ArcheAge CBT 1 has concluded 6 hours ago! It was such a great game! It was a very refreshing style of MMORPG. Much different than the popular ones such as WoW, WildStar, and etc... (At least from my experience)

I really think the game has great potential, but I heard the game is dying in South Korea and Russia.. I really hope they bring in good content to the game. Especially, making a fair Cash Shop. There isn't for much for me to complain though, except that the Labor Points can be really irritating because it tends to be spent more than gained. >,<

So to the people who have played the game since Alpha and Especially recently's beta, what do you think of the game? Do you really, really, really like it and think that the game is totally fine as it is? Do you hate it and think it's purely P2W? Or you like the game, but there should be more from it? BEGIN!

It's dying because they implemented things that made it "Wow" like. The game was perfect for its 1.0 patch but it's meh now for 1.2 regardless it's not as bad a KR 1.2

And nah it's not dying, it's still at top 10 in KR :P

I see.. For me personally It doesn't even really feel like WoW. Tell me how it's like WoW like? And it's a shame I didn't get to play in the Alpha.. >,< I was only able to find out about the game recently.. x)

Well "WoW" like is the basic quests; trying to level up through quest and ArcheAge has that at least till level 30 but you can break away and level through other means, but the fat that it has the linear questing shows that it has "themepark" style which is deviated through "Wow-like" thing.

And Labor System is working as intended, the game will die if Labor System is released.

There are far too many of those hardcore players who doesn't play the game but take it advantage and earn money through it such as ... gold-sellers. It stops gold sellers because it has limits to the crafting system plus ArcheAge is mostly a casual game in my opinion, something to come back once in awhile and do some crazy things so it caters the casual population and the developer wants the game to be of its proper self when players come back from vacations, etc rather than a broken game with a broken economy caused by players over-playing the game and gaining too many money, etc

I havent looked enough into Archage but how good is it compared to other MMOs and what stands out about it? When is the OBT? Or a EAOBT if they do have one.

From my experience and research the game has it's up and downs first of all. Just like any other MMORPG it tends to be grindy. But not grindy enough where it makes the game boring.

First of all I really love the visuals of the game. Pretty much animations, art, high end textures, and even the simplicity visuals in the game. I really also like the fact that you don't need to really be a combatant in the game. You could just create your own music and even be a full out support. Also I haven't tried this yet, but you can be an all out trade guild too. I also love the gliders! It's such an amazing feature! Oh you can also pretty much reach any location in the game! Be it on the top of the mountain, under the sea, or just even in a little corner on top of tall rock in the middle of the ocean! There's so much more to say!

For the negative side well I really don't like the Labor Points system.. It basically limits you on activities such as crafting, mining, etc... You lose so much points that gaining them passively.. There is also the cash shop (yes every f2p player hates cash shops).. They sell labor pots and some pet gear to enhance their speed, but I don't really mind about the pet gear and its mostly just cosmetics.. It's really just the labor system that makes the game frustrating.. Anyway you should just watch some gameplays and see for yourself.. I recommend watching TheXPGamers he has some good AA content. Personally, I very much like this game so I will keep playing it and probably even think of subscribing. ^_^

Speaking of subscribing, there is also the Patron Status (or premium) It pretty much gives you the ability to gain 10 LP than 5 LP passively and let's you build house and farm anywhere and let's you pay taxes.. I haven't gotten much into it so you might want to do some research if you're really interested.

Ahh This was pretty long, but that's all that I really wanted to say. Hope you find yourself getting into the CBT 2 ^_^ I'm sure they will be announcing beta key give away soon this or next week.
