They removed the credit system. You no longer earn credits from those factions.
The low key ads for a 3rd party program that is against the rules in this are interesting.
I would also like to afk at the docks for free boxes more than once a week. :+1:

Beyond this weekend, we're going to leave this event on for the remainder of the month (ending on January 30). Starting in February

They are looking beyond January. They're just also being a bit vague about what the future plans are. Maybe they'll take it as an opportunity to run the double gear xp, tera rewards, and other vg related events. It is clear that they dont intend to keep the 2x vg rewards up all the time anymore so not knocking your feedback about that, just pointing out it's being replaced with something.

And yet no one learns.

No one learns that the way they do things will not get EME to take them seriously.

No one learns that there's not two sides. There's multiple, more than two.

No one learns (usually the same people over and over who are completely ignorant) that counterpoint (and others like myself) aren't EME White Knights, and they call them out for being so (which they should get banned for in the first place for call-outs).

It's threads like this that actually partially contribute to the death of the game, and honestly probably make EME staff not want to login to deal with the stupidity and toxicity found in this forum community. Geez. How many times must this be explained before anyone actually learns their lesson?

In my opinion, the post is justified. Eme has clearly given up on Tera PC and has dumped all of their eggs into the Tera console basket. RIP Tera PC.

If they had given up on Tera PC why did they put time into running the partnership/promotion?

I never said that I didn't think charging 50$ for a level 60 scroll wasn't a rip off; it's also pay-to-win in my opinion, and adding the $15 deal incentivised experienced players to purchase the pass for the sole purpose of re-selling the level 60 scroll on the trade broker as it has a better conversion ratio than gold:emp. You're aimlessly grabbing at straws to keep your 'counterpoints' going now. I'm out. pce

Your argument completely collapsed. At first it was "intended to take advantage of new/uninformed players" but now you're saying it "incentivised experienced players to purchase the pass for the sole purpose of re-selling". But if experienced players bought it to resell, they certainly weren't being "tricked" by the level 58 items you were complaining about originally. And if it's getting a "better conversion ratio than gold:emp" then doesn't that mean it actually does have value to people? But I thought you said "level 60 scrolls are worthless as people can easily level to 60 in a day"? So people think something worthless is a good broker investment? And now you're saying it's pay-to-win? If it's so worthless that it isn't even worth $15 (when it includes 15 days Elite), then what the heck are they winning...?

If you want some defensible "EME is greedy" complaints, how about these:

1) Cash shop prices have been increasing steadily.
2) Lootboxes don't have posted odds.
3) Lootboxes don't have failure caps.
4) Lootbox runner-up items are now mostly untradable, making it harder to get the item you want on the broker.
5) EME appears to be gradually phasing out account mounts.
6) The TERA Rewards Emporium, which is supposed to reward cash shop purchasers, has horribly out-dated rewards.

Don't just virtue signal to all the disgruntled people who will say everything and anything EME does is bad because EME is bad and they should feel bad. Make a real case. There's plenty to choose from.
I mean even if they were looking at reasonable things to complain about you could add to the list:

7) PvP Jackpot Rewards are terrible
8) Lack of communication and transparency when it comes to events not working out for w/e reason. (Santa event)
9) Endgame Dungeons not being profitable
10) Lack of pvp events/tourneys
11) Unannounced changes to dungeon loot. (Silver talent nerf)

But sure, go on. Set it off about a one day promotion that other than being poorly worded was not a bad deal. :)
Circuits is the CM for Closers but looks like she's stepping in to help out.

The eme staff is usually on vacation and inactive this time of year but it would be nice to have someone around to say when plans change and communicate with the players.

The Level 60 Scroll normally costs 4995 EMP and includes no gear.
30-days of Elite normally costs $14.95 (although this is 15 days, so cut it in half).

So, the claim that "this would run you well over 5,500 EMP" is met even without counting the gear at all. It's 74% off the price of the scroll + Elite, with gear thrown in as a bonus.

The "high-end gear" is compared to the nothing you normally get with a scroll (so you can kill your bears with level 1 gear?). I think you're getting hung up over nothing, to be honest.

I think the only problem with getting a lv 60 scroll to play right away is that...you don't have any gold for the skills. Like, if you included in the pack an emerald or two, that sure helps.

When you use a level 60 scroll, you get all the level 60 skills automatically. And then if you do the FoA storyline, you should get enough gold for the skills at level 61 and on.

??? no you dont. Do you even play this game ?

Level 60 Scroll
Upon use, this character instantly levels up to level 60 and gains all applicable skills. Not usable by characters level 60 and higher. No gold is granted with this item.

What does have to do knowing or not what that item do with playing the game?

Oh, right, you only make post to attack EME or users that don't share your hatred against EME.

Since you just called me out for no reason, enjoy the report. Another among many ! :)
Yes, you learn all the level 60 skills when you use the scroll. I just tested to confirm.

Seriously, [filtered] you for accusing me of lying and not playing the game, [filtered].

Accusing? Asking a question is accusing?

question : noun
a sentence or phrase used to find out information:

accusing: adjective
(of an expression, gesture, or tone of voice) indicating a belief in someone's guilt or culpability.

Calm yourself down next time before posting :+1: dont think A PC member should be using that kind of language

Yikes, man. I mean, Counterpoint was right, you were wrong. Do you even play this game? LOL

On topic, I think the wording for the gear is odd/wrong for sure. I get they're trying to help move new players through the story quest but I would have phrased it differently. I think if they run an event/promotion like this again they should consider using gems and glyph boxes, at the very least. If they're trying to bring in new players would be nice to see a small boost given to them. You may get all your 60 skills but I'm not sure you have enough gold to buy the level 61 skills unless you are further into the story quest. I usually just run SA when I level so I've forgotten exactly how much gold you earn as you progress. :c
Going off one of the weekly streams we had recently, the next event will be for new years/eve. Seandynamite said something like "Be sure to be logged in before your timezone hits new years" or something. If I have time I'll dig around for it.

Do you feel that EME cares? What is your opinion of the state of pvp rn counterpoint.

It's well known pvp is in a [filtered] state. A lot of adjustments need to be made by bhs and eme for things to significantly improve. This has been brought up by Lucky and myself numerous times. Not sure the need to question counterpoint about it.

I'd agree it was somewhat off topic, I apologize. But it is interesting to see other opinions other than just the two PC members that pvp. As I'm sure you're very aware yourself, the PC isn't not a homogenous group that share the same ideas. It was also more as an example to "EME caring."
It's not really different pc opinions that get in the way anymore. We can agree that pvp tournaments should make a come back and that pvp rewards are lackluster at best. Like Counterpoint said there's office politics and man power that needs to be sorted out before any serious change can be made. The unfortunate truth is bhs doesn't seem interested in promoting pvp content at all even with other regions asking for more. We're not stuck with "does eme care" with this one. It's a "does bhs care" issue which is pretty frustrating on its own.

Removed a couple comments from this thread about removing the VG merchant. Please don't start rumors. Revamping a store doesn't mean it's being removed.

Well to be fair, that is EME's fault for sending that message about "updating" the federation bills store but then completely turning around and canning that idea just to close it. How can you blame anyone when you say with the word "update" to the VG shop to not be taken with a grain of salt?
Not sure how you can say the vg shop, something that you gain credits for by playing the game, is similar to the fed bill shop.

The only way to regularly gain fed bills was to log in every day. Its easier to relocate items to a system that already has ways to get more of that currency in the game (like fashion coupons which drop from bams and stuff) instead of wasting time to find a way to include yet another currency into the loot table.

To say eme is going to do away with all the shops is a childish overreaction.
Since the game isn't complete, they may not want to have people showing off an unfinished product. Would be nice to have the option to stream it though.
There is a technical test coming later this month, emails about it went out to a group of players pooled from beta sign ups. A much larger beta test is planned for next year.
That is really unlucky. :/

Given how garbage the chance rates are, it is probably best to find an emp buyer and then use the gold to buy one off the tb. It might be more of a hassle but at least you get what you want.
I'm not rich enough to be kami. :c
There are no plans for a server merge before the end of the year.
Tera EU actually made a madeshift Alice Dress. Granted it was just a blue colored parlor maid outfit but at least its better then the middle finger we got. It also proves Gameforge has some control over the games costume content.
That dress actually caused a lot of outrage because EU sorta misled the community about what dress it was. I dont think a poorly made knockoff is an improvement.

I really like the eu event and it'd be nice to see something like that set up here. Unfortunately I think eme is short staffed. They're already down a person since Halrath moved to a different game. Once they're able to fill in everything hopefully we'll be able to see an improvement.

I often wished for an update to the reputation system to make it relevant again. BUT...

I brought this up a long time ago before the gear revamp and asked if they couldn't put feedstock or something in those shops to update them. I guess it's just too old of a system to be updated. :c

Art appreciation isnt the same as setting a price.

Let me explain something very basic that you seem to be unable to understand.

Art prices are set at what the artist is willing to accept and the consumer is willing to pay. If no one was commissionin the artist then maybe the price is too high or some other factor but that is up to the artist to decide.
As an oil painter and someone who is about to graduate with a fine art degree I can really appreciate the amount of ignorance being blasted by @PhoenixKiss

Mixing the combat system of Tera with massive amounts of content with a game such as WOW, appears to be too large of a hurdle for developers to take.
BHS cycles through developers like crazy seems to be part of the issue. There's a lot of content that's removed and cant/won't be updated because the team that put it together isn't there anymore and the current team can't figure out or won't take the time to update the old code. When eme sent a request to bhs to make mchm extreme mode that was pretty much the reply they got. "It's too old, can't fix it." It'd be nice to see some of the old events and dungeons brought back but I don't see it possible with how bhs seems to operate.

One of my favorite old events was blast from the past since it was a fun way to kill time while helping new players level. It's unfortunate something like that can't be brought back into the game.
There used to be a low level dungeon that was really pretty. It had dragons in it. I don't remember the name or details other than that.

Temple of Tomerity was a dungeon that gave the first set of uncommon glyphs. The party took turns soloing bams.

Sirjukas Gallery was the second dungeon that gave uncommon glyphs. You had to do some strange but fun mechanics, like jumping, to earn points.

Nexus was laggy open world content that spawned mobs and bams you killed for credit. They also added nexus traverse which gave enchantment materials.

Manayas Core hm is the hardest dungeon in the game. Being able to run it early on in VM1 was very rewarding since weapons and stuff dropped there which sold for a lot of gold.

Fane of kaprima and Balders temple were both endgame dungeons at one point with a hardmode. Clearing nm gave you the sleeper gear set. Clearing the hm gave you dreamkeeper.

I think that's about it from when level 60 was the cap. I think the only other thing worth mentioning is alliance which was removed for skycastles.

How are players so surprised when Seandynamite mentioned removing the shop was a possibility in early November? https://forums.enmasse.com/tera/discussion/comment/187758#Comment_187758

I think moving the items to the fashion coupon shop is a good move. It removes a shop that was awkwardly added to the game and consolidates cosmetic items together. The fed bill shop items will still be accessible and easier to get for new players since it's faster to earn fashion coupons than fed bills.

I think it would be good if that wont be temporally thing and they should remove fed and fashio shops from the game. Instead of them add their stuff and new stuff in Vanguard shops.
I don't mind the fc shop since they drop from bams and stuff. If the vg shop was easier to update than the fc shop I could see why eme would want to consolidate there. I do wonder what the plans are for the fed bill items down the road since like you said it's temporary. I don't think those items will get removed but where do they think is a good permanent home for them?

The maint was to fix an issue with the elin gunner box. There may be an announcement about the fed bills soon™.
The dyeable Elin Swat Uniform from the Elin Garment box is not tradeable
@spacecats @Halrath

Another problem, it seems the elin gunner box is account based. That means if you created your elin gunner, then claimed the item from item claim, didn't like how your elin looked, and remade it you will not get another box upon recreation.

Is this intended? Halrath's previous leveling event involving catalysts did not do that. The boxes are not bankable so they should not be account based.
Probably account based because of the free elite. Not sure if you can get a new box

EME keeps saying no, but everyone wants it super bad. =__=

doesn't matter. EME is superb at not listening to us; their ear protection game is always on point.

It makes sense to not sell it while it's bugged though. This is an item that would have been in a loot box so, unless you're really lucky, you are looking at spending quite a bit of cash on a product that doesn't function as it should. Some players might be okay with the weird behavior of the dress but if you're paying a premium for an item then it should work properly.

I guess it just strikes me as odd that they care so much when they regularly release costumes that outright replace femani legs and have no tail holes for the elins, leading to seriously horrific clipping issues with the right tails. They're perfectly OK with doing that, they're fine with the scarves that regularly shoot off into infinity, but this is where they draw the line? I don't buy it, sorry.
They've published things that changed how castanics look, too. If the clipping looks too weird, I dont buy it but it's not really a bug. Clipping and femani legs are just laziness.

The only reason why the scarves stay (I'm guessing, it is odd to allow one but not the other) is because the bug isn't consistent and you can get it to stop by greeting the person wearing it or having them take it off and put it back on. The dress is consistently buggy. It doesn't matter what you do, it still goes all over the place.

No idea. I've never seen the dress, or heard of the bug, but that's from Sean himself saying it won't be made available in our region. Apparently it's at least on the same level as some of the scarfs in-game, and could possibly be a lot worse.

here's a video of it

Oh, didn't notice you had already posted something. A bit disappointing, was hoping to see something really weird.

There are other videos that are more obvious but yeah basically the skirt bugs out like crazy when another player is next to them. It has other odd things it does, too. They tried to make the skirt "cloud like" but messed up completely. After it was released eme asked BHS to fix the dress so it could be sold in our region. It just isn't a priority for the developer.

I agree with eme on this one though. The dress isn't worth selling as it is.

What type of feature could they add to elite to make it feel more valuable?

Few years ago, being elite you had a monthly gift, either a mount or a costume, etc, something worth between 15-25k gold ingame. I'd say nothing we get on the elite perks today worth as much as it did back then.

Yeah, I remember when they had the monthly gift. It was usually a mount or costume. They used to do those elite gem bags, too. If I'm remembering this right the daily gift box was what replaced the monthly gift. It's suppose to equal the same amount of value without tanking the tb price of a cash shop item.

To be honest, unless if you get a felicity, then the daily gift kinda sucks.

I wasn't very impressed with the change back then. Ccb and stuff are pretty common in our region so I just don't see the value in it. If you have decent luck then it's been better recently. I'm not sure about bringing back the monthly gift since I remember there were threads of pissed off players every month complaining about it.

So, best guess, as we approach that 4-8 week deadline he gave us we should be hearing if there's still hope of a 2017 beta soonish. I think no news means they're not at a point to give a date for console beta and they probably want to be 100% sure before saying something.
There was/is an issue with authentication that could be causing the problem. You may need to open a support ticket if you continue to have trouble buying emp through steam.

For a while eme did offer a free costume or mount but players complained that it tanked the gold value of that item. Basically people didn't want to invest in emp items because there was no way of knowing what would be the next free gift. The daily gift box we have now is what "replaced" the monthly gift we no longer have.

counterpoint must be a GM hiding in a regular account, or a mayor White Knight.

Honestly, the fact I'd even need to point out the so-[filtered]-obvious hyperbole in an article like that, and be accused of being an employee or white knight for doing so, is amazing. Just amazing. That's the world now -- every issue can only possibly have two sides, and if I'm not taking the "player's side" (even when it's full of obvious nonsense), then I'm on "EME's side" even though I just finished saying they did something incredibly stupid.

I don't work for them. (And no offense, but thank god.)

Yeah, everyone should know by now that Treeshark aka Counterpoint doesn't work for them anymore.

(this is a joke)

So what's the point of the player council? Were they the selected players? If not why have a council
We were not the selected players.

Interestingly enough, the player council was not given any information about this upcoming patch. We're usually brought on board a day or so before the patch is released and even then it's usually very vague.

The rumor I've heard is that EME trusted a group of players to help put together the guides and patch notes. This lead to people who had not signed an NDA, be vetted by eme in anyway, get sensitive information. They may or may not have shared it with a friend or two. Word got out.

Tried to keep it vague so there's not call outs.

That's a let down. You'd think their tiny bodies would get shredded just from using scattershot let alone balder's vengeance.

Ah well. On a more important issue. Any news on a male brawler?

As stated in the dev roadmap, it's coming. There is no other information until the roadmap is updated. I'm not holding anything back, I literally have no other information (everyone is busy getting the rest of this year and beginning of next year's content ready). I'd treat it like a "someday" until we have an announced timeframe for it.

Can console news be added to the road map? :3

Yes! We can work it out so a GM is there to monitor.

I'd also like to contribute to the prize pool. Please check your direct messages @Pumpedd :)
So we can get help for other pvp events now?

Not this Friday, but we will be doing a Twitch stream about the new gear before it comes out in our version.

Can we get a console Q&A going for this weeks stream with @Denommenator ? :3

i doubt , what they said to us since they announced ? I can answer , nothing , so i doubt that they will say something until they are 1 week from Beta or even less . Thats sad cuz theres alot of ppl waiting for something , but pretty sure they dont know about nothing to tell us
You never know! Last week he mentioned having a console q&a stream so maybe we'll get some info soon. c:

There was a stream recently where Spacecats said Bhs won't be making costumes designed by the players anymore. Bhs said it's too time consuming.
These are absolutely beautiful. Great work.
They posted info about consoles

Honestly not sure why you guys come in here singing your praises when you haven't done anything to improve na's routing issues. Shouldn't need a VPN or anything else to have stable/consistent ping and not get disconnected from the server.

sorry pal but we dont have access to the resources nor the money (maybe bernkastel does idk) to fix eme's terrible servers. the servers themselves we can't fix but we can make ur ping better
Why not fix my isp first then and the network between here and the servers

why dont we just make the servers peer2peer so u dont have ping issues

I don't know what that means but if you guys aren't good enough to fix those issues I guess I'm down

Neither of you have the technical standing to comment on how to most appropriately make the change in their technical environment. No one in IT would take this kind of "it's trivial, takes a few minutes, there's no downside" advice seriously, particularly from someone who isn't intimately familiar with their setup. You simply cannot know. What you would do on your home computer or something does not apply.

Yes, and the change in the patch is not what was being referred to. But okay.
With all due respect this comment is just idiotic. Packet filtering can be done on $20 routers or Raspberry Pi you buy on Alibaba. Your comment here basically just show your uninformed you are in regards to computers.

And without knowing what setup they have, you can't know what is involved or what all the risks might be. Certainly, you haven't considered the testing that would be demanded to make any sort of configuration change in a live environment, regardless of how "trivial" you might think it is. You don't just make changes to packet filtering on a whim without performing adequate tests and discussing it with other impacted parties.

This isn't a question of how technically simple a concept is. It's a question of how IT departments work in the real world. Even simple changes have to be carefully managed.
Like I said, you are talking out of your [filtered] because packet filtering is the first line security measure in network security. Dunno why you are talking about IT departments because clearly you never worked in one. You know who is working in IT right now? Me. Do you know what I will do if memeslash type exploits happen in my workplace? Someone will add a filter right away as a band-aid and then we wait for whoever's responsible for the code to fix it.

On a public live-facing system with thousands of customers running code you didn't write in the first place, without consulting the developers to make sure it won't mess something else up you didn't anticipate? Well, you're either brave or foolish. In this case, it so happens that you have intimate knowledge of how the exploit works so you can say conclusively what the root cause is. But I wouldn't be that brave, and I certainly wouldn't take your word for it.

yikes how about that part where they refuse to communicate with the developers? can't really consult the developers if you throw a tantrum every time they're mentioned.

it's not intimate knowledge

its just

dispatch.hook('memepacket', 1, event => { setinterval(dispatch.toserver('memepacket, 1, event), 1)})

its that simple
But I wouldn't be that brave, and I certainly wouldn't take your word for it.

then what's stopping you from googling it or going on discord to literally message the developers to find out more?

the proxy is literally open-source. anyone can read the code

so you're either unwilling, lazy, or ignorant. or maybe all three, who knows.

I'm lazy

if you were truly lazy you wouldn't have quoted my post. checkmate.

None of these are real. These are Pumpedd's suggestions, written down as if they were part of patch notes. It's a wish list.

Ah, that makes more sense.

Please send these to BHS! :o

Pls no
Eme corrected the typo on this page but for some reason it wasn't fixed on the other. http://tera.enmasse.com/news-page/patch-notes/patch-580301a
I like all the theories so far. I will say the return of mchm isn't likely since on an earlier stream they said bhs didn't want to work with a 5 year old dungeon. There is another dungeon with the argon queen in it though.
