That Saxon Hawke has the inscription "A man travels the universe in search of what he needs and returns home to find it." added near the entry port of every ship he purchases?

They already disappeared off the face of the cluster when Skyrim came out. If this is actually released and does well, they'll never come back. :lol:

Lagging Behind

Morwen's Law:
1) The number of capsuleer women who are bisexual is greater than the number who are lesbian.
2) Most of the former group appear lesbian due to a lack of suitable male partners to go around.
3) The lack of suitable male partners can be summed up in most cases thusly: interested, worth the air they breathe, available; pick two.

Probably not for me. I play the Elder Scrolls for some quality no-other-people + fun exploring time, not for the chance to gang up and do multiplayer. I have plenty of games for that, including Eve.

Agreed - looking forward to it none the less, to see if its in anyway unique and not TES mod for WOW :s

This makes me so angry in so many ways.

MMOs are the complete opposite of what made Elder Scrolls games so great. I won't even bother arguing with anyone here about why that is.

It doesn't matter anyways, because you can now say goodbye to Elder Scrolls VI. Skyrim was the last single player game for Elder Scrolls. Why bother making more single player blockbusters when you can add another shitty expansion to what will probably be another worthless MMO.

It should be noted that all of the Elder Scrolls games have been released with game breaking bugs and stability issues. The MMO will be no different.

My prediction?

It'll be released with your typical subscription fee, then bomb, then go free-to-play. I can only hope this happens in a short time so they can go back to making SP games.

Enough of this MMO crap. BRING BACK REAL RPGs!

Honestly I lost interest when Molag Bal was the main Daedric enemy.

That particular Daedra is based on things that rub me really bad.

I would kill to play a game like Skyrim in a small-scale co-op mode (2-4) akin to Borderlands. Imho that's the best of both worlds, typical Elder Scrolls gameplay and playing it with friends. But as an mmo... I don't know. It depends on how many contemporary MMO game mechanics they have to squeeze into the game, i.e. classes, 'grind' and linear progression.
Therefore I hope they're not simply going to cook up a standard MMO with the TES setting + the one defining feature ( hello SW:TOR ).

My only question about this is:  can I play a Dark Elf sniper with a Soul Trapping bow?


(j/k, I probably won't play it.)

I have no faith in this game being balanced and at all engaging, it'll be heaven for min/maxers though.

Bethesda have never shown their ability to create a balanced game, gorgeous great big open scale enviroments sure. But the only reason they're fun to the individual is you can play how you like.

Pretty much true. I can't think of a single Bethesda game (except Brink I suppose, but I think Splash Damage did the actual development there, yeah?) where you couldn't completely break the game and become completely overpowered.

Mmh. Yeah, Molag Bal is, more than most, viscerally E-ville. His quest in "Oblivion" involved corrupting a retired paladin. His quest in Skyrim involves beating a defenseless, trapped (if irascible) old man to death with a rusted mace. He's got an impressive record of leaving me feeling dirty on the basis of wholly fictional acts.

I don't think I'll be taking part in TES Online, though; for me, much of the fun of the series is the permanent impact you can leave on your surroundings.

Actually assassinating, for instance, named, unique NPCs who have an existence outside of the quest line is sort of anathema to an MMO, which must necessarily have either a persistent or persistent-ish world (lest some merry psychopath depopulate all the NPCs).

Also, TES has always treated death as permanent, the only exception being ... um, dealings with Molag Bal.

Oh, dear. Well, that's one way to explain a respawn mechanic.

Ah-- there are also acts of the gods, ala Knights of the Nine, but that's ... less ... common? I think?

I think I will skip this. I have grown to dislike the "Fantasy MMO" genre, and this looks to be more of the same.
