    Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I don't see why people are bothered. I'm just saying if you are then you aren't the target audience. I mean, straight european/american porn is offensive in japan. Some other asian countries too. Yet here its no big deal.

    As stated its pretty much just moe proportions. Hell, the JSDF recruitment posters have moe characters on them. Whether you sexualize them or not seems entirely up to the person in question. You can say its 'omg unavoidable' but.. eh, I don't see some hyper sexualized little kid. I see a moeblob wearing over the top armor like everyone else in the game. If she was prancing around in a little preschooler outfit or something I'd see a problem.

    Interesting Trivia:

    Apparently this game was the center of a recent legal dispute over in the East.

    The lead devs for this game originally worked at NCsoft and were making Lineage 3 prototypes. They wanted to make it an action game and modified a build with the U3 engine and showed it to their bosses. They were more or less told, "Nobody here is going to buy this, no." And cancelled it.

    The two devs said, "Well fuck you too!" Took the engine they modified, created Bluehole studios and changed the name to TERA. Got funding from NHN and started doing serious work on it.

    NCsoft sued them after seeing that the game had picked up a considerable amount of press/popularity and they ended up settling for the equivalent of 2 million USD. BHS got to keep the art assets.

    In response, NCsoft starts making Blade and Soul, with similar action based gameplay.

    Announcing IGN as TERA's First Closed Beta Partner
    January 19, 2012

    We've announced TERA's official release date in North America, launched the TERA Beta Sign-Up page, and started a "retweetstakes" for your chance at all-access beta invitations… what's next? How about a peek at our TERA beta plans!

    Last week, we mentioned invitation giveaways as an upcoming, additional way to get into TERA's closed beta tests. We'll be working with major game industry press sites and key MMO news outlets as part of our beta test schedule. To kick things off, we are proud to announce IGN as our first closed beta partner. You can find a brief mention in our first race video, which premiered on their site today (and be sure to watch the video if you haven't yet).

    There will be plenty of opportunities for the TERA community to get involved and play TERA before the game launches on May 1. We'll announce our beta test schedule and more details on partners and giveaways in the coming weeks.

    Ugh, IGN. I'll put this in the OP I *mulph* guess.

    Sure is puritanical all up ins.

    Cultural differences. Don't like it? You're being a bigot. So either way everyone is in the wrong. Best solution? Ignore it. Its 'classic' asian design, simple as that. Here I truck out Ragnarok Online, FFXI, FFXIV, Fantasy Earth Zero, FlyFF, Lunia, Vindictus, etc, etc, etc. All have similarly proportioned characters who prance around in, at times, questionable attire.
    This is stunningly terrible.

    First off, I already explained that this has nothing to do with sex being an inherently bad thing. So your puritanical comment is just code for "I did not read Raz's post in full."

    Secondly, cultures are completely capable of being toxic or having toxic elements. Would you call someone a bigot that pointed out the racism of minstrel shows? That certainly was part of American culture back in the day, but we recognize how shitty that aspect of our culture was. So if an aspect of modern Korean culture treats women as absurdly proportioned fun bags, then that aspect of Korean culture can go fuck itself. Note that I am not saying Korean culture is like this. I have no idea. American culture still has elements of this, so it's clearly not an isolated thing.

    This doesn't even get into the race that is basically sexualizing underage girls. I mean, if it had a male counterpart you could say "That's fucking creepy." It wouldn't redeem anything, but at least it wouldn't, yet again, treat solely women as objects to be gawked at. Instead it's creepy and misogynistic.

    Again, because you apparently didn't catch it the first time, revealing outfits aren't inherently. The problem is a lack of options in how one can look. Men have a larger variety options. They can go from lard-butt to even male stripper in TERA! That's pretty cool. Women, on the other hand, are stuffed in strips of fabric and seemingly forced into heels regardless of race. Again, the whole "undergarments" option would be a nice attempt to compromise, but it doesn't really do shit. Show someone the "after" picture from that linked image, and they'll still call that a fairly revealing outfit. Maybe it's just THAT specific undergarment that covers up so little, but if I was showing off a feature, then I'd pick the most dramatic before-and-after example.

    As a final note, "this is the way it's always been" is just an appeal to tradition. That's not a fucking excuse to continue poor behavior.

    yeah when that popped up in a conversation I was having elsewhere I was thinking cosmetic shit like those fancy gowns or those weird lumberjack shirts like on WoW for some reason. That's just basically a paint over. If the words weren't there and without being told I would have assumed that it was just another version of any other armor.

    Skill Info:

    Instead of talent trees you get a system akin to Final Fantasy 9's skill system called Glyphs. The glyphs add modifiers and effects to your different attacks and are customized to your individual playing style. You get a limited number of glyph points based on level and different glyphs can cost anywhere from 3-7 glyph points, forcing you to choose what you want wisely.

    Higher level weapons have crystal slots that function like Gem slots in WoW gear, crystals add things like MP, Defense, Attack power, but also come in varieties where the crystal effects vary based upon where you attack an enemy from. (i.e. Increased MP regeneration via attacking an enemy from behind)

    Glyph Calculator (Switch to English via the drop down menu on the right)
    http://www.teraguru.ru/glyphcalc#wr


    EDIT: At a casual glance it may look like you have a lot of freedom to choose but it seems it just looks that way. Depending on what you're doing it looks like you're going to be choosing the glyphs best suited for your role. Say you're a Mystic and you know you're going to be running a lot of dungeons. Guess you better load up on those glyphs that boost your healing abilities! Really though it's just a talent tree split up individually.

    Recent berserker gameplay vids

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sRnlRdjHZgg

    EDIT: Concerning the state of classes in KR and JPN retail: As of August of last year, there are no hybrid classes. Mystics were buffed to full healers and warriors were buffed to be full tanks. They can do dps, at about half capacity as full dps classes, but it won't be their role in a dungeon setting.

    "Orbs play the exact same role as the priest burst healing.
    Mystics have 4 buffs and they must choose: (Crack or Anti-Crit + Speed or Crit). You will almost always be running crack and crit.
    Priests have defensive buffs and a strength buff.

    The primary difference is that priests have to do all the work themselves (aim the group healing) and mystics require their group to pick up the orbs. Mystics can give mana to their group (which people pick up quick).

    They are a healer, completely just with a slightly more active healing style. Saying they are primarily a debuffer because they can debuff (and should) is the same as saying they are a dps because of their DoT."

    It's been an interesting discussion. I think anything that raises awareness about the game is a good thing. But it's also brought up a couple of other interesting issues that are core problems in not only this game but in a majority of video games as a whole. It's been pretty enlightening

    I think the fact that you're sexuallizing anime characters is more your own issue than one with the game.
    Those who speak loudest and all.

    As for the rest of it: Outside of picking a specific race that is already a lardass (And also thus dictating other things.) there is no body sliders or anything. So all males are chippendale beefcakes chiseled from the rock hard abstone of Conan-ic glory. The only option for a real derpy fatass is the dogs. So if I want to be anything but a male stripper I have to be a dog. I guess that makes sense. in its own twisted way.

    So, no, TERA has no more customization options for men than women. You're a stripper one way or the other. Or a moeblob/dog/rock.

    Also if you can't giggle at the ludicrousness of ho-hooves, I don't even know what to tell you.

    Good god you are getting desperate in your attempts to defend this shit.

    This is not a byzantine thing: we can identity the human body and what is seen as appealing without actually finding it appealing. Can you not look at whatever sex you're not attracted to and tell people what traits people would find appealing there? If not you're probably lying or just don't get out enough. But you're just trying to project your own hang-ups in a sad attempt to deflect the issue. We know what is commonly considered attractive on human bodies. These characters are just artistic representations of human bodies. It does not take a genius nor a sex fiend to draw the parallels here. People have been getting off to drawings for eons, so let me just sink your battleship right there and get this discussion back on track.

    I'm just going to assume you conceded on the whole culture thing since you quietly dropped that in order to attack me on a weird tangent. Feel free to apologize any time for calling me a bigot, by the way.

    Yes, the races are shallow. But males at least have a greater breadth of options thanks to the race selection. Yes, you're stuck as a lardass until the day the server shut down. But you have the option to be a lardass by rolling race X or be a thin man-stripper by rolling race Y. Females are stuck with a very narrow range of body types. Not even race offers much in the way of options.

    Aion already did "inbred heels" before. It was pretty stupid then, and remains so. I guess it might be funny if it was unique to that race, but every female is forced into a pair of heels.

    Rorus, I see where you're coming from with this. Nobody plays a Female Dwarf anything on WoW but the OPTION was there, yes.
    Actually that was one of the things WoW did get right. They had pretty wide range of body types among the races for both genders.

    Something about TERA that I found odd in the character creation is that they offered the option of facial sliders but not body type sliders like Aion did.

    "...only mights and maybes."
  • StericaSterica Yes Registered User, Moderator mod
    Well, I imagine body sliders means you have a lot of combinations to consider when making armor. Which is why race can be a good way to offer a variety of body types.

    I think presets should have been offered at the very least if armor permutations were a concern. TOR did that recently and while it wasn't a new concept, I felt it was an okay way to do that sort of thing. I don't know if they had other concerns to take into consideration, such as hitboxes considering the mechanics of the game

    Take the female Aman for example. I think they wanted to go the "Burly musclegirl" route, but why do it halfway? We're talking about a race where, lorewise, if the male wants to wed a female he has to defeat her in a 1 vs 1 brawl!

    I didn't drop it, I just didn't feel like dragging out how bigotry is an ugly thing. I figured you'd just toss out an infraction if I went that route, so I left it alone.

    As for the 'byzantine thing', Beezel already pointed it out clearly and you chose to ignore it completely. It's a 3D anime style. You don't like it, fine, whatever, but thats what it is. Whether you agree with that or not is entirely up to you, and whether you somehow get some kind of obsessive hatehardon for it is also up to you. Can I tell? Sure. Did I get all mad at Conan for only having beefcakes when I wanted to be a trundling lardass? No. Do I get pissed at comics for always making the primary superhero more ripped than a pro wrestler? No. Why? Because it is what it is. Why have I not mentioned females at all in this? Because I'm not a female and I'm not going to white knight for them. If they are offended, they can obviously voice their own opinions. Trying to do it for them is just another form of being misogynistic and believing them incapable of defending themselves. So I'll leave that out of this.

    This is being released by a western publisher at this point, though, and I'm sure they've done their research. If its really such a market problem as to be some real life issue, they'd do something about it. It's a business. Apparently it isn't that big of an issue and they did what they felt was good enough. Lawyers, focus groups and everything else involved in these 50+ page long list of employees and contractors probably would have informed them about it several times over.

    I've yet to project anything, I just write it off as a 'whatever, its their game'. You know, the reasonable response. I don't hop up on a high horse about how 'OH BUT ITS WRONG' or 'OH BUT ITS RIGHT' I just say, 'it is what it is', because it is, and nothing you say will change that. Your only option is to ignore it, not play, and let your refusal to do so speak as some kind of rejection of the concept. Elsewise you're getting worked up over something that you can, ultimately, not effect and can easily ignore.

    And as for 'Not even race offers a lot of options', Well aside from WoW.. What does? Sad to say, thats the market. Even the already mentioned TOR, the only options you have for women is 'Thin, super thin, average thin and ghetto ass'. Yes, the last option for females in every species is apparently ghetto ass. Heck even WoW probably only tried it is because of the super cartoon style making it easy.

    Regardless, its crazy korean super fantasy over the top design for most of the races. It's what they do, its reflected in pretty much all their mediums. I find the amount of work and design that went into the armor to be rather amazing.

    e0072368_4d34af6407889.jpg

    I can appreciate the platemail high heels though. Man that blacksmith must have been a genius.

    Also, man, if Amani is half-assed, I dunno what else you were expecting out of them.

    If you bring up ugly (and go making ugly accusations), then don't be surprised when people want to sit you down and walk you through it.

    The anime "style" has nothing to do with how dressed up the characters are. You can have a wide variety of people and still claim an "anime style." So I don't even know what you're trying to get at here.

    Once again, you seem to be late to the party. I already stated that, not only will it prove harmless to the game, it may even be a quiet sales booster. Sex sells. Nobody is denying it. But that doesn't make things right. You're bringing up a lot of lousy excuses here. I'm not that worked up over it as you may think, and I'm going to vote with my wallet here and probably skip on it. "It's their game." is another kind of "duh" moment. You're free to make horribly offensive things, but the question is "Should you?" You're needlessly ostracizing considerable groups of people by going this route in the game.

    I guess the last thing is "Other games lack options," and then you proceed to name that both the biggest MMO on the market and the newest kid on the block are at least trying to offer options. Not that it would magically be acceptable if every other game did it. That's just a weak appeal to popularity.

    I think I've spoken enough on this, and don't want to derail the thread. I don't think I was going to write so much on the subject until you called me a bigot for finding a race of underage catgirls creepy.

    (also cosmetic items in kTERA)

    It's great when someone can be attacked for defending something but it's fine to walk into a thread and smear feces everywhere because you personally don't like it. Even bringing up Aion, you know theres development costs for these things to make entirely different animations and models? They don't recycle animations for 90% of the models like Blizzard does. I would also gladly take 1 body type over the horrible stretching and or clipping that both Aion and TOR have. TOR didn't do anything special, they just mangle the armor to fit anything that isn't considered the "base" type.

    Get over it and forget it exists.

    This is pretty much the short and long of the past couple of pages. I recognize the grievance. I find myself agreeing with the majority of it. As Rorus stated, they'll probably be taking a pass and that's Rorus' right and I respect and defend that to the death as I don't think Rorus is in some weird minority on the subject. Am -I- offended by it? Not really no. But on the same token I can see why it will offend some people and it makes me wish they had taken some extra steps to maybe not offend as many people. Believe it or not, games like this are incredibly niche. People want to look towards WoW and think that it's an easy money genre but it's probably one of the riskiest ventures you can take. World of Warcraft is the exception, not the rule. I think Bluehole and EnMasse are being incredibly ballsy in that regard by not trying to go the sure numbers route and try to appeal to as many people as possible but maybe that wasn't in their game plan? They seem to know what kind of audience they are selling to. Does that mean people like Rorus are some kind of uppity moral crusader for not liking what I like? Am I some kind of maladjusted immoral neckbeard pervert because I'm kind of "eh" over the issue? No.

    I think what I'm trying to say is, err'body stop gettin' mad at video games :(

    That's offensive to my personal tastes!

    The rest of your argument makes factual errors (every player race in WoW has unique animations, or it's at least not "90% recycled") or makes the oh-so-compelling argument of "get over it." Uh...no. Hey, maybe you should get over my refusal to get over it? Is that how this works?

    You're not some moral delinquent for playing the game. You can enjoy the gameplay so long as you recognize that it's not doing anything to address the growing audience of MMORPGs and vidja games. It's certainly not a progressive piece of work from a social standpoint. Get this: you can play the game and make a plea to the developers to address the issue. We live in such a world that makes this possible.

    And not everyone is a crusader that wants to get involved in social issues.

    I for one, just want to play the game and have a good time. That's all.

    So we get stiff once in a while. So we have a little fun. What’s wrong with that? This is a free country, isn’t it? I can take my panda any place I want to. And if I wanna buy it a drink, that’s my business.

    Then do that, no one is forcing you to get involved in the discussion on the social issues. Feel free to play the game and discuss the gameplay. Other people will play the game and discuss the gameplay and the social issues, and some people won't play the game and discuss whatever.
