ArcheAge’s new event is all about shipping (and plundering) trade packs

    
25
Get pirated.
We want to make something clear: The new ArcheAge event which starts tomorrow, May 13th, and runs through May 16th is not specifically about piracy. At no time does the event say that you will be directly rewarded for piracy. But the event is all about delivering as many trade packs as possible via oversea routes, and the announcement is not exactly subtle about reminding players that those packs don’t have to leave on your ship, just be delivered on your ship.

So it’s not about piracy, but it really is.

Every player who manages to successfully deliver at least one trade pack will be awarded 20 Merit Badges (it’s on the account level, so it can only go to one character), but the five players who deliver the largest number will receive even more prizes, culminating in plans and supplies for a new ship. Which might make up for the number of ships you’ll lose trying to ship all of those trade packs. Just don’t be surprised if your overseas routes have greater than normal piracy this weekend, that’s all.

BritoBruno ok  you made a claim, but you didn’t have any facts to back it up. Please, attempt to change my view. I am a rational man that would enjoy a civil discussion on this topic.

I wish BDO would steal all the Naval awesomeness from this game and add it in :)

mttgamer I think it’s awesome how the forums are still in attempt to fool themselves in how this game is now.
Things like “P2Play faster” “Pay to go a bit earlier” are still tossed around because the game doesn’t sell GEAR. “Regrade still has a chance to fail” said one.
hehehehehhahahahahaHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH++++
Ahhhh. I really don’t want to say that they deserve to get milked but i have to say it’s hard to feel pity for the sane man who for the sake of consistency in his views, punctures his very eyes.

Armsbend BritoBruno teppic It is specially funny when you remember that the entire age of mercantilism and ships to new worlds was pretty much funded by banks, and entire countries were in debt because of that.
AHOY FOR NEW LANDS! And please, let’s not come back, i owe some guy money.

Smiggins pigluck Well, considering Trion’s precedent before this game, we can’t really blame him.

Wow so instead of 2-3 trolls camping off the coast there will 10-11 trolls camping off the coast.  Lovely.  Thankfully my brief stint vs pirates involved pirates who sucked.

MesaSage I don’t think anything has made me groan louder than seeing that. It’s almost like they enjoy being transparent about wanting to bleed people dry.

I was once a believer. I spent big bucks on this game prelaunch. Now I cannot wait for it to go tits up like a ship sunk by a bunch of whale-ass pirates.
