I checked the threads, but didn't see one for this game.
I know there are games that I'm not playing that I want to get back to, but DAMN if I don't want to bumrush motherfuckers to get this shit in my hands!
It's still in early Beta (fuckers haven't sent me an invite yet), but they posted a link to a review by Matt Firor (Game Director of ESO).

Click through and hit the second page for a video... it's kinda old, it still rocks.
Then there are a bunch more on YouTube, including more recent shit.

But seriously... fuck yes!

You and I ain't been invited yet.

Yeah... I totally thought I'd get in by now.
But I'm probably not as hard-core as they were looking for in the first couple rounds.
I'm assuming I'll be a better fit no earlier than the 4th round, due to my application responses.

I'm more of a solo, exploration, play-and-look-for-glitches type of play-tester.
So...

Well, I finally got in the beta... late last year I think?
Granted, it's only been a few select weekends... but hey, it's something.

Of course, I can't really say anything, but it's been a lot of fun so far!
After a beta weekend, I can't seem to muster much oomph to play any other MMOs... so that's a good sign.

YAY!
The NDA has been lifted!

Here's a couple shots of my main beta character, Soilsoul.
This first one is (obviously) from the Character Select screen.
(Starting with 8 character slots... not bad.)




Then this one is from when I was at an enchanting station.
(I was stuck on that view after trying to exit the enchanting table... yes, it's a well known bug and yes I reported it as well.)
Anyway... the sweetness...




Anyone else in beta?

NDA free beta event starts tomorrow at noon (EST) and goes until midnight Sunday (EST).
Why am I telling you this?

Because I have a beta code that I can share with some and was wondering if anyone here wanted to make use of it.

So... any takers?

I'm enjoying it overall.
After every beta, I haven't wanted to play any other MMO for a couple days.
There are a few things I'd like to see changed, which I've mentioned in feedback and bug reports, but it's not a game killer for me.


Either way, I'll take that as a "No", you're not interested in the beta code.

I have an invite to this beta anyway Kick, which i won't be using.

I think ESO suffers from a lack of instancing.

It doesn't feel like an Elder Scrolls game.

It feels like a generic MMO with Tamrielic window dressing to me.

That sense you get of a destiny in your usual Elder Scrolls game is kinda ruined by 20 other people running about doing the same dungeon, and mods respawning before your eyes.

I have a key for a friend, as well. I won't be doing any further beta runs myself. For me, it just came down to movement controls. Just not my cup of tea for how attacks/spells/etc. work and I don't want to retrain my motor skills for just one game.

I hear you on the controls.
That's one of the things I gave feedback about.
I told them we should be allowed to de-couple the mouse movement from being the view... and more keyboard options, so for instance, I could use right-click&hold for my view and change "Q" and "E" to be strafing buttons.
Not to mention, this would allow me to click on powers instead of having to use number keys.

Who knows, maybe they'll do some impressive polishing in the next month?

If I was allowed to rebind movement/attack stuff, I'd give it another shot. I'll admit that I've been ruined by WoW/SWTOR/LotRO/etc. So to switch it up is really hard. lol

Agreed.
I'm used to playing GW2 for the most part these days.

The game has crashed on me like 3 times today... yarg.
I finally gave up... for now.
I'll try changing a couple settings later and see if that helps.

Also, I think they allow re-binding to a degree... just not the mouse look thing.

Well, it's the final large scale beta weekend before launch (for PC/Mac).
And for this event, they've opened up the Imperial class for everyone to test.

They also changed up the tutorial/starting area so you start in the area relative to your race.


(It seems like I may be the only one here concerned with this game, but figured I'd put this info out there anyway.)

Not crazy about it, and have been hearing a lot of bad things. Still on my radar are Everquest Next, Black Desert and Bless.

I never got to a very level, I think my highest was 6.

I didn't want to power through, when I Beta I tend to explore a lot and look for fucked up visuals or my favorite, improper bounding boxes... so that I can stand in mid-air or something.

Anyway... I have to take a look at Everquest Next again.
But I don't have time for the games I have, much less adding on more!

I checked out Black Desert... looks cool for what it is, but doesn't look like something I'd HAVE to play.

Now Bless... that game looks pretty sweet.
The in-game graphics are smooth... I was especially taken by the slithery snakes I saw.
But the first video I saw... Holy. Shit.
Fuck.



Shit.



Holy.






Fuckshit.



That make-up editor!!!!

Holy crap... I can't believe how long it's been since I posted in this thread!

So... ESO is heading towards Update 6 now.
It's currently on the PlayTest server.

PLAY UPDATE 6 ON PTS!
Quote:
Here are some of the new changes you'll be able to test:

- The Champion System, a new way for veteran players to improve their characters
- The Justice System, which brings crime—and its repercussions—to Tamriel
- Gameplay and balance updates, including many ability changes
- An overhaul of the provisioning skill
- Collections, a new storage system for pets, mounts, and costumes
- Many bug fixes and other improvements, like our revamped tutorial
They're also re-doing the feel/flair of weapons.
For example, a big fuckin two-handed mace will swing slower and really "feel" like it's knocking the enemy silly.
Or dual-blades will be quick and nimble.
Staffs will shake and shit, like the power is really surging through them.

Lots of awesome shit in U6!

Also... a date has been set for console: June 9th
YAY!


At some point in time I'll post pics of all my current characters.
I had planed on doing that when they all hit 15, but I wanted to get their clothes/armor closer to how I want them to look first.
Then they added Dye Stations, so now it's a lot easier to make stuff match!
But I also started a new character not long ago who's now level 10.
So.. I'm not sure what I'm waiting for now, lol

Not that anybody is playing this that's still around, as far I know, but I figured I'd drop a line in here just for the fuck of it.

Turns out, my whole plan on leveling up and getting my armor in better order... it's kinda totally been on hold.
We babysat our niece a couple weeks ago (9 years old) and she's totally into Minecraft.
So, her and I play together when she's here.
Which then gets me in the mood to play.

Now I have this sweet world I'm exploring while making paths, tunnels, and supply areas.
In fact, after I hit Reply on this post I'm off to play some more.


(I'm sure I'll get back into ESO within a week or so, when 1.6 drops... that thing is INSANE!!!)

So, 1.6 dropped... as did the Tamriel Unlimited update.

What was that you just mumbled?
Did you say "What the fucking fuck is Tamriel Unlimited"?
Well, that's the new B2P version of ESO... now, you can play without a subscription!

I've started my 7th (of 8 slots) character.
He's a Khajiit named Ingozi and I made him specifically to steal from and kill NPCs. >:-)
(He's lvl 10 now)


Y'all should check it out!

Just checking in to say I deleted a character today.
That's all for now.

I'll probably post pics of my characters soon though.

maybe...

I don't have the pics of my roster yet.
Especially since I just made another new character last night.
(He's a Dark Elf, Nightblade named Ichorvis.)

But, I felt like sharing something.
So, here's a landscape shot I got a while back:




In related news, we're less than two weeks from the console release.
FINA-FUCKIN-LLY!

(Actually, I was totally wrong. It was about 3 weeks until console release, as of that last post.)

While I'm in this thread, I may as well leave another landscape shot for y'alls eyes.

Side note: If anyone is playing this and comes across "Lord Fat Bastard" in zone chat... he's basically a troll.

I like to bat him around. >: )
