    On hiatus from EVE Online since Dec 2016 - CCP continues to wander aimlessly

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

    The game did fail after spending 2 years in Arche Age and watching Trion make stupid moves from the "Hero System" which doesn't work, Timed Events daily, Forced PVP, and finally the Fresh Start servers completely killed the game.

    Archeage has been dead to me for a long time. I could have been a great game but was too uneven in spreading what you could do within. Too much grind (and other things).

    Trion must have Osiris on speed dial based on how many times this game has supposedly died.

    Isn't this like Trion's 2nd grossing title or something? Behind Trove maybe. That aside, things could always be "better" when you're from the outside looking in. The current business model of this game is pretty horrible and anyone who defends it either a) spent enough to put a down payment on a home to get anything good or b) has accepted the fact that they wont be able to get past a certain point regardless of how much time they spend grinding in the game and are fine with that. Even though I FEEL the game would be better received in the western market if it went sub only with a cosmetic CS at best, I do KNOW it would ultimately make them less money because you do have a lot of people in this game that don't mind throwing money at it just for virtual satisfaction. So its disappointing, but the game is far from dead.

    Oh the dupe exploit drama that "never happened", how I remember that. But Archeage was troubled since it launched, the controversy that clashed heads with the community made many give up on a game they cared to play.

    Then Black Desert appears and it's ongoing popularity seem to be where many went, as it does work as a container MMO for those who played Archeage and moved on.

    I'm sure you can still be a good game, Gruug. Don't give up on yourself :)
