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.
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"
ArcheAge, Black Desert and Bless videos InporylemQQ Youtube
Can't wait till the 22nd
I hope we don't have to go through too many hoops to get in!
Originally posted by shalissar 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...
If the EU Rift servers are anything to go by you'll still have to learn Russian...
Originally posted by oldboygamer 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.
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.
Originally posted by Draven 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.
