    Default ESO announces its first content patch

    ESO is introducing its first Adventure Zone known as Craglorn.

    I've got to admit... After playing the beta I didn't think I'd ever play this game again, but after seeing some people's thoughts about it I decided I would give it a second chance and invest some more time. Long story short, I'm REALLY glad that I did. Like a lot of people have said, it's no Skyrim, but as an MMO it does what it does very well and rewards you. Aside from a few bugs here and there I'm having a blast now. $60 well spent.

    Its not trying to be Skyrim. when ES:6 comes out you can ***** about it not being like Skyrim. If youre going to dislike something, dislike it for what it is and not what it isnt.


    ESO is its own beast that is very much worth your time and money.

    Instead of trying to come out with new amazing endgame grinding crap they should focus on things like their launcher not even working half the time >_>

    It's Meh compared to every other action MMO
    Combat is terrible, even for an elder scrolls game where bad combat is expected
    Great for exploring though, I'm liking the world. Wish it had a more mystical feel to it but it makes for a nice low fantasy setting.

    I would like to play it, but it was either that or have my cat's balls chopped off so he would stop pissing on my pillow.
    Maybe next time...

    Putting money on D3 over this game? lol goes to show you how bad it is... lol. it was obvious from the get go that it was gonna crash n burn :| too many people hyped it up. sigh. never like the game series anyways. garbage.

    In Quake3 it's "Excellent", in Counter-Strike it's "Kicked by console"

    Fantastic game. Definitely a breath of fresh air. It is unfortunate people feel the need to trash it without giving it a fair shot. And don't pretend you did either! We all know you played one of the first betas and made your decision. If you tried betas towards release you would have been hooked.

    HAHAHAHAHA!! u act as if the last beta made the game do a 180 and it's some magical perfect game that is worth a monthly sub! the game is very bland and does nothing special. its a mmo with the elder scrolls name tacked on so people would play it. if this game didn't have the elder scrolls name on it then everyone would just see it as a generic fantasy mmo like it is. i don't feel bad for all the people paying that monthly sub cause they lost a lot of money when game goes b2p in a year(if that long)

    I personally dont care much for the Elder Scrolls franchise so my liking ESO has nothing to do with being a fanboy.

    I like questing: ESOs questing is abundant and solid.

    I like building my character how I want: ESO gives me full control over how I want to play and doesnt lock me into anything except my initial class choice.

    Exploring is fun: ESO rewards exploring with free skill points and exp.

    Endgame: ESO literally has something for everyone here.

    Not seeing a generic fantasy mmo here...

    wait how is any of that special? i have seen live streams and reviews and everyone said the quests are very generic(go fetch this, get me X of this, or go kill this guy) u can't say end game as something for everyone as u are one person. there are still gonna be people who say the end game is shit and doesn't have enough. oh good u payed $60/$15(usd mind you) to run around and "explore?" money well spent my friend! But alas i digress. nothing i say will change u guys from spending ur money monthly on this game. so no point in saying anything else. oh 6 mil people bought the game? thats fine seeing as the first month is free. that "sub" number is going to drop right after that free month. keep defending this game with your life though. you are bound to change someone's mind and make them waste their money too. right? right...?

    And you're going by what other people said? Haha, I did same thing after I played the beta and even made a thread saying that it didn't have much of a future. The quests really aren't generic. There's a handful here and there that are something like that, but they're usually part of a larger quest chain. Those type of quests are at a minimum. Some people like spending 15 bucks a month and running around and "exploring". Oh and Zenimax did that part right too, exploring is one of this games best features. Of course the sub month is going to drop after the first month. You don't have to be a genius to figure that one out. This game is NOT for everyone, which is cool, but someone who sits and trash talks the game is not. This game has 20 years+ worth of lore in it and it does a great job of putting it in one game. That being said, the game isn't perfect, far from it. They still have some work to do, but besides a few bothers I'm having a good time. Your ignorance is noted and I'm not seeing what you're gaining from bashing this game. You're just another one of "those guys" that is complaining mostly because of the subscription fee. 15 bucks a month is 3 days I can make my own lunch instead of eating out when I go to work.

    At the end of the day "wasting money" is a matter of opinion. I wont miss that 15$ when its gone and ill get a month of playing a game I personally enjoy. You cant decide for me that its a waste of money.

    I dont like Diablo 3....its nothing like skyrim what was blizzard thinking... I dont like WoW becouse its not skyrim

    its like the only complaint about ESO I see 90% of the time aside from it being Generic
    get with the times your not gonna get anything refreshing or new or original its all been done till somthing like Virtual reality comes out I highly doubt your gonna see anything remotely "refreshing" or new.... but sadly people are to blind and love to argue about everything and anything about any MMO's that come out nowa days...

    i actually impulse bought the game and played it for about a full week.
    in short, a lot of the quests are bugged and not worth doing, the dialogue is shitty and the voice actors are extremely dull (the voice actor for the prophet even changes after a point )

    the combat system is highly flawed and i personally would've preferred a polished tab-target system similar to wow/archeage, but they just HAD to try and re-create skyrim combat and make it worse (implying skyrim combat is anything to write home about lol)

    skills are lacking, and pretty much every class will run the same build while leveling because there is no point not to aoe grind to get to 50 in 24 hours.

    end-game? what end-game? more aoe grinding to get to vr10 to do some laughably bad raids because the combat system is so awful.
    only good thing about ESO is cyrodiil, but like gw2, it won't keep the game alive.

    There is a HUGE point not to grind to 50. It is your own fault if you want to rush and choose most AoE build out there. I am personally going full support on a Dragon knight. It will be slow going for me but i'll get to 50 when I do and with the skills I want! Again, that is COMPLETELY your fault.

    Combat is probably the most enjoyable combat I have experienced in an mmo. I will pop an armor boost skill, then hurl a rock ball at oponents knocking them down while shooting them with my staff, They will get and get too close in which I will snare them and quick roll away and continue shooting them down :P. oodles of epic ))

    If you got to endgame in a week you should go outside more. If not, you can't say anything about endgame lol. You were not there.... And raids will not be laughably bad, because combat is great.

    Candyholic, you sound kind of like a troll. Everything you said was your opinion and you are definitely in a minority when it comes to people who have ACTUALLY played the game.

    Maybe they blew too much of their budget on Steve Blum?

    Also apparently people aren't allowed to speak negative opinions in this thread

    Maybe because I tried this game for... An hour if so much. I also started at the mid point because I was on a friends character.
    But the game just was a huge Meh fest, When he told me "Dude it's all about the quest and soloing. There's no need to kill that mob"
    I was so disappointed... The game is pretty bland, I expect the hype to die down eventually.

    Place your bets on when ESO will switch to F2P ;p

    I'd say about a year or two.
