TERA PC - General Discussion: Just one more player...
I'm not the average player... I don't grind dungeons nor worry about end game content. This game (as others have been in the past) was just a means to wind down after work. I make a decent living and actually enjoy being able to buy in-game items that I fancy. After just 8 months of play doing almost exclusively solo content; my account is Tier 8. Do the math. Friends and family ask me, "How can you spend money on pixels?" My reply is usually something like, "Well I don't drink alcohol, how much do you spend at cocktail lounges in a year?"

Anyway none of that is really important, I just added a short bio so EME/Bluhole could read about another player leaving the game due exclusively to the resident data gathering application they added. I've been around tech long enough to be wary of any swinging door on my system/network.

If I can make purchases with my hard earned in money in the game AND there's a portal for data gathering included in the game... that IS a vulnerability. It doesn't matter what EME's intentions are nor how reputable the XIGNCODE3 owners claim to be; a door is a door is a door. I'm not going to follow the lemmings off the cliff.

When I can finally log back in today I'm going to find a lucky player and give them thousands of gems, talents, plates, gold and then queue all my characters up for deletion.

Anyway, like a said...I doubt anyone cares. I just wanted to document cause and effect.

Hi! Let's be friends!
couldn't you just use a different pc that doesn't have tera loaded on it, and buy from the store that way? or is the daily deals only through the game itself? idk cause I haven't downloaded last weeks patch or anything

...are you serious?

Just use another PC? ...

Yes. We all have separate PC's that we use for a game. Aren't you the one that always talks about your unique situation?

C'mon.

I mentioned that to them because they talk about how much money they spend in tera. also I know of people that go online with their phones. I only have my 1 laptop, and no phone, but I know of many that have more than 1 pc and phone. so if the op brags about how much they spend on tera, then it stands to reason that maybe they do have more than 1 pc or a phone they can go online with.
leave yourself a door to get back in
3yrs ago i thought i came to a point im giving up tera for good, gave all away, npced rest aaand came back 2 months ago because i just wanted to see where did tera go to within those 3 years also missed abit of the combat system and theres literally sht out there in mmo genre....took me 1,5 month to rebuild, do not make my mistake, who knows, maybe You in a year or so gonna feel like giving it a try one "last" time
a friendly note, ofc you are eligible to do whatever you please :)

Are Americans assuming you are really that paranoid if you pron history is gathered. Damn you must watch some sick things for you to actually fear this app. If you are paranoid if your Credit card # will be gathered by Blue hole, then use another PC.

As for me I have nothing to hide because I use another machine to do some private things on the internet. If you know what I mean.

Also if your on CH lets be friends :)

Yes... yes, we are.

In fact, depending on who you ask, an American who's not paranoid is suspicious as [filtered].

Lol,
No not paranoid... just making a point that the player base shouldn't have been blindsided by a data gathering software added to the game. I made the $$ references not to brag...as that one D'bag suggested, but to leave an example of cause and effect to EME. Though I'm certain they don't really care. Be well all..have a good day.

Earlier tonight someone else sold off all their stuff really cheap and left the game too. Feels bad man. Happy travels.

Holy crap. I just wish someone would just approach me randomly and trade me all of a sudden and then put 2m gold on it. Hey I can dream cant I.
I quit the game before the June 7th patch. I couldn't risk having XIGNCODE running wild on my system scanning files and sending god knows what back to korea for inspection.

What i'm saying is, don't delete your characters. Just quit the game, and maybe if EME somehow survives, they may remove this rootkit, and then it'll be safe to play the game again.

Mind you this is unlikely because it will probably be too late by that time and the damage will be done. The population base of this game is fragile and lost a chunk of its longitme players.

You kinda sound like a semi mid sized whale, which is not the type of person they want to lose. I was a light whale, i spent maybe a few hundred a year on the store and a few months of elite randomly across 2 accounts.

I think hardcore whales though could keep this game running for a bit longer, they will gladly let viruses infect their PCs because their addiction is so strong they can't control themselves. I was addicted for sure but the risk to my PC and personal files from damage and theft was an easy push to quit.
