Aika Online 3

Roughly a decade ago, I was intrigued by the promise of Aika Online, an MMORPG that promised giant 1000 v. 1000 PvP battles as its primary drawing card. The trailers looked pretty badass, showing up as they did a few ticks before games like Rift or Guild Wars 2 made showing a hundred-plus players on screen at once a regular occurance. Hey, it was 2011, we were all much more easily drawn in by fancy trailers back then.

Suffice it to say, the title didn't exactly set the world on fire. Me, I struggled with its lack of an invert Y-axis feature for about two hours before giving up. Others apparently lasted longer, which led to the surprising news last week that Aika Online would be shutting down. The declaration itself isn't surprising; it's the fact that Aika was apparently still operating that was.

The final day of T3Fun's Aika server will be September 15. Until then, you can enjoy several events for bonus quests, rewards, and XP, but you can no longer purchase currency. More details, such as they are, can be found on the Aika Online website.

The trailer advertises the game as 1000 v 1000 PvP, but I don't know if the game ever had that many players, even on launch.

Such an approach can spell the death of a game right from the start. That's why I think it would be much better if a game focuses on PvE and leveling experience first and PvP as small-scale arenas and battlegrounds with 10 vs 10 people so all content is accessible no matter how many players a game has.
