A handful of TERA European subscribers are quite angry about blood in TERA and they have launched an online petition to complain about the lack thereof in the European version of the massively multiplayer online fantasy RPG world from Frogster.
The petitioners are upset that Frogster decided to cut down the amount of blood that appears in the European version of the game, though – as The Escapist points out – they don't seem to be upset at the other features omitted from the European release like adjustments to the game's classes, the leveling system and more.
A lot of this has to do with the rating the game received in Europe, and not some strange conspiracy by Frogster to keep gory sights from the fragile eyes of MMO players. In the United States the game has a rating of "M" for "Mature by the ESRB, but in Europe the game carries a PEGI rating of 12+. This low rating has a lot more to do with the lack of blood than anything else…
Even armed with those facts, around 700 people have signed the petition. To get a general gist of its message to Frogster, we offer the following excerpt:
"We, as members of the Tera community, feel that this time you have crossed the line," reads the petition's statement, which is titled "Bring Blood Back to Tera EU!". "The community was patient for a very, very long time with your incompetence and childish games. You have played with the boundries [sic] of how much the community can take. Count in all the false information that was given to us."
