I am willing to wager on quite a few ES fans not liking TESO

I don't buy in with half these people who suddenly become Elder Scrolls fans.  ESO semi-offical forums are full of them saying "WE LIKE THE GAME" yet most all of them have 2012 join dates.  I'm betting most of these people never really understood TES or zenimax is hiring people to play crowd control.

So if we dont agree with you we are either paid off or lying? Seriously? God complex much?

I don't understand, you way you want a sandbox. Then you say daoc only got 250k but EQ got 400k. Yet EQ is more themeparky than daoc.

Also rather hillariously you pointed out uo had 250k too, and uo actually is a sandbox, the 2nd most successful of all time after eve.

It's obvious you never played daoc, you seem to be under the impression it was some sort of early form of wow. Your most wow like games back then were Ao and EQ, although theyre not really like wow either.

Deakon, they can't get it through their heads there are players out there who like both tes and daoc.

I remember buying Morrowind back in the day, and thinking wow this is like a mmo, its like ac or daoc but with action combat. I immediately dropped my wow sub and played Morrowind for pve and planetside for pvp. Much like I do now with skyrim and ps2.

ohhh, did I strike a nerve?  You know it wouldn't be a stupid move if they hired people to populate forums and talk good about their game.  Pretty smart imo.

..and I wouldn't say lying, it's more like they are stretching the truth to fit in and feel like thier opinion is valid.  We all have done similar things before, it's human nature.

I loved SWG as much as I did simply because it reminded me so much of Morrowind, combine that with SW and I was hooked. Now I also loved DAOC, and I am  also a huge fan of TES lore, again I could see this being a game I really enjoy if done right.

Yes I did play DAoC from release until about 6 months in. Game just wasnt for me.

I dont think it was an early WoW. I thought the PvE was more EQLite. So did my entire guild. The RvR was ok, but (for me at least) wasnt worth paying $15mo for.

Sorry, I just didnt like your special little game the way you did.

Stretching the truth? What like saying "this is nothing but daoc 2 with a tes skin"? that kind of stretching the truth?

I'm sure they do, as a lot of companies do it. That said, to use a blanket statement like that as an answer to why someone would disagree with you, is exactly what you described in the post above (in yellow).

Strong focus on RvR (via AvA), locking races into factions, seperating the areas and making a center point in which everyone fights for.... sound familar?

Lets just wait till release and see how many say "this is nothing but daoc 2 with a tes skin".

Again Im willing to bet it will be a lot

I think even one of the mmorpg staff, who had test-played the game, said it was a ThemePark so I think it is pretty much a sure thing that it is. And an Elder Scrolls game, which are traditionally open ended sandboxy RPGs, contrary to linear story based one's like Dragon Age, being created as a ThemePark deserves to be hated.

It is like taking a piss on your fanbase and creating something completely else.

 

there was never anything sandbox in a MMO kind of way about elder scrolls games. Sandbox for single player games are define by their open world design. Look it up. Nothing to do with player made content. All MMO have open worlds. Adding multiplayer to skyrim or oblivion and you get the same gameplay found in any themepark mmo. There is nothing unique about the elder scrolls gameplay thatsnot found in a themepark

Nonsense. Themepark MMOs do not have open world design, they are clearly designed to funnel you from quest hub to quest hub, level bracketted zone to level bracketted zone and your character is carefully designed to be able to fight the content for that particular level bracket.

Skyrim was not designed like that. There was a story line that you could follow but you could also go out completely on your own and enjoy the game because the world was designed so that you could do that and still enjoy the game. ThemePark games, altough you could do it that way, are not designed as such.

And sandbox MMOs are also not defined by player made content but rather by open world design. However since they are MMOs, player made content is one of the elements typically associated with sandbox MMOs. However a ThemePark could also have it, just look at the STO foundry system, so it is not direcly related to sandbox MMOs.

Good thing Elder Scrolls Online copies the same open world exploration centric gameplay the single player RPG's follows then huh?

You should really read up on the game, the game is not an open world. It will have zones and instances. 

 You see, in The Elder Scrolls Online, players will be given the option of setting their own play preferences. Players will be asked what sort of age groups they want to play with or what playstyle preferences they have (ex. PvP, raiding, etc.) and the game will intelligently match up players of like interests when sorting out the populations of zone instances. Instead of just shuffling players into different zone copies by simple load metrics, The Elder Scrolls Online will give players the option of tailoring the community they share the world with to their own individual preferences. The game will even remember players you’ve interacted with and place you in zone instances with them if they’re online. Neat!

 

http://www.mmorpg.com/gamelist.cfm/game/821/feature/6846/Megaservers-vs-The-Elder-Scrolls.html

Whats that got to do with being open?  All it does is get like minded people into the same channel of the mega server. 

 

Everything else is open, Skyrim is a zone, Cyrodill is a Zone, Morrowind is a Zone, Elsweyr is a zone....all open, all feature go off exploration centric gameplay with no quest hubbing.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

I think alot of these new found ES fans are just old DAoC fans who have been rubbing themselves raw waiting for #2

This is gettting pretty comical now, you guys are the only "real" fans, I get it....

 So, is Mario Kart a Mario game, or is it a game with Mario in it? If you are a fan of Mario, do you defend Mario Kart for being Mario or for being a driving game? What if Nintendo tries to make Mario Kart for fans of Mario and try to pass it off as nothing more than a Mario game, do you still defend it as a Mario game like a blind fool or do you point out that it isnt Mario, its a driving game? Yeah...

Donkey Kong has Mario in it, it is not a Mario game. TESO has TES in it, it is not a TES game, and NO, the mario/mario kart example DOES NOT APPLY because a side scroller and a driving game are two VERY DIFFERENT GENRES and thus CANNOT BE THE SAME. TES and TESO however are BOTH RPGs that CAN be near directly translated.

Which is NOT being done. Everything that makes up the base game of TES is being thrown out for outdated bland boring dull ideas that never took off in the first place that did create the vast limitations modern MMOs are NOW STAGNATED WITH.

To celebrate a loved IP being made with those limitations makes NO SENSE at all when if it was kept to what the IP actually was, it would make a REFRESHING NEW MMO INSTEAD!

Well, if you have better news, please post it here.

All we are doing is posting a fact. And the fact is that an IP known for classless, free-roaming, non-linear exploration in an open world is putting its name on a game that the developers themselves have said will be based on class-delineated, closed-off, linear gameplay n a restricted world.

This is not good news for lovers of TES.

I couldn't agree with you more noncley.  I don't want to offend people who like what ESO is planning but it's a messy business aruguing over opinions.

If Zeni never announced faction locks NONE of us would be having this conversation.  I could not imagine anyone fighting for an Elder Scrolls game to confine players to factions and areas because of what race they choose.

If Zeni announced that ESO was going with a non faction gameplay then we would have another failure of a game that copies the same failed designs of the last 15 years.  In order for that to of happened then you would of had to implement either A) FFA PvP or B) Instanced BG' if you wanted PvP.  Your PvE would of been ok I guess but then you wouldnt have the ultimate PvP system we have now.  In other words we would of gotten WoW 2.0. 

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

Left click hit, hold left click power hit, right click block, hold right click and hit left to interupt, sound familiar?

Being able to wear any armor or weapon regardless of class, sound familiar?

Leveling skills/armor/weapons up the more you use them, sound familiar?

Every class can use stealth, sound familiar?

Every class can block, sound familiar?

Stamina, health and magica as the 3 main stats, sound familiar?

No cd on spells and attacks, sound familiar?

These areas are not open, they are closed off by races.  You have to create 3 different characters to explore all of Tamriel.  That is not the type of exploring enjoyed in ES games.  There is no need to limit players in such a way.  If they didn't focus on the racial war then they could've left these areas open for everyone.

I am willing to wager on quite a few ES fans not liking TESO

I don't buy in with half these people who suddenly become Elder Scrolls fans.  ESO semi-offical forums are full of them saying "WE LIKE THE GAME" yet most all of them have 2012 join dates.  I'm betting most of these people never really understood TES or zenimax is hiring people to play crowd control.

I think alot of these new found ES fans are just old DAoC fans who have been rubbing themselves raw waiting for #2

This is gettting pretty comical now, you guys are the only "real" fans, I get it....

 So, is Mario Kart a Mario game, or is it a game with Mario in it? If you are a fan of Mario, do you defend Mario Kart for being Mario or for being a driving game? What if Nintendo tries to make Mario Kart for fans of Mario and try to pass it off as nothing more than a Mario game, do you still defend it as a Mario game like a blind fool or do you point out that it isnt Mario, its a driving game? Yeah...

Donkey Kong has Mario in it, it is not a Mario game. TESO has TES in it, it is not a TES game, and NO, the mario/mario kart example DOES NOT APPLY because a side scroller and a driving game are two VERY DIFFERENT GENRES and thus CANNOT BE THE SAME. TES and TESO however are BOTH RPGs that CAN be near directly translated.

Which is NOT being done. Everything that makes up the base game of TES is being thrown out for outdated bland boring dull ideas that never took off in the first place that did create the vast limitations modern MMOs are NOW STAGNATED WITH.

To celebrate a loved IP being made with those limitations makes NO SENSE at all when if it was kept to what the IP actually was, it would make a REFRESHING NEW MMO INSTEAD!

err you dont make sense Skyrim is a single player game, teso is a mmo, THEY ARE IN DIFFERENT GENRES.

Its like portal is a fps, but it would make a bad mmo, if you want fps in a mmo you make something like planetside.

also youve never heard of Redguard then i guess. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Elder_Scrolls_Adventures:_Redguard

Thats still a tes game even though it plays nothing like the others,  much like mario cart is still a mario game (and paper mario the rpg, and super smash brothers etc..)

THANKS FOR PROOVING OUR POINT with your excellent mario example.

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

And Warcraft started off as a Real-Time-Strategy game and transitioned into an MMO.  One that is arguably the most successful ever. 

 

So what if ESO is transitioning from a single player open world RPG to a Open World MMO with 3 player factional warfare that fits within the lore of the setting.  I can buy ESO's transition far more easily then I could of Warcrafts.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

I think even one of the mmorpg staff, who had test-played the game, said it was a ThemePark so I think it is pretty much a sure thing that it is. And an Elder Scrolls game, which are traditionally open ended sandboxy RPGs, contrary to linear story based one's like Dragon Age, being created as a ThemePark deserves to be hated.

It is like taking a piss on your fanbase and creating something completely else.

 

there was never anything sandbox in a MMO kind of way about elder scrolls games. Sandbox for single player games are define by their open world design. Look it up. Nothing to do with player made content. All MMO have open worlds. Adding multiplayer to skyrim or oblivion and you get the same gameplay found in any themepark mmo. There is nothing unique about the elder scrolls gameplay thatsnot found in a themepark

Nonsense. Themepark MMOs do not have open world design, they are clearly designed to funnel you from quest hub to quest hub, level bracketted zone to level bracketted zone and your character is carefully designed to be able to fight the content for that particular level bracket.

Skyrim was not designed like that. There was a story line that you could follow but you could also go out completely on your own and enjoy the game because the world was designed so that you could do that and still enjoy the game. ThemePark games, altough you could do it that way, are not designed as such.

And sandbox MMOs are also not defined by player made content but rather by open world design. However since they are MMOs, player made content is one of the elements typically associated with sandbox MMOs. However a ThemePark could also have it, just look at the STO foundry system, so it is not direcly related to sandbox MMOs.

Good thing Elder Scrolls Online copies the same open world exploration centric gameplay the single player RPG's follows then huh?

You should really read up on the game, the game is not an open world. It will have zones and instances. 

 You see, in The Elder Scrolls Online, players will be given the option of setting their own play preferences. Players will be asked what sort of age groups they want to play with or what playstyle preferences they have (ex. PvP, raiding, etc.) and the game will intelligently match up players of like interests when sorting out the populations of zone instances. Instead of just shuffling players into different zone copies by simple load metrics, The Elder Scrolls Online will give players the option of tailoring the community they share the world with to their own individual preferences. The game will even remember players you’ve interacted with and place you in zone instances with them if they’re online. Neat!

Whats that got to do with being open?  All it does is get like minded people into the same channel of the mega server. 

 

Everything else is open, Skyrim is a zone, Cyrodill is a Zone, Morrowind is a Zone, Elsweyr is a zone....all open, all feature go off exploration centric gameplay with no quest hubbing.

That is NOT an open game world. Zones close things off. Especially when they are restricted by Race/Faction locks.

Its even less open when you are in a Mirrored Zone made just for you and like minded players and others (not like minded) are playing in another Mirror.

Not totally different genres; SP-RPG v. MMO-RPG.  Roleplaying game is a roleplaying game, adding a bunch of people hardly changes the genre classification drastically.  Many things from TES could've translated into a MMO.
