View Full Version : Ocho: Patrons and Free to Play Players

09-19-2014, 11:20 PM
Hey folks,Recently we've seen a number of posts popping up suggesting that Patrons should treat Free players as KOS, or that either group of players was wrong for making the choice that they made to spend or not spend money on ArcheAge. I want to be completely clear about this subject, as it is of significant importance as this community is experiencing a lot of growth.Everyone here, Free and Patron, are ArcheAge players. You are all valued, and while we most certainly are deeply grateful to the purchases Patron players have made it takes all of you to make a game. Free and Patron players are your group mates, guild mates, and your opponents on the battlefields. In the end the most significant factor is that you are all playing ArcheAge together.With frustration about queues and such, there is a temptation to blame one another and express broad negative statements indicting entire groups of players for certain types of behavior. This isn't OK.It's our job here at Trion to make ArcheAge as fun as it can possibly be, and ensure that you have a good experience playing. We're currently in process on making improvements and resolving some issues that have impacted all of you. You can read more in the recent letter from Scott Hartsman (http://forums.archeagegame.com/showthread.php?52941-ArcheAge-Launch-Update-Capacities-Communication-and-Where-to-Find-Info) (our CEO) and the ArcheAge FAQ (http://forums.archeagegame.com/showthread.php?52767-ArcheAge-Launch-Frequently-Asked-Questions-(Updated-9-19-at-6-00-PM-PDT)) about the latest developments. This is our responsibility, and we take it seriously. Please avoid the temptation to take your frustrations out on your fellow players, and realize that once we resolve these temporary issues we'll all be playing and enjoying ArcheAge together. That player who is Free today may choose to become Patron tomorrow, and some Patrons will choose to play as Free in the future. And we'll all be playing together.Thanks,
