    Why when a forum post like this shows up, a lot of lurkers come out from well... lurking, and start spreading that the game is dying and stuff? It is the same thing I have read over and over again since I joined the game 2 years ago.

    The game is alive, well and kicking. We haven´t had good updates in a while, that is all, but players are still there, if you need to do stuff with others you can, and the leveling up zones aren´t much of a wasteland as people make them out to be, I say so because I am myself leveling a character up.

    How can you even speak about the game being "alive" and well, kicking, ect.
    The game is at the worst point of its life, worse then it has ever been be for.
    PvP is completely dead! (No, Power hour is not a fix, it's a band aid for a problem that will never be fixed.)
    PvE is only left, and its fun for the first 30 days or so with new content, but with all the LAG and old reused content, you have much better choices outside of this game.

    So do tell me, how is the game "alive" and "kicking"?
    You sir, are living in a dream world.
    Maybe YOU are enjoying it for what it is, and that's fine.
    But don't call a walking zombie, a person or alive, you just end up looking like a fool.

    Peace & Love

    Woah, you do make the game sound apocalyptic and beyond salvation.

    When was the last time you played, again?

    There are always people saying that the game has been in "the worst state of its life" ever since I joined, your words really don´t make an impact on me, as long as I can queue for the stuff I need and I have old people grinding for their endgame stuff and new people I can help, the game ain´t dead to me, I have seen dead games, TERA is a far shot from it.

    If you don´t like the game it´s fine, TERA is not a perfect gem by any means, and many of us know it, [filtered], I would mention a few changes here and there I would do to the game myself that would make everyone happy. But I still enjoy the game.

    What you fail to understand is any one who's been playing this game from day one, can understand how the game works and what path it's heading towards.
    When i tell you that the game is dying/dead, this is not some angry fanboy, this is a hardcore player who enjoyed the Tera Online exp for a long time now, and sadden to see it fade away.

    You can think the game is doing well all you want, but you're only fooling your self in the long run.
    The path Enmass wants to take the game will turn out half of the games content (Pvp And Level) dead to dying state.

    Not sure how you cant see this, look what they done to pvp?
    Look what they did to the leveling system, can you really defend that?
    For what? To get to 65 faster only to leave the game sooner?
    People had PvP system at lest to play when burned out, now you got NOTHING!

    Clearly, you lack any EXP of how MMO's work, this one and others.
    I wish, anything you said was true, i really do, i love this game.
    But sadly, i have seen this same path laid be for Enmass like many other MMO's be for it.
    And if Enmass is not willing to lay a side road for the NA player base (Clearly they wont, they stated that much)
    then this game will become like K-tera, only thing alive in K-tera is PVE and not by much.

    At the end of the day, we don't have to sit here and second guess what will happen to Na-Tera Online
    Our Korean Brothers & Sisters already have the same copy of our game a year from now.

    Think about all of what i said for a moment, maybe it will sink in, but most likely, it wont.

    Peace & Love!

    MMORPGs not being popular in the West seems to be something most aren't going to ever accept.

    MMOs aren't doing well because they have been turned into copy-pasta exaggerated casino interfaces over last few years. And people are tired of this [filtered]. And while Tera is like perfect example of that, it's been also doing quite a few other idiotic things of its own.

    Shooters and Mobas have "casinos" too and I don't see those games dying, and a vast majority are also copy-pasted too. The same shooter can be released 100 times and labelled as "new" and it will sell. Westerners prefer more competitive scenes, there are people who don't even like to play LoL but will watch professional players playing, MMORPGs aren't interesting to watch for these people. Other MMORPGs that tried to be different all failed as well, not even single player RPGs are as popular as it used to be. Shooters/Mobas don't suffer from many of the basic issues MMORPGs have.

    MMORPGs are only interesting to watch if there is PvP :^). I am pretty sure that is why Blade and Soul's 1v1 PvP was very popular in Korea prior to NA release.

    Truth be told, popular gaming streams will almost strictly be PvP (and even if it isn't PvP it will be speedruns which also is a form of PvP in a sense).

    If PvP gets more recognition in KR I am very sure Tera across all servers would have double WoW's population by now.

    Korea and the NA aren't the same. BNS is not even doing well in NA. GW2 has competitive pvp and it's still pretty small despite the fact pvp there gets attention too. NCsoft gets a majority of their profit from Korea alone. Even if you combined every region against Korea they would still be lower than Korea. BNS also dropped as of Q3 2016 and dropped further during Q4 2016 (same for GW2). Lineage and Aion manages to stay stable or slightly increase in comparison.

    I have been playing non-stop for the past week and I have created multiple characters and am still having WAY more fun than if I were playing WoW or any other MMORPG for that matter. Yes, sometimes it seems a bit grindy but once you get set on completing a quest, it actually is quite fun, seeing as how there are large monsters to defeat in each zone (forgot the general term for them), and huge groups of normal mobs that you can stack to kill all at once.

    I am playing it as my main game, and plan on upgrading my account this Friday on pay day. It is a great game, lots of fun, and I keep recommending it to all of my friends in hopes that some of them will join me. I don't see myself getting bored EVER, or at the very least, for a good long time.

    this post is so pure.... so untainted. it reminds me of when i first started playing, it tugs at my heartstrings. godspeed my friend, enjoy your time in tera-- listen to your heart and not the voice of the masses.

    I was thinking about how they are ruining this game then I read this post. I remember having the exact same feeling 3 years ago and it was amazing. Makes you realize where you are now compared to when you first started playing. This game is fantastic and provided a feeling of pure enjoyment... If only it could still do the same for me now. Good luck on your adventures friend c:
  • i feel the game just caters to people who cant stay on a game for more then a day i mean max lvl in a day? really? idk i just really liked the old first itaration far better when lvling and getting stuff was actually an accomplishment

    State of the game?

    Pros: The playability of the game is great. Arsenal patch is great. It is so easy to gear up to playable level, and it is so easy to make gold. It's far better than the old +15 awakening system. PVP is at least active every day, which is great. There are still new players coming, and even more now that console players see the PC version. Guardian Legion is fantastic (if not monotonous.) I still love the game. BHS cancelled talismans (yay!) and Awakening comes soon.

    Cons: We have no CM, and that kills the relationship. There is almost no communication. There is still dead content and dead in game chops, 7 months after they said they would change them. EME nerfed VGs into the ground and give it back once a month for a week as a "prize". Many of the "events" are pretty terrible. There is no thought for balance or the time length of RM/RMH. We have p2w events and sales every few weeks, but the in game events are pretty meh (some have been great, some are just... there.) EU is outshining us by a long shot, and it seems EME only has time to focus on console. KTera keeps balancing around talents, and we might not even be able to clear the new dreadspire on Day 1 unless you are in full +9 with t4 etchings and a guild group, because the bosses have 10 billion hp (no joke.)

    TL;DR: If you haven't played in a while or if you are a pretty casual 1-3 days a week player, you're going to like it. If Tera is your main online game, there is a lot of things to be frustrated and upset about, even if there are some things that are going well.
