After seeing the results of Lords Poll, I can see now WHY its the most anticipated game of the year.   Atleast 80% are going to buy it or unsure about it.  

http://www.mmorpg.com/discussion2.cfm/thread/403072/So-are-we-happy-poll.html

Um .. where in the world did you get that 80% from?

As of this post, 42% chose "Yes, I am going to play for sure". 16.5% chose " I don't have enough information to have an opinion.

So again .. how did you get that 80% exactly? First of all, chances are that 16.5% is going to be split in half, those who do decide in the end the game is good enough and those who decide not to play.

 

If we look at the poll, it looks more to be half and half which is what I would expect it to be. You really need to learn better math, cause I still don't understand how you got 80%. Either that, or maybe you read the poll wrong, in which case then you really need to learn how to read better.

 

Either that or you are in fact truly delusional as I have stated in a past thread. Seeing things that are not there are we?

 

Edit: Truth of the matter is, you are probably trolling. In which case ... I can imagine you must be a very immature person.

That's a lot of insults, just to be wrong. There's only one No answer on that poll, everything else is yes or undecided.

A game about to be released so far cant out hype A couple of sandboxes and a space sim and another warhammer game. The only people anticipating this game are the websites paid to advertise it. And Forbes anticipates it to be a flop. Indeed this website seems to have a meaningless "article" on this game once a week just to knock it up a few points, but its still falling behind in like 13th place now.  A couple  of guys in their basement could have modded GW2 and reskinned it and we would essentially have the same thing, I just dont know what the big deal is.

Self says....NEVAH!!!

Oh..just wanted to be sure....then I go check on the most anticipated games on MMORPG and I noticed....hmm...not even in the top 5 you say? ....well now /churchlady....isnt that special.

 

 

Yeah...amazing what advertising dollars can manage.

Yes,  and two years after launch it's the second most successful MMO which includes a subscription option.  Bodes well for ESO, doesn't it?

yeah, when people try to compare it to SWTOR that doesn't really deter me. i still play and enjoy that game from time to time.

besides, my personal biggest gripe with SWTOR is the pvp and TESO's pvp is nothing like it, it's actually pvp that i tend to like more.

this game is going to be a success compared to other mmo's. the only real question is it's longevity but that will be a question mark for every single MMO that comes out from here on out.

LOL what?!

SWTOR couldnt win a contest for best used pancake much less second best mmorpg.

Youre saying its better than EVE hell I  would rather play AION, even GW2,TERA, SEcret world, RIFT are obviously better I can think of some dead games I would rater play maybe WAR.

he's saying it's the second most successful mmo (not exactly sure how accurate that is but it's close), not the second best. the former being a factual statement than the latter an opinion.

IMO i don't think GW2 or EVE is better by the way, i just couldn't get into those games personally.

You actually cant measure success of MMos in a reliable way..

 

but yes SWTOR is currently the MMO with the 2nd highest number of subscriptions in the western world, about 500k subs on 2M players. Which has been constant for about the last year...

 

they currently have a yearly revenue of close to €100M which is not to bad i would say...

 

 

but then all the elitist doomsaysers thats allways around to say doom to any game obviously think that if their elitist kind of players does not play a game, then it must be a fail..  Good to know that they are a minorrity and that gamedesigners dont listen to such a small minorrity or we woud still be stuck with UO and maybe EQ

Best MMO experiences : EQ(PvE), DAoC(PvP), WoW(total package) LOTRO (worldfeel) GW2 (Artstyle and animations and worlddesign) SWTOR (Story immersion) TSW (story) ESO (character advancement)

when it comes to the measurement of success, its all about sales and the amount of people that play and enjoy your game.

there isn't any other way to measure it because everything else is just based off personal opinion, a lot of times biased opinion.

I'm not looking forward to the plethora of "this game is terrible" posts we'll no doubt get after clueless people bought TESO at launch.

I look at it this way; once the game has actually launched, the people who enjoy it will be too busy playing to come here and read those posts, and therefore won't care about them, while the people who don't enjoy the game will be having a wonderful time because everybody who is posting will agree with them, and they'll think that means *everyone* agrees with them.  Win/win, everybody is happy.

I don't know if I count "very much in doubt" as being a category of unsure. That "very much" part changes everything. If someone asks if I was going to buy a game and say I am very much in doubt, it means it's not likely that I will. It's almost like a form of saying no, but there is a small chance that could change.

Not to mention to include all the "not sure" people along with those who will buy the game is rather unfair because you have no clue which way these people will face when the time comes. For now .. all these people should be assumed to be split in half. Just as I have said in my last post.

As for the "That's a lot of insults" part. No offence, but this person has been going around ,what I pretty much would consider, trolling. As for being wrong .. no im not wrong .. it all has to do with how those choices are interpreted. I saw the very much in doubt as a no answer. Just sayin.

I might put actual stock in what Forbes, CNN and MTV (lol ok I never put stock in what they say) if there weren't just shells of what they formerly were. They are nothing more than twitter/social media feedback collectors dishing out news like McDonalds focus groups the population in order to find out what new poison they can feed the masses.

 

Last I checked news happens ... then it is reported. It isn't dissected and modified until acceptable by a majority audience. I can't trust their reporters when all they are concerned with is total viewership. I can turn to the BBC and watch their analysts rip new arse holes in everyone they point their attention at in order to get the real story. I watch American news and what I mostly see is carefully constructed  stories trying to suck up to their audience like sitcoms during sweeps week.

You stay sassy!

So the last time you checked was in what decade?  It's been a long time since "news" people in America actually reported the facts, rather than spinning them to fit whichever demographics corporate tells them make up most of their channels audience.

The question is if ESO is most anticipated because it is really good or because all the other MMO releases 2014 seems rather bad.....

No, I have not really made up my mind what I think about ESO yet (need to play it for a few weeks for that) but I must say that 2014s lineup seems rather weak. I doubt we see WoDO, Class 4 or EQN this year and besides them and this the MMOs I do have some information about seems pretty weak.

In fact lately have my list for MMOs I wait for to release shrunk pretty badly, I hope we get a few new interesting games announced soon. Then again, it might just be me that has become more cynical now.
