Mike discusses his hopes that Elder Scrolls Online will live up to the experiences he had while playing Skyrim.
I held off on ESO and am still on the fence with starting it. Does it offer anything interesting or different as far as MMO's are concerned?
Main claim to fame was the combat/equip/class system. Buuuuuut.... I've heard very mixed things.
Why the disagrees with the question? Don't understand people sometimes.
I'm convinced there are people that just go through a disagree with everything, regardless of what the comment is. How do you disagree with a question? lol
How dare he ask for our opinions! Downvote this man.
Think the normal Elder Scrolls formula but with stakes raised since you have hundreds of other players being Assassin's, Thieves, Knights, Mages....Etc. Can't wait, I'd prefer to have a Elder Scrolls 6 with them drawing more inspiration from Morrowind and Oblivion but until then this will fill my need for TES. Re-reading the books right now.
If you are familiar with MMOs there are quite a few things ESO does that is very unique, choada cited Combat which is very obviously the most drastic difference. But there are many features that are great as well. For instance trading items can only be done within a clan. I will say that the biggest draw of this game (besides lore) is the PvP content. It is so well done and very exciting to be a part of an enormous army rolling over the hills like a tidal wave, coordination and tactics are very well rewarded. This game is for people who dont mind playing a small role in very large groups. Although you will have those warriors who seem to cause an entire army to cripple. I love this game but that does not mean everyone will.
This game is an abomination that should never have existed.
I hear that Elder Scrolls Online is pretty buggy, sadly. So no, probably not.
Do NOT hype yourself with this game. It might be worth of shot, but don't think of it as a Bethesda made Elder Scrolls because its not. This game was outsourced.
This exactly, They outsourced it to a Chinese development studio, and you can tell, it is mired with issues and lacks the Bethesda touch.
The Bethesda touch is a game mired with issues.. Will wait a year and see the game after a few patches and expansions before buying
It's really a shame to see a great franchise do something like that. They weren't the first and I'm sure they won't be the last either.
No, it's very dull and lacks features you expect from modern MMOs. I played it for three months, the best part was collecting flowers
Why would you waste 25% of a YEAR playing a game that you find dull?
Because i was given a three month subscription? When you're playing something for review you don't play it for few hours and go 'WELL TIME TO REVIEW IT I GUESS!''
Did you play the game when it first came out? I've heard it's changed for the better. All of the streams I watched for ps4 beta had people getting excited. I can't wait to try it.
Anyone interested in this do yourselves a favor and find a way to try it without spending any money on it first, just some friendly advice.
It's a mistake to think of it like that. MMOs are very different games. There's no way ESO will have the same level of detail in the world, or even the animations. Having said that, I enjoy MMOs so I'm interested but if the next proper Elder Scrolls game was about to release I'd be frothing at the mouth.
was never much of an elder scrolls fan. Always stuck to fallout instead. An MMO fallout would grab my attention far more then this.
I'm still on this fence about this game...I've done my research and I don't see this being better than ffxiv:arr. And on top of the ARR expansion comes out next month as well soooooo...
I just want Elder Scrolls 6 !
I am looking forward to playing this with a few of my mates it looks far better now after that bad launch it had with the bugs and stuff i have had it preordered from last time it was suppose to release last June or whatever but I think it'll be a good laugh with a few friends.
