Agreed!

This doesn't seem even remotely an Elder Scrolls based game - it's just using the name to create interest and is focusing all the attention on RvR.

Skyrim had 200+ dungeons.

TESO will probably have like 10.

Skyrim had a main plot line + a half dozen or more fully fleshed out storylines.

TESO will probably have the 3 - one for each faction, and a bunch of pointless side quests.

Skyrim and all other major TES RPGs have been 1st person FPS RPG combat.

TESO is going to be 99% 3rd person over the shoulder hotbar combat.

Skyrim had open skill based progression and no racial restrictions.

TESO is pseudo-class based and race/faction locked.

 

The biggest one-

Elder Scrolls has always been single player RPG and players have long, long hoped for co-op functionality.

TESO is apparently primarily based on PvP - not even primarily based on co-op multiplayer.

Identity crisis is right!

But you see, no one is screwing up an iconic franchise.

It is only a few, loud, deluded individuals who believe only they know the correct way to pay homage to TES in an MMO... and they can't even agree amongst themselves on the true way to do it.

So you know the opinions of the silent majority?

Lol...there's nothing silent about you guys with your self-righteous indignation. I'm in the minority apparently...at least as far as I can tell from the contents of this forum.

So you think you're any different than us?  You say that if we don't like the game, don't play it - if you don't like what we have to say then don't read it... it's as simple as that.

No it's not that simple. I feel a compulsion to counteract bullshit and self-righteousness wherever I see it. I know, it's a personal failing. I'm like Don Quijote that way I guess.

How is it that anyone who thinks ESO will be a shallow, linear, Themepark POS spouting "self-rightious BS", but those that think its ok to turn ES into DAOC2 are not spouting the same, but opposing self-rightious BS?

Keep tilting at those windmills.

BTW, the name was Don Quixote

Actually no, the name is Don Quijote in the original Spanish. the "X" is in the anglisized spelling...  I'm hispanic so I write it the real way.

99% of those dungeons are terrible though. They're as linear as a CoD level.

BadSpock, you of all people know the pitfall of making arguments based on assumptions. You argued against many a user in the GW2 and SWTOR forums who did the exact thing you did above.

Come on, it's obvious that the game will be different from it's single player counterpart. That's a given. But we don't need to invent assumptive nonesense to try to make points.

I hope he is wishing it your way cause you won't stfu about race locking which was done only to be able to make pvp and each side different so there is a reason to actually make an alt. You try to sound smart but you sound a like an ass..please stop already. If you want co-op single play skyrim make a mod it's easy to do and you get the game you want.

Race locking was done ONLY to copy DAoC.  What makes you think that everyone cares about making alts?

Its kind of sad really. We have 2 games in development,

One is an Elder Scrolls game that fans are happy with it being made as a DAOC2

The other is the actual DAOC2, but you see fans clamoring for it to be made like Skyrim.

 

ZOMG That is funny!  Great observation.

LOL, I agree.  I'm not sure what they are going to do but I would say that these are good predictions.

I know it's not you starting the threads, didn't mean to imply that. Just reiterating the question.

People don't, in fact, have every right to voice what they want, though. They have permission within the bounds of this site's rules, enforced by moderators, to discusss certain topics. Duplicated topics are typically deleted or moved or combined. This topic has been discussed to death.

Very true, though I think it is ironic that I and others have to ASSUME about the PVE in TESO so much because all they are freaking advertising is the RvR...

I am one of them that still longs for a singleplayer co-op TES game, because that actually can come close to the FEEL of the singleplayer series without the hassle of thousands of players wanting to do the same things. So hopefully next Elders Scrolls singleplayer series might have co-op options.

TESO not a singleplayer co-op game but seems to be set in the MMORPG genre....right?

I do however hope that exploring will also be or become a major part of the game cause in that aspect MMO's should go far beyond the sizes of worlds found in singleplayer game if only due to the amount of players around.

But please anyone explain how a MMORPG could be made where your action actually effects the full ingameworld pve-wise, making unique or rare quests?, just doesn't work well for a MMO long term, cause rare or unique is found almost right away thanks to our internet. And while you or I might not be those who look up things, there are plenty around who will.

I'm not even into PVP, atleast not with MMO's, but a TES game that brings me something differents then what I already love got my attention.

Oh yes MMO dungeon and SP game dungeon are same thing. If they want to make 200+ dungeons of three types (and pretty short) i would be disapoited. Id rather take 10good and diverse ones.

Skyrim had a main plot line + a half dozen or more fully fleshed out storylines.

TESO will probably have the 3 - one for each faction, and a bunch of pointless side quests.

There will be character storyline, faction storyline and many sidequests. (well maybe there will be fighters guild and mages guild storyline)

Skyrim and all other major TES RPGs have been 1st person FPS RPG combat.

TESO is going to be 99% 3rd person over the shoulder hotbar combat.

I played skyrim 99% in 3rd person mode ... plus 3rd person in MMOs is norm. No MMO player wants lame box over their head.

Skyrim had open skill based progression and no racial restrictions.

TESO is pseudo-class based and race/faction locked.

This is only think i can relate to ... as UO and EvE player ... i don't like Xp systems.

 

The biggest one-

PvP id ultimate form of Co-Op ... you have to cooperate to kill other players. Plus you can't make MMO based only on PvE it would fail hard.

Identity crisis is right!

NOPE!

I see one flaw in your logic ...

Skyrim was SP game

TESO is MMORPG

Exactly everyone who wanted a Co-OP TES game assumed TESO would be that. The didn't read the part where TESO is a MMORPG.

Co-Op games and MMO's are not the same...

I want a TESO MMO, not a co-op TES game. Like I said, I support Zenimax. They have the right ideas so far.

Considering how deeply flawed OP is(TESO is in no way to be meant as TES successor), mz post seems to be very relevant...

This game is not Elder Scrolls Online, it is some weird WoW/DAoC mix with Elder Scrolls skin.

It is Elder Scrolls Online. It is not a co-op TES.

Diablo was not called Diablo Online... it was just Diablo, a co-op game. 

Edit: However if Blizzard ever turned Diablo into a MMO, they could then call it Diablo Online... instead of Diablo IV
