Wonder will this end up like in real life, only rich and connected people get power and benelovent people never are in control. And then secret deals made behind everyone's back.
I already heard about guilds who plan to take tyrant control of everything and ruin everybody's game.
Then the weak can band together and overthrow. It is possible
Any word on when the first elections will happen?
Vote for Dragon Lords! We are here to bring the changes you want!
I'm amazed anyone is excited about this. We're bombarded by politics in life, then log into the game and have to deal with the same crap.
When I first looked over the features of TERA, it was the one turn-off.
At least the election cycle will only last one week. In the real world I get tired of the news networks spending at least 3 1/2 years out of every 4 on the topic. "With only 1000 days left until the mostest importantest election ever..."
I also hope that each account will only get to cast a vote in one province. One vote total on one server. That way a zerg guild wont be able to control multiple provinces by putting up candidates from though alt guilds. Would be nice to get an official word on how that will actually work.
This is going to be such an abused system for large guilds.
All they have to do is split their guild up and vote for their own. One large guild will be able to control at least 2-3 zones.
Ah this is awesome, its like Lineage 2 only instead of castles its land and we siege with something other than brute force which might be an interesting change. To those that are unhappy with this part of the game, im sorry but server politics are an awesome part of the mmo experience and its nice to see that they are actually building it into the game. The downside is that you can blame enmasse instead of the guilds that run your server if the politics naturally developed over time via the players.
