'TERA: The Exiled Realm of Arborea' Integrating Automated Community Management Tools

TERA is an MMORPG where you battle epic wars, protect your kingdom from demise, and brings you thrills never experienced before in traditional MMOs with its action-filled gameplay and riveting visuals.

TERA raises the bar, setting new standards in the gaming industry. It is a visually stunning world with graphic quality above all other games in the industry. You will experience a new ground-breaking gameplay system where stereotypes of traditional MMORPGs will be broken. You will have full control over the attacks and the fate of your enemy. No more "pointing and clicking" and playing combat relay with the enemies. Furthermore, not only do you control the action, TERA is also set in a world where the players will dictate the flow of the economy and individually impact the community environment.

The Crisp Platform tackles threats including gold farming, spam bots, griefing, power levelling and phishing attacks by detecting irregular in-game behaviour; patterns within online chat and social graph activity in real time. It detects bad behaviour and monitors trading activity in real time; automatically deals with low-level behaviour in accordance with rules set by moderators; and prioritises and escalates more severe problems to moderation teams.

Seattle-based En Masse is the latest in a long line of global companies to integrate the Crisp Platform to manage and moderate all online content within private online communities, MMOs, Virtual Worlds and public Social Media. Operating in more than 10 languages, the Crisp Platform is the only automated, real-time technology available that uses a combination of machine learning heuristics, concept analysis, filtering technology and reputation analysis – stopping threats to online game economies, keeping brands safe and enhancing the experience for players.

“We chose the Crisp Thinking Platform because it really is the very best available. In testing we’ve been extremely impressed with its performance. The Crisp Platform automates many of the functions of human moderators, which allows our live team to spend their time moderating serious issues and helping players,” said Patrick Wyatt, Chief Operating Officer, En Masse Entertainment. “MMOs are judged by how well they deliver a compelling gameplay experience. A crucial element is how well they respond to and deal with anti-social behaviour and threats such as gold farming, griefing and spamming – unchecked, these threats can destroy even the most popular online games. The Crisp Thinking Platform is one of the key components we’ll be using to keep the TERA game environment safe and fun for our players.

In TERA, players master their destiny in a richly detailed game world with a pioneering dynamic combat system. Individual player actions can transform the balance of power in a world where old rivalries are erased, and disparate races must form a common federation to stave off destruction by marauding monsters and warring gods.

You become part of the realm of Arborea, created by the Ancient Gods. You defend your race in a fantasy world where your creators, descendents of the Ancient Gods, have warred upon each other centuries ago. Join forces and become part of a vast world in constant conflict, where new battles and weaponry skills will leave you grasping for more as you become immersed in the realm of Arborea. Take charge and become the hero the world seeks!
