    Questionnaires are meaningless.

    I wrote in 4 features I wanted: Multi-choice rewards for completed quests so it is a bit easier to stay on track with what you wanted to specialize in. Ability to help group mates on instance quests even when they were on the same part as you. More "clutter" to find and interact with. Optional toggle for communicating with those outside of your faction; both would require their toggle to be turned on in order to understand one another; both would have to be outside of PvP.

    Collision Detection in PvP only would be a nice compromise.

    I suggested more nocks and crannies to explore spread out around the world.  Maybe it's the 1-15 zones but I felt that compared to past TES games the world seems a bit barren.  There was a lack of random things not connected to anything like bandit caves, troll caves, or wizards doing evil in a old ruin.

    BLEH!!  I would not want those it's so nice without them.  BUT, you will get them with addons so that's good news right?

    I went for collision detection. Seems a lot of people would like to see it.

     

    I criticized several things (weighted negatively):

    - content too easy

    - not enough crafting resources

    - low mount speed

    - atrocious quest stories

    - exploration not worth it

    ...I only got to level 8 though.

    Fundamental flaw in the survey - they never asked you mow much you played and how far you got.

    Grouping. The phasing issue, being invisible or not being able to assist, just way to complex and confusing for groups. Not sure how they don't see that straight up. Get about 20 people in the office in a guild, have everyone start playing on their own and then start grouping up with one another to play togehter. BAM!

    Content does get a lot harder after 10.  So much so that I am afraid most of the beta feedback will be it's to hard.  I also fear them speeding up leveling as well as what they currently have feels paced a lot more like a TES game than a MMO.

    I agree exploration needs more focus with things to find when you go out there looking.  I'm hoping that's just the lower level zones but it's hard to tell at this point.

    I assume its an email with a link to the survey.....its not like there UPS'ing them :)

    Lol

    Yeah I'm not that daft had nothing so it may have been a forum link or a in forum post but I'm having problems getting in it atm to check.

    yes it was an e-mail sent to the account you registered with...    Also the forums are closed when beta's are not running.

    I really hope they do not speed up leveling and make it a race to end game.  This is one of the few MMOs where I really enjoyed the leveling experience and I would like that to last a very long time.  The last time I enjoyed leveling this much was FFXI.

    There is no way to possibly add collision detection now. It is a basic part of the game engine. They might have to rewrite the game engine for it.

     

    I criticized the game:

    - for basically being on rails with NO chance for exploration.

    -Glass walls everywhere I went to try and explore.

    - No underwater swimming.

    -Terrible animations for running, walking, fighting, etc.

    -crafting system is inane

    -mobs have too few models and they are terrible compared to the beautiful background

    -Buildings being a separate zone - too many loading screens

    -The barrels, tables, etc look 2D in a 3D game - poor artwork.

    I had about 20-30 other points but these are the main ones.

    I believe this is already in the game, you need a filled soulgem to do it so perhaps that doesn't count under your 'for free' bit but I'd say it's close enough :-)

    You have to play it like a TES game more than a MMO, I never ran out of things to do because I kept on exploring and finding things. The only 'on rails' questing (using the term loosely)  was the main quest . 

    ^  Pretty much this.  You get out of a game what you put into it.  If all you want to do is mainstream yourself to following the storyline to level as fast as possible, then that's all you'll see.  I took off and explored the countryside and did everything but the main story.  Not on rails at all.

    You

    *cannot*

    leave 

    the noob islands - without completing the main quest.

    It doesn't get any more on rails than that.

    It's a ridiculous antiquated design - I understand that zones are tiered by levels - still horrible, horrible design to *force* players to complete the main quest.

    That was my feedback.

    They have that information - in their metrics - they know each email is tied to an account - and they have all the metrics for each account (characters/levels/time played etc...)

    That's a total of what, 30 minutes of play time at most?  Yeah, that makes it on rails.  /sarcasm

    Nope - the data is used in a composite score as a feedback for the dev team to score different areas of the game - it gives them an idea of how they are doing in different game elements.

    Prison, noob island 1, noob island 2, cannot be done in 30 min.

    And then once on main land - can you AvAvA - oh no - you have to get to level 10 - again 30min? Yeah good luck with that.

     

    On rails - means cannot be skipped or done in any alternate way - the noob experience is 100% on rails

    Not sure if you didn't read my post above - but my main complaint is forcing players to do 10 levels of before getting into the good part of the game - AvAvA. It's a terrible design mistake, it will only drive players away.

    This was extensively covered in many press previews - as the press could only talk about the first 10 levels - they slammed ESO pretty hard on how restrictive the noob experience is. I agree wholehartedly.

    My only suggestion was that they would make it so that aiming would play an bigger role in PvP, right now nobody misses any shots ever, it would make it more fun imho, but other than that game seems good, i can see it being fun for 1-2months but thats because of the lack of aiming required in PvP.

    So now you've went from "It doesn't get any more on rails than that" to "the noob experience is 100% on rails".  I don't care if you dislike the game for some reason but at least be consistent and tell the whole story.

    Skipping the prison after you played through at least 1x would be good. That gets old after a couple of re-rolls but at least it's fast unless you are raiding chests for mats/recipes.

    I don't know about latency but typing /fps stuck a readout in the upper left corner of your screen.

    Yeah, I was disappointed with this too. Aiming my arrow higher makes no difference at all, plus it's range is pathetically short. I'm like a legendary archer, but i can only shoot 27 yards???
