Azzamasin, this isn't going to be your MMORPG and it's obviously not your TES game. My expectations for The Elder Scrolls Online are high like many others. I have been heavily invested in the world of Tamriel since that horrible game, Arena. It wasn't until Morrowind that I was indeed hooked on the gameplay and the lore as a whole.

The Elder Scrolls Online isn't about providing a sandbox or traditional MMO experience. It's trying to take what we love about the most recent Elder Scrolls games and put it in a MMO-like environment. Now your argument is legit! From current trends it seems that theme parks are on their way out. Plus, your hardcore MMORPG fans dictate the success of these games even if they're the vocal minority. If there isn't enough to do after reaching that final experience level, it's those players who tell the rest of us that it's a waste a time. And quite frankly, what they have to say works. Look at DC Universe Online's first 3 months; if it wasn't for the F2P model I'm pretty sure that game would have disappeared. And SWTOR suffered greatly from this.

Why do I want to play The Elder Scrolls Online? I get to see the land of Tamriel and it's people. The idea of being immersed in this world that I have been invested in for over 10 years! But not only that, I get to share it with someone else. And I can visit places and see vistas that I never witnessed before. Not to mention, dreamed of seeing.

Yes, end-game is very important and I've seen plenty of debates regarding that topic with TESO. But I've heard nothing but good things about the current built of this game without someone having to go fully into detail and breaking the NDA. Guys like the ShoddyCast(love their TES lore series) and even Jesse Cox keep me excited enough. And I've read the good and the bad on several different builts:

This built makes questing feel organic and spontaneous like traditional TES games!

The built I played feels way too much like a traditional MMORPG.

 

But after E3 from what I manage to find out, the game is reaching a sweet spot between two types of gameplay styles. I am well aware somethings will need to be sacrificed but I am hoping I can spend hundreds of hours into this game while enjoying the magical place that is Tamriel. My dream for this The Elder Scrolls Online would be a unique story-like PvE experience that's so good, the lack of end-game content at launch wouldn't even be a factor. I can only dream...

If not, there is always hope for Everquest Next.

Too bad it's supposed to be an MMO, and not a singleplayer game.

SWTOR was a decent singleplayer game too. But a shitty awful MMO. This looks to be the same.

 Are you breaking NDA or are you trolling?  For your sake you better be the latter.

FYI he hasn't broke anything, everything he says has already been said by the devs in  public so don't play the court judge please.

Never said I wasn't.  Again my only intention is to showcase the faults, perceived or not the game will have.  I am tired of playing an MMO for a few months then having to quit because the endgame sucks or there is nothing but more of the same at the level cap.  I used to be extremely hyped for the game and to a degree I still am.  The only reason I "bash" the game is to hopefully influence more people to speak out about shortcomings because the Devs have already proven to listen to the community by changing 1st person as well as adding exploration of the 2 alternate factions.  Hopefully they can change the game's endgame too.

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!

 Exactly.  We don't need a good single player elder scrolls game, we need a good elder scrolls MMO.

There's some lovely filth down here.

I think you folks are looking into this way too much.  I'll just say this:  My favorite game of all time is Morrowind, and I love Skyrim.  I played the beta for ESO this past weekend, and had my doubts about the game going in.  After the weekend, I can say I will absolutely be playing the game at launch.

 

Take that as you will.

 Exactly.  We don't need a good single player elder scrolls game, we need a good elder scrolls MMO.

I agree with you. The question is..what do you like out of your MMORPG and what major change would you like to see. Of course I want to see more sandbox games. But I do dream..

There are gamers who have spent hundreds of hours with The Elder Scrolls more so than a MMORPG. And I'm not just talking about rolling cheese down a hill. What if The Elder Scrolls Online has a unique way of presenting itself similar to the single player experience while still providing engaging MMO-like elements. And it's enough for you to keep coming back and still discover the unexplored.

I've always wanted an MMORPG with a rich PvE world that still has mystery over the hill that doesn't end at the level cap and isn't always in a raid dungeon. Not only that, my questing hasn't reached it's climax at max level and the fun factor(plus the story) overshadows the gear grinding.

Just like you..TESO will not be the game I play if it's like SWTOR, where the fun factor is in the story yet everything else is lacklustered including the general quests. The one thing that gets me so excited for TESO is that people who have gotten their hands on a beta built are getting side tracked by things that make them deviate from the main quest-line just like in a traditional Elder Scrolls game. Not only that, but they're immersed. And that alone has made me put in hundreds of hours into Skyrim, Oblivion, and Morrowind. Not only investing tons of time in one character but in multiple.

What I describe might not be The Elder Scrolls Online; perhaps something else later down the pipe line. But I would love to think that even after 3 or 4 months of playing TESO that there is still much more to see on my general travels through Tamriel.

 First off I would like to see them add player housing.  Considering the game was pushed back 6+ months then there is time to add that feature in.  Next I want to see more information on Adventure zones and it's implementation added in before launch.  After that I would like to see the following:

  • Alternate Advancement system
  • Progression based gear.  Something similar to Aetheria from Asheron's Call http://acpedia.org/wiki/Aetheria
  • Deep meaningful gear system with hundreds of different choices, tired of everyone looking similar in an MMO.  This was a huge draw for me in Skyrim, downloading the different armor and weapon skins.
  • An open world Boss fights similar to Vanilla WoW's Emerald Dragons
  • Repeatable faction quests, and when I say quests I mean quests, not FedEx tasks
  • In Game Gambling system
Little things to do other then combat.

no matter how much complaining you do, this is not going to be a game you can play the same character for years, its just not.

i don't see what they could possibly change to make it any different in that regard. just except it for what it is, it will be a game that should be fun for a few months at least, which is more than i can say for any single player game that will likely be the same price or cheaper.

I am looking forward to playing ESO because I get to visit lands I have yet to see for myself and from everything I have heard the exploration you see in ES games is present in ESO.

 Sad I really want a return to a game that can be played for years.  So tired of MMO's lately.  In the 2+ years Since I've quit WoW I have never stayed in an MMO longer for 4 months.  Rift, Gw2, TSW, Neverwinter, etc. etc.

You know in all honesty, the only MMOs I ever played 2+ years where the ones I seriously got involved in the community. I really think that is the main factor as to whether or not you stay or go. A game can be the worst game in existance, but if it has a good community you like, you are very likely to stay either way.

I know for certain ESO has been pushing to make your time in the game with others as best as possible. They even have a freaking test for you to take if you want to play with those who have similar interests. What more could you want than that? Hopefully it works as intended. All I know is that is going much further then most MMOs go.

And yet... I'm willing to bet you he will be there in the open beta with the rest of us.
Never said I wasn't.  Again my only intention is to showcase the faults, perceived or not the game will have.  I am tired of playing an MMO for a few months then having to quit because the endgame sucks or there is nothing but more of the same at the level cap.  I used to be extremely hyped for the game and to a degree I still am.  The only reason I "bash" the game is to hopefully influence more people to speak out about shortcomings because the Devs have already proven to listen to the community by changing 1st person as well as adding exploration of the 2 alternate factions.  Hopefully they can change the game's endgame too.

 

no matter how much complaining you do, this is not going to be a game you can play the same character for years, its just not.

i don't see what they could possibly change to make it any different in that regard. just except it for what it is, it will be a game that should be fun for a few months at least, which is more than i can say for any single player game that will likely be the same price or cheaper.

 Sad I really want a return to a game that can be played for years.  So tired of MMO's lately.  In the 2+ years Since I've quit WoW I have never stayed in an MMO longer for 4 months.  Rift, Gw2, TSW, Neverwinter, etc. etc.

Finally you wrote something I can somewhat agree with. SImilar to you, since WOW I have yet to play a game even close to the length of time i spent there, but that is probably because that was my first MMO when it was released and before that I mostly played console games. EQ2 kept me a little, like 5-6 months, Lord of the Rings Online about 6-9 months, most others about 1-5 months. The more I play these games, the more I start thinking Ill be playing a lot more console games again when the PS4 comes out for the first time in 10 years. I may even play this on the PS4, not sure yet. It depends how irritating the aim is, but since its soft aiming and not like Skyrim, maybe the controller will work fine for my normal long range characters so I am not in a major disadvantage versus melee (which is normally why I prefer PC for aiming with a mouse). Anyway, I'm hoping this game keeps me for at least 6 months, but I cant make any judgement whatsoever at this point without playing it. They still have at least 8 months to go. I wouldn't be surprised if it got pushed out into the summer.

There Is Always Hope!

I hear you man, but that just doesn't happen any longer. You blame the games themselves for that while I believe it's all about the constant barrage of new releases and our fickle dabbling nature.

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

 It took me a while to come to grips with but I disagree with you on that its a constant barrage.

 

I look back at Asheron's Call, DAoC and WoW, the games I have played longer then a few months and all of them have something in common.  They offer content and things to do that are not combat or PvP related an they all strive to build strong social interaction through various non combat activities.  It's why I have come full circle on EQN and hope and pray that the sandbox elements in that game are enough while still retaining some of the more fun aspects (for me) for an MMO.  Hoping the MMO elements are good enough and innovative enough because I fear that unless we have the best of both worlds that game will not capture my attention either.  I.e. having a tab target 6 hotbar MMO is not what I want out of EQN so hopefully the traditional MMO elements have been implemented in such a way to give me hope going in.

 

I'll still hold out hope for TESO and hope they can add in elements that make the game fun for me but I will not and can not stay silent with the direction the game is going.

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!

Why the hell Zenimax is repeating all the time now that this game is NOT a MMO but a multiplayer game. I don't get it, most of the known features are typical for MMOs. Do they have to hide something?

If it's the same video that I think then your kidding yourself if you think this is anything remotely similar to a Skyrim.  If it's the 10 min leaked video from last weekends test then I know your fooling yourself.
