    To be fair, the game had poor balance and shallow content, the kind of content that feels that it was simply created to keep players grinding.

    TERA felt worth the box price, just not the subscription.

     

    I would play it alongside GW2 if it went F2P with a GOOD payment model.

    i would prefer if they just halved the sub price..i like tera even though they are mostly kill x amount of things..those BAM'S make you feel like  a god when you down them..especially when you do  em at the right lvl.the combat is fantastic imo.but what ever they decide i will occasionally log in

    Figure they go this route eventually, too many B2P, F2P games thats deeper and almost better than Tera for them to stick with their Sub route. And with some upcoming releases/rereleases, they would for sure lose more player base anyways. Better go F2P/P2W now and win win on the cash shop now than nothing later.

    I do hope it goes F2P in a way. Easily the best combat in an MMO persistant world (action combat wise) just seemed to be lacking in other areas I do hope it can pick up on. Not to likely it will be well recieved though here (people tend to have the xenophobic "its an asian game" deal) though it should hopefully get enough attention to go for f2p.

    The payment model(s) will be the critical thing here. Not sure about En Masse's reputation with ftp models. Will have to see what Gameforge comes up with over here.

    As for how well Tera is doing in Korea/Japan etc etc. Suggest all bets are off until the ftp model (with new content) is up and running over there.

    I'm playing the unlimited trial (lvl 28 max) with my GF and we're both enjoying it. I played it during beta and loved it back then. Not subworthy, however, mostly due to time constraints.

     

    This is good news, I plan to play this.

    I need to see Tera... I'm just to busy on other games all the time (  If it was free it would be great, because like said I need access to pay for extras like expansions and cash shop items, I'm fully willing to buy unlocks if they are permanent, but I hate swtors temporary weekly passes... Anything that supports casual instead of hardcore grinding would be great, lol...

    Subscriptions are a pain because once the sub is out you're unable to log in period... No matter if you already paid a thousand dollars on it or not for several years lol... Buy to play however would be better , if you could keep a cash shop ala Guild Wars 2 but not force restrictions on people, i'd be fully willing to pay $40 or $60 on buy to play to avoid restriction locks and subs...

    I'm anxious to see how this plays out for NA / EU.  If box to play works well for TSW, I could see it being considered.

    This game should have been either b2p or f2p from the start, it never had even close to enough content to be a subscription game.  Of course Enmasse might have had to make it so because of it's contract with bluehole.  Hard to say, but definitely the wrong funding method here in the west.

    TSW also has constant updates which you have to buy, Tera's updates come much less consistently.


    Tera will be Free to play with cash shop. Just hope they dont go the Freemium route of Free to play extended trial with heavy restrictions and $15 a month Premium to not suck.


    If the Free to play model is good then I would definitely return.

    This is 100% true. TERA should have been Free 2 Play from the start.
