So I'm playing TERA last evening (level 35, whoo hoo) and I see a guildmate bemoan how "slow" the leveling is going, now that he only has 14 to go until level 60.
I said, for heaven's sake, this is only day 3 of the release, and you're complaining about not being max level yet?
As a former Lineage 2 player, it made me laugh to think of the 1 to 1.5 year grind I faced to get to level 70 when it first came out. i didn't make it by the way, stopped after 6 months of pretty solid gameplay at level 52.
Even in a more reasonable title like DAOC it took me almost 5 months to get a character up to level 50, and some more time to get his realm ranks up to a respectable level (5)
Kids these days.
Many folks just aren't interested in actually playing the game, they're rushing towards the end and in TERA's case we're not even sure there's much of anything there right now. Strange.
I know, none of this is news to you, but it just sort of got driven home once more to me last evening.
Well, in my own case, I'm enjoying my journey, and just completed a pretty cool story line quest last evening. And people say TERA has no story....
In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.
