Let's face it, we still have to have a thread for this.  Anyway, I guess this is the latest update on the game:

http://www.gamespot.com/articles/elder-scrolls-online-voice-cast-is-seriously-impressive/1100-6417293/

Yes, that cast is pretty cool.  Well, some of them are, anyway.  I'm not sure why they bothered listing Jennifer Hale up there with the big names, as if her inclusion is somehow impressive, but whatever.

Anyway, is there anyone here who's actually planning on getting this when it comes out in a few months?

Most MMO subscriptions are $14.99 monthly.  That is less than what I would pay for dinner and a movie.  That's 30 days of entertainment vs. 1 evening out.  You make no sense.

The real question is whether TESO will be able to pull me away from Everquest Next.  I'm thinking the winner will be EQN.  But time will tell.

How do you tolerate a server full of idiots?

Well, I'm in a multi-game guild that is full of awesome non-idiots, so for me it's usually just a matter of turning off Global / General chat.  And also by not really doing the PVP thing.

But in the case I play a game my guild isn't in, I'm generally pretty good at finding the smart people.  They're the ones who speak in complete sentences.

I'm convinced there are no MMOs, no matter how well designed, that don't end up sucking as a result of terrible userbases. Based on my general experience of Bethesda fans, I don't think that's going to change, in fact it might even get worse.

Re: Voice cast. Who cares? Bethesda always rams star voice overs in their games and utilises them in an array of terribly underwhelming ways, usually by killing their characters 10 minutes after you meet them.

I've never seen the show, but just from reading the synopses on Wikipedia and articles like these, I can tell I'd hate it.

The difference is, with dinner and a movie you get to fuck the guy that's been pretending to be a hawt girl for the last 3 hours.

I'm not quite convinced all these actors wanted to do this. I think its bread and butter stuff, despite video games making much more money than movies. I saw Clease looking at his watch.

There are MMOs with wonderful communities.  Most of them are older - the original Everquest for instance (dating myself, perhaps?) has a great community.  There are always trolls... but well.  If you're bothered by those, what are you doing on TFES.org? 

I'm with you on voice cast, it's interesting but who cares, really... and I'm actually with you on what the playerbase of TESO is going to be like, at least at launch.  If my "main" guild doesn't go in with a decent presence I'll probably pass, because I know it'll be full of jerks.

No, most MMO subscriptions are actually free, or else just require a one-time payment (which ESO will still have on top of the subscription fee, I should point out).  It's an outdated business model, and ESO is not following the trend, but instead boldly going where other MMOs have failed miserably before.

I'll build on Crudblud's point.  It is entirely possible to find great communities inside MMOs themselves. 

However, in MMO forums, and in threads where MMOs are being discussed, you will find predominantly grumpy, joyless specimens of humanity who believe that their experience as a gamer gives them the right to criticize every development decision and pronounce grandiose generalities about a subject which is far more complicated than they know.  This is becoming one of those threads.  I like MMOs, I do not like debating their merits with people who don't.

Perhaps I also enjoy them because I know when to exit conversations before they get frustrating. :)  Bye gang.

We should make a FES guild in an MMO.
