    After reading this my excitement died down real fast. Any chance the above link was a hoax?




     

    Ouch, looks bad. dead on arrival i'd say.

    Here is hoping they can make a perfect MMO RPG like they can make the perfect single player RPG.

    Non instanced dungeons is a known fact so far. :D

    Would like to see something like RvR in ESO like what I saw in DAoC.

    The same skill system in ESO as Skyrim or Morrowind.

    A non class gameplay. This will free up the sandbox even more.

    Sandbox type gameplay is a must if this is to work as a MMO.

    Full loot rights on dead players. I want death to have an impact and meaning not just some horrid repair mechanic.

    Obviously the graphics in the very first article about the game are never going to improve. I bet the events will suck too and the game will probably be 100% themepark with instancing at every turn. The rest of development is going to be spent on large boats, champagne and super models (and VO from washed up performers). We might as well give up now and just throw money into the dumpster.

    Why is everyone so gloomy around here 24/7??? Cheer up a little.

    Enter a whole new realm of challenge and adventure.

    ES, any version, was to me always boring world of nothing. Every few hours some beast. No matter level all mobs equaly hard/easy. Same fighting rat or dragon. Even for that time mechanics of movement of characters .... just bad, like all have ate wooden stick for dinner. Etc. Despite every version was new disappointment, I have keept up with trying new ones. Had enough with Oblivion. Hopefully mmo version would be good, I'm still willing to try.

    Without a doubt this game will be awesome, as long as theres lots of pvp :)

  • Evolution8Evolution8 Lancaster, CAPosts: 128Member

    The game will have Both instanced & Non-instanced Dungeon and Raid dungeons, from the looks of it pvp will be a big part of this game

    I'll be expecting this to be generic and terrible, until I have any reason to think otherwise.

    When I want a single-player story, I'll play a single-player game. When I play an MMO, I want a massively multiplayer world.

    Agree.

    I expect more shoddy work from Bethesda. Level 45 and I beat the main story in Skyrim....the rest is just boring and it still has tons of stability issues. Thanks to the mod community, it's better than what it would be. Still, I don't trust Bethesda anymore after failrim.

    I'd like to get into a beta for this and check it out.  Playing GW2 led me to believe that completely shying away from the familiar isn't always a good idea, so I'll be keeping an eye out for this one.

  • thamighty213thamighty213 NewcastlePosts: 1,630Member

    WOW bill your foresight is truly astounding NOT

     

    Lets face it,  ESO has been the worst kept secret in gaming even worse kept than SWTOR was.

    Bragging about calling it is like bragging that tomorrow will be Saturday.

     

    Either way so long as it has a decent 3rd person mode and the 3 faction rvr lives up to DAOC then it could be worth looking at,  if its 1st person or be gimped garbage like Oblivion, skyrim etc then I'll give it a miss.

    Well, like many, I fell inlove with Skyrim, and at a certain point I felt lonely, with whom can I share all my loot and wonderful swords I've prepared? Who will strategize with me how to slay these foolish bandits sitting there so assured they've won?

     

    But then, oh then, I reminded myself of the horrible chat, the mess of people running around, running around in a forest which inhabitants were friends of mine when I finished the quest, but hey, now they're not. The sensation of futility, no action you take really changes anything, because hey, other people ought to have quests as well, and the same ones...

     

    If it would have kept to a max of 4 people multiplayer inside skyrim, that would have been brilliant, anything more, I say it'll sink faster than a rock...

    Has the potential to be Ultima Online.

  • mefistofelismefistofelis thesalonikiPosts: 14Member

    1)a class system will be in place.

    2)the combat system will not be the same real time combat the Elder Scrolls games are known for.

    3)Players will be unable to contract Vampire and Werewolf diseases, but there will be Vampires and Werewolves in the game

    4)skills will be activated from a hotbar.

    5)Some of the provinces may not be completely available

    6)there are no plans to include a system that allows players to invest in property as they could in the single-player experirience.

    How is this an ES game?I dont think so....

  • AutemOxAutemOx Fullerton, CAPosts: 1,704Member

    Well written article.

    But as far as the title goes...  ESO doesnt mean s#*& for MMORPGs.  Because until proven otherwise it is just going to be another WoW clone.

    3 factions bodes well but what we really need is some confirmation on sandbox gameplay.

    I agree completely.  It would have done better as a co-op game.  Like DIABLO III except with your personal mosaic world and you can invite others to it or fight in others worlds (which then has an effect on that area of your world, a la mosaic).

    Big name, big title and probably will be a big dissapointment too.

    Untill its actually been made and then released i am not going to get hyped up about anything anymore because simply put they have all tended to be extreamly dissapointing release's

  • DignaDigna City, CTPosts: 2,014Member Uncommon

    It's really good news but so far off that it is only going to remain something "I heard was coming'. Once they actually start development and move somewhere with it..cool beans.

     

  • Ashen_XAshen_X PLEASANT HILL, CAPosts: 363Member

    Starting a report off with, "I don't think I'm reaching if I say we have all spent hours of our RPG time in the world of the Elder Scrolls ," is a bad idea. Claiming to speak for everyone pretty much always means that you are wrong...as is the case here.

     

    "Matt Firor, who has been running the studio, was one of the top people on the classic Dark Age of Camelot MMO. He is known as one of the people who conceptualized DAOC’s famous RvR system. This would mean that an Elder Scrolls game in Matt’s hands will produce a very awesome PvP system. "

     

    You should probably have said, "has the potential to produce a very awesome PvP system." Someone who has done something right once previously does not mean that they will be able to recreate the magic of their past achievement in the future.

     

     

    "The crew at Zenimax Online has just jumped to the MMO All-Star list"

     

    How did they become all-stars without having ever produced anything ?

     

     

    When all has been said and done, more will have been said than done.

    This, this, this, this, this.

     

    Honestly this news makes me kind of sad. Also where the damn is my Skyrim DLC? Mods can only hold me for so long.

    Well this is Bethesda's TORtanic/TORcraft, i guess.

     

    IF already streamlined and  uninspired Skyrim did not kill them for me, this will..

     

    Oh well, back to re-playing Morrowind.

    Bethesda isn't making this game, and Skyrim was a fantastic game that only made Bethesda richer.

    Everyone please read up on ESO before spouting nonsense.

  • dariuszpdariuszp PrzeworskPosts: 182Member

    Eeee... it's a 3-rd person themepark with limits on character development, clunky and retarded controls, probably limited and linear world (like in TOR) and trinity system acording to info I get so far.

    What part of this sounds like TES ? :| I see they want to show us another TOR-like failure. Gues what, if someone is willing to pay 15$ then that person will play WoW and not another clone of this game.
