I know you cant review combat based on vieos, but it looked pretty static..
I know you can block with your right mouse button, but personally i would not mind if they added a dodge mechanisme like in GW2... and make NPC´s a bit more moving. I really love the dynamic combat and the dynamic movement in GW2...

Originally posted by coretex666 Elder Scrolls online has such a great potential. I am afraid it will be wasted in the themepark setting. Now I am most interested in how long it will take from level 1 to the point at which you can no longer make your character stronger. When the meaningful progression ends, the MMORPG ends for me. I am in minority here obviously. The video looks nice. Combat seems to be perfectly sufficient for a MMORPG.
If they keep to their word and keep to their single player RPG's style of questing, I'm having a hard time comparing it to a themepark. You will really not be on rails. If they keep true to their word that is.
However, in my consideration a themepark is to have everything laid out and planned for you, and you just enjoy the ride. Kind of like a linear experience. If your opinion of one is something else, sure, it might be themepark.

There is a dodge mechanism, read the articles. Whether it is as good or as GW2's, or even better, remains to be seen.

Oh what they could have done with this beautiful game, but they won't. Because even they stated, "we are limited."

TES games feel way more 'themeparky' than 'sandboxy', all the rides are there for me to ride.
I recently played Morrowind with overhauled graphics (the modding community did a great job!) and what can i say....
Morrowind (overhauled) graphics. Yup.
Morrowind music. Yup.
Morrowind stiff combat. Yup.
If it's Morrowind online, i guess i might actually give it a try! :P
PS: Good luck playing that lute while wearing those steel gauntlets! Only part of the video that made me laugh.

Aaaaaaaaaand THis is why devs don't release gameplay videos fo their game before public betas and why they put NDA's on betas.
It's all you people here, as soon as you see something that isn't finished you don't even question with reason but instantly write it off as bad, all you people complain to much. Combat doesn't look up to par but that's the reason we are being shown it in a montage type of thing becuase it isn't finished judge the final product.

I respect your opinion.
As I said, from the info I have, I, personally, would classify it as a pure themepark.
You have classic levelling from level 1 to level 50 which, I assume, will be quite quick like in most themeparks released in last years. I would say months at max. The way to max level is not so relevant, in my opinion. If the quests are non linear then you have themepark with non linear quests.
You have pvp limited to a special zone.
You have practically no sand in the game.
For me, it will likely be another MMO game with RPG part which lasts for a month, then you are capped and you can do pvp for fun which is the only reason to do it or run dungeons for gear. At this point, I do not see anything else, anything interesting you can get involved in in this game. Where is the complexity, where is the depth...
At this point, it seems it will be yet another MMO game which turns into a FPS like game in a month or two.
I am not saying its objectively bad. These games are still very popular...look at tera, gw 2, rift, wow,...
Got to agree with others here the game world looks amazing but the combat looks ...Meh!
Combat animations,dynamics and impact all look like pre alpha to me...hope this isn't the state they are going to release combat in the finished product.
That my friends is a 'flyover' video, not a 'gameplay' video.
Saw it a while ago. Just like any other fly over.
Well... it looks nice but we all know graphics don't mean anything (well thats a lie people take value in them, to much at times I honeslty feel) but combat looked.... kind of dreadful from the animations used. I'm sure there is more to it and its hopefully early build but... I couldn't get over it. it really looks quite bad and a bit cringe worthy to me.
My assumption is that its not ready, and they didn't wnat to show actual gameplay as perhaps skills weren't fully developed with the UI that it made it so simply with little going on? Just I don't really get why they even showed it so long, that part bothers me when it looks apparent its not either fully done or they just are content with it being the way it is now, which I hope not.
Thanks for the video.

Originally posted by khartokhar3combat looks realy slow and undynamic. hope it will be better when it releases. otherwise it will be a disappointment to me.
hope it will be changed too
try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.Worst surprises for me: Aion, GW2
These are bad but SW:TOR alpha animations were way, way worse
I will take this as if it was alpha content (no clues to proof this or disproof)
I hate these fly-over tho, most of the times PR uses them wrong, these are to show environment and world, dont use it to show combat or you are screwed, no mmo combat looks great on a fly-over
