North American ArcheAge players haven't exactly enjoyed the weekend they had planned out when it comes to the launch of the fresh start servers. Unlike their EU brethren, NA players spent the weekend dealing with lockouts, restarts, and disconnects -- and Trion spent the weekend trying to fix the issue.
Their solution? To divide the fresh start server into servers, probably in an effort to alleviate the strain caused by players trying to access it. Unfortunately, players aren't exactly happy with the solution, and are instead worried about the playerbase being broken up and the chaos it might cause later.
Right now, that doesn't seem to matter much however, as there continues to be reports of server issues even with them being split. As of now, things seem to be a bit more under control -- at least according to ArcheAge who tweeted about 7 hours ago that the "servers have stabilized." That said, some players have replied to the tweet saying that they are still experiencing issues -- one even reporting that they are still stuck in extremely long queues when they aren't being disconnected.
Hopefully, Trion will get this straightened out today (third day's the charm, right?). In the meantime, Brasse has already promised some sort of compensation package for players.
If you'd like to keep track of the game's status and avoid the whole logging in drama until things are 100% fixed, ArcheAge's CM Celestrata Bloodsong has been posting updates on the game forums. They can be found here.
