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.
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.
