    Terrible.
    1) Are those recycled assets from skyrim? I understand porting or even imitating the styles, but flat out using the same textures? really?
    2) Same animations and body frame for all races. Looks like you'll get your choice of 'pointy ear human, black human, white human, hairy human, lizard human.' If you want to differentiate races you need to go further than just swapping textures and the head.
    It just works differently in an mmo where you need to differentiate the same model in a huge environment with many copies of it. Nobody is going to say 'Oh does that Breton have turquoise or deep blue eyes? I think his chin is slightly bigger than mine.'

    The game is aimed at long time Elder Scrolls fans and I would bet that it will have bigger sales figures than any other MMORPG coming out in 2014 simply because of it's fanbase.

    Hmm, not advocating for TESO, not even a fan of the RPGs, but there really aren't many good fantasy games out there. Emphasis on GOOD ;)

    Id say there's more Steampunky games than straight fantasy ones. Not only was Neverwinter the biggest pile of Rubbish when it could have been friking epic. Honestly I don't ever see a decent d&d mmo ever appearing and if TESO is good which honestly it probably wont be without the flexibility of the the parent games i expect it to fail as hard as EQ2 did. and honestly Id GIVE anything for a Planescape, Spelljammer or Dark Sun mmo but yeah never happening

    TESO isn't trying to reinvent the wheel or simply copy WoW like SWTOR did, though. The devs from TESO have actually stuck to lore and core gameplay mechanics from previous TES games. It will not flop like SWTOR did.

    You do have a point there. I'm sure the game will thrive and maybe I'm just bitter due to the lack of new information on Wildstar.

    Single player game that will be interesting all of about 1 month tops, just like FF ARR.

    It's not single player and I will put money on it not flopping like FF:ARR.

    It is skyrim online. The whole game is single player! What little multiplayer exist is dumbed down for the lowest common denominator on the console, which essentially makes it single player with other players nearby. Sort of like doing a quest in a group.

    FFXIV hasn't really been a flop as far as I know. It's still got a pretty solid playerbase and all of my friends who play it love it.

    It hasn't flopped as far as I know.

    I honestly don't think it's possible for such a game to flop.
    The IP alone will ensure that it turns a profit, regardless of how bad it is.

    I bought the game, and I quit after one day. It was <REDACTED>ing horrible!


    ESO is in a similar boat.
    It basically can't fail, but it's going to suck donkey balls.

    If you need evidence, watch this

    This forum has a lot of people addicted to haterade. Best get used to it. Maybe buy a shotgun when it gets really bad.

    Yeah... because footage from an unfinished version of the game totally represents what the final outcome will be. SMH.

    Nope. It just isn't for everyone.

    Even if I assume they make the game look better, and the animations decent, which are both horribad in that video, then there are still some major issues with that game.

    #1 Difficulty. Look at the video, it was a Free for fall.
    #2 Trinity has be <REDACTED> on, which goes back to #1, but it also means that everyone is going to be same.
    #3 Uniqueness of classes doesn't exist. Everyone can be everything. The epitome of no choice!
    #4 Alts pointless
    #5 Consoles
    #6 No open world pvp. In fact you can't even see the opposing faction in the open world outside one zone.
    #7 PvP confined only to one zone, meaning no BGs or arena.
    #8 Whole game is designed to be played in single player on one mega server.
    #9 Slapping a Subscription on an obvious Buy to play console game.
    #10 First person hand animations put into an MMORPG, which is meant to be played in 3rd person view.
    #11 Explicitly told the game community this would not be Skyrim Online, and now they have completely flip flopped and announced the game will be Skyrim online. This means a huge mismanagement of resources has taken place, and the developers are clueless as to what their end goal actually is.
    #12 No end game!
    etc.. etc..

    Yah, there is a 99.99% chance this game is going to suck.

    1 - You don't need the "trinity"
    2 - Every class is unique
    3 - Alts are not pointless
    4 - There IS open world PVP
    5 - The game will have regular patches and new content released on a regular basis
    6 - First-person view is awesome
    7 - There IS endgame content in the form of raids
    8 - Do your research before talking about things you have no clue about
