No my guess is the faction/race combo he want is there and an option for him.

Give me a Goblin or a dwarf! FFS Sick of playing as a human, again...

Argonian and Khajit are not human.  As for the rest then it sticks to the lore of the game just as SWTOR did.  Want to play some exotic race, then play some exotic game.  I hear Tera has poopori and WoW has Pandas.

Maybe it was just the 2 servers I played on, midgaurd outnumbered my faction 3 and sometimes 4 to 1 and I played Ab =-)

Def your server, most servers (the 2 I played on Guinevere and Nimue) the Albs were the largest faction.  Mid was usually 3rd Hib 2nd.

Sorry, thats off topic, shouldnt answer and it would lend credit to those that whine when someone hints at not having TES choices when they see what I am playing does have it and it would cause hate of epic proportions.

While I do not agree with Nan on you "hating" on the game I do wonder why even post in the sub forums of a game you obviously do not like?  What do you get out of it, what agenda do you have?

Usually the butthurt are those who bring up the topic of being butthurt...anyway.. we're all gamers here, if you know of a better option for a TES style of play in MMO format speak up.

Was hoping you would say that, not being a hypocrit I am sure you would then agree that those that usually bring up hate, are the haters. Seeing as how all I did was answer the OPs question, what race I would like to play and adding why...it sure did bring out the hate....to the point where people even demanded to know what other games I play!

Thanks!

PS. Answer your last question many times in other threads only to get more hate from the exact same people who want nothing more than another DaoC game and everyone and everything else be damned. Some people just cant handle opinions without getting all...pissy.

Yeah. I played Albion in Guin also. We were the largest most of the time but it did vary and wasn't as unbalanced as others. Very early on, before there were many 50s and before the CC nerfs, "Stungard" was dominant for a while.

I wana see all 3 areas with the races they were designed for. I will play the other 2 areas just to do that but only one faction will be my main stay. I love games that have replay value.

True.. but...Some might assume "pissy" was the desired effect of such quips.

As for the daoc inference. Well this and CU are games inspired by that game, hence the DAOC fans having an interest in it. I can't imagine the case would be different if this game was targetting UO or SWG fans, or OG EQ fans. The fans would have expectations based on what they viewed as essential to what created the experience any of those games were known for. Just look at the pure TES fans they display this behavior as well.

Ya this is truning into a bit of a deam MMO for me. My fav single play RPG is TES and my fav MMO is DAoC and I have been dieing for a MMO to bring back open world dungeons. If they added player housing they could take my money now lol

Dunmer most probably. Gonna start with a caster this time and this race fits very well into that role.

True, and you know why the word assume starts with those three letters, because thats what a person is for doing it. Rather obvious seeing as how they cant even stand the idea of a person answering in a way that doesnt fit inside their little box.

As for games inspired by DaoC, as you can see by how wonderful CU is doing with its kickstarter, you can plainly see why so many people are disgusted with TES being turned into one...so few people like the design, that the one that isnt using a popular IP to do it cant get enough people to help make it. Goes to show that without the name, this game wouldnt have much a following at all.

While DAOC isn't my all time favorite MMO it was some of the best PVP I've seen in a game. TES has had some of the best lore, as well as delivery methods of that lore in RPG's past and present. I'm hoping to get some of that here. Not to mention a chance at seeing lands I've yet to see, but have read/heard much about in TES games. Yeah I think this might be a great game all in all. Even considering the absense of TES like freedoms.

That said, I do have to say on topic my first alt will be redguard.

Well to be fair CSE did start a kickstarter with little to back up the vision being sold. Not to mention the absense of the entire second half of what made up DAOC (the PVE). I know MJ plans to have certain PVE elements, but they are not what were available in DAOC.

I can't really agree that absent TEs this game would automatically have no following. That's something we can not possibly know.

Im a DAoC fan and I am not paying to develop a game that I dont even have game play footage for. With no PvE as a MMOer CU does not hold much of a chance of getting my money even if the game comes out and does well. I loved DAoC RvR but I also loved their PvE. But I am getting off topic. 

I really wana play an elf but I dont think my wife will like the Darkelves very much as she likes things to be also purdy. So It will most likely be woodelves or highelves.

Yeah its weird but it seems to be mostly rabid gw2 fanbois that really really hate daoc, and start Trolling all over cu, daoc and TESO threads.

I understand people who hate TESO for not "being tes", whatever that is. I have massive concerns myself that we are in for yet another round of wow style pve. I get there's people that thought it would play like uo or vanguard or whatever, I myself thought it would play like tes in the inner game and eve in its multiplayer aspects.

But the people who also go troll daoc, its probably an inferiority complex thing.

Afterall gw2 is to daoc as wow is to EQ
