Server Migration and Maintenance

Dear players,

City of Steam: Arkadia will be temporarily offline beginning at 8:00PM Eastern Standard Time (EST) on January 27th. This downtime includes the game, as well as the website and forums, in order to migrate the server and perform overall maintenance on the data to optimize your gaming experience.

Please understand that such a process can take a lengthy time to complete, and thus the maintenance team estimates that we will be offline almost the entire day.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this will cause, and plan to send out a compensation package to all players.

This isn't the game that we have supported back in the day, with a deep background and steampunk themed hack'n'slash MMO. This is yet another Korean Grinding game with tons of illusions of choices, with lots of cheap rewarding systems that are actually other ways to make you pay. - This isn't the project that we've backed, loved and cared. This isn't the Great Mechanism that we've wanted to play on. This isn't City of Steam.

Something happened to City of Steam Project in its early days, when Mechanist Games gave their publishing rights to R2 Games. They issued a Regional Ban, caused serious problems in community and they couldn't maintain the game as it was. Eventually, Mechanist Games got the rights to publish City of Steam back and renamed the game as Arkadia; We hoped that it would end the nightmare and actually make this whole project something.

But, they choose to become a Browser Game that has an Energy System to make you pay for almost everything. Don't know what has changed since then, but as I've played after about a year, I didn't see anything new, or at least something for me to care as I've cared about it before, but more fake rewarding systems.

You can play it, without playing it, by the way. You would just push a button and the game would play itself. - Point? None. I wish things would be a lot more different than this, Dave. Your universe had so much potential.

And, for god's sake, what happened to the Soundtrack Album? It was composed beautifully; Now, you have a fake Intro Music that is NOTHING compared to City of Steam's old Main Theme.

This game is in a huge make-over from a nice game to a heavily P2W game. Current features are being changed, just to lure people in spending more. Good example would be the mercenary system. The first one was unique, simple and works nicely. Right now they've copy+pasted a feature from R2Games (company that's only out on people's money), changed the looks, and that's the new mercenary system. Giving players the option to get a orange (best) mercenary for 3 dollars. While players that doesn't spend probably get that chance just once or twice a day. After that they changed the pet system. Now they changed Daily Goals.
Further every single patch they update, it contains so many bugs that it just makes anyone sick. Sometimes even leads to exploiting. Half of the time people get away with it. Other half people getting banned. The game is just being developed and run by amateurs. Probably interns/externs working on a game. Even lacking on simple math and logic.

The idea of a steam punk game, drew me into checking it out. Once in game, you get lost in the clutter of the areas.
There isn't a nav to point you to your next mission destination. The missions you do get most enemies or bosses are very OVER POWERED,to ensure pay 2 win happens.
I hadn't fallen victum to this guise of a money pit.
Once, I realized the true motives of this game and observed no real f2p capablity to progress I stopped attempting to pay. I say attemptinig because I never realy got far into the game.
The UI and map design,aren't unique, and attention drawling to keep your from falling asleep. When you get killed on low levels so many times, giving up is your only option with out going bankrupt. I have this crappy game still on my desktop , only to remind me of how disgustingly rushed a game can be developed. Also, because I want to always remind myself to really stop being optimistic of new games, specifically because it is my time, i'm wasting on playing. LAST THING I WANT TO DO, IS TO BE GETTING FRUSTRATED. ESPECIALLY ABOUT HOW POOR QUALITY OF A GAME, I JUST PICKED COULD BE. My advice to anyone out there reading this ,is always read the reviews of a game before you try and play it. If its not completely positive reviews then its not worth your time and anger over. Good luck, and I would say skip this one!

The story line was way too linear. You had grind too much to get anywhere. The quest marking was pretty bad, once you left an area it was impossible to locate the missing quests for that area.

Have you ever wanted to play a game that it is soooo exciting that you click one button and the game does the rest for you?! If so, play City of Steam: Arkadia! :D

*yawn* I cannot actually believe I spent $2 and 7 hours on this game! I recently just bought the Orange Bundle from Groupees for this game for $2 and even with the boosts, this game is still boring to play. I’m sorry but you literally click one button and the game will do the rest for you. I highly HIGHLY do not recommend this game if you want a true MMORPG experience :/

I can't recommend this game basically because I didn't like MMORPG actually but more disappointing it is when you see so much "recharge" or "p2win" like it is. I must admit that I prefer to pay MMORPG subscription with all than a f2p with p2win.

Good and original in his theme (steampunk world) but 3D very poor, lags and so many p2win and lottery, and recharge, etc.

You will be boring in less than 1 hour when you beated the intro at begin (good introduction with Delton attack btw).

1: Total P2W
You can ignore it if you are not going to PVP compete, but then you are stuck killing the same 2 bosses and doing the same 5 dungeons every day.
Example: there is event twice a day, everybody fighting big boss. Who deals more dmg to him wins (first 10 places with rewards). The hilarious thing is you can buy blessings and ressurcections during the event so who spends more wins :D
2: Lack of matchmaking: strong ones allowed to fight weak ones. Basically most of arena tourny etc fights otcome are determined before the start. You cannot influence it. Very boring regardless on whiih end u are.
3.: You are unable to catch up with players who started playing earlier. If you started to play on new server expect to be merged to the old one in 3 months.

I could write really more, but I dont think there is a point.

I started playing City of Steam: Arkadia mostly due to the fact that it was a Steampunk based MMORPG with the fantasy touch that I enjoy added in. The story at the start was interesting and easy to follow, and it held my interest long enough for me to get to level 20 something as one character - which depending on the MMO you play can range from super easy to down right difficult.

Now, let's get down to the nitty gritty...

/PROS/
* Steampunk, Steampunk everywhere. Glorious top hats, goggles, corsets, and a Steambike!
* The Story - It has a story, I'll give it that, and one that's actually interesting enough to keep me curious about the next chapter.
* Easy-to-get Costume Items - While they do give some perks, via set bonuses or on their own - they are easy to get with daily log on and your 5 free lesser items and your 1 free better item, and if you keep opening those, you eventually can open more boxes to get a chance at the rare set.
* Different Battle Options for Classes. I like this, but at the same time it doesn't really do much when half of your ability to kill things depends on your gear that you're actively using.
* Mercenaries. A good idea, pretty nice at low level.

/CONS/
* Graphics - They're not all that great, but considering it's a Free MMO, there's not too much you can do [aside from maybe polishing it up, I guess?]
* Music/sounds - Music makes a lot of the game for me, and if I have to turn off all sounds just so the game is remotely bareable, then that's a huge issue.
* Auto-Battle - While this could be a good thing, it's not. You can set yourself to AFK level and get through things [if you're high enough of a level and item-set] and never talk to anyone in the game ever. If that's your thing, go ahead.
* The amount of difficulty ramps up /quickly/. I'm all for a hard game, but when you have an auto-battle system in place, you're pretty much saying "Press button to win" and if you're not paying complete attention to how your gear is set up and when you're using potions, you will die pretty fast, even with things being done for you. The dungeons and other areas aren't marked off by level restrictions like most other games, but by item restrictions. If you don't meet them, even by a mere 20 points, you will be killed off.
* Limited Character Customization. This one is self explanitory, but even WoW has more customization in comparison to this game.
* Pay-to-Win - Like I stated about difficulty, it ramps up hard if your gear doesn't meet the requirements. Funny thing - If I remember right, Costumes add to that. You can buy really good costume armor and weapons and just glide your way through a good chunk of the game. This also includes Bike skins, pets that also give you stats, as well as mercenaries that can wreck things.
* Mercenaries - These guys can make or break you too, as /they/ are also figured into your relative ability to kill things fast so you don't die, even as a tank class.

In short - Play at your own risk, this game has more Cons than Pros.

I will be honest, when I heard the name of this game and knew it was steampunk, I thought it was going to be just amazing! Sadly I was wrong, it's an ok game but I would not recommend playing it for a two reasons alone. 1. I felt like I, as the player, didn't have any decisions of what to do for myself or to do stuff the way I wanted to, everything was just laid out in front of me. My own path already chosen before I had anything to say about it. 2. All you need to do to complete the next objective was to click on it in the right side of the screen, and your character will go there for you or do whatever they need to in order to either go there or complete the task.

First day of play:

Simple to pick up and play. Almost too simple and too automatic. Overall-Fun, engaging, great for passing time. Look forward to the progression of improvements and additions that will be added over time.

Respawns in Dungeons are pretty fast. Once XP objective is met, killing additional enemies beyond the objectives provides nothing but wasted items and possible death {if you decide to walk away thinking auto-attack continues endlessly (it deactivates once the objectives are met).

PVP needs an overhaul. Sucks having to choose from the top 7 ranked players in beginning stages of PVP and suffer utter defeat 5x's a day to just earn the daily reward.

Don't quite understand the lmiitation on Fishing/Mining allowing only 5 successful tries in each per day (I could be missing something here...).

Being disconnected from servers while in an instance will cause you to respawn outside of the instance. Electrum (In-game, paid or bound-earned currency) can be lost or wasted if used to revive in an instance then being disconnected either from network issues (player) or service issues (company).

The game is still new and many changes\updates\improvements are constantly being added to fix bugs and implement overall game balance. The statements above are a quick assessment of gameplay from a first time player perspective.

I don't recomend this game because It's gameplay is just so boring and repetetive, and it's very confusing in the begining ofcourse it is MMORPG but someone who is new to this kind of games he will be confused. As a dungeon crawler it's a very bad game i don't recomend it to players that haven't seen MMO RPG's before.

This lightweight game is a typical F2P MMO, with the "Chinese MMO" style that was so popular in the late 00's/early 2010.

Based on The New Epoch Tabletop RPG (which sadly crashed in flames and ran out of... steam), City of Steam is less Steampunk and more Steam/Rune Fantasy. There's a more ethereal vibe to a majority of the quest hubs (which look radically different from the normal areas of the game).

The game reminds me a lot of Forsaken World and while I feel that game has a better art style (besides being a Steampunk myself), I think City of Steam is more worth playing due to it's accessibility and mechanic features.

Mechanist Games is based out of China, New Zealand and the United States, but the playstyle and art quality greatly resembles MMORPG's you saw in 2008 out of Korea/China.

City of Steam's worth playing if you're looking for a time killer or inspiriation in the Steampulp world.
