Not understanding why you guys are so dead set against the game. I get that you many don’t want to play it. But forming opinions about a beta that does not represent the final product is kind of strange to me. How can you guys claim to like Skyrim and not like this? What is not fun about exploring Tamriel? The entire island!

I don't have anything against the game, but most of the complaints are exactly because that's not what the game is. 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. It's really nothing like the single player games, and although it's a bit more open than a progressive MMO quest line it's still not as open as a Guild Wars 2's, either. It's not a big multiplayer Elder Scrolls game, it's an MMO set in the universe; that's a big enough difference for a lot of people to not like the direction it went.

As for forming opinions on beta releases, I've beta tested every MMO I've been interested in since UO came out and not one of them has been different from its last beta event to the actual release. Stress tests may as well be a demo.
