    I looked forward to this title ,not as a fanbois but simply wanting to see the product.However as son as i heard Trion was the publisher i was immediately turned off.

    To this day i have no idea what this NA update was as when i finally tried the game i saw things that made me quit within 15 minutes.Arrows in the air,a map that was transparent over the main map and was cumbersome to look at or use so i was like who the hell worked on this game has no clue what they are doing.

    The producer is the main guy in charge but Trion said this game was being reworked for the NA audience,so was that just bull crap talk,how would we even know unless we played a different global version.

    Even still,pvp is just BAD for any mmorpg,land grabs is bad,hand holding is bad,the game is BAD.

    YAY had to edit post to work in the proper paragraph's because YET AGAIN the system fails.IDK maybe the coding people/person will learn their trade without so many mistakes.Maybe i expect too much from a PAID employee?
    I think of it this way..there are a LOT of nazi police who like to complain about posters English,writing whatever so when the website fails ev1 it is just a complete fail.

    Fresh start... for gold farmers and bs.

    AA was the best worstest game ever. The better was amazing. Blew my mind. After launch, the cash shop and constant farmers killed it faster than JJ killed Star Wars.

    I really think it's on your end. I've never had any issues with formatting from this website. Ever.

    I personally like the FS server. I played EQ ones a couple times, AA now. I will probably try wow.. Nostalgia or just being even with everyone else is what brings me back.
    Its hard to complete with players that have been playing 3,5,10,20 years.. but on FS the field is level once again

    I understand wanting a fresh do-over especially if you're nowhere near the top in the standard server but nostalgia for something that's just 3 years old? 

    I guess modern life is accelerated in many ways but I can't say I've ever felt nostalgic for redoing what I did just last week :)

    The new gearing system In Archeage now is similar to BDO. The mobs drop different weapon in delphinad level and its free. In Archeage you can choose to get a gear. You can craft a gear that can cost a lot of labor and RNG or you can grind a mobs to get a gear and upgrade almost free. If you are new player you can catch up them by buying crystallize gear very cheap it is half price. It is called crystallize in Archeage but in BDO it is called failstack. The new gear in Archeage it is called Hiram it is drop from the mobs in auroria. This Hiram gear you can upgrade higher than ayanad. If you failed to upgrade this gear it become crystallize, you can still use and tradeable also very cheap. So new people can afford to buy. This crystallize gear you can recover by purchasing scroll in honor shop. The different of crafting gear now you can transmute. Example if your gear is delphinad flame, you can transmute to delphinad gale if you want to be a archer. You can choose if you want to p2w or not but it end in similar gear score. I play in legacy server but I grind the new gear because I know this new people can catch up my gear score in a few months without paying real money.



    the game still p2w ?
    I really like the system fishing and trade but the p2w ruined the game at the time that one had to defend his wagon they killed you very fast and they are new players because when the server started everyone knew the strongest.

    Every time there has been a fresh start there has been a featured fluff piece on this site which absolutely ignores all the blatant foolery that Trion does. The articles that get featured here have bigger rose colored glasses than people on Archeages own forums. Associate Editors can WTF this comment too.



    No one is ignoring anything. There is just nothing new about what people complain about when it comes to this game (or many others for that matter.) Everyone complaining about this article is ignoring what it's about. It's not about ArcheAge as a whole, it's about Fresh Start. This one, the only one currently in play and it's phases

    With this in mind look forward to more column's from writers here who volunteer to share what they enjoy playing regardless of whats new/popular and just an FYI I didn't choose to play a Fresh Start for the first, let along the second time - to then spend more precious time complaining about it.

    Who does that?

    Have a great rest of your weekend y'all its a good one for gaming!

    I have tried every fresh start hoping for an experience like the first few month of release but the magic is just not there its a bland experience compared to the first time. even tried the rift one and found it a let down.

    How about people in MMO's community make a petition to remove p2w in AA? If they get 1M+ vote I'm sure they going to remove p2w. XLgame make this game p2w because they worry to loss more money. AA is not a type of other MMO's that have very simple concept. The world of AA is dynamic, you can grow plants and other living things anywhere in the map and those thing have a timer. Also it is open world housing, you can see the world is improving if player made a progress. I guess if they stop the p2w and have only hundred player it become similar happen to wildstar and other MMO's without giving update and it's hard to recover because no money. XLgame is making own game engine and it is cost a lot of money.They need to publish own game too.

    There may even be a move for all MMOs to have an apocalypse endgame, they are searching for new ideas. But games which have players investing money before game launch will have a real problem with that.

    While AA is the poster child of server resets, its clear from the recent Rift relaunch, Defiance 2050 update, excitement for official WOW vanilla servers and even Crowfalls design many players favor a fresh start.

    I think going forward we'll see more MMOs offer fresh start servers as part of the business model, saves a ton of money over having to endlessly deliver new content.

    ArcheAge is one of the worst offenders when it comes to cash shops.

    One of the best MMOs destroyed by one of the worst P2W systems...

    tried AA the first month it was out. got to maybe early 30s & some griefer was hunting lowbies down while questing. he camped the spawn area & killed everyone repeatedly. watched this go on for about 20mins & dude was really enjoying his time. unfortunately for the rest of us stuck with unfinished quest hugging the safe zone.. im all for pvp in a game, but not during questing & still learning the class & skills. certainly not at low lv & extremely under geared.. not sure if they did anything to fix that system.

    What do you mean by Crowfall's design?  They aren't going to do server wipes or anything crazy, are they?

    By design the world is split into Eternal Kingoms, which are persistent and sort of a players "base."

    However the real action is in the limited time campaign worlds which reset periodically.

    "Campaign in Crowfall is a feature that differs this MMO from others. Each Campaign World is like a separate “server” – a realm where players complete quests and fight against each other. The difference from traditional servers is that these Worlds exist for limited time (1 month, 3 months and so on) and finally die. After the end all players who were playing at that realm receive special rewards, return to their Eternal Kingdoms and can join new campaign.

    Key idea of such mechanics is to avoid total domination of a player or group of players on a certain server. "
