That's great. For sure let us know how it is..

I just checked my email to see if i got accepted, but it looks like i did not. RATZ!

I'm really looking forward to ESO!

I got invited once again but I will not be participating. I really didn't care for how they handled parts of the game. Pretty sure you don't want to put up screenshots though since they plaster your email all over the screen to help protect their NDA. Just to warn you in case you don't want your email out there or the chance of them stumbling upon the image somehow and deciding they no longer wish to allow you access.

Like justanotherguy_20 said, you do know the license agreement for the closed beta is an NDA right? Better scrub those screenshots of any identifying information or you might lose beta access and maybe incur other penalties.

I am not really interested at all, I think they are too late to the MMO party and I am done paying monthly fees for games especially since it seems like this will be a $60 game plus $15 a month. There hasn't been a recent MMO that has been able to pull that off for very long, look at SWTOR it didn't take very long for them to cut the price and add free to play option.

4th time I get invited and you can't show around screenshots or else you'll lose all beta access. from what I know eso is a pay one time game like you buy the game and that's it but with some in game purchase not game breaking op purchases maybe some skins and costumes like in Tera online .

they keep your lvl soo im already far away into the game xD

well good luck

Nope, they've discounted that in their own FAQ. http://help.elderscrollsonline.com/



What payment model will The Elder Scrolls Online use?
We will be announcing exact payment methods at a later date, but globally we will be supporting multiple payment options. Players must purchase The Elder Scrolls Online in order to play it. They will have unlimited access for the first 30 days following activation and can continue beyond that with a subscription of $14.99/month (€12.99 / £8.99).



In general I am not fond of MMO mechanics, it was already annoying enough when they updated Skyrim to make smithing and other perks even more grindtastic.

well I didn't know that but its still worth the money in my opinion but there are some small things that other mmo's don't have but ESO does and makes the game a lot better and that is NPC can actually talk each have their own voice soo they read your quest I think that's awesome
I can't say anything more but I'm really enjoying the beta

I come from playing:

- Mu Online
- Gunbound
- Gunz
- WoW
- Tera Online ( new at it been playing for only 1 week)

The NPCs voices are terrible in it though in my opinion. Most of the NPCs made me cringe when they started talking and it was super obvious they were nothing more than text-to-speech programs behind it. Some NPCs were worse than others but a majority of them you could tell and it just bothered me. I had to ask a friend of mine if it was Microsoft Sam back for revenge or something.

Most awful beta experience I've had since Warhammer and Secret World. And the gameplay was exactly how I theorized it would be. I hope others enjoy it more than I did. I have no reason to scrutinize the game. Good luck to it. It wasn't for me.
