With what we know so far, when will you buy this game?

When are you going to buy ESO?

I'm getting the collector's edition!
I'm gonna preorder the standard edition.
I may buy it but waiting for more information.
I probably won't buy it but waiting for more information.
I'll wait until after release to see what people say.
I'll wait for it to go free2play.

I'll wait until I get to play it (beta or stress test) before deciding on buying it.

Yeah I was gonna work in "until I play the beta" option in the poll but I was hoping "waiting for more infomation" would cover it.

Waiting for more info.

Either from being in beta or trustworthy reviews.

There is to much that sounds off for me to blindly throw my cash at ESO (and to many other games I can play)

"After release, depending on what people say." ... is the best I can do.

 

If it's a typical box plus sub, with population crash 6 months out, then probably not at all.

Not sure really.

I'm still interested and I will keep following the game but if it turns out to be a game with heavy restrictions on exploring the world and more of a daoc with ESO skin then most likely no.

(I kind of like the idea with 3 factions though but not like the way it is)

Same as ^ pretty much. I am done with buying mmo's without playing them before.bought too many which ended up just being boring as shit wow wannabe's. Seen a alpha review eso looks promising but I am betting they will mess it up. Biggest screw up so far is having voice acting for everything, and having races locked to certan factions. The races locked to certan faction thing so far is my main reason to stay away from ESO, because I find that aspect of the game stupid. No one likes to play the ugly races usually, so the faction that has most of those will end up probally being pretty empty.

Be better if it was like skyrim, where the races in the factions are the main races, but in the storyline they could make you do a few extra quests/missions before you can joiun that faction as any other race, sort of to prove your loyal. I really wonder what was going thru their mind when they decided to force certan races into certan factions.

Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:

A. Proven right (if something bad happens)

or

B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)

Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!

What mmo released recently didn't have a mass exodus about 2 months in? I can't count any besides wow. afaik. so will be no exception, mmorpgs just don't have the gripping power they used to.

I kind of like the 3 faction system also but I think we should've started off as neutral and then choose which faction we wanted to join (like in other TES games).

Waiting until release and trustworthy reviews have been released. Then wait some more until the most annoying bugs are fixed. Then wait even more until there is a free tiral and give it a go (or use a friends account to try it out).

I am not worried to be behind the curve, in fact, i love it. You start with all the knowledge people have gathered so far, making a ton of money right from the start with leveling and farming tipps while not having to deal with early game breaking bugs and economic crashes.

 

PS: Good to see that the people that preorder and people that wait until release seems to be split equally. We need more people to wait though, do not give money to companies on promises. Give them money for delivering!

You need another choice in your poll.  

 

(0)  I will purchase the standard edition the day it is released.  

 

That is my choice.

 I went with wait until more information is released.  The only CE I ever felt was worth it in the end was the one from Rift since it was just a few bucks more (digital version).

Definitely not going to preorder as it has not yet convinced me that the game is innovative in any way.

I'll keep checking this out periodically. I'm generally against pre-ordering games or buying them on launch day, because IMO it's smarter to wait for reviews instead of trusting some marketing guys. Not that I have anything against marketing guys, but not telling the whole truth is a part of their job description.

Waiting to try it in beta + get details on payment model + find out whether its RvR will be a flop like WvW.

I learned some things about MMOs:

NEVER preorder

NEVER buy on launch

MMOs at launch are mostly a PITA. I prefer MMOs which had a couple of years to mature and grow. I refuse to be an unpaid beta test guinea pig and sitting in the "need more content" waiting queue for months, experiencing MMO growing pains.

Just gonna get the standard edition and if it turns out to be shit it'll just be a minor loss, some people act as if it is an investment.
