Hey guys, my name is Scott, and I'm addicted to gaming. I also suffer from chronic boredom.

I'm a 28 year old American living in South Korea and currently finishing up my bachelor's degree.

My MMO virginity was forcefully taken from me by a vile game called Lineage 2. It was quite an eyeopener
with open PK and exp loss death penalties. Since then, I've been searching for the thrill of PvP ever since. I've played WoW upto BC; Warhammer for a month or so; Korean Aion for about 6 months, and Korean TERA for about one year. I played GW1 on the side while I was tortured relentlessly by Lineage 2, but never really got into it. When I played the GW2 demo at one of the game conventions here, I knew that I finally found what I was looking for.

To pass the time until headstart, I've been playing Path of Exile(what D3 should have been).

Besides gaming, I have a fascination with all things steampunk, and reading. One of my favorite books is the Gnashlycrumb tinies. It's worth a look, if you enjoy a little black humor.

Anyo' Haseyou Death?

Welcome to Twelve.

I went to South Korea in '06 and loved it. Seoul is a magical city indeed. Their internet is amazing!

So I have some more questions for you:

i) Are you good at Starcraft 2? What is your APM?
ii) What is the hottest thing in Seoul right now?
iii) How hot are Castanic babes in TERA? Can I have pictures to drool over?
iv) Why hasn't North Korea invaded you guys yet?
v) What are you studying? Is it a Masters in Zergling Mind Control?
vi) Who is your favourite Girls Generation (SNSD) girl?

Since the game won't be out for a month's time, I encourage you to mingle around and meet with the rest of our fantabulous Twelve community across the other forum subsections.

Welcome to twelve! I'm new too :D

I am jealous! I love Korean MMOs and wish I could play them before their Western adaption.

Steampunk is awesome, I wish there was more around and who doesn't like a bit of black humour?

i) I am horrid at SC2. I think my APM is like 30.
ii) The hottest thing in Seoul is Suzy Bae. She is a singer, and an actress. She was ranked #1 as the most beautiful face.

iv) Tree bark, unfortunately, does not contain the proper amount of nutrients to sustain an army.
v) I'm majoring in Business Administration. UCBerkeley offers SC classes, though.
vi) If I had to choose one, it would be taeyeon. On the other hand, my three favorite are:

My main in Tera was a Castanic Berserker but I spent the $25 and race changed her to Elin around level 40. It was the butt flap that did it for me, I have no idea why they love the butt flap. Also, I loved the leaning over run thing, but her hips would jab from side to side in a way that gravity would not let continue and result in a humourous event.

Beautiful armour and weapons but sadly, they were all basically the same.

Why so many butt flaps?!

I laso played an Elin, but my class was mystic. I was fun until the dungeons required quick reading skills to survive boss attacks. Can't read in korean so good. ㅠㅠ I can't understand the butt flap thing either, but I think the majority of Korean guys I played with were in love with Castanic females. lol

Mystic was my class and still my favourite but she was so boring to solo and it seems (at least in the West) everyone played Priest or Mystic so healers weren't in any demand.

I think Tera would have been nice before the west destroyed it. I hated the censorship and crap the Elin got. I didn't like how people over here jumped up and down and called people pedo-bear that play it and talk about how disturbed Korean must be to make such a race. Personally, I think it is more a reflection on the West how they took the Elin than the East for making them that way.

I can see the Korean thing being rough :P I stopped after I realised the end game dungeons were not lag friendly and playing with my American guild, I felt like I was pulling them down.

I don't even think its the west. Only Americans. As a people, we are very prudish. Excessive violence is allowed, but if there is even a nipple slip, by god, that will be censored up and down until there's nothing left except a few screens.

I don't know what patch TERA is upto but there is one end game boss that requires 2 seconds to either move really close or really far away. Could never figure out which because the warning only appeared for half a second.

End game in TERA is soo intense and drops are near non existant. feels like D3.
