simple fix to open up the lands of Tamriel to all players.

Just add a PvP switch to allow those people who want to PvP in open world. And they can play the way they enjoy. And the other population of players who just want to pve, they can choose to do so without being harassed.

This isn't rocket science.

    +1 it available in other games and it works fine. Suspec you ma get some excuses shortly why this is a bad idea (in reality it's because some people like to harass other pve players.

    Exactly. It would work perfectly for everyone except the gankers. They will be the only naysayers.

    Hey!!   I'm a ganker but I approve this,  I support OP 100%

    Afterall, ganking doesn't give anything besides some "fun" for my evil alter ego. I can live without that and go for PvP in the specific pvp zone. Besides, I can go gank in another game if I want to.

     

    What is most important here is that one should be able to explore the entire Tamriel with your main character. And for example take your friends across the land to check out that dungeon on the other side of the world for example. Being forced to roll an alternative character on the opposing factions just to be able to see the world is just wrong.

     

    So, remove the possibility to be able to gank lowerlevels but give us acces to the world and the other dungeons.

    They did exactly that in DAoC as well. Had a straight PvP server where all the content was unlocked for all players and a straight PVE server that did the same thing. So who knows? They might just do that.

    Here's why they don't won't to do it.

    If they force you to reroll to see all of the realm, you'll be forced to pay them money for a longer period of time.

    Simple really.

    Or if you go into a different area other than your own you suffer a huge debuff and can be looted.. I like that better. It would make going into other lands nerve racking.

    I played daoc since beta and to be honest I dont think you could "unflag" yourself in Mordred.

    But... I dont really remember that well...

    How about no.

    I did battle with ignorance today, and ignorance won.

    To exercise power costs effort and demands courage. That is why so many fail to assert rights to which they are perfectly entitled - because a right is a kind of power but they are too lazy or too cowardly to exercise it. The virtues which cloak these faults are called patience and forbearance.

    People find anything and everthing to complain about. Maybe I want to enjoy rerolling a character and not have to fun through the same starting areas over and over again. People complained about there being only one path in RIFT non stop. 

     

    Face it. No matter what Zenimax does with TESO people will be bitching

    Of course, its called nerd rage. And its been a constant. when zork was rubbing two sticks to make a fire, zook was over his shoulder bitching he was, "doing it wrong". Hence the term : "Flame wars". Google it.

    Zork wouldn't be rubbing two stick together because he had the Battery Powered Brass Lantern or the Frotz spell which would provide light......

    You mean like the awesome ideas of the op? Whether this particular choice is good or bad has yet to be determined, and the sheer amount of bitching over it is absurd.

    honestly, at this point I'd be all for it. I'd rather have that then 3 distinct lands where I have to roll 3 distinct characters.

    That is correct except it was not light Zork was after, it was heat. And neither the lantern nor the spell could provide that.

    i like the factions so i would say no myself but i played DAOC for years and loved the lore and realm pride that came from fighting for your realm. People will bitch and moan about this not being DAOC 2 which is fine , everyone has their own opinion but ill stick to realm pride and factions as they make fighting in pvp feel more like a realm and not just a circle jerk gank fest of flipping zones.

    I'm HOPING for 3 distinct lands where you can only choose 1 land per server to avoid those people that want to logoff during PvP and join the winning side during a battle. You pick one realm per server and should not be able to switch!

    i feel the exact same way as you but I think that the mega server tech is just one big server . If thats the case and not any realms on it I think they will have a huge issue with cross realmers like WAR had.

  • sapphensapphen Madison, NCPosts: 911Member Common

    I think this would be a great solution.  In addition I would like to see two different flag systems; a Faction wPvP flag and a FFA wPvP flag.

    It's almost funny to see DAoC fans fighting for features in a ESO game.  The developers made it plain and clear that this game was meant for them more than TES fans.  I think they are in a rude awaking when the slient majority becomes vocal.

    Naw, but I vainly hope that if I keep pissing into the ocean of piss someone will wake up and realize what it is they are swimming in.

    Damnit! I forgot about the megaserver. In that case, I have no idea what they are going to do. The OP has the right idea, they should open more servers to satisfy everybody. PvP, PvE and Normal servers.

    Looks like to me that you are willingly swimming in an ocean of piss.  No one forces you to join these conversations, it may be better for you to find a topic that you agree with than keep swimming with us.
