I dunno, the “risky trade run” seems to be at the heart of the game.

Most of the impressive naval stuff they put in would lose it’s value without PVP.

The PVE combat seems to be strictly a low-budget diversion aimed at those familiar with more typical MMOs.

The nice thing about “trade run PVP” is the actual combat is an afterthought, meaning the hard core don’t have an extreme advantage over the casual.  Timing and intel are more important. I think more games should look into this mechanic.

Sorry… I could not follow some of that. I understand mistakes. I am just not prepared to spend a lot of time and money and have it be for nothing because of someone’s mistakes.

If they cut out the pvp they’d probably get a lot more people playing. The building crafting farming sailing ect in one game is probably it’s most unique and strongest features. You can get crappy gank style pvp in just about any mmo.

Im pretty sure any explination would eventually boil down into something very similar to either time travel to make it never happen or magic.
Both are totally reasonable expectations apparently.

Daisame Now join the other games that don’t even have the option. Now you know why they never try. 
They’ve made some mistakes, but how some of you thought a server merge could happen with you keeping your exact land while sharing with 2 other servers is beyond me.

Mike in Melbourne Actually the PvE part is what keeps a number of people playing, so I am very glad they don’t make it all PvP!

I just cancelled my subscriptions with Archeage. No point paying for land just to have it taken away whenever they want. Done with the game.
