I was quite shocked how fast it went from subscription to buy-once+cash shop system like Guild Wars. Official info here: http://www.elderscro...gn=announcement

Also, they will release game on consoles.

 

Thoughts?

I preferred the old sub fee actually.

 

Btp, cash shop, and dlc all have potential for many issues depending on how they're implemented. I can easily see this being a cheesy series of cash grabs leading to a major flop but it does look like they have been tweaking things combat-wise and making improvements.

 

Since we can return for free, I can't see any downside to trying it out again in a month.

Depends on how they changed PVP... the idea of always requiring AoE setups and Restoration staff kinda killed off much customization outside of making a ganking build.

 

That and if they fixed shields to be not as powerful, but I doubt it.

I called this during those beta trial weekends, I was like "I'll try it in a years time when it's f2p" :Ha Ha Ha: Maybe not exactly f2p but close enough. This model is far more lucrative though and more appealing to console users who already pay a fee to Microsoft and Sony for online use. Last I recall the new consoles use an x86 architecture (same as PC's) so this wouldn't have cost them much at all to "port" the game over to consoles. No wonder they turned the game into a "jack of all trades, master of none " though, they had to really dumb it down for when it's available for  the console users.

Love me or hate me. I am flattered to make the minds of so many.

I am playing currently again. From fully understanding the system, I came back after a 6 months break. Now im completely clueless. 1.6 Has changed ALOT. It all seems for the better. No more softcaps, many skills are adjusted. Time will tell, for now im a complete nub again :D 

1.7 will be a complete new game. Fingers crossed!

May have to look at their build system again then, but I doubt it'll be much xD

So they changed this game only for the good! Its almost even lagfree and no longer fps crap! They adjusted animations on the skills and it improved big time. From having 5-10 fps in big fights to having 50 again <3 Im very positive again. Go go all b2p ESO!

We'll see... I need to get my add-ons again since their default UI is trash.

They made alot of crazy changes and it actually turned into a decent game.

 

The first couple weeks of Imperial city DLC release were just incredible non-stop pvp. It reminded me alot of the flagged town fighting pvp here, actually having combat system changes, new environment to fight in, and buildings to dance in and out of.

 

Needed a break from it but check out the promo video I made awhile back, it's been a lot of fun ^.^
