Well despite having a rough restart I decided to give the new 2.0 version of ArcheAge a once over. I am playing the free to play version so I might encounter more frustrations than a patron would. ArcheAge has always been a game I have wanted to like, much like Guildwars2, but I have not been able to connect with the world yet.
First I want to make a new character to see what the game is like from the newbie experience – so seeing if I can actually delete any of mine or if they still have the ridiculous “You must wait x days before delete goes through.”
Sadly the game fails right out the gate with the 23 hours to delete a level 14 character. Why they cannot just go with a “are you sure” or a 1 hour per level above 40 or something but to lock anyone out of the game for a full day for a newbie toon is just silly.
On the bottom of the character list it says you can have 4 characters total but I have to assume this patron only – another thing that would be nice if they made very clear.
And do not attempt to alt tab out of the game when its in full screen. This left me staring at a monitor of darkness with a flashing pointer and some ok music playing. (Had to close and relaunch)
So far so frustrating. Will pick up tomorrow sadly and see if I can make a character then.
