I wonder if this game means there isn't going to be a continuation of the single player game? Single player has a hard time competing with a monthly subscription.

There is a good deal of concern with the state of this beta.

Many think it reflects how the official launch will look like. Bugs, broken quest chains, etc. WIthout going into much detail, many others have an optimistic conviction.

This is similar to a an old cartridge, testing the system which the new one will work on. A server stress test. We are running on an older patch number than what they currently have and are working on. I can only imagine the newer copy of the game has reason to be withheld until the official release. Technically everything in this old copy is suspect to complete absence in the actual game.

I am one of the hopeful.

It is actually pretty sad how many people insist they would try to release a game in this condition. I don't believe they will. They need to communicate to us.

Buying a PS4 and elderscrolls maybe

PC gaming is more inconveniencing to me than I care for, being forced to sit in a chair at a specific place in front of the keyboard, and my wrists are stationary for so long. I prefer the flexibility. And dedicating so much to one game also is not my favorite decision either. Cyberpunk 2077 (have played the pnp cyberpunk as well), god of war, space opera, traditional RPGs, etc etc

For gaming, I am in favor of the consoles, **** all the trying to build a computer so I can have wrist problems. I've done a lot of karate chops in my time, so the most my right side of my hand acts up after a few several hours of beta already.

I've heard that argument a lot, but it doesn't reassure me. Software devs are ALWAYS working on a newer version of their software. That doesn't mean they are making significant forward progress or that the new version is greatly improved from the old; the minute they go in and change a single spelling error from what's on the servers, it's a new build. I was in beta for a while—I went through about six tests—and I've seen the speed they clean up bugs at. It isn't fast enough to get all the broken quests they had fixed before release at the end of the month.

But more than that, the bugs I can be certain will eventually go away. That decision to dump everyone in the second area in instead of newbie island at game start? Two weeks before release? I've seen decisions like that send companies bankrupt. It's stupid, reckless, and expensive—only think of all the bugs they could have fixed instead!

I'm not. But then I recall a certain Might and Magic game for which everyone insisted 'it's not the final version, it will change before it comes out' and we know how that ended.

That said, I did have fun over beta, and even with the flaws in the last build there is a LOT of stuff to explore, monsters to kill, and loot to grab. But it's going to be rough on new players who are paying good money to run head-first into unsolvable quests and broken dungeons.

(Zenimax, if you're reading this—you are free to surprise me.)

prelaunch on sunday 7am ill be there

i was worried at first about the bugs but I am not anymore. I believe they had over a million people playing the beta at one time. 5 million registered for the beta.

They are offering a 12$ a month sub with 6 month purchase.

Joonas and mvass talked me into building a PC and the CPU/MOBO arrive tomorrow. I really needed a new PC after I spilled coffee on my laptop.

I have been so busy self employed doing a bunch of stuff but next week i take off

As will I. Yes, I've already had 260+ words on the subject of not believing Zenimax will iron out the big issues. Yes, all of that still applies. But as I said before, I had fun over beta. And as I've found myself trying to plan character builds ever since the last one, I figured I'd give it a shot.

So I guess I need to find a guild now.

I could recommend Black Market Wares to satisfy the merchant / crafting  aspects.

As far as a faction based or any other type of guild I don't know.. The one I picked are spread out over several MMOs and I don't expect it to be very engaging.

Something like that might work. I've been lurking a little around the Elderblade forums and I found out there is a UESP Guild. Nothing so far has screamed 'Kareeah this is the guild for you, join now!' yet though.

I've also thought about waiting until launch and looking around in-game, but as I'm crafting-obsessed at the best of times and I'll need someplace to sell the aftermath, sooner might be better than later.

Also, don't forget to start patching early!


Edit:

I know I should probably drag the monkey around to advertise my status as a beta-tester...but those Scuttler things are so cute. *undignified squee*

Woot, I finally found the Bosmer style book! I have discovered that the difficulty with playing a race that doesn't match your alliance is that the racial crafting materials tend to be weighted toward the 'native' races.

@Ohforf: It's on hold for now.

Edit: Oh, and I forgot to mention! I got a random invite yesterday, so I'm in a Guild called "Arrowfell" now.

this game is great

unfortunately early access codes were acquired by gold spammers - the bans hit 3 accounts, they just pop in more early access codes. They are pros and may have found a common Dupe glitch with the in game mailing system. *slow clap*

I am speculating in most of this by the way, during this maintenance while fixing and preparing an update, it could be easy for them to locate any mules ..

Basically what I am saying is the gold spammers tried, but GF. If retailers had managed the early access keys better then they would have had to purchase the game only to have their account banned for violation of TOS.

That explains why they shut down the mail yesterday.

I hope they can do something about it, I've been spending most of my time in guild chat away from the spammers. Do you know if there is any truth to the rumors of someone making an add-on to block the gold-bots? That might be an unexpected benefit to having such a mod-happy community as a fanbase.

Edit:

And drat it, if I'd realized how big the patch was I'd have started downloading it before doing chores instead of after finishing them. Oh well, off to Nifscope I guess...

Day 1 ESO is the first MMORPG to break a user rating of 9 on MMORPG.com

So today is official launch and I encounter very few bugs, no bugged quests. Official launch is incredible. I got my PC worked out finally as well.

I think this game brings a lot more to PVP / AVA than many MMO fans would even think possible in the past.

This is the best MMO I have ever played for sure.
