Another WoW clone cashing in on the Elder Scroll name.

It won't have any resemblance to the Elder Scroll series. It may have a story but nothing that makes an Elder Scroll game, well, an Elder Scroll game.

It would be cool if they used the daoc system instead of wow. I played daoc for some time, where I started using cirkle as my name troll skald..

I'll third that. I'm probably the only person on earth excited about D3 coming out just so I can play solo. However, this Elderscrollspooponearth game looks as exciting as the last time I went to the local American Legion to play bingo!

(as exciting as watching cow poo turn into fertilizer for you peoples that can't detect sarcasm online)

I was so damn excited to hear about this. Like more than anything in a loooong while (I have a sad life, I know ) The more I read and hear about it, the more upset and angry I get that it's not TES, and is WoW with a different name.

For the record, I wasn't kidding when I said boycott...

They can have whatever splinter group leaves WoW, and whomever can juggle both but if we have our way they won't get loyal TES fans. Someone else said it well in the other thread, why would you build an MMO around 11 million people that are already playing one, instead of the hundreds of millions that are not.

Limiting area access so they can sell it to you after launch? Combat with cooldowns, hotkeys and info bars? **** graphics and cartoony models? This is NOT an Elder Scrolls game and this is NOT Bethesda.

How do you suggest we do this? I like the idea of taking action to let Zenimax to know they are royally efing up TES with what they are doing, but I feel anything we do would fall on deaf ears. Especially since they've been working on this for the past several years already

Zenimax reeks of money grubbing big name, like EA. There's probably no way to get through to them, but at the very least we can make those who aren't already aware of the fact they're buying a horrible WoW clone.

We can argue seblantics all day! I don't think many "modern gamers" will get the Ultima reference.
