    If your having trouble answering this question, or would like to expand; here are some specific questions myself, and I am sure others would like to hear if you have time to post:

    Have you lost track of time while playing, if so; how long?

    Have you encountered a "memorable" moment?

    While at work / school / or doing a chore, have you found yourself thinking about getting to play  ArcheAge?

    Have you stopped playing a different game in favor of playing ArcheAge?

    Would you recommend this game to a friend?

    I appreciate your feedback and I am sure others will read what you have typed as well.  Some may even base their opinion of the game or if they will play the game on what you say.  I greatly and sincerely appreciate honesty both positive and negative.

     


    I Tried it and I have to say that I didn't enjoy my time playing it.

    During the second day of CBT2 i found a 100+ secret tree farm in my "not so secret anymore" spot. There was a dude in AKF mode and all the trees were ready. I left the dude alive since i was already stealing 100 trees from him; but decided otherwhise at some point since he was 12 lvls above me and i still had many trees to harvest.

    Ended up with 700 logs which allowed me to make my boat and build my scarecrow within half a day. Since i had remorses i bought all trees i could with the money i had and sent him. I had enough money only for 30 trees though XD

    Seems you are what society call a "Honest thief", only takes what is really necessary  haha  image

    Have you lost track of time while playing, if so; how long?

    Yes, at least 4-5 hours later than normal I found myself still playing.

    Have you encountered a "memorable" moment?

    Many of them - fun fights during my first trade pack quest over the seas, my first CLIPPER and my first win in Arena against a well equipped DarkRunner!

    While at work / school / or doing a chore, have you found yourself thinking about getting to play  ArcheAge?

    So many things to do, so much stuff to consider.. 

    Have you stopped playing a different game in favor of playing ArcheAge?

    I wasnt really hooked to any game at that point. I was just checking WildStar from time to time.

    Would you recommend this game to a friend?

    Yes, and this game was recommended to me by friends who left WildStar and World of Warcraft for it.

    Talking to all major GW2 pvp guilds and tons of them are confirmed to play Archeage.
    All EU guilds are in contact with each other to roll on the same server to seek out blood and mayhem.

    After facing random guilds that wont even show face if you beat them down i for one cannot wait for release and fight some real competition.

    Alpha closed , open beta meh......Release ? EPIC !

Just my two sense.

    Then join a player made faction. It'll let you play with any race. Might not be right out the gate but it can be done.

    I have seen this before but have not heard about it since this article and that was over a year ago. Has this been implemented in the Korea version yet and if so how is it working out. Will want some answers to this but as of right now, it looks like one of those "wish list" features.

    Too grindy for me. Nah, no fun. I'll pass on this one.

    No fate but what we make, so make me a ham sandwich please.

    Did I have fun...some but not enough to keep me going.  I don't hate AA and I don't dislike the LP system (except having to use it to open quest rewards).  My issue is I just couldn't get into it, it just didn't grab me.  I am glad others like the game and I do hope it stays around for years to come.

    I had fun for a few hours during the last beta and can see how the game could hold interest.  It is a beautiful game.

     

    Ultimately, I don''t see myself investing in it.  Here's why:

     

    Tab Targeting:  I'm past it.  Between Tera, Neverwinter, and some of the other modern MMOs, I just can't get back into a tab-targeted game.  This was a surprise frankly.

     

    The Labor Point System:  Feels like the "meter is running" during gameplay. Parsing how often someone can build, harvest, of even identify gear just feels wrong.  I found this pretty annoying even during the few hours I spent in beta.

     

    Best of luck to anyone enjoying the game but I'll be giving it a pass.

    I heard they are trying to merge the code from Rift and Archeage. If that succeeds, i bet its gonna be fun to play!

    Too grindy? Compared to what?!

     

    Level 10 in like 30 minutes to an hour (smoke breaks.) Level 30 under 10 hours (food and smoke breaks, also beers)

     

    Questing is a joke, to be honest.  The only quest worth doing after level 30 are gilda stars dailys. After 30, if that much. I stopped questing around lvl 20. You build, craft, trade run, and PvP.

    No, I'm still waiting for THE mmorpg I'll play for next years, but it won't be this one.

  • rawfoxrawfox HamburgPosts: 647Member Uncommon

    Yes, this game is for me.

    I played months in Alpha already as i was invited.

    Nothing better could happen but it became a bit pointless because its not the real thing.

    Now, that launch is around the corner, i cant wait for it to start already.

    I've played up to level 20 in various closed betas and, overall, for me, on a Fun Scale (TM) of 5, I'd say it was about 3.5-4.

     

    5 for the combat, graphics, exploration and overall world. Really, really well done.

     

    2-3 for the quests (too simple), crafting (too gated) and game mood (too faked w/ Mirage Island and a tad too childish/bright/luminous).

     

    I'm hearing the funner, more open-ended aspects of the game really kicks in post-level 30 and I've had enough fun so far that l'll likely try it some more upon release.

    Yes.  Didn't like it at first (as a F2P person).  Decided to stick it out for a few more hours since I don't like being closed minded. When I got my first glider, it was an ah ha moment.  Couldn't stop thinking about AA between betas and bought a founder's pack. Going to be a fun long term game for me.
