    Default 5 Things You Should Know About ArcheAge

    YouTube Video
    ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.



    If you've been paying attention to the F2P landscape in the past number of months, you may have seen that ArcheAge has quite a large following. I recently jumped into the Korean version of the game and took it for a test ride. Thereís a lot that Iíve taken away from the experience, but these are the 5 Things You Should Know About ArcheAge that were the most prominent parts of my experiences.

    Please share what youíre most excited about for this game.

    No word as of yet. They sure are taking their sweet time. The hype is dying down already, my fear is that once Archeage is released in the west it'll have too many competitors.

    The hype isn't dying down its just those who hype it have gone underground awaiting its english release. The game itself is I think a mind changer it has ideas set into it that will make even a dead man wake up to it. Its a game that you do not have to be mr./miss kill bill. Your able to do something you wanted to do in a mmo game and those other mmo games are now thinking yeah maybe we should do that too. Just like the Star Citizen has woke up the Space race, ArcheAge has woken up fantasy mmo's.

    If this game is going to be F2P then it might be worth the shot. But if its going to be P2P. I rather play Wildstar.

    Nah since there are not a whole lot of sandbox MMOs for now, it won't have much competition. I don't really understand why Trion is taking so long since this game definitely has potential here.

    1 thing you should know about ArcheAge.

    You will be old and wrinkled before it gets a release in US.
    You will die of old age before it gets released in EU.

    As all asian mmo's..

    Some things should be kept to yourself, honestly. You have no idea about the guys background. Maybe he has an extremely thick accent and is doing his best to make it as clear as possible. Maybe he has some sort of speech impediment that he's working on fixing? No reason to be mean about it. If you don't like his voice then just have that opinion without sharing it, or if you must at least do it in a way that wont make someone feel bad about themselves.

    That whole, "If you've got nothing nice to say, than don't say anything at all." thing and all that.

    My favorite ArcheAge streamer is Reijek. I've also played the game in the past and it was fun. I decided not to get to deep into it and just wait for the English version, though. The class system was very pleasing to me. Questing was generic/boring. There is some stuff thrown in every now and then that makes things a bit more fun, such as a quest where you have to capture a mermaid/man and then carry it on your back to some old man that lives along on the beach. You can't help but wonder what he really wants it for. It's the later content that sets the game truly apart, though.

    What I liked about the class system was that you mix-and-match three of the seven different schools/skill trees and that created your own unique class. Can find a list of most of the classes that can be made here. Changing up your character isn't to much of a headache either. Though you do have to grind each of the seven trees. So if you grind up 3 of them from the start, and then decide to switch one out for a different tree that you haven't played yet, that tree will be at 'level 1' and you'll have to grind it up.

    It's a system that makes for a lot of fun and experimentation. People tend to flock towards "cookie cutter" builds that they get off of websites, so there's room for you to come up with something relatively unique that will surprise people.

    And the boat stuff is pretty damn cool as well.

    eh i can say what i want, you dont have to get all kinds of mad because i was the first person to speak up about his voice lol(im sure plenty of others were thinking the same thing) and im not making fun of him in any way, i just cant stand people with crazy voices that sound unreal like his is, at first tbh i thought it was some other guy trolling with his voice, but no its his own. i could of been even more mean and said it on the youtube vid, but i decided not to, either way, i can say what i like ^.^ enjoy your frustration. also our conversation is over, i will not talk to you ever again




    ANY WAYS, ied like to try the game out, it actualy looks really badass. its on a list of other games i cant wait for

    Not if a mod decides to silence you. I see nothing wrong with Xaenex's voice so it's just you who has a problem with it I suppose. He doesn't have the best mic in the world from what I saw in his stream but his voice is normal.

    Even suggesting that someone should be silenced for not having the same opinion of someones voice than your own.... sounds like you've got some problems and won't have an easy time in the real world if that's how you think it works.

    What? That's not what I said. The whole point is that you can voice your opinion without being rude. Gods-Hand showed no respect to Xaenex at all. I dunno what was hard to understand in my post so I suggest you read my post properly before replying next time.

    What the hell with some people here lol :O

    edit: and yes, if your post is inappropriate, you can be silenced so no you can't say whatever you want

    Thank you guys for your support, it wouldn't be the first time someone has tried to insult my voice, and I'm sure it won't be the last.

    Ever since entering the YouTube-sphere I've made it my goal not to water down the message I'm trying to voice nor the awareness I want to bring by being some over-the-top and unrealistic personality. Any excitement, boredom, or just general emotion you hear me voice in my videos are genuine about that game.

    Overall, I usually ignore, or if I can, delete, criticism towards aspects of the content that I cover that just can't be change. I'm mixed, born in Jamaica, living in Miami. I don't even have my Jamaican accent anymore, and the way I speak is just a hodgepodge of many dialects and speech tendencies. My content isn't perfect, and being in the fourth month of me covering content, on YouTube, on a consistent basis, I have a lot of room for growth. I appreciate (though not always enjoy, lol) criticism, as long as it's constructive or will make my channel better.

    A lot of changes have come to my channel, the actual content that I cover, how I cover it, and even the way I plan, organize, record, and edit my content. Overall, there's been amazing criticism, and I love the improvements I've made because of it. As for Gods-Hand's opinion, it's pretty clear it wasn't constructive, pretty demeaning, and negative. He's not the sort of viewer that I'm concerned with nor make my content for. I create my content for beautiful people, people that actually have great moral character to them. People that are able to voice an opinion, even if it's a negative one, but in a respectful manner. That's the community I want to create a home for, via my channel, and hopefully influence other communities to be like.

    At the end of the day, people will say what they say. I guess it's great that I've been using the internet so long that it's not hard for me to ignore rude and nonconstructive comments

    Good god, what a rude post! Honestly, a mod aught to silence you if you're going to act like this towards other members of the forums. You're on the freaking internet, grow a skin.

    Try not to be so incredibly obvious in your hypocrisy and incompetence. Damn near every post you've made can be "silenced" by your own standards.

    Edit - by the by, folks on this board rip each other up way worse than just saying they don't like someone's voice. If you literally can't handle that without crying this is NOT the place for your.

    Where do I start?

    1. I didn't say that YOUR post was inappropriate. I was just speaking about posts in general.
    2. I'm not offended by what Gods-Hand said, it wasn't even aimed at me. And
    3. Because I'm calling out on someone's post doesn't mean that I don't have a thick skin. On the internet, respect still exists.

    So yes, you clearly lack reading comprehension since everything you said here doesn't concern me at all. Your post history indicates that you're just good at picking fights with people. I don't know why I'm still wasting my time with you. It is very funny (and ironic) that you're the one who's making a big fuss here simply because I told someone that he can't say whatever he wants.

    @Xaenex the only irks about pvp in archeage (judging from the russian steams on Twitch) is that in small skirmishes/zergs, it's go archer or go home. I didn't see any castle siege yet so my knowledge about archeage's pvp is incomplete.

    ill admit saying burning my face was abit much, but i honestly cant stand peoples voices that sound just crazy like i said, again, i didnt put it on your youtube vid, so i expressed it here, like i said CC is enough so i can read what your saying. still cant wait to play. also dont make it seem like im pinpointing you out, its just peoples voices in general keep going with vids, ill just have to CC them ill voice my opinion how ever i like it, could of been worse if i just blurted something terrible on your youtube vid ^.^ ill continue to express my voice how i like

    either way ill keep watching nice archage vids, so feed me more. thanks.

    Good god, you immediately turn around and act like an idiot after trying to make a point with a 1-3 list. No, you're actually wrong, especially in regards to videos. Yes people on the internet EARN respect, but it isn't given as easily as it is in the real world, something that goes straight over your head, obviously.

    As for "You're just good at picking fights with people" no, i'm good at calling out the complete idiots that post here on their ridiculous posts, like basically every post you've made here. We're on Onrpg, not North Korea, this is no place for people like you with toilet-paper-thin skin.

    Edit - As for "Why am i even responding?", because you know you're wrong, but you feel you need to defend your "point" as you're already knee deep in your own stupidity.
