En Masse says that TERA is ‘the most played MMORPG on Steam’

Steam and TERA are a match made in F2P heavenapparently. The latest En Masse press release heralds the action fantasy title as “the most played MMORPG on Steam.” The firm is basing its statement on all-time peak concurrency numbers, which it says are available via Steam Charts. Since its May 5th launch on Valve’s ubiquitous PC storefront, TERA has enjoyed “explosive growth” including over 4.5 million registered accounts in North America and over 20 million worldwide. Those players haven’t been lollygagging about, either, as an average of six million BAMs die every day alongside 70,000 daily dungeon clears.

In other TERA news, a translation of a talk given by former Bluehole Studios producer Kim Nak Heong has surfaced on the official TERA forums. Kim says his studio didn’t expect the Elin race to be popular, that it was a “filler” race and a female version of the Popori. By the time the Japanese market requested swimsuits for the Elin, the American market had eclipsed it, but “the profit [Bluehole] made from this costume alone exceeded all the profit [Bluehole] made from all the swimming costumes for all races in Korea. […] They say school swimming suits, bloomers, and maid outfits are the 3 wonders in Japan. Maid costume was especially a big hit.” In fact, the Elin costumes made the free-to-play transition financially feasible. Kim also notes that TERA has performed best in North America.

We’ve got an infographic on the game below.

bearmans  Same here, which is even more surprising considering I am a completely f2p player; have not spent a dime, and yet my experiences with their CS has been better than many games that I have spent money in.

Armsbend Belcross Not really. While I agree people do what people do, I don’t have to invite it in.

And just to be clear, I am in no way trashing Japan. Japan is an awesome country and Japanese people are great people to meet.
But they have some wierd tastes. Much like my ancestral homeland of Germany,

Don’t worry about it, TERA, chances are you’ll drop below Path of Exiles soon enough. (Chances are you’ll stay above Neverwinter though.)

DJjazzy Greaterdivinity Ironwu when you attack, you must commit to the attack otherwise theres no strategy to your attacks or else you’ll get something like GW2 where you’re just running around spamming attacks.

Besides at higher level in there, the lock goes away or is very little

Greaterdivinity DJjazzy I love animation locks. Makes the combat have more “weight.” I tried GW2 and it had decent combat, but it felt floaty because there was a lack of animation locks.
