solo is fine until 65, after you play with people or you give up and quit tera

that's not always the case. it depends on the person and what they expect from the game. I still play and I haven't partied up with anyone since 2 years now, and that was to help my friend that came to visit and help them on iod for their priest to get their gear there.
there are plenty of things to do in tera as a solo player, you just have to think outside the box and outside of what is considered normal game play. solo may not be for everyone, but there are many that do and have fun at it.

I suspect those daily deals have made the EMP dealers more lively around the game, have they? Well it's a win-win situation for everyone, unless rates skyrocket stupidly.

like they haven't already? 70 usd?? I could see that price if they were account bound.

ur just cheap

its not that I am cheap, I just refuse to pay that kind of money on 1 character. I only get a certain amount of money a year from birthday and other holidays, and I have to spend my money carefully. im not able to work due to age and disabled. also we don't own any of the things we buy, we are basically just renting these items. if we get to keep the game and our items if or when the game shuts down, then it would be worth it to a degree. as long as people spend this kind of money just for 1 character, eme/bhs will continue to charge high prices for items. im happy that there are people out there that have the extra money to spend on these items to keep the game going, but not all of us can.
I have bought plenty of account bound mounts and costumes and items during the black Friday sales, so no. im not cheap. I just have to pick and choose wisely.

I have been playing solo for the past 4 years now, and I have loads of fun. it all depends on what you think is fun. there are things you can do that doesn't involve playing with others and theres less drama that way.
1. you can explore the world, try to get to unreachable areas and areas off the beaten path. there are some beautiful places out there.
2. play as a character you don't mind looking at all the time........

Everything you said was wonderful. Thank you for being a perfect example of a decent player.

thanks. I try to be the same in game as in real life.

If you don't agree with these prices, then don't buy. That's the bottom line and is how economics works.

There's a gaping hole in that line of reasoning.

The nature of this particular, uh... kerfuffle being what it is, the major takeaway might be the exact opposite of what we're trying to achieve with this discussion.

People buy lootboxes instead of taking buyout option: "Welp, looks like people prefer lootboxes after all. More lootboxes!"
People take buyout option at current price: "Huh... people really will pay this much for this? This could work to our advantage..."

Video games being as volatile as they are, simply "not buying" may do (and has done) far more harm than good.

I understand what you are saying, but I wont buy items just to keep the game running if im not happy with the prices, rng, and character bound. 50 usd for a weapon skin is just way too much for a character bound item....something you will never own. I quit spending money on tera when they quit making account bound flying mounts.

I certainly not saying to just blindly throw money at something for the sake of "support" (like someone suggested a few months ago when male brawlers dropped).

What I am saying is that not buying something but not expressing why you're not buying it may (and, in other games, has) lead to the wrong message being sent.

That's why we're here on the forums, right? "Power to the people" and all that.

sorry, I misunderstood you. I know bhs/eme has to have money to run the game, and I also know people will or wont buy items due to cost or not liking said items being sold. I do feel like the prices for items in the store has gotten way out of hand. once a weapon skin is designed and saved to a file, that's it for eme/bhs. they only take up a small amount of data, then its like copy and paste it, then add it to your files when you buy it. its not like they have to make each and every one of them each time someone buys one, yet they are charging 50 usd for one. if more people don't speak out with their voices or wallets and purses, items will only continue to increase in price as time goes on.
I didn't mind spending 50usd on the account bound flying dragons, and other account bound mounts before those. to me I felt it was worth the money. but they got greedy and stopped doing account bound mounts and started making character bound for the cost of an account bound. then they added a dyeable princess costume , emote, and dance on a daily deal. for all 3 items, is like 70 usd for 1 character. my dresses don't even cost that much lol. I could get behind paying that much if it was account bound then it wouldn't be so bad. copy and paste...that's it. they aren't sewing every dress, creating a new mount or skin every purchase...so why do they cost so much now? maybe they are buying the finest silk in china, having it brought in by carrier pigeons one strand at a time, hand woven by the best tailors and seamstresses in America, and delivered to your door on hands and knees by brad pitt ( which I would totally buy then lol ).
so yeah....power to the people, and don't give up you power.
and like someone said above, they did kinda have a 150 loot box with an exclusive mount, but it was a Christmas type deal where you had to spend like 250 or 350 in emp to get the jet cycle. I wanted to throw up right then.

what people need to keep in mind is that we never really own any of these things we buy from the store in tera. we are only renting them. at anytime, the game can shut down and we are left with nothing. I would like to see it where games like tera and so on make it where you can buy a copy of the game like a console game, and then if the game ever shuts down, you can still play it. yeah you may have to play solo or create your own server or whatever to play with others, but you could continue to play and all the items that you bought can still be used, and maybe they can sell all their store items as account bound from a site for a limited time so that you can have it for your game.
farming is when you keep killing the same enemies over and over again for the stuff they drop or exp points.
yeah like wellbia is going to respond back to us or listen
could there possibly be a way for eme to file a complaint with the fcc against these websites that the gold scammers are using and have them shut down? would that put a huge decrease in the scammers or are they using different websites? I guess even if they used different websites, maybe eme could file a complaint against all of them and possibly have them shut down due to them breaking the law. @KitTeaCup , @Denommenator , @seandynamite , @SingleBear , @CobaltDragon
i noticed that there was no mention of account bound mounts from staff for daily deals.
the better question should be from eme is what items would you like to see in the daily deals from this list of items that we are willing to do.
I have been asking for them to sell a permanent fiery halo for years now and no luck so far.

castanica demons please

I totally agree
But here, in Tera forum? What do u mean that u can bypass xigncode and still use exploit cheat engine and whatnot? What the F that supposed to mean??
I would think what they are trying to say is xigncode isn't doing crap to stop cheating and 3rd party software in the game. they are also saying that they have to use 3rd party software to bypass xigncode and xigncode isn't picking that up either.
you guys shouldn't brag about how easy it is to farm fashion coupons in the game. you might give them the idea to nerf or completely remove it so that you have to buy those fashion coupons in the daily deals.
account bound flying mounts instead of spending 50 usd for a character bound mount
Keeping or removing this ineffective software is the least of the problems.... but xigncode isn't helping by bringing in more people. I have never heard anyone say " X game uses xigncode...I must play it ".
people may leave, but all eme has to do is have a sale, double drop , introduce new costumes , mounts, and the summer event, and people will flock back swiping that credit card so fast, that they will be going back in time. people that has all sorts of costumes, and stuff, will not let something new in the shop slip through their hands. people tried to petition last year and was talking a big game, but that only lasted until the update for the new class and all, and they only stayed away for like a day or 2. if people can play tera without any problems, they wont quit due to xigncode, they will keep playing, keep spending and maybe come on forums complaining and making empty threats.
im still waiting to see what eme has to say before I update. I might take a chance on it, but idk.
I don't think its the fact that eme implemented xigncode into the game as much as people feel like if it wasn't for the person making a post about it 2 days before it and eme finally coming in with a closed post talking about it but with not a lot of info on it, makes people feel like if the person didn't male the post, would eme have made a post about it here. it seemed shady and people don't like shady. also add in when we want to find out anything about tera, we have to look at other sites instead of the official tera site. I still don't know why we don't get first info instead of twitter, discord and where ever else they post. im not playing easter egg hunt to try and find out what eme is going to do or not do.

I recommend making a point to not spend money on it until you are sure that xigncode isn't going to ruin the game experience for you. I spent some money to get some stuff from the cash shop previously. I can't even get the client to run now. :'(

thsts why I told him to wait and spend it on a character he likes. I don't know how this xigncode is going to work on my pc. I haven't played or installed the new update yet. if I don't see something positive from eme about all this or reassuring, then I wont install it and I guess I will stop playing until they do. either way, it wont bother me.
I have been playing solo for the past 4 years now, and I have loads of fun. it all depends on what you think is fun. there are things you can do that doesn't involve playing with others and theres less drama that way.
1. you can explore the world, try to get to unreachable areas and areas off the beaten path. there are some beautiful places out there.
2. play as a character you don't mind looking at all the time.
3. create alts so that you can try out different races and classes, and to also farm for materials.
4. if you can afford to, buy a flying mount from the store if you can find anymore account bound ones and costumes once you find the character and class you like.
5. you have different ways to get to level 65. grinding bams that are around your same level, running dungeons with other players, doing battle grounds, and running quests. if you want to enjoy tera for what it has to offer, I suggest doing quests. if you want to play with others, run dungeons, if you want to hurry to end cap and solo, grind bams.
6. celestial hills server is a role play server but less populated if you want to get in character and have a different experience. there are guilds that roleplay , and there are areas that roleplay goes on at.
7. once you hit level 65 there are solo vanguard quests that you can do , but they will get a little tedious and boring after awhile. so all of that will determine what your goals in the game will be, if you want gold, best gear, and so on. this is also where your alts come in to play at for gold and gear grinding.
8. don't worry about or listen to toxic players in game and in forums. it is a free to play game, and it isn't pay to win. you play, and make your own decisions. also try all the servers to see which one you like the best. I like the less populated servers for solo content and roleplaying.
9. if you want to make friends, its not hard, but many stay and many leave. try not to get too attached to anyone and you will be ok. if you have friends in real life, invite them over to your house so they can see how the game is, and maybe they will join and play with you.
10. last but not least, have a positive attitude and have fun. after all its just a game and that's what games are made for.
if people want to go to a different server so bad, then pay the transfer fees and support the game.

So you've updated the game and have been playing it. How is it running?

Are the bots gone? Are your FPS normal or better?

Has anyone asked how the game is running for people in global?

bots are still there
fps is normal for me but I didn't allow xigncode to install at all
game is deader than ever due to people not playing because either A ) they let xigncode install and [filtered] their computer up that could barely run tera in the first place or B ) too lazy to learn how to stop it from installing all together

Well, whatever you did, they'll probably get you eventually.

Hence why I don't think the bypasses will work indefinitely either. One day, they'll change something around, and suddenly, the bypasses will be outdated. Unless they are really lazy. It will just be a constant fight going forward.

unless they are really lazy... looking back at the track record and how they removed the gold , and drops, and nerfed the gold from level 60 dailies due to bots, instead of stopping the bots to begin with, and how the cheaters with injectors and other hacks were and still are being used for so long, even around the old cm on a live stream, and nothing was really done about it, and now they finally implement some questionable software in the game to supposedly stop them. it seems like whenever people abuse the system , its the ones that are playing by the rules are the ones that suffer and the rule breakers still keep on keeping on. that's in the game and in real life. so I don't think its being lazy , I think people either do nothing or go to the extreme, and somewhere in between talk about it.

The big question is if the classic server would be xigncode-free. lol

i think xigncode would be in it if they came out with the classic server. I don't think xigncode is going anywhere I think its here to stay. the only thing I would like to see in a classic server that we have now would be the flying mounts and only having to kill 1 world boss each for the fairy pet.
also if they brought back the classic server, I would want them to bring back the old amount of gold earned from doing the level 60 dailies.
LegateTR wrote: »
I'd immediately move to and stay on that server.

same here. at least then you didn't out level the quests. plus you also got to see more of the world.
just keep solo rewards the same and increase the rewards for dungeons since its normally harder content than the solo content. its a win win situation.

I'm wondering why we haven't heard from EME about this rootkit debacle since the xigncode fallout started. I've seen pretty dire reports of IMS queues that used to be very speedy being dead and velika being close to a ghost town.

they don't have to respond to us. its their game their rules. that has been showed to us time and time again, and no matter how much we complain, they don't have to do anything. its sad to say it that way but its true.
but....in defense of eme they probably had to implement some sort of program for anti cheating to show whoever they are trying to appease that they have something in place and are trying.
but..the way they came out with a post about it at the last minute, looked kinda bad for them to others. it makes people wonder that if it wasn't leaked if eme would have told us ahead of time about it or would they have let it go through on the down low. we will never really know for sure.

This is an old list of software or add-ons that may cause that error.

Avast Anti-Virus, BitDefender, AVG, or Avira
LogiTech Gaming Software - these are expressively inclusive to those that have macro's/auto click/multi-key settings/auto hot key, etc.
MSI Afterburner
Setpoint mouse software
Daemon Tools (any virtual drive, really)
NVIDIA Interfaces
Browser Extensions and Toolbars (Plug-Ins) - Any of them. If you're going to run the game, you may have to manually disable any extensions and toolbars on all of your browsers, if you are using them, though it wouldn't hurt to try disabling them when you're not using them. Google Hangouts sometimes causes the error.
Team Viewer
Most Macro, Auto Hot Key, and Auto Click programs.
EVGA Precision
Sandbox
Net Limiter
Rivatuner
Any malware/trojans on your computer (even if you don't know that they're there) can cause it.
Dxtory
Any Program that causes an overlay (ex. Curse/Mumble)
DropBox
Google Drive
Some VPN's
Sometimes Skype
Microsoft Security Essentials
Steelseries Engine 3 (mouse software)
Wacom Tablet Helpers

The list is even larger but it would be good if you can think about what kind of software you have installed on your system.

it might be easier just to list what doesnt cause the error lol
I don't use talents or anything like that. I farm the low level bams on iod in the gear I got from highwatch on my main and alts. then I sell what I have in the broker way less than the lowest price just to make quick gold. sometimes I sell to kami or others like him whenever I can, and I get a fair price from them, more than what I list it for in broker. if the economy wasn't so screwed up to begin with and wasn't so expensive, we wouldn't have to grind all day for gold just to buy something from the broker. im using gear that I had for more than 6 months now before they removed the enchanting mats, so im not gearing up anything. it takes me longer to do the bams, but I don't mind. I don't need the latest and greatest gear.
thank goodness we got that xigncode to stop these scammers and cheaters in the game. it really is saving tera now....all hail the xigncode.

Because, people shouldn't be able to solo grind on alts all day and make more money than doing dungeons. As it is, soloing trash tier bams all day + PoP + Ghillie + Guardians, you make way more money without the need of rng(drops, then rolling vs 4 other people)....... which also slows down queues and LFGs because a lot of people would rather do that then play the actual game.

I'd argue that playing solo content is playing the actual game, though. There are different things that can be done in game. Picking and choosing what counts as really playing the game is silly. Heck, for some players merely running around and enjoying the graphics may be playing the game.

Those kinds of people, the ones that just 'enjoy graphics and walk around' or only stick to solo content and nothing else don't really help the population of people who do do dungeons and bgs and pvp though? So what difference does it make if they are around or not.. lol

People tend to play the game for enjoyment, not to entertain others, though. People who do solo content primarily and don't care about gear progression could potentially help lower the cost of gold and silver talents on broker. Last I checked, those were fairly pricey. Haven't played since the xigncode debacle, though.

also solo players like me spend money in the shop, and also buy costumes, mounts, and other trinkets that the hardcore people put in broker. so yes we matter. if you make it where you cant run these solo things to earn gold in game, then no one will buy the stuff in the broker. you can alos thank the elitist players for kicking everyone that isn't wearing the same costume, or not knowing the secret password to get in, or whatever crazy reason they deem. toxic players don't help any either. there aren't any rules about how to play tera besides the tos, so let us solo players do us, and you do you. that's one of the main problems in tera is people trying to dictate how people should play a game.
too bad we cant transfer our stuff over to consoles

how did you stop it from installing with the patch?
I wish they would have classic servers. I don't care for the gear enchantment at all. I want cs level 30 again, alliance, original island of dawn, campfires and mob/bam drops like it was before the fate of arune patch. as much as I love my flying mounts, I could live without them if they took down the invisible barriers and let us be able to explore again.

also have guild and guild banks like it used to be instead of having to level up the guild to have bank slots.

after reading a post earlier this week about the xigncode maybe being in the new patch and what others said about it, and then reading from eme staff that they were putting it in, I didn't update or log into the game yet. im worried that it might make my laptop mess up. I don't have the skills to remove it or anything, also I wouldn't want to go through all the trouble of having to do so. I guess I will just wait for eme to do something about this xigncode thing and I will go without playing tera until they get the bugs worked out.

So happy i havent updated the house main computer. Tested the update on a laptop that worked fine before, but its unplayable now, cant even hunt bams without lagging. Ill keep coming once a week to the forums, and see if they hire people with brains, or they just wanna kill the game, once and for all.

it would be bad if they wanted to kill off tera. they have lost so many staff members in the past few years. it makes you wonder whats really going on. I hope tera is making eme/bhs enough money to stay profitable and alive for the future. I hope all the bad decisions aren't a ploy to make player quit due to tera not making enough money like they had hoped. that would be bad. maybe we are worried over nothing and maybe everything will get worked out soon, so im hoping. I would hate to see tera na close down. I know there have been some bad decisions made for the game and from reading in the forums, this new patch so far is not going over too well with many of the players, but I still like tera and have hopes for it. so please eme/bhs, don't let tera die.

Please pardon the confusion, but up where?

Posted on Facebook?
Posted somewhere else?

ikr. I get tired of hearing that something tera related is being mentioned in other social media sites but never posted in the forums anymore. just like if you want to find out how to play a class or how to do something within the game, and you have to go to a different site. why dont eme post in the actual site 1st before posting in other sites .
I feel like tera is becoming like " choo choo" , " crash !!!! ".
I think I will wait until eme gets this crapstorm straightened out before I update. I can go without playing instead of risking infecting my pc.
im waiting to see what eme is going to do before I try to log in. I hear mixed things about this xigncode patch and im not going to dl it until we see whats what. so I wont be playing until then.
xigncode3 is evil. it killed my dog and ate my lunch....wait, that was little brother. nevermind. lol jk.
sad thing is, you are breaking the tos and could get banned from forums for callouts. eme will tell you to send in a support ticket or send them a screenshot with name and server. I like the idea of having scammers posted for everyone to see. hopefully it will deter them
too bad we cant get our characters and stuff transferred to consoles from pc. then we wouldn't have to worry about the xhunter1 or hackers. if this was the twilight zone, I would think that this all was done so that they could get out of the pc market and just have it on consoles, but then that would be ridiculous because they would lose money.
I have said it before and I will say it again...no one should dictate how others play tera. you shouldn't have to level up to a certain level to keep your name just because some crybabies want your name. I do like the idea of doing name wipes for inactive accounts that have been inactive for over 2 years, but only after an email was sent and an announcement that there will be a name wipe for inactive accounts.
doing a name wipe on people that are active on other servers or on the same server but inactive on characters is wrong and I doubt eme would do anything about that.
telling players that they have to level up their level 1 characters so they wont have a their name taken due to inactivity, should fall under the same category as doing a name wipe for people that afks most of the time. its the same thing. you are punishing players for having a different playstyle than what is considered the norm, and if you don't do the same as the other players , then you get punished. if that is the case, then where would it end? if you don't buy a certain amount of emp every month, then you get a warning, the 2nd time your characters get deleted.
as long as people aren't breaking the tos or others rules set by eme/bhs, then no matter if they are level 1 or level 65, they shouldn't be punished for playing the game their way.
there are many people that afk as level 1 and level 65 all day everyday. many people quit playing the gear grind and just use tera as a different form of social media. so if a level 65 does nothing but afk in velika or highwatch or hangs out in the tavern and rp, and never runs any content at all, its no different than a level 1 doing the same thing on babysitting island. I know of people that are level 1 that hangs out in babysitting island just to hang out and talk at the starting area. I have also hung around there talking to others as well.
I understand people want other people's name but just because you want something doesn't mean that its right to take it from other people. there are also inactive players that are deployed in the military that doesn't have the luxury of having the internet that plays tera. I know some in that situation also and they have spend hundreds of dollars in the store and have been playing since beta. so do they deserve to lose their names?
the argument about name hoarders/sellers wont work because the ones that are doing that logs back in and doesn't lose their names when a name wipe is announced. the argument that you should lose your name if you aren't level 40 or above is b.s. also because it goes back to trying to dictate how people should be playing tera. many of those inactive players still hang out in forums watching whats going on, some are waiting for the game to get better or new content that they want to play. and when eme announces a name wipe, then they log in and play just enough to not lose it. people also have lives outside of tera and life happens. they don't always have the luxury of playing sometimes for months.
eme staff has already talked about these same things last year and basically said there would be no clear winners from name wipes.
there are a few names I would like to have but are on inactive players, but I don't want them to lose it just because I want it. I just use my imagination and come up with new and better names. leave other players alone and don't worry about what they do or don't do. you do you and let them do them and the game will be much better for it.
why should you be able to dictate how long we should play a character for? many of us have level 1 characters so we can have our name for when a new class comes out or when we want to try a different one or race.

I understand that you like one specific name and want to use it later, but a game is a game because you play it, not because of what your character is named. So imo it's better to play with the characters and not just leave them alone to hold the name until you want to make another character and use it again. To me, names don't matter, I like the characters themeselves, not the names, so I don't completly undestand why people like to own names in a game. But it's just my opinion. Eme will decide if there is a need for a name wipe or not, so nothing we can do about that.

we shouldn't have to be expected to play tera the same way everyone else does. for example, I play solo. if I run a dungeon, I run it solo. I paid for my character slots from the tera store so I can do whatever I want with those characters and name them what I want if the name is available. i don't tell others how to play tera, so we shouldn't have to be told how others want us to play. we aren't breaking any rules.
name wipes wouldn't fix anything to stop name hoarders, because once they find out that eme is going to do a name wipe, they will log back in and just be active enough or level to 65 just so they can keep the names.
telling us that level 1 players should have their names deleted because they don't do enough on that character ( even if the person plays on a different one ), is like saying a level 65 that is just afking in velika should lose their names cause they aren't running content. what would you do about those players that are level 65 and only afk in velika or highwatch?

and don't forget the " if I don't get my way, im going to quit " posts. lol.
what people don't realize about merging dead servers into 1, is that you have 1 massive dead server instead. also when new content, class, and so on is introduced, the servers get populated again for a brief time. one reason the servers are considered dead, is because when someone asks which server is the cool kids club, then people go to those servers.
then you have the biggest crap storm of all when merging servers...the names. in a close 2nd is character limit on servers and if you have max characters on all the servers then they merge to 1, then you have a lot of deleting to do and throwing away costumes and mounts. there are already ideas on how to improve dead servers if people would take time and read them. we have to explain it every month in these posts. I will give one example of fixing dead servers...stop letting people go to mt or tr until all the others are filled up again. also if you want to go to the cool kids club server, then support tera and pay for a transfer instead of expecting eme to give you what you want when you want it for free just because you changed your minds on where you want to play. or start new characters in the server you want to play in and put in the time and effort for free.
people are willing to pay 40-50 dollars for a character bound mount or costume, but wont pay the 25 for a server transfer.
well we got our monthly server merge thread. go back and read last months threads and the ones from last year where eme staff gave a statement about server merges.
why should you be able to dictate how long we should play a character for? many of us have level 1 characters so we can have our name for when a new class comes out or when we want to try a different one or race.

[PC] The issue has been resolved and we are seeing players logging back in to FF, MT, and CH. Thank you for your patience!

again, why couldn't they come on eme official website to let us know instead of us having to rely on other sites to find out about a game when they don't post in the games site or forums.

Everyone who says NO NO NO are just name hoarders who want to make gold off their stolen names

i say no no no and im not a name hoarder, nor am i trying to sell my names i do have. ad yes i have the same names on every server, and no they aren't any anime names, or 3 or 4 letter names, i actually used my imagination and came up with these names. i plan on keeping my names i do have. if they took away all my names and told me i had to come up with new names for all of my characters, i could come up with new names, ones that aren't taken within 3 attempts, even if they did that to me monthly. people have gotten where they don't have any creativity anymore and have to rely on cartoons, movies, tv and so on for their names or ideas. if people actually tried to come up with something original, they would be able to come up with a name within 3-5 tries. common sense should tell people that in a 6 year old game, that common 3-4 letter words, and any anime name will have already been taken by now.
the whole argument that all those that are saying no is a lame excuse to try and convince others and eme that we are doing things that are against the tos, and to try and force them to do a name wipe. last time that happened, people just logged back in, and most got to keep their names. then people were crying in forums within 2 months wanting another name wipe again cause they didn't get the name they wanted and used the name hoarder/seller excuse. people also cried about having to work and couldn't log in quick enough to get a cool weeb name.
if you people don't want to come up with a new creative name for yourselves, then try to get those that do have it to trade you or whatever for it. if that doesn't work, then accept it and move on. but trying to bully or force eme to do a name wipe by posting countless threads about it and threatening to leave the game if you don't get your way is pathetic and childish.
I don't know why we have to look at social media sites just to find out stuff about tera from the staff when they could use their own site for that.

im in a agree with this post there is a dude that got a name i want, its a level 1 gunner and it havent play since the last name wipe so thats like 4 years ago maybe. there should be a character delete timer if the person doesnt reach an specific level, like "your character getting deleted if not reaching 65 in 1 year" or so

what.

i've been playing somewhat actively for the past 5 years but 95% of all my characters are level 1. Why should they get deleted???

because the entitled want their way. I may sound rude and all in this thread, but its because we have at least 1 post per month about a name wipe, and I get tired of watching adults cry like little children because they want a name that someone else has and they feel like since the person that has it doesn't deserve it just because they are holding it for when they do want to use it and that if they cant have it then the one that does have it shouldn't. no one will think you are clever because you have a name or that youre so cool and awesome. people crying and throwing tantrums every month is not going to get eme to do a name wipe. want proof?? when was the last name wipe thread that you have seen where eme staff has come on commenting about it? in the really real world, you don't always get what you want. should someone move out of their home and let you have it just because you want it, even if they haven't lived in it for a year or more? same principle. if you want to be clever, show some creativity and come up with your own name. if you people go back and read the other 1000 threads about name wipes, then you will see why it isn't a good idea and wont work to your liking. also in one that was made last year, you will see what an eme staff member said about name wipes.

There's absolutely no way they can just not install the patch tomorrow. Plus, they don't care who stays or leaves. They get a paycheck no matter what. We always act as though the employees really care about how much money EME makes. I doubt they do. I never cared about how much money any of the companies I worked at made. I was fine as long as I got my paycheck.

Plus, there is really nothing they can say to make this any better. Just get your accounts/alts ready for retirement and play something else. Maybe after a few weeks of fussing, BHS will let them get rid of it. I know people have put years into this, but seriously, there's plenty of other entertainment out there.

very true.
its their game, their rules. they can do whatever they want and if we want to continue to play, then we have to accept it or quit. those are our only 2 choices. I hate that it is that way, but its true.
I don't need to know them, im just going to explain the situation to them about the name, and that someone wants a name wipe just so they can have the name, and have them to log in and level up some so that no one else can have it.
you wont have to worry about it. im going to get up with the person and tell them to level up to 40 so that they wont lose their name

If they release any notes for it I will call out of work and stay up 24 hrs just to get Code. So wishing you good luck to that.

you better be very fast and on your "A" game then, cause I will get it just to spite you

I did pick a name its I.Code.I but I just want Code which is why Im posting this thread cause the person who has the name probably doesnt even play tera anymore and stays at Lvl 1

lets do a name wipe because I want a certain name that someone else has and I feel entitled to it. if they do a name wipe, I will snag this name just for the fun of it. I will give you credit though, at least you were honest about why you wanted a name wipe unlike many others that cry about a name wipe....but im still taking it if they do.
And you play the game why? Just to be rude and give attitude I guess. Y'all are the ones whining and crying when you can't fill dungeons and begging to merge servers, because no one is on. Yet you laugh when people say they are leaving. Whatever!
I don't need others to run dungeons with. I play solo. if eme/bhs made it to where this was a stand alone game tomorrow without any interaction with other players, I would have even more fun with tera. I never asked for server merges either. I am always speaking against them. I play the game my way and have fun. that's why I play. I am never rude to others. I will give my opinion on things, just like you did just now. I laugh at times when people say they are going to quit cause its funny. they remind me of my little brother when he doesn't get his way. when you distract him with something else, he is fine, just like the majority of the players here. so yes, I have been laughing at the players, eme staff, and bhs for years now, and I will continue to do so when they make stupid decisions.
you think saying bye will scare EME into changing their minds lol time to pop some corn and take in this movie i'm seeing. its a block buster.
ikr. its sad to say, but the forums are more fun and entertaining than the game itself lol
im curious to know this as well. hopefully we can get some answers
if people leave, all they have to do is bring back everything back to the tera store, have a sale, come out with a cute new elin costume, give double or triple drop weekend maybe add in turbo time, and people will forget all about it and come back on to play....just like they always do.
im just curious to know if the op hadn't made this post last night, if eme would have mentioned anything about xigncode at all. its hard to say since the op started this post way before time and then eme gives us a closed post but no reason behind why they are doing this. it does look fishy.
I haven't spent any money in tera since they quit making account bound mounts. they removed original island of dawn, alliance, cs level 65 only, removed campfires and everything else, fate of arune patch stopped giving us drops from mobs and such, no more twitch codes , put barriers up so that you cant explore areas anymore, got stuck with babysitting island as the starting area, and other things.
I have spent hundreds in tera and I know im nowhere near whale status, but I have been letting my purse do the talking. I really like the flying costume, but its not worth 40 dollars just for 1 character. I don't hate tera, but I will treat it as a free to play game until things change. when im happy, my purse is happy.
with all the changes and people not happy with the new changes, and also with players leaving tera, it seems like they wouldn't want to ban people unless its like a major thing to get banned for instead of logging in more than once within 30 mins.

I thought the "which server is best" thread was scheduled as a weekly thing. it normally is, but this is the 1st one of june. also we should be expecting our monthly " we need a name wipe " thread really soon. and don't forget our " why gender locked class" or " we need male class ". we haven't had an elin bashing thread in a long time, but I expect one as soon as the swimsuits go on sale.
this is our monthly " which server is the best " post.
I would like to see older content that was removed brought back for good...like original island of dawn and alliance territories.
its like when eric cartman bought the amusement park and wouldn't allow anyone in. no one wanted to come to it before, only when cartman didn't want anyone coming in was when everyone wanted to come in. I feel eme is using the same marketing ploy. nobody hardly bought stuff in the store, and now that its all been removed and you will only get a temporary taste of things is when people are now wanting to buy stuff. I feel it could work both ways and eme can make bank, or it could come back and bite them in their butts. only time will tell.
what are these wings you are talking about? do they make you fly in game?
I would like to see mini versions of the bams as pets.
I would love to be able to visit those places again. I miss hanging around baldera with my friends. it was so cool how it turned to black and white. highwatch reminds me of a large baldera. I wonder if that's where they got the design from when they made highwatch. I didn't know about the ghost town behind bastion. was it in black and white? I would love to see pics of that place
been singing that song ever since they brought out flying mounts. we were hoping to be able to explore even more, but it cut out a lot of areas to explore when they did it even places we were able to get to before.
i drive my police car everywhere, and then I fly on my dragon. lore wise, it doesn't make sense...but its still fun to do.
endgame is buying outfits and mounts, and then showing them off in velika and highwatch lol. just kidding but its true also. as christin said above, you do whatever you want. I play tera like they posted above. I run what I want, and do other things in the game. if you want all the flavor of the month gear and stuff, then you will have to run and grind the same things over and over and over again, and then run them on your alts.
do we have unlimited block or is there a set number on how many we can block? if its unlimited, then blocking them will be ok. if there isn't then I guess eme/bhs needs to put that in place. I hate that you cant read others comment without having to scroll through walls of spam.
if you are still having trouble beating him, level up to like 12 and then go to him.

hopefully it isn't Chinese, cause I haven't done anything to anyone.
I saw that one of the founders pack for console includes a perm firey halo in it. does that mean we will be getting perm versions as well for pc players?
if you read it, you will know that it is an april fools joke. I glanced at it until I saw the housing thing for players and guilds, I read some of it and knew from that , that it was a joke. I didn't even read anymore of it after that. it would be nice if bhs/eme would do some of these ideas, and not just say we will look into it and nothing goes further than that.
early red quests. other than that, it takes a little while. I imagine you are trying to get the black panther mount. if so, I would get the hardest ones out of the way first, like the one in zulafan fortress and pathfinders post. do these 2 every day for sure, then if you have any left over that you can do, work on the ones in bastion area. then once you finish your 10 for the day, then go to kanstria and kill the enemies there until you get bored out of your skull. then which ever you finish first between the first 3, work on the velika ones. to me velika doesn't take as long. if you have elite, then you can do 20 dailies a day, and if you have a double rep boost, that helps even more. it shouldn't take more than a couple of weeks to get your mount. it just takes time.
as I said in my post, I want the old content back, but with the new stuff in it, classes, costumes, mounts, and so on. and to those that are opposed to a legacy server, like someone else said, don't play on that server. If they don't do a legacy server, I would like them to slow down leveling like it used to be, give us alliance and iod back, and mob and bam drops like before the fate of arune patch. also as someone else said, have a separate way to level fast. also bring back level 30 cs. if no legacy server, instead make a server with no rules, a server where everyone is outlaw pvp ganking, and so on.
nostalgia sells just as good as new stuff. look at movies, books, music. look at the nes and snes that Nintendo came back out with, that basically sold out before it even hit the shelves. classic radio stations, classic clothes, or retro. nostalgia makes people think of different times, and sometimes better times in their lives, and they want to relive some of those memories or feelings. I may not be as old as many of you, but there are times when I hear a song or watch a movie before the incident that nearly killed me and back when I was cheerleading and able to walk. if console players had access to a legacy server, I feel like they would play it and then maybe move to the newer tera, but they would still play on the legacy server.
but I guess we will never know for sure what a legacy server will or will not do, seeing how bhs wont approve anything like this unless its a last ditch effort (and low cost) to save tera.
i would be all for a legacy server , but I wouldn't pay a subscription for it. I haven't seen any game worth paying to play it monthly. I also think the cash shop should be in it, and keep the current classes with their skills now, but not have the new classes in it. bring back iod as the starting area, bring back level 60 dailies and the gold they used to give, bring back alliance and guild banks, the way it used to be. bring back campfires,charms, and consumables. keep relic weapons, bring back mob and bam drops pre fate of arune patch, let the bams drop fashion coupons like they used to for any level difference, keep fashion coupon shop, bring back elin teleporters, bring back pvp like it used to be so people can get their kicks by ganking lowbies, but on a separate legacy server, remove the invisible walls , ceilings, and barriers so that we can go back to velika wilds and baldera. keep the flying mounts, keep the world boss achievement like it is now where you need to kill only 1 of each. let cs be level 30 again. if eme could do that for us with 2 legacy servers 1 pve, 1 old style pvp, I feel like it would be the most populated server or servers, more than the others combined. I would gladly start all over again and live on those servers. I feel like rp would go to the legacy server as well. and if they brought back nexus to them, kg, and the others, I know it would be more populated and once word got out, people would return.

can we remove them from game completely please?
sure, lets remove cs, and all the other bgs as well. also, lets make everyone level 65 to start with, and remove all of the maps except for velika and highwatch. maybe if we are lucky, we can keep iod also. then any content you want to run, you wait in line for it and have it like vanguard requests.
when you start a new character, you start in velika, and then teleport to highwatch and/or iod. no pegausas, no areas outside of the 2 cities. also no pvp at all unless you agree to it in one of the 2 places. they should remove trade broker and the cash shop. they should also remove all costumes and mounts from the game. they should make all gear the same. the same stats, crystals, innerwear, and so on. there should also only be 1 race with male and female, and only 1 class. there should also be a time limit for how long you can actually play like we can only play for 15 mins per day, per account. you can only make 1 character per account, and only have 1 account per player and/or household.
would you be happy then??

And it frustrated you so much it caused you to uninstall the game?

And you wanted a PURE pvp server?

Bwaahahahahahaha
:lol::lol::lol:

he already uninstall tera, he just want to know if it worth to install again tera

if he already uninstalled tera once cause he didn't get his way or liked the changes made, then he should not install it again. also I find it funny how so many people uninstalled tera but still lurk in forums just to let people know that they quit and keep reminding them all the time . if you hate tera that much to quit and uninstall it, then quit and keep quiet. this isn't facebook where if you quit people may care.

I played the beta and purchased a founders edition box before launch. I played for a long time and loved the combat. However after a few years I ventured to other MMOs. Recently I logged on and noticed the the campfire charms and craftable buffs were gone. And while that bummed me, I accepted it. What REALLY irritated me was removing Outlaw from lvl 11 on up. Did people cry that much over griefing? Because if you're on a PvP server, that's part of the risks. You accept and expect it to happen. You can't act like you're PvP, roll a PvP server, then whine because you got 1-shot by someone 40 levels higher than you. I've actually been attacked by 3 characters at my level and killed all of them. Moments like that is what made me love the game. Fighting the odds or being crafty. And hell. We have CHANNELS!!! Does Bluehole ever plan on changing this or maybe making a PURE PvP server? Because right now coming back doesn't seem worth it if they're trying to cater to the casuals.

I would say that you are at least 2 years too late in these arguments. we have a post about once every few months addressing these things, but its a waste of time typing it cause they wont change it back. good luck though
ARE YOU CRAZY? "KINDA COOL" THEY ARE GLORIOUS!!

AND THEY ARE GETTING IN GAME METHODS
Just in fairness, this style of event is basically "in-game" in name only. With the amount of tiers of RNG you need to win it in-game, it's essentially impossible unless you buy more from the cash shop. EU's done this style of event a lot of times before.

In any case, it is cool that they have these mounts available; I'm sure we'll get them at some point. (Personally, I'm not that big of a fan, but happy for people who like them. Also not thrilled they've added yet another set of buffs tied to a mount.)
I will start buying mounts again when they make account bound ones available again, or they lower the price on these character only mounts. 30-50 dollars per mount per character adds up pretty fast. at least with account bound it felt like it was worth the money even if you don't get the buffs and everything else that goes with the premium ones.

so in army they cant back to home to see their family while their pass ?

I don't think tera is one of the things that people are thinking about when they come home for r and r. if so, then I really feel sorry for them.
we weren't happy with others talking about taking people's names that aren't 65. I do agree about the 2 years or longer inactive, but that is still a gray area due to military people deployed in areas that don't have internet.
i choose not to level some of my characters to level 65 mainly because when a new class comes out I don't want to wait 24 hours for deletion. so that means I should lose my name just because you guys weren't fast enough or new to the game to get your own. 1st come , 1st served.
the one that you originally had to have 100 kills for each one.
I was actually referring to the world boss achievement world bosses.
there are trolls that camp the spawn spots and kill the world boss right after maintenance just to grief players. then the wb doesn't spawn again until next maintenance, and they do it all over again. I feel like all world bosses should spawn so many times per day. yeah it might not mean as much as it used to be, but so much has already been removed from the game, theat they may as well let us be able to get these. I know they dropped it from 100 kills to only 1 kill each, but some of those once a week spawns are nearly impossible to get.
we go over these same arguments every month. 1. get creative with your naming of your character. 2. why should eme cater to those that want a name wipe. 3. what about those that are deployed and doesn't really have the ability to get online to check to see if eme is going to do another name wipe or not. bdo, ro, lol, ff, and so on aren't going to do random name wipes so that new players can get their name they want. last time they had a name wipe, the players either came back long enough not to lose their names, or the name sellers/hoarders got to them first and snagged all the desired names. so if that happens again, do you keep pestering eme to keep doing name wipes until you finally get the name you wanted? I have the same name on every server, not for sale, but for when I want to or if I decide to play on those servers. don't worry I don't have the cute little anime names, so I doubt anyone will want them. if for some reason I did lose my names, its not the end of the world, I will just use my imagination, and come up with new ones. no matter how creative or clever you think you may be when coming up with a name , someone else probably has already thought of it.
mt and tr has the most population, then av and ch, then ff. all servers have its good and bad points. you can create at least 2 free characters on each server and try it out for yourself to see which or if not all the servers you like. we can only give you our opinions. eme is the only one that can give you facts and percentages
