Recently the TERA "through the close, the original served 37 server for $15, and the highest number of online at the same time also by the original 165000 slashed to 6 ~ 70000.
And the crisis is the main reason of the contents of the game hard and game there are a lot of BUG and imbalance.
The professionals, "says a TERA" in the open beta test before advertising do some "fire", will the players' expectations aroused at, just can get such big disappointment. And in a "marketing internal NHN group of investors" the TERA "is also a deserted again, the whole game work team atmosphere is not very well.
