  • Making Your To-Do List for the Post-Summerset Launch - Elder Scrolls Online - MMORPG.com

    I actually liked the Morrowind exp and enjoyed playing the Warden class. Although I really don't like the combat, the story and atmosphere was enough to keep me interested in it so I subbed and played it until cp 350+ when the grind go to me and I unsubbed.

    A month or two ago I got a closed beta invite for the new exp and thought I would give it a go since I love the elves and thought the last exp was really good. Since Zeni doesn't want me talking about the main story until it releases for PC, I won't, but suffice to say I won't be getting this one. Overall the exp just feels like more of the same. I was getting deja vu with many things.

    Would to say more, but that will have to wait.

    I'm not sure what is worse/better - to be able to buy end-game equipment directly for $50-300 or pay $180 annual subscription fee and still not get desired items due to RNG, DKP, guild politics, not being main tank, not hunter, not puller or whatever crap excuses devs use to justify 3% (per week per 20-40 ppl in raid) drop chance for raids?

    You're not paying the sub for items, you're paying it for access to the game in its entirety.

    Correction: I'm not paying for the game and its bullcrap RNG rigged to make sure I'll pay forever and still not getting all the items I wanted.

    You do realize from Trions viewpoint the mechanic is working as intended, right?

    If they can get people to regularly raid while chasing the prize more power to them.

    I burned out on gear grinding MMOs a long time ago, just not something I enjoy anymore.

    Yep. I'm playing Rift prime right now and enjoying the ride to max. When I reach it, I will roll another. I don't raid and have no desire to. That is with any MMO I have played in the past. I just don't have that kind of time anymore and even if I did, I still wouldn't do it.
  • To Prime or not to Prime?

    From what i understand, the code is the same as the F2P code, just with some minor changes in how things are purchased.  Some mounts that are bought from the cs in f2p game are drops in prime.  Most everything else is the same.

    This isn't what I was expecting.  I thought it was the original game from when rift first opened with maybe fixes, but it's not.  It's still enjoyable, but I won't play on the f2p server at all.  That is just me though.  I would rather know that everyone else earned what they had than bought their way to the end which you can do on the F2P servers from what I'm told.

    So I tried the Rift Prime experience and I am very disappointed.  I started about a week after it came out and was on a 2 week pass.  By the time my pass was up many people had already hit 50 and the queue to do lower level content was getting kind of long.  I made it to level 19 on two desperate characters.  maybe I should have just power leveled one character, but I wanted to try and enjoy a slower paced leveling and hopefully get to see a lot of the early content.  I am not sure why so many people raced up to the highest level, but they did.

    I did not renew my subscription. I really wanted to enjoy the game at what I would consider a reasonable pace. 

    Has anyone noticed the same thing? 
    When a game design is bad,everything is a race to end game,this has been going on ever since Wow was released.
    Nobody cares about Lore or rpg elements,everything is a veee line directly towards speed leveling.
    There is a game world !!! Oh really,where can i level the fastest..there are npc's to tal kto ,oh really ,where is the best starting zone to level up the fastest.There are many classes to enjoy,oh really which one is the easiest to solo and level up fast.

    See the trends,VERY shallow gaming is what games and players are all about now a days,it is very sad times for quality gaming.

    Pick an mmo that doesn't have people racing to the end?  That is just part of today's gamer.  It's always a race to get to the end and then move on.  One of the main reasons I think that western devs don't make mmo's anymore.  I really don't think it has to do with the quality of the game.  For you maybe, but not me.  If I don't like a game, I just don't play it.  I won't finish it just because.

    I left rift about 2 months after it had released.  Not because it was a bad game, but it got old having been playing it since the first closed beta.  That was my mistake.  I don't do f2p games, so I thought I would try out prime and I'm having fun going at my own pace.  Level 30 and have been playing for 2 weeks.  I think I avg maybe 15 min for group cues, but that is  nothing really.

    I have no intention of raiding, so once I hit cap, I will roll another then unsub until more content is added.
  • Elder Scrolls Online - The Combat and the Content of ESO - MMORPG.com

    ESO was designed from day one as a console game. Everything from the combat mechanics to the UI shouts console. There is nothing wrong with that, but as a PC player, I always felt limited. I don't need 20 spells to enjoy combat, but one HB with 12-15 spells would be nice. Instead we get two that you must switch between for a total of 12 slots and as mentioned, if you have a pet, there goes some of your slots.

    Not having central AH sucks as well. Having to join a guild just to sell something isn't much fun especially when most require you to sell a certain amount each week or month or pay a certain amount if you don't.

    For me, the game was fine from 1-50 as and you can play it how ever you like with what build you like. Even in the normal dungeons. Beyond that, the game fell apart for me. Grinding became more of a chore and if your wanting to do a harder dungeon or trials, you will need to have certain gear and play a certain way with a certain build. No different from any other MMO. You only have the illusion of choice.

    If your a console only player then ESO is a good choice sine it was made for you and you have few choices any way. If your a PC player, there are other other choices that are better imo.
