    Thanks, Trion, for increasing the prices so much. If I were you, I'd increase it further, because why care about being fair? You got a lot of lemmings following ArcheAge anyway (including myself) so just increase the price so much until it hurts - it'll eventually make you more money! As for me: I will only be buying & spending as many credits as I need for the labor pots and e.g. land certificates. I used to buy quite a few credits, but since the rate is now rather unfair in comparison to what it used to be, you can keep your credits to yourself. Basically you got one less average whale now - congratulations. It helps me save some money and spend it on better things than ArcheAge (which is just about everything).
    These higher prices and thus more unfair conditions for EU people such as myself, make it easier for me to hopefully withdraw from ArcheAge sooner rather than later.
    Got a problem, reporting a bot, hacker or an exploit?
    Silence! Trion is busy nerfing cars!

    Gosh they could lower them and go out of business. Do you know many products that are not going up in price in the world today?

So unless the buyer is paying the listed price + VAT during the checkout process then Trion gets to eat something like 20% off the top as tax.
    I checked my bank records. My recurring payment of 14.99USD/month is just that with no other fees or taxes, at least for now. You are correct. I am in the US and would prefer that players could just pay the same amount based on whatever the current exchange rate is. Additional fees assigned by their respective governments due to local laws or whatever trade agreements exist should not be blamed on Trion, though it would be nice for Trion to give a little break to those who are subject to such things, maybe split the difference with them.

    Best wishes to players outside the US. I hope things can be more equitable for you. Whoever said that it'll be the US players next, is probably right.

    it already is. We just turn a blind eye to it. 1)The daily quest to spend a 1000 labor gets you a nifty flask. But where can you fill the flask? Spend 300 credits. So you just spent 300 credits to put your labor back where you started and gain 1 star. 2) Remodeled Houses - the 1800 credits up front has already been touched on. What isn't said is what those houses Don't give you. There is no chance for any of the rare items of the particular type you are farming. No hay bales from barley, no rare furs from animals, no organic meat from the Ranch house geese. Still have to buy the required number of knives or the meat trimmer does not work. You only get quantity. You need hay bales, gotta plant each plant by hand.

    It would take over a year to build a farmhouse by yourself without spending any money. You can mine the ore, process the rock, all of which uses up your labor so you have to stop everyday. Grow trees on your scarecrow. Then you can THINK about the remodeling - which starts with 30 packs of stone. So after you have spent the next year and a half plus building you remodeled house, NOW you can start thinking about what you need to make gear that your character needed ages ago.

    The average player will not work the system like this and Trion knows it. They will spend more real money to find things to sell to get the gold to purchase the materials thru the auction house. This is where Trion Really makes their money. Patrons will buy apex with cash to sell, and non-patrons will spend their gold buying apex.

    non-patrons will make gold by stealing from the patrons, especially the carebears who really enjoy traderuns. Trion encourages this. Why do you think you can't make any gold just killing monsters and doing quests? When a level 52 monster pays out 22 silver thats well past ridiculous.

    Trion has built in Multiple ways to essentially Force players to spend money, even when the players don't see the connection. we generally rationalize that its worth it because we are so close to obtaining whatever that particular goal/item is.

    Trion already has us coming and going. No one should be surprized at the latest change. They know that the game, in and of itself, is Great and a lot of fun across the board. And that is what they will take advantage of until the day the servers suddenly close.

    Is everyone fkn broke? It's not that much of a raise and honestly the price of apex in gold is still 450-500 gold. You can easily make this daily / few hours in game. Or you can simply log in and log out in Europe for loyalty and sell the loyalty at the end of the month for pretty much an apex (you're able to multiclient now so log into na and eu same time at least for the loyalty). Patron pays for itself. if you want credits, just buy apex in game its Not hard at all.

    Well to be honest, AA is great game but with ♥♥♥♥ty payment system, other games you get some decent stuff when spending $100, here in game you get ♥♥♥♥ for that, buying and Epic weapons cost like $900-$1000 WTF, I would rather spend that money in another game and get some good items instead of pay for bull♥♥♥♥s

    why would we want to buy more packs when you cant even fix the housing issues? since the mergers you have more players than land avilable and the gold spammers are beginning to make a come back because the land is priced over 6k per piece and some players have 4 24x24 plots they dont even use but yet your asking us to buy a $300.00 pack that offers pretty much nothing of interest? come on really?
