If you haven't gotten your Carrot Dash donkey mount or Bloodclaw Ursun bear battle pet, now is the time! These two highly sought-after rare chest drops will be leaving the Marketplace this coming Tuesday, October 21 to make room for new items.

In place of the Archeum Supply Crate and Carrot Dash, a mount of a different stripe will be available as a rare drop on Tuesday. The Striped Supply Crate will have a chance to contain a Racing Zebra, a fast mount with mounted arrow shot, rear kick, charge, and leap abilities, combining the best elements of horses and elks.

The Bloodbound Housewarming Gift with its rare drop of the Bloodclaw Ursun will be replaced by something a little more sinister and seasonal...

Be sure to stock up on Credits (https://archeage.trionworlds.com/commerce/purchase/credits/purchase-credits-flow.action) if you're stocking up on these soon-to-be retired chests!

If I had my 10% discount for what I've already spent I'd be able to try for a few of these but until I get that 10% I won't be buying anymore credits.

Can you guys give us maybe an eta on the content? like auroria // patch 1.7

why is it taking so long on already tested and working content???

More money milking, of course... What about you start on fixing the hacking problems first?

Tristerin
10-16-2014, 11:00 AM
Scapes, I have to agree - stop pushing the money, though I know its your job. Or at least - let them know that the majority of their forum users do not enjoy only getting information on how we can BUY more things from them, when the content we are paying for is so screwed up already.

Tristerin
10-16-2014, 11:00 AM
Scapes - or tell them that, most likely true, if us patrons got the 10% off that we were PROMISED then they would probably be making more money and that bottom dollar wouldnt be so far on the bottom.

10% discount would make this buy just downright Amazing! Too bad the game/Trion has no way of implementing it (so they claim)

Is that the reason why you broke the 50k honor pvp mount? It's now slower than the 20k pet. You only made this ♥♥♥♥ because you are greedy as hell!

You guys realize that bug fixing, hacking problems and store items are handled by probably 3 different teams right ? So this is not making bug fixes fo slower. Just not related at all. PLUS to continue to fix the game and update it and maybe hire more people they need more money don't they ? ;)

Might be a bit random but... does that mean the chance for Carrot Dash through the merchant chest from loyalty was removed?

York
10-16-2014, 02:51 PM
These chests are a complete waste of credits anyways, if the contents were actually useful or worth it beyond 1 or 2 'special' items that hardly drop, then perhaps but as they stand they are basically a huge waste of money, its not gambling when you lose 99.9999% of the time, its a greedy irresponsible scam.

That's on a different mount completely, the lord's mount. Looks similar to black arrow except for the flame on the hooves/footprints.

Trion ArcheAge cash shop is like Nexon but worse. I wanna know who it was that said lets take out Nui Tears and turn all the items you could get with them into RNG cash shop items. He/she needs to move to get fired. Maybe someday a game with do F2P right again so games wont flop and lose popularity just because a publisher has no clue how to run a game. Rant over, back to T_T in game. thanks for nothing Trion.

so they screwing us again, the whole reason I been buying the archeums was for carrot dash, instead I got two santiago rods you can't even trade, and where the hell is this 10% rebate we're all supposed to get as paying players, way to go Trion, you slammed us up the backside again, create new chests for these supposed new drops (a zebra mount is a load of balls so deserves to have a cheap ♥♥♥ chest to come out of anyways), carrot dash better be available to buy if your gonna screw us out of it via the chests, try fixing things that are broken before adding new stuff (like the live chat and it's innability to do like anything except write tickets that rarely get answered)

Fellas, it's a great marketing strategy and I'm sure tons of people are going to spend money on the cash shop in effort to get a rare pet/mount because they can afford it and enjoy the game. Let it be. If you can't afford it or don't want to, don't be angry about it.

What's the base movement speed on it tho? If it's 9 then it's a pretty bad deal, basically revamped lion but much harder to get.



The Bloodbound Housewarming Gift with its rare drop of the Bloodclaw Ursun will be replaced by something a little more sinister and seasonal...

Another cat in the hat. I'd like to have info on it's entire skillset and stats. If it doesn't have any dash with CC then why would anybody try running it over a f2p wolf (with dash and trip under 1 button), it wouldn't even score a single hit in a duel against primeval and given how much dps and accuracy battlepets have - it would only massage melee classes.

I do realize that these are cosmetics for the most part but still I'd rather know if I'm paying for something useful in the actual gameplay or just some some overpriced toy. (carrot dash was actually amazing but only for solo trade runs)

Also - will there be some starter packs for auroria with discounts ? (note that there is no headstart advantage anymore so at least take that into account while pricing)

Yeah it would be good to know. I didn't realise it wasn't a permanent thing so prioritised other things first before purchasing it off the AH. With this news, if there are any on the AH at all they will be worth a bucket load.

Ibrins
10-16-2014, 11:13 PM
Quite a scummy move indeed. Not to mention the archeum crate didn't have any "limited" tags on it, so it's clearly a "oh hey guys, there's a demand for these chests, let's add a time limit to wring everyone's wallets dry with RNG!" strategy. I'm really sad to see AA, a game with so much potential, turn into a blatant cashgrab, and not even a long-term one: they're milking the cow dry with barely any regard to what happens beyond 2-3 months. Wonderful game. Horrible mismanagement.
Provide people with a good service and they'll be willing to put in the funds. Business 101. Please stop ruining this game with cashgrabs, Trion, before it's too late, I'm begging ya.

Trion needs to make more money to pay-off all the patron's 10% discount. And are too greedy!
So Trion decides with no traps & no tricks to let the customer pay-up their own 10% discount.

The new chest was created!

Yes but all the Land will be scooped up by hackers again, most ppl in this game cannot get a Farm because a minority of players own it all.
Yes, yes, I was not "Promised" any Land but players can never raise enough money to buy a Scalper Land because running trade packs wont earn you the 1000 gold needed to buy land from the Hackers.

The Hackers will be even more motivated to control all Land ownership if more is released because it might threaten their exorbitant prices for resale. We all know that there are cheap, abundant hacks to claim multiple properties at once, but what is TRION going to do about it?

Absolutely nothing, non-hackers will not be able to get ONE FARM in the new release.

As a lot of friends and players of AA, i am now UNABLE TO PAY on your ****ing website...

This really is the first time i see a compagny that does nothing to even allow people to pay ... this is beyond my wildiest imagination...

I have friends that TRY TO GIVE YOU MONEY for 2 weeks... O M G !

YOU GUYS ARE PATHETIC... unless to pull out your hands from within your ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s and seriously move your lazy brains and do something, I SERIOUSLY HOPE THAT YOU'LL LOOSE A LOT OF MONEY (and will make sure you loose some because of me, morons).

That being said, AA is a nice game with good potential, and i wouldnt be that angry if it was not.

But try to see my point of vue, that last sentence on your piece of news is downright insulting for all of us who WOULD LIKE TO, but CAN'T PAY....

+ 1 I opened so many.. easily over 50 boxes and just got trash. Total waste of money, no pet.

Archaegeo
10-20-2014, 08:44 AM
You understand right that even if it was a 50% chance, that resets each box you open, so you could in theory open 1000 and never get it.


That being said, carrot dash is just being exploited cause he never got the swim nerf of all other mounts. I seriously doubt it was intentional that he could outswim a clipper.

I agree, they should follow their own rule that things you pay real money for should be tradable. I got the Santiago rod, and I would be happy to have it, IF it was on the character I use for fishing. As it is, I will never use it and can't trade or sell it. If it's going to be character bound, put it in a loyalty point chest!

Scapes......this is a serious problem on Trion end. Do an Ad Campaign Blitz to get players to buy credits.....and have your system failing to complete purchases for the last 3 days.....AND the system NOT allow live chat to Patrons as set up....AND no phone number to call.....AND emails to players saying LAST DAY BUY NOW.....with no working Trion system to make the purchases. Sad....very sad Mr Scapes......

Sparse
10-20-2014, 03:56 PM
I've already spent basically 230 dollars + trying to get my hands on that damn donkey, *not* including all the credits I burnt from the 11K after spending 150 on the game in the first place (probably about 50 bucks there too). The RNG on those crates is completely unfair, honestly.

Usbeorn
10-20-2014, 09:01 PM
Scapes, here's a novel idea: Spend this amount of money and get the mount. Instead, it comes off like a scam and really it is a scam. After people spend $100 dollars they should have the mount and the battle pet. Trion should figure out what they consider "Fair" for the cost and give anyone who has spent that or more on boxes the mount. First, it will encourage people who want the mount to, oh you know, buy it and be happy (which means spending more in the future for other things they want...or does Trion not see themselves here in the future and therefore milking everything they can before bankruptcy?). Second, you may be able to even light the match that could possibly light the candle Trion could hold to Blizzard. Here's my best bet...you will fail to listen to your forums and customers (again) and continue to sap people of their money and time (again) and not deliver any quality gaming experience (again) and end up with a failed game in the end (again). I can promise you this, I, for one, will not spend another penny for anything that is not guaranteed. I will not spend another dime doing anything with this game until you fix the problems and have a reasonable price point for extras. You may just want to consider making it a paid game (I'm sure you're scared after the Rift debacle). It's good enough to be...your company just isn't good enough to capitalize on it. They should've sold it to a real company like Blizzard (wait..maybe you still can). At least Blizzard knows what success looks like. You don't have enough money to be able to man a call center or even get around to the support chat for 5 hours for Christ's sake (Trion Customer Service=Fail). You can't answer an email in 5 days (and don't deny it I can provide proof of an email that apologized for not getting back to me in over a week about something I paid actual money for. Hint: Where your paycheck comes from...paying customers...Trion Customer Service=Fail...again). I'm surprised your paychecks don't bounce. Get it figured out or the people who pay (like me) will figure their way to another game (again...don't you get tired of failing over and over and over and over...oh and over?). Don't forget the new WOW expansion hits soon and then bye bye paycheck the people with money will pay to play a real game from a real company...again.

I've already spent basically 230 dollars + trying to get my hands on that damn donkey, *not* including all the credits I burnt from the 11K after spending 150 on the game in the first place (probably about 50 bucks there too). The RNG on those crates is completely unfair, honestly.
I would say purchase it with gold, but they are above 2k gold now.

Get rid of the F2P people and just let us pay for it. F2P people don't contribute anything. If you can't afford $15 per month you and $80 for the expansion why would you care about what they think or feel? Just saying, you are a business right? How many thriving businesses give their product away for free? Oh, wait I almost forgot I did pay and pay and pay some more and got NOTHING...I just keep hoping you will see the light. Instead, you will ignore the people who pay and we will go elsewhere like we did before. I would think there are only so many failures your company can absorb before the courts come and seize it all for your creditors.

I would happily part with my hard earned cash at a chance for Carrot Dash if the site would let me buy more credits before it is no longer available. It's been 4 days now and not only can I not buy anything but my error report concerning this matter has not been responded to :(

Wait, when was Carrot Dash a limited mount? The box never specified it was limited. If I knew I would have saved up and bought him for 300g before his price skyrocketed.

Lol some people really need to think before they talk, Fyi League of legends is a free to play game and yet is a multi-million dollar company. its a good thing free to play is so bad for business ;)

Does anyone know if supply crates bought before the patch will still have a chance to drop Carrot Dash?

F2P MMOs make more money than P2P MMOs. Just because a player did not spend real money on ArcheAge does not mean he is not making money for Trion. Many players buy cash shop items or apex for real money and proceed to sell it in-game for gold. F2P players can buy these items with ingame currency without spending real world money. Therefore, f2p players indirectly encourage people to purchase items with real money. In the end, the game makes way more money from microtransactions than from subscriptions alone. I personally haven't paid more than a single month of patron with real money, and yet I have bought many cash items with gold. F2P games are just the way to go. They keep MMOs alive with good population and just make more money for developers.

The RNG is powerful.

A person on my server opened 500 last night and only received one Carrot Dash.
The contents are 99.5% cheap (albeit useful) stuff you can get for a few gold. And they're $3-$4 Loot Chests!
In most games you can spend $20-$30 get $20-$30 chests and have a chance at a decent reward in addition to the cheap filler stuff.

Up until the announcement, I don't recall seeing any indication that it was going to be limited. Honestly, I think Trion/XL looked at the demand for Carrot Dash and thought it would be a great way to generate revenue, by throwing a limited time availability on it.

Their hope, I am sure, was that people would buy a bunch of Crystal in an attempt to get CD - instead it pissed a bunch of people off.

Hey guys, I'm new to Archeage, actually I'm new to MMO's in general. I am really overwhelmed and kind of lost. I need your advice. Some of the things I am reading on the forums is making me really nervous to buy a subscription. My main reason for playing Archeage is to collect mounts, own land/homes, and farming. For a couple of those things you need a subscription, but I am really scared of getting ripped off. For those of you that have a sub service, is it worth it? I don't want to get f*cked over.....

Just try the game for free without paying anything. If you end up liking it then subscribe. If not, then stop playing. You got nothing to lose.

No tricks no traps! No trick or treats. Trion you really need to consider carefully and be more presice in your discriptions of items you are selling.
Even if they are a gamble.
