    Hmmm to buy or wait 6 days...

    The only thing i worry about buying the early access, is what if i want to cancel it? Because there is still the NA release soon hopefully.. Im pretty on the fence about it to be honest.

    Wait, unless you know Russian language. The OBT version won't have some of the Endgame features yet ( like Sieges, Player factions and some other stuff ) - they will be adding them in the months to come.

    At least it´s the pre-1.0 client :)
  • LlexXLlexX HungaryPosts: 197Member

    The character creation is open for those with Early Access, OBT starts on Sunday 10AM Moscow time again for those with Early Access.

     

    Most of the international ArcheAge communities decided to play on:

    Server 4 - "TARH" "Tayang"

    Damn. Russia's just next door so my ping might be half-decent. I can't speak Russian though. I have my hands full with Finnish as it is. I'll just wait for EU beta...

    Are you sure they will not try and block non Russian IP's to lessen the strain on their servers?

    I'm confused as to why Trion are using Russia to run the OBT for Archeage when they have recently closed the Russian Rift servers. Seems ironic to say the least.

    If the EU Rift servers are anything to go by you'll still have to learn Russian... :)

    Trion has nothing to do with ArcheAge Russia - mail.Ru is hosting AA in Russia - this is their OBT.

    Also Trion didn't own any servers in Russia - Rift Russia was hosted by a Russian company on their own servers, they were the Russian publisher for Rift.

    The closure of Russian Rif servers was due to the Russian publishing company ripping off its playerbase (charging $100 in transfer fees on top of subscription) Trion said - we don't want any part of this and they offered free transfers to all Russian players to EU shards.

    So with this being an Open Beta Test, when is the game being released in Russia?

    There is no date for release and Russian companies just love to make OBT as long as possible. Why? Because they charge you as much as in released game, but if something goes wrong they can say "look, it's OBT, things suppose to go wrong during this time".

    And i'm not impressed with the game actually. For the most part it looks like Lineage + Rift. Been there, saw that.

    Any idea which server has decent western population and doesnt have block on new characters?
  • IlludoIlludo Port HopePosts: 47Member Uncommon
    The OBT basically marks the release of the game. Characters won't be wiped and Early Access (for those who purchased) ended on last Saturday, the start of the OBT.
  • IlludoIlludo Port HopePosts: 47Member Uncommon
    @Cura: Server ???? has the most western players of those that aren't locked.

    In addition to that 40 days of premium you'll get this ingame items:

    1) Title "?????????????" ("pioneer" in Russian). This title will give your char +1 to all stats.

    2) "??????? ?????????????" ("Pioneer's cape" in Russian). This cape adds +1 to all stats.

    3) "??????? ???????????" ("Heraldry ink" in Russian). Used to create your own coat of arms.

    4) "??????????? ???????" x 5 ("Indelible ink" in Russian). Used to create an ornament on your cloak or sails.

    P.S. Ok, forum doesn't support cyrillic so enjoy this question marks instead =)
