    ESO has a lifetime account subscription option? The article said something about that but I don't remember ESO having such an option when I played frequently. Thanks in advance if anyone knows or can verify.

    ESO does not have a lifetime subscription option.

    It does have a b2p option, but that does not function like a lifetime subscription as it requires the ongoing purchase of newly added content you wish access to.

    What was missing from the Bethesda joins Xbox roundtable? The guy in the suit from Microsoft who is going to tell them what to produce and what platforms it will go on. It is amusing that we never see anyone in a suit in "developer" videos, yet it is the suits calling the shots.

    Lifetime users is not the same thing as lifetime subs.

    ESO's combat is pretty bad. HOWEVER, one thing they do offer that WoW has long forgotten: content outside of timegated grinds and mythic/raiding.

    That's why ESO's numbers are going up while WoW's dwindle. Again. Because Blizzard never learns that the bulk of their playerbase aren't the try hard raiders; they're casual players who want something to do beyond non-rewarding grinds and systems.

    FFXIV also offers this kind of thing, as much as I loathe the linear design of that game-- it is a good alternative for casual players who are tired of Blizzard only listening to its e-sport fanatics on the forums.

    Massively has a pretty good opinion piece on elitism in MMOs, and why games like WoW keep bleeding out.

    ESO has become such trash since they introduced Tamriel Unlimited. The game has become the go-to place for lazy casuals and folks in their 40s and 50s that don't have the means or the time to play a remotely challenging MMO so they just like to pretend like they're "playing an MMO" and all they do is collect useless cosmetics, mounts, pets, houses, complete story quests and kill mobs that prove absolutely no danger to them at all.

    I'm not saying everyone should play some perma-death MMO with open PvP where you can lose all your items upon death, but at least the standard should be something like Vanilla WoW where your character had its limits, like how much mobs it can pull and handle without dying, a specific role in a group, gear restrictions based on class, having to visit a hub in order to train new abilities and pay for it, work your ass off to get a mount, that kind of stuff...

    The way ESO is currently, there are no classes, because they are completely homogenized - everyone can be anything - looking at people, you can't even tell who is what class, they can learn almost the same skills based on weapons, wear all kind of armor and all of this has no merit over anything, at this point, 90% of ESO is cosmetic. The only so-called "challenge" is running Trials, even Veteran Dungeons are a piece of cake if you have more than one barely functioning brain cell.

    I think you might want to read this article because it seems to be talking about you to a T.

    Is a man not entitled to the herp of his derp?

    Remember, I live in a world where juggalos and yugioh players are real things.

    It's sad because a lot of really nice suits are crafted by actual tailors/seamstresses. We need a new derogatory term for "financial decision maker" that doesn't lessen the work of actual tradespeople.
