    In TERA I’m gonna choose Sorcerer, because I’m pretty stupid, it said on tera.enmasse gameguide that skill required is 2/5.

    Hey Folks. Good show. I’ve played the Discovery Edition for Tera for a little bit. I think the game is alright. It looks great. Typical quest grind but at this point that’s pretty mute. I find the combat much better than Raiderz but I honestly prefer the combat in C9 for the shear fact its a bit faster paced. I’ve thought about buying the game but I dunno yet. I’m still on the fence.

    As for the fishing game… sure why not. Why do we always have be committing mass genocide against every possible monster race? Why not take out the fish population for once.

  4. KalameesJr on January 21, 2013

    So I did exactly like Magicman suggested and got myself the Tera trial. Played it straight for 3 days. Here are my yays and nays or Tera!

    Yays:
    1) The game looks gorgeous. There is no denying that its a pretty piece of a game.
    2) It’s really well optimized. It runs well on my machine that sometimes even has trouble running WoW.
    3) It’s a perv/pedo dreamland.

    Nays:
    1) By far the most boring quests I have ever encountered in any game. This is coming from somebody who levelled 7 toons to lvl 80 in WoW.
    2) The fabled action combat is not all that impressive. When I got into the game I was hoping for the combat to be something along the lines of DCUO or Vindictus. However in the end all you do in Tera is just hitting 1,2,3 all over again just like in any other hotkey based MMO.
    3) The combat feels clunky at times. I felt it most on my mystic when I always stopped briefly when I tried to cast spells. As somebody who has played frost mage in WoW the moving combat felt incredibly bad.

    Oh well just my thoughts on Tera after trying it, anybody interested in the game take this post with a grain of salt and just go and try it out yourself.

    • Mystika on January 22, 2013

      I guess it really depends on your perspective towards action combat, and what “action” means to you. Everyone seems to have differing opinions on how action based TERA’s combat is….whereas everyone generally agrees that the questing is lacking/mediocre.

    • crise123 on January 22, 2013

      I dont even read the quests πŸ™‚

      I just take them, and do them with 1 or 2 people always, its fast and easy, if you do quests alone, it will take you much more time than grouping up with someone.

      But by action based, they mean you have to Target the monster yourself, you dont get a Tag on it so u could spam like in say, WoW, everytime u use a skill or normal hit u need to aim at your target πŸ™‚

      • Mystika on January 22, 2013

        I get what you mean, but it looks like TERA still doesn’t escape the use of hotkeys across the top of the keyboard.

        • nekodeus on January 22, 2013

          You could always plug in a 360 or PS3 controller if that makes you more comfortable.
          It works surprisingly well.

  5. rockmeo on January 21, 2013

    magicman , good job every show you and the free to play cast get better at this , you madme laugh a lot today , and thx to you ima give it a shot to headstart tera …. i hope i like it , since wizadrdy disapointed me .

  6. Denato on January 21, 2013

    yo bro so i herd you liek fishin….so we put fishin in an mmo and…..NOTHING ELSE! Have fun y’all!

  7. Essedess on January 21, 2013

    I went ahead and started on the “Discovery Edition” to get a jump start as was said in the video. First class I rolled was a Castanic Sorcerer, because i just love magic user classes. And to my delight the sorcerer class isn’t nearly as fragile as in alot of games and the ability to “Dodge!!” as Piccolo said in DBZ Abridged increases its survivability even more, totally possible ( if a little hectic at times) for me to take on groups of 10 enemies at once with her. I am currently searching for and trying to scrape together a little extra cash to buy a box for that founder status, but im totally not above registering with multiple yahoo accounts to get all the character classes since im the type of person that HAS to have every class in a game, even if i don’t particularly like a class :P.

    • Essedess on January 21, 2013

      Oh someone had mentioned “Endgame”, i don’t really care about endgame i usually just start a new character when one reaches max level……if i play a game long enough to ever reach max level (my Paladin on WoW is at level 68 limbo for several years now since i haven’t played in such a long time.)

      • ZhaoYun on January 21, 2013

        ya i am like u for example in Raiderz i reached lvl 35(which is still max lvl)and got good gear and thne i made a clerick(cause that game really lacks or used to lack when i used to play it clericks)

  8. WarhammerzRule on January 21, 2013

    i rolled up every class in tera thing lvl 20 and the funest class for me was archer its the best ever
    the archer is a fast phased kind and it is exciting igot to lvl 47 in my friends subed acount he let me have it this last 2 weeks it is very easy to solo bosses i love the game but im worried about endgame

    i have an a bomb to ESO cuz it is probably gonna be sub or buy and im flat broke

    untill then im gonna get some money and pass the time with tera and be happy ^_^

  9. Elveone on January 20, 2013

    Long time listener, first time poster here.

    I would like to address several things here.

    Neverwinter classes names: I am sure someone must have posted it already but just in case nobody did – the names of the classes in Neverwinter are the names of suggested builds in D&D 4th Edition. Yeah they might sound dumb but it is not the game’s fault – they were never meant to be official class names but more likely they described what the particular build of this class is supposed to be. For example – Defender Fighter Defends, the Great Weapon Fighter wields huge weapons, Control Wizard controls enemies and War Wizard is more focused on damage. It is kinda strange decision to make their classes out of the builds and the why of it is going to be revealed only when we finally get our hands on the game,

    Open world action MMOs: I don’t think there is one that really does it well enough at the moment. TERA and Raiderz both feel just a little bit too slow and the attacks you can off in them are kinda boring and The Secret World and Guild Wars 2 do not even qualify as action-MMOs. Still there are so little of these kind of games and gamers seem to be willing to endure sub-par combat systems to satisfy their hunger for that kind of gameplay. I am still amazed that nobody remembers The Chronicles of Spellborn – it had fast, skill based combat system that required player skill, thought and expanded with character progression. Too bad the game really came out before it’s time and a series of unfortunate events killed it too soon…

    Question of the week: I think you asked the question two times – one time for Neverwinter and one time for TERA. In TERA I would play either warrior, berserker or slayer. They seem very similar to me with only a slight difference in pacing. The warrior would be my default choice(two swords) but it seems too slow for the weapon she is wielding and the self-injury mechanic is kinda off-putting. In Neverwinter I would probably roll a Trickster Rogue first(if there isn’t a spellblade or dual sword wielding class) because of the really long daggers he is wielding.

    Weekly bomb: D-Bomb is going to Warframe’s enemy factions – I didn’t think much of it at the beginning but fighting different factions of enemies really do feel different(well, not really in groups but when soloing it is a whole different matter). A-bomb goes to Warframe’s warframe building system – to be able to get a new warframe you have to buy the blueprint from the market, then gather 3 different blueprints for the parts that are required to build the warframe blueprint and gather rare parts for each of the components. Each component is built for 12 hours and then the warframe is built for 3 days. Each rare components is dropped once in several runs from a boss guy… I know that there should be something to keep you interested in the game and there should be some kind of progression treadmill but come on!

    • ZhaoYun on January 21, 2013

      Neverwinter Classes Names:wow i never actually knew that nice thanks

      Open World action MMOs:idk about gw2 OR TSW since i never played neither of them but i do believe combat is more fast paced in tera than in Raiderz(at least as an archer in tera idk about other classes)

      as for ur A-BOMB i have to say omg so overall its like what 1 week work?(if u play non stop the game that is)dam thats a long time and correct me if i am wrong but u can play the game while building something right?like for example what i mean is lets say u got everything and u just need 3 days to build ur new warframe are u unable to play for 3 days cause u building it or u can play anyways?cause if u gotta wait 3 days without playin then wow

      • Elveone on January 21, 2013

        You can play the game while you are building stuff but the wait is solely made to be able to be skipped by paying additional money(silver) but the thing that really gets me is the grind required to get the blueprints and the materials.

        As for Tera and Raiderz – I find them both equally slow and the action is not really… I have not played the archer class though(Actually I find the 1h sword weapon in Raiderz to be faster than the melee classes in TERA). I guess I just miss TCOS πŸ™‚

  10. Hofman2HQ on January 20, 2013

    Well that’s going to suprise you but i’m not going to play TERA online and even more suprise
    an A bomb for tera for being late to become F2P and i will explain, Tera is an Action combat MMORPG, well when it first launch it was unique and very good…
    Now we got a few MMORPG that i’m not saying does it better, they just already doing that for couple of months…
    And of course a DaBomb for Warframe to been freaking awesome shit!!! very fun with friends and strangers and i’m don’t agree with Magicman about low capacity of revives, you should just make
    a strategy for the game and just reply it every mission.
    Love your show and shout out for israel! πŸ™‚

  11. Agitated on January 20, 2013

    yeah just looked at the dates.

  12. Agitated on January 20, 2013

    Tera came out before SWTOR and before THE SECRET WORLD. Tera is also the last one to go F2P out of those 3. Shame for SWTOR really enjoyed that game.

    • Inflictious on January 20, 2013

      TSW is Not free to play , B2p ..still costs 30$ if you want to play it.

      Out of a question a few episodes back which will go FTP first Tera,TSW or Rift..Tera went first !

      Inflictious

      • Agitated on January 20, 2013

        B2P, F2P same shit. The point is they failed before Tera, and Tera was f** condemned as a F2P in its first months. Tera lasted longer with a sub than both those mmos. It does not matter how you look at it.

        • Inflictious on January 20, 2013

          Well, don’t you get all huffy and puffy when questioned about your post or even commented !

          I was not being rude just stating my Opinion.

          Since you like to swear when questioned, Showing me your true age of 12.

          F2P and B2P .. Same Sh*T…. Please your highness , Tell me how they are the same?

          Don’t worry , I will Never respond to you again.

          Fact is your Wrong, When Tera releases in Febuary , Log ito TSW and say Hi , Without Paying 30$ !

          Done!

          • Agitated on January 20, 2013

            Oh I am sorry, are we politicians? or philosophers? We can’t swear on a gaming site? I don’t know who you think you are, but let me refresh your mind. You are nothing a nobody.

            Great, don’t ever respond, but your kind will never resist such temptations.

          • ZhaoYun on January 21, 2013

            Inflictious ofc b2p and f2p are not the same but what he meant(at least i think thats what he meant)is that tera technecly lasted “longer” as a p2p model than both SWTOR and TSW though i presonally still consider SWTOR as a p2p game i just pretend that they never did the f2p “attempt”

    • Lagwin1980 on January 20, 2013

      They are not taking into account the eastern release of tera, they are basing that off the US release of both and swtor was out several months before tera

  13. Donald on January 19, 2013

    @MagicMan

    I’m not too upset about the release pushback for Wizardy Online,unlike a few others I didn’t take vacation time to play through the entire first week of full release. I’m still very excited about the release now pushed back to the 30th(And I even expect it not being up until 2-3 days after that). Anyway, I wish they would stop putting out media that makes the game look so boring. (referring to the Underground Dragoon Dungeon video)

  14. neokiva on January 19, 2013

    question of the week doesn’t apply really so ill tell you my current rolled in order of roll high elf archer high elf sorcerer castanic warrior elin berserker( word to the wise avoid the cat ear black magic cosmetic item if you play elin, the cat ears are fine but i got the black magic first try turns out its not a dress but a black playboy bunny outfit with high heels and fishnets O.o) amani priest (may play later but have rolled) love the fact tera is going f2p, and the fact they are adding content at launch (5 mounts 1 battle ground a raid

  16. Reaper5167 on January 19, 2013

    Great show magicman, damina and brim lickins πŸ˜‰ been a busy week for me, finally had time to check out warframe, loving it, graphics are amazing, gameplay’s cool, community is crap but hey, at least the environment is pretty so i can have my attention deviated elsewhere haha, oh and my da bomb for this week is for you guys for making my week, and a da bomb for the only game i’ve played in a month, warframe. As for the question of the week, i’d like to be a warrior, as you mentioned it’s more of a evasion tank, i think that play style will suit me, because in any game i play, that’s usually the role i pick, the nimble fighter, you know… the float like a butterfly,sting like a bee thing, oh and by the way, i hope neverwinter changes their rouge trickster’s name into “the stealthy one”, goes well with the big weapon fighter hahaha. Cheers guys and have a great week πŸ™‚

  20. jellopy on January 19, 2013

    Not going to try it. I subbed for three months at launch, find the game to be great. Nice graphics,great gameplay and awesome art direction but I only have time for one game of this fashion and Guild Wars 2 is taking up my time. A couple other reasons being the ungodly huge client file and the initial swarm of free players on the server might lead to insanity so i will hold off a bit. I do recommend it though. It is a nice game for what it is.

  21. xcr00k3dx on January 19, 2013

    I was going to try Tera, had it downloaded & everything so I could get a , but my potato can’t handle it D,=> The Unreal engine bugs out on my machine no matter what game it seems to be. ,_,
    I was going to roll a Wizard (the class with the gyro thingy that looks similar a Sorcerer from Aion) so I could hurl fireballs at people like a boss, but the engine bugged out & I couldn’t actually CREATE a character. So I have an A-Bomb to my computer, for being a potato. And to my wallet, for being empty so I can’t upgrade to something not so potatoey, maybe like a refrigerator or toaster XD

    I also have a Da-Bomb to AntiRTFM on YouTube for making the best damn C++ tutorial, ever. He made it incredibly easy to understand & explained everything to small details. I might be able to go through with the MMO game idea I have fleshed out now ^_^

    • xcr00k3dx on January 19, 2013

    • Essedess on January 21, 2013

      I feel you, i had to make the same computer work for 6 years before i finally got a new one the Christmas before this one. If i hadn’t gotten it as a gift id probably still be trying to use my first computer.

  22. Vespetine on January 19, 2013

    When Magic Man reads your A-bomb… :O

    I wanted to formally introduce myself, Vespetine, to the MMOBOMB community. I came in a little late, about the beginning of December of 2012. I did however back-track and watch all the videos of the Free-To-Play cast after listening for the first time in December.

    First of all, today I’ve learned that I suck at keeping track of the games on my desktop. I had no idea “Warframe” changed the PRO system until now. Well, I might actually try the game again. And, I might go back on the forums and give the community the middle finger for thinking my suggestion about the PRO system was unheard of. I pretty much based my suggestions on the MMOBOMB free-to-play model outlook, being that Free-To-Play titles should give you all the content in-game and let you buy the custom items/outfits and the convenience-over-time items in the cash shop. Which I think is also the right way to do Free-To-Play, but instead, I got a hoard of trolls acting like the damn developers of the game.

    I’d like to give a DA-BOMB to Magic Man this week, for the ridiculous, but HILARIOUS voices. “Can I just say something?…Can I, Let me tell you something.” I had little laughing bursts for a about 20 minutes after that. I even marked down the time in the video so I could go back and laugh my breath away. Anyway, thanks for that Magic Man. I’m looking forward to the episodes to come.

    For the question of the week, I would probably go Archer with the Castanic race, just because I like the effects of the spells. But to be honest, I don’t think I’ll be trying TERA again because of the horrible client, as discussed in the video. I understand that the whole game is about 20 or so GBs of data, but that should have taken my computer about 2 or 3 hours to download. It ended up taking 10 hours to get to the 7 GBs mark. For some reason I kept getting messages that my connection was lost, and then connection was re-established, which slowed down the downloading process immensely. I never have this issue with other clients, so I know it can’t be my computer nor my connection. I also don’t think I’ll try TERA again because of the sole fact that, Yeah, It’s been done already. There are plenty of long time Free-To-Play games that have already implemented the combat, content, and game play that TERA is just now bringing to the table as a Free-To-Play title. If it had been a Free-To-Play game this whole time, It might have been known for being one of the few Free-To-Play titles to release the new fad of action-combat for MMOs. For now I don’t think I’ll try it unless they get a good update with the launch of Free-To-Play. But what do I know, I’m just a gamer.

    After watching your video of Tera , I never played and has brought me to my :

    A- Bomb to All free to play Fantasy style mmorpg’s as of 2007.

    1 of the reasons i see all these titles that were subbed going free to play.

    Where are the day’s of Vast worlds gone? Every game that come’s out is full of mini map’s or instance based. Tera , Your video look’s like it’s just a Path ..go in a straight line a – b…. Not even combat would make me play this…Thank god TESO is being released around the same time.

    * Shake’s Head *

    Peace

    Inflictious

    • Essedess on January 21, 2013

      No offense but it really is obvious you havn’t played it as you said. its definately not all instanced and to say its world is “Vast” is an understatement. trying to move from one area on the map to the next place my quests told me to go i thought “ill just save those silver from the travel points and ride my mount……it was an extremely long ride and that was just moveing to the adjacent area. I just ask that you give it a try first before passing judgment and condemning it. As all gamers should do before they say anything good or bad about a game “The proof is in the research”. πŸ˜€

  25. Koagz on January 19, 2013

    The combat in RaiderZ felt sticky to me. Playing Tera you can easily tell that the combat is a lot more fluid. Following both games a couple years before their releases RaiderZ was just a big let down for me. I feel it came out to late because I would of probably enjoyed it before playing Tera.

  26. MelonCider on January 18, 2013

    I want to give a HUGE steroid enhanced bulking muscled death ray laser equipped DA BOMB to a fan that worked on a private server for Prius. We (the fans) Have been waiting for months (CJ global/Netmarble) for them to release any info for us and their nothing! but a two minute video on youtube that is starting to look like a hoax to me now. and this guy did this while they were taking a shit or whatever hell they claim to be doing. Right now He is looking for testers: http://forum.ragezone.com/f111/interested-prius-anima-server-900311/index2.html

    A shit filled a bomb to CJ Global for not being able to release a game that should be already out! because it seems to me that it’s already done but they dont feel like wiping their own ass.

  27. ZhaoYun on January 18, 2013

    I don’t any A BOMBS but i got 2 DA BOMBS so

    DA BOMB for tera and everything u guys already mentioned(the prologue getting u to lvl 20 the f2p stuff and so on)
    and
    DA BOMB for magicman AIMING IN DA FEET this week when i enjoyed him streaming Tribes Ascend so good job on that man πŸ˜›

    Guestion Of The Week:i already got an lvl 14 archer in Tera(US verison ofc)i love it and i don’t regret for my choice at all but unfortunatelly i think i can’t play it cause for my pc graphics are high idk also i got something relativly “negative” to say on tera.THEY REALLY need to let us know what we can use when we set our names i mean we need to know that we CANT put numbers when choosing a name and that WE CAN put spaces/dots and other special characters

    Great show as always and have a nice day

    waaaah didn’t realise you guys took these comments left as the feedback for the ftp cast shows….so surreal (for me…..) switched from war thunder to catch the Wv3 server reset for GW2 whilst listening to this show and boom (just watched here comes the boom too before…..mma mmo anyone?????) the one and only Magicman starts reading out one of my comments regarding war frame.

    I still stand by my regard for ‘mounted’ which I posted as a reply in one of the other threads (you’ll have to search, it’s not a complimentary comment)

    Great show as always, keeps me entertained, was going to ask about ‘the game’, I remember Brim got vexed about said game in a previous show but can’t remember….but since I don’t remember I probably didn’t take an interest and thus don’t remember.

    Will give Tera a try – and as stated in the webcast, yeah I don’t expect it to be ground breaking but maybe better than what GW2 promised to be.

    Ass bombs to games that go P2P when not ground breaking and have to back track to some form of F2P. They don’t seem to realise they aren’t hitting a niche market with their game.
    Also same to old games that were P2P that are trying to hang on by going F2P.

      doh, forgot to state in first paragraph – I thought ppl had to pm in their comments to get mentioned within the FTP Cast show……and that’s why it was so surreal for me…….

    Does FreetoPlay have limited options or the whole game are now free ?

    • TheGamer on January 18, 2013

      You got a increased tax for the broker, 75 bank slots and only 2 characters per server.There will be no content restriction or anything like that.

  33. BullsI on January 18, 2013

    Played TERA for a few months after it released. The grind after 3x was just not fun enough for me to justify subscribing any longer. I already have one of each type of character (highest chars a lvl 47 warrior), but my lancer is by far the most fun. I love running the dungeons.

    It’s pronounced Bull’s I btw. Incredibly original I know. πŸ˜›

  34. heebeegeebee on January 18, 2013

    I have a super BIG A -BOMB…. for Defiance beta weekend due to the fact that , I cannot log into to accept the EULA to begin to test the game. when trying to log in I get a error due to server congestion well hahaha@ me i guess 2 day beta and the site wont let me even into my rift account super hahahaha @ me thats just poop countless web browsers have been tried malware scans proxy settings even a ip reconfig with no luck. i think i would have a better chance of getting a korean client to work vs this crap but hoooray for beta.

  35. TheGamer on January 18, 2013

    Question of the week:
    TOO BAD, iam already playing as a Warrior.I like it so far, the quests and storyline are…meh… but the combat is fun as hell (if hell is actually a candy land full of ice cream…) and it helps to get past the grinding.I dont mind the restrictions, and i dont know about you guys, but if iam limited to just 2 characters per server, what stops me from creating another account and playing the other 2 classes in the same server?Also, the players i meet in the game are somewhat happy with the conversion, they got some benefits and dont have to worry about paying subs anymore (they also like newcomers, because the community is dying, and they like to beat some newbs TO DEATH with their bare hands).

    Da bomb for Magickman SHOOTING IN DAH FEETZZ LIKE A B00S on the Tribes live stream!!

  36. AirSplash on January 18, 2013

    Sup Free to Play Cast! Great show as always. Been a little busy for the past month, but had a little extra time on hand thought I would get on and check out the site. I got a Da-Bomb for MMOBOMB.com for supplying me with mmo news cause im to lazy to go anywhere else. I also got a mixed bomb for Tera online, I have been playing Tera on and off for the past few months and I absolutely love it but I dont like how games become free to play after a set amount of time without giving a nice chuck of in game content to people who went out, bought the game, and then subscribed for said amount of time. I know they are giving us a title and a few extra little things but ive paid a pretty penny for your product, show me some love Tera. a game should either release as free to play, buy to play, or just stay subscribed. If a buy to play or a subscription based game goes free to play they should included some cool little extras to the people who paid. As for the Question of the week, When Tera goes Free to Play i will be making a new Character to role with the f2p people and my friends who wouldn’t play, it will be a Castanic Archer. Can’t wait till your next video f2pc PEACE!

    • ZhaoYun on January 18, 2013

      true but i rarely(personally at least)see b2p going to f2p

  37. hallow559 on January 18, 2013

    Getting the head start in Tera and playing a Sorcerer and Archer for now.

    Da-bomb for Tera for no other Reason then I have been having fun with it’s combat.

    A-bomb to Teras community and all the hate I have been seeing for free to play users …. they seem to forget that with out the ftp users the game could just be shutting down instead of continuing. (Yes I know this happens a lot but this is the first time I have see players out right say there going to hunt free to play players and make it hard for them to enjoy the game.)

    Just something to think about.

    • nekodeus on January 18, 2013

      Agreed on the f2p user hate, I started playing SWTOR once it was made free to play since I hadn’t had too much interest in it before. But man the community was crazy, so much hate on the f2p users for no good reason. Of course the f2p plan of the game is awful to begin with but the community was the thing that really ruined it for me.

      I just pray the same thing won’t happen with Tera’s community, at least not to that extent. I know that the current guild I’m in is very accepting of f2p users, so hopefully most people feel the same way.

      • Mattmanrx on January 21, 2013

        For some reason I think that’s not going to happen for two reasons

        1.I think that the stwor community was bad with F2P is because a lot of the players bitched and complained and where truly annoying.

        2. The reason why F2P users on stwor bitched because they did not get to do a lot of things.
        So with tera the only thing is that less bank slots and raid cool down time is less and few other minor things but that’s not that much to bitch about because the content they can still access all of it.

  38. Blackaria on January 18, 2013

    I will be giving Tera a try. I always wanted to but never got around to it. I will be playing a priest. Have been playing a lot of healers lately.
    I would love to see the FISHAO live stream with magic doing the commentary I will be giving it a try.
    DA BOMB for Dragon’s Prophet I know its saying a lot for a Sony online game but I am looking forward it.

  39. Lagwin1980 on January 18, 2013

    Question of the week…Being a founder i’ll hop back on my warrior and have a look see at anything that may have been added since i stopped subbing, then probably finish leveling my slayer.

    No bombs again this week…will have at least one for next week though.

    • Lagwin1980 on January 26, 2013

      Well since there’s no vid this week…i’ll pop my da bomb here in the hopes of it getting in for next weeks show.

      A massive da bomb for Path of Exile and Grinding Gear Games for a relatively smooth launch to Open beta…fortunately the amount of positive press and an influx to the website before the launch started them getting more servers for download and the game and despite that they were still swamped…but they didn’t go down.

      And their customer service seems to be good as they are giving those that bought a supporters pack and spent their points on stash tabs an additional tab per 5 purchased to match their multi buy offer for normal players, and despite warning players that the custom effects could be deleted many seem to have done just that and ggg will reimburse their item.

      With the weekend their servers are once again swamped as many more people loggin in with the weekend off…then they get DDOS’ed to boot…there are currently queues into the tens of thousands but they are still plodding along and trying to get more server capacity.

  40. Spammie on January 18, 2013

    I prefer RaiderZ, but i will play tera f2p aswell, and i want to also give a da bomb to warframe. gameplay is very smooth and i maxed my Escalibur. Time to play Ember.

    • Spammie on January 18, 2013

      PS GUYS: you got it right i’m from Romania.

  41. HellcatM on January 18, 2013

    I could not get into Wizadry. The writing is horrible! “Did you see that? He was stong! Do you think we’ll ever be that strong?” Sounds like a 4 year old wrote it. I don’t read a lot of quests but when there is a clip I do read (though I prefer if they had voice acting).

    Maybe I should just skip the crappy dialog and just try and see if i can play it for the game play. I just see other games coming out (Neverwinter and Elder Scrolls) that have so much more potential.

  42. Alen on January 18, 2013

    I’ll be playing my Slayer in Tera. Currently playing on an Unlimited trial account.
    And I’m happy that Tera is going free to play had to play Raiderz because I ain’t a P2P player.
    After playing Raiderz for 2 days and getting to Level 29 I got bored and I guess I’ll be bored of Tera too in a few days/weeks but still gonna enjoy those things.
    DA BOMB for MapleStory Europe for finally releasing Luminous and having a little less bugs then before but still enough bugs to annoy people πŸ˜›

  43. Mofutofu on January 18, 2013

    Don’t worry magicman, Tera has hell a lot more content compared to at launch. I quited Tera after I got bored of the end game content and a few days ago I’ve returned and the amount of new dungeons are off the roof also new battlegrounds for the pvp lovers too!

    A bomb for Dragon nest EU for finally announcing their CBT date (27th February) but sadly they are 2 years too late.. most European players have either played on the NA version via proxy or the SEA version.

    • Cacalips on January 18, 2013

      I am so on the fence with TERA. I am ex AION player, and not liking Gameforge hosting the closest server to me…as they ruined AION For me. I don’t think I can support their fame by being a ping in theri servers. But hey, maybe a first movein good direction, then I read all the articles about tera and how stale it is (including no ability to sit etc..just stale class – grind – level – move on) with BAMS as the only thing exciting.
      I just purchased and am having a blast in The Secret World…So I will wait a few months and updates to TERA befor getting hands on.
      DITO on the DN. And if you go to the SEA forums, and have played this game, you will see they are going the vindictus route. GIMP the drop rate, create a super farm grind game. And hope people pay for random skill pots for CHANCE (not gauranteed) of drop. Then once you bleed eyes out getting it…UPDATE, new dungeon, absolute stuff. Move on…
      Some like eye blood. I hear it is salty as it drips down your cheeks into your mouth….

      • Magicman on January 19, 2013

        Curious what about TSW has you having a “blast” now since 11 days ago on multiple sites (including this one) you blasted it for having poor combat, a weak story, and you hated guns being on CDs instead of reload.

        I get the guns on CD thing may have been a “personal preference” type thing that you’re willing to deal with…but if you hated the combat AND the story that’s basically saying you hate the game as a whole.

        What features changed or what changed your opinion on some things may I ask?

        • Inflictious on January 19, 2013

          Well i only read his post because you commented on it.

          I have a question myself…

          In your post here on flaming the game .. You said it doe’s not run on your machine.. If it did not work the first time , Why would you buy a Second Copy ?

    • omar on January 23, 2013

      i played dragon nest on us server…without proxy or similar…but believe me…you will borde after 2 days…..dragon nest is preetty far worse than raiderz or tera or guild wars 2 or a lot others…..don’t wast time

  44. HellcatM on January 18, 2013

    So you said that the questing in Tera was run of the mill and RaiderZ fighting felt muddling. So if Tera had the questing of RaiderZ or if RaiderZ had the fluidity of Tera the games would be better?

    • Magicman on January 18, 2013

      Nope. πŸ™‚ RaiderZ is a quest grind too, same thing lol. Tera wins on fluidity for me at least!
      -Magicman

      • nekodeus on January 18, 2013

        I think they’re quite similar in their combat style, if you compare a Raiderz berserker to a Tera berserker they’re quite similar speed wise for an example. I personally don’t think Tera is any more or less fluid in the combat, at least not to me, I mean I actually prefer the Raiderz combat. I really like them both though.

        • ZhaoYun on January 18, 2013

          Tera personally wins for me Raiderz has only 4 classes Tera has more(i think like 8 or 9?can’t remember)so thats why i believe Tera is better(also tera has races :P)

          • TheGamer on January 19, 2013

            But RaiderZ have a “open class” system, you can learn skills from another class, Tera have a more linear skill progression.
            TERA wins for sure, the warrior combat is soooooooooo freaking amazing!

          • nekodeus on January 19, 2013

            Classes and races doesn’t necessary make a game better than the other, it is definitely a bonus though.

  45. War2Good on January 18, 2013

    As much as i want to give Tera a good try: i cant , because they think that apparently publisher thinks that there is only hackers and account thiefs here in Russia. So A HUGE A BOMB to Tera online.

  46. nekodeus on January 18, 2013

    I will probably be going with a warrior in once Tera launches it’s F2P.
    I’ve played quite a lot of cleric(it has another name in game, no?), but I’m just super uncomfortable with casting classes in “technical” mmos despite usually playing cleric in everything. I have also played berserker, more so than cleric, and it’s a lot more comfortable for me personally.
