I've become dependent upon spell check. My apologies for stupid grammatical errors.

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

Some folks are like Slinkies, totally useless but great fun to watch when pushed down stairs

Wouldn't surprise me, it's a great game, much better than a few I won't mention to be safe.

I know, right. That would put it squarely in the same arena as SWToR, and well ahead of most other games. Not bad, Tera, not bad.

With almost two million active registered players (and counting!) in North America... etc.

registered accounts not active ones. there are f2p games with 50mil, 100mil etc registered acounts. 2mil is not much for a f2p mmo.

btw tera na has only 6 server. how could 2mil active players work fine on only 6 server (tera has the classic server system). just remember when gw2 hit the 2mil sold games they had somethin around 30 (guess even more) server.

That is a problem with the F2P style of games, lack of REAL numbers.

2 Million registered users truly means nothing. You can't derive information from that other than that there have been 2 million accounts created. You don't know how many people are actively playing per day or week. You do not know how many people are paying money. You do not know how many of those registered accounts are created by the same user (ie. multiple free accounts so you can run quests with a group all from the same keyboard).

 You don't even know how many of the accounts are those of gold sellers/botters/other nefarious things where they keep constantly creating new accounts as the others are being tracked/monitored/closed.

Registered users is a pretty useless number.

That sounds a lot more realistic. When I read the article, they said "active players". Two million registered accounts is ok, but not a super big deal and a lot more inline with the impression I had of the game.

Tera is great. And I can clearly see more and more ppl playing with each week. Major cities are full of ppl and there are generally no problems with finding groups for bams or instances. Keep up the good work tera team!

I don't know what the real number of active players are but the serves are far from dead ( like you said ) so it doesn't really matter. The game is improving and they're adding more things to do so it's always worth going back to. It's just too bad it's not a game I can play all the time month after month.

I played for 6 hrs or so yesterday and today.

The server I was on was alive and kicking. People everywhere I went. I can believe it.

This exactly. Especially the part about the servers.

GW2's 30 servers a year after launch are some of the most isolated servers i have seen in all the MMOs i have played so far. And this coming from someone who has played on the "Full" servers at peaktime (Blackgate/Sea of Sorrows). Except for starter areas (sometimes even that for which i resort to guesting to Tarnished Coast), most of the game feels isolated. People will either be in LA or camping dragons. Pretty sure GW2's server limit is quite low. Even SWTOR felt to me as containing more people overall throughout the leveling phase than GW2.

Six active servers? Even if full all the time means no more the about 200k active players, and that's being generous.
