I am outraged at the "Play an Imperial on either Faction" CE Bonus!!

sludgebeardsludgebeard Tampa, FLPosts: 532Member Uncommon

This is the worst CE leak ever (And will go down in history as so), I for one ca not believe that Zenimax would stoop this low. Well Ive HAD IT!

 

Not only did they ignore players cries for an imperial race, and for all races - available to - all factions, but now they go and throw both those into one box and chrge you 150 bucks to have it!!

 

That is an outright deception of consumer interests and I will be filing a greviounce with the company first thing tomorrow morning!

 

God is no one else as outraged!?

    You'll feel better tomorrow when they release the official info and it's just an Imperial armor / costume piece.  Granted the picture has poor wording, but it isn't an entirely new race to play.

    Then it would have said "Costume" and not Race.

    You mean kind of like this?  Or have you somehow convinced yourself that Landmark will have this thing but EQNext won't?

    Cool story - choose to stay in a tizzy then.  And it doesn't say race.

    Indeed, at least EQN is transparent about their cash-grab and they give you base access for free.

     

    I ADORE how ZOS was like "MEEEEAH WE WANT SUBS SO WE DON"T HAVE TO PAY-GATE NOTHIN'" oh wait "HERE'S A PAYGATE FOR A WHOLE RACE MEEEEEAH"

  • CazNeergCazNeerg Puyallup, WAPosts: 2,198Member

    It seems extremely clear from the graphic that it is a race, not a costume.  If it is a costume, somebody needs to get fired, because it doesn't read that way.

    That said, I am outraged by your outrage.  People who pay more should get more, always.  Outrage over a collector's edition having stuff the base game doesn't is no different than outrage from free players in a hybrid game that they have to pay something to have an experience as good as a subscriber.

    Through power, I gain victory.

    Outraged!? for a little over a 100 bucks?

    it's not like they're asking for thousands to own a house like OTHER games.

    Outrageous.  This game has an 80% chance of short sub anyway.  Why care what race someone plays for 2 months?

    Yeah, you're right. It's not official. But based on the graphic that was accidentally leaked it appears to be true. We'll probably see tomorrow or the next day for sure whether it's true.

    How?  It's a picture of armor - and it doesn't say race anywhere like people are posting.  "play as an Imperial in any alliance" with a picture of Imperial armor.

    Another nail in a long line of nails that is going to sink this title.

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    @OP. Can we please have source for this... claim? I want pictures, I want links, I want the official source, if possible. I mean, that should be just common courtesy, when you start a thread about something.

     

    PS. Oh, now I get it! This is all just speculation concerning a leak, right?

    We?re all dead, just say it.

    How?  It's a picture of armor - and it doesn't say race anywhere like people are posting.  "play as an Imperial in any alliance" with a picture of Imperial armor.

    It says play as an Imperial.  In the Elder Scrolls, Imperial is the name of a race.  Which happens to be the only race not already assigned to one of the factions which is normally present in ES games, and a race people have been clamoring for the chance to play since the game was announced.  

    It didn't say "Play wearing Imperial armor."  Could it theoretically mean that, if the person who made the graphic is a drooling incompetent?  Sure, but if it does, some heads need to roll, because that isn't the logical interpretation.
