How many people here are looking to try/play elder scrolls online when it comes out?
I have a beta key. Meh, not really my thing. But who knows where life takes us. Lol
I would have if it wasn't for the following:
Initial purchase is INSANELY expensive and then a sub on top of that
The pre order is GG (explorer's bonus) - can be any race in Alliances, after which the racial restrictions apply
Imperial edition is pay to win - perma xp boost, horse and exclusive race and armour (basically stripped content out and selling it to you for cash)
I had a few problems with the game itself and I didn't even realize the stuff you've mentioned (Except the price)
This is a definite no from me.
its a no for me
I will play for at least a month as it come with 30days sub. As to the imperial mount its terrible as mounts have a speed/stamina/capacity stats and the imperial is one of the lowest (its only a cheap mount to get your riding at low levels). The combat is nice as your aim rather that target and cast. Not sure how raiding will be but am interested to see.
i was generally interested even got given a beta key, but when i got into the game i was uninterested in the story, it just seems like they ported skyrim ( a game ive already over played ) into a mmo world. and made the combat system horrible. just feels to unrealistic for me. so also a no from me.
I love the story and have preordered intending to play, yes the starting story is boring but most starting stories in mmo are terrible.
Once you get to about the 3rd zone there are some really cool quirks that you would only get after playing oblivion,skyrim,morrowind but all in all i think its ok, the combat was a little poopy but its still to be completed. I know another 2 from kg that are also goign to be avid players of eso.
Unfortunately looking at it, it's a big money grabber...
Big price, monthly sub, in game cosmetic shop?
Not really gonna invest into this...
I bought Imperial Retail Edition :3
piss poor, uninventive, dull, money grabbing, jumping on the back of syrim's success attempt at an MMO.
Well ive pre-ordered
MMOs always have a doggy launch and there are always people bashing them before they played it.
i've played all the beta testing for eso and i will be play i've ben playing elder scrolls since morowind
I've played es since morrowind and I'm gonna give this a huge pass.
Looking forward to seeing what the next Elderscrolls game is.
Some other people i used to play with for a very long time probably go Aldmeri Dominion, just saying
I had a weekend Key and have to say, i did not like it at all. There are other better MMOS out there, that are even free 2 play..
I do have the beta key, but meh it's a too much pay to play game.
Played all the betas, it's OK, but I dislike the combat system ( I also hated it at skyrim, it's just not that smooth imo.) however, I'm willing to give it a shot though.
