I played last beta and it hardly taxed my laptop at all and was VERY smooth performance. Graphics are just fine also. Sorry the water doesn't splash out of your screen to hit your face.

    The people complaining appear to only have tried this game because it was Elder scrolls and have not really played an mmo before. If they have played an mmo they would realize making Skyrim online just isn't feasible, thus they wouldn't be dissapointed. It is foolish to even expect that.

    But unfortunately these people are going to ruin the game by scaring everyone away from it . I can't wait for the next beta though!
    People are disappointed that they put out another cookie cutter MMO. They never said it was going to be Skyrim online? I can't say whether that's true or not, but I will ask, did they ever specifically say it WAS NOT going to be basically "Skyrim Online"? If so, it's pretty fair for people to expect "Skyrim Online", which would be the same as saying THE ELDER SCROLLS ONLINE (because all TES games had the same model), because it's the ****ing title of the game.

    People aren't complaining because they've never played an MMO before. They're complaining because they've played many MMO's before, and this is just a carbon copy of one/all of those.

    I hope this game tanks

    Lol wtf... How selfish and asshatty of you. You hope it tanks!? You do know people out there enjoy and can't wait to play right? If this tanks there will NOT be another elder scrolls mmo for a very very very long time if ever. Screw you, if you don't like it don't play it, don't hope it gets taken away from those that do. Just because a game is "bad" your mindset should NEVER be that it fails and is shut down because YOU are not paying it for, or spending time in it so what say do you actually deserve? There are people who enjoy it so let them!

    it's not that we hope it's going to tank, it's that we /know/ it will.

    Pretty much .-.

    I was once like you, Bawnawgwa, then i took a horrible MMO which was over-hyped and didn't reflect its IP nearly as well as it should have to the knee @.@;

    I just don't understand how some of you recommend paying for FF:ARR (other thread), while ESO beats it on so many levels.
    ESO is a good MMO (just like FF:ARR) - nothing ground breaking but very, very solid to say the least.

    No, I specifically said "I hope it tanks". He was responding to me.

    @ The guy who was complaining I said I hope it tanks, I'll elaborate: I hope it tanks so that Bethesda learns from it, and produces a game worth playing. I've watched the videos, and read a lot of articles. It looks and sounds like an absolute piece of shit.

    And you say I should care about what other people want? Can you tell me why exactly?

    Because you look at their SINGLE PLAYER games and see how much potential the company has when it comes to making ground breaking games. Then you play/watch videos of the turd of an MMO they released and it pisses you off.

    And I wouldn't say it's better than FF at all.

    zenimax created the game, not bethesda though.
    if bethesda created it, you wouldn't even be able to play it because of all the bugs.

    ZeniMax Media owns Bethesda Game Studios, along side id and a few others....

    I've actually been on a tour of both ZeniMax's HQ & Bethesda's HQ. (Not that weird as I live in Maryland & Rockville is just a bus ride away.) They were both public tours hosted as a event or something, but still an awesome experience.

    So we're judging MMOs based off of single player games now?
