They do if enough money is involved.
They don't care about Americans either, only their wallets. Just like any other company.

Well, well, well...

monster hunter event

if you want eu's event, go play eu

Because why wish for something that looks nice for our region too, right?
Better to leave all our progress behind and move to a place with higher ping.
Seems legit.

Before we have any decent Anniversary events (Aka, events that please both PvE and PvP players), we'd need BHS/Krafton to hire more employees for EME.
Otherwise I honestly don't see it happening.

Both Portuguese and Spanish would be nice additions.

But did normal players knew to save up for a 24h enchant event?

Yes, it was announced at the same time for everyone with the Strongbox Jackpot Event.

https://tera.enmasse.com/news/posts/tera-anniversary-strongbox-jackpot-event

In case this is what you are insinuating, any event that can influence the in-game economy like this is not announced to Player Council in advance.

(That being said, based on my time in Discord general chat, there were a number of players who were really hoping/expecting a strongbox/enchanting event would be part of the anniversary, so had starting saving up in anticipation/speculation before the event was announced. During the first week of the anniversary (amidst the complaints about the first events) Rox left some hints in chat. But nobody knew for sure it would happen until the announcement above.)

Glad to know.

That was by far the best event I've seen in years.

It's really sad that this is what people consider "events" now, let alone a good one.

If you have some good idea on good events, let us know and share your thoughts !

Quite sad how discord took most, if not all of the activity from here.
Used to be quite more active and fun.

xD! I think most of these people who are happy is the ones that swipe there credit cards while the other are people who heavily grind.

there a difference by a land slide but I wouldnt call it the best event we still have what a week or two left to see where this goes.

alot of people just currently started the game and miss the events but the ones who been playing longest benefit which is fine tho xD but I hope at the end of the event they do every thing over cause the feedstock extremely hard to get I ain't going to lie I want to throw money at the pay to win boxs because the low chances of getting feedstock from dg

Hope that u r joking... ''most of these people who are happy is the ones that swipe there credit cards while the other are people who heavily grind.''

nice joke...

I think they meant only people that swipe or heavily grind got the rewards from the event.
While new/somewhat new/casual players got the short stick.

I mean OP just said they liked the event and hope they improve every year.
Let people say they liked something they did like?

Kaitor server is not having this problem at all.

I was positive it was the ISP??

Not once have I ever yet thought it was someone's ISP. Over the past two weeks with the disconnect / server down issues I randomly sampled logging into Kaitor when I could not log into Velika. Each and every time, and much to my surprise, Kaitor was 100% accessible - and with no so called "invisible queue".

I was being sarcastic since the excuse is always the ISP.

@BlackHeartNoire said:
I can't really justify this free elite thing we got, as the servers have been down so often one would miss out on a good chunk of this elite offering.
Sure the coin freeze is nice, but it doesn't make up for the fact we are missing out on the elite benefits every time the server goes down too.

Considering how long this has being going on + the various questionable in-game changes...
One would have to be brain damaged or a masochist to keep playing this crap.
Like my myself.

Must be the ISP as always.
Reason so many people from different parts of the world disconnect at the same time.
Perfect servers, correct?

Nothing new, they're not really active at the forums.
Would need to comment at their discord.

I'm sure most of us understand the current situation.
However...
Not like we had any such issues before the virus, correct?

Glad it was fixed. In case it happens to anyone else, if you're stuck on the server screen and can't enter any server, it usually means you're missing a patch. Worse case, if restarting the launcher doesn't fix it, you might need to delete the Live2-launcher.version file from your install folder to force the launcher to self-update. Otherwise, you could have a problem connecting to a bad patch server, and you should probably send a ticket so they can find the culprit.

I did several methods you posted in other locations and it didn't work out, what to do ? support does not help unfortunately.. Glad if you can help me counter.


It's from 2018...

What my problem with this is, is that there are no updates. Twitter is quiet, even though the game is still broken (just tried to log in, stuck on loading screen with no loading bar). There are no updates on the forums and we all just sitting waiting, with no idea what is happening or what to expect on the time. The "issues are fixed now" about 40 minutes ago are a joke. Also, why are the servers still up if there is an issue? Take the servers down and fix the issue, so people don't try to log in and run to the forums to figure out whats going on.

The forums are a joke.
If you'd like any updates that aren't given by the player council, I'd recommend discord.

Seems like an accurate description.

I started playing an idle game on iOS. So whenever I have a little waiting time during the workday, I click on it. The ingame shop is quite optimistic. Monthly substription up to 28€, single payments up to 100€. I'm not paying this as this is an "idle game" (per definition).

Let's turn this around. Every game is something you do for relaxing in your free time. And everything does cost money, even when playing basketball you need shoes or pay a club to play indoors. Now compare how much you're willing to spend for your free time.

For me, Tera is still one of my cheapest hobbies. Even hiking does cost more (smartphone app, equipment, hotel, transfer, etc.). When I was shooting firearms, costs did explode due to ammo prices. Even meeting friends, having dinner and some drinks in a bar is going fast up for just one evening.

The trick is to look at the own budget and compare your recreational spendings. It's up to you, if Tera is worth it.
Because unlike other games, in Tera you can farm gold and still get EMP. We still can buy shop items from other players.

First off, your examples give you far greater benefits than Tera ever will. Most of the other stuff you mention will make you more fit and learning to shoot a gun irl I'd say is more important than playing some online game.

So, you like to throw cash at your passive hobby, great for you. However, I'd say most people want to invest cash into a game they know will be around for a while and where the publisher at least pretends to care. I do love how you explain down to us about how much going out costs and so on, but you're missing most of the point. I've played plenty of other online games, and EME is one of the greediest companies I have ever seen. Mostly all dyeable versions of their costumes and mounts with benefits come in loot boxes that people have spent hundreds on trying to get something rare. Their system is beyond sad, tremendously greedy and simply gets old; all while EME calls players "spoiled" and tells them they don't even want to bother with a Community Manager, because Tera players simply don't deserve one.

I mean it's hard to tell which is stupider, the playerbase or the company.
I can kind of empathize with EME for how bloody spoiled the playerbase is (not by EME, granted), how little it appears they know about the game, and how little influence they would have over its direction even if they did know what is up. I feel like the people who knew anything about TERA left a long time, the original devs probably got sacked, most EME is probably different by now, and LOL I'm in the process of cashing out so I can log back on after the ingame economy has inevitably crashed and I can be rich. I expect everyone who's rich to continue to spend money like they're used to after it crashes so eventually I'll be rich in comparison.

Well, good luck with that. I sold a bunch of stuff and can't even be bothered to log back in to waste it on lootboxes like I had planned. I do blame EME, because they pretty much give us all the middle finger and tell us straight up that they don't want to bother with the community. Give them your cash then stfu. Just like how they can't even be bothered to play the game, moderate anything or even seem to care about any of it. Just more evidence that they know something we don't know and don't want to bother on a game they know has no future or hope.

Maybe they do have a high turnover rate, but that is just another reason to move on already. The only thing keeping most players there is the fishing and that will only last until people whine and cry enough for them to get rid of afk fishing to force players back into playing dungeons. Of course that won't work, so yeah, it will be interesting.

I can't blame them for not wanting to bother with the community

Well, golden gift boxes are out (I think) so now, people can throw their cash at those. Maybe after a grand or two, you to can get that new mount to fly in Exodor! LOL

It's adorable how a problem was created to later sell the solution.
Typical...

To answer your question in the simplest way possible.
1. Proxy is a 3rd party program. Skill prediction is not a VPN and it will not reduce your ping.
However, skill prediction will help players with high ping greatly.
2. As long as you use ethical modules, it's tolerated by EME.
3. The forums is not a recommended place at all to talk about this. I recommend asking around on discord.

Ultimately, if people really want to send a message, they have to stop buying lootbox items at all even with gold. But yeah, I guess odds of that happening are pretty slim, so...

Indeed.

@Terraforming said:
I opened 48 Emulator lootboxes (5300 EMP worth) and all I have to show for it are completely useless Metamorphic Emblems (why is this even in the prize pool?). Why is there no transparency regarding the odds with these boxes? Seriously this Black Friday "sale" feels more like a Black Friday SCAM.

I agree the rates should be disclosed.
However, seriously, if the rates were anywhere near decent the companies wouldn't be afraid to reveal it.

It is always, I'm afraid, the ISP's fault.

@Christin said:
Yeah, most players just want to have fun, and lately, everything really has been for the extreme end gamers. Granted, there are a lot of extreme end gamers out there, but the majority of players are casual players that see this game as an endless grind. No doubt they are simply overwhelmed even if they get to 65 and call it quits. I think if I had started recently, I would just move on to. That entire card system is ridiculous along with experience points, item xp, partners, and all of the rest of that nonsense. Having level 68 gear (no matter if it's good or not) be 250g is just so beyond pathetic and sad. New players try to buy needed weapons and see a flood of 68 gear sold as though it is trash. How did Krafton not know that this is how it was going to be? Gear is still sellable even though they acted as though the new update was going to solve the problem of players just buying their way through everything. They made it seem like players were going to have to grind for their own gear. So, really nothing has changed except that the green gear is thrown around like trash, and soon, the blue gear will follow. Just shocking really.

Well, after all these years of bad decisions, etc...
It's clear they don't play their own game. So how would they know?

Just make people grind new gear and buy new innerwear.
For myself looks like: "Let's keep pushing, see how far we can go."
On the other hand, let's see if that feedback will actually have any value.

At any rate, what's done is done.
Guess we can all "enjoy" this pinnacle of disgrace patch.

That's because the new patch sucks [filtered] and swallows!
Seriously, never saw anything bad like this in almost 6 years.

Basically, it's like being a customer at a restaurant.
You like the restaurant and goes there often.
Now, the dessert is expensive and tastes bad.
You give feedback.
Next time you purchase the dessert, it's still expensive and it still tastes bad.
You already purchased, disliked and gave feedback.
What's the use in complaining you're unsatisfied if you keep purchasing it?

I have this "Error fff0:0000" problem now also since the Oct 29 patch they did on tuesday. Tried the repair in the launcher a few times.

I also tried running the game in windows 10 and windows 7, both gave the same error. Closed down all antiviruses, all graphics overlays like msi/riva and still won't load. The game crashes at startup and gives that error. My win 10 and 7 use different display driver versions and all round are very different so the problem isn't the OS, its something inside the game folder that is crashing it which repair should fix if there was a corrupt file?

I have another old PC with the game on it which I haven't updated for several months, I may try that if have some extra bandwidth but can't spend several gigs to test that out right now. I don't have that KB4515384 installed either.

This game is a total mess, I have no idea how its still profitable to keep running.

Suggest copying the tera folder to the old pc in that case.

Regarding profit, I'd presume loot boxes.

I see.
Did you disable windows game mode?

Did you try setting/increasing your virtual memory?
Seemed to help in my case.

I just love how they try so hard to fill up our banks and inventory with all of this junk. Every update brings more and more to fill our banks with. They are so obvious with it to. Cards don't even stack and all kinds of new gear along with enchant materials to take up space. New players must just feel so overwhelmed when they start and see how far they need to go. Everything is so rng in this game. Can't even have an event without making all of the prizes pretty much rng. The constant gambling does get a bit old after a while.

From someone that also plays Closers, it seems the idea is:
The more [filtered] clogging your inventory, the more tempted you'll be to spend money on inventory/bank slots.
Regarding rng... I mean, even information from EME tends to be rng.
And we know Koreans love rng like a druggy loves their drugs.

Ok thanks, i soón get banned,so i thank you be4 the ban.

Instance match has been difficult for dps for years.
Usually a fast queue with a healer/tank.

Elitism 101:
1. Kicking players that do not know mechanics nor basic english.
2. Kicking players with incorrect crystals.
3. Kicking players without damage. (No dps meter required, able to notice if, for example, a sorcerer is casting fireball continuously.)
4. Kicking players unable to tank.
5. Kicking players unable to heal.
6. Etc.
Basically, just spend 1h+ in a single dungeon for a possible disband.

Been there, done that.

@counterpoint said:
The hard turn from leveling content to endgame and community expectations therein has been a constant problem with this game that's partly on the developers and partly on the veteran player community. There's a very heavy "you should already know what you're doing so you're not wasting our time" vibe, but most casual players are not going to go out and Google all these guides, videos, and other references so they can not make any mistakes on their first try. Most people just queue for end-game content the way they queued for leveling dungeons along the way and find suddenly that all the expectations changed. Even if they had managed to get into PvP, it has many of the same issues. This is basically what keeps the endgame experience something only for the core players -- the people who will go out of their week to seek out the information and "get good" so they can keep playing the game.

Of course the game also added a bunch of solo content and other things to do, but for people who primarily enjoy playing dungeons (it seems this player primarily leveled via dungeons), it's basically the end of the road if they're not willing to invest. The fact that they also released the level cap increase without a corresponding new zone/quest structure (as they did in the FoA expansion) also makes it less accessible to casual players, and they're either forced into endless grinding or again, dungeons, which have the aforementioned problem. The new zone they're adding now doesn't entirely help because it starts at level 68 and requires you to be geared up a fair ways, so you still have to bridge that gap on your own.

In any event, the video is a fair presentation of this person's experiences while playing the game, and while I don't think those experiences will apply to everyone, it's fair to say that it will apply to some people, and some of these problems are really difficult to change at this point. (For example, no matter what they do now to make endgame more welcoming to casual players, you're not going to easily change the attitude of the existing veteran players that's grown over years of passive reinforcement.)

Believe that's mostly meant metaphorically.
Anyone playing long enough is aware changes will most likely never happen.

Would be surprised if I'm mistaken.

it doesn't say much that I'm doing better than a team that no longer exists.

On the contrary. I think it says a lot that they no longer have a community team, and have dumped all that on a volunteer.

Honestly, if they had to start over now, there probably wouldn't even be a forum anymore and they'd just direct everyone to Discord instead. Times have changed.

The forums comprise the majority of EME's Google presence, so not sure why they'd want to rely on Discord so much. New players are looking to Google to find information and updated guides.

Well, play guides notwithstanding (that you find more on fansites), they're putting more troubleshooting information (and some simpler guides) in their Knowledgebase now, so that way answers to common Google questions still get found. (For example, they have a guide to the companion system.) They have someone on staff now whose job (among other things) is maintaining this Knowledgebase for all EME games. Right now they still use the forums for patch notes and some news posts, but I think honestly this is mostly for convenience of editing. This could maybe be moved to the website proper or the Knowledgebase as well. Besides that, even without an official forum, places like Reddit continue to exist.

I'm not saying that they're going to get rid of the forum anytime soon, but at the same time it wouldn't surprise me if it eventually ended up there. A number of newer games simply don't have official publisher forums anymore. Forums (Reddit aside) are becoming relics of the past.

As soon as yourself and @StarSprite stop posting/replying at the forums, might as well close it.

Accurate...

I fully agree with you.
But, unfortunately, it's profitable.
So it will not change.

I am not sure sitting at your comp doing 75 dungeons over 3 weeks to get a mount is actually something to brag about.

^^This.

Sugar coating it with words like "hardest of the hardcore" and "most dedicated" players doesn't suddenly make it an admirable achievement. "Saddest of the sad" and "most addicted" players seems more appropriate.

I mean, it's not like it will later be released in a loot box like mentioned previously.
So it's a sense of accomplishment.
Right?

Like the actual satisfaction of hunting world bosses for months only to have them nerfed so bad anyone can do it within a few days.
Or dungeons that get nerfed to the ground while still having obtainable titles.
Right?
