OP  1/24/13 2:46:22 PM#1

PvP siege battle which looks like hundreds or even thousands of soldiers facing off against each other. Is a battle of this magnitude actually possible in the game, made up of human players?

Every one of the figures in that video was a human player. We got all of our devs into the game for a PvP test, and then captured that sequence with them. It was all in-game. Cyrodiil (the PvP map) is open-world and supports up to 2000 players in it at the same time. ESO’s client is designed to be able to handle (on the recommended spec) 200 players on screen at the same time. That particular scene had about 115 players on each side.

To get to any meaningful PVP, doesn't everyone need to suffer through all the funneled themepark PVE content first, then get to endgame and do PVP "in the middle", since every faction is segregated?

They have stated you can start pvp at lvl 10 and be perfectly fine.

Sounds good, ty for the link, hadn't seen it yet. That's been one of my concerns, I was hoping they didn't go the way GW2 did and make it so that only a few hundred people could enjoy huge pvp battles. Glad they won't be going that way. GW2 pvp is a joke.

WEWT!

...

Wait....what?

 

Color me confused, how can it support 2k players, yet a person can only see 200 at one time.

if it support 200 on screen, and are 3 factions, then itll be 60-70 person per side?

Where does the other 1800 players...play?

The Deep Web is sca-ry.

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

Where is this funneled PvE content you speak of?  If Funnled PvE content equals freedom to explore anywhere and go where ever you want is funneled....then yes PvE is funneled.

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!

God damnit BC, where the hell do you get off on this?  Why isn't it open?  Why do you think it's marketing talk?  FFS can't you jsut leave these forums, and go back to the Wushu forums?  Why must you consistently continue to churn out negativity for anything that doesnt feature FFA PvP.  FFS, your version of PvP is niche and hardly anyone likes it.  The vast majority of players are PvE anjd if they do like PvP it's consentual.  My heart tells me that a high percentage of ESO's playerbase will never participate in PvP.....me being one of them.

I agree with BC, it actually sounds like its going to be a GW2-esque type of system. ESO's version of WvWvW.

 How could you not want to be in a massive battle with that many people.

I don't even think AoW has 2000 people playing it lol.

 You can't even have 60 people on the screen in GW2, well I guess you could but you would  never see them.

I hope it's very much like DAOC RvR areas were. If they do just that, I'll be happy. If it's like GW2, then I'll pass.

Whoa whoa. I'm a support here. I can't wait to check it out. I had to be like the 1st 10 people to sign up for the beta. The anologish sword swining, ability to wear any type of armor, 3 true factions. I want to play.

 

Let's be real here though, the Open world pvp he is speaking of is no different that WvW, Illum, Fusang. You can't have Open world pvp, but no pvp in these areas. I'm not gonna be sold that, again...

 

I don't have to swallow hook line and sinker in order to want to play.

Don't mind that guy he has been in every TESO thread ripping the game left right and center.  His claims are false.  Us that have actually follow the game know better.

Im not saying I don't want to see their version of "open world" pvp. I'm just saying I have heard developers claim this and that about how great the pvp is thier games...I have learned to simply ignore that crap till I see it first hand. Im not a big Elder scrolls person, but I will most likely try this game...if the game is fun to play ill play it. If there can only be 20 ppl pvping at once thats fine with me...as long as its fun...but don't make claims you can't backup.
