Pivotelite writes: It's funny what F2P does, since the announcement TERAs in-game population has probably doubled and old guilds are already reforming. It's quite odd, wonder how it will be when F2P actually goes live. Fri Jan 11 2013 4:09PM Report

In the trailer they said they wont limit the action bars or make you pay to enter existing dungeons taking a shot at SWTOR and Aions F2P models.


They werent stating they would do that.

Seriously Rthuth?! Get a life... thats all I can say.


No, there isn't action bar unlocking in TERA Rising. Girl, when you aren't sure about something, its better to just not mention it. Friendly tip there.

Have a good day. :)

O lord.  Pokket, please, reedit all those action bar lock mentions in that thing.   It was like a joke poke about what sort of stuff they WONT be doing.

You could say "Founder" = what a current subscription is now. After the transition and after all retail copies are sold out it's just Elite and Standard.  Both have access to everything, Elite simply has perks over what a current subscription would have. 

For example, at endgame the number of dailies doable is locked at 10.  After transition Elites will have 20 while Standard remain 10 as it currently is.

And, yea . . . the action bar thing . . . they won't be taking them out.

I picked up TSW from GMG for like 6 bucks after the B2P announcement.  I love the setting, but I still am not in love with the combat.  I can see myself popping in from time to time when I get bored of other games I am playing. 

As for the after Gameface discussion,  you'd have to have a very high quality game with a smooth release and them pumping out content as fast as Trion does with Rift in order to sustain itself and not go F2P after a short while like every other game we've seen come out in the past couple of years.

I was interested in TERA from what they showed of it, but there were things putting me off subbing. With those on the way out, and times changing for that game, I'm enthusiastic about hopping in and giving it a look first-hand. :) I like the fact that while it's a fantasy setting, it's not carrying itself on regularly seen western established genre tropes.

A brief comment on the video. Is it prepared in a hurry? Just because the multiple editing cuts, at times even within sentences, makes it less easy to watch. Also, it would be nice for info to be doublechecked for accuracy before repeating it. This is the first of this series that I've seen.

Tera - ugh, what I hate about the combat is how much work you have to do to bring down one BAM... it's not hard, it's not challengint, it's tedius. Yes I can do it but 2min to kill one  thing after 300 keyboard presses... it gets old.

Neverwinter - just looks so old to me, I'm so ready to move away from sword/fantasy stuff at this point, and I watched the videos and it's not exciting to me. Feels just like I've seen this 1000 times before.

What will it take for a game to not be F2P/item shop... easy the game must not be WoW. Seriously, no new game can survive as a sub period, and the only one that can is WoW, not because it's good or worth it, because people are willing to pay for it. Other games just don't have the clout that WoW has nor the rabit fanbase that is willing to throw money at Blizzard.

I think it's painfully obvious that the time of sub games has passed - I expect all except WoW to go F2P in 2013. WoW will forever remain the exception.

First time I've watched a Pokket video.  She reminds of what you'd get if you were to divide Morgan Webb by Felicia Day.

Anyway, I think TSW's poor numbers and beginning are largely to blame on their past failures.  If they had never, ever released Age of Conan for instance(due to what a disaster it was), I'd bet they would have drawn in alot more people.  

It's sort of a shame because it's a cool setting/plotline, and it's the kind of setting FunCom is built for.  The TLJ series was amazing, after all.

All that said, I never even touched the game because I made the mistake of buying AoC and wanting nothing to do with them after that.

Interesting last point Pokket. I would still buy and play a subscription based game, but old dudes don't seem to drive sales much. The younger crowd has less and less experience with subscription games, it's more of an anomaly to them.

So I think f2p is probably the future, but it's not a future I am looking forward to. Seems like quality, depth, and the community all suffer with f2p titles.

Sorry for the off, but you look so much like Jeanette in Masquerade Bloodlines with this hair... :)

I think I'll reinstall and play it over again with a malkav this time. It's better than Tera anyways. (just for saying something ontopic too :) )

<span com_body"="">The dailies in the game will not work and can not work like they do in the PnP version. They will be abilities that you charge up and use. Then you charge them up again.

My opinion is, if a lot of people are getting the wrong idea, then the information didn't come across clearly. If you're going to take a jab at another video game, it needs to be clear and concise or it can be mistaken, But reading the comments, of course now I know... AND, like I said in the video, I saw nothing about it on the site, so assumed it wasn't put in.

" … so our philosophy from the beginning of this change was to add to what we already offered, instead of restricting what we already have. So for example: we've added vanity items, and convenience boosts to a new in-game store, instead of charging for existing dungeons or taking away your hot-bars . . ."


What part of that was not clear or could be misconstrued?  If some people are getting the wrong idea, it was BECAUSE of your video.  And we'd like to think that we can rely on the enthusiast press to check crucial facts like action bars when making these types of presentations.

I'm sorry, really, at no point was that anywhere near not being clear.

Tera in and of itself is a bad game with action combat in an oversized world...

Tera with elite status players creating a player class structure is worse.

The idea that you should place one customer over another is insane in any other business why is it MMO game makers dont get it even though there is not a SINGLE freemium game on the market that does as well as true F2P games? I swear this industry is filled with idiots disconnected from reality.
