Gamigo is surveying ArcheAge, Trove, and RIFT players about monetization

Psst. Hey. Do you have opinions? Strong opinions? Strong opinions about Gamigo’s games? Of course you do. Gamigo would like to hear them. I bet you’d like to deliver them.

This morning, the sprawling EU MMO company posted up a message on the ArcheAge Twitter with a survey of players. It’s not just for ArcheAge players, mind you; I spied several other former-Trion and Aeria Games MMOs in there, including Trove, RIFT, and Defiance 2050. Oh, and ArcheAge is separated from ArcheAge Unchained.

Do note that the survey will ask for some personal details, plus what types of games you play, platform details, which Gamigo titles you play, how you feel about their handling, how much you spend on them, and whether you think that’s a solid value. A fair number of the questions focus on the cash shop, so it’s worth wondering whether Gamigo is planning some more monetization overhauls. Give ’em hell, fam.

I didn’t leave AA 2.0 because of the monatization. I left because the game has become a hellacious dailies grind to stay relevant. If they could have put some sort of gear score soft cap and slowly increased it over time so that casuals with lives could stay relevant without being daily slaves I probably still would be playing. Sure I could play the game like farmville and not care but then id just be 1 shot by everyone else when im in the conflict zones. Its the same reason I cant get into BDO. Its a shame all the “sandbox” games feature uncapped unlimited gear grind.

Players are pretty much never going to stop complaining about monetization or value per dollar. This isn’t some sort of high horse judgement, I certainly do it myself (looking at you subscription model). However we’ve repeatedly proven if companies do cater to us and do make changes we’re just going to find something else to complain about.

This is true, but if better monetization/value is coupled with follow up content updates (for Rift at least, cant speak on the other games) , it’s a step in the right direction in general.

I would hate to be the person on the other end of these surveys.

I understand surveys but asking you for personal info as a req is at least bad and what if I or anyone request to delete this info under EU privacy policy. They are an EU based company after all, they should know that.

I can’t imagine anyone is going to put their actual information.

I hope they enjoy the response from Mr. Nota Fukinchance of the country Yes, who can be reached via email at a@a.aaa

Why cant someone just rip off Archeages gameplay features so we can play that instead? Blizzard ripped off what came before it, polished it, and won the MMO race.

Be like Blizzard.

Makes sense for Rift. It feels like they’ve done more work on the cash shop compared to the entire rest of the game since they picked it up.

Probably looking to squeeze what little blood remains in the stones before giving them the Atlas Reactor treatment.

Get ready for increased monetization in AA:Unchained. Testing the water to see just how far they can push it in the first bump up.

I mean… sure but the game is rather dead already. So tbh it really wouldn’t matter either way.

The unpunished exploiting killed the economy and game long ago.

How about a survey asking about making new content, you want my money you better give me a reason to spend it.
