Thanks for the update Mike! Good to know that this is a non-issue and Zeni is taking care of it. One less thing to worry about!

A lot of this really depends on just how extensive, and what type of add-ons are allowed to be put in place. Many add-ons are not much more than providing some additional information to the user, or assisting with micro-managing small details so you can focus on other things (ie: paying attention to an actual fight taking place rather than having to stare at bars / icons). On the other hand there are others which can offer clear combat advantages over someone who doesnt have the same add-on. For example in WAR we had an add-on called Target Ring which initially seemed pretty harmless, it simply put a more easily distinguishable mark around your selected target, but the upper hand it gave was that the target ring persisted even after an enemy was out of LoS and allowed you to track the enemy's movements behind buildings, walls, etc removing the ability for them to lose you in the terrain and sneak around to flank you. You could see exactly where they were at all times.Meanwhile the other player without Target Ring would lose track of you behind obstacles, giving you the upper hand.

Any add-ons which simply provide some extra information, assist in micro managing, etc I don't see a problem with. In fact I find that most players who rely on some of these tools are actually pretty bad because they have no clue what to do when caught in a situation where they cant do what the add-on tells them they should be doing (such as using a certain skill while they are under the effect of a debuff that prevents it, or are out of range to use it, etc). They forget how to actually play and react on the fly without being told what they should be doing and wind up just floundering around trying to figure it out while getting killed.

Those that allow you to see things that you cant normally see (such as position of players that you cant actually see on screen) should not be allowed.

How does this make sense? im a Casual player in all of my game's FPS,Sports i still end up in the top tier. Elders Scrolls was not built on just MMO players , On a leveled playing field i'm sure an Elder Scrolls Series Vet will be competitive in this game.

Hope the API gets nerfed to shit. Anything not covered by the default UI should not be available in mods. If you want a screen filled with stats, where a mod presses all your 48 hot keys for you, then go play any other  mmorpg (WoW, Rift, EQ2, etc, etc.... It has nothing to do with being prepared.   You lot that wiki fights and look at videos before doing anything new in a game are the casuals. The hardcore people are the ones that make those videos for you to watch. If you played any other RPG you probably have your second screen opened up to a walk through. Mods don't make you a better or more skilled player. They play the game for you. Stop kidding yourself.

What ZOS implied is pretty clear: API being that open is just for beta testing and they are going to set some limits after launch.

So what are you afraid of ?

Nothing...we are rolling our eyes at you and others that need the mods to PvP in an MMO

Reread cetra's post. He is saying that people that don't use addons are bad at pvp and would always get's steamrolled by ''serious mmo players'' . 

He had that reaction after we had information concerning a most probable nerf to the API. So the guy will loose his advantage over people that prefer not to use addons.

So that  is why I am asking him why he is afraid of a leveled play field.

No he is trying to imply that any half serious MMO Player has an advatage over me. ESO Combat is about Timing as well as stats, it's real time action, with human input numbers don't always win, this isn't a card game as long as the playing field is fair.

I guess it's in that word he used..."serious". You may be casual, but can still be a serious MMO gamer.

 

I'm only half way paying attention tonight....but I see your point :D

A good UI will always be better at bubbling up important information.  Look at the heads up displays used by the military, and it doesn't get much more real time than that.   Plain and simple the more information you have at your fingertips in an easy to digest way, the more power you have to act intelligently.  Seeing how the default UI doesn't relay much information, there will probably be a couple replacement UIs that are commonly used right from the get go. Most players using standard will likely not be performing well compared to those with a custom interface, and players interested in optimizing performance will feel like they need to use an addon.

 

This will have a huge impact on whether or not people feel like they are playing a TES game or just another MMO.  The thing is even people that are playing for the TES experience, a large number of them likely are also concerned with their performance compared to other players and are left having to choose between the TES experience or performance.

Years from fighting ai (elder scrolls vet) vs years of fighting ai and other players (most mmo players)?

Thank heavens.

Enjoy your advantage while you can modders.

So you're saying you think the information should be easily accessible in the base UI? I agree.

Yes that is what I'm saying, It is a learning curve i know from the beta but don't think an elder scrolls Vet cant get with the program if it's fair for them and not just a big card game of who got the best numbers, we live in a time when everything is online just because a person doesn't play MMORPG's, doesn't mean they haven't been facing humans in other game genre's online in a competitive fashion, i for one chose not to play mmo's cause i only like M rated RPG's like elders scrolls,
