So easily handled?
This is bad

It will certainly be easier to spot people for me to avoid, just like in good old days ;P
I was already mad at them 3 years ago when they announced the game and read their vision.
Now I just don't care anymore, whatever they do is not going to be any worse than my initial disappointment.
I will buy the game, though I am not sure I am going to be playing it after the first month.

I mean common.............just complaining just gives me a headache, wish you would stop, just accept the society you live in, you know, you have food, whats wrong with you all....gosh" May not be applied to a race of people getting thrown in jail, but a concept of complacency and apathy toward any system that pokes and prods your humanity on what can be exploited, in this case Art, is evil........soon your video games will be reduced blinking lights if you let them do it, and trust me they will try
Originally posted by DamonVile I don't play box/subs with cash shops so, not mad, but not going to play either. It will go f2p soon enough.
Same here as I don't play cashshop and will stick with just the box/sub fee for the game.
I mean if I truly wouldn't play a game that might have a subfee, box cost and a cashshop I think there isn't a game anymore that I could play cause almost every MMO/rpg has some form of cashshop or real life cost items players can buy above their box/sub fee.
I just choose not to use cashshop unless a cashshop really prevents me from enjoying the game without using it. Then I just feel the game isn't for me.
I think that Zenimax actually understands giving players something meaningfull for pre-ordering their game. Most pre-order come with fluff stuff that is even out of game, like artbooks, posters, maps, figuriens, which might be fun for certain collectors. But simple isn't what would make me buy a pre-order.
Not saying I will pre-order the game because I will not. But definitly will buy the game that's for sure.
Wondering what kind of uproar we will see when upcoming sandbox games come out F2P with cashshops cause to be honost that is something I truly can not understand how that will work. But of course that's pure speculation cause I have no idea what things will be or not be cashshop related. But just the whole premise of a sandbox game being F2P just doesn't feel right to me.
And pre-orders never really bothered me ever. Even though I never pre-order.
no ,I am not mad,just don't care for ESO, maybe if game surprised me with good pvp ,I 'll play
Nothing wrong with CE & monthly sub
only EVE is real MMO...but I am impressive with TSW

Originally posted by Panther2103 I don't even want to play the race, or use that horse, so I'm not mad. If people want to pay for things like that then they can go ahead and do it. As long as they aren't paying for power than why should I care about it?
Because they are paying for aesthetics. Power is not everything in a game you knnow?I know more people feel this way.

That was pretty funny, although most of the people that get those sparkle ponies from both SoE and Blizzard are from buying it with platinum / gold from other players. Really its just a RMT gateway for players to buy in game currency with real money.
Mixed feelings. Originally I was a definite 'no' for ESO. After the last beta (without getting into NDA stuff) it was a 'probably yes' with the understanding that it would probably be a 4 to 8 week game (for me).
Now with the preorder option I am falling into 'probably no'.
The faction/race locks were a huge central backbone of the game. I didn't think it needed to be but that was the design. Now in what amounts to the 11th hour they effectively take it away by associating it with a means of generating more up front cash.
To me this mean this means:
A) They are really great at customer service, heard the cries of their players and decided to change in favor of the requested 'needs'.
They found their original projected sales flagging so they caved in to offer a feature to hopefully pull back disenchanted potential customers who were upset by the faction lock.
I discount A because the hue and cry was heard long ago. Had they wanted to change positions on faction locks they would have done so long ago.
B I think is a more likely scenario and while I applaud it from a business standpoint (sometimes have to grit your teeth and take it in the gut..or lower) it would seem to point towards the increasingly common scenario of a sub based game going F2P in the short run (12 - 24 months) due to lack of sustainability on the major income stream, subs.
Now I don't mind spending money and Usually play for short periods of time, 1 to 2 months. Then I leave and come back periodically over time. So why am I inclined towards 'no'?
Not 100% sure but I would hazard a guess that after so many years of MMOs (this is my 20th year online gaming) I am starting to burn out on drama. Really not sure. It's one of those things that puzzles me frequently. Doesn't matter, I suppose but for this game the change in race/factions locks has probably taken it off the table for me.
