I will be adding links for information and posting some of our replies to specific questions to this thread through edits - keep checking back. In the mean time here is two helpful links - one for our free FAQ and one for the very cool dev tracker to nab everything we are saying.

Check out the FAQ for going free here.

Check out the unofficial TERA dev tracker to see what we have said lately.

Check out the Reddit thread for answers as well


---

Q: Will the consumable items moved from general stores to the cash stores in the Korean version of TERA (mw alk, enig, etc) free be the same for EME?

A: The honest answer is that it is not 100% decided. These items and everything else in the store are tradable so they will be purchasable without En Masse Points on the broker or through trade.

Please voice your concern - constructively- it will help in the final decision.
--

Q: What are your plans to combat the botting problem? (That exists in the subbed version currently as well)

A: We will continue to use data and reports to find and ban any botters. We understand going free will increase the population and we will add resources where necessary.
--

Q: What are your plans to handle inflation or deflation of the in-game currency?

A: Any big game update changes the economy - we will monitor it and make adjustments, gold is critical in TERA and we are always watching prices and the global totals.

Q: What are your plans to handle hackers?

A: Violently. We will continue with the known change being that there will be more of them.
--

Q: What are your plans to combat gold spammers with the fall of the Chronoscroll?

A: All items from our shop will still be tradable in the game. We still believe this is the best way for players to obtain the items they want without using En Masse Points and for those that need in-game gold to get it legit.
--

Q: Is it possible to buy the game today and still get founder once Tera goes F2P?

A: Yes you get all the founder benefits!
--

Q: Why won't you let me buy 3, 6 or 12 month elite plans?

A: We won't have this option at launch. If you are an existing plan that is 3, 6 or 12 it will change over to the 1 month $14.99 plan when your time expires. We are considering adding 3, 6 and 12 after launch.

--
Q: Will there be new servers when TERA changes to free?

A: Yes we plan on opening up new servers, actual numbers, types and names will be coming later.
--

Q: What are the plans for server transfers?

A: They are free for now and will continue to be available at launch.
--

Q: Will elite have priority queue access?

A: No all players will be logged in equally.
--

Q: If you're Founder and Elite, you will get the benefit which ever is greater. The Elite having 2 character slots applies to new players only, even free Founder accounts have 8 character slots so Founder with an Elite subscription will have them too. What you benefit from Elite is all the additional stuff, e.g. boosts.[/quote]

-

Q: Will the elite mount be account wide?

A: Yes so long as you are an elite member you will have access to this mount. If you are no longer elite you will no longer have access.
--

Q: Will there be a such thing as Game Time Cards, or something similar, that is sold via other vendors?

A: Our new system does give us more flexibility on payment models but we won't have a physical card quite yet. I will add it to our list of feedback, thanks!
--

Q: will dungeon cooldowns/entries be increased for founder/free players, or will they remain the same, and elite players get decreases?

A: The current cooldowns will remain the same as they are now when we switch to free. Elite get the bonus of half of what they are currently.
--
Q: What are you plans on the server transfers? Are you opening a completely new server where you can't transfer? or are people going to be able to transfer to every server?

A: We have a few servers ready to go. They will be fresh. When they launch and whether we allow transfers to them is still being decided - we are leaning to no transfers to them.

For those of us whose subscription ends later this month, will we need to pay 14.99 to continue playing until the transition? I see accounts are active until the 16th.

@Naoto my first answered question up there is regarding this - The honest answer is that it is not 100% undecided. These items and everything else in the store are tradable so they will be purchasable without En Masse Points on the broker or through trade.

Please voice your concern - constructively- it will help in the final decision.
