Good interview.. Sounds a lot like DAoC with the walls and choke points, which I think is awesome.

Wish they would have expanded how the AvA will work on a megaserver, how they are pulled in, how you can consistantly work with the same people, like you could with individual servers.

AvA isn't open world PvP, it's RvR PvP.  Open world PvP would being able to fight anywhere in the world, which they do not allow.

I guess in a way it is open world but it's misleading and confusing to the more traditional defination of  World PvP.  There is only 1 way to PvP in ESO and that is in the center via DAoC RvR (AvA).

Wait, how is this open PvP if its in closed spaces?!? I really hate it when a company feels the need to lie about their product, this falls in line with their saying it isnt instanced because they are calling instances campaigns.

Guess they are hoping to trick the large portion of the TES fanbase that are pissed at them into thinking the game is more like TES than DaoC.

Because I like to carrying a sword and sling some spells at the same time. Am I going to have to equip a stave, wand, or something like that to use spells? That's really suck and be extremely unlike TES. Tue Mar 19 2013 4:15PM Report
