I don't have much faith in this turning out well and don't really care for MMOs, but here's hoping it isn't Old Republic all over again.

Naturally, my first reaction was "OMGOMGOMGOMG!". But now that I've regained my senses, I don't really see this ending well.

Regarding combat, http://imgur.com/a/fO9Ty#9 talks about the combat in the game and how "the reality of network latency and massively multiplayer games prevents TESO from following the real-time combat model that has driven the series since its inception". That doesn't seem to be a good sign. I almost want to say that it's complete bologna, since real-time combat MMOs have been coming out on a fairly regular basis recently, but that would just be me talking out of my ass.

Well, time will tell.

*cough* Tera *cough*

There's also rumors / supposed leaks going around that this'll use the same engine as TOR, except an earlier version of it (so, worse).

The combat in MMORPGs is the way it is because it works. Tera really isn't different from any other MMORPG. And there's nothing turn based about most MMOs these days, so I don't know why they use the term real time. MMOs tend to have an auto attack and everything else is done manually through button presses like with any other game.

I think if you want to play an Elder Scrolls MMORPG, it having MMORPG-ish combat is not the best excuse not to. Unless you just hate MMORPGs. In which case, you wouldn't have liked it from the start.

As far as the combat system goes, it's actually really different, you have to block and dodge manually (it's not percentage based like most other MMORPGs, like WoW), and you don't have to lock on to enemies to hit them, you just swing your weapon, and if it connects, damage, like Skyrim or Dark Souls or an endless number of action games.

The reason I bring it up is that it proves that you could very well make an MMORPG with Elder Scrolls gameplay, essentially all that you'd need to do is do what Tera did, but make it first person. Heck, even making it first person isn't essential, ES has had a third person camera since Morrowind.

From what I've read the gameplay is your typical 3rd person keybound cooldown attacks thingie (Plays like WoW basically) which is really disappointing.

Oh, yeah, forgot to mention but there's going to be a Beta and I signed up for it.

http://signup.elderscrollsonline.com/

You can too here.

I fully expect this to flop, I mean, this game is giving me serious flashbacks of TOR based on what the devs are saying about it, but at the very, very least I'm hoping the exploration will be worth the time and effort, I REALLY wanna see Blackmarsh and mainland Morrowind.

I have very little faith in this game, but I'll sign up for the beta and see what's up first.

Watch this end up being the best MMORPG ever, just because it's the one no one expects to be worth a damn.

It's such a shitty trailer. Like, it's cool, ok. But it's not Elder Scrolls.

I'm unsure as to what makes it Elder Scrolls or not, but I enjoyed it.

I liked it, too! Game will probably suck, but I'm more open to at least trying it now than I was when it was first announced. Damn me for giving Skyrim a chance and enjoying it.

It just doesn't feel like Elder Scrolls to me. It's too over the top and stylized, and the design of some stuff just feels off to me. Again, it's a fun trailer to watch, but the crazy ninja flips and wall scaling just seems out of place in TES to me.

That sure sounds like some Tim Curry doing the voice-over.

No Elder Scrolls Online for the toddlers-without-back-cards demographic, because this bitch just went subscription on y'alls asses.

What's a back card?

Anyone want a beta invite code? I got one recently, but I'd rather play modded up Skyrim!

So the pre-order bonus has just pissed off a lot of people. The treasure maps, early access and cosmetic pet are fine it is the fourth thing that is making people angry. Basically you pick a race and use them on any faction. So you can Khajits on the same faction as the Nords. Some people are pissed because they feel it screws up factions while others are pissed because they feel the faction system should not exist in the first place. I am fine with it but I don't think it should be a pre-order bonus like make it an unlockable by getting a certain level with a character on a certain faction. Like say get a Aldemari Dominion character to 40 and you can now use any race with that faction.

I think the other recent announcement is a bigger piss off. The Imperials a race they said weren't going to be playable will be playable but only if you buy the more expensive Imperial Edition. Their racial bonuses have not been announced but they can play on any faction. You also unlock the ability to craft imperial gear which you normally can't craft. I can frankly understand why this is a piss off.
