It's an interesting "article" to read, for sure.

However, ESO hasn't even had a proper launch yet.  So, to go all "Dear John" on it (and even to label the post "A Farewell to ESO") sounds like a creepy stalker saying they're breaking up with you when you weren't even dating.

I also like how they said they weren't going to pay money for an inevitable F2P title.  I hate to say this, but I sincerely feel, at some point, every MMO will go F2P.  WoW may not, but they don't have to- they have their legions of fans that won't play anything but WoW.  I don't really see another MMO getting a core audience like that, as WoW was around when there weren't too many choices for MMO's.  Nowadays, though, there is literally an MMO for every kind of player.

I'd love to see ESO do well.  I won't be playing it, but I see no reason why it won't find and captivate its targeted audience- even if this Johnny McNobody isn't gonna be playing it.

Give me a break!  This guy had/has a super large ego and thinks he is a special snowflake.  He cried non stop about a nerf to his class (Templar), was mad about API changes, and constantly deleted posts and chastised other users for not agreeing with his know it all ways.  

Some of these people think that because they write a blog or are a member of a big guild that they are the epitamy of all mmo gamers. He felt he had to broadcast his sob story for the whole world to see and take a shot at ZoS at the same time.  Very lame if you ask me.  He rather play Swtor and minecraft instead of ESO if that tells you something.  Very very childlike.

Dang you ESO,there should be news how you add new wonderful things to the game and not these how you remove features from allready thin feature list :(.

 

 

So, did ESO have a successful launch? Yes, yes it did.

Classic.

 

Even better, inevitably the bulk of those self-same dullards will be spending their time around here trashing the hell out of TESO in three months or less.

 

This place is nothing if not rich in irony.

 

I wish TESO well, as I do most games that come out -- the more choice the better. But anyone who thinks the devs are following a "vision" is delusional and anyone who can't see that the game is in for a rough start hasn't been paying attention.

 

You can debate the API change 'til doomsday, and I agree that for him (and many others) that was clearly the straw that broke the camel's back, but many of the other things he brings up aren't really open for debate and are serious issues anyone hoping for the game's long term health should be paying attention to and be worried about.

When you make your opinion known on the internet, prepare for it to get trashed, sorry if that hurts your feelings. Also, not many are really "trashing" them, more like saying he doesnt bring any new points to the table and he started disliking the game the minute API changes went into effect. Which in itself is a pretty weak argument for anything. Apparently it is entirely open to debate because there's just as many people who disagree with what he's saying as agree.

If everyone here were idiots in your opinion you wouldnt get so butt hurt over what is said. But here you are...whinging like a wounded mule. No big surprises here.

Agreed. The blog guy threw out his dummy.

Tbh it's getting old, like the "I quit!" posts on swtor's forums all them months ago.

If your unhappy, leave, don't play... We do not care! We'll plod along having fun.

No trials. No tricks. No traps. No EU-RP server. NO THANKS!

So let me get this straight.

 

When the beta-tester has played for a short amount of time:

-Your negative review is invalid and makes no sense, you did not play enough to have a real and solid opinion about the state of the game and thus yours is pointless whining.

 

When the beta tester has played for a long time and is a veteran:

-Your negative review is invalid and makes no sense,  you played too long so it means the game was good so you do not have a real or solid opinion about the state of the game and yours is just being burnt and rumphurt.

 

O....k.......

What does that have to do with anything? It's just funny laughing at people who think they are important.

Exactly. I admit I went back after my initial post and skim read through the bulk of it, this seems to be the gripe? Can taking an established stance on this be considered flip flopping? Just because something was allowed in beta for test purposes, doesnt mean its going to ultimately make it to live, one would think this goes without saying for anything in the beta. In short, dont get too attached to what you see because it is after all, a testing environment.

He probably thought his ability to WTFBBQPWN in the game had been somewhat dimished by the lack of API support. The game is going in a different direction, suck it up.

All in all it seems to be more of a philosophical disagreement or some perceived master plan (or lack thereof) that seems to be the driving point behind his post. Out one side of his mouth he basically claims Zenimax has no idea what the hell they're doing, and out the other that they're already priming the game to go F2P with some ominous racketeering design. It can hardly be both at the same damn time.

Anytime someone starts off their post by mentioning how prominent/important they are, what follows is going to suck.

It's not flip flopping. I'm almost 100% certain we all knew the unlimited powah of the API as it was in beta wasn't staying. They said so at least a few months ago. Granted, it took way longer for them to scale back than I personally thought they would, but I guess some were convinced the scale back wouldn't be as dramatic or the long delay meant they changed their minds and wouldn't scale back at all.

Turns out they didn't change their mind. And stuck to it all along. QQ commences.

If you want a summary of what a lot of the ER folks feel about the API changes, look at Golden Tiger's post on here. Taking away the ability to tell exactly how much magicka, stamina, hp, buffs, etc an enemy play has = no PvP. For some reason.

That he has abandoned the game after unselfishly sinking so much time is an incredible red flag.

Wow!  Never thought I would see this happen.  Fascinating.

Actually, to see someone like isarii crying about the ESO devs "not listening to the wise words of Tamrielfoundry" fills me with hope for the future of the game.

 

It shows that the devs ARE staying true to their own vision, and are not being swayed by small power-groups who believe that they are "special" and should be the ones dictating the development decisions for the masses.

Sounds like some people are upset they don't get to cheat anymore. That makes his tears even more glorious.

While the super fan turning rabid hater is often a tale we see. I think a distinction has to be made about bugs here, there are bugs: minor annoyances, then there are BUGS: multiple quests won't work... If people are leaving over that in two months, who could blame em?

Last beta I came across 7 bugged quests.  The other day they brought the servers up to test the overflow servers, at that time none of the quests were bugged...let the game launch...

Oh please.  He doesn't like the API changes so he's going to walk away.  Regardless of what he said in the post, he is bashing the game in an attempt to punish Zen for a decision he doesn't agree with.

 

Personally I like that they locked down the API hard.  If he can't handle it, I wish him luck in  another game. 

 

 

Pretty much this.

And that goes back to my point of his opinion feeling like hubris.

So if I drive a fan site, play the game for months and then comment (positivley or negatively) on information that everyone has, my opinion will have more weight?

The only weight it gains is if I'm commenting on the beta experience itself. Not if a feature is good or bad.

No game is meant to be played forever.

Then it shouldn't be P2P. Buy and dump themepark mmos are perfectly fine for many like me. But if the the game's just meant to be played for some months and put aside only to be touched on rare occasions, i don't see a reason to pay for game time when all that matters is the box content.

EDIT: Of course no game's meant to be played "forever", but if all i wanted was a game to play and dump, i'd settle for SP. Much more value, quality and cheaper. But like i said, meh, themeparks.

Cool, someone who thinks we should care about his opinion. Guess what, no one cares random dude who didn't get his way, no one cares.

Yet here we are. 17 pages of threads on a guy no one cares for. GG

What does that have to do with anything? It's just funny laughing at people who think they are important.

I find it funny that theres so many post on this. I think he did hes job. If he wanted to get attention, hes got it.

True, to some people it's better to be known as a dillwad than forgotten I guess.

Not to be rude but thank god this guy is gone we will all be better off..........

 

I mean I understand you don't agree with some of the decisions but come on... All I can picture from that goodbye post is someone needing a pacifier and a nap.....

All you have to do is look at his post history on TF and you can see some of his responses to others telling them he doesn't give a shit what they say and then threatening to kick people off the site if they posted anything that was basically disagreeing with his view.... Lovely way to talk to people when your a moderator..... He basically wanted to tell people his opinion and when others didn't agree he would throw a tantrum....

And not to mention this so called goodbye post is completely contradictory it's a convoluted mess...... I will refer you once again to look at his posting history on TF all of a sudden since he doesn't like the API changes he does a 180 and now doesn't like half the features he said he liked....... It's nothing but a cry for attention.......

OP seems like one of those nerdy pve healers. 

When I eat chocolate chip pie it just doesn't feel like chocolate chip cookies. The texture, the consistency, it's just not the same and this is disappointing.
