ArcheAge's Hartsman: 'We're banning about 5K a day'

Trion CEO Scott Hartsman took to Twitter today to address concerns over botting and economy-destroying exploits in ArcheAge. He says that some of the shenanigans making the rounds on Reddit are legit and are "on XL's plate for fixing," though "much of it is false forum bragging." He also says...

The Stream Team: The daily grind for gilda in ArcheAge

After you finish up the story line quest in ArcheAge, the best supply of gilda stars dries up. And since all the cool toys -- from boats to houses to farm wagons -- are bought with those specialty coins, many players are constantly in a state of wanting more. (Whether players keep the deeds or...

The Daily Grind: What long term MMO goals are you working toward?

I've resigned myself to getting a fishing boat in ArcheAge round about 2017. That's OK, because there's a lot of other stuff to do in the game and I'm having fun with it, but good grief does 250 gilda stars and two thunderstruck logs seem impossible at this point. That boat is my goal, though,...

The Stream Team: Building your first ship in ArcheAge

One of the best things about ArcheAge is sailing around the world, whether you are looking for trouble on the high seas or just exploring uncharted islands.

Trion responds to ArcheAge's 10 percent patron discount controversy

Things are never dull in the ArcheAge community. The latest brouhaha, as exemplified by this 100-page (as of press time) threadnaught, has to do with the fact that patron account holders haven't received the 10 percent cash shop discount that was promised pre-release. Massively contacted Trion...

Jukebox Heroes: ArcheAge's soundtrack

ArcheAge is well-known for being one of the more beautiful MMO game worlds out there, but does its music stack up in comparison? The answer to that is a little yes and a little no. I got ahold of it several months ago, well before I was even paying attention to this game or its strong following. I...

Trion explains why ArcheAge uses Hackshield

Ever since ArcheAge's launch, Massively has been deluged with queries about Trion's use of Hackshield, an anti-cheating toolkit created by Korean company AhnLab, Inc. Western gamers aren't traditionally fond of such security programs; as of the time of this writing, even Hackshield's meager entry...

The Daily Grind: Do you deal with publisher shenanigans for a game you love?

I love ArcheAge. It's basically rekindled my passion for MMOs, and despite its design flaws and a godawful business model, it's easily my favorite genre title in quite some time. That said, Trion's acting like it's never done this before. The company's customer service is flat out terrible, as...

Here's some of the exploiting currently happening in ArcheAge

How's Trion's war against ArcheAge botters, exploiters, and cheaters currently going? Not so well if a recently released player video is an accurate barometer. A YouTuber named EraChanZ published a four-minute clip showing players abusing a teleport exploit to appear inside of a specialty...
