not sure if OP is trolling or just stupid
not sure if you are all retarded or not but there is no reason for the game to go F2P they will be getting loads of money from our subs and from ppl to lazy to farm gold and just buying Cronoscrolls with cash to get gold ingame
No reason for TERA to go F2P. The reason there's been a increase of P2P going F2P is because it's always a last ditch effort to prolong the life of a old dying game or a game that was released way too early or the company managing it just sucks.
Its Mostly NCsoft making there games F2p.................. just saying....
Tera online is a New Gen. mmorpg it change the way you play in mmorpg. when other mmorpg staying with the old generic combat system
The model for the future will be free to play or buy to play. IMO, this is the last year that ANY significant MMO will release with a subscription fee. And once these games focus on making the cash shop only for aesthetic and convenience items, then you'll see less people trolling F2P games with claims of being Pay to win.
FYI, server costs have gone DOWN in the last 10 years. When WoW came out, high speed internet was just coming up and the majority of the world was content with dial-up or DSL. Therefore, having speedy servers was a high cost endeavor, justifying a subscription fee.
Right now, it's no longer that much of an issue. Average server speeds and internet connections are faster, making upkeep costs cheaper since more and more people have high speed internet. Companies now tag on the subscription fee so that they can "add more content". I may be wrong, but adding a few dozen kill-10-rats quests and a boss battle does not cost millions of dollars of development money -_-.
Personally, I like how TERA's subscription model is right now (<10 bucks a month for a 6 month sub), but have no delusions, the P2P model is dying.
from what i read this patch has rifft invation not server v server pvp you can look it up dont get so pissy anyway good hunting
