I'm not asking for the details, as we all know if you know how it works, you can work to circumvent it. I just wanted to know the stance of the devs on botting, like scripted players, and gold sellers. Both are often off putting to hardcore and casual players alike. … [Read more...] about Does Fractured plan to combat botting/gold sellers?
World day to combat desertification
On October 17-18th, 2018, Trion will be merging their remaining servers together into several slightly more populated servers in an attempt to “combat population issues”. What this means is that the official game’s population per server is so low that they are merging them together to attempt to keep a semblance of player activity. The North American servers (Aranzeb, Kyrios, Reckoning, Vengeance, Kraken) will all be merged into one, with the North American servers (Conviction, Thunderwing) being merged into the second NA server. Nui will be remaining as-is. While the European servers (Shatigon, Eanna, Prophecy) will be merged together, and (Tempest, Retribution) will become the second EU server. Ezi will also remain as-is. These merges are being referred to as “an evolution”, with the upcoming 5.0 update hitting the official servers the week after the merges take place. This has caused quite the uproar as players always leave en masse when server … [Read more...] about Trion Merging ArcheAge Servers To “Combat Dead Population”
-Welcome to this series where I resolve to play my Steam games backlog! Here are my discoveries!- Game: 7 Days to DieTime Played: 20.3 hours (More forthcoming!) This was a totally unexpected purchase during the final hours of the Steam Sale. My sister has been searching for a solid co-op zombie survival game for quite a while that we can all get together and enjoy. This was her pick, and man, we’ve all been sucked into figuring out this world and how to come out on top! I know there’s a lot of these survival games coming out lately. However, I have no interest in DayZ, Rust or any other game that puts kill on sight PVP gameplay in before regular survival, building and… you know… actual zombies. We investigated our options, chose this game, and couldn’t be more pleased. What Is It? It’s a zombie survival, first person shooter, voxel-based building/crafting game. Basically, smash Minecraft and DayZ together and you’ll have a good idea … [Read more...] about Steam Challenge: 7 Days to Die
It’s been quite a while since we last checked in on the ArcheAge class action lawsuit, so I figured we’d go ahead and see if anything has changed over the past few months. First, a recap for those keeping score. Back in what feels like the far flung past of September 2015, two individuals by the names of Aaron Van Fleet and Paul Ovberg launched a lawsuit against Trion Worlds regarding ArcheAge. It’s probably irrelevant to most readers, but noteworthy that they didn’t “launch” a class action lawsuit but filed a lawsuit and are seeking class action status that won’t be ruled on until 2019, just an oversight that a lot of people (including myself) probably haven’t made clear. The plaintiffs were willing to admit under oath that they had purchased the $149.99 collector’s edition of ArcheAge, and are now suing for a myriad of reasons including the infamous 10% discount and allegations that ArcheAge’s lootbox system violates … [Read more...] about IPE Update: Class Action Lawsuit v.
