    As you all know, frogster will be the publisher for european TERA.
    I heard alot of fuss about frogster but i didnt knew what they were about until...
    After i read this article, i got scared:

    http://huntersinsight.wordpress.com/2011/01/14/runes-of-magic-reaps-what-it-sows/

    TL;DR;
    Basically its a story of a guy that quit ROM because they are money leeching everyone with the release of end-game content where you are FORCED to buy cash shop items in order to play it. Add that to bad community management, forum abuse etc... To the point where 1 guy supposedely hacked Frogster's ROM database and extracted player info (including credit card info) and is threatning to release that info to public if they don't do some stuff he demands to make the game better and the forums better.

    Frogster helped destroy Spellborn,, Spellborn I hear u all say? wtf was that? the best mmo that never happened :(

    I mean who the fuck would decide to seperate the UK and make them play on US servers in US time zones and not let them play on EU servers... urgh?

    R.I.P.

    PS - It was also a aim to hit mmo too, had to aim those spells was awesome, omfg almost skill in a mmo wtf next...

    Well, this is of course really bad for frogster, but i hope they and all other mmo publishers out there take a good look at what happened here and learn something!
    User interaction and community management aren't things you want to take on lightly...!

    lol, yeah Spellborn did have potential but their marketing wasnt very good either. Unlike most MMO's it wasn't very hyped, even though it may have deserved to be.

    Yeah who ever was in charge of marketing for Spellborn needed taken outside and beaten with sticks...

    if they dont place a beta in europe they will have huge problems. while ncsoft did a beta for aion they still had those problems:

    full servers and a queue for over 2000 people per server
    minor things (buggs - lags - char creation tool with not enouph options....)
    they would get feedback about what is good/bad and while they do not have it, the game could fail rather fast cause 80% usually decide within the first 30 lvls if they want to sub again

    these are just a few points but valid

    i would only buy tera to look at the wonderfull women with plastic sugery boobs / faces and ofc i can get this for free - its the internet !

    i used to play RoM and Spellborn as well. i never understood why they'd give their game to some pathetic publisher that specializes in f2p games.
    i'm also nervous about torchlight's partnership with perfect world. would hate to see that one go down the same road.

    There is no way a Scotsman would spend £2K on anything, let along a F2P MMO. I know this, I am one.
