We like to highlight the hard work and passion of our fans. Never fails to thrill us. Check out Tera Templates, created by Kestrel. We pulled up some virtual chairs, and asked Kestrel some questions about running a TERA fansite.
In your heart you know you’re the best—now you can prove it. Show off your dominance or plan the downfall of others with TERA’s leaderboards. Find new allies. Choose new enemies. See your name up in lights.
We asked you to tell us about players who improve the game for everyone and to describe how they do it. Your chronoscroll contest entries really brightened our day! Lots of wonderful TERA players step up to help others, in the game and out. The decisions weren’t easy, but we finally managed to pick one entry from each server. These exceptional gamers—and the players who nominated them—each win a chronoscroll, which is good for a month of free game time (and are sellable at the trade broker). The entries speak for themselves, so here are the winners.
Bringing TERA to the Western market was more than a business decision; it gave us a chance to change how people play MMOs. More specifically, TERA gave us the opportunity to reshape combat so battles could move beyond “Tab target, press 1, press 2, press 3, repeat until out of combat.”
To explain the decisions that went into TERA’s action combat system—and all the calculations behind them—we went to the source: Seungmo Koo, the server architect for TERA.
