    It's quite likely that they would use a game engine that is more suited for an MMO than their current one.

    That being said, If they make it cartoony like Wow I will troll the Bethsoft forum with hate until they ban me forever.

    My problem with MMOs is the "Holy Trinity" of healer, tank and damage dealer. Not everyone wants to join a guild either.

    For me the best MMO right now is Star Wars. Followed by LOTR On Line, Conan and then WOW. Played all of them, currently playing none due to no free time...
    If they release ESO, they better not making it as boring as the single player series...

    A large part of the game is the mods, so I wonder if Bethesda are somehow going to allow certain types of mods into the game or just leave it vanilla.

    If this game is using the gamebryo engine, it will fail. That engine has problems with one player.
    Also worrying is that Bethesda is making this game. They have excellent ideas, and a rich game world and lore. But they put out extremely buggy games.

    Buggy MMOs don't last long. If a game is really buggy, they bleed off subs like crazy and then go on life support.

    Warhammer Online had this happen. Rich IP/lore, very buggy game that basically died in the first 3 months of its existance.

    The same thing is happening with the new Star Wars MMO. Extremely buggy launch, massive bleed-off of subs, and now their subscriber base is going to have a massive die-off at the 6-month sub renewal mark.

    World of Warcraft was extremely buggy when released.

    People want current wow like performance out of a brand new game. It takes a while to get all the bugs out.

    regardless of weather or not gambryo is used from an elder scrolls game i seriously doubt the game will be flawless. im sure it will have bugs but i honestly think WoW isnt that great graphically. If anything is complained about performance wise it will be transparent. I think bad engine optimization will really be the fault of people attempting to play a bethesda game on a mobile radeon 4200. or some other entry level hardware combo that otherwise plays WoW and similar games decently enough.

    Like I keep saying a lot of times BethSoft has an amazing creative team and a terrible technical team...

    This. This. And This.

    Good luck, that's what they said about ToR.


    This is being made by a company that specializes in making MMOs, not the TES we all know and love. This will fail as a TES game.

    WoW doesn't look great, it's true. The point I was trying to make is that people are extremely impatient when it comes to MMO's. There's a break in period of about a year before a new MMO will perform as it really should, especially when the market is saturated with people trying to play the game on extremely obsolete hardware.

    When WoW launched it was a horrendous mess. You were lucky if any given server was online for more than 2 hours, and you were also lucky if the client didn't crash in regular intervals.

    I secretly hope TESO succeeds. I love the games and I would definitely play an MMO version of it, but they need to bring something to the table that's unique. I don't quite know if the first person gamebryo style would fit in an MMO, but I'd be willing to give it a shot.

    I seriously hope the game will be skill based. Ultima Online was awesome and you could be pretty much anything you wanted to be, all you had to do was use your skills. No levels. Pretty sick.

    Really?? that awesome!! I hate the leveling system in those MMORPG games nowadays, its like requiring you to have lots of friends and spend lots of time just to enjoy the game

    I want to enjoy as soon as possible :laugh:

    Yeah, UO had the best leveling system. It just took forever unless you were macroing. I think you could max something like 7 skills and raise a few others to good enough levels for some funtionality.

    I generally played a spellsword, running by and hitting crap with my sword and then casting some fireballs and stuff. Good times.

    More competition in MMO world is good thing. As WoW is goin down(at least for me) and as I play SWTOR now and can tell you that it is much more balanced than WoW in terms of style of play. Not many people just wanna grind and level up just to hit max and go grind some other thing. SWTOR is massively story oriented which was nice for a change from the all other MMOs. Also I think if you are sick of all MMO cliches - check Guild Wars 2 - it has really interesting features. I am pretty sure to check it out on release. So I hope TESO got to all the glory of the games made with that name so we can have really nice to play MMO - not some content change every few months so someone has reason to play.
