what are your thoughts about the latest attempt of pwe to force arc down our throats by giving out dreamchaser-pack codes that work via arc only?

i thought this.

    I think there's enough Drama already and this should be closed.

    It is going to happen, eventually.
    They seem to want to move all redeem codes to Arc client instead but it doesn't feel much different from the site's redeem method so I don't know if Arc is really bug-free. I'm talking about the last Orb glitch thing that happened.

    I downloaded on a laptop I don't use much. The download was quick, didn't face any problems and I wasn't asked to download any games in order to use it. I don't mind having to use Arc this way for codes but if one day I need Arc to actually launch the game or patch it, that's gonna suck. I just really don't like having to log on Arc in order to use it and having the program auto-log me in game if I start it. It also seems finding your screenshots through Arc is a pain though I have no personal experience.

    I don't get all the hate about Arc: I have it downloaded, used it to get the game up in the first week, after that it's all elementclient's. Only for patchnotes I open Arc to auto-patch things, and how is that a bad thing?
    New Arc runs smoothly imo and you're not forced to do anything else than just open it and log in. If you want to only play pwi, use elementclient instead of arc, simple enough.

    New codes are different from the old ones (can't redeem old ones in Arc, can't redeem new one on wedpage), so let's hope the orb abused-code won't happen in the future again.

    My biggest concern is about multi-clients... I kinda need to check arc just the way you did, some crappy laptop and give it a go... Worth trying if we're gona have it eventually. It's some sort os Steam-like platform... and it was nice for Steam... oh well, dreaming is free, ain't it?

    Really? A DREAMCHASER CODE? Lol. If that's truly what you believe it takes people to install arc, pity you.

    I always have arc running when I'm playing, never causes me problems. My only concern for when its required to open the game is that if we will be able to still open two clients?

    That's quite of a big issue for many, at least for me :( Hopefully they'll sort this soon enough so we rush to try it out!)

    If ARC is modified in such way that it allows multiclienting I won't mind downloading it and it may make the playerbase happier, more willing to try it.

    A lot of players have multiple accounts or like playing on one account while keeping a shop up on the second.

    I believe you can still use Arc to launch your first client, then use the normal multiclienting method. Still, having it stream lined into Arc would be nice.

    As I normally don't multiclient, however, I really have no issue with Arc. I like it, and use it on a daily basis. Only thing is that I'm still learning how to do everything in it, I just mostly open it and click on PWI lol.

    Oh definitely, I understand. I know we're still working out some kinks here and there, but it's an issue we've been aware of. I'll fill you all in when I hear any news.

    I have arc and i had problems with it as well, for example when multiclienting and even more with character customization ( sometimes arc doesnt allow ini editing and you have to try out some things to fix it, what takes a long time).

    Then i asked myself : I have one arc folder and one PWI folder that comes along with the arc download. You can open PWI separately.

    So wtf why am i opening Arc at all? I started to open PW via element client of the PWI folder, not touching Arc when i start gaming at all (unless i have to download something ).
    Doing it this way you wont have any problems with arc at all, you can use the features of arc if wanted (opening it via elementclient updates the game as well plus, if you wanna open it via Arc again the game is updated already) . I have no multiclienting problems or ini problems this way and could download the game from the original PWE site. I am not forced to open Arc (if you dont have it on Auto-start) to play at all.


    So, the only negative point i saw in Arc so far is the fact that it scans your computer just as many other games (especially newer ones) do for information. Since i dont have anything illegal, much personal information or 3rd party programs on it, i dont care this much.

    not to be off topic but if pwi can scan your computer then why can't they detect 3rd party programs used to abuse pwi?

    I see :o thanks for the heads up.
    I'll think about downloading it on main laptop later but for now I guess I'll keep it on the side one, don't really need it for anything.

    If you bothered reading the notes on Arc, it will be the sole method to play the games. There will be no more launching the game from the clients themselves. They will be rewritten by the developers of those games.

    There are alot of reasons people don't wont to, or will not ever use arc. Mostly is its not needed and others like me, it will not run. So the day its mandatory is the day I will not be playing anymore.

    I had similar issues on a different computer with other games. If it wont play it wont play. That is what happens when developing bloatware.

    Of course Arc isnt going to happen, it doesnt even work right. I cant redeem the dreamchaser pack - only Heaven's Tear and Morai show up as the server choices and I play on Harshlands.

    Are you running any anti-virus programs in the background? If you are, try disabling them for now and run it again. If that doesn't help, let me know and I'll see what else I can do.

    So if I get this right - To get arc to work, its best to turn your internet security/firewall off, and arc also scans your PC for info/3rd party. Can't multi client and ini edit. Pain in the butt to get screenshots. And u don't actually need it to play PWI yet. WOW what am I waiting for! If that's not PWE in a nutshell, then I'm not trolling b:victory
