TESO was going to be a bold and original MMO, but then it took an arrow to the knee :-(

What's a shame. Might as well be called Everquest 3: The Elder Scrolls Saga.

    TESO needs to be a sandbox and action MMO. Otherwise it will fail.

    I hope that they drive off the generic mmo mold, I guess we'll wait and see.

    At least I'm trying to provide information and not being rude.

    $100 that you can on camera...$100k that you can't without a camera.

    Same as the article. Bunch of words without ever seeing the game or playing it. Stick that in your jock

    Translation:

    I don't like sandbox games, I only play what's popular. If I can't see an active Twitch.tv stream with 4000+ viewers it's probably not the game for me. In fact, I might even preorder this, ooh. Maybe they'll give me beta access. Star Wars Galaxies was an unsucessful Sandbox game due to the fact that the developers tried to copy WoW with an update and killed the core playerbase, totally irrelevant to our conversation, I know. Anyway, I don't know much about MMORPGs and I can't spell very well either, later.

    Currently playing - FF14ARR
    Previous games - SWG, World of Warcraft, ShadowBane, Warhammer, Age of Conan, Darkfall, Planetside Asheron's Call, Everquest, Everquest 2, Too many.

    Why are you translating him? he is not the one complaining that TESO isn't a sandbox. Even though childish i agree with what he is trying to say. Stop whinning, TESO is not a sandbox MMO..move on?

    /shrug unless all "leaks" are false ESO is one big fail. they migh as well stop developing and save any money they still can. *sadface*

    I just don't understand what the heck relation THIS game has to the Elder Scroll series besides the brand name and the skins?

    From my perspective they might as well have just called it "Generic Fantasy Themed MMO with names that sound kinda familiar to you."

    That's a waste of a well established IP....and frankly seems like a cheap attempt to cash in existing Brand Recognition.

    And yet you'll still pay them, and complain that the genre sucks a year down the road.

    what makes me laugh even more is when they call it a wow clone or the next swtor.  If thats the case then GW2 is a frikin wow clone too.

    Things we know are in TESO that are also features of GW2

    large scale 3 sided pvp - only TESO uses the whole of cyrodil for it out in the actual world with non of this anominity and 2 week rotation crap

    no holy trinity

    no agro mechanics

    no quest hubs

    skills that switch depending on weapeon equiped

    free picking of other skills on your toolbar from a larger pool

    active block in TESO, active dodge in GW2

     

    Things TESO has on top of GW2

    World raid bosses

    Open non instanced dungeons

    Hopefully TES crafting (or if not UO or DAOC crafting) instead of your typical wow crafting used by GW2

    Thing is I don't even think this is an issue of my game is better than yours like it is most of the time. As a TES fan I'm a little irritated that ESO seems to have gutted everything I liked about the games (IF any of the information is correct). I'm not bothered that it's not sandbox because as I have said many times in many threads, none of the ES games are sandbox.

    True that!!! 100x amen to that!!!

    I was really hoping that Bethesda's admiration for Minecraft might have encouraged them to take a new look at how their sandbox franchise could become a bold new multiplayer game... Instead, they tell us they want make a new World of Warcraft game.

    This sucks so hard!

    Not to my knowledge.  However, you and I both know that here, what's perceived often isn't what was intended, so I didn't want to act on an assumption.  I don't relish the taste of foot in my mouth.  Happens enough as it is.

    The TES world is it's lore, the single-player game-play in itself really doesn't translate into an MMO well, that much is obvious. We can't go kill key story characters in an MMO as one example. Having every item tied to a physics engine is another, this list could be quite long as to what would cause problems in a TES MMO.

    Does barring some or even a lot of these freedoms mean TES could not make a good MMO? I don't think it does. Based on a withstanding IP doesn't mean they can't try something else, yet make a cohersive entry into the framework laid by it's SP brethren.

    I'm far more worried about decent PVP options being available in the MMO space than I am whether TES is like it's SP counterparts. What do we have now to play? Not much, and one option down the road (GW2) doesn't make that better.

    Fans of the series expect that it would at least make some ATTEMPT to capture the Spirit/Feel of the series it's based on.... I'm sorry they didn't make DAOC2 for you....that would have probably been a better IP for what they have been describing here..... but you can't blame fans for being PO'd when they essentialy say...we're going to take all the hallmarks that made TES what they are, throw them out the window and slap a TES label on this game that's completely different.

    Frankly, this game sounds to me like TOW with TES skins added in and RvRvR PvP.
