I didn't really mind the leaked video.  The fonts were old and the graphics were woefully outdated and the gameplay looked really, really bad....but that guy was level one and maybe a lot of the UI stuff were placeholders.  Might be wishful thinking.

 

Actually the game world and the feel of the game reminded me of EQ running through the Ro Desert area, or AOC.  That is not horrible.  It was not Skyrim though and did not look or feel like Skyrim, but the area was a desert and the guy was a caster.

 

I don't have any real hope for this game.  No one really wants a TES MMO.  The fans of the single player games will not like the massive restriction and reduced freedom, while the MMO fans do not want another WOW clone or GW2 clone, which is likely what this will end up being.

 

This will just be a stop gap MMO on the wait for EQ Next.

Social interaction and community are pre-WoW constructs.  Unfortunately, it's only important to those of us that played MMOs before WoW existed and we are a small minority.

I remember stating that making this was going to be next to impossible, it looks like I am going to be right on target.

I played the last weekends beta. The game looks very nice on highest settings. The skill and talent leveling is pretty cool. I did not like the Skyrim style combat though. It felt very clunky.

Which does the rest of us absolutely zero good since you can't confirm that.

This article could have been written about any MMO that's come out lately based on their pre-release hype.

HOW is ESO different from GW2 and other MMOs, though?  It seems like there is questing (you can wear a pirate costume, hurray.. doesn't make it monumental or unique though), exploring (whatever that means, it's a pretty broad term) and doing things "your way" (exact same goal with an optional path possibly?).

I don't understand why the hype for this is so high after all the games that keep burning people. I see very little "promised" that seems new or exciting. It sounds like Skyrim is being downgraded into an MMO.

So where is the innovation, creativity and industry shake up? When do we get those articles? Will we ever get them with this game, or is it just designed to be an MMO for MMO sake?

I didn't mind the leaked video actually. The guy playing it is a terrible goofball of a player who destroys any cohesion there is and the way he plays would make anything look bad. I certainly don't understand how people can say the graphics were bad. I actually was very impressed with it, especially with water, but then again it could be because i was very worried it would look plastic and horrible like swtor since it uses hero engine.

 

But that font and ui... my god that font is the most horrible thing i've seen in any mmo. Maaaaybe it would be good for Fallen Earth but if you think you can use something like that for a TES game, just gtfo this very second. It shouldn't be there even as placeholder. UI sucked too and i'm sure these things will get reworked anyway. Aside from that i don't understand what people are complaining about. Did you think there would be no mob killing? No map markers? No resurrecting at a shrine? What were you thinking? What is it that you saw in that video that made you go batshit really?

"its open world maps", "Elder Scrolls has really presented the “play how you want” mentality"

Outright lies, arent we beyond this point for this game?

Anyone that is going to believe it are already fans of the game...and everyone that doesnt, isnt going to touch this game. The people you are trying to win over will not have the wool pulled over their eyes and the TES fan outrage is not going to be slowed down by your pretending that 3 closed off realms and a PvP zone can be "opne world" and they sure as hell wont listen to anyone telling them that they can play how they want when the entire game is not only on a guiderail funneling them into the central PvP zones, but they cant even chose the race/faction they want.

 

Play as you choose means I can play a human, that was enslaved by the Dominion, eventually freed to turn on my captives after I find out that humans have their own kingdom and are fighting my masters.

But I digress, that kind of play as I want is reserved for actual roleplaying games not trapped in a 13 year old MMO box.

^ Don't forget that it's not really open world either.  You have to go to a special map to PvP and everything else is phased or instanced, meaning you won't even be seeing half of the people that are technically right in front of you.  That's my biggest problem apart from the combat (ie: the phasing, not the PvP map... I kind of like that part).

FFS im not even interested in the game but im sick of such remakrs.

 

I watched the video, while graphics were no FFXIV:ARR, they were still MODERN.

In case some of you forgot recent mmo titles: SWTOR, Defiance, GW2.

The graphics in all 3 are mediocre at best so why all the sudden the rage about this games leaked video?  People sometimes...

I really dont see how this could be considered a WoW or GW2 clone.  All the main aspects are being taken from ES.  the only clone part could be coming from Darkage of Camelot.  Which people actually want.    WoW and GW2 dont have an active defense system and their combat is all based off cool down timers.  TESo follows DAOC with the stamina and magika bar management, there are no colldown abilities.  It also follows the 3way world fight and is giving the feel that you need to protect your lands from the enemy alliances.  the cyrodiil zone will offer EVERYTHING and have its own progression system so people can keep improving their characters after max level.  We have been asking for an MMO like this for a long time.  The elderscrolls world and combat just makes it that much better.

I hope this leaked video scared some of the kids away... Sadly that is money taken from the game but maybe a better community of Elder Scrolls Fans... 

 

For myself the only thing i saw in that video was:

A guy who did NOT play proberly.

A nice and CLEAN userinterface.

The elder scrolls world in it's beauty.

A GREAT character creation screen with alot of finesse.

Great voice acting.

some sorcerrer spells that looked exactly as they did in ESO's videos...

Some bugs showing that it is BETA.

And alot of rage comments.

As far as the UI is concerned, I believe all TES user interfaces were completely terrible, especially if you play the game on a PC.  That being said, I didn't think the graphics were all that terrible, but they certainly werent at Skyrim level of quality... Maybe Oblivion.  Still, it looks graphically better than GW2 as far as their environments go (GW2's character models are still superior).  Gameplay?  Well honestly the combat looked clunky just like all the other TES titles.  No surprise there really.  

The one thing I hope they get right... and this is going to be their biggest challenge, is the feeling of player choice.  You should be able to start the game, start exploring, and have an epic adventure without following on-rails quests.  That's always been the strength of TES games is the sandbox feel.  The UI and combat have always been sub-par IMO.

Elder Scrolls games are about immersion and exploration. You can have decent combat and many would still love Elder Scrolls games. These guys at Zenimax have it all backwards.
