NEVER, downplay the combat in this game. TERA is ALL ABOUT COMBAT. Not quests, Not relationships w/ other nerds, and Defnly NOT for MMO newbs. Tera's combat is completely twitch based while being a complete open-world MMORPG(unlike Vindictus and other twitch-based-but-instanced MMOs). In short, Tera's combat system is a technical achievement that harbors jealousy from other MMO devs and players. This is my personal MMORPG dream come true. Again, NEVER downplay the combat. Cuz that's what this game is all about.
People always complain that an MMO is to hard, GET LOST. Oh what about us causal gamers? I got 2 jobs and only play when I have time and love the challenge. In fact if a game is to easy I would end up sleeping while playing it. So please for all those whiny babies about MMOS being to hard GET LOST go play wow you guys already brought it to its knees finish it off.
Have to agree with a few folk on here; it looks great for a F2P game, so we'll just wait until it is.
That all female armour appears to be just ludicrously revealing and then there's that whole... little girl race sort of skeeves me out.
I like the premise and why not ... looks good, plays different and i think it's a lot of fun. We can't expect every game to be a giant leap forward in it's genre. This game takes a step or two forward and it looks fun. I think i'll give it a try.
Nothing new, kill x of y until max level then raid. Anyone with an ounce of dignity wouldn't take a game that officially calls boss mobs "big ass monsters" seriously. The lame ultra giant silly weapons are reason enough to scoff at this clone, but the naked anime chicks in "armor" that consists of a strip over each nipple is more reason to laugh. Then they drop the biggest joke. They want you to pay a sub to grind through this joke clone. I'm sure it will do real well.
@Barrakas21 Phantasy Star Online 2 is better in my opinion. The art styles are very different of course, but the combat, looting, and customization is better in PSO2.
Tera graphics,combat, gameplay story is good hope they won't fail and improve more and manny players will drop in :)
