Elder Scrolls Online is becoming a lot more like a Skyrim MMO | Polygon

Polygon: "Elder Scrolls Online's creators at Zenimax Online Studios have taken feedback elicited by the game's early showings to heart; a fact evinced by the MMORPG's current, broad similarities with Bethesda's successful offline RPG The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim."

The story is too old to be commented.

Funny... I pretty much always thought Elder Scrolls Online would basically be Elder Scrolls Skyrim MMO.

^^ Same. It only makes sense to me to do it that way. People want more ES/Skyrim. Just with multiplayer. If they changed the way the game plays then it would no longer be an ES game and just some lame MMO clone with a few familiar faces/names.

Some people are not going to be happy that it isn't as "hardcore" (see "clunky combat", "messy interface", etc) as earlier ES games.

And Skyrim has weak combat. Incredibly weak combat. Almost any game with first-person melee combat did it better . . . years before Skyrim was even a thing. Also, are you saying that Skyrim's inventory management was well done? I beg to differ.

You literally just bashed past games on things that Skyrim suffers from as well. There's a lot of reasons why series vets still prefer older titles in the series. Don't pigeon-hole them with biased assessments on elements of previous releases you simply didn't take to.

He's not part of a small group that thinks that way, most people who've played say Oblivion and Skyrim, prefer Skyrim's way of doing things. And saying that vets prefer one thing over another is the sign of something being done wrong, vets will usually take to something their used to as opposed to something new regardless of whether it's better or worse.
