"Quar..naked?"

I played the beta weekends.

Fantastic game, as are all The Elder Scrolls.


I'm not going to play it though. It's more expensive per month than World of Warcraft, which is idiotic and I really missed the 'MMO' aspect. So for me it's just The Elder Scrolls 6, which isn't worth paying $15 a month for on top of an already steep purchase price. Shame really cause it really looked and played amazing. The combat system and models are epic.

A true Nord doesn't do chores though. :P

I'm playing! Nightblade as well, though I'm a woodelf

I was thinking of putting a topic on here to see if we had enough people for an E guild, but I'm not sure we would :(

I would, but I agree on monthly fee as far as MMOs go. I will stick to my FF online.

ESO Utilizes what they're calling a 'MegaServer'. Basically what that means is there are no servers, just one big one that is broken off into separate instances for a certain number of people. If you party with (say) a friend, and you can't see them, they're on a different instance shard. All you have to do is do a quick menu to travel to them.

TL;DR: They have one big server.

I play an Argonian Dragonknight. Fun times.

Ye but that I'd be playing when the US is asleep and vice versa.

Besides I still stand by what I said. I don't see the $15 a month justified. Perhaps when work slows down a bit I might buy the game and get the free month and see if I change my mind.

I was on the beta.  I wasn't impressed.  It's nothing that WoW didn't introduce so many years ago.  It doesn't even have anything that really stands out from most MMOs outside of the setting.

I hope you guys enjoy it, but I'm out.

If you do tell me, I'll gladly join up ^^

I have to admit I've been tempted to start an LGBT guild, though I don't know how well it would go down/if I have the balls to actually start a guild xD

Look for the guild "Elliquiy Tamriel Branch". Callie and I are already chilling. And, as we are all E members, we are LGBT friendly. I've never had a problem with you fine folks. :D

No MMO, really has sadly.  And I seriously doubt aside from setting, due to nature of MMOs, there really can be.  The technical demands for supporting the mass of players, while still providing the enjoyable level of graphical experience that today's gamers demand, is hard to fulfill.

And to be honest, I really wish that Bethesda, would have stuck with continuing to develop the Elder Scrolls series as a single player RPG.  I still have several mods for both Oblivion and Skyrim both, that make either game that can make the game a new experience every time.  Or even just trying to play the game through a different way, makes for different challenges.

Limitless, no?  But I still find that Bethesda's strength over the years to be in their single player series.  And now they want to enter into the MMO arena?

While I can't say the Elder Scrolls Online is necessarily just a complete failure, it also isn't something that I find worth my investment into either.  I was disappointed enough that I cancelled my pre-order of the Collector's Edition copy.

Yep, you can join 5 guilds, but it's across your account, so if you join as one toon you join as all of them.

Since guilds are cross-faction, a guild's alignment only effects PvP. We fight for the Dominion, but we've got Pact and Dominion members right now.

I won't be on for a few days, due to work and whatnot, but if you want an invitation, send me a mail, and I'll get right to you.
