Sorry this took so long to post, but I wanted to thank all the ArcheAge fans I met at Gamescom 2012 in Germany last weekend. It was an amazing, unforgettable experience, and I'm not just saying that to be nice. I mean it.
Only once before in 2008 have I hung out with such an enthusiastic group of people. Fido and Darkspay, you guys were champs for dealing with my weird American bullshit for five days (it felt like longer). ArcheAge-Online.de moderators and other staff, like Viciskander and Swatcorp (and his bro), were generally swell guys too.
It was truly refreshing to go to Gamescom 2012, and after PAX Prime 2012 I think my gamer batteries will have fully recharged. I'll be able to survive the rest of the year at my mundane day job knowing that there's something better waiting for me at home: the ArcheAge international community.
Let's see what the rest of the year brings us. The inevitable announcement of ArcheAge's RU, NA, and EU publishers is just the beginning of our journey together. See you next year in Cologne!
