    I cant figure out why people are hyped about this game, it adds NOTHING new to the genre, its just another ripoff with horrible visuals and dated gameplay.

    F2P is again a wasted concept, its just absurd. Wish em good luck becouse their gonna need it for sure! Iam staying away from this game becouse of the huge hype that will result in utter dissapointment in the West.

    And mmorpg.com staff should stop hyping this game, this is just horrible.

    Yeah, the combat is by FAR the worst aspect of ArcheAge.

     


    Free to play is quite disappointing. Free to play game MMOs are very "drop in, drop out" oriented, while sandbox MMOs are very "long term goals" oriented.


    Kinda hard to build a community based on long term goals when people have the mind set of "I can stop for a week or so if I want, it doesnt matter, its Free to play afterall".

    The dedicated players will still be there, if they want to be. Or do you want players to feel forced to stay?

    Wow. Stay off the angry pills when you post here! ;-)

    Seriously though, can you point me to a recently released title that ArcheAge rips off? I'd love to play it, with graphics that aren't any older than say two years. So I don't have to wait for ArcheAge.

    Thanks!

    can't wait for Beta access.

    What I found so impressive about ArcheAge are the little things - like you can sit on chairs , stumps, benches. I love being able to plant a trees, turn light posts on and off in the world - and none of this is instanced.

    There is a sense of belonging, a sense of home in ArcheAge, the world feels real and alive.

     

    This is EXACTLY, what I'm looking for.

    Lol did Archeage kick everyone's dog in this thread?  God forbid a game try to offer a small amount of freedom.  Are you all happy with the no freedom of current games?  People are even trying to rip the visuals...unbelievable.

    It has more to do with the game design then the payment model as to whether people stick around or not.

    A year ago everyone is excited about this game and now they add few immersion breakers and people hate it like it's SWTOR.

    Truth is they will never remedy the pvp idea unless they create restrictions and remove the free for all.It alienates a VERY large portion of the player base and imo alienating even 10% is a really bad decision.The last thing i want to do or i imagine anyone ,is to defend what i build every single day.I would like to enjoy the actual game and the rest of the content.I can't remember every detail ,too many games, it might h be you can only be attacked once a week or something ,i just can't see an open free for all working at all.

    Everyone wants large pvp battles but truth is small ones favor better game play,otherwise you end up with massive guilds over taking the entire pvp part of the game.I think where devs go wrong is trying to recreate a realistic mannerism with pvp,you can never accomplish that because in real life ,you run the risk of being dead for good.That alone means you take on wise decisions,but in a game setting it just doesn't work,it favors zergs or levels.

    Even if they have limits like 60-60,what if i don't have 60,maybe i enjoy a small family guild of 12 or so?You see how it alienates so many players?

    Also what would stop a very large guild from having ships patrol the water edges and stop others from making ships?XL said it themselves,they are having a hard time allowing players into the area let alone compete once they get there.

    I also need to see more,well actually i need to play it, to see how restrictive and or how well the class system works,i know it uses a lot of predefined templates.

    None the less,this is a VERY robust game,there will always be something for every type of player.

    All in all sounds like a game to keep on the radar

    "Right now, the pirates are so active on the seas that they tend to keep the PVE and economy players away from ever stepping foot onto the Land or Origin. And so the dev team is working hard to find a way to balance things and make it possible for both types of players to coexist without ticking off either."

     

    Can't be done.  PotBS showed this in spades. PvE players do NOT want to be fodder for sociopaths. In reality, piracy is "rare". In this game, it sounds like you have to avoid it many times on a single voyage....

     

    Let me guess, all the high end PvE stuff will only exist on the PvP continent.... Eve all over again.

  • dontadowdontadow Detroit, MIPosts: 1,044Member

    And this is why I need to just skip over fanatics on this website. From this article, Archeage actually sounds like a game I can play. I love strategy games, and the idea of playing a civilization/strategy game with others is enticing, so long as I don't have to deal with PVP. It's nice to know that the game is built for whatever anyone wants to do. 

    From the early descriptions in the article, I was thinking, "I bet this game has a problem with pirates" and I was right. Unfortunately games have to regulate people, because more than naught, a good many people will go for the easist, stereotypical path in a game like this.

    Its HD rendering, its blatantly obvius. A pig with makeup is still a pig. Watch a proper vid that actually shows gameplay. With its dated visuals, clunky combat and overall uninteressting gameplay, this game makes Neverwinter actually look like a AAA-game.

    ok another game firmly removed from my radar. F2P open world pvp is stupid and unplayable.

    I'm sure there will be a market for it.. just not me.

     

    Planting and harvesting trees? Man, I have a job already that keeps me busy. I play games to have fun. That's a little too much realism for me.

    Sounds cool as we all know.. was hoping for some info regarding our version in particular, though.  Will have to see how they handle certain things that, to me, seem pretty immersion breaking.  Mainly the importing of whatever textures and making.. coca cola vending machines, like in the other article.  Loving the sandbox features, though, as always.

    I didn't mind the pvp when they said it was up north.  However, if it's all out pvp after 30, then forget it.  I don't need a gank fest.  I liked WOW (before they made the game so lame) where it had pvp, rp, and pve servers.  You had a choice if you wanted to face the gank fest or if you wanted it with instanced restrictions.

     

    Eve could've been greater than it is.  It's a great game, but has only gathered a small portion of the players it could've had.  You can't leave the low lvl safe zones without a slaughter. 

     

    Korean AA is showing that you can't leave the safe zones without a high seas slaughter.  1v1 I'll fight you.  5 or more is just stupid.  Getting robbed is not fun.  Getting smacked by packs of "sociopaths" is just a pile of steaming S##T.  Don't need it and don't want to smell it.

     

    Give me a start to endgame safe zone, or a PVE server w/options.  Otherwise forget it.

     

    F2P, B2P, Sub, I don't care.  As long as it's not P2W.  Type of play makes a bigger issue with me over type of pay.  GW2 B2P works fine, but it's a reallllly boring game. IMHO.

    They lost me with steam hot rods, aviator mirror shades, and Hawaiian shirts.

    Building a consistent theme through a game is important. If you want the world to feel "real" then you have to keep it consistent. I know this seems like a little thing to a lot of people, but it will kill the mood for me if I keep getting griefed by Magnum PI.

    I LOVE free to play, however, WoW style combat is disgusting, even more so for the saving grace of a game like this, I really want them to at least GW2 the combat, PLEASE, do that.

    I am very much looking forward to this game. It looks like a real place to call home, and not just travel from quest hub to quest hub, get max level and grind gear.

     

    It seems that this game has a lot of possibilities and could get me hooked for the long run.

  • SirBalinSirBalin Joppa, MDPosts: 1,150Member Uncommon
    amazing they try to pass this as a sandbox at all...I guess they can try the new term sandpark...but definently not a sandbox.  Instanced sieges, pvp restrictions...sandboxes are totall free.  Not saying this is a bad thing as I'm sure many are okay with this...but the true sandbox gamer will lol at the attempt to call this a sandbox
