Not a sandbox but it had a crap ton of freedom unlike this game will have. That will be the deal breaker for many and also having pvp is a bad idea since the ip is based of exploration, loot  and immersion.

well, in GW2 you can switch to the server that is the best in wvwvw IIANM.

from reading about TESO pvp, it seems like unless you join a large successful guild, you wont have much of a choice on what campaign you join, even if you switch campaigns.

campaigns are appointed to you but its not totally clear if you get to pick a new campaign or if a new one is assigned to you, if you choose to switch.

in theory, you are already in a campaign with your friends and guild, so i don't really see them allowing you to pick a new campaign.

it will more than likely be assigned to you, at least i hope lol

also, i can see huge mega guilds being formed in each faction just so everyone can get in the same campaigns, unless there is some way to prevent that?

people complain about the megaserver but to me its something that we must see in action, there is just too many variables that we don't know about.

you wont really know how much freedom it has until you actually play it or more info is released about it.

IMO just because you cant go to the enemy lands until you are 50 doesn't mean it will lack so much freedom that it will break the game.

if the areas are huge with lots of content and places to explore, i don't see it as an issue for most.

you can still go off and do whatever you want to and stumble upon quests, as the devs have confirmed that you can.

but it remains to be seen just how much of that there is and how important the main story is with the development of your character.

need more information before any of us can honestly make that determination.

Where player gear matters a lot and dropped gear is made even better by crafters. WoW hub questing mixed with GW2 open world questing. So ya... just like WoW lol 

It's sad that your entire defence just makes it sound like a generic copycat MMO.

Name a truly original idea in a new MMO that hasn't copied itself from a previous game. When it comes down to game systems, you'll find that most great ingenuity in the MMO genre comes from different takes on similar ideas. That's not to say that it's impossible to come up with something completely original, but that's going to be a rare occurence in any established artform.

You can switch in GW2 but it will cost ou. The more populated the server, the more it will cost. Most high population servers play against each other in WvWvW.

i am guessing that is how campaigns will be too, hopefully they put the best guilds against each other so it forms meaningful rivalries.

i just don't think you will be able to pick a campaign. if anything, people will join successful guilds and join their campaigns.

which is why i think mega guilds will be common in this game, unless they have something in mind to prevent that.

This is to true of every video game. Look at FPS, how different are they? Little things here and there but when something cool new is added, its not long till a large % of new shooters have the feature as well. MMOs have followed that. Like yelling WTS for hours on end and then SWG gave us global action houses. Then all MMOs had them. WoW gave us quest hubs to level with... well we know that outcome. DAoC gave us battlegrounds and then WoW and almost every MMO after that. There is nothing new under the sun. Sinse EQ1 made MMOing big, no MMO has been unique and EQ1 was a clone by all accounts lol

Devs said that switching campaigns well be as hard to do as switching servers in other games. It wont be common. That being said, that wont stop the MMO hoppers that want to cash in on easy wins. Myself I will look for a balanced conflict where each side is somewhat equal. I like my fight to be a fight and wins to feel like I earned something.

Campaigns have size limits and presumably guilds will want to have all of their members in a campaign... I wonder what the implications are for recruiting new members after the first week when all the campaigns will already be "full."

Daoc battlegrounds aren't the same concept as wow battlegrounds they just share the same name.

Daoc bgs are persistent zones for training for endgame pvp. They aren't instanced matches.

I really hope they don't match campaigns, it sucks in gw2, there's no long term rivalry.

Everything points to not following GW2 model. If they went with 2 week matches I would lose a little intrest.

Yeah, EQ1 was cloned from Meridian 59, which was the first 3d graphical representation of a MUD, which were all clones and copies of each other all the way back to Collosal Cave Adventure. Coincidentally, Matt Firor was heavily involved in the creation and development of early MUDs...

So there you have it, TESO is another generic MUD clone brought to you by one of MUDings lead developers. Gosh, these one trick ponies only make what they know amiright?

what do you hope they do? just reset everything and keep the teams the same after the campaign ends?

Where did you read that? 

'Campaigns can last for a month or longer, giving everyone a chance to pitch in for the war effort.'

....Conflict in Cyrodiil, Part 1 (official site).

While not stating the length of the campaign it does suggest a finite length.  Whether this would be time based or objective based is anyone's guess.

Lets hope they dont use GW2 system where you change how you are fighting. I like my war to be static and get to know the other side. Their guilds and tatics so you can play a smart war.
