    It's funny, but I do feel it to some extent.  After the last Beta weekend I just have no interest in the game that I am currently playing anymore.  I think ESO is finally going to cut that 9 year umbilical cord I have to EQ2.

    Nothing can ever meet overly high expectations, better to reign them in a bit.

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    I had been playing LOTRO some Rift and some GW2 prior to getting in on the beta... I just can't seem to log-in to them any more... Skyrim is about the only RPG I can play at the moment.

    Not for me. The beta actually made me re sub DAOC. Now that's some real RvR.

    I was very happy playing a couple games, and then I logged into ESO for the last beta weekend. I couldn't get enough of it, and I am so hooked.

     

    I've tried playing those games I was happily playing before, but they just don't cut it anymore. I log into the games for a couple minutes, stare at the screen, and log back out. They just don't compare.

    The release date had better come soon because I really can't find anything to fill my gaming void right now. I thought ESO was that good. Hopefully my infatuation with the game will last for many months down the road. I haven't been this addicted to a game for a very long time.

    This is quite a face palm for those predicting ESO to fail . God damn this internet freedom of speech.

    No facepalm here.  I still anticipate B2P in 12-18 months.

    Great 12 years later, actually.

    Since SWTOR I've tried to be hesitantly optimistic about unreleased games. ESO has me pretty jazzed, though. More than I would have expected after my first couple of beta weekends.

    Usually when NDA releases there's a ton of backlash. It happened with AoC and SWTOR.

    With the NDA gone on ESO their ratings have actually improved. This could be because the hype was less than the other ones in the first place, but a good sign nonetheless.

    To put the context of this tread into perspective, many of you are claiming that you played ESO beta and cannot touch your old games now. Well, that's great but a couple years ago, during the GW2 weekend beta event phase, this very forum coined the term "The Guild Wars 2 Effect". It's essentially the exact same thing some of you are saying. After trying the game, during the beta events, players who pre-purchased did not feel like returning to there current MMOs, They just wanted to continue to play GW2. Some, if not many of those "GW2 Effect" sufferers, when questioned, responded with "We've actually played the game, so we know....." Only to turn up 1-2 months later trashing the game, again, because they didn't keep their own expectations in check.

I wonder, how many gamers who "suffered" from the "GW2 Effect" during beta without keeping realistic expectations are still playing GW2.  And yeah, they also said "WE've actually played the game, so we know....." Only to turn up 1-2 months later trashing the game, again, because they didn't keep their own expectations in check.

     

     

    Or put another way, the GW2 effect is not a predictor of the longevity of the game...was anyone claiming it is?

    Actually I had the same thought, only I remember similar things being said about WAR back when the WoW forums were aflame with the whole "WoW stands for Waiting on Warhammer!" thing.

    GW2 has been the highest rated game on mmorpg.com for a while. A lot of people are probably still playing it religiously or on-and-off.

    I think the type that goes in and out of a game to later trash it in very short order are akin to the content locust.  Nothing will ever satisfy those people.

     

    From reading the thread so far, and measuring my own expectations, I certainly don't see any evidence of these unrealistic expectations that you kindly ask us to keep in check.  Rather, I see people that enjoyed what they saw and experienced and are interested in that product.  No hysteria here.  But, please, keep trying to doom and gloom.

    BLARG!  I WANT BACK IN!  Only thing I can play is 7 Days to Die because most other games feel like the ghost of Christmas past.

    Hahaha...same. Launching SWTOR (20+ days of my subscription left)...log off after 20 minutes. Launching GW2...there is so much to do..what will I do...errr...maybe...um.../age 2493h...log off. Same with AoC and LOTRO.

    Hell, watching ESO beta vids and reading related articles is more fun at the moment :P

    Damn you, hype.

    History is repeating. The responses were the same then too.

    The fact that you are calling what should be considered common sense advice, "doom and gloom" is telling indeed.

    That's where I am. I tried to re-subscribe to WoW and cancelled two days later. I've been dividing my time between Rift, Neverwinter Online and GW2. I'm in the game world all of 20-30 minutes and get so itchy. I'm restless. I simply need my 'serious' title. I'm having withdraws from the past two beta weekends. Wickedly tempted to try Gloria Victis until I get to play ESO again (I preordered the boxed Imperial Edition)!
