So Aeth, discussion in the General Game forum suggest ESO is going to be PVP-centric.
O.K. I missed that. Thanks for mentioning it. What the **** does PVP-centric mean?
I know what PvP is. The discussion makes it sound like the game will center on PvP with maybe a bit of PvE to get the PvPers leveled up. That means I mentally strike it from my list of "must do" games. So it is said, so it is done. (All hail Ramses the Great.)
But then I read a bit of this poorly written, sycophantic info
and it made me curious enough to read a bit more in the "gameplay" area of that site. My hope is restored and the game is physically unstricken (I just made that word up). It sounds an awful lot like GW2 in the sense that it is a single PvP zone with three factions fighting over different objectives in large scale fights, etc. The plan is for it to mean something and have some impact on the PvE aspect, from what I can glean.
Not too horrible, as long as the "impact" is nothing too impactful. It seems that they are maybe going to have the main boss available only to the faction that controls . . . something . . . PvP-wise. If that's true, it won't last long. How long will one faction have solo access to the main boss before everyone interested in raiding the main boss switches to that faction? Maybe if they limited the amount of time the main boss could be accessed, and gave the faction that controls that something PvP-wise a little longer access time, I could see it working.
So, hopefully, the "ESO will be PvP-centric" is either a dumb rumor or the developers' way of trying to garner interest with PvP-centric types. Remember, this is no longer The Age of Aquarius. Today, lies sell and being truthful is for the hopeless and naive.
But, still, no personal housing? Whaaaa???!!?!? I was hoping to invite Maz to my place and shoot an arrow into his knee. Or sneak into Digg's place and steal his butterfly collection. EDIT: to, too, two. Edited, Jun 13th 2013 11:32am by cynyck Edited, Jun 13th 2013 11:32am by cynyck
