TESO Beta...
« on: September 07, 2013, 11:01:37 AM »
Is anyone in the current TESO beta?  I just learned that if you use Gmail a lot of TESO invites go to their new "promotions" tab or the spam folder. Apparently I'd been invited to a stress test and didn't notice for a week until getting a 3rd email reminding me about it because I happened to check what promotion emails I had.

Can't say much due to NDA (Saying you're in the Beta is against NDA but they've officially said it's fine to mention as long as nothing is given away) but... damned impressive. Anyone else in to chat over PM?


*edit*

Well, hell. I figured there would be some others from here. Guess I'm luckier than usual on this game. Anyway, if you get an invite take advantage of it and let me know. I have ARR but after the initial excitement of the awesome FF intro tune I can't even get in to it after the sweet crack that is TESO.

I didn't apply or register or whatever for beta because from the previews I've read I have no interest in the game. Not because I'm a die hard ES fan thinking an MMO will ruin the franchise, but because it generally doesn't sound like a very interesting MMO.

Really jealous of you. My interest in TESO fluctuates between excitement and worry. I love the idea of an online Elder Scrolls game but am worried this is an MMO with Elder Scrolls elements to it instead. Guessing you are not allowed to confirm or deny it.

I can't discuss anything about the game as in features, graphics, screenshots, etc... but completely vague generalizations aren't an issue. :D

I was concerned it would be just-another-mmo with TES elements tacked in as well... but this is 100% TES with MMO tacked on.  After that it gets hard to get into details, but add ecstatic smiley faces.

Funny enough I'm the opposite way. Generally I love playing TES games because of the open world, but no matter how many times I say "I'm going to beat the game this time!" I always wander off and spend my play time exploring and screwing around and completely lose track of or stop caring about the main storyline. This time the story and world have equal pull. Taking something as massive and open as TES and adding a more compelling main story and a huge amount of other players... the effect of that on me makes crack look like candy cigarettes.

Video review of TESO:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=upE802rZl7Q

Summary:
- 1st person view sucks due to no collision
- Lag
- Race/Class paywalled
- Non-shared loot / Diablo 2 loot system
- Repetitive / boring / Slow / Shallow
- Mounts are vanilla WoW costy (or pay $ for it)
- Fully voiced

(I feel like Yggdrasil right now with all that recent relinking of news)
