Archeage: Unchained  – New Q&A Information – October 11th 2019

Archeage: Unchained – New Q&A Information – October 11th 2019


Every week the archeage team has a live question
and answer panel on twitch, friday evening on the GMT timezone. This video is a condensed version, the hour
long stream down to less than 10 minutes and then any info or opinions from myself on at
the end. As always, self promotion upfront. If you’d like to purchase archeage unchained
and haven’t yet done so, I do have a link in this here video description where you can
do just that and all the while support me as a content creator. Using this link will cost you absolutely nothing
and make me very happy, so if that sounds like something you would like to do, thanks
in advance! Also if you head to the link for my website
in the video description, I’m giving away 3 copies of archeage unchained. Please stick around to the end of the video
for more details about this as I don’t want to make the intro too and there have been
a few changes to the giveaway due to new information from this live stream. First up, no delay. I know people have been getting antsy about
delays, they confirmed on the stream thata right now they are confident that everything
will be ready, everything has gone as planned. The updated time table now is as follows. Character creation is live for founders pack
owners on schedule, 12th of October at 10 am UTC for eu and 10 am pacific for NA. If you want to do this, go to the glyph launcher,
on the left hand side you’ll see archeage unchained. Install the game, load it up at 10 am for
your region and make your character. To go with this, the Archeage Unchained live
service, full launch, will commence at the same times on the 15th of October, so 10 am
UTC for EU and 10 am Pacific for North America. Land lock will use these times also, so for
anyone unaware, you can’t claim land in archeage unchained for the first 4 days after launch,
the first saturday at 10 am for each region it will unlock, so that’s the 19th of October. Fluffy is now working on the PTS, has some
new commands also for hiram gear and infusions. For anyone listening for the first time, fluffy
is a bot you can use to spawn items for yourself to test out the game, level yourself up, stuff
like that. You can find a list of commands for fluffy
on the forums. They’ve had to add a third pts server due
to high server load. The archeage founder’s packs will be going
away in the evening of the 14th, so that is your last chance to get those special items
for pre-ordering. This is why I need to talk about my giveaway
later, so if you are interested in that then stick around for that info. They have a final PTS build coming up within
the next 24 hours, they’ve fixed most of the bugs that were found over the last 10 days. The PTS will be coming down earlier than intended,
will come down on Sunday, this is so they can use the data to improve the live service
and make sure everything is going to run as intended as they have collected a lot of data
from the PTS. People who purchased the chainbreaker packs
on the website have asked how they can claim their items from these packs once the game
goes live. The answer is, go to the glyph website after
launch and they will be there, it will look like a zero credit purchase, so it will ask
you to buy them when you click on them but the cost will be 0, you then use that system
to redeem them to the character aand server of your choice. Expansion scrolls were talked about last week’s
stream, saying they cost too many diligence store coins, they didn’t comment on the new
updated cost, just said to look at the patch notes and the store and react to it once we
get our hands on it. This, should be available in the next 24 hours. Crime points has came up each week, basically
the developers say they have a version coming soon for their server that alleviates most
concerns. They scheduled us to get the update in december,
but they’re trying to push it in november, looking into reducing jail time that is associated
with your infamy and xl is committed to addressing this situation. There is currently no gifting system on the
glyph store, so you can’t gift the chainbreaker packs at all. You should be able to
use steam to gift the game to your friends if you want to gift it to anyone. Are arenas going to be cross server? Yes they will, but not cross version or cross
region. So archeage unchained north american servers
will all fight each other in the arena and same situation for EU and eu servers. Gifting is currently enaabled in the in-game
cash shop. This means you can gift other players in-game
with items purchased in the cash shop for real money. They heard this could be a p2w concern, khrolan
asked the chat to put a 1 in chat if they thought it was pay to win and a 2 if they
thought it was fine. It was a pretty 50/50 poll just from my eyes
watching it, khrolan said okay and wrote something down in front of him and they didn’t touch
upon it again. I’ll talk a bit about this soon. They brought up if you could complete all
3 archepasses within the time they run for, they said yes but it would be very difficult. The time to complete them has been reduced
to 22 days each, it will be a lot of playing though to get them all done. Halloween event isn’t 100% confirmed but they
did bring it up and say that they don’t want to ruin the surprise. Request completion tickets are not in archeage
unchained at all, in any way. They’ve been removed. They are in the loyalty store in the f2p legacy
version until they figure out what to do with them. The new build on PTS that arrives in the next
24 hours will address a lot of bugs and issues that people found, the patch notes will credit
the community with things that were changed based on feedback given. On this new PTS build they have also moved
some items that were unbound and in the diligence store, to being bound and on the cash shop. These are of course cosmetic items. We’ll have to wait and see for the patch what
items got moved. Trade system and fishing system have no changes
to current live 5.5 version, though they are still discussing them internally and with
XLgames. Mounts will be added in-game later, probably
for diligence store coins. That’s about it for the actual information. There’s a lot to digest there to be honest
and I’ll try to be brief with each point while talking about my take on things. First I just want to go over the giveaway
information and changes to that for anyone who was interested. Basically I was running a giveaway on my new
site for 3 copies of archeage founders packs, I had the giveaway to end on the 14th at 3
pm GMT. Because there’s no gifting available for the
founders packs, I originally wanted to just get the winners paypal accounts and send them
the dollar value so they can purchase the pack themselves, or to gift them the pack
on steam. Well the pack on steam will probably not have
some of the items that the founders packs do. So I’m going to end the giveaway one day earlier
on the 13th and you’ll have the same choice, either for the dollar value on paypal, or
to wait until the 15th if you don’t have paypal and I’ll gift you the game. Not a lot I can do about this, I was hoping
they would enable purchasing of the game as a gift or as a key I could give out. Following this, after my website is finished
and fully functional, I’ll be doing another 2 giveaways the same week as the game launches,
one for 30 day exitlag keys which is the VPN I use and another for some more copies of
archeage unchained to celebrate the website launch. So yeah, that’s that. First thing is just to say that they did mention
a lot of people have been asking to move expansion scrolls to the credit shop, or to add them
there also as they are just convenience of having more inventory space and not a p2w
concern so long as they’re bound. They didn’t really say if they had done or
not and if they do we’ll talk about it in my next video that should release in a day
or two, I see no issues with it at all if they do this. Inventory I never had a problem with in archeage
until like level 50 plus and by then, spending an extra 10 dollars here and there for a bit
of extra inventory space isn’t a big deal for me, I could definitely live without it
and just get them for the in-game currency if I was tight on money. Now in terms of what was said in the Q&A,
the big things here is yay, no delay and of course the whole gifting cash shop items thing. People are calling this p2w and it’s really
a yes and no type deal here. If this does stay in the game, yeah you could
exploit it for p2w…But it’s risky and people will be scamming each other. On top of that, it’s essentially the same
exact situation of RMT, real money trading. They never said on the stream that they would
or wouldn’t ban you, I’d imagine they won’t ban you or punish you for scamming and they
are saying they will ban you for RMT. This of course is the distinction, RMT they
make 0 money from it and using their gifting system for unintended purposes of p2w they
do make money from it. This is the difference. So it’s essentially legal gold selling. The angle I look at it, every single MMORPG
company says they can and will track people for RMT and ban them. The real situation is, it’s very rarely actually
done. RMT is a huge industry and has always been,
will always be. So anyone sitting there thinking that RMT
isn’t going to be a thing just because they said so on a live stream is being really naive. The reason I mention this of course is just
to say regardless of the outcome of this feature…People will be buying gold, people will be doing
things to p2w and that’s just a fact of online video games. It happens in every game. Unless you limit player trading like bdo and
people still find a way around that. I also think doing this kind of thing actually
hurts the game and restricting gameplay is a bad thing almost always. Now do I hope they disable the gifting system? Yes and no. I think most games have a gifting system and
the reason for that is clearly well intentioned, it’s for people to gift their friends and
guild members stuff. The fact people can exploit this to p2w is
the issue and I of course see the issue. The thing is, once you committ to removing
everything that could be used for p2w, you essentially get to a place where you’re just
restricting gameplay things. Where do you draw the line with this? DO you go full bdo and remove player trading
entirely? Because as I said, people will be doing RMT
and people 100% will get away with it. Gifting being a thing doesn’t concern me personally,
I know it will be exploited if left in but that’s just my 2 cents. We’ll have to wait and see what the team comes
back with over the next few days when they think it over which I imagine is what Khrolan
will be doing after seeing his face when the chat started spamming p2w when this came up. Aside from that, it’s looking great and I’m
hyped. I’m going to wait until the PTS patch arrives
and the patch notes, take a look at those and then get started on making my final archeage
unchaained video prior to launch which will be a combination of a bunch of major information
condensed down, my final verdict, concerns and all that jazz for unchained and if I recommend
people buy it. As I’ve said before, I already pretty much
said it looks to be definitely worth purchasing and I am obviously supporting the game already
by making this content, making future content, buying the game and buying copies to gift
you guys so spoiler alert the video will be saying yes buy it. Still, give it a watch in the next few days
when it comes up and let me know what you think, the video will more be aimed at the
masses that swarm in on steam launch day when the game hits top seller as it inevitably
will do. Special thanks to the people supporting me
via youtube membership subscription which is basically patreon but for youtube, you
get cool perks that I can set up myself such as this shoutout! If you’re interested in getting involved,

    ive tried to temper my expectations with unchained but now its so close to release i cant help but be excited. Great vid as always Kira

  • I will wait for the giveaway, if i lose (propably) i will buy it through your affiliate link because of the great news you offer ๐Ÿ™‚

  • If cash shop Only contains cosmetics and become bound upon pick up? then why on earth is it p2w if ur able to gift? pls enligthen me tnxx.

  • I'm getting kinda bummed I seeing people talk about how crazy crime points are now I used to spend hours and hours flying around out of bounds looking for massive tree farms and marking down when they will be ready to harvest and now it legit looks like if I do that I will be in jail for 50 hours and I will just quit its insane 10 hours sure at max but it goes so high now… I don't know man this hurts me ๐Ÿ™

  • Gold selling is annoying but if it can't be converted to credits or diligence coins then I'm good. The coins or credits don't seem to have any PTW items anyways. I guess the only thing is being able to purchase things easier and faster off the auction house. I mean, I get it. Some will have a mess ton of gold for lumber, etc. but the game is an MMORPG; so just like in real life, some will cheat, kill and lie to get ahead and never get caught or convicted. There is satisfaction, like in real life, to working hard and earning money the right way. Lottery winnings and inheritances don't seem fair either but they exist.

    2 things the AA Unchained team should keep in mind.
    1. Keep all questionable Marketplace items purchasable with diligence coins instead of credits.
    2. Carefully decide which items are purchasable via gold on the auction house and monitor those prices for market manipulation exploits or price gouging.

  • Was the unchained version confirmed to be on steam? I never saw this. I did pre-order the game. Will I be able to use the steam version instead of the glyph version?

  • Gifting honessly shouldnt be allowed regardless if it is in their ToS people are going to abuse this to make gold quick and easy, honestly just paypal your friend the money boom done, my opinion, look at blackdesert online listning for pearl items etc.

  • Criminal Devs, i requested a refund on my pack last week and still no reply….CRIMINALS…i reported them to my credit card company and Visa will refund me

  • This just popped up in the AAU Discord :

    Hello everyone,

    The ability to gift items from the in-game premium marketplace has been disabled for ArcheAge: Unchained.

    We are committed to ensuring that our revised gameplay experience meets the expectations of our supportive community and is in no way clouded by our past. We considered allowing the ability to gift from the marketplace due to the items being trade restricted and cosmetic. In hindsight, it's easy to understand how gifting could circumvent the items being bound. The decision to remove gifting was unanimous internally and so it is passed into order.

    Weโ€™ve worked closely with you over the past six weeks to refine offerings in the premium item shop based on the following criteria:

    -All premium items are cosmetic in nature, or provide a non-essential gameplay service (renames, costumes, character appearance customization, or UCC)

    -All premium items are bound to the character that purchased them and are not tradable through any in-game system (mail, auction house, storage chests, player-to-player trades)

    -The gifting of premium items has been disabled

    We stand behind our approach to delivering ArcheAge: Unchained and more importantly, remain devoted to you. Thanks for your continued support.

  • I only played the Original Archage up to level 10 or so before quitting due to hearing about all the P2W… But from all the features and gameplay aspects, I am incredibly hyped for Unchained. This is probably the first time I've been excited for a release in the better part of a decade. It's a nice feeling indeed.

  • Great vid man, quick update though as gamigo just confirmed they are removing the ability to trade items on steam ๐Ÿ˜

  • They've since walked back the gifting of cash shop items in a statement posted in the discord and maybe twitter. I'll leave it here for anyone to read. We're officially banging boys.(and girls)

  • The Ninja Llama says:

    Just got off work, thanks for the updated info! Cant wait for the 15th! I am currently downing the AAU game as I am typing this comment.
    Keep up the great content ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Hey man, all your Unchained videos were really helpful. That's where I found you and I like how straightforward you are. Look forward to future vids!

  • I am looking forward to your giveaway as it's the only way for me to get me into AAU ๐Ÿ˜ƒ the previous AA was already glorious

  • I'm not so sure about the "reality" you proposed. Let's just say, back in 2008 timeline, I tried, and got banned, every single time lol. Some games you can get away with it, but not MMOs. The Buyer gets banned, and the seller, I'm not sure, Somehow they are able to keep it up, I think they just plan on getting banned. I've not tried RMT since those days (Aion was my game of choice back then and I got a few warnings before the perma ban) but I doubt that in 2019 it's any safer to try RMT. Just saying, if any of your viewers are watching this, thinking they can get away with it if they do something clever or trade it to an alt account first or something, they will not get away with it. Don't try it. lol

  • i wanted to buy it.. went to the shop, loaded my paypal.. and it told me my country did not match up with my paypal and that i have to change it.. so i searched for country in the account.. did not find it .. was like ok.. took up my debit card, loaded up all the info, pressed yes. nothing happened.. ok refreshed page.. loaded it all up again…error.. i think the MMO gods are telling me not to waste my time with this game.. or trion just sucks balls.

  • I really enjoy how you present content. I know itโ€™s far to late but wish you had a video showing a comparison between west and east visually. But thanks for the work.

  • I m a steam player , but i pre order the unchained trough the glyph shop, so hopefull it work , or they must refund my payment!! The issue for the gamers is " THE SUPPORT TEAM " They wait to long for answer or tickets !! Don't say they have to many work or tickets – that's a part of the game , don't forget this time we pay for it , so they must answer and fast !

  • Will steam release will be after the server go live or people that are going to buy on steam also have a chance to create a character before the server go live? They are so unclear and i don't get why we cant just buy it now already its not like they are making more money of delaying it on steam.
