    Have played: You name it
    If you mention rose tinted glasses, you better be referring to Mitch Hedberg.

    Pros, Elder scrolls lore, graphics

     

    Cons, developers have no idea how to use the lore, heavily instanced, class based instead of skill based, themepark BS, subs will be up first couple monthes, then majority of players will leave except those who like themeparks and easy mode

    Yeah i mean thats what happends to all the WoW clones but this game has alot of potential and im kinda excited for beta. after my favorite game of all time died a horrible death (darkfall 1.0/darkfall online) and the new game darkfall unholywars sucked balls i kinda have to try and find something that might interest me and ES games are epic and ESO might be aswell! i just hope there is some fun PvP either super competetive like WoW arena so you can get better nad see rank and so on.. or really good raiding.

    If ESO for reason changed up there whole game, keeping the combat (fps style) from previes ES games, kept the epic quests, and kept a skill based system ( like previous ES games ), made it entirely open world, with out silly copies, and maybe focused more community enchancing things, unlike Facebook integration which is just silly, it might have a chance, but no developer in his right mind would do that how far they've come with there crap, they gonna release and make whatever money they can back and call it done.

    yeah the worst thing for me since i love ES games and darkfall 1.0 i really would have liked to see combat being like in ES i know melee will be like that. but you will have targets for spells and archery.

    Factional segregation is a BIG negative. They should have realised this at the concept stage instead of trying to jam DAoC into Elder Scrolls.

    yeah, i mean i would be OK if you started in 1 of the alliances but could switch sides if u wanted to.. you have always been able to do what you wanted in ES games i know this is an mmo so its not hte same but still.. but maybe that will come in the future.

     

    but also its good because this balances the population of the alliances i think..

    anyway what races are you going to pick? im going kahjit! worst alliance tho but think i will still stick with them :)
