Just speculating but it makes sense to me. Trion wants their customers playing Defiance at the moment. The game is still new.  Perhaps they feel AA is a solid title and want to take the correct amount of tme to make sure it's right. I would see no benefit to them putting a 2nd MMO on the market so close after the release of Defiance.

I see your point, but AA is a whole different type of MMO than Def

i dont think those two games are aiming at the same audience at all.

 

Defiance // PS2  and Archeage // Eve // Darkfall seem lore like the competitions we will be following.

Obviously the translation is being worked on and also some charactrer custoimization as well.I hope that doesn't mean tatoos,colors and sliders for size,i would like to see in depth customization of RACE and Class.

I also hope there is a REAL BEtA,not these fake weekend events and immediate release i have been seeing from games of late.

I definitely do not like the way a player can go from swimming to gliding out of the water,very unrealistic.So i hope Trion is actually taking feedback because we need to see if any other out of place ideas like gliding out of water are in there.I am VERY skeptical,i doubt anything will change at all ,once the BEta phase starts.

 

Personally I'm hoping for mainly good translations and that's it , I don't want them "westernizing" it that much nor changing the ArcheAge game I've been following in the Korean version for a long time now.

 

I like the game as in in Korea and hope Trion isn't allowed to dumb it down/easy mode. 

I seriously doubt that they will be changing any game mechanics of any importance  , which is a good thing to me.

Exactly. Western MMOs haven't exactly been doing much in the way of better design so I think "westernizing" game systems is the last thing we should want, personally speaking. The way the game is shaping up now is how it should continue. It has a few issues but they are very easily fixable.

 

The LAST thing I want to see is the reduction or lessening of the sandbox elements currently at the core of the game. And its a good thing Trion is publishing for NA because most of us are quite aware of their quality.

 

So whats your idea of these "design" innovations coming out of the east?  Fancy cloths?  Big Swords?  Bigger boobs?  Cutier children? Bigger spell effects?  Nothing but trash and flash is what I see.  Ill take any western MMO over any eastern MMO any day of hte week.  And dont mention Tera's targeting system, DDO had it light years before them.  Nothing happening yet that interests me.

Its pretty sad that thats all you see, and ironically not surprising. Not to mention Archeage isnt even all that flashy or booby(ish?) or cutesy, etc. It doesnt even have that same ridiculous TERA-esque artstyle. No, I was talking about the prospects of player housing, player factions(think EVE), player cities, piracy and all the player content that is generated from that like politics, alliances, wars between factions over territory, resources even considering the northern continent is supposed to be host to many valuable resourses ONLY found there.

 

I mean, its not eactly "innovation" as its been done before to some extent in other games, but its not done enough...and the combination of themepark and sandbox IMO, is brilliant.

I don't see the point of combining sandbox and themepark.

 

Make a really good sandbox, or a really good themepark.'

 

Don't make a half assed version of both.

Realy what about Archeage and its building houses, farms, sandbox pvp, gliding, building ships and becoming a pirate, classless system...

I think it can work as both.. It just all depends on how well they make it. 

(thats my 2 cents)

What the heck ,seems like most posters miss the point entirely and turned this thread into a Western versus Eastern styled game or like i inspired changes to make it that way.

For those that are praising Trion ,it was TRION that wanted the changes not me not Archeage.

I personally don't care what a game does so long it does it well,i don't lable it eastern or western .

My two fave rpg's are FFXI and EQ2 both from opposite ends of the world,i don't play favortism.

What does concern me is Trion went ahead without taking any feedback and is already changing the game.That is what Beta is for ,Trion is treating this like they are getting ready for release.They diodn't even need a Beta,they coud lhave simply asked the forums for theri feedback on character changes,they chose not to include the gamers,see the problem now?

It's not really about audience anymore,gamers will try anything that is fun,it doesn;t have to fall into one area.I would bet the majority of gamers have tried games outside of rpg's.

This is also why you hear so many develoeprs tel lyou they are not makingthe game for one particular type of gamer,they are trying to get any customer they can.

Given the disappointment that is Defiance, I can't tell you how sad I am to see that Trion is the publisher for this game in the West. They bit off way more than they could chew when they were awarded the MMO tie in for the Defiance TV show, I just don't know how they are going to manage localizing and running a game as vast as Archeage.

Heh thanks for that, I was only trying to inform those who might have been like me and missed Trions little sign up page not start a war =p

And while I am here seems the Chinese beta hosted by Tencent starts on the 22nd of May. Game is going to be f2p/p2p mix in china and I think I saw an article on its f2p not being to painful. I think it said you can also purchase smaller blocks of time than 30 days which I hope is true and translates to the west somehow.

Here is the Chinese beta trailer.
