Greetings Adventurers!

As we approach the Holiday season, we thought that it would be good to see what we have accomplished so far and to give you a preview of what we have coming up!

Earlier this month, we released the Auroria continent, and with it sieges. The early phases of the first sieges are now underway! Siege tokens went on the Auction House on Wednesday and guilds from all over the game get to bid for the right to siege castles in Heedmar and Nuimari and it's up to the owners of the castles to defend their territory with their best players and gear. It's exciting to watch the play-by-play and the potential power shifts in Auroria.

With the launch of Auroria, and shortly after, we have had some challenges. We worked closely with XLGAMES to resolve these bugs and connection issues; and we are happy to say that these bugs are almost behind us. An update is going out tonight and tomorrow morning that will resolve the last of the issues and APEX will be turned back on as soon as those are live.

With everything that has been going on, it's very exciting to see over two million players interacting with each other - trading, selling, cooperating, stealing and killing! In recent weeks we’ve seen more trade, more crafting, more ocean combat and more creative ways to help and hurt your fellow adventurers. We're looking forward to everyone enjoying the content that we have live now - and are planning on adding in weeks to come.

Speaking of content to come, we've got great updates coming in November and December. We also have a few more updates for the Marketplace in November - including the Farm Hauler upgrade ticket and a new mount that does somersaults.

In Early December, we’ll be rolling out our new Public Test Server (PTS) where you can check out all of the upcoming content before it launches on live. On PTS you’ll have the opportunity to auto-level up if you choose, try out the new content, and check out the new items on the Marketplace (with a special PTS-only pool of credits). We want you to let us know what you think! Your feedback on what you see on PTS – both positive and negative – will be incredibly helpful for both us and XLGAMES as we share new content with you.

With the PTS launch, you’ll get a preview of our December update. With that update, we'll bring out the Red Dragon world boss and open the Sea of Drowned Love Dungeon. We'll also turn on a couple of holiday-themed events and goodies that will be available to players - including reindeer ears, holiday themed skins for your Farm Wagons and candy cane weapons! Keep an eye on the forums and on the website (http://www.archeagegame.com) for more details on the upcoming content.

Looking past the holidays, we are targeting early next year to bring you a level cap increase. This update will allow you to level up to level 55 and gain access to all of the new skills. This update will also include a new zone with housing areas, the Library dungeon and, of course, all of the associated crafting!

There’s so much to do today and some awesome additions coming! Thank you all for your incredible passion for ArcheAge! We look forward to seeing what you do with the new content to come!

- Victoria

The game is dieing and Trion tries to get as much cash of it as possible before its dead and rush the stuff knowing it`ll have low lifespan. Library and lvl 55 are WAY to early litterally less than 3 month after release. But it seems Trion is content with it, and max estimated lifespan of the game for them is 5-6 months.

Also nice how the post completely awoided the actual reason the game is dieing - blatant exploiting, screwed up economy and absolute loss of Faith in Trion.

So next year we'll be getting 55 cap and content.

For some people it seems too soon or rushed, but to me it looks like Trion trying to catch up with other AA servers in terms of content updates.

As for December goodies and stuff, I do hope you don't make it too dull (I'm talking about town decorations) and too money-oriented (the best costumes only in RNG boxes) just like what you did with Hallow-tide content.

It is getting harder and harder to keep a passion with the game. every month there is a patron issue my wife lost her status yet our card was charged. Random crashes. Cheaters not at least getting a suspension. There is a lot to enjoy still but the frustration level keep raising have seen friends that left because of the crashing issues. While 55 content might be neat shouldnt some of those issues be worked at more so there will be people left in the game to get to 55?

Hi, in your post earlier you mentioned this:

"We also have a few more updates for the Marketplace in November - including the Farm Hauler upgrade ticket and a new mount that does somersaults."

So I take it that next week is the time where the Farm Hauler will be available?

The PTS will do nothing to help the game unless Trion/XLgames fundamentally change the way they handle feedback.

Player feedback has been ignored since alpha, see: gliders, rumbling trees, halsa, etc. etc. Trion launched the Auroria update knowing that there was a bug with hackshield under the assumption it wouldn't end up being a big deal. The bugs over the last week had all been known about for some time.

The PTS will do nothing to fix these issues without fundamental changes in the way this game is managed.

As @Pollux said, just leave d game mate. If u dont like it just dont post negative comments. Every game has bugs,exploits,bots, many ppl said "plz fix all d bugs and remove all these bots" but after trion did it. as @FireCait or @Scapes said they have done many fixes but ppl just dont notice cause they all crying about a refund....all these posts about ppl asking trion fix d bugs but not even one about saying thank you trion for all ur efforts...is a game after all if u dont enjoy it so just quit and look for something else~ http://kotaku.com/decades-later-someones-discovered-a-new-super-mario-br-1591884544 yeah even this game after 30 years had bugs ^^

you only care about whether players subscribing patron or buy credits. All your replies were towards these 'patron' 'credit purchase'. All other issues, exploiters get unbanned with tons of gold, land grabbing hack etc. - no explanation from trion, no reply like it is not a big issue but cannot purchase patron is like super important? And you guys just release more contents so that players would forget about the mistakes you have made? what a rubbish.

You are clueless. I pity you. Mail.ru AA release was failed as disaster, but its nothing compared to severity of what we expirienced with Trion here. The game IS dead, since cheating and exploiting and bots already ruined an economy and at this point there is no way to ever fix it. Just past week 3 major guilds quit my server (with their farewell topics being deleted from the forums and guild leaders posting it banned from forums) and online overall (one of most active EU servers) seems dead drop. Others asking why they should continue playing the game since there is no good prospects for the future whatsoever. The last card in the sleeve Trion had was lvl55 and they use it now asap trying to keep people playing not understanding that at this moment it will only further ruin the game.

Sure, i can stop whining and quit, so can my guild - and you`d have one less of major pvp guilds on server created for pvp with many others already quite and others quiting since no competition and anything to do.

People were excited for this game, prepared through KR, played at RU AA, beta tested and wished to remain here for years. All futile. I love the game and i`d love it to be main game for YEARS as was stated, but so far its been disaster through disaster. The game could be renamed to betting sim of "Trions Next ♥♥♥♥ Up 2014".

And this Dev update, in face of most major AA crisis so far (which is just an icing on a cake of every previous one really), is but an insult. And to top that, releasing lvl55 update 3-4 months after release and 1-2 months after Auroria opening indicates they have absolutely no clue about the game they publish and will continue doing same mistakes over and over, same as with hasla T3.

If you are casual player that just logs into AA to plant some things and sail around for 10 minutes for fun on F2P account, sure you`ll might have some fun. For all other purposes - the game is dead. Let alone the disaster of headstart, auroria failures at NA, botting, blatant 3rd party hacking and worst than all regions Marketplace policies and game support - the revelation of the gamebreaking economy exploits existing for MONTHS, nominal suspending people with not nearly (but it`s already impossible at this point) fixing impact on economy, rumbling tree, hasla t3 release, resulting population drop because of all above and other stuff i could list for pages - makes the game dead as what it was designed to be and attracted most people and guilds for: competitive sandbox with good economy, pvp and warfare.

At this point no effort they`ll make will really "save" the game, but least they could have tried to save face somehow, but it seems the only thing to expect is what will be the next ♥♥♥♥ up (also its pretty clear after this letter).

The only way to somewhat salvage this wreck would be doing like Final Fantasy XIV - taking it down and relaunching.

So you guys are still staying the course with your 2 month inbetween meaningful content patch schedule even though you are bleeding players are at ridiculously large rate due primarily to your poor decision making skills? Red dragon, forbidden love, and lvl 55 are things that should have been in the game 3 months ago. We are now over a year behind the korean version. Just how much patience do you think people have? So that means, what exactly? 1.7 next july? Are you kidding me?

Maximum facepalm. The game is not intended, not designed, should not be korean version of the game, since it does not exist here for 2 years. Anyone demanding 1.7 content now really has no idea.

The best Archeage playing expirience was pre 1.0. Trion Already launched with worse version, so you could not expirience how game used to be, but even that aside - lots of major problems so far were caused by the fact that the content introduced was NOT designed for young state of the game. You cant just release AA with all content, auroria, lvl 55 and stuff open on day one.

The game is designed as sandbox where servers gradually mature and develop and content is added when servers reach specific level of maturity (in Korea changes were made over long period overtime, in other releases added as server population gears up, gets used to existing content and progression).

For instance the horrible archeum drop rate was bad thing from 1.2 patch that made sense in Korea, but did not here (still was not fixed properly by Trion). Similarly Rumbling Archeum trees were added in Korea to let people catch up and covere the demand for new recipes. Hasla weapons are means for people to catch up with old players that already had their high tier crafted gear. Fishing at state added to the game, was a negative factor too not for the state of economy at that point. And list goes on.

They did right decision (adapted in all AA release) to have Auroria release after period of time so that servers mature. They ♥♥♥♥ed up with hasla, fishing, handling bots and exploits, marketplace etc.

Jake Songs vision for AA is gradual development of the world. In future with more addes territories in Auroria, new races, new sandbox content etc. The keyworld "sandbox" and "gradual". You cant just "patch world to the latest state". It has to "grow" to it.

Now with Auroria added, starts period of sieging. Sieges being pretty much once a month and majority of servers population still running in GHA/quest/illustrous gear, introducing Library (which with lvl55 DRASTICALLY changes economy, class mechanics, pvp and itemization) where there`ll be 2-3 Siege since Auroria max is the definition of "rushing it". But seems they dont learn. Last time community pointed them obvious mistake with releasing Hasla T3, it was ignored totally (despite earlier promises they`ll not do it).

The game is designed to be a developing worlds progressing for years. Their current plan, they`ll probably start merging or shut down servers mid spring or something.

If you want "content", ask them to hire actual stuff and do some proper regular events like other AA publishers do. But guess thats too much for Trion too.

I've been farming all my mats and saving my vocation so I had the 150k... Now I don't need the 150k vocation I've put back? I seriously hope you guys plan on putting the design for a car (same mats and equally as great) on the marketplace if you're not going to do vocation. Two gilda cars is kinda upsetting.

submarines are very complicated, they have torpedos, ICBM`s, and cruise missiles, all those things need to be properly balanced.
Will their be a LCS class anti submarine surface vessel introduced to counter the submarine?
How about a F-117 stealth glider!
Heck lets just go full call of duty and give everyone a machine gun, some grenades and a tank! SWEEEEET!

You have Founders and people who purchased credits who you obviously bait ans switched, you have exploits, pay to win market boxes with TS trees that just ruin the game. Now you want to talk like you have been doing so much and you have 2 million players playing and happy. Hate to break it to you but at least half of those are bots.

this game is going down the tubes and you talk about how exciting the future is?

~ Victoria. I am curious if Trion plans of fixing the real issue. Land.. theres not enough of it, we need 10x what is currently available. Patrons sub specifically to own land. When we find we can't own it because there is none available. We unsub. It's as simple as that.

Level 55 and new dungeons are nice, but how about fixing the real issue which directly effects your companies wallet first?

I've been working hard to get a car and I have all of the materials I need except the design. I should have 150,000 vocation badges within a week. The wait on the Timber Coupe has me concerned, I wonder how long it will really take. Can you guys not just release it and then tweak them later? I don't see why they have to be removed. Any idea on how long I'd have to wait for the coupe?

To be fair, you could say that about most MMOs these days--especially F2P ones.

Personally, I plan to renew my ESO sub tomorrow. It may not be the greatest MMO I've ever played, but it's sub-based, has (essentially) no cash shop and it's getting regular, sizable content updates.

No, you can't. I came from a chinese f2p game, and theres nonstop content all day long. 10 different dungeons, multiple world bosses and raids, daily/weekly/monthly tourneyments.

Its clear archeage is suppose to be a 'make your own content' game but we dont get any tools to do so. Trion sitting on content for half a year isnt helping.

Greetings Adventurers!

As we approach the Holiday season, we thought that it would be good to see what we have accomplished so far and to give you a preview of what we have coming up!

Earlier this month, we released the Auroria continent, and with it sieges. The early phases of the first sieges are now underway! Siege tokens went on the Auction House on Wednesday and guilds from all over the game get to bid for the right to siege castles in Heedmar and Nuimari and it's up to the owners of the castles to defend their territory with their best players and gear. It's exciting to watch the play-by-play and the potential power shifts in Auroria.

With the launch of Auroria, and shortly after, we have had some challenges. We worked closely with XLGAMES to resolve these bugs and connection issues; and we are happy to say that these bugs are almost behind us. An update is going out tonight and tomorrow morning that will resolve the last of the issues and APEX will be turned back on as soon as those are live.

With everything that has been going on, it's very exciting to see over two million players interacting with each other - trading, selling, cooperating, stealing and killing! In recent weeks we’ve seen more trade, more crafting, more ocean combat and more creative ways to help and hurt your fellow adventurers. We're looking forward to everyone enjoying the content that we have live now - and are planning on adding in weeks to come.

Speaking of content to come, we've got great updates coming in November and December. We also have a few more updates for the Marketplace in November - including the Farm Hauler upgrade ticket and a new mount that does somersaults.

In Early December, we’ll be rolling out our new Public Test Server (PTS) where you can check out all of the upcoming content before it launches on live. On PTS you’ll have the opportunity to auto-level up if you choose, try out the new content, and check out the new items on the Marketplace (with a special PTS-only pool of credits). We want you to let us know what you think! Your feedback on what you see on PTS – both positive and negative – will be incredibly helpful for both us and XLGAMES as we share new content with you.

With the PTS launch, you’ll get a preview of our December update. With that update, we'll bring out the Red Dragon world boss and open the Sea of Drowned Love Dungeon. We'll also turn on a couple of holiday-themed events and goodies that will be available to players - including reindeer ears, holiday themed skins for your Farm Wagons and candy cane weapons! Keep an eye on the forums and on the website (http://www.archeagegame.com) for more details on the upcoming content.

Looking past the holidays, we are targeting early next year to bring you a level cap increase. This update will allow you to level up to level 55 and gain access to all of the new skills. This update will also include a new zone with housing areas, the Library dungeon and, of course, all of the associated crafting!

There’s so much to do today and some awesome additions coming! Thank you all for your incredible passion for ArcheAge! We look forward to seeing what you do with the new content to come!

How about a F-117 stealth glider!

Do it like the GW2 updates. Let the "Patch notes" direct to the last big update and add a new post with the small changes from the last patch. Thats an easy system.

I postet something about landplace here: http://forums.archeagegame.com/showthread.php?125504-House-placing-system&p=1178767#post1178767


Update my thoughts about the lack of land now:
Easy to make but big improvement!!!
A garden each player and a house as limit, would help and stop that stupid land selling.
Or maybe each account on each server one land and one house as limit.

Yup, there should have been a land ownership cap per Server. The labor potions mitigate having to spend all that labor/money on taxes, but apparently not enough. There's a simple solution to the land problem, double the tax rate, I bet you see plenty of land open up then and all the land hacks become worthless expenditures ;)

While the community is still toxic, I'll post something positive ("Witch! Kill it!").

The public test server should be a great bridge between developer and player, and gives a solid platform for player feedback and encourages constructive criticism unlike the forums. I look forward to this, and hopefully the community comes together and starts enjoying the game. I know I am.

A very good question indeed. I'm sure the line from XL to Trion is something like "this isn't our top priority for our development team, we'll let you know when it's done", which could be never, or maybe December.

i know you don't reply to anything basicly remotly negative in this forum or anywhere for that matter but i know you do read and even though i am boiling with anger about not just this announcement but all the problems this game allready has had and still has since launch ill try to be as civil as i possibly can in my state!

i haven't played alpha and maybe that is a good thing because i heard it was quite nice back then. i enjoyed the start of this game, it was busy as with every launch, this game was hyped alot by youtubers etc and not a single one of those is still bringing out videos for this game and their last video always had the title 'why i quit AA'.
Back then it wasnt about your screw-ups it was about you turning into a moneygrabbing no effort donedeal company and they all said that in one way or another.

The thing that brings out the worst in this AAcommunity is not the exploits, or the goldspammers, or content or anything gamerelated its your HUGE disrespect for the player community itself and the serious lack of transperency and blatent lying you do to us! Things add up and now every misstep you make no matter how small is put under a microscope!

The 2 million accounts you are talking about are not actual players and you know it! and i don't have to explain how you got that number in the first place! my server, Melisera (EU) goes more quiet every week, alot of people came back when auroria came out but the delay and major screw-up on your part cost you more players then that came back.
Auroria is boring, owning land there is worthless atm since there is not alot over there in order to make it worthwile to have land there in the first place.

And don't even get me started about your banwave that you did and still do where you ban players who have done absolutly nothing wrong but yet you don't care and always send them a link that leads to a customer support which is way undermanned and doesn't seem to have the time to really investigate a case!!!!@!

The open sea used to be exiting and fun, now they are dull and empty, every school of fish has 10+ fishing boats because of your rumbling tree cashgrab and lets not forget about the 500+ people that exploited like hell to regrade their weapons and apex and more! This was reported to you shortly after the game launched and you did nothing with it until the small group that knew about it leaked a post+ video about it and more people started using it and you realised you were losing money.
My problem with this isn't the fact you didn't respond in time, my problem is that you didnt respond to it until you realised you were missing out on extra money!!!

It was said rumbling trees were introduced to make up for the lack of archeum on the market so why was this made a market item instead of a grind item? or a gilda item? Didnt you say that nothing gamebreaking would be in the marketplace that a free player could not obtain or do you defend that by saying it can be bought on the AH from other players?!

You have a great game here, and this is my first experience with your company and i can say it is the worst one so far and you are making SOE look like a charity organisation!
I think the only reason people are still here and logging in is because of the people they play with and the quality and potential of the game itself but the only content you seem to be interested in is the one that makes money, and the content that is free like auroria is so skinny and lean that after being there just a few times i dont like it anymore, other players think the same so they leave it too making it an empty wasteland with just a few grinders trying to get gear, mineral water is pointless apart for the burning trees since the archeum drops are just a blatent insult to us players!

There have been alot of people in this community suggesting you a great deal of good ideas on what to do and how to do it and imo you are ignoring it because it will not make you enough money or because you would actually have to get of your chair to get it to work!
I understand that reading this forum can't be fun for you eighter and it always brings me down reading these forums, even the good games with decent companies have alot of raging kids screaming for candy but in this game i actually agree with them on alot of things!

So here we are 3 months after launch, faith in your company destroyed, a dwindling playerbase and then you make a post of how amazing everything is!
I have only touched the very top of the problems in this post because if i would elaborate further i would hurt the readers eyes! (i probaply allready am)

If ONLY you would be more transperent about your decision or explaining the LACK OF! it would appease alot of us but you refuse or simply ignore as always!
Even your server announcements today on our server of scheduled maintenance didnt arrive until 17 MINUTES before and so did the forumpost in regards to the downtime!
I MEAN WTF!

I will stop writing now because the urge to use the F word in every sentence is becoming to tempting.

I am a very patient man but every man has its limit and you are getting very very close to mine which is impressive!

regards,

a soon to resign if nothing changes PLAYER!

All I really care about is the level 55 cap and content that comes with it. more than 50% of my guild has quit because of Auroria and the many other blunders so new dungeons including Serpentis aren't an option anymore when we can't even muster 10 players for what used to be a 40 player guild raid. I've never seen such a mass exodus from a sinking ship of a video game as this one. You really screwed up big time Trion, and I, including dozens of my semi-active guildmates won't be paying you a dime until you show some competency in managing what should have been a great game. You can cash grab all you like but it won't amount to much when your core is literally boycotting your marketplace.

To start with, you must buff the droprates of archeum trees to make Auroria at least slightly important. Also a suggestion is to enable war in the zone for honor accumulation to make it worth PvPing at. All I do now is gank people in Ynestere and play vanilla content because Auroria is such a disappointment.

there is never a real f2p chinese mmo. You'd have to purchase all those enhancements from cash store in order to gear up/pot to do dungeons, world bosses etc. And some chinese players they don't even care about the gameplay, P2W is always their motto. The frequent content releases = not enough money, we need more. do you want that in AA? lol we are already in a pretty bad situation.

Could you please say us when will the Gazeboo farm ticket be available ? I've been booking a 24x24 plot with my 16x16 since launch and it's kinda annoying now to be still waiting for it. Just add the ticket to the cash shop already :/ ... I have to regularly decline requests asking me to move my land and so it makes bad relationship with my neighbors...

Its clear archeage is suppose to be a 'make your own content' game but we dont get any tools to do so. Trion sitting on content for half a year isnt helping.

Here's why your chinese F2P gets so much stuff. Granted it's a bit long-ish and from 2012 but still relevant for chinese market I think.

The game is dieing and Trion tries to get as much cash of it as possible before its dead and rush the stuff knowing it`ll have low lifespan. Library and lvl 55 are WAY to early litterally less than 3 month after release. But it seems Trion is content with it, and max estimated lifespan of the game for them is 5-6 months.

Also nice how the post completely awoided the actual reason the game is dieing - blatant exploiting, screwed up economy and absolute loss of Faith in Trion.
It's hard for me to reply to not sound like a white knight or carebear or w/e.

I have a simple point: Sure, the game was out in Korea for years now, so it should have less bugs. Seeing that we had that Apex exploit the Koreans either ignored it or didn't realize it (unlikely).
I am Austrian, and we Austrians are kinda: meh, whatever, do what you want and i don't care. This surely is one of the reasons I still enjoy the game.
The 55 cap is something I really am looking forward to. If a student like me could reach 50 in 1 1/2 months, it's not impossible. Simply said, the 55 cap will get me back into a bit of questing and away from the crafting, so I can finally get some labor back.

Tbh, if I would be a publisher, I would do it like Trion (regarding updates). A lot of players are leaving the game, so let's give the game a new update with new mobs, a new cap, etc. Maybe the ones that left come back again and begin to enjoy the game once more.

funny, they introduce stuff that was supposed to come with 1.2, while 1.7 is purely cosmetical patch...

greed always wins:

1: normalizing mounts - make all mounts same speed, basically "dont grind 50k honor for best possible pet, we will nerf it, buy mirage snowlion for ~1400 credits".
2: normalizing costumes - make all costumes worthless "dont craft 50k proficiency costumes that have an impact on your character, we remove the starts, buy cosmetical costumes that we offer for credits"
3: normalizing gliders - nerfing them "dont craft best skill/stat gliders that require 100 glowing prisms, we nerf gliders, buy the ones we offer in cash shop"

We never asked for these changes, you decided it for "our own good" on your own.

50% of this developer update was about marketplace updates. the other 20% about past major issues and the other 30% about content that is coming which is already 1 year old or older in other regions.

You cant fool anyone with your missmangement.


Btw how is Boarderless Windwed mode and interted mouse doing that should come short after release, as a marketplace item maybe ?

The Patron Time issue from this week was resolved yesterday and egregious exploiters are being removed from the game.

Crashes are often highly situational and require individual help, be sure to contact our Support Team for help: http://support.trionworlds.com


This is wrong. The webpage tells my I have 30 days but I have no patron ingame. Unable to pay taxes now, and even worse labor out the window....

People QQing about everything...content comes late ppl QQ ..content come soon people QQ. Hell, people even QQ if patches happen because they lose tradepacks (lol 100gold) ..would you honestly prefer no patches and leave the game like it is?
Maybe a little more "play the game" and less QQ.
There is not a single mmo without problems in the first year. Even wow after 10 years has not enough server capacity to let everyone in and ppl QQ because 7hrs queue.
Tbh i think AA had a very good launch compared to other mmo.
Nothing that happened impacted my game at all..
But it will be always like that..ppl QQ even if they get something awesome for free. (AA is for free...youre not forced to pay anything).

Whiners make me sick and i hope you all leave the game so i can play with people who are actually awesome and not such crybabies.

I think by now we are all familiar with the general difficulties encountered by the majority through the course of this game. If you are here reading this, chances are that those frustrations were not enough to send you packing. So why should you leave now? There is always an opportunity for betterment in anything.

That said, I do recognize that perhaps Trion went about the process a bit incorrectly. First, Beta and Alpha were open at the same time, functioned much like EU and NA do now, instead of being separate versions of the game. Second, there was no in-game bug reporting system. The main reason for an Alpha and Beta version is so that the players can report bugs, but if there is no way for them to easily do that then what point is there in that? There should also be a quick way to post a support ticket from within the game, but that is neither here nor there.

First version of the game should have just stuck with Alpha, and had a very small community of players. Perhaps just the Dev staff and a few other trusted employees. Then, once they ironed out the major bugs that impacted gameplay the most, and perhaps the most obvious and prevalent ones as well, then it would have been time to head into Closed Beta with a larger player base. These players would have been invitees, like they actually did, and their job would be to play and report any bugs they saw via the in-game bug report option. Then the devs would try to fix the bugs as they occur. Only after they had fixed all the bugs the player base had discovered, without creating new ones, would they head into Open Beta. The purpose of Open Beta would be to see if their servers would hold up under the increased load, and if further bugs may in fact appear due to the increased number of users. If more fixes are necessary due to the increased number of players, they could then make the necessary changes before the game ever launched.

My understanding is that Alpha generally lasts a few months, since devs tend to work rather quickly, and Closed Beta tends to last a couple of years. Open Beta, on the other hand, only tends to last a couple of weeks to a month, since by then all they really need to do is iron out a few things, and make sure the servers can handle the load.

Now, for launch. I don't know how other games do it, since I don't pay attention to test servers. I just know that typically games tend to have them. However, the way I would do it is release the test server first, before launching the game at head start, to make sure everything was actually working the way I expected it to. If so, then, and only then, would I go through to launch, and Head Start. I would then put forth all future planned updates on the test server first before going live with them, to make sure they don't create more problems than they fix. However, if a server crashed or something like that, I'd have to fix it somehow either way.

Botters, scammers, language and languages. First, botters which bot by breaking the eula. I would have cracked down on both them, and the gold scammers and spammers from the beginning. I would have made it possible to report a person via an option in the mail they sent to someone, or by right clicking them or their name in chat. That way, if someone sees someone botting or gold scamming/spamming, they can easily and immediately report it. That would help Trion keep track of all such people. And when banning these people, I wouldn't do it on an account by account basis. I'd do it by IP address, email address, and any other information they used to register their account to make sure they can't create a new account. By language I am referring to the filter and the way it seems to filter out the wrong words, as well as the fact that throughout the game I still spot a few misspelled words. Trion should allow for easy reporting of the misspelled words, and fix the profanity filter so that it actually filters out the profanity instead of just every word containing the consecutive letters 'ing'! As for languages, I agree with what some people have said about making different chat channels for different languages. I turned off Nation chat relatively early in my AA lifetime due to it being almost completely French. Later I turned off Faction because I wanted to farm in peace, but that is not really relevant. I think if there were different channels for the more commonly used languages, it might help reduce use of the main channels to those who actually need to use them for something.

As for the game dying, I don't think it is. I agree that a lot of people are leaving. But that does not necessarily mean the game is dying. It does, however, mean that land will be opening up. Trion can still make changes that repair the bugs, get rid of the majority of botters and scammers, and help repair the economy. I agree that no update will immediately repair the economy all at once. Something that broke a little over time has to be fixed a little over time, and the issues with this one were perpetuated by everyone who uses the AH. So it will take a long time before the economy stabilizes, and it is mostly up to us, the players, to see that it actually does so. All Trion can really do to help things is remove botters and scammers, and make sure no unauthorized monies are left anywhere in the game.

Well, that is my two cents/pence. I hope you at least read the first paragraph before deciding to tl;dr! Lol

So trion, will you have actual EVENTS this time and not some ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ cashgrab marketplace hoax again like you did with halloween event?

Since KR and RU had a proper event and quests that gave you all the things you put on the marketplace or in those painfully obvious P2W chests.

I find it funny that a lot of people are saying the game is dying and people are leaving in droves. I am not really seeing that in game. Sure a lot of housing / land is expiring so people can get some land finally, but last night my guild (I am not the guild leader) and I camped some 'stinking elves' in hellswamp and halcyon and ended up liberating a nice fat merchant ship that the reds obviously stole :) There was all sorts of activity on the coast and seas last night - most I've seen in a while. While I am not a PVPer by nature, I find the change of pace from playing farmville (where I spend the bulk of my labor) and attacking the enemy and liberating trade packs very fun. We get on our TS server and chat and kill reds.

The game is dying ??? Not sure either way, but on my server people are still very active and fighting. And more importantly - having fun.. which I believe is why we play these games. I don't play to be the best - I play to have fun. When I stop having fun with my online friends I will find another game like I have before. But with new content coming and more reds to kill and trade packs to liberate I don't see that happening anytime soon.

And for the trolls - I was one of the many who was 'locked out' during the Aurora blitz and missed the entire release. Sure I was mad, but I got over it and am back to having fun. AA isn't perfect but hell, no game is perfect.

The Submarine and Timber Coupe are still undergoing re-balancing. We are expecting to have the Comet Speedster designs available on Mirage Island for Gilda Stars with the December update.

It's good to know that re-balancing means, change it in to a Gilda Star design :^) Here I thought you were going to change some of the "skills" or other properties of the vehicle. How foolish of me!

Just stop making it look so hard. We all know that "undergoing re-balancing" == make 800 Gilda Star design out of it.

But you just want to narrow down the options people have to two 800 Gilda Star designs and have others keep their hopes up that you won't screw them over by changing the Timber Coupe design from requiring 150000 vocation badges to requiring 800 Gilda Stars.
But you and I both know that you will screw them over and you'll screw them over hard. Whomever has been grinding 150000 vocation badges can now go buy bait with them because Timber Coupe will just be changed to require 800 Gilda Stars and for you, that's balancing.

Trino strikes again!

Oh and



blabla...over two million players...blabla

I bet your peak around launch reached 2 million, but it has declined drastically since then but you need to keep up appearances.

I had 150,000 vocation the day after Auroria launch. I'm sitting on almost 170,000k now, and have everything else built for the timber coupe. If Trion removes the timber coupe from the vocation vendor, I simply can't play this game anymore.

The Submarine is not on the list of things that we currently are expecting for December. That said .. we don't have the update finalized yet. We're expecting to get the final details in early December.

Can you let us know if we are ever to expect submarines soon?

As right now it pretty much looks like there is little to no chance of seeing them anytime soon and by that I mean within the next 6 months. I would rather be told now not to expect them rather than continue to keep my mats and discover that a year from now we are still asking the same question.

I have been there and done that in other games that have removed items for rebalancing only to find they are never seen again because of time constraints.

The safe thing to do, really, is err on the side of non-release. If it does not exist in the game, then, even if they can tell you that they plan to introduce it at some point in the future, they cannot realistically tell you when; and there's always the chance that all of their best laid plans to introduce it will fall through and it will never exist at all. So just sticking with and to things that are already available is a good way to prevent such a frustration as you indicated within your statement as having witnessed in other games. If you feel the need to make some kind of preparation for it, then just collect the base materials or funds, and save actually building the items for when you are sure they will be needed. That way, if it never gets released, the base materials and/or funds can always be put towards something else.

[QUOTE=Odic;1183930]

there is never a real f2p chinese mmo. You'd have to purchase all those enhancements from cash store in order to gear up/pot to do dungeons, world bosses etc. And some chinese players they don't even care about the gameplay, P2W is always their motto. The frequent content releases = not enough money, we need more. do you want that in AA? lol we are already in a pretty bad situation.

the chinese game i came from has substaintial 1g+ updates every 2-3 months. You're all just a bunch of complacent racists. What's trion give us? Content they cut from launch every 2 months. This is inexcusable, like day 1 on disk dlc. Actually, that's literally what these 'updates' are. It's all on disk. It has been this entire time. It's translated and ready to go. But trion thinks it's 2001 and they need to keep people around and waste A YEAR OF THEIR TIME in order to milk subscription fees even though subscription fees arent what's making them money! How incompetent can you be to not even appeal to main money making demographic? Just keep shooting yourself, trion. Are you guys unionzed or some nonsense, I don't see how any of you still have your jobs. The success of this game so far has been entirely because of it's niche, almost monopoly like status in the subgenre of sandbox mmo that came after a long dry spell of ♥♥♥♥ty wow clones. It has nothing to do with you or your little normalization changes that a 3 year old can see through. It has nothing to do with you sitting on content and slowly releasing it. You think thats an effective strategy? Is that what you tell your investors when you show them all the money we gave you for believing in this game? You have been the problem since day 1, yet you take all the credit. 2 million people? Not this month. Why? Because every single week in novemeber, every single week, you seriously screwed something up.

I'm sure this post will be the one that finally goes over the line and get moderated but you people are nuts. You have absolutely no idea what you are doing. You think you do, and anyone who's played a mmo before can see your exact train of thought, but it's completely off base for this product. You aren't going to milk this game for 8 more months. You are going to blow your final load on the wagon tickets and then the money is gonna stop. You'll tell the investors that profits are down because people left because of standard holiday quitting bs, but that will be a lie too. They left a long time ago, you simply ran out of hot items to pimp.

Well guys. If you wanted to publish Arch Age then you would've published Arch Age. Running a game isn't easy, You guys spit out demands and complaints like they are your babysitters. They don't take orders like this is fastfood. You complain yet still are playing the game I just don't understand. Don't give me that rage of I love arch age core gameplay and bs like that. Let them develop the game or you take your complaints of there and develop the content you are screaming about don't put down these hard working people for giving you a game you've been waiting for play for awhile now then give them bs about it not coming out perfect. Nothing in life is ever perfect so give Trion time to do some magic to the game, half of you are screaming P2W ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ the game is F2P hell if I published the game it would of not been free to play. You guys are lucky to get to play some High quality game like this and not have to pay up from the start. I understand the ones that paid for the game to be a founder or whatever in all reality you could of waited but instead you paid for what was listed in the founders pack not for supreme control over the game. There are Dos and Donts when running a game but none of us will ever know because none of us are apart of any of these publishers staff these go on, things happen get over it. Hell you don't know if one of the staff members had a dying family member for jesus sake and they had to take a break which maybe made things slow you never know they have lives too. Not up all night on the computer, hell I know they wanted to get alittle something from their loved ones sometime give them a break.

Greetings Adventurers!

As we approach the Holiday season, we thought that it would be good to see what we have accomplished so far and to give you a preview of what we have coming up!

Earlier this month, we released the Auroria continent, and with it sieges. The early phases of the first sieges are now underway! Siege tokens went on the Auction House on Wednesday and guilds from all over the game get to bid for the right to siege castles in Heedmar and Nuimari and it's up to the owners of the castles to defend their territory with their best players and gear. It's exciting to watch the play-by-play and the potential power shifts in Auroria.

With the launch of Auroria, and shortly after, we have had some challenges. We worked closely with XLGAMES to resolve these bugs and connection issues; and we are happy to say that these bugs are almost behind us. An update is going out tonight and tomorrow morning that will resolve the last of the issues and APEX will be turned back on as soon as those are live.

With everything that has been going on, it's very exciting to see over two million players interacting with each other - trading, selling, cooperating, stealing and killing! In recent weeks we’ve seen more trade, more crafting, more ocean combat and more creative ways to help and hurt your fellow adventurers. We're looking forward to everyone enjoying the content that we have live now - and are planning on adding in weeks to come.

Speaking of content to come, we've got great updates coming in November and December. We also have a few more updates for the Marketplace in November - including the Farm Hauler upgrade ticket and a new mount that does somersaults.

In Early December, we’ll be rolling out our new Public Test Server (PTS) where you can check out all of the upcoming content before it launches on live. On PTS you’ll have the opportunity to auto-level up if you choose, try out the new content, and check out the new items on the Marketplace (with a special PTS-only pool of credits). We want you to let us know what you think! Your feedback on what you see on PTS – both positive and negative – will be incredibly helpful for both us and XLGAMES as we share new content with you.

With the PTS launch, you’ll get a preview of our December update. With that update, we'll bring out the Red Dragon world boss and open the Sea of Drowned Love Dungeon. We'll also turn on a couple of holiday-themed events and goodies that will be available to players - including reindeer ears, holiday themed skins for your Farm Wagons and candy cane weapons! Keep an eye on the forums and on the website (http://www.archeagegame.com) for more details on the upcoming content.

Looking past the holidays, we are targeting early next year to bring you a level cap increase. This update will allow you to level up to level 55 and gain access to all of the new skills. This update will also include a new zone with housing areas, the Library dungeon and, of course, all of the associated crafting!

There’s so much to do today and some awesome additions coming! Thank you all for your incredible passion for ArcheAge! We look forward to seeing what you do with the new content to come!

- Victoria

Ok Victoria, here is the thing.

I love that your post is positive, I really do. It would be foolish to spout off gloom-and-doom for a game you are the producer of. Also, there are aspects of this game that ALL of you should feel very proud of.

There are a couple issues though:

1. Apologize damnit! Seriously! It wouldn't kill you OR Scapes to admit there have been some REAL issues that "could" have been avoided had you handled things differently. Then apologize for it...both of you. I, personally, don't give a crap about you making it up to me...but show us the respect to not blow smoke up our ♥♥♥♥♥ and just, for once, accept some responsibility and show us you are human, not just a bunch of money grubbers who could care less about your player-base.

2. Motivate your community team! Scapes is definitely doing better, and I am seeing some action on the forums, but honestly....overall most "Dev" posts are a bunch of copies/pastes, and often in the same thread. There are a million issues being brought up...do I expect him/them to respond to them all? No way. But when I look at the Dev posts and see the Community Manager often making 3-5 posts a day...that is dissapointing as a player to say the least. When most of those are cut and paste, just referring to the Apex issue, even more dissapointing. When he makes a flat out promise to do something, then deletes threads that call him out about it and never even responds or acknowledges "why" he did not follow through....that's a problem. It was a simple request for a forum. He said he'd have it today, and swore to it. Followed up with him doing nothing, threads being made about it where he never once responded, and he has completely ignored us over and over and over time and time again. If he is overworked and should be delegating stuff more, then damnit, delegate! You don't have to respond to 90% of the ♥♥♥♥♥/moan threads, but at least be part of the community, at least "act" like you want this job, even if you hate it with a passion. Although Trion doesn't see it this way, we actually still are the customers (especially the paying ones).

I have many more things I could bring up, but this is already a book. Like many posts in the past it will be looked over and not acknowledged or responded to. Hell, I'd be happy with a PM...just to show that you guys read this and do care.

I'm not quitting, I don't hate this game, I think it is the best damn game on the market. I'm a realist...it needs to improve a lot, but it is still an awesome idea that is fun as heck to play. My only issue is with the way "You all" have sugar-coated everything, ignored so much, and communicated so little. "That" is something I've never seen in any other MMO I've played...and it isn't meant as a compliment.

there was no reason to take out the car designs other than making those of us who had the designs and mats already wait.

What a joke...why not just use the same function as the other cars for the time being. Then, when you get your "rebalancing" done you can update. All cars should have been added into the Auroria update as a normalized unit, and then rebalancing could have been done over time.

The game is dieing and Trion tries to get as much cash of it as possible before its dead and rush the stuff knowing it`ll have low lifespan. Library and lvl 55 are WAY to early litterally less than 3 month after release. But it seems Trion is content with it, and max estimated lifespan of the game for them is 5-6 months.

Also nice how the post completely awoided the actual reason the game is dieing - blatant exploiting, screwed up economy and absolute loss of Faith in Trion.

This game has been out for over two years now. These patch updates aren't new content it's just catching our servers up to Korea. If they wanted to they could have included all of it at launch.

I'm not sure about your server, but on mine gilda and gold are 1:1 per tradepack. For example, a fishing boat design is 400 Gilda. It's on AH for 2k gold. Either way that's roughly equivalent to turning in 400 packs if you take the safe route on every turn in. My point being, wait for someone else to spend the Gilda, and then buy the design off of them with the equivalent amount of gold.

If they cared even one iota about the players they would at least make a grace period (say two weeks) where the design could be bought with the old currency. Its not like the design wasn't in the game, and we were all taking a big risk. The design was there the entire time and we devoted alot of time to that currency.

Games get balanced, adjustments are made. That's life. It's no different then maxing a class because it's OP, and then it gets a nerf 3 months later and no one wants to play it.

lmao so many crybabies. complaining about gilda stars for cars when gilda is so fricking easy to get. i have 1200+ of them and don't know what to do with it.
these are premium items and should be made difficult to get. make them 1500 gilda or so. i suspect majority of them are the carebears who stay in safe zone and avoid friedich at all cost.

it's similar to other post where people complain about hasla t3 when it's virtually free epherium weapon. i swear some people are so lazy they want everything handed down to them on a silver platter. work hard for your gear, stop being lazy and grind. if you don't want to work hard for your gear, then go use your credit card.

lmao so many crybabies. complaining about gilda stars for cars when gilda is so fricking easy to get. i have 1200+ of them and don't know what to do with it.
these are premium items and should be made difficult to get. make them 1500 gilda or so. i suspect majority of them are the carebears who stay in safe zone and avoid friedich at all cost.

it's similar to other post where people complain about hasla t3 when it's virtually free epherium weapon. i swear some people are so lazy they want everything handed down to them on a silver platter. work hard for your gear, stop being lazy and grind. if you don't want to work hard for your gear, then go use your credit card.

I was going to write a long reply! Bottom line is I have a great time in this game, I see it will have a long future. It does need a few things fixed that will come. Dont like it Leave I hear WOW just launched a new expansion go play it!

Great advice. People have been leaving in droves since the Aurora launch debacle and every time the flow begins to ebb, a new disaster opens up the flood gates again. In looking at the numbers of people that I see active in game and in my guild, I'd estimate that only about 50 to 60% of the players are still active that were here the day before the Aurora launch and the fallout and mass exodus from the Apex fiasco is still ongoing.

I'm glad you still like the game and don't mind the rampant unpunished hacks/exploits and bad decisions made at every level by the game's management. I hope your server is one of the ones that survives when they begin consolidating them in a few months. It would suck to have to start over and try to get land on a new one.

By the by, I still have an open ticket from November 1 that hasn't been worked yet. It would be really super awesome if Trion actually hired enough customer service representatives so that players aren't waiting a month or more to have their in game issues fixed.

Getting my level 40 mount back would be nice. It disappeared when Aranzeb crashed on November 1 and was subsequently taken down for a few hours of unscheduled maintenance.

Now Trion destroyed those dream who collected Honor Point just for car design. And next what? Timber Coupe for 1371743471364 Gilda? Trion please, keep everything on place. Please please please make Timber Coupe at least uses Vocation Badge instead of gilda craps.

Please please do not change timber coupe design to gilda stars. It will ruin the game for me. :/

Thanks so much for the update. I can't freakin' wait for the Farm Hauler Upgrade as well as the raised Level 55 cap!!!

My guildies are super stoked for the Dragon World Boss.

Btw...as I'm sure you're aware, the game is not "dying" in the slightest. We're just shedding the chaff, with the awesome core gamers that will make this game even more amazing continuing to enjoy this awesome game for many months/years to come!

Either you work for Trion or have no clue as to what you speak about.

Last I checked, server population was in severe decline which stagnates the economy and equates to little trade movement. That means, people are not playing or quitting the game.

F2P cannot support this game, they must get money from microtransacitons and when you see an influx of marketplace changes, then you know their focus is on money and not the game.

Keep being excited, you are in the minority, unless they start fixing bugs and adding content that enhances game play which will equate to higher conversion (F2P to P2P) and attach rates (recurring patron status payments) then the game will decline.

With the launch of Auroria, and shortly after, we have had some challenges. We worked closely with XLGAMES to resolve these bugs and connection issues; and we are happy to say that these bugs are almost behind us. An update is going out tonight and tomorrow morning that will resolve the last of the issues and APEX will be turned back on as soon as those are live.

After this update, it is impossible to drive ships, constantly getting dismouted:

Do you even play your game, or bother to talk to people who do? You have a mount that does that.

The Patron Time issue from this week was resolved yesterday and egregious exploiters are being removed from the game.

Crashes are often highly situational and require individual help, be sure to contact our Support Team for help: http://support.trionworlds.com

Scapes , your the coolest but , by egregious exploiters will be removed do you mean all those people my whole server knew were exploiting (because they were braging about it in Faction chat) and we celebrated when they were banned just to be kicked in the sack upon their return 24hr later? Because if they are going to banned again for good this time that would be great!! but if that was them being removed it saddens me.

The best part was after they had their 24hr ban they proceeded to use regrade scrolls all afternoon not sure how much they had but enough to proc 10 greater sucesses within mins of each other. Proving none of there stuff was even taken away.. I really like this game but man we really need to enforce these bans.. otherwise why would they stop? Integrity, Morals..?? yeah we both know that if they had those they wouldn't be cheating in the first place.

On a side note you really have to fix that Land hack before releasing new land. especially since you unbanned those people in that guild who blatently use it who also exploited the APex and chest.. you see a pattern here?

Who are we kidding they made promises and yes people complain and yes people say if we don't like the game then quit. But some people have invested alot of time and money believing this game would be better then the beta. The beta was amazing and fun and exciting. They promised diamond shores and didn't come through, they want to stop bots when it's to late. My family played together all were patrons and the we went weeks losing patron status and it was until a huge amount of people complained they did something. Now all the weeks it took saving up people now can get the same results with no effort. Firecait and scapes why is it when trouble hits you finally want to do something about it? you would have learned like everyone else during beta but you ignored the players and now this game has turned to pay to win. I am sorry I can't fork out 50.00 everytime you put out something new but a lot of players and families are not like me. We waited for patch day to put a house down and funny how one person now sells 6 of those homes I don't believe in that much luck. Waters are now covered with fishing boats counted 60 boats today when fishing. Yes to alot I am complaining but seeing how we won't introduce new content to the new year leaves one answer to this game. You took a good game and didn't think before your actions now a great deal of good guilds and friends are gone and now we are not patrons because it is not worth the time when someone can hack and take it and minutes later sell it for triple the price. You complain about botters and hackers when you are just the same. You added ts trees which now are so random, you expect seiges to keep people here. Like kost we are here waiting for the next new game to come out but stop bsing people and telling them things just to make a dollar. This game has made mistake after mistakes and you have done nothing about it or you have waited to long. Check out all gaming magazines out there and 2 million players? please we all know its not true try owning up to your mistakes instead of leading false advertising and adding stuff so people will buy. This isnt a game for fun and excitement it is a game where you have your hands out all the time. Other games coming out have mentioned in many details how they will not follow archeage mistakes so i wish to thank you on that. Yes I may hate the game but i do log in do my dailies and speak to friends that is one thing I like about this is speaking everyday with people i like. But the hope and hype is gone and frankly anything you say to change many peoples minds is to late. Such a shame this game was amazing and exciting in beta and you turned it into such a let down.

This game doesn't have months or years it will become dead and die and the makers have no one else to blame but themselves. But I appreciate the laugh because I have never seen anyone kiss as much butt as you have and not just kiss but but talk out of their butt. Trion screwed up made mistakes and can't fix them and if they could they wouldn't they are to busy thinking of themselves and not the players.Look forward to see more butt kissing... i need another laugh for tonight.(eats popcorn)

Games get balanced, adjustments are made. That's life. It's no different then maxing a class because it's OP, and then it gets a nerf 3 months later and no one wants to play it.
Could you please explain where you were going with that analogy? If I picked an overpowered class I would fully expect it to receive a balancing pass weakening it or improving other classes. How does that apply here? Why would anyone expect that the currency type used for car designs would change? Pricing differences within that same currency would be totally acceptable whereas giving players the incentive to save up over such a long time only to switch the source of the design is not.

what is the deal with the cars anyway?
whats there to normalise
if you change the skills then the your ♥♥♥♥ing up the cars that people want CAUSE of the skills
if your changing how to obtain the recipy's then your making it harder for other people to get the Actual Car they want
i mean im a FARMER/CRAFTER
i want the timber coupe so i can do inland trade runs more often with a noticable speed increase
and use its ability's to jump over rivers or gaps
i dont do massive GIANT gilda star trade runs on a PIRATE INFESTED world
its impossible for me to get the recipe trough gilda stars
thats why ive been saving up for the car recipe with my Vocation points
so far i have 50k vocation points
and still need a 100k points to be able to purchace the car in its ORIGINAL store location(the recipe)
some pvpers only wanted to get 50k honor points to get the red car
now your telling them Sorry youl have to go do Gilda Trade runs to get that car?????
whats wrong here?
the reason they were in ther designated locations of purchace
was that you had somehting to WORK FOR
getting that comet speedster
was supposed to be a perk to Arenapvp/worldpvp
and hte timber coupe a perk for FARMERS
and the blue car we can already get was a perk for TRADERS

what are you changing that you needed to remove it from the game SO BADLY
tell me? id like to know
cause im getting more and more Pissed off at how you so call NORMALISE everything
when all your doing is making any ingame perk we are trying to EARN
oboslete
cause a CHEAPER
or EASYER to obtain item is on par or better then those perk items

same deal with the gliders
the 4 gliders that you create AFTER the ultimate glider were not just meant FOR LOOKS
they made game play different
and before you respond with but then players will only use a specific glider cause its better?
THATS THE WHOLE POINT
they can still get the image design on the market and Fuse it with their glider when it comes to looks
BUT WHY IN GODS NAME change the stats on an item to match a LOWER LEVEL ITEM

you done ♥♥♥♥ED up trion

and before you state that your in talks with XLgames about this
they are not the one ASKING for normalised items
YOU ARE (trion)

In Early December, we’ll be rolling out our new Public Test Server (PTS) where you can check out all of the upcoming content before it launches on live. On PTS you’ll have the opportunity to auto-level up if you choose, try out the new content, and check out the new items on the Marketplace (with a special PTS-only pool of credits). We want you to let us know what you think! Your feedback on what you see on PTS – both positive and negative – will be incredibly helpful for both us and XLGAMES as we share new content with you.

Hello Victoria / Firecait,

If you wish to honestly offer the PTS, be aware that it will be noted as being unacceptable if reported bugs and exploits are committed to the live server builds. This will further damage the already crippled company image for both Trion and XL, inclusive of their offerings, present and future, ie. Trove for Trion & Civ Online for XL. (Check the internet for what I speak of, Trion and XL are being hacked to bits at present in postings and reviews flowing in, in droves on major gaming sites).

Never the less this is a good starting point.

In lieu of the PTS, can you check what I have mentioned in this thread linked - Page 19, post # 184 (http://forums.archeagegame.com/showthread.php?127784-New-exploit/page19)

Alternate link incase a mod deletes thread.
http://web.archive.org/web/20141125022505/http://forums.archeagegame.com/showthread.php?127784-New-exploit/page19

It is in reference to other exploits of a similar nature to the already presently working ones at the time of this posting.

I am not willing to test if it works other than on a PTS where it will be for the purpose of exposing and rectifying such flaws in system design & workflow process routine coding etc.

TLDR - To check purple bolded.


Makes the whole only 12 people used it claim by Scott on MMORPG on the apex exploit a joke doesn't it ? Vague enough to be correct if your debating strictly based on semantics when in reality, there are several ways to achieve the same opening process of apex/rng chest etc over and over. Whether it be the same item or a duplicated entry into the database of an item. (Using the same or altered unique identifier)

Portal method is just one of them, the mail system update is just another (sending via the mail subsystem before the transaction server is able to complete its process routine and update the required subsystems and expire the opened item on completion), the mail system duplication of items, another again ... and the list goes on.

Should I mention that Trion should check to see if the same is true of unwrapping handicrafted jewelery items to give earth based items for next craftable level tier item ... or other stuff similar to this. ie. Unwrapping item, sending via mail, and once unwrapped get a dupped jewelery item, repeat and decon all those that are not earth based to reforge at a reforging station ?

^^ Don't know if this works, just thought of it now as another possible loophole.

Point being, Trion/XL needs to start thinking on a concept design level rather than at the result level of what has come to pass for other "potential" loopholes.

Either way, it is something both Scott and Jake need to team up and get onto fixing these issues, recoding the required workflow processes at a design level, etc. Trion has a lot of saying power in the contract they have between Trion & XL, so it is not all Trions fault, nor XLs. It is a combined partnership effort between the two organisations.

Thankyou and I look forward to testing on the PTS and bashing out dents in the game that is currently known as WreckAge to bring it back into its intended design ArcheAge.

As a stretch goal to releasing the PTS > Would yourself (Firecait), Scapes and any other relevant members of the ArcheAge team consider doing something along these lines to establish a stronger link between US/EU Trion/ArcheAge and its community (http://www.twitch.tv/landmarkgame/c/5399891). It is working out extremely well for SOE your competition.

Hopefully in time, with the introduction of the PTS and with a bit of forward thinking and honesty on all side included into the mix we together as a community can bring Trion/ArcheAge's image to being something more along these lines;


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQvsjs7-J0U

That is without laying blame on to others (Outward blaming) whos fault what is, instead taking ownership of the issues to affect change (Taking responsibility) we can all together achieve this image again for Trion/ArcheAge instead of the present day Tri 'n/Wreckage image we have now.

~ Sparkz.


Note: Hoping to see Update 1.7 on PTS before live deployment,
Please consider doing this to avoid another screwup that will only lead to disaster.

Including the Delphic Star items. (3000 house / 300 marine house or whatever Trion chooses to set them at for US/EU)

Example:

Also refinements that will be needed for the esculating tax system upto 5 weeks paid in advance;

Along with Trion's single glyph account policy to match the intended escualtive tax certificate placement & costing design of ArcheAge as to not give one player a huge cashshop and/or gold used to purchase tax certificates advantage by needing a lot less due to multi-accounts over another who plays as intended, 1 glyph account used per participant (Multi from the same household locked until verified);

A fair and balanced system that all use (http://forums.archeagegame.com/showthread.php?121720-Land-Grabbing-Stereotyping&p=1146415&viewfull=1#post1146415) - Equality!

And please do not forget the "Land/Building Expansion Certificates" for building your 16x16 crow designs into 24x24 gazebo farms.

http://www.midgard-kontaktkreis.de/files/archeage/bigcrow.jpg


I would hope that the decision makers at Trion eg. Scott put the value of their company's reputation before the short term money grab that releasing such items can produce whilst damaging and crippling further both the ArcheAge game design concept along with Trion's and XL's organisation's reputation further on how they have provisioned for the release of ArcheAge.


May the release of the PTS be the first step to providing for the intended game design of ArcheAge and leave the exploiters ... Thunderstruck!

Well I appreciate "your situation" in knowing where "your limits" are in relation to where "you draw the line", give up and walk away, accepting whatever truth in your belief system's structure that helps you sleep better at night and gives you the ability to free yourself, let go and move on;

So with that I say thankyou for the good luck, even though it is not required. Luck is a fools errand.

Perserverance and being systematic in what you are doing is what gets things done, not luck.

Requesting consideration is not bargaining even though you may perceive it to be this way from your viewpoint. Bargaing from my viewpoint is when one compromises on something eventually agreeing on an outcome and not making a request for something to be considered.

Now that we have defined this, your ....

The five stages of grief: Denial / Anger / Bargaining / Depression / Acceptance.

Do not come into play for myself.

I am not in grief, I am disappointed though understand why things have gone wrong whilst factoring in all elements from design flaws on XL's part, through to provisioning and mnagement of policies and procedures on Trions part through to the biggest factor which outstrips both the prior mentioned exponentially, us the players, both legit and the exploiters amongst us cheating their fellow participants in ArcheAge. (And not missing taking into consideration the lateral legit item trader RMT communities that have been around since UO and also the lateral RMT gold seller sweatshops from Asia through to Romania (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gold_farming))

Never the less, do not try to tag me with your values, I am happy for you to express your opinion of how you feel about your situation and how you will be handling your affairs from here on in in relation to the such.

I differ in that tomorrow my birthday at 38yrs and this will be my 25th year of proper online gaming. How do I know this? It is when I got my first real PC for my 13th. Prior I had small PCs, eg. Atari-xx00s, BBC Micro, VIC20, Commodore64, Amiga, XT with CGA graphics.

So I have seen a lot way before WoW and the UO era of online games;

I am also a supporter of to be released titles, as stated here previously (http://forums.archeagegame.com/showthread.php?124275-EZI-Server-%28Offering-under-consideration-Feedback-please%29-Marketplace-items-for-gold-service.&p=1182045#post1182045).

My tolerance is low in relation to how middle & upper management @ Trion handles their affairs (http://forums.archeagegame.com/showthread.php?124275-EZI-Server-%28Offering-under-consideration-Feedback-please%29-Marketplace-items-for-gold-service.&p=1189732&viewfull=1#post1189732);

However wiht that being said, I also have seen such rough launches before and how things can improve.

Some examples, even for games which are not MMOs.

Released as Dino Beatdown Originally - Great concept, failed miserably.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GIDBdhFD50

Developers and small community that worked to improving the design and resolving the flaws ...
Now released and as a major hit too, quite a fun game to play in comparison to the original release.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rNx9xQAgQA

And still going strong with constant updates and improvements:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8oAQfhyLkGI

The latest is Orion - Dino: Prelude, which includes a cashshop ;)


Second Example, a sandbox game with tutorial themepark questlines to teach you what can be done:
Egosoft X-Rebirth, seen as a failure by the mass market upon release.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRwj_Vu80m0


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Bb_jCP1mJo

Reviews here > http://steamcommunity.com/app/2870/reviews/

Again, Egosoft and a small community saw the flaws and have perservered to improving the game. How things are shaping up for 3.0 release in early December. Many have done the backflip on how things are going and are quite enjoying the game now > http://steamcommunity.com/app/2870/discussions/0/613941122593288671/


My point being is that even though you may feel this way about something and lack the confidence, faith and will power to contribute constructively towards positive progress forward in improving what is on offer (Even with the potential option that "may" still under consideration between Trion & XL for US/EU re-release);

It does not mean others must wear that same evaluation/critical stance on where things may lead with ArcheAge.

With that being said, each person is an individual with differing life experiences and skill sets. Try to be considerate of this in your attempt to pigeonhole & impress your definition of where others are at. (Re - Quoting part of my post and offering the 5 steps of grief).

I could do the same in relation to crushing/deflating ones own ego, deconstructing ones own belief system and then the unravelling process which follows in becoming real, eventually resurfacing and starting to from there on in live conciously and in the moment, taking responsibility for ones own actions and ownership for any consequences those actions may produce along with their knock on effects that are usually not foreseen by most as they are too busy with their ownselves (seeing past their own ego and/or circumstances) to be considerate of others around them;

This is something very powerful and also something that most can not handle, hence will not like looking into that mirror of reflection, into you see me, into me see you.

Or as stated where, what one person sees and dislikes in another is something that they dislike about themselves. If this were not the case it would not bother them as they would have let go of this already within themselves.

Personally I do not give up so easily on a concept that has true potential attached, whether others can see it or not. I do however know where to draw the line on things, yet i have not reached this point.

Wow! A very nice post, thank you (not being sarcastic). I pray the game does get better, I still have patron until Xmas and seeing this has been my favourite MMO (apart from Star Trek Online which I love), ever! I'm keeping an eye on it, your positivity is fairly infectious (almost wished you work for Trion).
My MMO history is very brief, compared to yours, I 'came out' for Elder Scrolls Online' hated it, and saw immediately what theme park meant and knew it wasn't for me. Have since played SWTOR, The Secret World & Rift, enjoying the stories but pretty much playing solo. Archeage is the first MMO where I got to level 50, met a great social guild and started seeing what the excitement was in online games - but the freedom in AA! Gliding across the landscape, going fishing and just chatting over Teamspeak, crafting things for guild members, getting help building my first cart, but then the exploits, the hacks (I'm learning that bots seem to be par for the course in online games), the terrible customer service, random crashes, the cash shop debacle...

see over two million players interacting with each other -

Ridiculous. Evidence to back up your stats. Two million ACTIVE players? Not a chance. My server (Tahyang) is severely lacking people. Of my 72 members, only about 10 still play actively and we've moved them to another guild to merge for their benefit. I only play once a week now just to pay taxes for my land.


We'll also turn on a couple of holiday-themed events and goodies that will be available to players

Selling boxes is not an event. You keep using that word, do you even know what it means? How can your team on this game be so foolish! Event's in Trove and Rift are player interaction based, not cash shop. What's wrong with you people?
event
ɪˈvɛnt/Submit
noun

a thing that happens or takes place, especially one of importance.
"the momentous political events of the late 1980s"


a planned public or social occasion.
"staff have been holding a number of events to raise money for charity"
synonyms: occurrence, happening, proceeding, episode, incident, affair, circumstance, occasion, business, matter, experience, eventuality, phenomenon; More
each of several particular contests making up a sports competition.
;

What's the point here? You didn't even acknowledge the exploits and abuse that you have refused to roll-back on or fix.

You have managed to push away some incredibly dedicated fans already. I love this game, but i do not love what you are doing with it. Honestly, as press and as a designer i have seen some incredible mess ups and mishandling but Trion's handling of ArcheAge is reminiscent of the way Vanguard saga of heroes was handled by sony.

Very disappointing.

Hey Franc Kaos,

Thanks for the kind words and appreciate the feedback.

Yes, XR has its issues, amongst the constant excessive negativity across forums, we kept pushing on forward with ideas and suggestions to improve gameplay and various mechanics and elements in XR. I too am a backer of ED on kickstarter, 1k usd pledge of support, however I am concerned with various elements in ED being very big and open however big is not always better, it lacks a lot of substance too. This of course will improve over time.

Ref > http://steamcommunity.com/app/2870/discussions/0/613937306855356535/?tscn=1412902232#c613938693095338341

I also use various designs on a conceptual level to demonstrate how it could potentially be better done as you can see from the above linked information (Warning wall-o-text with relevant videos for reading breaks). In this case taking ED concepts and demonstrating how things can be improved in XR's gameplay to provide for a greater level of immersive & emergent gameplay in the sandbox environment. Mostly through demonstration of concepts offering a greater level of suspension of dis-belief bringing it a "touch closer to reality" of what one can expect in real space.

Here is a video explaining how suspension of disbelief works:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHrTTgmB_3w

Lately though I have been going a bit crazy with investment into Star Citizen (Also using Cry3Engine), it has not outstripped the recent input into Shroud of the Avatar (http://steamcommunity.com/app/326160) yet though getting closer, now at 4k worth of ships and other goodies, including the battlepack set as my intial pledge (https://robertsspaceindustries.com/pledge/Combos/Battle-Pack).

Hmmm which reminds me of an amusing bug relating to the chairman/CEO :)


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=419rL2h5vCk

Never the less, I believe Star Citizen will offer a lot more than ED long term, however ED will be out long before SC in terms of gold release.

Here is some of the lastest developments from SC ..

Initially in its pre-alpha test phase ... Ground based lighting etc.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UaFSd-ezQc

And of course, Chris demonstrating what will come to pass in relation to ground based life in SC's persistent AI driven universe.
(Yes there are planets to explore, 41 mil usd pledged stretch goal achieved earlier this year (https://robertsspaceindustries.com/comm-link/transmission/13783-Letter-From-The-Chairman-41-Million))


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gGLE3USB2U



Aanyway, thanks for the vote of confidence, I am using the above to demonstrate that developments and improvements will take time to implement, test and deploy. XL can not do everything at once so must prioritise, along with other commitments made to publishers, for example - Civ Online proposed release date etc.

As far as ArcheAge/Trion & XL US/EU offering is concerned. It is not time to hang up our hats yet!

I noticed this morning, yay! I am 1 year older at 38 today, no grey hairs so all good, that APEX has been disabled from the market again.

This demonstrates that Trion are concerned and are working to eliminate other potential and/or discovered loopholes.

Take Care,
Sparkz/Viper

And please do not forget the "Land/Building Expansion Certificates" for building your 16x16 crow designs into 24x24 gazebo farms.

I would hope that the decision makers at Trion eg. Scott put the value of their company's reputation before the short term money grab that releasing such items can produce whilst damaging and crippling further both the ArcheAge game design concept along with Trion's and XL's organisation's reputation further on how they have provisioned for the release of ArcheAge.


May the release of the PTS be the first step to providing for the intended game design of ArcheAge and leave the exploiters ... Thunderstruck!

I support and second that. Finally someone who is in some way quite like emotional invested in this game like me.
You wrote this because you care, because ArcheAge means something to you - and I hope they will get their things together in the future. Lack of communication with the community and especially the obvious lack of communication between developer and publisher. Fix it please Trion. You were known as a trustworthy company. Keep this going. Or regain some trust back.

And please, please hire staff, moderators for the forums - or at least some community officers.

I love ArcheAge so far, but thats why I am a person that define fun in a game I play not because of other peoples cheated or exploited stuff or some items which I had not achieved or was able to get yet.

Instead I am focussing on my own business and be proud of my efforts and working on my future goals ingame.

Set sail - to "not fail" this time. I am really looking forward to this.

And Trion: Please listen to people like him.

Have fun everybody. It is just a game :)

So... about that PTS-only credit pool. Do you have to actually buy credits on the test server, similar to live, or are they given to us in order to test new items? Is it available for F2Ps or patrons only?

I foresee a few outcomes:
1. Either you can't purchase items from the marketplace with money, and it soon becomes a populated server - insinuating that it becomes more popular than live servers, I mean - to get away from the "P2W" mentality and player/guild whales;
Or,
2. You have to spend real money on a test server to test the game for Trino. You're not playing with your credits anymore, you're now more of a guinea pig than you already are.

Recap on PTS deployment ... And to answer your question about market credits.


That is why we're pushing so hard on a Public Test Server for you right now and look forward to working with you there in the near future, even if it means updates may need a little more time to bake as we evaluate future deliveries there together.


so my question now is.
whats the E.T.A on a public test server. as trust me you need one. every decent game these days has one.


As mentioned, we're bringing the PTS online internally today. Once it passes muster and we establish a method for bringing player characters over to it (or simply buffing new ones to max level), we'll announce it broadly.


Will it work similar to World of Tanks test server where users have a certain amount of credits to test cash shop items ? Because otherwise it would be a futile attempt and if you expect people to use their actual credits on a test server then you're mad


Currently, Credits are shared across the live servers and PTS. This is not ideal functionality as part of the purpose of a PTS is to test the Marketplace (though we do perform functionality tests on it internally). The goal is for Credit balances to be separated, one of the hurdles to getting the PTS live.

Search is your friend,
Cheers,
Sparkz.

I am not concerned with everything being pushed to us quickly. The game is years old in other regions and I am glad to catch up to the rest.

Besides, there isn't a thing worth doing in Auroria without Level 55, Diamond Shores, and the Library. Serpentis is the obvious exception but limited to 5 times before going on cooldown. Since they ♥♥♥♥♥ the loot tables of local mobs, it's pointless to spend time there.

What you have accomplished is a lot of rage, frustration and tears for the awesome, but deeply flawed game, I seriously doubt that they actually have 2M users, those are the same numbers they advertised when they launched.

companies count all of their accounts

that doesnt necessarily mean they are active players this also includes banned accounts and alts

You seem like a cool guy sparks and happy birthday. I hope Trion does turn this game around for better... mostly because there's nothing else I want to play right now. Pssshhhh. But really this is a great game with a lot of potential.

You are clueless. I pity you. Mail.ru AA release was failed as disaster, but its nothing compared to severity of what we expirienced with Trion here. The game IS dead, since cheating and exploiting and bots already ruined an economy and at this point there is no way to ever fix it. Just past week 3 major guilds quit my server (with their farewell topics being deleted from the forums and guild leaders posting it banned from forums) and online overall (one of most active EU servers) seems dead drop. Others asking why they should continue playing the game since there is no good prospects for the future whatsoever. The last card in the sleeve Trion had was lvl55 and they use it now asap trying to keep people playing not understanding that at this moment it will only further ruin the game.

Sure, i can stop whining and quit, so can my guild - and you`d have one less of major pvp guilds on server created for pvp with many others already quite and others quiting since no competition and anything to do.

People were excited for this game, prepared through KR, played at RU AA, beta tested and wished to remain here for years. All futile. I love the game and i`d love it to be main game for YEARS as was stated, but so far its been disaster through disaster. The game could be renamed to betting sim of "Trions Next ♥♥♥♥ Up 2014".

And this Dev update, in face of most major AA crisis so far (which is just an icing on a cake of every previous one really), is but an insult. And to top that, releasing lvl55 update 3-4 months after release and 1-2 months after Auroria opening indicates they have absolutely no clue about the game they publish and will continue doing same mistakes over and over, same as with hasla T3.

If you are casual player that just logs into AA to plant some things and sail around for 10 minutes for fun on F2P account, sure you`ll might have some fun. For all other purposes - the game is dead. Let alone the disaster of headstart, auroria failures at NA, botting, blatant 3rd party hacking and worst than all regions Marketplace policies and game support - the revelation of the gamebreaking economy exploits existing for MONTHS, nominal suspending people with not nearly (but it`s already impossible at this point) fixing impact on economy, rumbling tree, hasla t3 release, resulting population drop because of all above and other stuff i could list for pages - makes the game dead as what it was designed to be and attracted most people and guilds for: competitive sandbox with good economy, pvp and warfare.

At this point no effort they`ll make will really "save" the game, but least they could have tried to save face somehow, but it seems the only thing to expect is what will be the next ♥♥♥♥ up (also its pretty clear after this letter).

The only way to somewhat salvage this wreck would be doing like Final Fantasy XIV - taking it down and relaunching.

This man speaks to truth and nothing but the truth.
I was looking forward to play Archeage for years to come.
But the way Trion is handling this mmo is a disgrace......

They needed to pace this mmo and starting with pre 1.0 Archeage and let it mature.
They rushed in every patch and mixed patches ontop of each other that did tons of damage.
The exploiters caused serious economic damage beyond repair and got away with it.

High end PVP guilds left disapointed, that was our competition. our contend.
I dont play this mmo to play Farmville, i play this mmo for pvp and what is left when all pvp guilds quit ?

Trion could have prevented tons of ♥♥♥♥ups if they would have tested this on the ALPHA SERVER <------ Where people payed 150 EURO TO TEST PATCHES <-----
Yet they used LIVE servers as a facking TEST SERVER and ruined the whole mmo into a trainwreck beyond repair.


I still play this game untill our guild runs out of pvp contend, but man i will never forget how Trion made an Abomination from this mmo that could have been the best mmo release in a decade.
Greed and incompetence ruined this mmo, nothing else.

Well spoken preacher <3 ^^

The Submarine and Timber Coupe are still undergoing re-balancing. We are expecting to have the Comet Speedster designs available on Mirage Island for Gilda Stars with the December update.

Why the hell are you releasing the Comet Speedster design for Gilda stars in Mirage. It is supposed to be attainable through HONOR. The whole point of having different cars attainable in different ways was to allow people to have some originality and make people have to deliberately choose which one they wanted to farm for. I spent a very very long time grinding out 150k vocation and now that I see you are releasing the honor car via Gilda stars am I to assume that you are going to do the same with the vocation badge one? All my time is wasted now?

The KR version doesn't have that many hacks or bots for one simple reason. You have to register with your real life ID in KR.
Yes! With your ID. You can't do many shenningans when you can be identified in person.
When someone in KR gets caught cheating he can't play the game anymore, when he is not stealing someones ID, which gets you jailtime.
Also when he gets caught in KR you are banned from all other games. They have a blacklist.
See thats why you can program a ♥♥♥♥ty client in KR and get away with it.

Thats also the reason why russia is such a hack and botfest. The client is ♥♥♥♥ty in its core.

Credit where credit is due.

This is the exact thing I wanted to point out to Scott in a detailed letter I was going to write to his company. This won't be happening now since I have decided to ride things out till end of Jan before making a reassessment.

However for all those who missed this. This is exactly 100% the reason the coding in this game is LAX (https://www.google.com/#q=lax+meaning) with reference to the workflow process routine coding (coding principles) in the way the transaction server handles communicating with all the subsystems and updates to relevant databases are pretty much backwards.

See it as opening your door to leave your house to go to work and not closing that door after you have left and then being rest assured that your house is secured.

This is the way ArcheAge is coded right down to the core. There is no need to lock your front door, there is no need to even close it for that matter until you return home from work again. Why ? read again ...

Hackshield is not an added layer of defense, it is the only defense and a very weak one at that, 3rd party bypass drivers are updated daily (several of them). You can see the Hackshield service, which I wrote about here - http://forums.archeagegame.com/showthread.php?74680-An-open-letter-to-Trion-Worlds-and-the-Archeage-gaming-community-concerning-Hack-Shield&p=1143744&viewfull=1#post1143744 as the security company guy who drives around the neighbourhood and occassional shines a light on an open door house to see if any perps may have entered, occassionally walking in and having a look around every dozen or so houses in the hope of statistically catching a bad guy, remember "some of the bad guys are using bypass drivers", their own or the several 3rd party ones updated daily that are available for Hackshield.



In other words, very LAX and poor coding principles have been used, the game uses cry3engine and runs extremely well due to XL's ability to optimise code which is coded in such a way that can run fast due to very little in terms of checks and measures being in place to stop security flaws that can be easily exploited.

And to make it clear again ...

We will when we get onto the PTS to outline all the issues. It will take time however to have things reworked and recoded.

Do not expect the first PTS build to go live for at least 3 months and that is if your very lucky with XL rediverting the required development resources needed to make the required changes. Rest assured if Trion wants to save face and not look like complete arses in the long run, they will make sure this process occurs properly and in line with their company's "Duty of Care" policy.

Scott may seem pretty cool and laid back, he has had a lot of experience in the industry. However I guarantee you this IS the first time he has run into this situation as mentioned in my post above; So mind his cockiness in his replies here further down >

PS. I use the word cockiness to mean this (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=cockiness&defid=1967453), it has no relation to the childishness on this forum earlier in relation to genitals >

Cockiness
A word people use to describe in others what they are lacking in themselves; which is an extreme confidence and comfort in any surround. To be cocky.
Person 1: Man that guy has some cockiness about him.
Person 2: Yea but he just walked in and everyone already loves him.

The game is dieing and Trion tries to get as much cash of it as possible before its dead and rush the stuff knowing it`ll have low lifespan. Library and lvl 55 are WAY to early litterally less than 3 month after release. But it seems Trion is content with it, and max estimated lifespan of the game for them is 5-6 months.

Also nice how the post completely awoided the actual reason the game is dieing - blatant exploiting, screwed up economy and absolute loss of Faith in Trion.

^^ What this guy said. Total joke the way Trion and XL have handled this. It has almost felt like they were trying to kill this game on purpose. I'm positive there are a ton of people over at Trion literally ♥♥♥♥ting themselves right now. This has to be like a million miles past worst case scenario. Watching how other fail MMOs have done it suggests that right after the first of the year they will lay off about 60% of their staff, key members of the dev team will leave citing a need to spend more time with their families, but in reality they will have taken the jobs they are looking for as we speak and they will start working on ways to merge servers without calling it a merge. No idea how that's gonna work.

Trion this is bad, really bad. The sad thing is you were actually an OK and well liked MMO house. Rift gave you a good rep and Defiance didn't really hurt you too bad. Trove actually looks kind of neat and people actually have good things to say about it. ArcheAge though... in the end no one is going to hate XL. No one is even going to hate Archeage. In fact, what everyone is saying is, "Archeage is actually a really cool game. Too bad Trion is the worst company ever." Trion you let XL tempt you with a cash cow and you used that thing to strip the company of every last shred of good will the the gaming community had toward you. Not only have you failed in this Archeage endeavor, but you have pretty much tainted any games you want to foist on us in the future. "Trion" is very rapidly becoming synonymous with "Failure" in the minds of most of your potential customers.

This is such a shame. You were doing so well too. RIP Trion.

I find it funny that a lot of people are saying the game is dying and people are leaving in droves. I am not really seeing that in game. Sure a lot of housing / land is expiring so people can get some land finally, but last night my guild (I am not the guild leader) and I camped some 'stinking elves' in hellswamp and halcyon and ended up liberating a nice fat merchant ship that the reds obviously stole :) There was all sorts of activity on the coast and seas last night - most I've seen in a while. While I am not a PVPer by nature, I find the change of pace from playing farmville (where I spend the bulk of my labor) and attacking the enemy and liberating trade packs very fun. We get on our TS server and chat and kill reds.

The game is dying ??? Not sure either way, but on my server people are still very active and fighting. And more importantly - having fun.. which I believe is why we play these games. I don't play to be the best - I play to have fun. When I stop having fun with my online friends I will find another game like I have before. But with new content coming and more reds to kill and trade packs to liberate I don't see that happening anytime soon.

And for the trolls - I was one of the many who was 'locked out' during the Aurora blitz and missed the entire release. Sure I was mad, but I got over it and am back to having fun. AA isn't perfect but hell, no game is perfect.

Completely agree. I also think that those who keep 'spewing' that the game is dying, are disappointed players, who come from organized guilds/groups who had specific expectations coming into this game, which have not been met. That's fair enough. However there are many new folk registering and beginning their journey daily. A player flow/turnover is not necessarily an unhealthy thing (opens up land abit to newbies/solo players). The player base is clearly divided and not all can be appeased at the same time imo. Nowadays MMO's do not focus solely on the 'hardcore' minority (with a few exceptions such as EvE etc).
Lets not forget the titles who have turned it around despite 'dying' straight after release... swtor & sto for example. FF is also an example, although that method used is unlikely to happen here.

Someone said that decision made by Publisher is not killing this game please tell this 250 PPL from my guild who left GAME already.


I stay with Tou trion till January 10 2015 on that day ends my ARCHEUM Patron status, I think you need to prepare for a big Crisis lots of players ends his big ADVENTURE WITH TRION for good.


But till that day I wait for some good decisions from your side.

On the bright side , a lvl cap increase coming in the next few weeks means i dont have to worry too much about wasting time farming hasla for t2 or t3 weapons. most likely they will be replaced with something better at lvl 55. thoughts?

I continue to enjoy playing ArcheAge daily, as it is incredibly fun/interesting, and plan on continuing to play for many months (if not years) to come.

As with any new MMO release, there are going to be technical issues (new to this region), and while some of the issues have been irritating, they have not negatively impacting me all that much.

ArcheAge is awesome and I can't wait for the lvl 55 cap to be released. It's going to make so many more interesting builds viable resulting in even more fun/excitement.

I guess this makes me a so called "white knight" for actually enjoying the game and not having the same exact preferences as all the griefers that feel the need to constantly remind everyone on the forums that they're quitting. So be it.

Add me to the list of people who are considering moving on. Just tired of the constant stream of exploits which are ignored by XL. In retrospect, I should have paid much greater attention to whoever mentioned early on, that the developers of AA had already started work on a new game. That should have told me that they had no intention of finishing or supporting their game. Lesson learned...

I won't be burned again though... this is the first and last time I bother throwing money (several hundred dollars worth) at a multi-player online game.

I see this game growing, not shrinking. The company is allocating more resources to it, not less. I see them actively planning and implementing new content. I am encouraged by this activity and look forward to a long life for AA.

Hello everyone and FireCait,

Like a fair amount of you guys, I took advantage of the actual thunderstruck market and I decided to build myself a car.
I have chosen the red one : Comet Speedster which the design was originally available at the Honor vendor for 50k honor points.
I have almost everything ready in my warehouse but the design and I started to farm the honor required for it.
But I found this post from you, FireCait, after doing some research on the forum.


The Submarine and Timber Coupe are still undergoing re-balancing. We are expecting to have the Comet Speedster designs available on Mirage Island for Gilda Stars with the December update.


So I just wanted to make sure if this statement, about the currency changes for the blueprints, was real or just misinformation (sorry don't hate me but it already happened in the past several time).

50k honor or 800 gilda stars, doesn't matter to me to farm one or the other. But farm both just to make sure I get the plan right away after the update would just overburn me.
That's why a little word from FireCait or anyone who has access to official sources about the matter would be really appreciate.

I would love to just wait the next update, download it, log in, buy the design and then just make my way to the closest carpentry workbench to build the car instead of waiting longer because I didn't farm the right currency for the design.

And I'm sure that a bunch of people want to know if it's the same deal with the Timber Coupe design which was usually available for 150k vocation points at the Blue Salt vendor.

Thank you in advance FireCait.

LOL. You do realize that at least half the server populations have left in the last month right?

Simple to claim without proof of official numbers to back it up imo.
Still, more land cant be a bad thing...

Trolls will be trolls. We're still waaay to early in the life cycle of this game to be writing obituaries yet.

Well said +1 :)

when worker compensation potions are 30g+ and taxes are 1g per cert, land isnt worth using or owning.

For recent arrivals wanting to experience the 'homestead' part, land is an important part of the game imo.

There will be no more land. Unless you have the ability to "grab" land. So, have a nice day
