Please, no advantage for $$$ in ARCHIVE General Discussion Posted January 13, 2018 Yea ArcheAge didn't even try to hide it, It claimed Free2Play, but you needed a subscription of 15 to really play the game with their labor system. Then on top of that you could drop thousands to get the top gear in game and steam roll anyone with it. Was pretty blatant. Was a massive cash grab by TRION and co. I'll have to dig into CF's system more then. Because if its as bad as you say we might not be coming this way then. I swore I'd never get roped into a cash grab system again. I have no problem paying a monthly sub. But if a whale can dictate in anyway shape or form the outcome of PvP I'm out.
