Pretty much the extent of the news for Tera that I saw on IGN was a pretty critical fifteen minute youtube vid from some guy who looked like Fred Savage from the wonder years, only more virginal. Diablo 3 and Guild Wars 2 both seem to have front page news stories every day, but Tera gets the shaft.
Conspiracy theories or just a lack of marketing on EME's part?
I guess it's gonna fall on us to get the word out.
No seriously, IGN sucks. They are like the poster child for bought and paid for positive reviews. If the guy you're talking about is the one I'm thinking of...I want to punch him in the face every time I see him do a "review".
Yeah they used to say "OMG Tera is the MMO to keep an eye on and possibly the MMO of the year." Yet they sell out to GW2... Way to go IGN..
You can't spell ignorant without IGN.
If it isn't Call of Duty, IGN usually doesn't care.
It is NOT just IGN. Gamespy, PC Gamer, Destructoid all have minimal coverage of Tera. (if any)
While I feel the loyalty towards TERA, TERA is "old" while Diablo 3 and GW2 are fresh/brand new. Not to mention TERA being an "Asian" game are usually frowned upon by some of the Western population before even trying the game, not to mention outside the TERA circle of fans others do not share the same interest in TERA.
Tera's a great game, but beyond the shiny lusty graphics and semi-innovative combat system Tera has little to claim. Plus the fact that En Masse hasn't brought out any major press releases or material for press. (The MMOFu thingy was lame tbh)
On the other hand screw them, I'm personally fine with our community atm not to mention with all the queues I don't really want more players. ;x They're missing out, not me.
