ArcheAge Hits 2M Players

ArcheAge now has over two million players, announces Trion Worlds, saying that in spite of head start issues and founder unrest, their new MMORPG has attracted a strong following since launching. This producer's letter talks about the game's launch, battling bots, and plans for future updates. Here's the deal: "In his letter, Hartsman also describes how, in the past few days, the team at Trion drastically improved the overall player experience in ArcheAge. Among other things, Trion Worlds has undertaken a huge bot sweep, eliminating false accounts throughout the game, worked on better spam filtering and have dramatically shortened queue times in both the US and Europe by introducing new servers and taking measures to deal with AFK players more efficiently."

This is pretty common for Korean games for some reason. Lineage 2 also had this, the Korean version of the game was something like 5 years ahead of the NA version of the game. Same thing with Mabinogi, and I'm sure other Korean games.
Not really sure what drives them to do something like that.

Also, despite claims of this being a sandbox pvp MMO, there isn't even a hint of that when you start playing. It's all just mindless quests wow-style. If the game somehow does a 180 somewhere at a certain level and becomes an open pvp sandbox MMO, that would be insane. Who would design something like that, and why would anyone even bother playing it then?

It's like that till about 30 when you enter the first Warzone. It's no different than any other MMO with PVP in it. You're sheltered for the first 20 levels or so that way people don't get frustrated and leave right away because the power gamers are bored and killing level 5's (See Age of Conan for how this can go wrong). After you enter the level 30ish zones you can be attacked by enemy, own faction, whoever feels like it. It still is the Sandbox MMO they claim it to be past that. However it is Korean so it is grindy. You grind for gear or mats to make gear as the Crafted items are the best in the game more or less. The PVP is awesome and we've already had some large scale naval battles on our server between Galleons. It's fun.
