A few minutes ago I read the list of 'features' fromm This List of Leaked Details and my heart fell. It's pretty much a generic MMO so far as gameplay goes. They gain generic MMO users that are interested in the lore and world of Tamriel, and at the same time alienate a lot of TES fans who like the way the single player games.

Why doesn't it occur to them to make the gameplay similar to the single player games? Making it appeal to 'traditional MMO' players means that it's not even going to try to carve out a gameplay niche. I DISLIKE the hotbar type systems and really want to try an MMO that doesn't use it, AND is good.

In other words, this MMO is nothing I want to pay money for and even if/when it's F2P I'd only try it out half-heartedly. Shame, because this was the first MMO I was really interested in.

Well on the surface it will be TES, what with Bethesda teaching the other 250 how to keep the game as buggy as possible.
Hell we might even get mediocre voice acting!
Here's to hoping!

"
If you knew even one bit about MMO's you would know in order to play with a mass amount of people then you will need to sacrifice graphics."

This isn't true at all, its just the devs tend to tone down the graphics to get a larger player base (more people can play it).

ever hear of everquest 2? Its graphics were pretty much state of the art on release which drove more EQ fans to go play WoW cause they knew their comps could handle it

I personally would rather have a multiplayer *console* version of elder scrolls. Up to 4 players. Thats all I was hoping for...

If this really gets big then the only thing they will really succeed in doing is creating a slightly better version of WoW. Which to most elder scrolls fans really isnt saying much.

Dont get me wrong, ill try it. But its not what i was hoping for.

no console version? I am even more disappointed than when they didn't make a console version of Star Wars Old Republic Can't justify the cost of upgrading my PC for gaming at this point in my life.

I am unimpressed... a bit too "generic MMO" if you ask me.

Indeed.. They could have tried to make a good version of Darkfall in the ES world.. Instead of WoW in star wa... Elder Scrolls..

Agh, I hate those skill bars. They make the action difficult to see, and they're always very ugly.

I hope it isn't one of those click and go, click and attack MMOs. Surely they'll let you at least take control of your own character from their perspective....

I probably won't want to try it if it is like the above type games.

But actually, I might try it anyway. I'm a big geek for ES lore, and they let you visit a lot of the cities you couldn't visit in older games. (Or it had generic randomly generated detail)

Why aren't imperials available? Let me guess,they'll be added into a future expansion?

This still looks like it could be hit-or-miss if you ask me. It could be amazing,but it could also totally suck.

well, despite all the negativity I'm really excited. It's been a long time since I played WoW, and even though I really enjoyed it I haven't been able to get back into the game. Elder Scrolls is my favorite series, game world, lore, everything. So even if it is just WoW in Tamriel I will play and thoroughly enjoy the game. Excited to see all the other provinces that haven't been used in a long time. I'll be a day one player, bugs and all.

The only thing I'm looking forward to is Elsweyr. It is by far the most interesting region according to the lore.

Imperials would come from the PVP zone, so that might be why they're not included.

Nope, seems they are heavily integrated into the story line according to the info from IGN.

quote IGN
The fourth, non-playable alliance / faction will be the antagonist of The Elder Scrolls Online. Imperials work with the noble Tharn Family to bring Tamriel back under Imperial Rule. Weakened from constant wars in Cyrodiil, these two form a pact with Mannimarco, King of Worms, who promises to reanimated the fallen soldiers to keep fighting for control.

Unbeknownst to the Imperials and Tharn Family, Mannimarco is really working with the Daedric Prince Molag Bal to rule over Tamriel themselves.

Ha! What a joke! This is NOT the game people were expecting when an Elder Scrolls MMO was announced.
