2 days ago, an expedition in ArcheAge Closed Beta 4 secured the game’s first every territory capture. Called “Renaissance”, this team of over 100 players braved through the many near-impossible tasks to secure this milestone. Korean website ThisIsGame had a chat with the team’s leader, who happens to be just a 20 year old teen.
A: I am 20 years old currently, hitting 21 soon, so it is 2NE1 (a popular South Korea female pop group). Renaissance was established in July 2010, and it will be 2 years old in a few months’ time. There are a total of around 170 players who took part in the expedition in ArcheAge, and our main aim is to seek adventures and to quest. We do meet in real life as well, having small gatherings for drinking sessions.
A: Very proud. All of the players worked hard together, and thank you all for your hard work. The original land was a place filled with volcano soot and barren lands. But after we placed the AKIUM (mineral to signify ownership of the piece of land), grass began to sprout out. We are happy to play a part in cleaning up the continent.
A: Collecting the required materials, especially the sunlight AKIUM which is rare.
A: The system changed, we need to pack up the materials to build the ships, each time only allowing one bag to be transported over.
A: After collecting 100 materials, we need to pack them up and carry. We need to reach the destination without dying.
A: Yes, if the player dies, the pack will drop and anyone else can pick it up.
A: There is actually no strategy, everyone just collected the AKUIUM dusts and pieces and merge them together.
A: For lumber, we just needed to get more players to scout for trees to chop and monitor the progress. Clothing material can be dropped from a certain humanoid hunter monster.
A: Within our expedition team, there are the information group, combat group and gathering group. Each group has its own mission and functions, for example the gathering group will find out where and where drop certain materials while the combat group will research on character skills and PvE combat. Our team has a number of veterans since Closed Beta 1, so we were able to guide them.
A: For sail boats, 1000 materials are needed, which means 10 packages. The new system also requires players to follow a standard pattern for inserting the materials to make the sail boat.
A: Yeap, and that is only for the smallest sail boat. When the bigger size ones are out…
A: Different boss has different attack patterns, so we had to devise different strategies as well for each.
A: When we were low level, 7 of us took down a boss. I guess it will only require 3 of us now.
A: We will be gathering information about the castle building system and go gain some levels to prepare for castle siege.
