After 30 days, reconnect them.3) Disable all property designs currently available for purchase with credits (but not gilda stars) for 14 days. (possibly planned)4) Disable RNG boxes for 14 days.5) Disable excessive resource influx items (mining drills, majestic trees, etc) currently available for purchase with credits (but not vocation) for 14 days. (possibly planned)6) Introduce Red and Superior Red Regrade Charms into the cash shop for 1k/2k credits each (prices based on previous limited time sales) for 14 days.7) Implement heavy GM oversight of the fresh start servers to identify and remove hackers/botters from irrevocably inflating the burgeoning economy.Of course people can argue that the whales are going to pay to win regardless of what restrictions are put into place, and they're right to a degree. However, I feel like disabling key items like RNG boxes will help to preserve a more merit based advancement system. Or, at least as much as possible in an environment that is dominated by RNG every step of the way.Unfortunately, we all know it won't happen. The temptation for cash grabbing is too great, and I don't trust Trion to launch anything properly. Regardless, I might still give it a go if I can convince some friends to come with me. ArcheAge isn't fun if you don't like the people you're playing with.

Hi all. Briefly back in the office before getting on another plane and traveling more. :) A lot of what you brought up here is already steps we're taking, or have taken in the past with fresh start servers. Like disabling property designs and removing some of the major items that allow players to shoot forward in gains (like majestic trees and what not) are things we've done with Morpheus/Rangora. GM oversight is also already planned, and was something we did during the launch of Morpheus/Rangora too. We had some really heavy GM presence there because we wanted to make sure that went right. Also, don't forget that Hasla weapons were temporarily disabled last time too.As to the disabling of the RNG boxes or introducing the red/superior red regrade charms as direct purchases, those aren't things we've discussed at this time. But, the goal here is to allow everyone to have as fair of a start as possible. We want to do everything we can to avoid people stacking credits, labor, or loyalty from old accounts onto their new fresh start accounts, so some of this stuff will continue to evolve as we continue to work on this. :)

Hey Celestrata, please make sure when the Fresh start server opens up and the users make new accounts to join, that these accounts would not be possible to use in creation of any character on the old servers. That will null the effect of Fresh Start concept. It will just make it possible for the rich player to be overpowered compared to other players, and that is not the right way to see for that everyone has the same start. This is the concern for many players who want to restart from scratch knowing that no one will have advantages from other characters in the game. Give the fair chance to everyone just as you have promised, see for it till the end with no exceptions. Thank you for the great job you do <3
