Trion makes amends for ArcheAge’s dolphingate

    
104
I cannot believe dolphingate is a thing. How is reporting on this my job. How would I explain this to my grandpa. Or my grandkids when I'm old.

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.

WildarX Yes, You figured it out. There is a secret society of gamers that have banned together to take down Trion at any cost. We flood the forums with negative and unjustifiable disdain towards them in hopes to end their existence! We will not stop until everything Trion does is removed from every gamers computer!! 

Seriously though, when Trion continues to fail at almost every attempt to rectify this game and it’s issues you just can’t help but rubbing some salt in the wounds.

Gylnne NobleNerd The need to optimize the game engine for better overall performance. Las I played the dx11 wasn’t functioning for many and thy had to resort to dx10 or 9 to even play the game without graphical and performance issues. The combat system has no lag tolerance control server side to make game play smooth. The have many coding issues for hackers and botters to exploit. AND Trions overall handling of this game would have to improve for me to even trust them again.

MrFester  When you understand that Trion operates its games (and employees) with a
revolving door business model, then it becomes easier to see why.

Something similar happened in Fantasica, they had an exclusive unit (Bristol) they were originally only giving to people who had quit playing for several weeks while “rewarding” active players with a weaker, not a cool looking monster (Giselle).  The community raged and they eventually wound up giving Bristol to every player.

See for yourself the differences between the two.
