Ask us anything A.V.A./Aeria related!

The answers!
Hey folks,

below you will find the answers to all questions you shot us in the Ask us anything thread. We summarized some of the questions to not be too repetitive and hope we didn't forget about anything. If so, feel free to ask those questions here and we will give our best to answer them in a timely manner.

General Questions

Are there any plans on A.V.A. being Available in my language/region (Portugal, South America, Asian Countries etc.)?
 
Of course there are plans but we cannot give any details on that nor give you a guarantee that it will ever happen. For now we need to concentrate to bring AVA to a more healthy state to make it enjoyable for our whole community again. As soon as we accomplished this, we can start thinking about expanding it.  

Will we get a match channel on the European Server?
 
Yes, the match channel is basically right around the corner and we’re very looking forward to introduce it to you finally!  

After the addition of the Clanpage, will there be a player ranking in which we can search for players and see a profile of their accounts?
 
That is something that we started to work on lately. Since this is not a gamebreaking issue though, it is not on our high priority list. We hope for your understanding, the feature will come but it is definitely not the “next big thing” we have in stock for you.  

Will the Squad Management be added to the Clanpage?
 
Yes, just as the ranking it is not our highest priority but we already started working on the development of this feature.  

Will the in game recording be fixed?
 
This should work in the meantime. In case you have any issues, be sure to update your DirectX, Graphics Card drivers and Sound drivers and try again. If that won’t help, please contact our Customer Support Team via Ticket  

Will there be more ACTIVE game masters?
 
We are right now in the process of shifting priorities to give you guys the support and GM presence needed. If you are speaking German, French or Spanish, be sure to visit our new Forums as we have GameMasters in those languages there. For everybody else, the US GameMasters will be glad to participate in the daily life here a bit more active in the future.  

Will Alliance of Valiant arms be sold to another publisher?
 
We get the drift behind your question, but would you really think that it would be healthy for the game to make the same transition again? We know not everything went totally smooth lately, but we’re in the transition of changing that. Give us some more time and then we’re sure you will change your mind.  


Content related questions (guns, maps, modes etc.)

We want Map XYZ back/why don’t we get the same Maps as KAVA or JAVA?
 
This is a question we cannot fully answer at this very moment. We are in constant communication with the Developers and will shoot you an update as soon as we have a fixed release-schedule for next year.  

I liked the original Cold Case map, perhaps add it back as "Cold Case indoor”?
 
Cool idea, we forwarded it to the developers!  

Will we ever catch up to other versions of AVA? (This includes all questions about ‘Will we get Weapon XYZ/Upgrade kits etc.)
 
Yes, as soon as we settled the release of the new Antihacking Solution (which will be very soon), we will start working with RedDuck and Neowiz to bring you so-called ‘combined patches’. They will consist of content, combined of several content patches together. As SnowShovel already announced in one of his threads, the first of those combined patches is to come (hopefully) this month.  

Will there be more events with gifts for players, especially non-cashers?
 
We cannot promise anything in particular except that we will introduce way more events step by step. One Event that the community very much liked for example was the Tribes: Ascend giveaway, furthermore of course we want to introduce more forum-based and playtime events where you guys can have fun while winning free stuff.  

Will we ever get AVA Sports like in the Korean version?
 
Same answer as previously, as soon as we did some catching up with the release schedule you will get the same content as the Korean version, yes.  

When is the name-change going to be implemented again?
 
Soon, right now there are still some issues caused by the server-transition but we are working on implementing it again.  

Will you lower the caps count in the cap shop like in JAVA and KAVA?
 
As soon as we have everything stable and running again, this is an option.  

Will there be more badges?
 
If the Korean version has more badges we will get them as well over time. We are also up for suggestions and will forward any piece of reasonable feedback to the Developers.  


Community & Competition

Are there plans in action for a USA/Canadian tournament? If so will there be a competent host?
 
Yes sir! Our friends from the ESL are planning to spread into the US/Canadian community in the near future. Furthermore we are in contact with the UCG who are doing PUGs and other great events on a regular basis. Of course if you know other projects doing similar things, we will be happy to support them as well. Be sure to send us a message or forward us their information via our GS-Team.  

Are there any chances of an official AeriaGames tournament? If not, will there be any international tournaments that teams from our version can take part in (kind of like AIC from last year)?
 
Right now we are concentrating on supporting external partners and their tournament and as mentioned above, there’s a lot coming up on that part. Also regarding AIC-/IeSF-like events, we will have a great announcement for you soon.  

How do you intend on making Alliance of Valiant Arms more competitive?
 
Read the above two answers to find out what we have in the pipeline right now. Of course we will not stop at this point but just like everything else at the moment we have to approach this topic step by step.
Rest assured when we tell you that we are very interested in the competitive community as competition is what makes AVA really shine and also what our community enjoys the most. Also our whole team is very eager to stack up on competition so in next year’s IeSF our teams can give the Koreans a really hard time Wink.  

Why did you guys take priority on the euro hackers & gun adders when it doesn't affect the competitive scene? #1 priority should be the aim-botters and wall-hackers, yet you guys decide to do something about the euro hackers. Could you comment on that?
 
To uphold a competitive community you have to have your business model in a working condition, otherwise you will not have the funds to support first-mentioned. Of course that doesn’t mean that we did not do anything against aim-botters and wall-hackers, we just did not communicate that clearly on it, which might have been a mistake when we look at the reactions to this.
The first and foremost consequence for the aim-botters and wall-hackers will of course be the new anti-hacking tool, which we have been testing over the course of several weeks and which will be rolled out very soon. So stay tuned, we’re not leaving out on those guys and the force of our ban-hammers will hit them at least as hard as all the other hacking scum out there.  

Lastly, do you intend on making Alliance of Valiant arms bigger than any other FREE TO PLAY first person shooter out there in America & Europe? And if so, how?
 
Of course we want AVA to grow and become an even bigger threat to the other F2P-shooters out there. Since AVA is a high quality game that has an awesome competitive side and a community that is very passionate about the game we want to concentrate on that as much as possible. The priorities are right now to get it back into a competitive state with measures like the clanpage, new content, new antihacking-system. As soon as that is assured we will be able to take the momentum and get a lot more players into the game and grow it even more.  


Hacking issues

Will there be a new Anti-Cheat in the near future?
 
Yes, there will be one in the very near future. Stay tuned and keep an eye on our announcements!  

The cheats associated with cheat engine have become more of a problem than anything else, is there a plan to make cheat engine not be able to hook onto AVA?
 
Yes, that is one of our main purposes in the new antihacking tool that will be announced soon.  

When are you going to ban all of the cheaters?
 
We are already banning countless hackers every day and we expect this number to grow by a large chunk with the introduction of our new antihacking tool.  

Will there be more severe punishments than just having their accounts taken away? Ex. Hardware/IP-banning for a time periods/permanent.
 
Our upcoming Antihacking Tool will give us a broad variety of tools and functions we can use to get rid of unwanted guests. Please understand that we do not want to disclose all of those right away for obvious reasons but rest assured that we will be in a way better position to take more appropriate actions than to just ban single accounts.  

If there really will be a new anti-cheat, how often will it update?
 
We will update it as often as needed to keep AVA as clean as possible.  


Miscellaneous

Do you love me?
 
Of course!  

When will the first person spectator mode return? It's been removed from the game for about 11 months now.
 
The 1st person spectator mode has been originally removed for the reason of causing lags to all players on the servers. The guys from RedDuck are right now investigating in that issue and as soon as they have found a reliable solution for it, there will be a 1st person spectator mode (re)implemented into the game.  

What happened to IJJI?
 
Basically AeriaGames acquired IJJI and integrated their games step by step. You can find an announcement under the following link: http://www.aeriagames.com/forums/en/viewtopic.php?t=1450869  

Can you give us more capsule vouchers?
 
As you noticed, we introduced a lot of Events where you can win and earn yourself some capsule vouchers in the meantime, so the answer is YES Wink. If you have any feedback to the Events we had over the last few weeks, feel free to share it on the forums.
