    Default Archeage going NA

    "ArcheAge to Launch with XLGames' Patch 1.2
    If you've been following ArcheAge, you may have heard about a game update simply called Patch 1.0.

    Initially released in Korea, this update has been the source of no small amount of concern from our ArcheAge community since we announced the game was coming to North America and Europe. Upon seeing the behavior of the patch's changes in the wild, the game's developer, XLGames, agreed that ArcheAge's balance and feel had shifted in an unintentional direction. Behind the scenes, we've been carefully following public feedback over the past few months, and had a chance to exhaustively test out the update on our own internal servers. While there are a number of gameplay improvements, we agree with their conclusion.

    Both Trion Worlds and XLGames are eager to maintain the game's sandbox nature. Our mutual, overriding goal has always been to release the best quality, most fun experience possible. Toward that end, members of our ArcheAge Team visited XLGames this past week to discuss Patch 1.0. Together, we've forged the best possible path to launch for Trion Worlds' version of ArcheAge.

    We're thrilled to announce that both Trion Worlds and XLGames have agreed that it's best for us go live with Patch 1.2's amazing improvements when we launch with English, French, and German languages in 2014. Launching with Patch 1.2 is a challenge as it adds over 70,000 words to translate. Since we want a complete English translation before introducing a larger audience to the game, this does mean that our Beta schedule has shifted by a few weeks. That means that we can't announce a specific date for the first Beta right now, but we wanted to get the great news about the game itself out as early as possible.

    Patch 1.2 also introduces a host of exciting improvements on its own, including increased experience per Labor Point spent, a searchable crafting folio that works with recipe or ingredient names, significantly reduced (from Patch 1.0) glider turbulence on the high sea, and the ability to earn experience from crafting with maxed-out professions and participating in PvP during a war. Additionally, the Marketplace (in-game store) will be available before Beta begins and we'll grant testers sufficient currency to test it out. It's important to note that our previously announced game improvements such as international trade routes granting Gilda Stars, storyline quests earning experience, and trade packs dividing turn-in rewards 80/20 between pack holder and pack owner will persist through this update.

    We're actively working with XLGames to bring our first build featuring Patch 1.2 changes to our Alpha server for gameplay testing and feedback. Since time is of the essence, we will not be holding this build back while waiting on complete translation, meaning that our Alpha testers will see partially translated content and will be asked to focus their feedback purely on how the gameplay feels. Rest assured, we do not anticipate the need to wipe the Alpha server for this update.

    With this new game plan announced, the team is very interested to hear your thoughts and to be able to answer your questions. Our weekly livestream will be all about our visit with XLGames and the news revealed in this announcement. Ask your questions in this forum thread and then join us tomorrow afternoon on Twitch where we'll field as many as possible.

    Our sincere thanks to each and every one of you for being a member of ArcheAge's pre-launch community. We're glad you're on this adventure with us!

    The ArcheAge Team"

    If they keep in touch with the community as well as they have so far, the launch should be one of the easiest in MMORPG history! Needless to say that i'm super excited, i'll finally be able to play with fellow English players rather than trying to decipher Russian on the RU servers

    I got into alpha. I reeeeeally planned on helping but realized I was going to burn myself out before release.
    Great game though I will ply it pretty hard when it's released.

    Yes and no. Yes in that you get some neat stuff + premium time at a deal-price, plus access to the beta. But no, it wont give you any real advantage over other players. UNLESS you count being able to play and learn the game during the beta before the actual release/open beta so that you know what you're doing when the "real game" comes along. So you could count the experience of being in the beta one of the prime benefits of the packs.

    Oh yeah, you can also get some neat looking outfits/capes from them too, I believe. If you're into that, it may be worth it. Personally, I only got the $50 pack (I think... can't remember, it's been a while). The primary reason for that is that I would end up spending the money anyways, I like supporting games I find fun, plus I want to have access to the beta so I can learn all the difference between this version and the Russian version prior to the official release so I don't have to spend the first week trying to learn/re-learn things.

    With the early access to open beta you also have first dibs on the best house plots. A bit too cuh-razy imo but w.e, not the end of the world.

    Well that sucks. I guess it depends on how "early" they start letting people in on the OBT.

    it's 3-4 days if I remember correctly? So the kind of people who normally try for those sort of advantages should have enough time to do so.
    Even if they say, made it you couldn't buy plots in that time, you'd still have more funds available before everyone else.


    Again not the end of the world, no crop(that Im aware of) is only grow-able on plotted land in certain zones, just those tops plots are in areas that are by water and such.
