Leaving to play Tera since it's going f2p and is a better quality game than GW2 ATM. Letting people know since I get a lot of fan mail and questions from people in the community. It was fun reading your messages, and helping those that needed it be better players. The competition is getting stale and nothing is progressing for the better. I find Wv3 or tPvP to be unbalanced, and the NA side isn't up to par on the competitive side for my taste. Since all the good players either quit playing or left for the EU side, it's about that time for me to be moving on as well.

I'm sure I'll be back someday when the game is working as intended, and Anet can figure out how to manage and develop a game properly. It was a blast playing together for the people that had the chance, and JQ is without a doubt the best server ever to play on! I'm glad I moved there, and hope the community keeps building for the better. If Agress comes back PM me... I might come back if he starts rolling Wv3 again! :P

Anyway, still looking forward to the changes in February, but it isn't going to be enough IMO! I'll always be looking at the progression and competitive level of GW2, and hope something brings me back! If you have any questions or comments please leave them here or message me; I would be happy to answer them.

Farewell - Gankfest™

What is the point of a goodbye thread? Anyway, good luck in Tera and wherever else your ventures will take you.

I love how you find GW2 PvP to be lacking and then in the same sentence say you're going to Tera.

Isn't Tera from the dev's that stole from and left NCsoft and ripped off Lineage 3? They were found guilty.

Here is the evidence and legal stuff. http://tsi.brooklaw....alcomplaint.pdf

http://www.gamesindu...eage-iii-assets

TERA is just lineage 3 with a new name. It's basically an NCSoft product.

Quote

The product director who left NCSoft first and asked the others to join him has been sentenced to 18 months of jail time with 2 years of suspended sentence and a manager was sentenced to 8 months of jail time with 2 years suspended sentence. Another 2 staff members have been fined 10 million ($8,767) and 7 million ($6,137) Korean Won each.

It was a few devs who left from NCsoft, and they created the source code anyway for L3/Tera. Personally Idc as they have open world PvP, GvG, and Battlegrounds along with a ranking system. Overall it's a better game than GW2, maybe that will change down the road. Not really a lot of games to choose from on the MMO front as they all have taken a turn for the worst. For me it was a toss up between Tera and Rift, and with Rift I don't find it worthy to P2P. Tera is something to do while waiting on something better to come down the line. Between Tera and LoL S3... My PvP time is quite occupied!

I probably won't play TERA ever simply because I know they ripped off NCsoft and lineage 3 but I know what you mean by waiting for something else to come out, personally im really looking forward to Star Citizen, freeflight space sim rpgmmo coming out though not until 2014 maybe longer :(. Same guy who made freelancer and the wing commander games owns the company making it and it is funded by the players, no publishers involved and no subscriptions.

Where's that list of good players by the way?  I want to make sure none of them try to be sneaky and stay on the N/A servers.

I'm not sure that is correct. The original Kickstarter(?) fund was simply to get enough money together to enable him to find the necessary funding to make the game, so the players are not funding it in toto (or even to a small degree probably - a couple of million doesn't get much now).

Tera > GW2 ?

No. I'm sure people have their opinions, but Tera is such so far down the totem quality-wise, and fun-wise. Good thing though that we can freely move between them, such a great time for MMOs.

Incorrect, originally needed 2 million, players donated $7,382,150. There is no publisher involved and there is no subscription. Sure he probably has other investors but they said it is primarily funded by the players.

Star Citizen holds and broke the world record now for most successfully funded crowdfund game. Also it was originally his site that started it, they added kickstarter later on to give another way of donating.

Also this is what they said about publishers in today's gaming industry and why they are not needed.

Quote

"Publishers are useful in the old physical distribution world, but the Internet is the great equalizer. Notch didn’t need a publisher to reach 20-million Minecraft fans. Riot games didn’t need a publisher to reach 30-million League of Legends players, and Wargaming.net didn’t need a publisher to reach 20-million World of Tanks gamers.

If we were building a big “AAA” console game it would be crazy to try without a publisher. But we want to build a PC game and publishers increase costs because of their need to recoup their sizable overhead cost. We want to make sure all the money raised goes directly to the development of the game. So we’re throwing ourselves on the mercy of the PC gamers out there that share our vision and passion for the platform and the space combat genre to raise money outside of the “cartel” of traditional publishers.

The game will cost less, be more creatively pure, and, most importantly, be built for the real “core” audience – not some corporate suit worried about including all the casual gamers."

We really don't need any 'I'm quitting' threads in this forum. No matter how famous or infamous you are. And seeing as this is turning into a TERA debate I'm ending this here.
