So ZeniMax is saying they arent talented or skilled enough to do it?

 SOE has done it TWICE. SWG (open world housing) and EQ2 (instanced housing)

Both worked very well.

Anyway Elder Scrolls Online is the worst idea i heard the last 20y. Its gona be like Darfalls and how many play that? 3000 max?





 


You sound pretty clueless... Great studio, I for one will enjoy this game. Just the world and people who have proven track records is a thumbs up for me.

When have they ever made a perfect single player game?  Skyrim was the pick of the litter in many ways (although overall, I still think Morrowind was far more entertaining), but it was FAR from perfect.  In fact, without the modding community, it would have been nigh on unplayable for many of us.  An MMO by these folks isn't going to have a devoted and creative community to rely on, to shore up the game's weaknesses.

The new innovations and changes this title should accomplish:

*leaps and bounds in collision detection, allowing more objects in the environment to be interactive

*housing..

*a divergence from the strict trinity of classes.. it should not be limits on what you know, but what you choose to use, that defines different players.

What the Elder Scrolls Online means for MMORPG's?  NOTHING.  Not a damn thing whatsoever.

See, the Elder Scrolls as a stand alone game is ok.  Nothing special like Planescape Torment or Ultima IV but yards better than the psuedo arpgs Dragon Age 2 and The Witcher 2.  However, everything that makes the Elder Scrolls special is gone when you shove it into an mmo.  No more will we be able to make the character we want, but what Bethesda Dictates.  No player housing, means yay get to buy bank slots from Bethesda for the crap they shove in that MIGHT be useful and wont be 2 months from storage.  No user generated content means boring quests, boring redundant story lines, lame armor and weapons, and mechanics that for the most part are broken and uninspiring.  But hey, we get more Voice Overs that we get to skip through.  Good thinking there.

Why do people ignore the clear problems SWG's housing had for the long term look and feel of the game? Ghost towns all over were epic...

As for instanced housing, yes that's really believable...

Well if it is exactly like Skyrim the actual elderscrolls game provides actual repeatable storyline/quests etc if the player chooses and such with expanding content PVP & Sub then it could mean that Blizzard and a lot of other little MMORPG companies with not so good management just might take an arrow to the knee.

I am personally waiting to see The Secret World take down Fallen Earth because of the GM's lack of support there, but hope to see more F2P MMO's with bad support and little cashshop games loose profit as well due to new releases like GuildWars2, and TERA for example.

It would also be nice of course to see BioWare loose some of its customers due to the release of ESO then maybe they would all start to listen to what its players want, and get better management.

We know very little aside from what was leaked, yes it's far too early for the negative brigade to strike up arms against this.

You must be joking right? The reason why there were ghost towns was because of the NGE. Before that crap happened, player cities were jammed packed and full and players trying to find places to start up new cities had problems. Build a freaking mmorpg right and don't screw over the playerbase with huge sweeping changes and your long term housing problems will never happen.

Why would someone even want to do that to another player?

But that's what we're here for, mutual flagellation.  And besides, I keep most of my vitriole for the other animals.  Harmless non-combatants generally get a free pass, so long as they don't flag.

Uhmm what part of that did you not understand? ANd we had ghost towns on Bloodfin from patch 9 onward which is where the games decline began, and never stopped.

No player housing because it's too hard to implement.

No warewolves or vampires because it's too hard to balance them.

No Radiant AI because apparently it would be too frustrating for some players.

No real time combat because apparently "the reality of network latency" prevents them from implementing it. On a side note, how many FPS and real time combat MMOs have to be released before that stops being an excuse? Planetside had real time FPS combat in 2003!

Not to mention that if you read those magazine scans, it seems like a rip off of GW2 with a bit of stuff sprinkled from other games.

-Hubbless quest design. You explore the world and stuff happens AKA GW2's hearts quests and dynamic events (maybe).

-No holy trinity.

-Smaller hotbar with skills you can freely change outside of combat.

-Equiped weapon determines the first 2 abilities, you pick from a few class skills and the last is an elite... err I'm sorry, ultimate ability.

-Combo attacks with other classes. They literally used the same example as GW2 did with the mage setting a firewall and a warrior doing a "whirlwind" type attack and sending fireballs flying all over the place.

-Waypoint travel system.

-Endurance based dodge and block system.

-3 faction open world PvP in a separate zone with farms that create supply needed for forts and siege weapons. Though granted, 3 faction PvP is more of a DAoC thing.

-Emperor can be elected (TERA).

If I want to play GW2, I'll play GW2. When it comes to a TES game, I expect it to be a TES game.

You know, I agree with everything you say.  I wanted to be positive about it, but they seem to really have no idea about their fanbase after all. I should just give up on MMOs. They are one big pipe dream.

Enter a whole new realm of challenge and adventure.

The danger with making mmorpgs based on hugely popular franchises is that game becoming heavily dependent on the franchise and not in the game itself. SWTOR is the best example.


Bethesda, if you're reading this please give Anet a call and get some tips from them. Avoid EA!



<rollseyes> 


While we're at it, maybe we can have President Obama give ArenaNet a call to get some tips on how to run the country.  Or maybe we can get the Cancer Institute to call ArenaNet to get some tips on how to cure cancer.  


Gimme a break...



 


     Those are both excellent suggestions. I do hope they take your advice.

They are deviating so far from the key features of what make Elder Scrolls special, that it is in insult to their fans.

 

Can you believe their comment about Player Housing??? It is not possible to provide player housing in an MMO in the way players wish to have it???

 

My god, Star Wars Galaxies and Vanguard can do it 8 and 6 years ago... but the freaking Elder Scrolls Online gave up without even an attempt?

 

They have left the skill system behind for a class based system???

 

They feel that the NPC AI from Elder Scrolls single player games which would perhaps have NPC's present during the daytime and somewhere else at night would not work in an MMO.

 

What the hell is the budget for this game? Less than Darkfall?

 

What an utter disapointment and insult to the name of the brand.  This is such a poor reproduction that it is almost criminaly misleading advertising by naming it Elder Scrolls Online.

-Hubbless quest design. You explore the world and stuff happens AKA GW2's hearts quests and dynamic events (maybe).

-No holy trinity.

-Smaller hotbar with skills you can freely change outside of combat.

-Equiped weapon determines the first 2 abilities, you pick from a few class skills and the last is an elite... err I'm sorry, ultimate ability.

-Combo attacks with other classes. They literally used the same example as GW2 did with the mage setting a firewall and a warrior doing a "whirlwind" type attack and sending fireballs flying all over the place.

-Waypoint travel system.

-Endurance based dodge and block system.

-3 faction open world PvP in a separate zone with farms that create supply needed for forts and siege weapons. Though granted, 3 faction PvP is more of a DAoC thing.

-Emperor can be elected (TERA).

If I want to play GW2, I'll play GW2. When it comes to a TES game, I expect it to be a TES game.

You know, I agree with everything you say.  I wanted to be positive about it, but they seem to really have no idea about their fanbase after all. I should just give up on MMOs. They are one big pipe dream.

I just hope that this MMO doesn't mean an end for single player TES games. I really do like them.
