    There is a multiverse inside our minds which millions live.

    CRASH & BURN ALREADY, ARCHEAGE!!! I have never longed to see a game fail and shut down so much before (have never at all before, in fact).

    I'll have to view some YT vids reviewing on this game before I consider it. Though reading through some of the posts it seems the game has its ups & downs which is common. A bit of a strange path going from F2P to B2P isn't it?

    Not interested.

    I want a Subscription Server with no Cash Shop at all.
    Not going to happen of course, so I’ll pass on this mess.

    Well I guess I'm the only one excited for Archeage: Unchained. I don't mind the B2P model at all, because it actually saves me money in the long run. I personally would have preferred a sub only/no cash shop model, but this is ok too. As long as everything is cosmetic and nothing is p2w, then good on them. I don't trust Trion, but Gamingo has never wronged me, so I'll give them an opportunity to do right.

    Also people DO buy cosmetic stuff all the time. Wow makes tons of money off that stuff. Other games do as well.

    You can still play f2p version if you think b2p is a cash grab, two option for you. Life is getting harder prices always getting up because world bank printing paper money.

    This is the subscription based relaunch of AA without the P2W cash shop that was in the plan for over a year before Gamigo came into the picture.


    Recall this from the other thread...…what was that DMKano? Mr. Insider?

    Hey that's what I was told.

    Shoot the messenger.

    Either way - not gonna play this, its crap, worse than p2p without cash shop (the original plan that XL was working on with Trion)

    Obviously Gamigo and XL changed the plan and made it worse - which is not at all surprising lol

    Interesting that they went with Unchained instead of the 2050 moniker of their other idiotic reboot.

    Lol 2050 I wouldnt even consider a reboot- was the same damn game, a reboot has at least changes.

    2050 was a damn travesty, shuffled the same powers from original game, came up with "classes" with said powers and added a weapon upgrade system that was more limiting?

    They went backwards- the game was worse than original.... oops 

    Trion fail - this was 100% on them as it happened before Gamigo.

    Shame

    I still don't understand how they can be trusted it seems everytime "Arche Age" gets broken and the population decreases they open a new "Fresh Start Server" Us whales myself included who spent more than $1000 in the game and got completely f**** over by Trion Worlds now have to deal with "Gamigo" making fresh start servers yet again just with different "Server Rule Modfications" based off reading their post.

    So basically it has happened again, server division, people who spent a lot even going back into the game makes no sense because who is to say Gamigo / Trion won't do it again with yet another server on messing up the game yet again. ----------Even people who own Solar, Lunar, Stellar Farms, Gems, as well as every cosmetic in the game don't get to transfer any of this over, yet some spent hundreds of dollars in Loot Box to get these.
    Fresh start servers mean fresh cash influx to the cash shop, thats it, there is no other reason why it's done anymore.    I was reading somewhere about some MMO that opens a new server every 3 days and offers exclusive god like weapons to whoever spends the most amount of money in 24 hours.

    "You will be able to purchase vanity items via Credits"

    This has been said literally every fresh start server. And they stick with it for all of 2 weeks before the cash shop all of a sudden starts being filled with pay to win items.

    What a joke.

    We all know that this buy to play model will sooner or later turn into F2P then P2W but I'll buy in anyway. The early days of an MMORPG are always the best and I'll try to get my moneys worth out of it before they ruin things.

    Be careful of third rate companies. Trion, gamigo etc etc. They have proven bad reputations for a good reason. Also, be aware even in these forums you have ex employees of said companies. Sorry that you spend all that money and got screwed but unfortunately that is the gaming world these days. It is very bad and cutthroat.

    It's weird how many MMO players are mentally unstable, investing *massive* emotion in games and *never* "moving on".  Goes back to the UO days.

    People with 80 hrs a week to spend living in a game rage about *any* level of cost, and expect to play for 15 years with one initial $30 purchase.  Of course that hits a wall once they realize there is someone with *120* hrs a week to play, who inevitably then outstrips them in terms of "competitiveness". Then the raging begins... Off to the forums they go to spend the next X years railing against dev XYZ as if they were dumping carcinogens into the water supply.

    On the flip side you have folks who dont have much time at all, but who *do* have some money, and so rage until they get a system that the "more time than money" crowd screams is "P2W!!!!!!!" (and therefore "evil" because in their view the only "noble" currency is time, since that's what *they* have surplus of).  Of course *that* hits a wall too once the "more money than time" set realize there is *always* someone with more $$$ to drop.

    What this genre really needs is a psychological screening before *allowing* you to play.  Ive played dozens of MMOs since the genre started and I just enjoy them within the constraints of time, money and skill that limit me.  And in *every* single one there is an incessantly vocal contingent of malcontents *living* on forums for *years* raging on and on and on about the *same* crap, with a religious level belief that in *this* case it's "different" (ironically they'll often harken back to some supposedly perfect game of yore which absolutely had the *exact* same kind of BS forum insanity when it was new)

    Personally I've never found issues with game design to be a problem on the scale of world hunger or the ME conflict.  The fact that so many gamers view crap like this as *existential* is just proof what they *really* need is to *step away* from the keyboard.

    Are the classes interesting? In game housing, sandbox, is the game more than just a WoW clone?

    Why would I pay for something I already am playing? It's another Fresh Start server with lipstick on. Unless this thing has a MASSIVE overhaul and I'm talking engine improvements, 64 bit client so that modern power systems can run it without issues.. It would have to be a completely different Archeage for me to even consider it.. I been through the broken promises and lies to trust them again.. Otherwise it's just Trion 2.0....

    Classes are one of the better parts of the game, because classes function as archetypes built out of pairing three skillsets together.

    The game is not a sandbox, with a caveat that a large enough group can essentially built a castle from scratch if they own sufficient space. Housing I found to be kind of annoying though, it was a bother to compete in landgrabs, filled the zones with unsightly building farms, and mostly existed so people could just play a dumbed down version of harvest moon just to then run a pack somewhere on a trade route.

    On a conceptual level, most of the mechanics are neat, but they sort of did not mesh together on a practical level to me.

    I did enjoy making and selling custom symbols in it though. Had an awesome cat themed jolly roger that I stuck on my ships.

    I thought everybody wanted a subscription only server with all tems available in-game without having to to hit the garbage cash shop.

    So now this one is just a box price, but same thing minus APEX and labor pool subscription? How does that change anything? I'm being serious. Educate me.
    Raging Demons for all flowchart "Kens". This is a metaphor.

    I'd be interested in this answer too. I have limited knowledge of ArcheAge, so a player's breakdown of how this will be different would be fantastic for me.

    you choose 3 archtypes and build your own class, in theory there are a lot of combinations, but in practice only a few is effective. There are people who build the worst class, and they love it. shrug. but back to the point of cash shop. ugh yeah no.
