I’m very 50/50 on ArcheAge right now. Obviously my 30 minute review of it wasn’t glowing, but at the same time I’ve had multiple people tell me that once I get through the leveling garbage, the game is exactly what I would want in an MMO. That’s at least a little tempting. Plus it’s ‘free’ (post for another day) and other than playing FFXIV as a duo, I’m not exactly brimming with MMO options these days.
Easy prediction time though; the head start + housing situation is going to cause a lot of rage, as the prime spots will be picked up long before the first freeloader even gets a chance to create a character. I’m actually dying for this to happen, because there are few things funnier than hearing someone who hasn’t dropped a dime complaining about a service others pay for. The rage tears will be delicious.
I am an Arccheum founder so I’m getting 90 days auto. I am marathoning till I get my house. Me and my friend are going to crank away till it’s done and I know right where I want it . I’m so fucking excited for head start. Large farm with a villa here I come! You can stay over and we can have slumber
“Freeloaders” don’t get to have houses at all as far as I know so that shouldn’t be a problem. Although of course it will anyway…
Massively had an article that they might be adding some more races to the game. When that happens I might give it a go. I don’t like anything currently playable in the game (same reason I didn’t play GW2).
Not even human? Or those giant lion/bear looking things? If you don’t like race designs in GW2 it must be the art style that doesn’t appeal to you.
I hate the art style. They could definitely design a race that appeals to me within it, though. Cat people don’t do it for me.
Freeloaders can’t own property anyway. You have to sub for that
Also an Archeum founder but I’m so unpulsed by launch day/week mmo’s that I’m thinking of giving AA a 3 month head start without me.
I was very interested but now I just cannot support this kind of business model, i.e. weak P2W. It just feels like a massive cash grab with poor combat/PVP. Everything is tailored to making money, even after paying a subscription.
The initial founders packs were telling enough; e.g. selling alpha packs on an already released game!!
I understand that you’re inactive from EVE, then. May I ask why?
Still playing EVE Offline, but haven’t actively flown anything in a few months. Kinda lacking in direction, other than possibly jumping on for alliance Ops.
