No server crash despite the F2P launch inrush. No crash if I alt tab (like most games) - Looks like AION but runs like a dream! I do not understand, it is the same engine as AION, PFFTT wow, I had no idea I can run this engine on my pc. This is great! The game itself is super! AION like character creation. OPen class and race and sex selection! I created an awesome little ferret like guy.
So far the game is a blast! Almost level 10. Ill cry later if this grind kicks in, but if it stays interesting, direct, and engaging, it is awesome.
YOu start a tutitorial as a level 20 character if you WANT, not forced, and it teaches you basics with locked skill bar and set of lvl 20 skills. DONT get discouraged if you think the level 1 - 20 experience, it is just a small tutorial zone, after it is over, you port to the noob area and at level 1, skill bar unlocked, and just a handful of level 1 skills.
Combat is good, like vindictus, but implemented in open world, WAY better than RaiderZ. RaiderZ is actually target based as you can "LOCK" on your target. RaiderZ also feels clunky and enemy attacks are super questionable. Tera has it down.
These "first look" videos did not do it justice. I actually logged in to troll it...but I am impressed by the imerssion, social aspect, and gameplay. I have not gone to nitty gritty details, but every interface I open does not really seem that deep. It is JUST deep enough. If you are looking for maze like skill trees, tons of LoTRO like menus to put little points here and there on a char...this is not it.
This game is chreate the eye candy, play in the eye candy, heres the quests go for it! The story is solid enough to enjoy it, and no deep lore that requires 5 books to read to understand. I was afraid this would be a mob grind fest, but they are placed really well out, and player scale model vs world, is perfectly balanced to feel special in it. AION kind of had this same feel, but the gimpy ass flying, and stupid stand and spam skills took edge of allot of it. This world feels FLUID, a little alive as players run around and story pushes on, but well put together;
RaiderZ is a bad example of a similiar game. RaiderZ is a game with eye candy, and open combat, but just stupid and close mob placement and the engineering of it felt very mchanical, and not fluid or challenging. Just "this is point A - must farm to point B". TERA could turn into that soon, but so far if it does, the fluidity of combat, especially for me a priest, is superb!
Ok...enough ass kissing on this game. Now...I will be back if and when I get screwed by the bad...please no. I already uninstalled Secret World for this, as Secret dissapointed me on every level.
not much players..
Running on the Euro servers now. Apparently En Masse only allows IP froms the 4 regions, where the one on gameforge only blocks the mentioned countries. So any countries not mentioned are able to play on the gameforge Euro servers.
Mob grinds = Freedom to make your own goals,
Quest grinds = You are busy ALL the time!
but whichever works your boat, I'll still give this game a shot anyway.
sad to say been waiting for it, but... but.. but...
PS: I'm a dude, not a pervert... Like there's a difference nowadays.
