    Sad but true. I *really* loved their CGI trailers. Especially the attack on the Empires assault force.

    But the game itself falls far short of the promise it once had.  Too many bad design decisions, short cuts and being released too soon.  The rest as they say, is history.

    I'm curious, when is the last time anyone actually got into a AAA MMO from a generic beta signup?  It's always a gaming site promo, or a giveaway, or a mass guild invite, etc.  I'm pretty sure they just throw these damn things in the trash.

    Hasn't it been in developemnt for 5 years already with a release date (according to them) of late 2013?

    That's what I thought.  Q4 2013 was their goal.  Which means about Q1/Q2 2014.  My understanding is it got delayed to make it more "Skyrim-like" with combat.

    Can't wait for this one. Hope I get picked. Elder Scrolls is my favorite RPG series,

    Experience demands that man is the only animal which devours his own kind, for I can apply no milder term to the general prey of the rich on the poor.

    Apparently not delayed much if they are asking for signups, most games turnaround from signups to live in under 6 months.

    Meh, After many attempts, I will just give up and let those more fortunate than me play this game. I guess I will stick to single player RPGs and the upcoming Monster Hunters. I seem to get burned out too quickly to play and full MMOs anymore, and getting frustrated at the sign-up process just demonstrated that even more to me.

    Jesus, this is a lot of comments in such a short period of time.  Who ever said this game was flying under the radar on this site, was sorely mistaken.

    let the GW2-ization of this sub forum commence.

    Why bother coming to an mmorpg forum then?

    Wow. That could be the best trailer I´ve EVER seen for a game. Bring me Elder Scrolls The Movie!!! Ohh, and signed up..
  • MetanolMetanol Member Posts: 248 Uncommon

    I have a question. Why didn't they show any orcs, redguard, argonians or khajiit in the trailer?

    Why do "AAA MMORPGs" require 5 minute Cinematic Trailers (SWTOR anyone?)

    Since when have TES elves been "pretty"? Now, instead of staying true to their lore, TES elves look like generic fantasy ala Warhammer elves. Don't get me wrong, of course they are easier on the eyes now, but TES elves were unique fugly, with their unique features.

     

    PS. Full points for the trailer though. Indeed, beautiful CGI, probably the best cinematic trailer so far.

    We?re all dead, just say it.

  • BigAndShinyBigAndShiny LondonMember Posts: 176

    Now, I like SW:TOR.  Heck I think it's a great game.

     

    But I won't deny that those cinematics were hardly 'representative' of final gameplay.  the assassin sliding across the gap between the two towers?  EPIC.  Will the game be anything like that?

     

    Almost definitely not.

    I highly doubt anyone seriously considered this game ever an under the radar.  The IP alone is an enormous attraction to many.  Many, many many will come and see what to become of an Elder Scrolls MMO.  Whether they love it or hate it, they will come.  Won't be suprised if this has the biggest crowd yet compared to other MMOs (GW2, SWTOR).

    This is your current closed beta selection chance rating. Average, plus the captcha made me type a naughty word. Lol.

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    I held up hope till the very end. Once I saw that I was not interested on what was trending since a few years ago (GW2), I should have seen the writting on the wall. Going to wait to give FFXIV one final shot when it gets re-released, but I think I have grown out of love with MMOs in general.

    It's perfectly understandable course of action. If you can't see it, then just give it a few years. If you are just trolling, then: well played sir, you got me.

    Woot can't wait.  This game is going to be epic.

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    Check the teso sub forum.  It was a relatively recent topic/thread (Last  week or so).

    Not working here. Tried 3 times.

    Are they testing us before they let us test the game?

  • Badgered86Badgered86 Denver, COMember Posts: 175 Uncommon
    Damnit.  I was just about done and I accidentally hit CTRL+R (refresh) instead of Windows+R (run dialogue box) and lost it.  Now I can't get back in.  Arg.

    I guess we should all get used to your negativity over the coming months.

     

    Way to judge someone on one post, just because they state having a page fail twice on a beta sign up (and all info lost) is not a great first encounter.

    Just stating the truth, and so be it if that truth is deemed 'negative'.

    Funny how you just picked up on the issue I stated and not the compliment I gave the trailer... must just be what you choose to focus on I guess.

    I bet you any money you'll be on here day after day telling us all how this game is going to suck.

     

    /sigh... OK, whatever, you are obviously just here to troll individuals and not talk about the sign up process, the trailer, or the game.

    Moving on now.

    /sigh.. Another Cinematic.

    Still no actual In-Game footage
