    Arche Age was a great game, but Trion, and now the new company isn't any better.

    They divde the community, made the game entirely Pay 2 Advance, even made many whales quit the game because even the original game just isn't even worth playing due to cash shop, player population, constant server mergers.

    Might as well wait for New World / Other MMO's and give them a try.

    You can't expect a company to update a game for nothing, you can expect them to be honest enough to say that's the case.

    Gamigo are the biggest scammers, con artists and most corrupt publisher of Online games in the West. They are even worse than Nexon.

    Whenever I read somewhere about Gamigo, it's either bad news or something massively insignificant that they actually believe to be a big deal.

    All their games are mediocre and Ironsight hasn't even received content updates since 2019. I know SWG and WoW private servers with custom content that are receiving content updates more often.

    I have no intention of trying this as I hated the original iteration, but I had to check this post out because the wording confuses me. Is it a patch, is it a DLC, or is it an expansion? If I were someone playing this, then paying for a patch I would call unacceptable, IE fixes etc. If it's DLC or expansion, I would totally see having to pay for additional content, unless of course it's 95% fixes and 5% content, then I would raise a stink as fixes should be included with what people originally paid for. And for people upset about the pay once wording, you don't have to pay again to keep playing the original content, right? Guild Wars 2, as an example, B2P to begin with, with paid expansions, but you don't have to buy those expansions to play the original content you already paid for.



    Agreed. This article title is very misleading. I came in here expecting to hear they won't give owners of the game patches unless they pay, but it's about the expansion, not patches in general.

    Lets see.... last time they tried to revive game, about month ago, they had around 1200 players online, with "revive", player base jumped to almost 2000, and atm is 828 ^^according to steamcharts, and this is only steam...  so....lets give them another 6 months until they say "we run out of money, game is closing".

    Everyone's hating on them but sellout streamers *professional reviewers* who gladly promoted their garbage share an equal amount of blame to this.
  • MazenealMazeneal Member UncommonPosts: 60
    LMFAO......oh man! I wasn't sure how Gamigo would fuck this up, but this is rich! The game is probably one of the best MMO's of the last 10 years (minus the RNG aspects and the progression being tied into the revenue generation) , SO much potential, and I put way too much money into it. So, to me it was a slap in the face when they wanted me to buy the GD game again, so glad I didn't as I would be LIVID right now.......

    There's no monthly sub, there's no real mtx or cosmetics... do you want to continue playing this game? I have no problem with them having a b2p model, especially since there isnt a sub.

    I second this very statement and raise you three guacamole's.

    The industry is in full mental mode,they all want their INSTANT profits right up front right away,no risk involved.

    This is also the reason we see soooooooo many low budget crappy studios coming out of every nook and cranny,there is NO RISK.

    Also the typical platforms to deliver these thousands,millions of games are all in this for $$$$,every last one of them.The Facebooks,Twitters,Reddit's,Twitch,websites,YouTubers,all of them are trying to make money off of gaming.So NOBODY anywhere except the common gamer is complaining or telling it like it really is.

    So the industry just keeps churning along,crap game after crap studio,they just keep coming and to make matters worse is we get these asshats who just like to argue with anyone and try and make it about the "hater" "complainer"instead of just waking up and smelling the coffee.

    There are a LOT of dumb people out there helping to feed the problem which is money and greed.Even after they witness firsthand the COE debacle ,witness how much money SC is making w/o ever releasing a finished product and they will still try and ARGUE.

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

    "SEASONS" is the new era go to term to making more money.I see the word seasons and i think two things...scum and somebody been watching too much TV.

    Seriously the gaming industry seems to be full of VERY simple minds,we see a LOT of copy cat game designs,ideas stolen off of tv/movies,the only time i see creativity is how these peripheral money makers are going to advertise these products.However even that is getting stale....
    BEST 5 reasons
    top 5 mmorpg's
    Reviews
    Previews
    ongoing reviews
    Top 5 things i wish i knew
    PRO gamer does a reaction video
    Game designer does a reaction video
    Game engine maker does a reaction video to the new Unreal5

    There is a lot of bullshit going on in the industry right now,i just HOPE the average Joe is paying attention and sees it.

    didn't need to go that far the very game handling was abysmal to say the least.

    also note, when people who was patron and played since alpha, says the best time on the game WAS during alpha, you know how sh!t we are dealing with

    Love ppl who think consumer protection laws mean shit in the video game field. That stems from ppl not reading ToS and EULA. What they are doing is crappy, but it's not much different then wow.

    Oh really? Heres an example of consumer protection laws in action: https://www.archeagesettlement.com/

    Funnily enough, this is also an ArcheAge lawsuit. I guess they already forgot.

    What they should have said was that they needed to charge for large patches because they have to hire real programmers to do the work their company can't do.

    I don't have a problem paying for expansions, as long as the expansions are worth it for me to pay for. I've played a lot of games that has paid expansions. I didn't log on to MMORPG.com and cry about it.

    I don't recall anyone from the AAU team saying the players will never have to buy an expansion if they came out with one, so what's with all the tears?

    Except that....

    In this interview last year AAUs Merv Lee Kwai stated players would never have to. Props to MOP who recently shared this link in their news story, and actually have a link where they too were told this would never happen.

    "Ragachak: On the topic of payments, will players who purchase ArcheAge: Unchained on September 30th have additional expansion purchases at a later date (such as WoW/Final Fantasy expansions)?

    [mleekwai]: Nope. Future ArcheAge content updates/expansions will be provided free of purchase, as they always have been, on both the Legacy and the Unchained version. We have some exciting stuff coming up toward the end of this year and an amazing content roadmap planned for 2020 and beyond."

    Well there you have it. I suppose the players have a choice to make. Either suck it up and buy the expansion or forego the content that comes with it hoping the game doesn't need to money to keep servers going due to bad in game shop sales.

    They are cashing out what they can milk before shutting down.

    They are already paying youtubers who have nothing to do with Arche Age nor MMOs to do promo videos about it.

    Like Manslayer who is famous for goof youtube poop about Skyrim and Mass Effect.

    Just trying to fish people who buy on impulse.
