So first off, I do know asain MMO's, after playing FFXI for 4 years, i'm deffinitly no noob to them. So I do understand that they do things a little diffrent.
Second, I do like the fact that this is semi-sandbox, I like options, and I do realize options are often abused and that is part of the big gulp that is a sandbox.
AND last but not least, I am a huge fan of Archeage and plan on buying it the second I possibly can..
....having said all of that. I don't really care for the fact that there is no realy uniform way of doing things in Archage. For instance, they are still using dark-aged catapults for seiges, but they have underwanter diving helmets that are clearley from the 1950's.. To me it just kinda throws off the whole world/feel.
And like the whole "tractor" planting thing.. its like, we use steam powered tractors for planting...but we still fight with swords?
Now stuff like gliders i'm not as bothered by, because I do realise this is a high-fantasy world and generaly speaking stuff like that is accepted, because they did have stuff like this, back in those time periods (or at least were discussing ideas like winged flying machines)
Anyways, just my opinion, and its not like this thread will change anything. But I was curous about other peoples opinions...
