We’d like to say thanks for helping make our first ArcheAge Closed Beta Event, A Brighter Age (http://www.archeagegame.com/en/news/2014/07/archeage-closed-beta-starts-july-17/), a great success!

This was an important test. It was the first time our launch hardware and networks were load tested with real people, the first test for the new backend software integration present in our version of ArcheAge, the first load test for the store, and the first clean test of some of the gameplay westernizations in ArcheAge.

We’d like to share as many details with you as we can about what we were testing and how it all went.

"with real people"

I had to laugh. Are the alpha players not real people? Robots?!? xD Sorry.

That said, CBT1 was mainly a blast. :) I enjoyed myself immensely.

After playing archeage for the first beta, it is going to be a hard time for me if I don't manage a key or an invite.You know as a student, money is always a problem hahahaha.

Anyway hope to be lucky again and get a key, great job with the game and lets hope the launch isn't that far aways because its perfectly playable.

Good luck and peace!

They also said "our launch hardware and networks". I think they did say at some point that Alpha was not on the ame hardware as launch.

We expect it to be around three times as big as the first Closed Beta Event. We’ll have more invites for those of you who have signed up on the official ArcheAge website, and more giveaway keys than before.


Thanks for the info, Scapes. Does that mean a spot in CBT2 is pretty much guaranteed to players who were in CBT1?

Oh dear its going to get crazy around here again. They said more of we want in the store, that must be costumes. if not, riot!

The automated spam filter seemed to work pretty well actually during the event, congratz!

At least we know how long we have to wait. Wish it was quicker, but I do appreciate KNOWING. Info from you guys is very important to have.

When will Patch Notes go up? Will it be a small patch or a new full download?

Ketec
07-23-2014, 10:34 AM
Does the 3x more people mean that current beta players don't need a new key - or they still need ot get lucky on the laggy giveaways for us timezone that vanish in minutes?

Also will it be another f2p "test" - without major changes, i lost interest playing as f2p and cant go patron until it actually releases(founder is too expensive for me).

AA peeps, sorry for being a jerk on some of my post and thank u so much for listening/reading to our cries. indeed you do more actions and less words. kudos to you guys/gals at AA.

Gonna upgrade my founder tomorrow before we leave for dubai, btw i would like to know a few things...

1: If i upgrade my founder to archeum, will i be able to play on the so called alpha server?

2: will i get the remaining crystals that archeum pack gives? i wish i can coz i wanna try some stuff on item mall...

3: alpha and cbt server SHARES the account crystals right? so if i use 11.5K in alpha then i wont have anything left on both alpha and cbt server?

4: do i need to download another client after upgrading to archeum pack?

gonna post a printscreen tomorrow...so excited! Thanks everyone! looking forward for that LP fix lolz

First off, thanks for all the details! I love seeing some tech side of games that I'm enjoying :)

Grats on passing your first live load on the new servers!


"with real people"

I had to laugh. Are the alpha players not real people? Robots?!? xD Sorry.

That said, CBT1 was mainly a blast. :) I enjoyed myself immensely.

The dev/ops team likely means that they were using a new server farm that was separate from the one they're running alpha on. What this means is that they were likely running load tests with "dummy clients" connecting to the game servers, to ensure that they can handle the load.

For example, when my company gets ready to launch a new region/server farm, we often use thousands of dummy clients that generate the same amount of traffic and load that a normal player would. This usually lets us know that we can handle a specific number of players before we see problems. Sometimes real clients create different situations than load test clients, so this is an important distinction!

07-23-2014, 10:42 AM

no...

The reason this is asked is because we've had to redownload the full game a couple times in the past two weeks. Each time was a full download. So hopefully not this time because my service provider has warned me that I only have 30gb left for this month....

Actually, CBE1 invites do not grant future event access. However, we're greatly increasing the number of random-selected invites with this event.

Wonder if the credits can be refunded in between beta sessions so we can test out changes and such.. If not its no big deal..

Another question if someone actually buys credits will those credits also be added to the launch refund pool. mean I have 11k+ credits from my Alpha purchase.. If I spend extra money for more credits will they be added to my refunded credit total for launch ??

TY for your time.

Scapes

Early next week at the moment. Patching from CBE1 to CBE2 will NOT require a full client redownload.

3: Yes

4: No you can copy the beta client into the alpha folder. there are instructions on the forums

Since you guys are currently working on the store, is there any chance that you'll alter the way you purchase the glider images? I was pretty disappointed to find out that I needed 15 Reagents to use the image after purchasing it, which I no longer had enough credits to afford.

Thanks for the reply! I'm not saying that it shouldn't require it or anything like that, just that a prompt might be a good idea, a little warning saying 'you need X amount of whatever to use this' (since I don't recall seeing one). It would likely save your team from having to deal with credit refund requests from people who make the same mistake I did. If the game introduces the concept of altering item appearances to you at some point, I must've missed it.

Hi

You guys said that idle time will be 45 minutes. That's ok and i kind agree with it...
Now, what happen if i left computer crafting stuff, lets say 10k of "Shining Ocean Dream" potions...
Each 10 potions (1 craft) will take more or less 6 seconds sow 10k will take 6000 seconds.
6000 seconds it's equal to 100 minutes... Does that mean i will not be able to do all 10k potions, because i will be kicked out from server at 45 minutes ?

Thanks in advance

Alpha and Beta are 2 separate 20GB clients. So you need 40GB free to play both. Alpha is on an entirely different set of hardware then beta. And yes, upgrading will get you in the alpha servers

You can access the Alpha client by simply renaming the beta folder "alpha" and vice versa.
You can also just copy and paste the contents of one, into a folder titled 'alpha'

07-23-2014, 11:14 AM
Given how many people were in CBE1, and hopefully the same or more will take part in CBE2, will alpha/omega remain online again for CBE2 for those who opted to not roll again on beta?

Southernstar71
07-23-2014, 11:16 AM
Good question Rodr1c. I think quite a lot of Alpha/Omega people came over to Beta to recruit for Guilds. Wonder how the POP was on Alpha/Omega during and now after the Beta Event.

@Scapes- Beta key players receive an in game notice that they are patron's, but when they try to place farm's or houses they are told they are not patron players. Are there any plans to allow beta key (non founder) players to be able to test the land ownership system without having to purchase a founder's pack? It's really hard for beta key players to get the full experience of the game without being able to own their own farms.

So you're saying I could have moved files from my beta client download after upgrading to lessen the amount of bandwidth I'd have to use downloading the alpha client? Because who ever helped me out in the live chat said otherwise.

Thanks for the info Scapes, as it's greatly appreciated, but what do you mean by
With your input, we’re reviewing a number of systems with XLGAMES, including use of labor while you’re hunting and looting,

Are you saying you guys are considering charging us labor for looting in the future as well? :(

Not that big of a deal but it was an annoyance to have to download the entire 20 gigs again, especially living in Canada with my ♥♥♥♥ty download rate. What I find more annoying is that even after some prodding during my live chat with whatever person was assisting me, they were adamant that I had to redownload the ENTIRE client.

Thanks Scapes. Real nice of you to have been answering so many questions:) If you still feel like talking, do you want to comment on more profound concerns over the in-game economy? Have you discussed the matter or is it your consensus that with some minor tweaks everything is working as intended? Before launch it would be great to hear some broad plans over it. Mainly, if it is your full intent to have the economy sustainable in the spirit of sandboxes. Thx beforehand, if you do take the time to address my concerns.

Awesome! I brought my friends and guildmates into this game, here's some of our general feedback from our group of ~10 people:

Offline labor regeneration rates are lame, especially if you're not patron, it should be 10/10 for patron and 5/5 for freebie.. Not too sure why it has to be reduced when you're offline.

Not being able to claim land as a free player makes sense, there's always public farms or whatever for free players.. Or they can join a guild.. It'd be nice if they could place ONLY their 8x8 as a freebie, but not necessary. Would it be possible to add a free-player farm area maybe?

There were lots of graphical errors we were experiencing. I reported my problem with the insane black seizure my screen kept having, and it seems to be fixed now. However most of us would have problems with things not rendering as we played for longer periods of time. Textures would be super blurry even when our graphics were set to high. Certain areas would lag really hard too, specifically towns or highly populated areas.

The drop rate of salvageable gear, and therefore the access to moonlight, starlight, and sunlight archeum was amazingly limited. With the new crafting system being so much more difficult to level, this really sucks for anyone wanting to level up any type of armor or weapon crafting... Or even just to craft yourself a set of armor, honestly.

Aside from these things, and the other things I've mentioned in the emails I keep sending, the game is amazing! All my friends were upset when the weekend ended, and really want to play again. We look forward to the next beta, but even moreso to release!

<3

I was also wondering: My Patron status says it will expire August 12 or something.. Kind of hoping that it doesn't run out before all the beta testing is over. xD

The reason F2P can not have offline lp regen is because it would allow people to have unlimited LP by creating multiple free accounts. This would be exploited and ruin the in-game economy.

Couldn't help but notice that the Labor potion being only a character cooldown and not account cooldown is not being mentioned to XLgames. So is this how it will be? the highest spenders in the game have full labor always? Or will there be a balance patch to fix this problem.

This time, can you send invite for people who signed up on the website first before giving out keys so that we know if we need to get key or not. This is so that we don't waste invites and more people can test.

I know it's not related to the topic but I have some concern regarding labor potion. The thing is that I can use it on multiple characters of my account, so basicly it forces me to use 6x2 labor potions a day if I want to get max labor usage... Is this a bug? Please make the cooldown for account rather then for the character.

Great news and good work Trion keep it up.

But there is no news about EU servers. When do Trion plan to open Euro Servers?.

WTF are you talking about... there where 2 EU and 2 NA servers during CBT1... so wtf?

Read the forums all current server names and locations are posted on forums.

Of course that forces me to use 12 potions a day, since I don't want to some rich kid to get more labor then me, I would like them to fix that so you are able to use 2 bottles a day MAX

2- how many CBE is requird to start OBE ?

Beta was great for me as well. I learned a few tips and tactics, and got to test a few things that one can only test on a brand new server with no cross-server AH to help you out. Thank you! I do have a few questions about the next Beta:

1. Any word on whether or not Alpha will run concurrently with Beta for the next CBT?
2. Any long term plans on how many Betas there will be before OB and Launch?
3. Since there was so many people, are there plans to release more servers?

@everyone who is trying to turn this thread into a LP discussion, please take it to the correct thread? there are plenty to choose from.

So was the beta servers paused or are they still running? just curious incase i have to prepair my self if i have to see all my chickens dead :(

The beta servers are supposed to be paused between events, so no coming back to dead livestock, withered plants and dead trees.

@Scapes- Beta key players receive an in game notice that they are patron's, but when they try to place farm's or houses they are told they are not patron players. Are there any plans to allow beta key (non founder) players to be able to test the land ownership system without having to purchase a founder's pack? It's really hard for beta key players to get the full experience of the game without being able to own their own farms.

You're essentially a F2P player given early Beta access. Those who bought an Alpha or Beta pack are considered patrons. If you want to be considered one you'd need to purchase a pack also.

Hi

You guys said that idle time will be 45 minutes. That's ok and i kind agree with it...
Now, what happen if i left computer crafting stuff, lets say 10k of "Shining Ocean Dream" potions...
Each 10 potions (1 craft) will take more or less 6 seconds sow 10k will take 6000 seconds.
6000 seconds it's equal to 100 minutes... Does that mean i will not be able to do all 10k potions, because i will be kicked out from server at 45 minutes ?

Thanks in advance

The AFK-'kicker' distinguishes between those crafting, fishing, etc, as opposed to afk running in place, standing around, or riding your mount in circles.

Lanthrudar
07-23-2014, 02:07 PM
Good question Rodr1c. I think quite a lot of Alpha/Omega people came over to Beta to recruit for Guilds. Wonder how the POP was on Alpha/Omega during and now after the Beta Event.

Very empty and quiet. :D Of course, with the Beta events starting, a lot of Alpha players are slowing on their game time to relax and get ready for the events and actual headstart launch.

AshBash2805
07-23-2014, 02:10 PM
I know on release (or head start for the founders) that all the characters and everything will be wiped, but will the "saved appearance" still be there so you don't have to make your character all over again?"

Offline labor regeneration rates are lame, especially if you're not patron, it should be 10/10 for patron and 5/5 for freebie.. Not too sure why it has to be reduced when you're offline.

Not being able to claim land as a free player makes sense, there's always public farms or whatever for free players.. Or they can join a guild.. It'd be nice if they could place ONLY their 8x8 as a freebie, but not necessary. Would it be possible to add a free-player farm area maybe?

There were lots of graphical errors we were experiencing. I reported my problem with the insane black seizure my screen kept having, and it seems to be fixed now. However most of us would have problems with things not rendering as we played for longer periods of time. Textures would be super blurry even when our graphics were set to high. Certain areas would lag really hard too, specifically towns or highly populated areas.

1) Can't give free accounts offline labor regen, too exploitable since people can make dozens/hundreds of free accounts. This is also why granting all players X amount of labor on start, as opposed to starting at zero, is implemented. If all accounts started with labor, even something as small as 100, someone would create endless free accounts, join them to their famioly, and farm/craft the free labor, then delete the character. Rinse and repeat.
2) Can't give free players permanent land, also exploitable (see item #1)
3) There are public farms on the two main continents, including tree farms (one on each continent). The variety of things you can plant in each are limited, as are quantity, but they do exist, check your maps. :)
4) Graphical problems aren't new unfortunately. If you're not using SLI, swap down to DX9, it fixes a lot of problems. If using DX11, log off, clear your cache folder at: "...\Documents\ArcheAge\USER\shaders\cache" and the game will reload all textures when you log in again and fix the problem.

Agreed, this needs to be tied to account, not character. It would also be nice if tax certificates were account bound and not character bound, those purchased in the CS anyway.

those people who just got a beta key or invite and are not a founder dont have patron status, so they have not been able to build any house and will not loose anything.

how about nobody getting offline labour regen and everybody get the same online regen rate? I'm patron and I wouldn't mind this.

1~ I guess that makes sense, I didn't really consider that. Still, it kind of sucks, but I guess there isn't really any better way to work around it.
2~ Same as above.

Actually, CBE1 invites do not grant future event access. However, we're greatly increasing the number of random-selected invites with this event.

So does that mean if you got a beta key from CBE1 through giveaways and you get another key to CBE2 will you save your character's stuff or not? (PLEASE ANSWER)

Rich kids be like. "Shut the F up free players. My daddy owns your daddy so there." Screw you guys.

Now that I got that little rage out of the way. Some real questions that I would love to get answered.

1. Guilds, Will we be seeing more guild options and such in the next CBE or are they still working on it. I see the 2 greyed out tabs in my guild info area, so have no clue what options are hidden behind the grey. I would love more guild options tbh. A notice board and information area to start with would be great. That way we could keep our members up to date on what's going on as well as provide information on websites and TS3 info.
2. Could you post what's getting put into mirage island when you get that information? I thought the party boat was going to be part of the 1.2 build but it looks like it wasn't. Also thought the Leviathan was going to be in the 1.2 build (I've heard rumors of the Leviathan, or another legendary sea creature, being thrown into the mix alongside the kraken.

Giveaways are not controlled by Trion, only the amount is... all so giveaways are a SURPRISE, why would anybody announce it 5min before it happens, that's just stupid, and just don't mention EU... ppl crying where a minority... most ppl know how giveaway work and most ppl know there not entitled to it.

Game is mostly fine. Server stuff needed some work but was overall reliable. The main thing I think they have to figure out is drop rates for certain items and what they may do about labor points.

Not sure where you got this from, but they are not being strict about much of anything right now in game or in the forums. So definitely not what you want for sensitive types or young children. I read some rules somewhere and laughed because I haven't seen them practice anything they have written up. Just use the block feature and you'll be fine.

Kinda annoyed there will be more key giveaways when there is a bunch of us that paid (quite a bit) to be in the beta and it is not even always up.

So where exactly in founder pack it says your in BETA exclusively for your self and nobody via invite or key gets in? Can you act more elitist?
As for BETA up time... again read the forums... BETA was NEVER PLANED to be on 24/7 nor did they say anything about it, and the most important thing... STOP acting like this is a FINISHED product... IT'S NOT! Your in BETA to learn about the game, hopefully help Trion find gliches/bugs, suggest improvments, ect...

Only server which will be online 24/7 is the ALPHA server, IF they have enuf ppl in CBT's... if not ALPHA will be shut-down for duration of CBT's... again as said several times by now... try to read the actual forums and you'll find all the info you need, or rather TRY to find it... and then ask question... instead of just expecting something for your own gain -.-

afaik the close beta invite you get are a one time thing so when the CBT end for that key you dont get into the next beta....the founders key will give you access to all the beta slots(the highest payed pack will give you alpha right too.

Where did they state any LP fix?

read the article for this topic...(link is on page 1, post 1 !!!)


While you were playing, you were also giving us feedback on what you liked, and didn’t like, with our version of ArcheAge. We really appreciate all of the detailed feedback, both about things you liked and would like to see improved. With your input, we’re reviewing a number of systems with XLGAMES, including use of labor while you’re hunting and looting, labor regeneration rates for online and offline players, and the availability of Archeum. We’re also looking into the feasibility of XLGAMES adding an ability queue and mouse inverting.

just part of it... so yeah it's good news

oh that LP garbage, but still nothing about pumping labor pots on multiple characters on the same account.

As long as you see "beta event 2 invitation" or something of that nature in the glyph section of the site, you should be good to go for the next test. When I tried to get into closed beta test 1 I was given the same error, yet I could download the client and later log in just fine back on the 17th

AA peeps, sorry for being a jerk on some of my post and thank u so much for listening/reading to our cries. indeed you do more actions and less words. kudos to you guys/gals at AA.

Gonna upgrade my founder tomorrow before we leave for dubai, btw i would like to know a few things...

1: If i upgrade my founder to archeum, will i be able to play on the so called alpha server?
IF you upgrade to the 149.99 *USD* Pack yes you wil lbe able to play on the Alpha/Omega Servers.

2: will i get the remaining crystals that archeum pack gives? i wish i can coz i wanna try some stuff on item mall...

Someone said that the sent in an email/ticket and they got the rest of theirs. I originally had the larger pack so... Pretty sure they will give you the remainder.

3: alpha and cbt server SHARES the account crystals right? so if i use 11.5K in alpha then i wont have anything left on both alpha and cbt server?

Yes. If you use it all in Alpha then you have non in CBT. I actuall have bought 1 land pet and 3 gliders + 1 outfit and still have some left ;)

4: do i need to download another client after upgrading to archeum pack?

YOU will need to download the Alpha version (As you get both the Alpha/Betas)

gonna post a printscreen tomorrow...so excited! Thanks everyone! looking forward for that LP fix lolz

:D I have only started reading this thread so not sure if yours was answered yet! BUT if not there you go!



Question: is there a wipe between beta1 and 2? if so cool, if not what happens with those who are not invited back to 2? all thier houses and the like?

I didn't think they had houses. As they were considered.. "Free" players. (Pretty sure i saw many complaining about not being able to build as they game was considering them "free to play" players)


i got an inv from trion for beta 1 , this doesnt exclude me to get again an inv right? or else i have to get a key. want to play again at beta 2 so much :D

You need another key..unless you buy a founder pack.



if i was in last beta do i need another key?

Yep! You will need another key UNLESS you buy a founder pack!


So does that mean if you got a beta key from CBE1 through giveaways and you get another key to CBE2 will you save your character's stuff or not? (PLEASE ANSWER)

All characters carry over through the betas. So your character and all its items will be saved and should still be there!


overboard? spending $100 is already overboard? i wish u met my sister on farmville lolz


anyway, if they give us a better LP system, then i might buy additional 6 months patron on launch ^_~

also my sis will play this game too...i told her that its like open world pvp pve farmville... *_* <--u can significantly see the interest twinkling in her eyes!

NO! Do the YEAR one it saves you even more money in the long run! (Which i will actually be doing!)


I upgraded to Archeum yesterday. I did not receive any additional currency when I logged into the Alpha server.

I had the remainder of what I did not spend when I got the Silver package for Beta. :(

Is this a bug or to be expected?

I saw someone say the needed to contact support to get the remainder! Try that :D Gratz on the upgrade :D


Kinda annoyed there will be more key giveaways when there is a bunch of us that paid (quite a bit) to be in the beta and it is not even always up.

You paid for "Beta" and that's a CLOSED Beta EVENT they're holding... lasts only x amount of days hon! Many games do CB Events/CB/Open Beta THEN Launch.. (WHICH as a paying founder you get a 4 day headstart!) Keep that head up hon.. You paid to be here so you get some perks that the "key" players dont get later on! (UNLESS they decide to upgrade to founder!!! :D)

I am a little dissapointed how trion handle europe, I feel like we are just in the shadow of NA servers, why is the servers launching late evening in europe? last time delayed into the beggining of the night, I hope we will be treated better at launch

People calm down. Arche age is a HUGE project, trion needs time to adapt it both for NA and EU :)
I just hope they'll work hard and give us the possibility to play it with full-features ^_^
I think it's ok to wait for full-access :D
isn't it Trion?

For some reason I can't connect to the NA servers even though I'm in the NA. Though for some reason I can connect to Eu servers just fine, is there a way to fix this?
