The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...


[UPDATE] TERA Merges Servers Signifying Regression

Posted on Wednesday, September 5 @ 12:50:24 PST by Jonathan_Leack

[UPDATE] The European servers have been unaffected and will not be merged.

Innovation only goes so far, and TERA's recent struggles are exemplary of that.

In response to metrics showing difficulty in players forming groups, Bluehole Studio has decided to merge servers. The merge will take place on September 18th and is expected to increase population count.

However, not all is negative. Some statistics were posted which show that the game has already lived a decent life. See below:
  • You’ve created more than 2.5 million characters since OBT.
  • Most popular class: warrior (18.1 percent of total characters created)
  • Next closest: sorcerer (14.9 percent)
  • Most popular race: castanic (22.7 percent)
  • Next closest: human (22.5 percent)
  • You’ve formed more than 14,000 guilds.
  • The Island of Dawn has claimed 363,111 player deaths. (Rest in peace, newbies.)
  • A kumas demon has claimed the top player-killing title, slaughtering more than a quarter-million souls and only dying 63,141 times. What a jerk.
Once an MMO has gone into regression, it's rare to see significant growth afterward. Expansion packs can help but only go so far. Given the game's young age, it's safe to say that TERA hasn't made the impression on the industry that many people were hoping.
