Please have a follow command where a player can follow anyone on his faction side.  This allows many players to enjoy the game by staying with a partner in combat in Player versus Environment (PvE) or Player versus Player (PvP).  Please do NOT make the mistake that some other MMO's have been making by not including this option.

By having this option in the game, the play style is open for many different types of players as well as those that don't care to use it.

I think they should not add follow command, because AFK, botting and multiboxing aren't desirable playing styles.

I have never been fine with taking away things from players because a small % use them for bad things. My wife often goes AFK to pee while she /follows me to where ever we are going. I think ESO staff can come up with better ways to stop botting, as I have seen games without follow still have bots following. 

/signed, I want /follow command!

I would hate to be leading a group of PUGs in AvA, walk into a battle only to find the mindless drones are all on follow.

Getting random pugs to listen is hard enough, don't make it even easier for them.

It would be nice in PvE when I have to leave to go afk real quick.

As seen in all major MMO's today, a follow command has nothing to do with AFKers or botters.  That's the mistake that many developers have made recently in some recent MMOs released last year.  Those MMOs were filled with bots even though there was no follow command.  The reason is because bots follow a path determined by the bot program, that is, there is no player at the keyboard.  Combatting bots is an entirely different subject which has absolutely nothing to do with whether or not an MMO should have a follow command.  

I plead with the game makers to NOT MAKE the same mistake recent game developers have made because of a badly informed player base.

Nothing wrong with two-boxing, i've two boxed in every MMO i've played but then it's always been PVE. I'm going to make a Khajiit male and female brother and sister on day of release for RP. There will be a follow feature especially if you are in the same group.

Two-boxing in windows mode without any third parties is how i do it, running to clients on my one system.

As long as it's disabled in PvP I have no problem with it. Too many people will just auto-follow the zerg and soak up points while AFK. In a capacity limited battleground/warzone/faction battle, that is not okay.

Many different types of players

E.g. buff bots, multi boxers, people paying farmers to level them

NO THANKS

That wont stop them, look at GW2 that removed the follow command and they still botted more then any MMO I have seen. /follow only helps players who play the game.

I'm ready to change my opinion a bit: Maybe they should add a follow command that would work max. 5 minutes and have 30 minute cooldown.

But aside from allowing people to take short breaks, I think follow command is bad for the game. People should not be given tools to be less attentive while playing.

I have never seen a great reason for /follow.  So I vote no.

Same, it promotes lazyness and on top of that it's abused way to much. 

 

On the other hand I do enjoy screwing with people that auto follow me. Was extremely fun in FFXI. Someone decides to go afk and auto follow me to town, take them to an a group of mobs and change gear (You blink when you change gear in FFXI) and watch them go running into them and die lol. 

 

In any case I vote no. Theres not a good arguement for it. It's a luxury and nothing more. It's not needed in any way shape or form and can be abused on top of simply being annoying.

It's a good tool to use as melee against kiters in PVP. Many including myself used it to great effect against riflemen, pistoleers and bh's  in SWG, I actually had it in one of my Macro's. follow, burst run, then one hand lunge was the exact macro. Never had a problem with ranged classes using it.

Who did wrong? The advertiser hired to sell the game or the consumer who put faith in advertising?

SWG let's you autofollow enemy pvp opponents? That seems wrong philosophically speaking. Or at least a good explination why I sucked.

And please add God mode, so i can't die. And please enable cheating like in single player games.  Follow command is must because i wan't somebody to follow me. For example if i see some asocial player  and he doesen't want to help me in some hard questing i type follow and he must  help me or i never let him go with command unfollow

using a mechnic = abusing a mechanic? I could have always just let the rifleman rape my mind pool I suppose.

Ya I agree, as much as I want a /follow command, I dont want oen in PvP. That should be about skill not macros. As for /follow in PvE, to all the people saying no, I hope you get every small bladdered player and forced to take many AFK breaks if we get no follow command. Sorry RL happens between Pee breaks and kids falling out of bed and /follow command keeps teams going. If a small population abuses this, the majority should not be punished.

Using a mechanic in an way thats unintended is abusing a mechanic, yes. I mean, how much different is auto follow for a melee chasing down a ranged character to someone in an FPS using auto aim?
