Which am I more excited about? Archeage.
While not a 100% fit for what I'm looking for in an MMORPG, it's closer than TESO.

Perhaps you are, because im sure most of those that are sad are more sad over TES NOT being a sandbox like it should be than being sad that an Asian game that is, has a larger following here.
Played: AA, AC1, AC2, Aion, AO, AoC, CO, CoX, DAoC, DCUO, DN, EVE, EQ1, EQ2, ESO, FE, FFXI, FFXIV, FF, GW1, GW2, Istaria, L2, LoTRO, MO, MxO, NW, Rift, RoE,Ryzom, SB, SWG, SWTOR, TERA, TSW, WAR, WoW, WURM...
Originally posted by ShakyMo Similarities between daoc and tes series Player housing Even more open world (towns and stuff don't have load screens) Crafting is very important Darkish fantasy setting Can kill anyone (on ffa server) Real archery with trajectories Has quests but not hub style questing Dungeons you just wander into, rather than make group and teleport there (daoc dungeons are not instanced) Just getting annoyed with noobs that never played thinking daoc is like bloody wow or something.
It gets old, that's for sure. I so wish people would stop comparing Daoc to today's mmo's.

Thats funny because I just so happen to have a Skyrim mod that has a Pirate ship and adds pirate clothing...but I do thank you for looking for "pirate ships" as a way to say TESO is closer to TES than AA...seeing as how there is no information about pirates or ships being in TESO yet.

Originally posted by ShakyMo Pyrate Daoc is entirely open world, there's absolutely no instances in the entire game.
Can any 1 of the 3 sides enter the other factions lands and adventure? NO. They are closed and zoned off.
Not an OPEN world.
I am not going to even try to explain if further. You will never get it.

Originally posted by ShakyMo Thing is tes series isn't a sandbox. Skyrim apart it has classes It has levels It has gated content skyrim with hearthfire apart you can't build your own house It has a ton of quests, many of which need to be done in a linear order (e.g to get to next stage in a guild story line) It has a "you are the hero" setup Tes is a hybrid / open workday themepark with sandbox elements It has more in common with games like ac, daoc and EQ than it does games like eve & uo. Sure its not like wow style themeparks either though.
1. Skyrim does not have classes, it has skills you can level and you can do them all.
2. Levels raised by using SKILLS, you dont get XP for quests, or kills.
3. TES games do NOT have gated content. Its 100% open outside the main story.
4. Housing has nothing to do with sandbox, there are themepark games with housing.
5. A game can be a sandbox and still have a storyline as long as doing that story is not level based. which it isnt.
6. Not sandbox based.
Thank you, please try again with at least one example that fits what you are saying.
My vote goes to ArchAge. While the combat is garbage the rest is simply what i want from an MMO. Conflict driven gameplay about ressources and TON's of possibilities to shape the world.
I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall.

1- Only 2 servers out of how many?
2- 2 exceptions that didnt get implemented until 3-4 years after release
3- You are using the exceptions to try and make your point?
4- TESO will not have those exceptions in place
Can we just drop this now? You seem headstrong in disagreeing no matter what.
This also is Off Topic and has nothing to do with the point of the OP

The Elder Scrolls Online
Richer lore and a stronger community, the armour sets and no classes with a huge combination of spells and playstyles and the beautiful world and landscapes of elder scrolls.
That is pretty much what makes me want to play. Hopefully the crafting and PvP and PvE content is great!
Originally posted by DireLion My Vote gos to Both, why? Only thing they have in common is fantasy. Based on all the mmos ive played in the last 13 years its all a wait and see play them both or be left behind game. I plan to play ESO because Im a fan boy, AA because Im a sandbox fan. One draw....Does my computer run it worth playing it? Do I have the patience to flounder through the first few months of bugs? And lastly will Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivruski IV have more fun with my computer then me.
I doubt AA will be that buggy at launch, it's spent a long long time in beta with no NDA.
