  • F2p'ers are not jerks and being a subscriber does not ensure you are nice!

    I am tired of the argument that a game goes to crap when it offers a f2p model BECAUSE OF THE F2P'ERS themselves.  As if people blessed with income to throw away are so much more nicer than those of us who are on a low entertainment budget.  I have met as many trollish subscribers as f2p'ers.   It is very insulting to suggest that your "game went downhill when we let those free to players in."
  • So I was playing ESO - captured this screenshot.

    Reddit threads are more upbeat than mmorpg.com.  No offense to this forum but it's patrons have turned it into a bitch and moan zone.  Most of us are having fun.  We don't feel "fleeced."  If you don't want to buy a pretty costume from the cash shop just do the content.  Except for extravagant mounts most everything in the cash shop gets handed to me for free as I am questing or leveling up.  I even get free coins to spend in cash shop.  I have not spent one penny on this game outside of the original box purchase and my costumes and dyes are accumulating at an astounding rate.  You people who bitch and moan about everything are not even playing the game or you would know that.

    And if you think you are getting robbed with your subscription then unsub.  No one is forcing you at gunpoint to pay a monthly.  It is for a crafting bag which you don't even need because mules/alts.
  • Why is Elf-Fantasy the most popular?

    So summing up your answers it is a combination of excessive historical exposure and sex sells.  And you are right.  The leading competitor is science fiction which is not as old and grounded because obviously we have not been living in the technological age that long.  Perhaps 2000yrs from now twi'leks will have a fanatical resurgence.  Until then, long live the master race!

  • How much does TESO cost now?

    Got it.  Watch Steam before Christmas while shoving red hot poker in eyes.  Good advice!  *grinning*
  • The Stigma of Gaming

    Games are art to me and I grew up respecting art so I respect games.  Of course art "back in my day" was Norman Rockwell not this weird stuff.  I wonder what this generation respects or if it even needs to respect?  Lot of empty people with no direction spewing nonsense and caring even less.  Is it a wonder they criticize games when they bad mouth everyone/thing?  Maybe you have to respect yourself before you can begin to respect anything else.
  • Why I play ESO? and why do you?

    I'm a dark elf and the game is well built.  I played Oblivion and Skyrim.  I like TESO because it reminds me of those places and puts me with the people who played those games.  So we can talk about where we've been and what we've done.  A lot of jokes.  A lot of back and forth banter going on in game and forums.  That is not to say there are trolls here and there but they don't have majority say like in other mmo's I've played.  Variety of things to do.  A little old school in that it takes a long time to level up in crafting and skills and money.  Takes me back to the way mmo's used to be before the speed induced younger generation got a hold of them.
