Elder Scrolls Online Videos: E3 Interview with Game Director Matt Firor (9:13)

Simply continues to not impress. Everything I continue to hear about TESO is more of the same tired model people have vehemontly said with SWTOR that they no longer want to see (thank god).

 

Speaking from a developer point of view. I wonder how many devs over on the TESO team had their hearts shattered from all the negativity hitting them once it was released. I feel kind of bad that their suits ruined something they worked so hard for :(!

Matt Firor is a LEGEND, he was a huge part of Dark Age of Camelot and if he's heading up ESO, it's going to be one hell of a game. - Ripper X

I started out not very interested in TESO and i cant say any info on it has got me interested in it yet, theres nothing really revolutionary about any of it.

 

 But the gritty look and feel of it does have me very interested in it.

He states at one point that you will be able to take on a different role to not be excluded from groups.

 

This fact is one of the main reasons I don't play engame anymore. Raids used to have truly challening mechanics that took large amounts of time to master. Now anyone can switch to some role they have played for 4 hours total and kill the hardest raid boss in the game the 4th time they fight him.

 

It's sad.

Well he did say you'd have to play with said weapons to be good with them. Gain experience and level them up doesn't sound like 4 hours to me. Regardless only a small % of the player base can dedicate to wow style raids and to say they had "truly challenging mechanics" is quite an overstatement. I'm not saying they shouldn't be difficult or rewarding, but I don't think they should be forcing you into niche roles in order to beat them either. Wow was stupid with that. I'm pretty hardcore in that I play for hours and hours and gotta claw my way to the top of every heirarchy I come across, but I want to do it in my own fashion. If I want to be the fairy ass warrior with a healing staff then god damn it I will. I won't, but you get my drift.

This statement baffles me. Nothing that Firor says here resembles SWTOR, except the PVE part. I would like to know what people think they would like to see. Do some players really expect that a new game should be entirely unique from the ground up? What would that give us? A game where you have to do nothing to level? Play QUAKE! No levels, no PVE requirement.

I am looking forward to TESO and have been ever since I set my firdst virtual foot in Morrowind. I played Arena and Daggerfall way back when MMORGPs were not even in existence, and after Ultima Underworld came out thought how cool it might be to share the experience with another player, so for this step to ne taken, I say KUDOS!

Also, it sounds like PVP will be worthwhile in this system, not just a gankfest for points, but a system where you battle for a greater purpose and actually gain benefits from conquest. A player Emperor! Now THAT ROCKS!

You know I love the games prior to this but I'm sorry I think GW2 is going to set a pretty HIGH bar for this one to try and clear.  Since it sounds like they are going to try to throw every element in to it that works for other MMO's that have their own little unique niche.  And being that it's slated to be released 2yrs from now this would make it a very average MMO with no real surprises.  This is why Warhammer 40,000 Online decided not to go the MMO route.

Synergy, thats how they are going to encourage social interaction. I wish the early reviews had explained this. Heck I wish this guy has said more.

This was kinda freaky to watch because both Hillary and Matt like to wave their hands around when they talk.

One is not older than one feels I used to say. In her brain I guess Pokket just is a gameloving kid like the rest of us :) Not everyone of us that is brave enough to stand for it visually.

I like pizza btw

This game will be a success just from the amount of old DAOC players. The exploration sounds awesome, so does the quest system. Not sure about the combat only haveing 6 slots and no autoattack. We will see if it has an  autostick function. 3 factions is how an open war zone should be. If the combat is good then this game is going to be good. If not then it will be short lived. I am excited.

So, one of the main aspects of this game will be pvp zergfests with 200 people?

Hotbar with only 6 slots? Did I really get that one right? And no autoattack? If so, combat won't have much variations...

Won't spend a dime on this game - no other MMO has ever sounded worse pre-release than this one, imo.
