    I can't believe there's no language filter for names and guilds like there is for regular chat. Kind of an oversight.

    I later jumped off of it, sadly my pictures in the water came out... uhh... ever seen an entire wall of TVs? Kinda like that.

    Fighting a ridiculously powerful giant that attacked a charr town in the 15-25 area, it basically will one shot you whether you're melee or not since it does a shockwave attack that comes after you if you don't dodge.

    One of the only screens I took this weekend. I think the female charr look way cooler than the male charr. Also, warriors are a ton of fun.

    I wish male charr looked a bit more feline, like the female charr, but I suppose that is what makes them distinct.

    Here's some more GW2 screenshots of mine:

    Also I apologize to everyone for earlier as my early screenshots seem to have shadows disabled. Ye sI know they are still stunning without shadows, but all my future screenshots will have full glorious shadows enabled. I think my little album one might have had them on.

    I look at all these pictures of Tera and GW2 and think I wouldn't mind trying....but I'm committed to enough things already.

    Plus I can't help shake the belief that Tera no matter how good looking it is will fall into the Aeon like state of being.

    Aion was released as is, Tera has a Western company localizing it (i.e. removing stuff we hate over here like random chance crafting and grinding forever just to level).

    Even so, Aion was pretty cool. The game world was amazing, as was the music. Better than GW 2 or Tera, as far as I've gotten in either. Really good graphics for the time, too. I just couldn't keep grinding after a point.

    Here is how it went.

    Tera released in Korea. Bluehole studios, from the START, wanted to make this MMO as western as possible. So a lot of focus on the quest, smooth exp leveling curve, the whole nine yards.

    Within the first 3 or 4 days of official release in Korea, a good chunk of the population was 58, and they complained about the massive lack of grind, so they ADDED SOME.

    The consumables? Campfire's? Enchanting bullshit? All added because of Korean feedback during their beta's.

    They basically created Enmasse to basically reverse engineer ALL THAT OUT OF THE GAME.

    And they did, for the most part.

    Well, its culture.

    I spoke with executive producer Jeff Hickman from the Warhammer Online team and he was saying that the Russian players wanted permanent keeps, meaning you would do a keep raid in epic RvR, destroy your enemy, hang up your guild tapestry- and literally OWN a portion of the world because they were much more hard core.

    And not thinking things through, because one massive guild will form, conquer all keeps and rule the lands until enough people get disgruntled by the current guild's leaders and form a new big guild to conquer the old guild's keeps.

    Actually, that sounds exactly like Russia.

    I like how these russians are thinking. Also this is kind of exactly how RvR in Warhammer Online was advertised as first "take over a keep with your guild and raise your banners and start customizing the keep!".

    Reality was of course a lot paler and buggier

    There's that story (which is probably told in that thread just linked) about how City of Heroes just failed completely in Korea.

    The players didn't realize they could customize their appearance before hopping into the game. The game was full of people with the default appearance. They were expecting to grind for costume parts, because that's what they were used to.

    Man, its been said already, but holy shit are the GW2 screenies bi-polar. One will look like the most generic MMO from 4 years ago and then the next will look wonderful.

    The don't compete with the sheer absurd beauty of the TERA screens, but the good ones at least certainly stand on their own merits.
