    Open beta doesn't carry over to launch, characters will be wiped before the 12th so don't push too hard in open beta trying to get your land!

    My main concern is land. Even with Head start it will be a challenge with thousands of players trying to do the same thing at the same time. Game crashes will be almost a certainty. Just want to be able to get my large farm as fast as i can then i can take my time.

    Hopefully there are enough servers that all available land won't be gone on the 12th!

    Great. I am looking forward.

    The game is nothing great. But its better than sorry MMOs we have available today.

    I'm not totally sure that's a good idea.  There's things to consider.

    1. Most of the people serious about the game and patron status are probably going to be in head start.  That means they're all going to be able to own land, and will probably hold on to it for a long time, meaning if you miss out on the land rush you are royally screwed.

    2. Some of them are in zerg guilds who can effectively control an entire server, from castles to trials to just making everyone else miserable, because they're pricks.

    3. They've announced that they will be opening additional servers on launch day.  These servers will be a mix of free to play and patrons, and land should be much easier to acquire.

    The potential downside is that some of the launch-day servers could become ghost towns as the game progresses, which probably none of the headstart servers will ever have to worry about.

    ***

    As for me, I haven't decided.  What will probably end up happening is I'll get seriously hooked in open beta and just do head start regardless of the potential problems.

    Whatever you do, try to avoid the server that oran'thul goes on.  They've basically ruined an entire server in closed beta and will only be more serious about it come launch.

    So, I can expect to start seeing the game is a miserable fail threads, in October/November?

    On a more serious note, I haven't really been anticipating the game but I'll have a look at it when it launches.

    That's why f2p rocks, at least for descent games like AA. I don't think AA is something great but as a f2p i can check it and who knows maybe i can find some fun in the end or even better it surprises me in a positive way.

    Trion did NOT announce that they will be opening new servers on launch day (immediately after EA ends). This is false information that has become "truth" because it has been repeated so often in forum posts. If anyone can provide a link to an official Trion forum post or livestream where this "announcement" was made, I'll gladly eat my words.

     

    As with any MMO, if the initial set of launch servers become severely overpopulated, new servers will be opened as required. In the case of AA, "severely overpopulated" status is not reached when all land in the safe zones has been claimed...

     

    Trion did say that all the server names from the CB/OB events will be available at launch. Currently there are 6 NA servers and 4 EU servers. They also said that the AH will be common across groups of 4 servers (originally they said there would be 1 AH for all NA and 1 for all EU servers, but apparently the CB events showed that this caused too much load on a single common AH server).

    It is possible that a few extra servers will be added for the Open Beta beta weekend. The server lineup at that point will represent the final launch configuration.

    If you really do want the land and not pay extra money... just join a server started after the head start(normal release).. or do you believe that their will no new server up at release day? Let the headstart ppl their own server.

    2. Some of them are in zerg guilds who can effectively control an entire server, from castles to trials to just making everyone else miserable, because they're pricks.

    Yeap.. another reason to start later on a new made up server to avoid those power and zerg clans

    3. They've announced that they will be opening additional servers on launch day.  These servers will be a mix of free to play and patrons, and land should be much easier to acquire.

    Exactly.

    The potential downside is that some of the launch-day servers could become ghost towns as the game progresses, which probably none of the headstart servers will ever have to worry about.

    In all honestly.. just because someone plays headstart does not mean the don't leave the game.. There is no real difference.. the main difference might be the player fluctuation(freeloaders) and that at head start servers actually play more patrons.. but even that might be wrong.

    Btw. i demand(for all premium games) subsriber only servers, or for ArcheAge patron only server.

    Yes, that's what I'm thinking of doing.  It's not so much the extra money as it is I actually want some land and I don't want to deal with hardcore crazy zerg guilds, both of which could be potential issues on the headstart servers.

    But the other guy mentioned there is no absolute word they will open more servers on regular launch day.  I'll continue to look into it and see if that remains true.

    During CBT 4 in Europe 2 servers out of 4 had queues while the other two where on high. I suppose they will add at least 2 more servers, either for headstart or release.
