    Spent about an hour playing. Definitely still alot of work to do. But seems to have potential as a good questing game.

    That being said I'm curious how well it's going to work as an mmo.. or if it'll be like swtor

    Got an invite too.
    Is it worth it? I mean, how are the controls and UI? Is it shite and pain in the ass or not? I really like the graphics, and have special love for MMORPGs, but if it's some simplified console-like piece of shit, I'm out.

    Rockin' :) this will be my third time in, 1st was a stress, second was a weekend event like this one. they made some serious improvements between the stress and last time, but I expect we'll still see plenty of bugs, places to fall thru and get stuck, etc, etc, etc. Last time, I had a weekend out with my family planned, which screwed my entire beta time, which also occurred this time lol, but only on Saturday. so, at least I'll get Sat night and some Sunday time :) Leveling is definitely harder than WoW was (back "in the day"). Not a great deal of encouragement to group early, but I wasn't able to get enough time last time to really progress too far, so I'm hopeful to see a bit more this time out. My recommendation is to start the download NOW, btw. I started my client and came back a while later to 20Gb left to download. Saw several whiners last time out complaining they hadn't thought to download beforehand, and missed out on a night's worth of gaming.

    I was worried it was going to kill the entire series but after watching some gameplay footage I am sure it won't be a threat to the single player games, no offense guys.

    I'll be playing to see if it's gotten better. Not in terms of bugs but in actual gameplay. The second playtest just wasn't fun... But it is still a beta, so maybe it got better?

    I'm afraid I had just that feedback to them last time.

    I beta tested WoW, back when hunters couldn't use guns, and had no talent tree. I remember my first "Holy CRAP!!" moment to this day, seeing the walking tree guardians not too far from the NightElf noob village. I haven't had one of those moments in this one yet.... Maybe it's because the 1st test I was in was the Stress test, so it was "hurry, group up, and see what breaks!!". I dunno, but I've got all the games except Daggerfall (and have that in the Legendary I stole on amazon for $25), and I had really high hopes for this one... just been disappointed so far....

    I got another invite as well, I didn't have time to play much last time, I always find it hard to dive in for a weekend unless it's something that doesn't take much time, like some rounds of Battlefield. But being forced to intake a decent amount of an MMO in just a few days always makes it hard for me to play it.

    Yeah it seems if anything the pc is being used to beta test the console version, cant see many pc gamers really hopping on board with something like ESO when they can just spend hours a day modding skyrim or playing better games.
