Game launch is going to be nutz. There are going to be tons of people. Keep in mind that many people won't play past the first month for one reason or another. I would like the pvp server populations to remain high after the initial drop in players.
With that said. I would like to see 2 pvp servers at most.
1/3 of tera pop likes pvp
On the mmo market in the US, Tera is kinda coming out of no where, so i could see Tera having a fairly slow start, but hopefully it grows stronger over time.
Many mmo fans are getting tired of seeing failures get launched with lack of content at endgame, bugs that are just annoying to deal with, and missing features ingame that should have been thought out long before beta was tested.
I'm not saying any of this is going to happen in Tera, but... i would bet that the general public is starting to get werrie about what mmo's they invest their time and money in.
personally I'd love to see Tera have a slow start and build over time instead of having the community that Rift and ToR had at their launch.
WoW didn't start out with 10 million subs, but grew over time and that's a pretty good structure for any mmo developer to follow.
lol I would love to see Tera launch OB with 2 PvP servers.
