When I first heard about it I wanted it to die in a fire. Then I heard they were changing a lot of the things that pissed me off so I set aside my anger of yet another franchise I hold dear being utterly destroyed due to greed and stupidity, and started to look into it again. Then I wanted it to die in a fire all over again for a huge list of all new reasons.
If PVP and lack of housing are what's bothering you, just stop right now. The rest of the crap they've done will piss you off.
I may have just let out a disgruntled groan.
I just don't get why they'd make it a PVP-centric game? That boggles my mind.
I mean, let's point out that the only PVP MMO that has done well is EVE, which is essentially a different genre. So it's already a risky proposition.
But why the hell would you take ES, which has always been a solo PVE experience, and decide that it needs to be a multiplayer PVP experience?
How does that make any sense?
Honestly, if they had just made multiplayer Skyrim, and used city wards to open up player housing (maybe with some in-game manors that required high taxes in upkeep or something, for prestige), I feel like their profit potential would be way higher.
I just don't see most MMO players playing for PVP.
