    Don't know whether to be excited or herald in the apocalypse. So I am going with both. :)

    !!!

    Let's just hope it will be a tad sandboxy. Dead tired of all the themepark reinventions.

    Finally, tough expected :D

     

    Lead by that DAoC guy so guess that makes many happy.

    OOhh I am so torn between excitement and trepidation. I am an old time elder scrolls follower and have seen the games transform over time into what we have today.  

    I am hopeful that the depth of player choices that were given to us prior to Oblivion will make a comeback, but given the movement in MMORPG's towards a simplier approach, I am hesitant. 

    But I will continue to maintain my hopeful optimism :)

    That right there squashes my hype :( 

    Yep. replace "The Elder Scrolls" with "Star Wars" and it sounds just like what the arrogant, egotistical clowns at Bioware/EA said about SWTOR.

     

    I also have no faith in anything Matt Frior (aka Mark Jacobs 2.0) says or does.

    except for DAoC.

    For some reason, now when i hear about a Dev company that is known for their SPRPG's, stepping into the mmorpg genre, I throwup a little of the Bioware fail that is TOR. My gut feeling is that a Elder Scrolls mmo will be about the same as TOR even though it is set in a different setting. Until i can be proved wrong, i wouldn't touch this up and coming title with a ten foot pole.

    Elswheyr, not Morrowind? or Summerset Isles...errr...ok or even Hammerfell? That is......random

    Any mmo worth its salt should be like a good prostitute when it comes to its game world- One hell of a faker, and a damn good shaker!

    Didn't most people say that about BW before SWTOR?image

    Umm. I still dont understand why everyone hails DAOC as this great game. It was EQs retarded little brother.

    Mythic botched that game every chance they got.

    Release was shallow. Areas were removed for future expansions (Avalon). Dungeons werent itemized until weeks after release, Open World MoBs were the same static 3-5 we still see today.

    They broke so many things with every patch

    Their NERFS were extreme to say the least. They couldnt balance a plate on the floor

    RvR was the only thing that was halfway good, but they didnt have doors on keeps for the longest time and it was a lag filled CC-/Mez/Root/Stun = DIE FEST

    Darkness Falls sucked

     

    DAOC was crap and Matt Frior was a major contributor to its suckiness

    Tried: EQ2 - AC - EU - HZ - TR - MxO - TTO - WURM - SL - VG:SoH - PotBS - PS - AoC - WAR - DDO - SWTOR
    Played: UO - EQ1 - AO - DAoC - NC - CoH/CoV - SWG - WoW - EVE - AA - LotRO - DFO - STO - FE - MO - RIFT
    Playing: Skyrim

    Well the cries for an Elder Scrolls MMO have been answered, I wonder how long this has been in the works.

    Either way its great news and I look forward to more :)

    Well, it's theirs to screw up.

     

    We'll see..

    Swtor definately has everyone cautious, they better make an awesome game that wows in beta or they will not even get the box sales Swtor did.

    Where Bioware was known for their "Typical Bioware storytelling" (trademark symbol), The Elder Scrolls, Bethsoft and Zeni, are known for their good grasp of immersive, open world, single player, sandboxy games. It isn't hard to see that this fits my (and many other people's) mmorpg gloves a whole lot more.

    Arggg.... I love the elder scroll series but why do they need to make it into  an MMO? Its so successfull now how it is.

    Enter a whole new realm of challenge and adventure.

  • VocadiVocadi SH, MIPosts: 205Member

    As an aside, its interesting how adament Bethesda has previously been against a multiplayer option in their games. I recall phrasing such as "will never happen" and "single player focused" being used frequently.  But I refuse to be a pessimist.

    I'm not even going to argue with you, go back to what ever E-sport you play, you will be better there.

    ESO has potential, just not for you.
