So due to todays... issues... i have been cruising around online looking for some ray of hope.  On the surface, it would appear that Trion is just money grabbing this bitch and riding it all the way to the ground.  But that's only on the surface it seems.  Underneath it all is whole lot of shit coming from the game itself and XL games.  Here's some of what I have been able to gather up.

1.  Trion is not in control.  All the design changes are coming direct from Korea.  The glider/mount normalization was XL games.  The half assed content releases is XL games.  It has been stated that all design decisions remain exclusively XL games' territory.

2.  No PTR.  Up until the first part of this month (PTR should hit early Dec), Trion has had to just take XL's word for it.  Meaning every update and fix has only been tested at XL games and on a closed system in Trion.  This was the case with the rumbling archeum trees.  XL games said one thing, and we all discovered another.  They were not supposed to proc that often.

3.  The core of the game is fundamentally flawed.  There is a post that says it all:

Credit where credit is due.

This is the exact thing I wanted to point out to Scott in a detailed letter I was going to write to his company. This won't be happening now since I have decided to ride things out till end of Jan before making a reassessment.

However for all those who missed this. This is exactly 100% the reason the coding in this game is LAX with reference to the workflow process routine coding (coding principles) in the way the transaction server handles communicating with all the subsystems and updates to relevant databases are pretty much backwards.

See it as opening your door to leave your house to go to work and not closing that door after you have left and then being rest assured that your house is secured.

This is the way ArcheAge is coded right down to the core. There is no need to lock your front door, there is no need to even close it for that matter until you return home from work again. Why ? read again ...

Yes! With your ID. You can't do many shenningans when you can be identified in person.
When someone in KR gets caught cheating he can't play the game anymore, when he is not stealing someones ID, which gets you jailtime.
Also when he gets caught in KR you are banned from all other games. They have a blacklist.
See thats why you can program a shitty client in KR and get away with it.


Hackshield is not an added layer of defense, it is the only defense and a very weak one at that, 3rd party bypass drivers are updated daily (several of them). You can see the Hackshield service, which I wrote about here - http://forums.archeagegame.com ... owt...=1#post1143744 as the security company guy who drives around the neighbourhood and occassional shines a light on an open door house to see if any perps may have entered, occassionally walking in and having a look around every dozen or so houses in the hope of statistically catching a bad guy, remember "some of the bad guys are using bypass drivers", their own or the several 3rd party ones updated daily that are available for Hackshield.



In other words, very LAX and poor coding principles have been used, the game uses cry3engine and runs extremely well due to XL's ability to optimise code which is coded in such a way that can run fast due to very little in terms of checks and measures being in place to stop security flaws that can be easily exploited.

And to make it clear again ...

Long story short, Trion has alot of work ahead of them.  That being said, they are making improvements all the time.  They just keep hitting road blocks and finding new issues almost as quickly as they are fixed.  The big thing that surprised me though, was that they shut down the cash shop during the apex issue.  Taking that big of a hit is huge.  Anyone that works in a corporation can attest that they will usually watch the world burn rather than shut down their cash flow.  Even for a minute.  The fact that Trion did says volumes about their dedication to the success of this game.

So there is light at the end of the tunnel.  It's just a really long tunnel.
