Current Archeage 101 Video
What is Archeage 101?
Archeage 101 is a project now three years in the making. What started off as a YouTube video series has now evolved into a combination new player guide that incorporates a website, a YouTube channel, and a Twitch Channel. Being a Korean based game with a NA/EU publisher, we are never quite sure of all the little intricacies with patches. Given that Archeage Unchained is going to follow a new and unique business model, it really will be its own game, so it needs to be presented as such.
Why did you make it?
I started making videos when I was a member of a guild in Revelation Online. I would discover things and I quickly learned that text guides didn’t always give the answers in the best possible presentation manner. Getting asked the same question 10-15 times a day means that you clearly know what you are doing, but having to stop what you are doing to go and help people 10-15 times a day does start to take its toll on your ability to meet your own goals.
A good guild member should be willing to do this; a good guild leader must.
When I went back to Archeage I discovered that instead of using three hours a day answering questions and giving the same short answers over and over again, I could present the material in a more structured format so that the answer was reusable. Even better, it meant that the answer was shareable.
Do you make Custom Videos?
I do make custom videos based on topics. If enough people are asking me for a video, I will move it up in priority on the production schedule. This product is designed to be a community service. That does not mean I can always stop what I’m doing and make the video you want right now. Sometimes I know what groundwork needs to be laid before we get to a topic. For immediate answers, check out my stream on Twitch which is a more laid back and casual classroom.
Will you continue to cover both Legacy and Unchained content?
Regrettably I will not. I have found over the last four years that in order to be a good content creator you have to be up to your neck in the content you make. Although I am retired and it would seem that I have all the time in the world to just play video games and make content, I am first and foremost a father and husband and while the Paradox Gaming Network is like family to me, my real world responsibilities will always take precedence over my Content Creation.
While I love Archeage and I’m coming back for one more run, I cannot simultaneously support Unchained and Legacy content and the other projects I have started working on. I will do everything in my power to ensure that the content I make still has some relevance to Legacy players to the best of my knowledge and ability. I hope that there are content creators in the community who want to step up to the plate and help with the Legacy side of this.
If anyone is interested in this, contact me and I will see what we can do to collaborate and help promote your content.
