We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

 Pretty much this.  I just do not get the Asian culture and nor do I ever care too, they are as different as you can get from Western culture but that's not a bad thing, it just means it isn't my type of game.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

Well there aren't really any AAA mmo titles slated for 2013 anymore, but unfortunately for Archeage I would think it won't release 2013 either.  Sure Wildstar hasn't said anything official but based on how far along they are with their testing and so forth I don't think there is any way they are coming out this year.  Add the speculation of Everquest Next likely dropping late this year (maybe) or early next year (probably somewhat likely), along with ESO and Wildstar and yeah, Archeage is probably going to be up against a lot of competition.

I think both games offer a huge amount.

 

However, the game that releases first is probably going to make the largest wave..

 

Each game has it's own playstyle though, so I'll be playing them both.... but for some others, game investment is easily obtained!

I don't think timing is a key to the games success

-dumbed down crafting.....scheduled keep fights ...for me ...have greatly diminished my interest....And I wish it weren't so.

What makes me doubtful about this game is Trion. I really have almost no confidence in them at this point. That strange sudden dropping the ball on warface, Defiance is a flop, they had to make rift f2p to keep that ship from sinking. They just keep closing offices and losing on every level. It is hard to imagine them getting AA out in any reasonable time frame if even at all. It looks like an interesting game, but I'm not holding my breath that's for sure.

Companies reorganize all the time, so that doesn't worry me at all,  they bit off more then they could chew.  The games you listed were the part that they bit off and they were of their own making. Archeage is not there baby, they are just hosting and I'm sure when the got exclusive rights to the game XL asked about the health of the company. I also don't thing Rift going F2P is a big deal, again just another way to reorganize the revenue steam and breath life back into a stalling game.

Warface wasn't their project either, and they just randomly dumped it off their website refusing to comment on anything to anyone. I'm not sure if I'd call closing 2 of I think 4 offices reorganizing. Sounds like corporate speak for we are in big trouble. Rift only stands to lose even more market share with all the new games being released in the next 6-9 months. Hopefully they can get AA out, but I'm a little skeptical about Trion right now.

I must agree with the OP, however the picture is not as bleak as it appeared when that post was made.

The major "sandbox" competitor for AA is EQ:Next, and that game is not launching this year. I'm sure Trion will finish the localisation of AA before the end of 2013.

 

But there will be quite a few high profile MMO's launching in the next 6 months, and that could definitely hurt AA. I'd imagine there's a large group of players who may give AA try if it launches in a "dry period", but would probably ignore it if it's close to another major launch.

They should forget about NA and focus on eastern market. Jake Song should be ashamed because his first creation, Lineage 1, still kicks butts making 60-85 million dollars a quarter and still P2P 15 years after its launch while AA already went F2P in east.

 

They need to leave the western model of MMOs that just results in vaporwares and start making MMOs that last again.

The only real problem with timing.. is if you take to long to get into a market.. something us may show up before you.   If a decent product does come and people get invested into it.... then you have a problem. (edit:  this is in regards to the idea of the cost to put the game in this other market (NA in this case) compared to the amount of customers you might get aka cost vs potential income and if profit can exist.)

 

It also depends on how large/well the game is in the East.   I mean when EQ1 used to be the biggest thing out there... that was only true in the west.   L1 as far as I know had a much larger customer base but couldn't really take off outside of the Eastern market. (I remember when WoW was at its PR peak for sub numbers... 2 or 2.5 million was the tops for NA which is huge compared to other MMO's but just think of the entire NA market in relation to its total numbers).

 

So it kind of comes down to whether its really worth it for them to even develop AA for the west....   <-  I don't know the answer to that.. its just the way I'd look at it.

Everybodys talking as if EQN is about to be released. It isn't! Smed promised in his keynote speech, EQN for the Sony show next year. You can bet it will be later. So we are probably looking at Christmas 2014 for EQN. AA really only has another sandboxy (EVE) type game as a direct competitor - I dont see a new one anywhere at the moment. I am hoping that Trion gets their finger out and delivers AA by Christmas this year (hope dies last..). Having played AA in Korea I am just wishing the NA version is not changed from the KR version. It is finally a game I can get my teeth into and is both PVP and PVE wise a lot of fun.

You can please some MMO-players all of the time and you can please all MMO-players some of the time but you can't please all MMO-players all of the time.

As has been said - "timing is everything". Trion needs to release AA before EQN or at least 3 months afterwards (when the fair weather patriots start leaving) or AA is doomed to poor numbers. I do think that there will be a small group of dedicated sandboxers that will love this game but Trion must time their release so that as many players as possible will try it and that means avoiding EQN.

From what I have seen AA is another Asian grinder/griefer. These type of MMOs, even with the major sandbox elements that are shown in AA, do not interest me. Yup, I am back to playing WOW and SWTOR so judge my opinion from that.

You know whats the funny thing? That those like you who haven't played the game, nor did enough research and keep calling it as "another Asian grinder/griefer", while those who are playing/played it calling it as an "another almost themepark"!

Timing means nothing to me. Whenever it comes out I will play it. But Trion is frustrating in that they pipe up after a couple months if sience to post a promo vid, then disappear. Then come back only to say it's goibg to take a while. They are lucky that people are putting up with that.

Trion has been going through complete company restructure so now that Hartsman is back and has cleaned house, I expect more updates. ArcheAge wont have much competition as EQN is at least 2 years out.

 No it wont because none of those games are like AA.

If someone is wanting a sandbox, they are not going to chose FFXIV or Wildstar over it. And personally, I don't care if it does "well" in the western market as long as they are willing to merge servers with the east if it doesnt. Their PvPers are better and the communities are stronger with far fewer trolls and trash like we get in the west. Far too many WoW kiddies populate western games dragging the community down...thankfully they rarely play anything from the east and will avoid AA in the first place.

Hartsman better pull his finger out and speak up soon, because with all the current noise about Wildstar, ESO and EQN, AA has all but disappeared from people's radars.

 

Announcing a F2P payment model for AA will really cause a storm at this point
