A lot of those people who have dumped real money into the game find it harder to walk away. That's another thing. They will become defenders of the game and try to convince others to play.

 

 

Perhaps a better view would be looking at all the people who have found no need to spend any real money to fully  enjoy playing this game beyond the original patron status ,,,,for every fool that dumps real money into a cash shop there are a 100 folks that don't ,,,,ALWAYS AMAZING THE HATERS just don't get the facts a 100% accurate isn't it ?

Nahh that's nothing, I've been bashing this game since before it released, I've never even created an account for it.

and the sad thing is you actually made that post ...sort of sets a value on any post you make doesn't it ?

My wife and I could not past the first 10 min of game play. Between the bad avatars, the way they walked and moved. Combat was really bad as well. Maybe it gets better at higher levels but I just could not stick around to find out. FYI that was the fastest I had judged an MMO, I normally give it a few days of game play. 

Can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear ,,,,,,too difficult a game for the average theme park spoon fed player to even get started at

Honestly, like, 80% of this video is just sailing around in a ship.  Not even doing anything else on that ship (no naval combat, no fishing, etc).  Just... sailing around on the darn thing.

 

Sure, Archeage's water graphics are quite nice, but if the purpose of this video is to get people to join the vid maker in "this fantasy world", I'd like to think most people would stop and consider "Gee, MMORPGs should be about more than just sailing around."

 

....but yea, like I said in my previous post, to be really representative of AA there really needs to be more PvP combat in this vid and housing/farming (which again, makes me think the vid owner doesn't even own a house in the first place).  Of course, the pessimist would also say that the vid should have tons of people hacking and exploiting to be TRULY representative of Archeage but another poster already said that in this thread.

Look at the bright side  80% of the folks that post in these forums never played the game to begin with ....I find this video about as accurate as most of the posts here anyways so bullshit goes both ways

Maybe that's because this is a propaganda trailer suggesting you will be part of a strong community.

my point proven

 

"majority of posters on this site" ...

To be honest that's not really a bad thing

Actually now that most of the F2P crowd  and theme park  cowboys are gone it has become a strong community

 

ps ..... Loosing WOW kiddies didn't hurt the community either

good catch Forgrimm ...looks like the OP should try a little research before his posts

the exact same thing . 

 

What amazes me is players who duped APEX and got

1000s of credits etc were allowed back into game.

 

one could say they did me a huge favor tho right . Having

huge amount of fun in the new WOW expansion.

 

If Black Desert isnt pay2win ill play that . Any game which is

pay2win I will avoid like the plague in future.

Better stick to RPG's then ,,,LOL haven't seen an mmo yet that wasn't pay to win

Odd isn't it 10 million subscribers and only 3.3 million buy the expansion ....does that mean 6.7 folks aren't even playing the expansion?

Quick answer ...as North Americans we are so far behind we think we are ahead ...no need for a combat queue in a modern world

Obviously XL doesn't want to spend time coding this for whatever reason.

Either way - Trion had to come up with a different solution to compensate which obviously wasn't planned.

Also the fact that they can do discounts on their own gamea shows that again this is XLs issue.

 

Again OPs real agenda isn't to simply "report the news" - that's an excuse - the real agenda is obvious.

Do you work for Trion? Seriously dude, they have mismanaged the hell out of this game and every post I see from you is defending them. Amazing.

There are 2 sides to every story - this forum is heavily skewed toward one side and it's not even accurate 

 

What is not accurate about my OP? Stop accusing people of lying.

I don't think it's lying he's accusing you off ...but you can twist it any way you want I guess

The main issue is if they start using certain exploits that make it impossible to refresh the owners' mark, like some people are doing.  Yet another "free choice" gameplay aspect of Archeage that's gone to hell due to exploiters.  Though IMHO "freedom to be an asshat" cases like these are detrimental to a game's life in general even if exploits weren't involved.

Often a fine line between idiot and asshat ,,,,,sounds more like a case of greed on both sides of the coin in this case

I agree with you, but they are 2 different points. There is the ratio of cheaters in any given game then there is the impact that those cheaters can have on the game. I was only addressing the one issue in response to another post.

In all honesty, the entire argument to compare P2W in AA to P2W in WoW is a ridiculous one. There is no comparison. When a new or returning player joins or re-joins WoW, there is virtually no impact on his/her game play by those who are using RMT (cheating or not) This is not the case with AA. Someone who is going to start playing or returning after time away has much to consider when it comes to how RMT and cheating has and will impact their game.

When I see someone saying if AA is P2W, then WoW is P2W too, it's just an attempt to deflect the issue of what's wrong with AA. These 2 games are on entirely different levels when it comes to the average player's experience and what they have to deal with from cheaters and RMTers.

Just out of curiosity .... How much AA have you actually experienced GeezerGamer ? I mean all these posts you have made are backed up by actual personal experience aren't they?

Then don't!

Two words, "Instant gratification"

Here is an idea, go play the game how it was designed, earn your gear, take your time, then you can be "competitive". Just because others are taking the "easy" route, doesn't mean you have to. The end result is the same but one is goal oriented and will give you a sense of accomplishment and the other Epeen with short term commitment. If you cannot get over what other players have and how fast they got it, that is a problem of your own and your own compulsive desires.

A lot of those same players who are buying their success will end up running out of goals and leaving anyway thus leaving those of us who are earning our items with plenty of goals and long term achievements.

Well said .........the fact that 90% of the folks that play the game have no need or interest in spending a single cent on labour potions just goes up in smoke with the forum warriors ...too bad what's such a huge issue to the forum  hater's is something almost never worried about by someone playing the game .

Do so at your own risk. It's against EULA in WoW. You can get prema banned. Even if you don't, You can lose that character you just bought when the original owner who ebayed it decides he wants it back claiming he hadn't been playing for years and his account was stolen when he proves he was the original owner. This has happened. Etc etc.

And then there is the whole scale of it. What percentage of AA players are cheating or paying to win vs. players in WoW who are cheating?  The majority of WoW players I know don't cheat like this.

You gotta love these arguments, really. The argument for ArchAge up until recently was that it wasn't P2W it was P2Faster. But that's ArcheAge. Because you can eventually get there (No, you really can't, but that was the argument anyway) However, when it's WoW (and it's cheating, not P2W) That rule seems to go out the window because there are players who ebay accounts. Now it's P2W even though, WoW would be (if it had a cash shop like AA's) the perfect example of P2Faster since just playing the game normally will get you where you want to be and it doesn't really take long either. So which is it? When it's AA, it's not P2W but WoW is P2W? Really?

 

Come on give your head a shake on this one .....the same brand of  asshats that cheated in Daoc cheated in WOW and every game since  .... and are the core cheaters in AA . The names may change but the nature of the beast doesn't ,looks to me like paying a monthly subscription  is p2w in most of your opinions but that's another matter indeed

All F2P games are pay to win, its the entire design fo the business model and why so many people despise it and your seeing a backlash against it now.

Actually any gear based  mmo is pay to win .....that's what keeps folks playing and chasing the carrot . If all gear was the same and the only difference was skill based combat 90% of the player base would quit as soon as they realized they were loser's

Originally posted by laserit 

People spending in AA's cash shop are playing by the rules and people buying gold in games like WoW are cheating.

 

P2W and P2CHEAT are two different things.

I sure hope you aren't trying to convince me AA's cash shop folks are anything close to the P2Cheat folks that have ruled games like WOW and her clones since 2004 ?

It's about the reality of ArcheAge. What's really going on in the game? Who are the players who are dominating everything? Who are the most accomplished players. Who owns the most land? Who has the most gold? And yes, who has the best gear? An then of course, How did they get it?

If the top players of AA got where they are due to RMT, then the game is P2W. If there are enough accomplished patrons at the top of the food chain who did not spend much, then that is the best argument for AA not being P2W. But unfortunately, this is very difficult to tell.

It would be interesting the see a breakdown of the top 100 most accomplished players in AA. And a list of the top 100 biggest spenders in AA. If the lists contain the same names, then you have your answer. But no one outside of Trio has access to such a list. 

Almost had me believing this post ....until the part about "no one outside of Trio has access to this list " and then it clicked on me again just like every other mmo since the start of the gender ... I'll bet Trion's 100 biggest spenders list in no way reflects the true 100 biggest spenders list .

Folks tossing around p2w slogans are living in glass houses because someone has paid cash  to beat you in every game played so far ....I'd be a lot less worried about a cash shop and AA then gold sellers and buyers everywhere else . 

Take WOW for example ,  I cant just go and spend $10k on gold and become the best PvPer in game .

 

In AA I can because the gear grades in AA are almost limitless . You could spend $1000 on this game and a guy with $10,000 is going to beat you .  

It comes down to who has the best gear really ,  How do you beat someone that takes 50% less damage and does 50% more damage .  Pretty hard .

Ahhhhh ,,,,bullshit could always buy a top level... top geared pve or arena player from the gold sellers and power levelling sites in WOW

This made me chuckle.

Friend of mine in my guild dropped a few thousand on AA early on.  Granted, he does play the game a lot and plays it smart, but with his early capital he got so far ahead of the average player, he is now full T3 (every slot).  He walks into the arena and KoonCoons people while chuckling about it in TS.  If we go out pirating he ravages people while not even being very good at pvp.  In every aspect of the game he is winning, and he does it because he payed RL money.

What's T3 gear ....Why wouldn't he have all T4 gear ?
