I challenge anyone here to provide one metric that Neverwinter does better than TERA.

I tried the beta this weekend and thought it was terrible in every aspect.  So terrible that for a fleeting moment I wanted to quit video games forever.  I'm not a TERA fanboi either... I just can't see any reason to play Neverwinter over it.

oh and trickster rogues

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

I like the art direction a whole hell of a lot more than Tera. 

I didn't play a lot of Tera because it bored me pretty quickly (I like NW combat better than Tera but that's largely a matter of taste), but the Qeue system for dungeon delves and zone events is pretty handy in NW. Does Tera have zone events or a decent group finder? I never bothered to LFG. 

Tera probably has better ERP but I'm expecting better general roleplay from NW. 

And, the Foundry of course. 

Not to mention, there's a lot about NW that hasn't even been released yet - crafting, for instance, and end-game content, which, aside from being supplemented by UGC, can't be as boring as Tera's, from what I hear. 

But if you just want to talk about how much better Tera is - which is clearly your intention, despite "not being a fanboi" - shouldn't you be on the Tera forums instead of the NW forums? Or are you just here to bash NW?

Two different types of games.  They don't feel or play the same at all to me.  If you're referring to combat, I do like Tera combat more, but I still like the Neverwinter combat.  Why does one game have to be better than another to be worth playing?  I play tons of games.  Just take each for what they are and if they're fun play them.

My favorite combat systems right now are:

1. GW2, Tera, TSW

2. STO, Neverwinter, RaiderZ

3. LotRO, EQ2, Rift

Since most games are mostly about combat so I play the games on list 1 most.  The exception is STO sort of.  With the DOffs I can do missions for days on end and not do combat.
