    Sweet!!! I'll play...

     I think it's great that EME is giving a free trial to play TERA before purchasing.  I say free trial because they will keep characters of unsubbed accounts for a certain period of time after launch.  It's worth a try for sure.

    Just not worth my time anymore.

    No you're misreading. Open beta for preorder customers start on the 19th. Everyone else can start playing on the 20th.

    I would like to add the EU open beta is slightly different with longer hours and a character wipe after.

     

    "All servers for our open beta will open on Thursday, 19th of April at 3 pm CEST / GMT +2 and they will stay open until midnight CEST / GMT +2 on Tuesday, 24th of April 2012."

    Open open open beta! Look forward to it.

    Yes... and if it's worth it... it's worth it... I didn't pre-order because I'm leary of the combat mechanics for my aging reflexes :-) So I'm fighting pre-order urge and hopefully doing a "try and buy".

           I got an invite but  I am having a terrible time getting the game to download....Also if it really does have a 50 dollar price tag with a 15 dollar sub, then I have no interest....From what  Iahve heard it isn't that great of a game and it certainly doesn't sound like its worth the money.

    asdfghjkl I'm so excited!! The game looks great!!

    50 dollar game with a 15 dollar per month sub? Np that's how mmorpgs are like, I rather pay 15 bucks a month then free to play and pay 25 bucks a month on crap!

    Looking forward to playing my pre made toon!

    Another reason to look forward to 4.20 :)

    When I want a single-player story, I'll play a single-player game. When I play an MMO, I want a massively multiplayer world.

    Mehh I skip. The Asian theme is too strong in this game for me to stomach it.

    Aion was really borderline and had at least enough western influence mixed into it to make me able to stomach it.

    Welcome to MMOs

    This is for EU, don't know about en-masse...

    If you've already played one of the closed beta events, be sure to log on and download the patch before tomorrow, it's huge.

    Login servers are already up and you can see the servers, just can't connect.

    Subs drive away many of the kiddies, so that's a big perk to me.

    Yeah, you are absolutely right!  *looks at World of Warcraft*

    Although I like the concept of F2P, the fact that the chat channels are full of idiots spouting sexual, racist and otherwise derogatory comments needs serious attention.

    Not having to provide credit card details makes some people so secure in their anonymity that it seems their only reason for being there is to piss everybody off, not caring that their account is banned.

    I recently joined AION 3 NA to see what's changed and the 2 nights I've logged on, I've spent at least 45 minutes /ignoring trolls, not to mention gold sellers who are the other problem with this scenario.

    I'm excited for GW2, but I'm goin to give this a try.  It might be a good 2-3 month distraction like Rift.  Loved Rift, but got bored with it very quickly and ... in-game weddings didn't really get me excited to keep playing.

    If you don't worry about it, it's not a problem.

             Ehhh I'd be willing to bet those kids (and their parents credit cards) spend just as much as the 18+ers if not more...... Like someone said just look at WoW.......
