  • lads I've been getting them for weeks. Don't have a comp that'll run it tho so I can send em on to ye if ye want




  • So has anyone availed of the 50% off on steam yet?

    Or, how is the game these days? I havent played it since the beta, mightspend the 27quid on it if it's any use

    More chat on it going on in the Massivly Multiplayer thread.

    Me personally I said NOPE as soon as I heard about the duplication exploit/bug. Plan on going back to WoW...(god help me).




  • yeah i might end up doing the same :/ god help us all :D




  • Has anyone actually bought ESO and if so how are you finding it? I've been humming and hawing over it for a while now, but I've seen a lot of reviews on youtube and blogs etc that aren't really complementary about it. Also it seems like it's a bit of a money grabber.

  • Havent yet, and probably wont now that warlords of draenor is actually a decent expansion for wow.

    I was going to buy the 50% off steam version but i never did - got in the beta and didnt like the mmo feel to it, TES always seemed to me like it should be a single player game, at most a co-op. It was just odd seeing so many people running around doing the same starting area quests, zero immersion, not elderscrolly enough




  • Yeah, that was what I was thinking too. I'm not really into MMO at all. When it was announced I thought it would be something like Skyrim/Oblivion but that you could play with your friends if you wanted. I was really excited cos I thought you'd have the option of playing alone without seeing any other players at all, but that you'd get to explore all of Tamriel :( I watched a playthrough there now on youtube, and the UI type set up reminds me a bit of Assassin's Creed, which I wasn't really keen on.

    Then I saw this on YouTube. I've never wished I could be a game designer more!

    Yeah i bought it to try it out for the free month but you have to give your details and a payment before you can play. so i cancelled my account. Its going free to play on paddy's day so i might go back for that but its not a great game in its own right and is a terrible elder scrolls game.




  • Well ive been back on ESO since paddys day and im finding it much better this time around. Im playing the bollix out of it too, I was up till half five this morning just questing on me own doing a bit of crafting when my bags are full.
    I say if you like the elder scrolls buy it cheap. Oh and buy the imperial edition if you can as you get a mount for 1 gold.




  • I'm thinking of getting this to try it out for a bit. What's the online community like these days?

  • The community is amazing and the servers are chock full of people. Now is a great time to start back up. I love this game its awesome.




  • I'm really tempted since it's just become free to play. Can you really access anywhere in tamriel, and do you have to buy loads of add ons?




  • No you dont have to buy addons just try and get the imperial edition for the mounts and race bonus. Without that it will take a while to get a mount. Horses be very expensive. And yes tamriel is mostly there lots of smaller maps (they are huge) all making one huge big map.




  • OK, I'm a complete noob when it comes to MMO, can you tell me what way does it work? I've been watching a few play-throughs on youtube and there's still a few bits that I'm not sure about. Say it's a situation where I'm sent on a quest to kill...oh let's say a giant spider, and I know that while I'm doing this there's going to be other players roaming around. So when I get to the spider and there's other people there, who kills it? And what's the story with chests? Like if I kill some badass boss can someone else take all the loot out of the boss chest?




  • Im a noob aswell :P basically everyone piles on the boss and as long as you do enough damage to it you will get xp and a personal drop. Most of the bosses only drop gold for me but you generally get your reward when you hand the quest in.

  • Free weekend next weekend according to the email I just got.


    Dunno if its for everyone but I was on the Alpha/Beta and never bought the game.

  • Yeah i got that too, might give it a whirl for the buzz :)




  • Its for the people who did beta for them. Should be a fun weekend.




  • God damn it. I wish you could do a trial run of it. I don't fancy shelling out €75 in case I don't like it. :(

  • Download is 40gb for anyone interneticaly challenged.




  • Forgot about this, anyone on it?

    is it worth the download for a day?




  • I think the downloads worth it, its a fun game with some cool things to do and see. Sure download it when you sleep and it will be ready for you in the morning.




  • So what's the verdict? Just grabbed this on ps4. Gotta wait for my new hdd to arrive before downloading it. Did I just burn myself and waste the money or am I in for a good ES experience?

    apparently it's really decent, it's just not the same game as skyrim was - i'd say you'll get your money'sworth out of it tbh - sure let us know here after ye get it installed what ye think :)




  • So I finally got it installed, dunno if it was my connection or the Sony servers were in overdrive for this game but after somewhere around 70 hours of downloading I have it.

    It's pretty standard mmo in format, but it's a good twist on it. Combat is very elder scrolls, I'm a duel wielding kahjit stealthy fecker so can't really comment on magic stuff. The progression system takes a lil bit of getting used to.

    Overall I'm pretty happy with it!




  • Quick post to warn people off buying the imperial edition. Haven't received my imperial stuff. Apparently a somewhat more viable, still with pilots of issues, workaround is to buy the normal edition and grab the crowns from the store and buy the upgrades that way.

    Still having a ball in tamriel!




  • nice, i might actually grab it this weekend for something to do :)




  • hi all, quick question

    whats online play like for this game (xbox one) compared to destiny, my internet isn't the best but i am able to play on my own or a group of 3 with no issues on destiny, im just wondering will i have issues with this game as i know there are more people on the map?
