If you get to the open (or closed beta) and the game is crap then you can expect it to be crap once it is launched. Prior to that all reports on the game should be taken with a grain of salt be they positive or not. Also NEVER, EVER pre-order a game unless you have played it through and through in a open beta. This includes sampling the "end game" content.

Games I've played/tried out:WAR, LOTRO, Tabula Rasa, AoC, EQ1, EQ2, WoW, Vangaurd, FFXI, D&DO, Lineage 2, Saga Of Ryzom, EvE Online, DAoC, Guild Wars,Star Wars Galaxies, Hell Gate London, Auto Assault, Grando Espada ( AKA SoTNW ), Archlord, CoV/H, Star Trek Online, APB, Champions Online, FFXIV, Rift Online, GW2.

Game(s) I Am Currently Playing:

GW2 (+LoL and BF3)

Nope, you've still not explained how you are FORCED to pvp.

I've not seen any statements from zos about npc guards that frog march you down to cyrodil.

What they are making is a game with equal focus on playstyles where no one is forced to do any. This is verified for instance with zos statements like pve / pvp / craft gear will be EQUAL in quality.

Now hypotheticaly, if say I had an agenda to at the last minute change TESO into some wow style raiders first, screw everyone else game, I could se the advantage of using emotive phrases like "forced pvp"

By the very use of the word focus in the context of PvP, would presuppose that the focus is therefore on PvP and not PvE.  This would indicate that the focus of end game progression would also be located in the central focus of the game's end game content, which has been iterated as AvA / PvP.  Maybe if they used different language to describe end game "focus" and applied it to other types of content, which would then remove the necessity of using the term focus as it is now broadened to all play styles, then I might be more inclined to believe they aren't in fact, focusing on PvP as their end game.

"I played Skyrim for about an hour before I gave up in utter frustration at the inventory system. Since that time, I know that mods have been made, but by then it was too late for me."

This is why I never play a game at launch now, there is usually an issue that after a patch or mod a couple of months after launch will be fixed.

But if you have to play it at launch because people are talking about it, that's your look out.

Great article.  Looking forward to ESO

Btw - For the last image in the article, the javascript ViewImage method doesn't like the apostrophe in "M'Kai" in the image file name.

This.

Bill is apparently very new to the world of Elder Scrolls and to the games in which said world is featured, therefore he gives this game somewhat unfounded praise in his article.

Unless the developers were dumb enough to make Daggerfall a copy of Skyrim, which would boggle my mind but it is not unexpected entirely from people who thought AvA and faction lock are just what people want in their ES experience, Daggerfall simply cannot and most of all should not feel "familiar" with an hour of playtime in Skyrim under your belt.

First: I didn't write this article, Suzie did.

Second: I took it to mean that the game itself felt like an Elder Scrolls title, even with her limited exposure to the series.  YMMV, and Suzie can comment further, but that's how I read it.

 

 

to that I say, anyone who has only played TES for an hour should not even be writing an article on it and telling us how familiar 'anything' is in comparison.

review all you want, but she should not try to convince a disgruntled fanbase that their worries are unfounded, which we all know was the point of those comments.

So many haters for a game that hasn't even done a significant beta yet.  I'm an old guy, been playing MMOs since they were text driven MUDs.  Definitely not a fanboy, but I will be playing this game when it releases.  Keep reading posts from people saying this is just another WoW clone.  Graphics aren't even close.  Game play, who knows until we get our hands on it?  Ok, I'm probably just clueless, but I don't really understand people wanting a game to fail before it even gets set for release.  Like I said, I will be playing this game.

I don't get the hate for TESO in here. I can understand a little apprehension as it is the first TES game in the MMO world but most of the dribble on here attacking the game makes me think there is an agenda against the game.

I dare to wager that most of the haters are on here are on a rival games payroll.

 

 


its just these forums and its not just TESO either. people here would give this article tons of praise if it was written in a negative light.

the mmorpg.com community feeds off negativity.

to be fair, she didn't compare it to skyrim, she compared it to ES games, which could have been any one of them.

was skyrim the only ES game she ever played just for an hour? maybe so.

i am 100% positive had this been a negative article, most of you guys wouldn't say a word about her limited time in skyrim, that is for sure.

Great, a bunch of morons bashing a game they're not in beta for (I am) who i'll have to listen to bash it some more when the game is released and they play it but end up sucking at it.

Game still looks too MMO-y. I really don't like the "shininess" of the graphics engine, like how hair looks like shiny plastic. It looks bad and just reminds me of other generic, shitty MMOs. Most of all it doesn't like like Elder Scrolls.

I hope they just give it a sub. I'm tired of cash shops, they suck. Plus it'd further discourage me from playing it, making my choice to stay far away from it all the easier.

I am going to give it a try, for one reason it is not a clone game, it is a hybrid, has theme park and sandbox elements, a lot folks in this thread seem to have no clue what the game is about, and make silly comments, but I don't care ,I am still gona try it. I have played all the  ES stand alone games over the past 20 years, I am looking forward to being able to play in an Elder Scrolls world with my friends.. :)

I wish people would get off their damn high horses and quit bashing every freaking MMO before it even releases.

I love Elder Scrolls as much as the next person (been playing since Arena/Daggerfall). But jeez guys. Don't you realize that part of the problem is people having WAY to high of expectations for a game? And quite frankly, I don't think you guys know what you want...

They tell you you get an open world to explore across all of Tamriel. You bash it.

They tell you there will be faction lock in order to maintain the 'War' feel of the game. You bash it (even though you get 3 factions and not just 2).

They tell you, you will be able to visit the previous locations that you've seen in other ES games. You bash it.

They say the graphics, while being lowered ever so slightly, will be gorgeous. You bash it.

etc etc etc...

I'm sorry. I just don't see why anyone would pass on this game, just for the sake of some imagined bar of perfection that doesn't exist, and no one really knows what would be required to meet those expectations.

I'll be pre-ordering TESO ASAP, and I'll be sitting down and really letting myself sink into the world of Tamriel on release; fun stuff right along with the imperfections, simply because it's ONLY A GAME!

Just have fun.

I'm really excited for this MMO... not because it's Elder Scrolls but because of how it's turning out. It's like the MMO experience I've been waiting for. Elder Scrolls Online is not going to feel like past games. It's a departure just like Final Fantasy XI was to a degree.

“No path is darker then when your eyes are shut.” -Flemeth

I am still in the "not sure if want" phase. The visuals look good. But stuff like this:

"I noticed that respawn times in this particular build were very fast. Given the length and difficulty of some of the battles, it was very easy to get caught by a second pack of monsters while still winded from the first."

 

REALLY makes me groan. Oh really? Again? You know how I HATE that. All this super fast respawn, you walk a path, kill mobs, and EVERYTHING is right back behind you.

And don't tell me "oh but maybe it changes", "it's only for beta"! IT NEVER IS. Games which had fast respawn in beta ALWAYS had fast respawn later just the same. It's an explorer's nightmare. No time just to wander relaxed and look around. It's what I loved about Elder Scrolls: that NOT every inch is packed with mobs and respawn is NOT within SECONDS!

 

In the screenshots with mountains, you can INSTANTLY see those are cosmetic mountains: none you can ever climb. Also a minus, which I guess came with the Hero Engine. SWTOR was full of confined areas and no-go areas.

*sigh*

A forum is a place where people can discuss about different opinions. So what I don't get is, how people react offended when they come to a forum and then find... well different opinions. If a different opinion offends you, what are you even doing here?

The lack of full PvP and risk of losing your items as it should be for this game is a turn-off for me.  Sounds like less risk then it should be for the game it's being based off of.

Separating into three factions?  Is this to be like Dark Age of Camelot?

Quests I really do hope they have substance of the games, otherwise it's just another dull quest everywhere game.  *Walks on by the 37th NPC in town offering a quest*

Exploring was what made ES fun, finding a dungeon and fighting whatever monsters in there and then the scaling of the monsters based off your new level.  How many times I screwed myself by doing this and then fighting the main story in the early ones.  Though it's the exploring I loved not the leveling, which is just another tiresome mechanic that can keep you away from your lower leveled friends.  Skill Level... that's another story.

I was drawn to the article by mention of Daggerfall, but I am not sure where the comparisons are coming from. It appears you are comparing Skyrim to Elderscrolls Online? Daggerfall was a game and city that took place way before Skyrim, Morrowind, Oblivion et all.

I just dont see the Daggerfall connection. A pity as I was excited to revisit it.

Game now is jsut fancy pew-pew thingy without any note about balance and economy or gearing and end-game activity. And for know game looks attractively only for TES fans.
