... and, to repeat myself, I don't see that as a problem.
The option was open to anyone with the wherewithal and desire to buy into it at that level...which, by the way, does not require one to be "rich" to do so.
A PS4 with a game can still approach $500. A 1TB XBone can cost $499 by itself. An NVidia GTX1070 (nevermind a 1080) can go for up to $600... A whole PC can cost $1k and much higher.
Are you suggesting that all those things are targeted only toward rich people? By your logic, they must be.
Would you argue that someone capable of earning the funds to build a new gaming PC, or buy a mdoern gaming console wouldn't be also able to accrue the $500 needed for a higher-tier plot/house in SoTA if they so wished? Your logic about "$500+ = Rich people" would seem to indicate so. Yet it doesn't bear out at all in reality, just like everything else you've said.
Very good point!Iselin said:Especially in ESO since it's not nearly as end-game focused as other MMOs. The trials are neither particularly numerous nor difficult- it's not a raiders MMO despite having raids.
The gear that you get in trials is also not particularly BIS gear. For example, Twice Fanged Serpent from Sanctum Ophidia may be better than Spriggan's that you get from Bangkorai quests and overland drops but it's debatable. And if it is better, it's just barely so. And the meta for stamina DPS all pair either of those with Hundig's Rage which is a crafted set and only a 6-trait set that almost anyone can craft. You can 100% fully gear up with the best stamina DPS gear at CP160 without ever setting foot in a trial.
The "game starts at end-game" mentality just doesn't work in ESO. It's also about the same as saying "Hi, I'm from WOW and I don't understand how ESO works."
I don't agree that it "should be an option".Golelorn said:You can level in ESO in less than 2 days hard play to 50. Of course, a new player can't do that - you need resources. But what game can a new player level to max quickly? And... I do agree with you. Leveling faster should be an option in ESO. I do find it tiresome. Buts its the genre.. not the game.
Also, do not forget. Once at 50 you do not have to regrind CP.
And if you think a max CP toon should be had quickly.... wow. CP is better than gear in ESO. A naked 660 CP toon is stronger than a max gear CP 160 toon.
Must say... I didn't think I would ever see someone complaining about zones being "too open".Gorwe said:Does this game actually get interesting? Sure, the audiovisuals are breathtaking and the world building's amazing. Even the little stories are fun and interesting. BUT! The combat S.U.C.K.S. Really, it's one of the worst combat systems I ever saw. No impact, very spammy(this comes from someone who likes the likes of Arsenal Mercenary in SWTOR!), next to no sense of progression(yeah, thanks One Tamriel! I thought that we graduated this issue with Oblivion...guess not), too open zones...
This is almost painful to play. Sure, visiting Hammerfell or Elsweyr or the like is always awesome, but...THAT COMBAT!
