Will it Suck?

Post  Vulgruff on Wed Apr 10, 2013 4:01 pm

I don't think so. It sounds like they are putting in some true TES features, like they announced they have 1st person. Opinions?

It has potential. I will judge it when I see it.

They can implement good features but can they implement it well?

And thanks for moving the off topic discussion away from the OOC section.

I've already said this in the Rise of the Dragonguard OOC thread, but I might as well say it here too. I think that the game by itself is going to be alright, but I doubt it that it will be a true Elder Scrolls.

Didn't someone say it already exists outside of TES universe because of dimension wankery pulled off by Molag Bal? Hence the infinite re-spawns?

In answer to the original question:

  • If you love WoW and WoW clones, no. The game will probably be fucking awesome compared to most other MMOs.
  • If you love the Elder Scrolls and what Todd Howard and co. have crafted over the past 19 years (yes, TES is 19 years old...) then yes. It will blow chunks so hard you'll wonder how much you had to drink the night before and just how stanky her pussy really was.


It boils down to this, the Elder Scrolls is a very unique game franchise that has so far excelled at creating the perfect single player experience. Skyrim, even with all its flaws, is the culmination of that. To attempt to transfer that to an MMO is destined to fail, and I'm sorry to hear it. I think Zenimax is committing the ultimate act of corporate greed by going over Bethesda's head to give to the players what they think will make money. And it wouldn't have happened if Bethesda has just implemented a more simple multiplayer option, perhaps like Fable or Grand Theft Auto. I would much prefer being able to travel in Skyrim with Ilfyri or Kurtaagh, or even a few of you mooks, than to have to be in a world full of idjits with names like AssSlayer420. As an aside, if I do purchase a subscription to the game, that will be my name. Very Happy

I think your wrong on that. I've been following the game for awhile and I don't think its going to be a WoW clone. It has first person and stuff, I'm more worried about the Story honestly. To avoid the AssSlayer420s of the world I'll just go onto a role-playing server Very Happy.

First, you must have never played WoW - it has first person. Second, you must not have followed it very much - they're priding themselves on only having one server.

Not good first person, Its the Mega-server. It has different "instances" of the server so you can chose to play with only people who Roleplay.

As an IT Guy* I cannot see how it's only 1 server. Its got to be multiple boxes, for fail over and redundancy.
If they are not running with this, it is only a matter of time til something breaks.
Especially with multiple server hits, combined with long duration connections.

If they have the back ups and your hardware is a BEAST from Oblivion, then you can get away with one box.

Otherwise, your fucking up.

It's okay - not a patch on TES standalone games but it's enjoyable. Well...it is once you put yourself in offline mode so you don't get spammed to Sovngarde and back.
