    people who would rather see the elin in thongs canceling their preorder sounds like the nicest thing we could get actually

    This is something that I can agree with.

    Also, people threaten stuff like that all the time. Percentage of people that actually do it? Like 0.1%

    So I got everything downloaded, fired it up, and got to check out the server select screen. SO EXCITED!!! Then I checked out the settings and was happy to see that auto detect pretty much maxed the settings for me. So I did a pretty good job with this PC. :D

    Oh of course, this is just what they are trying to relate. Basically it was a lot of handwaving and them blaming them City slicker Korean boys which don't tell us country folk nothin'

    Yeah, I am sure Bluehole so radically changed the software tools that the people at Frogster, who have been working with them for how long now, couldn't figure them out at all.

    Apparently you can't actually subscribe to IGN prime right now though. Or there are some issues with the sign up form.

    And the only F2P game of note they handle for EU is Runes of Magic.

    I know they previously handled the EU version of Warhammer Online, they fucked up so badly Mythic pulled it from them.

    Money.

    I bet they wanted a smaller cut of the profits than everyone else. I mean, we got Atari here in the US, and they aren't know for handling great MMOs either.

    This is a make it or break it game for Bluehole, and by extension En Masse. If it does well, they will be around for awhile, but if it does bad...

    Total Biscuit did a short thing with popori emotes. The way they ride their mounts is totally a "fuck the police"-esque goofy saddle bouncing. (One of them was a pipe-smoking pug in a badass popped collar jacket riding Ruin from darksiders)

    Oh.

    Popori
    Elin
    F. Castanic
    M. Aman
    F. High Elf
    Everyone else

    I had heard they changed hitboxes for the western version of the game, mainly because in general female Castanic had one of the smallest hitboxes and 'best' racials for PvP.

    Well maybe not the most mains, but I bet most people who don't use it for their main, will have a Popori alt for the hilarity of it.

    I also heard about the hit box thing. Apparently, F. Castanics had the 2nd smallest hitbox. Smallest being Elin.

    I bet we will see a difference in race populations on PVP servers vs. PVE servers too.

    Hitboxes not being as much of a concern to PVE players.

    Okay, I just went into the RACES subforum of the Official and I will never do that again. I wanted to see if someone had started a "What race will you play?" thread and I ended up clicking on an Elin thread... Apparently the fact that Elin look like little girls and thus attiring them in skimpy outfits, like what a Castanic would wear (!!!), would be inappropriate is lost on them.

    Never again.

    So looks like most of my playing will be done on Sunday night after work.

    We've learned that many of you who have purchased a pre-order copy of TERA from a brick-and-mortar retailer are having difficulty getting pre-order game codes that you can use to play in the first TERA closed beta test.

    It's our understanding from working with our physical distribution partner that these codes were only recently conveyed to the retailers, and so the codes haven't been distributed to stores to provide to gamers like you. Yeah, well, that really sucks on all levels. We are definitely sorry about this issue, and we are going to fix it.

    At this point, we're communicating directly with the retailers to see whether there's anything we can do to speed the process of getting these codes distributed, and we will keep you informed as soon as we hear any updates. We will also update you regarding the pre-order availability of our physical collector's edition and which retailers you will be able to pre-order from.

    As gamers ourselves, we know that this uncertainty about access to this world-premier event is no doubt incredibly frustrating. Please do your best to keep your cool, and we'll do our best to ensure that you get codes just as soon as humanly-and computerly- possible.

    Thank you,

    The En Masse Entertainment Team


    Long story short, Atari decided that giving these codes out to distributers wasn't very important at all.

    Thanks for the post, Beezel. Helped a lot. Not what I wanted to read ... but it's still good to know.

    "Sorry for the mix up, we'll have your codes right away"

    THAT'S what I wanted to hear, heh.

    On a side note, my wife really wants to play an Elin as an alt but has become afraid of any attention in game she might get because of it (worried about the POSITIVE attention I should say from certain types of people). Luckily she's not letting it detract her too much (and it helps my brother's wife is also going to play and make one with her to alt together with). I'm in full agreement with above posters happy with anyone canceling over the change to undergarments though for those guys. I'm generally against changes and censorship but ... come on. If that change is an issue to you, I can't help but immediately think something's up with you. It might not be the case but the perception is pretty damn high.

    I just wanna be a male demon archer and have a good time looking awesome.

    Any news if archers have to deal with ammo?
