ArcheAge : Trion Swings The Hammer - Entire Guild Banned

Posted Feb 14, 2016 by Catherine Daro

Trion Worlds has made a post on the official ArcheAge forums regarding a server first kill of Leviathan boss by the guild called "Rage Quit". According to reports of other players and the summary by forum moderators, the guild utilized an exploit to complete the kill. As a result of taking advantage of the exploit, all members participating in the event got permanently banned, the guild has been disbanded and all loot gained has been removed from the world. 

In reviewing all of the contacts we received regarding this kill, no member of Rage Quit stepped forward to inform of us the exploit outside of one, who we will discuss in a moment. Had a member of the guild or Scottyz, their guild leader who was present for the kill, stepped forward to contact us and let us know about this issue, our decision would be very different. Instead, the guild claimed the loot, made use of the loot (outfitting the galleon, for example), and made no effort to contact the staff. Scottyz, for example, is still personally holding onto a piece of the treasure.

Read the entire discussion based on Trion's response on the ArcheAge forums.

You can take a look at the kill by checking the video below.

General : Epocylipse: The Afterfall - New Open World RPG Announced

Posted Feb 12, 2016 by Suzie Ford

Razor Edge Games has announced what it believes is a break away RPG in Epocylipse the Afterfall. The game is considered a non-linear, open world, procedurally generated game that challenges the typical RPG stereotype of "kill everything you see". Epocylipse features 100+ hours of game play, a customizable rule set, character aging and much more.

Play Style is a non-linear open world RPG with heavy emphasize on character development, using a skill based system. The game features dozens of optional rules that allow players to up the intensity and make the game more realistic and dangerous. Play is turn based, on can be played solo or with numerous people in the same campaign.

Gameplay consists of a mixture of strategy, wit, common sense and a willingness to push your character into the unknown. There are no perfect character builds or ways to play. Play however you want: questing, adventuring, building reputation, exploring, influencing the faction wars…The different play styles and ways to build your character are too numerous to count.

Find out more by visiting the Epocylipse the Afterfall site.
