphel server with five Lodas Amulets later this week. Its our goal at NCsoft to provide the best possible service to our customers. Our apologies for the downtime and as always, thank you for your continued patience.
