We’re thrilled to be starting ArcheAge’s first Closed Beta Event today!

Your support has been absolutely overwhelming – We’re truly humbled by your dedication to not just the best sandbox of 2014, but the best MMO of 2014, in such massive numbers.

We’re also happy to announce today that over one million of you have already joined our community of ArcheAge supporters, even before the first Beta event began!

As ArcheAge is Trion’s first MMO partnership, it’s been an exciting and educational journey to get here. We have translated around 2 million words, localized a ton of quests, extended our international infrastructure and opened it to a partner for the first time, and more. We’ve spent untold hours getting everything ready for you. All while working closely with XLGAMES to customize ArcheAge to better suit the Western audiences.

Players who are new to ArcheAge will get to experience its uniquely customized Version 1.2 for the first time on our Beta servers in both North America and Europe.

With this version, we bring you updated combat balance, improvements to the economic game of ArcheAge, and a host of great new features. In ArcheAge you can create a farm and breed native animals for unique mounts, build a ship and travel the high seas to trade in your goods for coin, make a name for yourself crafting the best gear in the game, stalk and slaughter your fellow players, or build your own castle on Auroria!

Our first Closed Beta Event, “A Brighter Age,” (http://www.archeagegame.com/en/beta/) starts today, and continues on through Monday, July 21st. This is just the first of our Closed Beta Events! We’ll have events during the week as well as overlapping weekends. We’ll have specifics closer to each event, as the results of a given event will affect the schedule.

Please do keep in mind – There’s real testing going on during these Closed Beta Events! This isn’t “just a marketing beta.” We’re evaluating gameplay as well as infrastructure during these events, and we’ll be following up with an online survey at the conclusion of beta to collect even more of your thoughts. It’s important for us that you tell us how the game plays and feels! We take your feedback in combination with performance data from the game itself, and review it all in partnership with XLGAMES with a goal of constantly improving, to ensure the game is as good as possible for you when it goes live later this year!

We’re all very excited to see you all on the servers today and through the weekend!

The Trion Worlds ArcheAge Team

only 1 server for everyone to play on though? sitting around in 30+ minute queue sucks. guess i'll have to play after work

Maximillian
07-17-2014, 11:20 AM
You'd think, after so many mmo launches to learn from and with all the hype the game has been getting, they'd have been a bit better prepared for the numbers...everyone else in queue please quit ^_^

Voodeux
07-17-2014, 11:42 AM
Yea got down to 300 in queue after about 25 minutes for the game to crash :(

Still excited to get in though. Hope this give good server health data lol.

Looks like a second server is going up now.

5 minutes in i can't even log in to the game to select a server no fun for me

ciema17
07-17-2014, 11:57 AM
Well i was kicked out of the queue twice, now im just getting "Authentication failed" message so cant even get to server selection -_-

Irksomeness
07-17-2014, 12:01 PM
My experience so far...Screwy initialization probably something to do with the anti cheat that loads along with the splash screen. Everything worked even the the queue of 1500 and waiting for 30+ minutes. Disconnected by the gods. Log back in and see a second server up that has a blue box out to the right of it. Disconnected by the gods. Somewhere along the 24th try I think I've broken it as I can't even log in to the game now.

Any thing changes I'll report back here. Unless I get in then damn the forums full speed ahead!

Irksomeness
07-17-2014, 12:10 PM
I got server selection woot! And nifty Trion Red Door Opening splash screen was nice! I even got to watch a cut scene! But the gods told me to check my network status and any recent alerts! Anyone know where I would find an alert?

Woot! Glad the beta is finally here! One step closer to launch!

If I was in your office right now I'd shake everyone's hand for a job well done! Keep up the good work! I'll even throw in a pat on the back! :P

07-17-2014, 12:26 PM
I received the e-mail & alas, like others, I was confused as I thought it was a beta invite. Instead, it was a mass e-mail cheap shill, I reckon. Sorry to read about the problems others that are in the Beta are experiencing. First day of a new beta though, that's to be expected. Congratulations to anyone that did get in & hope you enjoy your playtime, regardless of stability.

If I manage to connect to the server... Do I win the game?

smartkid23
07-17-2014, 01:06 PM
I think that they should put up at least two more severs since they decided to invite so many people to play and since me plus so many other people can't even get into a server

No . . . but servers are currently showing "offline" so best of luck.

Error #1034
Could anyone please tell me how I could fix this, it is very annoying. I tried re-installing, restarting, restarting computer, blocking antivirus, blocking firewall, restarted router, it is working on my laptop and installed it very fast and easy but cannot be played on my laptop because of bad gpu. Thanks in advance.

Hey guys, as a founder I had been watching the live streams they said they would be giving the gliders at level 1 to the founders in beta an in headstart. Has something changed because I have been playing in the beta since it went up an still have not received the glider, just wandering what is going on an if it is being worked on sending or what not.

I don't think any one at trion can add, there are 2 servers for alpha because to many people in alpha and they're 5X more people that got the beta packages then alpha and through other websites they gave away over 50,000 beta invites... this shows me that Trion can't count or they don't know what they're doing. I don't know of any job where some one can screw up this bad and keep a job

Ninaca
07-18-2014, 02:06 AM
I wish they stop sending e-mail after e-mail with the beta announcement and not giving beta access, only to see pay options to get in.
No thanks!

Onera
07-18-2014, 06:23 AM
Yeah, exactly... I'm tired of them spamming about beta, and never gave me beta access, I've unsubscribed them from my e-mail... 4 months was enough, good luck with the game.

So it would seem to me unless you become a "founder" you can forget about beta testing! Talk about a money racket.

You will get your founders items upon 4-day headstart

Just an Idea for the development of the game, I love the character collision while in combat an pvp but as of running around in city's an camps trying to get quests or talk to any NPC is not easy. Just a base idea of having collision while out of city's and camps, but not while in them.

Doctor.Spanky
07-21-2014, 08:34 AM
Awesome environment. I really enjoyed running around and exploring everything in the first closed beta event. Can't wait for the next event! Thank you Trion for putting all of your hard work into such an awesome game-changing MMO. So many cool features in this game, and soo easy to get caught up in all the surroundings and the shiny newness of it all!

It was truly one of THE BEST MMORPG BETAS EVER!

I only got to lvl 16 on my bloodthrall but I SURE AS HELL had the most fun ever in my life!
Beautiful scenery and great game overall
The Jury/Judge/trial system in my opinion is VERY flawed though... Slander by the jury and judges sending people to prison for reasons without evidence.

You may have seen me as Yukimaro out there. Anyways... See you all on the next beta

Xardaz

I have no words for this event, thank you so much for this amazing weekend
this game totally makes the difference between all mmorpg out there....

i only got to lvl 25 but seriously i just cant wait for the next event or open beta

great job for all the people in charge of making this happen, thank you once again

and hope to see you all again!!

07-21-2014, 01:49 PM
First off, I had a blast!:cool: The game is awesome. But on the downside of things, I feel that the F2P model has to strict restrictions on the Labor points, in my oppinion F2p needs 2 labor every 5 minutes of offline time, There needs to be more loot drops and do away with the Labor cost to identify gear. and thats IT!-Thank you for the beta it was a whole lot of fun, my wife is in love with the game :p
