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 .
    game is quest based but grinding mobs is faster

    i played the game for about two weeks, sent in a support ticket and got it refunded.

    ESO was like single player game ... once played can't be bothered to play it again. That is why after all the betas i never touched it again.

    It actually is really common not to have trial access at the birth of the game, this usually comes half a year later.

    Did they ever fix the hit boxes, because during the Betas they were quite small?

    Not too sure, but I still find it difficult from time to time to hit the very mob standing right in front of me.

    That's because Skyrim is a modder paradise.

    They need to fix that, it's the main reason why I stopped playing during the Betas, and it seems they still have not fixed it.

    Trying pretty hard to dislike it eh?

    Most new P2P, or B2P games don't offer a trial at launch. The last couple of beta events had plenty of beta keys available to try the game out with anyways.

    There are so many quests... Gahhhh. So many boring quests. Combat does get more fun past level 15, IMO. And it's more fun to just farm mobs than to run around doing quests.
    But worst thing is the lack of proper auction house.

    lol okay. So out of the many things you claim to dislike about the game you settle on "Doesn't have a free trial at launch". If you are going to complain about a game at least have a legitimate complaint.

    In the 7 days play time I have I could write pages and pages of hilarious and awesome moments that I have had with my guild, things that I haven't done or experienced in MMOs since the days of when i played EQ, UO, and DAoC.

    There are bugs and issues, but so has every MMO I have played, and every game for that matter, if you can't handle the bugs, then wait a few months for them all to be ironed out.

    I didn't like the game at the start of beta, and since release I am glad I have purchased it, well worth the money spent.

    You can make ANY game fun with a group of people, take a step back from your community fun and analyze the game as it is.

    Analyze the graphics? the musical scores? the challenging veteran rank dungeons? the large scale pvp? the in depth crafting system?

    The more I analyze it, the more I like what I see.

    I have never kept my in game volume on. One of the first things i do after about an hour of game time would be shutting off the in game sound, but the games musical scores, ambient sound effects, and the majority of the voice acting have been fabulous.

    I have never played an MMORPG that looks as great as ESO does, the Alaki'r Desert is gorgeous especially.

    The veteran rank dungeons have added quite a bit of challenge to my guilds usual dungeon runs, and actually requires us to co ordinate, and switch abilities between fights to prepare for each battle.

    The large scale pvp has also been a blast, I have enjoyed it a lot more than GW2s WvW, while it isn't better than DaOCs RvR, it has only just come out, and there is a lot of room for growth, but they have a very solid foundation. My favorite thing to do in pvp are the dungeons, and quests, its a lot of fun to go exploring only to come across another group of players to fight. Its some of the most exciting moments I have had in an MMO in over a decade.

    The crafting system alone provides me with hours of entertainment. Finding motifs, buying and selling equipment I have made in many different styles. Alchemy is fun to experiment with different components to find out what kind of potions I can make.

    Thats all just the tip of the ice burg of what I have experienced in game, and I can't wait to log on and play some more.


    If everyone said that Wonder Woman was ugly, would you think she was ugly too?

    The game is niche, and the people such as myself really enjoy the game, and others really hate it, go figure.

    Yeah, when you got into a game with high hopes. You get shot down, unless the game is completely different from others(Though all will follow the same grind rule) or the game incorporates things you didn't expect it too.

    E.g. No one went into league expecting it to be great, or addicting for that matter. Things like FFXIV as well, you went into thinking it'd be ok at best (Which it is to a degree), but it turned out to be a very solid MMO.

    Any who, AAA's sell their game too hard and it flops at that point. P2P market needs to be sold and advertised properly, this whole "Hype the fack out of the game for it to gain publicity" is serving the games no justice.

    But I digress. ESO is mediocre, I've played it for 30 mins on a lvl 5 character (Yesterday, wanted to give it a fair chance). I didn't enjoy it, Maybe because I was spoiled from playing a grouping game which promoted mob grinding. But Questing is boring. Really boring... But then again, I'm not fond of those type of games.
