This game reeks of SWTOR syndrome.  Just  like Tor this game is focusing on a single player "experience" where other players are just turds running around while you have you epic adventure. I foresee a failure of Tortanic proportion, which quite frankly makes me even more excited for this game because there is nothing better than a good old fashioned hate mob. I'm sharping my pitchfork as we speak!

It has TES lore and... scratch that. I think even the lore has been twisted for this game.

It doesn't look like "just another mmo" Character customization looks like it might be good. Cyrodill is the key. If it's great the game might be pretty good. 

 

We'll see.

I agree with Nodvia that this game is setting itself up for a severe beatdown with the way it's trying to segregate people into three separate zones that you can't freely walk to if you want to without finishing that questline there first.

I just see this as another IP that is going to get smothered under the weight of a meh product by crushing a lot of what the original feeling of the series to this date accomplished (Open world that lets you go wherever within that world). The structured pvp within the center of the map sounds great and interested to see how this megaserver ends up. going to be interested for sure to see if it turns into an instance nightmare like how TORTANIC ended up (grabs popcorn and sits down in anticipation )

I want an mmorpg where pvp matters, my enemies are not my race or class, and community matters.

Just another mmo:  5 classes and races that all pvp each other in a simplistic battleground.  Pve includes massive gear grind, silly pets and oddities that mostly Asian markets enjoy. 

 

 

 

ESO:  3 realms that are uniquely different.  This means that you actually pvp against races and classes that are not mirrors of your own.  This just doesn't happen in today's industry folks.

So, this is not just another mmo - to even suggest that shows a lack of understanding of what a tri-realm RvR mmorpg has to offer.  So yes, I'm not so worried about them taking their time.  They have an amazing team and are doing good things that most mmorpg developers couldn't even comprehend because it's outside of the WoW model.

If only they actually looked at the TES games and created a free form character progression. Oh well, who's ready to play ranger, cleric, warrior, rogue, and mage?

We'll see.

 I've never known a player to stick around because of character customization alone.  And the PvP is only good for one type of gamer, sadly I am not that type.  What is missing is elements that made me play Asheron's Call for close to 14 years. 

I've played Rift, GW2, TSW and now Neverwinter since I quit WoW and even though all of the games have fun aspects, none of them has the depth that made me want to stick around past a few months.  Sadly I do not see anything in TESO that will break the mold.  Hopefully EQNext brings elements into the genre that stick around but more importantly keep the players sticking around.

 

I like many of the elements of TESO, including the Skill tree system, the open ended armor/weapon system, public dungeons, Action Combat and limited hotbar deck building system but sadly I do not see that keeping me in game for longer then when the novelty wears off.  If you're into PvP, sure the game looks great and I am probably going to have to get my PvP grove back on if I want to enjoy TESO for longer then 2-3 months.

 

 

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!

Everyone keeps saying they will lose interest after 2 - 3 months. However, if I remember correctly, it takes over 200 hours to complete all the quests in a single faction, and then you can do quests for the other factions after level 40 I think. 

Now assuming you played 5 days a week you would need to play and only quest each of those days about 3 1/2 hours to complete with in 3 months. For a lot of you, I will most certainly say that is possible and probably fairly easy to achieve. 

If we start talking about completing the other 2 factions, then you are looking at having to quest 10 1/2 hours each day, 5 days a week. Or you can spread that out to a 9 month period and keep the 3 1/2 hours instead.

With this said, unless you get bored easily, I conclude if you some how exhaust everything in this game with in 3 months, you play to much lol.

In all honesty, if it is even remotely anything like Syyrim, I will enjoy it tons. I will probably even do a Let's Play of it.

I'd be interested in hearing more about that.  Morrowind was the first first-person CRPG I played, and I really loved it (especially the lore).  Learning all about the Dwemer, the Dunmer, the different Houses, the old burial sites... it was just... epic.

Is this even set in the same universe?

Yes, ESO is set in the same universe. As for the lore being twisted as Mtibbs1989 said? NO ... well not likely. Apparently from what they have said, they are going back and fourth between Bethesda to make sure all the lore works. So, at most the lore can only be slightly off and probably would be highly unnoticeable to most other than hardcore fans, but if that happens Bethesda is at fault as well.

Game is moving closer to WoW and away from the ES feel. Losing my enchantment with the game, unfortunately. Guess I'll jump on the EQN hype wagon.

Ya know I normally wouldn't bump a negative short sighted thread like this, but:

I visited my neighbors last night and well they were playing Skyrim together. Gaming is something that brings them together as they got a big HDTV and  PS3. I remember before Skyrim visiting with a different couple a couple of years back they were playing Oblivion together and were having a good time with it. My son and I both played Oblivion and Skyrim; this is saying alot as I cannot hardly play single player games as I prefer MMOs. To this day my son says his favorites games are Oblivion and Skyrim and he is so looking forward to Elder Scrolls Online, as am I. Now consider both Oblivion and Skyrim are both Elder Scrolls games and single player games which have alot of replayability (This says alot for any single player game!).

Elder Scrolls Online is going to have a bigger world then Daggerfall/Morrowind/Oblivion/Skyrim all put together as its going to display the entirety of Tamriel and its going to have 3 different alliances (comprised of 9 races total) so you can play and enjoy all 3 alliances content thoroughly for 100s of hours doing alot of what many previously enjoyed playing Elder Scrolls games in the past, yet within a community of many other real life players. Crafting, Trading, Partying/Socializing, Exploring/Adventuring, Duels, Buying/Selling, Guilds, etc...enjoying everything you would in any other Elder Scrolls game yet with 100s of other players simultaneously interacting in a huge medieval themepark.

Elder Scrolls online will be played on PC/Mac, Xbox One, and Playstation 4 (Next Generation Consoles) with all the graphical goodness of Skyrim at highest settings (if not better) operating at optimum performance on your HDTV.

If that doesn't grab you where it counts and kick you where the good lord split you; You can venture to Cryodiil with all your buddies you enjoy playing with and alongside to participate in every aspect of PvP; keeps, towns, buildings, NPCs/MOBs, siege warfare on all types of terrain in some of the largest scale PvP many of you will ever experience for countless hours. Your alliance can overcome the other 2 alliances (which I doubt will be an easy task) over time, which provides bonuses for your alliance teammates with the capturing of keeps/lands. If by some slim margin your alliance is properly motivated and successful in dominating the other 2 alliances (again I don't see this happening easily)  and aquiring/holding all lands/keeps in Cryodiil, you can sit one of your own on the Ruby Throne as Emperor and have supremecy over all of Tamriel!

If you are not convinced this has chance to be a good game then I irrefutably doubt you, your expeience with playing any of the Elder Scrolls games, your experience as a MMORPG player, and any of your opinions/posts from this point forward...

Consider wtf your posting, before you post a thread of any kind on a public forum, often comprising 1000s of visitors daily...

You never actually played Daggerfalll did you. Running from one end of Morrowind to the other is probably an hour, maybe an hour and a half. Oblivion is under an hour. Skyrim about the same I think. Daggerfall is so huge it would take many many hours to do that. It is that big. ESO will be far smaller than you will imagine, regarless of how many area will be put ingame.

As for graphics, maybe if compared to console graphics, but it will not look as good as topline PC graphics. This is just being realistic. 

I won't buy it anyway as it gutted everything I liked from TES.

Uh 1996 Daggerfall was released...gee I wonder why it took many hours...hrmm let me ponder that for a bit...go freakin figure as everything was so slow technologically it would take you forever to go anywhere

Your saying ESO is going to be far smaller then I would imagine....your speaking as if you have played the game in its entirety and your in the same boat as the rest of us without any idea whatsoever. Considering how large Tamriel is I would ascertain your sadly mistaken as it will be bigger then Daggerfall/Morrowind/Oblivion/Skyrim put together...prove me otherwise or don't even reply.

Next Generation Consoles own the current generation consoles so when your playing your console...take some time to imagine and you may have some idea its pretty much on par with really good PCs at this time. Also who wants to have to design top of the line PCs to play a MMORPG and have to be constantly concerned if they are going to be able to run the game well enough?

Why even bother to post on this forum if your not interested in buying this game whatsoever?

 Eww... don't do that. That's even worse than the lack of awesomeness that's in ESO. EQN is all speculation that's already setting itself up for failure for the majority of its fan base.

I visited my neighbors last night and well they were playing Skyrim together. Gaming is something that brings them together as they got a big HDTV and  PS3. I remember before Skyrim visiting with a different couple a couple of years back they were playing Oblivion together and were having a good time with it. My son and I both played Oblivion and Skyrim; this is saying alot as I cannot hardly play single player games as I prefer MMOs. To this day my son says his favorites games are Oblivion and Skyrim and he is so looking forward to Elder Scrolls Online, as am I. Now consider both Oblivion and Skyrim are both Elder Scrolls games and single player games which have alot of replayability (This says alot for any single player game!).

Elder Scrolls Online is going to have a bigger world then Daggerfall/Morrowind/Oblivion/Skyrim all put together as its going to display the entirety of Tamriel and its going to have 3 different alliances (comprised of 9 races total) so you can play and enjoy all 3 alliances content thoroughly for 100s of hours doing alot of what many previously enjoyed playing Elder Scrolls games in the past, yet within a community of many other real life players. Crafting, Trading, Partying/Socializing, Exploring/Adventuring, Duels, Buying/Selling, Guilds, etc...enjoying everything you would in any other Elder Scrolls game yet with 100s of other players simultaneously interacting in a huge medieval themepark.

Elder Scrolls online will be played on PC/Mac, Xbox One, and Playstation 4 (Next Generation Consoles) with all the graphical goodness of Skyrim at highest settings (if not better) operating at optimum performance on your HDTV.

If that doesn't grab you where it counts and kick you where the good lord split you; You can venture to Cryodiil with all your buddies you enjoy playing with and alongside to participate in every aspect of PvP; keeps, towns, buildings, NPCs/MOBs, siege warfare on all types of terrain in some of the largest scale PvP many of you will ever experience for countless hours. Your alliance can overcome the other 2 alliances (which I doubt will be an easy task) over time, which provides bonuses for your alliance teammates with the capturing of keeps/lands. If by some slim margin your alliance is properly motivated and successful in dominating the other 2 alliances (again I don't see this happening easily)  and aquiring/holding all lands/keeps in Cryodiil, you can sit one of your own on the Ruby Throne as Emperor and have supremecy over all of Tamriel!

If you are not convinced this has chance to be a good game then I irrefutably doubt you, your expeience with playing any of the Elder Scrolls games, your experience as a MMORPG player, and any of your opinions/posts from this point forward...

Consider wtf your posting, before you post a thread of any kind on a public forum, often comprising 1000s of visitors daily...

You never actually played Daggerfalll did you. Running from one end of Morrowind to the other is probably an hour, maybe an hour and a half. Oblivion is under an hour. Skyrim about the same I think. Daggerfall is so huge it would take many many hours to do that. It is that big. ESO will be far smaller than you will imagine, regarless of how many area will be put ingame.

As for graphics, maybe if compared to console graphics, but it will not look as good as topline PC graphics. This is just being realistic. 

I won't buy it anyway as it gutted everything I liked from TES. 

Uh 1996 Daggerfall was released...gee I wonder why it took many hours...hrmm let me ponder that for a bit...go freakin figure as everything was so slow technologically it would take you forever to go anywhere

Your saying ESO is going to be far smaller then I would imagine....your speaking as if you have played the game in its entirety and your in the same boat as the rest of us without any idea whatsoever. Considering how large Tamriel is I would ascertain your sadly mistaken as it will be bigger then Daggerfall/Morrowind/Oblivion/Skyrim put together...prove me otherwise or don't even reply.

Next Generation Consoles own the current generation consoles so when your playing your console...take some time to imagine and you may have some idea its pretty much on par with really good PCs at this time. Also who wants to have to design top of the line PCs to play a MMORPG and have to be constantly concerned if they are going to be able to run the game well enough?

Why even bother to post on this forum if your not interested in buying this game whatsoever?

 

 Lore twisting works wonders. I imagine the entire world will have major landmarks from the older games  however the entire ES universe will be shrunk down for this game.


Somebody, somewhere has better skills as you have, more experience as you have, is smarter than you, has more friends as you do and can stay online longer. Just pray he's not out to get you.

The dev's have repeatedly commented on making it an Elder Scrolls game first and foremost but yet none of the truly TES style game design elements have been showcased. 

That's probably because the whole "elder scrolls game first" mantra is a recent development.

If you look at what they initially said it was more about creating an mmo that utilized the elder scrolls universe and would draw in mmo players.

yadda, yadda, yadda, my guess is that they got a lot of elder scrolls fans in the beta who really didnt' like this tack.

The developers suddenly realized that in essence they were playing with fire so decided to extend the development time and add a lot of those elements.

At least those that would make sense in an mmo format.
