I would have respected the author more if instead of using "Zenimax has taken a game that needs to balance perfectly on the edge of a sword.".....he used the term "edge of a knife". Then he would have used a Galadriel quote who I respect more than any other fantasy character lol.

If the game looks like it isn't going to do well for some reason, like the starting area, then developers change it.  This isn't about "because the fans", it is about "generating enough revenue to cover costs".  Not to say that this is bad, just to say that it isn't particularly unique.  If you know something is going to impact your bottom line, you address it.  Whether or not they are the the best ever is something we will find out based on how they handle post release, fixing issues and getting out new content in a timely manner.


I also agree that this type of editorial does hurt the credibility of mmorpg in general.  At least if it was post release out of the blue article about the developers I could see merit, this appears to be nothing more than a fluff piece to drive hype and sales.

 Proving once again that no matter how much time and money you spend to try and make your player base happy haters are gonna hate. They cant't even bear to grudgingly admit that ZOS might actually be trying to make the game better for the player base in the slightest.

Honestly? ^This


Some of you people posting wear your asshattery on your sleeves. You are so see through and act like we don't know it. Keep posting against every game or company...the Devs aren't paying attention to you. They are paying attention to those with real input.

So calling Zenimax one of the best companies the has developed an mmo is silly.

The have add thing and fix thing is in the beta version the have fix few bug and the add Imperial White Horse which will be in CE and only people that have perorder CE can buy so i wonder when was last time you play ESO beta and ofc then cant add new version for then we would get full game serious man think before you write next time.

Actually, it makes perfect sense.  When you are doing a test  of your infrastructure you will want to control as many variables as possible over the course of the test so as to more accurately judge your progress.  The client being uses for the last few stress test was introduced in January while on the PTS they have continued to test updated clients.  The real problem for some is the confusion caused by companies that run a promo of the game while calling it a beta test.  Thus when a company such as Zenimax does an actual beat stress test some people think it is a pomo of the game an expect a current if not a gold client of the game to be uses

"So I ask you, is Zenimax one of the best companies that has developed an MMO?"


It certainly looks promising so far. Not only have they shown that they actually ARE listening to their prospective customers, but have also made some significant changes to the game in response to that feedback.

They have certainly achieved something that I thought was impossible, in that they managed to somehow turn generally negative perceptions of ESO into generally positive ones in a relatively short time. That's no mean feat.

But it's too early to induct ZOS into the "MMO Developer Hall of Fame" just yet. Their performance in the months after launch will clinch the deal. So far they are strong contenders.

ok at Zenimax there are people who are hardworking to build this game and every aspect of the game and is harsh to blame them as bad people, but the publishers/top head are truly assholes from my point of view and they just want $$$, so if it was to make a bad release yes they had to respond cause the critics were really bad.

so no Zenimax is not the best company maybe one of the worst, just their developers are very good cause they were able to deliver many changes in so little time, and its sad for those people..


about the numbers, ok somewhere i read an example of McDonalds well here in Greece they have been removed and only on places with tourism they still exist just for US tourists :p

I still think the subscription will put a lot of people off. In the beginning a lot will try it out, then stop playing (and paying) once they went through all the best features of the game.

As a 14 year mmo vet maybe I'm just burned on the current status quo but this game has so much hype and so little game. This game needs more game. 8 months of development to even consider releasing it. Also, it needs complete core redesigns.


World- It's big... boring... unrewarding to explore.... beautiful...packed with stuff i don't actually want to find... It has a look that makes me want to wander around but then nothing is really there.  Who goes exploring to find stuff that sucks.

Combat- It's a joke. 5-6 buttons. you can create all the millions of abilities you want.  You can put 5 more on another weapon.  this isn't going to create deep meaningful combat. It's crap pure and simple. The balance and cookie cutter arguments are just pathetic. How in the world are you going to be an interactive force on an ever-changing battlefield with no range in what you can do?  Think about every motion you do in an average day. Pick 5. No right? you couldn't even leave the house . 

Group interface/the MMO side of the game- What group interface? why is this so bad? Just try to make a group with someone find them and trade an item. This is terrible. 

Story- Well its ES. There's story all over. I can't hit them hard on this. I liked what I've seen of it.

Economy- Did noone tell them about FFXIV? Wow....

Taking it to the next level- They didn't. Might be back a few levels actually.

The bright side- It's just a few sweeping changes from being awesome. So many easy concept fixes can be made... in 8 months...  They already have a lot of systems in that can make everything great they just chose to cap them all off so it can't be great.  This is one of those games where it just has this epic and awesome feel then you realize the few things you can do now are all you'll ever do... Short ascent to a capped experience.  Get rid of that add in a few ballsy game mechanics and it goes from being a small shallow game with a big story and world to a pretty awesome game. Will they do it? We'll see if this article is correct I guess.

I'm sorry but the moment you put things like a race behind a paywall you lose any right to being a good guy developer.

Doesn't make them morally bankrupt or evil. It just makes them developers who are in it for the money first and, by extension, not a good guy developer.

There are developers out there working their asses off for basically no monetary compensation whatsoever purely out of love for the games they're making, those are good guy developers even if they aren't producing hyped-up AAA MMOs.

I'm sure Zenimax Online is a fine bunch of people with some great devs there but this article is really just twisting the good guy words.

This is a business not some fan game where they slave over the game for you for nothing. Of course they want to make money. That does not make them a bad developer.


The fact that they listen to feedback about the important things - adding the first person, npc collision detection, improving the starting experience (tutorial has been revamped too), adding more clutter and using the beta to see what kind of add-ons are unfair for competitve PVP impresses me.


Usually on a MMO beta you see the patch changes and it is generic moving a stat 0.1 in some direction and a few bug fixes.


So now I feel like, this developer will make changes in the future. There will be improvements. It gives me a feeling of trust.

Right, so exactly as I'm saying they're just a normal developer.

Not an evil money-hungry dev that will sell out anything for an extra buck. Nor a good guy dev who'll sacrifice profit for the sake of their users by providing things like the complete set of races for free.

Just a normal dev.
