This is why opinions can be as unique as the people sharing them, and interesting to read. I couldn't feel more opposite of you if I tried. Especially the world design part.Dvora said:Yep ESO has been garbage from day one. Like several people have said, there is something you just cannot put your finger on that is missing. IMO it's lots of little things, both missing and what should be missing.
One thing that stood out to me, other than the obvious bad combat, was how much the world looked more like a diorama of a world than than a world... I dunno hard to explain I guess. Bits and pieces and good elements of what a fantasy world should have but all kinda just thrown in haphazardly with no soul, and no proper sense of scale.
Then every single MMO in existence has a lack of build freedom, it's never the players' fault, and always the devs'.Kajidourden said:
Nope. ZoS fails in balance in several ways, the biggest is they design content around the meta that emerges instead of addressing the core of the problem.
The whole point of getting to higher levels of power is greater challenges. If you have to conform to a meta in order to complete that content then there is no real build freedom.
You can blame the players all you want, but ZoS is the one designing around meta stats.
I don't agree that it "should be an option".Golelorn said:You can level in ESO in less than 2 days hard play to 50. Of course, a new player can't do that - you need resources. But what game can a new player level to max quickly? And... I do agree with you. Leveling faster should be an option in ESO. I do find it tiresome. Buts its the genre.. not the game.
Also, do not forget. Once at 50 you do not have to regrind CP.
And if you think a max CP toon should be had quickly.... wow. CP is better than gear in ESO. A naked 660 CP toon is stronger than a max gear CP 160 toon.
You and Sean McCad both seem to be awfully determined to force your personal views as being more "right" than others'... simply because "you say so". You both seem awfully determined to inflate your own views with these really "authoritative sounding", but ultimately meaningless assertions and embellishments.Gorwe said:Jean-Luc_Picard said:It's more likely that the combat system is so different from the usual EQ/WoW clone combat that you didn't understand it fully and therefore find it bad.
If it's just not for you... don't insist.
It's not that. Even when compared to non MMO games that are played similarly, it feels odd. Remember, I liked GW 1. And the likes of combat of TERA etc are actually quite awesome. And I actually do not like tab target. I like third person reticule targeting much more.
But ESO has an identity crisis. It has it in general, trust me, but it's most visible in combat aspect.
