    The ArcheAge Patron Program and APEX System


    Announced two months ago alongside the beginning of Alpha, ArcheAge's Patron Program was born from the experience of taking our first MMO, RIFT, to a free-to-play model. In simplest terms, the program grants access to exclusive features and expanded benefits in-game. This premium service tier, called Patron status, can be gained through a variety of methods. As a cornerstone of our "No Tricks, No Traps" approach to free-to-play, it's important to us that the Patron Program adds to the fun of ArcheAge but is not required to play the game. This optional program was jointly designed by XLGames and Trion Worlds and is available to those players who want to get a little extra out of ArcheAge.

    Before we discuss how to get it, let's detail what Patron status means in ArcheAge.

    Alpha is treating all Founders as if they are also Patrons. Free accounts will have a maximum Labor Points cap of 2000.

    those are patron numbers tho brutus.. F2P players will only gain labour when online. I highly doubt it'l be a problem..

    See, they will kick the afk's

    I could see that also, maybe consider just offering the bonus lp regen regardless, otherwise as people sleep every safe zone will be littered with the staring statues of afk avatars while the owners sleep.

    EDIT: Afk kick timer won't do anything , program that his spacebar every 30 seconds would kinda kill that.

    that's even worse, both patron and free players will leave the game running 24/7 .. i know i will, no way i'm geting behind other people because they are online more often .

    edit: i'm goin to waste more money on electricity bill because of my computer runing 24/7 than the game subscription .

    the whole "Bonus online regen" thing only works for the koreans because they play on PC BANGS (lan house for gaming), the same system doesn't work for us .

    "Damn, I won't get full LP regen if I log out, let me find a corner to afk in, how did I prevent myself from getting logged out before? Ah, that's right, time to afk mount level." Seems like a likely scenario also.
