I just finished uninstalling TERA from my computer. I just wanted to throw this out there because I feel TERA should have been one of the greatest MMO’s out there and it is now having to deal with the initial “players join and then leave” scenario. They’ve had server merges from 11 to 3 servers to get people more together so people wouldn’t have a hard time finding groups or something nice on the Broker/Auction House. They’ve also said they’d be doing more player focused events, more content, and maintain a commitment to giving the players what they need. They’ve recently put out an expansion and finally put in the organized PVP. I can dig this, but I have a hard time playing a game that none of my personal friends play.
All of this is well and good, but I’d say that unless they are ok with being a niche title, they are a bit more optimistic than I would be if I were in their shoes.
I tell you this truly though, if a good number of my buds just up and decided to play this game again, I would jump at the chance to get more action out of this title. The combat was the best I’ve ever seen in any MMO action/non-action combat MMO I’ve played period. This game deserves more than the lukewarm welcome that it received.
