Founders, you've seen it for yourselves: the population on ArcheAge's initial Head Start (http://www.archeagegame.com/en/news/2014/09/archeage-head-start/) servers has been burgeoning! We're excited to announce that two new servers are being added during Head Start due to overwhelming demand. Inoch is our new North American server and will be added to the Auction House 1 cluster. Aier is our new European server and will be added to the Auction House 3 cluster.

These new servers will be brought online and available to play today: Monday September 15 at 10:30 AM PDT (GMT-7). See you in ArcheAge, Founders!

NOTE: If you have difficulty seeing or connecting to one of the new servers, try logging into an existing character first.

Can't you guys just extend more slots of each server? ( i mean seriously how many slots are in each server? \ I'm curious... )

And again thanks for your hard work Scapes! 3< ( and also the team )

I used to think we would need 2 servers to resolve this issue. Now I think we'll need closer to another 6 at the very least. But something is better than nothing. Thanks Scapes.

Nice - thank you. I agree there should probably be more based on week 1's turn out.
Maybe have an extra one waiting for tomorrow.

Any word on what time we can officially download?

Better late than never, but I don't know what one server is going to help with along with all the time already lost to people. Is there any compensation going on for people that could not play or barely got a chance to due to long queues?

Either way thanks for getting another server up. Kyrios has been flooded since the start of Head start .-.

Good that they did it today before the game's released so that people who missed out on prime spots can have a go at a bit of a land grab before tomorrow.

Without housing limits, how does this solve the problem of land claim exactly? Someone who may be unhappy with their current house location will try their luck on the new server and it'll be the same problem all over again. What about those (such as myself) who never got a house placed at all?

You can't get a transfer of a character. You MIGHT be able to have your character deleted and refund certain purchases if you were one of the few who was never able to claim a house plot. Good luck.

If people are looking for a sever that is not too crazy with queue's, Naima hasn't been bad for most of the headstart. It has occasionally had brief queue's, but I have yet to wait longer than 10 minutes. I really don't want them to go too crazy with adding new servers, as the population of all games diminishes at least a bit after launch.

Im just wondering how many players will come to this new server just to place a house as fast possible to save spot and than keep playing on the other servers.:mad:

Without transfer there's no point, I've already spent like half my founders pack credits on this character, why would I start brand new on another server o.O

I would like it so that I could have my founder account reverted back to prior login so that I can have a fresh start on the new server without losing my items from my founder pack.

Will that happen? Not Likely...

Um, that is the question - why would you start brand new char? Someone force you? New server is for YOU to make new char?

Honestly, I would be fine with that. I am more worried about gilda stars and shop points than anything else. I have my characters look saved and it shouldn't be hard to get the name back. Grind would be unfortunate but...meh.

The problem is now that we have been playing for 3 days we have characters on the queued servers and we only gett Patron rewards for the first 6 characters. So starting a new character in the new servers would mean deleteing a character and if you used all your 6 characters already now its to late to get your Patron perks on the new one. So all the patrons on the cluster servers will be SOL as this whole Headstart has been nothing but crap for the people that supported this game the most. Still nothing stated about compensation for this as well. What a total scam Trion has run here. I personally will never buy from this company again and Im requesting a refund. Not only this but they wait until half of the Patrons are back at work to put new servers up so we get screwed out of land once again. I really want to know how this company thinks this is going to be good for those of us that were already screwed by them?

Yeah and with the new rule that only the first 6 chars get the founder items, its even more ♥♥♥♥ty to join the new server.

They should have added more servers to begin with. They should have been able to see how many ppl had the founder edition and add atleast the same amount for free to play players. Like one server would fix this mess. Queue's will only get bigger.

Because its a company that has no idea how to run a release properly. They screw over a ton of patrons and then do not even state there will be compensation they just go ahead like there is nothing wrong and pretend that opening 1 new server at the ♥♥♥ end of Head start will be enough. What a joke.

This just saddens me... Really on the last day of head start? Where majority of us spent credits on our character, you pop up another server on the last day? Money grab Trion? Are you trying to make us spend some money for credit that we used up on other server?

We founder should at least get a free character transfer, and what about the founder items? What is the reason to limit the founder items such as the glider and costume to 6 character? Daru chest I understand that should be limited, but the founder items? Such a big waste of money I have spent this year and feel scammed by Trion...

AntuanCross
09-15-2014, 10:36 AM
Yes, Trion waited waaay too long to open the server. But;

Just go through the easy ♥♥♥ quests, get your GSs and place down a house, the items or whatever apparently weren't worth all that much since all I have been seeing is people complaining about the 4 day head start.. here is your head start. There is just no pleasing some people.

Gravity
09-15-2014, 10:36 AM
So you announce a new server with a little over an hour for people to prep and organize for it? That rocks Trion, sound decision there

Hawkril
09-15-2014, 10:36 AM
The Korean version has around 25 servers (granted it has been out over a year) and with the number of founders packs purchased (I don't know the numbers but seeing every server with a queue on Friday tells me that there was a lot) you would think that on head start there would be more then 6 servers in the US version. There was a queue of roughly two thousand people Friday on Ollo and if you assume there was roughly the same on every server... that's 12 thousand people unable to play. I can understand that Trion wouldn't want deserted servers but on the other hand I can't see how jam packed servers are any better.

Scapes,

Guys, I've worked in IT for a very long time and if this was a project my guys were delivering they'd be getting the unholiest of ♥♥♥-kickings right now, and there would probably be at least one person heading for the door.

We paid for a head start and we haven't had it, most of our time's been spent queueing or relogging. DDOS aside you knew there wasn't enough server estate to cope.

We've had to waste the credits we were given to get the items we should have been sent anyway. I seriously doubt the DDOS had anything to do with this.

Because of the delays there's a core of landgrabbers who have ruined the initial 4 servers, There's no land available in any of the zones I've got to so far (about lvl 22).

Where the hell are your GMs?? The racist, sexist, xenophobic and generally threatening language on the servers is appalling. There are several players who should just be banned now, but there's not even anyone giving them a GM based slap, and no simple mechanism for reporting it either.

This is the worst customer experience I've seen in a long time.

LOL yeah they have only 3 million people signed up for beta and they have only a fraction of that in right now so I think they are going ot have a BIG problem tomorrow since as usual they will not be prepared as they have proven here. Obviously the BETA and ALPHA was not enough to help this company release a 2 year old game that they knew how many people to expect on day one of Head start and now they have a unknown amount about to destry their puny server bank. Then we will get the Oh we had no idea this game was that popular.

09-15-2014, 10:39 AM
Not really they only added 2 servers they must not be expecting much more traffic.
honestly, anyone who's just joining into the game is going to have a tough time finding housing/farming slots because not enough servers were opened initially. And continuing to add more servers is not going to balance that, because the beginning servers will always be too packed.. people who have spent $150 have been having issues.. what chance do newer subscribers have? Frankly only thing that could possibly fix it; besides opening up the northern region, is to expand the size of the land mass itself or add 'a lot' more housing areas. I also really think how RU made it so that you had to turn in your small farm to get your large farm really helped things as well.

The new server should be for EVERYONE, not a select few that meet the criteria. I would delete these character instantly and go to a fresh new server if I could, but I cannot since it will take 24 to 72hour to get my character deleted. They should have just told us in advance that they were planning to open X server.

edit: I guess I will delete all my character and gamble on them adding new server for F2P so I can be ready.

Give the Daru chest one per account per server and people might actually think of switching servers.

Toan
09-15-2014, 10:50 AM
If you plan to make a new character on the new servers but already have 2-4 on old servers(depends on how many character slots you expanded) you need to expand your character slot limit again, the 6 characters for servers overall, still applies, but you start with 2 characters total for all servers added together, if you want 6, that's 4k credits worth of character slot expansions.

Fortrek
09-15-2014, 10:52 AM
This community makes me sick.

Just because there is a new server doesn't mean you need to go for it!! They will not close current servers :mad:

If they don't release a new server = Cry because need more servers.
If they release a new server = Cry because you'r playing on one server and can't go to another.

Its just impossible to make you happy.

NJ Trion, you waited time enough to see if a new server was really necessary and add only 1 at a time. Point for it!

One question: When will the grace time for reconnect be added? This is the only real killer of game right now...

Scrabba
09-15-2014, 10:53 AM
The problem is they are trying quick fix to solve the issue. They should offer a head start to founders on any server they open up, then public gets access after that. They should allow for character migration if you do not own property.

One question: When will the grace time for reconnect be added? This is the only real killer of game right now...
This would be nice to know and have added because I know plenty of people who get in after a long queue and get d/ced like 5-10mins later and have to go straight to the hour long queue again.

Based on what they have said before in the live streams, Its 2 per server with a total of 6. So yes you can make a new character on the new server w/o having to pay for it.

Heres how to get to the new server for those who dont wanna lose their founder items and levels.


First if you need a free slot, delete your lowest alt (transfer all its gear to your main first)

Make a alt in new server, rush and claim land.

Wait for server transfers to be implemented post launch.

When its rdy sell up your stuff and transfer your mains over without losing any founder perks.

Unable to create characters on Inoch.

I only have two characters on Ollo currently, thus not at the 6 per account limit but am unable to connect to Inoch to create characters.

Are these new servers intended for F2P players only?

Great, two new servers and no way to transfer characters. All this means is the players that are already screwed on the full servers will remain to be screwed whilst new players get new servers. That's all the head start players at a disadvantage then :/.

The base limit is 2 in total. You may purchase market place upgrades to raise it to 6. Or delete one from ollo.

While I can applaud you for trying to fix the very clear population issues, the point of paying for a headstart (for some of us) was to rush and get land before it ran out. By creating a new server this late into headstart, you are really giving that benefit to those who didn't pay for the game. It seems like the right choice would be to allow characters to transfer to the new server, or at least refund credits if they want to restart.

Otherwise many people who dumped tons of time into the game are going to opt to staying, and the new server will be mostly unpopulated until the F2P/non founders join.

Its kind of a kick in the nuts to those who paid :-(

Scapes,

Guys, I've worked in IT for a very long time and if this was a project my guys were delivering they'd be getting the unholiest of ♥♥♥-kickings right now, and there would probably be at least one person heading for the door.

We paid for a head start and we haven't had it, most of our time's been spent queueing or relogging. DDOS aside you knew there wasn't enough server estate to cope.

We've had to waste the credits we were given to get the items we should have been sent anyway. I seriously doubt the DDOS had anything to do with this.

Because of the delays there's a core of landgrabbers who have ruined the initial 4 servers, There's no land available in any of the zones I've got to so far (about lvl 22).

Where the hell are your GMs?? The racist, sexist, xenophobic and generally threatening language on the servers is appalling. There are several players who should just be banned now, but there's not even anyone giving them a GM based slap, and no simple mechanism for reporting it either.

This is the worst customer experience I've seen in a long time.

Scapes said months ago in alpha that Archeage is not going to be policed.

The game has been on for 3 days and people already have full character slots... Don't blame Trion for your greedy practices. If you went ahead and filled up your slots in 3 days it's your own damn fault.

AnonymouseRage
09-15-2014, 11:10 AM
I'm free to play so it would not effect me.
but they should give all founders or players who payed 50 ~ 150 for head start a token to expand there character slots.
This way if they already maxed them out they can just sell the item in game.
another note:
But from what I have seen so far with this game, Trion is trying to play the safe card and not mess up like they did with rift's way to many servers.
Trion I must say this, you failed bad. I think you did a worse job this time around. And once the free to play players come. You will just be back where you were and/or worse.
In the end if you fail to do anything to accommodate the non- early access player base, Allot of revenue will be tossed away.
I plan to subscribe, But ONLY if I can even log in. I fear however you just do not care. You have your money. So limit how much more you invest.

This is smart, if this gets super crowded for a longer time than the initial over crowding, they will probably add more, let them test the waters, they are the ones investing, you don't want them adding 6, then picking one that becomes barren, then complaining that it's a wasteland.

LOL yeah they have only 3 million people signed up for beta and they have only a fraction of that in right now so I think they are going ot have a BIG problem tomorrow since as usual they will not be prepared as they have proven here. Obviously the BETA and ALPHA was not enough to help this company release a 2 year old game that they knew how many people to expect on day one of Head start and now they have a unknown amount about to destry their puny server bank. Then we will get the Oh we had no idea this game was that popular.

i agree on the popularity for every 1 founder for a fact 5 people will follow. like Riot and other games they know the real revenue comes from volume of players vs small volume. It's how neverwinter failed trying to exploit a business model for a smaller population and didn't allow it to grow/evolve well.

Did Trion change the character creation rules during Head-Start?

Initially you could create 2 per server up to a maximum of 6 total and had to pay for the 3rd and 4th slots on a server.

Now the loading screen states "You can create 2 characters across all servers and purchase up to 4 additional slots for a total of 6 characters"

Reason I am asking is I like other pissed players tried to log onto Inoch to create characters, but since I have 2 on Ollo the connect button is greyed out for all other servers.

Did u ever hear something of a Char transfer ? , did u know that a Char is only a small File in an Directory on the server that can be easy copyed to any other server if u want ?, the only what not work is to take your houses with but your Char and all his inventory and instanced Stuff u can theoreticly transfer in a few seconds to any server u want , if Archeage RUS and Archeage Korea will be connect with Trion u can transfer all your chars from there to here how u want, technically this is absolutly possible. If u have the server software and get connection to the trion server u can also simply "copy" your Char from there to your private home server.

this is dog logic...

you open up ONE server and we still have 2.5k player queues at prime time. New server also about to hit queue...

How do you expect f2p players to enter the game if patrons can't???? IT WILL BE MADNESS...

And what logic is that you do not provide character transfers? Charge it modestly but do it or give all perks for all created characters (as it should be.. .we payed of em.. didn't we??!)!!!!!!!!

You should fire half of the staff due to this head start fiasco!

1 day of downtime, 24h of queue with non stop crashes to play few hours... 3rd day into headstart

just got disconnected from kyprosa again. 3h queue now... awesome stuff
You know I would actually change to the new server even though I already reached lvl 36 and it would be quite annoying. But the thing that is stopping me is that I wont get the items I bought from the store on my new character(I bought a glider cause the founders one sucks). And that with f2p launch the ONE new server will be full instantly aswell....

Friends, allies, enemies.

You knew exactly what was coming. EXACTLY. If you have never done an MMO launch before, well, you did now. This stuff happens ALL THE TIME. Trion even gave you a new server for land grab DURING headstart. I didn't expect it till tomorrow. WHY would you make multiple characters when you can't even place a house? Unless you already have one, or several. What from the shop could you possibly need to use all your credits? I rushed 2 small houses and a small scarecrow. I had the 50$ founders pack. I STILL have 1.65k credit since the only thing you NEED to buy is tax certs.

Assume there will be new servers opening tomorrow. Assume that the majority of the F2P players will NOT immediately be patrons, giving you another opportunity to land grab. There was a forum post saying you will only be allowed 2 characters without paying, after being UNABLE to place a plot, why would you make another toon? I would have deleted my second toon immediately and prep for the next land grab.

I did not play during alpha or beta, and I still got a house. In fact, I got a thatched farmhouse as well as 2 scarecrows. How you ask? When hundreds, nigh thousands, of people are posting about how they have a strategy for housing on day one, it would be a good assumption that levelling can wait. How many of you that played during alpha and beta KNEW exactly what you needed to do to place a house?

To the people who have been totally unable to place due to them not being able to log on during the first hour of head start: I feel for you. I do. If you are on tahyong I know a few spots that were still available (west). Friend me in game or PM me here, ingame is fierin. Please understand the cost of the farmhouse (which many people rushed): 3k raw stone, 1.5k iron ore, 1.5k logs. Calculate the labor cost. Please remember how many people are going to jump ship because they MAY possibly get a better location. I opted for a PvP zone as a home, and I don't mind it. Even as a newb.

This should not be a rage thread. Everyone should be happy that Trion COMPLETELY ADDED TWO SERVERS IN 2 DAYS. thats a 20% increase. Be happy, hope for the future.

Fierin out.

Pretty sure it's been 2 free Char's Globally .. Pay for the rest since HS began ..

This is NOT true, if you read this from the Trion live stream

"You will only be able to make 2 characters per server to begin with (6 in total on one continent)"

http://www.junkiesnation.com/2014/09/10/archeage-trion-live-stream-summary-tips-head-start/

That is not two PERIOD...that is 6 across all servers total...with 2 PER SERVER...

So, what is interesting is how the language has CHANGED as well on the FAQ's page.

This was the FAQ page on September 3rd. http://web.archive.org/web/20140903125943/http://www.archeagegame.com/en/faq/

"For reference, an account will be allowed to have a maximum of six characters with a limit of two per server at launch."

Nice....but...WAIT

The following day - http://web.archive.org/web/20140904001737/https://www.archeagegame.com/en/faq/

"How many characters can I have per account?
An account will start with two character slots and be allowed to have a maximum of six character slots but with a limit of four per server at launch."

And now there is mention of "paying" for the slots? WTF@!

Trion bait and switch!

tslobikSVK, they don't need to look at any outside-of-business game, they have Rift which have Cross-servers (Shards) and free migrating (7 days CD). It's not a Trion proble, it's a XLGames problem, for the Crossservers, they need to develop that feature XLGames. Trion could do it but if XLGames says no, they say no. Now, making a transfer server page without having to code it into the game, Trion could do that, as it is more of a Database feature.

So far the theme I get from the Founders.. Not all of them.. just most of them.. is Spoiled brats all grown up.. perhaps they are the "time-out" brand of spoiled brats and that's worse.

If your a Founder and you don't fall into this category, then you likely had great parents to raise you right. Sorry that the rest of the brats have branded you as well becuase of "guilty by association" and all.

It will be a pleasure to PvP these Brats when I get into the game!

Hello all ,
Personally I think the housing issue , thou annoying , is not the issue most are concerned with. It would have been nice if all worked as intended and launch and everyone had a fair chance to get there house based off of skill and time committed instead of luck getting online but what is done is done . F2P will not hurt housing as they can not purchase housing only new patrons will be able .

The main problem as been and continues to be the queue times and other related issues. Adding a new servers is a step in the right direction and most of us can understand not wanting to flood to many servers to create wasteland that open housing will make difficult to combine but will a average of 1500 people in queue one server for US and one for EU is not enough.

Trion needs to remember we are the ones whom paid in advance to play and are upset due to not being able to do so. Most people do not have the time with family's and life's to wait 2 hours to get online.
Most founded are using the game time that came with there packages to not only play but to decide if they will continue to pay after that time expires or play at all . F2P people will be using the next couple of weeks to see if the game is worth them paying for or buying credits in . If they can not even get I to the game what do you thing the answer will be?
People not playing or paying to play should be a much larger concern than opening 1 to many servers. Even 1 server will be to many with no customers .

Adding servers also does not address all the issues . People made there character and began to advance them and claimed their limited founders packages. To start over means to lose progress and the items they paid for in those packages thus making them not want to move without a character transfer . A lot of players , like me , also have friends they have been telling about the game . Those friends plan to try before they buy . They also want to play on they same server with the rest of their friends. So you can see not all F2P will go to the empty servers .

I have seen the answer that character copy will be available after launch. This would still work if more servers to online then as well, BUT I am imagining that a fee in credits or money will be required. Under normal circumstances that would be common practice but with the issues plaguing this launch and the slow response time and slower release of information this should NOT be the case here at least not for founders .
People are already having to spend credits which = additional money to character slots to try to get on the servers if they have to do they same for transfer that will add insult to the injury of this launch. Sure it equals more money for the company but at what cost ? A short term gain can lead to a long term cost.

I for one so not care what server I play on as long as I can log in when my life allows me time to play and play with the friends whom are wanting to play this game as well . Housing will balance out sooner or later .

I would humbly suggest more servers only 2-3 more on each side as not to over do it and either a one time free character transfer after F2P launch for any headscarf founders who would like to use it OR. A temporary loyalty store item that allows one character transfer for 20 loyalty points , which is what you would have earned for the head start period.

This will allow all whom want to move servers without additional real world cost so they can get into game , get land if available and they desire and play with their friends or guilds .

Thank you for hearing me out and your attention to this matter. Their are a lot of upset people yes , but please realize they are upset because they want to give you their time and money to enjoy the game your are offering and currently they can not.

Trionís business model for AA (a hybrid subscription/free2play model with cash markets) relies on retaining customers to meet the forecasted revenue projections for their stakeholders.
The litany of issues during headstart has created serious threats to those projections, but it is really the lack of appropriate response and customer service that threatens to kill the cow before you get your cash back from it.

Take the primary issues facing your founders: (1) queues, (2) housing spots
The first issue compounded every single crash. It is one thing to have bugs and crashes at a release, quite another to spend hours in queue after being the victim of said crash. The second issue is far more important from a longer term standpoint and will require a solution.

My assumption of the addition of the free2play component of your business model is to cast a wider net and then convince the potential paying customers that are playing free to pull out their wallets. If the cornerstone reason for doing so is housing and they know ahead of time that either (a) there wonít be any spots or (b) they will find a spot in the boonies for a house in the middle of a sardine can batch of housing which they can find another spot for any farm(s) that they might be able to place in other zones who knows where, then how hard will that sale be? Without a long term solution to the housing issue, the game is seriously limited from a subscription standpoint. Ultima Online had these same issues only they didnít occur with hours of release (really?!? Nice combination of poor planning on Trionís part and some opportunistic moves on playerís parts). I am sure that no one predicted players pulling massive amounts of gilda stars immediately after starting the game from some of the avenues that they were available, but its all about how you respond/or dont respond to what is happening.

Even more negligent has been their handling of issues for players who purchased founderís packs who still have not been able to successfully connect to the game as of today. An example of this that hits close to home for me is with my brother. When a company using the business model Trion is trying with ArcheAge profiles their customers, my brother falls under the ďgolden gooseĒ section. He not only purchased their most expensive founderís pack, but has a history of spending cash in the cash markets as well. Letís look at his experience with ArcheAge to date.

He did not intend to play ArcheAge, but the rest of us badgered him and moved over. Once he realized he was going to be playing alone elsewhere, he decided to buy a founderís pack. On Saturday morning, he registered an account with glyph (a new account as he never played Rift etc). He subsequently pulled out the wallet and purchased the $149 founderís pack and then downloaded/installed the client. After the installation was complete, he attempted to login to his account. It was then that he received notice that he account had been banned. No reason was given, he hadnít even logged into the game once and he did not get an email (which it states in your support docs he should listing the reason he was banned). He put in a ticket and tried to get a response using emails he had received. When he finally got a response from Trion it stated that they would get back to him in 96-120 hours. REALLY?!? At this point the headstart is overÖ no chance of having somewhere to build a house or even drop a farm on our server. What exactly did he get for that $149? He is rightfully upset about the whole situation and lack of response. The last time I spoke to him, he was non-committal on playing the game whether it was corrected or not. This not only impacts him, but the rest of us who play with him. It also impacts you Trion. That is the perfect example of a golden goose that you are pissing away with the lack of support for this release. I have seen the posts and know that my brother isnít alone. There are several customers out there who have been bent over the proverbial fence. What are you plans for those customers? If I was the one in his shoes it would take a very nice compensation to make amends. There are costs to doing that, but more to no doing it. Stakeholders are not known for their patience when the revenues are on the line, especially when they appear to be caused by willful neglect.

Letís face it Trion has lost customers this weekend. I know a couple personally who are already gone and will likely never return for a second look (Trion you might be on the lookout for credit card companies putting holds on payments). But poor releases are not a headshot and they can be recovered from, it just takes appropriate responses from the company. This is why I am more concerned about the lack of response than any of the issues that the game has faced to this point.

Oh as an FYI, adding a few servers on Friday night or Saturday morning would have resolved the queue issue and hidden the housing issue for a time. However, adding 2 more servers on the last day of headstart (while it is a start) wonít be much of a salve. There is a good chance that customers flooding to the new servers in hopes of open spots for housing/farms (especially those that work) will not only find the same problem there when they get online, but they will have lost the other perk of every headstart and that is the time to level and get ahead of the incoming masses. And what will the actual release be like with even more players in queue (and with priority queues how many of those trying the game out free will say ďOh yeah I gotta have that?Ē. I do not know if there were no decision makers available over the weekend or not, but that is a critical mistake. Someone who was onboard during the weekend to deal with issues that arose should have either been a decision maker or empowered to make decisions. At this point, much of it will be damage control rather than building on initial solutions that bought goodwill and trust from your customer base.

Kyrios is at 3k Q, we were at 2k Q and it was still a god aweful wait.

One server might bring it back down to 2k Q, which is still bad.

This is NOT true



Since HS ( Head start ) began it has been :


We have TWO slots unlocked, throughout the entire account (not two PER SERVER, two TOTAL)
we can then buy the remaining four slots to either use up to 4 characters on one server(and two others wherever else), or like 6 characters across 6 servers (1 per server)

Taken from http://forums.archeagegame.com/showthread.php?35059-Four-character-s-per-server!-Confirmed!/page8 ... HS ( Head start ) began 12 days after that was posted ..

If you must know, I support Trion with my cash in RIFT.
I chose to delay my purchase of a Founder pack for AA.
Yet I do plan to support Trion with my Cash in AA as well.

If you take offense to what I said then perhaps you might take a look at yourself and wonder why your branded as a Founding pack Brat.
If you took no offense, then their is no issue for you since you know you don't fit the mold.

Your response is indicative of a child caught being bad.. you know your guilty and you lash out.

So what is your point exactly?
You are likely one that cried and cried here for new servers, then you got it and that still isn't enough for you.
When your called out in the forums.. your Brat attitude comes in to defend yourself.
I sure hope you don't still throw tantrums in real life.

As I said in other posts I do feel badly for the Founders that have to go through this and yet some of those that cried are actually entertaining.
I even posted that If I had made the purchase, then I would likely be here to look for answers as well.
The forums for me as a current non-member of AA is just for observation and for me to place my opinions and it seems I gave you yet another reason to Cry.

1 will probably be more than enough as people will not migrate to new servers without an account reset in order to re-start there. People will just ask for refund as Trion completely screwed up on delivering what people paid cash for. I will see if I can get an account reset so I can start a fresh on the new server cause the que on the current server is just ludicrous for people paying for access. If I can't get account reset to zero I will probably ask for a refund.

Should people have free transfers ? : Nope
Should Trion have given more warning of the server opening ? : Nope

It was painfully obvious to anyone with any sense that new servers are / were needed ..If people ran off impatiently and made all their char's on the initial servers .. O well that's what you get for not thinking ahead ..

Hint : Before you run off and make all of your 6 chars on the new servers .. Expect they maybe have more planned to be released for the hordes 2moro ..



No clue .. I know I didn't bother playing for the first two days of HS due to all the issues .. And just this minute managed to place my scarecrow garden right next to Gweonid lake ( few spaces still there ) on Naima server ..

Free transfers should be a mandatory thing in EVERY MMO. Rift did a really good job with this, 1 free transfer per week (per char?). Obviously in AA a server transfer is slightly more work than most other MMOs because of non-instanced lands, but that should be part of the transfer, you acknowledge that you are going to lose any land you own. Get the mats back, but that's it, you're required to find land again.

There is almost 0 work required to transfer characters from 1 server to another. You write the process, which should be a very simple data transfer from 1 database to another, and then you add a last transferred date, and if the current date >= last transferred date + 7, allow transfer button. All paid transfer systems basically use this, there is no reason any person should physically interact with ANYTHING to take a paid transfer, so charging for it is a ludicrous practice that idiot customers allowed Blizzard to get away with, and now the entire industry thinks that charging for it is perfectly acceptable.

That being said, ESPECIALLY when a game launches with too few servers, free transfers should allowed onto new servers just to spread things out. This isn't like a new server just to give new players a chance to experience the game from scratch, this is a, "omg, our current servers can't handle that many people". For AA to thrive, all servers need to have a good balance of Patrons:F2P, and with the current servers being full of Patrons, where are the F2P ppl going to go?

I wouldn't be so sure new servers are coming. Remember how they took Alpha and Omega because they needed the hardware for launch ... but then launched with only the beta servers?

Alpha and Omega were obviously part of a fall-back plan. The question is how much other hardware is there? Normally you'd think an op like Trion wouldn't need to penny-pinch by taking both Alpha servers - particularly since they said they may come back as testing servers later - but that seems to be the case.

Im with ya, just seeing where the housing market is going before I make my decision.

Housing... None in safe zones...Want a house or farm... Even PVP is filling up.. There was not enough Servers to balance any of it..People are fighting for places EVEN in PVP zones.

I hope for server transfer option in the future.
I hope for account reset option now. Refund is probably the way to go as they have proven their incompetence at delivering a product that has been more or less packaged for re-sale let alone capable of doing something like an account reset option.

im talking about buying a house, I got a nice little spot in DragonTail on kyrios, thinking I might be able to sell it and raise some money to move waterfront later.

Demand a REFUND
Probably the only way things will be remedied with any expedience. Take your money away from F2P's version of EA. Scratch that EA has not managed to screw a launch this badly as far as I remember. They make capitalistic games, but they deliver them fairly competently. It takes a very special kind of company to deliver an essentially packaged good game as to make those qualities near non existent. ArcheQue Online should have been the name of this repackaged game.

Friends, allies, enemies.

You knew exactly what was coming. EXACTLY. If you have never done an MMO launch before, well, you did now. This stuff happens ALL THE TIME. Trion even gave you a new server for land grab DURING headstart. I didn't expect it till tomorrow. WHY would you make multiple characters when you can't even place a house? Unless you already have one, or several. What from the shop could you possibly need to use all your credits? I rushed 2 small houses and a small scarecrow. I had the 50$ founders pack. I STILL have 1.65k credit since the only thing you NEED to buy is tax certs.

Assume there will be new servers opening tomorrow. Assume that the majority of the F2P players will NOT immediately be patrons, giving you another opportunity to land grab. There was a forum post saying you will only be allowed 2 characters without paying, after being UNABLE to place a plot, why would you make another toon? I would have deleted my second toon immediately and prep for the next land grab.

I did not play during alpha or beta, and I still got a house. In fact, I got a thatched farmhouse as well as 2 scarecrows. How you ask? When hundreds, nigh thousands, of people are posting about how they have a strategy for housing on day one, it would be a good assumption that levelling can wait. How many of you that played during alpha and beta KNEW exactly what you needed to do to place a house?

To the people who have been totally unable to place due to them not being able to log on during the first hour of head start: I feel for you. I do. If you are on tahyong I know a few spots that were still available (west). Friend me in game or PM me here, ingame is fierin. Please understand the cost of the farmhouse (which many people rushed): 3k raw stone, 1.5k iron ore, 1.5k logs. Calculate the labor cost. Please remember how many people are going to jump ship because they MAY possibly get a better location. I opted for a PvP zone as a home, and I don't mind it. Even as a newb.

This should not be a rage thread. Everyone should be happy that Trion COMPLETELY ADDED TWO SERVERS IN 2 DAYS. thats a 20% increase. Be happy, hope for the future.

Fierin out.

Nice post bud and well-said.

I would be happy to help anyone of West Tahyong, excluding the ONE guild we are at war with. Please PM me on forums, add me in game (fierin). I am a newb just like everyone else, but that won't stop me from having fun with you guys.

Make friends with someone else with a house. Join a guild. There are so many ways to enjoy the game. You already spent money on it, you already spent your time. Please know that it will get better, land will become open. In the mean time, give the first 2 M's of MMO your full attention. We should (mostly) all be friends here, and I'll be waiting for everyone on the other side of the queue.

If you must know, I support Trion with my cash in RIFT.
I chose to delay my purchase of a Founder pack for AA.
Yet I do plan to support Trion with my Cash in AA as well.

If you take offense to what I said then perhaps you might take a look at yourself and wonder why your branded as a Founding pack Brat.
If you took no offense, then their is no issue for you since you know you don't fit the mold.

Your response is indicative of a child caught being bad.. you know your guilty and you lash out.

So what is your point exactly?
You are likely one that cried and cried here for new servers, then you got it and that still isn't enough for you.
When your called out in the forums.. your Brat attitude comes in to defend yourself.
I sure hope you don't still throw tantrums in real life.

As I said in other posts I do feel badly for the Founders that have to go through this and yet some of those that cried are actually entertaining.
I even posted that If I had made the purchase, then I would likely be here to look for answers as well.
The forums for me as a current non-member of AA is just for observation and for me to place my opinions and it seems I gave you yet another reason to Cry.

Nice speech but he does have a point,you haven't supported AA yet so really it has ♥♥♥♥ all to do with you.

You are absolutely right. I got my 50$ founders pack, I called in sick to work to RUSH my house. I also have my wife sitting at my computer hitting spacebar so I don't log out (as I know about the queues).

Turn down the settings of the game if you are getting constantly DC'd. I have the highest spec'd computer of my guild, and have the least issues. It seriously is that simple.

Direct connect your computer instead of using wifi. Don't put a microwave (or wireless phone) between your router and your computer. Don't play on your notebook laptop. That will fix your disconnection issues.

As for the queue. I have said I have done an MMO release before. I've seen 19 hour queues. I have had constant disconnects for a week into the game (mostly indie games, tbh). This is NOT THAT BAD. Too much hate on a company that is working hard to make everyone happy. Go play Hello Kitty online if you are having problems.

-EDIT2: Queue times can be painful, but why not chat with your guild? Go outside and play... do a little cleaning. Get a job perhaps?

-EDIT: I have already said I am more than happy to help anyone. If you need a bit of supplies for a quest, if you need a few plants planted... whatever. Want to quest together? Need a mentor for SM? Need a ride on our ship? I wait for you on the other side of the queue. Add fierin (US TAHYLONG WEST), or PM me here

Founders, you've seen it for yourselves: the population on ArcheAge's initial Head Start (http://www.archeagegame.com/en/news/2014/09/archeage-head-start/) servers has been burgeoning! We're excited to announce that two new servers are being added during Head Start due to overwhelming demand. Inoch is our new North American server and will be added to the Auction House 1 cluster. Aier is our new European server and will be added to the Auction House 3 cluster.

These new servers will be brought online and available to play today: Monday September 15 at 10:30 AM PDT (GMT-7). See you in ArcheAge, Founders!

Read the full article on the website. (http://www.archeagegame.com/en/news/2014/09/new-servers-added-inoch-na-and-aier-eu/)

NOTE: If you have difficulty seeing or connecting to one of the new servers, try logging into an existing character first.

Please revise your decision ASAP. The FTP crowd in NA alone will far exceed 5000 players. One server will not be enough and grossly underestimating this situation.

There is 2 options;

With 1 server for each region decided, add 1-2 more. Even then, the intial client boot time would be horrible.

Which brings me to point 2. Your team of XL game and Trion engineers have to produce miracles by improving log-in server efficiency, then please report their progress. Tell them to aim for 250% reduction in log in times. Anything less and we'll be see another repeat of "black" friday.

Look let me put it simply it has nothing to do with whether or not I have land for the profession I wanted or have my wife hitting space-bar to avoid auto-kick afk. It has to do with the simple fact that the congestion and load on all the servers was fairly predictable and they should have planned for it accordingly. There should not be hours long ques on ANY server for any patron period. Que times should at most be an issue of traffic management and be 5-15 minutes long at most had they properly planned to deliver the game. I was in CB and OB there were no server ques. Probably a little warning about the extra features like hours long ques would have been warranted and they not be getting the well deserved flak they are getting for being incompetent at delivering a re-packaged game they managed to screw on the delivery. They need to allow for individual account resets in order for people to seriously consider moving to another server or demand a refund failing to provide that option. People did not screw up the launch Trion did it all on its own and it deserves every little bit of crap it gets for it.

True not everyone has made max characters and people should be given the option of resetting accounts to start a new on the new server because their patron items/benefits are gonna go to waste on their old characters on the server they left. The screw up was on Trion's side not the players.

did it ever occur to you that trion doesn't really want people playing for free? free to play is a marketing tactic to convert non-players into subscribers. at the moment trion has 7 servers PACKED with subscribers and might just be happy with that revenue vs. overhead ratio.
