    Hi,

    maybe you can help me. I tried to get into the game but everytime I play the game, after some hours it doesnt hook me. I like the lore, the grafics and atmosphere, but I cant get into the combat and classes. The classes feel so empty and lifeless. Does this get any better in mid/endgame?

    I've been trying to get into this game since release....still trying after one level 50 and a ton of mid-levels. You have to find a combination of weapon/class/skill lines that feel good to you. The problem with this game (if you aren't feeling the combat) is you will likely have to suffer through hours of shit gameplay to find something you actually like because you have to level up all the skill lines to even try it out. There are a gazillion combinations but of course metas rule. I recommend saying f**k the metas and going with what is fun to you. I am actually enjoying the necro more than I have the other classes, but still not sold on the game. The world is huge and there are a ton of quests, but every zone feels like a repeat just in a different package. Every delve, dungeon, etc. All of it plays the same. Tons of content, but when it all feels the same who cares? Good luck.

    ive been where you are now, it should be great, but its mediocre at best...
    Right it was very disappointing...I think many of us were hoping for Skyrim Online and we got something much less. I'm surprised so many people like it to be honest.

    Agreed. I wanted an MMO in the Elder Scrolls universe....what I got was an MMO that plays like a mediocre single player game. And now this pushing out "expansions" which are just zones that end up feeling the same as every other zone. This one has dragons, but they are pretty lame. The first time you fight one cool because it's new, but from there it is just a gimmick.

    The problem is that's its an MMO based in the Elder Scrolls universe but it has NONE of the elements of an Elder Scrolls game with the exception of Lore (more or less), so when you play you're reminded at every turn how much its not like an Elder Scrolls game. With the core game play being combat, which is where it misses the mark the most. If it wasn't trying to be an Elder Scrolls game, it could stand on its own, but its impossible. They made an Elder Scrolls game it should play like an Elder Scrolls game.

    Do you mean like a terrible , buggy mess? Combat in the single player ES games has been bad since Oblivion. At least Morrowind had combat that was based on RPG elements and not boring simplicity.

    ESO is better in every way IMO.

    Exploration , Combat , Quests , Graphics etc. All better.

    Better, but combat is still pretty bad with the spamfest no cool-down plus weapon swapping plus animation canceling.  It's boring and flat and basically boils down to how fast you can blow your load.

    Why did they even make this stupid weapon swap instead of making 10-12 skill bars or slots rather then the 5-6

    They have made skills the stat sticks rather than gear.  Good on them for making gear more interesting, but skills are pretty flat/boring.  You never even really use your weapon except to weave light/heavy attacks, just spam skills infinitely.

    Care to explain what this exactly means? What does it mean for something to "play like a TES game"?

    Honestly I thought it did a phenomenal job of playing like a TES game.  There are more limitations of course, because the world is shared etc but the storylines, the voice acting, the content itself (thieves guild, dark brotherhood etc) is all there.  

    People like to think that ES has some completely free-form system of complete freedom which is BS.  There are delves and dungeons and caves just like in ESO that look/feel the same as one another.

    This is the big problem for so many.  They expected something like Skyrim or Elder Scrolls and got well, this.  It was disappointing to some and others really enjoy the game.  I wanted to like this game as I love the Elder Scrolls and its lore but this game was a disappointment to me.  Its something I accepted after giving this game aboutg 7-10 tries over the years.  My guess is your experiencing what so many other have and its probably not going to get better for you if it hasn't by now.

    I have the same problem with ESO. I get into it for a couple of weeks then just get bored of it. To me, the combat is just to lame and boring after awhile. It would be more interesting if the hotbar was bigger for more abilities you could mix/match with. Switching between bars get lame to me.
