I believe that the issue has to do with what's in between the game server and the client. Meaning the networks used connecting player to the game.

I don't know.

Well, there are a lot of issues that compound.

The part you're talking about is routing, and this is indeed a problem. As some posts above mentioned, the switch from Zayo to Savvis does have a direct impact on some people's latency. What we found in the past is that Savvis was generally better for most (but not all) American players, but worse for many (again, not all) customers coming from certain other parts of the world (Australia was one of the worst affected, for example). For people affected by this sort of problem, sometimes using a VPN will help.

But it's important to say that this isn't the entirety of the problem. Some people have perfectly fine routing to the server, but also experience party-wide lag in dungeons. When it affects everyone equally at the same time, it's not connection or routing related, but is something closer to the server. It could be one of the servers/services themselves. It could be routing equipment at the colocation facility, or inbound to it. Or it may be some unique way our NA client interacts with the game servers.

The problem with this whole situation is that it's complicated. If it were something as simple/obvious as just adding more RAM/CPU to the servers, that would be obvious (you'd see the high resource usage on the server) and extremely easy to fix. When you have multi-faceted problems like this, it's not easy. TERA is extremely lag-sensitive (much more so than most other MMORPGs on the market), and with as global a playerbase as TERA NA has all connecting to the same servers in Chicago, there will never be a day when EME can say they "fixed the lag problem." But they need to try to minimize as many causes as possible. The instance-wide stuff impacting dungeons/raids is the most egregious, and that's the primary issue they're trying to target with this "call to action."

u are talking too much. go live somewhere within lag area and you will understand.

You're being ignorant. Maybe you should go live closer to the data centers and you will understand.

@Spacecats

I don't know if this post will be deleted or not, and I'll try to keep it as 'vague' as possible so people who don't know, can't search for it.
I am by no means experts in that program, I am just saying what I have learned, and I won't explain in depth either, just simplifying it.
This will be a SUPER long post.

There is a reason why some people created that 'thou-shalt-not-named' program, TERA, being a 'real time combat' orientated game, is ping dependent, and as 'damage average calculator' becomes increasingly popular, some of the player's enjoyment focus would change from clearing instances, to comparing their 'scores'.

And as TERA gets more competitive in endgame, high ping players suffers in name calling because of ping tax.
Some people would call them bad, some would even label them as trash, shunning them, avoiding them, or even blocking them.
Now, some might argue that 'lol what era is this now? people still saying ping matters? git gud scrub'

Here is an example of how Tera combat system works,
Single Cast Skill (Example: Slayer's Measured Slice):
Press button for Measured Slice > Delay > Character uses Measured Slice

Using Single Cast Skills back-to-back(Example: Eviscerate to Measured Slice):
Press button for Eviscerate > Delay > Character uses Eviscerate > Press button for Measured Slice > Delay > Character uses Measured Slice

Using Channeling Skills (Example: Burst Fire, Burning Heart)
Hold down button for Burst Fire > Delay > Burst Fire first cast > Delay > Burst Fire second cast > Delay > Burst Fire third cast > Delay > Burst Fire fourth cast > you get the story.

Even charging skills like Thunder Strike and Radiant Arrow suffers from ping tax during every charge.

High Ping Players don't just suffer from skill delays, they suffer from hit delay too,
If there are and fast attacks, depending on your ping, you might even get hit the moment bosses starts to do attack animation.

I will use SKY CRUISER ENDEAVOR's Putrion as Example:
Boss' starts to prepare stun > Boss starts to fly up > AOE appears > Stunned

But since the animation is 1 second or lesser,
This is what high ping players gets
Boss' starts to prepare stun > Boss starts to fly up > Stunned

There are many other examples but i'll just list Putrion's.


And with that 'thou-shalt-not-named' program, high ping players can somewhat negates the delays for skills.

This is how that 'thou-shalt-not-named' program works:

Single Cast Skill (Example: Slayer's Measured Slice):
Press button for Measured Slice > Delay > Character uses Measured Slice

Using Single Cast Skills back-to-back(Example: Eviscerate to Measured Slice):
Press button for Eviscerate > Delay > Character uses Eviscerate > Press button for Measured Slice > Character uses Measured Slice

Using Channeling Skills (Example: Burst Fire, Burning Heart)
Hold down button for Burst Fire > Delay > Burst Fire first cast > Burst Fire second cast > Burst Fire third cast > Burst Fire fourth cast > you get the story.

And yes, that 'thou-shalt-not-named' program removes the subsequent delay for skill chaining, making your skills 'hit as fast as 0 ping'

And some people might then think, 'Hey 0 ping, that's unfair, even the people living in Chicago gets like 8 ping to 18 ping, not 0!'
Well, 100 ping delay = 0.1 second delay, so a 10 ping difference compared to a 0 ping is 0.01 second.
The advantages of that program gives to people who lives in Chicago is that much.

Now, there are 3 well known Devs who are related to that 'thou-shalt-not-named' program, and all three of them got banned,
Dev B, Dev M, and Dev P.

Dev M created that program, but he did not share it with anybody outside of his friend circle,and kept it a secret, hence for many years, only did he get 'found out' recently.

Dev B created that program, and sold it for gold(not going to mention how much), but he did not spread it to many people too.

Dev P created that program, and shared it to almost anybody for free.

Some of you who thinks it is unfair, is it really unfair if Dev P openly shares it so anybody can get it?

I believe EME knows about it at this point in time, and since they do know it helps players who have high ping to play on equal with people who lives in/near Chicago, they allow it silently, which makes this a 'Grey Zone'

Grey Zone is not black and white, it is '3rd party' but since it do no harm, it is allowed silently,
'damage average calculator' is one famous/popular example of something which is in the Grey Zone.

And since that program is an open source program, other people who knows coding, could use it for exploit,
the famous one is the one which is related to ruinous manor, where others can go pass the gate after first boss, and effectively skipping first boss.
Effectively moving this program from grey zone into black zone.

And then there comes a problem, where this unknown person, used ANOTHER 'thou-shalt-not-named' program, which is not even related, or close to what Devs B, M, and P made, to exploit Tera Reward System.

And this effectively made EME start all these 'Witch Hunts'.

Some of you might feel that 'hey this is NA server, go back to whatever region you are from if you want to complain about all these unfairness',
Let me tell you, not only does Europeans plays NA server, other regions like South East Asia plays NA servers too.
And South East Asia is a region with many different languages, and different countries, the currently publishers who are in SEA regions are
Taiwan, Japan, and Korea, which you HAVE to know Chinese, Japanese, or Koreans.
If you don't know any of these three languages, you won't be able to play.

And now think,
If everybody who is not living in NA, stops playing TERA as you wished, would you be able to see a 'lively server filled with people'?
And since every non-NA people left, there will be lesser people playing, and the price for tradable items would increase, are you fine with that?
And what about your in-game friends, are you sure all of your in-game friends, even close ones, are from NA?
And let's face it, the world is about money, since every non-NA people left, EME would definitely lose a portion of their revenue, and if they can't make decent profit, what do you think they would do?
If you are in their shoes, would you continue a business where you earn little money?

And from what I see from both sides, the only communication mentioned is 'random stranger whispering dev M, and dev M thought that random stranger is going to find evidence and report dev M for 3rd party program'

And I really do pity Spacecats for being the target of frustration and rage just because he is Community Manager, because of what EME did,
for those who don't know, it takes more than one person to make a decision, and a superior to make hard decisions.

To EME, not just Spacecats:
I know that '3rd party programs' are not allowed, and to EME, if you really want proof of benefits of high ping players using that 'thou-shalt-not-named' program, I'm pretty sure a lot of people would gladly take videos and show you the difference, I believe Dev B even has videos about it.

And could you give the Devs one more chance, and communicate with them? I feel that, banning them just because of a 'failed communication' seems really unfair to them, and ultimately, what they did really did benefit a lot of players, numbering in the thousands.(there are proof of this as well)
And if you want their direct contact, I'm pretty sure there will be a few who would instantly tell you about it, heck, if you send me a whisper, I would even tell you about their contact in a Messenger Chat Application.

Ok now, Check box time,
  • No memes or videos. Use your own words to discuss the topic and try not to derail things. - Checked, no memes, no videos.
  • Don't link to any 3rd party programs. - Checked, no linking to any 3rd party programs.
  • Don't name any specific 3rd party programs. - Checked, did not name any programs at all.
  • Don't attempt to interpret the Terms of Service for others. - Checked, did not talk about ToS.
  • No witch hunting or calling out individuals. - Checked - No witch hunting, no name calling either, there's no names mentioned either, except for mentioning spacecats.

I hope this clarifies on how that program works, and why people uses it.

well said.

Well i was hoping for the best for returning dungeons as i expected Damage and endurance and HP buffs but NOT THAT EXAGGERATED

The thing is...

Bosses have WAY too much hp, i remember Yana (and the other bosses) not having THAT much HP i think it has 1 billion HP!? the damage difference from old generation surely it changed but not by that much, it increased from lucid times to Deathwrack from around 25% maybe 40% tops but the HP buff is over a 100% (i think cant remember old yana) is ridiculous makes the old dungeons such as BRNM, TS, DFHM boring cause bosses have way too much HP, making dungeon way too long.

Any players feeling the same thing around the old dungeons?

wew. stop complaining. long hp is fun

you must die lol

I dieded.

I'm confused yosha patch note say scythe increase dmg 20% Version II base damage from 601 to 721( is a 20% more dmg) but in na patch note say scythe now does 10% more damage in PvE . nerf warrior ? :v

If you read the whole change on Yosha's patch note you would also notice that the Korean patch notes also said 10% but in-game the change was 20%. It seems the values are different per region's notes but in-game it's all the same -shrug-

Hi i dont know why but i get in Broken Prison 10FPS and in other dungeons constantly 15-30FPS but i dont know why.
I bought a new gaming PC and Tera runs worse then before. Before i had like constantly 40 to 50 FPS. I cant believe that i only get 10FPS with this setup.
I put the settings down and get the same results. If the settings are on max its the same FPS. I updated my graphic driver and i watched the temperatures.
Cpu is constantly at 55Degrees and GPU is at around 35-40degrees. I feel like Tera isnt using their power. So i need help. I alrdy did Bernkastels optimization guide and tried the stuff there out but it had no effect.


My specs:
CPU :Intel Core i7-6700 | 4x 3.4GHz, 8MB L3-Cache
Mainboard: MSI B150M Mortar | Intel B150, mATX
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB | MSI 6GT OC
RAM: 16GB DDR4-2133 | 2x 8GB
The thing that delivers energy: 500W - Corsair CX Series

Hope someone can fix this!

Not gonna lie that gameforge event looks pretty nice and even better doesn't take them 2-5 steps of complete [filtered] drops in order to get the rewards to a decent level, kinda pathetic that EME needs to give us tier 7 or tier 4 feedstock as an event reward and wait until after the rage from players in order to make it half way decent rewards.

Seriously though Christmas comes once a year and we cant have one event? Even worse when majority of us are having massive lag spikes daily and it would be awesome if we had some event to do in between the points where we cant even look at a dungeon without disconnecting.

eme is dying soon XD

There's no information on that in the patch notes.

[ Note: KTERA is closing Harrowhold on January 12th,
and is planning to reopen sometime in March. ]

Not in this patch note but was included in the translated note, probably info from Ktera forum or tumble/previous patch note.
Those price though. Might as well tell ppl to throw their essences away.

On topic, this Lunarian class is pretty much slayer on permanent ICB. 100% reset cd on main dps/chain skills when using almost every other skills lol.
