During its official ArcheAge stream earlier today, Trion Worlds explained just how it will make amends to its players for the dolphingate fallout — dolphingate being, of course, what the internet has decided to call Trion’s controversial decision to bestow arguably excessive gifts on former players, including a rare dolphin mount it insisted was merely cosmetic. Last night, the studio agreed it had “missed the mark” with the promotion; today, it’s outlined its plans going forward.
Reddit user Vyntares transcribed those plans: Community appreciation rewards will be given to all players regardless of their status. Free players will receive a number of items including chests, labor tickets, tonics, and library indexes, while paying patrons are walking away with all that and then some, with a stack of potions, lucky points, essences, plus starlight glider customization and naturally that cyanfin mount. You get a dolphin and you get a dolphin and we all get dolphins!
Reddit is pleased with Trion’s tribute.[Source: Reddit. Thanks again, Kinya!]
