While Carbine had alot of ideas that didn't work out for WS, thinking that this game will suceed in China is easily among the "top 5 bound to fail ideas" they had.

Hmmm, i think i got a 7 day return to Wildstar code somwhere. I might go back and give it another shot. I was actually intrigued by this game.

If you can't find your key, try to write a ticket to the support - they are usually not shy to hand out a key or two. In any other case, leave me a PN and i gladly help you out with one (EU).

I voted yes, but still it depends on why someone left in first place. Was it the game that made you quit, was it that life happened, did all friends quit etc..

I bought WoD after i quit pre Cata. Added the key to my account but somehow hesitated to re-sub right away. Some days later i bought a gamecard and since then, i never seem to be in the right mood to really return to the game.

I imagine whales don't give a crap about PR.  Pay-to-win is actually a GOOD thing for them too, anyways. (consider that whales make up the majority of an F2P games' income if the game is pursuing the whaling strategy)

 

Where they might actually care is exploits where people get the same power as them for free.  Even then, that likely won't stop them from trying and paying for other Trion games.  Trion can always blame XLGames for the shoddy coding anyways.

There is no blaming XL - they are responsible for AAs server and client code 100%, that's not blaming thats a fact.

Look at Trions own games vs AA in terms of shoddy code and exploits - day and night difference.

As far as OP goes - CEOs are judged on financial performance by the board of directors- not forum posts - AA is a cash cow, Trion covered all localization costs back in Alpha via pack sales.

And who manages the cash shop which has been one of the worst in any MMO to date?

Trion runs the cash shop on their platform but XL approves all pricing. Trion cant set or change any prices without a nod from XL, also all items listed in the shop are driven by XL.

The servers that can't stay up?

Server uptime is Trions responsibility, server downtime caused by server code or security issues is XLs problem

Who decides when to put in certain features like intorducing Hasla weapons 2 years too soon? TRION does.

Completely wrong - XL coded those quests and weapons and they tell Trion what quests are on or off in the patches they send to Trion. Remember that Trion has ZERO access to game code which this is a game code issue 100%.

Who runs support for the game and takes 30+ days to answer a ticket? TRION does.

CS support is 100% Trions responsibility - I would say that your 30 day example is an exception not the norm.

Who accepts a deal to manage a game they had no developer rights to? TRION did.

Every publisher does when it comes to overseas games - You think SoE has development rights to Dragons Prophet??

 

So maybe you should just stop defending Trion, because at this point it is laughable when you do.

facts need to be brought up - as you can see from this very post you are mistaken in quite a number of points you made

I had a quest bug where I could not get the jury duty quest even though I had zero infamy and committed no crimes. I put a ticket in and a month later finally got an answer back amounting to "sorry, but we didn't develop the game and can't fix that, we will forward the bug report to XL Games." Seriously? Really? Who does this? I have been playing MMOs since UO and have never encountered so much BS as I did the few months of the Archeage debacle. This game is an MMO catastrophe, you and a few of your friends still playing it are the only ones who don't get it.

Again what happened to you is unfortunate, but it is an exception not the norm. I've never heard of anyone having this issue in my alliance.

As for Trion's record, they started out awesome with Rift but have run that game into the ground the past year or two. Poor management, period. Defiance just sucks so I won't even go there.

Opinions vary - I disagree with yours entirely

 

So DMKano, show me some links where you get your facts from.

It was covered in Thursdays twitch streams with Victoria Voss as well as podcasts and interviews.

Here is one to get you starte

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=n7JJFTSlZy8

DMKano you wrote:

"Trion runs the cash shop on their platform but XL approves all pricing. Trion cant set or change any prices without a nod from XL, also all items listed in the shop are driven by XL."

But the community manager Scapes says that Trion is pretty much in control and pricing:

Can you explain this?

 

Yes - look at the date of that post - lots have changed by the time the game launched. What scapes said was the information he was given at that time - it is outdated and wrong now.

Also - remember Scapes is a community manager - he is NOT the authority on anything - Victoria Voss as producer is the real source. Scapes is simply the mouthpiece - he simply states the info that is passed down to him from Victoria.

So again - watch and read interviews with Victoria - like the one I linked.

So according to that Trion has had control over cash shop content and pricing back then , but doesn't have it anymore today? Like XL just revoked those rights as if they were no fixed part of the endless negotiation about Trion's westernization of AA back then?

 

 

"What can we learn from Wildstar?"

I think the more important question is "What can Carbine learn from Wildstar?"

After all, they haven't learned anything from previous games during the 9yr development -so hopefully their own title taught them something by now.

WRONG! Trion's CEO needs to step up, not down! 

He needs to take on XL games head on and renegotiate to get the things that make Trion a great company into archeage

This! Honestly, I'd like to see him cut AA loose. Eat the loss in order to salvage Trion's reputation. 

 

Sometimes it's better to eat a loss then try to make something work that's been consistently broken. 

The assumption is wrong.

AA is not a loss - the total cost of Trion localizing the game was probably less than 2mil - they have made that money back via Alpha pack sales - so everything afterwards was pure profits.

Also if reputation had any meaning for game publishers EA would have been bankrupt years ago as having been voted "the worst company on Earth" - over and over again.

But if you look at EAs financials - they are more profitable than ever.

 

So the reality is - reputation for game publishers has zero actual relation to their profits and game sales.

Gamers are very fickle - they can curse you today and love you tomorrow - reputation means diddly squat - ask NcSoft, SoE, EA and Trion heh.

 

So his assumption is wrong because your "probably less than 2mil" is a fact.

I saw you coming up with that kind of your own logic numerous times when you came to defend Trion.

-someone else's opinion was wrong because your opinion was right

-someone's opinion was wrong because your guessed numbers had to be right

-someone's estimated numbers were wrong because your estimated numbers were right

and such spins.

tip: when blindly defending anything Trion, try to bring some actual FACTS to the table now and then. Perhaps that would help to actually counter some critics and at the end of the day you wouldn't have to defend Trion that much altogether.

 

 

 

IMO Trion has by now topped Funcom in overall incompetence and shadyness. And while things even went slightly better with Funcom, they continously get worse with Trion.

Not a week without another negative news.

"Well, I can't go into too much detail." -this sums up about everything official coming from Carbine.

It takes them ages to deliver the smallest things (look at the latest patch) while they can never say anything definitive about future plans.

The game is on ebay for a bargain since forever.

Carbine delivers content at snailspeed and seem to have no real direction for it. It's like they have a team of 4 people working on content. Many official posts are as vague as it gets and often read like

"we are doing something atm, but we can't say what or when it will hit the game. then there is another team also currently doing something we can't talk about at this point..and we have changes planned for something but don't know when they'll get patched in. oh, and there is another thing but we can't say when it will be ready."

Carbine is all talk.

Is it better then Cata? Yes, levelling experience wise


Is it better then MOP? Yes, levelling experience wise


Is it the best expansion eva? No, not by a long shot, it peaks very early and then becomes tedious. 


The reviewer is still overcome with garrison hype. The game has the same grind and tedium it had before, just behind the, 'garrison', wall rather then the dailies or key grind wall.


The garrison is the only real new feature in this expansion and it's fun at first but then it becomes the same old wow format, 'need this, to grind this, for this most benefit, which is best for pvp/raiding'. That of course takes rather a while to get while the new dungeons are okay but not amazing.


The levelling experience is great, (although the story forgets it's principal characters at times), but after that it's the same old WoW.


I've played WoW for years, this is the first expansion I've quit after two weeks, why? Lack of investment or caring for the rest of it. For me WoW has run out of tricks and just doesn't, 'do it', for me anymore. 





 

These points are just what keeps me from going back to WoW for WoD. I bought the addon, got a gametimecard and was ready to jump right in when something said "wait a few weeks..."

At first i was amazed by the seemingly overall coherent concept of garrisons, but on a second look it looks like nothing more but a grindy browsergame which you will have to play over and over again the same way for every character. Something that was fabricated to keep players logging in and harvest their herbs every day to make sure WoW won't lose subs at lightspeed like MoP did.

I played many alts back then and i'm not sure garrisons are fun doing them the third time. The other addons gave me various pathes to go and routes to chose for every character, but WoD seems to be all garrison for every one of them.

Since i don't play atm, of course i can't speak of first hand experience and might be wrong here, but this is how it looks to me after having followed WoD closely since launch.

So much for AA, huh Archeage2014?

 

?????

ArcheAge is a niche game - and it's doing great. All the servers were high pop tonight.

 

Because most likely Trion has tweaked the thresholds. It's a common move to them, they already did that with Rift back then.

While players all across the board are reporting that the population went down hard and realms are low to mid, suddenly after a server reboot all realms are "high" pop.

ah cool, is it a toggle or a temp buff? sorry trying to pick between war/DK and druid for my lvl 90 booster. Have not touched WoW since MoPD launched.

It is the defijning base ability of the demonology specced warlock, also grants you special abilities.

Good to see that for once they donate 100% instead of their usual 50% cash in under the guise of charity.

OP, if you have any news that you think is worth it, you can always submit it here: http://www.mmorpg.com/newsroom.cfm

Also keep in mind that bad news about AA and Trion has become a daily business for month. If this site would cover those every time, people would complain about nothing else being featured and the latest news charts being occupied by AA topics only.

Also, most of the time these issues only get covered in an article by some freelance writer and very rarely by this site's staff. So, for bad news getting some coverage the OP probably has to wait for some freelance write-up.

However, people on the forums already do a good job to constantly post about the latest issues and Trion just keeps them coming. Guess we haven't really missed a thing so far.

I think that after

-Rift "not in Azeroth anymore" circling the drain even before StormLegion, forced to go F2P and now relying on lockbox gambling since nobody wanted to sub

- the utter failures that were End Of Nations and Defiance in their own respective ways

-copying Cubeworld and naming it Trove

-more than one round of lay offs-

- closing of San Diego,  since Defiance couldn't carry it's own studio

-the company probably dodging bankruptcy by a fraction of an inch

they eventually realized that making games is not their strongest department.

 

So why not rather publishing games of other studios? Sounds like easy and quick cash for which you neither have to do sh*t nor care in any way -and in fact AA has been just all that for Trion. Didn't work out so well with Crytek and Warface though, as Crytek likely saw the writings on the wall back then.

 

In soviet russia, the weapon wields you!

I'm surprised the thread made it this long without being locked or deleted and the OP warned/banned.

Usually speaking out against Trion on these forums grants you instant moderation.

90% of the sets have been looking like crap for years anyway. At times way over the top, other times uninspired.

Can't tell plate from clothes anymore and alot of T17 pieces would rather fit into Wildstar. About damn time to get back to the roots with these sets and make i.e. a hunter look like he is sort of ranger instead of a year 2075 space mutant on steroids.

EQ2 will always have a place in my heart, despite i think that unfortunately it's graphics didn't age very well.

My favorite moment was when i entered the commonlands for the first time and it started to rain so hard that i moved my character into a tent and just watched the scenery.

One of the very games i've never uninstalled from my hdd.

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.

So Trion promising 10% for patrons and not delivering is XL's issue. Alright.

Good that yours isn't. Ha Ha.
