GW2 seems to be a carebear game as it has no world pvp so you have no chance of being ganked, it's basically easymode mmo.
Tera seems to be a lot more hardcore so it edges it.
WOW however will still be top dog and you all know it.

Yup. that was a more appropriate title for this article.
Other than that, no comment. I've said it all before in the other 516,789 threads about the same topic. Actually surprised MMORPG.com chose to do this article.
True. I was thinking only of the title. This is more appropriate.

I have never understood this mentallity myself Neutor. I must be special because I was born with this ability to enjoy more than one game and not feel the need to bash a game or the players who play it if I don't. I really see no need to pick which game is better than the other lol.
No signature, I don't have a pen

True, but I welcome the comparisons, having played GW2 and not Tera, I'm curious how others find they measure up.

Fair enough, but we all see where these threads always lead on this site. It seems odd to me for MMORPG.com staff to actually start one lol.
I played both betas and tehy're both crap imho.
Both games don't have anything to offer what I'm expecting in a MMORPG. No meaningful crafting or economy to speak of, no freeform skillsystem etc.
TERA is getting even worse as it is as they decided to remodel the characters. The overly sexed up characters were just fitting the game and now they get rid of it to get a lower aged rating or whatever.The combat isn't really that exciting and I was hoping for something more like SoulCalibur. They couldn't deliver tho imho.
GW2 is even more boring of a MMO, and I'd rather go play a good FPS, where I basically get the same features of instant PvP for a single box price.
Sorry, but no matter how I look at the both titles, they simply can't catch my interest.

Perhaps they made this post to decide which members to kick/ban.
lol agreed. The clear loser here is SWTOR.
Tera's great PVP, GW2 great PVE, what more can the MMO world ask for. If you feel the need to take a stance and defend a game as if it was your mother, I suggest you get out more. They are just games, we are just gamers. 10 years ago we wouldve had neither.
This type of rivalry is what killed the "community" feeling in MMOs. It is why people play a game for 2 months and abandon it like a bad ex-girlfriend.
The problem with Tera is the problem with Rift and soon to be Secret World. You put lipstick on a pig and expect something different. Adding a cross hair doesnt hide the by the numbers MMO design. You can't do one thing different and expect people to fall in love with your product.
And if you like MMOs fine, but this is just another one, and a lot of folk are looking foreward to playing an MMORPG.
Remember... all I'm offering is the truth. Nothing more.
I played in the Tera beta, it bored me pretty fast might be just me but meh. The combat is new? I don't think so there are a few action combat systems that have been out for a while now. It felt a lot like Dragon Nest, or Vindictus but in an open world area.
And imo it just wasn't enough, if I just want to play a game trying to be like a FPS, why not just go find a good FPS instead = , there really wasn't anything else I found interesting, Story? Quests? all felt generic and bland.
In GW2, I will say the instanced PvP was ok but I'll say the same thing I did with Tara for that one. It only had Conquest which again felt too much like trying to copy a FPS, It's not Battlefield. Maybe when we get more game types, and some 1 vs 1 dueling I'll be a little more interested in that sort of pvp.
However GW2 has many other things I do like, the story, the W v W v W pvp, Dynamic event system, no holy trinity, and more. I'll give GW2 my vote.

Well I guess I'm just the opposite of you. I have always had this hope that foums could be a place for rational discussion. I have never enjoyed the forum "PvP" on this site or any others. I guess though to have a forum that would have no "PvP" it would have to have one member only, me. Now that would be boring lol.
Pro Tip: If you think GW2 combat is like any other "traditional" tank+spank "sit there and spam skills" MMO than you are either
A) doing it wrong
never got past level 3-4 or so
C) both A and B
D) actually playing TERA
I don't think the bias is obvious, I think that TERA as a whole is nothing but another Eastern themed EQ clone with a gimmick, just like every other MMO since WoW that has been over hyped and has crashed and burned.

I find it odd you keep making the remark that Tera is a skill spam MMO. I play my sorcerer different in almost every fight I engage in. I actually rarely use the set up combos the game provides and change my skill useage based on the situation. I guess it's all about how the player chooses to play the game. I find it hard to beleive it's any different in GW2.
Bought both games.
Tera is nice but after spending all weekend being blow away by GW2's WvWvW battles I don't think I can go back to tera unless they implement a similar guild / castle / territory system.
