    Global Update 3.0
    Dear ArcheRagers!

    On March, 26th at 12 noon (server time) server will be turned off to be updated to 3.0 version.
    Server will be turned back on for players to start playing 3.0 on March, 27th at 12 noon (server time).
    With the 3.0 release we'll have server time moved to Daylight Saving Time (1 h forward on the clock). Server time will be moving to -4 UTC. Server time can be checked Here.

    Client can be downloaded by 2 different ways:

    1. Update through launcher current 2.9 client to 3.0 version (4GB).
    2. Download the full client 3.0 through Torrent (11GB). [Link]

    Important!
    - Updated launcher will be available for download after we turn off server on 3/26. Edit: Client update through launcher is now available.
    - Torrent file is already available. After you download it, please make sure not to install prior server is off on 3/26 as in another case you'll not be able to open the current 2.9 version on your PC any longer!​

    Appreciation Gift Chest

    With 3.0 release we are adding a few Appreciation Gift Chests for our great family of AR followers:
    - ArcheRage Follower Regular Chest (for veterans)
    - Homecoming ArcheRage Follower Regular Chest (for returned players)
    - ArcheRage Follower Patron Chest (for donated veterans)
    - Homecoming ArcheRage Follower Patron Chest (for donated returned players)

    You'll need to request the Gift Chest at your Account Panel after the 3.0 release.
    * Appreciation Gift Chest can be requested within 2 weeks after 3.0 release only.

    New players will receive Beginner's Box at Level 50 as before.

    Edit: Land will be possible to claim after 6 pm only on 3/27 (in 6 hours after release). That is valid not only for new territories but for old housing zones as well.

    What on earth? Staying up at 22:00 isn't late enough but now I have to stay awake until 04:00? Good call

    This is a super poor choice as an admin and a kick in the balls to your community of players that have spent months planing, preparing, and testing.... whats next?

    Thank you to the admins and the devs for delaying land placement to allow NA players to be online at the correct time to place land on the NA server.

    don't worry about it man. Sparkle already said that she didn't even tell us on the 3rd of march there would be no land lock - they obviously don't care. I've brought this up to her attention on two different occasions and her response was pretty much "I didn't say that" even after i quoted her saying and giving a link to her saying it. rofl - they don't care, it's obvious and it shows.

    I'm glad i spent the last month preparing so i get to compete with all the lazy people who want a free ride and don't care about working for their gains when it's just given to them freely. gg

    Just for arguments sake.. i'll leave this down here so everyone who reads can see what they're dealing with.

    messed up part is, i dont even care if it was an intentional lie or a "whops, i forgot i posted that" lie. The fact that even after being faced with the truth she still persists on not responding or continuing the lie. blows my mind

    My guess is that someone paid them enough to deliberately forget everything they said in the past and be like "yeah sure we got this fam".

    oh whops, i said she quite a lot.. haha profile pic messes me up =D haha

    A simple "yeah i said that, and no we're not changing our minds for a 3rd time" would suffice for me. Still pisses me off they lead us by the nose for 22 day's straight only to say 1 day before server goes down everything on startup will change. The fact that i've sat here in this game and supported it even after having zero land for 2 weeks as part of the preparation for 3.0, now the shaft comes and i'm prob going to get screwed hehe

    Whatever they do they're going to make some players in this world upset because we're not all synced with server time. Hopefully more land will be available with changes to taxes and I believe 2500 plots are becoming available so even post 3.0, more land should become available in time due to those two factors.

    Many ways to play the game. Try playing it and having some fun instead of complaining. Might help the blood pressure! Great game, great server and super great time!

    It's just that some of us have been preparing for this update for a long time, and crucial information keep being hidden by the moderators until the last minute, If i knew there would be this land lockdown for 6 hours, I wouldn't have prepared to land rush for more than 50 days, just cause of bots and professional land grabbers, now i just feel like going back to trino fresh starts.....

    There is a reason for everything. Also a reason to keep some things quiet till it's time to be told. Relax homies, going to still be plenty of space.

    Same old, same old.

    rofl, they didn't keep it "quiet" they said on the 3rd of march there wouldn't be a land lock - it's kewl though - sparkle doesn't even acknowledge writing it even after posting it 3 different times with links to follow - just scroll up =)

    Yeah I kinda feel the same way. Which is why I made that post to get a clear picture. But I planned for both Land lock and No land lock. I'm guessing it happened since they changed the times that the server was going to go live on the 27th. If it would gone live in the evening on the 27th the land lock would have sucked. As of now that it will be live at noon the land grab seems a better course of action. I just hope that now I get the land I was wanting since I'm sure people will be around wanting it too. All that work of making a f2p account on retail to scout out the best route to the land and all that really means nothing. hahaha o well.
