Greetings AA-RP!

Many of you are returning veteran roleplayers to this site, but for those of you who are new--and those of you who are not, but didn't know--ArcheAge Roleplay has an EVENTS CALENDAR! Though forums seem to be going the way of the dinosaur in general, we still see a good deal of activity in our forums. Historically, however, our calendar has been an invaluable resource to roleplayers, whether they are avid forum users or not!

The calendar can be added to by anyone. That means that even if you are new to our site, you can add RP events to your heart's content! We highly encourage folks to post up public RP events to the calendar to help get the word out about your events, and to reference what exists there so that you too can seek out RP!

Let's see some more events get added! :D

Greetings ArcheAge RP!

Just wanted to let you all know that ArcheAge: Unchained has resulted in an amazing resurgence of interest in roleplay in ArcheAge. As such, before release, the community in general as it existed then voted to dub Wynn as the unofficial NA RP server. Wynn, however, quickly filled up and character creation was for a time locked. As a result, another vote was held and a second unofficial NA RP server was declared on Kaylin! That server has also since locked.

We anticipate that both Wynn and Kaylin will become unlocked in time. To accommodate both communities, we've added some categories to the Event Calendar, and are more than happy to also start up Kaylin subforums should that be requested.

Since many EU players wanted to stay within their server's locale as well, Halnaak was voted on as the unofficial EU RP server and has already seen some RP events crop up! We have added support to the forums per request!

As the community grows, we will always welcome support and moderators. Please post to your forums, groups, servers, reddits, and what-have-you that we do indeed have an RP resource and community right here at http://archeage-roleplay.net!

Per the Devs:

The Character Reservation process in the NA region was opened at 10:00am PT but endured technical difficulties for the first 30 minutes of availability. A resolution was pushed and the reservation system became fully available.

The East/West faction distribution was surprisingly close across the board, with less than 0.5% difference on some servers. NA-Wynn reached initial capacity quite quickly and was temporarily locked.

We continue to monitor the populations on Tyrenos and Denistrious and will enable similar locks when necessary.

To ensure that there are additional chances to reserve characters on ALL NA servers (both factions), we will open reservations again without restrictions in place (at least initially) on:

Sunday Oct 13th at 10:00am PDT and again on Monday Oct 14th at 10:00am PDT.


These locks and restrictions are required to ensure population evenly distributes across available servers, and most importantly to mitigate extremely lengthy login queues at release.

Per the publishers:

    The ArcheAge: Unchained team regrets to announce the delay of the Character Name Reservation process for the European and North American regions. As you know, our dedicated teams have been working around the clock to address outstanding issues on the Public Test Server. We made great progress over the last week and as we prepared to make the Unchained client available for pre-download some critical issues were identified during our Quality Assurance pass.

    The build we intended to deliver was still affected by issues related to the “server is busy” error and a crash to desktop issue within the 32-bit client. It was highly likely that we could have resolved the issues in the EU region and still be on target for the 10am UTC release, but the NA region would have missed the PDT deadline even after the time difference is considered. Additionally, the client would not have been pre-downloadable and that’s something we committed to delivering. Our teams continue to work on the outstanding issues as this message is posted.

    New Character Reservation Times:

    EUROPEAN REGION: Saturday, October 12th, 2019 at 10:00 AM UTC
    NORTH AMERICAN REGION: Saturday, October 12th, 2019 at 10:00 AM PDT

    Please know that this decision was made to preserve our approach to delivering Unchained. We acknowledge the various delays we’ve had: some due to establishing an optimal time to release, and others due to technical issues. This is one of the latter and is not related to changes requested by the community.

    At this time, there is no change to the official release date on October 15, 2019, allowing a three day period for name reservation. It’s very important for us to offer name reservation on a weekend and given the circumstances, we targeted the next available window. We’re committed to continuing our open, transparent dialogue and will immediately take into consideration any feedback resulting from this delay. Thanks for reading.

ArcheAge: Unchained – Character Reservation Update

Per Khrolan:

Character Reservation for customers who purchased Chainbreaker Founders packs will begin at the following times:

EUROPEAN REGION: Saturday, October 5th, 2019 at 10:00 AM UTC

NORTH AMERICAN REGION: Saturday, October 5th, 2019 at 10:00 AM PDT

The Shadows Revealed game client will be available for pre-download 24 hours prior to the times announced above.

We originally communicated that Character Reservation was targeted to occur simultaneously with the release of the Unchained Public Test Server (PTS) on October 1st, 2019. This was sub-optimal for several reasons:We needed to adequately communicate the Character Reservation Time with enough grace period to pre-download the client.

  • Players would have to choose to either rush to PTS or reserve their character if both were available at the same time.
  • Some players felt that the weekday release time was inappropriate due to collision with life responsibilities.
  • Customers who were attempting to buy the Founders packs encountered purchase delays requiring a customer support response.

As with all communication about the Unchained release, our foremost goal is to openly communicate the moment decisions like this are made, and most importantly explain the reasons why we made them. The ambition to speak loudly and frequently about all related topics through our social channels means we’re susceptible to real time adjustments like this one.The Unchained Public Test server will continue along schedule, opening for founders tomorrow, October 1st, 2019 at 10:00 AM PDT. PTS uses the same server as the Media Preview that occurred this past weekend and character data will not be wiped. The first 2-3 days of testing will focus around load balancing with an active population cap in place, but the server will be available for constant play. Later during the week, the population cap will be increased allowing for the same atmosphere as a live server. Here is an example of some critical data we’re tracking during first days of PTS:

  • Hardware configurations that support both the Unchained release, and the Shadows Revealed update.
  • The queueing system.
  • Character creation data including progression/advancement trends.
  • The impact of revamped main story quests vs. rush progression.

After this initial testing phase concludes, we’ll move forward with a focus on iterating against game play systems, the marketplace, fixing feature and localization errors, and most importantly actioning community feedback.

We’ve created a centralized location to gather feedback about PTS/Unchained here: [url=http://forums.archeagegame.com/forumdisplay.php?164-Game-Feedback&_ga=2.236141064.825162334.1569910011-796409175.1567938588]http://forums.archeagegame.com/forum…-Game-Feedback[/ur]

Please ensure all opinions/requests are posted at this location as the dedicated teams at gamigo and XLGames are actively reading posts hourly. Side note, you’re required to have a level 15 character on an ArcheAge F2P account to post, but we’re working to disable this restriction so all Founders can contribute.

Thanks for your continued support of Unchained!

Greetings everyone!

As you may have heard, ArcheAge is launching a new, alternative version of the game, operating under a different business model, on October 15, 2019. Its monetization was changed completely, which was not possible to alter to such a great extent on the already existing F2P version of ArcheAge.

In ArcheAge: Unchained, there is no longer a subscription model, but instead, one-time purchase. The in-game store will feature vanity items. The publisher is focusing on fairer gameplay, which is a huge incentive for returning players to pick the game up again. Pre-orders are available on the official ArcheAge: Unchained website.

In anticipation of an influx of new and returning players to the game, ArcheAge Roleplay underwent a small tune-up and is ready for use again. However, we did lose the old URL, which unfortunately now directs to an adult website with explicit content featured (without warning), so please try to avoid using the old URL for these forums for now, and instead use https://archeageroleplay.shivtr.com for now! (More to come on other URLs later.) If you do run into any broken links or links that navigate to that adult site, please inform me immediately either via messages on the forum, or via discord: DimmerMeerkat#4019

We can currently be linked to using the following URLs:

https://archeageroleplay.shivtr.com/
http://archeage-roleplay.net
http://archeage-roleplay.com
http://archeageroleplay.net

More news and updates to come soon, but for now, please enjoy ArcheAge Roleplay -- whether you're a returning player, a long-time player still enjoying the F2P version of the game, or completely new to ArcheAge and/or RP!

As you no doubt have already heard, Trion recently announced another tide of "Server Evolutions,", which, as we all know, is fancy Trion-speak for Server Mergers.

The above linked post details what that means, but for the sake of simplicity, here are the key facts:

  • Tahyang will merge with Ollo and Salphira to become CONVICTION
  • The merger will take place on September 7th through September 9th, 2017.
  • Your properties will be returned to your inventory as pre-assembled kits. You will need to participate in a land-grab to get your land back.
  • Guilds, families, and nations will be disbanded.
  • You will lose your UCCs, but be given items to bring them back in to game.
  • Trion will be enforcing queues and AFK-kicks on the 9th to keep the traffic steady during the initial login rush.

This will not significantly affect ArcheAgeRoleplay.com, though it may have an impact on individual RPers. It's strongly recommended that, if housing is a key factor in your RP experience, you begin to collaborate and make plans for the change. At launch, many RPers were able to stake out claims for entire RP villages, but it took team work and some planning. There is plenty of time to begin to make those plans now.

This forum exists to help you do just that! We also have a Discord server, which you can join here: https://discord.gg/WDBEgnn
