    I have always liked AA except for one idea >>>PVP.Now he says after leveling it is all about pvp and that leveling will be rather fast.This sounds boring to me,gain 10 levels logout,then 2 weeks later i am basically done playing except for pvp which i have no interest in.

    Also if leveling is so fast,then nothing you earn along the way ever feels valuable or an achievement,it just feels like a fly by night onto the next quest.I can't blame Jake,he is just trying to join the crowd with a giant decent game.

    Problem is i have all but given up on mmorpg's right now,nobody is making  an actual RP game with FUN elements/systems.I think basically i am not alone,we want a simulation game with lots of systems.That is what role playing is suppose to do,simulate living the life of that particular character type.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    It seemed to me he was talking about after 1.0, they nerfed all methods of leveling from 50-55 and made the preferred method running the new dungeon/dailies as the only viable way to  level. What he was referring to was reverting those changes so that you can level how you choose (trading,crafting,gathering,etc) instead of being forced to level via dailies. As it was prior to version 1.0 being released.

    they are taking so freaking long releasing the game, by the time its out, it will look dated and there will be better games available.

    this should have been released a year ago.

    MMOZG.net: Why did you change the way Delphinad stars are obtained? Why are they now obtained by completing daily activities?

    Jake Song: Delphinad stars that are widely used to purchase ships, houses, vehicles, and etc perpetually belong to players. This means that Delphinad starts can be a very efficient tool to help players to set their own goal in game play. Players must input their own time and effort to complete daily quests, and this is why we decided Delphinad star to be the compensation of the daily quests since it meets the intent.

    Did he just completely avoid answering that question, the way it was before it would actually require alot more effort from a player to obtain delphi stars, you could have to grow your own plants/spices or whatever you needed to be able to make trade packages and do your trade run, obtaining it from dailies is just a really dumb idea.

    I feel the English version still doesn't have competition. EQN is still in the idea phase and will more than likely be learning from AA. Black Desert is still being made. ArcheAge is the only one currently set and fully playable as a whole game.

    Any quickly produced  sandbox will be garbage IMO. This is why sandbox games are taking so long to be released.

    The timing is still pretty good. I don't see any other nearby release windows for AAA sandbox games.

    I also think that ArcheAge has no serious competitor yet.

    Its a game, where all promises became a reality while other games release half arsed and far behind the expoectations.

    The daily delfi feels contraring to the sandboxgame.

    No idea how to describe it .. it is like you have a job that you do out of your free choice but now you got to make another job that you dont have choosen by free will ..

    Nevertheless, they are alive :p

    I might be completely wrong, but can't these Delphi stars be bought via the Cash Shop ? If so, it's totally clear why they linked them to dailies, because that automatically caps how many a player can earn for "free" during game play.

    The game could have been huge by now. All it needed was a capable publisher for the western market -like two years ago. To bad until today there is none.

    Yeah, Trion is the publisher for the West and they are actually in full throttle, we got informations nearly on a daily base.

    That said, they promised more then one time, that ArcheAge it will be released this year.

    Nope you cannot buy from anywhere and they are untradeable.

    Have you even researched the amount of systems in this game? Its mind boggling. PVP is one of MANY things you can do in AA after you hit max. Do some research first please. You don't even have to do the quest game to reach max level, you can craft, cook, build boats, houses, fish, farm, raise livestock, grow crops, undersea treasure hunt, create music literally, blacksmith, weaponsmith, tailor, mine, etc etc, etc

    Ever rp a Diplomat in any mmo before where your job was to learn the other factions languages so you could set up non aggression pacts and trade agreements? In ArcheAge you can with its language system!

     

    There is NO mmo out right now that isn't years old with a tiny community that has what ArcheAge has as far as rp opportunities. Absolutely NONE

    The problem is, PvP is the main focus of ArcheAge.  Sure it has other things to do, as does EvE.  But the main focus of EvE is PvP.  And thats enough to ruin the game for a lot of people.

    Of course, EvE doesn't care and it shouldn't.  There is nothing wrong with a game having PvP as its main focus.  And its worked out very well for EvE.  ArcheAge, however, has a *very* steep mountain to scale because it is korean, and korean games do not do well in the west.  Jake Song's big claim to fame (Lineage) was a big flop in the west and shut down long ago.  L2, AION and TERA all failed to capture a meaningful western audience.  ArcheAge maybe is different, but the odds are not in its favor.

    The PVP will be great. I think alot of gamers will pay for a game like this. Enough to keep it profitable enough atleast.

    Let's just hope they dont turn it into a game specifically designed for the whales through a shop.
