Taking place in a third person environment this time around, players will be utilising a hotbar for various attacks and actions.

So much about TES 'first person' combat :(

Oh... wish i didnt woke up this day at all

Main MMO at the moment: Guild Wars 2
Waiting for: Pathfinder Online

Tell me this is not true...

Tell you what is not true?

Open World Dungeons? Fully Interactive World? Random Events and NPC Dialogues?

Sure, I don't know why they did away with being able to master every skill, since Darkfall did ok with that approach. Regardless, throwing the hammer down this early in the game is pointless. I'm not saying gaming companies aren't absolutely stupid sometimes in what they create, but as long as EA isn't behind it, I'm game.

I do love mmo's and elder scrolls, but ill be extremely honest that if that information is correct, it looks like shit.

3rd person? standard mmo controls? WTF!!!!!

It's the world I love. I just want to wander around, find things, kill things and just have an awesome time. Looking forward to seeing how this actually looks and plays.

And if someone decided to make a SPRPG out of an MMO, the roles would be reversed. Why is this concept of transition so hard to comprehend. It's not a SPRPG, it's an MMO, thus it will use MMOesque UI and camera view. MMOs don't have to have FPS style combat to be successful. Probably a good idea anyway since everyone knows, any MMO with FPS style combat immediately turns into a hackfest.

Your logic doesn't hold.  If A company produces a poor MMO, it doesn't translate that company B would produce a poor MMO.  There is no relationship between the two events.  If they have the same developers, then you could argue the case.

They are coming for you!

I don't get it, what in that article says it's a "trash" worthy game?

Every MMO i have ever played has had open world dungeons.  (this game, like others has open world dungeons and instanced dungeons) Fully interactive wold, been done before. NPC DIalogue, done before as well.  \

This game, as described is not an elders scroll game. 

Hot bars? PVP? third person perspective? character classes?

Nice comment smart ass, you know what I meant. The UO and EQ era are dead. I am talking in the WoWesq era.

There's no such thing as MMOeswue perspective.  Why make an MMO if you're just going to do what every other MMO does. Again, my mario brothers analogy. Why make a platform game if you just are going to have the guy jump on mushrooms and shoot fireballs. Where is the Braid like innovation.

Every innovative MMO that has ever been released has not been attached to an already established IP from another genre.

I doubt anyone's too excited about something that's 2+ years away....the question is OP, why are you so excited about it?

Part of me hopes this is a great game, and another part of me shudders at the damage that can be done.

Currently bored with MMO's.

For the record, UO was an AWFUL representation of the ultimate single player game.  IT was just the first real mmo, and that's all it had going for it. 

I hated it, there was no quest for the avatar or any of the cool staples that made it my favorite game in the world.  The coolest thing about ultima, in the series, is that was so none combat based for major goals. To become the avatar you had to solve a series of puzzlesl. All that was devoid in the mmo.

So true - the game has just been announced and we have the "crapping on it from a great height" brigade already.

 

I would love to see it succeed, one of the best RPG series ever made. I do have some reservations, but, I do hope they'll do it justice.

Yes and GW2 isn't like GW1 this meant a bad game? When making an actual MMO conventions from another genre do not always fit. TES games have always had classes btw, you can create your own, but classes have always been in there some where. (just look at the CS.... every NPC has a class)

IT's far too early to write an entire game off based on a few paragraphs from an article. Far too early.

I want an mmorpg where pvp matters, my enemies are not my race or class, and community matters.

Ridiculous that even the brilliant minds behind Elder Scrolls have no clue about 3 factions.  Personally, 2 factions are so limited I'd say just do it Shadowbane style - or guild vs guild.  Two factions are just a rotten pvp concept that end up with one overpowered side each and every time - or just a boring stalemate between two roughly equal factions.  Either way, it's boring.

Im really excited for it, just glancing at the first page of the magazine article makes me really excited! 

Its easy to say, "oh its just another crap themepark", but these are what mmo's are, if your not a mmo fan you shouldnt be here.  New games will come along, were not at the point in time though where thats happening for everyone, were in Themepark times still, be happy about it. 

I Really cant wait to buy this freakin game, Iv held off playing all the TES games in the past by just watching walkthroughs on youtube but this is what I love, Im an MMO fan so this is perfect time to start.

Also, there are people out there that dont do the single player thing, this is a great idea to start something new for people like me that are all about the online expierence.

The person lead designing this MMO is one of the guys behind DAOC's RVR. Not those behind the elder scrolls. Anyway to the guy above there have always been major factions at war throughtout the TES games, PVP isn't out of place considering that.

TEs games have never been full on sandboxes, there's no world building or tools for it in these games. IF anything they've resembled offline MMO's, quest hub MMO's.
