Elder Scrolls MMO Announced

Elder Scrolls Online Announced
Leave a Comment
Posted 13 minutes ago - By Stephen Johnson

The Elder Scrolls Online has been announced by Bethesda. It is being developed for PC and Mac under the leadership of Matt Firor, who has spent the last two decades working in online game development.

“We have been working hard to create an online world in which players will be able to experience the epic Elder Scrolls universe with their friends, something fans have long said they wanted,” said Matt Firor, game director of The Elder Scrolls Online. “It will be extremely rewarding finally to unveil what we have been developing the last several years. The entire team is committed to creating the best MMO ever made – and one that is worthy of The Elder Scrolls franchise.”

Details are scant at this time, but expect a screenshot later today and a teaser trailer tomorrow.

See I find that more fun. As long as most abilities will not raid wipe. Then there would be no way to just copy what is on youtube.

When I was playing EQ2 three years ago, most encounters had 3 maybe 4 major abilities that you had to deal with, 15 would be insane. Also, note that I listed 20 total possibilities, but only 15 on hard mode, this would mean that the players would still not be able to count on any specific ability, and still keep it fresh.

Also, these are major abilities, like huge attacks, heals, stuns and other stuff like that, not just standard auto-attack, potential raid wiping abilities.
See that sounds fun. I hated having to study for a run. I want to have fun, even when hardcore raiding. Guessing what is coming next is fun. As long as most of the abilities are not insta wipe damages adds excitement.

I would also enjoy world bosses of different factions/races. Where I am going with this is if your race/faction protected them from dying got a reward. If the enemy faction/race defeated them got a reward.

And have more dev events, some of the most fun I have had is when the devs took control of bosses and brought them into the cities for pure mayhem. Randomly do that once a week on each server during high population times.

It's pretty bland.

No sense of open world exploration at all.

And I can't even steal a horse.

If I can't steal horses, it's not an Elder Scrolls game.

**** you Bethesda.

I think they planned on taking your money first then adding in an actual crime system afterwards in a later patch.

It just doesn't feel like an Elder Scrolls game. I can't steal shit. I see a sword laying on the ground. Can't pick it up.

Went into a palace to do a quest. It was way too easy, first of all. Second of all, there was no ****ing palace to explore. I wanted to go down into the dungeons and steal shit, rob the king blind.

**** this game.

Bro, it's an MMO. If you like the Bethesda experience, you're going to have to wait for Fallout 4.

I've had fun in MMOs before. LOTRO was fun. SWG and SWTOR were fun.

I'm done with this.

I was speaking more to your point that ESO did not feel like an ES product.

I tried the beta again and I just can not get into this game. Something about the mechanics, the way you move around and execute skills, just does not seem very smooth. Just seems lacking.
