Are ESO Subs Going to Plummet?

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

With the announcement of The Elder Scrolls rebranding itself to The Elder Scrolls: Tamriel Unlimited and utilizing a Buy to Play model a lot of people are questioning if it is worth subscribing to the game after March 17th, myself included. Let me explain why.Posted Jan 28, 2015 by Ryan Getchell

Tamriel Unlimited - The Surprises & Questions of B2P

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

So here we are, as reported earlier, The Elder Scrolls Online will be rebranded as he Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited as of March 17th on PC, with the console versions released in June under the same format. Buying the game will allow access to the full content released before the rebranding, and “downloadable content” will be included with the now optional subscription.

Tamriel Goes Unlimited on St. Patrick’s Day

Elder Scrolls Online -  General

The rumors can end now, folks. It’s official, as of this moment in time. Elder Scrolls Online is ditching its subscription model in favor of a model more akin to Guild Wars 2. Simply buy the base game, gain access to all of its content, and never pay another dime. In addition, the PS4 and XBOX One Editions will be launching officially on June 9th. It’s all coming up Tamriel this year, it seems. However, that’s not quite all she wrote. Read on for the full details.Posted Jan 21, 2015 by William Murphy

Understanding Champion Points

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

At the end of December Zenimax announced what players are going to receive when the champion system is released, 30 champion points. If you had at least one character veteran rank 1 or higher you’d receive 30 champion points when 1.6 goes live. It doesn’t matter if you’ve spent the last 9 months playing the same veteran 14 character, or even had eight veteran rank 14 characters, you’d still receive 30 champion points. As you can see there is a major flaw in this.Posted Jan 14, 2015 by Ryan Getchell

Six-Month Sub Disappears & Those F2P Rumors

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

Recently, some players of The Elder Scrolls Online noticed that Zenimax had quietly removed the option to subscribe for six months at a time. Given the game’s somewhat rocky start and time spent since release revamping the game, as well as the upcoming console versions, naturally, the whispers began to swirl. Was the removal of the six-month option an indicator that the game would go free to play or even become a buy to play game?Posted Jan 7, 2015 by Christina Gonzalez

A Look Back at 2014

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

Seriously, it’s the end of the year already? This year has flown by! It feels like it was just a couple of days ago I was helping to slay the werewolves of Camlorn and when it fact it was roughly 270 days ago. Time really flies when you’re enjoying every moment of it. Well almost every moment of it, waiting in the LFG queue is never an enjoyable experience. Within these 38 weeks since the game released, so much has changed and improved.Posted Dec 31, 2014 by Ryan Getchell

The Champion System Changes Everything, Leaves Questions

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

The Elder Scrolls Online team has been active with reveals in recent weeks, due to how much will be changing in update 6, which itself is just the beginning for subsequent phases of changes, additions, and overhauls. So it’s not surprising that the year closes out with (finally!) details about the Champion system. While no one will get a taste of the actual update until it hits the PTS after the new year, there’s already much feedback and discussion to tide us all over until January and beyond.Posted Dec 24, 2014 by Christina Gonzalez

Should the Faction Restriction in LFG Be Lifted?

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

The Elder Scrolls Online has had one major problem that has been a major focus ever since Patch 5.0, unimaginable Looking for Group (LFG) queue times. When update 5 was released, with it came scaling dungeons and daily dungeon pledges. These two new features had players wanting to do dungeons more often and of course that meant more players putting themselves into the LFG queue, only to be faced with endless queue times.Posted Dec 17, 2014 by Ryan Getchell

How the Justice System Will Change the Game

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

The world is about to get a whole lot more dangerous for those of you tempted by swiping shinies and causing mayhem in Tamriel. Zenimax revealed much about The Elder Scrolls Online's long-awaited Justice System, giving details not just on how it will work for players who decide to take things that don't belong to them, but also how the very game world will continue to see changes.

Update 6 Is Bigger Than We Thought!

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

Update 6 is a big one. Not only is it going to have the Provisioning Revamp, introduction to the collector system, and even the Champion System, but one addition to Update 6 is one that hasn’t received a lot of attention. One I think is a pretty awesome change. In Update 6, as long as everything goes according to plan, we’re going to be seeing some massive combat animation changes. Posted Dec 3, 2014 by Ryan Getchell

Provisioning Revamp: More Logical, Less Redundant

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

With Thanksgiving here in the US this week, it is probably a good time to talk about food. Namely, the long-awaited Provisioning overhaul that is set to arrive in update 6 of The Elder Scrolls Online. The changes to crafting in the game continue, but Provisioning will not just intend to increase immersion in the game world, but help players with management as well.

How to Make the PTS More Enticing

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

As much as this is an Elder Scrolls Online column, the topic I want to discuss branches itself across almost every MMO. It is something that no game has really figured out how to master. What I would like to discuss this week is Private Test Servers (PTS). Posted Nov 19, 2014 by Ryan Getchell

Time to Slow It Down, ZeniMax

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

Timing is everything. The last time in this space, I wrote about The Elder Scrolls Online rebounding from mistakes and negative first impressions moving forward. Since that was published, a major error happened with the latest round of patching, causing discrepancies between what was supposed to be included and what actually made it to the live server, as well as additional bugs, and, for a time, major login errors.

Patch 1.5.2: The Unexpected Change

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

Patch 1.5.2 went live on Monday and with it came some major improvements that we already knew about. But it also included a few changes that we did not expected. Were these unexpected changes good or bad?Posted Nov 5, 2014 by Ryan Getchell

How to Rebound

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

A recent column on this site argued that the critical reception for Destiny wasn’t relevant since the game’s sales were high. Yet, developers want to foster a reputation for quality as well. ZeniMax, too, suffered from mixed critical feedback before ESO was released, and in the weeks after launch. Yet ZeniMax embraced the feedback of its community, and now, with a big update set for the live server, is at six months and thriving out there. Posted Oct 29, 2014 by Christina Gonzalez

Crafting Writs - A Reason to Log In Every Day

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

One thing that has always bugged me about The Elder Scrolls Online was the lack of a need to login to do something. As much as it bugs me to admit this, World of Warcraft did it right with dailies. Dailies give an additional reason to login every day, and give another avenue for players to feel like they are progressing. At least they had that in WoW, no so much ESO. However patch 1.5 is trying to change that.Posted Oct 22, 2014 by Ryan Getchell

Let’s Talk About Werewolves

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

In The Elder Scrolls, werewolves are a part of the series lore, so in creating The Elder Scrolls Online, it was clear that players wanted the option to choose or to somehow encounter a little bit of lycanthropy in their journeys. Werewolves, along with vampires, offer a unique opportunity for a player to enjoy the benefits and be afflicted with the cons of this arrangement, which is not limited by race or class.

The Justice System Revealed

Elder Scrolls Online -  Preview

“By order of the Jarl, stop right there!” Even though I have not logged nearly as many hours as a lot of people, that phrase is one I know all too well. Anytime I’ve tried to be a sneaky thief, there was always a guard right near me ready to confiscate my stolen good. From what I saw at the Guild Summit, this phrase (or variations of it) will be playing a lot through my speakers as I play The Elder Scrolls Online. Posted Oct 9, 2014 by Ryan Getchell

The Champion System - An Entirely New Game Design

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

Taking a game that has been in development for seven years, and within seven months of release completely changing the “end game progression” would be a hard thing to do. The amount of pride that would need to be swallowed is unfathomable. But that is something Zenimax has, and is, doing. Posted Oct 8, 2014 by Ryan Getchell

What’s Up With the Console Versions?

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

When it comes to The Elder Scrolls Online, ZeniMax has published frequent roadmaps for where the game will go. Yet, after delaying the console edition in May for “approximately six more months of development”, the journey of ESO on consoles is still shrouded in mystery. Here are some reasons why patience will be key to the payoff should you want to run around Tamriel on your couch, and why waiting could be the best (or worst) decision for the game’s console future.Posted Oct 1, 2014 by Christina Gonzalez
