TERA Server Merges

A Fall Producer Letter on the TERA Website announces server merges are coming this month for the MMORPG. Here's a server merge FAQ, and here's word:

Fall is a season of changes, and the world of TERA is going to be busy for the next few months. First on the list of change is our server status. We’ve got several metrics to measure server activity—and many of ours are below the mark. We’ve also been listening to the issues our players have been having in the game: lack of resources, lack of groups, extended wait times for dungeons, and so on. We feel that the best way to address these problems is to increase the number of simultaneous players on our servers. To that end, we will be merging servers on September 18, 2012.

Where some might look on this as a negative, I feel differently. By combining our servers, we facilitate a more unified community and give players a more full, alive world where finding groups, locating rare items (for lower prices!), and getting into dungeons quickly are the norm. Most importantly, combined servers will allow us to run more regular, player-focused events where we get to interact with our players. You can find a link to our detailed FAQ regarding this process at the bottom of this letter. It will be updated further as we get more information.

I think we can say that subscription based model is "officially dead".

Not so much dead as currently full. No one wants to shell out for more than one MMO a month, and millions of people, a huge chunk of the MMO market, are still paying for WoW.

A shitty MMO or an MMO designed to keep people playing for only a month or two before they run out of things to do will never be able to charge a monthly fee and expect runaway success. But if a true WoW successor came along at some point, they could get away with it.

Everyone else will just have to be content with selling aviator sunglasses and boxing gloves in their cash shop.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.
