tera playerbase is dying

    That's quite contrary to what I've seen from today even. Many people talking in the tera-pc general section, among them Cobaltdragon too.

    MMO's in general are not as popular as they once were. When I came to Tera I was surprised so many people played it. I don't think you guys are out there on a few of the good but much less populated games, you would realize how many players Tera really has. Of course there are a few games with a decent player base, but they are few and far between these days. The player base is growing up, moving on, etc. But quite frankly threads like this and toxic people on the global chat are what help kill games. If a new player sees this...they will think if the game is dying why should I stay and invest time in it? I see new players all the time in global chat ask for information on things and they get snide answers. I try to answer when I can but this kind of behavior doesn't keep games alive. You can blame EME, and sure they play their part, but so does everyone else. If you want a game to stay alive, you have to do your part and not sit around blaming everyone else. Be kind, help newer players, don't kick them from parties...teach them. Answer their questions. Maybe they will stick around and even tell their friends hey Tera is a good game with great players, lets play that!

    On top of that you have a handful of players that have been intentionally, actively artificially inflating things on the market. Things have doubled and even tripled in price over the last couple months. That is also a game killer. People won't stay if they just can't afford to buy things they need or a little luxury now and again.

    Those steam statistics are.. no words.

    I miss how TERA was when I started playing back in late 2013. I was so addicted then. Now the game is just mehhh. There is nothing to do. The same "events" are every week, if you even call that events. EME does not converse with the community on the forums, so thats understandable that people come to the forums and ask for help but they don't get it they leave. Thats like going into a store and going to the service desk and no ones there, ofc you're going to leave if theres no employees to help you. EME needs to bring back the old FUN events, such as BAM KILLER, Kiras potion shack, MONGOS, BG Jackpots, Ultra fire turbo time, event's that are actually fun and people looked forward to logging in. Stop being lazy and make regular news posts. OLD EME staff made news posts every day of upcoming events, they were creative and thought of new things to do. Same thing in "this week in tera". "Double vg rewards, or gold, increased drops in dungeons, increased bg credits." MEH. Bring back BG jackpots. Give people a reason to queue and do battlegrounds. This game is just 1 huge job now tbh rather than fun and entertainment. Bring back old worthwhile rewards on the calendar. Give people a reason to login. The calendar rewards are so terrible I don't even bother to open and claim them anymore.

    you know why they use discord more than the forums because when a lot of player type stuff on discord it gets lost unless you scroll tru all the post or search to eme discord is more convenient. Which poor then again you will quicker get a response on discord these days than on the forums from eme. All the response on the forums are from the counsel mods. where is our new product manager one post and is all silence from him now. The truth is the end is near guy repent and be baptized into a new MMO LOL.

    So tired of these constant "Game is dying" threads. Do you think the more you whine and cry about it, the faster you will make it so? I see the same people commenting the same complaints over and over again. Don't you guys just ever get tired of repeating yourselves? I guess not, so go make another page long post listing everything you dislike about the game. Surely, we haven't seen it before. -rolls eyes-

    Global is busier and steady now, events are getting better and plenty of new players are joining the game on a daily basis. You ridicule players that want things you think are too easy, yet fill the forum with groans and moans over a new gear system, because it means more work for you. No one said y'all have to max gear again. You do it, because you want to do it. Well then, stop crying about it.

    "Oh, this event is too hard." Well, then don't do it. "This event doesn't let me overspam it and dump loads of stuff on the broker." Again, don't do it. Seriously, there is plenty of things to do in the game if you don't want to do this event or that event.

    "Lets merge into one server." You're just saying that to troll. Why would they merge into one server again when the game is getting better? You may sit there whining and crying, but people are actually enjoying the game and coming back to it.

    "Xingcode ruined the game forever!" Really? A huge chunk of players stayed. Those that left are coming back here and there. Just because you comment something, doesn't make it true. Every day in global, we have players returning and new players asking questions. Sure, some don't stay, but many do.

    "AIR is going to ruin Tera." Actually, depending on how BHS advertises it, AIR could potentially bring more players to Tera. If EME gets to publish the game in NA, more people will be downloading the launcher and will see Tera advertised as well. AIR will no doubt be graphic intensive or simply may not suit some players. Tera might end up with quite a few players defecting from AIR, so no, I don't think it's the end of the world for Tera. Y'all act like the gamer world is small and Tera has just outrun it's life. I'd agree if the devs weren't still updating it like they are. I hear so much bs about KTera going downhill and ending any day now. However, if BHS wasn't making bank on the game, they wouldn't still be putting in as much work into the game as they do. If you think Tera is failing, then go play something else. You don't need to constantly whine, gripe and trash the game in hopes that you will somehow bring about the final demise of the game faster.

    Game is getting better you say? Not according to the steam analysis. lol. You must be going by stats from 4 years ago then.

    Oh my.
    If people stopped complaining, how would you complain about people complaining?
    Or whine and cry, as you like to say.

    Steam charts might not be the whole picture, but the numbers are significant enough to establish a trend. Steam's playerbase is at an all-time low, and whether anyone likes it or not, odds are this is an accurate representation of the playerbase as a whole.
