    So no one honestly noticed how greedy Trion was when they were trying to charge 150$ for founder packs to the Diablo wannabe? AA I can kind of see the pricing especially given all you can do in the game, but a Diablo clone charging 150$, that's just greed. As for AA being p2w, that should've been obvious on release that it would be. 90% of f2p open world pvp games are p2w. Stupid to think otherwise.

    The sad thing is after spending all of that money on the packs for the regrade gems there is no guarantee that the regrade will be successful. The chances the regrade will fail are pretty high so that was $50 - $150 flushed. Then you get the fun of starting over again.  Not to mention the labor wall you will hit trying to craft the gear all over again.

    When DMKano stops defending a Trion game you know it's truly dead.

    I admit it took me about 200 hours before I realized how messed up this game is.  Trust me its messed up and run as fast as you can away from it.
    Are you onto something or just on something?

    Yea man , its really messed up and a fuggin shame to .. the irony is if Trion were able to with permission and opened a Sub server with (only vanity cash shop) It would be the most populated server by far , would most likely need 2or 3 servers to handle the influx of players .. ...

      but as the game stands its a complete P2W game

    Its not that when freebies are complaining about all the p2w, but the whales who spent thousands of $/eur  are flaming eachother becouse it became a wallet-race , normal players are not even in the picture ,tho it is possible to be a little tiny bit competetive if you play 15h/day or so xD

    Even if you did spend 15hr a day playing the labor will run out very quickly even with a sub and you are sent right back into that cash shop. The whole game is just a giant hole players are throwing money into just to have an enjoyable experience but that is F2P for you.

    NO, it is HOW THAT game is setup. That is all.

    Such a shame.  A great game ruined by a cash shop.  Was truly an epic game in Alpha/Beta.  I would play it again if the cash shop became just vanity items.

    Trion completely ruined one of the best MMORPG's that has come out in a long, long time.

    Unfortunately, if the Cash Shop sold only cosmetics, it wouldn't make the kind of money that XL Games are expecting, so that's never going to happen.

    Are we going to act like this is new every damn time Archeage does something? People have been rightfully blasting the game for the cruddy monetization plays from the transition from open beta to live.

    What is this? People didn't believe and are JUST getting it now? Respectfully piss off.

    Im out.
    Never going back i think.
    Never playing ANY Korean title ever anymore.
    My trust in Game companies wasnt very high before, but now all trust is ruined.

    How can i ever again give a company time of my life, to bring my life it into their worlds ?
    Impossible after that experience.

    Heh necro thread, but i had to respond, anyway, there are purely sub mmo's similar to if Trion would only sell apex, than there are fair hybrids like Tera online, where you would have rng chests, vanity items, cosmetics, and boosts, and than there are "those" , where Trion sells main component in economy aka Thunderstruck tree, and main component in pvpve aka Regrade charm, in the cash shop itself.

    I would very much prefer if they did Tera version, with medium p2w, instead of full.

    Hell, most would.
