Until I've tried them both I'll have to take a wait and see attitude. I would lean more toward archeage even though I'm a huge elderscrolls fan.

As a long time TES fan I will say this. ArcheAge is more TES than TESO is TES. Just having the names of places and skins of TES does not make it TES. ive said it before and I will say it again, if TESO was TES, the names and places could be non-TES and I would be sayin...hey, this is a TES clone. Well, that cannot be said about TESO, because its DaoC...a game nothing like TES.

ArcheAge is open world sandpark, TESO is just another Themepark.

TESO. Because it seems like DAOC 2 set in the ES universe. If that's indeed what it turns out to be, I'll be quite happy with it.

 

However, it's too early for me to tell which will end up being the better game for me. I intend to try them both.

I chose AA.... but wanted to ask

 

Am I the only one a bit sad that an Asian Sandbox-ish game is generating more interest than TESO and mainly because AA is more of a sandbox?

 Perhaps you are, because im sure most of those that are sad are more sad over TES NOT being a sandbox like it should be than being sad that an Asian game that is, has a larger following here.

I plan on playing them both as soon as  these companies release them to the masses.

Which am I more excited about?  Archeage.

 

While not a 100% fit for what I'm looking for in an MMORPG, it's closer than TESO.

Daoc is entirely open world, there's absolutely no instances in the entire game.

Similarities between daoc and tes series
Player housing
Even more open world (towns and stuff don't have load screens)
Crafting is very important
Darkish fantasy setting
Can kill anyone (on ffa server)
Real archery with trajectories
Has quests but not hub style questing
Dungeons you just wander into, rather than make group and teleport there (daoc dungeons are not instanced)

Just getting annoyed with noobs that never played thinking daoc is like bloody wow or something.

I liked MMOs better when gamers didn't play them, and just geeks did.

It gets old, that's for sure. I so wish people would stop comparing Daoc to today's mmo's.

Thing is tes series isn't a sandbox.

Skyrim apart it has classes
It has levels
It has gated content
skyrim with hearthfire apart you can't build your own house
It has a ton of quests, many of which need to be done in a linear order (e.g to get to next stage in a guild story line)
It has a "you are the hero" setup

Tes is a hybrid / open workday themepark with sandbox elements

It has more in common with games like ac, daoc and EQ than it does games like eve & uo.

Sure its not like wow style themeparks either though.

 Thats funny because I just so happen to have a Skyrim mod that has a Pirate ship and adds pirate clothing...but I do thank you for looking for "pirate ships" as a way to say TESO is closer to TES than AA...seeing as how there is no information about pirates or ships being in TESO yet.

Doh!

Can any 1 of the 3 sides enter the other factions lands and adventure? NO. They are closed and zoned off.

Not an OPEN world.

I am not going to even try to explain if further. You will never get it.

Tried: EQ2 - AC - EU - HZ - TR - MxO - TTO - WURM - SL - VG:SoH - PotBS - PS - AoC - WAR - DDO - SWTOR
Played: UO - EQ1 - AO - DAoC - NC - CoH/CoV - SWG - WoW - EVE - AA - LotRO - DFO - STO - FE - MO - RIFT
Playing: Skyrim
Following: The Repopulation

Sure its not like wow style themeparks either though.

 1. Skyrim does not have classes, it has skills you can level and you can do them all.

2. Levels raised by using SKILLS, you dont get XP for quests, or kills.

3. TES games do NOT have gated content. Its 100% open outside the main story.

4. Housing has nothing to do with sandbox, there are themepark games with housing.

5. A game can be a sandbox and still have a storyline as long as doing that story is not level based. which it isnt.

6. Not sandbox based.

Thank you, please try again with at least one example that fits what you are saying.

My vote goes to ArchAge. While the combat is garbage the rest is simply what i want from an MMO. Conflict driven gameplay about ressources and TON's of possibilities to shape the world.
