Regarding Lag and Kadum

  Posted On   By   News & Announcements   Comments Off on Regarding Lag and Kadum
Hello Adventurers,

We appreciate all of the insight into the lag issues on the FS servers - with a strong focus on Kadum.

We are actively working with XL to resolve the ongoing lag issues.

Together, we've identified several sources of lag and have been working diligently to address each of them individually. With each of the recent weekly maintenance periods, as well as this past weekend's hotfix, we've employed potential fixes for some of those sources of lag. However, we understand that there is still a ways to go on this, and are continuing to work with XL on this front.

We've also been working hand in hand with XL to come up with a solution for the mass of alts during Kadum gaining an unreasonable amount of gold. Many player suggestions have been explored as possible solutions. When there is a solution, we'll be sure to update this post with that information.

Unintended Bans – Reversed

  Posted On   By   News & Announcements   Comments Off on Unintended Bans – Reversed
Hello Adventurers,

We received many reports about bans that occurred when accepting a copper from the in-game mail sent by a gold seller. Our reporting system threw errors that resulted in the unintended bans.

Within an hour we were able to identify the issue, those affected, and reverse all those bans.

We apologize for the scare and will endeavor to prevent this issue from arising again.

Hello Adventurers,

He's a level 50 Bloodreaver in the Esketit guild, and has been playing ArcheAge for 2 years. His favorite part of ArcheAge is the excitement of Raid v Raid PvP during boss fights!

He's happy to answer questions and enjoys discussing Fresh Start strats. Show this awesome community member some support - https://www.twitch.tv/ZZavage - today at 1:30 PM PDT.

We're also providing him with 4 Legends Return Archeum Packs for giveaways! You'll have to be in his chat to be eligible, and he'll send the names of the winners back to us so we can use Twitch Whispers to reach out to the winners. The winners will have a choice between the Legacy or Fresh Start versions of the Archeum Pack!

Enjoy the stream!

Family Fishing Temporarily Disabled

  Posted On   By   News & Announcements   Comments Off on Family Fishing Temporarily Disabled
Following review of live play of Family Fishing in the west, Trion and XL have made the determination to temporarily disable this system by blocking the use of family fishing chum. A hotfix that adjusts the value of family fish turn-ins will be applied in the near future. The new gold value of these fish will be intended to significantly reduce use of alts we've witnessed on both Fresh Start and Legacy servers.

In terms of the servers' economic health, the generation of gold in the overall economy due to over-use of this system fortunately hasn't been large enough to be massively impactful, but it could if left untouched. The perception of how much gold is being generated through this method is much greater than the actual amount entering the world.

It's true that this system has existed for quite some time, and as you know Fresh Start servers can be particularly vulnerable to sources of extra gold influx. These changes will be applied to both server types to ensure actions are taken uniformly.

Trion and XL are committed to reviewing Family Fishing further after these changes have been applied to ensure the activity accomplishes the original design goal of being an enjoyable activity for small group play.

Transfer System Temporarily Disabled

  Posted On   By   News & Announcements   Comments Off on Transfer System Temporarily Disabled
Hello Adventurers,

We've decided to temporarily disable the Transfer Service and Character Rename Service due to a technical issue preventing some players from accessing their characters in these services.

We were keeping it up and performing transfers manually when requested, but this function has also presented issues.

In order to fix the these services, they are being temporarily disabled. We'll be working with XL to get a fix as quickly as possible. We apologize for this inconvenience.

We'll keep you updated in this thread.

Bloodsalt Bay – Temporarily Disabled

  Posted On   By   News & Announcements   Comments Off on Bloodsalt Bay – Temporarily Disabled
Hello Adventurers,

The Bloodsalt Bay arena is only accepting 2 teams, and providing Kyrios Badges to both teams at the end of it. Clearly this is not working as intended and will be fixed.

It’ll be deactivated until maintenance next week when XL provides a build update.

Please do not queue for this arena, as it will not produce a match.

We'll be sure to include updates in this thread should any new information arise.
