ArcheAge's fourth Closed Beta Event (http://www.archeagegame.com/en/beta/) begins this week, starting Friday, August 22 at 10:00 AM PDT (GMT-7) and running until the same time on Wednesday, August 27! Players who participated in CBE3 will not need to redownload the entire game client, only an incremental patch to Build 4.6 which will be on our Alpha servers tomorrow.

New with this event, you can to choose to play ArcheAge in English, French, or German on any server! If you've played in a previous Closed Beta Event, your character will be waiting for you – in whatever language you choose. Your timers on crops and taxes are set to pick up right where they left off at the end of the last event. (To change the language in ArcheAge, just log in to your Glyph Client, go to “Settings”, click on “General”, and select the language that you would like.)

It's important to note that invites to CBE3 will not be valid for CBE4, but we are expecting that this event will be twice as large as the last event with even randomly-selected invitations for fans who signed up on the official ArcheAge website (http://www.archeagegame.com/en/register/). Partner site giveaways of CBE4 codes will begin Wednesday, August 20 at Alienware (http://www.alienwarearena.com), Razer (http://www.razerzone.com/), Rixty (http://www.rixty.com/), MMORPG.com (http://www.mmorpg.com/), PCGamesN (http://www.pcgamesn.com/), MMOHuts (http://mmohuts.com/), MMOGames (http://mmogames.com/), OnRPG (http://www.onrpg.com/). Additionally, our Alpha and Founder (http://www.archeagegame.com/en/shop/) players will have access to all of Beta.

Sweet! I just played in the closed beta 3 and wasn't expecting the next for at least another week. I'll probably try to get my hands on a key but I'm definitely looking forward to the official launch. Game felt pretty close to launch, other than voice overs, during CBE3.

One question.

@Scapes, i know that the invitation we had to the CBT 3 will not be valid, but the people that signed for the CBT 3 will have to sign in again for the CBT 4 or we're already signed and just need to wait for the email invitation?
Thanks in advance

Archeage staff and Scapes...thank you. Is there going to be an awesome contest for this one too? I could handle if the game doesn't come out as long as we keep doing contests. Usually a game keeps my attention for a couple months and then I'm like meh...but each time I hear about a beta, I get excited for the next contest.

Is this an 8GB patch (alpha says 8GB+ patch today) of language options for various new servers, or fixes that relate to crashes, and major known issues that each player has been encountering during the previous CBE3 weekend?

Let me clarify, I do not care about resetting of the UI or loss of hotkey placement, I'm talking about crashes, black-screens and other various BSOD's that players have been constantly plagued with.

I really truly hope its late September or October. If they release it on September 16th like everyone thinks, I think I will cry. Releasing it that soon and not giving a month in advance notice, like every other game, is painful. I can't plan my work around that on such short notice :(

Either way great work Trion with moving right along.

They're sending out 2x the invites, go to the sites they listed in the initial page and get one when they announce the dates... Me and some friends got additional ones for all our friends, and we're all Patron's, if we can get dozens of keys for our friends; you can easily obtain one for you.

Recommendation: Send out the CBE4 invites prior to the partner site giveaways. Last week i did not receive my invite until after I secured a partner site giveaway key. That CBE4 key was wasted and could have went to another person if I had received my invite prior to the partner site giveaway keys. If the partner sites giveaways are on the 20th then it would be nice to have an invite by the 19th or at least early morning on the 20th.

Couldn't agree more. With the date that everyone keeps saying it is or "thinking" it is, I have no hope of playing. I believe in rift, they announced it a month early, so I really hope that's what they do here!!

Lolz this announcement have a very good timing... i was about to buy a founder pack on another game before going to dubai.Good job in finishing the optional language and i do hope that OBT will come next.

Got a questions though...

when we will see changes for the LP system and quest item stuff?

Non patron players should still not get offline LP regen but increasing their LP cap to 3K and adding 5LP online regen (total 10LP/5min) would be nice. Patrons can have additional 5LP online regen (total of 15LP/5min online) and additional 5LP offline (total 10LP/offline). Thats not too much to ask anyway.

Still this is a great move to launch the next CBE faster than the previous 10days interval. The patch will also add a more complexity to the game.

Hope to see more good improvements on the ArcheAge horizon. Good job TRION & XLGames.

I heard ingame that there might be 'tweaks' in form of removal of LP cost on grading items. This means newbies don't have to waste LP grading the low level gears and quest rewards anymore.

A LP tweak is not enough to satisfy me as I look further than just 'slowing or pacing' progression. I see it as a accessibility and progression flaw in the game. It's too much a fatigue system designed to stop players from playing 24/7 and dying of heart attacks or starvation in South Korea.

Have the Labor 'Skill' system grow with the player. The higher your level, the increased labor skill you have. This applies to all players (f2p or patrons).
Level 1 = 5LP/5min @ 2000LP capacity. 0% LP efficiency use.
Level 5 = 5LP/5min @ 2500LP capacity. 5% LP efficiency use.
Level 10 = 10LP/5min @ 3000LP capacity. 5% LP efficiency use.
Level 15 = 10LP / 5min @ 3500LP capacity. 10% LP efficiency use.
Level 20 = 10LP / 5min @ 4000LP capacity. 10% LP efficiency use.
Level 30 = 15LP / 5min @ 5000LP capacity. 15% LP efficiency use.
Level 30 = 15LP / 5min @ 6000LP capacity. 15% LP efficiency use.
Level 50 = 20LP / 5min @ 8000LP capacity. 20% LP efficiency use.

*Patron status doesn't add the LP/min rate for ingame, but now adds half the level's LP/min to offline status. A good idea is to make use of beds to enable this when you go offline.
This means at level 50 you get 10LP/5min offline when you sleep in a bed, alongside with the bonuses the quality of the bed gives.

So: Patron = Adding offline LP gain!

LP Efficiency is a small discount to LP consuming activities like crafting a 100LP item.
This is because it consumes 5LP to make each unit of materials, then a 100LP to craft the actual item.

I am more concerned about drop rates then I m about LP.. That's not to say I wouldn't mind a slight boost to the rate at which LP regens.. ATM LP and the workers compensation potions are the only things that are making this game feel like its P2W..

I can mine all day but the LP always runs out, and it's also not enough to craft either.:eek:

you're not supposed to be able to mine 24/7 in this game.

Also for example on alpha with 20/5 I'm finding it impossible to get bellow 2k LP and I have 4 large farms and a manor where I grow trees....
So yes at alpha I'm forced to use some of my LP on tax certificates to keep me from staying at 5000 cap for too long.

I am not looking for easy to be honest .. I am also not looking to pay 7 to 10 gold each for a moonlight dust . That was the average price for 1 on the new Beta server that launched. This server's auction house was not linked with the other servers btw... I hope they got the info they needed by doing that ..

Please, stop making comments about LP, I am sure that most of founders are growing tired of this subject.
LP system is perfect, though archeum may need about 150% increase in finding them.

P2W? yeh, tell me when I can slash your whole group with non-patron status account.

It's more like "pay if you want to experience the game in full." You morons...

im really glad i do not have to wait 2 weeks, but if incase this is the last before open beta i was curious on when it does start will we be able to purchase patron status?? i would expect open beta to at least be a month long so it would be really nice if this was possible. i am one who would love to be able tp purchase a founder pack, but unfortunately cannot afford to do so being that im a full time college student that pays for pretty much everything for school with absolutely no help from anyone. there is no way i can drop $50 , however if i skip a few lunches and/or dinners i could easily afford the $15 for patron status. so i know you cannot tell if if/when open beta is, but would we be able to purchase patron for it?

Your question is confusing as a mother father...
If you are not a founder, purchase the patron status when the game is released. Beta is just a beta...
You play the game as free-to-play status.

@Lannister , you are clownshoes sir.. I am a founder lol.. And if you are a non-patron you couldn't even slash my horse let alone my group..

OK this last beta session I and my guild rolled on a brand new server.. I am a founder so I am a Patron.. In 4 days I have a completed house , small and large farm, and a harpoon clipper. I have a lvl 50 shadowblade, and I also all ready have a T-1 Hasla weapon from solo farming tokens.. I am willing to bet no non-patron can claim to have been this productive in 4 days.. Again I am not saying there shouldn't be a slight gap between patrons and F2P people.. But the system as it is today is clearly 100% P2W. I paid , and in 4 days I won.. This of coarse goes against everything that Trion promised this game would be...

Yep. I would rather they be subbed if I can't sell on AH and LP is so much harder at non-patron. I understand the ability to build given from patron status because of the overcrowded-ness of a f2p game and limited space to build...

It feels too much like a Rift model imo, but it is Trion.. At least help boost LP(will talk about it till it's better) to allow non-patrons a chance to make a dent if they "work harder" and not "pay more".

Keep up the good work any news on official release yet ?

AnthWolf
08-19-2014, 12:48 AM
That would be telling.

I'm unsure why it's such a difficult thing to announce a release date, even a guessimate one?

I'm sure Trion have a timetable they are following for these Closed Beta Events, then going into Open Beta and then finally into Live and unless there's a major fault they find when they need to go back to XL Games and say "Fix it!", then right now as is, why can't we know their most likely release?

I know things "could" go wrong, and it wouldn't be that I'd be holding their response as gospel and raging when it didn't come to pass since things may and (hopefully not) go wrong and need a pushback, but I think this is the first MMO I've been greatly looking forward to and enjoying in Alpha and Beta that the Publisher hasn't been clear as to their intentions and just giving a "sometime in 2014" answer.

Note: And it's a selfish reason I ask, I just want a official response with a date since I want to book hols in at work so I can spend more time in your game. It's sad perhaps but that's how much I want to be able to get in and play it.

Thanks for all that good work archeage team. I was already missing playing this game a minute after the end of CBE3, so having a CBE4 only 4 days after make me so happy.

I have just one question conserning the OPB : will there be a wype befor it start, or we, CBE testers, will keep our progressions from the CBE ?

I really truly hope its late September or October. If they release it on September 16th like everyone thinks, I think I will cry. Releasing it that soon and not giving a month in advance notice, like every other game, is painful. I can't plan my work around that on such short notice :(

Either way great work Trion with moving right along.

i fully agree hard get time off with such short notace

Firstly I would like to say I've been following this game since the Korean launch. I chewed my finger nails to bits waiting to play. I even tried downloading the Korean version to find it unplayable. I then Tried the Russian one only to find that they stopped "westerners" from playing there too. Then Trion (You wonderful people) took up the project. I have watched and I waited until I could afford the Archeum Founder's pack, this was 5 days before the Second Beta.

After almost 3 days of trying to install (over 3 download and install attempts) I finally managed to get it working. I played for 5 minutes. I fell in love. I've played in CBE2 and CBE3 I am looking forward to CBE4. I have drooled over that silly things you can do ingame. Formed a guild with a few friends I have made while playing (Tyranny and Baked Goods, on Eanna Beta server). I've sailed the seas in a clipper and found lost treasures.

But now to the point of my post... Trion, RELEASE THE GAME!!! I know everything is going to get reset. Its going to kill me to see my characters as they are go into gaming oblivion. I want to start playing for real in a world where every building site is not taken. Where I can start laying the foundations for my Guilds Base.

I know game company's like to keep there gamer's in suspense, but this to me has been murderous for the game I've waited over a year to play. Please Trion I beg of you not only for my own sanity but also the sanity of EVERYONE who wants to play this game. RELEASE

"It's important to note that invites to CBE3 will not be valid for CBE4" This is going to really suck for alot of people if they don't get into CB4 after playing CB3... including me =(

Its really easy to get a key man... just watch streams of players playing Alpha on Twitch.tv on Wednesday and there will be plenty of people mentioning sites with thousands of key give aways that you can get by simply registering on a site and they send the key in an email shortly after. OR... you can look for yourself on the sites mentioned.

I keep a spreadsheet and graph of key component and prices.

The average price for 1x Moonlight Arecheum dust was 1g 50s on Shatigon. This was taken from 24 auctioneer readings in 12 hours over 2 days.

If indeed it was 7g, this is merely just a spike for a new item appearing on the market. In 2 weeks'ish (total up time of shatigon) these prices have normalised to nearly a 78.57% price fall.

I am extremely upset, after getting my Archeum pack and playing Alpha for only 5 minutes, the next time I logged in I had been temporarily banned because my account had been compromised! Someone tried to hack me and now I have been banned for over a week, and I missed the ENTIRE closed beta 3! Why am I being punished for someone else trying to hack me? I sent in a ticket and everything days before closed beta 3 started, they had even emailed me back saying my account was verified but I am still banned.

Will I least be unbanned before this next closed beta? Or am I going to miss out on everything?

Why won't you just separate the servers by language? Please tell me you will in the official launch.
Just put the language tags DE, EN, ES, etc.
This way we'll avoid people spamming faction chat with their unique conversation, which they don't want to take it to whisper for some stupid reason I don't understand. And then a classic troll comes and starts a racism war.

I don't think that's the problem. The problem is that no one wants to see their server overrun with "HUEHUEHUE" Brazilians and "сука" spewing slavs.

It's not that people speak other languages aren't wanted, it's that the community becomes flooded with the undesirable element from them. All Points Bulletin was for instance, over-run with Russians on the NA servers. They were found to be the most likely to be running some sort of hack program.

Aion was consumed by BR players and guilds who ran the community into the ground rather quickly. It would be best if there are servers outlined so these people congregate there. Those who want to play the game normally and not make an ♥♥♥ of themselves and those around them would be more than welcome to come to different servers instead.

im with you

Possibly because the US has the population of almost the entire EU? And understand that this game requires a lot of people to be fully enjoyed, the maps are massive, Auroria alone has multiple guard towers that require a 100 people to defend and attack. Not to mention a giant sea and a large economy to run based on population. Also this is Beta not everyone can get full access therefore it is hard to make an entire fully playable server just from one Nations players.

Also in regards of people spamming faction chat, that thing goes both ways. If i recall in CBT3 English speakers spoke mostly in the Alliance chat (incorrectly mislabeled Faction) and Germans and the French mainly spoke in the Nation chat (Incorrectly mislabeled Alliance).

I've always found playing with folks from other countries quite interesting, tbh. Made great friends in several countries, talked all sorts of things foods, music, recipes...great times. I like to play on EU times, so I generally had some EU players in my guild.

As to the US having their own server and EU being stuffed together, I'd guess that might be due to server population density: ie. Population of the Country of Norway, approx 5 Million; Population of the Houston Metro area alone is over 6 Million people. ;)

Yeah, how about no.

Do you know how much it takes money to keep servers up and running?
Do you have statistics how many players play from different countries?
Do you think, if let's say ES server is less populated than EN server, people wouldn't go there. Less people stealing crops, PKing or pirating? Or other way around players from ES would think there are not enough population to play with so they would move to EN server.

Putting items in different boxes work, putting humans does not.

There is about one sollution to this problem. Deal with it! If somebody talks german/spain/france or what ever, don't pay any attention to it. They don't speak it forever.

I spoke and will speak Finnish in the Alliance chat. Not much but i will do it. Just because finding other Finns are easier to find that way.

08-19-2014, 11:48 AM
About the language. People should always speak english in general/faction chat. It's the most universally understood language in this world and it isn't about race or politics, but practicality. If you run into a player of your own nationality you should take the convo to a private channel. It's polite. If you can't be considerate towards other players what hope is there for you to A. Find a guild? B. Not get blocked by most players? C. Generally make any new friends ingame?
Diversity and making new friends is the most coolest thing about new MMO's.

This of coarse goes against everything that Trion promised this game would be...

Who did you win by doing this?

I would say its Pay to be productive because free to play CAN get to lvl 50, get same gear as you and kick your butt in pvp. There is no race who gets house first, or who has largest farm. P2W comes up when you can purchase items that are more powerfull than F2P items and F2P players cannot use them.

Next on crying why F2P cannot have farms. Reason is simple. So people doesn't create 100 alt accounts and fill all the farms in first hour when servers get up. If you have better idea how to keep people abusing the system feel free to tell it to us.

Not saying that people wont do couple accounts and purchase patron on both and use on just for farming, no. If they have money and want to do it, they will do it. Just that less people will do it this way.

There aren't a lot of sweeping changes that need to be made. Mostly they're just updating translation type stuff. The typical lifecycle of a hastily released new MMO doesn't apply too well here.

Actually, Americans and Canadians have to share servers.
Also have to share them with New Zealanders and Australians

I love how every post that mentions the LP system and drop rates get skipped by our CM.. I bet the next stream will show them saying how everything is so perfect and going according to plan.. Not to mention 900 mb translation patches that address neither problem..

I love this game .. Or I should say the idea of it.. I really just want to know what is going to be done about drop rates and the LP system if anything.. I hope these issues get some attention soon and stop getting skipped .. Then maybe we wouldn't have 100 new threads on the topic everyday.. I guess if ya fix the drop rates then the LP system wont matter so much. As it stands you need to blow alot of labor to harvest stone and logs ( most in demand items ) in order to afford the 6 -7 gold people want for a single moonlight dust, and 9 to 10 gold for sunlight dust .. We wont even get into the cost of shards and crystals.. I mean the drop rates alone kinda make this game P2W if ya think about it.. Would take a non patron a month to chop enough trees to buy a handful of dusts in the current state..

Who did you win by doing this?

I would say its Pay to be productive because free to play CAN get to lvl 50, get same gear as you and kick your butt in pvp. There is no race who gets house first, or who has largest farm. P2W comes up when you can purchase items that are more powerfull than F2P items and F2P players cannot use them.

Next on crying why F2P cannot have farms. Reason is simple. So people doesn't create 100 alt accounts and fill all the farms in first hour when servers get up. If you have better idea how to keep people abusing the system feel free to tell it to us.

Not saying that people wont do couple accounts and purchase patron on both and use on just for farming, no. If they have money and want to do it, they will do it. Just that less people will do it this way.

but why dont the dev dont give the f2p some mobility in farming i cant evan put a scarecrow and public farms will be full and maybe not with f2p players ,anyways why dont let players with free account at least using a scarecrow or maybe change the game that f2p players can use some <<instance>> where is a little spot for farming in that way it will not be so crowded,that will be very cool;)

Would work, but then yeilds woud need to be adjusted. Because that wouldn't remove the problem people doing multiple accounts. For example if somebody saw that item X has very high demand, but low supply (aka high price) he could make f2p account, measure how much time it takes to plant the crops and after they have grown harvesting them, then he could take that time and calculate how many plants he can plant before the ones he spawned first are fully grown and can be harvested. then harvest the first plants, and second and so on to nth plant. Also replanting crops while collecting them. This way he could possibly just keep planting and harvesting crops and maling them to single account for selling purposes thus removing need of waiting for crops to grow. That again would mean high supply and as demand would go down prices drop and so-on.

There really is no easy answer to this. Think of real life. Most of us don't have any room to plant crops, and if we do its just a little. Havent once heard about somebody who is living in a flat and growing everything he needs to live. Then there is farmers who produce tons of crop to feed alot of people. If everybody could grow their own food, there wouldn't be need for farmers.

Things like these are really hard for developers.

I understand its goin to be anoying to be a F2P at first when server launches, not able to produce own crops and prices are high but later in the game, there are alot of patrons doing farming for the purpose of selling them on AH for those F2P players. Who have collected money by grinding and so-on.

But what you can do, if you have friends playing. Gather some money and buy patron for one account everybody can use.

I get the same message, but I think it is because we need to be able to play (i.e. be invited or register a beta key online) to access the update.
So I guess we have to wait and see if/when we get a beta key/email invitation... Patience, patience ^^

Trouble accessing the forums and the update to the game
Keep getting this when refreshing the forums:

Morrigana, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

However I refresh the page and im back in the forums. Getting error 2020 when trying update the game. I think these two issues are related something to do with the authentication on the servers.... Adding information. I open the cilent. I see under list archeage offline then switch to update red button. I then click red button then see in grey offline then switch to update both in grey before the update button turns red again then error 2020.
