If you have to wait for a spawn or there is too many people to get your quest objectives, then try switching to another channel.  I usually play in channel 4 or 8 depending.  I've noticed there are others that consistently play in some channels as well.

Lots of people on Celestial Hills US, but it's not too crowded either.

I think a mind wipe so people could play an mmo like it was their first time again, would be easier to build than a new mmo people here would actually like. - DamonVile

I just started on Valley of Titans, one of the new servers and am finding myself surrounded by excited, bouncing, oft offensive yet well meaning newblets.  So far I'm having a lot of fun, soaking up the beautiful sights and wondering why I didn't start earlier.  Take advantage of the newly F2P TERA, I doubt you'll regret it, honest. 

If you're in a funk while waiting for several of the hopefully blockbuster MMOs later this year, this will no doubt keep you busy if not provide you with what you were looking for from the get go.

Actually I've met my fair share of friendly players who are eager to help.  After three days of playing now my friends list is bursting at the seams.  However whenever there is such an influx of players you will get your crazies too.  Everyone seems to flock to each other though and make the experience what they want in the end.  For God's sake while you're on the noobie isle if you're a girl please don't mention it unless you want to get an STD from text.  Other than that you won't have any lack of good people to poot around with.

celestial hills had 3 channels for poporia last evening and it's not even the best place to level at that level :]

Been playing TERA for a few months before the F2P switch, and i was enjoying it.  I recently quit a few days after the switch due to the massive lag, unplayability and immense amount of noobs flowing into the game just ruined it for me.  I really don't recommend it, but its worth a shot.  Oh, and unless you have a super computer, don't expect to get any surmountable amount of FPS/performance out of this game, for it is poorly, if at all optimized and doesn't run smooth even on decent machines less than 2 years old like mine.

http://www.gametrics.com/news/News02_View.aspx?seqid=8139 (Dec 3rd week)

Out the chart, last game with 58,808 players.

http://www.gametrics.com/news/News02_View.aspx?seqid=8177 (Feb 2nd week)

13th with 103,502 players (peak)

http://www.gametrics.com/news/News02_View.aspx?seqid=8178 (Feb 3rd week)

13th with 91,375 players. 11.72% down

Looks like F2P rush lasted barely 2 months in S. Korea.

I have to wonder what TERA has done to you... you always come back, only 38 posts, all about TERA and they are just little jabs over the last 7 months or so.

 

That being said... they are releasing a large content expansion March 6th so we'll see what changes.

 

 

Other things you failed to mention... every single game on that list seems to have suffered a large drop and Archeage is already at half the playerbase it started with after only a month.

 

Those are both bigger news to me than TERA dropping a little alongside everything else.

I ran the gambit of F2P conversions this weekend.  Fired up TSW, TOR, and TERA for the first time each sine they were P2P.  

I spent the most time in TOR and TERA, and of the two, I like TERA's F2P conversion much better.  Seems more integrated into the game rather than stapled on via UI scripting aferwards, not to mention they went out of their way to take care of those of use who pre-ordered and paid for the game upon release.  

That said, yes, the game is alive and kicking!  I actually had to start a new character becasue playing my warrior was actually a bit too clunky to start off with (I'd forgotten so much), and the starting areas were nice and crowded (as was the mid 40 levelling zone my warrior was in)..  

I've heard some complaints about the in game chat being rather rude/inappropriate.  I didn't really see that.  I think people are just to damn sensitive to everything nowadays.  Heck, even posting stern opinions on this forum will give you a warning.  So take all that pussy-whipped namby pamby stuff with a grain of salt.

It's nice playing an F2P game that doesn't practically prompt you for your credit card number every other keystroke.

The chat is pretty terable but....it's global chat. I've never played an mmo that I left global chat on....so....why are ppl complaining about it here ?

People are like cats. When they die, you get a new one.

Freeloading mooches are the scourge of the gaming community.

 That says a lot about where the MMO business model is going...

 

The fact that on launch, which was advertised a lot more than this F2P it was less popular than now when it goes F2P pretty much indicates the sub-model is dying. It will become niche, rather than the standard like it used to be.

Nahh just goes to show that the MMO  community is now filled with freeloading mooches. I have noticed that the comminity while active has gotten a lot worse overall.

MMORPGs are no longer about the mass multi-user anymore *sadly*

Playing since last weekend (founders account) on the old PvP server, and I see ppl everywhere. It's even so crowded that the Vanarch of Lumbertown has decided to disable PvP in his region because lots of ppl were complaining about lvl 60 gankers. Looks like those noob PvPers found fresh blood and a match they actually CAN win :D

Tera will always have a niche community of Pedophiles and tryhards. It just caters to those groups so well.

Yeah this game has taken off a lot. Most people felt the questing in this game was lack luster but loved the combat, I think its one of the biggest games I've seen where people went "I'm waiting for F2P" and it semes that enthusiasm hasn't at all dimmed and its really packing up the game. Its not perfect but what they did do well (combat) they did amazing to the point you can easily consider it one of the best systems out there.

well.. i dont like Tera´s combat, i played aææ classes till 10 and it sucks...

 

now, i recently tried it again, and all the combat still sucks, i get my ass kicked in pvp im lvl 22, until yesterday.æ.

 

i played an instance, got a feeling of the game, and even kicked  a playerkiller arse, (2 ppl kumped me) ofc i died, but i killed 1.

this was pretty fun, tooday, im lvl 27 and im going to kick the ass of every pk enenemy fuck out there! and im gonna have fun while doing, because ppl will know me that way, and vote for me to rule their counrty!.....now this is pretty cool! :))

ignore my retyard spelling.

 

oh, pls ignore this very bad spelling, im tired, and what not, but i protected a few newbs, helped a dude killl  big ass monster,

and i killed a pk, (player klller) all in all, it was acutally quite fun and fifferent from what im used to.

after eq1, 7 years of wow, warhammer, rift, gw2, eve and swtor, i decided to give a chance to tera (as free).

i can say i dont like quests, but i dont like them in general, in any mmo. i got sick of them (even if it is events or what ever).

so besides that i find tera excellent.

combat is very nice and different. graphics rocks. world is cool and feels alive. pvp is nice too. world bosses are well designed and dungeons are fine. crafting is at least ok. UI is complete and modern.

i dont find many negatives in the game. if you add that imo its the best F2P model (comparing to swtor, aion, conan etc) then you have a winner. at least for me its an easy choice between F2P tera and the rest subed mmo's and i think thats why they already added 4 more servers and all of them are full almost any time of the day

Between Euro and US the game has about 18 Servers with most of them on high at all times.
