I'd have to say that TERA was not really overhyped at all. They emphasized on true action combat and the way the classes would excel over other games, that's what I got. They didn't focus on how uber-ahmazing their questing system was, they did touch on enchanting and say it was an exceptional system which, to me, while it could use tweaks in the RNG, I like the system. Aside from those few things BAMs, true action combat and class systems were the only things about the game that they hyped, and I can't say I was disappointed unlike others who can't seem to be pleased.
I love TERA. I also didn't spend hours upon hours maxing and get to 60 in a matter of days. None of my characters are level 60, and that's the way the game was meant to be played. Slowly, enjoying everything every quest and option has to offer. Sure, you can say you'd get burnt out by doing that on every character, and I do find myself zooming through the dialogue and skipping cut scenes, but I still enjoy it overall.
I knew once all of the fanboys starting bashing TERA openly that they'd be disappointed once they actually got onto the game and played. People on TERA were not disappointed
perse, but instead pushed through levels too quickly and weren't too pleased about end-game content. There's a difference between being disappointed with the overall game and being disappointed with the lack of content.
Anyways. To the OP, I completely agree with your post. This gives EME a chance to make a different impression on those who came back from GW2, if they had any time at all, this would be it.
