EME is quite literally forcing people to play *their* BG of the day instead of letting us decide what we want to que for. This is quite saddening to see.

Not everyone wants to do solo 3's, or gridiron or fraywind canyon.

The rewards are getting a bit better, however limiting your playerbase to what they want to que for is hurting it more than anything.

Why can we not have one large scale one small scale pvp set up on the same days?

Example:

Monday - Solo 3's & Gridiron
Tuesday - Team 3's & Fraywind Canyon
etc.
It is funny to see that FWC the BG that gives the best reward and probably the most popular has the least days on the calendar. I don't know if they are doing it to push people into other BGs or if EME is just again showing they are disconnected from the player base.

Grid is being deleted as a BG for a reason. Just saying.

Jackpots are getting better at least. Progressing in the right direction. All we need now is Essences.

There is no need to add double drop to GG or PoP, too many diamonds!

not everybody is as lucky as you are or has 14 characters to run Ghillie everyday, a little double drop on that dungeon wouldn't hurt

I ran Ghillieglade and pit on 16 alts and literally only got one diamond throughout the whole double drop last time... Feelsbadman
and nothing for us lower level players =(

Didnt won 1 diamond last month, you lucky guy.
Nice to see jackpots improving though.
Just throwing this out there in hopes that EME reads it, but people que Fraywind almost every day. CS is the most popular after that so it would really make sense for saturday and sunday to be fwc/cs like they used to. In addition, Grid never needs to be jackpot because it still has outdated rewards from last patch, and thus noone ques it. Ever.

What about lower level characters or players that play solo....can't we ever get special things....PLEASE!!!!!

That's what the box is for.
Lets at least try this month and don't leave us hanging for days on end to get the rest of the Calendar. Also better rewards that aren't a complete slap in the face to your PvP crowd. Thanks.

Let me just compile all of the separate occasions I got diamonds in GG to make it seem like I get them every time I clear. Tera loot rate is op after all. Git jealous, plebs.
Weeeeeaaaakkkk :<
+1 at the Ghilly double drop plea!

Thx for the event though.
So are there any double drops in RKEM ?
of course diamonds drop in large quantities for people who already have stormcry. Thanks RNGsus, the rest of us will take our 2 ruby's a day and cry in a corner
Until we're back in the office and update the BG calendar, here's the schedule for January's first few days:

January 1: Champions' Skyring
January 2: Corsairs' Stronghold
January 3: Gridiron
that's very true many new people who want to have a decent team to be able to do DG, give double drops on ghillie and petrax too please.
double drop on ghillie/pit plsorino

Now maybe all the posts and threads will stop. Holy cow.

Thanks Halrath. Hope Christmas treated you well. :)
The end of 2017 is upon us, and we’ve prepared some special events to help you ring in 2018!

First off, from 10 a.m. PST on Saturday, December 30 until Tuesday, Jan 2 at 10 a.m. PST, you’ll get twice the usual drops in the following dungeons, as well as a chance for bonus winter-themed loot boxes from the final boss:

RK-9 Kennel
RK-9 Kennel (Hard)
Broken Prison
Sky Cruiser Endeavor
Lilith's Keep
Lilith's Keep (Hard)
Thaumetal Refinery
Thaumetal Refinery (Hard)
Kalivan's Dreadnaught
Kalivan's Challenge
Ravenous Gorge
Shattered Fleet

Plus, on December 31, if you log in for at least a minute between 11:45 p.m. and 12:15 a.m., we’ll send you a Big-Badda-Boom Box, containing over a hundred new year's fireworks for you to set off to your heart’s content!

If you’re worried you might miss the window, don't! This gift spawns during all four time zones of the continental U.S.—EST, CST, MST, and PST—so if you spend all night with us you can get as many as four Big-Badda-Boom Boxes!

And be sure to use your fireworks before Tuesday, January 30, 2018, because that’s when they’ll vanish from your inventory.

From all of us here at En Masse Entertainment, have a safe and prosperous new year!

I sent a gift box to a friend and has not received it so far, which I now have to do. Help me, I spent the money on it.
Just a reminder that you still owe us this event.
And Gifting centre still busted :skull: :upside_down:
i WANT DANCING EMOTE LIKE THIS!
WOW! the price for 5 of these loot boxes is close to $100 I cant understand they would do this with all the Loot box controversy and praying on kids and promoting gambling?

Why a race locked costumes? So lets say if someone doesn't have an elin in their account, they get rekt right at the 10th gift right? Why not a universal costume instead of just putting elin only?

Agreed. The bonuses this year for giving are completely baffling.

This year is actually better than last year overall and bonuses are even better. Last year sucked and many people didn't bother.

So... multi-colored "footsteps", a customziable outfit only one single race can wear, and a mount few people care about are better bonuses?

You know what? You can have this one. My brain hurts enough as it is.

Compare to last year it is, go check the Golden Crown, Kelseik mask or whatever, I never give golden boxes, Idc :D but last year was way too crap.

Are the boxes tradeable? As in, if I get a box I don't wanna open and rather sell, can I do so?

It’s the holiday season once again, and indulging your spirit of holiday giving could also snag you a sleigh-load of EMP and assorted TERA loot!

From Wednesday, December 20 until Thursday, January 4, 2018 at 10 a.m. PST, drop by the TERA Store to buy golden gift boxes for yourself and every last one of your friends...then head straight to our Gifting Center.

How It Works:

First, buy a gift box (or several!) from the TERA Store.

1. Open it yourself and choose from four greeting cards to reveal your prize. (You’ll also get a peek at what you could have won.)

2. Or send one or more boxes to friends using the Gifting Center to receive these great prizes:

1 gift sent—Santa Suit and Santa Cap permanent character accessory
5 gifts sent—Footsteps: Chromatic Kkultteok Plate. Leave a trail of sweet treats as you move!
10 gifts sent—Account-bound Elin Dyeable Maid Dress (a never-before-released variant of the maid costumes from the Elin Housemaid Loot Box)
15 gifts sent— Account-bound permanent Thunderbolt Flying Wolf mount, with HP/MP. (Use this manual to learn how to summon Thunderbolt, a flying wolf mount with a flight and movement speed of 290 that restores 1% of your maximum HP and MP every second.)
20 gifts sent—1 year of Elite Status

Expecting a lot of gift boxes? Golden gift boxes should be opened by Thursday, January 11 at 10 a.m. PST. After that, any golden gift boxes remaining in your TERA Gifting Center will be converted into Santa Suits and Santa Caps, delivered by January 19 at 9 p.m. PST directly to your Item Claim.

Is this event even on? Did 16x runs for the past 2 days and got absolutely nothing, even checked the chat log every run if somebody els got the jackpot but nope nothing at all :/

x8 TRN yesterday and 0 drops...

event isn't on, please fix this, ran 5 runs, nothing is dropping.
8 runs, 2 jackpot. 1 superior coc and 1 miner hat (for1pplonly). Thats sad
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.
Group got nothing the first time and now this 2nd run, 1 person got a miner hat. So they have it so 1 item drops that the group rolls on unlike the Demon Wheel event. How lame, especially with all the crap we have to deal with right now involving the chat system down.
someone forgot to press the start event button
Not one person in the party got one for us. When reading the tera news on it, it says:

"Starting Friday, November 10 at 10 a.m. PST, and continuing until the following Tuesday, November 14 at 8 a.m. PST, completing Thaumetal Refinery (Normal)—that is, by defeating Garuuksalk, the final boss—yields a bonus drop of one of the following items (determined at random):"

Doesn't say chance for a bonus drop, says yields a bonus drop. Pretty cut and dry.
@Spacecats @Halrath Sorry to bother you, but is the event in fact, on? Also, is it one per person or one per party?
Why does this seem to happen with every time there is a dungeon event. Happened last time with Demons Wheel where they didn't start it when they said they would. Jeesh
so this event only 1 ppl on party got drop ?
If the event is up atm, gg. Another event with a ridiculous low rate that none going to get nothing :trollface:

The event is not up yet sadly
So let me get this clear the loot is not shared cause I got nothing. so got to fight over dyads and notc or what.
is the event or already or not? i don't see it in the event tab in game
You get extra loot for running it, there is nothing low about it.

PS: That Minor hat on Popo lols, super cute
Ooo, yes this isn't clear.

Thank you for event!
Thanks for this event! Can't wait to get any of these items, even the hat the first couple of times!
Is this going to be similar to the Demons wheel event? Will the random loot be shown at the start of the run?

Also, to clarify, will every party member get the bonus drop, or is it only 1 bonus drop that goes to 1 person?

This weekend we are highlighting Thaumetal Refinery (Normal) and (Hard). Take advantage of this event to get a cool head accessory!

Starting Friday, November 10 at 10 a.m. PST, and continuing until the following Tuesday, November 14 at 8 a.m. PST, completing Thaumetal Refinery (Normal)—that is, by defeating Garuuksalk, the final boss—yields a bonus drop of one of the following items (determined at random):

Miner Hat ×1

Superior Noctenium Elixir ×1
Titan's Earth ×4

For even more rewards (also determined at random), delve into Thaumetal Refinery (Hard) and defeat Nightmare Garuuksalk.

Superior Noctenium Elixir ×2
Titan's Earth ×6
Titan's Storm ×6

The Miner Hat is only available this weekend through these dungeons, so grab your friends and head into the refinery!

Just a reminder to all of our players that Daylight Savings Time ends this weekend and TERA will revert to Pacific Standard Time. Events that started at 10 a.m. PDT will start at 11 a.m. PST.

Please bear this in mind when scheduling your activities! Have a great weekend and don't forget to check out the EME Extra Life stream!
what did you learn boys and girls dont bother with art events anymore cause they can pick a pink killing eye thing > something that you dedicated hours into
All contenders did actually did good and I liked to view most of them.

But about Scariest I have two issues, Player get to a place which is possible by a glitch, right? and it is volcanic and not Halloween related, screenshot is beautifully done, no argument there but as I said that is not so Halloween related and also is a blow to others that didn't glitch to get to places.

It's not a glitch, i flew around fyrmgorge(whatever the spelling is) and you can totally swim around the lava w/o tricks. And if it were a glitch, they didn't mention that it wasn't allowed anyway.

'Not Halloween related' yeah i do thought about it but after a couple of google searches i think Halloween is abstract, it's like some sort of cosplay but with a theme of being spooky. you don't only thought of halloween as about only pumpkins. there are also vampires, wolves, skeleton shts, etc. I don't think it's necessary to have pumpkins all around you to be halloweeny

meh this is something....

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.

Personally I think this is one of the best for cutest. Tho its theme may not match halloween. Just look at how beautiful this screenshot is, compared to the winner for the cutest.

These are the ones that should have won

Should have won :

I think graphics shouldn't matter. Some ppl just can't turn on better graphics.
And even if I think there are better entries than the winner - there are always ppl who won't agree with EME. It's their choice, not ours - so; congrats to the winners :)
...some really good entries are not even Halloween-related...

My personal winner is the pink human angel :D but it's more "funny" than "cute"
And this should've won "Scariest" if not the first male zombie one.. I mean, gender equality right? LOL

**********HERE ARE THE REAL WINNERS**********


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!

Agreed tbh. I didn't enter, so I don't have anything to be salty about, but I was following this thread every day to look at all the entries and I must say I'm very surprised by the chosen winners. And then for those winning shots to be called "outstanding submissions which stood above the rest" haha

I'm guessing they just had one guy rushing to pick some winners last minute. I thought the way they did the last screenshot contest was better. They had the whole office vote on the winners and gave the results on stream. There was much less disagreement from the community that time around
Mmm.. interesting.

I won the last contest with a really elaborate piece so I thought that's what they liked and based on when judging, so I outdid myself this time and went even beyond.. but I guess same trick doesn't work twice? LOL

Maybe some of you remember my entry from last time:

Welp, as a previous winner, I must say...things got weird LOL and this is some funny stuff we witnessed this time around.
Grats to the winners, like some said, your time and effort were commended and rewarded. But your winning on the other hand, while a reality, let's just say EME is not without RNG hahaha.

o///
**********HERE ARE THE REAL WINNERS**********


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!

Have your crack at it, guys. I believe in you.

Scariest:
Won.. But I think it's more dramatic than scary, no? Maybe the guy entered it wrong?

Should've won. It's not edited, just look at the effects and scares this guy achieved in one go.

Funniest:
The BS that won, it's not even on full graphics.

VS
Should've won.

Or this.. Don't need me to explain why, right? Unless you have no sense of humor, then get out of here.

**The next two are the prime example of good, or even very good but still nowhere as good when compared.
Most Dramatic:
Won... It's not bad, honestly, but still..

VS
Should've won, MAYBE?? Dude probably spent hours taking a shot that perfectly lines up brooch effect + skill effect + turning and aiming camera right after using a skill for the awesome background..hello?

Cutest:
Won... lol - just a standstill shot of elin in combat, a stiff face with random colorful costumes. Cute? I mean yes elins are cute, but look at next two.

VS
Should've won by a landslide, look at this fkn genius miracle. Look at the emote being used and captured at the perfect moment while proportioning the character with the background and the environment that is the butterflies. NOT EVEN MENTIONING THE CHOICE OF COSMETICS!
I bet it was too much for the brain of whoever was judging so they just bypassed it...Sad.

or this, if you're opposed to male character winning "Cutest", just look at that face, the costume, and the beauty of the entire shot. Open your eyes.

Most Halloweeny:
Don't even ask why this won... low graphics and poor resolution.

Should've won by the perfect popo shot we've all been waiting for.

Or something like this. I've never seen more halloweeny things in one shot and all well proportioned than this, honestly.
TERA_Screen_Shot_20161011_051843.png
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Their event, their rules, their choices. better luck next time mate and i definitely didn't entered the wrong category. get over it. its just 3k emp anyway lol

Edit: oh and i didn't edit mine either. tf is your point
THE REAL WINNERS ARE HERE!

As usual, EME's contests are all rigged or simply off-the-chart biased with no professional backing. Rigged as EFF 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 of the other.
So, to elaborate my sentiments, I decided to put together and compare these so called "winners" with the ones that should've won over them any day.

Have your crack at it, guys. I believe in you and your view on art.

Scariest:
Won.. HELLO? Who's scared by this?

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!
Took me couple of hours to find a nice place as the background. Did over a hundred tries to find the best pose and smile. I don't know about you guys, I'm happy with what I did. The screenshot is cute for me that is why I put it under that category. I'm sorry for whoever doesn't like it.
I know mine wasn't funny there other people who did funny and theres were better then mine and the winner
I think the pick for cutest didn't fit too and I entered funny
I am glad they picked them this fast, actually going through 20+ pages of posts and grading them is stressful af. congrats to the lucky winners
oh i didn't thought i'd win LOL tyvm<3
glad I didn't enter this one lol
no offense but its almost like the winners were chosen at random. especially halloweeny and cutest
