News Comments > Dupe Bug Causes ESO Bank Closures
2. Re: Dupe Bug Causes ESO Bank Closures Apr 18, 2014, 18:59 Frijoles
 
Train wreck of a game. This dupe has been known since beta. If this was their idea of a quick fix, I fear all the other broken quests won't be fixed until Fall. Supposedly the bank slot bug was fixed (the bank would eat your items). Shall we take bets on whether it was really fixed?

Ugg.. I'm still playing though. Think I'll cancel when the free month is up and let it cook another six months.

I really enjoy this game (and the previous one). The AI kinda sucks, and the other mages aren't much of a threat. But it's fun taking over the different landscapes one by one. Crushing them beneath my army of 3 well-trained units (and quick save).

Sounds StarCraft-y. Wonder if it's the next expansion.

This game is FUN! It's only in alpha, so I can't wait to see what gets added and how much more fun it becomes.

Are the monsters an actual threat? One thing I hate about vanilla Minecraft is that you can defeat the AI by digging a hole in the ground. A lot of survival games are very similar. After X hours (and in cases like Minecraft, minutes), there's just no challenge because the mobs suck. Or rather, surviving the environment is the challenge. The mobs are just an annoyance.

Do you not know that every mob is shared? See a boss, or just anyone fighting anything, and join in... You don't hurt the other person's xp/loot, and you get credit...

Yep, but I have a problem standing around with 15 other people waiting to gang-bang the mob. Or in the case of finishing a dunegon (non-instanced), you have to stand there for a few minutes waiting for the end-boss to spawn, then hope you get a hit on him in the half second he lives. Otherwise you get to wait again. Or not get the achievement for the dungeon.

Honestly if that were the only problem with ESO, that'd be fine. Things like that will die down in a week. But the bugs. My god. They're really competing with traditional TES games. At least with TES, the community can fix things. Not so here.

I'm enjoying the game, but the devs seem to have never played an MMO before. They're making some really silly mistakes. For example, kicking someone from your dungeon run will remove them from your party but leave them in the dungeon. Just about everything in the world is first-come first-serve, so you end up waiting around to get a hit on a boss or click that one button. And whomever designed the bank/inventory needs a god damned boot to the head.

I know absolutely nothing about the game qua MMORPG. I am a sorcerer, can they lockpick or is it tied to the thief class?

Anybody can pick a lock if they have the lockpicks. Just remember to let go of the pick when it starts to jiggle. That means you're at the sweet spot. I was an idiot and thought I was supposed to push past that, so I broke many many lockpicks.

I've been hesitant to use Kickstarter due to previous games turning out to be really shitty. But I can't resist this one. It looks really fun.

I'm enjoying it and glad I got in early before the commoners. But there are a bunch of bugs still. Bunch of quests couldn't be completed until a day or two ago. Still random disconnects and such. There was also a lovely bug where you would randomly log in to some random person's account. I think that one was fixed pretty quickly though.

Still, I'm enjoying it. The crafting is different. And leveling up feels good.

Can anyone confirm the built in Thief April fools? Supposedly exiting a level reloads the previous one, making it impossible to proceed through the game. The only way around it is changing your system clock.

Not seeing any problems, but it's hard to test. I don't have any save games near the end of a level. I can move around the city / windows without issue. I was also able to leave a level. Can't say for certain unless I play through one, though.

Game industry infects games with DRM, takes away game ownership. Bout time the industry got a taste of its own medicine.

Yeah, fuck charities. They should go get a real job and not be poor/sick.

Looks like it'll definitely be worth the $9.99 or less I pay for it when it finally goes on sale, gg Uplay.

Do we know if it's using UPlay? There was a thread on Reddit today saying it uses Steamworks. Hopefully they can manage with just one DRM.

Good on Notch for sticking to his values.

What's sad is that MinecRift has been a working Minecraft mod for the DK1 for almost a year, and it works really well. In all that time, Notch hasn't even bothered to try it. It's easy to cancel support for a product when you have no interest in supporting it in the first place.

He's now a 21 year old billionaire. (well, not quite, but likely very, very close.) I can't hate him too much for that.

I'd do the same thing for that much money. Maybe even buy Blues just to piss you all off.

Awesome changes coming; I can't wait. Although I saw that his dye color / transmutation had a transmutation cost (it was 0). I wonder if we're going to have to have tokens to use it. That would suck. The good thing about WoW's transmutation interface is that's it's pretty damn cheap to use.

I love Oculus and VR and I ordered the 2nd dev kit immediately after I got the email about it (since I was a kickstarter). But I despise Facebook.

Same here. I haven't cancelled DK2 yet, but I'm tempted. As much as I want VR, I don't want to give Facebook any money. Ever. I really wish Valve would begin work on a consumer version.

Like getting kicked in the balls. Fuck. This. Tons of people are cancelling their orders for DK2. Hopefully some other VR solution steps in.

Fuck you, Facebook.
