How will you ever KNOW if you don't take it for a test drive?  Heck, TOR was like a hot date until you got to 50...

These developers need our financial support.  Without it, it will be more of the same PTW cash shop business models instead of subscription games.

here is how.

 

If a car dealership tells you, we have these great 4 wheel drive trucks with super cab, they have extra large tires with snow tred on them and a tow package come down and check it out!

If you like motorcycles why would you spend your free time driving down there just to make sure they are actually selling what they say they are selling and not motorcycles?

If ES is an IP that he loves, he should support the devs.  I'm not asking someone who hates the I.P. to support it, that makes no sense.  All I am asking is for that motorcycle guy that loves honda motorcycles is to support his honda motorcycle dealership.  Without support, honda will eventually go out of business and with it goes the brand he loves when all that was needed is financial support to keep honda around. 

Fear not fanbois, we are not trolls, let's take off your tin foil hat and learn what VAPORWARE is:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vaporware

"Vaporware is a term used to describe a software or hardware product that is announced by a developer well in advance of release, but which then fails to emerge after having well exceeded the period of development time that was initially claimed or would normally be expected for the development cycle of a similar product."

disagree completely.

If you like BMW because of its cars and they made the annoucement that they are now also selling motorcycles but you dont like motorcycles at all there really isnt any reason to go buy a motorcycle from them just to support them.

I should also add I wouldnt want BMW to get the idea that I perfer motorcycles and then by supporting the motorcycles end up with less cars.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results.

Well the funny thing about your annalogy. BMW makes moter cycles,  not that I want one I prefer Suzuki the reason is they build a better bike for a cheaper price. I do kind of agree however just becasue my favorite car maker makes a great vehicle, they might not make a great bike.  So I drive a Dodge Ram, and a Suziki 650, have an EZGO golf cart.  You pick what works best, you just don't buy everything from the same company becasue they make everything under the sun.

oh god please no, I can't swallow another TOR experience, that game traumatized me.

 

Seriously, there is no freakin' way that TESO can be THAT bad. This is almost impossible.

I would suggest you stay far away from the game then.  IF you didnt like TOR.  I liked TOR personally and cant wait for TESO.  I have no illusions that it will be F2P eventually..maybe Ill wait till then..save the $60  :)

I learned years ago you do not preorder any mmorpg. Now I wait four to six months after release to see if it is going to be a viable game or if the devs just shit in a box and called it a mmorpg.

What I can't understand is why in the world would anyone pre-order a game without knowing what the sys reqs are??? Are we suppose to base it on the sys reqs for Skyrim? By now TES must surely know what the reqs are for the game to run smoothy will be...

Not pre-ordering or even buying, it has been verified that it's a themepark. Really sad for the direction TESO has taken, was hoping for a completely different gameplay approach.

Buying a game because of an IP from people that butcher the IP and disregard the gameplay that made that gaming IP popular is rewarding a company for doing the wrong thing and only encourages more of the same in the future.

Gamestop says the official release date is the last day of this year, lol. Who would pre-order something 12 months in advance when all the details arent even known? Also I didnt see anything about payment method as far as sub VS b2p. Plus BMW has made motorcycles for decades and Suzuki recently announced they wont be selling to America anymore or are going out of business, atleast thats what I read.
