TERA: The Exiled Realm of Arborea: Frogster to Publish TERA in Europe

    Poor Europeans... getting Mythos and TERA through the hands of Frogster.

    Anyway Tera, like Aion is a game developed with subscriptions in mind (pay per hour on Asia, pay per month on the West). So there is nothing to worry regarding pay to win being the rule.

    The only thing to worry about is Frogster awesome server administration... ;)

  • I live in Europe but Frogster is a bad company that don't care about users, crap support service, crap servers. I really hope en Masse let me to continue to play in the NA servers, i don't care if i have 200+ ping.

    Cross fingers about no IP blocks.

    If you see how Frogster treats their customers....

    Nope, not going to touch anything related to Frogster again.

    Let me see, Frogster is successfully running MMOs with different success but still, with some success (each on it'S own scale): Bounty Bay Online (Subscriptions & F2P) and Runes of Magic (F2P)

    TCoS on the other hand  just wasn't a good game. This is probably also Frogster's fault if they were able to influence the game's direction but it is definitely the developer's fault as many game design concepts of TCoS were BS from very early on.

    Also while dividing the Spellborn player base between Acclaim and Frogster was a very unclever move this was probably more up to the Den Haag based developer than to these two publishers. Who knows?

     

    Yes, there might be problems with RoM's quality (and at the same time still less than with most F2P titles) and there might be issues with Frogster CS dealing with RoM petitions but I had support issues with publishers of subscription based games that were way more polished and probably didn't cause a tenth of the amount of tickets a successful F2P title like RoM would cause the Frogster guys to deal with in their queues.

    So yes, I'm happy Bluehole eventually found a European publisher. Looking forward to playing TERA on European servers!

    We are talking about Tera here not guildwars 2.

    And no, guild wars 2 will be published by ncsoft in europe, same as with guild wars 1.

    U are an idiot, TCoS wasn't good published or should I say it wasn't published at all... 

  • ReizlaReizla AlkmaarPosts: 3,301Member Uncommon

    ...there goes a great title I've been waiting for :'(

    Let's hope I can play on the US servers...

     

    And funny to see TCoS in the announce. There's nothing for Frogster to be proud about that one. The game failed and after 18 months there's still no micro-payments for that game implemented and Frogster somewhat gave o[up on the ttitle.

    The poor Europeans, trying to play this game when it is run by bans anonymous is going to be a real task.

  • HedeonHedeon GraestedPosts: 954Member Uncommon

    gawd loved to read about home much energy en masse ,advertised, they putted into this game....better be en masse version they release =(

    fear an IP lock on those releases

  • mackdawg19mackdawg19 Shiloh, ILPosts: 864Member

    This will not mean nor will it be f2p in Europe. It will be Frogsters first p2p title with a subscription unless you count TCoS. And I want to settle this stuff now, Frogster had nothing to do with TCoS's demise in EU. They are publishers and could only purchase rights for certains EU area's. You should blame the company who made TCoS and made the publishing agreements. Frogster is a good company that has published atleast one well known title, RoM which is a very succesful f2p wether you like it or not. I mean who else did you want them to go with, GOA? There really isn't many highly sought publishers coming out of EU. And Bluehole doesn't want to fork over investment cash to publish a game half way around the world, would be costly. Seriously people, thiink before you post.

    thinking you miss the point unless they are allowed to publish the en masse version - they have putted alot of work into rework lore and adding to the game. can discuss if putting in things like achievements is good or bad, but if this aint the case we will get some more or less good translation of an "asian grinder".

    that the info Id want, do they make their own version or are they allowed to use En Masse´s

    edit: so far En Masse is not mentioned on frogsters/TERA EU site.

  • mackdawg19mackdawg19 Shiloh, ILPosts: 864Member

    Umm, Headon, read the whole thread first. There is a link that tells you how they are going to publish it. Then come back and post. Maybe by then, I can understand what you just posted.

    Heres the link if you can't find it : http://www.frogster.de/en/news,id238,frogster_interactive_acquires_european_license_mmo_game_with_this_one_most_spectacular_new_generation_mmo_game_projects.html#news238

    wish they would spell it out but yes ;

     

    and for frogster I aint blaming them for how spellbourn functioned, havent tried any of the others they have published.

    While not one of my three most anticipated games, TERA was still definately high on my radar.  I was planning to get the game at launch and giving it a shot, well at least until one of my top three games came out. 

     

    That has all gone straight out the window with this news.  I won't touch anything that Frogster are invoved in with a twelve foot bargepole.  Between Frogster and Acclaim they managed to kill one of the most innovative MMO's in years - The Chronicles of Spellborn.  I wouldn't trust those monkeys to run a damn i-phone application, let alone an MMO with the scope of TERA.

     

    Oh well, looks like I'll just have to wait for SW:ToR, ER and TSW to release...

    Playing - EVE Online.

    We're expecting some kind of release from En Masse about what all Frogster will do for TERA in the EU.  Just gonna have to wait for it.

    Thanks for the link.

    Just to pull out a relevant part:

    There will not be a separate microtransaction payment model for TERA in Europe. TERA will use a subscription-based payment model in all regions.

  • Krypt-JakeKrypt-Jake Phoenix, AZPosts: 36Member

    Even though it will remain P2P in Europe, I still have sympathy for ye fellow gamers for Frogster taking over there.

    Poor poor Europe, I feel for you.

     Just to pull out the relevent part.... does not matter if the game has microtransactions, is free to play or p2p.The main subject of this thread is Froster taking over. LOL! Frogster are not known for giving good customer service, payment method is irrelevant.

    If we fail to change the things of today, they will become the lucid nighmares of tommorrow.

     Dear troll Tyrantas: I played TCoS myself and it used to be bollocks, believe me... An uh, yeah: read - understand - post.

    And as for Frogster and bad customer support: En Masse first will have to prove themselves as well in that area and they will have the fortune to do so with a probably very polished subscription based MMO as opposed to Frogster with their F2P title RoM. So I really don't see the point for such comparisons yet.
