Trion Ascension Event Scam

edited June 2016 in ArcheAge
Returning and new players are welcome in Archeage, wait for it, wait for it ...........not really, we just want to milk more of your money xD
Why?

New p2w packs with enchanting equipment in them:
http://www.trionworlds.com/archeage/en/store/#packs

notice the pricing scaling with the number of p2w items..

They will make old players catch up and be competetive with an event that will compensate you for not playing before when Trion screwed up evolution?
Not really, we will give all players nearly the exact same thing in different package ,so that the p2w players do not feel left out xD

http://http//www.trionworlds.com/archeage/en/2016/05/31/rise-to-the-challenge-of-ascension-and-claim-your-free-gifts/

If everyone in the game recieves the exact same thing, isnt that the same, as to no one, recieving nothing, progress wise.. Trion does it again.
On top of that many items that do matter have a 30day longetivity catch bound to them, so yeah the event sucks, big time.

And the selling point of the scam Trion is pulling is giving old players a possibility to get free enchants which new/returning players do not get:

"1 Legacy Gear Ticket – Can be exchanged in Mirage Isle for a Tier 3 Lunagem, a Cryptic Lucky Scroll, a Bound Duun’s Blessing to make a Silver Regrade Charm, or one of the 5 permanent gear packs of Ocleera Rift items that returning players receive."

This one is self-explanatory.Giving old players (most of them loyal paying customers) items for free to become even stronger than the ones that didnt play the game actively,  is like taking lambs to the slaughter.

But thats just the tip of the iceberg, its when p2w players start blaming eachother for p2w that makes most of the griefing in archeage, not the average players themselves, becouse average players use small amounts of cash or none at all together with their wit, time and strategy to gain advantage, while p2w players ability in most cases ends with the depth of their pockets, and some pockets will never run dry, resulting that some people will always be strongest, no matter what you do, and no matter how hard you try.

All hail KoonCoon ,the one who explained what Trion made of Archeage in just few minutes of this funny video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9GqaJaS4bs   or
https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=archeage+this+is  1st selection or

Thanks for reading, i hope you stop supporting Trion, so that someone better can take over Archeage and make it what it was meant to be.

Archeage is a wonderfull game twisted and destroyed by an evil publisher company policies.

    This is when people describe how good this game is(the obvious thing) not saying anything about the publisher xD becouse they know im right.

    Or they hilariously try and defend Trion becouse they already spend 1k-10k++ $ on the game and cant risk servers going even more dry of pvp than they already are (and population is on life support)

    OR, you simply realise, players, and most importantly the game itself deserves better than what that publisher offers.

    After what Trion did with Defiance and how People have been bait&switched and screwed over. I vowed to never touch a Trion game or one managed by them ever again.

    So really.... does this come to any suprise to everyone?

    It's the same with Perfect World Entertainment / Cryptic. All their games are outright P2W with outrageous prices in the cash shops.

    You can always link this to AA official forum if you have an account ready for instaban.

    For instance:

    I wasnt as agressive before, my account in archeage was banned for making an advice on how some game features like crafting ,gameplay, and balancing could be made MUCH better than they are, with downside of Trion losing only a small part of their profits they are making, but in favor of server longetivity, and game popularity.

    Trion didnt like me speaking logic to players(their wallets) ,so they silenced me. Servers did fail 1 month after , population of the game lost ~90% of its playerbase. They lost more profits from losing that many players, than they would had if they reduced the p2w in the game just a bit where it mattered.

    Yeah i simply cant understand, how they are not smart enough to keep p2w in check like for example in Tera, while gaining many more customers in return. Tera has awakening/liberation, and its still one of the most popular games around.

    EmE /GGG/Riot is the exact opposite to trion in mmo world.

    Yeah xD i cant post this directly on trion forums, becouse they banned me from the forums.
    They do read dozens of posts here and on reddit tho, when players criticize them, the universal answer is:

    I used to play the game and really liked it, but when I realized that the game is pushing me to cash shop, even though I was a subscriber, I quit.

    Maybe I am old-fashioned, but I expect subs to be "all inclusive" and allow me to play the way I want. In AA, I couldnt do practically anything once I ran out of LPs.

    While you can say pretty much everything about other games like BDO, GW2,ESO, FF ARR, speaking out against Trion in these forums is considered "trolling" and one mod in particular can't help but hand out warnings. I know first hand and not by one single incident only.

    It wouldn't surprise me in the least to see comments getting deleted and people receiving warnings in here as well.

    I've really been thinking about renewing my Sub to FFXIV. Just because it's the least monetized MMO on the market.
  • RhoklawRhoklaw Member EpicPosts: 6,541
    Well, at least Black Desert Online isn't P2W, it's more like P2C ( Pay 2 Cheat ).

    While Trion had "Sponsored" Links all over MMORPG.Com few days back i doubt CM's would steep low into standing side with anyone and censoring freedom of speech.There have been so many threads criticizing bunch of random things, and to have your comment removed you ought to be really offensive and toxic.

    Criticizing in a constructive manner like saying
    "Archeage would be a huge success if it was under publisher that appreciates all of its players and cares about them and the game instead of making it a short-term cashout like Trion did"
    and

    "  **** Trion ***(/%(&%** those *****  @****/&;$/&/&  "

    is ways different  xD

    That game made one of the greatest comebacks on the market, its worth it.
    I tried to go back to few old games, but theyr just either dated or empty now, so im gonna give a shot to Wildstar ,heard its also making a comeback on steam :)

    Yes, that sounds like the various official statements on moderation issues we've gotten over the years
    .
    But it is not exactly how it actually works and "Posting excessive negative comments or baiting others to respond in a negative manner is considered trolling on the MMORPG.com forums" is basicly being used as a wildcard for warnings  :)

    I fail to see the scam.

    Yes, they're greedy bastards who are running and item shop with a game attached to it like some side-activity. But I think they're atm honest enough about it.

    They made so called "returnee event" to bolster ranks of AA half-empty servers, but what they give is mostly crap and less that they give to old active players, most of them being paying customers anyway(whales) , and on top of that they comercialise how ex players should return becouse of the awards.
    And not only are awards mostly temporary, worthless compared to whale pack, but they also require you to be active each day every few hours for you to open some of them..

    And the scam is in the pack ascention worth, and its contense.

    not to mention new players are left out on what current players recieve from the event
    (event for so called returning players) is actually focused more on current players.
  • farbegefarbege Member UncommonPosts: 305
    Have no idea what the "Scam" part in the subject is about.

    I got many if not all of the items you calim are "pay to win" without paying any dime and just palying the game and click some event buttons etc.

    If people can#t resist and feel the urge to pay for the things i dont need to pay its up to them.

    It is not even worth complaining about Trion anymore. They have such a bad reputation nowadays it has become normal news when they do something wrong. I would love too see an internal shakeup in the company with some fresh new leadership, but I doubt it will happen.

    That's exactly what I did too. FFXIV and WoW are pretty much the only major MMO's left without outrageous/P2W cash shops.

    I rerolled a new character couple weeks ago in FFXIV and resubbed and having a blast again.
    It's just refreshing to just play and enjoy a game without constantly having a huge pop up on the screen with Lock Box Messages or continuously running into a paywall!
