    Does it really matter what people who would never spend money on a game think ? That's like asking a bum what he thinks of government spending...

    I've already spent money on cash shops.  I just think Tera's is a rip-off since your options are limited to paying with cash.  Sue me.

    I actually heard someone refer to this as "great F2P options".  I never got an explanation as to how it's great.

    What exactly do you have to buy to play the game ? Your only point seems to be that if you ever actually wanted any of the cosmentic things on the cash shop you'd actually have to spend real money.

    It's a great free to play option because homeless people that somehow get on the internet could play the same game as me and NEVER spend a dime and never be limited by that fact. Yet they still complain.

    Err... that kind of is my only point.  I said I'd be downloading the game and playing it, but I don't like the cash shop options.  Reading is fun!

    So I stand by what I said about you then....why should they care what you think ?

    The questing in this game is horrid. After the shine wore off in a week or so i could not play any longer.

    The combat is fun but it alone was not enough to keep me playing.

    But hey, some may find it fun so what ever. Just my 2 cents.

    You suggested that I never put money into games/cash shops.  You were wrong, and you can stand by being wrong, makes no difference to me.  Your little comment isn't as cute when it doesn't apply to the person you think it does, is it?  Good day sir.

    This.

    Praising Tera for anything else aside graphics and its combat system reeks of false advertising, claiming that this game can kill WoW reeks of troll.

    When you put nice graphics and good combat system aside all you have is just another Korrean grinder with tedious questing and serious lack of endgame content when compared to some of it's AAA competition.

    Tera cannot even come close to WoW when it comes to content, Rift and GW2 have it's dynamic systems which have it's flaws but aren't bad, SWTOR crushes Tera left, right and center when it comes to story etc..

    Tera is a nice game, it has it's strengths, the game looks great and it's combat system is in my opinion superior when compared to other AAA MMO's, also the game is now free to play and it's f2p restrictions aren't bad at all, all content is available which is a big plus also, but saying that this is the best MMO on the marcet currently, a game that will "kill" Warcraft and so on and so forth, is simply not true.

    If you're looking for 15v15 type battles with everybody contributing in unique ways, TERA has got to be the best choice right now, and probably for the next couple of months.

    Plus it's got such a silly and playful aspect that you can't help but become enamored.

    It's Free to Play and it's Tons of Fun.

    Once word gets around this could easily kill WoW.  For real...

    Someone has been smoking too much weed, if you think this game could kill WoW.

    Matijuana doesn't distort your perception in such a manner.

    LSD maybe.

    nah, he's just into the game.

    If EnMasse (or any company) really wanted to pay someone to spam forums with "this game is great" posts they could hire me to do it.

    Yet no developer has yet taken me up on it. And since I like Tera (warts and all, and it does have warts) it would be an easy job.

    Sometimes people are just "into" things.

    sorry, but you are obviously asking for opinions (since you did nothinmg but state yours, without any facts)

     

    what i see with tera is a normal asian action RPG with boobies to attrackt the little ones.

    seems to work if you ask me.

    I'm a fan of tera and "into it" and I'd agree with what you have here. not everyone hates mindless quests that do nothing more than give you an excuse to go kill stuff.

    I hate reading quests or paying attention to the story. I could care less why I'm being sent to kill a room full of children. I'm happy to do it! The fact that they're all really demons and there's a cute story behind it....doesn't matter to me.

    Tera is probably a game that's better played with a group of friends and the point is to play with them not worry about the little things like how well written a quest is. In the end to me a quest, no matter how well written, is just sending you to go kill 10x of something and return.

    Yeah, it's times I wish that Tera was a bit more like Lineage 2. But oh well.

    F2P players get to experience all the content in the game no restrictions what so ever and every item in the cash shop is purchasable in-game off the broker.

     

    I've never spent a dime on TERA since release and i've bought my subscription and all my cash shop items with in-game gold.

     

    8 months of subscription and maybe 10+ cosmetic items including 3 mounts, never payed a dime of real money.

    Really?  There's another way to get items from the Tera cash shop?  Like trading in-game gold for CS currency?  I never heard that.  But I do like your constant stream of insults, they're adorable.  They just don't answer my question.

    So you CAN buy cash shop items without spending real money.  That's all I wanted to know.  Of course, I belive you were also the same person that said GW2's cash shop wasn't as good, when it's the same exact thing...

    Could be the best game ever, but I'd never look at it due to the "peadobear" character design.

    Some people have a problem with it.  I think I could probably just ignore the Elin race, but the storyline behind them is typical anime... ie: they're actually an ancient race that just happens to LOOK like a creep's dream date.  That makes it all ok.

    I can see why the console gamers like Tera - it is the closest mmo to a fps that I have seen. Unfortunately for me that is the problem - I get motion sickness in fps and this game affects me in the same way. It is a shame because, even what little time I spent in the game, it has the most beautiful graphics I have ever seen in an mmo.

    WOW killer it is not, not by a LONG shot.
