#TERAEFFECT?

VolkonVolkon Sterling, VAPosts: 3,788Member

What's with that ad I see on the top of this page... what is the #Teraeffect? Sounds like a cheap attempt to copy the GW2 effect we've all been talking about since BWE1 and before.

 

What are they claiming this "tera effect" is, and is it comparable?

    First, why is this not in the Tera section then, 2nd gw2 effect?

    The Tera effect is supposedly when people claim that they can't go back to other MMOs because of the unique "Combat System" Tera has. Though I'm not sure how this #TeraEffect came about since I never heard it before in the game or the forums.

    Remember... all I'm offering is the truth. Nothing more.

    Click the ad and you will "Learn more". :D

     Obviously, it is just a buzz word they use in the marketing campaign. Why did you post it here instead of Tera forum btw?

    No idea - I automatically use "adblock +" on those background ads without even reading them (and even less clicking them) so I get a nice, clean black background to the forums :)

    If you wonder why I don't answer your posts, it's most likely because you are on my block list - so don't waste your time.

    especially since the combat in Tera SUCKS! animation lock + not all classes being able to dodge + space bar spam = no fun!

    because GW2 followers have been using "GW2 Effect" to describe the lack of motivation to play other MMOs after playing in GW2 betas, and the withdrawal feelings when the betas end. and then we find TERA's marketing people using something similar to describe the same feeling towards their own game.

    Oh my... lol well I wouldn't go as far as saying it sucks but it def didn't ruin other MMOs for me.

    They even have "I can't go back to other MMOs" which is a phrase that appears on countless GW2 posts, along with the "this is the GW2 Effect" and now they've added that to Tera advertising. Perhaps some people at Tera like to read these forums

    Block the trolls, don't answer them, so we can remove the garbage from these forums

    GW2? effect? what's that? O_o

     

    Btw now that you mention it i didn't see a Gw2 banner or an advertisment here or on other mmorpg gamig sites. Pretty low profile on the advertisement campaign for the biggest mmorpg launch of the year.

    Arenanet is just relying on pure word of mouth

     

     

    I clicked "learn more"


    I'll tell you what TERA does do: it makes you ask hard questions of every other Massively Multiplayer experience.”

    Yeah it made me ask why is a game released in the 2011/2012 feels so 2004

    Angry that your guild lost the vanarchy to a smug group of care bears? Declare war and show no mercy!


    LoL a self respecting mmorpg company shouldn't use the term "carebear"...

    You see this is why the average age of the Tera community was so low. The whole marketing campaign felt (and feels) so juvenile and targeted at teenagers that want to look "badass".

    This remind me of the awful MMO-FO videos

    I hope the guy responsible for this sillines was sacked in the recent lay offs. (and the managers who thought it was a good idea too)

    LOL. Remember yesterday's thread where people in the GW2 forums wailed at being victimized by people coming into their boards to talk smack smack?

    Yeah. There you go.
  • VolkonVolkon Sterling, VAPosts: 3,788Member
    Hmm... my apologies to the local Terapins, this was intended to stay in the GW2 forums where the term "GW2 Effect" originated so many months ago.

    i really did like the tera combat but did not experience the #teraeffect, because there was still too much #grindeffect

    I suppose the #Terraeffect is another way of saying "a game that was made with assets stolen from another company"?  I kid, glad to see the big update for this game.  Fun combat, hope they can add more interesting content (other than raids and bgs).

    Cheers!

    This might be their last ditch effort with the P2P model. If they don’t see a considerable amount of folks buying the game by the 28th, I would not be surprised if they announce the server merge in September, followed by the announcement of the F2P or hybrid model in October.

     

    Hundreds, and potentially thousands of folks are getting the checksum error forcing them to do a clean reinstall (for some)… and then we have the huge lag spikes that have been going on since yesterday incessantly.

     

    The problem with the TERA Effect is that almost everyone knows by now (or should if you had any interest in the game) was the combat. That is all good and dandy, but what happens after you reach to level cap in a month or two? What happens once that “one trick pony” being the combat wears off? What happens to the TERA Effect at that moment?

    TERA came in one day and drank all my beer, sat in my couch, punched my dog then stole my checkbook. I've been working for months to get those check numbers eliminated from my bank account and my dog has been having the sniffles ever since then.

     

    I'm going with the rest of my compatriots up above to where their signatures say they'll be going to becuase I'm going to give TERA its due. Haleluya. Find me live in the chat channels this coming Saturday.

     

    AMEN

    Gotta say...I followed TERA from sometime in early October till launch, preordered and subbed for a few months. The combat was really fun along with the dungeons...yet it just wore off after a bit. Think I got to level 48 before all the recycled mobs and areas started to get to me along with the quests. Was a sad day unsubbing for me to be honest. I was really excited about the game after beta testing and everything, didn't get much work done during the launch due to browsing the forums...

    Think the #TERAEffect...as lame as what I've heard the MMOFO campaign was, came from some of the forum posters. If they were planted or true, I don't know, but I remember quite a few after the beta tests in April saying that after experiencing the combat they couldn't go back to the normal tab targetting. So...not everything is coming from the hype of GW2...

    TERAEFFECT = A reminder that graphics =/= fun.

    I'll take animation lock any day over the combat system that GW2 has.  One of the worst combat systems I've had the misfortune of playing.
