Thank you for this. I have been interested in the game for about a little over a year, and I thank you for so much detailed information and taking the time out to do this. Knowing Trion, they will likely leave or add even more casual elements to the western release, but I will probably still try it out for a bit lol.

Great post and respect for the incredible effort spent in writing it! 

 

 

Once you and your gear get better, burst is not that big of deal (as you could see in the video).

 

 

Come at me bro!

 

 

That is actually a really good point. Personally, if players have at least one tree with healing/tanking abilities or the gear to make up for it(even if its just basic crafting gear), it gets much, much better. And in general, too, I think i've exaggerated a bit about the TTK to make a point.

I think i've focused a little bit too much on the whole Grim Reaper / Predator part. 

 

Thank you for pointing that out - I have it already on my to-do list to edit this part a bit. 

 

 

@Tsopolo:

More stories are coming!

 

@NomChompsky:

Let's hope you're wrong! :P

 

@Branwulf:

I thought the picture would be enough for that :D But I might just add a small paragraph about that.

 

@Everyone else: 

Thank you, I'm glad you guys liked it.

 

Also, I'm not a maniac.

Hey man one thing I don't get you said combat is turned based? I'm very confused. I thought it wasn't from videos of amae I've seen. Can you elaborate? Maybe I misread misunderstood.

Cause when you say turn based I think final fantasy 9. lol

Oh shit, that phrase is still in there huh. It's not turn-based, obviously, I just tried to find a word to say it's not action-based like TERA. You simplly press a skill and wait for it to happen. I thought of turn-based since it's basically what you do, you have really quick turns but it doesn't make much sense. Changed it to tab-targetting for now.

 

 

@Cyclops:

Thanks! It's obviously a personal review, hence the opinions, but I really tried.

@Cyclops:

The term you're looking for is either action combat or hack n slash. but in tera it's close enough that you can literally call it a hack n slash.

Since all abilities have to be aimed. even heals.

But I think the opposite you were looking for is hack n slash. ^^

I Think MMOs should have a combination of the two, but until virtual reality we can't have the perfect combat system eh? ×stares off into space dreaming×

No that is just the IG pointer you....

 

Wait..... oh no..... the same problem again, why so many games do this. The hands. All is fine except the hands the hands are enormous. The devs probably do this to "show" that they have animated the fingers in details as well. But no, sorry, do not want giant manly hands!

 

In Tera it was even worse the hands were bigger then the heads with some races.

In their defense, modelling hands is a giant pain in the ass.

And that is the point, they can model it right, they just then make the scale too big to show  "hey we actually did it", and that is the wrong move.

Thank you for this, it is really a good read.  I am very interested in AA, however I heard it is not doing as well as expected in Korea and that is getting me a bit worried.  So what do you think are the biggest problems in AA that is causing its underperformance in Korea market?  Thanks!

You're welcome!

 

XLGames as a publisher and the main features(Faction warfare) not in the game yet, as well as Hackshield as anti-botting security. It's really simple, XLGames fucked up with the botting issue, hacking issue(customer service) and then didn't bring out promised updates. Koreans are fed up with their business politics, not with the game [in general].

 

Trion has the chance to make ArcheAge much more sucessful, if they don't make the same mistakes XLGames did.

maybe it looks more scaled when you're wearing big fancy plate armor and carrying a big sword *shrugs*

Actually it looked kinda all right to me when I was wearing my gloves, did not notice any disproportions. Maybe just the "naked" hand model is bigger then it should be...

Every RPG is turn based, have you never played RP on "paper"?
