They didn't listen to players that came away from the Beta with a "The hell is this solo player game....?  It  is so freaking buggy and needs a lot of work.."

Now it's a ghost town for a reason..

Your opinion on the game is fine, but calling a ghost town is just not true. The cities and world are bustling with people and I can hardly walk 10 feet without running into others.

I can't take this editor seriously, at all.  The first thing you talk about is the FPS issue in Cyrodiil, but that was completely fixed over a week ago and the article was published today.  I get 35 FPS minimum in groups of over a hundred players, whereas I can't get more than 15 FPS in WildStar while looking at the ground on minimum specs.  ESO is the only new MMO worth my time. 


Yes, the game is absolutely worth playing.  It's the only MMO I've ever played that was made by developers who actually take player sentiment into consideration at every step of development.  They've done more in the first three months than most MMOs do in the first six, and that includes improving the graphical fidelity, which is something that other developers refuse to touch after launch.  

My experience has been the exact opposite.  The developers decisions have killed this game for me.  End game is just a lazy approach to rehashing content for other realms.  Being forced to play through it to get to VR10 is a killer for me.  In beta you could level pretty easily in PVP, but they gutted that soon after launch.  You could farm world bosses in groups, but they gutted that as well.  Too boot they say they wanted to encourage grouping in end game so this decision does not follow along those lines. 


The game was very buggy as well.  Phasing was horrible and I often couldn't complete quests because of it.  I would have to zone log in an out multiple times to complete quests and even then it sometimes wouldn't work at all.  This impacted main story quests as well.


WIldStar on the other hand has been much more polished.  The questing system, while not as involved, worked.  The game performs much better for me as well.  I have a 780 Ti and there are times that it didn't perform much better in ESO than the 570 it replaced.  In town I could drop down to 30 FPS in ESO, but in games like Battlefield 4 I barely drop below 80 on ultra.  


They have also released additional content and allow users to play the game they like to enjoy it.  For example, if you level outside of questing they have given alternative ways to gain faction rep so you are not forced to do it.  ESO has been the opposite and many of their decisions have been designed to force you to play the game the way they want you to play it. 


It is going to vary by each user and I think the author is right on which game will suit you best.  I don't know how much smoother ESO is now, but if bugs drive you crazy and you do not like having to relog multiple times a session then stay away from ESO.  The bugs in the game were horrible.  Also, while the PVP was great early on class balance seems to be way off.  Again this can be old news, but I know it drove many users away.  At least a month or so ago.  On the bright site, DK vampires are no longer taking on 20 people and winning! :)

Though the author is out of date with regard to the PVP FPS issue as that was fixed already, I agree with most of the content of the article. Yes, this is more than worth the fee if you enjoy this type of game. It is the best MMO for PVE exploration that is not hub based, as there are a ton of things to find that are not tied to quests and you can't find all the quests without exploring.

I am taking a little break while they revamp the Veteran Ranks since I just reached V1 ( I don't rush) and I want to focus on Divinity Original Sin :-).

I am coming back to ESO after a mad initial burn out from another game where everyone is runnning around like they're bouncing off the rails from coke and although I do have a lot of fun it may not be your thing after a bit; or perhaps I have initial burn out.  That's for a side conversation, though.  And that was a lot of rambling.

Anyways, been taking my time on a class I didn't play before and hopefully by the time I get to 50 the changes will be in-game.  Hope to see any and all around!

Also wanted to reply to the post and say that I agree it is worth the price; it has a lot of very good things in it and for me these by far justify the price for me.

No, people get warnings for:

"Is ESO Worth Buying?"

"I can't believe this game, it completely sucks, they didn't deliver what players wanted and now the game is going to go f2p in weeks lolz!

Can't believe they made this piece sh*t. What? 200 million dollars?!!?!?! Where did that money go? Probably voice overs that no one wanted and instead they delivered a buggy mess!

They could have given me that money and I could have made a better game! Can't believe people are playing this but I suppose sheep will be sheep.

Game is only worth f2p, NOT buying and certainly not a sub. F2p "if that", what a waste of a good IP!"

That's what people get warned for.

Its well worth the price, especially since you can buy it for some 45$ on various sites.

I am enjoying the game greatly.

Also ever since new patch announcement went us many of players came back. So the game is quite healthy right now, going to better.

For all those yelling F2P, I am sorry, but its not going to happend.


Zenimax is working VERY hard to keep us all happy.

Sadly, it's not worth buing. :(

For people who were not Elder Scrolls fans - ESO has nothing to offer comparing to other morpg. And even people who really want to visit online Tamiel - there is so many hindering elements, that they step away. I tried three times to convince myself, and each time I have lost.

Well to be honest, how many articles do we really need telling us to play eso? This is like the third or fourth column for this game, basically saying "buy this product"

How can someone else put a monetary value on an entertainment item for people that they do not know?  For example, if a person makes $100k a year is $60 + $15 a month for an extremely mediocre game worth it, maybe.  If a person makes $1000 a year is $60 + $15 a month for the best game ever worth it, maybe not. 


See where I am going with this?


I will say that ESO is a beautiful looking game.  I will also say that the storyline is deep and interesting.  I stopped playing after level 25 because I found dungeons to be boring and grouping was a nightmare.  One of ESOs downfalls in my opinion is it's open class system.  Yes it's a cool idea when playing solo, horrible idea when you need a healer that is specced all wrong or a tank wearing cloth using a staff. 


Also everyone that I know that made it to max level has also stopped playing.  Their reasons are pretty much all the same, nothing to do and vet 1 - 10 is nothing more than a horrible grind fest.

The Sub is enough to keep me away.. there are just too many options out there to keep me busy. No other opinion on it as I haven't played it, and never will.

Having played the game since beta I love it.  I would tend to agree if you are a wow kiddie and want to rush to end game you will not enjoy ESO unless you are into massive RvR battles.  Lost of us constantly talk in game about people who left and who stayed.  One thing we have noticed is that those who took their time leveling seem to have stayed and really enjoy the game.  Those that rushed to level cap and skipped through all the quest dialog seemed to have left.  If you are really into RvR and want it to be more than hacking and slashing then this just might be the game for you.  As an example my guild set up to take a keep we have scouts placed around our position to watch for teams sneaking up to attack our siege weapons.  We had different siege engines placed in spots to maximize their potential.  A skirmishing line of tanks with healer support.  Archer on roofs and a tower to provide covering fire.  A Night blade team to sneak and attempt to burn any counter-siege engines.  The fight went on for literally hours seesawing back and forth.

As for massive amounts of bugs.  Those who played WoW when it launched or SWTOR and any major MMO in between can tell you that ESO had a much smother launch and fewer game breaking bugs than those titles.  part of the issue is like WoW ESO drew in an audience who normally had not or did not play  an MMO game and were not use to having to deal with any but the smallest amount of issues.  There were a lot of consolers or those who just played single player rpgs trying their first MMO.

  To me and those playing ESO it really is worth the money but it is not for everyone.

No not worth it and was a huge disappointment for me as I love the real Elder scrolls games .

The scenery is great 

The lack of classes is poor but better than most of this type due to evolutions

The crafting is cruddy compared to Elder scrolls

The combat is uber easy and simplistic and a very poor cousin of elder scrolls.

The main problem I think is the lack of quests and it is  linear . In all elder scrolls if you go off the beaten track you find little areas of fun , there are few and far between in eso . Also not being able to help someone if you have already done the quest is a massive pain .

It is just a rush of easy easy quests to get to cyrodil to do some boring PVP - if you love pvp then maybe , but the cost is high for a bit of pvp .
