Unless things change regarding preorders - not buying it. I was interested in faction vs faction and this preorder thing means that faction pride will be non existent, like in rift or guild wars 2. Also forcing players to preorder if they want to play their favourite race but in a different faction is just a sign that developers don't have a clear vision for the game so anything will be for sale sooner or later. If they can change their mind like this about factions how much until they make the game f2p (not that I have problems with f2p but some people have a dislike for it) ?

Forgot about not lifting NDA before allowing preorder - this combined with how much they push people to preorder is enough to show how much trust the developers have in the staying power of their game.

I agree that they are in fact getting rid of a certain audience with the decisions they have made. I just think the audience throwing money at the game now are the ones I would not enjoy playing a game with.

NDA still being in effect is really awful now, given people are now parting with their cash.


I completely agree with this. NDA should of been lifted before they started accepting orders. 

Why would they lift a NDA when it does not benefit them in anyway?  Happy people are often quiet while unhappy people are the loudest.

By not lifting the NDA prior to taking money you appear to be hiding something.  Whether you are or not is irrelevant, the perception will do the damage.

Just like in the movie industry, if a film halts any reviews of the product, or pre-screening you can bet there is something worrying them, and if it worries them it sure as hell should worry you, the consumer.

 

Did they walk back the faction lock? That was the first big hurdle for me.

There wasn't a voting option for "didn't get in beta yet and won't buy a game without trying it first," so i'm waiting without much optimism for an open beta or a trial period after launch.

If you pre-order.

 

The perception they are hiding something will harm them far less than videos of a garbage game all over the internet.  I haven't played in the beta and I haven't agreed to any NDA terms.  I have no idea if the game is any good, but I seriously doubt it's more than a huge cash grab at this point.  You would think if the game was awesome, they'd want testers filling the internet with that sentiment.

I am more curious about the non MMORPG fans out there with their new Xbox One or PS4 who will likely see this as a new "elder scrolls" game.  I know my kids are very excited about the idea.

... "us mmo fans" I hate to break it to you, but this forum is not anything to do with MMO fans, its mmo whiners desperatly searching for their prefered "fix" ... nothing but complaining, critism and negativity if the game does a few things wrong.... these are more like niche people here taht don't find any comfort in modern MMOs, that want a niche... thats no more a fan than the people who will play ES regardless of these MINOR issues.

seriously.... our group of freinds were annoyed by the race limit... this fixes that, granted pre-order form sucks.... but my god, something as trivial as that not to play through what will likely be a decent experience?

what else have you got? EQN in 2015? Star Citizen and Moba's laughinly being labeled as MMOs on this backwards website? a bunch of indie games with new ideas but horrible production values to the point where they are not fun to play regardless of their fresh ideas?

The new ultima online that looks so dated Iquestion how anyone can get immersed.

but yea.... ESO is now bin material because of pre-order bonuses....

need to get your heads screwed back on.

The phrase "cash grab" needs to be banned from this website.  Companies exist to make money.  All games are a cash grab.

For me Elderscrolls games are singleplayer not mmo's. I won't be wasting my money on this. I will wait for the next Elderscrolls singleplayer to come out. And it looks like 2014 will be a good year for open world free roaming singleplayer RPG's. Do a Google search for up coming RPG'S games this year.

That is a good point and also very true. However it doesn't benefit me in any way to buy a game I know barely anything about. And of course generally speaking the longer the NDA the more suspicious I grow...if the game is so good lets hear about it...let some hype build. Unless they are totally certain it would get bad press...meaning they know why...meaning they are choosing to hide it instead of fix it. This company is way too shady, I feel like giving them money would be tantamount to getting cute little gizmo wet...

Wait and see

It's the sad state of the genre. The next big title has as many threads discussing issues with it's business model than issues with the game itself.

First there is nothing until now to say that TESO will be a decent game, beside the fact that is using TES lore and as so many games showed it before , lore is not enough to make a good mmo.

Also a lot of people, me included, want more than a decent game ,they want a mmo with staying power not something you play for a month or two. Changing things which are so important to lore and game play (especially on pvp side) so close to launch and linking it to selling preorders is a sign they don't expect (or care) about staying power.But it seems game companies have nothing to worry, as the reaction of so many people just showed it, there are enough who will buy anything with TES (or star wars,star trek etc) attached to it and then a few months later complain on forums that the market is full of garbage mmos.

So what would you suggest we use as a replacement term for when companies get greedy and release titles, that in some way, should not have been released as they were?

Definitly going to buy but not going to pre-order. Will be there at or around release for sure.

Can only say that I never say things like this without any ingame experiance.

If the game was sooo bad, why arent there TONS of people breaking the NDA to tell you about it? In EVERY game thats released in the last 8 years, if the game has stunk, theres been so many NDA leaks it wasnt funny.

 

Could it be that because the game might be good, the testers actually value theirr accounts and wont break the NDA

No one is begrudging them from making money.  What they are opposed to are blatant cash-grabs. All games are not cash grabs, making a quality product and asking for a reasonable remuneration for it is not considered a cash grab.

Making a crappy product, locking key features and offering a limited time pay-to-win pre-order prior to dropping the NDA for your product is generally considered a cash-grab however.

Guessing you didn't visit these forums during or immediately after any of the beta weekends. It was full of people breaking the NDA to say how horrible the game was.  The staff have since cleaned these up and removed any with actual NDA breaks.

 

To answer your second question.... No.

The term is used to imply no intention of long term retention or survival.  Get in, get rich, get out.

For some products this is par for the course and as you said not a big deal as long as the customers are generally aware.

Many play MMORPGs though for an extended and protracted experience with others...hence the implication of short term can be worrying.  Not to mention the implications to quality and lack of concern from the parent company the term implies.

You should buy the $500 lifetime subscription offer when it comes out too!  That's less that 3 years sub price!  No way it will go box price + cash shop (and no sub) within 6 months!

 

Having played it, if I could afford it, I would. Twice. One for me and my wife.

Especially since when things go F2P after being P2P, they have been known to throw in all sorts of bonuses for former lifetime subscribers. The other points of Ruien are just icing.
