OP  1/30/13 4:01:50 AM#1

i for one am leening to yes, now not lost 100% , i will give the game a shot but right off the bat 75% intrest is lost due to this flaw....i do not see a intrest in a game where i cannot explore the world and am limited to a set area, in wich is brutally unrealistic. They have taken a HUGE aspect of what a MMO is by removing world exploration...for a company that said this game is focused on exploration this is the wrong direction. I would like to write my story the way i want it to be written, not locked to one place like "John lived in Daggerfall and never seen the outter world cuz it wasnt allowed..." cuz that sounds like a epic story alright....

ArcheAge cant get here fast enough....hope ESO dosnt kill off the Elder Scrolls series like how blizzard did to the Warcraft series because of WoW suscess...

 

P.S No im no ta noob ganker wolrd PvP lover...i just liked how WoW did it but dont liek WoW...so dont tell me to go back to WoW cuz it sucks now...

 

 

this guy explains my view exactly...watch it and see where us kind of ppl come from:

This guy offers a good suggestion on what could have been done to address this issue at 2:40 in his video:

I have not lost interest - but it is a decided 'drag factor' on my enthusiasm.

I want to wander the deserts of Al'Akir or stand on High Rock with my DUNMER.

Not possible at the moment...

Even if you can't go to the other factions zones, it just adds more reply value to alts so I see it as a great thing. I can see where you're coming from though ES has always been about exploration and I guess the more I think about it that's straying from the original games a lot. I guess we'll know for sure when we get more info but I will say not many companies are Bethesda. So I would seriously try to get them to stay as true as possible to the original series.

 

Edit: If I can't go from Morrowind to Red Rock what's the point I mean really?

If it's more than the earliest starter-zones that will be locked- yes, I will definatelly think about if I want to invest in this game.

I think there are better ways to protect low-level players than this.

Definitely, to be honest, trying to mix TES and DAoC isnt really a good fit, having factions in the game should not be racially based in the first place imo, in TES factions to me means being a member of the mages guild or the fighters guild etc. But i don't really see anything of TES in  ESO beyond a few naming conventions. As a long time fan of TES, ESO is not a game i have any interest in anymore.

They would have been better off having everyone with a neutral faction status to start off, with the various 'city states' having their own factions, with gains in one affecting standing with other city states etc.. that way they could have a fully explorable pve game with pvp between different city states for those who wanted it. Not to mention having an assassins and thieves guild in the game for those with larcenous etc, leanings.. putting a death mark on another player for a 'bounty' so to speak would be .. a bit more fun

You do have 3 different races in one area thou... So its not a racial thing.

Don't give a fuck.

Gameplay elements are far more important in MMORPG than some stupid RACE/GENDER/FACTION locks.

its the very definition of racially based factions, it is in fact, the one that was used in DAoC.. just with different names.

Precisely. So what to do about it... Well you can always make your own game. Or wait till Beta and judge after you've seen it.

Same here. I'm still interested, bu that design decision is a minus in my book.

To me, this kind of stuff is actually more important than combat itself. To me MMORPGs are more about world exploration and interaction than anything else.

I'm pretty sure you will be able to explore. Why are everyone rushing to call this a failure?

At first there were games, then MMOs, then MMORPGs then I understood I had no life :-)

I am sorry i just don't get you guys - i have no power to explain myself to you all cause you already made up your minds.

I will just say that i am happy to see a twist and not more of the same....

 

Well - i am an alt person after all - i have to have many many many chars - each completely different and so i do think this game is my cup of tea....

Just my 2 cents...

I don't mind not having the entire map to roam for pve, if anything I'd rather have it that way.  DAoC was the best gaming experience I've ever had and part of the draw was seeing enemies as real invaders from unknown lands.  A lot of the mystery would be lost if enemies could freely mingle outside of the open world pvp areas.

EXACTLY! i most of the time only have 1 char! In wich i grow his story by the day...maybe its just me but if im paying for a game to would like to see it all with 1 guy as it was ment to be...i mean seriously...if you wanted to go to europ but coudnt cuz the rules n laws woudnt let you wounld u not be pissed? OR

if u live in arazona and wanted to go to texas but you cant cuz the rules and laws say no...how would that feel?

 

im just goin g off of what i have come to believe a MMO shud be about. Create a place to get away from it all...a new life as to speak. A life where nothing can stop me from doing certain things where in my real life it would limit me to...thought that is what games were about...not shackling you to a set rules...

 

Maybe im just a sanboxer...

No

If they had find the typical wow clone route with their pvp - shite little instanced minigames, with token flip a switch and pvp magically happens servers.

I would have then.
