If you don't agree with what the company is doing, don't buy their product and ask your friends to support you by also not buying the product.  As long as lots of people are willing to throw money at game developers, this kind of stuff will continue.  Remember the huge backlash when WoW released a $25 mount?  Lots of people still bought it and now this is a standard business practice.

 

As long as gamers continue to just pay whatever is asked just to get in first or to get some virtual item, we will continue to get hosed and developers will continue to nickel and dime us and then move to dime and quarter us.

Oh... care to tell me the last P2P sub model mmo that had a race in the pre-order or CE edition?

Shadowbane is the last I can think of, and someone else pointed out STO.

The thing about all the CE perks like this is... If it's not just a reskin of an existing item/mount, they usually become opened up to the rest of the community pretty quickly after launch (within a few months). My guess is that Imperials will be an unlockable race, and CE just gets the key up front.

All they need to do is state that the new race will be open to everyone after a period of time, say 3 months.

 

People will buy the CE for the new race and they should let everyone else will get it later on, they must know that in an mmo it's not having soemthing that is important, it's having something first.

LOTRO has two classes gated behind the Moria expansion. F2P folks without the xpac can buy the classes with Turbine Points and they are expensive. Rift has a similar thing with class content gated by an expansion.


I think the point being made was that it is available somehow. But according to what we've seen so far, if you don't preorder you'll never have access to this race.

After reading the comments on this thread, I am starting to agree with the majority of people.  I remember Matt Firor shooting his mouth off about 3 faction, race-specific pvp, just like Dark Age of Camelot.  There are alot of DAOC alumni who perked up when Firor spoke about ESO's pvp mirroring DAOC.  

Now they unlock every race into any alliance?  That is a huge mistake.  I was looking very forward to having race/alliance pride.  The one thing I hated about Guild Wars2 WvW, was that you were fighting the same races.  There was no real "war".    Dark Age of Camelot  did a great job evoking "realm/alliance pride", by having races and even classes unique within each alliance.  

This is a huge mistake.  There are a lot of new AAA MMORPG's coming out this year, and it will be a very competitive market in the near future.  Between Wildstar, EQ Next, Archage, Repopulation, WOW expansion, and more, it is a very big mistake for ESO's developers to start breaking promises and  "nickel and diming"  their loyal fans.  This is a great way to lose your "potential" customers. 

The MMO gaming community is a very tough group to keep around. We don't like to be lied to nor taken advantage of.  Too many past companies have tried that.  They are all out of business or on their way out the door at present.  There is such a huge MMO gaming community what is just dying to give our hard earned money away to an honest, talented MMORPG Development company, that supports and listens to our needs and concerns.  The one company that can provide this service will be a very prosperous one.

my biggest issue with it arent the preorder CE items themselves.

Usually you can see how developers are aiming to develop the game over it's lifetime. This one seems to be kinda like a "Singleplayer-fast-moneygrab-game" due to all the stuff they are currently pushing out. You know, Box price, Subscription Fee, Ingame Cash Shop AND a cashgrab CE Edition. All in all this seems like a very short "project" of Bethesda - just grabbing as much money as they can before killing off the game, going free to play or even worse: shutting down the servers.

All these things just point into that direction and i don't feel supporting them until the game truly proves it doesnt want to go this way.

Just my to cents, opinions are welcome! :)

Well the only thing we can do is complain and talk with our wallets. Hopefully, if not enough people are buying the CE or standard game in general, they will grudgingly give us all the content we should be getting with the sub price. This will only stay acceptable as long as people acquiesce and pay for it. And ZOS obivously prepared for the shitstorm to come, I know green man gaming has a 40% coupon for the game, marking the $80 Imperial Edition down to $64. If that doesn't spell a lack of confidence then I don;t know what does.

i saw someone mention this a while ago about the leak, but saved judgement until a official release. Tbh this isn't a great move, if you actually read it isn't just the race "Play as an Imperial and play in any Alliance. Gain unique bonuses, crafting styles, gear and more!". So you get armor that people can't get, crafting and other bonuses. You also have to remenber races have special passives and skills as well, which play a significant role in game-play unlike in other games. So i have to agree with OP about this one, for a p2p game this is not wise a stupied move. Lets see how this develops over the next few months, but don't think it well bold well.

Star Trek Online's lifetime subscription option included an exclusive race, and at launch it was sub only.

I stand corrected, there was another really bad game did it also.

It will be interesting to see how far companies take this considering that even this move is being defended heavily by many fans.  And I'm speaking honestly, it will be very interesting.

So now, what do the defenders of this game have to say? Yesterday you were saying that the Imperial race was fake and Zenimax wouldnt do that. Today, its even worse, cough up to unlock races from factions on top of cough up to play a race.

Has this swayed your opinion of the game?

Access to the imperial race is only 20 bucks more than the standard edition. I think they are banking on this fact- that most people will not be upset with restriction of content by a relatively small paygate.

I personally think it's fine. It's a good thing it wasn't any more than $20, because they would have been heavily criticized otherwise.

Yeah, they're lucky they dodged all that criticism.

SWTOR is the greatest mmo ever!

Just look through a few threads, you'll see plenty of excuses to make it ok.  The popular one is "all CE's have special bonuses, this one is not different."  or "if you want something good you have to pay extra for it."

This does seem like quite some hardcore bullshit. On other hand being able to play an Imperial in Aldemeri Dominion makes me overlook it. Good job trolling ES fans Zenimax.

I believed it yesterday.  And I agreed with it then too.  Though I actually don't like that races aren't locked.  Not because it violates lore, because it doesn't, but just because I think restrictions add more meaning to the choices you do have.

Ugh. I really cant understand people like that. It really baffles me. Things like this are not isolated anymore, if one publisher/developer gets away with it, they all start doing it soon rather than later.

Unless you are specifically going to play the Imperial Race if it was standard for all, You being butthurt over it just screams crybaby gamer syndrome.

The hilarious part about it is that the Imperial Edition isn't a good buy because the Imperial Race, its a damn good buy because you get a free mount on every new character you make...That's always a bloody good bonus to have in any game.
