16,000 Aion accounts facing the banhammer

NCSoft has announced a massive ban of Aion accounts across their US and EU servers, the result being 16,000 gold merchants, spammers, botters, and other users behind some not-so-nice activities losing their wings if you will. A post on the official forums says a list has been worked on over the last week and that, staying in theme with the quickly-approaching holiday season, “Ban Hammer Claus just came to town.”

Ban Hammer Claus has been known to treat some of those he visits unfairly from time to time though, so should you happen to be among the wronged ones, a short FAQ in the same post should be of some assistance.
