I've been playing Tera since launch and its an amazing game ^^ Character name Myliu on Celestial Hills server if you want to look me up . It has been an awesome game however I do wish it had stayed p2p . There was literally no lag back then , the game economy was rock solid and there was a distinct feeling of community . Once it went f2p it was literally invaded and immediately the top 5 guilds are from other countries . ( Yes I am playing BnS on China's sweet servers , hear me out here as I am learning some of the language and have my keyboard set up to type characters as well ^^ ) This invasion brought in more than an influx of non US gamers it also ushered in a new lack of respect in the Global chat community . Before f2p we all knew each other and 90% of the people , having spent hard earned cash , treated each other and the game with respect . You pay $ for something it matters to you at least it does to me . The f2p community is a festering pool of ... I won't even go into it . Let's just say that the things being discussed in Global chat make me ashamed to be associated with these people and I'm not overly sensitive
Tera is an awesome game and definitely worth checking out . My advise is keep Global off unless you need it , look things up for yourself instead of asking in Global unless you want to be trolled to death and cursed out and just have a good time ... in a relatively closed and hostile environment . Get a group of friends or a guild that isn't complete douche masters and have a great time
I'd love to see you there just put on your armor irl first because the trolls bite lol . Thanks for reading !
