    I personaly have not played archeaeg. Why ? well I really liked the game when it was in development, but when they abandoned it, it made the game look weak sort of and i thought it will launch and soon will close its doors and what pretty much seemd so for a long time cause of the bad news of it evry week. I never want to play a game that i chant even finish, but now it dosent seem to be the case of archeaeg anymore. The thing keeping me from playing is the bad things still continuing. Specifficly the land grabbing, wold love to see a cap to land grabbing or something or anything on that front really. Owerall if the corrent things would be fixed then the game wold get alot of players joining the game, yet i think even after that i think i still woldnt want to play the game. So why i still woldnt want to play it, well there are tons of games who fk up less and the game is too unreliable to me.

      Also the archeaeg news is getting anoying because noone likes the game anymore. Anyone claiming to like archeaeg either has been lucky enoth to get to login(server crashes) and really likes to be beaten up by game makers or its the guy with lots of land.

    And not a peep about the upcoming 2.0 patch for Path of Exile?…true it’s not out yet but there is some massive news for the game, desync has been “fixed” with a lockstep mode, if your latency means you can’t use lockstep there are more fixes to the standard method of sync.
    Massive act 4, new mechanics involving the passive tree and quality of life fixes including customisable loot filters.

    So Da bomb for PoE
    And i hate to say it but A-bomb for mmo bomb for not picking it up in any news article(that i could see)

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?
