    both those things have been in the elder scrolls since morrowind whioney dumwhine sauce

    Nope, that style of gaming has not been part of the EScrolls world.

    Eh, read an article on it and quite honestly it sounds like every other MMO. Well cept the whole voting an emperor from the playerbase thing. Hope it fullfills the desires of some but I'm thinking I may have to pass. But who knows. Still seems some time off.

    As for the one who asked release year it was said 2013.

    JK... awesome sandbox mechanic  image

    Yay 99.9 perceont of people who play the game will never experience this mechanic. So lets waste millions of dollars in development for something that 200 people will only enjoy.  

     

    No, everyone can experience this mechanic... as long as they fulfil their civic duties and vote. You see, the fact that I'm not the all-mighty world savior does not stop me from enjoying it. But to each his/her own, I can undersand this feature has no meaning if you aren't looking for a sandbox type of game.

     

    By the way, I don't think this mechanic costs millons, voice-overs does... but as I said, people are entitled to their own tastes or opinions  image

    I could live with it if it supports the option of 1st or 3rd person view...but if it doesn't at least support the option of playing in 1st person, that would be an absolute deal-breaker for me... definately would move it into the "no buy" category as far as I'm concerned.

    The lore makes it Elder Scrolls. Thats about it, unfortunately.

    I sit on a man's back, choking him and making him carry me, and yet assure myself and others that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his lot by all possible means - except by getting off his back.

    There's no place for an Elder Scrolls MMO in the current cookie cutter regime of mmo designs. Given the pre information is anywhere close to correct, I would suggest a total boycott of this obvious scam.

    tab targetting by itself is almost enough to consider this a horrible waste of a franchise.  Many players are clamoring for an open real time combat with no persistent targets, and elder scrolls has always done it that way, and now they will change it?  Just so it can be like every other MMO?  pathetic.

  • DesalusDesalus Burnsville, MNPosts: 848Member

    Everything that one would expect an Elder Scrolls MMO to be, this is not. Such a dissapointment. I was expecting a well polished and content rich Mortal Online and they give us another cookie-cutter mmorpg that does little to innovate the genre. Why should players even be excited for this game?

    I was going to post some facetious trolling, mocking the haters for discounting this one before primary development begin. But, really, there's no more room to go over top.  That's space is already fully occupied.  

    Guess I'll have to settle for some meta-trolling

    Wheres everyone getting this info about player emporers and classes from?

  • scottnsscottns ., MAPosts: 231Member Uncommon

    You know what's really going to suck?  We'll probably never get another single player Elderscolls game now...Never.  At least they went out with a bang with Skyrim.

    Agreed.

    But now let's all pray there never will be a Fallout mmo.

    @ DannyGlover

    Well said, the lore alone is what makes it an Elder scroll game... seeing as this is set before the events of the last 3 games in the series, first person isn't neededy.

    What I like is them not claiming it the next evolution or innovation for mmo..
  • pb1285npb1285n Brentwood, NYPosts: 505Member
    They are going for a hubless quest system. NPCs will point you in the direction of certain quests but any quest can be gained while out adventuring. One example was clearing out a cave of vampires will give you a reward and open up a quest chain.

    Their is no aggro mechanic and stamina and a block mechanic are important for survival.

    Their are three PvP factions.

    It is being developed by a different studio from the SP game and shouldn't affect the series in any way.

    So you posted a non-english trailer on an english speaking site not to mention that the wording is all in english.... wtf

  • dubyahitedubyahite Lincoln, NEPosts: 2,483Member
    Rage on guys. Rage on.

    Some of these mechanics sound really cool to me:

    Hubless questing
    Open world dungeons
    3 faction open world PvP with politics
    Exploration being integral to questing
    Limited skill bar (Diablo or GW 2 style pick your skills)



    I think I'll wait and see what the actual game is like instead of freaking the crap out from just the announcement.

    This game has a seemingly lot of cool things going for it. How it all works out is anyone's guess. It's a bit early to call it a wow clone.


    In fact, this games features remind me of GW 2 more than anythin, and you all love to prattle on about how GW 2 is changing the universe forever and is so unique and creative!

    Honestly, TESO reminds me of GW 2 more than wow.
