So Tera went F2P Finally, should I say I told you so?
In my opinion TERA was one of the biggest FLOPS in MMO history.
I purchased the TERA collectors edition and quit after less than like 48 hours of actual playing the game because it was boring UI Text was small, I know it can be adjusted but I shouldn't have to adjust I reported the bug during beta it should have been fixed still wasn't fixed. ( Still isn't fixed today.)
Well anyways game is F2P now so I shouldn't complain now right?
So here is my complaint about F2P TERA.
1. Was going F2P the right move, Absolutely given the fact that TERA was sinking loosing customers they really had no choice. I would have stayed subscribed like a year had they have given me the unlimited customizations like I thought I was purchasing when I bought my collectors edition.
What do I really get as a paying subscriber I am already a founder, its really not worth subscribing to for any reason what I want if I am going to subscribe is.
1. Ability to freely customize my characters appearance without having to buy Scrolls to makeover my character each time.
2. XP boosts instead of giving me scrolls and items give me a boost that lasts for as long as my paid subscription lasts or something not just a scroll that lasts an hour a day or something.
** Yes I do pay for 3 EVE Online accounts, but sometimes I like a side game to play when I get bored, so what I am saying is whats the point when I can just login play a dungeon a day and log back out not loosing much as not paying the subscription a month.**
What I am tired of in the MMO industry.
1. True Action Combat.
Tera doesn't feel like true action combat to me c9 and Blade & Soul as well as Skyrim feels more like true action combat, Diablo 3 for that matter TERA does not maybe its an option but still.
LF1M for X dungeon, I would like the ability to solo any dungeon any time drops are not as good without more players the more players the harder the dungeon and better loots that drop kinda thing sure TERA wasn't like this but still. I think it would have been good if it was maybe people would have stayed subscribe longer who knows.
So the bottom line and question is why should I return to TERA when they can't offer me what I want in a MMO, I am tired of the Pay 2 Enjoy, and Pay 2 Win models in MMO's I want to be able to sit down play the game enjoy it the way I want to not have to be restricted to the way a character looks if I want pink hair to go with my pink armor allow me to do this without restriction as a subscriber if I want something else for my brown armor then allow this I would likely return if it was like this.
I have actually installed TERA, I am not trolling, what is the point of me returning to the game I just can't find myself to Like TERA like I do EVE Online, or League OF LEgends they offer me what I want more than TERA although its nice for a change in MMO Scene so I do keep an eye on MMO's and something fun to do. At least in EVE I can change my potrait and character 100% FREE any time I want only thing I really cant change is skin tone or morphing but it doesn't matter.
Last but not least I was told I would likely be banned for making a post like this, I guess time will tell if this guy is telling me the truth or not, although I have the feeling it is a TROLL trying to cause flame with Enmasse, but then again its other news.
** (I was reading MMORPG.COM and found these.)
Seriously Unless Enmasse has changed I really do not believe this story unless I see it for myself due to the fact that I debated their EULA in their face after really I never accepted an EULA when I purchased my game because the Manual that was printed the URL was invalid, and because my original TERA account was made during beta I was not required to accept an agreement, might have been a bug who knows, I even took my complaint to the Better Business Buau about TERA, it was never resolved, so it will stay there as unresolved I am sure, but my point is I was never banned, and I never actually broek their EULA/TOS anyways, but I have been a very unsatasified customer after buying the collectors edition for around $100 including shipping and found out I had my ability to freely customize and had to pay more for changing looks taken away from me as a paying consumer the reason I left TERA to begin with.
OF Course I do not know what actually happend as I read in the posts GM's do not disclose information on other players which is understandable who knows what they actually said or did, but point being I really do not think Enmasse is banning players based on opinions unless they actually are very disrespectful or something.
** I do hope that TERA will improve in some ways to make me want to spend some money but if not I am always spending in other F2P Games.**
... But anyways its F2P now right so I shouldn't complain?...
