AVA Moving - Not Closing!

Attention Soldiers,

Interesting news for you; saddening news for myself and the team.
Aeria Games will no longer be publishing AVA in Europe and North America.

When is this happening?
We are currently finalizing the schedule and will inform you as soon as we have the final dates.
Accounts will be frozen shortly before the transfer. From this date onwards no progress or purchases will be carried forward. We do not know the exact date yet but notify you as soon as this is clearer.
At this point we do not know when the new version will open, but it will presumably be very, very shortly after the Aeria version closes. Possibly even same day.

Why is this happening?
Redduck has chosen to transfer the AVA license to a new partner. Unfortunately for us this is the nature of license agreements and, as our contract has already expired, they were well in their rights to withdraw the license and issue it elsewhere.
Please be aware, this decision is completely out of the hands of Aeria Games. We do not own AVA and have no control outside of a contract as to what happens with it.

What about my AP?
It will not be transferred to the new publisher so spend it quick. We’ll have some great (and very nice) sales over the next weeks to help you clear out all of your AP before you transfer.

What about our accounts and gear?
Your accounts will not be lost. It’s very important to remember that this is a migration and not a shutdown. Everything your account contains at the time of the freeze will remain there.
ALL purchased items, both in-game AND via the Aeria Games Webmall, will be migrated with your accounts up until the freeze date (exact date to come). From this date onwards your accounts will not change.

Will I keep all my gear?
Yes. Everything you buy will remain in your account.

What do we have to do?
For now you do not need to do anything. We will take care of handling the database content to the new publisher. They will handle migrating that information into their own database and connecting it to the the new game and their servers.
If you need to take some action later, we will inform you of all the necessary steps in advance.

What if we have issues during migration?
Unfortunately, we will no longer be able to assist you with any issues from the moment the migration begins. We will keep the support channel open for a few weeks after this date but all messages will simply be directed to the new publisher. Should you have any issues after the migration you will need to contact the new publisher. We will provide you with their contact before the migration begins.

Is there anything I can do to change this?
No. This is contractual change that we cannot alter. The decision to remove themselves from the contract was Redduck’s to make. The decision of whom to sell the license onto is also theirs.

-Black rose

-The black rose is considered an 'Achievement item', and so, it is not tradeable.
-The signup page which you have to go to uses HTTP rather than HTTPS, which means that the password and email which you enter into it are not encrypted, and so, anyone else using the same wireless network as you can read both your password and email as they are being sent. Use a fake email (You don't need to verify your email) and a simple password which you will never use for any service to counter this, as all you need to type in on the login screen is the username and password you chose.
-You have to give the game administrator privileges every time you start it. This means that the game has full access to your computer: It can install new programs, delete system files, or install malware or rootkits, etc. Even if the developers don't program such things, any vulnerability in this buggy game would allow a hacker unlimited access to your computer.
-The game UI is horribly designed. It seems like the developers were testing how many buttons they can cram onto a single screen as possible without having tooltips on any of them.
-You are not allowed to create a character with more than 10 letters or numbers in the name, and almost every combination is already taken, so you will need to keyboard mash until you get a combination which has not been used.
-Pay to win

This game is honestly garbage. Most of the community at this point is only here for the black rose, and other than that, the only people who play this are the P2W members of the community who still want their bang for their buck, and people who are looking for a fun game to play but stumbled apon this garbgage instead. Oh, and did i mention that it installs a keylogger to track EVERY. SINGLE. THING. YOU. TYPE. to supposedly "Track cheaters". Well I guess cheating is also known as my privacy as i dont want a third party to collect my information for a game that i personally don't even play. And the worst part about the keylogger is that it doesn't uninstall along with the game, so you have to manually dig through your files and search for the very thing that is driving you mad. So if you don't want your privacy invaded, and you can live without a TF2 knife reskin, save yourself and don't download this game.

I've been playing this game since ijji owned the franchise... 1500 hours, the game itself was fun... until Aeria Games scammed me. After not logging in for 6 months, my account that had a list of guns, was reactivated just to find the entire inventory empty... i made a ticket and thought maybe they're was another process to this... apparently aeria says there is no record of me owning anything of a sort... they left me 30k, and the standard starting m4a1, the standard sv98, and an mp5... Everything i had bought with real money, and everything i took the time to acquired was now lost forever, as staff told me... they even told me my account was banned for "inactivity" and had "unused ap". I will never spend another dollar on this game, and will discourage others from playing this game till the day i die.

AVA Had the most interesting and skill based weapon control + recoil mechanics of any shooter in the genre. And then Aeria came along and ♥♥♥♥ed everything over.

Forget the potential of wasting money on this game, or the fact that weapons have made this game incredibly P2W since the para nerf; the customer service alone is reason enough reason that this game has gone to utter ♥♥♥♥. The game rewards weapons that are just point and spray instead of requiring any real skill to use.

After taking a break from the game for many months, I log in to find out that my STEAM ID has been banned from the servers, when I asked Aeria why they refused to give me any information, they just copy and pasted nonsense about sending them the last 5 transaction ID's plus 6 other rediculous questions that I couldn't possibly answer to get my account back.

0/10 will not Aeria ever again.

I first downloaded this game 3 years ago and played the crap out of it.
But then an update came out that made it extremely pay-to-win, so I deleted it.
Then recently I went to download it again for nostalgia and noticed this in the store page description.
"FREE Guns: Over 90 weapons purchasable with in-game currency. Now you can fight, not pay, for your license to kill. "
Sure enough, the update that made me uninstall was revoked and the game is playable again.

The weapons that cost real money aren't really gamebreaking. They're either just easier to use (no recoil) or gimmicky (an M1 Garand with iron sights). I use an AK-12 ingame primarily, which did not require me to spend any real money, and I don't get completely destroyed by people using paid guns.

I definitely recommend the game in it's revived state, even if the community can be a bit salty at times.
