Again, if you'd read even a tiny bit who Bluehole Studios is, and what they did and especially the people who work at En Masse, you could've spend your time elsewhere and I wouldnt spend so much time answering to useless prejudice packed posts. I know how Aion worked.
- Unline in Aion, people already experienced the leveling (= QUESTING) from 1-50, out of a maximun of 60 levels. And dont forget, this game is still in its BETA.
- And you're basing this conclusion about the minimum system requirements for this game on your IT diplome? Like already very obvious in your post, you seem to have no clue about this game, its setups and the engine it uses - so again, only prejudices.
*On a side note: this game is going for SERVER vs SERVER fights (each server having hundred thousend of people) while promising a min. of 20 FPS.
How will they do this? - We dont live in 1999 anymore. And unlike WoW, TERA will be build for big scale PvP (alongside small scale PvP and competive PvE).
