Woah hold up second guys. I think we are reading this case wrong.

This case is a criminal case between NCsoft and former employees of NCsoft. This is not the civil case of NCsoft vs. BHS. The NCsoft vs. BHS case is still pending an appeal.

2011 January: Civil court dismissed previous ruling, stating Bluehole Studio will not need to pay for the damages.

The BHS vs NCSOFT case has been over for a while. But the posted new update for this year only re-affirms it by re-stating it again.

I don’t think so Tash. It looks to me that NCsoft appealed that decision in 2011.

Quote

Beside of the prosecution’s suit, the civil case for damages leaded by NCSoft is waited for the court’s ruling. NCSoft claim damages of US 5.7 million against Bluehole Studios, the developer of TERA. NCsoft won the original trial, but Bluehole Studio won the second trial.

There will be another high court case coming up soon, which is the one between NCsoft and Bluehole Studio. NCsoft is suing Bluehole Studio a massive 6,500,000,000 Korean Won for economic losses….. Bluehole Studio has been ordered by the court to pay NCsoft 2,000,000,000 Korean Won so far, which was later debunked.

http://www.mmocultur...or-lineage.html

The way I read these statements is that NCsoft won the first Civil case and BHS appealed that decision. BHS then won the second civil case (the one in 2011), and NCsoft appealed that decision. Now it comes down to South Korea’s Supreme Court to finally settle the matter.

Civil cases are way too confusing.
Ah well. Either way, it's unlikely they'll stop TERA at this point. If anything, there will likely be some form of agreement for profit split.

Despite the wrongdoings by those few ex-staff members, this whole mess has only made me more angry towards NCSOFT.
These are some really lame court troll tactics they're employing here. But I suppose this is to be expected of NCSOFT.

Oh Tash this is nothing! lol. This is small potatoes.

http://www.tomshardw...ement,8674.html

Pretty much every major NA player in the MMO scene has had to settle with this "Paltalk Holdings Inc," Just so they can do business. The article is a little old, but I’m sure they are still around.

I do agree with you Tash, I expect some sort of settlement/profit sharing to result of this case.

I don’t want to come down as too much of a hard-ass, but I got to side with NCsoft. Don’t get me wrong, I love TERA. I think it’s a great game. I have two accounts ready and waiting for the game. But that does not change the fact NCsoft was stolen from. As someone who has been waiting for the true successor to L2 for a long time, I can only wonder what would have been.

Oddly enough I hope that both BHS and Ncsoft will be able to grow as game developers after this. NCsoft has been the top dog in Korea for a very long time. Some real competition between the two should hopefully lead to better games in the future.

You always know how to make me cry.
I don't know with this rocky start even without the whole court issue, they didn't seem to hit the right note with Korea, but hey you could always move to the west... oh no wait all the anime style hate.

I don't know how forgiving those guys over there, if they are reasonable they can probably save themselves.

Yeah, Genji.
We have tons and tons of patent trolls in NA. It's ridiculous how they push the system around in circles. There is few judges that actually catch them and corner them but then they can't do much if anything to them.

The Tim Landell case was the prime example of patent trolling in the gaming industry.
If you research the guy for just 5 minutes, I guarantee you'll want to throw up. It's disgusting.

whoever played it and is going to play it in the future, please tell me how it is...

to me it looks like all they added to the combat system is a crosshair and a dodge skill but people on the internet are acting like its the 7th heaven.

i know the graphics and environment look great, no doubt, but the style of the gameplay looks kind of generic to me.

Here's a better idea: Play it for free this weekend.
It's open beta test time. Anyone can play it.
Besides, you should be able to gather why people enjoy/dislike TERA by reading bits on this thread.

The wait to see if Apple's got a new Macbook release is becoming very difficult... I really want to give this a try, but I can't!

I'm not quite sure what they were posting there to be honest lol.

Yes BHS is not guilty, they were not on trial. Those former NCsoft employees were.

Their point was mostly this: BHS did not use the stolen assets to create TERA as the courts have found BHS not guilty of doing so.
Of course, the whole thing is going to create more drama rather than the opposite.
