Got a beta code, 30GB download... FS! Screw my 3.5mb connection.

 

Interesting.. the US version is only 21gb. Only..

 

This will be the MMO to end all other MMOs if they don't screw this up. They need to do extremely well in beta and keep the content coming. I tried the previous beta and it was nice. When it goes live my focus will be the crafting system if it is good and not watered down. Not too hard like Aion's where you have to proc an item 4 times in a row to get something good but not worthless like crafting is in Rift.

 
What makes you say that? Just about everything I've heard about the game is that it's disappointing in most ways that count.
 
The thing I'm most interested in seeing is how their mega server and RvR are gonna work. Beyond that the aesthetic of the game and the game play all looks pretty uninspired.
 
But like I said earlier..maybe I'll be surprised and actually like it. I'll probably be playing the beta this weekend.

Same here and I'm in the UK. 

 

All of my friends that completed the eligibility process for beta consideration have been given these keys so it must be everyone who was eligible is getting one! Really starting to feel like it might be 5 mins online then 2 hours of servers crashing then trying to login and the login servers going down and blah blah. Oh well :p

A friend of mine tried out the last beta and I'm pretty sure that's exactly what happened. They couldn't get on to play it. I had a key for the last beta too so I was glad I didn't bother downloading it after hearing that.

Played a few days of the beta. Its a well done mmorpg. Nothing new but really solid. But it's not that great.

Compared to the last final fantasy online last year what ever number it was, it kinda sucks and is bland. It pales in every way.

Then again, FFXIV:AAR kind of sucks donkey. I hope that doesn't mean TESO sucks even more.

My new computer is here and all set up, just started downloading there and if it stays at 1Mbps the whole time I should have it in about 7 hours :D

Didn't really have time to play much last Beta, hoping I can really get a feel for it this one, or I'll end up focusing on GW2

when i originally downloaded the game a few months ago it only took about 3 hours to download the near 30Gb of data at the time. I see the client size is actually smaller now. Hopefully this time around the game will be much better but it was a horrible experience before.

Combat sucks.

Animations suck.

Player models suck.

UI sucks.

No indication of what to do for quests.

Player progression is bland.

 

How will this end all other MMOs? It's no where the feeling of what makes the Elder Scrolls game fun.

To me this game looks extremely bland as far as the armor design and character designs go. The game play also looked uninteresting as well. I think I will avoid it for the first 2 or 3 months to see how it goes.

 

I feel like the game will sell really well though because people are going to expect it to be Skyrim but online. And I also feel like it will die really fast because people will realize it's in fact not skyrim.

 

I may be surprised though.

If you enjoyed Skyrim, you'll probably love this one even more.

To many if not most Elder Scrolls fans, as long as it's as close as possible to Skyrim but with other real people they will be extremely happy, because that's all we really want, if you go in thinking WoW killer or something like that, then yest it will be completely disappointing

Why do you say that? This game looks nothing like Skyrim. Unless you are being sarcastic?

But the thing is what makes Skyrim such an amazing game with so much longevity and replayability is that it can be modded. You can't mod an mmo, not like you can with Skyrim with user created content adding new weapons, armor, areas, quests, and all that goodness.
 
I think people will buy this expecting Skyrim 2.0 and be severely disappointed when they don't get it.

I see this as a merger of all the EOS worlds, combined with the gameplay of Skyrim, only vastly enhanced.  I may be wrong though but that's the impression I get from this game.

Combat sucks. Combat is going to be a pretty subjective thing in an MMO. I find it more than adequate as it is, especially for a beta.

Animations suck. You mean like in most Elder Scrolls games? Unless you mod it. Either way, animations are fine, not sure why you think they suck.

Player models suck. Again, Elder Scrolls games aren't quite known for amazing graphics let alone player models - unless modded again. Again, I find them fine.

UI sucks. Totally disagree with you on this one. The UI is WAY improved in ESO. It's an actual, functional UI unlike the crapfests we've gotten lately in the other games.

No indication of what to do for quests. Not sure what game you've been playing but my maps show where to go and the quest log says quite clearly what to do.

Player progression is bland. I will agree with you on this one, but only because I've only been able to play to a fairly low level and haven't been able to use other weapons etc.

 

How will this end all other MMOs? It's no where the feeling of what makes the Elder Scrolls game fun. The game is literally a MMO version of an Elder Scrolls single player game. They've gone out of their way to make it feel like a single player game to begin with, with the MMO trappings as an added bonus for those who want it.

 

 

It looks nothing like Skyrim.  :s

 

This is true. It looks way better than Skyrim. Mainly because they aren't using the 10 billion year old Gamebryo engine anymore for ESO. Maxed out, the game looks stunning to me.

Well what were you referring to then? Art style wise or environmentally?

I think he meant that in general ESO doesn't look to be the same as Skyrim, not refering to the visuals :p

Signed up but I don't know how much I'll care.  I'm sure it'll be pretty, but I'm not sold on monthly payments anymore.

Will this game be "pay to play" or "free to play"?
