I'm really friggin' tired of this "Welcome to beta!" bait bullshit. Everywhere it says "redeem the code, download client and start playing!". Where as in fact it's only for a shitty beta weekend.
I kinda expected this to begin with, but got my hopes up when there wasn't even a mention of it being weekend anywhere in the redeeming process.
Had my hopes up, downloaded the monsterous game with it's 50GB installed size, and got met with the beta weekend bullshit.
And to this, we of course have the issue with getting a special race for the collectors edition. I was planning on buying it to at least get lost in the leveling for a bit, but this will for sure be the first time I actually boycott a game.
ESO is pretty nice once you get some levels under your belt, it's really crappy just like wow the early levels tho - seems to be the general consensus anyway of those that tried it more than lvl 5. Except the nods to former games, exploration etc.
What sucks with ESO is Zenimax' and Bethesda's business practice. They are even worse than Blizz at draconean moneygrabs of late, and the beta structure is really tiresome as well - don't get me wrong, it's their game and they obviously have their way to test it, but there is no encouragement to do so with this structure. All this stuff just makes it so that to actually give this game a chance it'd have to be the best game in the universe to be worth the investment, and it doesn't sound like it.
I'm genuinely sad at seeing the potential squandered. I hope they can turn it around.
Am I the only one that is sad we probably won't get new armor models for the new sets?
Its feb 6th, why cant i pick up my beta key?
So many former beta members who where too lazy to get over the beginning bits to the real game.
Makes me sad a great game like ESO is being attacked by lazy levellers.
So in the ESO beta key give away they use an image of an elf that looks suspiciously like Legolas and a imposing guy in armour that look a heck of a lot like the Witch King.
Which MMO are they advertising again?
Its only for a weekend? That's lame. Considering it says its downloading 21,602.51 MB. That seems rather large...

I've been dying to test this game out!
