    Full pricing. The way they word it sounds like they are greedy fucks.

    The animation, ugh. It looks like their torso is stuck in space-time while their legs move them forward.

    We'll see... What completely turned me off is the fact that it's not true open world PvP. Like DAoC, 3 faction home areas and 1 meet-in-the-middle mosh pit to duke it out. I want to be able to move into faction territory and push people back a bit and, at the same time, have to watch my back regardless of where  I am in the world or how deep I am into my own faction's territory. This is a game destroyer for me.

    ------------------------------
    MMORPGs are great to look forward to after a hard day of work, but heaven is the ultimate reward for those who live Christ-like.

    For those wanting a solid PvP experience this might be the game but for those of us like me looking forward to PvE escapades or a spiritual successor to the TES series we'll have to wait a little longer.

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    Bingo!- u nailed it.

    GW2 done right you mean.  GW2's issues is their WvW zones are extremely small compared to DAoC's.  ESO at least fixes this with a huge area in Cryodiil.  Zergs will occur, just as they did in DAoC but with wide open areas and huge spaces there is room for smaller groups to prevail.  Unlike in GW2.

    no ur not wrong, it is a a tad bit like AOC but not much and nothing like GW2 , GW2 gies u every ability for your class and the same weapon abilities all the time, TESO u build what abilities u want on weapons and upgrade them accordingly, secondly you have skill that will level up and change and they cant be changed back once leveled, nothing like any of those games, make one mistake with a skill picking the wrong advancement and boom you are gimp. itstead of messing up on a dex vit build like other games you mess up your skills and u cant go back so..... yeah

    i can't go into more detail because of NDA but my first statement still holds true. 

    Also, learn how to format your posts man, it is hell trying to read that wall of text.

    Only similarities is that there is 3 faction pvp,

    I've logged over a 1000 hours in Skyrim, but I'm not the slightest bit interested in ESO.

    If it gets really good player reviews after launch and I like what I see on the "Let's Play..." video's on YouTube, I may give it a try.

  • evilizedevilized columbus, OHPosts: 564Member Uncommon

    It's actually rather frustrating. I was in the SWTOR beta and couldn't warn people about the iceberg that game was headed towards. Zeni does have a few more months left I guess… Being the only MMO-ish game available on consoles might help it out, who knows.

    write it down.

    May be, but the drop off afterward will be pretty sharp.

     

    Which I am writing down here, I guess.

    If you are holding out for the perfect game, the only game you play will be the waiting one.

    Played the beta for ten minutes. Character creation was beautiful.. the actual part of playing said character was awful. Biggest MMO letdown of 2014 is in the books.
  • EndoRobotoEndoRoboto Silverdale, WAPosts: 275Member
    Been playing elder scrolls since daggerfall so to say i was biased toward single player experience wouldnt be a lie.

    They were going to launch 3 days earlier but the irony was too much. Muahahaha.

    I KEED! Seriously, just joking. I couldn't resist. :p Good for the fans of the game. They now have a date. So drop the NDA Zeni and let us see what you've got cooking.

    I've smelled what they're cooking....it doesn't smell good at all. But then again, everyone has different tastes.

    To soon, you want to release me too soon  Zenimax, what is the meaning of this announcement?

    -It´s these mortal suits my lord,  they have invaded our dev-time, and seek to make tons of quick grab cash.

    Fool! You allowed these insects to put business above streamlining ? And now you allow them to  decide my release date?!    You have failed me, Zenimax,  A poor launch shall be met indeed.

    Now for you insects, boldly you sought to test the game before it was ready, now you shall see it sink first hand!

    It's nowhere near ready, and i seriously doubt it will be ready in 5 months, especially knowing they've had years to make this game.  If they couldn't make it better after all this time, then they never will.

    Bigger zones doesn't mean more tactical operations.  It just means more running around.  And you're right, smallers groups don't prevail in gw2.. oh wait, just last night 4 of us took a tower by ourselves, and 2 of us took a supply camp.

    That depends on what you mean by "better".

    If you mean "make it a different game" then no, they can't.

    If you mean polishing, adding voice overs, adding remaining quests then "sure" of course they can.

    Morrowind was the best.   I loved the Norse expansion.  Also the mudcrab merchant..  This game better have mudcrab merchants!!

    The video reminded me of the Warhammer Online promotionals, except refit with AOC graphics.

    The trailer emphasizes PVP, in a game centered around PVE without open world PVP ..

     

    Is this their target audience?

     

    The trailer had so many fade out's, fade in's, and cut / paste scenes that I'm getting a headache now .. ugh  .. This is Elder Scrolls?  This is a monthly subscription + cashshop ?  GW2 looks the same and is B2P?  I stopped playing GW2 after a few weeks, and I fear that will be the demise of the once great ES brand as well :(

     

    What a shame :(

     

    ps - 1000 credits this is another SWTOR style unfinished release! =-D
