Elder Scrolls: Online

Looks like I may have to look more into this when it comes out:

The Elder Scrolls Online

At least give it a chance to come out before you bash it.

Go check out the screenshots and gameplay review. Hell, the devs have openly admitted it'll use WoW's interface/combat style.

In the interest of full disclosure, one of those screenshots is WoW. The other is TES:Online.

If you can't figure out which is which, you've proven my point.

Found the Kotaku article: http://kotaku.com/5907598/first-elde...er-fantasy-mmo

Things start going wrong on the very first page of the story, as ZeniMax Online's Paul Sage says "it needs to be comfortable for people who are coming from a typical massively multiplayer game that has the same control mechanisms, but it also has to appeal to Skyrim players".

A page later? You're playing the game in third-person, and its combat centres around hotbars activating skills. Your attacks have cooldowns. In clear terms, that means no real-time combat. It is literally explained as using "World of Warcraft mechanics".

WoW mechanics & no real time combat means it's NOT an Elder Scrolls game. I just hope it doesn't bankrupt Zenimax to put out this POS. I played World of Warcraft after playing Dark Age of Camelot for 2 years. I never got past 33 in WoW and I bought it on release day. Just hated the whole implementation of the combat system.
