I will send these ideas along! And you'll be happy to know some of these are already on their way!
I'll address a few of these things - and thanks for the feedback!

First, we shifted a few things to the forums and other methods of notification; we know that most players do NOT get their event information from the website (based off the traffic we get to the site, who is coming, how long they are staying, what they are looking at). I have asked the team to make sure we keep posting NEW types of events or promotions, or seasonal things on the website with news posts as well as all the other social methods (like forums, twitter, facebook, discord, Steam community hub, in game calendar, etc...). This includes product releases and sales as well as announcements about content updates or big news. I've basically relegated BIG NEWS to news posts.

Recurring events like dungeon highlights, battleground jackpots, vanguard bonuses, guardian legion bonuses, and the like will be shared via all the other channels we have, but will stay off the main page of the TERA site. Because the site is shared (and even though we have a filtering system), it will reduce confusion about these events that have now become pretty regular as to what platform they are happening on. Plus it becomes white noise at some point - just flooding news posts means people begin to ignore them and then more important info flies right by them. So keep looking for these types of events on the forums, twitter, facebook, discord, in game event calendar, Steam community hub, and all those kinds of places. It's not to say these events aren't imporant, they are just recurring, and platform specific. If we find that players really have no idea what's happening, we can re-evaluate this. For what it's worth, the launcher is still our number one communication method with PC players, and we are working on ideas on how to make information on there more useful and relevant for things exactly like this!

As for patch notes, the web team needed to prioritize what needed to be ported over from the old site to the new and the product team deprioritized the old patch notes from the site and decided that this was an opportunity to move them to a place that didn't require web team interaction at all. Remember even things like creating the patch notes page and getting it posted at a certain time requires resource coordination that we felt was better spent working on other things on the site (perhaps like making the launcher information more relevant like I listed above). Instead of getting writers to write them, then send them to QA for verification, then to the web team to stage, then to coordinate posting them along with links in the forums and all that, it made more sense to put them on the forum, where the discussion inevitably lead anyway. So all patch notes going forward are posted in the PC patch notes sub-forum!

As for the Godsfall update, this particular patch we will be posting the patch notes and promo page next week, so stay tuned!

Hope this clears some of this up; the TL:DR of it is that BIG NEWS will be news posts, and recurring/smaller news will be posted everywhere but the news posts.

Corsairs' Stronghold - Win in Corsairs' Stronghold[/b] (not the pre-formed version)
Fraywind Canyon - Win in Fraywind Canyon

- Champion's Enchanting Chest x1
- Ruby x2
Announcement coming in April!
I understand you are posting for advice from PC players but please either use the Discord or post to the PC players in the console forums.
Code hasn't been nerfed - it gives exactly what it has since I created it yesterday.
I would totally release them to you right now if I could.

So we can assume then that it is a regional contractual obligation because EU is releasing them on the 10th.

Most likely it's because it requires the Awakening update, and Gameforge is probably releasing that update on the 10th while our region gets it on the 17th. (JP TERA is getting it on the 11th. Don't see the date for RU yet, but based on when they released male brawler, probably they'll get this one on the 18th.)

This is correct. The items are tied to builds, and EU is releasing on the 10th, we release on the 17th.

I demand a rematch @seandynamite This time, make it even harder to find.

Oh trust me, this was just a pilot to see if anyone would even participate. Now that I know how participation is AND how good y'all are at finding it, next time will be significantly more difficult. Maybe. I can't underestimate your skills!
Hello!

I just hid a Sign of Day 24-sign in game on every server in the same spot. On this sign is a group code. That group code will give you stuff. You have 24 hours to find it from right...... now.

The code on the sign will expire at 11:59 PM PDT on Sunday, April 1.

Be cool. Don't share the code. Help others with hints, but make them find it. After all, YOU went through all the work to find it! So can they.

My hints:
I can see the city of Highwatch from where I am. It sure is pretty. (Yes, that means it's in Highwatch)
While in the same location on every server, it's not necessarily in the same channel.

Good luck!

No no no no no no no no no no o o o o o o o o o o o....


We need them NOW! :heart:

I would totally release them to you right now if I could.
For any planning purposes you may need it for, though, it won't be changing much this month. It will continue on the same pattern established in March; with April 1 starting with Corsairs Stronghold and rotating daily with Fraywind throughout the month.
We dont' have off for the holidays and it will be posted by EOD on Friday.
These will be available after Godsfall releases on April 17th.
EME does not control whether we have the talent system and the response we have gotten from BHS is that there is no plan to bring it to other territories, as I previously stated.
There are no plans still to bring the talent sytem to NA or EU.
I will answer the question re: more fashion coupon updates. The first, and arguably biggest update is now done and we are moving onto other projects/store/shop/elite status updates before returning to it. We will come back to do more but we have other more pressing things to move our focus to for the time being. We don’t currently have an ETA; I also just want to say thanks to @CobaltDragon for all the hard work he put in already on part 1!
Yes they are
There are two new items in the store today:
  • Stylist Select Hair Coupon (New Hairstyles) - Cannot be used by amani, popori, and baraka. Select the all-new style that's right for you! Use this coupon to select and change your hairstyle into a hairstyle suitable for your race and gender. Result cannot be reverted. For elin characters, modifies both hair and tail.
  • Premium Stylist Hair Coupon (Classic Hairstyles) - Cannot be used by baraka. Select the classic style that's right for you! Use this coupon to select and change your hairstyle into a hairstyle suitable for your race and gender. Result cannot be reverted. Cannot be used by baraka. For elin characters, modifies both hair and tail. For popori characters, modifies the tail only.
These are the non-RNG versions of the hairstyle coupons - you get the one you choose. HOWEVER please note that the UI still acts as though it's a roll. However you choose the one hairstyle you want, and that's the one it lands on. So though it shares the RNG interface, it will always land on the ONE hairstyle you can pick. The Stylist Select will give you access to the new hairstyles (the web store link above has links to videos of each race/gender combination's hairstyle examples) and the Premium Stylist will give you access to the hairstyles that were available when you created the character only.
Tomorrow - look for them after maintenance in the store.
We'll look into the message popup - not sure how that triggers so it'll take a bit of investigation. But sounds like 9 PM EDT was the winner winner chicken dinner.
The game is alive and well - don't believe the armchair data scientists that don't have any real information. I have access to the actual login numbers. Folks that say otherwise are just seeding unrest or making conjecture-based statements.
Hahahah not sure wth happened. I agree - I think Tikat is drunk on green beer. We'll sort it out this week and get him back on the wagon.
There were no adjustments on the server time to when Civil Unrest kicks off - so yes, like the dungeon resets/elite resets/etc.. it should kick off 1 hour later during daylight savings time. So as stated by @Ayi - 6 pm PDT/9 pm EDT
I was looking forward to this today! I want my Babydoll Sucker Punch hair :D Haha any idea when it will be released?

My goal is to have the non-RNG versions released next week. Planning around how the RNG versions could be distributed is ongoing. But basically, the non-RNG will be released to the cash shop, the RNG will be added as rewards in game via events or some other distribution occasionally.
Closing this thread now as the changes we wanted to make are complete. We will open up the conversation for further updates to the store when we time permits us to continue working on it. Please watch future patch notes for any additions/removals/changes that may occur.
I'll say this much - I was not comfortable releasing the RNG version of the boxes for sale - the delay in releasing them is directly tied to the decision to NOT release an RNG hairstyle coupon to the cash shop.

Explanations for new hairstyles (from Tera EU) :

Use the "Meruma's Hairstyle" or "Meruma's Magic Hairstyle" voucher. You can trade Fashion Coupons for them or buy them in the TERA Shop.
Now you will see a preview of the seven hairstyles that are available for your character.
Click "Confirm". A hairstyle will then be chosen at random and a voucher removed from your inventory.
Meruma's Hairstyle (available for Fashion Coupons) immediately applies the new hairstyle. From that moment, you will be restyled and will have this hairstyle until you repeat the process or use a voucher to change your appearance.
Meruma's Magic Hairstyle (available in the TERA Shop) allows you to choose whether you want to apply the new hairstyle immediately or keep your current one. The voucher is used in either case.


(https://en.tera.gameforge.com/news/detail/preview-the-male-brawler)

Why wasn't this included in the post? Why do we have to keep getting information from other publishers and from those who translate information from KTera?

But other than that, I hope the UI optimization and revitalized loot tables will spice things up.

We have not yet announced how we will be selling and/or distributing the hair coupons. This will be announced separately.
Starting at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 11, Daylight Savings Time kicks in once more, and so a few key TERA systems will restart at 5 a.m. PDT (rather than 4 a.m.) on and after March 12:
  • Calendar reward eligibility
  • Vanguard Initiative reset times
  • Guild quest reset times
  • Dungeon entry reset times
  • Elite Status Bar reset times

Don’t forget to set your clocks forward, too!

Also, please note that I tried to account for Daylight Savings Time when setting up the BG Jackpot Events, so times should remain the same on your clock and not shift.
I'm happy to see y'all liked them! We weren't sure if you would so we put them in the calendar to gauge the response. I'm sure you haven't seen the last of them.
> @JXE5356AKE said:
> Grid 2.0 comes with awakening, I doubt that is soon. Grid 1.0 was removed way earlier on the Korean timeline though, before RKE I believe. So we're likely getting it yoinked without notice.

The “Awakening” update comes in April to NA.
What @counterpoint said is true - this is not indicative of how we will be selling ALL items going forward. But it is a way we can sell some things, and I'm so happy that everyone is reacting positively to it.
NikuroTega wrote: »
Maybe now BHS can focus more on the second part of class awakening!

It was already on the roadmap in KR - so this has no effect on it.
I'll be perfectly frank regarding Gridiron and Champion's Skyring:

Gridiron is getting a revamp soon and we'll focus back on it when it's more relevant (in the hopes it is more relevant, that is)

Champion's Skyring has had too many issues with being exploited for the rewards (mainly via organized throwing of matches), so adding jackpots to them needs to happen on a very shortly timed and monitored basis going forward (if we want to be able to add better jackpots, like I believe this one to be). Feedback is being passed back to the devs to work on that, but for the meantime that's just how it will be. We will try to work on a way to do this (we actually are working on an idea already but requires a CM to help).
@seandynamite @CobaltDragon

Hey, guys, I KNOW you've been working hard. Just wondering about the FC update that was supposed to happen in February.

Thank you for your hard work. I know it's a tough job.

(Sort of sarcasm, sort of not.)

edIt: I'm a derp and missed the sticky, but I'll leave it up so you can both make fun of me.

I'll just let it live here forever.
For the month of March we are switching up some things.

First, we will only be setting 2 BGs on the calendar to swap out everyday. Fraywind Canyon and Corsairs' Stronghold (both versions) will rotate everyday as listed in this fancy Excel calendar:

Capture.PNG

Second, we are changing up what you can get in the jackpot. Jackpots in featured battlegrounds award one of the following:t:
  • Emeralds x5
  • Superior Etching Box x1
  • Champions Enchanting Box x1
  • Precious Gem Box x1
  • Dragon Scales x2

Battleground jackpots start at 10 a.m. PST and end at 9:59 a.m. PST the following morning, when the highlighted battleground switches to the next one. Remember, March 11th marks the beginning of Daylight Savings Time here in NA, so that day, I adjusted the event to run so the times SHOULDN'T change.
I care. Question answered - thread closed.
Closing the thread as OP suggested - it's a good idea.

[...] Also, we need to identify if the one we have found is a permanent versions, a 30-Day versions, a 7-Day versions, a 3-Day versions, or 1-Day versions, to ensure we're adding the one that we intend.

I hope the one you guys intend, is the permanent one.
Please be the permanent one...

Yeah, lol.
It wouldn't be very nice to add in new skins / costumes that have never been seen before, just to make them Single Day versions with a large fashion coupon cost. ;)

What if we added the temporary ones at a lower cost on some of them though? How would folks feel about that?
I'd like to clear this up though - back in October I said we would commit to adding these to the product roadmap and accomplishing them. I did NOT give a solid timeline nor did I say they'd all be done in the next couple months. So it's been 4 months - we removed Fed bills and moved all the items to another shop because it was yet ANOTHER currency that had no intent or meaning behind it; we are finalizing what may be the first of a few updates to Fashion Coupon shop for today/tomorrow/Wednesday (not sure which day - all based on prioritized workload for our small team).

I understand it feels like an eternity and I can't speak for what happened from prior Product Managers or CMs, but THIS TEAM is working hard on it (and especially @CobaltDragon - he will be hailed as a hero when this is done).

I just wanted to give that update as well. My attempt at being transparent about what we are working on and what we plan on working on is backfiring in that there is an entitled expectation that this is ALL we are working on, which obviously couldn't be further from the truth. Regardless of what tools it takes to do it and how fast it is to enter the items (which, btw, is a horribly manual process - don't for a second think it's "easy" to do, even if it doesn't require a build).

Assumptions about how "easy" or "difficult" a task can be is based PURELY ON SPECULATION. Unless you have worked at EME and used the tools we use and walked a mile in our shoes, you probably shouldn't make assessments about how long something takes.

I've said it before and I'll say it again,

Patience, young padawans. All will be OK.
I for one am glad that they have gem boxes in the shop. I just wish they would keep them. ive always said that they need some sort of gold voucher in the cash shop so we can buy gold.

If gold is purchasable (rather than created in game by effort,) it destroys the economy. F2P games, at least healthy ones, are supported by all the players, not just the spenders.

If you remove the incentive for spenders to interact with free players, then the economy goes belly up very quickly. There is no incentive to bring cosmetics/vouchers/mounts into the game for other players. Free players who farm 4-5 hours cannot compete with a quick purchase of 100k gold. The final death knell is the actual injection of gold into the economy causing inflation.

Permanent Gem boxes would totally destructive for TERA.
The decision to release this item was made between BHS and myself, Player Council had no impact nor were they consulted, as @counterpoint said. It is based on an item that KTERA and other territories have released. This is not an EME only item. Just to be clear.

Oh so this ham-fisted idea was your brainchild? That makes so much more sense now.

LOL
While we are always watching CCU, we have not made any plans or announcements regarding server merges.
FWIW I have been conducting user interviews and research on how I could better make Elite useful by focusing on multiple player types (such as brand new players, leveling players, PvP players, dungeon players, etc...) and coming up with lists of things that focus on each player type. Unfortunately, many of the things are tied to what I can get from existing items/buffs (requesting new features/items takes quite a bit of time) but I will be looking to do a relaunch of TERA Elite Status soon. In the meantime, I think the consumables box and elite gift box probably can use some updating, along with a new mount. Mount changes are relatively easy, though I'll dispel that we will be giving dragons or phoenix (or flight suits for that matter - that has multiple requirements and makes it really difficult to give out) but there's a plethora of other mounts. And I agree with an earlier post, they need refreshes more often than they are getting now.

Oh good.

So judging by the fact that you said in game shops would be addressed in October, and it is now days from March and we still have had zero shops actually changed (and all that happened was it was moved, and then deleted,) we should expect elite box changes sometime in 2019 right?

I speak sarcasm too, so yes. Expect it in 2019, @CassandraTR - hold your breath while you're at it.

on a different note, @counterpoint , did eme ask the player council what their opinion was concerning gem boxes before they brought them out to the store? if so, what did you guys say about it?
Since there's no community rep for TERA PC right now, there's very little dialog with Player Council. There was no consultation on gem boxes.

The decision to release this item was made between BHS and myself, Player Council had no impact nor were they consulted, as @counterpoint said. It is based on an item that KTERA and other territories have released. This is not an EME only item. Just to be clear.

@Zoknahal how about you leave my daily & rep bonuses alone just cause you don't need them does not mean they do not help people who are smart enough to find a use for them. Only reason I pay for elite honestly, and for a mount elite should NOT be a flight suit or Dragon/Phoenix.

The only reason why someone would farm the old dailies, would be for the hats to be honest, hats that you can currently get through the fashion coupons, ever since they were introduced into the Federation Bill shop, and now since its going out of business, you can get them through the Fashion Coupons for the time being.

If you however are after the Black Panther mount, then elite would make it a lot faster to get because you need a specific item from each reputation vendor. But currently, its a 275 mount, and being realistic, with flying mounts around, and one you can get for free at lvl 65, no one would be interested in a ground mount with a 275 speed, only for the looks and maybe earning yourself some legacy item, which again, is not anymore, since the actual legacy version of that mount, had a 280 speed. I honestly do not see any use for the old jewelry that the old reputation merchants sell.

Elite has to have something attractive for players that wish to pay for it. Having outdated benefits that only work with outdated content, is not attractive for players seeking a QoL benefit for end game, such as doubling the rewards for Vanguards for being elite. In the long run, speaking from a business standpoint, EME would make more money by making elite more attractive to this specific part of the playerbase, rather than keeping it the way it is, and constantly getting threads like this to implore for a change on Elite.

I believe there is a plan for a stream next week.

I'm an idiot. Yes. 19 is correct. editing like it never happened.
Let me clear that up -

1. Similar to what we did with Eliin Gunner launch, you will NOT be able to gender/race change to the Male Brawler at launch. You will have to create a new character and level it. Similarly, that restriction will not be permanent.
2. Character slots are being raised to 19 - if you log in during the first week after the launch you will get a character slot for free (this is also like we did for Elin Gunner launch)
Added a new known issue - RSS feed on launcher looks crazy.
Maintenance is over! yay!
Yeah sorry updating the news post - it's 195. I had to change the price at the last minute and it didn't get communicated through to the staged news post.
Server status page will be unavailable until it gets ported into the new site.
Hello all!

Today our faithful web team has launched a new version of the TERA website, which includes features pertaining to the XBONE and PS4 console versions of the game (as well as offering a mobile responsive version of the site!). As such, I wanted to give you some info about the launch state of the site:
  • Product Roadmap will be brought back into the site (for the time being, I will create a new Discussion in the News and Announcements section that will get pinned and updated until we get a site version)
  • Server Status page will be brought back into the site
  • Older news posts - the site will launch with all the most recent news posts, but the entire list of old entries will not be imported into the new site format
  • Guides - some guides will be going away, and some will be getting facelifts over the coming months to make them more agnostic to platform version
  • Patch Notes - patch notes will be posted in a new TERA PC Patch Notes forum - the latest will be pinned as an announcement to the top
  • In-game Welcome Window - this page will be broken for a little bit while the web team rewrites the code to feed the page

New site probably means some bugs here and there, and our team will be bug-squashing as they work through that and other feature requests. We appreciate your patience as we work to keep up with it all!

-seandynamite
Hey all! We got a bit of snow up here in Seattle this morning and that delayed some folks from being able to start maintenance. As such, servers will be brought down at 9 a.m. PST (logins have already been turned off) and maintenance will be extended until 12 p.m. PST (though hopefully we'll still meet the original 11 a.m. PST time.
Yes we'll post a full event schedule prior to the build going live
We haven't received the final version of the build yet so I can't give you an definitive answer. HOWEVER, in our current version, both items (the elemental essence and the fragment item that awards emeralds) are in the loot table for the Hard Mode version.

When the patch notes publish before the build goes live you should get a definitive answer.
This thread is devolving into bashing EME and or BHS and I'll go ahead and close it now. @CobaltDragon @SingleBear and I are working on the shop update.

Is it just me, or are the rewards for this current Guardian Legion event kinda, lower, than what we expected? I remember, looking at the event calendar in weeks past, and talking with some friends about how we were gonna spam this guardian legion stuff for this week together. Now that they've seen the extra rewards, the most common response I get is "why bother?".

I think maybe a x1.5 or x2 bonus to the actual guardian legion credits themselves would've been neat. But beyond that, I find that the content is actually very rewarding in itself (honestly, I feel like increasing the gem box drop amount whatsoever would be overkill). However, the biggest complaint I hear about it is the immense amount of time it can take if you're not geared to the teeth and overly proficient at whatever class you're using. So maybe, increasing the actual points acquisition instead of the actual drops would make for a more attractive event?

Honestly, I can't speak for other servers, but I did the content on my home server of Fey Forest on and off throughout the day today and it seemed to me like there was about the same if not less people doing it than what I'd seen in the past few weeks at similar times. I understand that this is a week long event, and so it wouldn't make sense for it to have excessive "once in a year chance" kind of rewards, but it just doesn't feel like theres much of an event going on at all atm.


Thanks for the feedback on it - we will be running those kinds of events in the future as well - this is one of those "some folks will get a lot of use out of it, some won't" kind of events, so we're trying as many different things as we can (that don't break the servers, that is) to see what works and what doesn't.

I have a feeling you'll see those double-type events in the near future, but just wanted to say thanks for the feedback.
Oh I'll snuff out the conspiracies - this week's patch/maintenance has nothing to do with Fashion Coupon shop updates. That can be done live while the servers are up with our GM Tool. The maintenance this week is going to patch some server crash issues.

See? I'm helpful!
Ahhhhhh the monthly "Is TERA dead?" post - I was wondering if we'd see you come up in February.

And I finally have an answer: "No. It's not."

If the post was meant more to focus on the "Will BHS improve TERA?" part, then I also have an answer: "Yes. They will."
Actually Feb. 31st. Get it right.

;)
We turned on today's event and made this post, in case you missed it:

http://tera.enmasse.com/news/posts/guardian-legion-bonus-rewards
http://tera.enmasse.com/news/posts/guardian-legion-bonus-rewards
Oh dang - just an oversight! Discounting now!
As I said, items that were left out of the event due to it's poor performance will be added either to a later event or to next month's calendar! Thanks!
PERMANENT! It's bankable as long as you don't equip it.

Well folks, the TERA Allegiance event is a complete and total enigma as to how and when it wants to work, so we are abandoning it for this weekend's event. BUT DON'T PANIC! We don't want you to walk away from the weekend empty-handed!

We have decided that instead of requiring cumulative time to distribute the daily rewards we promised, we are just going to mail them to you on first login for each day. Unfortunately, due to the ability to trade/sell/exploit many of the over-all rewards, we had to remove many of them from this event (with the exception of Dragon Scales, which we TRIPLED in quantity over the course of the weekend). However we will make those up by adding or increasing the calendar rewards for those items on next month's calendar where we can. As such, here is the structure and rewards you can look forward to:

From 3 PM PST today, Friday, 2/16, until 3 AM PST on Saturday, 2/17 [that's 12 hours from when we kick it off] you will receive in your parcel mail, within a few minutes of logging in:
  • Valkyon Health Potion x 3
  • Friendly Feast x 2
  • Friendly Noctenium Infusion x 400
  • Apothecary Dye x 1
  • Strong Bravery Potion x 2
  • Superior Noctenium Elixir x 1
  • Dragon Scale x 3

From 3 AM PST on Saturday, 2/17 until 3 AM PST on Sunday, 2/18 [that's 24 hours] you will receive in your parcel mail, within a few minutes of logging in:
  • Valkyon Health Potion x 3
  • Friendly Feast x 2
  • Friendly Noctenium Infusion x 400
  • Apothecary Dye x 1
  • Strong Bravery Potion x 2
  • Superior Noctenium Elixir x 1
  • Dragon Scale x 3

From 3 AM PST on Sunday, 2/18 until 3 AM PST on Monday, 2/19 [that's 24 hours] you will receive in your parcel mail, within a few minutes of logging in:
  • Valkyon Health Potion x 3
  • Friendly Feast x 2
  • Friendly Noctenium Infusion x 400
  • Apothecary Dye x 1
  • Strong Bravery Potion x 2
  • Superior Noctenium Elixir x 1
  • Dragon Scale x 3

In addition to celebrate the year of the dog, on your first login after 3 PM PST today, Friday, 2/16, until 3 AM PST on Monday, 2/19, you will receive in your parcel mail, within a few minutes of logging in:
  • Puppy Mask x 1
  • Pound Puppy Box x 1

If you don't get them the exact minute you log in, give it a few minutes, we've seen that sometimes the tool will send them one minute apart, so it could take up to 15 or 20 minutes to get all your goodies.

One last note: you may have noted that we have removed the Jiangshi hat accessory from this event; we will instead add it to a different future event.

Sorry for the last minute pivot but I have to give mad props to @SingleBear for testing, shifting, testing, proposing ideas, looking for solutions, testing, and finally executing.
Wouldn't be so bad if THE DANG EVENTS WORKED AS INTENDED.
The event (when we bend it to our will and make it work) will be for any level characters.

You never said which year! B)

This is so true.
What's happening? This...

Unfortunately, even with some creative work trying to point tools to work at other environments, TERA Allegiance event is still not running on live. We are now looking into ways to make this work using other means. More to follow...

"The Asian...?" ...what do you mean by that?

Also, that is a terrible f*cking attitude to have. There are Asians, south-east Asians, Asian-Americans, and Asian-Canadians that play this game... tons of them. Many in my guild (even some Brazilian-Asians!)

Just because you don't celebrate something doesn't mean it's not important to someone else, or that they can't have an opinion about it because you don't. Terrible attitude you have.

@seandynamite

The event is still not working.

We are aware and working on it - I have posted an announcement post that we will update as we gain more information - currently it is working on internal test environments but not on live so we're trying to track down whatever technical glitch is blocking it.

UPDATE: The event is running as intended on our test environments but for some reason won't trigger on live. We are still looking into the technical issues that could be causing this.

There, now it's CobaltDragon!

totally not halfassed edit huehue

You just won the internet.
We are currently looking into why the event did not trigger at the appropriate time this morning - @SingleBear or I will update this thread as soon as we have more information (or if we can just kick the stupid thing into working).

I screwed it up so I fixed it. :#
I currently have 3 level 65s - and working on my 4th (nothing compared to some of you, but I'm no slouch). So not sure where you get information that we don't play the game. I play every chance I get, so say hi to Dark.Gunny on CH if you get a chance.

Also, the streams aren't going away; as has been pointed out, we are currently looking for a CM to backfill the void left by Spacecats. Until then, Singlebear and I will do them when we can, but our time is filled working on getting v66, v67, v68, Fashion Coupon store updates (NOT GOING AWAY BTW), In game Events, BG calendar, item releases, product sales, dungeon highlights, Steam products, new starter packs, elite status updates, and about a million other things done. So please, believe me when I say we are not idly sitting around. We put in long hours and long weeks, but we are a small team and even one vacancy leaves a gap. Soon it will be filled and it will be back to normal and we'll all rejoice. Til then, patience, my young padawans.

Heh...

It wasn't a patch change that they got automatically, but something they manually enabled (hence it being off the patch schedule). So, partial credit, I guess.

What he said - it had nothing to do with any patch. It was a setting enforced by our tools. Today we removed the setting.
As of today race change vouchers will allow castanic and high elf female gunners to covert their character to the most recent addition to TERA: the Elin Gunner!

You can get vouchers from the in-game store or here.
Not sure where I am "pretending to be magnanimous"... I'm merely outlining a schedule of events as I said I would this week. If being magnanimous is following through on that...

I'm talking about EME in general. Not specifically you, (the decision to remove something and hand it out piecemeal as a reward is asinine.)
You'll be happy to read the Development Roadmap! As voted on, Fashion Coupon shop is up next and due for an update this month.

Oh thank you so much! (sarcasm.)

You brought that up 5 months ago. You'll implement it now. Great, thanks. Meanwhile, Spacecats was told about it almost 2 years ago: http://www.teradevtracker.com/?topic=/forums/general-discussion/topics/Fashion-Coupon-Store-Before-and-Now
I appreciate you guys tracking all this down and posting screenshots. Some of these weapon skins look really sweet. We're going to check with Bluehole and see what the deal is with some of these. With any luck we'll be able to get them in our version, but it depends on their response.

That was on 04/06/2016, 08:57 AM We hear nothing, and the thread was deleted, just like your in game shop update thread.

Can you at least recognize that we are feeling like you (EME) don't listen to our concerns at all? This may not be the case from your perspective, but it is how it looks from ours.

I do recognize that @CassandraTR - we are trying to execute on our promises and I understand your frustration. It's just as frustrating for me/us when we feel like we aren't coming through for all of you. I just keep in mind that we are doing our best to meet the needs of the audience, but everything takes prioritization, resources, and time, all of which are limited. So believe me when I tell you that you are heard.
>.< how..? what..? more diversity by reducing vg rewards? really?!

this direction eme has chosen gives less and less diversity, because you cant really choose what u will do ingame on a given day... you will have to do the event eme thinks u should be doing or simply not get the stuff you need to progress....

silver talents for example... grind 1-4 pieces of them for each dgn/ghillie run or just do strongbox event and get 6000 of em?
i'd say stop with events alltogether and make those 6000 pieces reachable through regular play....

I agree with Cassandra though, it is pointless talking about it, eme doesnt care and silly sheep will say it's all ok...

I agree with you 100%. I don't understand. We've had a cash shop event/sale every month since Arsenal IN OCTOBER. At the same time @seandynamite said he would update the various in game shops, and so far the only thing that has happened was to move one shop to the other, and delete it. Nothing for Ace. Nothing for VG. Friendship Token shop.

There are so many other things that they could work on or fix, yet we have something taken away and then given back as a "prize."

EU just got FI/FIHM back a second time. We didn't even get it the first time because they skipped those implementations.

I'm really saddened and disheartened with all of this this. I just gave you guys (EME) $50 yesterday. I won't be doing that again.

You'll be happy to read the Development Roadmap! As voted on, Fashion Coupon shop is up next and due for an update this month.
@seandynamite

I am sincerely disappointed that this is your decided outcome. Not like anyone will care.

You've taken something away, and decided to dole it back out, pretending to be magnanimous.

Ace Dungeon still has Imperator VM mats. You could have updated that at any time to include things like dragon scales, artisan kits, or dyad/smart dyad niveot structures.

I know you could have updated that because you promised us almost 5 months ago that you would: http://www.teradevtracker.com/?topic=which-in-game-shop-would-you-like-to-see-updated-first

(You can't delete everything, we'll find it.)

You guys are tone deaf.

nice ''Event'' make something look special even tho we had it normal for the past months/year :joy:
just turn it back like it was and be done with this foolishness

also no Lunar Newyear sale like last year?

i didn't include any sales information on this - this is specifically game events.
Hello all!

As promised last week I have a calendar of events that I just posted as a news post on the site - there is also a more visual calendar update coming as soon as the creative team can get some time, but I wanted to call attention to the events that start tonight with resets at 3 am PST!

Starting at 3 a.m. PST on Tuesday February 6, players will earn double the Vanguard rewards and reputation from Vanguard Requests. Plus, we’re adding 400 Artisan Refining Kits to the rewards for the following Island of Dawn Vanguard Requests:
  • Hunt Brutal Naga Battlemasters
  • Hunt Brutal Iron Giants
  • Hunt Brutal Onyx Hydraths

These rewards will last until Saturday, February 10 at 3 a.m. PST, when we TRIPLE the Vanguard rewards and reputation until Tuesday, February 13 at 3 a.m. PST.

We will have more information about the events throughout the month, but I wanted to get this out there as soon as I could!

We are asking how they are bringing back this content from BHS. In the past this was not something we were allowed to mess with, so I'm interested to know how this is being done as much as you.
In the past we have released prior years' summer costumes during the summer festival, so I can't see a reason why we wouldn't this summer as well.

It's possible they could come back during Anniversary as well in May, but that isn't as sure.

That is working correctly. The "bonus rewards" are only available on the non-repeatable quest - so you can do it each day.
Meta and Entro Emblem shops are strictly controlled by the design team.

Thanks for the reply but what I want to know is if there will be double vanguard reward for solo content such as IoD (like x2 tokens) or not. Or else, if there's a schedule out there or not.

No schedule posted yet, but we will get one posted early next week in a news post announcement. We had the rug pulled out on a few event plans and the tool was giving us issues, so we spent this week scrambling to test events that we can use and pivoting on our plans to try to get things in place that we can deliver on - I don't want to post a calendar and only execute on half of it.

That said, this weekend kicks off events running throughout the month (during weekdays and weekends, I don't mean that to sound like it's just on the weekends).

-s
We will be running a double reward Vanguard rewards event and triple Vanguard rewards event this month (and no, I don't mean the last day of the month :p )
To clarify, the only thing that changed here was the UI - we moved the tokens you we already added from the bonus section to the base rewards section. The main reason is this: we can't add more than one bonus item event to anything at a time. So, these "bonus" 1350 metamorphic emblems were blocking us from being able to add actual bonus items to events like we wanted to. Now that they've moved, we are able to run events where we can add actual bonus items, not just supplementary rewards.

In reference to the double item xp guardian mission, that is also an event that we will run from time to time, but we have no intention of turning it on as a permanent setting at this time. And when I say time to time, I mean we'll see the first event later this month.
