The topic of the video is the good one, but this video doesn't add anything to the debate. You're just reading the news everyone read on mmorpg.com . It would have been nice to have some different point of views and not half of the video just repeating the quote from Zenimax.

I really liked the previous videos btw, but if you're talking about a hot topic, at least ask questions to the viewers: what's your stance on add-ons ? Which one did you try and what did it do for you ?

things like that. Thanks

I mean... add-ons are meant to make things easier in some way, so naturally ALL add-ons give someone an edge in something automatically. So it doesn't matter if one wants to and one doesn't for more immersion. The people that don't want to use it are ALWAYS the ones that will be negatively effected.

The real thing is being able to stop people from getting medium or greater edges. I don't quite see how this will be possible unless all add-ons must get special access to be used and can only be downloaded via ESO website.

Player werewolves and vampires are already at a disadvantage, but if i can just target them from a distance and tell what they are so that I can just switch to my bow or fire staff, then I have gained an advantage that the base UI does not allow.

nate1980 writes: I'm fine with add-ons as long as they don't give players and advantage in PvP or PvE. One issue I had with WoW was that they allowed add-ons that gave such advantages that guilds required them in order to raid, such as the DBM. Other add-ons had a way of alienating other people, such as DPS meters, and I don't approve of those either. Basically, I feel that with add-ons, players must still be on a level playing field. A forum poster made the comment of using add-ons to show what buffs and debuffs they and their opponents have, and add-ons that show health bars of the enemy team. I believe these kind of add-ons would give an unfair advantage to those who use them, making it mandatory for all parties interested in PvP to use them if they take PvP seriously. Those sort of add-ons should not be allowed. I guess we'll see as the game progresses. Sat Mar 08 2014 9:16PM Report

I like using add-on. The UI is very minimal in ESO. I want more info on my screen.

If this means I play the screen, not the game. So be it. Its how I like to play.

Giving an advantage to others is clearly not what they intended with add-ons. Im sure they address that soon enough.
