    I bought Unchained because of new business model, not because they bound/remove/nerf all ArcheAge item database. People always complain because they can't win the game. I've got no choice but to play this game with noobs lul

    I think this could have been a great game . It was laid low by the predatory practices that doesn't seem to have ebbed. Sad really I still recall how excited I was about it when I first came across it and was planning my PvP times and plotting where I might get a home but after it launched and I began reading the unpleasant and grasping ways they decided to prey on its playerbase, I decided it wasn't a game I would invest in.

    Again, would you hire a pedophile to babysit your kids just because he say's he isn't a pedophile anymore? People think businesses don't lie or are incapable of lying, lol.

    You have lost credibility for literally every opinion of any game on this forum for the rest of eternity. I don't care if you are Donald Trump, actually supporting this crap by buying 4 copies. You obviously have no shame...not sure which is worse, buying them or admitting you did. And no....I will not bother entering...

     Hmm strange response from you Viper , and i actually see as a good poster and a good community member here , so i wont respond in the same shitty manner ..

        I will say that since 06 i have givin away over a hundred games here i think , many times from Indie devs a support and believe in ,i do what i can to help out the devs and the community here..

      That being said Archeage Unchained is a bit of a different case for me as i really believe the core game is extremely well done , and the AA community deserves this chance , Many have been asking for this for six years ..

        I have not played AA in over 4 years(i think) as i refused to support Trion and there monetization not just in AA but all there IPs became attacks on gamers wallets..

         I do enter this with some cautious  speculation towards Gamigo , but so far they are trying to deliver the AA we all asked for 6 years ago  and with XLs blessing, the game many thought AA could be ..

       But i also think Gamigo deserves the chance to fuck it up .. They had nothing to do with AA before and terrible way it was handled so for me it is a Tabula Rasa for AA ..

        AA has a great community that deserves there game , Noone likes to lose there game and Gamigo is giving AA and the community of it a chance...

      
           Peace

    Please understand I have a lot of salt built up in me from this debacle. I put up $150 for a founders pack for the original game because of how awesome the alpha was and feel I got screwed over big time. Now they want me to have to pay again to enjoy that same game the way it should have been and it burns me inside. 

    I should not take that out on other players. I apologize.

    I think people saying they bought founder packs are gamingos employees trying to lure a few people. They will lure some that dont see clear but in the end this launch is doomed to fail like previous launches.

    I just can't get over the fact that when people complained about the POS P2W nature of the game their solution was to re-launch it without the P2W features (supposedly) but only if you pay again.

    People buying into this and saying "Let's give them a chance because it isn't Trion" is why these companies are 100% justified in treating their customers like a bunch of dumb asses.

    They delayed the name reservation again after delay of the delayed delay. Not just one day or two, but whole week.

    Expect more stuff like this to come.

    This is just a tip of the iceberg. 


    Gamigo is extremely incompetent due to lacking staff that knows how to run online games that are not dinky mobile crap that can run in the cloud. 

    They tried to move ArcheAge to cloud (as that's the only thing they know how to manage because its hands off on the server end) and they failed spectacularly multiple times.

    So they are forced to do something they are not good at- which is host ArcheAge on physical servers themselves. 

    This will be Gamigos undoing- lack of ability to host ArcheAge effectively

    You say stupidity, I say people not having games to play. The price isn't that high to give it a try, you're not losing much.

    Comparing playing a game to getting raped IS extreme, and defending that notion is extremely stupid.

    the only problem with this theory is that ..

     Rift servers running fine

      Archeage servers ( i just logged out ) running fine  erhmmm   cough cough...

       Defiance ... check

       Trove .. check

        and if you take the time to browse there forums of other games there is nothing out of the ordinary relative to this inability to host .. Lets also keep in mind that they have in the past hosted Anarchy Online successfully and Fallen Earth ..  among others ...

      any other false Black Knight narratives ,..

    Even if this turn out to be 100% legit and they never put anything op in the cash shop, I already paid $150 for this game and will not pay again.

    So did I and many others .. But you paid Trion that 150 , and they failed to deliver along with there bait and switch ..

      Trion is who you should be angry with ..

      Im just glad that Gamigo purchased there IPs and is keeping them up and running , Thats great news for the communites of all those games ..

       That being said i certainly feel that i got my 150 worth out of the AA launch as did play heavily for 2 years .. thats 75$ a year .. hmm thats less than .25 +/- a day .. yea so ...


        Now Gamigo has a chance to deliver what most AA players wanted from day 1 .. for the low entry fee , il give them a chance ..

      Looking forward to the launch

    I was told less than 10mil - dont know the exact figure.

    Trion was valued at over 400mil at the time.

    Cents on the dollar.

    Most of the cost was to cover a portion of Trions debt- so not like that money went into Trion, it didnt, so they bought the debt to allow Trion assets to operate while they bought new offices and moved out the datacenter to cloud (not all of it was successful)

    Was basically a last minute ditch effort to save them from shutting the doors down.

    Gamigos entire effort was to acquire ArcheAge publishing rights - they realized that was worth the few million they spent as they knew they could make a lot more off that.

    This is why they have not rehired and invested into Trions other games - they dont see any of them as worth investing into - just put them in maint mode and let them die, which is exactly what has happened.

    You didnt look hard enough in the forums.

    Defiance is a dead game - been migrated to cloud.

    Rift - dead - migrated to cloud.

    Trove - almost dead - still hosted. 

    AA - migration to cloud failed in 4 different attempts - hosted out new Gamigo colo datacenter.

      Pop has nothing do with if they can host a server , way to move goalposts , but that is normal for you ..

        AA Unchained they are already needing more servers..

      Trove pop is still good , altho .. i dont like the game myself .. You on the other hand held it in such high regard , Gamigo has not changed Trove much at all since the Trion buyout ..  sour grapes ..?

        Defiance/ D 2050  still has the same pop it had under Trion , was just playing 2 weeks ago .. Not great but sufficent and folks always show up for the big events .. that spawn acrosss the map .. matter fact the competiton is heavy for kills on those ..

       Rift i checked out for a couple weeks just after the Takeover , and there was constant world chat , most in regards to the Buyout ..

      AA Unchained is anticipating a pretty good pop at launch , and after the ormal launch issues it should settle into a strong pop game .. 



            Not much sadder than a White Knight turn Black knight because there pet Dev failed them ..

       Also very odd that you come here each day to piss on any thread relative to Trion Ips , wanting there failure , There are alot of people that are playing these games and want them to stay up and running ..
