Thank God I refunded when I did. This game is both a) never going to release properly and b) never going to feature a fraction of what was promised. RSI is a total fucking scam, they're even feeding a sized media team with your backer dollars.
I feel ultimately that ArcheAge will reach a breaking point where the revenue coming in just isn't cutting it, and more can be made through cosmetic cash shop and subscription. When Trion realizes the real gravy train is in P2P with RP and ease of living enhancements (bag space, labor), the game will come back full swing. I bet shortly after 4.0 we will see major updates to Trion's money model.
