Not pre-ordering. I refuse to fall into the hype just to get disappointed again. If I buy it will be after launch but no promises whatsoever.

 I will definatley pre-order. I will support Elder Scrolls even if it looks like trash. I have over 800 hrs in skyrim and tons of fun modding  for the cost of a single game and some dlc. I'de say I got my $$'s worth and owe them my support.

Its looking like a lot of folks around here won't be playing it... Which gives me even more of a reason to try it out lol. Seriously though, I do plan on checking it out. Parts looks very cool and worth the initial fee. Sub fees don't really matter to me. I wasted money on gw2 as I ended up hating it, so if I end up liking this game, it will be worth the sub. I habe concerns about a lot of games i buy, but thats thr risk with gaming. Either that, or wait until a free trial emerges.

This is a small majority of MMO/Elder Scrolls fans. Who cares if 7 people on this sub-forum say they wont buy it.

 

Personally, I dont have game biasedness. I am going to try Everquest Next and this game if both release this year as both companies have said they intend to. I have every next gen console and a top end gaming computer.. I play games that I want to and dont limit it to biasedness and such. I played Everquest AND WoW. I was one of those guys! The "killer" to Everquest.

thats the point. why risk again? we all like elder scrolls games. we all like to be a top notch mmo, but why not holding 1 or 2 months? why not try something before buy it? is that bad? as for the sub, if it deserves it then ok, but if its like all the others then no sir. i preffer waiting a bit this time and every time from now on :)

Oh come on now, the cost of pre-ordering is no bigger than a night spent out at the club.  If you can't afford it just don't go out once or twice when it becomes available. 

Sorry the thought of all those posts where people bash others for not wanting to pay a sub came to mind for some reason.

Personally, I won't pre-order it.  I haven't pre-ordered a game since.....ever.

I will be pre-ordering for a few reasons.

1. TES lore/story. Best RPG games I have played. 

2 DAoC 3 faction PvP. Been waiting for a MMO to take that on sinse they stopped updating DAoC in 2003.

3 Crafting that has depth and not only makes BEST in slot items but also takes the best raid gear in the game and crafters can make it better,

4 PvP will be about skill not gear. No PvP gear, gear is just gear. When I win a fight I want to know it was my skill.

5 Already the elder game is a focus, turning 2/3 of the world into elder game content

6 Bringing back open world dungeons, this is a feature we gamers have been asking for forever.

7 Freedom in class, sick of cookie cutter classes that have no real freedom.

So much win IMO.

So you buy the game for 40-60 bucks and if you are a TES fan it gives you 1-2 months of enjoying the lore and story. If you are not a TES fan then you get to try out a new tripple A MMO (yes they have spent a lot on this game and its been in dev for 6 years) and again you get 1-2 months of gaming to find out. If you like it then you are ahead of the game. If you didnt, whats 40-60 bucks? Few hours of work? Whats the big deal?

Not until it is released and i see which of all those promised features and marketing hype actually made it into the final game. Why would i pay for something now that is not finished, just to find out later that it is not what was promised in the first place?

The big fracking deal is that companies will continue to produce shit as long as we give them money in advance for their shit. Come on man, you can not be that thick to not understand that this behaviour has gotten us to where we are today! 

They are selling you dreams and their new business model is to recover all development cost with box sales, pre-orders, founders editions, lifetime subscriptions. They will do anything to make you give them your money before you actually know what you get.

Hopefully they will have an open beta weekend nearer the time of release, so I can get a taste for the game.  If I enjoy it I will preorder.  I don't have high expectations for MMO's anymore, I treat them as I would a single player game.  If I can get a good few weeks of entertainment out of them, I'll consider it money well spent.

yes now that the hype machine is at maximum power the game "sounds" pretty bad ass......then again so did GW2 when they were hyping the crap out of that one, and so did SWTOR, and War, etc etc...

to me it still sounds like any other generic mmo that has come out in the last 5 years. not impressed, and frankly i'm going to wait until it launches and see what players truly say about this game before i even think about it.

I dont think game companies plan on making crap games that they get to cash in on box sales lol. I personally think a lot of MMOs over the past few years have been failing because they has made things like VO story take first places over combat. Core mechanics of the game takes back seat and thats where many MMOs have failed. Games like ESO and Wildstar are talking more about the depth of the game then the flash. IMO ESO and Wildstar both show promis I have need seen sinse WoW launch.

I thought this game was going to be a pass for me - but the latest info/reveals really perk my interest.

I won't pre-order without playing the game first in beta.

If I don't make beta, I'll wait till after launch and see how it looks and such.

I am looking forward to it, the more I see and hear the more I look forward to giving it a try. But I RELIGIOUSLY will NEVER pre-order any game without having actually played it myself. Nope... never! Seen so many hopeful games in this genre turn out crap.

I like the customization options, like picking weapons/perks/armor/class. That seems cool.

also like what I saw with the RvR in this game.
 

 

But I still have some concerns.

the combat is non trinity, so that means zerg== win, again. With the open weapon system, it seems to me like a cover similar to how GW2 had it, since melee will be gimp until PvE nerfed. So they expect most people to run ranged weapon. Design like that, seem like a way of "Forcing" builds on players. I dont like that.

just commenting on the non-trinity = zerg win, not sure if you ever played other MMO before, but with Trinity = who has the most healers wins

And if you aren't familiar with the problems with CC, focus fire on Healers that Trinity causes then I realy don't know what to say.

interesting opinion

After all the BS releases of the last several years, pre-orders are dead to me. And no amount of hype or columns/previews/first-looks/exclusive whatevers from overly positive writers is going to change that.

The mood here @ MMORPG.com is totally opposite from a year ago lol. When I was kind of doom and gloom everyone else was misty eyed and hopeful.

So anyway, I'm not feeling TESO, I don't see the badassness but I love Skyrim to death...obviously. I actually think Neverwinter is looking pretty decent. Like everyone is saying, only time will tell, but hell no, no pre-orders for me either.

ya i think i will likely pre-order and play at launch. the only way i wouldn't is if it turned out to look like absolute trash when real game play videos come out.

i don't expect that to happen though. i just expect to have fun in this game for a few months and get my moneys worth, which is more than you can say about most single player games you buy for the same price.

This. I have not pre-ordered a game since Vanilla WoW. Fall for the hype and you just end up wasting your money. Pre-order falls in to the same catagory as a Life Time Sub for me. Just something I will never do. I'll wait until there is a free trial or an open beta.

I drop 60-80 bucks sometimes on 2-3 console games and its only 1 in 10 that has me replying it to death like Halo and TES. How many hours of fun do you get out of a game like that? 20-60hrs game play? Even a MMO like GW2 where I found the end game is the only place its borken. I still got months of play time and still log in for some PvP. Whats 60 bucks for even 1-2 months of game play? Compaird to console games it still good value. If the game intrests you, why not?
