Why does this game seem to be under the radar on this web site?

On tentonhammer.com,. it got voted the most anticipated game for 2013. ive not seen any info  on MMORPG's home page yet.  Maybe i missed it ..  From what ive seen , it looks promising.  Least till Arche Age comes out.

I think it is pop with a lot of people.

Personally though,I feel it is just another 'SWTOR / TSW single player fully instanced / phased mmo' with blocking and dodge mechanics. The combat was the only thing that had peaked my interest but I haven't read anything about crafting, and I have been told that  player homes / guild halls will be a no go in this game. The more that I see about it the less interested I am in, but I would love to be blindsided with an amazing MMO of my dreams, this is just looking less and less like it will be that for me.

This type of thinking needs to stop. Everyday people post laundry lists of what they wish they could have in a game. There will never be an MMO of your dreams, and if there is a partial one, it WILL eventually evolve into something you don't like. Whether that happens due to a patch, expansion, or simple burn out - you can't have your dream game while other people are involved.

I don't mean this as a personal attack mrburns, but this is a typical sentiment that it all too common. And it's an unhealthy expectation for people to hold. When assessing a game, you should only ask if it's fun and if you got your money's worth from it. Everything beyond that is bonus.

This type of nonsense needs to stop. Telling someone how to think is absurd. Besides dreaming is part of life and I have many dreams some of which involve my leisure activities. Stating I would love to be blindsided by an amazing MMO of my dreams is a generality. I have no expectations of a mmo being of my dreams that is what the term blindsided means.

Just to point out I am playing a few mmos I enjoy. Currently playing one that is damn close to my dream mmo and it is still in beta.

"When assessing a game, you should only ask if it's fun and if you got your money's worth from it. Everything beyond that is bonus."

In the same sentence you quoted me:

"The more that I see about it the less interested I am in," -meaning TESO is looking like i wouldnt give it a dime.

@OP

I wouldn't say it is "under  the radar". Check the News articles, there have been at least 3 news articles during the last weeks.

But you are right, the hype for TESO is not very high on this page. Personally I am in the same boat. I really don't see much about TESO which would get me hyped.

I don't agree with you!

 

If you read these forums, most people do want the same thing, but it doesn't seem to exist - a sandbox MMORPG with a themepark thrown in.

Throw in virtual reality capability, and people's expectations will be surpassed.

because its categorized as a theme park, those types of games get no love here.

I think even people excited for this meh game hopes it's an end of a completely useless cycle.

Taking the 2003 era theme park model and forcing it on an IP just can't be exciting any longer. Plus Elder Scrolls fans like me (there's a few out there like me) are completely disgusted with the pigeon holed cookie cutter game they're hoping to cash in on.

Any Elder Scrolls game that lacks the ability to customize a class, free roam, join any faction isn't an Elder Scrolls game.

MMORPG.com is the MMO hipster hangout.

 

ewww it doesn't have open world PVP ewww

ewww it doesn't have full loot ewww

ewww it has instances ewww

ewww its not a sandbox ewww

id rather wait for "the Repopulation" or insert some other obscure indie title thats made by 4 guys in their parents basement.

agreed. I mean I really am not a fan of the Elder Scrolls, since im not  really into such open world, free form, single player games, but I'm glad it exists for those who want it. I get lost and because of that get bored. but that doesn't mean I would want them to change that to fit ME. I have games that give me the fix I want. Elder Scrolls Online seems to be trying to fill an already filled niche. 

 

the name doesn't mean anything to me, so what does it have to offer to me other than the name? as far as I've read/seen, nothing.

and Don't get me wrong, I love theme parks; I play GW2 and Aion, and I don't see how ESO is going to replace those.  

I play MMOs for the Forum PVP

MMORPG is not generally the place to get a feeling for how popular is going to be until it gets a little closer to release than ESO is now. Most people who enjoy games avoid the forums, etc. here because of all of the negativity and elitism, so that only leaves the people who are generally disatisfied with MMO games.

Those people (i.e. disatisfied or jaded players) may or may not have valid reasons for the way they feel, but they don't represent the majority view on MMOs. You only have to look at the incredible amount of money that the genre pulls in every year to see how different the demographic is here.

The indie games that recieve the bulk of the praise here (what little praise there is) do not generally set the woods on fire financially. (Note: I personally love some indie games, but I am not a hipster about it.)

The only time this really changes is when a AAA title is close to release and its fans finally bother to come here and hype it up.

TL:DR Complainers are always loudest.

Really ? they have had heaps of stuff on the home page, a little while ago they did a hands on game play article.

 

I think TSEO is trying to avoid the over-Hype that SWTOR and GW2 got caught up with. Having Millions of people coming into your game on day one, and finding out the game is not what they expected, because the game was so media hyped to be something it was never intended to be is not a good thing.

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

The staff here do a weekly article about it which is pretty awesome.

 

I personally don't think its under the radar because there are alot of hate coming about some aspects of the game.  Other then Neverwinter, this is the only other game I am following and will be there on day 1.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

Because we have no where near enough information on it. We have no gameplay footage. There are also a lot of concerns about the handling of the IP in an MMO. 

 

Many questions and no concrete answers in sight. 

 

Until more information and footage is out the game will pretty much remain under the radar. Many are keeping an eye or ear out for news, but not many are gearing up and getting hyped or grabbing their pitch forks yet.

It might have a chance to be good if it stays under the radar.

If this is a game you are following and highly anticipate, then you want it to fly under the radar (on mmorpg.com).

You want only those who are genuinely interested in the game to post here.  It makes for really good conversations, information sharing and general news.   Back in 2010 - 2011, the GW2 forum on here was really, really good. 

Well, we all know what happened there.
