Earlier this afternoon, ArcheAge Community Manager Scapes hopped on the forums to kick off a local question-and-answer session with ArcheAge fans and answered a number of queries, chief among them a question about how much control Trion will have over the prices in ArcheAge's western cash shop. "Lots, actually," Scapes told the forum-goers. "We decide what's in it and at what price, simple as that."

He also dashed the hopes of those pining for special server rulesets like PvP and RP, promised server farms for both NA and Europe, and suggested that cosmetics might be a part of the game's westernization.

The Q&A is still ongoing on the official forums. Those who participate have a chance at winning an alpha invite.

Rift cash shops have "must have items?"

As long as it is less pay to win like the other versions, people will be happy

I returned to RIFT for 1 week after the expansion (from my vanilla character) and already had items better items than what is in the cash shop.

 

Sorry, but you're absolutely wrong. Please do not spread rubbish like this.

I really hope Trion can "ctrl+z" many features from the 1.0... But I'm sure that's a hard thing to happen. Either way those statements are good, they are trying something (or just big lies everywhere) - We can just wait and see.

Pay to win is a term that shouldn't have any association with an MMO whatsoever. MMORPGs are not meant to be "winned" they are meant to be lived.

I don't like Trion... Trion destroyed the game at EU and NA. Once the game comes it will be P2W ( agree or not, like Korea version now ).

Back then most of you were saying " it will p2p " but some of us were said to you " it will be f2p then p2w ". I hope that everyone understands it now. And I am saying this too ( like or not , I said this issue at Turkish forum : archeagetr.com ) : " This game will come at the end of 2014 ( if we are really lucky ,ofc we are not ,thanks to Trion ) or at 2015 !!!.

I am really bored to learn the news by Trion from archeagesource ( I am happy to be in archeagesource ) but I am really angry to Trion. Trion provides useless informations to us and Archeage EU/NA website is useless ,  Archeage EU/NA facebook is useless,  Archeage EU/NA twitter is useless. 

When Archeage comes to EU or NA we need to wait minimum 6 months to get siege patch but we cannot do siege battles ( only build castles to northen area ). Then we will wait another 6 months to get real siege battle. Shortly at 2016 we will able to do real activities at Archeage EU/NA. 

To translate Korean to Chinese, Japanese, Russian is much more harder than ENGLISH !!! Thus, how we cannot get the game ???

XLGAMES abondant the development of Archeage too, I am playing at Korea too and I must say nothing new things are coming to game. Archeage Korea is a P2W model and more grinding now , no new pve or pvp content ( especially for pvp, ARCHEAGE's PVP is broken !!! ).

I plan to play and stay at Russia. I played the Korean version without any problem,even without an English patch. Only find 1-2 Russians/Koreans that knows English ( and join that person's guild ) - you will be fine really ( I am saying this from my experiences ) !!! Then you still do everything without any problem amd you will still get fun from game^^.

Well, if you are a carebear its ok. But some ppl play to be the best, have the best zones, best raids and best castles.

True that but those who like to Pay2Win will do it anyway... if not offered in cash shop's then they buy it on black market.

 

p.s. Personally I hope they sell as less as possible in cash shop's. ( eg preferably cosmetic stuff and maybe bank slots )
