The 1.0 patch makes it even more streamlined, and there is still a possibility that even more will be removed or replaced.

    In my opinion, ArcheAge is now a confusing Theme Park MMO with some sandbox features that are still poorly executed and confusing. The game is less focused on crafting and gathering, and more focused on traditional aspects of an MMO.
    you do know the only changes were; no delphic from trading, new daily quests, more safezones.
    that's pretty much all 1.0 did, lol.
    best gear is still crafted etc., raid gear is only as good as tier 2? i think.

    the thing that makes a game a sandbox isn't solely its features.
    e.g in archeage if you want to be a mercenary/pirate/farmer etc. you can.
    the game doesn't say 'no, you HAVE to do this or this' (pretty much every mmo lol). instead it lets you do what you enjoy doing.
    1.0 may have hurt that in some regards, but not as much as people like to think.

    I'd actually prefer if they made the best gear obtainable from mobs and bosses. I want to be a warrior, not a farmer.

    What's the difference? Run a dungeon a hundred or so times for an epic piece of gear or save up your money to buy it from a player. Both different means, about equal in terms of difficulty and work required to obtain, but one adds to the game and the other is just a one-person time sink.

    That'll just leave a repetitive gameplay, similar experience from FFXIV. It's best to leave options to allow players to mix and match gears that can be obtainable with different methods while keeping the difficulty high.

    I'm inclined to believe that crafting 2x better than hunting piece of gear because of the Monster hunter series, But if you have to level your crafting to do so. It's not worth it.

    Crafting in archeage requires job points which regenerate VERY slowly unless you pay for a premium account and the day I pay for a free to play game is the day aliens invade the earth. Crafting also requires A LOT of money and the best way to get money is other crafting. Buying crafted gear on the AH requires even MORE money - on the server I'm playing on people charge more gold for a single epic piece of crafted gear than I've ever owned on my character.

    Trion addressed its level of control over the title in its relationship with developer XLGAMES and indicated that the Korean 1.0 patch changes will not be coming to the West

    why are you arguing over something that may not come?

    I'm currently "playing" russian AA. like 10-20% of players are 24/7 bots. It could have become a good game if it was p2p and bot-free.
