As most of the MMO players amongst you know, the recently Westernized Aion opens its servers for pre-purchased customers on September 20 (tomorrow!) for North American, Australian and New Zealand players.
It was announced a few days ago that NCSoft had decided to listen to the large Oceanic community and create a server with a GMT+10 timezone, so AU/NZ/SP players could participate in events and endgame raid schedules! The server, Nezekan, is currently available for character selection and will be active on launch.
A couple of members from the local Aion Oceanic community have asked us to spread the word – If you’re an Aussie, choose Nezekan!
Unfortunately, the server list on launch will not list Nezekan as an Oceanic server, due to the previous retail patch being finalized before the final decision regarding the server was made. As a result, new players will see the server marked as a standard “West”, although this will be patched to the new title within 2 weeks.
