Aeria had a very successful launch of Grand Fantasia this month, which I'm happy to see because so far it's been a great game. Part of that is the fact that the GM staff continue to run events to keep the playerbase intereted and take their mind off the grind at times.
I was away for all last week and I was a bit irked to return home and find that a new rewards system on DOMO gave new players that reached level 10 a level 11 pet of their choice, which was a big blow to players who had invested time and money into getting their own pets after so long and (despite these pets being N/T) may actually hurt the economy of both servers.
GS activity on DOMO, despite losing a few key sages in the past month and a half, has improved a lot on the Sapphire side as well. However, I have yet to see a GF sage. I can't say much cause I haven't had the time to play much of it yet but I certainly hope they're around more than I think they are.
Otherwise, merry Christmas to everyone at Aeria, and also big props to DOMO GMs TankGirl and Shan for coming into work today to run a few special events on Christmas Day. (I'm not sure if Erock was here as well, but props to him if he was)
