     I agree about the combat but I am just starting out and playing with classes. It feels like your just hitting a inanimate object when your in combat. Wish they would have stolen a page from another mmo. Age of Conan has my favorite combat system to date. I am still messing around with it but its just not really pulling me in.

    I have been playing many many mmo even p2p or f2p type, from aion, tera,guild wars 1,2 dc universe, rift,even final fantasy xiv, every title when it first released and still have to pay for the game or subscription, i bought it, but this is the game i dont want to spend money on, pre-ordered and play till sunday, i couldn't hold on anymore, i have to uninstall it, idk why people saying this game is so hyper, as the owner said, the combat so flat, i couln't recognize which is npc or players, hell, even pvp only for only one big map, the type mmo where u can mix both mele or magic, they should put more focus on pvp, not just like jump in to big map and try to take control over tower, if it just like that i prefer gw2, i would buy this game but not paying monthly fees for it. So for everyone out there, have fun playing it

    What I find interesting is that I completed Glenumbra ... or so I thought. Tonight I was helping a friend kill some of the mini-bosses that are placed around the area and we ran into an area where I had not done the quests. The quests were 10 levels lower but we did them anyway and we found another mini-boss that I had not seen before.

    Exploring the world opens up more opportunities. 

    I will return to Stormhaven and check every corner of the area before I leave for the next area.

    I personally like the game and the quests are a lot more engaging especially since I am reading and listening to the NPCs that give me the quests.

    If you can't get over the terrible combat, you've probably made a mistake. It's a shame you didn't get into bet to find this out. I gave this game 3 tries, but the combat is just too awful. You're 100% right. there's no "feel" to it like other action MMOs.

     

    Just let it be a lesson. I had to find out the hard way with Guild Wars 2 that it was single player MMO.

    Depends on the retailer.  Sometimes they might eat the loss in hopes you come back.

     

    If it was bought digitally, ZOS already knows they won't be seeing you again in their sub game, so they will deny refunds.

     

    I guess the real benefit is to deal with game shops, not directly via DD.  IMO the only responsible people are the game shops.  Once you get to dev/pub levels for anything, you are going to walk away disappointed.  They have no reason to impress you, like those smaller shops.

The combat is flat out TERRIBLE. I'm playing a nightblade, and have tried both melee and ranged....both are equally bad. There is just no "feel". Combat is really clunky...you don't feel like you are actually hitting anything....and its nothing but the same old "hit 1, 2, or 3 until something dies type of bore fest. 

    I was not expecting something super ground breaking...but this is just a huge disappointment. 

    For those that have been playing all week....does it get better? Am I missing something? Do I just need to level up more to get more interesting skills? Should a try a particular class/style that can make the combat bearable? 

    Someone please convince me to log in again....or tell me how to get a refund!! 

     No it won't get better. ESO sucks and you don't like it. Period. You have made a bad decision buying it. Uninstall it and don't come back on this forum complaining about a game that YOU don't like.

    Playing a game actually entitles a player to talk about the game.  You know, they played it and all, so they have a weighted opinion.  If you don't like the opinion, then you are free to discuss why they are wrong.  But telling them to go away is rather awful..

    I agree with you OP this game sucks balls. It is sort of pretty in places but the combat is wretched, quests are boring, the story line is meh. The game is just ugh. I learned that in Beta, sorry they got your money, but likely you just have to eat the loss, maybe you can find some sucker to buy the used copy and use your account. Other than that don't waste anymore time on this pile of fecal matter.

    If  you're having a blast playing this game, honestly I'm jealous. For me, running into a cave to kill some guy only to find him dead, and then waiting around for him to respawn, is about the opposite of immersion. I want to like it, I keep trying to play it, we'll see.

    Combat is one of the worst i have ever seen in MMO but that was not the selling point for this product.

    It tries to give ES experience in MMO and does that pretty well.

    Question is,can they produce new Skyrims every now and then ,every 2-6 months ? (new content with good quality)

    I think SWTOR tried something similar  in their adventuring game,which is also heavily story based and linear,and they could not.

    You can try to get a refund, it might not be too late.  I purchased during the head start and about 3 days after purchasing I petitioned for a refund and received one fairly painlessly.  It might have changed since the game is officially released now, but it's worth a shot.  You can speed things up by including your date of birth, secret question answer, account ID, and last 4 digits of the CC used to purchase the game in your petition.

    I agree with everything you said. 

    I also agree with everything Rock, Paper, Shotgun said about it in their impressions.  Check it out, see if maybe some of the tings in there ring true to you.  They did for me.

    1. Don't read & trust reviews, especially for AAA huge IP titles.

    2. Yes you do.

    3. Combat, Animations and Character Movement are all terrible & clunky.

    4.  No super ground breaking mmo's anymore.

    5. No you don't.

    6. There are many threads already in order to find how.

     

    So, not saying its a bad game, but its not for you...at least :)

    As I said before, this game is just another WoW-clone disguised with Skyrim skin. 

    I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO SORRY that you didn't play ESO beta,

    if you did, there is no way a smart guy like you would have bought this game.

     He wasnt even sure he wanted to play the game. Obviously the game is not for him and failed to entertain him and after that he came here begging for someone to tell him how awesome ESO is. Well good riddance sir.

    Combat seems as good as or better than most  mmorpgs. At least it's not tabbed targetting. Quests are way better than most. should you take the time to read the backstories the game takes on a real Elder Scrolls flavour which at the end of the day is what it is. Fantastic scenery in places, good crafting. Very happy with it now that it runs a bit better. That's when the servers are actually up. Initial launch put me off, but getting better. They should have stuck with the starter Islands. It is a far better introduction.
