WOW.... im not saying that tera isnt good, cause it is and like to play it for now but....

9/10? 10/10? NO WAY tera have lots of down sides not only the lack of a battleground....

If TERA was a game worth of 10/10 why would it fail in Korea???

People already explained why it flopped there in another thread.  It wasn't complete at release.

Besides obviously the east and west have different tastes.  Just because something did poorly over there doesn't mean it will here.

I agree with u on this.

I just think that a game with so many down sides does not deserve a perfect 10 or something close to it.

and again i enjoy playing tera and i am currently paying it at least for now

Well, I'm not sure what down sides you're talking about.  The things the guy in this thread listed are fairly minor if you ask me, although I do agree that there should be more organized pvp.  I too would love to see raids on guild houses but I don't think we'll see that for awhile.  Battlegrounds are coming at some point.

I'm just not sure what it would take to get a 9 or 10 out of 10 from critics (besides fans like me).  WoW constantly gets them handed to them but they haven't improved the genre for a long time.  This game has everything WoW has (minus battlegrounds, raids and Arena), but it's way more fun to play and it looks tons better.  

I think that if the quests from tera werent all so linear like kill X of Y or delivery this to that NPC, i think it would make its score rise up significantly.

Yeah, but every mmo is like that.  So it's hard for me to say that's a negative.  It's pretty much par for the course.  However, the action combat makes those quests way more bareable to the point of actually being fun.

I guess everyone thinks questing is a thing of the past because of GW2, but it remains to be seen if the "triggering event" idea works, and the game doesn't have a release date, so it will be a long time until we see if it works or not.  I'm skeptical because I played Warhammer and the idea is a lot like the PQ system, which worked if there was a lot of people around and didn't work otherwise.  Questing is a proven way that works for MMOs, and I think the variety in the quests in TERA are as good if not better than most.

Besides, you can always just solo BAMs, or do groups for BAMs for xp if you really didn't want to quest.  Or just run dungeons often.

This comes up a lot on this site about TERA.  I don't remember other games getting bashed as much for having quests that basically go tell you to kill x of whatever (which is basically every MMO).

GW2 have an interestnig way for players to do quests and interect with the world if tera had that it would be amazing !

Might be a little bit early for a review... Hopefully other reviews will be giving it good scores and the word gets spread that this is actually a fun game.

The end result is going to be the same.  It will score well like every other MMO, but it will have little to no bearing on its success or failure.  Seriously, what MMO has scored badly with the critics on Meta?  Even the failed ones got good scores..

Look at the user reviews though, both on this site and on metacritic they are very good, nobody cares about the critics anyways, the probably get payed by every MMO company out there.

 

So at least the user reviews say good things about the game, I just hope people can keep themselves amused until battlegrounds late summer. :)

yea and look at the crappy user reviews for SWTOR yet somehow it manages to have 1.3 milliion subs( still beleive number is WAY lower right now)  or better yet look at the user reviews for Cataclysm how many subs wow still have? either way like people said before early reviews for these types of games are usually overly positive until people start reaching endgame and making alts then realise theres really no substance ot the game.

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

Your point? SWTOR and WOW are both popular I mean even if Blizzard shits on every WOW player in this world, they would still want more. Users and Critics Agree on the score but you say that "NOOO you all are wrong and I am right, this game FAILS" Ok bro I didnt know we have a Gypse here. Are you just mad Because this game is actually getting attention? Oh and btw I have reached End game so your point is? I am having a blast and not 1 game comes close. So how about you tell me how I Should Enjoy my time and Just how My enjoyment of TERA is all part of my Imagination.

Anyways I think TERA deserves the score but remember that Nexuses and Politicals are not fully out yet (will be out in a week) and its already getting this much score.

 Oh believe me, there's plenty of downsides to this game, more than positives. It's far from a perfect 10. Still too early for reviews, I doubt the critics even got to 60 to experience endgame content.

Remember... all I'm offering is the truth. Nothing more.

"If it's so great why would it fail in Korea, etc"

1) This is not Korea. This is NA/EU TERA. What flies in Korea might not fly here, what "flops" in Korea might not "flop" here. It's been argued the game is not "grindy" enough for Asian tastes but we all know how Westerners feel about grinds.

2) Flop in Korea? If a business is operating, providing revenue and turning a profit, no matter how small, it's still a successful business.

MMO forum keyboard commandoes seem to believe that if a game doesn't have millions of subs or is number 1 then it's a flop. It's like saying if a small business does not launch to be the Walmart empire within it's first month then it's a failure. Ludicrous.

I agree with the snippet from the guy from GamingXP:

TERA may not offer enough to dethrone World of Warcraft, but it is a wonderful game with a thrilling story and loads of action. Above all else the combat mechanics are a great innovation

is the 9/10 for the game or is it a fanboi meter? 10 being massive fanboi and 1 being hater?

i would give it a 6.5/10 it does nothing that lineage 2 didn't do 8 years ago..all it has going for it is the combat system which  i found rather clunky. at least lineage 2  launched with pvp content.

Hmm I find it hard to take your opinion seriously when you are lying :(. There was no PVP content in L2 at release I was there the minute servers went live so I do know. Castles were just sealed off geometry until they unlocked them, there were no arenas and no olympiad, I am not even sure you could declare a war to another guild.

On Gustin main PVP was for dominance of hunting areas ( completely unrelated to any game mechanic ) for Cruma Tower control ( a dungeon ) and Dragon Valley control between the 2 main alliances created on the server.

Also it being Lineage 2 is more than 50% of the reason why I want to play this game, this was going to be Lineage 3, everywhere you look in this game and if you ever played any of the Lineage series, it screams Lineage 2. I am ok with it being an updated Lineage 2, tbh that is what I have been searching for a while, after playing 6 years of PVE raiding, some proper political meta gaming and open world pvp.

I never understood this mentality really. As long as the server I actually play on is populated, I couldn't really care less how many people overall play the game. World of Warcraft has something to the tune of 10 million subscriptions still, but 95% of what those players do when they're in the game can barely be described as playing it. Even of those, less than 5% are doing what could be considered competent or competitive gameplay.

What are you trying to say? Does a game have to be new to be good? I never heard that Bs before or is it because GW2 said so? TERA offers everything MMOs were and reinforce it by imporving these points. You don't like it? Its clear that Shit load of us do and these reviews by the users + critics says so. Get off your high horses and at least back your statements up without lying outa your own asses so maybe we can actually listen and properly respond.

By 9pm most people playing this game are sent to bed ...being competent means you can play till 10?
