EU/US differences

- Free 2 Play
- Labor regeneration also for Free 2 Play
- Taxes via Tokens (?) so you can buy it in Cash Shop
- Fishing is in!
- 1.0 is in Internal Test soon, then they decide which 1.0 stuff is in.
- They think about Labor Potions, they will at least have CD. (12 Hours for now)

- We get Founder Packs where you can spent all your Money! (There you can buy into Beta)
- Alpha is in a couple of weeks

Every version of ArcheAge has this. I think it's only about differences here.

Don't forget that there are people like me, who haven't been on RU or original version.

No one that anything cares about.

Game has been out for a year in certain parts of the world, and they're acting like its hot news.

/facepalm.

Gonna watch this game closely, but cautiously, its management up to this point has much to prove

Just hope TRION does this well.
Looking forward to see more info.

I'm pleased witha ll the info honestly.

What they said about 1.0 was very respectable. Not only were they honest, but they're making decisions that will keep their playerbase.

I really really hope they can pull of a good start and won't mess up with 1.0 and f2p. We'll have to see how much "No tricks no traps" they provide in the end.

03-21-2014, 03:50 PM
They also said They'll try to follow the Rift monetary system as much as possible.

If Free to Play can build houses and farms it will kill the game fast.

I highly doubt they'd leave us in the dust, probably will work in a solution.

Can i just ask what the crack with 1.0 is? What changes have been made to the game that Trion have to consider leaving out? :)

I think they will manage it well, they seem to speak it well enough, I guess only the final product will tell us for sure. :)

Not having played the game and from just lurking there are some very Themepark Elements in 1.0 that the player base absolutly hate

Glad to finally hear some information coming about how they plan on handling 1.0 ( a bit ) and how they are going to run NA ArcheAge. I am kind of worried about the whole Labor Point system with everyone being able to regenerate them. Hopefully they will follow Ru model a bit with paid subscription going much faster than free to play.( I think this will deter making multiple accounts just for the labor points and taking up land. )

Tuckrain

your forgott this:

some features of 1.0 are allready ruled out as not convertable to the west (anny suggestions on that?)

If f2p Accounts will generate Labor Points offline, the economy will Crash within 2 weeks because everyone will create multiple Accounts!

Tres
03-21-2014, 04:02 PM
I don't think it'll crash per say but I'm sure they probably have some sort of fail safe in place to prevent abuse of accounts

With every multiple account a user creates, he/she will have to log that account/toon to do some crafting/harvesting, that is in my opinion something not many will be interested in, imagine logging in to 10 characters to harvest a few things? this could be very painful process.

That some who have played Archeage on Russian/Korean servers are very rude, some might say passionate but there is a fine line. I'm hoping there will be more of a bridge of understanding that many haven't played before and some relaxation watching the live stream would be nice cause I bet we can have one of the most supportive communities if we want to.

From what i understand from the stream you dont need premium to get a house

Vaiden
03-21-2014, 04:06 PM
Amen, Kiwi. There are folks (like myself) who are just learning about ArcheAge and it's not a good sight to see so many people being so obnoxious. Many of those people practically ruined all the other livestreams as well.

I'm sure those folks will fizzle out though.

Kiahoga
03-21-2014, 04:09 PM
From what i understand from the stream you dont need premium to get a house

but from watching the stream we also know that you'll either need to farm up the money to pay your property taxes with in-game currency, or pay it with real cash. so you not going to see one guy with 15 houses 15 pieces of land ect ect ect unless he wants to spend alot of time or has a bank roll.

There's probably more players who aren't that way that have played but fresh forums so.

Do we know if they will be selling the armors with buffed stats or the pay to win mounts?

I.E. from the Russian and Korean versions of the game.

i promise you, everyone will do this if f2p accounts Regenerate LP Points while offline.
No LP on Main? log on 2nd acc and go afk while crafting some hundred port Stones...
No Lp on 2nd? log on 3rd and steal the tree farm you found..
No lp on 3rd? log on 4rd and go plant and harvest some Cotton...

It's ok if f2p accounts Regenerate like 2 or 3 lp Points while online and only while online...

Palinore
03-21-2014, 04:14 PM
Maybe I missed it in the Stream, but did they say that F2P accounts will be able to generate LP even when logged out or will they not be able to generate when logged out? I'm curious to see how the economy will play out if F2P can generate LP at the same rate an individual with a Premium account can.

I will say the one thing that stood out to me was that they seem adamant about ensuring that the Theme-park qualities doesn't ruin the game for us. Hearing this brought a renewed hope for the Sandbox features as I've been patiently waiting for a game like this for awhile with these qualities. Trion if you are reading this, please continue to apply Sandbox features or even create Hardcore servers where it's completely a Sandbox. NA/EU is in desperate need for a game like this.

Has it been confirmed whether or not the Northern Continent will be part of release? I would assume so, however I do not like to make assumptions :)

"Actually", we learned a lot.

My only complaint with the stream is that new players--who don't know much about Archeage--didn't get to see normal ground combat. There's always youtube, but I hope they focus on that a bit, next time.

They said it several times toward the end, even gave away 2 alpha passes to a random twitch follower and stated that those people will have access to the alpha that starts in a few weeks. They also said they were waiting on a technical issue, can't remember off top of my head what it was exactly, but sounds like they are ready to get AA out the door asap.

Here it's the STREAM (http://www.twitch.tv/trionworlds/b/513058936) (skip to the last part for ArcheAge)

It seems that we will have 3 characters per account (based on the stream), right ?

03-21-2014, 05:54 PM
In the stream did they mention that you will be able to pay your taxes with real money?

And do we have to pay for the package...? .__.

Kuro Aka

As long as they don't take out the sandbox elements, or gate them in anyway. Only expand on them, and made even lessen the theme park game play. Trion should also know from Rift how important PvP, so they need to be adding more content on that side. If Trion does those things and does not just put 1.0 in as it is on the Korean servers, they game should be fine.

I don't mind it being f2p; I just hope there is enough stuff in the store to keep the game going while not breaking things. Maybe there will be a subscription option with some perks like the russian version.

Combat in this game is nothing special. It's not bad but it's nothing ground breaking either.

As with most games, I have no doubt will be letting people into CBT who don't pay for a founders pack, but if you like the game and they are reasonably priced I think founders is a great way to support the company and title.
