ArcheAge’s heroes have finally awoken

    
56

Did you miss the ArcheAge clusterfudge over the weekend? After two days of preparation offline, the servers came back up Saturday only to crash and burn thanks to login and cinematic issues, which forced Trion to postpone the launch an extra day and resulted in rollbacks for those few people (10%) who did manage to log in. (Rolling back the servers, you’ll note, is a fairly new ability for Trion, which was previously unable to perform it.)

The rollout of the patch went off yesterday, split by region and server type, which was presumably intended to calm the login land rush brought on by the server merges introduced by this patch. Though some of the servers quickly capped and offered only queues to those logging in, many players in our comments and across Reddit and the official forums report being able to reclaim a significant portion of their land.

Information on a compensation package for the downtime and rollback is expected this week.

I think this should be a lesson to publishers. Avoid Korean games.

Robert80 Armsbend It’s a world with magic.  Perhaps someone wielding magic on one or both boats are adding additional drag on the cannonballs in an attempt to make them hit or miss….

This weekend Trion made the CORRECT decision and shut the servers down once they saw a large portion of players could not log in. Rolling back and announcing a new start time was also the RIGHT CALL. People complain about 1037493280 with this game. My 1 and only problem was on operations team who didn’t understand the type of game they were operating. Clearly they’ve learned.
Everyone in-game seemed to be happy with it too. I also will say capping Harani and Firani on Morpheus was a good call too. When you have this type of Sandbox PvP game, that is EXACTLY the things you SHOULD BE DOING to ensure balance.
Needless to say, they worked hard for the hundreds of dollars I threw at them last night (SHUT UP… I WANTED A THATCHED FARMHOUSE AND WANTED IT NOW!!!).

extremexcarver Higgens I know math, a bit. Physics, Unless its a forum debate about cannon balls, its NEVER come up in my life. Carpenters and craftsmen have little need of it. 

Also your snide remark at my sincere question its not appreciated or necessary.

Styopa Higgens Armsbend It kind of helps, I mean I appreciate the effort, that all ends up being sanskrit to me.

As far as the boat size goes. Its called a galleon, in game. Thats as much of an argument I got.

Dr_Sweers direpath jefreahard Rohirrim The houses and farms always made my OCD go into overdrive. Houses next to each other faced different directions, a house facing diagonally in a row of houses facing frontally, wasted space between lots. They could just have houses/ farms lock into place facing a pre-set direction. Although the idea of someone who can tidy up how housing zones looked is a great solution too.
