every MMO for the past 5+ years has had "great potential". Look at where they all are now...
TERA has been out for over a year already in Korea. When it launched there it had even less content for people to engage in. So you guys actually had extra content for launch in the western version, developed during that one year span.
Unfortunately it still sucks. Unfortunately I think this will drive a lot of players away. A majority of players, even.
I've kept my mouth shut over this and I don't mean any offense to anybody, but saying, "go roll an alt" if you are bored isn't really a response. In no way did I rush through the game, in fact it took me nearly a month and a half (if you include the time in open beta) to reach level 60, all of that while juggling a full time job and a fiancee. If the end game content was appropriate, you shouldn't need to roll an alt (especially when this game has only been out officially less than 2 months).
Currently, there are very few incentives for GvG gameplay (the guild quest rewards are a joke), there are no rewards or punishments for pvp gameplay (why not make outlaws or non-outlaws unable to use certain vendors in certain cities? or offer monetary rewards to killing outlaws? why not offer similar rewards for outlaws, like maybe a hit list that players can anonymously offer money to have somebody killed in game?) and the only way to earn any usable amounts of gold (you get very little gold from daily/rep quests) are to grind away for hours on mobs (some of us have to work a full time job, so that isn't really an option) or repeating dungeons ad nauseam with the slight chance you might get a lvl 12 item that you can use to upgrade your current outfit/weapon or sell so that you can buy the overpriced materials that you need to try to upgrade said item, which more times than not, fails. Then you add in the Nexus (or should I say Lagxus) events that literally turn into a powerpoint slide show even on the best of computers (which isn't a surprise considering most are populated by 300+ people riding in a horde from one nexus portal to another with them all tossing their AoE attacks at the same time).
At this point, I mainly play because my friends are playing but even then, I've been playing more and more of other games and I really am debating whether or not it is worth it to resubscribe.
