OP  12/27/12 11:19:27 AM#1

NHN, the publisher of the Japanese & Korean versions of TERA, has announced that all servers will be converting to a free to play version in early 2013. Korean TERA servers will see F2P action on January 10th, with Japanese servers heading that way in mid-February.

There is no word from either En Masse Entertainment (NA version) or Gameforge (EU) about whether or not they will follow suit.

The F2P conversion is coming with some huge changes ... TERA was always missing meaningful PvP, Sieges and raids... well, all that seems to be coming.

Anyways about the F2P, EME always seemed reasonable and if they decide to go F2P I am confident it won't be P2W and too restricted, even Korea which is known for P2W didn't make the F2P model too restricted, it made it so you could only make 3-4 characters per server, it doubled dungeon cooldown and made less bank space. All people who had purchased the game or previously subscribed get veteran perks and have none of these restrictions.

Enmasse NA/EU, take notes from Korea / Japan.

My endgame begins with character creation and ends with a new mmorpg

Gameforge/Frogster(EU publishers)...well... I could see them butchering the game to death, more so than they already have.

The NA/EU versions will follow suit a few months afterwards. They will not be significantly different than the KR version, but will have the benefit of time to avoid some of the initial mistakes made in KR.

EU - Gameforge are making an anouncement in Jan - quote below  from a Gameforge Community Manager (Tiala) taken from Tera eu website:

 

"Hello everyone,

yes, the Korean version of TERA is going f2p which is the next big step for them. Please understand that it is too early right now to talk about this but we will have more information for you about the EU version in January.

Regards,
Tiala"

I hope NA tera goes f2p soon. I really liked the game but didn't want to put in the time to make a sub worth while. I'd play again and have no problems spending a bit on money on it when I do play if it went f2p.

So many server do they have left in Korea/Japan? Any mergers announced? All I know is they went below 2% share in the Korean (M)MORPG market, but right now I cant find the serverlist on the Korean site. Thats below multiple complete no-name grinder title.

 From my experience I saw more people arguing it will go F2P and that it's already flopping in Korea. You must have been on some other forum.

 Eh, TERA is still in the top 6 most played MMOs from the Korean sites i've recently browsed. 18th game overall last week for players.

 

But both Japan and Koreas F2P test servers were so successful they couldnt help but pursue the model to its fullest extent.

I guess it is a question of time before it goes F2P in the West aswell. Pity but not entirely unexpected.

 Nothing wrong with that, i'm looking forward to the impressive content beind added alongside F2P conversions.

 

Besides, TERA outlasted TSW and SW:TOR and overall seeing all these MMOs flop is more sad than funny IMO.

People said the game did not have enough content for P2P and should be F2P.

Game going F2P and content added.

Bit ironic really.

  Really odd indeed... but BHS was never good at making quality decisions.

I tried so hard and got so far, but in the end it doesn't even matter.

12/27/12 5:35:09 PM#18

Finally, it's starting.

Was waiting until this game went F2P before I played it.  Beta wasn't a good experience; was never going to pay for it in the first place due to that.

Shame I have to deal with my alias being used by somebody else.  Quit SWTOR after they server merged for that reason; they didn't even bother to send out any e-mails about it.

TERA barely makes it last place of of the 10 most played Korean MMOs with large gap to top 3 and that doesnt even include action MOGs and it popped out of the top 20 online games already months ago... thats after that super successfull F2P test... when was that "recently"? A year ago? It allready on par with overhyped superflop Star Craft 2.

I was asking for their servernumbers and existing schedules, not some made up offworld stuff you would love to believe.

Edit: That SC2 point has given me some clue though, it must have barely above SC2's 0.5% online gaming marketshare. The last place in the top 10 Korean MMORPG has 0.75 marketshare and Tera has just been kicked out of that due to a no-name title beta launch.

TERA just dropped to 20 from 18 last week, well see where it ends up after F2P goes live January 10th. I said test servers for a reason, KTERA launched one server with moderate restrictions and capped at level 58, the server is usually mid/high population so it has spurred them to go full force F2P.
