    Should I come back?

    As old Archeage player which took a 2 year break, should I come back as they improved game and removed p2w?

    Btw is there any downside of buying this game on Steam?

    Nein, solltest Du nicht !
    Lese mal das Forum durch und Du wirst erkennen, dass man Archeage gerade zerstören will, Gamigo legt viel Wert darauf, den schlechtesten Service zu bieten, den die Welt jemals gesehen hat, sie antworten niemals auf Anfragen, sie reparieren nicht die Zahlungsmethoden (Paysafe), sie lassen Leute nicht spielen, obwohl sie bezahlt haben... Selbst die Androhung von rechtlichen Konsequenzen interessiert sie nicht... Sie fahren mit voller Absicht Archeage gegen die Wand und ich rate davon ab, hier nochmal anzufangen...

    Reading the forums threads will give you a pretty decent picture of the state of the game.

    In short, no. At least until the fundamental issues like low quality money saving servers, stuff like labor, exploits, ArchePass wtf get resolved. Might take a few months though up to a year, as we know by now Gamigo works at a snail's pace when it comes to urgent matters.

    I came back after almost a 2-year break. So far I have been enjoying it a lot but I only started playing again recently. There are so many new things to learn and the way everything works now is so different from 2 years ago, so it is actually like you are playing a new game haha
    As far as I can tell from browsing the forums there seem to be some issues with people regarding payments, and broken mechanics but I have yet to encounter these.
    The p2w aspect has been removed from AAU but it is still in Legacy AA.
    TBH it is your choice, if you feel you want to give it a go do it, if you feel you would rather wait and see if the issues that are mentioned on the forums get sorted do that

    If you like doing nothing but dailies, didn't enjoy tradepacks, and like being on a welfare system then nothing but fear and common sense stopping you.

    Most people come to the forum to complain so you will most likely only get rather negative feedback.

    Should you come back at all?
    That's up to you. What were your reasons for leaving? Why do you consider coming back?

    Should you come back to AA (legacy servers)?
    I love legacy. Everything I achieved in the last 4.5 years is there. Unfortunately the answer is obviously "no" unless you are heavily p2w or like to run 10-100 characters to max out your profit to even have a chance to compete. And then there is still the lack of players because a huge % has moved to AAU or quit the game when AAU was announced.
    You can't really consider it f2p anymore because you still need patron but the prices of APEX have risen too much for a normal player to handle at first. If you achieve an income of 10 silver/labor point you will have to pay 2/3 of that to maintain your patron status. Over time AA is becoming a subscribe2play server.

    Should you come back to AAU?
    There is no doubt that unchained has issues on its own. It is filled with hardcore players who seem to spend their whole playing.


    If you are a farmer you have to decide between:
    - lots of open space (Legacy) and "you only have to buy the game once and then you can keep your house/farm forever" (AAU)

    If you are PVP you have to decide between:
    - not being able to catch up for a really long time (Legacy) and having hundreds of active people in each faction so everything in the open world is also riskier.

    etc pp

    I hope this may help you a bit.

    PS: If possible, do not use steam. It only increases the amount of possible issues and you don't really have any benefit from it.

    MMOs, will always have bugs, its just the way it is.

    There has been no Exploits on AAU, people are just overly dramatic whiney babies. If that is you, then dont come back, we dont want you.

    Yeah, exploits that allows you to earn massive gold per day aren't dramatic. I just asked acquaintance on discord who plays it. He said got fortune by abusing some kind of seasonal pass. He first get banned but later they unbanned him, and he earned enough gold in 2 weeks that he would in one year.

    Yeah I'm whiney baby.
