It's finally been announced!
Alpha and Closed Beta Events are now closed. Open Beta begins on September 4th. Head-Start begins on September 12th. ArcheAge Launches on September 16th.
Regarding server, Trion's CEO said that they will likely be announcing an Oceanic-tagged server on web because the game's coding doesn't allow server name to be edited beyond 1 word. So we will have to wait out for that first. If that isn't announced soon, we will pick one of the newer servers for OBT temporarily.
As Alpha will be shutting down, we would like to call out as many members and newcomers as possible to participate and join the guild in OBT on 4th Sept. There is a also a guild Skype chat group that you can join (for details see forums).
