though this game's general chat does have a specific keyword that no other game has to activate troll superpowers...

just say 'ELIN' in general, lol.

 

once again, to judge a game by it's general chat is silly, but yeah, the word Elin always is good for chuckles.

 I agree, I don't know why people do this, you've got a chat channel that thousands of people can use, guess which ones are going to use it the most? Oh that's right, the trolls.

 

Either put on your thick skin and take part in the nonsense or turn it off. Thats the beauty of it.

TERA looks like a cheap anime, so it's no wonder it attracts the "lol hentai" crowd. I find them a bit amusing in the "well, at least my sense of humor isn't this bad" way.

Well, TBH that's WAAAY better than the 'anal' thing that was sweeping WoW a while back.

Oh, don't worry, the "anal" thing made a comeback in TERA. Apparently linking items and writing "anal" before them is the funniest thing ever.

I agree , of all the mmos I have played, I found Tera to be the worse.

 

TSW when i did play , had a great community on the most part people were friendly and helpful

 

and most games I have played , there is a few idiots, but in general I found as far as mmos go, the chat was fairly reasonable.

 

But Tera , was in a total different league for idiots.

You haven't played much mmos or most of mmos you play doesn't have a server wide chat. If you turn off global and just have Area than ya its fine like most game. but any game with a server wide chat will be spammed with just a few idiots buts its server wide so you see it all the time where in other games they can only infect 1 area at a time.

Not on the RP server, thank goodness. In fact the conversations have been surprisingly civil and intelligent. Earlier today several folks were giving someone advice on how to get started in the video games industry.

I have yet to be compelled to turn off global chat, which is a nice surprise. Let's hope it lasts (probably won't).

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

You must be new to online gaming,  welcome aboard and make sure you wear you're thick skin.

 

 

Publishers have two choices in this matter,  Filter everything and make it a pain for the community or don't filter and let the community block players that abuse chat.

Actually when a game is fun, engaging and fosters community (read: anything not Eastern or F2P) then the chat becomes more socially acceptable.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

Global chat might be derpy at times but I don't see anything wrong with the community.

Fairly good players and fun to play with on a PvE server (EU).

 

I come from LoL so the community feels like a blessing compared to that.

The German Pve Server is full with friendly and helpfull people. I played on a pvp server half a year ago bevore i quit and it was horrible there.

Started the game a week ago again and the community on my new pve server is mutch nicer, maybe its somehow worse on pvp servers dunno.

If you can't kill it, don't make it mad.

If you notice, its usually the same nit wits, almost all the time.  As was mentioned, just ignore them.  The over all community (such as it is) isn't much different from most other games in that regard.

Hi 

As a long time TERA global chat user I've noticed 2 things the people QQing about the chat are the ones using that as an excuse for quitting the game when it's really they're just so used to the tab sytem therefore they fail. 

And 99% of the global chat on tera is just to upset people like everyone who posted on this thread and to make a thread like this on a gaming review site. Anyway TERA is the best MMO I've played and if you're not a little girl who can either handle global chat or filter it out then TERA is the game for you.

Every MMO that isn't WoW invariably has general chats filled with how other MMOs suck.

 

WoWs community seems to be the only one that doesn't care to discuss other games, and thus unaffected.

 

That is my experience from the past few years, at least, mostly in new MMO launch periods (never stay longer due to the shittines of most games).

Big problem for people also seems to be (looking at the new rush of players) that they simply suck in Tera.

You really need to drop the attitude "I've played WoW for 10 years, I know how to play" and learn the basics from a scratch. Just the other day I taught a "WoW Top 10 PvP player" how to avoid a bam's attack patterns ;P

It's essentially 4Chan The MMO - which given it's size means there are enough pedos to keep it afloat.

Ah Global chat on Tempest Reach... Sometimes very entertaining indeed. Alienware, Elin movies/games, weird fetish talk, it's all there. Can't handle it? You can always turn it off in chat options. Personally I find it entertaining while waiting for a dungeon or while taking a break from questing. Never take Global seriously, people are just relaxing. ;)

Cheers.

Yes.  All things considered I find it quite entertaining.  Especially the combat system.  The rest is pretty much standard MMO. Very nice graphics and good eye candy.
