ArcheAge Jan 2022

Kakao Games is still working to prevent bad actors in ArcheAge. The game's new publisher banned over 20,000 accounts last week and brought the hammer down on a further 273 this week, while suspending 282 more for seven days.

In addition, free trial accounts are getting more restrictions, which were laid out in a post today. They generally deal with giving items to other players, whether through mail, the Auction House, or direct player-to-player trade. This is all likely a means of preventing free accounts from being used to facilitate transactions involving gold sellers -- which you would think any company operating a F2P game would know is a thing by now, but shrug.

Finally, if you're looking for a fresh start server, you'll have to put those plans on hold for a while. The schedule for Nehliya, Kyrios, Kyprosa, and Erenor servers has been postponed "until further notice." There were a few more small changes made in today's patch, which you can read about here.
