Hi everyone,

Please note the following:

Free Character Slots
- Character Slots will be postponed to tomorrow morning at 11 AM
- You will be received 8 character slots in your item claim

Fate of CH
- The decision will be made before character slots given tomorrow
- We will do joint messaging for CH's fate and character slot information

Deleted Characters
- Deleted character info prior to the merge is not saved
- This means that if you delete your character before the merge, you will not be able to get that character back after the merge
- If you know you have a deleted character that you wish to keep, put in your support ticket NOW

Questions from Stream that were unanswered:
"Do we keep spots saved in travel journal?"
- Yes, those locations remain saved on the new Server.

"Do you lose your friends/friendship-bonds when you transfer?"
- Existing friends and friendship-bonds will remain, however please note that both friends and friendship-bonds can be effected by players needing to delete a character, in order to stay under their Account's Character Slot maximum on the merged server.

"If an entire guild is transferring and CH ends up not getting merged, are we getting screwed out of our guild level"
- If the players on CH leave their Guild and utilize the free Server Transfers, there would not be a way to keep the existing Guild Level of the CH Guild on the other Server these players choose to move to.

PVE:

PVP:
TERA’s server merge is fast approaching, and because this isn’t our first rodeo, we know you’ll want to know what’s happening to your characters, guilds, inventory, and more.

This list should answer most server merge questions, but as always, if you have an issue that’s not addressed here—and please: read the entire list first—you can always contact En Masse Customer Support. We will also take questions about the server merge on our Friday, September 7 Twitch stream.

Q: Which servers will merge?

Mount Tyrannas and Fey Forest will merge to become a new (PVP65) server.
Ascension Valley and Tempest Reach will merge to become a new (PVE) server.
Celestial Hills will remain its own separate (PVE) RP server.


Q: When will the servers be merged?

The official merge date is Tuesday, September 18. We’re going to start the process at 7 a.m. PDT. During this time, the servers will not be accessible.

Q: TL;DR - What can I do to prepare?

You are not required to do anything, but there are certainly some things we recommend you do to ensure you have a safe and easy merge:
· Delete (or transfer) any characters you don’t need. Character slots on the new servers will be limited to the highest number of slots unlocked on either of the merging servers. For example: If you have a total of 4 character slots on Fey Forest, and 9 on Mount Tyrannas, you will have a total of 9 slots on the new server.
· Having too many characters on a server will prevent you from entering the game with any character. Once the servers merge, you will be required to delete additional characters until you reach your new character limit.
· If you do choose to delete characters before the merge, make sure you save non-bound items and gold to your account bank before you delete them! Also, if at all possible, you should avoid deleting any character you have spent money to outfit, level, or costume.
· Start planning backup character names. While we wish we could promise your name will not be taken, you could abruptly find yourself needing to think of a new name.
· Make sure your guild has active players in it—and that the members don’t plan on deleting characters who are in the guild. Remember that guilds automatically disband if there are two members and one of them quits. If players delete too many guild characters, that could cause guilds to disband.
· Remove items you have listed on the trade broker before the merge. Items that you have listed on the trade broker will be merged to the new server. However, keep in mind that multiple servers' economies will be merged into one which may cause some price discrepancies.

Q: I play on multiple servers. How many character slots will I have on the new server?

The new servers will have characters slots equal to the highest number of slots on either of the merging servers (MT and FF, AV and TR). Again, players with characters on both merging servers will enter their new server with character slots equal to the highest number of character slots on either of the servers. (Remember: This is based on character slots, not actual characters.)
Example: If you have four character slots on Tempest Reach and two character slots on Ascension Valley, you’ll have four character slots on the new server (not six). If you have six characters for those four slots after the merge, you will need to remove two of them before you can start playing.
The week before the server merge, En Masse Entertainment will send every account additional character slots (amount TBD), as individual items in Item Claim. To maximize the number of available slots after the merge, use them on the server where you currently have the most characters. The maximum number of characters slots on any server is now 20, so plan accordingly.

Q: Will my extra characters be automatically deleted?

No characters will be automatically deleted during the merge. However, once the merge is complete, if you have more characters than available character slots, you will need to delete characters until you have enough available slots before you can play on that server. As a reminder, you must be logged into the game on a valid character before you can unlock an additional character slot. We recommend using all EME-granted character slots before the merge.
There is no time limit as to when you can delete the extra characters, but you will not be able to play on the merged server until you have done so. (NOTE: Characters only need to be in a deletion state, and not fully deleted, for you to enter the server. Characters level 39 or under are deleted immediately; characters level 40 and up take up to 24 hours to delete completely.)

Q: Will I need to change my name?

If two characters share the same name on merging servers, the character with the most play time will keep the contested name. If your character has less play time than another character with the same name, you will receive a tag indicating that your name must be changed (for example: “Best.Lancer.Na_1”). You will be prompted to choose a new name before logging into the server with that character.

Q: Will there be a name appeal process?

There will be no name appeal process for this server merge. We understand that no one wants to lose a character name. However, we feel that resolving name conflicts based on play time is the fairest method available.

Q: What if there are multiple guilds with the same name?

If your guild shares a name with another guild on the merged server, your guild will receive a tag indicating that your guild's name must be changed. Your guild will not be disbanded, and all memberships and guild information (ranks, level, etc) will be preserved during the merge.
Example: When the guild “Popori.Kingdom” from Ascension Valley and the guild “Popori.Kingdom” from Tempest Reach are merged onto the new server, the guild which was formed first will retain its name, and the newer one will need to change it.

Q: What happens to the GvG battle status?

The GvG status log will not be transferred.

Q: What will happen with guild wars in Civil Unrest: Velika?

The special highlights around your guild logo (gold, silver, and bronze wreaths) will not be transferred, nor will existing towers.

Q: Will I keep my friends list after the server merge?

Yes! All friends will remain unchanged. However, keep in mind that some of your friends might have changed names during the merge.

Q: What will happen to my broker items?

Your broker items will be preserved when the servers merge. Please keep in mind that merging the servers also merges the economies, so the price difference on items may be quite different. We recommend that you do not begin any new auctions before the server merge.
Items registered and sold (but awaiting confirmation) in the broker will be returned via Parcel Post. We highly recommend removing all items you have in the broker before the merge.

Q: What about my mail?

All of your mail and parcel deliveries will be preserved in the move. However, there is the possibility of messages and attached items disappearing if the sender has deleted their character. To avoid this eventuality, we recommend that you collect all items from your mailbox before the merge.

Q: Will my banks be merged?

The contents of your banks on the merging servers will be moved to a temporary bank on the new server. (Your account banks from different servers will only transfer if you have at least one character on the server where the bank items are stored.) As with character slots, the greater number of unlocked bank slots on either of the merging servers will be your total number of slots on the new server.
You will see a button at the bottom of your standard bank menu to access the temporary bank. The temporary bank has multiple tabs and tab pages to accommodate a very large number of bank items.
You can only withdraw items from the temporary bank; you cannot deposit items into the temporary bank. The temporary bank has no time limit, so you do not need to rush to make room in your standard bank.

Q: What happens to items in the bank which are bound to deleted characters?

Items which are bound to a character that gets deleted before the merge remain bound to this character. That means you will not be able to use them with another character (just as before the merge). If you try to equip them with the wrong character, these items will produce an error message which displays the character name to whom the items are bound. Creating a new character with this name will not make the items usable; they may only be equipped on the original character.We strongly recommend that you only delete characters without significant play time or purchased items.

Q: Will my wardrobe be merged?

Wardrobe Expansions and items stored in the wardrobe will be retained. The number of wardrobe slots you will have in the merged wardrobe is equal to the highest number unlocked on either merging server. If there is not enough space available for them in the merged wardrobe, up to four temporary wardrobe tabs will be added as needed. (Surplus items will be deleted.) You may only withdraw items from these temporary tabs, so we recommend that you confirm in advance whether the number of items in the wardrobe will exceed this limit.

Q: Will this affect the items in my pet’s Inventory?

The items in your pet’s inventory will not be affected by the merge. Remember that pets are bound to specific characters, so we strongly recommend that you not delete characters with Pet Pocket Inventory pets.

Q: Will this affect the items in my Item Claim?

The items in your Item Claim will not be affected by the merge.

Q: Will saved gear sets be retained in my character profile?

No, saved gear sets will not transfer over.

Q: What happens to BuddyUp Codes?

BuddyUp Codes will be reset following the server merge. However, new codes can be generated.
Friends that have already been accepted will still be visible in the list and will also receive their rewards.

Q: Will I lose my reputation/vanguard points after the merge?

No, you will not lose any reputation or other credits.

Q: Will I have to change my UI settings— skill hotkeys, window options, and so on—for each character?

Your settings for skill hotkeys, chained skills, shortcut key skills, etc. are all bound to your character and do not have to be set up again. However, UI settings such as the position of the skill bar, chat window, or the compass might need to be set again.

Q: Will special achievements be retained?

Yes, all achievements and titles will be retained.

Q: What happens to the PvP rankings?

The current state of the rankings will not be transferred.
Note: The current Battleground season (Season 2) will end on Thursday, September 13. Winners will be determined within a few days of the end of the season and will receive their reward by parcel post in game. A new season will start after the merge is complete.

Q: If I don’t want to be on a PVP Server, can I transfer to a PVE server instead, or transfer from PVE to PVP?

We hope that players will give these new servers a chance before deciding to transfer to a different one. However, we also understand that some players would prefer to be on a server with no open world PVP, while others will prefer there is open world PVP. For these players, there will be a free transfer period that allows characters to be moved from PVP to PVE, or from PVP to PVE starting on Thursday, September 6, and lasting until Monday, September 17.
Also, during this time, we will increase the maximum transferable gold from 50,000 to 100,000.
Please note that if you choose to transfer characters, your applied character slots, bank tabs, and wardrobe tabs will not be transferred.

Q: How can I contact Customer Support to get a refund on recently bought character slots?

Contact our Customer Support Team at: https://support.enmasse.com/tera and select the “2018 Server Merge” category.
The Support Ticket must contain the following information:
· Character name and server where you applied the character slot.
· The number of character slots you applied.
· An approximate date of purchase and when you applied the character slots.

Additional Info:

During the month of September, we'll be evaluating a majority of our recent events as a way to further enhance the overall experience for all players. This being the case, there will be no specific class-leveling event in September.

Letters for each loading screen:

1
Listen up, keener. It’s time for you to learn the ins and outs of being a lancer, and I’m the aman best suited for the job. So pick up your lance, and get ready to earn these rewards!

2
You want to be the best? Then you must learn the true history of the lance, instead of worrying about accessories and pretty baubles. It’s not a happy story, but it’s one every aman knows. Amani lancers were the first to ever take the field, and we did so as slaves.

3
The “Golden Empire” of the giants is the darkest period in my people’s history. We didn’t fight by choice—shields and lances were forged onto our arms, and taken off only when we died. To honor the memory of the first lancers, never lay your weapons down until all enemies are dead.

4
Every blow struck for our giant overlords, every enemy attack blocked, was for one goal only. To one day cast off our chains and kill our supposed masters. To honor the courage of the first lancers, never run from a fight, and always remember you stand at the fore to protect others.

5
Combat is a lancer’s daily fare. Eat when you can, drink when you’re thirsty, always remembering that the slaves who came before you could do neither unless they returned victorious. We are the first, best, and last line of defense against injustice.

6
The seals the giants branded into our skins made us the perfect soldiers. Fierce, unstoppable, unwavering. Our lances never dipped, our shields never broke. We learned lessons from every battle, and became the giants’ elite, if unwilling, fighting force.
Davan, our greatest hero, appealed to the gods for his people’s release. Kaia was moved by his words, and sought a way to free the Amani people from the giants’ rule. She joined the elite lancers in disguise, studying both their fighting style, and the seals that bound them.

7
Kaia learned the secrets of the slaver’s seal, but rather than wrest us away from the giant’s control, she gave the knowledge to Lok. For three long years, she fought beside us while Lok’s favored artisans, Clan Castanic, found a way to free the amani people once and for all.

8
Lok and Clan Castanic delivered their creation to the amani, who freed themselves and threw down the last bastion of the giants’ power. Never again would amani lancers turn their weapons on the innocent, and ever since we’ve used the lessons of our enslavement to ensure freedom for all.

9
There are those who curse Lok for his later actions, but for the amani people, Lok and the crafters of Clan Castanic are among the truest friends we’ve ever known. When the castanics were cast down, we took them under our shields, and they taught us to forge unbreakable lances.

10
Kaia loved us when no-one else would. Lok helped us, though it ultimately cost his life. To honor their trust and sacrifices, we taught the world how to resist tyranny. To take up the shield is to vow never to stop fighting until Kaia welcomes you home.
In the years that followed our liberation, we crafted a mighty fortress to honor the shieldmaiden Kaia. With her help, we guard Northern Shara to this day, against any and all threats. She is our mistress, our mother, and our fiercest commander.

11
When the high elves came for the humans of Essenia, we were there, lances at the ready. When the argons came for us all, we stood fast while others fled. The high elves sent an army in response, but when they set shields and lances against the argons, we knew they’d chosen the right side.

12
Now we fight for the Valkyon Federation. On islands, in the clouds, in trenches and towers. No army is complete without a contingent of lancers, and no aman would dare stay behind when Kaia calls us to war.
We stand. We fight! We win!
Welcome, lancer, to the front lines.
Hey TERA fans, we’ve got another loading screen contest starting Sunday, July 1. This time out, we’re going to focus on the history of the lancer, as told by Primus Daarran, an amani drill instructor with a…unique conversational style.

Level up a lancer in July, and Daarran will send you history lessons as you hit certain leveling milestones! Turn his words into your art, and we’ll make some more history as the origins of the lancer will be depicted on screen for the very first time!

We’re looking for the best piece of art for each of Daarran’s lessons, 12 loading screens in total. Ideally, you’ll find that one part of the lancer’s story that really resonates with you for your entry—the simpler the better. Submit your potential loading screens (1920×1200.png) as an attachment to community@enmasse.com by Friday, July 20 at 11:59 p.m. PDT. (Standard contest rules apply.)

You must consent to our privacy policy by including the line "I accept your privacy policy" in the body of your emailed submission, or we are not allowed to keep or consider your submission. We'll only use your character name, server name, and email address for the sake of this contest.

I'll add the text in the next post :)

Each week you will receive one Journal Volume on the first character you log in to on each server. Don't worry, this Journal Volume is bankable so you can transfer it to any character on the server you like. You also have five Journal Pages to collect, each one holds some of Verda's dragon research that could unlock a hidden secret so read them carefully. These are also bankable so feel free to collect them on any character and then send them thru your bank to the character that needs the reward for binding all 5 pages to the journal volume.

You bind the journal pages by right-clicking the Journal Volume once it and the 5 weekly Journal Pages are in your inventory. This will consume all six items and give you 20 Dragon Scales. Each weeks Journal Volume and Journal Pages are unique for that week and 1 of each Journal Page is required to perform the binding. You can only receive one Journal Volume per server per week and any additional Journal Pages you collect cannot be used to obtain more Dragon Scales.

The Journal Volumes and Journal Pages will be removed from player inventory 1 week after the event ends on May 22 at 9 a.m. PDT.

Thanks for the event before the patch ^^

No, awakening doesn't have new master glyphs.

You should be thanking more for next week's event of double item xp. That's better than this pointless event that we just had a couple of weeks ago.

Thanks.

Then i will focus on gearing up instead of farming tokens for glyphs - And i believe that this kind of event is most welcome for whoever might need glyphs ( even titan/storm earth are harder to get now so the tokens might help a little ).

If you ask most of the players that PVP on a daily basis what their favorite battleground is 9/10 they will say either FWC or Corsairs. T

This is a silly thing to say. If you ask a really good player, a good 80% of them will say they prefer 3s over anything else. It's generally only bad players who will prefer CS, and FWC it goes both ways

I disagree. You can look at the population of cs/fwc to see this. Most of the names you see in those BGs you do not see in 3s.

We are not talking about who is better here, but what is better for the majority of TERA online who wants to que battlegrounds.

Last month's leaderboards were full of people who were doing 3s despite there being no reward, and it's easy enough for EME to punish people exploiting. People exploiting the system is also more or less irrelevant to normal people playing for rewards. It should be on there.
We recognize that a lot of you who have been playing TERA on PC are now also playing it on Console. That's cool. We are too.

We also know that one of your first priorities will be finding other players on your alternative platform who might make good guild members, teammates for tackling dungeons, or just like minded party members for beating on BAMs out in the hunting Zones.

Our goal is to make the task of teambuilding easier for you, so each day you log in on PC, you'll receive a TERA Celebration Token.

You can trade in these tokens for either a Playstation Launch Loot Box, an Xbox Launch Loot Box, or a PC Launch Loot Box.

Setting off the (P) & (S), or the (X) & (B) Fireworks while playing on PC tells other players that you also playing TERA on Console, and would like to group up, if they're available.

Setting off the (P) &(C) Fireworks says that while TERA on Console is cool, you're excited for new content on PC. Stuff like the last update, Counterpunch, or the upcoming Godsfall update.

Remember that these TERA Celebration Tokens are only temporary, and any unused tokens will be removed from your inventory on Tuesday, April 10th during Maintenance, but you get to keep the Fireworks.

And in case you're curious which platform has the most group friendly players, we'll announce the most chosen Firework box on April 10.
People that like Skyring can still do it. They are just not getting a jackpot, which means they can't exploit it.

The design of the dungeon is fine, but in a f2p game where people can play multiple accounts at the same time very easily, it's not implemented well.

There was someone on TR who was playing 40 (yes 40!!!!!) chars in 20v20 Corsair, and scamming the system. If someone is willing to do that, it is infinitely easier to do it on Skyring.

That's why Skyring needs to be left out.
You notice how it's only like 20 people complaining about this calendar? MAJORITY if not at least 80% of the tera population avoids Champion Skyring.. Well unless they are the people that were throwing matches and exploiting rewards. It's a very minuscule amount of players that do enjoy small scale pvp. If you ask most of the players that PVP on a daily basis what their favorite battleground is 9/10 they will say either FWC or Corsairs. To force the much larger scale of players to go into 3's so a small amount of players will be happy doesn't work. Especially when Skyring occupied TWO days out of the week.

My Suggestion:
Enmasse why not have an event going on in Champion Skyring 3's while an event is going on in FWC, Corsairs and eventually the new gridiron? I guarantee this won't cause a shortage of players playing either battlegrounds because some people either prefer large scale pvp, or small scale pvp. Why force players to play a style of PVP they dislike?

thumbs up on removing those 2 BGs, [filtered] them exploiters and stop crying
+1000 on March's calendar. Love it!
@Maleficent94 I agree! Going into games with someone that sync qued with someone else and got put on the other team and just stands there and throws take turns winning was.... dreadfully cringe to watch.
I love the removal of 3s & Grid keep up the good work!
I’d be fine if solo skyring was taken out of the calendar because people are way too toxic to even make the battleground enjoyable.

Because we enjoy 3's like you people enjoy CS. CS is bottom of the barrel PVP. It's a trash BG. FW is slightly better but GL winning a game when you get 10 EQ kids on your team against 10-15 unEQ on the other team. Why should the 3's community be punished because EME can't do their jobs and ban the people abusing their game? If they took out all FW and CS and made it 3's and you ONLY liked doing FW for PVP, you would be upset too. Let people express their opinions on the matter because all we can do is hope that EME gets this figured out, punishes the people who abused it, and gets REAL PVP back into tera.

Jesus christ you guys are completely clueless when it comes to keeping your player base active. I'll just chime in and say that, yes, you shouldn't include the jackpot in the Team Q version of Skyring, and keep it in the solo q version. Also, there is no reason to nerf the jackpot when getting +9 is already as hard as it is.

Want people to report the feeders farming team q? Add back leaderboards (which, since rank is still tracked, a UI for leaderboards could be added.), so we can report those who obviously aren't doing genuine team q. The only real team q still going on is guardian queue which was my idea, and like Elinerd pointed out, the highest ratings legit I've seen for Skyring is about 1400ish, which is only rank 10-20, the feeders would easily be seen on Leaderboard. In fact, just bring back Global leaderboards.

I am mostly a FWC/CS player and i am so happy to see them up there basically every day.. But i still think that maybe the 3s deserved a day out of the entire week?

Anyway.. what about coming up with some sort of cap for every character much like guardian missions while at the same time probably not let characters with less than X hours played at level 65 to queue because those are surely not trying to actually do 3s but instead have other motives? If the 3s players want it back then i hope that they are also willing to make a compromise?

No. Why should the 3's community have to "Compromise" When no one else has to? Tell the GM's to do their damn jobs and ban the people exploiting the game. Don't do a 3 day slap on the wrist "no no don't do that again" BAN THEM. IP ban them. Delete their account. Make it known you won't tolerate this type of behavior. Because all EME is doing now is basically saying "Ah [filtered], well they duped us and made a lot of money. Oh well. Guess we'll just have to take the whole BG down and kill a wing of our player base because these few people did something bad" I'm not cool with that. Ban the mofo's.

If the jackpot for Champions' Skyring was taken away due to exploits, most likely involving team queue, why wouldn't you just remove the jackpot from team queue and leave it for solo queue? It would be much harder to exploit, considering more people queue solo. Just an idea, but I believe it's a good one.

Bring back 3s though and punish the people we reported for feeding numerous times. Don't punish the currently active community just because you can't do your jobs and easily see who's taking advantage of feeding team 3v3.

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).

Wait, so the tera PVP community who thrives and really only plays this game for 3's (its a small handful but still a good chunk of people) are getting punished because the GM's couldn't do their, ya know, jobs? And ban people who abused the system? :thinking: If this game has chat logs and trade logs, surely on the dev's side you guys can go back and check games. Or... Monitor them...

All you guys should have done is ban the players with the highest rating for this season, they are hundreds of points above the highest rated players. Aveon's team(usually top rated as far as legit queues go) for instance hovers around 1400-1500 yet some randoms are upwards of 1700, and since not many teams even queue for team 3s it's completely obvious what they're up to. Their scores also indicate they trade wins with a slick 50% win ratio. With leaderboards it would be even easier for players to send in reports since we'd be able to clearly see the names of the players that are abusing the system. Removing the rewards even for a month is a pretty devastating blow for the people who only log in for 3v3, so please don't make this a trend. And please don't gimp the rewards either, that's only going to further shrink the player pool.

Also I want to point out that there aren't many groups queuing for team 3s and most of us know one another, it would be so obvious to us who the exploiters were if we saw a list of players who have queued the battleground. Couldn't you guys at EME reach out to us to sort out this abuse?

I'll admit I'm all for the new changes in regards to the rewards updates but the calendar changes are something else my man.
Gridiron getting removed and revamped in Korea is also a justified change for the calendar..........but Skyring?
Lets be real for a second here. Battleground dates and rewards are the main reason why the PvP queues even move on the NA server. Without the rewards, the queues for other gamemodes are so far and few its ridiculous compared to the old days.

Champion Skyring is by far the most respected PvP game mode in Tera since its release.
You're basically giving every hardcore pvp player the middle finger as the game mode had only traffic due to the Jackpot rewards. You guys coulda eased up this by limiting the number of days Skyring appears on the weekly by once a week as you guys come up with a solution rather than delete it all together for a month.

I understand if Enmasse doesn't fully trust the Tera Community to Police the exploiters/match riggers but I'm sure there coulda definitely been a better alternative than the one you guys are implimenting.

Jackpot was the reason why 3's was revived.
Jackpot gave incentive for people to even try the game mode.
Jackpot rejuvenate PvP gamemodes in Tera

Don't let Jackpot die in Tera's best game mode

BEST BG CALENDAR EVER.

(No sarcasm)

And better rewards!

-thumbs up eme-
Best calendar ever (no sarcasm)
wait why is this the most useless calendar/jackpot to date? You're essentially killing 2 BG's one which is popular amongst serious PVP players (3's) and while I do agree that the current options are better than the massive amount of titans storms we all got in previous BG's the new jackpots aren't worth much at all either.
loooooooooooooooool
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.

As of now, it is RNG to even get a jackpot. This is a low blow, and isn't worth anyone's time.
I, we, really suggest that you adjust the event and put it on the same mode as you did with Demon's wheel.

While not a huge update, I did want to let you all know a couple things that are deploying today:

  1. We have added 60 TERA Reward Points to the non-repeatable version of Thaumetal Refinery
  2. We have added 60 TERA Reward Points to the non-repeatable version of RK-9 Kennel
  3. We have added 90 TERA Reward Points to the non-repeatable version of Thaumetal Refinery (Hard Mode)
  4. Elite Status players will now have an always-on Continuous Crystalbind effect
  5. We have removed the Complete Crystalbinds from the Elite Gift Box since the effect is now on all the time

Also, it's a known issue that the visual effect of the Crystalbind bubble is now on all the time for players with this buff. This visual effect will be removed in v62, deploying later this month.

And this should've won "Scariest" if not the first male zombie one.. I mean, gender equality right? LOL

Rigged as always, like the loading screen contest which introduced us some of the ugliest abomination known to art.
Or, the EME art department just lacks artsy brain cells.. one or the other.
So, to elaborate my sentiments, I decided to pull together and compared these so called "winners" with the ones that should've won over them any day.

EME, seriously, please do not hold a contest if you fail at judging it. Stop luring in people to participate just to waste their time.
Some of these people spent hours and hours creating something that's genuinely art, is pleasing to look at, and is worthy of being called the winner, yet you spoil it all by misjudging everything.
I am not disregarding other entries, absolutely not. They're good, but just nowhere as good when put in comparison. And of course, their efforts are commended.
EME, if you were really trying to appreciate the artists in the TERA community and what they had to offer by holding these contests, we could understand. However, what you have done and always been doing is nothing but denial to us, or anyone who does art.
Just look at KTERA, or JTERA community. There's no random questionable items on their loading screens or contest winner lists except art. You don't need to be them or even be like them, but at least try to keep up in the same direction.
So, PLEASE, hire someone who actually has an eye for this kind of thing before it hurts both sides even further!


Hahahahah! I used to be the white knight and had to fight for my ground against idiots and plebs all the time in this kind of stuff, so it's really funny and refreshing to see someone white knighting me and for me.
Although this brother came off kinda too extremely, but he's absolutely right. Don't take him for being salty, there's hardly any salt but only truth.

I got a couple honorable mentions before, but I stopped entering anyway because I saw no hope in an art contest ever being held right. EME is too inconsistent when it comes to judging art, and there are times when they don't even relate to art at all. The only time when we actually get to see a good piece of art being selected as the winner is when they realize they can't keep fooling around randomizing the winning entries and finally pick a decent one to mix in. But even then, the best among the best is still left out.. Sad, truly.

Really though, thanks for standing up for us artists and aspiring artists who actually appreciate a good piece of something that's "pleasing to look at".
But honestly, we don't expect anything from EME in this department anymore, it's hopeless. And anyone who does and knows art will always find fulfillment in their creation no matter what.

Just keep wishing yourself luck and pray that the winner selection machine picks your stuff next time~ hahaha!

I've never seen more halloween things in a shot than this, and well portioned on top of that.

So, seriously, EME, don't hold a contest and lure all the people into wasting their time participating in your pointless joke if you fail at judging.
We would've understood if you were genuinely trying to appreciate the artists in the TERA community and what they have to offer by doing these events/contests, but what you've done and always been doing is nothing but denial to them, us, anyone who appreciates real art.
Just hire someone who actually has an eye for this kind of thing.. PLEASE!
I found them all for you!~
