Not A lot between Tera A RaiderZ

UtukuMoonUtukuMoon ParisMember Posts: 1,066

To be honest i agree with this review,having played Tera since the very first preview right up to this weekend.

The combat is right up their with Tera IMO.

Graphically,nope Tera wins.

But anyway..

    100% disagree. raiderz gives everyone block/dodge/etc. Tera is class specific. raiderz is generic and just gives u all of them at lvl 1 not making ur class more unique. I love both of these games but Tera combat is way beyond that of raiderz. Raiderz is a clone that fails to differentiate most skills.

    Limitation is a good thing all of a sudden? Last time I checked, Choice is a better option. TERAs classes are far from unique, half of them are just limited versions of what a Warrior would be in any western MMO. I'd rather play a class that has many options, not a class that limits you and basically makes you exactly like everyone else that plays your class.

    Also, RaiderZ came out the same year as TERA did in Korea, so for being a "clone" they must have been able to see into the future.

    I LIKE how tera your choice is MUCH more impactful, wether you want to be a dodge or block or backjumping class. Tera was in development long before raiderz. l2research properly :P

    Whoa, don't see how he was trolling. But it's kind of apparent that you are a Tera fan. I'd say that this game is more fun than Tera for the facts he presented, and it's still in Alpha. If you look at a trailer for the game, it looks way better than the version we're playing, not that the trailer graphics show that it's better than Tera. We don't even have anti-aliasing and ground detail in yet. The quest progression is even more fun than Tera because you actually fight challenging stuff and you're not stuck dancing in place attacking.

    You are the only one trolling.Seriously, if you can't discuss without accusing anyone who has a different opinion than yourself as trolling,stay out of the freaking thread please.

     

    I agree with him as well,does that mean i'm trolling.

    I would say that RaiderZ has a combat system on par with Tera and perhaps better because of choice and multi class set ups.

    LOL RaiderZ has been in development since 2006. So tera would be the clone sorry. Also since tera is a action game why is it that we all don't have dodge/roll. To me thats just dumb. Raiderz combat smokes tera hands down. Now the combo system with the spacebar is cool but thats about it. I really don't know what you guys see in Tera. Its Aion with a diff combat system and thats it. Sorry not much originality has been put into tera besides the combat and there not even the first to do that. So all in all I think RaiderZ is as good or better. Tera is lame with the class specifics (Oh you want to dodge or roll better waste points in that because we all know that it would be way to hard for a mage to dodge something) LAME LAME LAME.

    Tera's a action game lol why because they put corsshairs in lol what a joke.

    I cant believe you are even putting Raiderz in the same ballpark as TERA, I tried the alpha, and its subpar in every single way, the combat is horrible compared to TERA.

    I am sure I will get the "its still alpha/beta" comment now, but this game has F2P and PWE written all over it.

    I am having as much fun in Raiderz as I did in Tera's beta .I think it is in the same ballpark,maybe not graphically but combat mechanics and such yes.

    Combat animations, reactiveness is horrid, even Vindictus does it better than this, and the crafting and questing system is about as F2P as it gets, im not saying im a big fan of quests in TERA, but Raiderz to me is a typical PWE game, and the only reason I could see anyone picking this up is if you can't afford to play TERA.

    Also the whole hybrid class system is just a smokescreen covering for the limitations that the game really has.

    Anyways its not my job to lecture anyone about what to like or dislike, but Raiderz seemed incredibly "discount" to me.

    I have played both games an equal amount of time and my opinion remains the same as what I stated.You are more than welcome to your opinion but it doesnt change mine.

    Edit:actually I will change it a bit because I did find Raiderz combat a bit more fun than Tera's IMHO.

    This game doesn't even touch Tera, I played the alpha and it was horrible and I doubt it will get better.

  • LobotomistLobotomist ZagrebMember Posts: 5,444 Rare

    I love Tera , but I was very impressed by RaiderZ as well.

    I dont think Tera has any opper hand when combat is concerned.

     

    Even somehow RaiderZ feels tighter in many areas:

    - Everyone can dodge and tumble. In Tera this is class skill and poorly implemented in many cases (like Archer often tumbling into enemy)

    - You are not limited to certain skillset - Instead you buy and build skills like Diablo2 + you can multiclass !

    - Stealing weapons like GW2 thief is very cool idea and brings much fun to leveling

    - Boss monsters seem to be better ( this is my oppinion )

    - Less "out there crazy" manga style , more traditional western style.

     

    Of course you can not deny great production values to tera - awesome graphic , animation , music and huge ammount of content.

    But you get what you pay for, right...

    Sorry it does to me. Again tera is Aion with a diffrent combat system and thats it. Raiderz quest system rocks. Its not a wasted grind like most mmo's. The grind is to hit lvl cap and get your gear along the way. Much better then go kill 10 mobs and really get nothing for it. So yes raiderz is a better game and the combat is far better then tera.

    Vindictus was ok combat but don't see what your seeing maybe its your PC. Tera's questing is just like Aion and thats pretty sad. The questing in Raiderz has more impact then most mmo's. Yes its the same go kill this then come back but its not a waste since you need to kill them to get the mats to make the gear. So not only do you do the quest to hit lvl cap but to gain gear, So to me doesn't feel like a grind to just 50.

    The hybrid class system is pretty dang good and was fun in ROM. It gives you more room to build some pretty cool combo's and gives you way more options then tera.

    Think what you want but from what I've seen more people are backing raiderz because it is that good. Oh yeah and it is Alpha.

    I played tera up to lvl 14 and will be in the next beta to check it out some more but I've had way more fun getting to 16 on raiderz the I did in tera.

  • gostlygostly Fayetteville, NCMember Posts: 134 Uncommon

    I'd like to add that I for one expected more challenge from the PvE combat in Tera, only to be disappointed. When I tried out RaiderZ, the mobs did some things during the combat that I wasn't expecting at all and the boss fights were a lot more fun because of it. If you've tried it then you know what I mean...

  • UtukuMoonUtukuMoon ParisMember Posts: 1,066

    The other thing i noticed is the AI of the mobs in RaiderZ is better than Tera's as well.Many Tera fans will not like it but IMO and nearly everyone i talk to,RaiderZ at the very least is on par with Tera and in some areas better.

    The graphics of Tera are better but RaiderZ for us at least is in Alpha.

    I can see why Tera fans would be worried,why play Tera when you can play RaiderZ that feels and play better than Tera.

    I tryed both game, and Raiderz much much more fun than Tera. Tera has a terrible boring quest line. Interesting that Tera is a P2P game, and the quest sytem is like the last free eastern game, and Raiderz is a F2p game and the quest system is more interesting as the most AAA mmorpg...

    I agree,the quest system in RaiderZ whoops most AAA P2P mmo let alone Tera's.

  • Nadya3Nadya3 MadridMember Posts: 348

    i tried RaiderZ  and i most say is the worse, crappiest game i've played in my entire life.  simply a horrible game

     

    i guess is an ok game for a F2P one

    if you want questing.  play swtor,  no MMO beats Swtor questing wise.

     

    if you like playing crap poop games,  then RaiderZ is the best choice.

  • jinxxed0jinxxed0 columbia, SCMember Posts: 835 Uncommon

    Tera's combat feels way better and more fluid.

    Raiderz definately has the skill system right though. Tera's classes have their good points, but they all ahve shitty limitations.

  • Nadya3Nadya3 MadridMember Posts: 348

    not to mention that even Everquest 1 has better graphics than raiderZ

    just a very honest opinion after trying this game.    i would rather play perfect world.

     

    comparing raiderZ with tera is like comparing the empire state building with a hut in the middle of a congo jungle.
