I believe in life before death... So dont forget to enjoy it while you still can.

I think the only thing  you need to perform at the island is the single step of the main story quest...

Yep, good news. Now they should put it in for pvp too

That might cause too much lag/issues.

What the fuck is the point of collision detection if its not in PvP?

I find this a bit funny.    If all people had to complain about the game was the starter zone lockouts....    Why not let them complain till closer to launch about it and then have that fixed so they have nothing else small to find to complain about.

 

People complained that the imperial race was not in game so what did they do, they held off on the CE release date till as long as they could.  

 

Keep people focused on small complaints till launch and they wont find any other small complaints to complain about till launch.

Indeed. Collision detection doesn't matter in PVE, it's in PVP where it matters.

I like that they have added it in, if it's true, but they added it to the wrong game mode in my opinion.

to all of you happy that you can skip the starter islands ask yourselves...

1. how many skill points are you going to miss

2. why did zeni also increase the mob difficulty starting at level 5

Collision detection with NPCs just got put in.
You can also now skip the starter islands and go straight to the first city in your area. You can port back to starter islands if you want.
Mob difficulty increase slightly starting at level 5.
Buffs and nerfs to class abilities
Fixed an issue where many abilities were not properly obeying line of sight rules.

Interesting move from Zenimax Online, i am curious if this is a consequence of the negative reviews the tutorial islands got.

They listened. Well done. For Wildstars sake I hope they follow suit.

Three.  2 from Skyshards and one for finishing the starter quest

Because they hate noobs? ...final answer.

Optional starter island is interesting, but they added collision detection?? They might have just won me over completely :)

 

It really sounds like they're putting a big effort into making this game feel more like a living, breathing world and less like a glorified chat room that most MMOs end up being.  I'm liking this more and more every time I hear about it.

 

Keep it up Zenimax!

Because we asked for it.  We said mobs were too easy... so they make them harder.

We say the starting island is boring, so we can now skip it.

We say melee combat is too floaty, so they add the weapon swing pause, more blood, and collision detection.

The problem now is what if it causes problems for the stress test.  What if some of these things are determined not feasible in the stress test because of it causing a performance hit.  Personally if it's going to cause other problems, I don't want it.  If it works, that is fine.

I really dont care about the starter Islands, I wont skip them anyway and for me it was not really a need. But the other things they are working on or changed are great. And it is amazing that it is done in such a short time.

When I played the beta, the starter isle had an "early out" from the get-go. At any point after receiving the quest to recuse islanders, you could go back and say, "I'm ready to leave." without rescuing a single soul. That was back in... July?

It's good to see them fine tuning the game to some major complaints.

Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

Here is a qoute from a ESO dev:

"Having worked on games with player collision in PVP before, we found that it was far more valuable to offer players larger battles with better server and client performance than smaller battles with player collision due to the hit servers and clients take when implementing such a feature.  That’s not to say we didn’t consider it at one time and while it is always interesting to put collision in a PVP game, when you’re dealing with masses of players it becomes more of a frustration point than a tactical advantage (speaking from personal experience trying to setup a shield wall behind a Keep door then watching players still find ways through it)."

A bit confused.  Someone on reddit makes a post about what appears to be second hand information, and everyone is accepting it as gospel?  Don't see anyone at Tamrielfoundry, twitter or other avenues talking about this.  I wouldn't assume this information is actually accurate until a more authoritative source comes along.

edit: Don't see a peep about this on the bethsoft forums

not saying it is true but its a leak and probably not set in stone yet. just because they are trying it doesn't mean it will be that way come launch.

that said, i noticed they said it teleport's you to your home city then gives you the option to go back?

IMO it should just give you the option to leave whenever you want, if anything.

not that it is a big deal but that just kind of seems backwards to me.

Well the option to skip the tutorial islands is good but as I remember the first quests at the city were level 8 which means you will have to deal with level 8 quests while you are only level 3 yourself. And you will also miss the skyshards at the previous zones.

Kind of a hardcore mode if you ask me. But the choice is yours.

That part of beta-- the stuff in the Private Test Server is still sort of under NDA. No one is going to use their well-known user name to leak info... this is why we're getting the info from random people...but other random people are confirming it and no random people are denying it...

 

so... take it for what it's worth. Personally, I'm leaning toward believing it though.

Exactly my thoughts. Imagine player blocking own people i.e. gates, very narrow path on the castle walls

Well we will see....it has pros and cons

None of these RUMORED changes would be enough to get me to change my mind on NOT playing this game. While the mechanics of the game are just as good as any other MMO out there, they are not unique enough in gameplay options to nor true enough to the Elder Scrolls single player experience to compel me to play. If you like MMO's in general like WoW, SWTOR or you name it....then by all means go ahead. However, I won't be there....my choice.

 

(NOTE: I was going to pre-order until I played about 30 hours of beta.)

That's funny.  I was going to pass on this completely until playing the beta.  I bought the Imperial Edition after trying it.
