Yeah I'm putting this one on my buy list.

The things I like so far are:

The integrity of the developers - this goes a long way with me having trusted other devs who changed things. All I read about these guys is how they have a vision to deliver and how the integrity of the game is important. Even if it means they will get less money possibly going sub instead of free. I do hope it works out for them because I would like a regular game and one that likes being a sub game is great news for me. I'm willing to reward them for their decision by staying subbed as long as they please me. I'll probably give them some of my time by casting gameplay, making videos, or guides. I've done those things before for games I fancied and if this one is an underdog, I know how to spread the word.

The end game having the option to PVP in a rich setting instead of a capture the flag scenario. Siege weapons make me school girl giggly. I want to throw flaming chunks of debris at my enemy and watch their walls crumble. I want to see them defend their property and fight me back. I want warfare without human lives lost. I want to get the chance to be an Emperor though I doubt my keystrokes will be fast enough to compete, I like the opportunity. Having 3 factions fighting makes it all the more exciting - is the team incoming on our two way fight going to help us or help them or attack both and how will we react along with our competitors. At any moment someone who served as a short term friend can suddenly become an enemy. I want to be friend or foe at the drop of a hat because I want to win. Did I mention I'm competitive lol

What is a con so far for me is the lack of a global auction house and the concern that I can't sell crafted items regularly but I believe with a subscription game the developers are going to be interested in feedback instead of planning what goes into the cash shop next. That I won't be able to find out until the game is released and we start interacting but if they can be cajoled I can turn on the charm if needed and goodness knows I'm a thorough researcher so I can bring data to support most anything. There is a chance too that I will enjoy their system of trading - again, I can't tell until I play it.

I do wonder if it will have enough sandbox for me since it won't release with housing or associated tchotchkis but if that comes up on a to do list, it would be something to look forward to. I did read that they were having fishing and I didn't know that previously so more things may become known to me as I search around.

There has been no confirmation on a release date with Wildstar.  I realize it seems the betting money is on June time frame. Then again, it doesn't mean its 100% confirmed to be launching at that month.

Reasons I'll be playing.

1. Great top end gaming graphics game with lots of detail.

2. The Lore Master of all elder scrolls games is doing the storyline.

3. An A+ rated company, great customer service.

4. RPG

5. History of the game series and level of quality they had. 

6. Adults my age are making the game.

7. Hopes this is the One true mmo to rule them all (without hope there is nothing)

8. It wil give me something to do for 6 months if its horrible, and years if its not.  This has a chance to be one of the biggest games, who wouldn't want to atleast play it to end game first?

9.  Most games do not get good until the first update.  So I like to get to end game and wait until then to judge a game fully.

10.  I love MMORPG's.  ES is a founder in the RPG world, must have for all RPG fans.

Definite maybe. Might not be at launch though, might wait a bit and let them flesh it out a bit.

No, but when the price drops to 10 or 20 bucks after a month or two I will.

Is this the new overhyped game that is supposed to save the mmo genre? I thought swotor and gw2 did that already.

I put no.  I'll be playing other games then.  I likely will pick it up when it goes on sale (or even F2P) later down the road.  I think it's decent enough to playthrough for some enjoyment for a month or two, but I don't see the lasting appeal beyond that aside from PvP.

Raptr link because it's the cool new trend:

I'm going to be playing at launch as well.  I can careless about reviews. I'll make my own opinion of it once I start playing. I love the TES series and to have an MMO based off that world is going to be amazing. I can't wait.

swotor is star wars, which is really more of a mmo-scifi, never played it because of that.

gw2, dint seem like a true rpg to me, was a mix of weird rpg to me, never played that either because of it.

Now, games like everquest, lotro, final fantasy, ESO.   These kind of games are the kind of games that have some strong RPG founding roots in them, the kind where the nerd rolls the dungeon and dragons dice feel to it, with the exception of FF which is kinda different but because they were part of the founding RPG on the videogame world and had success, I threw them in there.

 

The game companies who made or making these game titles also have huge cash behind them from successful game series, or were made during the birth of RPG.   That's why ESO isn't just some flavor of the month like swotor or gw2 was.  These games listed have histories and styles that true RPG fans since the birth of RPG has been created will gravitate to and make them huge titles.

I was on the fence regarding to try this game at release or wait and see. However, the hostility towards it that emerged lately made me more curious. So, I am now leaning towards buying it when released.

I have to admit, I've been a huge Elder Scrolls fan ever since I first played Morrowind years ago. However, after having played the beta for TESO, I am very disappointed. For me, the game didn't feel like an Elder Scrolls game. It felt more like Rift or GW2 with Elder Scrolls artwork. I understand the limitations of an mmo compared to an open ended console game where you can pick up every item you see, but during my experience in beta there was one thing that really was turn-off for me:

you can't swim underwater.

That's right, you can only swim on the surface of the water. Gone are the days of slaughter fish attacking you as you try to get that underwater chest or needing a water breathing potion to reach a sunken ship or door. Considering the fact that I started out in an area dominated by water... this was a major game breaker. Part of the appeal of making an Argonian  in previous games was the water breathing racial ability... no need for it here.

 

Don't get me wrong, the music is top notch and graphics aren't horrible, but it just doesn't feel enough like an Elder Scrolls game for me to buy it. Seems like they would have been better off making a new console game with a multiplayer option.

1, with all due respect "that is what beta is for". For some reason some people think a beta is about the finished product. Sure, there are some betas that are just about stress testing and advertisement so it's confusing when you are in a "BETA" and things don't work.

Where the statement "it's still beta" is not valid is where some people think the game is going to be a completely different entity, different game, than the one they are playing. But as far as technical bits that has to be ok otherwise "don't play beta".

I can't begin to tell you the amount of stupid comments and complaints I saw in beta from people who really didn't know why they were there and who were confounded by "a beta".

2, No Raids? Of course there are no raids. No Arenas? Of course there are no Arenas.No Battlegrounds? Of course there are no Battlegrounds. No player housing? Comme ci, comme ça, most games don't launch with housing and it makes sense to pour their efforts into their major efforts such as the adventure zones and pvp area ...

All of the pvp is in the Cyrodiil area as that is what pvp is about. This game is about territory control. There are no raids because who would you raid, Dagoth Ur?

 

The problem I see with your statement is you are looking for WoW 3.0. Besides the issues that this game "may or may not" have, being different a bit is not one of them.

There's plenty of content here. Whether you like it or not is an entirely different animal.
