The inactivity of this forum.
Thu Apr 02, 2015 11:06 pm by Burkman
It's depressing to see how inactive it has been recently. I mean, everybody is pretty much primarily posting in the never ending thread now and there's not enough people here to make this place really booming. We need to find some way to bring more people here before this place just fades into nothingness...

I know for a fact that a lot of boards out there are thriving because of how many people are there. We just need to get back into the game and pull people here. However, where we obtain these people might matter, because we don't to end up pulling in douches like those at Selkath.

I understand that people are busy these days, but it doesn't seem like they're rarely at their computer anymore. I know most of you are still dicking around with your computer. I don't know how we …

I liked TOR and I liked WoW. So I guess some people will say I have a liking towards shitty games. OMG!

It's all personal preference. I'm sure most people just don't like TES:O because it's a traditional MMO.

That's part of the reason I'm worried about getting GW2. It's going to be weird for me to get used to a non-traditional MMO. But I'll still be buying it. And TES:O.

I never played the first Guild Wars. In fact, I knew nothing about it until I looked up the stuff. I'm still getting it. And you're seriously going to risk TES Online being absolutely awful? You're going to risk paying $60+ for something that could be shit? I don't care if you don't play WoW, because I hate WoW now. At least give Guild Wars 2 a whack. I can guarantee you that it will be pretty good if not better.

Monthly subscriptions suck dick. You're welcome to play TOR, but TES Online is an unknown. And from what I seen, it looks like poop.

I can't miss anything I don't play... I have no interest in MMOs in general... I don't have the time or interest for them... TOR and TESO are relate-able for me... and yes maybe they will be crap... but it wont matter if I have nothing to compare them to in my previous experiences. And if I GENUINELY don't like how they play... I'll just quit them. I'm a console guy anywho...

Well I'm glad you're as honest as you are. This is one of the reasons why I highly respect you.

Since I just got my copy of Game Informer (just because I get the card for points from Gamestop) I figured I'd post up whatever I read:

  • They want it to appeal to Skyrim and MMO players (duh)
  • Stylized realism over photorealism (fairly normal)
  • Compass points towards things of interest (just like the games)
  • Third person hotbar mechanics
  • Suggests that events like seeing a group of bandits attacking an elderly couple, and waiting until they were occupied to kill them all exists in the MMO
  • Guilds
  • Can't master every discipline
  • "almost anything you can see can be explored, but you might have to level up a bit before you can survive the dangers"
  • The size of the game world dwarfs Skyrim
  • Takes place 1000 years before the Septim Dynasty in the third era
  • Three Armies made up of three races (already knew this)
  • Each army fights against the Imperials who have been weakened a bit by previous wars
  • The Tharn family (reference to someone from Arena) wants to bring everything back under Imperial control
  • The Tharn family has teamed up with "The King of Worms" Mannimarco (altmer necromancer who promises zombie soldiers for their army)
  • Mannimarco is actually scheming with (or likely being manipulated by) the Prince of Rape himself, Molag Bal.
  • The player character has "already had their soul stolen by Molag Bal" so they can justify coming back to life over and over.
  • Areas that will be in game: Summerset Isles, Elsweyr, Skyrim, Morrowind
  • Some others are being held back for expansion content
  • There will be a Nord stronghold at Windhelm, but no Mages' College at launch
  • Ebonheart Pact: Nords, Dunmer, and Argonians
  • Aldemeri Dominion: Altmer, Bosmer, Khajit
  • Daggerfall Covenant: Bretons, Redguard, Orcs
  • Todd Howard "checks in from time to time to make sure they're keeping the war real"
  • Fully voiced npc conversations (dunno if this means TOR-style fully voiced or Elder Scrolls style fully voiced, cause there is a big difference between the two)
  • Public Dungeons: caves and ruins that are "designed in much the same way as the private instanced dungeons in recent MMOs like WoW and TOR"
  • "Hubless" design to combat, you are free to explore the world as long as you are the right level

    Example: You don't have a quest to clear out a tunnel of undead, but releasing a shade at the end by killing a necromancer will get you a reward
  • Stamina bar is important in combat
  • Fighter's Guild rep is obtained by fighting butthole-esque "Dark Anchors" which have something to do with Molag Bal
  • You can eventually get new abilities and skills from the FG
  • Combo skills like that from Guild Wars will be in the game (oil slik + fire magic and whirlwind melee attack + firestorm = fire tornado that shoots fireballs)
  • No aggro tables, every person is expected to more or less take care of themselves, although there are still general trinity/team mechanics
  • Finesse is how good you are with your character
  • Maxing it currently gives a loot chest and unlocks your charged up super ability
  • We should expect player like behavior from computer monsters
  • Lore books also can be used for Guild rep
  • DAOC-like pvp (or Warhammer if you know that better)
  • Vaermina will show up in a certain portion of the game
  • Crafting system will exist but they won't say more
  • Birth signs are in game
  • Constellations are in game too (Mundus stones are like Guardian stones in Skyrim)
  • Mounts will be in the game and they will make sense according to the lore
  • Wayshrines enable fast travel and resurrection points (and it's only wayshrine to wayshrine)
  • Stealth is in the game atm, but still working on it
  • "not talking about pets"
  • No plans for player housing
  • No npc romances
  • The crowned player (once your faction has taken over) is whoever has contributed the most according to the game

They tried. They cancelled the contract. It's Champions Online. Everything after Character Creation is a load of poo and horrible micros.


I'm sure that the world needs more outdated typical run of the mill century old restrained MMOs so I am really excited. No, I really mean that honestly. After this fall hilarious flat developer might get the point.

They could have made it so we can create our own hero/villain.

For some reason I feel like I've played a Zinimax game before... under the TES name... wait... what did ZeniMax do for the previous TES games?

ZeniMax started up in 2007 and never developed anything for Bethesda games. They acquired publishing rights to Rage, but that's about it.

I don't know if they "developed" anything... I'm just saying I've seen the name on the TES games... for what purpose IDK. Maybe it's just cause it looks similar to one of the Bethesda logos...

Well, I call Bethesda Game Studios just plain Bethesda because that seems much easier than being super precise. Besides which it happens to be an in-house studio. Say whaaa?

The point is, ZeniMax is playing the "lolweownu" card and making a game with a completely different team. These are completely new people to Elder Scrolls. Basically, this has as much in common with Skyrim as TOR does to Battlefront. On top of which, they seem to be keeping every horrible thing about MMO combat and expecting it to work.

Are you REALLY sure you want to buy this already? Would you do that to your good memories?

I would prefer to see Co-op on TES6... but beyond that... yes I would buy it. Furthermore you're talking to the guy that doesn't think TOR is ruined.

To be honest, I don't think TOR is ruined either. It could have been a lot better, but it is still a great single player game. Just beware the dark path of other studios making games of famous IPs. Tis a dark and strange world.

Scott, if you turn out to absolutely hate it, well... Don't say we didn't warn you.

TES Online, I mean. Also, just because it has the words: The Elder Scrolls, doesn't mean it's going to be instantly good. If it wasn't for those words alone, you'd probably wouldn't even bother with it. But nooooo, you're going to risk wasting money on a generic shitty mmo that just so happens to have the words "Elder" and "Scrolls" on it.

Why do you do this to yourself?! I guess we'll have to perform inception on Scott and plant the idea in his head that this game will suck.
