     ...ugh I just have to be a dick about this.. I mean we all make typos now and then, but seriously??

     Thank god this guy is not doing the translation.

    Since the dead post has been given life, and I'm looking at my own post, I figured I might as well comment too ^^

    Well spelling is bad, at first I thought he might be korean, but then I re read his post and I got confused a little. Now I don't think he's korean because he said "I'd rather the western fantasy". I guess he means he'd prefer western fantasy over east's.

    He does have a good point, it all depends on the taste. But I don't think we are discussing taste here. I was wondering why EnMass is making big fuss about Westernization. BW making SWTOR and then saying they are delivering story. And then they said that this will be the first fully voiced MMO. So that is one of SWTOR's biggie.

    But EnMass focused heavily on this "Westernization", but never gave any info. I saw an interview with dev, and even he said the best I can define is "making the game fun for West" something along this line.

    They haven't come out and excatly said anything about their westernization process, the info has been really dull. This is what I'm trying to get at.

    I'm thinking: if the quest says collect 10 of x, we'll have to kill the x only 10 times.

    Is this the only thing?

     Im asuming this is a serious question because you asked.  Without gettng into a lengthly explanation of whats different about people on the other side of the global I will bullet point some of them for you.

     

    Humor and what you find funny that someone from another culture doesnt

    Voice acting

    Quest content

    I would hope armor types but its unlikely.  Im sure female melee combat warriors will be wearing high heels and lingerie

    Like you said although that would not take more than a few months to realise, especially with a team as big and experiences as EN MASSE. The reason why they take so long is because the korean release version lacks enough content for the western consumer. The level cap of 60 can't be reached yet, which means there is NO endgame content yet. I fear for a delay to 2012...

    I'll bump this thread in six months, we'll see how Tera turned out by then, right?

    I dont need 6 months.Allready played the beta and was the best experience i had in any mmo so far.

    Seriously if they only translate the game it will be good to go.Reached lvl 33 in 1 week with no actual grouping (group for elites and main story quests = a lot more xp than solo).

     

    So how'd Tera turn out? :3

    Still GOTY, right? Right?!

    Game isn't even released yet in NA where most of the issues should be fixed (content) so it will be another 6 month wait till we get the game to really know.

    westernization = dumbed down for the lowest common denominator

    Why leave the game the w ay it is and just localize it? Knew it would happen with Frogster as a publisher thats why I wont touch this game unless they are getting rid of Suckster.

    We need a MMORPG Cataclysm asap, finish the dark age of MMORPGS now!

    Besides the censorship, is the game even worth playing?

    Seriously if it's just cruddy controls/plot/action or generic mmo  then it's not worth the time.

     

    Are there any players out there on other Tera Servers that can reply?

    Not really, main difference between the Korean/US Aion was the grind.

  • KhorsKhors San Antonio, TXPosts: 147Member

    I think EnMasse is looking at the market that appreciates more challenging and community-centric and reliant massively-multiplayer content tweaks with achievements and minimizing the "ease"  as well as "grind" of game-play in some regards.

     

    I think those things that were hinted at previously would be appreciated.

    I can answer for him probably. It turned out good enough that a lot of people enjoy it, and people who are incapable of enjoying more than 1 MMO franchise are expressing e-penis envy pretty transparently.

    I warned you people over a year ago that this would be another MMO-Diarrhea fest.

     

    But nobody ever listens.
