You may be entitled to benefits from a class action settlement if you either purchased supply crates in the ArcheAge Marketplace before October 22, 2018, or you purchased Patron status before the launch of the ArcheAge game and also purchased one or more items in the ArcheAge Marketplace before October 22, 2018, while maintaining Patron status.

Nature of the Settlement:

An insurer for Trion Worlds, the maker of ArcheAge, has agreed to establish a settlement fund of $420,000 from which eligible players may make a claim for a cash payment. The fund will also be used to pay settlement administration expenses, court-awarded service awards, and court-awarded attorneys’ fees and expenses.

The settlement resolves a lawsuit over whether Trion violated California’s Consumers Legal Remedies Act, False Advertising Law, and Unfair Competition law, or made negligent misrepresentations when it failed to provide a 10% discount on ArcheAge Marketplace purchases to U.S. players who bought patron status before the game’s U.S. launch and when it sold supply crates in the ArcheAge Marketplace that gave U.S. players a chance to win virtual items of varying value.
