PAX East 2013 : Wildstar and Elder Scrolls Online

Last weekend, I went to my first ever PAX Convention, and let me just say – there was a lot to do. While the show floor was filled to the brink with awesome single player, multi-player and even arcade games, two MMOs in particular grabbed my attention right away.

Let me just start by saying I'm not really what you would call a 'hardcore' MMO Player. I played WoW on one character (Worgen Druid) which I got to level seventy before quitting. I attempted other MMOs from time to time, but I always seemed to lose interest quickly. Combat doesn't seem to be fascinating enough, crafting gets repetitive and the social aspects of most current MMOs are really just... lacking.

That being said, PAX had two show-stopping MMOs on display, and playable – one you've probably heard of, and one you may not have. Which one got the edge up? I'll walk through a little compare and contrast and let you do the deciding. (Dev, PAX East 2013, PC, The Elder Scrolls Online, Wildstar)
