I love numbers.

95% of all MMO-Veterans will clearly not buy this game. Free Trial, we can talk about that. But spending money on such a cheaply-made and unfinished product? Some people clearly haven't played this game yet. Still you pre-order. Making mistakes must be fun.

So, over 50% of the voters so far will either never be buying or may buy later. 

Although, I'm in the 'never buy' camp as I'm not an Elder Scrolls fan I hope the game does a lot better than this poll shows.  


 

while you are at it, go look at this sites game list rankings and have a good laugh. lol

 

Yeah, the next big thing in the MMORPG world not even on the TOP seven... I wonder why that happened. All the previous AAA MMORPGs were on that top seven, most of them at first position.

I won't draw any conclusion, just exposing facts.

Playing now: Archeage, WoW, Landmark, GW2

Top 3 MMORPGs played: UO, AC1 and WoW

Honorable mentions: AO, LotRO and GW2.

I think the best decision anyone can make regarding this, no matter what side you're on, is to not preorder the game. Why? Because you will be showing them that this type of behavior is not acceptable and should not become common practice. Not preordering really speaks volumes because they are important for sales projection. When Blizzard announced that players real names would be displayed on their forums for all to see with their RealID feature, thousands canceled their preorders for Cataclysm and Blizzard ended up not pursuing RealID for their forums. Even if you still end up buying it on release day, it will still get the message across and will discourage them from doing it in the future.

Another thing is that I don't like preorder bonuses. They just try to make people feel bad or feel like they are missing out if they don't preorder the game. Rather what they should do is actually make a good game that people will want to buy.

Well, that may be true.

However, a big number of buyers are probably new to MMORPG (coming from Skyrim) so it might give them a new good experience. Whether they'll stay for long or not, that is another story.

The very best thing about it tho is, I wont be playing with most of the people from this site going by your poll. That alone would have made me throw money at the game. It being a sub game is another reason.

 

This. This is why I am hopeful for a quality P2P game.

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

Seriously, I cannot believe all the nerd rage and whining about paying a bit more for the Imperial Edition. If you want the extras you have to pay for them. Game making is a business not a charity.

and wow never has been, your point? lol

whats funny is this game is getting more attention than all of them. you know your game is on the map when it incites so much hate, like ESO does.

what about SWTOR? look at all the hate it gets here yet its one of the more successful mmo's to ever launch in the west.

this website and the people that come here clearly does not represent the opinions of most gamers.

oh and the game rankings and hype meter is a joke, always has been and probably always will.

I've been posting here since 2001 (had another account before that I deleted for a while), and WoW definitely was topping charts here in 2004 at its release.

no it wasn't lol

i have been posting since 2004 on another account as well and it was not. maybe right when it came out it briefly did but shortly after it was gone.

wow was the first mmo people loved to hate.

besides, you clearly got the point i am sure. :)

So was it, or not. You seem confused. And ES doesn't even make it in the top seven, while WoW stayed there several years despite the supposed "hate" for it here. So what is it?

wow was the first mmo people loved to hate.

besides, you clearly got the point i am sure. :)

I got the point indeed, another entry on my forum block list ;-)

........ Really?

Right? Because there isn't any Q&As and we have no idea what progression is like with skills or anything. There aren't a number of videos of combat, PVP, dungeons or anything like that. We are totally in the dark.

 

Oh come on you expect some of these posters to listen to facts or do their own research.  They just copy/paste the same talking points from website to website most of which is misinformation and straight out lies.  They are entitled to get everything for free and any game that comes out that is not free will get this response.  Even free games are not free enough for some of them. 

I've played in beta since last summer. I know quite a bit about the game. However, I cannot tell you anything, can I?

It's not essential unless you plan to play an Imperial.  For the segment of people who honestly want to play Imperials, it can be argued that any outrage they feel is legitimate (even if I, who also want to play an Imperial, do not share it.)  But for people that have no intention to make use of the option anyway?  For them, this "outrage" is so much manufactured nonsense.

Especially given the fact that those of us who have participated in this forum for months, know full well that some very active participants in this thread have openly expressed time and time again their contempt for the game and had no intention whatsoever of playing in the first place.

OP  1/30/14 11:04:56 AM#217

As I already said, I do not post on forums of games I do not play. Never have, and it won't start here. I'm still in the closed beta, I'm still hoping (thanks to my feedback and many other's) that they will change some decisions both design and pre-order wise so that I can buy this game without feeling like I'm giving encouragement to a new level of money grab attempt in the genre. I'm a huge ES fan and I don't give up that easily.

But once the game is released, if I do not buy, you won't see me here again (unless I buy the game later if they finally change things). I'm not like those guys who are still on GW2 forums 1.5 year after they stopped playing the game.

Until then, I've all right to express my feelings, and I will do so. If some people can't take a less positive view of their future-ex favorite game, they may just use the forum block feature.

'nuff said.

Lets say the cash shop sold 7 out of 10 races and every faction got 1 race to choose from (Argonian, High Elf, Orsimer). Now lets say that I want to play an Argonian. I think it would make sense that poeple would be upset if those other races were in a cash shop in a sub based game even if they didn't actually want to play them. I don't think it's unreasonable to expect all 10 Elder Scrolls races from a box + sub game without having to go to a cash shop and spend $20 for a race.

SWTOR is the greatest mmo ever!

I'm normally an early adopter but I'm going to wait until the barebones digital standard is lower than 55 euros.
