Well, I'll put this out:

 

I've received 5 beta invites without even asking for them, just for registering on their site back in the day when the game did look potentially interesting to me. I only bothered to install the game 1 of the 5 invites, till I found the game lacking personality, with dull combat and boring in general. Even then, they've kept spamming invites and surveys that I didn't bother to fill. The last few invites even had attached "friend's pass" that I also didn't bother to pass to anyone. Even as I type this, I have 2 more invites sitting in my email for the coming weekend. I guess they just don't get the message, do they?

 

But to the point - I've received around 7 beta invites (5 for myself plus 2 "bring a friend" passes) without even asking for it, and I've only used up one of them, during 2-3 hours. Sure looks cool to say "5 million beta invites" but looking at my own experience, if out of 7 invites only 1 has been used, that number will be definitely look much less cool.

 

About the OP saying that they'll have 10 million subscriptions within the first year... yeah, I'll just not comment on that, because I might hurt someone's feelings.

My opinion is my own. I respect all other opinions and views equally, but keep in mind that my opinion will always be the best for me. That's why it's my opinion.

Why are you trying to throw out predictions on this board anyway?  All you going to get back from them is their prediction(opinion).  And guess what?  Somehow they are right and you are wrong,  If you stop trying to put threads on here to convince people they would eventually move on to hating the next game.  Probably Wildstar within the next 2 to 3 weeks.  Let it go already.

I agree Nielson counts as a measurement

but its difficult to compare with other mmos that are giving concrete sub #s

I don't think it has to compare to anything else, it just shows that at one time, that game was at the top for its day of release.  eventually technology gets better and so more new games came out and people were dying to see a new game like ESO come out, but what they got was GW2 and SWTOR.  So the MMO market right now needs a game like ESO, this will have the same impact on MMO's as the past when they were first released.  It will do something else, that hasent been done since wow also though. It will bring in new MMO players to the MMO world.  something people back in the day thought was impossible until they seen WoW's advertisement campaign worldwide.  ESO is very appealing to a skyrim and single player type of player and will do the same thing to the single player industry, which is massive, as WoW did for the MMO industry.  That's the viewpoint here.

When was the last game you seen, where less people bought it then the number of players they had in beta?

Dude you need to get off the 5 million.

It was stated that 5 million beta accounts were created not 5 million beta tester played the game.

Comeback with concrete numbers on the amount that participated in beta then maybe your numbers might work.

During this time, Skyrim was the most-played game on Steam by a huge margin, with double the number of players as Team Fortress 2, the second-placed game.[118] In the United Kingdom, Skyrim was the 9th best selling title of 2012.[119] In June 2013, Bethesda announced that over 20 million copies of the game had been sold;[120] of those sales, 59% were for the Xbox 360, 27% for the PS3, and 14% for the PC.[121]"

  

 
What the wiki entry leaves out is that Bethseda cut the price of Skyrim around Feb'12 (with further reductions to follow etc.). So assuming that all the copies that had shipped by mid-Dec had been sold the maximum sales of TESO will be c. 10M. Bottomline: people are price sensitive and with TESO having a sub ....

Lets see i bought most mmo's that came out in recent years.


WoW
GW
Warhammer
Aion
Rift
SWTOR
GW2
Just to name a few well known triple A mmo's
And gues what :P ?
They are all free to play except 1

I wont be buying ESO.....its just not good enough to justify a box price + sub in this time and age where there are so many options to choose from, both free to play and buy to play.
All sub based mmo go free to play before their 1st birthday.....


Sorry its just not going to happen....realy it wont.
Not even close to 5 million
Zanimax should be happy to sell 1 million and pray they sell 2 million wich is insane with all the options availeble to us atm.

I just hope for the people that actually like ESO that the game will at least continue past the first year with a sudo-successful transition to F2P.
Your predictions are as much of "Out To Lunch" as this topic's prediction's 
Given the past instances..what has more chances of happening? ESO going F2P in a year or ESO gaining 10 million in a year?

Majority will tell you its former.


F2P in a year but don't automatically assume it will go F2P even if it has only like 300- 500k subs.

i don't think any mmo can get 10 million subs in the NA and EU markets alone.

it would have to be B2P to have a chance IMO and that's just because of box sales only, not concurrent players.

how many people around here alone actually created more then one beta account, because I don't see 1 million people making 5 accounts around here.  Most beta testers are not die hards who want to get into Daily testing beta.  

100k people might be sadistic enough to want to be a daily beta tester and create 5 accounts to get in, but I don't see any more then that, and even that number is generous compared to other game betas.

Yeah, random people making random statisitc based on numbers pulled off their asses.

 

So here is my statistic:

 

I'm a die hard Elder Scrolls player, and won't be touching ESO with a ten meter pole. So in my own vast experience, 0% of the people who play Elder Scroll SP games will play ESO.

My opinion is my own. I respect all other opinions and views equally, but keep in mind that my opinion will always be the best for me. That's why it's my opinion.

Then where do you think all these 5 million beta accounts are coming from?    Other MMO games?   I don't think even half of those players are MMO gamers, and think most of them are ES fans, why do you think after one year, the game is looking more and more like Skyrim,  why do you think they forced ESO to put in all the features  of skyrim like first person view ect.

Over the years on these forums, people like you have made some pretty wild predictions, but nobody has ever made anything as wild as this...seriously, you've topped them all.   I recall people claiming Aion would crush WoW,  Warhammer was suppose to bring in upwards of 5 million.   LoTRO, was suppose to bring in a minimum of 4 million.   SWToR was suppose to bring in 6 million according to a couple of users.   GW2 was suppose to be a WoW killer.  Same with Rift.   Now you come along with this prediciton and claim 5 million just to get started and by the end of the year 10 milllion?  Seriously?  

With the way this game is, and it having a sub fee...this game might sell 2 mil(I'll be surprised if it sells 3+ mil), but it's player retention will not even be anywhere near that.   They'll be lucky to maintain 500k subs after 6 months.   I'll give it maybe a year or a little after and it'll go free to play...and it'll be struggling to retain 350k players(if that!).   I've been playing these games for long enough time, and I am 99% correct on my predictions.   This, like many other themepark games with PvP as it's main driving force do not do well in NA markets.   SWToR, GW2, Aion and Warhammer tried to use PvP as a huge selling point - they all failed to do very well and nowhere near what people like you predicted.   

If anything, all you are doing is creating a negative effect and this will hurt the game more than help it...seen it, been there.

Played the beta, would not buy.  Pretty graphics, nice music, but more of the same crap.  Game obviously created for console, action combat felt completely disconnected (mobs hitting me from 10 feet away because I rolled), in addition to dozens of other huge flaws.

10 million -1

When was the last game you seen, where less people bought it then the number of players they had in beta?

Dude you need to get off the 5 million.

It was stated that 5 million beta accounts were created not 5 million beta tester played the game.

Comeback with concrete numbers on the amount that participated in beta then maybe your numbers might work.

how many people around here alone actually created more then one beta account, because I don't see 1 million people making 5 accounts around here.  Most beta testers are not die hards who want to get into Daily testing beta.  

100k people might be sadistic enough to want to be a daily beta tester and create 5 accounts to get in, but I don't see any more then that, and even that number is generous compared to other game betas.

Again you just seem to have 5 million in your head.

Show me an interview that states 5 million people BETA TESTED the game

Meaning how many of the 5 million actually tested the game hope this is clear enough for you.

I agree Nielson counts as a measurement

but its difficult to compare with other mmos that are giving concrete sub #s

I don't think it has to compare to anything else, it just shows that at one time, that game was at the top for its day of release.  eventually technology gets better and so more new games came out and people were dying to see a new game like ESO come out, but what they got was GW2 and SWTOR.  So the MMO market right now needs a game like ESO, this will have the same impact on MMO's as the past when they were first released.  It will do something else, that hasent been done since wow also though. It will bring in new MMO players to the MMO world.  something people back in the day thought was impossible until they seen WoW's advertisement campaign worldwide.  ESO is very appealing to a skyrim and single player type of player and will do the same thing to the single player industry, which is massive, as WoW did for the MMO industry.  That's the viewpoint here.

Says who...you?  I seriously doubt this very much. 

Yeah, random people making random statisitc based on numbers pulled off their asses.

 

So here is my statistic:

 

I'm a die hard Elder Scrolls player, and won't be touching ESO with a ten meter pole. So in my own vast experience, 0% of the people who play Elder Scroll SP games will play ESO.

Then where do you think all these 5 million beta accounts are coming from?    Other MMO games?   I don't think even half of those players are MMO gamers, and think most of them are ES fans, why do you think after one year, the game is looking more and more like Skyrim,  why do you think they forced ESO to put in all the features  of skyrim like first person view ect.

 

Very simple. Beta accounts are free, and Elder Scrolls franchise has a huge fanbase, as someone said earlier, Skyrim sold many millions of copies. Most if not all of those people saw no harm in trying ESO out FOR FREE. After being disappointed like I was, I foresee that most of the real Elder Scrolls fans won't pay for it and much less endure the subscription model, simply because ESO is not an Elder Scrolls game, it's a mediocre imitation designed to be a cashgrab that doesn't deserve to carry the IP's name.

My opinion is my own. I respect all other opinions and views equally, but keep in mind that my opinion will always be the best for me. That's why it's my opinion.

I know lots of people that signed up multiple times for beta...I did, 5 times!  Got 3 invites.   To friends that didn't get into beta, I gave them my extra keys.   It is not uncommon for people that are into MMO's to sign up multiple times for a beta invite.  It increases their chances of getting in.

Over the years on these forums, people like you have made some pretty wild predictions, but nobody has ever made anything as wild as this...seriously, you've topped them all.   I recall people claiming Aion would crush WoW,  Warhammer was suppose to bring in upwards of 5 million.   LoTRO, was suppose to bring in a minimum of 4 million.   SWToR was suppose to bring in 6 million according to a couple of users.   GW2 was suppose to be a WoW killer.  Same with Rift.   Now you come along with this prediciton and claim 5 million just to get started and by the end of the year 10 milllion?  Seriously?  

With the way this game is, and it having a sub fee...this game might sell 2 mil(I'll be surprised if it sells 3+ mil), but it's player retention will not even be anywhere near that.   They'll be lucky to maintain 500k subs after 6 months.   I'll give it maybe a year or a little after and it'll go free to play...and it'll be struggling to retain 350k players(if that!).   I've been playing these games for long enough time, and I am 99% correct on my predictions.   This, like many other themepark games with PvP as it's main driving force do not do well in NA markets.   SWToR, GW2, Aion and Warhammer tried to use PvP as a huge selling point - they all failed to do very well and nowhere near what people like you predicted.   

If anything, all you are doing is creating a negative effect and this will hurt the game more than help it...seen it, been there.  

I would have agreed with you in 2007.  But its not 2007 anymore,  up up until now, when a game that's worthy of single player gamers topped with the fact that we are living in a world that as become more global then ever,  we have seen schools across the nations teaching computer classes to students who are now turning 17-25.  We are starting to see the baby boomers of computers and of course adults now own consoles more then they have ever in the 80-90s.  We are seeing adult hobbies go from cars and other things to gaming.  We have such a wide and bigger diverse market now then ever before, and its going to get bigger as more and more students age.  Its almost mandatory that a kid learns computer skills now.  

So while I think your statement is correct, its correct only for 2007.   You will see my statement be more on line with the rise of instrest in MMO's and other gaming other then single player games.   You can hold me to that.

99% correct huh?  Noob.  If you were a pro, you'd always be right.  So, since you're track record is less than perfect, there is no reason for anyone to give your opinions any weight now is there?  

Seriously though, that claim is just as far out in left field as the OPs.

I believe that they will achieve 10 million users by the end of year - going F2P.

Here is a few statements I would like to talk about from this article:

 

1): "If you’re reading this, you’re probably one of the 5 million people that have registered for the ESO beta, and likely participated in one of our large beta tests."

My thoughts: That is a HUGE number of registerd beta testers, if even a fraction of them buy the game, were seeing going to see at least 5 million starting. I don't recall a game in history with this many registered beta testers. The testers numbers tend to be lower then the people who buy a game, so How many do you think are going to buy the game, if were seeing that many testers alone?

 

 

2): "Based on the existing number of our beta signups and because we anticipate that the ESO community will continue to grow after launch, we plan to add capacity to keep up with demand in both our North American and European datacenters."

My thoughts: They looked at those beta numbers and expect it to grow even larger at launch. I'm saying 10 million in the first year easily after seeing those beta registration numbers.

 

 

3): And just to be fully prepared, we are adding overflow servers in the event we get even more players on day one than we are now forecasting.

My thoughts: They have a plan to make sure there is overflow servers for millions more on day one if there is too many people. Something I think future games are going to need considering the larger number of gamers we are starting to see.

 


4): If player demand overwhelms our planned capacity and a queue has to be formed, we will offer waiting players the option to begin playing right away on an overflow server.

My thoughts: They are doing this part right. people don't want to wait in ques, so this is a great option. Everything you get on an overflow server will allow you to bring back to the megaservers. Only problem is you will not have a friend list because its not hooked up to the main database.

 


5): And as many of you have asked, the answer is yes to one additional benefit – we will offer various subscription discount packs beginning on April 4.

My thoughts: I sure hope they offer a lifetime... This game is going to be around for a very long time.

 


So there it is. Some pretty solid reasons this game is going to be 10 million in the first year. Not only are they showing they have world wide players coming to the game in droves but they are prepared for it also. You take that and add it to the A+ customer service they have, we got ourselves a 10 million sub game in the first year easily.

 

Maybe this was already answered, but do you mean they will sell 10 million boxes, or do you mean they will have 10 million subs?
