The game is pretty fun so far, when you are not sitting in a 2 hour 45 minute queue. Got home from work and jumped in queue while I made dinner, got done dinner and was able to play for about 25 minutes before the game and glyph just decided to close on me. Now sitting in que again, this time 1 hour and 17 minutes. 

Was not going to play the game because it was launching F2P, seen how they had it set up and decided to give a try because it looks like you pretty much need a sub to play, lol F2Pers :P

I'm not interested in more servers. I want to play with my real life friends who started on existing servers.

That's when you realize technologies like "mega servers" aren't that stupid nowadays.

But how would a mega server work with open world housing?

Exactly. Megaservers sounded like a good idea, but in reality they destroy MMO's.  People need to get what made MMO's so great back in the day was not the newness of the genre, it was the communities created within them. Archeage has a chance to recreate the old style MMO community like no other game in recent memory. A megaserver would absolutely destroy any chance of that.

I disagree.  Megaserver and a community are not mutually exclusive.

He isn't concerned about a community, he wants to just play with real life friends. More like a multi player game instead of an mmo. 

Hoping this game is going to be great!

One concept discussed during the twitch live stream was the possibility of the casters spell backfiring on them.:) An element of danger when applying your craft, nice.:)

Why is it that only casters have ever suffered from something like this throughout the history of MMOs, but nothing for melee characters?  PnP games had things like fumbles, trips and critical misses to add flavor to a melee class.  I think it's unfair to always add weaknesses to one type of character and not apply it to all.

Really? I'm pretty sure they haven't covered Melee combat yet so I would wait and see before declaring the end of the world.

MJ has said before you will miss swings, trip and have critical misses so not sure what you are talking about.

Man o mam I really love the directions they are taking on the things I have seen so far.   Yesterdays abundant interconnected abilities presentation was extremely exciting.  And now with today's magic presentation I can clearly see they mean business when they say "this ain't your Dad's MMO" but a new and exciting approach to the old pen and paper games like D&D.

Absolutely impressive so far.  I am really looking forward to this games release.

I agree 100%.

Reading the forums over there and seeing a few of the more vocal people the last few months trying to theory shape the game into a MOBA or some kind of FPS type game was getting me turned off a bit, but to see MJ and team coming out swinging with their original vision still dead in the sites has made me excited for the game again.

Glad to see them keeping up with what they said they would deliver from the start is really refreshing. The passion they all seem to have still is also contagious and it comes off like they are really having fun making this game. I hope they find the special recipe and make an amazing game, can't wait to hear/see more.

It's a stupid idea and the company to make that game would go bankrupt because you would be the only one playing it spamming general chat like you are in this thread.

I think you are delusional and maybe off the meds...

I don't know if its Maryland as much as it the state you live in. I live in NJ and they charged me $16.04, 7% sales tax. It looks like you are paying OH state tax of %7.25 with the charge of $16.08.

Zenimax has nothing to do with tax, I always have to explain that to people who come and pick up their cars when their bill is higher with tax that its not us, its the state that takes it share.

I wouldn't waste any money on it, the game is going to be F2P. I have no plans to play it when it is free either though.

heh i messed with the game in russian and i loved it too so duno just dropped the 150 but it spulling form wrong account damn site didnt let me choose : ( all well

i work hard for money i spend it anyway i want too so dont worry about that

Then you didn't really have to ask here if you already bought it lol, unless you were just looking for people to applaud your impatience to drop $150 on a F2P game in Alpha that you might like.

Was invited to play the Beta, hated the game but tried it anyway to give a shot. Uninstalled a couple days later, nothing for me in the game.

I think they did questing really well. I have been having fun in the world so far, even though I'm only on the second area.

Posting anything positive on this forum you are looking to attract the people that can't wait to pounce on a thread like this though. Ready yourself to read a 1000 word essay about how the game ruined someone's life and now they are homeless.

I would guess it will be a VR Facebook with a design like a big lobby. You can probably go do a fantasy dungeon run or go play a fps map or even do some farming in farmville. Have your facebook character as your game person and grow him in many games within the lobbies, sounds lame just like Facebook.

Ouch, that had to hurt the project. Sucks for the people involved, guess he just put another nail in his reputation.

I come here to read the posts of professional trolls anymore, I will probably get banned for this post too. Pretty much every single thread looks like this:

Pete

"I like red flowers, they are nice to look at"

xXBillXx

"OMGawd how can you like Red flowers??? Blue is so much better"

Pete

"I think it's fun to water them, they also have a nice smell"

xXBillXx

"Fun is subjective, I think they stink... 1000 word essay about how Red flowers smell and are not fun to water"

Pete

"Dude, I was just saying I thought they were nice"

xXBillXx

"I can't believe anyone would say that about the red flowers, 500 word essay about how blue flowers are better than red flowers"

Pete

"I really don't care man, just saying I like the Red flowers"

xXBillXx

"You care enough to post on a public forum... 1000 word essay about how red flowers are a cash grab"

Pete

"....ok dude piss off if you don't like red flowers"

Pete Banned for trolling.

Ignore the man behind the curtain, nothing to see here, we don't need to see his identification....move along. Man if you are going to try and disparage any thread that seems negative toward your game you could at least be more subtle. OP is at least trying to turn a negative into a positive.

Just relaying what I saw during my time in game with my own eyes there Mr. Wizard.

Sure $15 a month isn't expensive until you look at it being $180 per year and then I see that as ALOT to spend on one game. 

I at most play for 80 hours spread out throughout a year, that is around 6/7 hours a month. Am I really going to have to spend $180 to be able to play when I want? I have so many other games to play, so much else to do in my life, one MMO isn't all I play. 

 

So if I have to pay a sub... I just wont bother. 

Seems like you should look at facebook games or somewhere else to get your gaming fix. 6-7 hours a month in any mmo you're not getting much out of it. The genre does not support that casual of play, atleast I wouldn't play an mmo that did.

ESO is a online ES game - Skyrim is a single player ES game.

It's hard to understand that I know. 

I know its confusing and everything, but breath deep and calm down.

Breath in....... and out. Breath in....... and out, there you go.

Do you feel better?

If not repeat breathing exercise until you do or fall asleep, when you come too just know that ESO is still an ES game even if you think other wise.

I'm just a bit confused. You would rather not spend 15 bucks a month. For an option where impulse buying can go anywhere from a few dollars to several thousand over the course of the next few months. Where as if you bought a game and subbed for a few months your total investment would only be a little over a hundred bucks. Then we have to look at your sense of balance. How can you justify that balance if someone can basically combine paying and playing extensively to outclass you at every corner? This mind set is one of the reasons why P2P takes such a hit. Consumers get tricked so easily by the "illusion" of free.

You can't use common sense in this argument. :P

mod can lock this topic ? we got enough of them, eso curently P2P for the standar they want to keep ,

and yeah that not there yet but that the first months and if people whould stop to be immature and think everything should be right now perfect , the game will get there, the base game realy amazing and fun.

that not B2P or F2P because it not this type of game.

they are no reason talk about it, use you logic.

 

you need to be the one you talk about how this game should be either B2P or p2p. because that not either of those and that just rude to say people should explain to you why the game p2p.

if you want know, can tell you a litle bit some reason.

- services ( yeah no matter how you bitch or think they are the worst ever, they are way better that b2p or p2p game dev )

- no cash shop ( no the horse not one )

- REAL update and a team working daily on the game ( no f2p and b2p game dont have it )

we pay for these service the total of .50 cents a day something ANYONE can afforts, if you cant, you should not have enough time play mmorpg.

my food last night cost me 4 months subs omg.... i get a damn cofee each day before work and that 4x more that the price daily... when people with stop bitch about how game like mmorpg should be FREE ??

they are not these type of game, they require BIG WORK, TEAM, DEV , working DAILY. accept it or go play your shooter or other single player game who require no update, daily, patch, big team working on it....

SERIOUSLY ??!" IM TIRED OF THIS SHIT.

 

this is a discussion forum.

 

Why is it wrong to have a discussion.

 

I asked for a argument from the other side for once for those against ESO going B2P/F2P.

How is that Rude?

 

I thought thats the whole point of the First Amendment. TO give people the freedom to speak out against other thoughts.

Well I see a lot of arguments for why its payment model should change,

 

i would like to read the arguments for the other side of this debate for sake of a civil discussion.

First off, like many people who bring up the First Amendment, you have very little clue as to what it actually covers (little hint: does not apply to a company's forums page). But that's beside the point. Not sure why you are making this an "ESO" F2p thing. Most people (and I'm one of them) don't like the F2P model for any games for various reasons. My reasons are:

  • Created bad game communities.
  • Rarely is it really "free". Often they turn into cash-grab/pay-to-win crap fest that end you costing more money than a $15 monthly sub.
  • Guess I'm old fashion. I like the old and tried sub payment model. Just my personal preference. 
But it has very little to do with ESO specifically.. 

I don't get it why people think F2P / B2P community is bad... Have you actually looked at those communities and compared them to P2P ? I've played WOW, EVE, RIFT, GW2, GW1, SWTOR, DCUO, Defiance, Aion, Runes of Magic, Flyff, lineage and so on...

In those games I remember that the worst possible communities were in EVE, WOW, DCUO and Defiance (which practically had no community because of it's pathetic social system).... So as you can see those games are P2P, F2P and B2P and it really doesn't matter what sub model a game has because from my exp it's not really a relevant factor. I usually see it being pulled of as an excuse on forums and stated as a fact - like here, but when playing games there's no rule for it and it certanly isn't true that F2P/B2P makes a terrible community. As an example I can take GW1, which had the best possible community I've came across in games and GW2 isn't far from it as well even tho I don't play GW2 as much as I used to.

The old and tried sub payment model is exactly that, "old" and less and less companies can make a profit in todays mmorpg market because it's simply too BIG and people aren't hanging around in just 1 mmorpg for long enough, as we've seen from many examples in the recent years.

Devs take what they can and if they see that people will buy whatever crap they throw at them in the cash shop then that's how they'll do it. Afterall they're here to make a profit so pushing cash shops to p2w limits isn't strange, but if people wouldn't buy those stuff they wouldn't bother putting them in. With that said... I still haven't spent anything more than few dollars in a F2P game and if I see devs turning towards p2w I just stop playing, there's plenty of other mmorpgs to fill the gaps :D

Go play them, leave the sub games alone.
