Who here would like to start from square one in ArcheAge Unchained? You’re going to be getting your wish this coming Thursday, March 25th, because that’s when new Fresh Start servers arrive to the game. More details are set to be shared soon, but the post confirms that there will be one NA server and one EU server and it will have similar restrictions as other Fresh Start servers, limiting auction houses and instancing to each server’s population only.

On the subject of servers, ArcheAge Unchained server merging officially kicked off as of yesterday, with downtime expected to run for 49 hours after some successful pre-preparation. Players are reminded that the free-to-play servers for ArcheAge will undergo their own server merging “shortly after” Thursday, March 11th, according to the FAQ.

As soon as the company acquires the games people disappear from it.

LMFAO.

“Now that you all have paid for server transfers, we’re going to merge servers”.

“Since the well ran dry on server transfers, we’re having two fresh start servers.”

Translation: Hey get over here with that bucket, we gotta milk this cow for all she’s worth before she dies!

“Yeah sure they lied about paid DLC´s but it´s not that bad…”

Dear AA Players,

Please stop playing this dumb game and let it die. You are making the MMORPG Population as a whole look like idiots.

Signed, The rest of us.

This post reminded me ArcheRage exists.

It’s also a cashgrab, yet it’s better as a server.

AA really is doomed.

people complain on Arch age with their new servers or paid DLC but at least they are not selling you skillpoints or let you rent skills points or in this game becuse it´s a diffrent mmo they don´t try to make new player rent a level 50 charter for real money.

So honestly I can name a few games that is worse than how Arch age is being handled. Yeah sure they lied about paid DLC´s but it´s not that bad I mean FFXIV and ESO ask you to pay 40-60 euro for a new expansions well they don´t like about but payed expansions for mmos is old.

@ThePeon25
You seem to be trying awfully hard to defend Archeage here. If your main arguments come down to, “There are a few games that are worse” (meaning there are TONS that are better) in regards to nasty monetization schemes, you’re not really putting the game in a positive light.

And if you’re trying to say FFXIV is at all unsavory with regards to expansions and pricing, I really think you’re barking up the wrong tree. There’s basically no p2w in that game; you pay your monthly sub + an extra 40-60 euros every 2 years for an expansion, and in return everyone is on an even playing field. If that pay model is old, I long for the old days.

Nowadays, as you mentioned yourself, people have to weigh out how much of their wallet they want to lighten when gauging how much power they want to buy. The equivalent of 15-17 euros/month for a virtual world where competition success is measured by time, effort, and skill rather than how susceptible I am to gambling and slot machines. It’s not that I can’t afford to dump several hundreds of dollars per month to “be the best”, I just choose not to. I choose to avoid games where it is quite possible to dump HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of dollars into gaining virtual power. It makes me sick and sad that this is what game development has become.

lol. How much did Gamigo pay you?

You think that a shitty company who killed more mmo´s this year than you ever have had sex could afford to pay some one to talk good about them. Then you sorely mistaken. I was never even trying to defend them or anything if that´s what you small mind would think I was just referring to I seen far worse handling of games. But every one that think Gamigo is the worst have never played any other mmo´s.

Here is a little secret tip. If you don´t like it don´t fucking play it, don´t talk about it and don´t give them any money.

I didn’t think AA had the money to pay astroturfers any more, I guess I was wrong?

Hint: I know it’s probably more expensive, but someone with a passing knowledge of written English might be a good investment.

I love how people, hilariously, think they’re being so coy and smart with that ‘insult’

Which insult? Calling him an astroturfer, or suggesting that AA was running out of money?
