    These hate posts dont bring anything good...

    The fact that you like some game more than other does not make it a better game.

    Some players just prefer to live and die by IP instead of the feature set a game actually has. You and I are in the latter catagory. The question is where everyone ends up when the dust settles and and newness wears off. I know where I'll be....

     I agree with the title of this thread (w/e with the "fake" comment though). The reason being, is atleast people have played AA. It just doesn't make since to hype a game before you played or even seen it, it's boarderline crazy.

    I haven't even bothered to check what's ArcheAge because as far as I know it's still some time till it'll be released, but the title of this thread and the original post sure did a good job to earn my antipathy towards it, and with it my low hype rating. 

     

    Keep it up, this mature way of supporting your game is gonna work.

    My opinion is my own. I respect all other opinions and views equally, but keep in mind that my opinion will always be the best for me. That's why it's my opinion.

    You do realize many people view that as zerg vs zerg and really aren't interested in that sort of combat.

    It is an impressive accomplishment, just might not be what folks are looking for.

    Would help if communications to the Western audience were a bit more forthcoming, hopefully that will change soon.

    Something tells me you didn't watch the video *troll face*. Anyways. You're right when we're talking about siege combat. Zerging is no fun and the side with the bigger swarm wins. However, there's much more to Archeage than just zerging PvP.

    Sandbox is a niche product and ArcheAge is not really a pure sandbox but a hybrid.  With that being said AA is an Asian MMO and will be as about as popular as Aion in the West.  Thats a fact!

     

    CU will be another Niche game which would do well to aquire 100k subscribers.

     

    ESO is the next mega-huge Triple-A MMO which will pull in millions of players.  With that being said, only time will tell if most of those stick around.  If the game offers enough content and features enough TES like gameplay then it should be poised to grow.

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

     Archeage will be hyped up for the North American audiance when the game starts to be revealed by TRION. So hold your horses. Besides, games like ESO and CU will kill themselves off long before the games are released. Long live the mighty words spoken by Mark Jacobs(Lead Developer of CU/Mythic), "Working as intended."

    There are also a lot of things about AA that have turned people off that were previously intereted in the title.  Such as the extreeme lack of rewards for joining the pirate faction, the overcrowding of the "safe" zones, and how instead of fighting over ships, it's more of a who can knock the other player off their ship and just run away with it.

    If there was true badass ship to ship combat, less negatives for joining the pirate faction, and removal of housing in "safe" zones.  It would go a long way toward drawing in more people.

    Looking at the video I don't think it really looks very "zergy"  and I really wouldn't call it impressive either. I think I'll take a pass on this one.

    All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

    I get banned in the forums for games I love, so lets see if I do better in the forums for games I hate.

    I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.

     You never remember listening to the random comments and questions by the playerbase regarding complete class imbalance or bugs and MJ laughing and simply saying, "working as intended."?

     Weird, because I was playing the same game for 2 years and remember the comments. Go ahead and praise your false idol MJ and see if CU doesn't follow the same route as WAR.

    Let me guess, you are not a big fan of ArcheAge, but you are a fan of ESO, right?

     From what I understood Aion did decently at its launch. However, I believe the grind was too much for most of the carebears/content locust customers to handle which would be where I think he's getting these facts. Overall, I believe that Azzamasin thinks that if the game doesn't cater to the content locust/carebears that the game will be a flop.

     I do believe his idea holds true to a point. If the game is very grindy it won't appeal to the common MMO customer of today. So they won't make as much money as World of Warcraft is off of their loot pinata game. However, there's a major downside to catering to the common MMO customer. They're content locust/instant gratification consumers which means they'll eat their way through the content faster than the developers can create it. Which in turn kills the game.

     However, this is good for the true customers who want a real MMO. It prolongs the life of a game by adding the grind and spawn camping. The game also has a massive world. So there's other things to do if someone wants to take their mind off of the mindless grind in the game. There's gathering gathering materials, building homes, farming, exploration by land or sea, and there's plenty of PvP.

     Just becuase it's a Eastern MMO doesn't mean it'll suffer the same fate as other Eastern MMO's. I believe Aion failed in the western audiance just like every other new MMO. It's a very shallow and linear game that does not have a large emersive world to explore.

    I don't get all the rage with huge fights anyways.  It might sound immersive on paper, but in reality it's just a bunch of people who don't want to work together, trying to participate in a war they never trained for.  What you end up with is a bunch of people goofing off, going afk, etc.  For no good reason other than because they can, and few would even notice.

    Part of the deal with the Seiges is one of the core endgame mechanics, Player Factions.

    While not released yet, Korean players and media were reporting on what had been said in the past about them so far;

    -Limited claim locations on the 3rd continent. 38 regions were mentioned.

    -Once a single Expeditionary Force (Guild) claims 4 or more of those regions, they can declare themselves as an Independent Faction. And are no longer under Eastern/Western faction rules.

    -Player guilds are limited at creation to only 1 factions members, ie. A Nuain could not join a Ferre/Hariharan Expeditionary Force (Guild). Once they become an Independent Faction they can have members from any race.
