    Just watched Elder Scrolls Online cinematic trailer.... gobsmacked! It is the first studio released MMO trailer since WoW Burning Crusade that gave me goosebumps!

    Then immediately after watched that poorly played Youtube leaked footage ... doh!

    Leaked footage looks like an unpolished Age of Conan clone with a poor UI and without any of the atmosphere (sinister or otherwise) or immersion draw.

    That said, there are definitely hints of a potentially more fluid combat system than at least AoC. It is a shame the leaker was so incompetent and also didn't choose a melee character to really start to show the basic envelope of the combat system. I also like that the third-person camera movement has much more freedom (WoW-like) than I expected from other reports.

    For the combat system, there are important things like instant character turn (especially with mouse), skill switching, ability to skill-cancel (e.g. block in the middle of other actions), dodging mechanics (e.g. dodging melee, dodging targetted spells), actions while jumping/feet of the ground (especially magic and ranged users), turning in air, backpedelling speed vs forward motion, strafing speed, stamina impact on abilities, acceleration, deceleration, cooldown dominance, etc. These basics of the combat system are all especially important for a game that tries to avoid the traditional MMORPG/WoW realtime visual skill complexity.

    So, yeah, I have tempered my initial extreme enthusiasm for now until I see much much more. If anything Neverwinter Online is starting to look a little tempting, if only it were not a PW game.

    Separately, those who think WoW has *ever* had a poor starter experience (relative to the market of its day on each release) are insane. It is easily one of the best if not the best starter experience of all MMORPGs. Even the awesome LotR and AoC starters pale in comparison to the deep integration and therefore immersion, flexibility and overall appeal of WoW's starter areas.

    Go do level 1 combat in gw2 or wow. All you do is shoot fireballs. Stop judging the game on level 1 combat and tutorial zones.

    Yup.

    He was back peddling rather than blocking. Everyone who's played an action RPG knows that if you have a block / dodge button, back peddling isn't going to work because the game is designed around block/dodge.

    I'd wait until open beta(assuming there is one) to gather any kind of opinion on this game. The game is clearly not finished, and yet a lot of people think it's ok for them bash this game because it looks terrible. Oh my god, a game in beta looks bad? CALL THE POLICE!
    This is a real beta, not some marketing beta(aka open beta in most games).

    This is literally the only leaked beta video that has come out thus far, or from what at least I know of.

    The video is of an earlier beta build, character movement and some animations have been improved since this build.

    Not gonna post a direct link, but search for it on Dailymotion. It's still up there. Glad to see the tradition of ugly character models in an Elder Scrolls game continues :P

    If i see anyone running around with that monk hairstyle i will kill them on the spot...in Cyrodil. If its in the faction zones i will put them on my block list and hope they get phased out.

    I remember collecting wolf pelts when I first started playing WoW. Hardly the best starter experience. Or maybe your post is sarcasm, I can never tell on the internet.

    It's already been directly linked.

    Also, yeah they are ugly. It's TES. If you don't like TES you won't like TESO.

    I actually think the character models look better than the base models for Skyrim.

    How does judging how bad a game is make sense via watching only good videos? If you want to see how bad it is, watch videos about how it really is, not about how the developers show it off in 'sneak peaks' etc.

    Real videos, real experience.

    Intentionally sucking (back peddling rather than blocking), skipping any and all story, and running into a higher level area to get yourself killed in order to show a distorted picture of a game is not a "real" video.

    edit: It would be like if I made a video in WoW were I walked into a puddle and down myself 5 times and said "Game sucks. Don't buy it"

    editedit: I am not saying the game won't suck. But to not see through this blatant trolling is silly.

    The video looks like a lame Age of Conan Clone minus the interesting fighting mechanics and very outdated graphics. I lost my interest. And don't tell me "everything will change" - no, only details will change. After 9 years following every new MMORPG on the market from beta to final I can tell that the final game will be VERY similar to that beta video. It was the same with all others. From Warhammer Online to Star Wars the old Republic. Fanboys always telling me "all will change" - and only details changed. This game looks medicore and generic to me. Let's wait for the next hype...
