It would be nice to pay for taxes from the website.

Benefits:

1) No loss of land in a long server issue.
2) Ability to pay for land when going on vacation and having limited internet access.
3) Ability to pay taxes ahead of time.

:) It would be nice to be able to pay taxes ahead of time for short periods, but I don't think it would work to pay from the website- People would hold onto land even if they weren't playing. If you can't even log in long enough to check your mail and pay your taxes, you prolly aren't playing enough to need land. Other players would appreciate the land being freed up.

ArcheAge Mobile - log in with your Trion account to access your in-game mail and auction listings on the go.
Problem solved. Sort of. Maybe?
I mean, I know there's a few people that wouldn't mind being able to check the auction listings outside of the game just because, like that EVE market site.

It's not a bad suggestion and your points are valid but like another comment said more people who aren't playing would keep their land up (like skill training in EVE). I'd support longer pre-pay times from in game though.

Closest we can get is paying taxes in advance for 5-weeks ahead, which will come in the future updates (1.7 I believe).

Any update information on this?

That's a good idea.

Throw in the map too! so I can see if the zone is about to go to war.

Yeah sometimes I might want to go on a vacation longer than two weeks or a vacation that is longer than a week and half but just timed right before my taxes come in the mail.

In fact, we have this on PTS this week for testing.


Something else we wanted to test out on PTS before putting it in patch notes: PRE-PAID TAXES.

You'll now find a "Prepay" button on the Housing Info UI.

Using this button allows you to pay up to 5 weeks of taxes in advance, one week at a time.

There's no counter showing "how many weeks advance paid", so keep an eye on the housing info UI's "protected until" timer to see how far out your taxes are paid through:

A couple of restrictions:
- Houses must be current on existing taxes in order to use the pre-pay feature.
- Houses with prepaid taxes cannot be put up for sale.

We'll be adding this to the official Dread Prophecies patch notes assuming it continues to function as expected on PTS. :)

Ohh, that's really exciting. I'm going on a vacation soon and I know I'm a little annoyed I have to login at some point just to pay my taxes when I'm abroad. It doesn't take long but I'd rather not have to worry about it at all, prepaid taxes would solve that problem entirely. :)

Wow awesome, I hope this goes through.
