Every once in a while, a video game developer decides to give an update on what’s going on in the games they’re making. From small news bits, to FAQs, it’s all meant to show that the developer wants to keep you in the know of what’s going on. This is what we call “State Of The Game” updates or discussions. ArcheAge did one on Christmas no less. Here are the highlights of what they said.
They noted that they honestly didn’t have much actual news to report. However, they made it clear that XLGAMES and Trion teams continue to work increasing server capacity. Something that has been an issue, even to right here today with server downtime. They’re also trying to make it so that the login server remains stable.
There was apparently maintenance scheduled for today, and it could still happen for many servers. However, the new EU server went offline today, so it remains to be seen if it’ll continue.
They reminded that the Winter Maiden festival is still going on, with it staying until January 7th., you can get info on that here.
Item grants have been reallowed in some parts for Legacy accounts, including grants for the Heated Pool, Lucky Pond, Seaskimmer Speedboat, Skillsaver Pendants, and packs of items granted for the Extra Life donations. With more packs on the way.
Finally, they revealed that Compensation gifts are now out and are ready for pickup.But if you haven’t gotten yours, you should ask Support for assistance.
It’s certainly an interesting time for ArcheAge, and only time will tell if certain longstanding problems will improve, or continue to happen.
