    Yeah. In the "Hours you can play" field, be sure you're putting a whole number (e.g. 7) and not "7-8". No punctuation in that field or the application dies.

    That should solve the problem.

    So many games come out promising to out do WOW and none have of yet.. There is always the rush and the start and then it dies down to a crawl after a year or so. Then most go back to WOW :p

    Have to say after playing the FFXIV beta and finding some things about it either confusing, annoying or just not to my taste im really looking forward to Tera, if you havent looked at all the screenshots then its worth doing.

    Im hoping that both SW TOR and Tera are going to be awesome because it will fulfil both fantasy and sc fi mmo needs :)

    Considering I first heard about Tera the same time I heard about Aion, I'd say that more development time should help in that respect. I hope.

    It's looking pretty good. Definitely got this, Rift and SWTOR on my radar.

    They said something about Korean version, what's the go with that? I'd sworn I'd never play another port of a Korean MMO again...

    Edit:

    From the FAQ on the website

    What does Westernization mean, exactly? Are you just translating the Korean version?Westernization means taking the core Korean version of TERA and making it appeal to a more Western–specifically North American and European–audience. Audiences have different expectations of games in different parts of the world, and playing MMOs in Korea is a different kind of experience than playing them in the West. We have a team of writers who are fashioning the game’s lore and plot, writing dialogue, and creating quests and story from the ground up. The game that will launch in North America will have significant differences from the Korean version.
    It may of course be completely different, but that reads very much like what they said about Aion....

    LOL That's why I am not getting too excited about this game at the moment. Unless I am totally bored, I will be waiting till the first month of this game hs run its course before considering it. So we can get some real feedback.

    Once bitten twice shy; thats my feeling with Korean MMO's. After playing Aion.

    Latency seems to be a big issue here with combat being broken down into each swing of the sword.

    Again going back to Aion latency was a prob there.

    However it looks awesome. I'll give it a go most likely.

    however it could be l8er if i am enjoying swtor. (thats if tor comes out b4 tera)

    If you are talking about the "skill lag" seen on various footage, it is actually a freeze-frame type effect to accentuate the skill, not latency. I know quite a few people have been put off by the effect on the official forums, but I think it is something you'd get used to.

    Also, got this snippet from a letter to the community from Frogster:

    I really like the sound of that.
