Of the 211m that quote is pointing out, ToR is a significant contributor, but not the primary. Those services listed are the primary contributors of their F2P revenue. ToR is listed last and as significant because more revenue was made by the other games listed. If ToR made 165m it would have been listed as leading their F2P revenue.  They can't list ToR as the primary contributor because that report has to follow guidelines set forth by the SEC, which means that it has to be truthful in regards to earnings, even if it's kept slightly vague.  

BF4 premium is providing more subscription revenue than ToR, as stated in the report.  

 

 

Geez we are going in on four years!!! Don't you think it's time for you to move on from a video game you don't like and don't play. Trying to spin the words into your favor shows the desperation most haters have these days towards Swtor.

I don't hate ToR.  I just understand that when the report states it's a significant contributor it means that it's generating enough revenue to warrant mention but isn't the primary contributor. 

EA states that they have 80m in subscription revenue, with BF4 premium being the primary contributor, and that several game services with ToR being a significant contributor make up 211m in revenue for their F2P services. 

In order for ToR to be making EA 165m it would either need to be the primary revenue contributor in their F2P or subscription based revenue, their report says its neither.

OP,

I dont think people are saying that AA is not a Sandbox, but its more of a Sandpark than a Sandbox.  I got that feeling from the minute I stepped into the Beta.  The game right away felt as a game on Rails.  That bored me fast because I have played UO and SWG and I can be dropped in a random city in the game and learn my way.  I dont need the rails because I been there done that.  I think what the core problem is, is that the game is on rails until later into the game and you really dont get a chance to see it early.  Most players who enjoy sandboxes enjoyed Starting somewhere and not having a preset path.  

This, 1000 times this.

Was very turned off by the linear questing start.

Been playing Darkfall instead now, way more what I had hoped ArcheAge would be.

So you're saying that you can't just go out to some area with level appropriate mobs and farm without doing quests in AA. 

Thats all you're saying by mentioning darkfall, because the only difference is that AA allows you to do quests if you want, and DF is only now in the process of writing up quests (they even asked the players to submit their own to be added to the game) for people that don't want to just go out and kill with no purpose other than raising stats. 

It's the world of Warcraft mentality. 

Hes a crafter so that means he harvests all of the resources himself, turns those resources into materials himself, and then turns the materials into items himself. 

He knows he has limited labor points, but instead of specializing in one area of crafting he decides to do it all himself. 

Hes not happy being a miner and mining ore to sell, or being a weaponsmith and buying ore from miners. He insists he should be able to do it all. 

 

The problem isn't labor points, it's player mentality.  When faced with a limited resource the player refused to adapt and instead insists its a faulty system because the limited resource prevents him from being self sufficient. 

The same player will also disregard the market to a large extent because he's not really crafting to play the market, he'll craft to supply himself, and then complain that he doesn't have the LP to do everything else in the game like identify items or farm. 

LP isn't designed specifically to slow down crafting or to force you into the cash shop, it's also designed to require the player to decide what he wants his character to be. 

Every single person that has made this same tired complaint has said the exact same thing.  They can't mine, craft, farm, etc. without needing to buy LP pots.  Not one of them has said that it prevents you from specializing Ina field and then working with another player who specialized in something else.  Each one has complained they can't be self sufficient and do it all alone. 

The OP is the problem, not the LP system. 

Hi, all the people that think superdata gets information directly from the publishers, please contact me for some very lucrative investment opportunities.  

OP says he doesn't want to argue about his opinion, then lashes out with insults in damn near every follow up post. 

He is right though, his opinion is worthless. 

Where did superdata get its information on ESO? 
It's terrible

Guys, calm down. I said the game is terrible. It still is. There are only 4 races. Classes seem boring. Fighting looks stupid. The sound is bad. I can't comment about content and things to do, but it can be the best game out there content wise, it's already a no for me. The difference in MMO gamer mentality between Asian and Western market is huge. As much as the few people here want this game to succeed, it won't. It simply is not made for the western gamers. But of course, fanboys of every upcoming MMO have claimed that "this is WoW killer". And every single one have failed. How many MMOs have actually succeeded at keeping a healthy player base? I'm no fan of WoW. My best MMO experience is from Lineage 2 days. Which frankly is similar to this game. But there is only one Lineage 2. And no, you can't have my lvl 2 character.

That's a lot of "I didn't play the game, but it's an Asian MMO so it's terrible."  

So the game is similar to L2, which was your best experience, is made by the same guy that made L2, is also Asian, and has a lot of silly grunting and moaning. 

L2 was one of my favorites,and I think your opinion is totally worthless.  That's my worthless opinion. 

 

Or is it because your female character wasn't all breast and panty shots out the gate.  I'm betting that's why you keep praising L2, and trolling AA.  

I don't understand how anyone can afford a sub while having to feed such a big horse. 

Or is that the OP's issue?  He's unable to pay the sub for the benefits without starving that horse to death. 

It doesn't matter what the anti-cheat software is, it's a safe bet the OP would have come here and told people to stay away because of it.  

Its an agenda against either trion, the game, or they want to do something that the software prevents them from doing.

You only have to see the players online and be in a guild to know it is worth buying. The content locusts have moved on, thank the divines, but they still find time to post against TESO. When will the MMO community learn you can never please a locust?

Oh and do I need to learn how to use my red colouring pencil as well? :)

It's easier to marginalise a fairly stated viewpoint using negative labels, rather than a thoughtful rebuttal. Fairly typical behaviour though, unfortunately.

BTW, I think crayon would be more your style. :-)

Indeed it is a label, but I have done posts elsewhere going into this more deeply, not going to repeat myself again. I am not sure if you are a content locust, as I get the impression you have not found another MMO as yet. The locusts don't tend to leave until the next meal is at least in sight.

As to you your position being thoughtful, perhaps, but it has been a thoughtful bash since you joined this site. The idea of joining a site to relentlessly post against the last MMO you played seems odd to me. But each to his own.

It would seem I may need a yellow crayon as well. :)

 

Around the same time they learn you can't argue with an irrational fanboy?  

Like one that repeatedly spouts that the people who don't like the game are just content locusts, high atop a horse he paid extra for.  

Overhauling a bunch of the content makes it worth paying for?  

Jesus, that is by far the most flagrant fanboy nonsense this guys written yet. 

Article one: its a good game, people just don't understand. 

Article two: the games not dying, I swear! 

Article three: the players don't like the content so they're changing it, you should give them money. 

 

Who the hell is trolling who here?  

ESO's problems can be summed up with five letters. 

F I R O R 

History repeats itself because people are generally incapable of learning from the past. 

The only thing Brad has shown an ability to do is play on people's desires.  He had all the resources he needed to make this game when it was called vanguard and he screwed that up. Now he's throwing around all the same pitch and tag lines for another game and people are buying it.  

He has a record of pissed of former employees, who keep pointing out the same ill behavior on his part, and some of you still think he's not the problem. 

Conmen prey on the naive. 

Trion said they would be running 5 day beta events, not just weekend ones. 
Good bye

Really depends on the job. If I was looking to work for a company that makes videogames, then probably yes.

The CEO of Starbucks would disagree with you, he hired this guy as the chief information officer because he listed that he ran a guild in WoW.  

I think the point of a resume is lost on a lot of people, because its to supposed to be a list of previous jobs.  

Did you type that our incorrectly?

My iPad and this forum don't play nice together.  *it's not supposed...

Honestly I think that CEO had rather limited standards for hiring the guy. If anyone looking to get hired for most if not all of the possible positions in the company I work for put MMO experience on their resume they would literally be a laughing stock. And come on...managing a guild in WoW? That's not even close to as complicated as running a guild in some other MMOs can be, so as laughable as it is to put videogame experience on a non-videogame related resume it isn't even a good example.

Managing people is a skill set. 

All your post says is that you're not in a position where you need to hire someone with that skill set, or do a job that requires it yourself.   

Being able to show that you have multiple years of managing and organizing for 100-200 individuals is a valuable thing, regardless of the environment.  It's not something many people can do, or have experience doing.

I only have one question. What is wrong with you WoW kids? ESO is awesome. Did you know that Zenimax gamemasters have gotten together and created their own guild ingame. What game does that.? This is the best MMO experience I have ever had long before WoW ever existed

 

EVE does that. 

Not that it makes any game better, although EVE is a far better game. 

Did you know that Firor stated they chose to make the game similar to WoW because they felt that if they made it more like an ES game then MMO gamers wouldn't understand how to play it?  Yes, indeed.  

What was that you were saying about WoW kids?

I agree with the overall point the OP makes. 

However, it doesn't make DF a good game.  It's got the worst melee combat in any game I've ever experienced.  Oblivion had better melee and that's saying a lot.  

If they had implemented something more like DCUO's weapon combos, blocking, and dodging I'd probably still be playing the game and would be willing to overlook many of the other faults I have with it.  

Like the economy, the huge grind, the massive disparity between newer players and older players, the prep laces housing and castles, and magic banks that allow you to access items anywhere in the world and results in a shallow economy.  These are just a few things, that along with the god awful melee, makes DF no better than ESO and not really a worthy substitute for a real ES MMO.  

BTW, mortal online is far more like an ES game than DF, and if they had had ESO's budget and a team of devs who knew what they were doing it would have been a great game.  

i think the conversation is not about if Darkfall is a good game or not. The conversation is on how its more like ES then ESO is.

You would be correct if the OP wasn't also pitching the game as a substitute for ESO, for those people looking for an ES MMO and found ESO lacking. 

You can read the whole thing like I did, or just skip to the very end.  

well true.

I think given the sensitivity of the subject he should have made two seperate threads so the point doesnt get confused.

Pretty sure the point of the OP is that DF is more like ES than ESO and so you should try it if you're looking for something more like ES.  

Quality shouldn't be disregarded just because its more similar.  

Rat is more like beef than tofu is, but I wouldn't eat either if what I want is a steak. 

In the same vein, if I wanted a game that was more like an ES game, I wouldn't play either DF or ESO, I'd just go play an ES game. Neither are worthy substitutes.

However, if I was going to recommend an MMO that was most similar to ES it wouldn't be darkfall, it would be mortal online.  You also don't have to spend a penny to find out that MO lacks quality.  

 

To be clear I played DF1 for 4 years.

For me DF1 was a great game. ESO doesnt have a feature list I give two f8cks about.

Is DF1 exactly like ES? no, is it the closest thing out there in the MMO space? yes

Is DF1 fun? to me it was a blast.

I know Sean.  We played at the same time. 

PS: and I disagree.  As far as an MMO that is most like an ES game goes, that would be Mortal Online.
