Poll - which type of player

TuktzTuktz Atlanta, GAPosts: 299Member

I know this might be oversimplifying, but I'm kind of curious if you had to pick one category of these two, which you would put yourself in?

 

Not sure what that tells me, other than the composition of upcoming players from this forum. Doesn't necessearily equate to the grander population of TESO at large later either.

    I'm going to try this game because I love the Elder Scrolls games that I have played, but I haven't played all of them (or even most of them).

    However, I really dislike the direction fantasy MMO games are heading with action combat, real aiming, and other twitch gaming mechanics. When I'm in the mood for twitch gaming, I'll load up Arkham City or Sleeping Dogs on the XBox.

    MMO player here. I didnt play enough Morrowind and Oblivion to say how good they were. But i love Skyrim and im waiting to see how similar to Skyrim TESO will be feature-wise. It its closer to Skyrim than to a generic mmo then im in. If its closer to any other mmo rather than Skyrim then im out. I can play any other mmo if i want generic stuff. I cant wait for this game to come out but i hope they make it as TES as posible and as far from generic mmo as possible.

    Neither for now. It can change after launch when i see what the game has to offer.

    I would say none of the two options.

    I played most games of the Elder Scrolls series and became a fan of some of the aspects and game mechanics(especially the exploration, freedom of choices, different houses/guilds, mod support) but didn't loved everything about the games(things like the combat and skillsystem were too trivial and too much action based, no real freedom for things like housing unless modded, oblivions rifts were a pain). 

    I'm an mmo player as well. Playing mmo's for something like 10 years now.

     

    The result of both is that i think the ES ip is a great base for a quality mmo but only things like lore, the world and some game ideas(like the guilds) not the ES games in general.  Hard to explain it with just a few words but i was more thinking of something like Vanguard combined witth the ES ip.

    Woul dhave had more precise numbers if you had said just TES player who wants to see what they do with it, and MMO player who wants to see what they do with it.

    There are plenty of TES players who AREN'T excited about this MMO.

    They can't really tick anything.

    Elder scrolls games have always been so fun.  The thing you can't find in an MMO is being able to interact with every little polygon in the game.  If it's there, you can probably grab / move it.  If something's on a shelf, you can take it, but hope the owner isn't watching or you may have a battle on your hands.

    The freedom of the world is so amazing.  I don't think it's going to translate properly into a MMO because it would be a world full of already-murdered npcs and barren shelves, and already cleaned out ruins.

    Somehow, as developers are smarter at developing than me, they will find a way to get it right, I have a lot of confidence that it's going to be fun.  I've not been disappointed by an elder scrolls game before.

    Wouldn't it just be easier to just remove the editorializing from both resonses?

    Thanks, it really does stink to get boxed in and have words put in your mouth. (AKA choose the closest option) lol.

    Agreed.  Neither of those choices apply to me personally.  I just can't get excited about this MMO until I see it, and I remain very skeptical.  I've never been one to rave about sandboxes and complain about every themepark as I believe both styles have merit and some great titles out there, BUT . . . people didn't play a gazillion plus hours in Skyrim because they liked the story.

    To me, "I've played mmos" is rather a given, just from the title of the website ^ we're on.

    But "did you play the original elder scrolls games" is a yes/no, doesn't really require a poll at all?

    I am an Elder Scrolls fan that is excited about playing the game as an MMO.

    I've also played MMO's before.

    Of the three games in the ES series I've played (Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim), Morrowind is my favorite.

    Sounds like we got the perfect storm here as far as potential player base. I pray to Talos that they deliver.

    Wont vote, I dont fit in the options given. My fav RPG of all time is TES. May fav MMO of all time is DAoC. So I am here because of both and cant pick just one.

    I really doubt that TES players who aren't "excited" about a MMO hang around a website called MMORPG...

    Started with bugville Daggerfall, despite the bugs I really loved that game, also loved Morrowind, Oblivion was ok and Skyrim was really good.

    So yeah I'm a Elder Scroll fan.

    If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

  • SiderasSideras HelsingborgPosts: 231Member

    The Elder Scrolls is still The Elder Scrolls, nothing is being turned into anything. It's a spin off on The Elder Scrolls series called Elder Scrolls Online, mixing parts of the Elder Scrolls series aswell as it's lore with an MMO focused on exploration and Realm vs Realm. And I'm excited to see how it all works out.

    Ya you can never take any poll without a grain of salt. Often the poll is bias to the one who made the poll. Or people who have access to it dont reflect the audience as a whole. Still fun on some levels =-)

    I don't like this pool at all since I've been investing many hours into TES singleplayers and MMORPGs. 

     

    Still waiting till some people count themselves to the TESO-crowd instead of seperating between MMORPG- or TES-crowd.

    "An Elder Scrolls fan for years that is excited to see how your favorite IP is turned into an MMO"
