Seen this on a article on Sankaku complex.

"However, reportedly the Tera Online developers have, in their infinite wisdom, cut all the ero, moe and other distinctive elements from the game’s western release, ensuring the game will safely remain another generic also-ran Korean MMORPG nobody plays"

Wonder if its true, because honestly it made the game a tad unique.

Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:

A. Proven right (if something bad happens)

or

B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)

Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!

    Explanation would be nice.

    yeah, the ero and moe, that stuff. Man that's, wow, the ero and moe. *google google google*

    Uhh seems like its forms of sexual content from what I can tell.

    Ero short for "erotic?"

    Guessing that it's from Sankaku, I'm guessing it is mostly referring to sexual elements.

    oh wow, just googled it, thats really what your upset about?

    Heh, and here i thought ero was referencing eruopean or something with the OP talking about western influences being removed and it being all eastern based. Shows how much I know about this game :P

  • WolfenprideWolfenpride San''doria, WIPosts: 3,988Member

    Ultimately it's just an art style, but I do agree it kind of takes away from the setting and uniqueness of the game world. I haven't really seen any screenshots of the westernized character models, but while I understand they're covering up undergarments and such for the west, I hope they aren't completely re-designing the models to look fairly ugly/generic.

  • PalebanePalebane Tucson, AZPosts: 3,225Member

    I have to say the model for the Elin look a bit pedophilish.

    I'm curious as to how they are going to change them exactly... I mean for example do I need to see loli underwear? (http://img4.sankakustatic.com/wp-content/gallery/misc-ero-x/sexy-tera-online-014.jpg) Hell no but the for example the castanic's armor (http://img4.sankakustatic.com/wp-content/gallery/misc-ero-x/sexy-tera-online-025.jpg) while not a complete deal breaker is nice if for nothing else becuase it looks genually awsome (even if completely useless as armor lol). Also it's design just seems somehow appropriate to that race. Now if they start messing with the character's looks in general im going to get pissed. I'm not a fan of moe or anything but even I thought the Elins looked like a cute race. lol I can do without another ugly tiny people race running around.

    Oh and lol http://img4.sankakustatic.com/wp-content/gallery/misc-ero-x/sexy-tera-online-023.jpg yeah ones like that are a bit over the top so while I don't mind them as is it's not like I would loose any sleep if they changed ones like that either. Well just the middle area the top and boots look awsome as is. The middle is just silly.

    In the end it is going to come down to gameplay for me.

  • VesaviusVesavius BristolPosts: 7,645Member Uncommon

    While the Loli images are... uncomfortable (way too much like children to be abything but for me), I like sexy in my games. The other two images are lovely imo.

    There is enough unsexy people in RL to have them in my escapism as well.

    The second and third links are very much over the top...

    How the hell is that even considered armor?

     

    Also, im ok with less loli nudity. Crap like that would cause a massive sh!tstorm if released in NA.

    Well, in a factual historical sense ofc it isnt, but this is fantasy and they are fantastical and so should be taken as such.

    Anyone coming into a asian game expecting realism is missing the point.

    Why does some girl dressed in a thong bother you? I like girls dressed in thongs.

    always struck me as funny... the guys calling for deceny are happy to wade through a sea of blood with a holocaust like body count as they murder until they can murder no more, but yet put a thong in and they consider it indecent :P

  • YalexyYalexy BerlinPosts: 1,053Member Uncommon

    I think it's quite laughable.

    Our world is dominated by sex in the media. Models posing half naked for any product posible, staring at us from large walls in the streets of the cities etc.

    I don't see any reason why we should feel offended by sexy and kinky dresses in MMOs, when the rest of the media is jam-packed with this.

  • marinridermarinrider Tomball, TXPosts: 1,556Member

    Meh, while I'm not christen by any stretch of the word I do think that the previous armors were a little over the top.  If I want half naked girls I would just tell my girlfriend to take her clothes off (or turn the ac down :P).  I'm not sure what this obsession of near nudity in games is about but it seems almost childish.  Its like there are a bunch of 30 year old men rolling female tunes and equipping this armor because it makes them giggle.

    I'll likely pass on Tera for games like SWTOR, GW2, and Archeage anyway so whatever.  I'm fine with my "prude" western ideals.

    As someone else stated in another thread: The longer this game takes to be released, the less hype and interest that surrounds the game.

    lol being Christian or not hasnt anything to do with this :p

    But over the top? How so? Because it shows a girl in bikini bottoms? jeez...open a daily paper in the UK and you can see thatany day of the week

    Whats 'over the top' about bikini type clothing in fantasy? It's been in the genre since I can remember being interested in it enough to step beyond Lord of the Rings and first seeing the classic art of Boris Vallejo and reading stuff like Heavy Metal.

    There is nothing here that should be all that shocking imo.

    I'm not sure what this obsession of near nudity in games is about but it seems almost childish.

    Oh do not start the 'it's childish' rubbish. Liking sexy images in your entertainment is not childish, thats just the standard default insult by the prudish to demean others that are not easily shocked.

    It is also not 'an obsession'. Thats just more emotive word play designed to insinuate something about folks that are not easily shocked prudes.

     

    Let me ask you, Mr Maturity, how do you feel when your delivering ultra violence on a massive scale and murdering hundreds of hapless NPCs...? do you feel like an 'adult' as you enjoy the imagery and the act?

    Why do you consider it mature to get a kick out of cartoon violence, yet cartoon sexiness is 'over the top'?

    Its not the outfits that bother some people...its the fact one of tera's races look like pre teenagers and they are in those outfits. if your attracted to a non adult girl in underwear you need to go get professional help you pedo bears.

    I would think if you are attracted to anything computer generated on a monitor you should seek professional help.

    Oh get off it.

    Sexy depictions have been around for thousands of years.  Hell, even the Romans we're voracious consumers of pornagraphy, let alone their absolute obsession with the phallus.  We're visual creatures and always have been.  Sexiness portrayed in pixels is no less valid than sexiness portrayed in light, oil paint, sculpture, charcoal, ink or chalk.  It's just the newest medium for an age old tradition. 

    We'd all be a lot healthier if we'd shed this bullshit puritanism that's been foisted on us by our ignorant ancestry and just accept that sex isn't evil, nor are 'sexy' depictions.  But please, do continue to blow people into fine sprays of blood and gristle on your monitor while admonishing others with a wagging finger, secure in the knowledge of how much more enlightened you are as a human being.
