Instanced copies zones within the world are a terrible, terrible, terrible Idea!!!!
Remember when UO Created Trammel?!? All the PvP screamed it would kill pvp because all the sheep would leave!
And it did....
All the Sheep left the game because now they lived in a world without danger and things that were accomplishments in the game no longer were there was no risk to justify the reward.
The Public Mass's do not know what they want so you dont give it to them.... They want RISK but when given an option to do a quest in a zone with pvp or without they will take the latter everytime!
Instanced zones based off of personal preferences are a horrible idea!!!!
Keep it one big sandbox, where everyone can go pls!!!!

Which is why, if they can't figure out how to do RVR, it will fail like all the other themeparks. [mod edit]
Originally posted by Vannor "Unlocking zones" will definately limit the the idea that this is a 'world'. It was one of the main complaints about Arcania (Gothic 4). Might work well in practice but first impression of that isn't good. Even if we would get mauled by the mobs there, we should still be able to go there.
how will it limit the idea that this is a world???? do you really want to go to a zone at lvl 1 only to get slaughtered by a lvl 50 mob in a second??? how is that fun?? its simple, finish your 1st lvl PVE content and a zone opens up..finish that zone and the third zone opens up....i dont see how that is a bad thing

Will there be quests? Are we an enemy combatant to the citites in that realm? While it still sucks to be locked into a realm just by race choice when it comes to RPing it would at least suck less if the other realms have quests in them to do...
The way it was presented in the article, it sounded to me like it will just be an instanced version of the other realm's zones with only your teammates populating it.
So if you are in Enemy Zone A, you aren't actually in Enemy Zone A, but in Enemy Zone A+(populated by players of your own faction only).
IF that is the case, it changes nothing about the closed off realms bit that pissed so many people off. Still boggles the mind they chose to bring back the one thing that only a couple other games had, all made by the same people on top of it. Its a design few players know about or even want.
Well, I'm just going by the way I interpreted that article. It sounded to me like, after completing your storylines(in your own realm), some new phased version of those zones would become available with continuing quests(again, for your faction only). Someone else may have more knowledge about how that works, I'm just trying to read between the lines.
At any rate, it all screams of phasing and segregation to me. I don't think it means you are going to be running around with the opposing factions in their own zones. So, really, I don't see it as anything having changed much. Hopefully, there'll be some further detail explaining what they meant exactly.......where does it say "your faction only" in another faction zone??? i dont see that written anywhere
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZQXuwt4fP0This video is of a DEV giving a tutorial for ESO taken offscreen by a fan at PAX East 2013. I figured this should get more than 450 hits after that terrible “beta” video that recently came out. Watch this and then tell me that this game is gunna suck and isn’t beautiful. Watch before they take it off. Looks great on 1080P.
Originally posted by Sovrath This just made my day!!! Another new announcement came from the team about exploring the whole world of the game. For a while, it sounded like you could only explore the faction that you had joined at the beginning of the game. So the Ebonhearts would only explore Skyrim and so on. This has now been changed. Players who complete all of the PvE in their zone will now get the chance to unlock another zone at Level 50. Therefore, Ebonheart players can explore the content of the Daggerfall Covenant or the Aldmeri Dominion at Level 50. Once you make the choice the entire zone opens up to your character to explore. Matt did say that the loot you will get in the other zones will be really good, and after finishing the 2nd, you unlock the third. When you unlock the third zone that will give some of the best loot in the game.
Yeah...you have to wait until level 50. Seriously? You think it is cool that a game that is based on TES has restrictions like this in game?
