if you really want them to think about changing the game.. all you need do is simply stop posting in this forum. They said themselves that silence is the worst thing they were afraid of.

My God, the weeping and gnashing of teeth over this game is mind boggling.  They were never trying to make an elder scrolls console style rpg. Zenimax is separate from bethesda, so unlike with bioware and KOTOR, future titles won't be effected for that line.

 

What this is really about is whining because the hip crowd around here wants every mmo to be a skill based fps whackamole game. Not everyone wants that and it may not be the best for an RPG. If you want action fps combat then play those games, but do stop crying because you didn't get your way with this one.

 

I have no idea if this game will be any good or not. I loved DAOC. If this is updated DAOC there will be a couple hundred thousand of us willing to pay for it. That is more than enough to keep your game floating, unless you spend 200 million on development, which they haven't. If it is bad it will fail, tera failed and it had silly wackamole combat. I know some of you are going to say that was the only good part of the game, but whatever it failed. Swtor is failing, not as quickly as tera though, and you know what the engine, combat style, and classes have absolutely no impact on this. SWTOR failed because the content was shallow and unengaging. This is the key, interface, combat,  are whatever.; players will be fine with it, its the total content fail in modern mmos that cause the games to fail.

Hey now, it was in Matt's own words, they aren't making a MMORPG, but something new, different, "better" for sure, they're building us an Online Role Playing Game (ORPG).

We keep losing letters......

They maybe will do some desperate last minute small changes to make it more mmo, but that will not change fundamental design of game.  It's like putting lipstick on a pig. Does not change much.

I know,

I've been playing MMOs since the year 2000, this is my hobby, so I know how much time it takes to make a MMO.

Being in developement for 5 years it means that the game is 90% done.

Yet, Bethesda (which owns Zenimax Online) is not EA which push any piece of crap as soon as possible to meet investors deadlines

Bethesda is more like Blizzard which famous motto is "we release it when it is done"

So I actually expect the game to be pushed back a couple of years, and sure I will be waiting.

I just wanna play a TES game in a MMO environment, not another WOW clone, is it too much to ask?

So I can wait, and I bet I am not the only one.

 

Plus I don't expect Zenimax to start development from scratch, they don't have to change the Engine or the art style, neither the questing or the world maps, so the majority of the content won't be affected.

But there are things that can be added, like player housing and a player driven economy (Yes it's hard Matt, I know), and something they can improved, like combat for example.

I am not asking to copy and paste Skyrim combat and UI, which it is obviously not suited for a MMO, I am not  such a fool to support that..

But I believe that  the combat should be more like TERA (not the same) rather than like WOW or SWTOR.

Honestly I won't be able to play a TES game with WOW combat, it would feel really weird, for me it is absolutely game breaking.

Exploration and an action based combat are the 2 trademarks of TES, if one of the 2 elements is missing, for me it is not a TES game.

I suggest Zenimax to play TERA for few weeks and see if they can get some useful tips from it.

I wish someone would tell Besthesda that they only release "when it is done."  I don't think their buggy games got that memo.

Not sure if serious.

Go to the main website, it clearly states mmorpg. It's a play on words. Ever heard of such a thing? Can i know what seems to be less mmo from what we've heard. I haven't seen anything about lobby based, co-op anything.

Source? Because he simply said mmo is a tierd expressions. Everything up until now from this game as been said it's an mmo. Play on words, get it?

Really, open world dungeons makes sense in a non mmo game /sarcasm

The OP literally just put SW:TOR and TSW in league with D3 in terms of what genre of game they are. SW:TOR and TSW are online persistant game worlds, with thousands of other players at 1 time. D3 is a co-op dungeoncrawler RPG with not even a handful of players that you're able to play with....As skeptical as I am about TESO, I still have a feeling that they've got their own stuff to bring to the table with MMO's. They've called it an MMO many times before, other people have addressed it as an MMO to them and they never correct them, for all intents and purposes it sounds like a fully online persistant MMO. My biggest concern is that it's basically going to be a medieval SW:TOR, which I am fine with TBH as SW:TOR is a pretty good game for me, and players who love story and immersion like that. I'm sure I'll probably enjoy TESO, but I do hope that they set themselves apart in a positive way when the time comes.

Touche'

But I was talking about the design and the content not the technical side of the game.

TES games have always been buggy, but they've never been rushed so to feel incomplete or shallow like most of recent releases from the competition.

That'swhy they are successful, the gameplay is so addictive and immersive that you almost forget about the bugs.

Well, I think what he was trying to emphasize is they intend to deliver the game they wish to make, regardless of what people's expectations might have been in terms of being a MMORPG.

Personally I think this leaves the door open to deliver even less functionality than a traditional theme park title, but like you said, we'll see.

But notice at the end of his interview he made the classic mistake, he's putting far too much faith in the TES IP, as if he's got another Star Wars on his hands (and even that didn't turn out too well.  

As far as IP's go, Resident Evil is bigger and has 4 movies about it, TES has well, a couple of books and some console games.

Developers always make the mistake thinking the IP is a huge consideration, most of us stay subbed to a game because they are fun, not because we want to be Darth Vadar.

I pretty much said the same thing in a previous thread and someone actually argued that TES was equal to Star Wars and Mario in terms of IP popularity.

I definitely agree that they put too much faith in the IP's themselves, but at the end of the day they're making a game, some people will love it others won't, and to each their own. I think too many people try to generalize and act like everyone wants the same things from this genre, and that's just not the case. If the game is a good game people will play it, if they think it's worth another bill they'll subscribe to it. Commercially speaking SWTOR did fantastic, long term viability is another topic unto it's own though, and it all just really depends on the moves these companies make with their games both pre and post launch. Different things are fun to different people, and I'm glad to see the MMO genre making motions in slightly different directions when it comes to their approach to these games. The whole story and choice movement going on right now is a great, long overdue thing tbh but you do need more then that to maintain peoples interest over a long period of time unless you come up with some magical way of making the story endless. I think they've got some good ideas for TESO, but we haven't really seen any of it so it's going to be hard to truly understand what they're talking about until they really start showing the game.

I will be shocked if this game is not a complete failure. It is NOTHING like skyrim. Skyrim sold 10 million because Skyrim is AWESOME....not because they used the elderscrolls universe.

And what made Skyrim so awesome is that you, me and everyone was the center of the game, everything was dynamic, there where no other idiots around to ruin the experience.

Now, put an mmo in it and see what happens

Hey we are commenting on Matt Firor interview, not on the game FAQs

An Matt Firor says that what they are doing is an Online RPG.

I just find it curious that Matt admitted something I was thinking while reading all Zenimax interviews, which is that TESO looks like more like an Online RPG very story driven and quite casual (like SWTOR and TSW), rather than a classic MMO

That's why I linked this interview, which other than that doesn't add anything new.

If Skyrim was made into an MMO it would fail, you can only wander around a game world aimlessly with no real sense of genuine involvement or personal importance or personalized narrative for so long before you get bored. The weakest point of the Elder Scrolls games is the story aspect. Sure, they tend to be really pretty games to run around and explore all the nooks and crannies for a couple of months but other then that I've found that most people couldn't care less about them after that point, because they've all become pretty bored with it.

Skyrim sold 10 million copies because it was so heavily hyped, it's a singleplayer game, and it was such an insanely long period of time since the last one. It's not all due to it being "amazing" or not. Personally, I enjoyed the game like most people I know did. A month and some of going through it and taking it in, and I've got absolutely 0 desire to play it again.
