The next-gen online game TERA from Korea-based NHN has recently held a new event, where players can enter and enjoy the game in net cafes and obtain practical items. This did cause much dissatisfaction. Many players didn't care about it and were inclined to play the game at home, since the so-called "practical items" could all be bought in the game.
But some were very angry, and insisted that the event was an immoral act, which's just an instrument that NHN used to entice players to play the game in net cafes and thus raise the Tera online Gold game's rank.
On our site, a player even detailedly listed the 16 events that Tera Gold had held since its OBT three months ago, claiming that NHN only valued the game rank instead of players' feelings. According to another player, NHN always wishes to encourage players to play in net cafes by means of rewards in an effort to push their games to a higher rank, but players are now smarter and might stay at home playing games, instead of wasting time and money in playing the games with unsatisfactory content in net cafes.
