Hello guys,

 

after the news that ArcheAge is officially going Free To Play in July, here are the quick facts abut how the system works. Thanks for Fido for the awesome writeup - beat me to it, stupid work block!

 

The Free To Play Model in short

 

1) Free to play users...

 - can freely choose servers

 - can level up to 50

 - start with 50 labour points (remember that labour points are account-wide)

 

 - can NOT own houses or scarecrows

 - do NOT regenerate labour points

 - can NOT pay taxes (if you have houses you will lose them if your account goes F2P)

 

2) PC Bang Users without ArcheLife

 - Regenerate 15 labour points every 5 minutes while ONLINE

 - Regenerate 5 labour points every 5 minutes while offline

 - CAN own houses or scarecrows

 - CAN pay taxes

 - Get bonus honor

 - Get 3 lulu coins per hour playing

 

3) PC Bang Users with ArcheLife

 - Regenerate 15 labour points every 5 minutes while ONLINE

 - Regenerate 5 labour points every 5 minutes while offline

 - CAN own houses or scarecrows

 - CAN pay taxes

 - Get bonus honor

 - Get 10 Lulu Coins at first login daily

 - Get 6 lulu coins per hour playing

 

4) Home Users with ArcheLife 30

 - Regenerate 5 Labour Points every 5 minutes while online and offline

 - CAN own houses or scarecrows

 - Can pay taxes

 - Get bonus honor

 - Get 10 lulu coins at first login daily

 - Get 198 lulu coins at the end of the 30 days

 

5) Home Users with ArcheLife 90

 - 5 Labour Points every 5 minutes while online and offline

 - CAN own houses or scarecrows

 - Can pay taxes

 - Get bonus honor

 - Get 10 lulu coins at first login daily

 - Get 159 lulu coins after each 30 days as a bonus

 

As Fido already explained, PC Bangs in Korea are a huge thing within the gaming industry. Players have to pay around 1$~ to play and some of that many, probably about 20 cents for XLGames, goes directly to Publishers/Developers. That means publishers try to bring as many people as possible into the PC Bangs

 

Here's how you get lulu coins:

 

ArcheLife 30: 198 after 30 days

ArcheLife 90: 159 after 30 days, 477 total.

ArcheLife Abo 3/6/9: 198 after each 30 days

 

1 LP-Cake: 15 through coupon

6 LP-Cake: 85 through coupon

14 LP-Cake: 180 through coupon

35 LP-Cake: 450 through coupon

50 LP-Cake: 640 through coupon

5 Endless Fantasy(potion): 45 throuh coupon

 

Lulu coins are account-wide, too.

You can use lulu coins to craft specific things on Mirage Island.

You can either use lulu, life score, honor or delphinade stars to build many things that are yet to be announced. For the submarine we know that there will be 4 colors depending on what you spend on it.

 

Fido talked to the koreans in WNTC about that, if something changes he will update this.

 

He did not comment on this personally, and I won't either. It's just nothing comparable to our F"P Systems.

 

Now, for everyone still having gametime loaded on his account:

If you want to continue playing with ArcheLife, go to this site and your account will be changed to an ArcheLife acccount and you'll also get wings tht look like Aion wings(you cannot fly with them...)

So, this is it. This is ArcheAge Free To Play in Korea.

Sound like the PC Bang is the most profitable business for investing in gaming :D

So basically if that was the same here. 50 labour points... and labour points are to build and harvest and things.. then the only thing f2p would be for is fighting

escape from the grouchiness of my wife and to separate my gamer life

Actually extremely hard to kill them since they are botting in safe zones.

I'm really hoping the NA release will be different in their choice for payment methods.  I'm personally hoping for a b2p+item shop, or b2p subscription as this would help prevent some griefing/botting, etc.

I bet here in the US the PC Bang will take over what archelife is in the form of subscritions and F2P will be slighty more fair but thats just my thoughts

I would much prefer there to be a sub and everyone on an even playing field. Sadly complete F2P encourages bots so maybe B2P and an optional sub would be best.

If you pay a sub you get wings...?  Sigh, I hope they don't have wings in the NA release.

Thanks for this post, i got it also linked in my Twitch account so when streaming, it can clarify alot of questions that people usually have in my chat.

 

Second, for me personally, the "F2P" reminds me more of a "Warhammer Online Endless Trial" than anything else to be honest.

The other day, i helped out a member of this forum that recently got into ArcheAge (KR), since he was on a trial (f2p whatever you wanna call it, for the sake of argument "trial account") :) 

Anyhow, after he reached level 10 or so, he couldnt get a mount. Reason for that was, you need labour points in order to breed / get your mount to grow up to be big and strong. And since you start with a VERY limited ammount, and most first quests require you to pick stuff up, gather this and that, help a fellow npc in building a house and what not, all these require labor points.

 

So as we found out about all that, he ended up getting a 30day game card to his account, and we tested that theory. And yup surely after he had enough labour points to get his mount all big and strong grown up for further ventures ;)

 

So yeah if you ask me, then the new "F2P" as most people call it, is more of a endless trial. Because it looks almost as many other mmo's trial status.

 

So yeah you can get to max level, fight mobs, do (some) quests and thats it.

Since every quest that requires you to do anything non combat related, costs labour points, which you do not have as a "Trial"/"F2P" member.

 

Just thought i would point this out after fiddeling aruond with it with another player for hours.
