What I Want from ESO’s Next Chapter

    I own the collectors edition of ESO

    ESO Lacks and what I think needs to change :

    Consistence in combat operation.
    -fix skill clipping
    -fix skill animation length to be normailzed for all classes

    Game World
    -its such a linear world that people go straight 90% of the time
    -no deviation from the linear straight path zone to zone
    - almost ever zone is created as an entry point bottom or top left or right and the exit is bottom top left or right // its boring as fuck.

    Characters and animation
    -im playing Ryl online all over with the hip twisters and how the sword swings, it is exacly like Ryl Online
    - Character models are dated and boring.
    - animations are probably some of the worst in the industry. Lineage 2 has more animation in the breast of its Dark Elf females then an entire ESO character.
    -horse animation ...LOL

    Game Content
    -there is none. It is the same vertical climb as every other mmo before it with no deviation from that path way
    - the quest and stories have been played to death in many games squared.
    - Crafting ? Did it before in about 10 other games
    -leveling , exactly the same as every mmo preceding 
    -monsters ? the same
    -Instancing, its boring


    again, BDO has done a fresh take on every single point I've listed and round down the eras that most games want to verticalize like grinding. BDO allows people to grind effortlessly killing mass amounts at one time. In ESO if you go kill 50 things it takers hours, in BDO it would take 2 minutes.

    Having this troll episode that denies BDO MMORPGGOTY Might be fun for this website, but it missed a great opportunity to reward a company who is actually worth rewarding. MMORPG.COM, the real trolls of the industry. BAN yourselves. Every year your get it wrong, is another year of the same rehashed shit from redundant publishers listening to your words. As a warning : I'm not in a good mood. reply at your own risk.
    Ah yes, BDO.  Or in other words: "Kiting mindless AI while spamming AoE: The Game", such incredible content!  Oh wait, there isn't any.

    Edit: Also I think it's cute that you think anyone cares what mood you're in today.  You don't scare anyone.
    I remember when this website had really amazing and top noitch trolling, what ever happen to that ... #yawn Keep on keeping on, I'm feeling a lot better  now :) . Have fun in elderly old ideas online :)



    One thing I can't understand, is you claim BDO as MMO of the year.  It has nothing going for it, grinding 50 mobs at a time doesn't change the incline of the requirements to level up vs. one mob at a time.  I couldn't get into it because I felt it was designed specifically for people who have severe ADHD as the combat focus is just, wipe everything on the screen as fast as possible clicking one skill.

    Also the fact you call ESO linear is troubling.  You have the entire world in your hands and you can go to any part of that world and start your journey and then move to any other part and keep going.  There is no path to follow.  I found it quite satisfying to move to areas of Skyrim and be immersed in the story and then jump on down to Morrowwind and get involved with stuff over there.

    Those are the few things that stuck out to me that make think you are blind or just butthurt that your MMO didn't make the list.

    That is so ridiculous people get kicked for not doing animation canceling.  Only a true idiot would so something like that.

    Can someone explain the whole animation cancelling thing? I don't get it?


    Interesting. I haven't played ESO in a while but I always thought animation cancelling was more like For Honor where you cancel an attack to do something else, but here in ESO you actually do damage with the cancelled attack. Really weird.

    This is a double edge sword. On the positive side it speeds everything up. On the negative side, i can see this discouraging slower players from doing PvP because they will always die.

    This would not affect me personally since i don't do PvP, but I can see it being a problem in PvE if groups start demanding animation cancelling to maximize PvE damage. If that becomes a thing I would just not play the game or go full solo.
    I do mostly solo pve and with animation canceling it means I usually do well at dark anchors and tagging bosses in crowded dungeons.  I'm kinda surprised that starting a skill before the last one has finished would be such a big deal, it's very effective.

    Like getting kicked for a low DPS score.  Being specced for survival instead. :neutral:

    Was anyone else disappointed in the coming racial changes? I thought they said the changes would let your characters have more flexibility in the way you play. That seemed like a lie to me. They just seemed to buff the racial i little bit is all.

    I was hoping that it would be like the single player games. It didn't matter what race you were. You could play how you wanted. A redguard could be good at magic. I made Redguard battlemages in the single player games. Yes, you can do magic in ESO but you won't be as good as a magic race. In one of the single player games, there was a powerful Nord mage that you worked with. But in ESO Nords are seen as big drunken warriors with little intelligence. I just don't want the races to be the factor in playing so much.

    I don't think that was the same for all the game.

    for example, in Morrowind, Nords had bonuses to strength but Altmer, for example, weren't strong and had bonuses to intelligence.

    Maybe you are thinking Skyrim?

    Ah, it been so long since I played Skyrim. But I seem to remember being able to buff say your intelligence when you leveled if you want to in Morrowind.

    Racials in all TES games have always had their strengths and weaknesses and ESO is no different. If you're into min/maxing, even casual min/maxing, those differences will matter to you. But you can make any build "outside the box" in ESO as well.

    The only difference is that ESO is an online game so you will get peer pressure and possibly even snide remarks if you don't build using the best race for you build/role according to the community... doubly so if you want to do end-game trials.

    The only one stopping you from making a Redguard battlemage in ESO is you :)

    True, you could. I don't remember if you could buff it so that it would rival that of an Altmer (if you were a nord) or if you could buff it but it would never get as nigh as a nord.

    For the most part, it seems that it had to do with how much you used a particular skill.

    But all the games seemed to have very specific racial traits that allowed for the favoring of one race over another for a particular trait. I personally never allowed that to affect me but as Iselin said, if you play with others, particularly in pick-up-groups, you will get people giving you their two cents.

    Probably better to join an easy going guild that doesn't care.

    I love dynamic events and is probably why I've stayed with GW2 so long. You start off in one location and the event constantly adjusts to the number of players and the longer ones take you across zones. I hit my first max level doing one and was so caught up in it hitting max level came as a surprised as I was too busy enjoying the action to even glance at the XP bar. More MMOs should chain quests together like that. Instead of braking off the quest and telling you to go talk to NPCxyz next in order to continue.

    ESO is good in that the town and city gossip updates as you accomplish things. They have some well written quests also.
