    Tl;dr - more of the same, give us money until next year when we say the same thing.

    I mean, there's honestly nothing wrong with the game, but there's nothing amazing about it either and maybe that's enough for some people. I feel like the game just does enough and they feel if not enough people are complaining (like elins being every class in the game, while having 2 exclusive classes) then its 'fine.'

    Not one mention of lore or story in a seven year review (it does have them I have played TERA), unfortunately the sort of priority that's important to TERA is summed up in the last picture, looking like a muppet.

    I've had the best time in Tera fighting BAMS. That's what it does that's amazing. Unfortunately it took a weird turn and got very kitschy.

    TERA is dying. But it's cute to see that they don't give up

    If you have a Furry fetish, play TERA. Otherwise, play a different AAA MMO for the same things.

    Would love a TERA 2 where they keep the combat and revamp literally everything else.

    BAMs is what it USED to do amazingly; however, that's greatly changed over the years to the point that you can pretty much just 1-2 some that are a few levels above you while leveling. Current game, its just meh across the board.

    Outlaw Declaration(Flag PvP) used to start at level 11. If you were on a PvP server and ganking was an issue, you simply switched channels. You joined a good guild and got help. Called out in area chat. But that wasn't enough apparently. So they made it level 65 minimum.........on a PVP SERVER. I'm not gonna say getting ganked is fun. But it definitely made it challenging. And I welcomed it. I fought back as much as I could. I got better. Smarter. And I made my way to 60. Some of my fondest memories was looking across the bridge in Lumbertown at all the hungry PvPers on the other side just waiting for you to step off that bridge. And me trying to be stealthy by sneaking off to the side. The PvP is what made the combat so great. No TAB target BS. I'm not a very big PvP person. But I was all about it in Tera. Then they ruined the PvP servers. And I left. As long as they continue to not bring back the old system, I won't be logging in again.

    New build in progress.
    Stay tuned!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It would seem Tera had taken a bad turn, THEY added DUMBASS twitch integration and other just as dumb social media junk. Any company WANT more drama and more toxic things to spill over into Tera then here they go, thats is what exactly what they are doing. If any game need a social media to stay relevant then you know your game dev is not doing anything new.

    What Tera really need is skills customization to make your char truly yours, or if they feel like innovating they could revamp each gear piece to have a random unique skill(s) build into the gear, this way it could make gear drop FAR more rewarding/interesting than any game have gone. Or maybe a hybrid dual class setup which allow some interesting combination to farther make even more unique char classes. Think about it a lancer summoner o_O thats new, or a gunner/healer class combo which dmg the mob and heal your allies, and the list of interesting build goes on.

    The share size of cool new things to add to Tera is almost unlimited if only they hit me up, so in closing its better to stay away from social media if they value peace in the community.

    You know,everyone understands "the business"of running a website.There is still a way to conduct interviews to make them interesting AND informative,instead we often get meaningless dribble and some baited ass kissing questions.
    Whom are these articles for?US the readers or to butter up business relations,because if they are meant for the readers here,these are done very poorly.If it is to butter up relations,well then send them the article to read and give us something good to read,something that looks like gaming people that know what they are talking about.

    Examples?
    What do you think of your combat and class designs,how could you improve them?
    Do you think gamer's are just tired of boring fetch me errand quests and how can we improve questing,what is TERA doing to improve the genre?
    The true rpg gamer's want real immersion,is TERA going to improve the area of immersion?
    survival games seem to be able to deliver in certain areas rpg's are not,can TERA improve to deliver a more realistic rpg setting similar to survival games?
    If they find the questions too loaded,too tough to answer without looking bad,then WHY is this site supporting them and giving us news on a sub par developer?
    With a lot of help from the media,we can IMPROVE this genre but if all the media sites are just ass kissing each other,what is that doing for the genre?>>>NOTHING.
    Nobody around here CARES about the state of mmorpg's,does nobody want to see them improve or at least deliver what they are CAPABLE of delivering with loads of technology and tools at their disposal?

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    Another question which i wanted an answer for:

    Why is the game running like absolute garbage on the current pc hardware and still can't utilize more than 1gb vram aswell as 1 core? And will you make changes to that in the future?

    Playing above 1080p is litteraly playing lottery if you can stay longer than 10 minutes in a town.

    Neat info, but good grief.. Do you think that could have seemed any more pre-scripted? Reads more like an extended advertisement than an interview.

    What AAA MMO does what TERA does with the combat system?

    TERA transformed from a unique experience to a generic one, where the difficulty plummeted lower than our housing market during the recession. The only remaining thing I like from TERA which I learned how to play was the Elin Theme.
