    I am now beginning to think that you are intentionally trying to stir the pot, especially since you posted a thread at PCF with a link to this thread at Arkadia. Why would you need to do that if you wanted to get the attention of Dave and the A-Team to point out your concerns and to get answers your questions? Are you looking for allies in your (what now seems to be) smear campaign?

    It doesn't make sense that you would try to drag other people over to this forum into your thread if in fact you were genuine in expressing your concerns about certain things relating to the launch. And you've been around here long enough to know the caliber of quality communication we get from Dave and the A-Team, so ya ... your actions here make no sense whatsoever.

    I don't get it Axe, really :huh: ... and the more you post now, the more ridiculous your content gets. For the first time, we have a PP who has been accommodating with information and communicating with us from the beginning, and more than willing to address any issues and get them resolved one way or another. I don't understand why there's not a trust in that and giving Dave the opportunity to speak to what you think is obviously a crap launch.

    Oh wait ... everyone else is responding because we already know how it works around here, which you obviously don't want to give the time of day to. In my assessment of your assessment - you have an agenda, plain and simple.

    Not a constructive OP, just a bitter, agenda-laced thread. Hope things look up for you soon, Axe.

    Alright everyone, let's all just calm down here and take a deep breath.

    There are a few legitimate points here; that being said let's keep this constructive. No need for things to turn into a flame war between planets (although I somewhat feel like that was the OP's intentions, just my opinion though).

    I'll be watching this thread to see if things get out of hand.

    Sorry Hon, there's no intent to start a flame war of any kind, just critically thinking about what seems to be going on here, because it really doesn't make sense, but I've said what I've wanted to say and I'm out. :)

    The answer is here:

    Link: http://www.arkadiaforum.com/showthread.php?806-Newbie-spawn-area&p=8473#post8473

    If you kept reading you would find out they did it so if there are too many new people it doesn't overload one server, and spreads them out. So I think it's pretty good planning, much better than randomly spawning new players at TI when PA has reached maximum server load....

    My personal feeling is, that OP expected more than most of us did.

    Some of the points are abosolutely right. But I still think we have the first time ever a real game company now, so I give them time to see what happens.

    At least we know for sure:
    1) They will never risk their reputation for a minimal profit like SOMEONE ELSE WITH CAPS LOCK did
    2) They already listen to complaints (example: mob density etc)
    3) They still give clear answers, not vague "we are not allowed to talk" stupid things etc

    So far I personally say:
    10 days means: a company released a new product. It's impossible that it is complete in version 1.0 and ofc it has bugs. Compare this version 1.0 with Calypso version VU 10... not that much difference imo. Compare it with RT 2.0... the economy works on Arkadia and does not work on RT... so I personally think Arkadia does a great job.

    Looks to me like AxeMurderer is actively looking for something to complain about, you get one in every circle of life. But seriously having a go at the Arkadia team for not responding to peoples complaints/critisms/issues, that is so far reaching it is like a dot to you! :)

    I will say this:

    Axe here has voiced his opinion. He is wrong BUT he has a right to his own opinion just like everyone else AND he has a right to voice it.

    Let me also say that he was very concise and articulate with his words and I don't think he is being malicious or unduly harsh.

    In the end it is his opinion and I respect that even if I don't agree with it.

    Cheers!

    One point I kinda agree on with Axe is the Outposts with just the name "Outpost" it is a bit confusing. Other then that the planet looks great considering it has been just 2 weeks. Sure there is stuff that needs some work (and the first patch has done that for a bit). So my guess is come back in about 2 months or so and see what we have then, pretty sure all will be working 100% (maybe not treasure hunting, HURRY UP MA !!) and over time we will have more mobs, items and resources.

    I saw another few threads on this sort of subject, the "why is this so good" sort of thing, noone really seems to have an answer that doesnt swing back to the fact that 2 people from Arkadia speak on the forums. I think it sounds like people are just saying "yay arkadia is so cool because its not Calypso and SDS". To be overjoyed at a bit of land a few new mobs with the same loot 99% of the time as Calypso seems really wierd to me. I am amazed at the happiness with Treasure hunting not being in since its the planets main sell, I get the real feeling that once the honeymoon is over this forum is going to have very different opinions on it.

    Axes point was valid, Treasure hunting (not looting, thats not new) isnt here and it was a feature of the planet, we have no date for when its coming so the advertised planet feature is missing.

    For the record I quite like the place, but its nothing new yet.

    So far, Arkadia seems to be the premium end of Calypso designed for depositors and high levels, superior visually and cost of play wise, spiced up with events.

    I don't like Calypso at all, but with all rookie equipment, puny mobs and noob quests missing here, if somebody asked me what planet is better for trying EU out I'd be lying to their faces if I said "Arkadia".

    I'm not saying it's good or bad, just how things are.

    As Smoerble said in the previous page, it's a matter of expectations.
    David and team had informed us before the launch that the planet would start from scratch and evolve with us, with a working economy. That is what they have delivered, and while content could do with some variety they have not only stayed true to their word but also kept constant feedback with the community which is something i personaly respect.

    One other point, that people have not yet been accustomed to, is that we now have to deal with two different companies, and the logical thing to do is know which does what, complaining on the right front.
    Outpost names? 100% Arkadia team.
    Treasure Hunting? 100% MA since it's based on a system (instances) that they have promised but not yet delivered.*

    The same could be said for Rocktropia and NI but since it was NDS and MA, with the majority of players not exactly pro ND's decisions, there wasn't anything actually to it.



    *Speculation, but: Knowing MA's history of keeping up with deadlines, i wouldn't be at all surprized to find out that MA had promised PP's that Instances would be functional a looooooooong time ago without delivering in time, just as they have done with almost every returning system since VU10.

    MA are where all this will go down, not the A-Team. MA proved in the past they couldnt do it and they tried to distance themselves even more from it all by splitting themselves up into the Calypso partner BS.

    My biggest hope with Arkadia is that David & co will exert some presure on MA and kick some ass to get things done. Im kinda seeing this treasure hunting as being a trial for that. The Spawn thing hasnt worked so well yet so I really hope they can do it or its going to go downhill imo.

    The above is only my opinion, while I hope to be proved wrong its rare I am in these sort of cases :(

    1) The academies looks slightly different.
    2) It is supposed to be ground bases of a freaking fleet, of course they will look similar (they are not identical tho), ever heard of military groups having standards? Besides, looking at the storyline (ingame and out of game) it seems they will get some more differences later.

    Axe....I think your vision of the promises Arkadia was going to give you needs to be more realistic. I have not seen anything posted by Arkadian development team they they have not delivered on, or will in a short while. I think if they gave you everything you want you would still complain about it. Your thread is about 6 month premature imo.

    OK, Kinda iritated i justed wasted 20min reading this bs...
    First, Axe.. if you posted a question you wanted a response to on the forum and somehow didnt get an answer within 24 hours of posting it (which i doubt) then send a pm to Dave.. u will get a detailed response from him in less that 24 hours in my experience. We actually pm'd back and forth like IM'ing for like 20 min about 4 days after launch.
    Second, Worst thing by far is not bases..... its lack of model varitey of mobs. which Dave is aware of. ask him why its this way, and he will tell u.
    Third, hunted mined everything, done everything there is to do.... as u said.... whats different about calypso? Dont we do the same stuff on each planet?
    Fourth and most importantly... MA fucked up the loot, treasure hunting, ect. I also saw them do this first hand at RT 2.0. I went there to loot some of the UL weapons that were suppose to be introduced. Well after weeks of being there and none being found and killing over 100k mobs doing prison mission.... and other killing around the planet. I asked Neverdie, WHERE THE FUCK ARE THE WEAPONS... he said he would ask MA,,,, he got back with me later about a week. Said MA didnt implement them cause they had Balancing ISSUES with them. HMMMMM. Thats messed up. People went there to get weapons.. but none were there to loot. Sounds kinda like why I bet bet no Laptop or UL gear has been looted here yet. MA controls loot.... Dont forget that.
    Fifth. If you have suggestions on improvements and really want to help the planet prosper. Why post on PCF? There are they Dave and Cyrus are here. PM them.
    Other than that. Lets continue the constructive criticism
