New Information from Ayase Calms My Worries!

In my previous post I talked about my unease with Liv‘s interview and with microtransactions.  Luckily, a reader pointed out a post by Ayase on the Aion Source forums that clears up my misunderstanding of Liv’s interview:

Aion is and will remain a subscription-based game. The “micro-transactions” I know have been discussed so far only involve lesser additional services, rendering “micro-transaction” a fairly erroneous word to describe it. Overall I think we’re looking at a quite conventional subscription system, but as the reply in the interview states we aren’t at a stage in planning yet where we can tell you exactly what we’ll have. Rest assured that it wouldn’t make sense to anyone to have a game which requires both micro-transactions and a subscription fee to be played decently.”

This is good to hear and although it does not completely rule out micro-transactions it does lessen my worry quite a bit.  Thanks Ayase!
