    Any news on when it might go F2P? Just bought it a few days ago and hoping my sub doesn't lapse before F2P starts. And are there any good news sites for Tera in the vein of MMO-Champ?

    "Sometime February" for the F2P date, but as long as you have an account that has a retail copy attached to it, you should get the founder status (unless I misread it).

    As for fansites, I don't know of any.

    Yeah, I definitely will have founder status (part of the reason why I bought Tera) but if my sub ends before Tera goes F2P I'll be SOL, though hopefully only for a few days.

    Which version looks to be the best out of the EU or NA one?

    exactly why the games gone ftp & hardly has people playing it. screw the minority, and the minority screws you.
    learn to play with latency? the game is not good enough for doing that, not when there are plenty better games
    around that are lag friendly.

    Interesting that you of all people know the exact reason why the game is going free to play...

    Last I played I had around 35-50ms, this was at launch with tons of people on the server, don't blame the game for your bad connection. One can also wonder why you are here in this thread if there are so many games that not only allows you to play with your crap connection but also are so much better.

    yes i know the exact reason why its gone free to play. last time YOU played you had 35ish ping, because you count as everyone & everyone lives where you do? how naive. if you want a game to be popular you need to cater to everyone, not just the americans & europians. and yes i do blame the game, if i get 150ms in WoW, rift, LoL, d3 but get 400 in tera.. that means the game is to blame... really is that simple.

    Never said I counted as everyone, I merely illustrated that there was nothing wrong with the game as far as ping goes.

    I'd say there are enough gamers between the US and EU to make a game popular so no, you don't need to cater to anyone else, you can but there is no necessity to do so.

    No that means your ISP has issues communicating with the Tera servers, or some other issue along the way between the two, we already established it was possible to get a low ping for others. Again, don't blame the game because you have a shitty connection or live in the ass end of nowhere.

    for you. again, not everyone is you.

    thats the exact type thinking that is making the game sink further into the ocean of failure. the worlds bigger than the US & EU *gasp!*

    really, so if all other games give great pings, but tera doesnt.. its obviously not the games fault? LOL!!!

    Why do I feel like we're going around in a circle here? Let me try to clarify it for you, if it would be the games fault that you had a high ping then everyone would suffer the same issue, or at least a sizable portion of the players.

    Sure it is, don't make it a necessity to cater to the rest though, in fact most times western and easter gamers don't enjoy the same styles of games hence it can even be a bad idea to try and cater to both.

    Because 150 is great ping now? I had better than that with my old Asuscom internal ISDN modem back in the day. Again the game works just fine for others, providing a low acceptable ping so no, it's not the games fault. It could be your ISP, Gameforge's ISP, any of the routing points between the two, or hell you could have surfed to much dodgy porn and it's something with your computer that affects the ping in a negative way. Or it could just be that you have a shitty ISP and live in the middle of nowhere resulting in a naturally high ping towards that data center.

    Pointless arguing with you Alyssa, the game went in the recycle bin very fast where it deserves to be. if you enjoy it then thats fine.. lots of people have incredibly low standards.

    Well when your entire argument is based on anecdotal evidence but tries to drive home that no one else's anecdotal evidence counts then it was pointless before Alyssa ever read it.

    But hey, you're still operating on the whole "f2p is obviously a bad thing" mentality and that's all we really needed to know to figure out how pointless a discussion with you would be. But some of us (myself included) just can't help but see where these conversations end up anyway.

    lol when someone responds to a tiny fraction of a post it's because their argument is doing so well? Whiner gonna whine I suppose.

    Nevermind that's not even what I said. Reading comprehension for the win!

    Good job avoiding the question, i would to. its easier just to insult than stay on topic. to be expected from you i suppose.

    And it looks like we have already reached the pot calling the kettle black phase of the argument...

    On the topic of avoiding things there's the meat of my post that you saw fit to remove from your quote.

    When a game switches from sub to f2p it is to get better, and have more people playing it, as already been shown in other games.

    Hearing it is going F2P has caused me and my group of friends ( 8 or so ) to start playing. So it does draw new people in, how long they stay is the important part. I think it will do well. The game looks nice and has a refreshing combat system, questing is par for MMOs. No reason this game cannot do well.

    When a sub based game switches to f2p is because its either bleeding players heavily or its hardly able to maintain itself. hell they couldnt even afford a ptr server to do testing on, everything goes straight onto live.

    You do know that they release every patch in Korea before they release it in EU / NA right? So everything has been tested before going onto live server in EU / NA.
