Interviews: Past, Present & Future Insights with Merv Lee Kwai
Dec. 18, 2017

January 2015 Merv "Khrolan" Lee Kwai arrived as producer of ArcheAge. In July 2017 the new Community Manager (Joe "TheBlueMuzzy" Brogno) was defined, replacing Seraphina "Celestrata" Brennan, who was promoted as associate producer.

Since these changes, we've seen a little less of Khrolan in the live broadcasts of Trion Worlds on Twitch Friday, so I wanted to spend a little more time with Merv Lee Kwai and see if we can give it a bit more of the other 4.0 updates and the future of ArcheAge.

There are many differences between all the regional versions of ArcheAge. Most of them are related to the market and the methods of distribution of articles. The NA / EU regions have the most conservative market of all AAs and it is mainly due to our commitment to as many ways of competing to make offers as possible.

Our version of Maelstrom will have benefited from at least four patches released on KR by XL 4.0. We recently changed in Lunagem. Initially we requested a method of deconstruction and the possibility of logging in before Lunagems 4.0. We live with the second option, and that will probably be the biggest difference in the game between the regions.
