ArcheAge’s server merges will spark another land rush

But this'll clear those population problems right up, I'm sure.

When ArcheAge first announced that there would be some sort of server consolidation, players were understandably nervous. Merges can be a messy business at the best of times, but when you have a game with limited land and a huge amount of pressure to get that land, there’s a very real fear that you might lose all of your land. The bad news is that in the official server evolution thread (and yes, they’re really just merges), Trion has confirmed that there will, in fact, be another land rush on the servers.

This comes on the heels of a castle-based issue that has been found in the game: When a castle is removed, it’s possible for another guild to immediately place a new castle on a different lodestone, even if players had already claimed the land around that (inactive) lodestone for personal use, creating a very real chance for players to lose their lands. With the importance of housing and the difficulty in getting land in ArcheAge, this is an issue that will need to be addressed sooner rather than later, certainly well before the server merges take place.

SallyBowls1 The forums at Archeage are far from happy,  pages and pages of posts disappear daily.  I stopped reading them as well as posting, as apparently they are unable to face an adult post logically and just remove my posts.

SallyBowls1 Their forums weren’t very happy when I stopped playing. Probably because even some of their white knights were bailing on them at that time (that speaks volumes) and they were just banning people posting anything too critical and/or working overtime burying/deleting posts/threads.

Inanis They criminally defrauded all their pre-launch Archeum Founder Pack customers and didn’t give a crap. That should be your clue as to how TRION treats their customers: with utter contempt. Your only recourse is to try a charge back but it’s probably too late for that.

After being defrauded by TRION during the pre-launch Archeum Founder Pack debacle, I made them delete my Glyph account. I’ll never, EVER, give any money or business to TRION again. Fraud, shameless money-grabs, lies, more lies, botched launches, botched patches, refusing to fix game-busting bugs and treating their own customers with utter contempt. They are the definition of corporate sleaze. A sad end to a once decent gaming company.

I’ll take bugs and exploits over having my virtual house suddenly disappear in a server merge.

BritoBruno DamienChristopherFraley Exactly what the AA community is talking about.  Land hackers are still running around in the game.  I still stick by what I said earlier though…I don’t think the land rush will be as it was during launch.  I don’t believe there are nearly as many players interested in AA as there were at launch.  

The servers will “merge”.  There will be a land rush.  I don’t want to do it for a third time but I really do enjoy the game.  I have quite a bit of land in game but it’s taken me since launch and quite a bit of luck, time and negotiating to acquire.  This isn’t a good thing for the game (at least not right away) but we all knew Trion would have to do this one day.  :(

DamienChristopherFraley What a bunch of crap. Everyone who got their land fair and square needs to go on another landrush, without any of the landhackers problems being solved.
So, most people will LOSE their crap, while some whales and hackers will win.
And most of people MADE suggestions. Trion didn’t heard them.

Even if you were willing to put up with this shit and do it all again they can just merge again a few months down the road and take it all away again.
