Elder Scrolls Online Beta Signups Begin

I signed up. I do want to try this out even if I am a bit wary about a TES MMO.

New Frontiersman:
The trailer was interesting, I think I would have preferred gameplay footage though.

Same here. I do like fancy trailers, but I'd feel a bit more at ease if I got to see some in game stuff other than what we've been shown already. I'm a bit indifferent towards the game, at the moment. I'll wait to see what other content is released before I see if I should bother paying attention to it.

Signed up and got excellent chances for beta.
Never had any luck with beta sign ups before, so lets see how this works out..

attackshark:
so it's the lion, the dragon. . . and then the other dragon. okay. i guess.

It's a phoenix. It represents the Dominion.

I signed up with only an above average rating. Personally since I generally have a strong antipathy towards the mechanical mechanics of MMOs (something Guildwars 2 seems to have somewhat done away with somewhat and thus I intend to get it) I tend to play them with reckless abandon while doing incredibly stupid things. Furthermore I try to get to places where it is clear they do not want me to go while abusing game mechanics and playing like I am in another game tend to net very strange results. Personally I would consider myself a drunk, dumb, deaf, and blind bull high on caffeine in a China shop when it comes to playing MMOs and would be no exception in a buggy BETA.

I did not know that the Assassin's Brotherhood recruited Elven members.. Elven Ezio seems way too damn fast for how traditional Elder Scrolls combat goes... After that bit with the rope and the running and throwing knife I was expecting him to pull out a hidden blade and air assassinate the last dude..

This MMO looks a lot more 'interesting' that I had expected. Hmm..

Truth be told, I stopped feeling Elder Scrolls right after that standard MMO combat. I was hoping that'd they actually have the dev team that works on the Elder Scrolls games as reference so they could get that meaty combat right. Now it all just seems so artificial, like chicken nuggets. They could've really made this MMO stand out by making the experience similar to the actual Elder Scrolls games, just online..

Well I may still end up liking the thing depending on how well it executes and by that I mean ape off WoW.

From what I see here, I feel like a fair number of people were around for the E3 reveal, decided that it was too much like WoW-tRO, and left, only to come back now. I think it'd be prudent to mention that things have been fleshed out significantly, it looks like a real TES game, and it also looks fun. I signed up, was given an excellent chance, and am more than excited to give this game a test run.

Well, based on that trailer it looks like they aren't bringing Slow Fall back.

Therefore, this game will be terrible. QED.

Okay, not really. If it's F2P, I'll give it a shot (first MMO ever, yay), but I'm going in with low expectations. Especially if they make the lore more generic.

I just don't think it's really a TES game if you're not playing it in first person. Then, it's just another run-of-the-mill RPG. Besides open worlds, first person view is what really set the series apart.

I think I have a fair chance. Good Luck to all those who entered! Also, it will be perfect to test out my new gaming PC I just bought.

I think I have a fair chance myself. It said for me above average.

I mean I was honest in everything. The games I played, the games I tested, all the Elder Scrolls games I played, my computer specs and my detailed explanation. So I hope they take HONESTY into account, because if they actually believe someone (or some people) that CHECK EVERY SINGLE box and beta tested almost every MMO known to man so that they can get the excellent rating, then they are fools and they can personally suck it.

I guess with an online game, there will be no more single player/stand alone titles. Lame.

008Zulu:

You guess incorrectly. This is being made by Zenimax Online. Bethesda Game Studios, the studio responsible for the entire TES series, is still making single player TES games(though I wouldn't be surprised if another Fallout game comes first).

Yeah, open worlds, first person perspective and use-based skill gains. I am not optimistic for this game, but I'm willing to at least give it a chance. Hopefully ZeniO doesn't disappoint me as bad as Bioware did with SWTOR.

My computer started wheezing just from the trailer. I think I'll have to pass.

Andy Chalk:

An epic, live-action trailer

It's actually animated.

And I have a lot of beef with it and the game itself.

It's ugly, doesn't look promising or at ALL groundbreaking (which spells certain doom in MMORPG business world) and besides that it just doesn't seem to get the elder scrolls. Thousand years before skyrim people didn't have mechanical extending wooden bridges.

Eh, I could go more in depth, but it won't help. So I'll just continue ignoring this big pile of meh.

Dracthor:
If this was actual gameplay, I don't think I could toss them my money fast enough.

one day.. one day we will get there

Yeah, I'm dead keen for this, so I signed up. Not likely to get in though I'm guessing due to never having played many MMOs or beta tested anything.

Does anyone know if you'll receive an email letting you know you haven't been accepted?
I guess it wouldn't break my heart that much if I wasn't accepted, but I'd at least like to know as much.

MiskWisk:

Same. I'd love to play, but my PC barely runs Minesweeper these days. Shame, really, as I love TES.

Then again, plenty of people are saying it looks like WoW, and I've never played a more boring piece of shit than that snoozeathon. Perhaps it's best I can't run this.

No they will not send you an email. You see they always start off with a small amount of testers and then as the beta goes on they invite more and more people so they cant ever really tell you that you will not be accepted because you might at a later date.
