Archeage is here


As some of you maybe have discovered Archeage is now open for downloads.
So i made this thread for people to find other players and maybe to form a guild (Though i have one already)
Also just for general Archeage discussions.


I got a beta-invite not too long ago to that, didn’t really like it tho =(

Also I heard they changed the labor point system a whole lot, apparantly it’s more pay to win now =/


I mised my beta invite because i was sick with influenza :frowning:


I wasn’t super thrilled with beta either.

I was mostly interested in the crafting/farming system, and from what I heard, you have to pay to get a land plot. Is that the case?


Sadly yes, but it is one of the best free MMORPG’s out at the time which means i can get most of my friends to play it :slight_smile:
Also after what i understood from their FAQ it is an one time pay to get to own land which i am probably willing to pay.

If that is not the case you can share land with a paying user which means that i fx. can just pay for one profile with my little brother and then we make half the payment each.


all the points that drew me to archeage have now been made subscription only, kind of a big slap in the face if you ask me considering i beta tested heavily as a f2p player


Oh important stuff they have said here:

We are currently exploring options for allowing free accounts to also have the ability to build housing and pay taxes after ArcheAge launches while preventing abuse of this permission.


I was kind of looking forward to play it casually. But it’s impossible to play with these queues :wink:

This morning (EU time) I could play a little (home with sick child), but in the afternoon (around 15:45) I logged in to find me in a 2100 long queue. I guess the U.S. woke up… Now, 20:15 (4½ hours later), there’s still over 900 in queue until I can get in.

I’m not impressed :smile:


Yea i really thought that they would learn something from the 2-3 other MMORPGs that made the same mistake the last few years.


mmo publishers? learn what not to do with their f2p money farms? buwahahahahahahahaha


In fairness, it’s not like any sub-based MMOs are able to compete with WoW ATM :stuck_out_tongue: .

Day 1: "Yay our new MMO is out!"
Day 365: "We’re going F2P guys."
Day 730: "It was fun, but we’re shutting the servers down now."


Nope but Guild wars 2 is totally kicking it’s butt :stuck_out_tongue: Oh wait let us not do this please just forget i said that.

But seriously didn’t they learn anything from the guild wars crash 2 years ago ( Or around that i am not quite sure when it was)


Mmm. I’m not saying it’s a good or bad thing, but that’s just the way it seems to be ATM.

Me, I’ll just keep hitting things with my Ret pally (Alliance, Ravencrest EU BTW :stuck_out_tongue: ) until WoW ends or real life forces me to quit :frowning: .


Well, with 3500 people in queue (15 hours perhaps?) I guess I’ll just play Valkyrie WoW or make Minecraft movies instead :wink:


Some of my friends had a 27000 queue at some point :frowning:
