At least you have the right to bitch about the game if it sucks on their forum and not cyber trolls sharing their personal experience with any game.

Good one Steam.

It is indeed awesome in a way.  Though if they are going to do that with one game then they should do it for all of them.  Picking one major title to restrict forums is probably going to make all their possible new buyers from Steam a little suspicious as to why.  There were more games in Steam's past that could have used this restriction.  In fact, Rage, which was also a id>Bethesda>Zenimax game could have used it more due the amount of hate it got.

There's so much hate because they exist. If it were a different mmo, they would hate on that. That's every game in the mmo industry.

Have never seen that on Steam before. lol, not even X-Rebirth did that...

What's the issue. They don't want you creating hate posts. Move on.

there is a fine line between a hate post and a post just explaining why someone didnt buy the game.

Could it be that is why we have decided free speech is a good thing?

Nobody wants to hear you whine about the game on an official forum.

It's a daft idea, many of us own ESO from when the the game launched or shortly after, so that screws over a good deal of people who can say how the game was and how it has changed. Now they will just get haters who got the game from Steam and got upset they didn't get skyrim online or they waited before playing and lost some of their 30 days.

Other games get haters but it allows vets and new players to then reply and help or explain .. Locking a forum to steam owners only is a great way to start people looking elsewhere for deals.

I am not sure who pissed in their cheerios, or kicked their puppy but man nothing in life is worth hating that much...

I think the core question here is why are so many people hyper pissed instead of just indiferent.

any theories?

Probably some kind of psychopathology.

but why this game more so then others is the question.

 

Are you suggesting that ESO got more hate then, AOC? or SWTOR? or any of the WoW expansions?, or FFIXV before it was gutted and started again?

These things always happen in cycles of disapointment.

This looks like a job for....The Riviera Kid!

They used one of the most famous IP to have the maximum reach and a lot of the marketing/sales done for them from the get go.

Using this IP created an immense amount of expectations from players, because it is one of the best IP (if not the best) for fantasy RPG.

People didn't find the ESO game to be similar to or anywhere near as good as the previous games based on the same IP.

 

It backfired because the game didn't deliver a good enough experience. I will save my tears for real sad stuff, not for a "business failure".

 

They should keep blocking forums, deleting negative posts, and pretend people who don't find the game to their liking should have understood this was an Elder Scrolls game but without the Elder Scrolls part.

 

This game is literally the Jaden Smith of gaming. An untalented child using the name of his father to be popular.

The problem is the games varied from each other, so there was no way they could make an ESO game that didn't get the hate it did.

Skyrim had the most publicity and so i guess to many where expecting Skyrim Online, loads of us have played the earlier games, have them on Steam etc and would have liked something more along those lines.

The skill system of Morrowind, the bias you got depending on Race/Class etc .. I miss that in games, it's all to PC now, don't want to seem nasty against other races.

I say F, err screw that, let racial/class bias back into games.

I still like ESO and got a time code from Kinguin for 2 months £15 not to bad, so i'll give it another shot.

I have no idea why this game is being bullied this hard. It's not a bad game, not at all, it just isn't the Skyrim Online so many were thinking it was. It's a good MMO and a good ES game and, as an ES fan, I love it. I love being able to go to so many places, interact with other fans, roleplay and have fun. I am very happy they are adding sandboxy features like the justice system. Makes me wonder if they will add more fun systems like that.

But back to topic, I really do not understand the major hate... It's everywhere! Even if someone speaks up for ESO, they will get drowned in a million dislikes and troll comments and probably wont post again, because... who wants to deal with that crap just because they enjoy a game?

I'm going to say they are ES fans who think ESO does the ES name absolutely no justice, and well quiet frankly they are right.

ESO sucks.

 

It was hyped like no other games ever have been before.  Now it's tanking harder than Warhammer Online did (or in a similar fashion, just a guess anyways).  At least Warhammer Online had somewhat fun end game dungeons and PvP grind.  ESO has literally, no fun end game, you either grind your heart out on boring generic quests, or group grind mobs for endless hours up to max level, then you have basically, nothing to do other than PvP in a pointless 'campaign' where anyone can switch if they are losing, so it ends up 1 faction holding everything and the other factions in other campaigns.

And if you pretend the contrary, you might be in the minority of PvP players that thrives being the underdog on a faction dominated campaign, graciously delivering bodies to the meatgrind called 'zerg', but really other than self pride it serves no point, there's no greater goal, you won't be able to slow down the ennemy progression as there's no progression at all, only winners when campaigns reset (as your factions probably also owns an empty land, you're a winner too).  Everyone's a winner.  Hooray.

And I mad 'cause I regret spending close to 100$ on a piece of turd, and grinding my eyes out on VR questing before Craglorn was released.  And Vampire's bat swarm OPness, and class imbalances, and etc, etc, etc.  So many flaws, so many gamebreaking designs (like this game is SOLO all the way but why the eff is it a MMO).  Pass on it, save your money, protest with your wallet.

The cost of the very first mount.

WOW, 5g

Wildstar, 10g

LOTRO, 500 silver

ESO, 17,200g

OR you can upgrade to the Imperial Edition ($$$) to get a free horse. 

 

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm,

So wait til level 40 and you still wouldn't have had enough gold in WoW (vanilla), OR wait 2 (yes two) zones and have enough for a mount with change to spare???

Oh wait, I see it now... WoW mounts 5g, the "Waaaah! This game is to hard" prices.

So it's easy mode mounts your wanting???

As for the amount of RL cash involved, more fools blow that amount weekly on SWTOR's cash drive... opps! Shop!

I'm so glad it has a sub, it keeps the brats away AND the hate club, TBH were better off without both imo! :D

No trials. No tricks. No traps. No EU-RP server. NO THANKS!

I think the first mount in WOW cost more like 100g lol. THis guy who listed the gold prices for mounts has no idea what he's talking about. At level 40 in WoW I still didn't have the 100g required and I think I needed to grind until mid 40s to get that much. And then as my first char was a warlock, I had to do a very long chain to get my mouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuunttttt. HOnestly it was hard.

from the very moment ESO was announced people have trolled this game with supposed "hate".

i do not blame steam one bit, heck blizzard has been doing this for years not allowing you to post on their official forums unless you are subbed.

so whats the problem? oh, it's ESO, i forgot.....by all means continue with your troll crusade.

yeah, in vanilla wow it was not easy to get your first mount for 100g at level 40. when you seen a level 60 with a fast mount that they paid 1000g for, it was awe inspiring lol

i remember i farmed for a loooong time to get my mounts in vanilla wow, i would say that it's easier to get mounts in ESO than it was in vanilla wow.

Yeah, the 1k for the level 60 mount was insane. But what took even longer were the TBC mount training. Can't remember what regular flying costed but it was maybe like 1k. But that was slow as hell. Grinding 5k for the epic flying toook even more than the level 60 month. I was farming primals for ages but man did it make a difference to fly at 280% :D
