these kind of posts are a cancer to these forums. no it is not as Daoc as you can get, its nothing like Daoc except for having 3 factions and similar style optional pvp.

you either need to get your facts straight and learn about this game before you post about it or stop trolling.

why are you so upset? I presented some arguments as to why I believe ZOS wants  to make a DAoC clone - and if you read the interviews you'll see that Matt's participation in Mythic is highlighted as proof of competence for the game's design. 

What are your arguments against ESO being a DAoc clone?

He's upset because, although you may think that what you're saying is new, it has been said hundreds of times in this forum over the past few months. Usually by people characterizing the DAoC-like influences (which are 3-sided combat and faction lock) as an evil perpetrated on the loyal TES community by unscrupulous, moneygrubbing "DAoC rejects."

Sorry to burst your bubble but your ideas are not original.

If you have not already adjusted your expections to modern MMOs, you probably should do so or you continue to be dissapointed.

My expections for ESO:

  • Lasts 2 to 3 months
  • Fun levelling with few good friends
  • Exploration of familiar worlf and lore
  • Expect to quit once run out of things to do.

UI beta graphic presets are unrepresentative until such time as you are running a graphics stress test.

One wouldn't run such a test at an Expo giving people 20 mins each - crashes would piss everyone off and defeat the object...

The animations however were possibly more representative - so I hope that aspect will be better at release - they were largely wooden and unrealistic.

Lastly, no-one can judge the state of gameplay from a PvE perspective (quest, combat etc.) with 20 minutes of gameplay in a beta where around 10% of your alocated time is spent making the character sleep...

Add beta, to starter area, to what appeared to be a confused and directionless player and we get an largely unrepresentative segment of video from which few conclusions (even interim conclusions) can be drawn.

No point being upset or delighted by this - it is extremely unlikely to significantly resemble the shipped product.

I never would have imagined that there would come a day when I could agree with one of your posts in its entirety. What next, world peace?

They may not be original, are they valid, however? As i said in another post, DAoC is not inherently bad, however it requires a sort of game design that's very alien to ES mentality.

A basic problem with your premise is that you are assuming there is one single "ES mentality" and that your interpretation of the term is correct. My own particular "ES mentality" has never seen any problem with 3-sided RvR or PvE area restrictions when they decided to bring a single-player franchise and adapted it for MMO play.

But then, I've been playing MMOs about as long as I've been playing TES games. I have opinions about what type of MMO I like that are totally independent from what single player games I like.

This part of the TES design--which is by no means all of it--is a welcomed change from the WOW-like focus of most AAA MMOs. I like it.

not upset, annoyed by all the misinformation that gets spread around here.

if you were talking about the pvp only i wouldn't say a word, yes they are using 3 factions and having one area dedicated to "rvr" like Daoc had, i get that and agree its like what Daoc had.

beyond that? i don't see anything similar to Daoc other than standard mmo elements.

based on the info that we have, if i was to compare this game to another already existing mmo, it would be GW2....even though its still hard to say.

Daoc didn't have combat anywhere near what TESO will have, the lore is nothing like it, graphic style, pretty much anything and everything we know right now about TESO is nothing like Daoc aside from the factions /area lock and the way they handle pvp (not the mechanics of it)

so when someone says "this is as Daoc as it gets" yes i do get annoyed by that.

by the way, i am an ex Daoc player and i would have a serious issue if they made TESO a Daoc clone, from a PVE standpoint.

so i understand the concern.

I saw the 20 min vid and could not beleive what I saw. It did look like junk and very generic in its gameplay. No way was this what I was expecting, and I was initially disapointed. But then taking things into consideration like it being in early beta, comparing to other betas I have been in, and lots of time until release, I'll still hold off judgement for now based on a crappy vid.

I ran into another vid of ESO from pax, the turtorial one with an Orc, and it essentially disproves (at leatst for me) a lot of what that 20min leak showed. google eso pax turorial video if you have not seen the vid I am refering to. The game looks beautiful and well done with ES elements.

A guy threw this link up on a form last night and said it was a WOW expansion. Started to play it on my 2nd monitor and didn't pay much attention. After a bit I realized it was definitely not WOW so I paid attention. My exact thought was "hmm looks like an older MMO that somehow missed my radar, wait, oh, it's TES."

The graphics don't look epic but I don't care about graphics. The gameplay looked ok. Nothing amazing, but ok. I may not like the direction TES has taken, but who knows, it might be a low res beta build or an old alpha etc. A lot of unknown factors. Did it look AAA, no, honestly, not really.

Gameplay level 1-10 doesn't mean a thing and I want to see proper RvR action and PvE-group combat before I jump to any conclusions. With that said, I was happy to see a fight with a mudcrab, nothing is more TES than mudcrabs.

HAHA that mudcrab almost handed him his ass too. Dude never used any of his abilities except the standard fireball. Yes the graphics looked rough, but most games don't put out the full polish until later versions so really can't look at that too much. Seems like they are trying to dial in the networking side of things still, only the second small beta so really nothing much to doom and gloom about yet. The gameplay looked smooth so far though.

Still need to see some PvP since that will be the reason I'm interested in this game the most. I'm sure the PvE will be fine, as long as its not easymode.

Only red flag I noticed was dude getting hit when nothing was actually hitting him. I hate that kind of gameplay where you take damage from objects that havent even collided with your character. Other then that it looks pretty eso to me in terms of world and character creation. I just hope dice rolls don't rule the day!

I expected very little, and it looks like that's what I'll get.  I'm not disappointed, in fact I'll probably save some money off of this.  Sorry if it offends anyone that the game looks cheap and ugly to me, it just does.

Coming from someone who doesn't care about RvR or the lore, I swear I've played this game half a dozen times already going by the lame, clunky combat footage.  Hopefully I'm wrong.

I will hold my judgement until I play it

But from what I've seen I was not disappointed, nor in awe, it was just so-so, alas I never held any expectation for this game tho

I will say I'm alittle disappointed. When I first heard Elder Scrolls Online, I had never played an Elder Scrolls game but immediately bought Skyrim and LOVED IT. Definitely missed out when it launched, but was glad to be able to still buy it and catch up to the times.

I expected Skyrim, but Online. Thats it. Dont change a thing. Tweak a few things here and there to better suit an MMO, but do whatever is possible, including inventing new systems, to make sure it stays as close to skyrim-like as possible.

Then came the info of RvR focused and DAoC-clone. I was immediately turned away because I began to see that the main focus of the developers was PvP and not PvE. Now I've seen all the debates about how PvE is expensive, time consuming, and gets eaten up by players way to fast to be kept up with by the devs. PvP is so much easier and players create their own content that way. First thing I thought of in that debate was, "ok, so basically PvP is a cop-out by devs, and....thats ok? by some players?"

Well not me. I'm a firm believer that PvP is a side-dressing to PvE. A side-dressing that is just as important as PvE but should never overshadow it. A 60/40 relationship in my eyes.

The thing I do find interesting is Cyrodil and how it seems to embody a perfect marriage of PvE and PvP. I find that great and hope it succeeds, but I believe someone needs to come in, kick Matt Firor's ass and say "No sir, you shall not make this RvR/PvP focused and you need to start bolstering the PvE alot more than you have been."

Removing the zone lock was a start, but far from finished. Next is remove all invisible walls. After that remove this whole instanced zoning 50+ and 50++ areas. I WANT to see a level 50 enemy go by me and see myself go, "Oh crap thats a 50, shit I hope he doesnt notice me."

If I don't wanna get attacked and ganked then I don't flag for PvP, simple as that.

I wasn't surprised at all.  I've played Oblivion only, from the Elder Scrolls series, and i knew what to expect, from the art-style to the combat.  This is what Elder Scrolls feels and looks like.  The only thing that disappointed me from that video, was the voice-overs; some of them didn't match up with the dialogue and npc's talking.  I'm not really concerned about the UI either, since that will be able to be modified with 3rd party mods.

The voices should definitely improve.  GW2's VO work was one of the last things to be changed, and as far as I know (and someone else mentioned), some of those NPC's aren't voiced by "people", they're using placeholder Microsoft Sam-type programs.  The VO work in the ES games was never my favorite, but it was definitely good.  I expect the same quality from ESO, if nothing else.

Sounds are very often fixed last by freelancers and such, bet that is the thing here. Yet I find it funny how I said this will be just another bland MMO, people bashed and hated on me just like when I said the same about GW2 and in just a short while they all go hyping the next game like it was the second coming of jesus or some shit. Hypetrain CHOO CHOO!

I find it more of a reason to "hate" on you because you're acting like predicting that people will jump on the next hype train is some kind of superpower, when I see it more as an inevitability.  Seriously, whatever your feelings about a game, everyone knows this already.

PS: Because you said a game was bland doesn't mean it was.  I know, I know.  Shocking how reality works.
