With the game’s land rush behind us, ArcheAge has been in a holding pattern. While many players were anxious for today’s patch to fix some of the game’s major problems, it appears that this delay is going on until further notice.
It seems that ArcheAge is experiencing enough difficulties that Kakao is delaying updates and activities. The first significant event to be postponed is the land rush, which was scheduled to begin this Saturday but will instead be postponed a week to Saturday, December 18th, due to unidentified “problems” observed by players.
A more immediate delay concerns today’s update maintenance, which Kakao has indicated would be delayed “until further notice” owing to “many difficulties behind the scenes,” as of this writing. Readers may note that this isn’t the first time Kakao has had to postpone things due to a similar cause, with the most recent example being the MMORPG’s first day of operation. In addition to other changes, the patch will raise the cost of criminal punishments, fix a primary quest bottleneck, and refresh the Manastorm Shop.
!! Extended Maintenance
Maintenance has been prolonged till further notice for the time being. We’re working behind the scenes to tackle a few difficulties, which is why we won’t be able to launch the servers at the scheduled time.
We’ll reopen the servers once the fix is installed. Thank you very much.
