I'm still really looking forward to this title. It will be nice to not have the same old tab target combat.

...I hate to rain on their parade, but it seems to me that this game won purely on "it looks and sounds great". Which begs the question: Does it play well also? There's still something to said about judging a book by its cover. Just saying.

Honestly I had a similar niggling feeling on about why the game won an award, based off what I have read and heard about the games state. To be fair though, I believe the presidential award is only awarded to Korean-made games (if I'm understanding what was said right).

And well... considering my lack of knowledge of any AAA-quality MMOs being made in Korea, I guess it does have some advantage there.

@Utakata I've played the Korean version for about 3months. The game is very solid gameplay wise. What was lacking that they are fixing is lack of endgame content. They have added more areas, more dungeons, and their next patch is adding a raid or 2. What is nice is some of the complaints the US TERA board has talked about the Koreans have changed their game on some of our ideas. Sadly with the hype super low if they don't market it on tv and magazines they will probably suffer on population in the US version.

@DevilSei

Point taken.

@Alex Oglitchkin

I am not speaking from a personal perspective here. If you enjoyed the gameplay, more power to you. I am speaking of most of the awards going to graphics and audio which say nothing really about gameplay. And as DevilSei pointed out, the rewards may have gone to Tera because it was made in Korea. Which may or may not indicate anything about gameplay. Thus it seems to be a bit judged on the fluff rather on the substance. But I could be wrong.

Let's hope the US version is cleaned up. I'd really like this game to at least hold my attention, if nothing else.

Look at that picture. *sigh* Just more thinly veiled hentai for the mindless anime crowd. I'm Asian-American, and this continues to embarrass me. NOTHING innovative has come out of Korean and Japanese MMOs since...what, Lineage I? *sigh* I can't believe people continue to buy these games.

There is no hentai in this game, veiled or otherwise. Ecchi yes, but that's not hentai. If you're gonna hate the genre at least use the proper terms. Thx.

A bit strong-worded Channel84 is, but I think he is equating Oyjord being Asian-American and criticizing (a part of ) Asian society to Michael Jackson not wanting to look black (taking plastic surgery and denying he was black)?

Without getting into something that will horribley derail this thread, but there had been rumours I'm told that Michael's surgeries may have been the result of an underlying medical condition that was not made known to the media. Adding to his eccentricities, I'm not sure his intentions where not to be black even if there it wasn't...

...but really I don't want to turn this into a race debate.

@Plastic

...it's also presumptuous to assume those who know the terms are into it.

This game should win the Tacking bloody forever to get released outside Korea. Well to sad for them when the game comes not one cares cuz we will be playing GW2 and Star wars the old republic when this game comes out and they will have to close it down 1 month after lunch.

That's not entirely true... for my part, I couldn't care less about SW:TOR because I played the beta and I hated it. The graphics are ugly and outdated, the gameplay is exactly like World of Warcraft, nothing innovative except the voice overs which I dislike as well because I like the movies but not the in-game story.

For GW2, there's no dedicated healing class. End of story, that disgusted me and this is the reason I won't be playing it.

TERA on the other hand is innovative with its combat system, its political system and the graphics are not only next-gen but freaking gorgeous.

@djodars You dislike SW:TOR because it had "nothing innovative." And you are "disgusted" by GW2 because "there's no dedicated healing class."

What game has a dedicated healing class? Every game i've ever played has had classes that could heal and also do something else.

@djodars you either one innovation or you don't want innovation. Guild wars 2 taking out the need for a specific class is innovation. Wanting something different, but then hating it for doing something different is just plain stupid. That's what they call contradiction.

Generally, when someone like you claims to want something different they generally like the want the EXACT same thing, but with a different lore. Which will explain why you were interested in SwTor because you wanted the exact experience probably as WoW, but got tired of the graphics and lore, so you went to SwTOR and when it didnt present you with graphics you QQ and called it bad.
