Discussion in 'Upcoming Games Discussion' started by Gaucho, 26 Jun 2014.

    Who all is planning to play starting this Friday? A buddy and I ended up snagging founders packs and will be playing. I'm hoping to pull him into CDL for Star Citizen, so it might be a good time to get him into the group and meet some folks.

    I will be there.

    The division leader and officer for this game is setting us up a charter to make an official division for Archeage.

    Look for a separate forums and chat area devoted for the game soon. Hoping its soon at least. Have some things I would like to chat about in a separate area to get everyone's feedback.

    Friday cant come soon enough.
  6. Well right now I know Shewolf and I will be hitting the ground running as soon as the servers come up. I will be in TS at 12 noon est ready to go. I already have my appearance saved so I will just have to select my opening skillset then I am off and running. One thing to know is this. We will be operating on the Western Continent of Nuia. So everyone will need to run either a Nuian or Elf as for now those are the only two in the western faction. Shewolf and I will be doing a land grab run right out the gate in order to try and reserve land in Two Crowns as best we can. She is going Elf and I am going Nuian and we will meet up in Lilyut Hills and finish the run from there.

    Right now I do believe we are leaning toward Naima for our server as it seems to be the lowest pop server. Aranzeb is going to basically be 90% of the Alpha players that will be there so it will be crowded from the start. But just keep your eyes open in the forums for a confirmation on starting server.
  7. Oak...pop in TS tonight and we can get together and talk about things. I think it would be good for us to get together and make sure we are all on the same page.

    Sounds good. I'll let him know and get him to drop an application. We're usually on my mumble being anti-social, so it'll be good to get over into TS and chat with folks a bit more.
  9. I will play but I am going to wait till the 16th
  10. Should be on for the start. Will work from home Friday and hopefully its not busy.
  11. meh...i will get in when i can, have fun guys
  12. Trion is doing a livestream tonight at 7:30pm EDT / 4:30pm PDT. Not sure of what the topics are, but there will be 3 Archeum Founder Packs given away.

  14. Open Beta Livestream Recap! (self.archeage)

    Alright, lots of stuff should be covered today. If anything isn't clear or downright wrong, let me know!

    • Open beta was awesome, couple of records were set. Most number of downloads & highest number of signups in all of the beta weekends.
    • Eliminating all meetings on Friday so they can actually play the game themselves.
    • Glass Phoenix glider is pretty.
    • Servers have been improved. During beginning of open beta, they noticed servers were stressing and they had XLGames members IN the office to help out and make changes to significantly reduce the lag.
    • 50% improvement on performance.
    • Lots of the stuff they're going to answer, Scapes has answered on the forums with the above link.
    • Marketplace changes; Test with the labor pots was very useful.
    • Trying to change it back to old version of labor pot. 12 hour cooldown, 300 credit.
    • All the constructive feedback is greatly appreciated, Scapes is very happy that everything was laid out, super helpful.
    • They don't want to buy best-in-slot items in the store, that's the reason costume stats were removed.
    • Costumes are just for fun.
    • OBT Build is basically our launch build, talking with XLGames to tweak some stuff.
    • Core of the build is ready for launch.
    • Costume helmets are APART of the costume so you can't remove it, it's just one item(the whole costume) so you can't hide it, sorry.
    • Archeum scarcity; thanks for the feedback and for all the people who recorded and opened a TON of bags to ACTUALLY help them.
    • Number on database doesn't always match what you see in game.
    • With your data and their data they are talking with XL on "what makes sense."
    • XLGames staff has been in the office for a while and keeping late hours to help out.
    • All archeum was adjusted (moonlight, etc) but it wasn't adjusted AS MUCH as sunlight. But all were adjusted.
    • Archeum crates weren't supposed to be just for archeum. It's meant for a bonus added onto their main reason for opening the crates.
    • Editing the Archeum Crates tooltip to be more accurate.
    • They are spawning a ton of coin purses and testing themselves for rates.
    • XLGames in KR and in their office are pretty active so they might be getting a different build for launch. They'll let us know when they know.
    • Mounts; "power creep" "stat creep", the only mounts worth obtaining is the best one.
    • In-game achievement for honor point mount and other top tier mounts will get looked at to maybe increase the speed.
    • They just want you to pick whatever mount you want for LOOKS and ABILITIES, not because you're forced to for speed.
    • Feedback will be taken from headstart, they are still looking to balance mounts.
    • Cows and Donkeys will still be slow
    • Firecait is going to try to get Carrot Dash, there goes her paycheck.
    • These changes make it easier to put Pegasus and other mounts on the store since everything is normalized.
    • Wiping everything and getting everything ready to go again waiting for launch.
    • Making sure everyone gets their patron/founders pack items, etc.
    • They're testing each INDIVIDUAL servers getting it ready for Friday.
    • OBT Servers are the headstart servers.
    • They don't plan on specifically adding servers AFTER headstart. If they DO, it'll be because the game was so good that they needed more servers for traffic reasons.
    • Don't need to redownload everything, just a patch.
    • 0 Labor points start (who asked this? That was obvious.)
    • Europe vs NA; timing will be coming up together. Other then that, different times. Patches, restarts, Auroria, all will be on a good time for their respective country.
    • Fishing boats was unintentionally removed, trying to get it back for headstart.
    • Healer quest rewards! XL hasn't dealt with this since they started at 1.0 and they've requested it, but they don't know when it'll be ready. Won't be ready for launch, but they're sure they'll get it fixed.
    • Founders pack on steam, still working on integration, buy the founders packs on their website.
    • Founders packs will be removed at launch & replaced with STARTER packs.
    • Character slots will be available for headstart, 1000 credits per slot.
    • You'll start off with 2 characters and you get have 6 for your account, 4 max per server.
    • Slots are PER REGION. 6 Slots for NA, 6 Slots for Eu.
    • Labor pool is split by region as well. Labor and loyalty are different on Eu and NA.
    • Auction house; 3 servers per auction house on NA, 2 on Eu. Going to talk about it on the forums.
    • Launch build is available now. (I only see beta, not sure, don't blame me.)
    • Patron pricing is identical for RIFT. Go look at RIFT.
    • Free to play players can buy the auction house cash shop item to fully use the auction house @ launch.
    • Someone asked what APEX is, it's basically an item you can buy from their website with MONEY, can't be bought with credits, and sell it to someone. When activated the user who used it gets credits. Can use it for anything, patron, AH Item, etc.
    • 10$ for APEX.
    • 2 APEX will be needed for the 30 day pass of patron.
    • Same CHESTS will be used from the loyalty store and the Archeum founders pack.
    • Two APEX will get you Patron and extra credits to spend as you please.
    • They have a meeting with XL. Main topics are labor potion and increasing drop rate for Archeum.
    • When they have details, they'll share them.
    • Botting and spamming. Chat filters have been improving a lot, you can finally say ING words, woo.
    • Their own engineers, GM Smackdown makes his own algorithms to detect bots.
    • GM Smackdown hates bots, Tease him by telling him there's a bot around you.
    • After reported a lot gets put on a list and they get checked by humans and banned if need be. Innocents will be let go.
    • Patron will start counting down WHEN YOU LOGIN. Launch, Headstart, whenever you login.
    • Hotbar topic; one of four that they've communicated to XL.
    • Borderless/Inverted Mouse/Skill queue are the other three topics.
    • Skill queue is a WHOLE new system, takes time.
    • Those aren't the ONLY topics they've brought up, just the highest priority.
    • Bi-weekly restarts on the servers to keep the servers healthy and make sure no lag is going to happen.
    • Can be reduced or increase the rate of restarts based on how the servers are going.
    • Healers healing their jerk friends in non-pvp zones against enemy faction and can't get attacked is noted and given to XL.
    • Reporting bots gets you labor if it's a bot.
    • Report abuse through Live chat or their support site, not in game.
    • If you're a patron and can't live chat, let them know!
    • Expansion pack schedule; let's launch the game first.
    • 1.7 is rapidly approaching.
    • No limits on housing, you need to just be able to pay it.
    • Character deletion scales; 1-10 is 10 minutes. 10-30 is 24 hours, they can't remember higher then that.
    • Founders packs perks and who they'll go to. First 6 characters for most of them, certain items like the Chests will only be your first character.
    • Scapes stinks, you don't want his shirt.
    • Hasla tier 1 limit. Tier 2 and 3 were supposed to be catch up weapons on KR. They're not needed now.
  15. This actually looks pretty damn interesting. Open world PvP? Sign me up. ill wat till it goes live on the 16th and give it a shot.
  16. So apparently if you gain enough criminal points you will be kicked from your faction and branded a pirate, how come i didnt hear of this game sooner?
  17. Well I obviously can't afford to buy any Founders' packs for games, though it sounded last night you guys were enjoying it and the world looks good on CryEngine.
