In case you missed it, the ArcheAge servers have been having issues for the past few days. All servers were taken offline for emergency maintenance this past weekend and while 16 out of 21 servers were up as of yesterday morning, the last 5 didn’t come back online until yesterday afternoon.

While no exact reason for the outage has been detailed yet (besides some rumors which I won’t detail here until we have some type of confirmation), Trion Worlds has advised that lag and connectivity issues should be clearing up as well.

Trion Worlds promised that players would be compensated for the outage (although no rollback is planned for any of you that lost property because you couldn’t log in to pay your taxes…yes those timers were rolling through the whole outage) and today they’ve released the details of that compensation:

For those of you that have been a patron:

  • 5 Bonus Days of Patron Time
  • 15 Superior Worker’s Compensation Potions (500 LP each)
  • 30 Loyalty Tokens to use at the Loyalty Store on the rewards of your choice
  • 3 Greedy Goblin Gummies (+10% Loot Drop Rate)
  • 3 Frankenflavor Jawbreakers (+10% XP)
  • 3 Marshmallow Sugar Pumpkins (+3% Move Speed)

  • For those that have not been a patron:

  • 10 Superior Worker’s Compensation Potions (500 LP each)
  • 15 Loyalty Tokens to use at the Loyalty Store on the rewards of your choice
  • 3 Greedy Goblin Gummies (+10% Loot Drop Rate)
  • 3 Frankenflavor Jawbreakers (+10% XP)
  • 3 Marshmallow Sugar Pumpkins (+3% Move Speed)

  • What do you think? Is the compensation enough in your book? Let us know below! You can read Trion Worlds’ official statement and apology here.

      Game is dead. 80% Hackers and gold seller, no economy.

      BTW the publisher sucks yeah, but the game still offers much fun and unique game play and is still better then most of F2P mmorpgs at this time. Still playing this with my mates, we still have lot of PVP and trade run action.
      Realy don’t care about people leaving.

      Playin on Janudar.

      Yeah this game was a mess from the start Trion took a dump on soooo many people this company does not have the tools to keep this game clean from lag ,server issues ,bots ohhh my the bots lol its painful to think i paid the 150 package and i played it for maybe 2 weeks
      One day the devs who fail will have to held accountable for ripping people off constantly

      Might as-well stop posting about Archeage, its just one big flop after another.

      This might be somewhat unrelated but the first time I saw Magicman’s profile pic at the bottom I thought he had long white hair…

          You really could stand to update that pic Magicman. Seriously you look like you’re 12 in it.

        The hand is creepily white and does not really match his cherub like face at all, so I can see how you might make
        that mistake.
