Well... by instanced you dont justify the PvP, as the PvP is consistent lasting up to several months withouth resets..

 

The size of the PvP area is mindblowing as it is 8 fullblown zones, also including lots of PvE activities.

Does it have player looting in these ? I will participate in PvP if it is consensual and without player looting. No open world PvP then I will play.

No, it's the more civilized type of PVP death: you lose no items nor coin.

I don't know if the enemy can loot some random generated "other stuff" from your warm corpse like in GW2, but your own death penalty will be loss of time, possibly having to hike it back to the battle (if you don't get rezzed) and a possible amount of item damage that you'll need to repair. Think DAoC RvR.

I know that sadomasochistic hipsters won't be happy with this, but it's my preferred way too

Hi Paul,

 

Thanks for taking the time to come here and answer questions.

 

There seems to have been a lot of talk lately about whether ESO is a real MMO prompted by some statements you guys made last month about it being playable as a single player experience. I've been following the development of the game closely for several months and I don't see any changes in the design of the game.

 

Can you explain why the shift in emphasis on how you describe the game?

I think this has to do with how we approach development. We were worried that the term MMO had become synonymous with a certain type of game with an almost exact set of rules. That was definitely a perception we felt, even internally. But we really wanted to be true to our IP first, and still have this amazing social game with thousands of players online. When I started on UO, MMO was a new term and there weren't limits on it. We don't dislike the term or the association, we love it. We just want to make sure people aren't expecting it to be a clone of certain games.

Nowhere did he say the game was an MMO though.

Its not a real MMO.  It is a multiplayer ES game.

Rofl...whatever. 

 

So...what is happening in Cyrodiil? Is that not MMO enough for you?

 

Maybe you can give us your definition of MMO and how it differs from a multiplayer game...in your own words.

It's just a marketing decision to call it like that, of course it' not much different from any other MMO. They think their game is too good to be named with games like GW2, SW:TOR, ArcheAge, TSW and so on. They want to form a new genre. The super duper massive multiplayer game with singleplayer options - short SDMMGS.

Of course it's just hype. Amazing how some are taking the hype to heart and thinking it means something.

I can almost tell you to the day, when the in late May Zmax mouthpieces (specially Paul Sage--Matt Firor seems to be a bit embarrased about the new hype) started emphasizing that it's "just like all other TES games but online with friends!"

Nothing had changed with respect to game features at all...all that changed was their spin.

However, haters, trolls and the uninformed all seized on that and started going on about how it's not an MMO.

MMOs aren't primarily single player experiences.

Sorry, but that is just the way it is.

most MMOs are what you make of them. Yes, I agree that a lot of folks play them as single player games, but in most out there you can group if you want to, PVP with others if you want to, engage in crafting and the economy with others if you want to, usually there is content that requires others, but yea, there is a large audience out there that likes to treat MMOs as single player but still be able to chat with others or see others for whatever reason. I prefer all forms at different times.

There Is Always Hope!

Problem with that is you have no clue if ESO will be primarily a single player experience. They said you "can" go through it by yourself, but that capability doesn't automatically make it mostly single player.

That is like saying if you never get help from anyone in real life, and do everything yourself, that the world isn't massive. The number of players are still there despite what you decide to do. This is why the game is called an MMO. Massive Mutiplayer Online, means exactly how it sounds. It isn't 100% necessary to get help from others.

Chances are though, most people will gather parties. Why? Unlike other MMOs, the loot is obtainable despite no matter how many you have in your party. You do not lose out on items. I imagine you would not lose out on much if any experience either. Meaning their is no loss involved, and you only gain. The gain is dungeons are quicker, funner, and more entertaining with a group.

I personally love MMOs, but I am a lone wolf. I like doing things myself as much as possible. That doesn't mean I ALWAYS play alone. That is why it's still an MMO at the end of the day. I still like meeting people. I still like dungeon runs with a party once in a while. I like to do some pvp now and then. If you experience the entire game all alone, you simply have major problems. That isn't the devs fault, that would be the persons fault for being socially retarded.  Just because some people are socially retarded, doesn't mean this isn't an MMO.

That isn't the devs fault, that would be the persons fault for being socially retarded.  Just because some people are socially retarded, doesn't mean this isn't an MMO.

I like questing with one other person and leveling up that one character together for normal PVE. I always look to connect with one other person since Im not married who is into that kinda thing and supplements my west coast evening time frame :-), but I also like finding others to do group stuff with and I prefer the PVP to be massive, not scenarios. I usually join a guild for chatting or guild type events. Then I normally create an alt when whoever I play with isn't there and solo stuff until that other person is around. I guess I'm a good target for the game. I do hope they have some time of dynamic event system for sometimes joining in with others though, but not a deal breaker for me.

a bad choice for soe ,to make such a cartoony and ugly graphic. No one say to make it real life like soe maybe but at least decent and not cartoon ,was the thing

OP, an mmo company can make their mmo the most visually realistic possible (a mirror of real life if you want to say that) BUT the game WILL SUCK HORRIBLY if they put more resources into the graphics and forget about game mechanics. Therefore, making a gorgeous looking game full of gameplay limitations.

 

We have seen this a lot already, companies making realistic and even stylized ones that have over the top graphics being pretty but beyond mediocre products because they didnt put enough resources and effort into the rest of the game.

 

I hope Zenimax take both sides into account before we end up with just another beautiful but awfully limited game.

And this game is supposed to launch next summer

 

I have no faith in this game at all, it animates like a stop motion clay movie with the hiccups. Hell AOC animates better than this game and how many years ago did that come out?

This seems to contradict those who sat in front of the PC and played it. Have you?

I have to agree with this, despite my love for ES lore. I am ready for innovation and freedom in an mmo, riding on the rails is getting old.

Well I know they're not going to have player housing at launch, which tells me a little about what they consider important and not important. Apparently the player isn't going to rank very high in their thought process. The old level system grind is in place, which is an especially weak ground for innovation.
