I don't normally get this excited about MMO's a head of time but the promise of Dark Age of Camelot meets Elder Scrolls plus meaningful crafting has me really looking forward to this title.

My friends and I have been waiting for an Elder Scrolls MMO since Morrowind. Here's to hoping they get it right, I have faith!

The hype train really needs to slow down. Wait until we actually get hands on before going off.

I did battle with ignorance today, and ignorance won.

To exercise power costs effort and demands courage. That is why so many fail to assert rights to which they are perfectly entitled - because a right is a kind of power but they are too lazy or too cowardly to exercise it. The virtues which cloak these faults are called patience and forbearance.

2 people saying they are excited isn't really a train, in fact most people around here are already trashing the game so...I dunno. Read?

They haven't. If you like me have been hoping for a true Elder Scrolls MMO this isn't it. This is DAoC 2 in Tamriel. Not saying it will be a bad game, and maybe it'll be fun to play, but take it for what it is. Otherwise you'll just be disappointed.

 Ok i'm somewhat neutral if hopefull on this game till we get to see a bit more. Having said that this may seem nitpicky but anyone notice the elves in ESO from the trailers at least appear like LoTRO elves and not at all like the ugly alien/human hybrid elves of Skyrim and previous Elderscroll games going back 2-3 titles. (Elves in Arena and Daggerfall before Bethesda became prudish weren't as alien ugly as the recent releases)

That really just makes me want to play it more ;P

The same thing happened with GW2 - the interviews got people excited - they hyped the crap out of the game - then they whined incessantly afterwards. Let the hype die people - haven't y'all learned your lessons yet?

 I guessing that your opinion of a "true Elder Scrolls MMO" is different then many other peoples. While i too have my doubts it will be everything i would like in a Elder scrolls MMO I'm not so quick to blindly cast a verdict on it without even trying it. YMMV

*raises hand*

 

The combat and itemization sound really good, but I think confining pvp to a single zone will hurt this game replayability. I'm really concerned about his. I'm concerned from experience. Swtor, TSW, and GW2 tried this. As a pvpr these 3 games all lacked staying power.

When I eat chocolate chip pie it just doesn't feel like chocolate chip cookies. The texture, the consistency, it's just not the same and this is disappointing.

You should look up the definition of "Hype" before you type. It's why it is here, not for people to say nothing. lol

i gauruntee you those 3 games didnt lack staying power solely because pvp was confined to a single zone.

  rReally? you haven't read the GW2 forums here recently were people have played 1000 hours in the last 4 months, or post how GW2 is the Dominant game out these days. Granted these are 2 sides of the spectrum, but while I acknewledge GW2 has done well for itself i disagree its the Dominant game currently out. By the same token the majority of actual GW2 players are not Whining incessantly about it as you say.

  In the end just because you can't be happy or excited about any new game doesn't mean everyone else should be as sad and disappointed as you. Yeah too much unrealistic hype can be bad. Doesn't mean people with their feet on the ground can't still be hopefull.

so thats why a good portion of GW2 NA servers are ghost towns in just about every map. even including LA at near peak times. the only time most servers are populated are during an event when the achievement hunters come out of the wood works to get those seasonal achievements.

 

not saying the game is bad, like you said, it was successful. but that doesn't mean its anywhere near the top dog cause it isn't. in alot of areas of the game, you could say it is, but in staying power, it most definitely is not. and that is what really matters in mmo's, staying power, that thing in the game that makes you -want- to come back and play it day after day, or however much time you have to play it. WoW had it for me, EQ had it for me, Hell, even DOMO from aeria games had it for me(though not nearly to the extent as the other two) but GW2 failed in that regard.

 

Anyway, this is about ESO not GW2. Also the flipside of your last argument, just because you are happy/excited about any new game doesn't mean everyone else should be as happy and excited as you. I agree, to much unrealistic hype can be bad(and threads like this is what generally start the whole process). Doesn't mean people with their realistic views on an upcoming game can't still be hopeful.

I play GW2 -so talk to the hand.....

 

What I was saying is, people will read all sorts of things into these interviews then assume something that is not there. Then when they find out it is not, they go off the deep end being negative about the game and it's developers, when it was all them.

Obviously not. Humans are doomed to repeat history, not learn from it.

I make spreadsheets at work - I don't want to make them for the games I play.

This definitely doesn't sound or feel like a TSO game outside of the lore.... Will be interested to see how it developes. I'm hoping they don't lose the desire to explore that TSO games traditionally enable and encourage. Gotta say though, hopes are not high for this one, unfortunately.

Call me a cynic but it sounds like the same old story every in development MMO tells.
