lol That interview is absolutely terrible.
"How did you enjoy the game?"
"Oh i didnt really pay attention to any of the actual game itself, i just leveld as fast as possible."

@Germaximus What did you expect from someone either really named Dog or called Dog?
Some people just enjoy pvping, some just enjoy endgame content, some enjoy the storyline. At least the game is gonna have enough of everything for everyone.

"So how did you enjoy Vegas?"
"Oh i didnt really pay attention to any of the actual city itself, i just ran from one side of it to another."

@sauceofmagic I've never been to vegas so i dont get it.
Im not saying somethings wrong with people that do that kind of thing, but to interview someone that doesnt even give a crap is pretty hilarious.

@Germaximus Sadly they interviewed him on his road to 50. He enjoyment of the game is clearly endgame content so all the crafting and storyline don't mean a thing to him. People wanted too much from the interview that the player didn't set out for. It would be cool to have an interview for someone that did crafting and someone that got to 50 by doing majority of the quests. That would give the people more of an idea what the game has to offer.

@Alex Oglitchkin Exactly. I dont mind that he got interviewed, seems to be the thing to do now with the first level capped person on these games. However he had nothing to say you know. Pretty funny and sad.

@Germaximus
sorry I was just extrapolating on your though ;)
I completely agree. I do not even see the point in such interviews.

This game looks very similar to Aion. Same art style and whatnot. That is a good thing for sure, but I wonder if what WAR was to WOW, TERA is to AION?

My gf wants to switch from Aion to this, so just wondering what the difference is between them.

@theSkillfull1 go to TERAfans, watch some youtube videos and you will get plenty of answers to know what the game has to offer. There will be PVE and PVP servers for the US/EU. Target system is nothing like Aion's. You have to target your AOEs, target your attacks, even target your heals. Size of characters matters on their hit box from being hit and also the range they can hit someone. Tanking has it's benefits of being big or small race. In one fight you can apparently dodge a dragon's fire because you are too small and he flames above you. Just read up on TERAfans about it.

He was a top 200 Starcraft 2 player for 7 weeks "before he got bored". So I wouldn't worry about his interpretation of how easy the dungeons are.

Also, there is always someone who powers through content like this it doesn't mean it wont take normal people months.

@End Dream

It also depends on when those seven weeks were. He could have been in the top 200 right after release but "got bored" when people started catching him.

@(Unverified) It doesn't matter when he was top 200. Its an incredible feat to be in that category at any time, even right at release.

People played SC2 beta for over a year.

Silly. I would never do this. I play MMOs for the content and the experience, not to be the highest level the fastest...

There are incentives to rush to max level in a PvP game. It's very telling what games people play when they are actually surprised by this.

Being at max level ensures you won't be at a level disadvantage in a PvP fight. You also get a small time window to monopolize world-bosses (and the drops) until the rest of the player base catches up.

Right on track.
Every MMO released since 2004 has had a max level player in under two weeks. What could go wrong?

And a congratulatory golf clap to EM/BH for letting people keep their beta characters. Hells ya, that's a GREAT idea. Not.

@mxt4347564czjv00q9w9qb1tppfr46hb It's not EM, just BHS. Thats how it has been in absolutely every major korean MMO to release in korea. It's just how they do things and they've been doing it for a long while.

Gosh, won't that look awesome on his CV? "I played a PC game really, really, REALLY fast!" Recruiters will be in awe.

this is just another asian grinder filled with blandness unoriginality and grind for the sake of grinding

Korean game development is a joke, and so is this game
