TERA is adding a new PvE server on June 9

En Masse is adding a new server to TERA! The firm says that the Steam launch and the introduction of the new Gunner class have been a huge success, so much so that the population cap on the game’s PvE servers has been raised to 120 percent over the past month.

The new Highwatch PvE shard will open on June 9th and will enable players to avoid peak time server queues.

SoMuchMass ihatevnecks Barrens chat was barrens chat just to keep up the barrens chat reputation, but it was usually just stupid people or aggressive people.
Global and the first few areas in this game, at least on Celestial Hills, are nonstop rape/pedophilia aggression. I can only assume the Report function does jack shit, given these people all have to be 20+ to even be chatting in global.

ihatevnecks It is basically like Barrens chat 24/7, the reason Barrens chat was Barrens chat is because there was a lot of talking going on in that zone, compared to the rest.  The more chat and community interaction the more likelyhood someone says something you don’t like.  
You might be used to games where people say nothing, in many games there is literally no chat activity.  Maybe 3-4 lines every 10 minutes so less chance of trolling.I noticed people that say “nice community’ are communities that rarely talk, because those communities actually don’t exist, because of their small size.

After this article I decided to hop back on and play some today. Had way more money and items in my warehouse, I seriously don’t know where all of that came from, but whatever.
Man, this is bar-none the worst (F2P) community I have ever seen. Global chat in this game makes Neverwinter and STO look downright classy.

Caerulei I thought it was just starting zones, but I am in the level 62-63 zones and I am in channel 3 because channel 1 and 2 are high.  And it isn’t fake high either, there are tons of people there.  Wonder how long this lasts, very surprising.

“I didn’t mention GW2 because the game feels completely empty and abandoned.  There is literally no chat activity anywhere”
…just small come late programming notice: SMM has been claiming this since the game’s release. At best it’s anecdotal. But either way, it’s just time here to tune out and move on as you are not going to get anywhere with it.

I love Tera’s combat, but didn’t care as much for other aspects of the game.  Wish other games would adopt a similar combat system.

phatleet Dystopiq DJjazzy SoMuchMass Yeah sorry, but SMM’s troll-like behavior was quite blatant there, and Dystopiq is completely on point about it.

Damonvile DJjazzy Dystopiq SoMuchMass Like DJjazzy said, most people don’t go to every single article on this site just to spite a game they like, as you see SMM do with GW2. He was GoldenGirl before GoldenGirl was a thing, except more idiotic and less spiteful.

So… hearing this news, I went in to Tera to give it another chance.  And holy cow!  There are players everywhere!
Also, I figured out why I didn’t particularly like it.  The glow effect over the area.  After disabling the glow, I ended up binge playing the game for tree hours, and got from level 14 to 19.  Experience from quests and kills has been increased quite a lot!

Rohirrim I feel that the En Masse approach is significant in contributing to the game’s success.  They definitely aren’t perfect, but their overall strategy has proven itself.

I don’t think I’d play Tera either under Gameforge where it sounds like you need to pay to breathe, or even KTera with it’s much more annoying enchanting system and forced PvP.

A_Dad Supreme SoMuchMass Sythalin phatleet Someone didn’t know that Yoshi P was Yoshida the man responsible for remaking FFXIV as a decent game.  Oh wait.  It is BlackArmsBimbo.  Now I believe it.

” But server numbers don’t mean much.”
“If you don’t believe me, just log into Tera at the starting zones or the capital city”

I can’t believe the same person that said the first line also said the second, and was serious both times.
Oh wait. It’s LotsofSize, lol.
Now I believe it.

BalsBigBrother Yeah I leave the chat on for a little bit, kinda like a petri-dish experiment, then turn it off to game in peace.  I don’t play Tera much but for me it’s a great F2P “dip your toes in occasionally” kind of game.

Don’t jump over me for this, but…it would be awesome if Tera could be ported to the consoles :) The action combat easily fits the console controller.
On topic now, I would play Tera still if it wasn’t on Gameforge.. and the American servers have lot of lag for me that I am based in Europe :(. If En Masse have success why not buying back the Tera rights from Gameforge and open Europian servers..now that would be breaking news :)

Made me buy a founders pack when it launched, however I’m guilty to admit that I haven’t touched it since stopping at level 32 berserker. Witcher 3 got the better of me and I even gave the dragon mount event a miss. Sigh..

yolosw3g Dystopiq DJjazzy SoMuchMass I played TERA for a good while. I can be critical of it. Just like how I’m critical of GW2 and other games I play. TERA sadly does nothing new besides combat. Let’s not pretend it reinvented MMO’s. Combat and fanservice are what it does best. The rest is just generic.

I guess all this game really needed was some advertisement and attention to really take off. Thank you steam.

It’s surprising how good of an advertisement going on steam is. The game was free already.

Dystopiq Armsbend TERA was released first in 2011 and then in NA in 2012. For an MMO it’s old enough.

groo the wanderer Too many people look at TERA and find things to criticize because they’re trying to take it too seriously. People who enjoy it see police car mounts and start laughing so much they need to have one, or they see cute characters and outfits that just make them smile. It’s nice to see someone that gets it lol. It’s very pretty yes, but it’s charm is that it’s not meant to be taken seriously.

Sythalin phatleet TERA’s servers can handle more than a lot of games, especially when you consider the fact that nearly every zone has several instances. Even the main max level city. A game without a channel system will be handling far less players than TERA does.

Bannex19 They released a new class last year that didn’t need a new server. However they did introduce two new servers when the game went F2P in 2013. However, those servers are currently full 2 years later. So the fact that they need a new one yet again is quite impressive.

mysecretid BalsBigBrother Yes, you can turn off some or all channels, as desired. And I highly recommend doing so, for area and global, at least, if you don’t want to be subjected to teenagers trying to pimp out their elin characters for in-game cash. (This is on the RP server)

Can you turn the chat off, B3? I’m big on turning general chat off, as most of it follows Sturgeon’s Law (“Ninety percent of everything is crap”) :-)

Breaking out the troll repellant early! Sure fire sign of a troll. Not sure how what anything I wrote intimidated you I was just pointing out that your allegations were false. I also am confused why you think posting a screen shot is any more informative…

I agree 100% there. Just that most people don’t go on and on about those mmos they don’t play

Damonvile
Guest
Damonvile

DJjazzy Dystopiq SoMuchMass That probably applies to everyone, when it comes to mmos they don’t play. Most people judge mmos based on what they knew about it when they made up their mind and that info and opinion never change, regardless of how much the game does..

SoMuchMass Sythalin phatleet I’m a fan of both Tera and FF14 but I will have to say that FF14 pop is definitely the 2nd largest since you can’t even transfer servers unless you get in during a slow time

Bannex19 I’ve got one…. it’s a 3 year old game that just opened an new server. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out they’re not having an issue keeping people past lvl 20.

Bannex19 Just one more, You seem to be a very violent individual. 

Also posting classes and numbers just don’t make it any more believable =P 

Show me yours and I’ll show you mine XD. Ok I’ll start!

I have a level 52 warrior and a 60 lancer. I stand by my comment in saying that the game doesn’t get significantly more fun after 20.
I played about a week ago. Any other conclusions you’d like to jump to?

phatleet
Guest

Sythalin phatleet Wow, didn’t know that, Just imagine how many more if they went F2P XD

Though critical me might ask how many players per server and so forth but still that’s a lot of servers.

Bannex19 its not grindy anymore AT ALL. as a returning player, the leveling speed is perfect, if not a bit fast.

And then all of those people hit lvl 20 and found out how droll and grindy the game is…
Fantastic combat system tho.

Sythalin as much as i love ffxiv, im pretty sure that lodestone survey showed that the sub numbers are at around 750k. maybe its still more than tera but its by no means a behemoth amount

BalsBigBrother I watched MJ’s stream, and found myself wondering why the gameplay looked so dull for that class. You set a circle, stick a turret in the middle and then pew-pew away, using your bot either as a getaway or a further distraction. The play-style’s completely valid, but it didn’t strike me as very entertaining. In your experience playing the class, do you need to keep enemies at such arm’s length; or is the Gunner just as capable from melee range?

Sythalin phatleet I could see FFXIV having more than Tera, it wouldn’t be hard to believe.  But server numbers don’t mean much.  It is more about active players and server architecture.  Tera’s zones have multiple instances, it isn’t just one.  Go make a new character you might be put on the 3rd copy.  So it isn’t exactly apples to apples.
