As sad as it is, you guys should just jump ship to another game and leave Tera NA, because with the staff they have left, and the things they have done in the past year, there is no hope whatsoever to improve things for this game. Everything comes to an end, and so should this as well.
"We heard that you wanted more talents so we put them in the cash shop" -EME
If you join other people's groups, deal with whatever attitude they have or simply leave, otherwise make your own groups with people you are comfortable with. The "elitism" is present in any online game, there are always good and bad players and some that are just plainly awful at the game. In MMORPGs there are "farming/speed runs", "clearing runs" and "learning runs/progress" so you join or make groups that qualify to your current performance/experience in the instance.
Regardless of what they say, there is nothing that EME and BHS can do to replace the tools and support we have lost in NA, because they never did anything about it, and will never do. There won't be fixes to the latency affecting skills, no fixes for crashing when swimming, no fixes for capes and scarves going crazy and many others issues that have been known by the players and SHOULD BE known by publishers and developer for years. Keeping this thread up is as pointless as it is hypocrite.
Back when the 3rd party crapstorm blew up last year, they made forbidden to talk about any third party app even VPNs so I am not sure if they have changed that stance.
Everyone trying to whiteknight in this thread are either entitled kids with privileged ping, bottom line casuals or simply ignorant about the background of this situation...OR ALL OF THE ABOVE. They also can't discern between internet trolling and serious statements done by those they seek to condemn and criminalize.

I don't understand, what's there to discuss here? Like honestly? What?

You could make your own thread to post random, irrelevant crap.

I love how you're all quick to judge those of us with logic and a little thing common sense as 'white knights'. Lol get off your high horses and chill.

My friend are you sure you wish to assume my thought process?

It's how it's been since day one. Someone simply points out that (once in a blue moon) EME has a valid point, and all of a sudden every single person who's anti-white-knight comes around and you see nothing but "FILTHY WHITE KNIGHTS, SCUM, SCUM, ALL OF YOU" or some extent of that.

Not exacly. ElinUsagi is just making assumptions with lack of information, like always, and just making an statement on the highly inaccurate information that EME has spread ever since the proxy witch hunt started last year, when they portrayed every proxy developer as the same than those who made exploits and leaked them around. The only valid point that EnMasse has in this disaster is their "terms of service" and nothing else, because their acts in this incident aren't in benefit of anyone, not even themselves. They don't care about you or any of the players either 3pp user or not.

This thread has devolved into players just slinging mud at eachother instead of addressing the actual issue at hand. Good job.

Because there are many ignorants that don't have a clear understanding of the situation.

that the minority of the players were cheats, please since 2017 the statistics changed a lot, currently the majority used the proxy to tramapically 80% of the proxy players abused the pergrams and those that were really helped were minority,

I repeat again my previous comment you want to blame someone, blame you cheat friend blame yourself for not reporting to cheats, by God in FWC most of the top players in the rank were cheaters who did not use the proxy to aid in the ping if not to cheat, they made impossible combos because they broke the game rules of the class they had with practically infinite combos if they wanted, petrax in 3 seconds please that's just cheating and I do not use proxy to level your ping if not to break the rules, as I said the community abuse of the proxy to break rules not to help the statistics change and they became majority and when that happens the radical measures are applied, blame your friend who took advantage of the game

@sid79s u r wrong bro, u cant do the right rotation with warrior with 200ms+, of course the TOP pvp players uses proxy, even who lives in chicago has high ping, to fix it the people are using proxy because it is the solution, lag spikes like a hell in tera, so i wont blame my cheat friend because that enmasse already has banned them. I challenge you to play tera with 200ms+

you should read the comment again I'm not talking about the people who use the proxy to improve their ping, I'm talking about the people who use the proxy to take advantage of the game, if nobody realized that EME is not removing the proxies by the people who only want to improve their ping, EME removing it by the people who use them to cheat, how many people you know cheats and breaks the rules and instead of reporting the contrary they want to do the same, the game has more than 5 years and believe that eme I did not know about the proxys, of course they knew and everything was fine until people started abusing and cheating, as I said now the statistics changed saying that cheats are minority when today was the opposite there were more cheaters honest people, I play tera without proxies or scripts or anything and give battle to those proxies and I am Latin I do not have a low ping, just see some comments above where a person is complaining because he has a ping of 17ms Because you do not have the proxy anymore, you think that person needs a proxy, obviously he does not use it to improve his ping.

the cheaters are always here and in 2 or 3 days they will find another way to cheat but if people do not report, why do people cry and complain with EME when the people who cheat are the cause of all this?

There are exploiters thats for sure, but I'd say that they represent a small portion of those who used proxy. Sadly the ignorant community think of every proxy user the same way, exploiters or not and EME is just as dumb as them.
They don't care, they dont know how the game performs at that latency.

I'd prefer that EME didn't consort with the developers of these 3rd-party programs, because their unwarranted egos are already big enough, but I would like to see some in-house development of some fixes.

Nothing is bigger than EME's ego, I'd assure you. The developers of the 3rd party programs that benefit a large portion of the playerbase did it for free and on their OWN INITIATIVE, to fix and improve things that players ASKED TO THE DEVELOPER AND PUBLISHERS but that never got any solution from them. There won't be "in-house" fixes because they never did and never will, don't be foolish.
Sadly this is another thread made on a Friday after a terrible decision by EME (remember the server merger announcement? yes, it was also on a friday), so nobody on their side is gonna read any crap til monday.

The best way to combat Piracy / 3PA in software is to provide a better experience than the pirated copy / 3PAs can provide. You cannot prevent use of them. All you'll do is hurt ethical players, while unethical ones will thrive.

Edit: TLDR make the game worth playing without 3PAs.

EME can't do a damn thing about the game, can't improve gameplay aspects of it, can't fix any issues or make a patch by themselves, it all comes from BHS. They don't play their game, doesn't know how it works or performs on different hardware builds or connection latencies, so they can't come up with a solid idea about what is wrong with it and what isn't. Not even BHS ever came up with solutions to simple things like the glitching capes/scarves, mounting bugs, much less to complex aspects to it like...rubberbanding and everything going to crap with skills past a certain latency threshold! It was players who came up with fixes to those problems in benefit of all those affected. Wasn't the game developer and of course, not the publisher.
People who made use of packet injector scripts to mitigate the effect of latency in their performance, were pretty much players who were CRIPPLED by this issue and couldn't play the game at the level of those who have acceptable latency levels. NA Tera has only East Coast servers so West Coast living players play at latencies of 100ms or higher, players outside north american territory, even higher. The game engine, code are designed to work under 50ms to perform as intended, latencies higher than that cause desync in skill usage and other adverse issues that affect the player experience, for those who play the game at a serious level in content with short reaction times (mainly tanking and healing). The 3rd party applications, mainly the latency mitigation you so earnestly have fiought against, was pretty much what a leg prosthesis is to a person missing a leg, a tool that enables to perform at a level comparable of a healthy, whole person, just in comparison.
DMCAs have legal effect when a 3rd party is making use of assets with copyright property, not under false allegations of 3rd party programs that make no use whatsoever of copyrighted assets, code, etc. If that was LEGAL, media player applications (MPC, GOM, AIMP, Winamp, etc) would get DMCAs because people are using them to play ripped Mp3, mkv, wma files of copyrighted media.
I am at 21060, was champion and now need 641 more to get it back ._.
They most likely lost achievement points in the "fix" or remember that time ago there were like 1000 dummy points for laurels that weren't set into any achievement and just bloating the score required, maybe they re enabled that >_>
Berserk tank was a WIP before they added Brawler, but when they added that class the berserker tanking was left aside. Enrage, aura party buff (damage up maybe?) being able to use cyclone with at least 2 charge bars with faster spin and half damage/no damage during animation at high agro generation, etc.
You can notice that they dont play the game, since you need a minimum of ilv 439 to do the awakening quest, and twistshard is 431 ._.
They keep pumping jewels into the game but talents from loot are scarce, and we already get a lot of jewels from just doing guardians. Sadly if this is BHS intention for NA there is nothing to be done since they are keeping EME on a tight leash.
Be informed before making a post, and do it with all the information instead of just making those uninformed to panic about something that isn't.
Stepstone island sucks, it looks bad, has bad lighting and there is no reason to revisit after you complete the starter quests, but IoD was a great place to hang out, it was crisp, colorful and beautiful. Also before the quest were nerfed it gave you a good feel for what the overworld quest would offer.
Oh the same as before, I hope it gets fixed soon and would be nice if they throw some gold/silver talents in it, considering that before we would get stuff that could be turned into entropic emblems but that was removed from the loot.
What loot was lost?
News about server merges were weeks ago, and even if on a break the news get around unless you are entirely unplugged. If you knew about the server merges, checking on what characters to keep, what items they have in their inventories was part of the checklist to prepare.
Apparently if you complete any achievement that gives points you get it restored to what it was, as we didn't lose the score, just have it applied.

Hmm. So CH is essentially no more.

You know what? That's fine. Because I'm still gonna play the game how I with my friends. And if I wanna do so as an elf with some tig-ol' bitties decked out in a set of shiny ceremonial(?) battle armor, you hardcore server merge heads (observation: oh damn, did that sound better in my head) can't stop me. Or my friends. So there. Ahem.

That said, how about fixing some of these other issues, like, say... loot drops? Or maybe even something small like the scarf and cape glitch? Maybe make things a little easier for us few pad players, like not having the game sh*t itself for having the gall to use certain items on the hotbar? Eh? Eh?

Sadly the cape/scarf glitch can only be fixed by unequip and re-equip or with "unethical" means, it's a known bug that BHS never bothered fixing.
I am glad that we were heard, I appreciate of everyone who voiced their concerns about the merging decision in this thread and others.
Their data says that the amount of talents obtained through dungeons and available in the market is completely fine.
Guys, don't wait for the slots, just move as many as you can now to TR and AV if you still hope in merge or just to FF and MT if you don't care about it and wanna play in the new PvP server, because EME is just making delays to force our hand and prove their point on that CH doesn't need a merge.
Should be date the character was created with that name, not name changed to that name, the level reached and the total playtime on that character to be considered for who gets to keep it.
Like I mentioned it before, they should sort by 3 characteristics: date of character creation with that name (so recent name changes don't count) total time played of the character and the level reached. Some of us have characters we created several years ago maybe in a leveling event but that we don't play as often because aren't our main character/role, but at the same time aren't dump alts that we don't bother gearing.

Put your alts in CH so you'll never get use out of their costumes and bound items again. SeemsGoodMan

A slightly better alternative to deleting if I say so myself

or put your alts there until they raise character cap due to normal progression or raise it due to pressure needing to close CH and not loose any cash bound gear

i don't know why eme/bhs cant just raise the max character limits in all the servers that are going to made from the other ones, then there wouldn't be a problem. there probably wouldn't be any fuss at all about ch merging into the others from anyone if they were willing to do that.

The only solution for this is not characters limit per server but a character limit per account. This mess repeats for third time and EME dont give feedback to BHS about that and ignores us again.

Like FFXIV does, there is a max of characters per account and per world.
The way eme is doing things, they might as well give us less talents at the start and somehow shekel their way into the progress of getting higher tier talents.
Tera is bad optimized, its 32 bits and dx9 so modern and high end 64 bits processors, dx12 gpus wont perform at their best, plus tera is known to work bad with amd. Also, SSD helps A LOT with game launch and loading screens.

EME said CH's fate will be determined next thursday, the 13th. SO its not a for sure decision yet. It depends on server population.

That is still tricky since there are still many that hope for the merge and now that they mentioned it a possibility til the 13th that gives them more of a reason to stay, that won't help much in a radical decrease in population that could force the merge >_>
The thing is, the "name contest" is tricky in more than a way. By accumulated game time there are people who could have been gaining play time just by afk ever since the merge was announced, provided it is just 17 days total but can still make a difference for characters below 100 days played, or if you do it for whoever made the character first, there are many players who have made character several years ago and have kept logging on them now and then to secure the names so name wipes don't work for them. So maybe doing it by: playtime on that character, the level and date of creation maybe that would be more "fair" but may be too complicated for the staff to filter by more than one condition.
OPride wrote: »
I'm conflicted. I have my character on CH, but I don't know if I should transfer or not.

If you have only one character or not too many purchased slots, bank slots and wardrobes, I'd say to just transfer, EME already put the sentence on CH so transfer seems like the only way left.

EME, again you mismatch. now youve brought 2 town names and 1 location name. is it that hard to follow scheme with only towns/places/gods/watever names in it... smh rly. id personally vote for Trellum Consurgo (pvp) and Amena Quatla (pve)
edit - typos ffs

Dragonfall and Highwatch were both also town/city names. The convention has always been just "locations".

You'd think they know about the game locations at least, but noooo.
Even if the server were to get merged later with new PvE server, we would be facing again name and guild name conflicts, provided that CH gets merged INTO the new PvE server and not a mutual merge under a new server name. I know of entire guilds moving out to either TR or MT, leaving behind only their least played/geared characters. Some active players might stay but a considerable portion of them will just jump ship.
Some of us tried to expose our concerns and discomfort with their decision but I think that even after 20 pages or so and over 300 posts, EME just looked away, our situation doesn't matter to them one bit, I don't think that the like Q&A will change anything either, it may even be taken down if they see too much "negativity" from CH players regarding their decision, since the stream is for those who are to be merged, not those who were cast aside.
I'd say Velik, Kaia or Elinu for PvE server, but if it was limited to location names, maybe uh, Blessing Basin, Ex Prima?
Lok, Lakan or Manaya for PvP server as options, in my opinion.
If submitting a ticket to get the glyphs back is their only solution, expect a long time waiting with the mass influx of transfers, remember that attending to tickets requesting race/gender change of cosmetics was too demanding for their staff. =)
According to their "data" announcing maintenance days has no impact on player comfort. ;)
For what I've read, there are vulnerabilities in xingcode that could allow someone skilled or just well known in code to use it to freely browse other people's files in their computers through xingcode ;)

@MadameDryIce and anyone else who feels like reading:

I don't run many dungeons when I play not because there aren't people to play with, but because I find most of them a massive slog. Many other people have concurred that it's simply not worth it half the time thanks in part to wacky reward scaling. Having more people to play the same BS dungeons isn't suddenly going to make me want to run those same BS dungeons.

Then you are not different than someone who login just to afk for hours, by eme "data", and your time online contributes to nothing except numbers on what they base something that is not, player activity. If anything it is because of players like you, with that attitude, that CH is damned.

Hang on... are you trying to demonize me for not doing something that I find to be a pain in the a**?

Yes he is, that's how it works around here after all: You do as I want or you're my enemy.

Just back at my post a few pages ago: anyone can play whoever they like, be it AFKing to appreciate the scenario or read the chat bullcrap, adding to that chat bullcrap, appreciating Elin panties silently or spamming the end game dungeons. And it really should be properly metered what are the faulty areas in each server, what is driving people to do less of each content and what content to invest more into. But we all know how some people think there is only one right way to play you see, and anyone that deviates from this, again, is an enemy that should be weeded out and is ruining the community.
The ones deciding how others should or should not play definitely are doing a great job at making a better community no?

You are dumb, it was because others that have come to comment wanting to keep CH excluded did with other reasonable motives, he was just being a [filtered] "And on that note, I'm out this b*tch." being entitled that only his situtation as roleplayer and extreme-to-the-bone-casual is to be prioritized. By all means someone like SageWindu doesn't even need to be online in a MMORPG to do what he wants to do.

Wow. You really need to work on your reading comprehension.

For starters, the part you quoted, I basically said "I don't run many dungeons these days; they're not worth the hassle. Having more people isn't going to suddenly eliminate that hassle and make me run those dungeons. So I do other stuff instead." And you tried to demonize me for not doing something I DON'T LIKE and for, apparently, not playing the game the way YOU play it, saying that I was no different than AFKers.

Now, I could fire back with some very choice words, but I won't because that will do neither of us any good. But I will say that I was against all merges and always have been, because - and I'm going to put this as simply as I can - if the other problems were fixed instead, people would not have left in the first place. Find the source of the problem and fix that and we wouldn't even be having this conversation because we wouldn't need it.

In the future, you may want to make sure you know what people are saying before trying to call them out on it.

It's not their fault. They are just used to getting their way, so it's just second nature for them to try and control everyone they can. There are even idiots out there saying people should be forced onto CH to make up for the fact they won't be merged. Like really?

No doubt once the merge is finished, and they still can't magically fill dungeon runs as fast as they demand, we'll see countless posts from them demanding that everyone play dungeons. It's just never ending with those people. They say we're entitled as they all act like crazed dictators.

Seriously, you guys whine like babies that EME doesn't respond, but every time they do, you just whine more. Sean told you what the deal was. I guess you guys are too used to getting your way or something. I guess having temper tantrums worked to get the server merges in the first place, so you must be thinking more tantrums will get you CH merged to. Who knows. EME does seem to act like the parents of troubled children, so yeah, maybe the tantrums will work.

Ironically you were the one doing the whining on the forums before you quit, I don't understand the hypocrisy. It's clear at this point that you're saying these things just to provoke people without any intelligent input on the whole situation.

Most people here are not even throwing temper tantrums, they're writing thought out and heartfelt posts while you're storming in like an angry witch insulting them.

Both you and I know how the eme team is, you siding with them now just to spite people is pathetic.

You don't have anything intelligent to add to this matter nor do you play this game anymore so I kindly ask you to stop trolling and go back to being an angry mother or whatever.


To stay on-topic I'm bringing back another Sean's zinger, back in march, what a classic

armchair_datascientists.jpg?width=1088&height=531

All I got from that was: "Whine cry, whine cry, EME lies, go away." No, not much intelligence there.

You're having a tantrum when there are plenty of options and the server might get merged anyway. I also love how you people always think you're way or the highway. You've completely ignored the posts of the people happy that CH isn't merging. The fact that you're a bunch of spoiled brats, doesn't ring untrue just because you don't like the truth.

Obviously, there was a reason they didn't plan on merging CH. You're assumption that Sean is completely lying is pretty pathetic given that if CH were really dead, I highly doubt EME would have left that server alone. So stop trying to be an arrogant [filtered] (Equitas wannabe) and grow up son.

You really are a good example to follow for your children.

Keep up the good work.

Your comebacks are total trash. You should really get out more. Unlike you, my children have a grasp of reality. They aren't preaching to force people onto CH just to demand a certain number of players on all servers. Yeah, force people onto a roleplay server. You're absolutely brilliant!

And why keep people trapped on RP server? Because of 10-20 people who didn't host role play event on server for like 2 years? It would actually make more sense to merge CH with other PVE servers and ten create new RP server and offer free transfers to those who want to play on RP server.

As someone mentioned above, most of us ended up in CH because it was first on the list for a long time and it also had tag RECOMMENDED.

If Roleplay was an ever present thing and the main interest in the server I think many players would have jumped ship to another server for PVE, but RP hasn't been a serious happening in the server for years, so for many, many being most of the server population, CH is just another PVE server, perhaps a more casual one, but not a legit RP server. As for the (Recommended) tag in the server selection, that only applies to server of low population and it's something I've seen in other MMORPGs, new players get baited by that into a barren server. There was a time when CH had the (High) tag, though.
In EU you get event servers where you can gear up nicely and then transfer to a server of your choice, you get REAL leveling events that help new players to catch up faster/older players gear up alts easier. They get more special even dungeons as well, so while Gameforge is highly P2W they still care about their playerbase not just as wallets they can milk, like it has been the past year or so for EME.

Consider they released the information of the server merges on a Friday when most of the staff was busy at PAX, on a long weekend so they wouldn't even have to bother replying to threads on Monday, so yeah. Transfers open, people move around because no other chance (CH players) and then MAYBE on Friday we get to say something on their stream long after the damage has been done.

This game has never been alive and well if that is a way you measure it.

September 2012 had his first merge from 11 servers to only 3 servers. That was only 4 months of TERA being launched on NA. A great failure if you take a good thought on that.

TERA PC at launch was even worst than console version :v

Because it was a buy-to-play game with subscription and the content it had was only up to kelsaik nest, shortly after they made available chrono scrolls that were like our elite vouchers that gave game time and could be traded ingame, compared to console release that is f2p and has more content.

That's what their "data" and poor judgment tells them. For them a "lively" game is told by number of player login a day, time spent online and not actual activity during that time. There are many that log just to check brokered sales and relist (including broker bots), to keep the weekly buff and claim credits for emporium. "Oh look, we had # number of players logging into the server today! How alive and active!" I doubt that they investigate and compare those numbers to that of other F2P MMORPGs with an actual active playerbase.

If you're going to give CH special treatment because it's an "RP" server, then try actually enforcing that it's an RP server with your staff members. Hold actual RP events (not just community-held ones like Desire's Casino night), enforce the traditional RP rules, and deal with people who openly troll and ruin the few RP events that pop up.
None of your staff members actually RP, and none of your staff members frequently play on or visit CH.
Don't give us "special treatment" when you barely know we exist.

I'd rather you have assumed that CH would be merged in with the other PvE servers and then gauge what the community's response was to see how many people really were gung-ho on having their own RP servers. As it is, now all you've done is annoy almost the entire server and will be paying money to host an even more dead server once the mergers open up. Those who RP will even move in hopes of finding a more active community.

I would love to see them enforce rp in ch. I alos like the other persons idea about making it to where people can only transfer to ch. I do miss the events the gm's used to host, the costume contests, the campfires pointing the way to the events and so on.
To sum up the nuts and bolts, bricks and mortar of this problem:

Respect RPers, increase the story line, raise the level caps and improve the servers.

sad thing is, there are people in the forums that feel like we don't have a say if we rp, or do solo content, that the only acceptable way to play is running dungeons, even if we do pay.

They won't start enforcing RP now and even if they do that to appease the roleplayers and justify keeping CH excluded, it won't last long, and their contribution with possible events wouldn't be one of quality since they don't even play the game in the main way, much less any experience in serious roleplay.

I've seen several people who stay in-character during their active time online.

Maybe if more of these people saying RP is dead started RPing more, it wouldn't be dead.

I know more than enough people on CH that are happy it's being left alone.

Not nearly enough to justify not merging it with the other PVE servers, those who want the merge and will have benefit from it vastly outnumber those who don't want to.
And about the "criticizing" about not playing the "the right way" that roleplayers get, dude...we all get criticism about so many things we like in this life to actually stop and give a damn about it. Like I mentioned it before, if you want to roleplay, you just do it, pay no mind to the haters, and that is something you can do in any server.

Being one of the few people against the merge (once again, my problems with the game have nothing to do with population density), I'll only say this much:

RP is dead? Have you seen what happens when most people try to RP in the open? You really think people want to deal with that on a regular basis?

Being in a server with RP tag or not wouldn't change your situation and that of the few RP groups left in CH. Roleplayers make their own space for enjoying their activities. There are several areas in the game with near 0 player population even in active servers where people can roleplay in peace. Of course if you try roleplaying in Velika or Highwatch you will get morons interrupting it, its basically asking for it considering those are player hubs. People who want to do social activities like roleplay and whatnot, just make it happen, not everyone needs a "safe haven", a bubble protecting them from harm to just do what they want to do.

For those who keep pointing out "read when you join a server" "why did you join a RP server" I think for most the playerbase of CH we just joined because was the first server in the list that said PVE whether had a RP tag or not. In true RP servers most of the population stay "in-character" during their active time online, that is something I rarely ever saw in CH, RP servers have an ever present GM moderating behavior that goes against role playing and even names can get moderated for the sake of a role playing environment and CH lacked all of that. CH is the RP server just by tag and not by practice, something that was never enforced officially by GMs or the entirety of the server population.

are there mmorpg's out there that have true role playing servers? I only ask cause I never heard of any before like the ones you describe

I read that for a time World of Warcraft had official rules in RP realms, when inappropriate names or OOC chat in general chat, chat unrelated to game (irl topics) in open channels would get a warning or temporal ban. While those rules don't apply anymore in that game, they still keep an active roleplay community. Maybe because it is a subscription game and players take things more seriously in there.

Sadly they released the information about the upcoming server merges on a friday, a friday when also most of their staff is busy with PAX, to excuse them from responding to our discomfort with the situation given that they don't work on weekends + monday is a holiday. This thread and all the backlash from this mess up will be "ignored" and buried by EME.

I'm actually happy CH isn't being merged. I know I'm the odd one out here, but that's my personal opinion. I never have issues finding parties for dungeons and events.

If people can transfer out of CH though, that'll become a different story.

With a server merge you would get twice as many, that's for sure. If the free server transfer is also available for CH you might expect the availability of parties to decrease, unless you always play with the same groups and those stay in the server.

dont cry !!! 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.

Yes and lose all of my bank tabs and wardrobe tabs and potentially gold and characters depending on how many free char slots we get. Delightful :)

You can always buy more character slots and wardrobe slots, cosmetics with CASH!- EME
If anything, CH players DESERVE to know exactly on what data you are basing this travesty if you are to keep them excluded. I am sure EME has never given a solid justification for MANY of their questionable decisions but it's never late to do things the right way.
The decision to not merge CH currently is based on our data-driven observations, not conjecture or opinion about the health of the server. We will be monitoring the transfers in and out of the server to determine if there is reason to pivot on this decision and merge it along with the other PvE servers. Again, free transfers will open up on Thursday, September 6th after maintenance concludes.

What kind of data? taking in account only players online whether they are just standings still or actually doing

Cant wait to see everyone leave ch the second those transfers open up. Be realistic that is whats going to happen. Would certainly like to see these 'data driven observations' as they dont match what the playerbase is observing ingame.

We'll let the data decide what happens; THAT is realistic.

What data though? because having a number of people in-game, not doing anything afk or simply chatting doesn't account for overall player activity. Would you know that there is only a selected number of players playing content, on different characters but again, just a selected number of players? Whose activity would be lesser than that of the servers that are to be merged? Sadly we are kept in the dark to all of your decisions until they are made effective, with players having no say in things that will affect them. Did you even think of holding a poll for CH players who want or not the merge? and make it something precise limited to only CH players that are eligible to vote.
Some GM said that they wouldn't discriminate any RP in their game, but by keeping CH apart from the rest they are already discriminating. Furthermore they are damaging the population with this moronic decision as many of the few active players will seek to transfer into the new merged servers, leaving CH in a worse state than it is now, a deader server that by any TRUE management and business point of view should be closed or merged.
Are you all in EME staff so stupid? Do you even have an ever present GM for RP events in CH? No, you damn not, and that is mandatory for a "RP" server. RP scene in CH is even more dead than the PVE activity and has been FOR YEARS, but you are never present in the server to know that, you don't play your game and yet make stupid decisions like this. PVE players in the server that FAR outnumber any RP'r were hoping you would merge CH altogether with TR and AV to be part of a more active playerbase when it comes to PVE. It is PVE players that pay for elite, it is PVE players that pay for your new mounts and weapon skins, not RP'rs. Players that want to RP don't need to be secluded in their own server, they can do it anywhere, you don't need a fancy RP tag for it, because EME doesn't care about the RP in game, its been years since they organized events, and they wont start again now. There are many PVE players in CH that simply dont transfer because they have too many geared characters and gold/items to bother, and this merge was their best opportunity to have more players for PVE content, to STAY playing the game.

The bug catching gathering nodes are in the game files but the assets were never used for the game release :/
I've heard many players that do the raid weekly that in the past couple days they have got less loot from the last phase, the x3 superior etching boxes, superior noctenium and other items didn't drop at all. Is this true? did EME do a unannounced change to the loot table of the HH raid?
The current staff sucks at making events so yeah, without Spacecats around to make good events we will keep getting this garbage in the future.
Looking forward to what "amazing" idea they come up for the anniversary events...

Tbf FFXIV's version if Amaterasu is almost a direct rip from TERA.

You could argue that both the wolves in Tera and FFXIV are based on the character from the Okami game that is based on Japanese lore.
In all honesty they would make more money out of selling race changers than expecting people to buy costumes if they race change >_> surely people aren't as enthusiast in changing race every week if they wont be able to use all their costumes.
Regal frostlion account mount is only for CE owners, the gold dragon weapon skins were given to those who subscribed to Tera for the first 3 months since NA launch, unrelated of regular or ce version of the game. If you dont have CE you only have the Terminus argon horse mount.
Who was the GENIUS behind the great idea to make apothecary Dyes to 1000 coupons when they aren't even tradeable AND remove the NPC summon items (Phargo, Schwab, Dimon, Monti)? Considering Elite status doesn't give traveler insurances since years ago, they could have at least made the items not to be traded.
For all I know the stances only consume RE when applied, but they don't spend or require RE while activated o_O

I think a perm fiery halo would be better as an event reward, don't you? (as long as it could be chosen, not random)

Either way I would love it, as well as the blue fiery halo.

This is the only ID I could find with a translated name, the rest of the IDs aren't named yet however I could post them if this one doesn't work or is temp.

Both temp and perm blue fiery halo are in the game files.

it was cool when we got that broken fane of kaprima (enemies didnt hurt but they were spongy as heck) that dropped horns and bloodrave weapons.
Well gold talents used to be 30-ish gold each, silver talents 70-ish gold, then they only went down because of how many people were getting the 6000 talents jackpot in the last strongbox event that made GT around 10g each, ST 30g.

Dyeable weapon skins would be amazing *-*
While Gameforge does a questionable p2w on the games they publish, they at least come up with interesting events/additions to their games. Tera over EU has had the league of levelers, dreadspire return, manahan leveling server, forsaken island return and now revamped kelsaik next 10 man raid:

I am sure they have more resources, people and permission from BHS to make things like this happen and it is disappointing that in our region we can't get stuff like this to happen.
The coloring is lame, they should be gunmetal, chrome or mate black for the animated ones :/ Hexapleon weapon skins.
what about kaia helmet or his cape?

The Kaia helmet, armor and cape were rewards for clearing HH30 but we didn't get those over NA. Dragonslayer set, for female characters looks like Kaia's outfit, for male characters looks like Elleon's outfit.

Makes me think that they just didn't care about that issue just to make people get the new hairstyles >_>
Zoknahal wrote: »
Not bugged. It is intended and designed to be that way. Some costumes do not follow the up-swept hairdo option.

Are you sure of that? x_x
Since the release of the costume I noticed something was off, that being that it wouldn't toggle the up-swept hairdo for the hairstyle I mainly use causing an ugly clipping, I don't know if other races share the same issue. The use up-swept hairdo is enabled in options and not I am not using any hair mods that conflict with it.

I know that I could use a back slot accessory to make the hair go up and avoid the clipping but I don't like to hide the weapon.
I just wonder if BHS or EME were aware that the costume was bugged when released.

actually was just wondering with the release of console if they'd do something similar again
also wonder if it be good for all consoles and pc
*thinking/hoping B)

I highly doubt it since this was just a leftover bonus from the time Tera was B2P with subscription, and since there aren't physical game copies of the console version, it wont do.
They would sooner remove the dye from the fashion coupon shop than improve the elite gift box loot >_>
Zerk tank was an idea until they added brawler, if they actually put effort into making it a dual class then brawler would have been ditched since that class only offers damage with no party utility compared to lancer and warrior that have party buffs.
Welp this thread became nothing else than a MUH ALLIANCE MASK rant. They wont put them in fashion coupons, never. So all the kids with their masks can hold on to their internet points and all the have-nots just look forward to grind dungeons to get them.

That's impressive. I'm sure En Masse is happy with your contribution. About the Velikan Gray, I miss having that as an option. I remember there being 3 mounts you could purchase from the stable master in Lumbertown. Now the Bay Gelding is dumped on us, and we don't have a say in the matter. I don't believe there was any real reason the shop was removed. It certainly didn't benefit anyone to do so, and it wasn't hurting anyone to have it there. I'd like to see it return.

The bay Gelding was the original lv 11 quest mount, later on early 2014 they made the 3 mounts available to choose but yeah, changed back to the bay so I only have the arcadian daple on an alt :c
We are getting the masks as new gear slot in a upcoming patch, both the echelon and exarch mask models, so look forward to that.
The respawn timer for that world boss is broken so it will only respawn with a server reset, meaning after a server crashes or after maintenance.
I wonder if they took a minute to think that with this change, the sales of race change vouchers are gonna plummet = less money coming in for them. People won't be buying again all their cosmetics they use with every race change ._.
They must be severely understaffed to not want to handle this "service" to the playerbase anymore.
RKE is RKHM, only last boss has an alternate fight mode but is essentially the same instance.
Maybe we get a permanent one in events, but since winter is close to an end i dont think we will get it perma til end of 2018 Q wQ

This is very nice! I can finally use the Eagle Helm on mains/alts without having to pay so much at the broker. But i think that 300 coupons for this kind of helm is a bit low? Why not at least 500? Or i am just exaggerating?

And i am really grateful for all the hard work put in there ( checking the items from the entire database and such ). Also, is there a chance to add this Priest Weapon Skin by any chance? I remember being able to use it some three years ago through some NPC reskin option and now i was able to find it again when leveling up a new priest.

That is the Dreamkeeper/Agnitor/Abyss/Bloodvision/etc weapon model, yeah i want those too added in the fashion shop soon, together with the fraywind models.
I hope you guys add the weapon models we see leveling 1-60,

Ninja's noctenium skin also seems to be exactly the same as the North Star skin.

Because those classes were added after alliance. Neither reaper, gunner, brawler, ninja or valk had noctenium gear.

No dude, it was going to be absolute BS, take away stats we already have and have to grind to get them back? that is moronic, also consider that the talismans were made to work around talents, that no other region has.
I agree, would be cool if EME would do what GF has been doing for some years and then put certain rare cosmetics for direct purchase, bundles even.
Although it was mentioned a few times to the EME staff that all the IDs for weapon models are in Tera Database, so for no reason they had to spend time digging the IDs manually to make them into skins for the fashion coupon shop. Of course we only need the base models, and not every recolor of the same, or maybe only one recolor of each base model and all their IDs are on that website.
