Improved performance in the big cities, loved the shops but can understand why they had to go. Wondering why and how they changed all the classes... AFTER the close beta test where we could have had a chance to help them balance it out some. Now what? We just gamble that they didnt add new stuff that completely turns pvp and pve balance up on its head? The game was solo'able by people who were skilled in pve. Perhaps needing one extra person for dungeons if they were both grade A players! Sure warrior needed a little boost in pvp, and so did ranger... and i guess you cant give other classes new mechanics and skills without giving the others a little too? But damn... you had it ready, why not let us help you... now its in OB and we'll all just flood in trying to figure out if something is crazy OP or not and maybe it'll be fixed? And maybe it wont.
Seems like they made this change more so for the people struggling in pve, reminds me of the screamers that made from software patch Dark souls to make it easier. I beat the piss out of the game before it was updated just fine! You dont want to develope as a player then dont play a game where skills are involved, go press 1 and stand in the back of a raid on another game.
Just a suggestion.
To the game devs please just stop wowizing this game and leave it be... swear next thing we'll hear on an update is "Tab targeting now a selectable option!" -_-
I didn't read all these pages, nor will I ever read all these pages. Frankly, I am upset as a consumer that a lot of these options were forced out of the game. Censorship? Really? The Elin may look like children, but they aren't, hell they aren't even human. Pet shops? Those who complained about them lagging their game are the ones who are probably too damn cheap to upgrade their computer from using a Pent 4 processor and 512MB of RAM. There is, or at least was, an option to turn it off. Just tell people, "Hey, there's an option to turn it off and we aren't telling you that you HAVE to use this."
However, there is a flip side to this. Maybe, just maybe, these changes are for the better for the game since, let's use the censorship of Elin as an example, churches would cry blasphemy and take EME and/or Bluehole to court because they are trying to "show children as sexual objects." That's total crap and the churches know it, but they want to complain anyways just like all the kids who want things handed to them because their mommy and daddy handed everything to them on a silver platter. But again, this is just a maybe.
As a final note, I honestly believe that it's in the interest of the developer (Bluehole) and publisher [(EME) at least I think they're considered the publisher] to stop catering to everyone who complains about something in a game. There's a fine line that you walk when you cater to everyone: you either A) Gain a small "fan-base" while losing a larger amount because of the extreme changes you made to people who whine or B) Lose a small "fan-base" and might have to deal with some PR problems, but you won't lose a lot of people because you've shown that you stand up for what you believe in and not change every aspect of a game that is just fine before all the changes. Now, I'm spouting my opinion like everyone else and I can't care enough if this reaches the people it needs to. But let's think about this another way, shall we? Instead of constantly complaining on the forums to the "oblivious GM's", which from the two whole support tickets I've placed both GM's were knowledgeable and nice and I have a much more favorable stance of the GM's than maybe the majority, try setting up some kind of meeting where a group of individuals represent the "people" and talk to the developer/publisher of TERA to discuss these changes. I know they did this in Europe with another company but the name doesn't come to mind.
Please try to keep TERA the way it is/was for Korea, minus translations/localization, of course. It's sad to see good games go the way of the bargain bin because they were dumbed down.
nice work enmasse i've played all 5 cbt, thank god you take pet shops, hate them always in the way.
i have one request more servers around the world particularly in america latina, playing from argentina and cant fully enjoy pvp. Also think auz people will need an oceanic server
