    Nice review and overview of all Arche Age features and the state of the game. Definitifly worth reading.

    Yes, a very good read. It has made me interested in AA again. But I really do hope Trion takes care of that trashy housing rubbish with the uploaded soft porn and commercialized out-of-context eyesores like Starbox Coffee. It is really immersion breaking for me.

    It is important for Trion to reenable CBT3 crafting and reintroduce hardcore crafting back to add more value to  Archage.

    Jake Song is plain wrong and someone should make him realize it.

    Thats the point of a sandbox, to give you freedom to shape the world as you want, remember Minecraft? You can build crazy and out of context things there too as well, and that makes the game epic.

     

    About the review:

    I advice everyone who has the time and interested in the game to read it, since it's coming from a player who is actually playing the game since months, and covers all(many) aspects of the game. There has been many misinformation spreading about AA lately, this review will help you understand the game better.

    I understand. It's going to be subjective as to how much freedom becomes too much in the sense that coherence is lost and chaos takes over.

     

    It's a balancing act:

     

    Order/Restriction -- Freedom/Chaos

     

    We will draw our balances at different places. So it's up to the developer to find that sweet spot for the players that corresponds to their vision of the game and immersion of their target audience.  It seems the Korean market can tolerate a bit more chaos than I can. But that's just me.

    Good review.

    Makes me look forward to playing this game even more.

    I think it was the video highlighting an aspect of pvp, Good example of the stun lock predator,  more than anything that turned me off of the game entirely.

    My hope is folks who enjoy using this playstyle have plenty of wet naps near their computers at all times.  Spooge-tastic.

    Is this correct? They will put back in hardcore crafting? I was highly disappointed when they dumbed crafting down yet give all the pve/pvp players all they wanted. I like playing mmorpg's for the business aspect. Everything else is ok with me. Im a sandbox junkie but I feel AA will just have enough to keep me going.

     Did you ignore the part where running group pvp completely negates that ONE class?

     

    Daoc reminded me of this, some classes could solo really well but they didn't do so hot in a group or in group vs group pvp.
