Yikes when, in the name of God, this I start this thread? Alrighty then let’s necro this.
Yeah, Columbus did and then he killed all the indians as “thank you”. Haha! Bitter historical jokes aside: no idea what happened since then and the latest update seems to have been in June, during Alpha.
I played The Elder Scrolls online with a friend this year and it was outstanding. Highly recommend it, unlike any MMO I’ve ever played and I bloody hate Skyrim. I hope I have time to play more soon!
Sincerely I think the MMO genre is a dying genre. I say this because it requires a profound real-time time investment. It’s not only online but also usually requires a lot of timing, planing, being online at precise times for specific events, and a varying amount of cash in order to fully “enjoy”.
Don’t feel like it’s the kind of game for a generation who’s working 2/3 jobs to afford living with their parents while they pay off their huge student’s debt.
Then again I might be either a) misinformed b) pessimistic or both. We’ll know in time.
On the technical side, very simply: Brazilian servers. if you got that, you got me to try it. The end.
Regarding everything else: friends who also play the same game or an active, generous and open community that might take me into their gilds! I used to love partaking in guilds and, as a very personal trait of my personality, I adore getting to know new people, online or in person.
I don’t care much about cosmetics but a pet-peeve is gender-locked classes. Why can’t I be a female warrior?
@Vindace (tagging you as you mentioned the same thing above): ever since I tried out ESO I realized that – and really, I’m sorry for saying this, everyone – perhaps paid or subscription-based MMOs work better, money-wise, then F2P with P2W elements. Pretty sure several of you won’t agree, and that’s fine, it’s just a feeling I got from playing ESO and it opened my eyes to how well economy can be based when you have a more fixed income from your player-base.
(Not to say a change in income is the ONE thing that will make all MMOs great, because it won’t. Administration, events, moderators, servers, etc, play a hell of a bigger role.)
