    M'aiq wasnt to bad considering he is rare and his dialogue changes when u find him in different area's. its mainly the 'D'is one' and the fact the pre craglorn im stuck in Reapers march as EP . Although the v5 starting area for EP makes up for it. Chests , chests everywhere. i made like 80k one night in around 1h30min while herb farming

    Where can I check the number of people playing this game ATM?
    Tried google but failed, either I'm too stupid or there is no way to check it atm.

    You would have to wait till zenimax gives us a number I would guess.

    I do wish to be able to do a few of the group things here and there once (while the trials do look cool I am not that bent up to do them minus just knowing the lore there) The story in this game is so amazing and what keeps me playing number one above everything else.


    In reference a few posts back when I got to Coldharbour as EP I saw EP people as well that I had connected with in other areas, I was wondering if each faction maybe saw more of their own for flavor compared to other factions? Considering that can have duplicate zones for VR areas compared to Normal and other factions VR why not being able to vary a few NPC's as well??

    As far as the EP characters I saw - Holgunn, Walks-in-Ash, Captain One-Eye, Kireth and her brother (dark elf dwemer experts), and some others that I know I saw but more minor characters.

    Just curiosity, it does not matter at all.

    Let it be clear that I'm not trying to judge it in any way, shape or form, I just wanted to know how many people were playing it, that's all.

    No underlying reasons, I swear

    I can attest to that as well. Still see towns very busy with lots of players.

He's now leveling an alt, taking his time questing, and having a much more enjoyable experience.

    I've thought the same thing about Wildstar. It's definitely a game that caters to the polar opposite type of player than I am. I've been searching for the RPG part of an MMO for a long time. I really hope ESO continues to expand on that since as far as I'm concerned that singles them out in the market.
    I'm in the same boat too. Wildstar's hardcore focus turns me off, and I'm not very interested in Craglorn's "hardcore" content either. I wish they give us some options to explore Craglorn solo. Still, I like a lot what they're promising in their future updates ("The Road Ahead - June 4th") so I'm happy for now.

    When we looked at their ruins, we marked the danger of that height.

    Private company, the odds of them putting out numbers (especially before console release) are pretty low.

    My theory is that if the numbers were great they would have released them so its nothing impressive.
    However it is unlikely they will ever give an account of how big the post release dip was.
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death

    I was going to criticize that this topic has come up again, but MMO-C does not have a very good search function, and this is a mega thread...

    ZOS (makes of ESO) and Bethesda (makers of ES series) are sister companies owned by Zenimax Media. Zenimax media is a private company, so they don't release quarterly results. As a rule the company rarely release sales numbers because they don't serve any useful function. Take Dishonored which was a successful game for them but they did not release sales numbers. Why? Because then these forums are going to be filled with people comparing the sales numbers of Dishonored 1 vs 2. They don't want that conversation.

    They released the numbers for Skyrim because the numbers were incredibly high, but beyond that they just don't give official numbers for their games. Also even if they were going to release sales numbers they would only do so when ALL of the platform versions are on sale.

    •••

    I had to take apart my gaming computer because my house is getting some work done on it. I NEED MY ESO FIX!!!!!!!!

    OH i know this game , its the game where i pull statistics or theories out of my arse .

    If anything why would the post numbers until console releases?

    I really dont see the point in people coming in this thread to say how shit the game has done when they or us have no clue.

    In game atm and the bank is full of people in a lvl 30 zone , so go figure.

    I definitely saw the dark elf dwemer experts. I want to say I saw the others too, but I wouldn't have been familiar with them and I finished Coldharbour long enough ago to forget.

    For DC the following were ours: Darien, Gabrielle, Lady Laurent, Stibbons, and the banker (lol :P). Might be more I don't remember. The Hollow City is the only one I never got around to going into every building and talking to every NPC. It started because I was waiting to unlock the whole city and then next thing I knew I was done with the zone and I figured everyone's dialog would be different if I talked to them.

    I'm not even out of Auridon for AD yet, but I recognized Telenger and I think one of the merchants from Skywatch, a khajiit named Irrki, is also in Coldharbour later. Then there's also High Kinslady Estre, who I already knew was a bad seed thanks to seeing in the 'game' area of Coldharbour. So, basically Coldharbour spoiled the main quest line of Auridon for me before I ever got to do it. :P

    Nobody in their right mind would unless they're forced to by being a public company. You think Blizzard would have reported they lost almost a million subscribers in one quarter if they weren't required to?

    Everyone I've seen come into this thread asking for numbers only seems concerned in an official affirmation of their dislike for the game.

    Anyone sure how long this maintenance will take? I'm eager to blow things up and I can't seem to find the maintenance time frame anywhere.

    Is anyone else experiencing choppy frame rates and screen freezes since today's maintenance/patch?

    My bf's also getting a lot of loading screens traveling through town that just started today as well.

    Hey everyone. Look at this video recently released from Zenimax.



    At the 0:58 moment there are some bridges and waterfalls in a jungle area. Where is that?
