    You're aware you have to give them a 30 day notice before they will cancel your subscription, right?

    Elder Scrolls is subscription-based? LOL

    If you're playing for the singleplayer it's actually not bad though. I imagine PvP'ing with a zerg guild would be ok too.

    Eh? I canceled my sub the other day with no issue. Where's this 30-days notice stuff from?

    I'm not entirely sure where you got that info, but my subscription isn't active anymore. I'm playing on on time I have left.

    Bought it last week, played it for a couple days and enjoyed myself but got bored of it fairly quickly. The game starts off slow, real slow. I suppose in a way you can compare it to any other p2p MMO but I just felt that after 2 or 3 days of questing there was nothing I could do besides that. The stories are well done, but I myself have never been too big of a fan of stories, I usually skip most of them and only the really interesting ones can keep me entertained. The main reason I play a MMORPG is to create your own story, to experience its world, its community and its features. And that is what something that I missed with ESO. The game is really slow, you will definitely spend days leveling up and only doing singleplayer quests. This means that you will see people running around you, but you do not need them in any kind of way.

    It kinda feels you are sheltered off, and the developers themselves weren't really sure what type of game they were making. Looking at the game, it feels like they forgot that it actually was meant as a MMORPG, and even though there are many people wandering around you doing the same quests and areas you just do not feel like to even go in with the crowd. This is the feeling that I have got after 2 or 3 days of playing which was around 5 to 6 hours a day.

    Friends of mine told me to pull through and keep on playing to see more of the game, but I was a little disappointed that most of the content is actually sometime later in the game. You will definitely spend the first week doing quests that probably bore you to death and I suppose you have to stick through to get to the more entertaining parts of the game. Ive watched many twitch streams from the game before I decided to buy it, and I can admit i've seen my fair share of gameplay even though I myself have only played a few days of it. The PvP looks a lot of fun, but just like Guild Wars 2 I can see myself getting really bored of it rather quickly.

    Just like the others above me said, the game honestly doesn't feel worth it as a subscription based game. Back when I played in the alpha and beta sessions, I never really enjoyed myself fully either. I always felt like the game wasn't really part of The Elder Scrolls series, they really tried to make it like one, but it is just lacking most of the elements of it. The stories, well I haven't seen that many interesting stories and quests yet, and that is unfortunate since most Elder Scrolls games are known for having this really well made story that throws you right into the game that intrigues you in a way. And despite the developers focusing on making this a first person type of game, in the end I felt more comfortable with the third person view that also has a really weird angle. And even though third person was always an option in Elder Scrolls games, I always preferred the first person view more. To me, the Elder Scrolls Online series does not feel like an Elder Scrolls game.

    ESO is hands down the most enjoyable mmo I have played yet. Combat is the funnest I have experienced (TERA was my only other action combat mmo I have played). I am level 23 and having a blast. Yes it is quest based but what freakin mmo is not? I have noticed that the ONRPG community has a strong hate biased towards ESO. I am not quite sure why but you hardly find anyone talking positively about this game on these forums. When I am in game, there are TONS of people playing and barely anyone complains about any aspect of the game. All you hear when you ask for opinions like this is hate on the game because the masses who love it are too busy playing .
