Interesting to see if the poll results in favour of the current game model will fall as low as 1/4.

It seems in steady decline as respondent number increase, and the last option is now in the ascendant.

This poll is all about perception.

One wonders if this is the kind of perception Zenimax wanted to engender?

 

Don't put to much stock in the poll results. The options are poorly constructed and biased in their phrasing so the last option is the only one that is even somewhat correct, hence it is coming out on top.

Hah! Got to love the people who instead of engaging directly on the issue, call the entire exercise into question without backing up their challenge for the same purpose as the more honest approach.

Sigh, there's only so much one can type while replying with a cell phone.  Predictably, I knew you'd call me out and I'd get a chance to do a more formal reply. (because it's obvious you're spoiling for a fight)

Three options stating TES with some DAoC thrown in an one with DAoC as the primary element - and the poll is bias?

I wasn't interested in having a control question where there was no DAoC at all - primarily because a chimp can work out where the DAoC is in the game.

This is about how well it's integrated, and as such, covers the extent of potential possibilities just fine.

TES with DAOC flawlessly integrated - Inaccurate and inflammatory, better way to state it might be TES with strong similarities to DAOC gameplay design.

TES with DAOC clumsily integrated - negative adjective and implies lack of competence, better might be TES with minimal DAOC integration

TES ruined by too much DAOC - Again, negative adjective, implies game will be bad if it is too closely like DAOC.  Might be different, doesn't go hand in hand that it will suck.. better might be Too similar to DAOC to be considered a TES MMO

DAOC using a popular IP to generate more sales - This was your only reasonable choice, however the way its phrased the implied message is that this is a bad thing.  It's a business decision, no value judgement necessary. A better way to do it might be DAOC based around a popular IP in order to generate more sales.

I disagree with your claims of bias, and would question your motives if there was the slightest chance of finding out what they truly are.

Most of your wording was unnecessarily inflammatory and inaccuate (IMO) and  I couldn't even pick one to vote on. (except maybe the last one)

If you would like to quote me some sociology research on the methodology of evidence gathering which is relevant to back yourself up - I'm all ears.

Oh stop, we're having a bit of forum PVP, no need to turn it into a college level debate team effort.

Otherwise a rejoiner is a waste of time wouldn't you say?

As to my motives, I just dont' like seeing people draw incorrect conclusions to support their position from flawed poll data.

That and I enjoy discussing MMO topics on these forums.

Heck, you do realize I agree with you, TESO isn't likely to be much of a TES MMORPG at all, in fact, it really won't be as much like DAOC as people seem to hope/expect.  There will be too many modern theme park designs incoporated into it to really be a decent representative of either concept.

Now whether that is a good or bad thing is entirely dependent on what your expectations are.  You are clearly disappointed (as I'm sure lots of TES fans are), can't say its anything I really want (I enjoyed DAOC's FFA PVP servers much more, RVR, not so much) but somewhere out there they'll likely find a target market.   Just probably not as large as they are hoping for.

 

Arrogant, Condescending, Dismissive, Elitist, "Meany", you speak as if these are bad things?

Couldn't bring myself to vote for any of the options as I don't agree with any of them.

Yes. the full quote makes much more sense than the two attempts to spin it above:

"We're making an MMO; we're unapologetic about that. This is the Elder Scrolls MMO. It's not Skyrim. Skyrim already exists, and you can go play Skyrim. We're making the MMO version of the Elder Scrolls, and with that comes some conventions that are different from a console RPG,"

That was after talking about TESO being a PC and Mac game but not for consoles...

1. MMO fans who will want one of the winning models we have come to know and love over the past 15 years and games with PvP in them tend to make more money and the fact its a TES games is not what decides if they will play this game.

2. TES fans who like to explore and do so without getting attcked by players because thats not in their game they play now.

3. MMO fans who are TES fans as well, who will nit pick this game to death to try and make it fit their vision.

So what MMO model that will make them the most money and let the people from box 2 still live in the same pool as everyone else and not hate eachother? Because no MMO that wants to make it, plans on making money just from current MMO fans, they hope to make new MMO fans. 4 Maps, 1 for PvP, 1 for each faction is one that can make group 1 and 2 very happy. Group 3 will never be happy, so why try? There is always going to be people from group 3 upset no matter what way ya do it.

As suggested in this thread having one open world with PvP everywhere, one open world where you can chose to flag PvP (lots of jurks know how to force you to flag so they can kill you, just stand next to you killing NPCs and one AE spell and you get to kill them, one of many ways to do that) all this would make most players from pool 2 not happy as a new fan and that would make this game a fail. IMO ESO did the right model for the game. We from pool 3 here on this forum are only one third of the target but we think we should be 80% of what decides what goes where. Look at the poll we win!!!!! LOL Noooo sorry. 

I think they hit the nail on the head for this game with what model they picked and its one on many a MMO forum we PvP fans have been asking for, over and over again. Every new 2 faction game that comes out, lots of us keep saying... "Needs a 3rd faction. Pls look back to DAoC they did it right!!!" I think this will pull lots of people from pool 1 as well.

If they try and follow the 3rd pool, we will have a new game every week!!!! 

4. DAoC fans who will take things out of context to try and defend their little nugget of happiness.

5. Suckers who blindly flock to the next big MMO and throw money at it until they've filled the hole in their meaningless lives.

Seriously, some of you're descriptions sound about as retarded as 4 & 5.  TES fans do not want the game designed to our vision but we want ESO to be in TES' vision.  I am only speaking my mind about what defines TES for me.

What does this have to do with my right to make a judgement on ESO with the information we have so far?

Matt Firor: "You said the thing that is the most important. It is the franchise that we are taking online, not the single-player game. The single-player games are still the single-player games. We're taking the license and the franchise online and doing something with it that hasn't been done before, much like the Elder Scrolls novels. But all of those concerns are valid by the community until they actually see it and play it. We've taken a lot of effort to make the lore consistent and make sure that it's the experience that they expect. The places they can go, the characters they can play and the enemies are all based very much on the world that they know, and that's where it works."

Afterall there would be no point in the IP if you didn't want to have people would loved Skyrim buying your game.  What I did find interesting is he is telling people to wait and play the game, so don't preorder.

The more I think about it this game would've been much more accepted if Zenimax just used a new IP.  Seeing the phrase "From the creator's of The Elder Scrolls" would've hyped it up just as much, they would've had another IP to market and no one would've held it to TES standards.

Long way of saying, your and my input mean very little. ESO devs have spent a lot of time working out what model will get them the most money and make the game that will net them the most fans, MMO or TES based. You and I are group 3 and as much as we make the most noise, most in that group will buy the game no matter what and as long as they make the game awesome, we will stay be it WoW model or DAoC or any other. You think they made a bad move with the model they picked, but looking at the 3 groups I listed, it will net the most gain IMO and fits the needs of TSE turned into ESO best as a whole. Voice all ya like, buy or dont buy the game. But we know if you are from group 3 and most likely you are, you are going to buy the game no matter what.

I'm not buying the game (unless they make some serious changes) nor did I sign up for beta.  You are right, our opinion has little impact on their direction.  I just hope we create enough of a commotion that MMO developers will think twice before giving us another generic game.

And I am here to make enough noise they dont. Been waiting for a game just like this for a long time. Great lore and story, huge freedom in classes and rolls, 3 faction PvP, PvE area with no PvP so my wife is happy and we can both agree on this game. If they add player housing they can take my money now. Keep up the good work is all I have to say as of now!!!!!

We'll just have to wait til release (or after beta) to see.  I'm happy for you though, I don't want to take away your cheese.

Im not worried anyone can, 6 years in development and I am sure by now quests, story, dungeons and much more are all designed with one faction on one map in mind. Whats being asked here would most likely cost millions of bucks to do and IMO lose more fans. You get my idea why on the posts I made last page.

As much as I would like to see the MMO version of TES that I have dreamed of, I'm ok with settling for this (for now, anyways). As the tired saying goes, don't like it then don't buy it. What's that other one? If you want it done right, do it yourself.

How about this for a change - If you don't like what you're reading, then don't read it.

Mhm.

I think I will take your advice.

Perhaps you should take it yourself.

I'm out of this pointless thread.

a poll that only give options that point at same answer is not a poll but a cheap excuse for the person who made it to justify what they think

If I do a poll about what shade of dark the colour black is, would you insist I put in a choice which said it wasn't dark, and accuse me of bias if I didn't?

Please - I already said I didn't put a control question in because it would be pointless.

I presume you know what that is?

Bias...

Why don't you put a post on telling everyone there isn't any DAoC whatsoever in this game so we can mock your 'astute observation'.

That is what you are saying right - or are you in fact pro DAoC and bias yourself?

As my post below explains - I am taking a position as one would in a debate - and I encourage you to take the opposite position and try to do anything but look foolish trying to defend the indefensible.

Interesting to see if the poll results in favour of the current game model will fall as low as 1/4.

It seems in steady decline as respondent number increase, and the last option is now in the ascendant.

This poll is all about perception.

One wonders if this is the kind of perception Zenimax wanted to engender?

 

Don't put to much stock in the poll results. The options are poorly constructed and biased in their phrasing so the last option is the only one that is even somewhat correct, hence it is coming out on top.

Hah! Got to love the people who instead of engaging directly on the issue, call the entire exercise into question without backing up their challenge for the same purpose as the more honest approach.

Sigh, there's only so much one can type while replying with a cell phone.  Predictably, I knew you'd call me out and I'd get a chance to do a more formal reply. (because it's obvious you're spoiling for a fight)

Three options stating TES with some DAoC thrown in an one with DAoC as the primary element - and the poll is bias?

I wasn't interested in having a control question where there was no DAoC at all - primarily because a chimp can work out where the DAoC is in the game.

This is about how well it's integrated, and as such, covers the extent of potential possibilities just fine.

TES with DAOC flawlessly integrated - Inaccurate and inflammatory, better way to state it might be TES with strong similarities to DAOC gameplay design.

TES with DAOC clumsily integrated - negative adjective and implies lack of competence, better might be TES with minimal DAOC integration

TES ruined by too much DAOC - Again, negative adjective, implies game will be bad if it is too closely like DAOC.  Might be different, doesn't go hand in hand that it will suck.. better might be Too similar to DAOC to be considered a TES MMO

DAOC using a popular IP to generate more sales - This was your only reasonable choice, however the way its phrased the implied message is that this is a bad thing.  It's a business decision, no value judgement necessary. A better way to do it might be DAOC based around a popular IP in order to generate more sales.

I disagree with your claims of bias, and would question your motives if there was the slightest chance of finding out what they truly are.

Most of your wording was unnecessarily inflammatory and inaccuate (IMO) and  I couldn't even pick one to vote on. (except maybe the last one)

If you would like to quote me some sociology research on the methodology of evidence gathering which is relevant to back yourself up - I'm all ears.

Oh stop, we're having a bit of forum PVP, no need to turn it into a college level debate team effort.

Otherwise a rejoiner is a waste of time wouldn't you say?

As to my motives, I just dont' like seeing people draw incorrect conclusions to support their position from flawed poll data.

That and I enjoy discussing MMO topics on these forums.

Heck, you do realize I agree with you, TESO isn't likely to be much of a TES MMORPG at all, in fact, it really won't be as much like DAOC as people seem to hope/expect.  There will be too many modern theme park designs incoporated into it to really be a decent representative of either concept.

Now whether that is a good or bad thing is entirely dependent on what your expectations are.  You are clearly disappointed (as I'm sure lots of TES fans are), can't say its anything I really want (I enjoyed DAOC's FFA PVP servers much more, RVR, not so much) but somewhere out there they'll likely find a target market.   Just probably not as large as they are hoping for.

 

I am taking a DEBATING position - I am not trying to prove a hypothesis.

In criticising my methodology - it is you who turned it into a 'college debate'.

To debate reasonably and honestly against my position you would have to take the opposing view - something like this;

"I contend that the TES IP - including its lore, appearance, functionality and gameplay experience is the primary design factor in the locking of factions (including those races so designated) and the 3-way PvP model currently in-game as stated. This has nothing to do with DAoC, and there are no significant similarities to suggest any of the key elements in the success of previous TES games has been negatively impacted by the restrictions put on playfield access and automatic faction allocation on single characters.

You see how from the opposing argument the idea that DAoC, faction lock et al hasn't occurred, seems absolutely ridiculous.

I take it to be self-evident (as do a great many other people - on both sides of the argument) that DAoC design choices have been forced into the mix and important TES elements have been erased from the game due to the way they have intergrated it. It is as clear as the nose on my face.

Are you REALLY saying otherwise?

If so - prove it please - I would very much like to see you try.

Why should anyone have to prove anything when you have proven nothing? All you're doing is repeating your exagerations over and over. Repetitive nonsense using loaded language does not make it so.

"self evident blah, blah... forced blah blah... erased...blah, blah"

All that you or anyone else knows for sure is that TESO will have 3-sided RvR similar to GW2 and DAoC and that a developer who used to work on DAoC is developing this...and so is guy who used to work on Ultima and god knows who else who used to work wherever.

There is no evidence that this RvR will even play like DAoC's-- just suppositions on your part since none of us have played it.

It's just you and a couple of others who keep inserting yourselves into every thread in this forum whining about TESO not being Skyrim-like (Darkfall is btw....go play that.) People have spent 6 years developing TESO in a way other than how you would do it. Get over it.

You're just adding to the irelevant noise in this forum providing evidence of nothing...because you can't.

oh look... its another tes / daoc poll by our friendly neighbor Caliburn!

And another one pointless also made only to see people at eachother's necks about TES vs DAoC and how will it be.

Look... design has been decided. Just drop it. Its not going to change and thats great. Listen a TES game with a DAoC layout is the best thing to happen in the mmo industry since 2001.

'blah, blah'

'whining'

Quite apart from your 'automated' and factually thin opposition to everything I say, on every thread I say it - which is fine I suppose, in a rather 'e-stalker' sort of way...

... could you at least stop trying to insult me with childish characterisations of what I am saying.

I would like to keep the duscussion to the arguments and not the individuals if you can manage that.

Thank you...

Oh and a belated and heartfelt thanks for helping to keep my thread top of the board - much appreciated...
