News Comments > The Elder Scrolls Online Road Ahead
31. Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Road Ahead May 1, 2014, 18:27 wtf_man
 
Either you love it or hate it.

I love it. Best MMO I've played in a long time.

A system that allows grouped players to see each other even when they’re in different phases

That really needs to be their top priority... everyone that has ever played an MMO is bitching about that, myself included. Besides the bugs... my biggest complaint is this particular issue.

Don't get me wrong... I love solo friendly MMOs... but I also want to play with my friends. The current situation is too forced solo, unless you plan ahead with your friends to start and finish every quest together... which is what I'm currently doing, but it's a pain in the ass.

Max must align himself with a gifted, but peculiar, mechanic named Chumbucket and others...

Chumbucket... uhm... yeah.

When there is a no-origin crack... I might pick it up. Depends on whether it is nearly as good as Origins, or whether it is as bad as DA 2.

News Comments > Legit Elder Scrolls Online Accounts Banned
6. Re: Legit Elder Scrolls Online Accounts Banned Apr 21, 2014, 09:22 wtf_man
 
Turn off Zone chat and Yell in your main chat window. Create a new tab called "Spam" and have everything turned on in that tab.

You will still get says, whispers, and guild chat. When you want to do some trading, click on the spam tab and do your thing... then switch back to the chat tab.

What I don't get is how they can afford to have so many accounts banned. Even with the client already downloaded... you have to buy the game to even logon. You have to provide a CC number that is checked for funds, so it has to be valid... or a time card code which had to be purchased.

They must have made a keygen for both the game and time card codes. THAT is where Zenimax needs to concentrate... so when they ban... these fuckers can't make new accounts without paying.

I quit playing once I started hitting the level 80 zones. It practically turned into an action RPG, where you were killing waves of mobs every 5 feet, which completely turned me off. I have never liked action rpgs, so I've never owned things like Diablo.

If your card is declined for ANY reason then you're unable to play, which is wrong. You already paid for the first 30 days.

This really is a shitty process.

While I agree that it sucks and they should come up with a better way... the reason they demand completely valid CC info is to help thwart the gold sellers, that constantly make accounts with invalid CC's (or ones with purposely insufficient funds).

Not sure why... but this trailer didn't grab me like the previous ones. Probably because there's very little showing of gameplay with Aiden.

One of the most boring, uninspired MMO's i've ever played... and that's saying something!

Huh. That's the way I felt about WoW and several others that followed.

I guess you either love it or hate it.

You can't just walk out of the dungeon at the beginning and pick a direction, explore any cave you wander past, walk to a town and start doing anything you find, and so on.

Huh?!?

Oh. You mean content pocket areas based on levels, instead of all the mobs scaling to your level everywhere, like the single player games.

Yeah... well, that doesn't bother me. You can still explore fairly easy, even in areas that are above your level.

YES... it IS an MMO.
It's supposed to be an MMO.
It still has a ton of props to the single player games, so I don't get where you are saying "it's nothing like the single player games".

I do get that people are pissed that it isn't "just a multi-player Skyrim". Well... that was never their intention.

And I disagree with you about the quests being more open in GW2. The only thing ESO doesn't let you do is BAF in the boss fights of the guilds quest line and main story. There's a ton of solo-ish content that you can do with friends. Then there's the stuff were you are supposed to group.

Not sure what folks are expecting, other than a pure multi-player skyrim sandbox... and since that is not what this is... yeah... I guess this game isn't for them.

I'll have fun, though.

Well, I liked it... a lot. even with the bugs. Played a bit last weekend on the overflow server test... and every single broken quest was fixed. They said they found 3 underlying issues that were breaking the quests and fixed all 3.

Whether it ever goes F2P, I don't know. It shaped up to be more fun than any other MMO I've played in a long long time... and it does play a lot like Skyrim, even if the skill trees / combat mechanics aren't exactly the same.

Folks need to get out of thinking of traditional RPGs. Just because one chooses a class, like a Templar in the beginning... doesn't mean you HAVE to play it like a tank or a healer. You could have a cloth casting templar if you want... and the build would be very viable.

I don't think folks fully understand how much freedom in the builds that you have in the game. With a bit of experimentation... it's easy to find something fun to play, instead being locked down to someone's strict idea of how a class "should be".

They've also fixed all the major complaints... combat isn't as floaty with collision detection and screen shakes, can bypass the starter islands if you feel that content is too "on-rails", they've definitely fixed all the bugged out quests as far as I can see, and they are working on getting phasing issues corrected so you can stay with your group-mates that are on different progression levels of a quest.

Bottom line... you don't play it like an MMO.
You play it like Skyrim with friends, or solo. (PVE)
You play it like DAoC for PvP.

Does it have as much freedom as Skyrim? No. It still is an MMO. For example, you can't go killing town NPC's etc. like you can in the single player game. There are MMO-like restrictions for obvious reasons.

Does it have more freedom than most other MMO's? Absolutely.

Is the questing different than typical MMO Kill x and bring back y?
Yes and No.

Most quests are a chain of events to complete ONE quest, so the presentation feels more like a quest, however underlying tasks may include typical Kill x or retrieve z and go talk to v.

I'd love to see MS get it for Winblows 8 and 8.1. May not be the most evil thing compared to a bank or cable company... but that'd still be funny as hell.

Well... I think these require a warrant / court order, although the article does not say. We're talking FBI here, not the NSA. So, MS charging $50 for someone at MS to dig into databases and accumulate "specific data" to report on, isn't all that out of line... and the warrant / court order should be the limiting factor.

Now, if these don't require a court order... then, yes... this is totally fucked.

Unless Windows 9 reverses course (Gives me full start menu, full Aero Glass back, rounded corner themes, and lets me COMPLETELY turn off Metro and "Bing attached crap apps")... Windows 7 is my last OS from MS. They are completely irrelevant in my home. And though I have a Windows 7 gaming rig, OSX machines, and IOS devices... I'm not locked into any of them. Apple is pissing me off by trying to force their cloud shit on me... I'll dump them and go Linux / Android in a heartbeat, if I have to. I don't buy many IOS Apps and I'll run Mountain Lion until it's dead.

As for if/when we reach a point that games won't run on 7 (if I don't ever get a newer MS OS)... I guess I'll be done with PC gaming too (as far as new purchases). I have a huge collection already, and plenty I haven't played or purchased yet... so I'm not too worried about that happening any time soon.
