Seven members of the design team took nearly an hour and a half to regale the excitable crowd with enticing glimpses of the game's future, eliciting cheers and applause at the most dramatic reveals.

    Awesome glad they are trying to improve the game. Now all I need to wait for is it to go free and I will download, register, and login. Keep up the good work - can't wait to see you in game - for free :-) unless you wait to long and Camelot Unchained steels your f2p thunder, if that's the case, I probably won't see you in game, unless you're playing Camelot Unchained too :-)

    Good changes in the works. Sane people shouldn't buy MMOs within 3-6 months of launch nowadays anyways.

    new solo PvE zone?....

    remind me again why should i pay a sub to play the content i like (PvE) solo?

    back to Skyrim for a new playthrough.

     

    Oh and im getting my popcorns ready for a ZoS confirmation on selling old tier gear in a cash shop. If this is true then it will be a fun spectacle. If this becomes a thing, blame Trion for starting the "low lvl gear in cash shop" thing. P2W alert.

     
    EDIT: already confirmed its in game currency, not real money.

    ZoS confirmed in Twitch chat that the comment Sage made was referring to in game currency, NOT real world money.

    They reeeeeeally need to do something about stamina builds.  Everyone running around in light armour with staves isn't what I'd call diversity.   

     

    Seems like they're doing a lot of stuff so hopefully we'll see something in the near future.

  • JoeyjojoshabaduJoeyjojoshabadu BuderimPosts: 162Member Uncommon
    Good. I may check it out again in another 6 months. And I'm glad they are listening to the many players like myself, who wanted more of an Elder Scrolls experience in an Elder Scrolls game (and not the current crop of blind fans who seem to actively reject even the idea that this is possible).
  • black_isleblack_isle IstanbulPosts: 239Member Uncommon

    LOL i can't believe how people are. Sage OBVIOUSLY meant in-game gold and then it's already confirmed by CMs on twitch chat live, on the spot.

     

    When they add all these things, figure out how to make it work and release for consoles, i will buy it on PC.

     

    They better add Thieves and DB fast also.

    No, ESO just doesn't do it for someone who wants to feel like their making an impact in the game. It's a shame that the developers don't see this. And who can blame them, they made their money, their happy, hopefully they come out with another single player game, because for this company, that's where they seem to excel.

    Watch live video from bethesda on www.twitch.tv

    05:15:00 starts eso

    - there is nothing about selling old stuff by ZOS.. players can..

    - new content will be released as "seassons" so vertical progression like wow had

    This is just going to be one of those games that will only become adequately playable 6 to 8 months after release. Maybe even a year. I say adequately because yes, while you can log in now, the game just doesn't feel complete. It feels more like open beta that requires a monthly subscription. By this time next year, it might just be one of the best MMO's on the market but it's going to go through a ton of growing pains to get there. I'm glad they're talking about the future but I'm not ready go come back to the game until the future is here.

    Did I read this correctly? They are getting rid of veteran levels? I hated the fact that I had to keep leveling after hitting the cap.

    Console Esports?

    They are staying but they are adding champion points so that there is real progression in veteran ranks. The addition of nonvet and vetonly PvP campaigns will also help with that. They are also adding a bit to itemization, for what I hope to only be a slight increase.

    There will no longer be veteran experience. This part I don't quite get. It will be normal Xperia if I understand It but then it just seems moot to me. Call it anything and it can work the same way regardless. As long as I get to constantly improve my character then I am happy.

    SOLO PVE IN ESO WOW imagine that!  Imagine how rare it is to do something in pve that is solo in this game (boggles).  My god - when will this crap die.

    When more people have time to play 8 hours a day half of which is finding a group.

    Unemployment is going down though so you might be alone for a while.

    Great new content is great.
  • goemoegoemoe HannoverPosts: 183Member Uncommon
    It as been a good presentation with lots of good stuff to come. And it is a lot of stuff for the first months of a MMO. There are other MMOs out there boasting what great stuff they do (only boasting, they don't) who could learn a thing or two from ZOS...

    Most likely indeed. And I'm waiting for B2P as well...
