    I guess I am one of the few that has zero interest in Archeage. But, I won't completely write it off until I try it out at some point.

    Sandpark, not sandbox. Trion has stated there will be an item mall with items that will affect your character directly (p2w).

    Also this is about 2 years too late. No thx.

    Did you already play the game for some time or are you just going by what you have read/seen?

    No, they didn't.  You are confusing Trion with publishers in other countries.

     

    Trions last interview stated that the (objectively) best stuff including mounts will be earned in-game, never bought.  They said nothing directly with regard to labor points, only that the eastern monetization model will not fit in the west, and it is being worked out.

    Trion is already selling Tier 1 raid gear in Rift's cash shop, can't imagine that AA would be any different.

    Umm... not to rain on your parade. But I think it's going to be the only sandbox in 2014.

    Best and slightly less than best can be a very small divide.

    I lost count.  Relate it to selling WoW's Molten Core gear, Tear 1 in WoW, in 2014.

     

    Hey anyone wanna buy these sweet purples in the cash-shop?  Level 60 purples!  If you pay enough the item level is 68!

     

    .. Or someone can just get their own low level crap. =D

    If i log into AA and i see NPCs with shinys above their heads for quest to deliver mail im going to log out right away and consider it NOT a sandbox.

    I guess you haven't heard about the recent changes to ArcheAge huh?  Calling it a sandbox currently is a bit of a stretch.

    Trion addressed that.  Linking old info isn't cool.

     

    Trion also acknowledged that there are issues with the Korean 1.0 with levels 50-55, which are considered themepark'ish.

     

    And .. Trion said they didn't like what they saw and are working with XLGames to modify the game for the West, to ratain the original sandbox flavor.

    Considering you don't necessarily need quests to lvl up, be my guest :D i'll enjoy leveling by using the sandbox features.

    So AA is going to be released in 2014?

     

    Might want to wait with claims like these until the game is released :P I mean its going on for years now and you never know when it really gets released. MMO's get pushed back every time with months.

     

    Unless they have a set release date already. I don't know nearly enough about this game. But seeing Trion is on it i suppose it will be a okay game...as long as they don't tie it in to a tv show :P

  • CaldrinCaldrin CwmbranPosts: 4,533Member Uncommon

    I think the best Sandbox of 2014 will be The Repopulation.. Have already played AA and sure its better than the normal themeparks out there but I think The Repopulation will be a lot better.

     

    Thats if any of them get released this year haha

    Yeah, it sounds like Trion are trying very hard to re-model the game to western tastes. According to their new community manager:

    "Some other information touched upon is “pre-launch packages” similar to founder packs we've seen in the past for other titles. Berman is also aware of the 1.0 patch situation, but can't say too much on the decisions of XLGames for their regions. Although he did state that Trion Worlds and XLGames will continue to aim for, “No Tricks, No Traps” regarding development as a whole. Regarding that, XlGames has already agreed to have racial quests grant experience and gear from the cash shop be less superior to crafted items."

    http://www.mmorpg.com/gamelist.cfm/game/572/feature/8322/IP-Blocking-a-Promising-New-Trion-Community-Manager.html/page/1

     

    So it sounds like the P2W stuff in the Cash Shop will still be the best in the game, just not as totally OP compared to crafted gear...

    Who knows, given enough time, perhaps Trion can persuade XLGames to completely change their monetization scheme for AA in western markets ?

    Best sandbox of 2014 will still be EVE, this may just be a decent fantasy alternative.

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    Rust, Repopulation, DayZ, EQ:Landmark, AA (although not a sandbox)

    I think the prostitute mod corrupted your game files man. -elhefen

    Not in NA and EU, i dont see that game here.

    How can a game be "rated" (by your opinion)  if it doesnt exist yet?

    Unless you live in a country where the game is allready release, if its the case ignore my above sentence.

    Up until very recently you could sign up and play no the Russian servers.

    They stopped new sign ups but currently people who have already signed up can still play. There is also an english patch changing most of the game into some form of english haha.. well it makes more sense than it being in russian anyway.

    I disagree with the OP. I think the best sandbox MMORPG this year should be Elite: Dangerous (providing David Braben gets the proceedural generation right and there is plenty of variety in that game's universe).

     

    The main reason why Elite: Dangerous should beat ArcheAge is that ArcheAge is 3rd person perspective and seems too WoW-like. Elite: Dangerous is more high-tech: it's 1st person perspective and is 100% Oculus Rift compatible.

    Eve may be the best sandbox of 2014 IF someone is willing to spend a huge amount of time playing the game (you must build up relationships with people in a corp). However, I think Eve will be superceded this year by Elite: Dangerous for the following reasons:

     

    • Elite: Dangerous will be enjoyable with casual play. Eve most certainly is not.
    • Elite: Dangerous will reward you in-game if you focus on the most enjoyable activities. Eve rewards you most if you focus on activities that are not enjoyable (spreadsheet trading and player-owned station destroying).
    • The cost of Eve Online has become too expensive for what you get.
     
    The only reason to stick with Eve is if you really enjoy massive battles and don't mind the lag. However, I think this advantage will be too small.

    I don't consider AA a sandbox, plays too much like a themepark but with a lot of fluff.
