If ArcheAge can release before competition, with a good translation and western friendly cash shop model I can see it getting a very solid playerbase. I almost applaud them for taking so long to develop the game and not rush it out but the NA market is at the beginning of a sandbox resurgence. Not many seem to be of the quality of Archeage but it also has to convince western audiences that it isn't an asian grind house mmo.

 

This game has some pretty amazing systems but is built on a traditional mmo backbone. I'd hate to see it ruined by pay to win features and endless grind.

Perhaps, but archeage does offer a lot of content and features.

Plus i dont mind some grinding. I cant stand getting to max level in these western mmo's in 3 days and then hear everyone cry about how bad the game is. Sometimes grinding helps you get use to your character and skills, and helps you get out and explore.

 

Grinding in a themepark is bad, i agree. but in a sandbox....... I almost want it.

We have only seen one race. We don't knwo about the others - we don't know if it will be be cookie-cutter starting areas or not. Let us wait and see.

 

We don't want the hype engine to get too high only to hang the game because it doesn't live up the the unrealistic hype from fans. We have been in that place before.

They do not have to convince the western audience of anything. The game world does not revolve around the western player's every fickle whim. The asian market is far greater than that of the western market. AA will do just fine without the western wowbies.

BTW I am a western but I much prefer asian games vs this western garbage weve been spoon fed since 2004.

Ill + 1 this. the western market thinks that games begin and end with them. Seems to be the attitude the west has.

The latest is this f2p vs p2p topic. seems that the western crowd of MMOers not only want everything in game quick fast and in a hurry but now they want if for free to boot. The entitlement crowd. There a very loud bunch lol.

Loud perhaps, but as they don't have any financial 'clout' there no reason for MMO developers etc to give them the time of day, let alone listen to their rants, as they have nothing to offer games developers anyway, except mostly, abuse. So why shouldnt games developers tailor make their games to the needs of the players etc, who are willing to pay for it. Should be obvious really.

I dont believe the game will be out by the end of 2013 in the west.

I disagree with the claim that if it does not land in 2013, it will not be able to attract and hold decent playerbase. I do not see any special sandboxy games being released during the following year.

We have seen 4 races already. And more as npcs. And at least I have seen 3 unquie starting zones. I dont know what you define as a "cookie cutter starting area" but each of them looked very disctinctive. Of course the progression was linear at the start.
