I don't think I'll play it, for multiple reasons.
1. $14.99/month fee. I know why they want to charge for it, but with so many great f2p games out there(that aren't all p2win), it's hard to want
to pay a subscription. The game will have to be REALLY good to warrant it.
2. I didn't ask for this game. I know, that makes me sound like an entitled brat, but I really didn't. I always wanted a multiplayer Elder
Scrolls game, sure. I love playing coop games with my wife. But I didn't want an MMO version of Elder Scrolls. Like, if we could coop Skyrim, that
would be awesome! I don't want a game where there's too many people running around. Granted, with how they're doing the server, I don't think
it'll be too over-crowded. But still, I always wanted a multiplayer one, not a MMO one.
3. Mods. I always mod my Elder Scrolls game. In a lot of ways, I feel like you have to. Bethesda makes great games, but they're always buggy as
hell, and need many, MANY improvements(opinion). So if this one is online, will modding be allowed for it?? Will I be able to mod the water, the
sky, the details in the grass?? Will I be able to change the character models to be better looking than they were?? Will I be able to add costumes,
customize things how I like it, add my own home, or any of that stuff that I've been allowed to do in all Elder Scrolls/Fallout games?? Probably
not, because it's all online, and competitive now.
4. This one ties in with 3. With no modding, means everyone will just have to deal with all of Bethesda's bugs. No more unofficial patches that
not only fix, but improve the game.
So yeah, with those 4 points there, I don't see myself getting into ESO. For those of you that do play, I hope you have a lot of fun.
