TERA PC - General Discussion: Im sure ill get flamed, but Ill come back when/if TERA gets rid of the moronic gender locked b.s.
Stop locking every thing to gender and race. It's ridiculous. No matter how much ridiculous fanboys pretend it isn't a problem, you can google this issue and see how many people wont play because of this ridiculous practice. I bought this game when it came when it had a sub fee and every thing. Oh well. You got my money once. Guess that's all you needed, right? So sad.
P.S. im aware this post has been made 1000 times before mine. That should tell you something though.
Take it up with k-Tera who actually develops the game. EnMasse and Bluehole cannot do anything about the genderlock.
It cracks me up how there are hundreds of way more pressing issues that threaten the longevity of TERA, but you think the worst thing is that you're forced to play a girl for some classes that aren't even relevant anymore. The gender locks happen because it allows them to create new classes in timely manners, if you want extremely high quality dev work where they can dedicate one entire team entirely to making a new class, you're just gonna have to play an MMO with a bigger budget.

but it seem no be a problem in black desert :3
Googling it and seeing that "many people say it's a problem" is as conclusive as taking this forum's opinion as the absolute truth about the game.

A vocal minority doesn't stop being a minority, it's just louder. That's what makes the problem seem so gigantic when it definitely is not. Having paid for the game makes sadly no difference in opinion importance either, no need to play that card nor the "I've been here since beta".

Like I always say, I'm all in for halfassing it already and just copy pasting all classes to all races and removing/reworking that one or two animations that are too girly for men (...or femani). But regardless of my bias to liking playing with girls cause cute, it just isn't what is keeping people from playing TERA. Dare I say, if it was locked to males instead THEN it would be a bigger issue, but still not the biggest.

The game's starting area isn't attractive anymore (and this is something I've seen in practice when bringing people to the game, they put up with that Stepstone Island... or not), the leveling is a bulldoze to 65 where new players don't learn anything, and hit that exponential difficulty increase which either turns them away from the game, or they "git gud" and grind till they're bored cause that's what you do.
Returning players either experience the starting zone issue when making a fresh char or they hit the grind thing and remember why they left.
Ok bye, have a nice life dood...may we never see you again cause that stuff ain happening
All girs play girls all males play girls, all traps play girls all kids play girls. All cats play girls

So where i put my money if where them. On girs for sure thats why genderlocked wins sadly but true
