I got a rager going for Archeage, and i havent even played it yet..Sad i know, but iv done 1 month of research on this game and probably over 10 hours of streaming watched. (Thank you Bikeman for the most entertaining videos ever and educational)
This game looks too fucking good, for me. Im going to contiue this post acting as if you all already know the systems in the game and understand what im talking about to save this thread from being a massy explaination and just lengthy in general, but its probably still guna happen.
This game to me is Eve, Rift, Darkfall, Wurm online, Farmville, Pirates of the burning sea. All in one to me.
Movies / shows it reminds me of: Pirates of the Caribbean and Sword Art online.
Strong Economy that many things contribute to. Love the idea of trade packs, Theres a sense of player looting but not as intense as Darkfall (a full player loot system) Keeps people going out in the world, and not being Bank huggers cuz their afraid of losing their shit or just to poor to contiue PvP in any form.
The variety of mounts in this game, Oh my, oh my, and they all have a health pool. A real reason to have multipul mounts, 1 dies, fuck it, ride another one and procrastinate until you run out of all your mounts....lol
The Jail system/ wanted system, damn, did it really have to take this long for someone to make a fun and working alignment system. Thank you XLGames. Cuz you know what the fucker with the 24 hour debuff is really guna think really hard about commiting a crime next time.
The naval combat in this game makes Darkfalls naval combat look like a fucking joke. Harpoons, Physics *AV wishs they could even implement Physics into their game properly*, REAL variety in boats, a real fishing boat, not just a boat with the name "Fishing Boat" cuz it looks like one but has no real benefit.
Real Free Housing, Farming, and city placement. None of that "This spot is for houses, you can put your house there, no were else." Or you want a city? okay here is a layout for a city you can fight for it and own the same thing over and over and over. Archeage puts these 2 in their place by saying "here are the tools and walls, gates, and building models, if you make a penis shaped city and have everyone where white that goes to the city.....thats on you. Penis people..... lol...you get the point =]
I like how i can mix match classes to make what i want. Diffrent combos for diffrent playstyles and diffrent things i might wana do in my day, Different combo for land vs naval combat...Possibilities.
Every gripe iv heard for Archegae that exludes the fact that its in alpha/beta is the fact that its not full loot, that trade packs are wonky and tab target is "terrible".... In truth these are all personal opinions. For me combat is combat, if its fluid/ smooth, works good and interesting, then its good in my book.
Im not trying to sound like a fanboy, but damn this is 1 game that has one good rep with its players and me. I even tried finding rants on youtube for archeage just to see the negatives, nothing came up lol.
Theres always haters out there, but hey no game is for everyone.
And if you do the math, people be like you crazy as fuck to buy a $150 alpha, or a 50 dollar 3-5 day beta events.
But in the Archeum pack (150) JUST the store credit (75 dollars worth) and the patron months given (3 months, each at 15 per, coming to 45 in total) is 120 value, not even mentioning the other items your getting. Thats Alpha and a bunch of bonus items (put the worth of the items yourself) for 30 bucks. and 4 day head start.
for the 50 buck pack is 1 month and 25 bucks worth of in store credit, thats 35 bucks of stuff, 15 bucks for closed beta, and 4 day head start, along with the few items in the silver pack.
Not to bad people. Not spending the money on the alpha, your spending the money on the games final product in advance (For trion to see how secure the game is in NA, and what not)
So hey, lets hold hold hands and....
