With ArcheAge’s new progression fresh start server going live today, players are raising concerns that Trion Worlds has slipped in pay-to-win elements in its cash shop mere hours before the shard’s activation.

Some of the questionable items that have appeared on the cash shop include dungeon run consumables, leveling consumables, best-in-slot pajamas, and combat consumables.

One major ArcheAge content creator, Paradox Gaming, called Trion out on Twitter for the last-minute move: “Its not to late to save this fresh start launch of ArcheAge. You have time to fix the ‘pay to win’ that has hit the fresh start marketplace. The community wants to hear that all is not lost for ArcheAge. What say you @hartsman? Can we get a public statement on AA FS P2W?”

Lol, they fear.

Fear is a emotion, knowledge is…well, knowledge. They KNOW it will. Specially since Trion cashes a LOT on fresh AA servers.

Trion IS a p2w infection.

AA players have every reason to hold those fears and literally zero reasons to trust Trion.

Many of us called it when we heard Trion was going “Fresh Start” with AA.

“Trion Fresh Start Servers: Fresh Tricks, Fresh Traps.”

Man, it really does feel like a while since Archeage had a dust-up. I feel a bit more at ease with the world now. Bummer for folks who care, but at this point with the game I feel like this should be expected : /

Read something about there being unlimited regrades or something in the cash shop as well…like you could buy regrades for 30g and buy gold by selling APEX. Guy in the reddit thread says Korea limits uses to once per day, but Trion doesn’t, so rich people (provided they can find enough buyers for their apex) and BiS their gear in days…or something.

this server hasn’t opened yet so the cash shop isn’t confirmed yet.

You can expect Trion to keep the changes and say that XL is making them do it, when Trion has 100% control of marketplace.
