The recent announcement by Bluehole Studios
and Frogster Online Gaming
that the latter had secured the European publishing rights to TERA
brought about something akin to an outcry from portions of the forthcoming fantasy MMORPG's community. While it wasn't quite millions of voices crying out in terror (and then being suddenly silenced
), there were a few indignant threads on the various TERA
fan sites. Why the brouhaha?
Apparently some fans have experienced everything from perceived shoddy customer service, to forum "censorship," to the wanton slaughter of helpless kittens in previous Frogster
-published titles (the largest of which is free-to-play behemoth Runes of Magic
). Frogster director of product management Daniel Ulrich has since extended an olive branch in the form of a post on the official TERA
forums, laying out the first of what will be several rounds of Q&A posts over the next few days.
Check out the thread
for some answers to your burning TERA
questions, including free-to-play vs. pay-to-play, support team specifics, and server hardware.
